He hates these mailboxes!

I'm sorry officer, I....I didn't know I couldn't do that.

Not knowing it was illegal is completely implausible. He should go with the Steve Martin, "I forgot" defense.

It's OK, Bubba doesn't know prison rape is illegal, either.

A few years back I saw the mailman take out 4 mailboxes in one day. Two on my street and two on the next street over. I figured if I complained, I'd never see my mail again.

Breaking mailboxes is a federal offense.

Sounds like he could use a little visit from...The Postmaster General!

Here in New England, snow plow operators are performance graded on "number of mailboxes harvested"

This guy wouldn't even rate "junior grit dispenser technician" at this rate.

In his defense, he does look like a complete moron.
 
2012-04-26 02:21:18 PM
Not knowing it was illegal still doesn't explain why he did it. What compels an idiot to destroy roadside structures? Because it's there? Because he thinks it's fun? Because he hates his truck?
 
2012-04-26 02:21:34 PM
Cuz he's a high plains drifter?
 
2012-04-26 02:24:25 PM
If the mailboxes didn't want to get runned over, they shoulda not been dressed so slutty.

Did he have a bald front tire?

A not-too-bright way of getting revenge on them while being too cowardly to actually go pick a fight.
 
2012-04-26 02:26:22 PM
know how you deal with people that vandalize mailboxes? throw a large rock through their back window after you follow 'em home.
 
2012-04-26 02:28:36 PM
Just get yourself a concrete manatee mailbox. Problem solved. You'll know exactly who was doing it by the oil trail.

If his neighbors are all black, does he get the daily double?

Did he stash his cash in the dash, but a gun he didn't carry?

Each person whose mailbox he ran over should get to take a turn smashing his truck with a mailbox. Problem solved.

I, too, am shocked that I was first. Shocked.

He should have used the Steve Martin "I forgot" defense as in "I forgot rape and murder were crimes".

Almost sounds like the author of tfa has had that same thought: "A neighbor who lives within a stone's throw of Burghardt's residence at 311½ Trefny Ave. called the Sheriff's Office on Saturday afternoon after she saw his truck drive over her mailbox."
 
2012-04-26 02:55:45 PM
isn't this a federal crime?
 
2012-04-26 02:58:20 PM
There is a name for this type of practice, it's called PUNK DRIVING" was once trying to explain this to some redneck from Houston, so he says follow me and I will show you how it is done. He pulls out a sawed off shotgun and obliterates the poor mailbox.

Well, I had to think real hard about that one, was in shock. Talk about a one up on you.
 
2012-04-26 03:00:24 PM
Now I'm wondering -- Does an action like this warrant an immediate summary death sentence according to 'Castle Doctrine'?

I looked that up online. $600 for a farkin' mailbox?

The mailboxes are fine, just the posts are broken. It's all good.

Or stick your mailbox on a 4x4, with the base in concrete. $30. And if some dumbass hits it with their truck, there's going to be way farking more than $30 in damaged to it.

Had some woman take our my parents' mailbox one time. Don't know if she was drunk or on the phone(parent's mailbox was on the far side of the road). Fortunately the road is a dead end, so just waited for her to come back.

I would be REALLY pissed if someone took out my mailbox. Its actually a slot in the front wall of my house.

One of the neighbors would't happen to be named Keesterman, would they?
 
2012-04-26 06:04:31 PM
He was obviously confused. It's not a crime to be a complete dick, unfortunately.

Lots of things are federal crimes. It's just that the feds might have a teeeeeeeensy bit more to do with their time than prosecute Pissy McPassiveAggressive.

back when we wore onions on our belts a young fellow doing this tomfoolery would be given the choice of jail or join the army. i guess the army got tired of having misfit scumbags with a chip on their shoulder that they were supposed to turn into men.

Meh, I keep a box of roofing nails in the glove box for those jobs. Better chance of karma leaving them on the side of the road changing a tire in rain or snow while dodging traffic. Who knows, this might get a chance to meet the guy that decided to run people over that day.
