Maybe we should arrest the owner of this land, since it's so brown. What is this world coming to? People that have power, do they abuse it? Well, we know the answer to that question. But at what cost is power abused!!!
There was a 70 old woman in Orem, Utah that was arrested Friday for refusing to accept a ticket for violating a city ordinance. Betty Perry hasn't watered her lawn in over a year because she can't just afford it.
Okay, so this town has a city ordinance. Does the tax payers money go to police driving around looking at lawns? Shouldn't this be up to other township officials? I guess crime is very low in Orem, Utah.
Conclusion : It's your property. Sure, beautification is mandatory in some towns, making it a law. You sometimes need a permit from your township to cut down trees. But to be arrested for a brown lawn? Okay, give me my ticket. If I don't accept it, put it in my mailbox. If anything, go back to the jail and mail the ticket as certified mail. Wouldn't this be cheaper than an arrest?
It will be good to know that officials released Betty Perry an hour later after realizing that custody was not appropriate. And that the officer who arrested her is suspended until further review. What se thee!!!
