    You think it’s bad here….where I lived in Oregon,the tweekers would take any and everything that was left outside or in a shed and not bolted down…and when you’d be at work,they’d graduate into going into the homes and taking stuff….that kinda crime,maybe bad here in certain parts of towns,but up there really bad just about everywhere on the I-5 corridor from Ashland to Portland,Oregon.

      Sitting on my friends couch in Portland listening to him brag about how much nicer Portland is then California. Suddenly we here bang, bang, bang, bang, bang,bang! It was a drive by shooting up the house across the street.

        Tbundy…When I was working at an AM/PM in Salem,Oregon,we’d hear gunshots all the time….once when the cashier at a Circle K was shot and killed a half mile away…on that same street at another job I had I was robbed at gunpoint….on my Birthday 1996…and twice after getting home from work my house was burglarized.

    Stealing tools and equipment?
    I wonder if he was looking to open his own lawn care business.

    Maybe instead of doing time, he can mow all the lawns in Inyo…

    Did you ever think this was a civil matter?

    Trouble…….not a civil matter….it would be like me going by your house,trespassing,stealing what I want out of your yard…..using it,and then,without consequences for stealing it,you having to use your time and money and going to civil court hoping a judge would believe your story and give you your stuff back…..civil matters aren’t going into someone’s yard,stealing what you need or want,and then letting a civil judge deciding who the stuff belongs to…Trouble,you gotta be kidding by saying that…..right ?….gosh,I hope someday we meet over a beer ….
