Peeing British cop files human rights complaint against Lithuania

Kevin William Pitt, a British police officer, ought to think about leaving the police force and going to law school, since his frame of mind probably suits the legal profession better than writing parking tickets all day.

Pitt was fined 200 litas, about $60, for urinating on the office building of the president of Lithuania, the Baltic Times reports.

Last week a Lithuanian court rejected Pitt's appeal, so Pitt decided to file a human rights complaint with the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France.

Lithuania must not be a very oppressive nation, since Pitt's petition to the EU court regarding his "right to go" is the first human rights complaint against Lithuania to be brought before that body.

His "right to go" might also be called "Pitt's right to piss."
