    How about a link?
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

        If that was here and was, indeed, an illegal burn, and was not endangering anything, I'd have just stood by and let the Environmental Conservation police deal with it. They can write him a ticket.
        Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

          Actually, the idiot was the guy that was drinking and started a bonfire with tires in it, then was blocking the fire engine. The Chief just wasn't taking any of his crap.

            An illegal burn with tires, plastics, or other noxious materials gets put out period here. And if they.re drunk or disorderly, the cops get called too. If people cooperate and don't have a large amount burning, they get a warning. If they're blatantly burning large amounts or keep doing it, they get referred to the EPA, which likes to hand out big fines.

              No the chief escalated the situation - very simple to let the PD arrive --the fire was going nowhere -there is a big difference between taking crap and having a level head.

                If someone is going to escalate a situation with a drunk, I'd prefer to let the guys and gals with badges and guns do it. And the EnCon people can write the appropriate tickets - The police can't, and neither can I.

                A woman just got a ticket here for letting a small trash fire get out of hand. It burned five acres. And she wasn't drunk - very apologetic, actually.
                Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

                    If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!
