    Default Let's hope Friday the 13th is unlucky for this guy

    Friday the 13th is hopefully unlucky for Joseph B. Janda Jr.
    Don't recognize the name - well he has 43 cases from DNR.The guy is only 22 years old.Let's hope the judge finally hands down a sentence that gets his attention.This time it is for having undersized oysters but our hero has charges for under sized crabs as well.

    43 times - unreal.The Sunpapers in Dec. 11, 2008 did a story on him.Bet it made his father really proud .

    If you got time - drop an E-mail to the St. Mary's court system.
    They say that life's a carousel - spinning fast, you've got to ride it well.

    My, it seems this young lad is in need of some proper disciplinary techniques. Let's start a petition to the state to save the state money. We'll outsource judicial matters pertaining to DNR to TidaFish! Hell, I think we could arrange for a fair trial...followed by a top notch execution. I got an acre we could use to dump the bodies...I mean to inter the dearly deceased.

    That seems a little extreme. For now, let's start out with a good old fashioned whippin'. I have a leather belt that would be perfect that I would be willing to donate to the cause. My right hand is busted up so someone else would have to administer the punishment One smack, accross a bare ass, for each illegal crab or pound of fish. It may not stop them, but, it will get their attention. If these guys want to act like children who can't follow the rules, let's treat them like chldren who can't follow the rules.

    If people poached deer, rabbits, squirrels or any cute furry critter in the amounts they do fish, the masses would want them tarred and feathered. Could it be that people who do not fish, think of fish as just a source of food, the way they think of cows and chickens? Purchased by the pound at the grocery store and maybe even think these poachers kept the price of fish down.

    Look at the way people cry when the State has a managed hunt at Loch Raven or Goucher College? These hunts are for the good of the deer, but, it doesn't stop people from from protesting to try to stop them. If someone was caught with a ton of poached deer it would make national news and the public outcry would be deafening. When it comes to fish, most people don't read it or just don't care.

    This started out as a post on accountability, but, I think I just convinced myself that Striped Bass should be a sportfish. No profit, no poachers.

    I'll climb down off the soapbox now.

    I encourage everyone to go the CCA link above and submit a letter to the judge. It is easy and only takes a few minutes. What I wrote is below...


    Dear Honorable Richard Fitz,

    I am sick and tired of waterman who are often repeat offenders for numerous poaching violations getting away with minimal fines and little to no punishment. Some of these poachers have literally dozens of violations, yet they continue their illegal ways with impunity. Their callous disregard for the bay, the citizens of Maryland and the honest waterman is disgraceful. Even more disgraceful is the factthat there is no deterrent to make them stop and that the legal system in Maryland is unwilling to send the message that these crimes are serious. The Chesapeake is being ravaged while our political leaders and the judicial system turn a blind eye.

    I implore of you to vigorously prosecute the case of Mr. Janda and if he is found guilty to assign the maximum penalty permitted by law. A message must be sent that this illegal behavior will no longer be tolerated. Please stop poachers now.

    I am on CCA's email alert list and saw the notificationof Mr Janda's trial before I went to tidalfish today and immediately sent the following email:

    This person who you are prosecuting for crimes in your county has not learned from the first 42 charges brought against him, so would you please prosecute him to the fullest extent possible.

    If you get a conviction, please remind the judge that the slap on the wrists this person has received in the past have not deterred him from continuing to violate the laws of this state that protect our natural resources and he should be given the maximum penalty allowed.

    Sincerely,


    Let's see how many emails we get sent and see if it has an effect. Then go beat down the state house doors if it does not.

    Capt George,

    I don't think anyone here believes this guy doesn't deserve a fair trial. Anything less would be Un-American. However, it is also our right, as Americans, to call for full prosecution, and if found guilty, judgement of maximum penalties.

    We can't continue to coddle poachers.
