“You ought to be ashamed of yourselves!" he cried. "If you approve of that and you think that’s peaceable assembly, you need to be peed on. See how you like it.”
When it happened, the pissing incident immediately sent shock waves of outrage and disgust throughout the halls of the legislature, but it's never been proven that one of the protesters did it. It could have been some random homeless dude relieving himself after a long night on the heat grate, or even a carefree stray dog hiking its leg in the secretary's direction.

"The person or animal responsible for this act has never been identified," Occupy Nashville points out in a letter to the Judiciary Committee. "There's no evidence that the employee was intentionally targeted, and no one has shown a connection of any sort with Occupy Nashville. Chairman Watson's accusation was out of order under any circumstances, but it should certainly not be allowed to tarnish the honor and decorum of the House Judiciary Committee of the Tennessee General Assembly. Therefore, we the undersigned respectfully ask that his remarks be repudiated and stricken from the record and that Chairman Watson retract his accusation and apologize to Occupy Nashville and the people of Tennessee."
