What do you think the cop is getting out of writing $14 tickets, that you think makes him corrupt?
Yeah yeah, we get it man, do you feel better now?

I’ve already learned to take responsibility for my own actions rather than blaming others for doing their job if/when I do something wrong. It’s simple, when you do something wrong, man up and accept the consequences.

That's bad for the environment. Dormont boro tried to nail me when I sold my overtaxed duplex years ago. Said I poured too much concrete on my property. Had to show photos from when I purchased that it was already there. Some township/boros just like to tax the hell out of people. One of the reasons I left there.

I have family in Dormont. Still can’t figure out why they love living on a ridiculously steep hill, but they’re right near Beto’s so it’s a nice visit.

Ok, so let me jump back in here, after seeing posts from the law and order tribe, you know, 'do the crime pay the fine'...

In the original point I alluded to a scenario where someone had a circumstance in which it would be unjust to fine the person arbitrarily w/out a warning first. For example: Someone is ill or is temporarily incapacitated due to an injury. There has been a protracted period of heavy rains promoting rapid growth of grass in weeds. Prior to the period of incapacity, the person had begun work on the yard - conscientiously. While they are incapacitated and moreover, cannot afford to pay someone to tend to the yard, the police fine the person without issuing a warning. The person explains the situation to the police chief but the chief refuses to cancel the fine. The person can pay up or appear before the magistrate.

Is that the way we should want to be governed and policed? People complain about "Big Government" and being lorded over or tread upon by big gov't, but they tolerate being abused by their own municipalities - little (big) gov't, if you will!!!

These people are supposed to answer to us, the people, but we are supposed to roll over and submit to this kind of stuff...Really???
