So the article is actually super interesting. He lives across the street from a school, and he constantly had kids in his yard, destroying his yard, and also living endless amounts of trash. He had approached the school FIVES times, and each time they basically said deal with it. He contacted the police about trespassing, and the police said deal with it. So, he looked up his cities ordinances about fences, and found that he is allowed to put up an electric fence (provided he get a permit, which he did) as long as it was 1 foot into his property. He got out his survey from when he purchased the home, and then put it 1 foot within. The cops then came out and said he can’t do that, since kids could come onto his property and get hurt (he had it set basically to a “touch it and you’ll get shocked like a bug zapper” level and not a lethal level), so he told the cops to deal with it, and he wasn’t taking it down.
@MrDucky13, oh how the turntables...
@MrDucky13, that’s fantastic.
“Deal with your own problems.”
“Okay, I will.”
*shocked Pikachu face*
@MrDucky13, good for him. I don't know why the cops would give him a hard time. I have a cop in California and if I had a call like this that I went to I congratulate the homeowner for his creative thinking.
@I Are Lebo, they told him to deal with it so he did and now they’re telling him he’s not allowed to deal with it
@MrDucky13, I looked it up and read a few articles. He lives across from a bus stop not a school, and he was actually told by police that he needs to remove the fence because it isn’t technically on his property. He is however allowed to reinstall it as long as it’s on his property, which is cool.
It’s his property. I though we lived in ‘murica
@Uncut Bandito, oh I’m sorry I thought this was America
@Uncut Bandito, we do...unfortunately its easily triggered America
Wow that's awesome, fvck all those people telling him to deal with it it is his property. Just be glad he didn't turn it up to 11.
Good on him. Stuff like this starts to happen when people loose respect for one another.
Why didn’t he just put up a normal fence? Oh that’s right ‘murica
@fire911, so that it couldn’t be easily climbed over
@eleven, well since it’s ‘murica he could have placed a small mine field behind the fence....or just build a high fence
@eleven, The fence still would indicate his property way better than before he had no fence.
@Lethal Force Man, you know how else you can tell that it was no longer public property? Being a lawn and not the sidewalk. That's not the issue here. Had he put up a great big fence, it wouldn't stop these people who feel owed his land, labor, and tacit acceptance. A wooden fence would get kicked in and graffiti'd on. Chain link would get leaned on and eventually pushed/pulled over.
@Needless Contrarian, That's a bit of a strawmans argument. He would actually have a case if people were aswell destroying the fence. A simple fence would be acceptable, I've seen plenty in my neighborhood and they are practically new, with some weathering from rain and snow. This fence is practically the same as chain link, as it is susceptible to the same damage from all things being outside.
edit: I misunderstood the first sentence. treat this as deleted.
@Lethal Force Man, no worries my friend
@Needless Contrarian, I don't mean to obfuscate my other reply, I meant for this one only.
Dave Chappelle is one of the funniest dudes in the world.
Change my mind.
This hag called the cops 😂
Maybe just a regular fence?
You know if people raised their kids with respect this wouldn't even have been a problem.
My parents (and most of my friends parents) made sure to teach to stay off other people property unless those people give you permission
I honestly wish I had this problem just so I could use this solution. Fvcking hate crotch goblins and those who encourage their creation.
