Quite alright man

What I think personally, about the entire thing is that the knee-jerk reaction on this one is somewhat tantamount to some of the global problems we face; not just in the USA....

Radical or extremism knee-jerk reactions.

one side says : "He was STUPID for allowing his own self to be put ina position that he COULD go to jail for such a circumstance"

the other side says: "But there comes a time and place when NOT to hurt people in the name of fairness!"

So the otherside retaliates by flooding emails to the management office and requesting removal of a Judge and the Upper management of the property? Isn't that equally as radical?

I'm thinking, instead, if they really want to help the old man, instead, setup a fund, pay for his sod with the fund, and let's get him out of jail, then appeal to that same judge to allow for it based on the helping party's willingness to straighten out what went wrong.

You know, renters don't complain when they have to put up a security deposit AND return the apartment in the condition that they first received it and why? Because it's in their contract to do so AND because well, they know they may NOT get their deposit back AND they may be sued if the damage is too extensive.

The same logic should apply here, if you KNOW it's in your contract to keep the landscape in a particular manner and you are not willing to do so, then don't sign the contract. IF you are willing to, but are put in a position that you can't any longer, either reach out for help to actually do so (Im sure the management office may have been willing to work with him to some degree), or look to your municipality to see if there is some subsidy that could offset your cost.

Ignoring a judges order to comply though, THEN asking for that judge to be removed simply because he or she believes they ruled with fairness to all parties is as equally un-American as is OUR seeming unwillingness to help those around us as a community.

Just my $.02

It's when people LIKE this man go to jail, and real criminals walk, THAT is injustice.

When it's over GRASS, and instead of helping, harming someone- THAT is injustice.

People starving in the streets? People LIKE THE PEOPLE WHO JAILED THIS MAN helped put them there.

Posts that make this man sound like he got what he deserved... NO COMMENT. I don't wanna be edited to death.

Just Google Beacon Woods Civic Association they actually have a website. These types of organizations actually disguise themselves as homeowners associations under the auspices of protecting their property values but in reality they are lifestyle enforcement communities who use their laws and policies to influence how you will live and behave in their neighborhood. Think equal rights to housing laws work? Wrong, that is why these communities associations were formed in the first place. I would never ever purchase a house in one of these types of developments.

Wow, it's amazing that you have this sort of thing going on in the U.S. The only thing we get in the UK is lots and lots of white people running around accusing other white people of being racist by sticking up plastic Santa Claus figures in their garden or having a Christmas Tree displayed prominently in their window. (At Christmas). Apparently this sort of thing is abusive to Muslims; although all of my Muslim friends don't actually think it is as they enjoy Christmas Day off work as much as the next person.

What it really is, is people with far too much time on their hands taking into their own heads to do what they think others would want them to do. Goodness knows why and they still don't do anythng worthwhile... they're just filling up their lives because they have nothing else. Still, it actually happens all over the world and can't really be stopped unless governments change the law to allow you to shoot jobsworths on sight. They're not going to do that because most of them work for the government anyway.

Many Regards,

Indeed, from someone who equates child molestation with keeping a green lawn, and who has the gall to instruct others to get their priorities straight.. You should be sick.

Absolutely mindless.
