So she had a huge thirty dollars overdue in fines!! It's a good thing it was not some truly stupendous sum, and such as for instance forty or fifty dollars, since in that case the local authorities might have decided they had no choice but to have her hung, drawn, and quartered and/or burned at the stake - or maybe even just immediately shot to death on her own front lawn and without even first having a trial.

Some cops are out for the money. It's institutionalized theft. Read more about corrupt cops at http://StopTheDrugWar.org (the Chronicle weekly news). It's a war against the poor. These institutions are rigid, overly large, inflexible, inhuman, and faceless. Big Brother, dystopia. Detach from it whenever you can.

While I understand that a library is a public service, it is run with our own tax dollars, so
that is why this story is so outrageously ridiculous. The police have nothing more important to do ? The library system is that hard up for thirty bucks ? I live in Florida, where absurd things happen on a daily basis. This is beyond moronic. I thought there was a law, possibly federal that would guard against arrest. If you were to not pay library fines here, you would obviously not be able to utilize the library, but you could in effect go years without paying a fine. What I would like to know is, if the books had been returned and they were out for the fines, or did she still have the books in her possession ?
