Looks like Neil got himself a big does of that Fort Collins community. I can feel Neil’s pain but what needs to be addressed here is all of Neil’s mistakes and his denial of reality.
I’m not doing this to insult or make fun of Neil. I’m doing it so that others may learn from his mistakes. It also would have been helpful if Neil had consulted an asshole early in the game.
1. You built your house in an area that has no space between the houses and surrounded by people you don’t know. Even worse it has a Homeowner’s Association.
I know that yards are a thing of the past. The push is to shove as many houses as close together as possible. More houses in a given space are more houses that can be built and sold. As towns progress to becoming cities more and more is shoved into smaller spaces.
While the houses were very close together, my wife and I picked this neighborhood because of the clear sense of community and friendly people who lived there.
You had no way of knowing the people around were friendly. This was you projecting what you wanted to see upon the world. They do, as you discovered, have a clear sense of community. The same dog-centric statist cult community which permeates Fort Collins and excludes you.
I sent the HOA’s Vice President a note, explaining the magnitude of the barking problem, the impact it was having on me, and the neighborly way in which I had asked the neighbors for help in resolving the issue.
The HOA Vice President wrote back, saying that the HOA wasn’t going to take any steps to resolve the issue, “since there are so many folks with dogs,” and “they all know that our own dogs are prone to bark at times, and do not wish to be hypocrites.”
The existence of the Homeowner’s Association only makes the cult more difficult to dissolve. What would ever lead you to think anyone in the HOA would care about your concerns when pitted against the interest of the established and bonded group. It’s Us verses Them and you are the Them.
The HOA Vice President then responded with a shocking list of reasons why he didn’t like me, personally, and explaining how close his friendship was with the dog-owning neighbors. It was just a scathing and vicious personal attack.
How did you not see that coming?
2. You attempted to negotiate with stupid people. Who own dogs.
Dog owners in Fort Collins are one of the most selfish and entitled groups of people, when taken as a whole, that I’ve ever encountered. They are only trumped by veterinarian students at CSU. Most of whom are dog owners as well.
I love when the tell me “My dog doesn’t need to be on a leash. My dog is different.”
Most urban dog owners are mentally broken. They can’t relate to other humans and have no social skills. Thus they get dogs so they will have friends.
This time, though, the neighbors’ response wasn’t particularly cordial. They said that “other dogs bark, too,” despite the fact that no other dogs were barking mere feet from my bedroom, waking me up, or preventing me from sleeping in any room of my house.
“Other dogs bark, too.” There’s a good defence. Jerry Sandusky’s lawyer should have simply argued “Your Honour, my client should not go to prison. Other men fuck 10 year old boys in the shower too.”
Do not attempt to negotiate with stupid people. Or evil people. Or evil stupid people. Yes I realize this means you can’t negotiate with 99% of the population. Deal with it.
3. You went to the State for help.
The government of Fort Collins does not exist to serve you. You exist to serve them. Pay your taxes. Obey. Consume. Shut the fuck up.
I reached out to Animal Control, citing the pre-sunrise barking, the near-midnight barking, and the hours-on-end, day-after-day barking. On several occasions, I held the phone in the air, allowing Animal Control to listen to as much of the non-stop barking as they wanted.
Despite having a conversation with the dog-owners, Animal Control would go no further. They claimed to require statements from complainants at two separate addresses. As I later found out, this wasn’t actually Animal Control’s policy.
A government employee lied to you? Colour me shocked.
I asked the Fort Collins Police Department to intervene.
But you soon discovered how to get the police to pay you a visit didn’t you?
Meanwhile a city mediator involved. How did that work for you?
As part of the lawsuit, I learned that the dog-owners had been in lengthy back-and-forth correspondence with the City Mediator (who never returned my phone calls). The Mediator was counseling the dog-owners on how THEY should handle the situation with THEIR ‘annoying neighbor.’
To the Mediator, the dog owners, and the neighborhood, I was the annoying, dog-hating neighbor.
Again: the Mediator never got my side of the story, and never spoke with me.
As I later discovered, the Mediator already had a relationship with the dog-owners.
The Mediator soon left the City of Fort Collins. Her department said that there was no file on my case. Apparently, the Mediator had destroyed it before departing.
Again we learn it’s about who you know. Again we learn it’s Us verses Them. Again we learn you exist to serve the State. The State does not exist to serve you.
The Judge then awarded the HOA $73,000 in legal fees, in addition to the nearly $100,000 in fees that I had already spent.
This $73,000 was payable to State Farm Insurance, the policyholder of the HOA’s Officers and Directors’ insurance.
This took my life’s savings, left me broke, and … absolutely stunned.
Neil. How the fuck could you have been surprised by this outcome? Are you paying no attention to what is happening around you? Of course the government took your money and gave it to a corporation. Are you completely out of touch with the world? This is what democracy looks like.
I, again, called the Fort Collins Police Department, and begged them to intervene. I told them that the pattern of behavior of the neighbors – against a medically-disabled man – was escalating. I told the Police Officer that I was “medically disabled, in chronic pain, have an immune dysfunction, and have been battling serious health issues.”
She – literally – laughed out loud at me, and said that this was “the most ridiculous thing she had ever heard.”
At this point Neil has become completely stupid. The government has shit in his face over and over and over yet he continues to go to the government for help. Is anyone seeing a pattern here? Hello!
I later learned that the Judge is married to the sister of a residential and commercial property builder, who runs Homeowners Associations, and that the Judge’s daughter worked for the Judge’s brother-in-law, as a Property Manager of these Homeowners’ Associations.
Welcome to Fort Collins.
4. You bought a gun.
You will not get any sympathy in the People’s Republic of Fort Collins if you own a gun.
You went outside with a handgun in your hand. That is the dumbest thing you have ever done in your life. In some places no one would care you had a gun in you hand. But in the People’s Republic of Fort Collins you made a huge mistake.
Fort Collins Police and SWAT team arrested me.
There were probably 20 law enforcement officers, in full riot gear, all pointing guns at me. There was an armored SWAT vehicle in the street, two doors down, and a sniper pointing a rifle at me from across the street.
It’s easier for the police to get more money if there is more crime. Thus they have an incentive to create as many sensationalized events like this one as they can. Again you have served the State by making the world look dangerous and frightening the sheeple. Your arrest reduces to a statistic which the Fort Collins police can use to make the argument that terrorist activity is on the rise in Fort Collins and they need more funding for more guns to fight terrorism.
And by “Merica I mean money.
5. You hired a bad lawyer and didn’t get a second legal opinion.
Unfortunately, my attorney — from the onset — told me that there were no federal discrimination issues, in the case. She was wrong. If she had made a simple phone call, to see that my case WAS Federal, the case would have been heard outside of Fort Collins, and would have — almost certainly — yielded a different result.
Under the ADA virtually everyone is handicapped and discriminated against. You just need a good enough lawyer. Or at least a better lawyer than the other guy.
6. Neil finally accepted reality but by then it was too late.
The local newspaper — the Fort Collins Coloradoan — won’t cover my story. They were only too happy to put my SWAT arrest on their front page, including a picture of me in the orange jail outfit. They seem totally uninterested in publishing what REALLY happened.
Color me surprised….
The Coloradoan is (as is all mainstream media) simply the propaganda arm of the government. The only time the employees of the Coloradoan remove Obama’s cock from their mouths is when they need to kiss the ass of the Fort Collins government.
- Neil may be disabled but he is also a white man. Who bought a gun. And had a job. In the People’s Republic of Fort Collins a white man with a gun and a job is the enemy.
- Neil is not related to anyone in the local government or police force and thus is the enemy.
- Neil does not have any dogs and is thus the enemy.
- Neil discovered the hard way that he is less important than dogs.
- Neil tried to be nice and negotiate with stupid people. Neil tried to be reasonable with unreasonable people.
- Neil talked to lawyers, mediators, judges, police, government employees. None of it helped. Had he simply consulted an asshole things could have turned out different.
