Zoning

This zoning business that city councils get involved in can affect people’s lives. But this one takes the cake:

Witnesses said a business owner shot and killed himself during a City Council meeting Thursday night after members voted against his request to rezone his property.

Bo Ward, owner of Bos Barber Shop, had told the council which approved first reading of the zone change last month that his business would go under if the change was not granted.

Following the vote Thursday night, Ward approached the council and said, Yall have put me under, Im done.

Ward then shot himself in the head with a small handgun in front of the council and about 50 people attending the meeting.

    Anyone remember Bud Dwyer? Maybe that’s something only Pennsylvanians would remember.

    It’s a problem of the oppressed, they too often shoot the wrong people.

    I bet it felt a lot different for them to see the results of destroying someone’s livelihood rather than just hearing about it later (or not.) The behavioral researcher types say the best way to correct bad behavior is to provide immediate feedback.
