    tresspass2.JPG WOW...I wonder if the clown defending the TRESSPASSERS would want the lowlifes sitting on THEIR front lawns???? And, as a condo owner, she DOES own a legal interest in the common area. Kudos to her, for sticking up for her property rights. I own an industrial condo in Manchester, and almost ALL of the other owners will approach anyone they don't recognize hanging out in the parking lot. Oh, and almost ALL of them carry!

    I know the democrats and the media perpetuate keeping us locked into smaller controllable groups.

    I read the OP's post describing the situation and the thing I felt was the most irrelevant to the story is the fact that the guy was black and the woman was white.

    In fact if the issue is trespassing and smoking weed it doesn't even really matter that it was a guy and a girl.

    Using the phrase 'a couple of people' would get the point across equally well.

    Carrying a firearm or any other weapon with the intent of confronting someone is a big mistake. In fact that is not why we carry at all.

    Might be better to address any potential trespassing events with your association. Let them handle it.

    Attend the meetings and explain the event and the concern. If more of the residents are aware of a potential situation then as a group you can get your association to act.

    Look for a peaceful solution until there is no other alternative.

    But the OP seems to be creating most of the encounters and should probably reconsider that strategy.

    When I had the lake house in NH I had my own boat ramp. If people were polite enough to ask to use it I would let them. If not, I would chase them out. I had the "Private Property" signs. I figured that 12k a year in taxes should buy me some privacy. Jack.

    Livin live, in the 505
    There is a swimming pool right outside my apartment, and we sometimes get people showing up to use it that don't live here.

    Usually, it is one or two Moms, and some kids. And it usually in the middle of the day, when no one is using the pool anyway.

    Most of the folks in my building are senior citizens, and we don't really use the pool. But we do pay for it by sharing the water bill and the electric bill.

    I enjoy watching kids enjoy the pool, and as long as they respect the property and don't get noisy or leave a mess, I am happy to contribute to the kids having
    a chance to cool off in this heat. After all, people also pay taxes for public pools all over town, what is the difference?

    What does bother me are the old biddies that constantly bitch about it. You know, the ones who walk there dog out front and don't clean up after them, because
    they think it is the Property Management's responsibility.

    We also have a large pond on the property, filled with ducks, fish and snapping turtles. I don't mind people using it to have a picnic.....the more people around
    the better the chance that nefarious folks stay away.

    Some things are just not worth getting upset about. Except dog shit.....dog shit really pisses me off!

    Question.....what does the color of their skin have to do with this? Black guy and his white girlfriend?!?!? I for one dont see what their melatonin levels have to do with this at all. Trespassers are trespassers right?

    That said......are there no trespassing signs on the property? If not....get with the condo assn to get some put up.

    As far as the pot.....do you really care what a grown man puts into his body? If it's in mass it's not an crime. Maybe it is a fine if its smoked in public.....but really? I've never once smoked weed. Dont care to. I have a teenage boy and when I am with him and see pot smokers in public.....I tell him that they are wasting their money and time with that shit......but that in america.....as a libertarian.....they have every right to poison their own bodies and smoke shit that lowers their ability to give a shit.

    In Mass, for there to be a criminal trespass, there has to be posted signage or direct warnings forbidding entry. Someone isn't a trespasser unless they ignore a sign, are barred from entry, or are told to go away. Until that point, there's no trespass.

    Sadly respecting private property went right out the window along with respecting another person's opinion soon followed by respecting other human beings...

    would not surprise me one bit if the condos you live in and the "property" over the fence are all owned by the same "people"

    My Dad would have a solution to most problems.
    1. always have some occupying the bench
    2. Donate a bench to the property next door
    3. Pot is no legal in Ma so now its up to any usage laws that may be in use for "when" can you smoke weed.
    4. I know my buddy and all his smoking friends at his condo complex got all but hurt when a "no smoking" ban went into effect anywhere on the property out side your personal dwelling.

    stop feeding the swans

    Don't feed the swans - It's bad for them.
    And let me guess, the swans are white - right...?

    Shouldn't feed wildlife......yes they are put in small ponds by people......but feeding them is not the best thing for them.

    My town has a couple that they put in a local city owned pond....along with "dont feed the swans" signs.

    It's called a fence with a locked gate or a big beautiful wall. No keys no entry.

    The wife and I have a large parcel. Her attitude is similar to the OP’s. I would rather have a conversation with them and get their name and gauge their intent in trespassing. If it’s a neighborhood kid walking or cutting through on a dirt bike I just ask them to pass courteously.
    I think being decent and having “allies” in the long run works better that just yelling at everyone to get off your lawn. You can’t be there every minute, and eventually someone you piss off will f*** up your stuff when you’re not home.
    I’ll walk up to the power line bordering my property and the kids on dirt bikes and quads will ride over and say hi instead of scattering like roaches.
