Good point. I wasnt disappointed she got a public defender, right to a fair trial and all. It's just the cost. I don't think it's fair for the taxpayers to have to foot the bill, serve on a jury, or generally waste their time coming to a decision. The bitch was clearly guilty all along. It's just more of a travesty of justice, or a perversion of the system I suppose. Posted: May 8th, 2013 @ 8:34PM
Agreed. The only thing worthwhile about this is the fact she can't afford to pay an attorney. Her civil appointed defenders have cost the taxpayers of that county $1.4mil DEFENDING her. Add the prosecution costs, and the people of that county got royally fucked. Posted: May 8th, 2013 @ 4:55PM
It's a paradox. In a perfect world, we wouldn't need police. In the world we live in, the police are increasingly flawed in their efforts and actions.
I try not to generalize in my life, but cops/police are one area I do generalize: there's A LOT more BAD cops than good ones. It's too easy to be a bad cop, an there's no reward in being a good one. Posted: April 19th, 2013 @ 10:05PM
Hey BlueFalcon, would I be wrong in assuming that those skills paid off later in life?
I know in my experience, doing all the stuff you mentioned, it made me more comfortable with the PC, and now I'm a sysadmin. I owe most of that to the tinkering I did for my games in DOS. Posted: April 4th, 2013 @ 2:00PM
Here in Texas they wil dismiss the registration ticket if you get it taken care of before the court dsate.
I would assume it's the same. If you get the registration before you're set to go to court, they might dismiss it and give you a small fee. Again, in Texas, it's like $15. Posted: March 31st, 2013 @ 4:45PM
They're looking for people with warrants. At least that's the guise.
There was an article in our local paper recently about how our police force (of which I believe Enforcerman is a member - I'm pretty sure at least) just got one of these new surveilence systems. It tags the license plates and alerts when it finds a registered owner with a warrant. Then they just wait & haul them in.
Fish in a barrel.
It's too easy to mis-use, however. Posted: March 19th, 2013 @ 2:21PM
