GLENDALE, AZ (CBS 5/3TV) - Stanley Roberts goes searching for items to furnish his new apartment in Phoenix. But he can only pick up household goods from off the street. 

[SPECIAL SECTION: Caught Misbehaving]

In his own unique way he searches the streets of Glendale looking for whatever items he can fine. He locates mattresses and couches, although one needed some tender loving care. On one street he finds a large hot tub. 

The point Roberts is trying to make is all the items found should never be on the streets in the first place, it's actually called illegal dumping and it's illegal in all of Maricopa County. 

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.

This entire segment is pointless. Look--People doing things they're not supposed to do! Bad! Bad People! Do you think people that litter, park in handicapped spaces, abandon carts and whatever else are going to change? It's just stuff for old bitties to sit around and complain about. If there was a call for people to get involved and actually change something, that would be different. But it's not. It's just stupid filler. "Let's Be Ineffective and Whine About Shitt With Stanley Roberts".

Breaking news: people dump junk. Back to you in the studio.

Seriously..this drivel is on a news site?

Yo Stan, thanks for housewarming party invite, but I'll have to decline. Bed bugs, lice, bodily fluids, not really into that. But hey, good job picking up the streets.

Some of this is clearly dumping. But in Glendale we do have loose/bulk trash pickup. Its not illegal dumping.

Does Stanley Roberts always talk about himself in the third person?

Yes. But wait there's more: "In his own unique way he searches the streets of Glendale looking for whatever items he can fine." His unique way he searches is "his own", and he needs to fine whatever items- which seems rather unique, in a rather broad way. "But he can only pick up household goods from off the street." Says who? Says Stanley, referring to himself in the third person. Has he been ordered by a court to perform some sort of unique community service? I guess he doesn't think it's silly to pay rent to live in a place furnished from the street. Not sure where they got this guy. He doesn't seem like a journalist, so I will refer to him as a "reporter caught misbehaving".

This makes my skin crawl: "He locates mattresses and couches, although one needed some tender loving care." And it along with the others are now part of the decor in Stanley's apartment? Yuuuuuck! How does he kill the scabies mites and the lice, a weekly dip at the vet's office?

Are people dumping beds & stuffed furniture because those types of things are hard (or illegal) to resell or donate? If so, maybe we can sue or arrest the bedbugs.

We always try to cross over into Phoenix or Peoria to dump our furniture. We don't want to get tased 11 times!!

AZ Native

Nope you can't crossover into Phoenix or Peoria - illegal in ALL of Maricopa County. Head to Tucson.

TCAZ

We only go to Glendale to buy fireworks.

Peoria is a gross suburban shithole full of rednecks and white trash who think they're living the high life (probably also what they drink). Dumping garbage there might be an improvement.
