    Don't you wish you had official backing like this for code violaters

    Some background since I couldn't seem to find a link.

    BTK (Bind Torture Kill)
    A 20 year old serial killer that has never been caught has started sending official clues. Earlier this week he sent alot of specific info that should lead police to him. Yesterday morning we awoke to the news there had been an arrest and the media around here went crazy.

    So my point here is that they brought in SWAT teams and a huge amount of police force to go in and arrest this 64 year old man.

    ON code violations.... he needed to paint his house and he parked in his yard.

    The police held a press conference last night and said that this was not BTK and they were just making a code violation arrest.
    I found it funny that they seized his home computer. Were they checking to see if he had been surfing for his paint purchase???
    It is witch hunt crazy at this point. You know, these murders happened 20 years ago, the guy is sending clues, he wants to be caught, why not slow down and check things out without storming in. On a code violation.......
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    My building inspector/nuisance inspector was salivating when he read about the BTK raid over nuisance violations. I had to calm him down. My inspector wants to condemn a house for peeling paint. He claims it is a "blight" on the neighborhood because every other house within 4 blocks isn't peeling. So to smack him down a little, I reminded him that property values have been continuously rising in this neighborhood so the area is in no way blighted, peeling paint has nothing to do with the structural integrity of the house and we are not in the business of solving neighborhood squabbles. I've gotta keep my thumb on him. However, we have cleaned up this town alot.

    Hmm, I wonder if we should start running back ground checks on many of our code violators.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
