Walker: Turns out the local sheriff helped track Barnes down by running her license plate, all as a favor to the owner of the restaurant.According to the Houston County Sheriff, Darrell Allison, though, it was no biggie.But, countered local state Rep. John C. Tidwell, "The way I interpret it, it would be illegal," he said, explaining that license plate information is to be used only for law enforcement purposes. "The information should not have ever been given over to the business. That is information that is supposed to be dealt with by the state's agency or the official."Choosing sides between pigs and politicians isn't easy but I'm gonna have to go with the politician on this one.
Sass-O-Rev: FTA: "I just feel like I've been violated".wtf is up with that? Violated? That's become a word like "disrespected". People are hauling it out for every and any time someone confronts them.I'm with Watubi on this one- asinine tag all around.
animesucks: i have no problem with charging non-customers to use a restroom. if you don't like it, pee in a bush
JohnAnnArbor: "Humiliated" is another one. Oh, someone asked you a question at a checkpoint? You felt "humiliated"? Poor baby.
spentmiles: I hope everyone involved in this story dies of the wasting disease.
mediablitz: JohnAnnArbor: "Humiliated" is another one. Oh, someone asked you a question at a checkpoint? You felt "humiliated"? Poor baby.Hmmm. I wonder what word you would use if someone showed up at your door after illegally getting your personal information via the cops, and demanded something from you. Hell, even had you arrested. Let's just go with that.Poor baby...
Gifted Many Few: How hard would it have been just to get a cup of coffee? This is just another example of how the "on demand" world thinks. I don't have to pay for my music and movies. I can pause live TV. I can just go to the bathroom anywhere I please. I am all for businesses putting locks on the facilities. If someone wants to use it, sign out a key and leave your driver's license, so if you get buckshot on the seat, they will send a cleaning bill.

jumac: I work at a second hand store, we lock the bathroom but will unlock it for anyone who needs it. We lock it only so if someone gota use it at lest one employee knows. We have had to many issues with people going in and taking tags off of stuff to get a lower price or taking the tags off and putting the item on and saying it was theirs or, putting it under the cloth they had on(way to many times we see people come in wearing cloth bout 4 sizes to big and leave looking like the same set is tight on them). we also had people go in and destroy the bathroom if they are mad at us. had one destroy the toilet. Another kicked it so much and hard it fell over.
Gifted Many Few: Anyone that thinks the cop doing a favor for the restaurant owner is out of line, is wrong. People do favors within their profession all the time. That cop probably gets a free meal every so often for that.
