I find that very hard to believe. Do you have a link to some of their arrests?
<quoted text>
No, I don't care enough to look for that stuff!:) My friend said the cops told her that (and the security footage they collect holds it up). But as PE pointed out, it's most likely a regional thing, varies by city. Also, my friend's neighborhood is South Mpls, but in north Mpls, I guarantee you, taggers are not white guys ages 25-35.

The last one is about an old dude tagger, but the last paragraph refutes your assesment.

Average age 17 in MN.
I think the cops told your friend that age range sarcastically.
Besides, if he gets paid for turning in taggers, who is on his video?
<quoted text>
I don't think the cops were sarcastic. And my friend's tapes, as I said, show white guys.

Story in our local paper: Man drove drunk, hit and killed someone. Part of his sentence is he has to visit her grave for one hour every year for 10 years.
Parents: Would you want this? Would you even want him at the grave of your dead child?(I assume her parents are okay with this or they wouldn't have done it.) But I guess my instinct would be, I'd want him to have nothing to do with her grave whatsoever.
There was something similar to that around here a couple years ago. Dude had to do the lawncare and maintenance at the gravesite for X amount of years.

I dunno, I guess I'd want the guy to be reminded of what he's done... But that also may seem like cruel and unusual punishment.

Hey, we've all made mistakes in life.

I want to take the bag of McDonald's fries that the woman sitting next to me on the train is shoving in her and shove it somewhere else.

So I read this right before I had to go to the store. There's a Mc Donalds in that shopping center. I ordered the extra large FF...because you made me crave them. I ate three. <shrug> I hate Mc Donalds.

certainly you can't be comparing the TASTE of McDonald's fries to BK's fries. BK has the worst blandest fries of any fast food. McDonald' s is the gold standard.(them seasoned checker fries are good)

Nick and I had McDs Wednesday night b/c we were busy shuttling kids to baseball games and needed to eat. It was maybe the third or fourth time -- in over 3 years -- that we have gone to McDs. WE both had gut aches later.

THeir fries USED TO be good, then they changed them. Now? Eh... Same with Wendy's. Their new fries are kind of icky. I just order a baked potato now if I happen to go (which is rare).

Around here Checkers is a south side/ south suburbs operation. Literally there is one on the north side and that is in the Austin neighborhood which can be problematical.

Geographically it looks to be in black neighborhoods. Is that the demographic for FL too ?

Never been to Checkers. Don't have them out here, and even with all my traveling, I've never encountered one.

The best fries in the world come/came from this place in Oakland, CA. I used to drive up there just for the fries. The burgers were kinds meh, but I would arrange a whole day around going to Oakland just for the fries.

It's been a minute since I've had them (like 20 years) though.:(
