I woke up, I didn't have my glasses on or my contacts in and all I see is this big burly figure standing in my doorway.

Aim the gun at the center of the blur.

Why was this guy not arrested for breaking and entering?

I was totally thinking that if that happened to me, and I didn't have glasses on, that guy was going to get shot.

There is no reason except the country protecting their own and the fact that they're going to have to pay now for him breaking and entering while doing his job. Arrest him now and that just helps the lawsuit.

Me too.

And nothing of value would be lost. Anyone who takes lawn height so seriously (in the middle of a drought even - where it is better to let the lawn grow a bit to retain whatever moisture there is) that they'd break into someone's house to yell at them, removing them from this earthly existence could only be considered a good thing for the rest of us.

An investigation also needs to be done on the police agency that wouldn't send out a car "because the guy in the house was a county employee...." (assuming that actually is accurate). Someone should be fired over that (not just the guy who broke in).

Firings? Nope. Hangings. Start with the goblin who broke into the house and don't quit until you reach the mayor.

Tar and feathers. Start with the BTK wannabe, and keep going up the line. Don't use that driveway sealant crap either, use good, old-fashioned hot tar.

her door was not locked, so it's not breaking and entering. why a women living alone would not locker her door is beyond me.

At least he was fired for doing it. Most cities/counties would be defending the compliance "officer" to the last.

He was fired. He claimed he thought he smelled something, so that's why he went in the house. She's suing. Good thing she had cameras, otherwise I'm sure the good ol' boys would have swept it all away.
 
2012-07-11 11:18:43 AM
I probably wouldn't have killed him. But I definitely would have held him at gunpoint until the police arrived.
 
2012-07-11 11:18:46 AM
Well, the lady ought to be able to pay for a nice lawn care company with the settlement coming out of this.

The compliance officer, 911 operator and supervisor should all loose their jobs. The county will be sued for 'supporting an illegal action, i.g. breaking and entering'.

BunkyBrewman: Why was this guy not arrested for breaking and entering?


exigent circumstances. In a tradition that goes back to British common law, property may be entered with out a warrant if the official has reason to believe that some ones life is at risk or the grass is over 3 1/2 inches long.

Here in Connecticut we had a nasty home invasion a few years ago that resulted in most of the family dying horribly. If woke to find some un-uniformed person standing over me I wouldn't given them a chance to prove they were really there about the grass.

In the video, the lawn you can see behind him at the door doesn't look that long.

"Breaking and entering" has nothing to do whether the door is locked or not.

There should be an emphasis on the cameras, because that's the only reason they fired him.

Wow, that dude has some cajones. Don't know about Georgia's gun laws, but I'm gonna guess that there is some sort of castle doctrine/stand your ground deal. That woman would probably have been totally justified putting a bullet between that goon's eyes. What the fark was he thinking going in there? I always operate under the assumption that if I walk into someone's house uninvited, I will be shot - which is why I've never gone into anyone's house uninvited. Unfortunately for us all, this woman either lacks an easily accessible firearm, or the will to use it.

Dammit - that should read "nothing to do *with* whether the door is locked or not."

As I mentioned before, if you shoot an officer, and he likely was an officer of some sort, then you get capital murder charges. It is almost impossible to win in this situation. Now anyone other than a cop, then stand your ground is ok.
 
2012-07-11 11:26:01 AM
The casual way he walks around the house makes me think this isn't the first time he's done this. I wonder how many times when he enters houses to give a notice things disappear.

There is, but when a county employee is involved it will get messy, also it did not appear he had a weapon, so there could be trouble. Two observations from this, 1 the county code enforcement probably wanted to be a cop but couldn't pass the physical so he found a job for fatasses with authority, 2. she should have locked her front door, doesn't excuse his behavior in the least but damn it is 2012 I know you live in the middle of nowhere but lock your farking door.

cgremlin: bongmiester: her door was not locked, so it's not breaking and entering.

"Breaking and entering" has nothing to do whether the door is locked or not.


my bad - you are correct:

breaking and entering v., n. entering a residence or other enclosed property through the slightest amount of force (even pushing open a door), without authorization. If there is intent to commit a crime, this is burglary. If there is no such intent, the breaking and entering alone is probably at least illegal trespass, which is a misdemeanor crime

She would have been justified, but she would also now be on death row. The only things states like that take more seriously than castle doctrine laws are laws that give absolute immunity to authority figures.

You shoot any kind of government official, in or out of uniform, for any reason - even if they break into your home high on crack and are raping you - you get the death penalty. They are a protected class now. Bad idea to ever let the peons question authority, ever.

Yep. Although I have 15 unloaded guns in reaching distance from my bed, the 12 gauge IS always loaded and ready.

Considering she would have had surveillance of the whole incident, I doubt it. Good luck getting a jury to convict after watching the guy tresspass into her house while she was sleeping.

Glad he was fired. She's hardly the only person in history to put off mowing the lawn. She has an easy lawn to mow. Instead of paying someone to do it, she should get a used mower off of Craigslist and do it herself. It's not rocket science, and it's not like they fine you for mowing your lawn poorly--they just fine you for not mowing it.

It's hot, it's unpleasant, it's real work, but it's not the end of the world to mow your own damn lawn, and it's not something you have to have a Y chromosome or a whole lot of strength to do--even with a push mower. You'll just feel it in the morning. [grin]

Most juries would probably take up a collection to replace the gun that would have been confiscated from her.
