    Re: Woman takes plea deal in lousy lawn case

    This was a bum rap. The cops should never have tried to arrest her in the first place. I remember this story from a few months ago. It's not like her lawn was in really bad shape. It was just brown from lack of water. There wasn't garbage around or tall weeds or dog pooh everywhere.
    I don't know her financial situation but she is an older lady and maybe she was just trying to save some $$ by not watering. What's wrong with that. Some snotty neighbor thought it devalued his property so he puts in a complaint. That's just wrong!

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.
