Catch Me if You Can

On the drive home today, I saw some lady throw a bottle and several wrappers out of her car window. She didn’t even care! Why should she?

Misdemeanor

Technically, littering is illegal — it carries a fine and possible jail time — but who is going to catch her? I’m sure as heck not going to try to make a citizen’s arrest. Not with people so on edge these days. She might shoot me on the spot!

Unless there’s a cop right next to you when you litter, there’s no way to nail these deadbeats. And even deadbeats are smart enough not to do something right in front of a cop!

Even if a cop does see it, they probably won’t do anything about it. It’s tough to prove, first of all, and who’s to say you won’t pull a weapon? People today are crazy! These days, if an officer actually makes it home to his family, it’s a feat.

Meanwhile, the roads are strewn with litter. This “law” is a joke.
