WITTMANN, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - More than 30 miles outside of Phoenix is the small town of Wittmann. It’s a small town with a big problem. People are driving all the way out to Wittmann to discard their household goods and trash.

[SPECIAL SECTION: Caught Misbehaving]

Stanley Roberts met up with two residents of Wittmann. They have made a personal effort to keep the desert clean, but it’s been an uphill battle. People are dumping everything from trash, to mattresses to dead horses, and yes, even a boat.

They want Maricopa County to not ignore the problem and enforce the laws on the books.

Caught Misbehaving with Stanley Roberts exposes individuals who brazenly defy the law or common courtesy, risking social and/or legal consequences. His reports air regularly on CBS 5 News at 10 p.m.

"They want Maricopa County to not ignore the problem and enforce the laws on the books."

Poorly worded.

How about "They want Maricopa County to stop ignoring the problem and start enforcing the laws on the books."

Or simply "They want Maricopa County not to ignore the problem and to enforce the laws on the books."

This reporter is an idiot. I don't think anyone's misbehaving and this an attempt to gain black viewers.

Stanley, I watched the story. Nobody was "caught misbehaving". Seems like there's some dumping going on in Whitman. But that's a news story, not a feature.

I believe this article belongs in Mexico. Those invaders are the one's responsible for this.

Those invaders are bringing mattresses springs, tv's, water softeners, couches and doors with them? Only in your own mind.
