The officer that was talking seemed very rude and belligerent. He should be fired for using profanity towards his employer.

That peace officer acted like

That peace officer acted like a heartless communist thug. He gives all the good cops a bad name and reputation.

Just goes to show how government employees are beyond bored and have nothing else better to do than harass the American people.

When Ron Paul said he wanted to eliminate 5 government agencies, and get rid of the income tax too...he meant it.

We don't need this government crap anymore. At least half of WDC needs a pink slip in the mail...

"You're fired. Goodbye. Adios. Good riddance."

Go get a real job and actually produce something other than tyranny...jerks.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Typical

9 out of 10 cops I've encountered act like this.

"Go get a real job and actually produce something other than,

tyranny... jerks." Took the words right out of my mouth!

Well

Ron Paul has something to say about property rights and other peoples negligence effecting your property and property values...i suggest you ALL go listen to what he has to say here and stop with your immature nonsense. If somebody is breeding bug and rodent infestations and it moves to your property you MOST CERTAINLY have the right to be pissed off about it. I've seen Ron's yard in person and it isn't no Rats nest and his grass isn't five foot hi neither and you can bet your mental midget minds that if one of his neighbors were breeding disease next door to him he wouldn't be pleased about it....

Civil Suit

I must say I generally don't concur with your line of thinking. But rather than down vote your posts further, I thought I'd pipe up and suggest that if your neighbor has done you / your property harm, the route is to file civil suit, and have it adjudicated there. The idea of involving the police (except to accompany officials as 'peace keepers' while the officials enforce a court order) is not appropriate.

Anyone literally has the

Anyone literally has the right to be pissed off about anything they want. The KKK has a right to be pissed that minorities exist. It doesn't mean they can go kill them or use government to force them to vacate the country.

Ron Paul is a proponent of ABSOLUTE property rights. All I've ever heard him say regarding harming property is pollution. Rats and weeds are nature, life, they aren't man-made pollution. If that neighbor wasn't there you would still have those things.

Are you one of these people who think the government should go around telling people they can't have any standing water on their property because of mosquitoes?

Call Ron up and ask him how his pet Rats, Yard Fungus's and Chinch bugs are doing dumbass...lol

Grow up and ignore the mess. Let people live. People like you think you have some inherent right, or even somehow earned it because you have money, to be around people of your caste and higher and no one lower.

NO

I'm all grown up boy. I will not ignore someone who has negative effects on my property and my property value. Isn't going to happen and the deep dark secret here is your man Ron wouldn't neither but you will never admit that because you think you have some heightened enlightenment on what property rights are (probably because you don't own any) and you clearly do not. Your living in La La land...boy. This isn't Woodstock utopia here...

My what is living in la la land?

You have yet to prove how his property actually affects yours. Weeds and rats are part of nature. You're going to have them regardless of how he maintains his property. If you're so anal about such things, your house should be so awesome that no rats can even get in, and your lawn should be so perfect anyway from using all kinds of herbicides. Slobs aren't the source of rats and weeds.

Ive lived here for 15 years

Ive lived here for 15 years and never had any Rat problems or yard problems until Mr. Trash moved in. Every spring you can actually see the weed line coming from his yard in to mine and i have to go buy poison to get rid of the crap several times during spring or get out there everyday and pull the crap up by hand or it will kill my grass. Then when it gets hot the chinch bugs kill his whole damn yard (except for the weeds of course)and you can watch them come out of his yard and spread to everybody else s yard around him, does he give a damn? NO!. You are beating a dead horse here. Obviously you do not own a home or just don't know wtf you are talking about OR just couldn't care less that one persons actions are effecting everybody around him in a negative way, possibly because your just like him and are maybe offended. Bottom line is i don't have to prove a damn thing to you. I've explained what is going on to the point any moron on earth could understand it and you the internet Intellectual IDIOT want to keep arguing for the sake of argument. One day when you spend a couple hundred thousand dollars on a house in a nice neighborhood and then a piece of human chit moves in next door because he hit the lottery or something THEN maybe you will understand that when a human trash can moves in next door and craps the place up it devalues your property, until then please feel free to STFU about it already...case CLOSED!

Oh, so surely he brought the

Oh, so surely he brought the rats with him. That's laughable.

What difference does it make if I own a home? I would still respect how others want their properties to look.

How is your property devalued his problem again? It's not his problem that they value property by what is surrounding it. Why does it matter for you? It should keep your taxes lower.

Put up a fence if you don't like it. Weeds, rats, termites, and other delusions are not pollution. But you spraying Roundup on his land is.

You don't have to prove to me how these things pollute your land, but you definitely would in court.

You're only letting his actions affect you by not minding your own business.

Wanting to protect ones property rights is not authoritarian. You must all live in hoovervilles and drive oil leaking water polluting old beaters or something ...lol

What property rights are

What property rights are those? Why does he have none in your eyes? You're the one being authoritarian by pushing your standards on him. Do you even have a well? You'd have to prove that those few drops of oil made it into your ground water.

He has property rights just like me

The only difference is he lets his problems effect others around him in a negative way. You see, the only effect my property and i myself have had on his property are positive effects where as he has given me constant bug, fungus and weed infestations . The back of his house also has a termite infestation which because of him i had to spend $1000 to have my home treated so they don't swarm over to my house and start eating it up and i have had to keep my attic and yard loaded with Rat poison and i have a dog which i now have to worry about that as well.
To top it off it would be hard to sell my house with this Rat living next door because nobody wants to buy a home in a nice neighborhood and live next to a Rats nest with a old beater truck sitting outside leaking oil all over the place and missing a front bumper and drivers side window....all negative effects from one lowly homeowner that shouldn't be there to begin with. He is clearly living 'beyond his means'...something else Ron doesn't like and to be clear this isn't a 'few' drops of oil, It leaks massive amounts of oil and that all flows down to the lakes and creeks and pollutes the water where those precious fish live i like to catch in the springtime. I don't like eating quacker state 10/30...

Maybe your high standards of

Maybe your high standards of how you maintain your property offend him. Some people don't like neatness and minimalism. Just because it's positive for you doesn't mean other people have to be forced to accept them as positive.

Termites are his fault now? They don't build nests in trees and spread around to find a nice meals like houses?

I'd be concerned about your dog eating the Roundup you're spraying everywhere. Maybe you should work on making sure your house can't be infested by rats. Wouldn't want to be a hypocrite.

So now he has to have a nice car that meets your standards? Being poor means you have no right to own property?

How does his few drops of oil pollute the fish you catch? Do you have a stream running through your yard? How does it affect your drinking water? You didn't even answer me in the other comment asking you if you even have a well. You do realize that just having a street is going to leach petroleum into the ground when it rains, on a much larger scale than a truck leaking some oil.

You're doing plenty fine polluting other property yourself, going around spraying Roundup. You even mentioned that you spray it on his property. I guess if you have wells there, glyphosphate is something that magically doesn't seep into a well. If I was him I would have shot you for doing such a thing.

Property rights.

If you can prove that his leaking oil does in fact flow onto your property, there ya go.

Otherwise, there ya go again.

I can prove many things but

I can prove many things but it wont do any good. You guys are living breathing proof of that! Common sense tells you that all that oil gets in the drainage system and goes to the lakes and rivers and pollutes them and last i checked the taxpayers own that as well. Bottom line here is you guys are more obsessed at defending a Rat than you are defending someones property rights. That is very telling right there. I've done nothing but help the guy out physically and financially and i get down voted while this scumbag trash devalues my property in every way a neighbor can and he gets protection. Don't you just LOVE the progressive system we have...lol.. The Rat will leave one way or another, we will see to it...

"I've done nothing but help the guy out physically and financially"

I know that your view/heart is in the right place, and that all you want is to resolve a grievance. In my opinion, your statement sounds much like the current government and its demands while forfeiting rights of an individual for the betterment of you and/or a community [remember hillary, 'it takes a village'].

While I do not know the specifics first hand, as one poster eluded, maybe the neighbor is going through personal dilemma. Maybe he does not see his living environment as a problem. Or, maybe that is his way of trying to get you to move away, and once you do he will clean up his act.

To live Liberty, and promote it, you must be tolerant while looking for solutions that retain the Liberties of both you and another. Nothing is easy in this world, thus the struggle.

When I initially purchased my land, a neighbor attempted to lay stake to 50' of my property. He installed barbed-wire and other fencing, which I repeatedly took down, and even threw metal objects and trash onto my property. Even with my deed that I showed him, the burden was mine to have my own property resurveyed - on my own dime - and it was not cheap. I NEVER called the cops, I never did anything retaliatory and I never provoked. After a lengthy amount of time he eventually gave up, and all is well.

You insist on repeatedly calling him 'Rat'. Eventually, that becomes ingrained. I am not overly religious, but there is an old saying: Let go, and let God. Do not throw your money at him anymore as that incites welfare, so maybe just let go and Let God for a while and see what happens :-)

In Liberty,

Now THIS is a reply i can

Now THIS is a reply i can respect....BUT, he isn't going through anything , He has been this way sense the day he moved in and its doing nothing but getting worse. I've done all i can here. Somebody mentioned a civil suit. That wont get anything but a judgment against the guy. The city has been on his ass for years and it does no good. Why cant you guys understand that there is such thing as trash in this world ? The guy doesn't give a flying crap about his neighbors, that is fairly obvious so why should i treat him like anything other than what he is ?
Like i said, he is just a filthy nasty person. Sorry if i have offended anybody in here but its the truth and unless you have dealt with something like this you don't know what it is like. We have been going through this for seven long years with this turd, he just doesn't give shit about anything! He needs to go...Hope you guys understand but i wont hold my breath here...

I rent a room in a house from

I rent a room in a house from a friend's mom. She has no drive to do anything since being laid off years ago. Just sits and watches TV 24/7. She went to Poland for a month so her son just let everything go since there's no one there to nag him. Even so, she leaves the property in a state of disrepair. It's her right to do that, and people don't have the right to not have to see it. We got something in the mail about a fenced-in area having grass too high, and a car (her son's) in the driveway being out of inspection. They've been through all kinds of vehicular stuff like this before. They left a van sit there for a while that was totally smashed. Another car that was undergoing an engine swap sat outside for years. If I had property I would make it look the same, and on purpose. It looks like valuable and less likely to get robbed. I also personally don't like anything to ever be neat looking. I'd ideally like some old ass stone house surrounded by woods and having ivy grow all over it.

Moral of the story...you do not own your property, even if you have the deed.

Another moral...a message to the public: stop hiding your faces like this lady and so many others do. If that crap happened to be I would be on camera flipping out like Alex Jones does. Violations of rights is not something to be calm and collected about. That's what the system wants. They'd shit their pants if we could still storm their houses lynch mob style with pitchforks and torches.
