You hit the nail on the head. The Judges that hear these cases are to blame. There are signs everywhere that say no tresspassing, no swimming, no jumping due to violation of law and the village still gets sued by the parents costing them a truckload of money to defend. These cases should be thrown out of court. Unfortunately we live in a society where a posted sign means nothing.
you are right posted signs are not worth he paper that are printed on OR ppl tear them down

I am curious: I no longer live in New York State, but I grew up locally and swam in Canajoharie Creek, jumping from the Falls and enjoying Wintergreen Park back in the 70s and early 80s. I loved that place. Of course, that was before Amsterdam was overrun with spooks and wetbacks collecting free government money, cell phones and cars, and driving wherever the heck they wanted to ruin the planet for decent honest taxpaying citizens. Now I read that the Amsterdamned have taken over in Wintergreen Park, leaving messy diapers, crack pipes, dog doo and everything else imaginable, as well as managing to kill themselves on the Falls once in a while (boo hoo). So the Canajoharie Town Council has placed "No Trespassing" signs in Spanglish and people are ignoring them. Exactly when did it become illegal to swim in the creek, by the way? That makes me sad because as I said I loved that place and have many fond memories of swimming there and jumping from the Falls. Of course, on the other hand they need to do something to keep the Amsterscum out of there; simply making it illegal to swim isn't going to do it, however. Can anyone tell me when it became verboten to swim in the creek?
Actually, it's the Canajoharie VILLAGE council... It's been illegal to swim there for years, and in the last few it has been strictly enforced. Gotta remember, that 1 cop works at a time there, so I imagine it's kinda tough to be arresting people there while something is happening downtown.
All sorts of scum go there... people sit at the picnic table waiting for and watching when people come in the park. People get out of their cars and head into the no trespass area and then the scum that were waiting and watching try to take things from their car. I've seen that personally.

Thanks for the correction, Booger. The municipal designation is probably not that important, as I now live in another state in a TOWN of 3700 people covering over SIXTEEN square miles. New York would probably leave that as an unincorporated village, but who knows? We haven't been overrun by gibberish-speaking Amsterscum ... YET. Of course, if the current Presumptive Dictator occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has his way with the border, that may soon come to pass. Getting back to my original question, however, your response that "it's been illegal to swim there for years" lacks the kind of chronological precision I was seeking. As I recall, it wasn't illegal to enter the park and swim in the creek back in the 70s and early 80s. Can you provide an exact time period when the law (or "ordinance" -- since it's a VILLAGE) sanctioning swimming was passed?

All "New Laws" are approved by the Senate... even for villages.. so go jump off the falls and bump your head.... No one gives a sh*t about what you think
