No, no. Let's not get carried away. I only meant some folks think they are the leash police. If a dog gets aggressive towards me or my dogs it may get spryed as well, as will 2 legged critters.

An off leash dog resulted in a disabling injury for my wife. Long story short.

At our local state park we have a horse rental. Loose dogs on an adjoining trail caused a rider to be thrown and severly injured.

I pass cars without honking as is required by Ohio law. It would probably freak somebody out if you actually did it.

They put speed cameras up in a school zone by me. Guess what happened? About a zillion people got tickets. Imagine if they did that on the parkways? The entire parkway would get ticketed since everyone is over the limit. This is a cash cow for the government.

I hate them too. Judge jury and executioner and nobody can know if they are actually set to specs or simply used to trap people. When I lived in Utah the public outcry was so loud they actually removed them a few months after putting them up.

But people could take a tip from a football coach I saw on TV a few yrs ago. At apress conference after winning the big game someone asked what his game plan was. He said "Well, FIRST we wanted to --take the officials out of the game--" Not meaning to run into them eat the penalty but make them get carried out. He meant: Don't commit any penalties that will cost us the game.

One of my own personal "mottos" from childhood has been: Never let The Man get the goods on you.

Not too sure that this is breaking a law, but I certainly hope so. I seem to get a mild enjoyment out of saving a few unsolicited offers in the mail from the different sordid credit card companies. When I have enough, and making sure that my name/identity is not on any paperwork, I will take the offers from one company and put them in another companies prepaid envelopes and mail them...

I can't believe it, I thought I was the only person who did that.

I would LOVE to clear my conscious of all the liberties I've taken with local, state and federal laws. But with big-brother monitoring our every key stroke ... I choose not to.

There are a couple of other dog owners who do the same thing. One owner has the dog leash attached, but doesn't hang onto it!
A 50lb off leash dog attacked my 7lb puppy while being held by a 76 yr old grandmother, nearly knocking over the grandmother while biting the puppy and putting the pup in a doggie hospital for 4 weeks and running up a $1000 vet bill. This HAD to be reported according to Ca. law and the owner was fined, had to put up a dangerious dog sign and was told the dog would be euthanized if he attacked anyone in the future. So, if you have a nice dog that won't hurt anyone and can't be hurt by another dog, OK.....but we need the leash laws......and, I experienced the reason why.

Had to check the knife in a bag (or lose it).
Was free checking of for me, but pretty silly as I've flown 100's of times since 911 and didn't hijack anything.
Had the exact hing happen. It was a bad a?? knife I had at the cabin and forgot about. They had a good laugh along with me. Have to admit it looked nasty on the xray machine......

I hope the owner of the unleashed dog paid the vet bill? I hope the fine was at least 3 figures and the dog should have been put down immediately not after the NEXT time it seriously injures another dog or human.

It should be legal to use a rocket launcher against those that litter.

Regarding off leash dogs -- this is a problem for us as they are usually not well behaved and come running over to our dog. Even if they are friendly, they get our dog excited and she can keel over due to a heart condition. Generally I shoo the other dog away but I always have to be watching out.

YESSIR! Here at the beach the signs clearly say dogs on leash at all times. However morons routinely work their dogs in the surf and on the sand. Kids and little ole ladies often get mowed down. Somebody calls 911 the injured party gets a trip to the ER and a bill for $2,500. There ought to be a law - no wait there is a law - just zero enforcement Its not the dog its the dumass owner.
