Business Owners Fight Back On Public Urination

Posted: Updated:

You know the saying when you got to go. You got to go. Well if you are in Allentown you better not urinate in public because you never know who may be watching. 

They look like scenes out of Punked or Candid Camera. But these are no pranks. What you are looking at is punishment for public pee-ers.

Fed up with a parade of people urinating outside their Allentown store in broad daylight, 2 owners who didn't want to be identified took matters into their own hands rigging up a camera and shower head in the back ally. What they get is a lot of water and a little revenge.  You got to admit it's pretty funny.

A motion detector on the security cameras alert the owner someone has come to "do business". Here's the fun part, a pipe drilled through the wall is connected to a high pressure water line and with one turn of the valve.

For 3 months the potty vigilante's have been catching and recording dozens people.  Not just men, but women and children.

They've caught so many people going; they even keep a score card of how many people they drench.

The owners admit they're having a little fun doing this. They even have plans to upgrade the system to monitor cameras from home. They say soon enough violators will get the message.
