    Those links weren't in the OP. The FN story leaves out some details.

    But hey, no worries. Unlike other posts, as least yours indicates a willingness to consider new information!

    But they didn't charge the owner with not having exit signs. Anyway, I read was tessie said.

    He wasn't doing it in his house.

    But thanks for posting more fiction. This thread needs more fiction

    I see so those rules apply to anyone that stands up for what they believe in and fights back? Good to know. I'll remember this is your take in future debates.

    He isn't "standing up for what he believes", unless you think that being a criminal is a religion.

My intent was to ask the poster if his believe the city should jail people for administrative violations. They guy did not have the correct exit signs, for example.

    I have been on the receiving end of a county bureaucrat who just didn't like"rich" people. What got my attention was the 67 code violations. That sounds like harassment. I want to know from those of you who agree he deserved to be put in jail if that applies to all other administrative violations. Would you expect jail time for someone who has one more pet that the city allows, for example?
    And if I want to farm pigs and/or run a port potty cleaning business in my backyard next to YOU, you are saying you wouldn't have a problem with that? How about an adult book store in a 2000 sq ft building in the back of my house? You'd be just peachy with that?

    His actions were against the law, yes?

    There have been many, many people that have stood up against laws they felt were unfair, non-violent that is, and changed them, yes?

    The property is titled as a church. There have been no property taxes assessed to the property since 2008 since it is a church.

    There's nothing non-violent about operating a unsafe public facility, and non-violent protestors don't lie about whether or not they're running a church to avoid paying taxes
