Sarasota County Sheriff’s deputies say 47-year-old Gary Mitchell planted several bushes along the front sidewalk of the home he’s renting, located at 5293 Old Ashwood Drive, in Sarasota. The bushes run along the sidewalk and along portions of the county right of way, just east of his property line, according to the sheriff’s office.
Monday, one of his neighbors, Teal Fowler, noticed that there were several razor blades sticking to the branches of his bushes. Fowler took pictures and talked to Mitchell about it. She called the sheriff’s office she says because she was afraid someone would get cut. “There’s children. There’s pets. There’s quite a few people who access the sidewalk.”
You see? This is just a case of taking it in your own hands. And you know what? Screw all these passer by people who think they can just go ahead and touch Gary’s bushes. If it weren’t illegal I’d definitely do the same thing.
Even his neighbor Fowler admitted that Mitchell is a “wonderful” neighbor. Yes, I hope I can have wonderful neighbors like Gary. Hopefully I’ll get some sort of a nice poison in my mailbox.
Maybe my new neighbor can cover his lawn in dog shit so that I’m not allowed to walk on it. Neighbors rule.
