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

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.

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

johnny_vegas: 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.

the dying, twitching, moaning man on the blood-soaked ground may have alerted some people that all was not as well as it could be

I imagine being nearly decapitated it was more of a gurgle.

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?"

doglover: 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.

Anyone that knew him might want to know when he died.

A better question is why subby didn't submit "Apple can't cure Ricketts" as the headline.
