Two reasons, he is a weird little shit and I have been drinking......in this case I think it would be best just to call the cops. ETA this is also the same guy that my dog bit a year ago.....

If it's on the curb it aint illegal...but confront them anyways.

If it is on the tree lawn, it is public
domain IIRC. If it is on your property,
he is tresspassing (of course).

Option two is to drink more, go out and
confront him with your dog, tape the
whole thing, and post it (after you post
bail)

Well if he is breaking a crime then sure, however if it isn't, now wouldn't be the best time. Since the dog bitting incident we have been walking on egg shells and since I have been drinking it wouldn't be smart to do....

He is taking the blanket that my friends dog pissed on!!!!!!!
Link Posted: 8/5/2005 5:23:49 PM EDT
put a bunch of dog shit. fish, etc... in your trash can, and i bet he'll stop going through it.
Link Posted: 8/5/2005 5:24:46 PM EDT
I do believe that the town or city owns 10 feet in from the curb.

Not illegal but definitely weird. I would have definitely drawn down on him...
Link Posted: 8/5/2005 5:25:42 PM EDT
Looks like a burned up frying pan and and old pair of boots. I am not worried about any personal information getting out because I shred all of that stuff, but I don't think he is smart enough to use it. He is just a creek. He looks like Jeffery Daughmer.

So he calls the cops on me and starts saying that I am being a pissed off drunk. I will talk to him tomorrow when I haven't been drinking.

In about a week, just walk up to him
and say: "By the way: I pissed on that
blanket." Then walk away.

Grab and empty trashcan and put something in it that will entice him, have it stickout out the top. Hockey stick, chainsaw. Something long.

Then suprise him.

Take the opportunity to screw with him. Go to the butcher's shop and get a pig head or something bloody and nasty and put it in the trash for him.... mooohhhahaaaaa.
Link Posted: 8/5/2005 5:38:19 PM EDT
Well I haven't seen him since he grabbed the cooler.

Be glad that someone is taking some of your trash and will be using it for something rather than letting
it get into the landfill.

Yep.

Garbage is defined as Abandoned Property.

As you don’t want it any more anybody who wants to can take it.

Remember the movie The Star Chamber?
The movie had some person’s garbage swiped or something like that. Michael Douglas, as a judge, declared that snooping in somebody’s garbage was Invasion of Privacy. A Real Life Judge explained that in the Real World garbage is, like I just explained, Abandoned Property and anybody who wants to can take it.

Yep, my grandpa used to go dumpster diving (not exactly the same thing) and scrounging every
morning when he was done with his pre-dawn fishing.
He found a lot of perfectly good stuff including an Epiphone acoustic guitar, a Gibson SG electric,
and my first bass guitar.

If this guy is anything like pops he'll keep coming back to where he found the good stuff.

VT,
Ignore this. You're right in not confronting him while intoxicated. This is some of the worst advice I've seen.
