    Arrow 5 years for tree massacre

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/n...,3416206.story

    LAS VEGAS - Residents of an upscale retirement community near here knew Douglas Hoffman was upset that trees were blocking his backyard view of the Strip.

    But at a hearing Monday, where Hoffman was sentenced to up to five years in prison for killing more than 500 trees, a prosecutor said the retired construction worker had threatened to unleash "chemical, biological, nuclear mass destruction" because of it.

    Why did he buy the property if he didn't like the view?

    LOL, it sounds like he loved the view ... however, some evil trees grew and blocked the view.

    I guess that after he took care of the evil trees that bocked his view, he was very neighborly and killed off ALL the evil trees ... you know, just in case they bocked someone else's view.
