Weed abatement is basically taking care of your property for fire control purposes. Some people will do it themselves, and other... Don't so the fire department takes care of it, and then bills the land owner. This guy clearly wasn't happy with the bill he received. Maybe he should have done it himself rather than let someone do it for him.

This is for safety purposes so if there is a fire your neighbor's weed ridden property doesn't cause everyone's place to burn.

Sure people own their property. War has been declared on the American people. We are living in a police state. We are no longer a Republic, we are a socialist country with government dictators incestually operating what once was the people's country.

It's not like this guy didn't know about the fees. He receives a letter every year telling him if his property isn't cleaned up the city will do it and charge him.(its his choice) I know because I have received a letter before but, I did the work myself. I'm not gonna pay someone else a boat load of money to do the work, I'm not stupid.

Please do not misunderstand me, I respect the nobility of having fire protection and those who fight fires.
If I have a crusade, I do not, it would be corruption of fire fighters, the political manipulation by profiteers and social degenerates.
This mans dilemma seems to look like it is that.
Either that or the news media is intentionally trying to stir up the American sprite and show us that we need to be more aware of what is happening to our rights, our wealth.

I think from reading the article that the man is trying to express his discontent about the ex-potential growth of the normal established charging practices of the fire department without prior notification.
His dissatisfaction is being met with arrogant defiance and challenged with unjustifiable use and abuse of egotistical public authority.
Making it a personal attack of retaliation on the man, which seems, should be against common law.
All to common from my personnel experience with today's "modern" fire fighters.
They had developed this intolerable, unacceptable attitude long before I got the imprecision they began considering themselves deputized by homeland security. Probably due to their emotional immature greedy imbalance.

If this dufus cant take care of his property, he shouldn't be allowed to have it. Take it away and give it to someone who gives a damn about his land and his neighbors.

It's called mutual respect. He presented his concerns and the fire fighters informed him of how his problem can be solved and that they can be of no further help to him. I understand that the bureaucracy of how his claim had to be handled is frustrating, but the fire fighters don't make policy, they are the instruments of policy. No one likes the idea of being yelled at while at work for something that they have no control over. I commend the fire fighters for calling the authorities rather than shutting the man up themselves. Many people don't have that kind of self restraint.

P.S. I think you meant:(Exponential growth), and (All too common)

The property is a bare piece of land with trees that the weeds are left to over grow every year. Costs went up this year and people are unhappy. They receive multiple notices every year and then finally the contractor who had the winning bid goes through and cleans up the lots. Someone has to do the work; and someone has to pay for it also.
