RoyBatty: I hate the way our society has these machines that just grind people up and grind people up and grind people up.
liam76: Then they show me to a door and outside, it is a bright, hot, sunny day. If all they wanted was to shove me in a video arraignment for five minutes, why didn't they just give me an appointment and have me show up? What was the point of housing me in a cage for a day and a half?I don't farking get this.If it is a non-violent crime you are being charged with and they didn't take you to jail when it happened, why not give you a call set up a time and see if you will just show up.Even if 50% don't, you have still saved police a lot of time and money catching you, driving you to jail, housing you and feeding you.
Communist_Manifesto: I My Friend got pulled over with an oz. of mushrooms once. First thing the cop said to him was it smelled like marijuana (it probably did). Asks for his license and registration then goes back to the squad car. My friend couldn't stop thinking about how he bad he had just farked up, he only had one year of college left and that was starting to look like it wasn't going to happen since he was going to be a felon now. The cop came back to the car and handed him a 1 point ticket for an unsafe lane change (which was legit). Then he asked my friend if he could search the car since we didn't have anything anyway. My friend told him "Sir, I respectfully decline your search" and the cop just let me him go. I will never stop thinking about how different my life would be if I didn't know what to say to the cop to avoid a search. I really feel for the lady in this story, she is one of the many victims of our ridiculous war on drugs.
coscausticevil: you know, i feel bad for her, and the war on drugs is farked up, but she really comes off sounding like a huge pussy. She spent a day in jail for a misdemeanor, she got some probation. Yeah, it sucks, but come on. This made her break up with her boyfriend? She's going home shaking, crying? She needs to see a therapist? She really needs to toughen up some.
