Dentist Dumps Syringes - Contaminates Jersey Shore
Can you believe it? A prominent dentist with homes in Pennsylvania and the Jersey Shore has been accused of "unlawfully discharging a pollutant and unlawful disposal of regulated medical waste." Lets say it in plain English...he dumped a bag of 300 used needles, 180 used cotton swabs and other materials from his medical office. He admitted to tossing the material from his boat a few miles offshore and, Surprise! The debris washed up on shore, closing down the beaches of Avalon, a resort town about 25 miles South of Atlantic City, throughout the Labor Day weekend.
I just don't get it. We have had years of "Earth First", "Earth Day", "Save the Earth", "Save the Ocean" and you would have to be in a coma not to know that dumping is illegal and immoral.
Thomas McFarland needs more than a fine for this ignorant and willful offense. He should get jail time and be forced to watch Jacque Cousteau documentaries and "Finding Nemo" over and over until he cries.
