CHAMBLEE, Ga. -- One Saturday in November, Kaveh Kamooneh drove his Nissan Leaf to Chamblee Middle School, where his 11-year-old son was playing tennis. Kamooneh had taken the liberty of charging the electric car with an exterior outlet at the school. Within minutes of plugging in the car, he says a Chamblee police officer appeared. "He said that he was going to charge me with theft by taking because I was taking power, electricity from the school," Kamooneh said. Kamooneh says he had charged his car for 20 minutes, drawing about a nickel´s worth of juice. Don Francis of Clean Cities Atlanta, an

Who paid for that electricity, and for the cop´s salary? That´s right, the guy who "stole" the juice. Not to condone what the green doofus did, but to point out that there´s very little gratitude or humility among recipients of transferred wealth.

#1 - all the taxpayers paid for that electric and the cops salary. Why should others pay for this guys car charge (even if it is only a nickel)? At this point, it´s about principal - if the guy was taking something else from the school, that would be theft too wouldn´t it?

Please read the article. This is not the first time Kamooneh has violated rules / law at the school. It sounds like Kamooneh feels he is one of those special people who is above the law. A real jerk.

This was silly. Why don´t they arrest me if I use an outlet at an airport that isn´t specifically for traveler devices?

They should have told the guy that it wasn´t for cars and left it at that unless he insisted upon being a repeat offender. I am sure that I wouldn´t like the guy´s politics but this is another example of trying to criminalize all behavior so that the government can have total control over us. If they wanted to be really petty in a more constructive way they should have sent him a bill for the power he consumed and turned it over to a collection agency if he didn´t pay. Arrest? Seems to me like the town has too many officers and could cut costs by reducing police staff if this is what they are doing.

Reading the article will reveal the following:

1. It wasn´t an outlet, it was an actual car charging station at the school.
2. The greenie had done it before and there was no sign/rule/etc saying he couldnt
3. The officer was rooting around INSIDE the greenies car ( a big nono) and said the car was abandoded, laughable at best.
4. Greenie got lippy and the incident escalated. Both officer and greenie are at fault here.
5. Greenie was not "arrested" on the spot. Paperwork was drawn up and a warrant was issued, greenie was arrested later, processed at station and relesed on $150.00 bail.

Actions like this just open the doors for ridicule. Is the town so much like Mayberry that this is a high crime worthy of the follow up with arresting officers or was it to show that you can´t treat Officer Fife that way?

Kick the irritating idiot off the tennis courts and move on.

Let´s follow the cops around and make sure that they don´t get a free cup of coffee while on duty and make all the school employees get searched for paper clips if we’re going to stress that it´s the principle that matters.

I sincerely despise the overuse of authority because it depletes the respect we should have for it. The spirit of the law should override the letter of the law.

The 5 cents is his and some electric vehicle advocacy group estimate so I´m sure its higher and would have been a lot higher if not stopped.
I see no different than if I pulled up to a gas stations and took off without paying for the gas. Do they need to put up a sign?
He was playing tennis without permission, not his son.
He sounds like a total jurk which is common for electric car owners.

This is typical liberal behavior. He is special because he drives an electric car. He is entitled to free electricity, no matter the worth. The rules don´t apply to him.

Spend $10,000 on both sides to litigate this through the courts.

The town, the school, the police department are all losing more than a nickel´s worth credibility and goodwill pursuing this inanity.

Actually #5, if he had a Volt, he would not needed to steal the schools electricity. Volts are EREVS, meaning, they have a gasoline generator to prevent them from being stranded without electricity.

At any rate, this type of theft is no different, then if I drive up to the gasoline pump at the schools bus garage, and steal gasoline.

This incident is another indication of how our ´morals´ have changed. I remember a time when people were trustworthy, no one locked their doors; and no matter how poor, people expected to do work to earn help. Yes it was a small community but there was respect for fellow citizens, and no government interference! I grew up in the right time.

There are a lot of good points in the comments, but my thought is that why should someone feel that it is OK to fuel their coal powered car from anywhere there is an outlet. It seems he feels that an open outlet is his for the "taking". Except in an emergency (and even that´s stretching it), anymore, an outlet should be considered private unless permission is given.

Personally, I think the guy should have been cited--especially if he was a repeat offender--with a small fine. Next time, a bigger fine. All this other stuff is idiotic.

That said, it sounds like this guy is a smug arrogant greenie that when he sees a socket thinks he can just plug in. You know what he is? The guy several years back stealing music on Napster and claiming it is all "public domain". He´s that guy.

Funny, I wonder how he would feel if his neighbor, short an outdoor electrical socket, just plugged his Christmas lights into this guy´s socket....

Oh, you bet he would be on the phone to the police demanding that "something must be done!".

The amoral opportunists of this world like the guy in question would have us all placard every thing, DO NOT STEAL THIS. Well, you know, that was placarded on a stone tablet that was brought down from Mount Sinai.

Now if you think people ought to get away with little thefts, just realize they´re probably not limiting themselves to little thefts. They´re cheating on taxes, and screwing people they do business with. After they exhaust their denials, they always have excuses. Does this sound like a holier than thou argument? Yes it does. That´s because these opportunistic thieves are less holy than I am. Their larcenies, small and large, corrode society as much as the knockout ´game´ attacks. Forget about embarrasing these low-grade sociopaths. Charging them is good public policy, though, to potentially shame some from trying the same thing.

Who says this guy took only 5 cents of electricity. The complaint states that he had been charging his car for more than 20 minutes on a high outout charger. But whatever the cost, the electric current was not his to take. And the perp (who happens to be an Iranian graduate student with plenty of money) could have gone to a commercial charging station and paid for it himself. I for one am sick of foreigners who come here and think the can help themselves to whatever they want.

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host.

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary.

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.
