Buzz’s Marina Pt. 2 & Rodney King

I’ve previously discussed my neighbors’ Christie and Mike Henderson’s attempts to have 12 campers be permitted on their property at Buzz’s Marina click here. Their already Kafkaesque story took an even stranger turn as described on the front page of Friday’s Enterprise:  a zoning inspector and Deputy Sheriff “raided” them at 1 a.m. last Sunday morning because it had been reported by a neighbor that someone was spending the night in one of their campers click here.
Couple issues spring to mind here but my overall take is – Christie and Mike are two of the nicest and hardest working individuals around so why are they being treated like this?  Even at the worst case scenario, that they violated the law by letting someone stay the night in a camper in February, what greater good was being threatened to merit a midnight raid by two County employees one of whom was probably being paid overtime? Come on, man.

I watched the Rodney King special the other night.  It’s been 20 years since that cops-being-cops incident occurred but to his lasting credit Rodney still has the best line “Can we all just get along?”  If the neighbor can not or will not do so, can the County at least please quit hassling the Hendersons and authorize the camp sites?
