The kid was dumb enough to be brazen about it in plain sight. What would happen if a news camera filmed this officer NOT busting the guy becasue he felt it was not a serious enough crime. Imagine the news and headlines that would make?

Kid was dumb and got busted....simple

hahahaha, a role model !
as if buying a bootleg movie is some terrible crime. Why dont you go b!tich to TDK, or Maxell or Toshiba and ALL the companies who make money off of blank media AND burning software ?
No.... you dont say anything about that. Try thinking things all the way through before speaking, loser.
Uhhhh...duhhhh I never heard of computer data...uhhh duhhhh. DVD's can only hold movies! I wash myself with a rag on a stick.

YOU should think things through if you can't think beyond getting Lion King for lil Jimmy and Janey, as)sclown.

the ones you want to see are the ones that are still in the theatre and they look like crap on the dvd. the best way to steal movies is join blockbuster mail order for $15/month and burn all the dvd's you want.
Actually NetFlix, Blockbuster takees the liberty of editing the movies they rent to their standards...no thanks.

$5.00 is the going rate for quality DVD's in Dallas and the poor quality jobs where it sounds like you're in a chamber with shadows walking across the screen go for 2 and 3 bucks.

What shocked me most is that cops are actually walking beats in Nassau and not sitting in their car somewhere. I don't think I have ever seen a cop walking the streets of Nassau.
Give the cops a break. There's only so many "investigations" they can do where they get repeat massages and happy endings before they bust the place. Between that, and sit on the highway and dish out tickets, what else do you expect them to do? Fight crime?

IF THE STUDIOS SOLD DVD'S AT THE PRICE THEY SHOULD BE - 4 OR 5 BUCKS EACH, THEN HE WOULD BE OUT OF WORK. LEAVE HIM ALONE.

You guys just don't get it.

A producer, the guy with the cash, has 10 guys come at him with movie scripts. He funds each movie. Out of the 10, one movie makes him some money...enough to cover the 9 other bombs.

This it how it works in entertainment. You buy a CD, 1 good song, 9 others are garbage. Publish a book, novel, comic, etc...same ratio.

You need a blockbuster in order to recoup your loses on the other things you LOST money on.

In the end, if you advocate stealing an American made product, so a sweat shop in China can churn out thousands of knockoffs, then you are nothing but a loser and a hypocrite.

It has nothing to do with being on LI, or not. For the record, I still call myself and Islander...yet I bask in 300+ days of sun, can swim 6 months out of the year, my gas bill never exceeds $50, same for electric, water...(cable is still $100, though), and I own a 3k sq foot home, and still make a wage that could make me live on LI, but then I would have to scrimp and save...and yes, probably couldn't afford the extra $5 for a legit movie. Take it or leave it.

In the end, you're an as)shat if you advocate stealing. Jaywalking doesn't take the food out of another American's mouth. Lets not kill the last thing America can produce...entertainment.

THE END

The answer is many of them will be enjoyed by the cop and his family and friends.
You are 100% correct!

considering that the studios cost is only about $0.25 per disk, we are the one's getting ripped off if we buy at the usual $19.99 retail.
