One of the things I wanted when we put together The Strangest Brew website a few months back was to have a section for some fun ranting (kindof like Peter Griffin’s “What Grinds My Gears”) but focus on stupid and evil people. This led to the WPIA (Worst Person In America) Championship Belt category. Past winners include Mayor Bloomberg, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and the most recent champ Paul Ryan.
I stumbled across this story last night while flipping the channels trying to find Elmo for my son to watch and was flabbergasted.
I can’t find the name of the officer responsible for the ticket so let’s refer to him as “Officer PP.” Officer PP is out there patrolling the crime ridden streets of Piedmont making sure that the criminal underbelly is kept in check.
For further proof of this officer’s honor and valor in the face of continual life-threatening challenges read the story below.

The family intends to challenge the ticket because, they claim, the boy did not actually finish the act.

A hefty fine for such a wee pee. A 3-year-old boy got his mother a $2,500 ticket in Oklahoma for going pee-pee in his own front yard. “I said really, he is 3 years old, and (the officer) said it doesn’t matter – it’s public urination,” grandmother Jennifer Warden said.
An Oklahoma mom got fined thousands of dollars when her 3-year-old son pulled down his pants to urinate on the family’s property. The potty-training toddler’s effort to not wet himself earned his mother a $2,500 ticket, the family said.
The boy, Dillan, was playing in their front yard on a rural road in Piedmont when nature called.
“Dillan pulled down his pants to pee outside, I guess, and the cop pulled up and asked for my license and told me he was going to give me a ticket for public urination,” Ashley Warden, the boy’s mother told CBS Oklahoma City affiliate News 9.
The officer told the family that just because the child is only 3 does not get them off the hook, according to Dillan’s grandmother, Jennifer Warden.
“I said really, he is 3 years old, and (the officer) said it doesn’t matter – it’s public urination,” Warden said.
The same police officer allegedly parks down the street from their 2.5 acres of property every day. When asked why he does this, the officer responded that it is a “public street and he wants to, so he can,” according to Warden.
“I am disappointed that the officer thinks,” she continued, “what he needs to do with my tax dollars is sitting and harassing our family.”
The family intends to challenge the ticket because, they claim, the boy did not actually finish the act, reported News 9.
The police department did not return the Daily News’ request for an interview.
This isn’t a situation where the family lives in a condo/townhouse development with shared community property and the houses share walls and the neighbors called to complain about the boy urinating. This family lives on a privately owned 2.5 acre property. And this cop apparently parks down the street every day. What a f#%king asshole. If a private citizen did that, he/she would be questioned for stalking and harassment but when Piedmont’s finest do it, it’s law enforcement. Maybe the pig was just annoyed when he realized the 3-year was hung better than he was.
The realistic best case scenario is the ticket is ripped up and it ends there, but this is the type of activity/action that should get a cop fired. This displays possible sociopathic tenancies at worst and absolute idiocy at best. The police, just like government in general, are a monopoly of force and no meaningul change is likely.
Paul Ryan had decided to mock Ron Paul voters, boy did that backfire. He (and Romney) got beat down and is now unable to meet his title defense requirements. Therefore the title has been stripped from him and awarded to the #1 contender, Officer PP.
Officer PP, you have won the title of Worst Person In America, defend it with the honor that only the scum of your ilk are capable of.
