That's why you pick a random area and keep your mouth shut. @sshats arent going to learn unless they get taught a serious lesson that make them rethink their lifestyle decisions and how the interact with the people they are harassing . The cops are useless. I think we all know that. Stupidity should be painful. Vote from the rooftops. Random 30 caliber holes appearing in engine blocks are also effective.I hope you are joking here? While it would be tempting to do so if some asshats were doing this behind my home setting out traps is a GREAT way to end up in court and lose big time. Few if any black robes are going to not throw the book at the home owner who does this.
So was I!
Didn't mean we were dumb or anything, just that the teachers and schools were so fixed in the "Standards" of teaching that there was no way for someone with issues to get ahead, let alone even passing grades, especially when there was ZERO help or understanding of kids who were different!
Graduating from highschool was getting tossed to the wolves, you ether got into the trades, or joined the service, otherwise, you would be burger flipper of the century, or chief tire changin technician at the local Bobs Air Port, Hair Salon, and Tire center! Don't ever judge someone based on grammar, spelling or, writing style! It doesn't mean were not smart, it just means that the schools failed us, they failed to understand, or come up with solutions beyond the "Standard Learning" experience!
BTW, for some of us, English ain't our first language, so you can factor learning English on top of the above into life's challenges!
While I was certainly not gifted my time in school was a HUGE waste of my time and the instructors. My attitude was you can force me to be here till I am 16. After that I am free. I must have caused a few ulcersHowever, if you see me misspelling today, it's because my mind is addled, I can't see the screen well, or I intended to "speak" colorfully. Was always the spelling bee champ. Now I struggle to understand some people's writings/points if the spelling gets too bad. I think it's prob best not to get too far out of the lanes. Not gonna bee the speelin Natsi tho, not me. That said, really bad spelling does trigger my OCD... my cross to bear.
I just laugh it off and often will "fix it".
Same when I often post from my phone which I still have not come even close to mastering. It makes some great ones some times.
Wrong. Oregon just doesn't use the word "brandishing" any more.There is no crime of brandishing in the State of Oregon
Can you cite the case and which Circuit Court it happened in?Wrong. Oregon just doesn't use the word "brandishing" any more.
I was on a jury in Oregon in the 1990s in which the guy was charged with a variety of things, one of which was brandishing. We the jury found defendant guilty of brandishing. Judge explained to jury what brandishing was when he instructed us.
Apparently Oregon laws have been revised or rewritten since. Brandishing is still illegal. But they dont use the word "brandishing." In the 2020 version of Oregon laws, see ORS.190, Pointing a Firearm at Another. Read it. Its identical to what used to be called brandishing and still is in many states. If found guilty the penalty is $10 to $500 and/or 10 days to 6 months in the county jail.

Trial was in Corvallis, in Benton County, which is the 21st judicial district of Oregon. I don't remember and would have no records of case number. I think it was 1990s, but might have been early 2000s. My best guess would be 1996 - 1999. The defendant was charged with a number of things, including attempted murder. He had, in fact, shot someone in the leg. People getting shot in Benton County isnt very common. so that might be the easiest way to find case. I think crime itself was in Philomath area. Newspaper covering that area is Corvallis Gazette-Times.Can you cite the case and which Circuit Court it happened in?

Trial outcome was weird because jury was not given a list of options that included the worst the defendant had done. We/jury decided defendant had fired gun toward one guy to scare him, but had accidentally hit someone else. It was clear that nobody including defendant had known anyone was injured until several minutes after shooting. (Gun was a .22 handgun. Bullet was round nose. It looked pristine, so had gone through without hitting any bone.) Guy who had been shot didn't show any signs of having been shot and didn't tell anyone until several minutes later. Victim might not have realized he had been hit immediately. Witnesses said defendant was very upset when he found out he'd shot this other guy. Jury was given many options/counts to decide on, including attempted murder and assault of various degrees toward the injured guy. Shooting the injured guy by accident wasn't a choice. Jury was able to give a guilty verdict only on the brandishing. Judge was seriously unhappy. We the jury weren't very happy either. We would have been perfectly willing to find defendant guilty of careless use of a firearm, illegal discharge of a firearm, and injuring the victim with a firearm in addition to the brandishing. But those weren't options.
