If it's brown, flush it down. If it's yellow, you're under arrest

Las Vegas has passed an odd ordinance:

City officials have made it illegal to sleep within 500 feet of urine or feces, but the city attorney says the new law was passed by mistake and won't be enforced.

My headline is a bit misleading in that urine or feces in an "approved sanitary facility" can be within 500 feet of you while you sleep, so you can feel safe if you live in Vegas and you forgot to flush before bed. Still, if Las Vegas wants to target homelessness, one would think they could pass more sensible laws than this.
