    Meanwhile, in an alternate American reality, he will be championed as a warrior against government tyranny and his brand will thrive thanks to the newfound publicity…Heck, it might be enough to launch him into politics.

    I’m not going to dignify his website with a link, but the headline on his homepage suggests that he may have a bit of an attitude problem:

    The best gear on the f*cking planet. Sold direct, for half the price.
    Designed in the USA.

    More functional, more comfortable, more waterproof …
    “hell, it might even get you laid”

    Classy guy…

    “Outdoor clothing company” might be a bit of a stretch when every product is crowd-funded by pre-orders.

    Maybe a little bit of justice.  He did 50 hours of “community service” for his last infraction.  I have always wondered what that type of “service” that might be.

    This kind of person generally ends ugly.  Give him a few years.  Karma always wins.

    In a former life, part of my role was helping to rehab offenders. Scotland has a well-developed community service programme, and in our area much of it involved helping out less well-off older people with projects like painting and decorating.

    In conjunction with counselling and groupwork it was very effective in changing attitudes and reducing reoffending.

    One of my warmest memories was an interview with a notorious local ruffian who had repainted a house for a sweet old lady. She had been genuinely grateful and given him a nice gift as a thank you. This hardened petty criminal burst into tears and said that no-one had ever valued him as a person and thanked for anything before. The whole experience was a turning point in his life.

    So keep open minded – when done well community service can be very effective – far more effective than yet another short prison sentence.

    Whether it would have helped a crazy like our guy here is another question. He may be beyond reaching…

    Tough sentence. He agrees to follow the rules from now on. And I get a big fine for going 65 in a 55.

    Arthur, yeah, and, in addition to a $250. fine I got a $450. PER YEAR for THREE YEARS insurance increase for a 10 mph speeding ticket! There is no justice.

    You all didn’t look remorseful enough. We were going to Canada and had this idiot doing 15 under for like 30 miles and finally we can pass. Pass, get over and drop speed…and of course there was a cop right there, in the middle of BFE Wa state…..sigh. He popped us. But maybe he saw me glaring at my husband and said husband looking very shamed…and he gave us a stern warning and only 5 over. Paid that ticket promptly and called it a day. He got us like 20 over when he hit the gas to pass….grrrrrr. Then he said “I can’t blame you for wanting to pass that person, just do it safer”.

    Insurance going up for moving violations actually IS justice. 10mph speeding can be no biggie on the freeway but dangerous in a 25mph. I am all for drivers paying more insurance if they get a speeding violation ; I also  appreciate the (small) break we get for good/safe driving. That is the way it should be.

    Geoff he in the United states community service can be in a public library staking books. So i would say he didn’t learn anything if that’s what he did as public service.Iam just presuming and thinking . He sure doesn’t seem like the type to learn a valuable lesson.
