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.



What was in the estate?

Besides cobblestones, I mean.

Well unless he had a diamond pickaxe, it probably would've taken a couple hours to get the necessary materials for his scale model recreation of Hogwarts.

Giltric: 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?

No one like a paving stone nerd, that's why the cool kids never invite you to their parties.

After seeing the picture of the guy, I don't believe for a second that he was stealing or doing anything illegal whatsoever. He's probably an apprentice stone mason and he was likely volunteering his time repairing the neighborhood sidewalk/pavement for the sake of beautifying his community. Clearly this is all one giant conspiracy and the cops have it in for this hard-working citizen's family. I have a reminder for the NYPD: This gentleman's taxes pay your salaries! My heart goes out to his mother who is obviously being victimized by a racist police department gone mad. What I also find surprising is that the police are specifically billing his mother. I mean, it's clear that this man comes from a stable nuclear family and the fact that his father isn't being billed is just another example of rampant sexism in the department. Certainly it's not as if his father is missing or otherwise unavailable.

Thank goodness the preeminent Reverend Al is involved. I'm sure his even-handed sense of justice, for which is he renowned, will be of crucial value to the gentleman's family during this awful time of senseless persecution. My prayers are with you and your family Tamon!

Rindred: I'd send a letter back to the city containing the address of his burial plot, saying "His current address is enclosed -- go collect."


Then they'll drive a cruiser through his tombstone and REALLY rack up a bill... after they shoot a dog and shut down a little girl's lemonade stand. And taze an old woman.

Karma is if a car hits the pothole where the cobblestones used to be and careens out of control and runs down the parents at the roadside vigil.

dhuyd: 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.


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.

fusillade762: According to police, the car was stopped when Robinson ran into it.

Sounds legit.


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.

cman: Bathia_Mapes: 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
2. Who the fark steals cobblestones?

...allegedly caught stealing cobblestones

He wasn't tried nor convicted, and even if he had been, the death penalty wouldn't apply.

You are correct the death penalty wouldnt apply. If the officers had malice as their intent, they will be the ones on the hook. However, as it seems to be a freak accident, he gets all the blame


Again, he was allegedly caught stealing cobblestones.

Allegedly. And if it reaches the level of a felony, it must have been one hell of a lot of cobblestones. Or they were made out of gold.

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.


Yeah. These things can get a bit confusing. Not Star Trek paradox style confusing, but close
