Right?! How unfair! The exact same thing happened to a friend of mine. He "plugged in" to his girlfriend without her permission and got arrested for rape! What is this world comming to?!

Is there "signage" in the classrooms saying "please don't pee on the teacher"? It's a question of common sense. If a human being would use "there was no sign saying I can't charge my car here" as an excuse, then that human being should not have the privledge of driving an automobile. I say slap the arrogant ahole with the maximum fine allowable by law, and laugh at him while you do it. And then do it again.

You ALL should read the full article at http://www.11alive.com/rss/article/314666/3/E... :

"The officer's initial incident report gives a good indication of how difficult and argumentative the individual was to deal with. He made no attempt to apologize or simply say oops and he wouldn't do it again. Instead he continued being argumentative, acknowledged he did not have permission and then accused the officer of having damaged his car door. The officer told him that was not true and that the vehicle and existing damage was already on his vehicles video camera from when he drove up."
...

"Sgt Ford was further advised that Mr. Kamooneh had previously been advised he was not allowed on the school tennis courts without permission from the school . This was apparently due to his interfering with the use of the tennis courts previously during school hours."

Apparently, this guy is a jerk, and his behavior has caught up with him.

Literally, no. People put fences up. Asking pedestrians to not trample the vegetation is different than using resources the school pays for, the electricity is not free. It would be no different if I needed printer paper, went to the school and took some. Do they need a sign for that or would common sense dictate it would be inappropriate to take it, even if my taxes did pay for it.

You are comparing apples to oranges.

It would be no different only if the paper was stacked up on the sidewalk next to a public street.

But as to your absurd question, I'd let him have a buck's worth.
Also, it might be educational for you to buy a book about puns.
The only absurd question is the one not asked...

Now you know what you can do with your book of puns now don't ya Larry and I'm not talking about you putting it in your Fiat's tail pipe.

He was at his kids game... what if it was his cell phone? if he needed it to get home what's the big deal. The school should have had a lock on the damn thing. There are locks on the ones at the park. just saying.

Brilliant!
.
From now on; every electric outlet on the planet that is off limits to electric cars must bear a powder-coated metal placard with two chrome-headed metric bolts that reads in 6" tall letters:
.
'No Electric Car Charging - No Carga del coche eléctrico - &#27809;&#26377;&# 30005;&#21160;&#36710; &#20805;&#30005;'

I don't think anyone noticed this.
I found it funny.
You changed my opinion about the situation.
LOL, am embarrassed to admit that.

OH!

Well then, that is a horse of a different color.

CNN sided with the jerk tonight. Not a big surprise. Liberals wouldn't know a thief or trespasser if they fell over one.

Self-important fucktards like this mope really irritate me. There's no excuse for his presumptuous behavior and hubris, and no extenuating circumstances. Just b/c you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD. A real gentleman never takes advantage; and never acts like a jerk when he is called out for a faux pas. He didn't have to argue and probably wouldn't have gone to jail if he was contrite. Sure cops can be bullies sometime. But you have a better chance of enjoying the positive end of 'officer discretion' if you act like a man instead of employing animal instincts and circular logic.

This is a growing problem in America. More people are swallowing the Obama administration's socialist agendas, and look what's its doing to this country, tearing it apart, bit by bit, person by person.

I was an Obama supporter. I have smartened up the last year, however.

So you're the newest idiot on the block. Your fellow quadrupeds bid you welcome!
First of all, your assertion of having supported Obama is almost certainly bullshit, and will fool no one who walks upright.

Secondly, tell us what kinds of "socialism" Obama has brought to his administration. Topix has a great many bonebrains like you, who could't define socialism even with a dictionary in front of them.

I am, and continue to be, an ardent Obama supporter, and I'm determined to pin your ideological ears back.
