Illegal Dumping 101

Illegal dumping is an ever-increasing issue in the Historic Northeast community and this “clean-up-after-yourself” Newsdog has fully had enough.

Yesterday, after a leisurely motor-sickle ride through the country, we rode up into our alley and was met with a charming individual illegally dumping construction material on the public right-of-way.

Clearly, he and his less-than-stellar “assistant” had been caught red-handed immediately after pushing a load of crap off the top of his SUV, into the gated area of our back-alley neighbor.

After a heated exchange and some strategically taken pictures, the two criminals drove away with the gate of the SUV still open, ready to spill more debris onto the street as they escaped.

Well, the joke is on them because this will be a test case for the prosecutorial integrity of the city in illegal dumping cases where suspects can be identified and the catching party is willing to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

These suspects had no way of knowing the Dog sat on the city’s Waste Minimization Committee back in the day and actually helped craft the municipal Prima Facie evidence ordinance that sadly isn’t used much anymore.

To that end, watch the pages of the Northeast News for details of this case as it progresses through the court process.

Illegal dumping by predators such as this will not be tolerated by this Newsdog and we’re ready to take it to the limit as far as prosecution is concerned.

Stay tuned!
