Creepy Men Show Up in The Darnedest Places
Recently, Colorado police arrested a man who allegedly hid inside the tank of a portable toilet in Boulder. The man was discovered by a woman who entered the toilet at the Hanuman Yoga Festival and “noticed movement in the tank when she lifted the lid.” The suspect, who was covered in feces from the portable toilet, was able to flee the scene.
This past week, police in Vail, Colorado were able to apprehend Luke Chrisco, 30, during a traffic stop after a cop recognized him from the Boulder police description. Chrisco had been arrested in 2008 for panhandling and resisting police.
What possesses someone to climb into the filthy tank of a portable toilet? I would like to believe he was in there hiding from someone. Perhaps his life was in danger? Unfortunately, the more plausible explanation is darker with some disturbing sexual undertones. Was he peeping? Was he enjoying what he could see?
As I passed into adulthood and became more aware of the world around me, I was intrigued, yet horrified, to discover the seedy side of life, and what a certain, small percentage of people will do to satisfy their particular sexual appetites. I try not to pass judgment and firmly believe “to each their own” as long as it stays away from the eyes of the under-aged and occurs between consenting adults. However, it is not acceptable when another person is drawn into a sexual situation while either unaware, or against their will. It’s certainly not acceptable when a person is simply trying to use the portable toilet at a yoga festival in Boulder, Colorado and has a man lurking in the tank.
