Lori, not every Brookfield resident is here for the same reasons. Some families have been in this community for generations. The problem is so many of you newcomers think that the function of this community is to spend lavishly to improve your property values so you can just sell out and abandon the town once again for your next venture. This may never have occurred to you, but there are homeowners in Brookfield who are retirees on fixed-incomes. These are the people who actually built the community that you moved to - and they have a right to not want to pay higher taxes to educate your children. Many have no intentions on selling out and moving like so many who come through here -these are their homes and have been their homes for many more years than you have been here. I am for the school budgets myself, but we shouldn't be ignorant that people have different interests. Not everyone opposed to yours is "unable to pay their taxes." I'm glad you are convinced you pay more taxes than everyone else and are on here gloating about it. It means you will leave one day -to spread your bs to some other town.

ts, what you just wrote is like something out of Stalinist Russia. Those aren't American principles of justice. Just around the corner everyone will be afraid to make an angry face while mentioning the word "Obama", and you will be hauled in for a slew of charges of INTENT to do this and that. It's coming, and I am afraid, ts, you are fitting right in with the modern unAmerican mentality that is helping destroy the nation. People allow themselves to get worked up by the Mass Media they negligently expose themselves to, and pile up all the regionally distant incidences into one pile on their brains, and then in a sort of frenzy take it out on any circumstance that somehow relates to it - "just in case". It's a sickness, perhaps a phobia - fear of hypothetical possibilities. The law says nothing about age in this matter, nor about statistics around the nation. The law says you can shoot "safely" on your own property, which this man did. The neighbor failed. You are supposed to report something if you have probable cause to think the law is being violated. The neighbor heard shooting and perhaps saw a gun, which are not reasons to call the police. The police should have know better than to ignore that there was no probable cause and give the false impression the neighbor acted correctly. Bobby's rights were violated.

The state law is designed for the dangerous discharge of firearms. Doesn't seem that the criteria for dangerous were met. Not everything that goes pop is dangerous. Local ordinances would decide if safe target shooting is permitted, zoned, or forbidden.
