Sadly Meatloaf, there are true idiots and aholes out there. And they don’t care if you are protecting your rights and property. Although down in the thread it talks about how the weed control guy DOES (”legally”) have right to access your property - at least in Washington State.
And of course anyone that DOES try to protect their property will get painted by the media as some nut. (Or an idiot and/or ahole.)
VERLOT, Washington State — The Snohomish County Medical Examiner on Tuesday identified Daniel L. Wasilchen as the man killed by deputies Friday night.
Wasilchen, 44, died from multiple gunshot wounds to his torso, the medical examiner said. His death was ruled a homicide.
The shooting apparently was linked to a disagreement over removal of noxious weeds on Wasilchen’s property.
The county’s noxious weed coordinator reportedly was going door-to-door Friday seeking homeowner permission to use an herbicide.
Wasilchen became confrontational and threatened to get a gun, officials said. The weed coordinator called 911.
So the cops shot him over weeds on his property?? Sounds like WA state to me!
I hear you. That’s why I live where I do. This state has enough crazies living up hollows to populate the whole country. Did I mention we’re all related?
Becoming confrontational isn’t the best approach, but
but Mr. Wasilchen may have had good reasons to not want
the weed patrol to scope out his property. I’m not sure
what I’d do in those circumstances. I also am not
accepting *as yet* the government officials story. One
does meet obnoxious confrontational ppl going door to
door in any capacity.
You nailed yourself by opening your mouth. If you were confident that your behavior and attitude were correct, why get irritated? Obviously, you have a problem with my calling your behavior foolish. What you describe as doing is not ‘protecting’ your property or rights in any way. What you describe is psychotic behavior. And of course, there will always be internet cowboys to come pat you on the back for it.
And the media could not have done a better job painting you as a nutcase as you did yourself.
