Dumb Criminals

How do you like the way my lawn looks now?

The man, whom local media identified by his last name — Miller — mowed a two-word expletive on his front lawn. According to City Prosecutor Marty Conboy, one of Miller’s neighbors complained to the Omaha Parks and Recreation Department about the man’s unsightly lawn. City statutes require that lawns be cut close to the ground. Tickets are issued for weed growth over 18 inches. When park officials ordered Miller to mow his front yard, he did so selectively.
He mowed an easily-read obscenity that was about three feet tall. Irate neighbors quickly discovered that they had very little legal recourse. Miller’s actions are protected under the First Amendment.
