So here's a story - last week.
A longstanding (30 year) local business is messy. Its a rental/repair biz - so there is lots of junk, parts, hulks from which parts can be scavenged. New City Manager decides its not up to his white anglo saxon upper middle class standard. They start hassling the local biz.
Initially, local biz is willing to comply. Hires a maintenance company to mow the grass. Cleans up a lot of the mess. Upgrades electrical service.
Ends up in a trial. 3 hours, local court. Of course, I cheat like hell.
Unanimous verdict in our favor.
How long do you think it will take for local constabulary to bring new charges?
