Re: Field torn up update

You would fail to see the difference. The rest of us understand it.

There is a vast difference between using a tack strip to disable a vehicle,
and using an object designed to injure a person.

Re: Field torn up update

Well ,the law applys differently in different parts of the world, around
here I can have any numer 4x12 with rusty nails in it around my property, or
property that I rent.

If someone would hurt himself after blowing the tires on my 4x12's it would
be his problem.

Now for real life:
Animals could hurt themself on the rusty nails (I like animals in general)
People walking could hurt themself on the rusty nails (I like some people
too)
If a lowlife would crash his car and kill himself due to my 4x12's, I have
killed another human (low lifes are humans too), and that would hurt me....
I would probably never get over the fact that I killed someone, I would
never again find pleasure in flying and have to find another hobby.
However, the risk of someone killing themself due to a flat tire is small,
and I'm prepared to take that risk too...

In the case with the snowmobiles, I would put up signs first, and a nylon
rope about 25cm above the snow, trust me, I have accidently run a snowmobile
into a fence in about 80mph, it did get me to a hasty halt, and I did fall
off, but the steel wire was elastic enough to slow me down enough to not
hurt myself, a nylon rope would do the same, only in a more gentle way...

In none of these cases I would be held responsible, since the land belonged
to me, or was rented by me, that's how the law should work in my opinion.

Re: Field torn up update

That's how it SHOULD work, but there are all kinds of laws out there to
protect the innocents (like the kids who really don't know any better).
Things you do to protect your property could come under the attractive
nuisance laws

Re: Field torn up update

Our club contacted the local police district
and the park rangers who set up a sting operation using off-road motorcycles to
catch a few of the quadrunners. They had been tearing up our field, wrecking
our safety fences, setting fire to our operation shack, and raising hell after
drinking in the park where we fly. The parents of these miscreants had to pay
large fines before getting their delinquents' vehicles back from the impound.
We haven't seen hide nor hair of the scoundrels since the confiscation once
word got out that it would cost them dearly to get their quadrunners back. We
are keeping our fingers crossed that our problems have been solved.

So committing a crime is OK as long as it accomplishes the "desired result"?
My but you are pathetic. I was wrong. I take it all back Paul. You
wouldn't be sinking to their level. You'd be rising to it! As I'm sure
would be several others here.

Gee Paul, I was all wrong about you. You wouldn't be sinking to their
level. You'd be rising to it!

Notice how C.O. changes sides depending on which way the wind is blowing. Here
in the South, we call that a Mugwump. That's a bird who sits on the fence with
his mug on one side and his wump on the other, and he flies to whichever side
is the most popular. He's been ragging on Paul for several weeks, now he's
praising him...what a suck-up.

You have an odd way of describing it but, if that's what you want to call
it! Knock yourself out! No skin off my teeth!

I'd say you were lucky! I know a few areas where your ball bats would have
been answered with quite a few semi-automatic weapons. But of that's the
way you want to go...........

Re: Field torn up update

You know what, since you are so gifted with being able to solve any
situation, why don't you go to all these places and help them solve their
problems. It is plainly obvious that you have all the answers already.

According to the news from Iraq, this is a widely held belief in US
'intelligence'

Once again Paul decides to "what if?" a topic to death.

Tell us Paul, is this just an act with you or are you really this stupid?
