Sorry to bust your bubble but I respect the law. If I was being a douche then they have the right to take me away in handcuffs. At the means of high tide thru the water is federal property not city. To make it easier for you to understand from the high tide to the dunes the city owns. Therefore your trespassing theory is wrong
So on November 3, 2011 I was surfing the northside of Johnny Mercers Peir of Wrightsville Beach, NC when i got the blue lights and the wave in by the fine WBPD. So me and another fellow surfer walked up to the officer and and he brought out his citation book and began to write us a ticket. I told the officer that ive never even had a warning. BTY we were within a 100 ft from the red pole , we will say 400 ft from the peir and there was nobody on the beach or on the peir. The officer told us that we have to go to court to pay this ticket cause there is no other way to keep track of this fine. Now on my court date, i went to court and was saw by the judge. pleaded my case and the judge told me that i will have to talk to the assistant DA. The DA didnt talk to me just called me up to the bench and handed me my judgement: 6 months unsupervised probatation, 6 hrs community service and $380 in fines. with a misdemeaner on my record. needless to say i got it continued. Seriously a record for surfing. Ive saved people that got sucked out in rip currents several times over the many years of surfing. I am just floored that surfing can be a class 3 misdemeaner.
Your 1st mistake was getting out of the water, just don't look to shore, and if the cop sits and waits a couple hrs for you (he probably wouldn't), you give him a polite what? really? you were calling me? worst case you still get the ticket, but at least you got your stoke first.
I just cant wait till mid summer when there are plenty of swimmers right next to the peir ignoring the sign that says no swimming. Ill find the cops and tell him/her to issue a ticket to all of them also. fair is fair and the law is the law
Give them an inch & they'll take a mile. Think back to the cartoon robin hood disney made, that sheriff is a prime example of modern day pOlice. OUR hard earned tax dollars, put to "work". Law Enforcement & our "judicial" system IS organized crime, but who are we to do anything about it? If those jokers spent as much time catching CRIMINALS as they did breaking hard working citizens balls who stay out of REAL trouble over miniscule sht & bullshtting w/ their buddy cops (Ever notice how cops only hangout w/ other cops?..........hmmmm....) maybe things would take a turn for the best.-
FIGHT THAT WEAK BS DUDE, & REMEMBER- POWER IN NUMBERS
sorry if you were offended by this Mr. pOlice (it's because you're weak inside), just b/c u surf doesn't make you like the rest of us, fake tough guy...
