They would never do this to a white forest woman.

"McCormack was hospitalized Thursday with chest pain, the neighbor said. She needed medical attention again on Friday after she was taken into custody "

Well, at least she won't have to pay for the second round.  I'm betting she has no health insurance.

barc0001: Simple, effective, and nobody needs to go to jail.  What the hell, USA?


Because locking up the highest percentage of our population than any other country on the planet(which perhaps the exception of Best Korea, but even then it's close) is something we can still claim being number one.

barc0001: ThatGuyGreg: Yeah, shiatty timing, but maybe she should pay that ticket or show up to fight it next time, hmmm?

What the hell is it with the US and their fetish to lock people up for anything possible?  I don't know if it's even POSSIBLE to be arrested in Canada for an outstanding traffic ticket, I sure has hell have never heard of it happening.  We just let the bureaucrats handle it.  You don't pay a ticket?  Good luck renewing your insurance.  Drive your car without insurance?  You'll get pulled over by the cops, given another ticket and your car towed, then left on the side of the road with plenty of time to figure out how you're going to get the scratch to pay for your tickets, insurance and impound fees as you continue your journey on foot.

Simple, effective, and nobody needs to go to jail.  What the hell, USA?


So they yell "Stop," and if that doesn't work, they yell "Stop" again. Maybe that works in a country with twelve people in it.

"I can't believe they arrested her at this time because she did lose her trailer and everything in it," the neighbor said.


Because she's a flight risk now, that's why. The popo let her ride for as long as they could to rack up the maximum fines. It's now time to harvest that crop before it heads out and is never seen again.
