When I was 19 I stopped and found my friend beside the highway about a mile from home where he had hit one of my uncle's black angus cows. I stopped and he got up and crawled into my car and I drove him 4mi to the emergency room. I almost went to jail for helping him had it not been that another uncle that was Sheriff and had me take an oath and promised him to not ever do it again.

Don't ever expect that your efforts will be appreciated when excrement hits the fan.

Most states have some form of Good Samaritan law that makes volunteer assistance immune if there is no recklessness.

Some even require bystanders to provide assistance they are capable of, even if that is just calling 911.

Isn't here a case pending in Mississippi where a couple of old loan officers got together, formed a company, and are now peddling aerial photos with colored lines representing boundaries - using the same impinging their right to free speech defense ?

It's not free speech if they are selling it.

If this case is at all instructive for Mississippi, the loan officers will lose...
