We Got Us A Couple Of Middle Aged Wise County Outlaws!


Hang on guys, I'm coming to help! There has to be something in the Bill of Rights to protect you from being chased off government land by a government employee while you are simply watching water (which has fallen from Heaven, mind you!) being released because of a governmental decision.

But I'll give the deputy credit for just running you off.  This silly concept of "you break the law and you will be arrested and prosecuted" without any consideration of for the facts, circumstances, common sense, and common decency is lost on many people theses days.  Or maybe that's just my old Wise County roots talking.

There are two homes for sale on that private road! We were just looking at the homes for an investment!

Idiots have thrown kayaks into these goofy waters and have otherwise killed themselves. Police officers act the way they do because of all the idiots and criminals. Every time I fly, I am treated like a terrorist. Because of a few terrorists. So, standing by a dam, you get treated like the few idiots that kill themselves. Tough. Go be a cop and see how easy it is.

Cops can be idiots as well. Especially hot shit cops!

From the angle of this photo it looks like they crossed the fence into the prohibited area! I am not sure of the location but I went driving Friday to see if I could see the spillway and my view was blocked by the fence and vegetation.

Couldn't resist the impulse to editorialize? What indication have you that the WCD's default mode would've been to "arrest and prosecute...without... consideration..."?

Too bad the middle aged guys didn't fall in. That would have been exciting to watch.

Non-Safety first.

Thanks BG! The Wife and I had quite the chuckle over that.

A few comments.

It is a spillway. Because everyone calls it that.
We weren't over the fence. You can hold a cell phone over the fence if you're tall enough.
It is a private road. As noted by the small PR Street sign at the entrance. Next to the two "FOR SALE" signs with arrows directing people to drive in a take a look. If you want to keep people from gawking during the biggest floods in 25 years, try a big "No Trespassing Sign", a gate, or hire out the deputy as a guard.

PS-8:02pm... its simple. Just drive up, roll down your window, and tell us to move along.

Probably comes off better than flipping on your lights from a hundred yards away, blaring the siren at you, and driving up frantically gesturing with your hands at a middle aged couple with cell phones taking pictures of the spillway.
