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
