    "and his newest one.....
    YOUR HUSBAND DOESN'T WANT THE CHICKENS!
    He originally called my husband at work yesterday and said he was going to cite us. My husband not able to keep his cool BLEW!and told him to talk to me. He was not going to deal with it.

    If anything I am able to keep my cool .....lol
    the whole time I was talking with him yesterday I didn't raise my voice or make any unfounded statements. In fact I told him to have a nice day when he left, in the most well mannered voice.

    Officer Bumpkin raised his voice and outright lied to me."
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Unless she is lying and I have no indication she is, the officer is being difficult, and overstepping his authority. He has made it a Pi$$ing match not her. Small town officers have lots of ties to small town blood, this appears to be a case of that. Thank god this state does not take kindly to such attitudes of officers, and gets involved even in small towns. She handled herself correctly there is nothing in the law that states you have to kiss the @$$ of someone kicking your backside. The more I reread and reread the problem does appear to be with this officer, I hope her state busts him. Nothing worse for police reputation than a rouge officer.

    You or any other officer should not take her problems with him as a slight towards law enforcement, she is only exercising her rights.

    Well, I'm not getting pulled into a pi**ing match, either.
    I have said all I need to say on this. Anything else is just redundant.

    I feel the fact I used capital letters is being interpreted as yelling. That is/was not the case.

    When the officer said that to me I was in shock to be honest. I had to think about it to figure out why he would have said that to me.
    I'm still a bit dumb founded. So is my husband.

    I happen to have a wonderful relationship with my husband. We talk about everything and anything. He knows my feelings as well as I know his.

    Quote:Holly I took your caps as to mean the officer was the one yelling, but if I am wrong please correct me. It does seem he is taking this little matter to personal if he is calling your husband at work. It appears he was trying to cause your husband some embarrassment at his job, calling him at work for such a small matter is really not kosher.

    The officer raised his voice.
    But with the post I was just trying to stress the fact he even said it!

    My husband is frustrated as his job requires him to cite Ordinances and Rules. he works for DEP Department of Environmental Protection. He does not want to be involved per-say due to a conflict of interest with his job.

    But is also dumb founded as to why this officer, When asked, can not cite the ordinance other than to say we live in a residential zone. Which in the ordinance is all it states. Nothing else what so ever.

    I tried to skim through all 3 threads and have just a couple thoughts.

    1. You must get a copy of your township ordinances. Do not wait for someone to "give" you the information. You need a hard copy of what the ordinances are/were at the time you got your chickens.
    Without a copy you will not have a legal leg to stand on.
    With a copy you can go to a board meeting and be done with all of this.

    Everything else takes second place and is immaterial to what the ordinance says.

    Get a copy then this board will be able to help you.

    I have a full hard copy of the ordinance.
    I also attended the Board meeting. The subject was brought up and I was able to talk for all of 3 min. I was cut off by other attendee's. An argument issued. Officer LESKIN (is his actual name) Asked my husband if he was calling him a BUMPKIN (in which is where he got his AKA name from us) my husband said no such thing.

    This is so very frustrating! Those in charge are not acting in a professional manner.

    And am at a complete loss as to my next move. Other than to have him Charge me and have it taken to court.

    I am calling our District Attorney general. I have had no response from that office yet. So I'll keep trying this following week. If I'm unable to get a response from them I will call the State Attorney Generals office AGAIN as it was told to me to do by them, if I didn't get action from the DAG office.

    BTW ... being charged with something that is not a LAW. Is Malicious Prosecution. The officer Disagreed with me on that when I told him. Stating this situation is against the law. Once again I asked where is it written that it is?

    PLEASE if anyone has a better Idea on how I should proceed let me know. I'm trying.... I really am.

    Even the news paper wouldn't touch this for me. Maybe someone would know how I should go about it. As what I did didn't work.

    If this is all it takes to get his knickers in a wad, he seriously needs another line of employment. I have been called much much worse, it comes with the badge. Yes this does appear more and more personal the more details we receive. I am laying odds the chief is related or friends with the complainers.​

    What if anything do the laws say about chickens?
