Coast Guard Rescues Stupid Guy From Jetty

The Times- Standard reports on a rescue of some stupid guy who drove out on the North Jetty despite high surf crashing over the rocks. As one witness pointed out of the truck, "“It was just stopped on the part you shouldn’t even be driving on,”. 

This is the sort of thing I was referring to when I asked the question here not long ago as to whether there should be "stupid fines" for people that get themselves in trouble and have to be rescued when it was fairly obvious their actions might get them in trouble to begin with.

I suppose it's easier said than done but this is why I think it would behoove the Coast Guard, or whoever is in charge of the North Jetty, to use signs and barricades when surf conditions are dangerous. That might keep some idiots from having to be rescued. If they go around the barricades to danger areas anyway, that's all the evidence we should need that they were brazenly doing stupid things, were warned, and should be fined if rescue is needed.

Yep, another local dumbshit like the local politicians who won't go after the cause of cost driven governance.

It is like the fire departments and service calls for the insured......Insurance companies are not paying 100% of Policy holder damages......Not to mention taxpayers are being defrauded by the local fire departments as they never campaigned district funds would be spent out of district.

Con artistry 101 - learn how to dupe people for money!

If it weren't for stupid, what would the adrenalin rush freaks do all day? Sit in the clubhouse playing classical music?
They're paid to bail stupid out of stupid situations. Live & learn the hard way, or the easy way. We got your back.

this yahoo had arkansas plates
same clueless state the clintons came from
and i have seen lots of rescues in the past when they were billed for their own stupidity .
seen lots those in sonoma county when i worked there during floods of 83, 86 and 98
go past road closed signs there and you will be billed for rescue if needed

A rocket up their asses is better stupidity, they get punished too for it.

It is the bystanders who suffer.

Like the local pig with illegal fireworks blowing off fingers, a bystander is maimed for life.
