Sure, Subby, but what will he do when the grass grows back? Sell another gun? Pretty soon, he'll have no guns left, then that's when they'll get him!

Is the grass okay?

SWAT units responded to the home, where the suspect had barricaded inside. The person was in custody as of 2:45 p.m.

I hope that damage the SWAT team did to his house was substantial.

At least he didn't burn down his house with himself inside and a few others after threatening the local code enforcement officer with a gun.

Which is what happened up my way several weeks ago.  (well... not yet anyway)

I'd contribute further, but i have a trebuchet i want to build in my back yard, and the west wall of my house is only halfway painted in the cheapest neon green i could find.

Parks, Streets, or Utilities do that stuff.  And then the cost it tacked on to the next water bill.

A simple manual push-reel mower is just $100, and doesn't require gas or electricity.  A $100 purchase could have prevented a felony.

Oh quite a few.

It's a municipal department that is often cost neutral when it comes to budget negotiations.
If, as is common, the muni cuts grass and fines and bills the owner, the muni comes out ahead.

Unless, of course, there is gun fire involved and the cops come out and there is paperwork.
At which point it's far less cost effective.

Odds are good their house was in a nice neighborhood, and therefore the police used kid-gloves

What can you do. You try to buy a lawn mower at the pawn shop, but then a bunch of thugs try to rob the place so you grab the shotgun instead. Once you get the taste for human blood you forget about mowing your lawn

More satisfying to either comply and do the worst lawnmowing job imaginable, i.e. hand-held clippers, weedeater, grass whip  or knuckle under and start mowing it at daybreak with a loud lawnmower, and do it in ten-minute increments with ten minute breaks.

Regardless of color or politics or socioeconomic considerations, can we agree that firing a gun at someone cutting your grass in Summer is just really rude?

I don't care if you are inside, sweat glued to your faux leather recliner, drapes drawn, dirty laundry piled on the floor, kitchen trash growing fragrant.....if someone is cutting your grass, let 'em and work the rest out later.

That was the Mayor's answer to the problem.
That night, however, another resident was at the meeting.
Turns out he was a world famous horticulturalist, specializing in Bamboos.
That is when things got really interesting.
We're talking slides and projectors.

There were rumors at some point the person with the Bamboo complaint and the resident who specialized in Bamboo had a brief but torrent affair.

When I found myself in a committee meeting wondering if he ever called her his little Panda I knew it was time to get out.

"Patriots" support the police 100% when the police are gunning down people for (insert activity) while black.  The second the police attempt to enforce laws against those same "patriots" , the police become 'jack-booted thugs.

(I'm not poking at you, valenumr, you just happen to be the guy talking as I draw on my own experiences.) Tip for the younger guys: Be careful what chores you volunteer for at the beginning of a relationship. They'll be your chores throughout the relationship. And don't ever fall into the trap that a chore should be yours because you're better at it. We're not really expected to be competent, just obedient.

It's not the HOA, it is the city. Except for maintaining actual shared spaces like a pool or some stupid wall, anything useful that an HOA supposedly does is already covered by most city codes. The city doesn't and shouldn't give a shiat about the color of your house, the types of flowers you plant, or whether you fly a flag. But overgrown, unkempt grass is a problem, and is already covered. 

So, in conclusion, fark HOAs still.

That's just silly in the grand scheme. A happy household has a bit of division of labor for sure, but it also has a bit of picking up the slack when your partner is having a down time. Also, just hire a house keeper to come in every couple of weeks. It will make life happy.

Hey, he'll still get a bill for the lawn crew.

And it's going to be minuscule compared to the bill he gets from his lawyers.
