    Is pooping in public protected under the first amendment?

    The jogger has been pooping outside the Colorado Springs home of Cathy Budde at least once a week and cops have been trying to get to the bottom of the mystery.

    The supposed spokesman, who also claimed the woman underwent gender reassignment surgery, refused to provide any verification that he is representing the daring defecator’s family,

    Nevertheless, the Mad Pooper would like to apologize for her actions, said the unidentified man in a since-removed YouTube video, according to ABC affiliate KRDO.

    Her bathroom behavior is similar to breastfeeding in public and is protected under the First Amendment, the unidentified man claimed.

    I can possibly see how pooping in public is similar to breastfeeding. I have pooped in public, even in public neighborhoods. This was mainly due to me unable to hold "it" and find a restroom. Of course, I didn't want to get the poop all over my pants. We are all humans. Things like this happen.

    Sometimes, things like this happen but for the mad pooper, I hope she gets help. I definitely don't think this is a crime.

    Not a former Federal Prosecutor myself, but if I had to guess, I'd say defacement of public property, indecent exposure, littering and disorderly conduct might work its way into any charges or citations.

    Well.... sometimes, when you gotta go, you gotta go. The only question is "where" and there might not be a good answer.


    I don't think it should be treated as a serious crime, let alone get you on the sex offender list. More of a trespassing thing.

    I'm sympathetic if she has problems, but eventually she'll pick the wrong property to *** on and get herself shot.

    And that probably won't be a crime either, depending on the circumstances.

    Do you have your body parts mixed up? 1 is ****ting, the other is providing nutrition to a new born.
    I know of no feeding practice for babies to adults that includes ****ting as a source of nutrition.
    Do you?

    It seems clear from the story I heard that she knows what she's doing. She brings toilet paper, and has some sort of regular route she's working through.

    If it was a one time thing, that would be funny and embarrassing. This seems like something far weirder.

    I'm not sure if it's protected, but I'm sure my Dog will render his opinion with a Bit to the Ass.

    Re: Is pooping in public protected under the first amendment?

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
    To be protected by the 1st amendment, pooping on the lawn would have to be either free exercise of religion or peaceable assembly. The free exercise of religion cannot be used to violate somebody else's rights, or else the government would use that as justification to ignore the entire Bill of Rights, which defeats the purpose of the 1st amendment. Since pooping on somebody's lawn violates their property rights, it can't be free exercise of religion. The act of violating somebody else's rights also makes the assembly non-peaceable, so defecation can't be that either. Thus, in my opinion, public defecation is NOT protected by the 1st amendment.

    LOL. What have you been smoking? They are not even close to being similar.
