I live in an hoa where in a number of HOA board meetings the board has asked residents to not let their dog loose, and also when walking dogs on leashes, to pick up and take care of any poops their dogs drop on resident’s property or on common grounds.
Yesterday, after repeated complaints, one of our residents felt the need to call the Port Orange animal control department and make a complaint.
I am not sure what the details are, but I guess that when her neighbor lets the dog out, unattended, the dog poops on the complainant’s property.
Nobody needs this shit. Cut it out! I carry publix plastic bags in my back pocket, and no matter where I might go with my dog, I am prepared to scoop up my dog’s poops. I find it very easy.
Come on people. After all the talk of us having good neighbors in our community I think it is time for a few of us to fit in and pick up your dog’s poops and do not let them out of your house unattended, unless you have a fence in yard.
I have suggested to the resident who is trying to deal with this problem that she takes pictures of perhaps the dog poops, and or pictures of the dog running loose. Then perhaps if some meat head needs to be embarrassed, I and my lawyer can arrange that.

comment by HANK: regarding “saturation” police work.
In the 70’s (no not 18 seventies) I was the chief executive officer of the LI state parkway police, (160 miles of parkways in nassau and suffolk county, NY.)
We received a big federal grant to institute saturation traffic enforcement in the two counties. The enforcement squad had 12 men , 6 in each county, and the Lt. in charge determined location, enforcement technique , and time of day or night. and was fond of saturation radar work with one sgt and 5 patrolman. This is the way it worked.
A single unmarked radar car parked on the grass shoulder, and when a speeder went by the radar, 5 patrolman were waiting to wave you over and get on a line to receive a traffic summons. It was like a wall of a traffic enforcement mine field, in which no speeder got by. Every 5 patrolman had unmarked police cars supplied by the federal government to go after a speeder who did not stop as directed.
All speeders got caught, joined the line to get the traffic summons issued. Some of those unfortunate speeders would be late for work.
In addition, with two rows of vehicles parked in a line on the grass shoulder waiting to receive their traffic summonses, all traffic was slowed as on lookers watched . We had a sign indicating radar speeding stop point, but still those motorists who receiving a sigh of relief that they had not been stopped wanted to watch the spectacle.
I started receiving phone calls in my office from the public’s outcry about this new traffic enforcement technique. But the endeavor was effective. As determined by DOT speed traffic counters, the average speed monitored for the traffic public went down to about 5 mph over the speed limit. And my reports showed that the number of traffic accidents were declining.
The Lt. told me that he was monitoring average speed in particular sections of the parkway and his radar squads did not change location until the average speed was monitored closer to the speed limit. On the second day of enforcement in the same location on the Meadowbrook Parkway, a repeat offender from the day before got stopped. He got out of his car, started kicking his car, tried to break the car windows with his fists, and was opening up his trunk (to get a lug wrench?) when the police officers’ stopped him from further damaging his car.
I don’t think the TV advertisements show a car racing at a high speed, or am I wrong? I see beautiful girls driving around on deserted streets that look like city streets at 3am (what is that all about?) and then I see cars splashing through mud, or parked on an unacessasble tip of a mountain. But cars racing to work in order to pay off those expensive vehicle, I do not see in TV advertisements. Everything will slow down and be better when self driving cars take over the road.
Sooner or later, if you were a speeder on the major LI state parkways you would be caught. The cat and mouse game no longer became a level playing field.
— the following referenced article got me remembering our saturation police work on the LI parkways:

….you broke a rule and the elders believed that you could no longer be apart of the religion, you would become “unbaptized” where you were not allowed back. None of the friends that you made could contact or see you, and here is where it gets cult-y, your family who were still apart of the religion, could no longer talk or see you either. IF THATS NOT CRAZY, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS. Those ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses would be excommunicated from their loved ones. “We tear families apart if you believe anything other than what we teach!” — What I think their motto should be….
….higher education was looked down upon in the religion, going through the process of college applications felt pointless. My mom and everyone in the congregation encouraged me not to go, but I wanted to, so badly. Going to college for JWs was frowned upon not only because it was full of worldy people, but also because of their belief that there was no point in getting a higher education when the world was going to end soon anyways!…
