cman: DamnYankees: Why is a 45 year old woman responsible for the bills of her 27 year old son?

I think it has to deal with his estate. Since he most likely died without a will, things get a bit difficult on who exercises what and how. He is responsible for the debt, but since he has passed away, his estate is responsible for the debt.


As if I ever needed proof of the indisputable fact that you're a goddamn moron...

According to police, the car was stopped when Robinson ran into it.

This is the best they can come up with It's like the cops aren't even trying any more.

Ghastly: Is there some cobblestone black market that I am completely unaware of? I never thought I would read a sentence that contained the phrase "stealing cobblestones".


You're a bit offtopic We're talking less about the idiot accused of stealing cobblestone and more about the idiot who got hit by a cruiser without a conviction...

When I read that I was thinking if it was my son. (If I was a father) "Ok, we'll pay for the damage to your car. Then, I'll fatally run over one person from your family. You can pay for the damage to my car, and then we'll call it even." Hopefully the grieving family can get a good chunk of money out of the police for their insensitivity instead.

Wait, wut? Untangle your panties, Sally, no one has said anything like that.

cman: 1. Man was running away after committing a felony. Someone gets injured or killed in the escape or committing the felony it is always the responsibility of the party who was breaking the law, as well as any damage to property is also the responsibility of them


What is the point of quoting cman there? He's not saying anything about deserving to be killed for stealing. All he is talking about it legal culpability.

Hey, I know a case for stealing cobblestones. Or at least some sort of paver.

The guys that stole my dad's wheels used cobblestones from a few blocks away to use as jackstands. Since they hit a few other trucks that night for the exact same OEM rims there was a sizeable dent in someone's retaining wall.

Of course, the cobblestone theft was handled by one detective, the wheels by another. About two weeks later the cops came by asking if they could have the stones back.

So the kid lived at home and had the same address so they sent the bill to that house. The article says "they want my son to pay". The mom opened his mail and found the computerized bill and assumes the family is on the hook for the damage.

Well, this is pretty goddamn stupid, but it's certainly not an actual cop who is responsible for this. It's some public servant who is getting paid too much to do a job that a high school graduate would be over-qualified for.

For fark's sake, in my line of work we have annual layoffs. Those layoffs tend to get a lot of under-performers, but even those who are doing well can still get the axe. So why the fark do government workers have so farking much job security while being able to perpetrate acts of pure retarditude such as this?

I'd try to get one of those jobs myself, but I'm pretty sure doing so would drive me to suicide...

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have is a very mediocre car; a car I acquired last week on trade-in. A car that makes it a nightmare to commute to work. If you write off the cost of the hood, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for your son, I will find your son, and I will hit them with my ass car and bill you for it.

The police's apparent claim that he ran over to the static police car, threw himself at the hood and hit his head so hard he died (in spite of many witnesses that they ran him down) doesn't bode well for their chances in court if the judge is sane.

I think it has to deal with his estate. Since he most likely died without a will, things get a bit difficult on who exercises what and how. He is responsible for the debt, but since he has passed away, his estate is responsible for the debt.

Considering that he was not convicted of a crime, the damage was assessed six months after he was dead and I doubt he had any estate to speak of, the police will be lucky to come out -$710.


Considering he was accused of or allegedly stealing cobblestones (for cash exchange) he didn't have jacksh*t for an estate, mostly debt and unpaid child support. The police are trying an angle to be the victims of a possible intentional mohomcide.

============

Felony? Assuming that he was stealing cobble stones, how do you know it was a felony? In New York, theft of an item less than $250 dollars in value is petty larceny, a misdemeanor offense. Spitting on the sidewalk is a misdemeanor offense. Do you believe people should get the death penalty for spitting on the sidewalk?

A couple of years after my mother died I got a phone call from some outfit claiming to be attempting to collect on her final medical bills.

I gave them the telephone number for the DFW National Cemetary.

Never heard from them again.

legion_of_doo: In Detroit, a long time ago, the fine citizens would sometimes hurl heavy objects off of an overpass, down onto motorists on the area freeways.

So there's one reason to pry up cobblestones from the street.

There's also the general vandalism, destroying things for no good reason. Civic pride is kind of gone, not just in urban areas, but just about everywhere. It's like the opposite of civic pride is praised now, and what people feel they should do.


It's fun destroying shiat in urban ghettos. Making things shiattier is a blast.

Were they Belgian Block (which people call cobblestone) or run of the mill cobblestones?

Maybe he thought the shiny bits were diamonds or silver and could be mined from the Belgian Block?

FTFA - "According to police, the car was stopped when Robinson ran into it. Witnesses, however, maintain the car hit Robinson directly."

People always die running into cars.

A long time ago, my Dad stole cobblestones from roadwork where they were being dug up and replaced to create a walkway in our garden. I guess he deserved to die too.

My dad wound up driving a rental Toyota minivan for a week waiting for the insurance company to come up with replacement wheels. He swore the speedometer was tweaked to lie by 5 mph after he drove past a "Your speed is" radar thingy and... That almost explains why so many farkers are doing 5 mph under the speed limit in the middle lane.

Yeah, I don't know why they were stealing the OEM rims from the Texas Edition Silverados. The retaining wall was at the intersection of Village Estates and Medina in Highland Village, but Google doesn't have a streetview of that area. Which is odd since they have most of Highland Village.

FTA: "According to police, the car was stopped when Robinson ran into it. Witnesses, however, maintain the car hit Robinson directly. Robinson was rushed to a nearby hospital where he fell into a coma."

There is no farking way that any human being, even farking Usain Bolt, could move fast enough that running into a stopped object could not only knock them unconscious, but put then into a coma with irreversable brain damage. If he did run into the front of a stopped car, the front of that car would have come up to his pelvis, maybe mid-thigh... the brain ain't down there.

What's worse is that the police thought they could get away with what they did on an entire street of witnesses in daylight.
Lying sacks.

ReverendJasen: Ambivalence: I was not under the impression that parents are responsible for debts incurred by adult culdren. The "son" was 27 when he was killed. The city can get that money from his estate (regardless of whether there is one), otherwise parents are not financially culpable for their adult child's death.

Parents aren't culpable regardless. If the man's estate consists of two joints and a pair of Nikes, they can file against his estate all they want, they'll just end up pounding sand.


They probably DID file against the estate, and the writer or family is twisting it around to act like the bill's coming directly to them.

45-year-old Laverne Dobbinson told The Daily News, "We're still grieving, and this is like a slap in the face. They want my son to pay for damage to the vehicle that killed him. It's crazy."

No, crazy is when your career-felon crotch-dropping causes law enforcement to dedicate part of their time to keep him from stealing shiat, and then causes more trouble by face-planting a parked police cruiser while blitzed on bath salts, and then the media gives you a chane to apologize/rationalize your son's lifetime of criminal activity, rather than than curb-stomping you into a matching coma, giving you an emergency on-the-spot ovarectomy, and then suing you for everything you have to make up for the generations-long parasitization your brood of cancers on society has caused the citizenry. That's crazy.

You are thinking in free society terms. The government has a monopoly on legal violence. It may collect from whomever it wants to collect from. Only a costly court battle may stop it. Maybe. but the courts are also the government so there's that too...

I think being polite would be the best course of action. They have the weaponry, body armor and training to project force. I think I'd be all "Yes sir" / "No sir" and attempt to chill them out. They also have the legal right provided by society to shoot. There are some bad cops. But the best way to deal with a bad cop is not to go toe to toe, but be polite, smile, then report the incident to everyone from the media to the politicians to the attorney general. Getting loud or trying to physically dominate one is unlikely to be a successful tactic.

So according to the cops the guy somehow ran into a stationary car hard enough to put himself in a coma and then die.

That seems unlikely to say the least.


Don't forget: He ran into it hard enough to dent it for over 700$ worth of damage.

Dude, this is Murika. I remember a video showing a couple teenagers grabbing some snacks and bolting out of a convenience store. The article was about how if the cashier had been armed this would have "ironed itself out then and there." The comments were a circle-jerk about how "If I'd have been shopping there and seen this, those punks would've gotten their snacks in the form of lead. Did I mention my dick is farking huge? It is, just in case you were wondering... about my huge dick.... it's farking huge."

Yeah, dumbasses. Arming every 3rd shift convenience store worker/meth addict with a loaded handgun and telling them to kill anyone, even if they're 12 years old, who they think is taking a pack of gum is a great idea.

There's de facto guilt - factual guilt. And there's de jure guilt - legal guilt, guilt after the case has been adjudicated and the defendant found guilty.

One can be de facto guilty without being de jure guilty. See mob bosses or OJ Simpson.
