Quite a rumpus has ensued following this man’s gentle reminder that private property is, in fact, private:
A homeowner has divided opinion by coming up with a unique method to stop people taking a shortcut across his front lawn.
CCTV footage posted on TikTok shows several people getting soaked by an automatic sprinkler if they get too close to the man’s house.
At the heart of all of this is the extended form of socialism which gives people the “right” to disregard someone else’s property rights just because it’s a “shortcut” (i.e. they being too lazy to walk an extra few yards along the sidewalk).
And if a mild soaking seems outrageous, consider anti-personnel mines, which ia what I might have considered in his situation.
