Jerks among us

Just want to say ‘thanks’ to the person who dumped six tires on Castleton View Road last night (Monday, Aug. 21). Thanks for leaving them next to the road instead of throwing them down into the streambed. It will make it easier for my family to retrieve them and dispose of them properly.

I can’t comprehend the level of ignorance and total lack of respect for our society and community it would take to do such a thing. FYI: illegal dumping in Virginia is a Class 1 misdemeanor punishable by up to 12 months in jail and $2,500 fine. The landfill is cheaper.

  1. Mark – Your sarcasm is appreciated. I’m sure a few of us got a chuckle from reading it. The bad news is – there’s a very high probability that the folks who dumped the tires can neither read nor write.
