But the response, and quick action by authorities suggest someone of influence lives nearby. ie Cop, city council, city staff, or that guy that always has his little dog on his lap while driving his Subaru…oh and wearing a ‘Tilly hat’ while blocking the passing lane.
You know at some point you have to just question this guys brain power… well that and hearing… potentially his viewing and reading capacity too.
To see a violation notice as a permit well thats just rich :D. But to think to get away with it, wow. The fact that he can’t get headphones or for that matter listen to the music at normal levels makes me wonder if his hearing is impacted somehow…
All i can say is show some respect to the person(s) next to you…
Don’t buy a house 10′ away from the next one if you don’t want to see, smell, and hear everything that your neighbors are doing.
Cases like this set a precedent for future issues with similar circumstances. Does this mean every car with a loud sound system should be confiscated? What about those dogs in my neighbors backyard that never shut up, can we have those appropriated by the state?
I hope everyone that supports the actions of the police in this case loses something directly or indirectly as a result of the way this case was handled.
This man obviously invested a large sum of money in his stereo equipment, and if you are so quick to jump on the ’stripping assets’ boat, then you deserve to lose too.
I don’t think the average Tom, Dick or Jane have to worry about the cops seizing their their stero or barking dog. Look at the number of times the cops were at this place to deal with the noise problem…about eight times…before they applied for a search warrant to sieze the equipment. Any normal person would have turned down the noise after the first caution from the cops and had this “rocket scientist” done the same, he would still have his stero equipment. No this case does not set any precedent for the average person…just for those that continue to disrespect their neighbours and fail to use common sense.
