i'm going to have to have a twinge of Schadefreude on this one. he wanted to be legal and remain within the law. he was even willing to contradict a Government Overlord for the sake of legalism.
they would have taken his boat anyways, i get that, but when i was in civics class in north carolina, having just came from texas, i was astounded to see all the lemmings in the classroom discussing what was the letter of the law. i think the "big picture" of the bill of rights flew right over their heads in north carolina. that place was worse than texas as far as "legalism" went.
This guy is reaping those rewards of legalism.
