Ivan the Tolerable: Gee, let me guess. 60+ year old angry entitled white guy? -looks at mugshot- Yup. Pretty much looks exactly like you would expect. Hopefully if we just give it a few years, the actuarial tables will catch up to this apparently very specific generation of insanely violent angry old white guys and we can go back to living in a (fairly) civilized society again.
MylesHeartVodak: I've kicked tree crews off of my property. Three out of three visits in the past 15 years, they have smashed down my fencing, destroyed a hedge line, and have never chipped the fallen trees or limbs. They make a mess and left it for me to deal with.The last time, I stood there and watched, then stopped them when they started hacking trees off at ground level, leaving the mess behind. Oh, they smashed the fence again, too. They threatened to call the local Sheriff - I said, "Fine, let's get a deputy here to document the property damage."I didn't bring out a gun, but my wife wanted to.A close friend once threatened a crew with a shotgun, after they woke him up at 6AM. He told them to come back later, or to come back with the police.We live in a very rural area. The Sheriff wouldn't be amused if they ever called his department.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: Damned branch managers are all assholes

skwerl: And what isn't mentioned in the article is that the old man probably refused to stay back out of harm's way. I have no problem with people watching me work but they dang sure better stay out of the work area. Either that or he was trying to tell the workers how to do their jobs. I won't tolerate that, either.
Gyrfalcon: That was bad and you should feel squirrel.
MythDragon: They wouldn't let him watch? If they are outside, they really don't have much of a choice.Tree crew: You can't watch us.Me (if I were so inclined to that sort of craziness): I'm just standing here in the street. Not watching you. I'm looking just to your left.Me: I'm not watching you. I'm not watching you.
