There's only one thing that he knows how to do well and he's often been told that he only should do what he knows how to do well.

I like to go
A whistling
Thru Portland's' downtown shops
And as I go
Folks say to me
'I really wish you'd stop.'

The nice thing is you can't hear the sound of a 22 over loud whistling.

Maybe local businesses should kick in for a surplus CIA "Noriega-Tested" sound system and set it up outside this guy's house with "Reign In Blood" on infinite loop.

Endive Wombat: What if it was a loud stereo system, does that change anything for you?

Yes. Then it would be a public performance and the RIAA would get involved and find out that you once knew someone whose kid downloaded the manah manah song from youtube so you would get sued for eleventy brazillian dollars because it caused NBC to go bankrupt and they had to lay off everyone and there was not enough cat food at the Shop Rite for them to eat and they all ended up starving to death.

Just wait until Spring when he tries to work construction again.  He'll have a terrible accident involving a nail gun and his tongue.

It's not like this is some random guy walking down the street who got arrested for whistling.  He thinks its his mission from god to do this all day, every day, as loud as he can no matter who it bothers or what it disrupts.  He's a farking nut, and a criminal.  He's been convicted of multiple offenses NOT related to this, and the recent ruling was the result of hundreds of complaints and multiple run-ins with the law specifically related to it.

If you think this is somehow what America stands for, you need to think a bit harder about the rights of others to not be contantly disturbed in the personal and professional dealings by some god-boy noise-machine who is intentionally flouting the law for Jesus.

Wait, if you can get arrested for being loud and annoying for whistling in restaurants and businesses, does that mean you can also be arrested for bringing loud and annoying kids into those same establishments?

/Kind of a fill in the blank statement. You can get arrested for bringing loud and annoying _____________ into this establishment.

I'm pretty sure this guy already works in my office complex.

If it was up to me I'd give him a working-over that would make Torquemada vomit in horror.
