    I know it ain't going to help ranting here but we have had a huge influx of mofo ATV, dirt bikes & of all things golf carts modified to carry stolen property from the local landfill & other suspected drug related dealings.

    It's one thing to have to listen to these things during the day but when you disrupt my sleep it burns my F&*^%*$ cookies when one screams by at 12-3am at an average of twice the posted speed limit.

    The cops have been trying now that I told them I wasn't going to stop calling them but they are too afraid to even flip their lights on to get their attention because the riders might get hurt if they flee the scene.
    I've even gone to the city about this and they keep telling me it's a law enforcement issue not a city issue.

    I did finally find where one of the bastards lives today after they had flew past our house again twice today.
    the police were going to visit to warn them again but I doubt it will help.
    Apparently the riders have both been fined $1,000 each in the past few months but they continue to do it.

    What a :mad: 'd up system we have going these days.

    The bad guys won't get busted because they might sue the police for damages.:bs_flag:
    they need to have a shoot first ask questions later approach but not in this PC world we are living in.

    The whole thing is falling apart with a few that are not respecting the neighbourhoods they live in....

    I'm done ranting now...
    Please carry on with your day...

    Its not a city matter but a police matter? Who employs the police?
    Maybe its time to go to the media.

    Report them to the Game wardens. Let them know you saw them chasing animals. They are more likely to protect Babmi than tax payers.

    A few years ago, a couple guys broke into my neighbour's house in the middle of the night. One of the burglars appeared in the bedroom doorway, which woke up my neighbour. He flew out of bed and punched the guy in the face, which messed him up pretty badly so he wasn't going anywhere after that. My neighbour works in construction and he's pretty stocky. The other burglar took off.

    Anyhow, the cops showed up, assessed the situation, asked my neighbour how many times he hit the burglar. He said once. The cop said that was good, because if he hit the guy a second time, he would have been charged with assault. We're basically supposed to let intruders have free reign in our house until the police arrive, as long as they aren't being violent.

    Here we shoot them, then ask questions. And if they don't stop, we shoot them until they stop.

    There was just on the news today where 2 burglars beat up the boyfriend and the girlfriend got out the AR15 and shot one which later was found in the ditch dead. I didn't pay too much attention as to where it was.

    Just be glad you don't live in Baltimore...



    Actually these videos were the first to start this craze as if you search YouBoob you will find many 'Rideout' videos from all across the country. The police have been cracking down as in one compilation video I saw where the cops had blocked off roads to funnel them down into a expressway with very high Jersey Barriers so they had no escape and even had school buses and large trailers to haul off the mass arrests.
    I can imagine the defense when they went to court, but your honor it's they're first amendment right since they were filming it for youboob as it's considered 'Art'!

    In forested areas of Oregon there is a similar problem with dirt bikes and ATV's tearing up private forestland. One very effective solution was roofing nails on the illegal trails.

    Funny just searched for the story and found another older case and had to page down to find the latest incident, 30 miles south of Tampa, a little hick town north of Fort Lonesome.

    We had an idiot cop here in Detroit that tased a kid fleeing from them. Kid hit a parked car, died, police officer convicted of murder and now doing time.
    I would tell you and the neighbors line the street with old beaters to maybe slow them down but you’d probably get sued when some underaged punk driving an unregistered atv hits a car.

    I once had a neighbors kid shooting at my house at night with a pellet gun. when I confronted his asshole father he shrugged it off. I roofing nailed his gravel driveway really good. he was changing tires at an alarming rate for probably 2 years. moral of the story- don't fuck around with a fuckarounderer. you will eventually get fucked.

    Farmer friend of mine had a similar problem...

    Rigged up a manure spreader in a strategic location.

    Only had to do it once... :icon_fU:

    When we were kids dad always carved jack o'lanterns and put them on the gate post at the entrance to the farm. After a couple of years of punks smashing them he found an innovative solution. We had a manure pump and a manure gun and he rigged a line up to the gate and with switch in hand he waited. If they were driving their parent's car they had some real explaining to do because the punks and the open windows of their car took about 250 gallons of prime bovine excrement.

    A family of Snowmobilers use to use the cottage driveway to get off the lake on their way to the local saloon. My 3/16” link chain across drive got buried buy a snow plow just before an Arctic Cat hit it. Put an end to that.

    that's not very humorous that could have been fatal.
