Since then there has been repeated harrassment and intimidation over seeking safe harbor. This culminated and/or contributed to the death and John Nye during Katrina. On his way out to his boat that fateful day, John stopped by my boat secured in the protection of a spoil island. I recomended that he pull his boat in behind the island, and he replied, "Nah, I don't want to deal with City harassment."
After Katrina I decided to stay behind the island as the result of health issues consequent to being run over by a City employee in a motor vehicle (its easier for me to get to shore). Since that time I was cited twice, and arrested once. The charges are basically all for obstructing navigation and being illegally moored. As usual the City ignored due process as well as state and federal law. Now its going to be put to the test in court. The funny part is, if I go to jail, as an imprisoned criminal I'm entitled to medical care. As an injured City employee I'm not.
I'll keep dinnerkey posted as time allows, but tell me someone, isn't being cited three times under three nearly identical boating laws a little redundant (particularly as criminal public records violations and numerous other criminal abuses of office go unoticed)?
