Porta Potties are disgusting enough to begin with, so seeing a man repeatedly expose himselffrom inside one while the door is open understandably made some witnesses quite touchy.
Confronted with just such a situation on Thursday in Portland, Oregon, a group of homeless people took matters into their own hands. They forced a man to stop pleasing himself in the public toilet by tipping over the can while the alleged defiler was inside, KATU TV reports.
Witnesses said they were disgusted by a 48-year-old homeless man who brazenly touched himself in the john.
"(He) was flashing us over and over again, and we asked him multiple times and told him to stop and he wouldn't," a woman said, according to Willamette Week.
Finally, somebody suggested toppling the toilet might be just the way to get the masturbating man to come around to their position against misusing the facilities.
The incident was immortalized on a cellphone video.

It worked. The grabby guy was covered in fecal matter when Portland Fire and Rescue crews arrived to free him, according to KOMONews.com.
Other than being covered in poop, the man was uninjured, KOIN.com reports.
Sgt. Willie Halliburton told the station the masturbator would not be cited for his actions.
"I think justice has been done," he said. "I’m not going to cite him or anything. I’m just going to give him a stern warning."
