PJI sues San Francisco over public urinal

San Fran urinal (yes, you read that right)If any city allowed open-air restrooms it would be mega-liberal San Francisco, but a law firm is suing the city over the allowance.

Pacific Justice Institute founder Brad Dacus says PJI is demanding that the city abandon the open-air urinal "in a public park, right next to a train stop, right next to where lots and lots of children walk by every day."

OneNewsNow reported in February that PJI was complaining that San Francisco had constructed a men's restroom near a park and train stop, with a low concrete wall and a screen blocking the view – perhaps – of the passing public.

The open-air urinal is actually an attempt by the city to crack down on public urination at nearby Dolores Park.

The famously liberal city is known for flaunting decently. The county's Board of Supervisors banned public nudity in 2012 - by one vote - after pleas from businesses and residents. 

San Francisco Chronicle reported that PJI is representing the San Francisco Chinese Christian Union in a civil suit.
