Over the last week there has been a celebratory mood taking place with amazing weather adding to this time of year. However, not everyone was happy. I live on Fairbanks Street and recently someone decided to gather their dog’s waste and throw it on a young man’s truck. I am not sure why someone would do this, but from what I understand, this is not the first time.
I really enjoy the area and people who live here. It seems that at any given time, people are walking with and without their dogs and kids are playing. Everyone I’ve met have been really great people. I am sure most areas are similar. But we have a problem. One of our residents takes it upon himself to gather his dog’s feces to throw on vehicles. If this fellow had a problem, why not try to resolve it with conversation?
When the young man told me about this, I suggested he contact the police and file a complaint as this apparently has been done before. I was informed the police weren’t interested.
Here is the problem: If the local detachment chooses not to intervene with these “minor” complaints, they have a tendency to escalate.
For the person who chose to play with dog feces and throw it: Stop.
Eventually you will get caught. In an age with phones with cameras, video surveillance and social media, do you really want to get caught and embarrass yourself, your family and friends?
