Virginia man erects electrified fence near school bus stop to keep kids off property

A homeowner in Sandston, Virginia is tired of students coming onto his property while they’re waiting at a nearby bus stop. So he chose to erect an electrified fence to ensure they would get the message.

“They don’t respect other people’s land,” the man told WTVR-News. “I pick up trash every day.”

That’s when the man, identified by ABC 8 as Bryan Tucker, decided to set up an electric fence, which WTVR-News reported is powered by a battery.

The fence separates the man’s front yard from a school bus stop, according to the news station. He took the measure because he claims simple “no trespassing” signs didn’t do the trick.

“Nothing stops people,” he told WTVR-News.

On Tuesday, when many children were waiting to take the bus to the first day of school, people began to raise concerns.

"I touched it, I got a slight shock, it wasn't that great," James Mehfoud, who lives in the neighborhood, told WTVR-News. "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."

Outraged parents called officials with the Henrico County Police Department, ABC 8 reported.

Tucker was later told to remove the fence because it was technically placed on county property. However, he can reinstate the fence as long as it stays on his property line, according to the news station.

Kids will just use the fence to light up their joints.

From my experience having a school bus stop near my shop one school year, I'm surprised he didn't skip the electric fence and go straight for machine gun nest. Every living plant nearby continuously trampled or stripped of leaves and branches; every object touched and fucked with and ruined/worn down/stolen. Parents sitting on cars not belonging to them and threatening to kill you when you tell them not to.

A few complaint calls to the school district and some of the people started behaving slightly more respectfully but mostly not. After that year the district just stopped sending school buses to this ghetto-ass block.

I would have used land mines instead.

He needs to double layer it, the outer most first fence is not electrified. And thus, in order to jump the 1st fence to reach the second, a trespassing charge can already be placed upon the assailant. And then, the 2nd fence is fully electrified. And now, the trespasser has no choice but to go back, otherwise he's caught for trespassing.
