Leash Laws - Again
Original post made by Dog Owner, Charleston Meadows, on Mar 13, 2007
I choose to let my dog run off-leash. This action knowingly violates the leash law, which I do not support. It's OK to violate a law -- but ONLY if I'm willing to accept the consequences. That's civil disobedience, a great American tradition. But I must be willing to pay the fine if I'm caught. I must also be extra-vigilant when my dog is off-leash and actively prevent him from scaring or harming people. I must also be willing to bear cost or punishment if my dog harms someone.
