Evidence, if you need it, that Trump’s cement or steel border wall is a country’s best friend when it comes to arrogant, illegal fence runners.
Mexico’s human smugglers are having a grand old time, ramming through the corrugated junk metal fencing that’s there with heavy smuggling vehicles, terrorist-style.
Neighbors ran over our fence. Dad installed concrete fence that wrecked 8 of their cars.
Our property line is kinda like a square and it is surrounded by road from two sides. Keep in mind that on one part of the road we let our neughbors use 1 square meter of the land so they could use the road safer and not damage our property This is cruicial information.
Fast forward 20 years, the road remains gravel -ish. Nobody wanted to pay for the asphalt road. One day my neighbors order a massive truck filled with tons of wood.
The truck driver runs over our fence. Nobody wanted to pay for the damage. Our fence is made out of multiple bushes, trees and a little bit of metal fence too. These plants were now completely destroyed and a part of metal fence completely bent. We had to replant these plants and place a new metal fence. My father told me this was not the first time this happend but actually third. I couldn’t believe it when I heard this.
So this is where the revenge begins.
My father is a police officer in the department where they mostly handle frauds, drug busts etc. He knows the law well.
He dug up the property line marker and placed plastic barrels filled with rocks on our property. In the next 6 hours 3 of our neighbors came knocking on the door because they hit our plastic barrels filled with rocks. They were angry and wanted to call the cops. But they never did. Because everybody knew that little part of land was still our property. One neighbor in particular treathened my dad that he will throw a fucking pickaxe at my father’s back. Over the period of 1 year these neighbors hit the barrels so much with their cars that the barrels are now worthless.
My dad was furious and he changed his petty revenge into a prorevenge. He cut some wood to use it as a mold. He bought cement, sand and metal poles. One peaceful afternoon my father and I cemented that whole part of the land and placed some lovely flovers on top. So when they hit the concrete they can smell our flowers of victory/defeat.
As we expected. 5 neighbors in total wrecked their cars on the new fence and nobody came knocking on the door.
Tl:dr Neighbors ran over our fence. Did not want to pay. Dad installed a better fence that wrecked their cars.
The moral of the story: When it comes to a border wall, cement (or steel) barriers work, especially against a**hat scofflaws and other assorted criminals.
