In today's litigious world, it's a wonder no-one has sued him!
I find it reassuring that so many people tried to do something, to the point of driving up onto his yard.Keep up the good work, people!But yeah -- fairly dickish move there, Mr. Homeowner.
@anonymous: In today's litigious world if the old lady had suffered a heart attack the asshole would have deserved the lawsuit AND the criminal charges he got. This is the real world equivalent of an internet troll: He thinks it is fun to laugh at people who still have a shred of human decency.
Boy, you need to lighten up there, Jaundiced. A joke is a joke, after all. Okay, so it wasn't the greatest idea - is that any reason to call him an asshole or troll?
