My mate had his lap top stolen after a bunch of chavs attacked him forcing him to drop his bags, and it took us 5 hours to be seen by the poilice.

but they have time to arrest some kid over an over due DVD, which could have been easily sorted by the library its self.

Stupid world

Well, I do suppose that after multiple phone calls, summons, and skipping court, you do sort of ask for whatever you get. Poor kid probably didn't even know what they were.

I do not want to offend anyone here, so I will say it this way. Do you remember the word they described Chris's girlfriend on the episode about the daughter of the Alaskan governor on Family Guy? Retar***... That's what the prosecutors were, thanks for wasting our tax money on a $31 DVD... They should have used the cost of prosecuting this person for education in that city.

How come there is no way to waive impound fee? I went to "court" to fight the ticket and won but the fee cannot be waived. Is the lot run by private industry?

$460 & he still didn't even get to keep the DVD, what a sensible world we live in!!!!

At least next time I need to call the police and they tell me they have no officers available I will know they are doing something really worth while, and to think people are paying taxes to keep these idiots in a job

I suppose the question is whether or not you believe his somewhat unbelievable story or, if like me, you think the kid simply stole the DVD and had no intention of returning it. If my suspicion is correct then yeah, throw the book at him.

there arent any pirated copies or there shouldnt be on ebay because they'll get removed or you'll get banned, they cost $1 because there second hand and many years old. Plus a new one will only cost $4 now. why go to alll the trouble to get it back.

"The city attorney told me, they weren’t concerned about due process. What they were concerned about was their DVD."

This does not surprise me. In Florida if your license gets suspended for any reason, the state is not required to tell you. So if you get pulled over you go to jail for driving on a suspended you may not even know about. Cases in point:

do you want to deal with a kid that is just a kid with a dvd, or with a group of violent people with your laptop?

You know it makes sense. That is one really good movie. I wouldn't want a riot happening at the Library from people wanting to check it out and the DVD not being there. :)
