Re: “What is your license plate telling police?

So I have a question.My bf was driving my car from work and they pulled him over kuz hes bald and then said supposedly they pulled him over because a relative of MINE has a warrant and its connected to my car ? Hmmm.... I began to think and what it boils down to is that CROSS REFERENCING to people who never drove my car ? And is that legal?

@ oydave
It's a matter of corruption as well as incompetence. I will be happy for the City of Atlanta taxpayers to pay the bill.

Re: “Prison farm blues

Dekalb should in no way have anything to do with it, whatever goes there. The Atlanta Chitty Government is slightly less incompetent.

Re: “Prison farm blues

With all of the spending needs in DeKalb, rehabbing the prison farm shares the bottom of the priority list with statues of Crawford Lewis, Vernon Jones and Burrell Ellis.

Re: “Beltline sues Piedmont Heights homeowners in property line dispute

NSC sold the real estate, not the rail line. No approval needed for a real estate only transaction. When NSC decided to abandon (most of) the rail line, they went to the board and were approved. NSC actually retained the portion of the rail line behind Flagler.

Neighbor's points are all moot. Read the filings - it is very clear that the neighbors are actually just squatters.

Re: “Beltline sues Piedmont Heights homeowners in property line dispute

"while the rail corridor sat unused...some of the homeowners at the time expanded their yards and made improvements."

Expanding your backyard on the land is not the same as having an ownership stake on it, anymore than a homeless guy living in a abandoned property gets to own the home.

In other words "you kids get off my lawn"

“...decrepit buildings on the site are so toxic with foul materials such as asbestos...”

“...disturb the deer that live amid the ruins...”
_____________________________________________________________________

Does that mean the deer also have been exposed to the asbestos in the decrepit buildings ?

Re: “Beltline sues Piedmont Heights homeowners in property line dispute

I once got a primo cocksucking just to redraw a few lines on a property map. My boss asked if I love my job, and I nearly spit out my coffee.

This is the reason you pay for title insurance when you buy a house.

It seems like a couple of land surveyors could figure this out in an afternoon.

Re: “Beltline sues Piedmont Heights homeowners in property line dispute

@ Backyard Bullies
You remind me of Pollyanna.Try this on for size.
You move your fence back so part of the Beltline is on your property. Someone gets hurt on the Beltline and they sue both you and the City. The City can claim immunity but you cannot.

Re: “Beltline sues Piedmont Heights homeowners in property line dispute

You know what people, how about you just be nice and not ruin it for everyone? How about you just move your fences and swing sets and flowers back a few yards, and let this wonderful thing that benefits the entire damn city happen?

I guess backyard politics trump innovative public infrastructure in the suburban city.

Thanks Piedmont Heights. Now Beltline money is going to have to be used for litigation. You're screwing up a nice public thing for the sake of a little extra private space in the backyard. Atlanta bullshit.
