wow... just wow...   did the guy not know that placing the life and limb endangering traps was a crime in and of itself?  That would have just been more charges for the cops to add onto their report if they ever did discover it.   And anybody passing through is only going to get more interested when they see booby traps.  If they dont see the booby traps, and instead fall victim to them, then a cell phone call is going to bring loads of people with badges there anyways...   I guess what I am trying to say is; thank god he only killed himself with this amazingly unstable tower of stupidity...

The sheriff added the wire appeared to be the type used in pianos, but he said it's unclear what purpose it served as a security measure other than being dangerous to someone driving an all-terrain vehicle or motorcycle.

Ricketts was driving an ATV in the backyard of his property around 2:30 p.m. Saturday when was nearly decapitated after running into a fine, nearly invisible wire that was among the fortifications set up around four large marijuana plants, Apple said.


Sounds like it worked exactly as it was meant to.

Repo Man: There is something jarring about using the word grow in that fashion. "Hey Tom, you have a beautiful vegetable grow this year". "Mary Mary, quite contrary, how does your grow grow?"


Because it is a verb, not a noun, and it is idiotic and 100% wrong to ever use it that way.

Alright, I know this is not really relevant to the actual article but this has been making my head hurt for ages, and since I feel like shiat tonight anyway I'll finally ask the question:

Why in the unholy fark do people put news online and only tell you the damn town, county, or whatever the crap?  This is the godsdamned internet people!  No we do not magically know which state or even which vague region of the country you're in!  Hell we're not even sure which country you're in if your site is vague enough, and yes more than a few of them are.

People, tell us where in the frippity ratwaffles your nonsense is going down.  DO SO!

/Or don't bother to put it somewhere where people from all over the damn world have access to it
//Harrumph.

It is likely someone else set it up to take him out. What kind of a trap is that, especially if you yourself drive an ATV around your grow?

nohurtme: Quaker: HotIgneous Intruder: With the terrible growing season we've had in the east this year, you can bet that was some skunk weed, too.

Thank You, I'm getting old but thought 'I use to pay extra for skunk'.




I'm no expert, but IIRC the intense smell was a sign of high THC content.

mongbiohazard: Thrakkorzog: So the cops just automatically assume that they were his plants and booby traps and not put there buy someone else. I guess they figured they can get a slam dunk in the property forfeiture case since the guys dead. I wish the article mentioned the size of the property.

That's a very good point.


Also....... Legalize it already. How much more of this shiat do we farking need to endure because religious prudes want to dictate how other people should live and have no interest in how many lives are ruined because of their unwillingness to face facts? In an ostensibly free damn country no less.


Religion isn't the main problem. The problem is big pharma and the corps who make a fortune by avoiding this plant and its derivatives from hitting their bottom line.

Also, POS politicians like to assert their control (that whole Napoleonic complex thing).

berylman: It could be that someone else had planted it on his property especially if he had huge tracts of land so he was totally unaware of the traps... would make a little more sense.


All I got outta this was "huge tracts of land"!

But potheads can't say "marijuana garden"... That would sound way less trendy and hip.


Because (historically) criminal enterprises have never been referred to as gardens?

Grow is short for grow op, which is short for growing operation, which is what cops call four plants in a backyard.
So noun.

J. Frank Parnell: The word used was property, which often means acres out in the country.


FTFA:  Ricketts was driving an ATV in the backyard of his property around 2:30 p.m. Saturday when was nearly decapitated

Regardless, Darwin wins again.

he was in his backyard....maybe he wasn't a farker and actually had friends or even a family

J. Frank Parnell: Curious they never mention how this was discovered.

Police use ATVs to get around in the woods looking for crops. Maybe they took offense at his attempt to kill them, and moved the wires.

On the bright side, his booby trap worked, so he had that going for himself, which was nice.

I don't get why they add in "the coroner pronounced him dead at XX:00" BS in the articles. Newspapers are not legal documents, death certificates are. Just use the vernacular and tell us a ballpark of when the guy died, not when some poor schmuck with rubber gloves bagged him and tagged him.
