Norman, Okla.–A woman says she didn’t know she had a felony charge for over two decades for not returning a VHS rental. Caron McBride says she found out she was charged with a felony when she changed her name on her driver’s license in Texas after getting married. “I about had a heart attack,” she said. Court records show the charges were filed in 2000, saying she “feloniously embezzled” the video cassette tape “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” from a store called “Movie Place” in 1999.(Snip) She says over the years, she’s been rejected from five jobs, and now suspects the charge was following her.


Illegal aliens have their fines dismissed, and are given envelopes of cash and free transportation to wherever they want to go. Homeless alcoholics and drug addicts get free apartments. People who steal a presidential election laugh up their sleeves, as do the bad actors who created and now profit from Covid-19. But woe betide the woman whose boyfriend failed to return a videotape in 1999. Land of the free, home of the brave; that's the USA.

OP, When I was a kid I heard preaching of how, near the end times, good would be evil and evil considered good etc. I remember thinking well that’s just nuts!! And here we are. I’m not saying Jesus is coming anytime soon but that would surprise less than a lot of what’s going on today.

She should have returned the tape. OTOH, shoplifting up to $900 is not prosecuted at all in many places now, and I'm pretty sure is not a felony anywhere. How in the world does a missing $20 videotape wind up being a felony? Seems like the charge was excessive from the beginning. I'm not a lawyer but I have several as friends and we have talked about the law many times. I think I have somewhat of a grasp of the basics, such as what a felony is, and AFAIK, it has to have a dollar value above some certain amount, in many places $1,000 was the line drawn between felony and misdemeanor. Seems like it was $500 in some places. Perhaps it's different in Oklahoma. And why "embezzlement"? Perhaps because it wasn't breaking and entering or armed robbery? Not even a good movie.

I was told one time that a video rental business could not only charge for the price of the movie but the loss of income for not having it for so many days. The costs can be exponential. Maybe that's how it got to be a felony. This is unnecessary.

#2, I have it on good authority that tort laws in Okieville hit felonious nature after somebody grabs at least one pig or three yard birds. I know that because my old college roommate (Boomer Sooner) had his Black"s Law Dictionary ate up by my stupid black labrador who found it more comfy to hang out with the inmates down the street at Central State Hospital for the insane. That dog vomited more legalese than I wish to remember. It's by gosh true and I got witnesses. Saxon ended up living the rest of his days in a prairie dugout with an inmate somewhere "out on the yard".

T remember being told about this when there was still a "Movie Store" in my town. I think the felony charges were related to "pirating" the movie and is a federal charge.

An Academy Awards production worker was reportedly mugged while setting up this year's ceremony at Union Station in Los Angeles.

If it wasn’t the bicycle license, it could have been the lack of helmets. Or the front lights. Or the rear lights. The viral video of Perth Amboy police officers confiscating bikes from a group of mostly Black and Hispanic teens and putting one of them in handcuffs this week renewed debate over the role police officers should play in enforcing low-level offenses like bicycle ordinances. Some viewers saw a group of young people behaving recklessly. Others saw overreach after the officers informed them they were violating an obscure local ordinance requiring licenses for bicycles and seized four of their bikes.

The number of U.S. Capitol invaders charged with crimes has topped 400, Justice Department records show, and in a recent case the FBI disclosed new twists in identifying and ensnaring a suspect. A Washington Times review of scores of law enforcement affidavits justifying an arrest show this pattern: Agents examine thousands of videos and photos taken inside the Capitol on Jan. 6. In old-school detective work, officers pick out a target and compare Capitol images to online posts from that day or previous days based on tips from the invaders’ friends, co-workers and even family.(Snip)FBI agents in Kentucky turned to computerized facial recognition

A retired NYPD officer in the “wrong place at the wrong time” was one of 15 people shot Saturday amid a surge of gun violence in the Big Apple, police sources told The Post. The 30-year-old former cop was leaving a party in Red Hook, Brooklyn around 11:30 p.m. when she heard gunshots and realized she’d been hit three times in the torso, sources said. Cops believe the shots came from a group of men who began brawling after they were denied entry to the bash, according to the sources.(Snip) At least 410 people have been injured in 372 shootings so far

Vice President Kamala Harris said Sunday a mix of aid and diplomacy will make progress in stemming the migrant surge, but she lowered expectations for an immediate fix, saying the flight of people from Central America to the southern U.S. border is “not going to be solved overnight.” President Biden put Ms. Harris in charge of dealing with the migrant surge, which has become an early and visible challenge for the administration. The White House has pointed to cyclical surges at the border, though some migrants have cited Mr. Biden’s own policy changes for coming. Ms. Harris hasn’t visited the border,

Why Wind and Solar Energy Are Doomed to Failure 44 replies
Posted by Dreadnought 4/25/2021 12:40:56 AM Post Reply
Wind and solar energy are both essentially obsolete technologies. There is a reason why only the very rich or the very adventurous sail across oceans: the wind is unreliable, and at best produces relatively little energy. Nevertheless, liberals have concocted fantasies whereby all of our electricity, or perhaps our entire economy, will be powered by those fickle sources. There are a number of reasons why this will never happen, but a paper published last week by Center of the American Experiment argues that land use constraints are the most basic reason why wind and solar are inexorably destined to fail. The paper, titled Not In Our Backyard, is authored by

A journalist and CNN analyst on Friday advanced the controversial claim that an Ohio police officer responding to a knife-wielding teenager should have shot her "in the leg" and should have considered not even using his gun to address the situation. April Ryan, a reporter with theGrio, made the argument—a common one among police critics—on Friday’s edition of HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher. The show’s panel was discussing in part the recent police-involved shooting of 16-year-old Ohio resident Ma’Khia Bryant, who was attempting to stab several other teenagers with a large butcher knife when a responding officer shot and killed her.

There’s something off about Kamala Harris. And no, I’m not talking about her hard-left political beliefs, the lies she tells, or her endless reinventing herself for political advancement. In that regard, she’s just another leftist politician. What’s bizarre about Kamala is her inappropriate laughter about things that ought to inspire solemnity. What makes laughter inappropriate? It’s inappropriate when you’re speaking to a crowd and you’re the only one who laughs. Of course, that can also happen to a bad comedian, but there’s no indication in the clip below that Kamala was trying to tell a joke.

n the debate over whether one should or should not get the COVID vaccination, much has been said about the “science.” However, I’m not sure any encyclopedic knowledge of “science” is required to make this health decision. Simple statistical analysis should suffice to inform one’s ultimate decision. Statistics is primarily a study of probabilities. Fortunately, as regards COVID mortality rates, these probabilities are now known. That is, COVID mortality statistics broken down by age cohorts are now “known knowables.” For example, through statistics as of April 7, the odds an American under the age of 25 would die from COVID were 1-in-106,217.
