    The question begged is...

    Why?

    Was it simply a deliberate act of obnoxiousness or something else, more necessity and lack of other facilities?

    "Why?"

    One thing in life is that it matters not how little or how much money you have you still gotta shit. Where you chose to shit on the other hand is a personal choice, maybe he was trying to connect with his hunter gatherer roots as being a CEO is as far as possible from that existence as you can get.

    From the article; "Douglas Macintosh, 64, is alleged to have befouled a footpath outside an apartment block 30 times in a year."

    Even if he *did* have the abrupt need to crap on occasion, doing it that often in exactly the same place pushes the credibility of that justification out of the window.

    No idea if this is true or not:

    It seems funny at first but the guy obviously has a serious anti-social mental health problem that needs attention. Taking a dump in public once, we'll you're just a prat who got caught because you weren't prepared or just plain lazy. This guy did it 30 times in the same place, that's some sort of OCD related mental health problem or an unresolved cry for help or attention. The guy doesn't need criminal charges, he needs to see a specialist before it completely tears his life apart.

    His reaction to being photographed in the act does seem to favor the 'cry for help' argument.

    Probably. But we should consider the possibility that it started off as a wilful anti social act, he got a kick out of it, and repeated it because that gave him a thrill of doing it and not being caught. In which case there's no excuse, he's just deliberately creating a public nuisance because the small pleasure of doing it and getting away with it counts more to him than the squalid public nuisance.

    I say make him force feed him a few turds, so that he learns that they aren't a nice thing to have to clear up.

    could he not afford a toilet?

    where there no toilets at work?

    was it in the same spot or area all 30 times?

    i wonder how many other people like to poo in public spaces that are not toilets?

    Are these the same people that make a mess of the toilets too?

    My old man was a jogger in his middle age. He said that jogging often made him need to go potty whilst out and about. He would proudly point out the places he'd taken a dump (not in the street) and tell the tale.

    But then he used to fart in elevators before sending it back down and various other 'pranks'.

    My little brother did something similar prank to me... we were in a crowded elevator at a very nice hotel near Disney Land in California. he ripped the loudest fart I have ever heard. then looked directly in the eye as he exclaimed out loud "what's wrong with you.. why could you not wait until we got out of the elevator" blaming the fart on me. que everyone looking at me with disgust and everyone getting off at the next floor. I didn't think it was very funny then, 25 years latter I look back on it a laugh. it was a pretty good prank.

    In the case of the poo-jogger, if it had been once or even twice as a prank, I could laugh it off, but 30 times... that's the sign of a disturbed individual.

    When I first moved to China, the change in food had a very strong effect on my gut bacteria's gas-production. I ducked into a fire-escape stair-well to save everyone from my emissions. Unfortunately the stairwell had the acoustic properties of a trumpet-bell and my bowel itself the properties of a very determined tuba learner. All through the several-story building!
