>We've all at one time or another heard the story about the litle dutch
>boy.  He found a hole in a dike and put his finger in there to plug the
>leak. He stayed out all night until help arrived in the morning.
>Here's how the story would go if it happened today.
>A little boy was walking down a country road next to the dike.  Just
>when he was ready to turn around and go home he saw a leak in the dike.
>He didn't know what else to do so he put his finger in the hole and
>stopped the leak until the next morning when a local farmer came out to
>plant his tulips and saw the boy.  He picked up his cell phone and
>called 911.
>Within minutes the police arrived and took the little boy to the local
>offices of the Child Protective Services.  They brought in a doctor who
>examined the boy and determined the only thing he needed was some sleep.
>After the doctor left the CPS invesagators interrogated the boy for six
>and one half hours.  When they finished the interrogation they sent the
>boy to one of their shrinks who determined the boy was the victim of
>child abuse since he endured the cold, damp conditions all night rather
>than going home.  Armed with the report a CPS case worker went to the
>local judge and filed charges of felony child abuse against the
>parents.  That same afternoon they were arrested and bail was set at $3
>million each.
>Meanwhle the farmer was concerned with the leaking dike.  Not only was
>he afraid it would burst, but the salt water would kill his crops.  He
>called the dike repair people, they came out and examined the dike and
>told him they couldn't fix it until they finished a two week
>environmental impact study; then they left.  The farmer went back to the
>barn and got a gas powered pump and enough hose so he could throw it
>over the dike.  He set everything up, started the pump and watched it
>pump away the water.
>While the little boy was with the shrink; a carload of EPA agents
>arrived at the farm.  They confiscated the farmer's pump, and hose and
>arrested him for potentially causing harm to the environment and not
>waiting for the environmental impact study.  His bail was $100,000 and
>when his trail concluded he got 5 years with no parole.  The parents of
>the little boy were also convicted and they each got life without
>While the trails were going on Sara Brady found out what had happened
>and she reacted by calling a press conference and announcing she was
>founding "pump and hose control inc."  She said her organization didn't
>want to take sump pumps away from law abiding citizens.  She said she
>just wanted to stop the unrestrained harm to the environment.
>Not long after the trials had ended the dike burst.  Farms, villages and
>homes were swept away and hundreds were killed.  Immediately the
>government charged the contractor who built the dike and the cement
>company that supplied the concrete for the dike with felony neglagence.
>The lawyers didn't waste any time either.  They filed civil suits
>against the contractor and the cement company asking for damages in the
>amount of $6 billion from each company.  Eventualy both companies were
>forced into bankruptcy and 5,000 people lost thier jobs.
