Fred Parsells Appears to be a Thief – UPDATED
About five minutes after sending me an email threatening me over my Liberty 94.3 yard sign, Fred Parsells arrives, parks in the street, and appears to steal the same sign from my neighbor Clyde Freeman’s yard. Why didn’t he come steal the one from my yard? He claims in his email it was due to the NO TRESPASS NOTICE I issued to all city employees back in May 2011 – apparently that actually stops him from coming on the property without a court order. Here is surveillance video of Fred committing the act this morning at 11:35-37am:
Will Fred be held accountable for his crime? Doubtful. Remember, it’s not stealing when people calling themselves “the government” take things that don’t belong to them. Stay tuned for updates. I’m not taking the sign down.
UPDATE: Fred claims he didn’t steal the sign and that he was “authorized” by Clyde to remove it.
Here’s Fred’s email, where he tries to play like he is my buddy. Hey Fred, I don’t know how you were raised, but I was raised to think that friends shouldn’t steal from each other.
RE: 73-75 Leveret Street sign violation
Greetings and Happy New Year Ian:
Recently it has come to the attention of the City of Keene/me via an anonymous complaint made to the Keene Police Department that there is an illegal sign on your property located at 73-75 Leveret Street. Although I am otherwise banned from stepping foot onto your property, except under color of a court-ordered administrative warrant, I was asked by the City Attorney’s office to notify you of the complaint and violation as noted below. In that you and I have and do communicate by email, I am opting for this means of communication so that my and the City’s effort of notification is well documented.
Pursuant to Section 102-242, Uses Regulated by Districts, and Article VIII, Sign Regulations, of the City’s Zoning Ordinance, signs are not permitted in the residential zoning district in which your Property is located. In addition, unless Liberty 94.3 broadcasts from your Property, said sign is an off-premises sign, which are prohibited in every zoning district in the City. See Section 102-1292 (13) of the City of Keene Zoning Ordinance.
Kindly remove the illegal sign on or before January 25, 2013. Failure to remove the sign may result in additional enforcement action pursuant to RSA 676:17. Please contact me at (603) 352-5440 if you have any questions.
City of Keene
P.S. Can we do coffee sometime?
