Show me someone who is an illegal dumper, and I'll show you a sociopath.

There is just no excuse to dump your trash anywhere. It's even worse when it's on private property. And even worse when it's on land where people were tragically killed.

I've done stories of these tornado ruins before. Yes, they're a bit of an eyesore, but they are also a sobering reminder of the 1970 Lubbock tornado that killed between 26 and 31 people and injured over 500 more.

To give you the CliffsNotes version of the story of this land: family members were wiped out, and for decades afterward, a surviving family member would replace bricks as if she was rebuilding the place. This is not an urban legend; this is something I saw and then researched. I've even been contacted by the family.

To make matters worse, we're not even that far from the Lubbock landfill. It's literally a couple of minutes away. All in all, this is a jerk move by someone who is a waste of human skin. I understand that you're not supposed to throw tires in dumpsters, but that's better than throwing them on someone's property.

So, when I say, 'show me an illegal dumper and I'll show you a sociopath,' I mean it. It takes someone who literally does not care about anyone else and only cares for their own convenience to dump things like this.
