Default Good Samaritans Face Fine After Rescuing Deer From Icy Water

Gotta luv the gubment.


http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2010/1...rom-icy-water/



Strangers banded together to pull a deer out of the freezing water of the Patapsco River on Thursday night.
“We seen the deer going under,” said Khalil Abusakran. “It couldn’t maintain. It was starting to freeze, and it was really getting bad.”
Abusakran brought a raft, and Jim Hart joined him.
“We had oars and shovels to break the ice, for the deer to get out,” Abusakran said.
But in the excited aftermath of the rescue, a natural resources police officer on the scene wrote both men a ticket.
“And he didn’t say anything,” Jim Hart said. “We went in and out of the water numerous times. He didn’t stop us at all.”
They say they were ticketed for not wearing life vests, although both are over the age for mandatory use of flotation devices.
“No, we didn’t have vests on, but we’re not 16 years old,” Abusakran said. “There were personal floating devices on the boat.”
The ticket itself doesn’t check off any specific violation, just a $90 fine.
They’ll fight it in court, as they fought for the deer.
The two men ticketed say they will fight the citations at the court hearing in Annapolis set for Feb. 18.


Hopefully this natural resources "police officer" if fired immediately!

I'm gonna guess there were no pfds in the small inflatable boat. I know he said there were. What if they were saving a human life? Still a ticket? I know this area well. It's basically a state park running past the ghetto. I'm sure the fish cops are used to treating people harsh. I think it's going to start a shit-storm. Court date Feb 18th in Annapolis.

They are lucky they did not get a ticket for "fishing for deer out of season".

Reminds me of a story a few years ago a lady shot an alligator trying to come thru a doogie door and got a ticket for hunting without a license/permit.;?

Default Common Sense

In this age of misinformation who really knows what happened, but it sounds like "doing the right thing" has become subject to interpretation. It truly is a world gone mad.

Perhaps the locals can pack the courtroom when this comes to trial (if ever). I'd venture a guess that this will be dismissed before that happens, though.

Fox News is taking this one up this morning. I would say chances are this is one fine they would've been better off leaving on the table.

Back in the day the Game Warden was your friend, and was there to arrest the bad guys and help the good guys....
Today they are called Environmental Control Officers, aka, professional pricks, out to enforce thousands of ridiculous laws aimed primarily at increasing revenues, but also aimed at slowly forcing people to give up all hunting, fishing and boating activities that they 'feel' 'might impact the environment........
