  • That's not a 25ft. fence

    Look at the curb height. And compare the height of the barbed wire at the top of the fence to the rest of the fence. This fence is no taller than 12-14 feet.

    Actually ...
    If you look in the background, you can clearly see a man walking along the fence, and even if He were six feet tall, the fence is no more than 8-9 feet high.
