did you guys watch police ten 7 yesterday? a guy jumped on his friends car's roof while it was being repossed and was arrested for wilful damage and disorderly behaviour. the owner of the car was right there and he didn't tell his friend to get off his car's roof, yet the police arrested him. is this because when a car is repossed by the courts for unpaid fines the car is now owned by the courts? if not, why did police arrest this guy without a complaint from the owner?

lucky he didnt also get charged for reckless engdangerment of his own life :p

you seem to ask a lot of questions about what the police can and can't do, and what people can get away with.... are you just fascinated by policing and the law, or do you try to push the boundaries and see what you can get away with?

Yes I did.

And the cop quite clearly said, that because the car was now the property of the courts, then he was wilfully damaging another person property.

I would be pretty sure that her benefit 'entitlement' has been garnished. Still doesnt make the equation any better as she is getting slightly less but as a tax payer we are still paying her fines. The fines of course go to the Justice Dept so it sort of makes it way back into the government system, less all the wasted time and admin costs of course.

WTF is your major malfunction?


No really.


The car was, at the time, the property of the courts.

Ohhhh, even people who don't like the cops would have to respect them in that situation. That Margo was a nutter, telling the balif to get a "real job" than talking about her fines getting paid by Social Welfare... classic! The whole bunch are lucky they didn't get locked up for disordely behaviour or the like. They're quite keen on there Tui down there I see? Nice to see "white pride racism" is alive and well in the deep South.......
