It's back-to-school time which means a lot of kids are standing outside and waiting for the bus. Well, a man in Virginia was sick of kids being loud and rude on his lawn, so he decided to put on an electric fence.
According to WTVR:
The man -- whose name is Bryan -- said he was sick of students who cursed, fought, and littered at the bus stop.
"They don't respect other peoples' land," Bryan said. "I pick up trash every day."
"Nothing stops people," he said.
He hoped the fenced -- hooked up to a battery -- would provide relief.
He said he ultimately removed the fence, later Tuesday , not because of any potential danger it may pose to students and passersby, but rather he learned he placed the fence on county property -- not his own land.
Concerns were raised Tuesday as children were being dropped off to catch the bus on the first day of school.
"I touched it, I got a slight shock, it wasn't that great," James Mehfoud, who owns homes in the neighborhood, said. "I understand his concern. I just don't think he understood the neighbors' concern about their kids. One of them could touch it, fall into it, and get shocked."
Bryan said while he would consider erecting another fence, he hoped he would not have to do so.
"The message has gotten across," he said. "Parents are posting and talking about it."
