What's worse than breaking your hand punching a refridgerator?
Getting locked up for doing it.
(no confirmation that he broke his hand...but seriously...ouch!)
I don't know all the facts and maybe there are extenuating circumstances, but a 76 yr old woman and a bag of bulk candy? Maybe I'm getting soft in my old age.
Wait a minute...Dude was charged with with "front yard parking" - only in Batavia!!
What are you getting at? That because of her she and that it was "only a bag of candy" that she should be let go?
Although ït does sound rib trivial, and it was only 14 bucks, I was always taught that stealing is stealing. (Period)
Better to clobber an inanimate object than a person you're having an argument with, no?
And you can be arrested and charged for it?
I should have been locked up a long time ago!
re: Front Yard Parking
It's a violation of Batavia City Code. Look it up.
Should the City or Law Enforcement get to pick and choose which codes they enforce?
Oh Bob, I am aware that it is a Batavia City Ordanence, and I agree that, because that, it should be enforced, however, I also think it is rediculaus!!
Cars parked in front yards is unsightly. And there's potential for utility (water / gas / sewer) line damage which is a safety issue.
Why not let people store their unsightly trash in front yards between weekly pickups too? Then the whole City could look like the slum my street was for nearly a couple years before Code Enforcement finally got its act together.
who would have thought $20,000 bond for assaulting a refrigerator? from past reports if he shows remorse, then adjudication for dismissal is in order.... howard, any word on the condition of refrigerator? or is it still running?
Good thing he has 10000 bail because he may be released and come punch my refrigerator.
It is better to punch your refrigerator than punch out your lights!!
Maybe it was William " the refrigerator " perry that used to play for the Chicago bears????.....as far as the 13.36$ in bulk candy, HAD to be a senior moment that probably could have been handled in the store....that's a joke...!!!
I am thinking I would rather see a few cars parked in yards in this city than all the trash I see walking the streets of Batavia...or perhaps, all the drug activity that circulates around our fine city....maybe law enforcement should focus on THAT!!!
$20,000 bond for punching a fridge? There HAS to be a LOT more to the story, or there is a problem...
