seriously a ticket?

45 posts in this topic

So me and two friends were out catching bullheads at one of our best little ponds in west st Paul. We got done fishing at about 10:30 and walked back to the truck and were talking for a minute and a sheriff pulls into the lot along with 3 west st. Paul cops and gives us a ticket for being in the park after 10:00. anyone ever gotten one of these, was wondering how much it is cause she said she didn't know and we would be mailed something in about 2-3 weeks. I think that is the last time my buddy from lindstrom is going to come hang out with us while we are fishing.

If any of them bullheads would have died while she was writing us are tickets i think i would have to go to court and ask for restitution in the amount of the fine it is for being in a park after 10. I could see if we were partying or starting trouble but come on FISHING. She needs to get a life.

Yeah man I posted about this on your facebook but down here we can get a permit to park after hours. I was bugged before I got that though and the cops were really nice after they realized my girlfriend and I were just Catfishing. We still had to leave but there were like 3 cars with their lights on and everything...

You're welcome. It took several tickets, phone calls, complaining, sweet talking and a couple of years to get those permits.

I have always made it a practice to be out of the park at the closing time as one can and will get tagged for after hours.

It would be nice if they would be open later but a few have ruined it for all the others.

Thats always the story, a select few can't behave and then the stricter rules are put in place.

It's amazing that this is what the cops spend their time doing. How about solving some of the cities real problems once and a while?

Hold on now they are out there doing there job! You may not like what they are doing, but its what they are there to do. If she wasn't somewhere else then at that moment she was assigned to anything, and she is free to patrol. Like Tom said rules are rules and they are they for some reason or another like that or not thats how it is. I do agree that this is a dumb law, but thats what it is, these guys knew it and took that risk. Its just a safer version of Russian roulette. One pull your safe and the next BAM!!

Yup, like Tom said, a select few probably ruined it for others. Years ago it might have been the perfect place for drug deals or partys. We don't know. That would also probably explain the multiple units involved. Too bad some people have to ruin it for everyone elso who wants to use the park for what it was made for.

yes they were doing there job and i agree with that but to clarify this a little, we had no idea the park closes at ten we were there two nights earlier with other people till about 11:00pm. There are no signs posted in the parking lot in the entrance to the parking lot on the path to the pier or on the Pier itself. yes I know she was doing her job but holy [PoorWordUsage] $120. that's alot to me especially since i have been out of work for about the last 6 months and i wont be going back to work till the end of this month. I thought it would $30 maybe $50 dollars tops. Oh well lesson learned i guess.

    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all. 
    • I did cut off the radish tops and they do taste like radish but I am not going to get in the business of growing them..
    • Nice overreaction. Did you have too much caffeine today?   Nobody said or implied that the world would be better off without the united States.    What I did say was the world would be better off if we were not destabilizing governments and taking out the leaders that kept these radicals in check.    Where do you think all the refugees that are heading to Europe and here are coming from? They are coming largely from areas where we deposed, removed or destabilized the government in their home country. Do you think this is some kind of coincidence?   
    • The Shah was there for a long time before the revolution, but yes we had a role in his getting the job.   I don't recall anyone saying that we had a role in the disintegration of Lebanon.   I think that was the peaceful Muslims trying to take the whole place, with input from outside forces.  Syria maybe? 
    • My granny would fricassee them.  Cut-up, season, braise in stock, remove, then add flour and butter to thicken the stock, season to taste, and return the pieces for a few minutes.  If we had a few quail or dove she would add them in as well.  HERE is a really good looking rabbit fricassee with mushrooms, wine and herbs served over pasta.  Would like to try this with chicken drumsticks or wings.
    •   Ding, ding ding, ding! We have a winner. I sensed this was were this thread was heading   It's all America's fault and the world would be a much more peaceful place if America never existed. Why, these people would be the salt of the Earth if it wasn't for the mean and bad USA and throw in Israel in that   "America's Chickenzzz....are coming to home to roost!"   The common denominator is Radicalized Islam. You may not like hearing that but that is the common denominator including in other parts of the world were Radical Muslims cannot seem to get along with their own neighbors including others in their religion that aren't radical enough that have zilch, zero, zip, nada to do with the USA.   No other religion or belief system, I don't care if it's Christianity, Scientology, Paganism, Agnostics, Atheists,ect, has the issues with violence in modern times as Islam does. Spin it anyway you want but the facts cannot be denied.   This massive denial by some of what's sadly and painfully obvious is mind boggling. I get the desire to seem enlightened and non judgemental but that doesn't mean one should deny reality and blame  Fox or Briebart
