Rochester resident compares shoveling ordinance to ancient British tyranny

Here's a note from an anonymous reader following our latest — light — snowfall...

Rochester Minnesota 2012 department of public works. Citations
for Removal of snow from sidewalks. Rochester England 1200s King John
miss-used taxation of the Poor for self gain.
Rochester Minnesota 2012, 15th February 10.20am. Little snow. Less than
24hrs $120 for forced removal of snow after tenant cleaned majority at 8pm
night before. $50 to even challenge. Rochester England 1200s King John
Over taxed, unpopular King - lost most of kingdom - Hated by People!
The citation rule is fair when justifiable, but less than an inch,
majority already cleared, temperatures above 32oF???? Shame.
Where is our Robin Hood Rochester Minnesota. This POWER is a blight on
public rights.
Shame on you King John.... History remembers you.Shame on you
Rochester.... This is dishonesty of the worst kind.
Ashamed Rochesterian

I'd like to see something more concrete. I haven't been fined all winter. Maybe this person has done some other things to bring to cause themself to be under a microscope?
