Book em' Danno!
Half of all "registered" sex offenders in the state of California cannot be located. Illegal alien/criminals live in this country with impunity. So Comrades, let's go after criminals we can find. We need to seize all of Shelly Koontz's property and send her to a re-education camp.

Ironically, the book title was The Freedom Writers Diary. Freedom is one thing she doesn't have right now.

Better book titles she could have taken:

The Holy Bible (Exodus 20:15 would have been a good passage for her)

Any title involving crime and particularly larceny

Why is there always one (or two) morons that side with dopes like the iOWA hO0pLE pOLiCE or post things like Jesus Was Black! Not like there is much to do in Asswipe, Iowa, but arrest!?$250.00 fine maybe. Can you imagine the judge and prosecution going through the whole rigger-ma-role in court and trying to keep a straight face? It'll cost the county $5,000.00 to try this woman and no they won't recoup the money. All for a book.
