Couple could be jailed for lost library book | New York Post

Couple could be jailed for lost library book

TECUMSEH, Mich. — A judge told a Michigan couple they could land in jail for up to 93 days and face a maximum $500 fine for failing to return a novel and a Dr. Seuss book borrowed from the local public library.

Cathy and Melvin Duren of Tecumseh, Michigan, appeared in Lenawee County court on Thursday to each face a misdemeanor charge of failure to return rental property. They owe about $35 in late fees for “The Rome Prophecy,” borrowed in April 2015. They lost a Dr. Seuss book their teenage son borrowed for their granddaughter in July 2014.

“I can’t image going to jail over it, but I certainly will fight these charges because I’m not guilty,” Cathy Duren said.

Although the couple admitted they were negligent in returning the books, they think it’s unfair to each be charged a $105 “diversion fee” to the Lenawee County Economic Crimes Unit in addition to fines owed to the Tecumseh Public Library, WXYZ-TV reported.

The Durens had to pay $100 bond to avoid going to jail last Friday when they were served with arrest warrants.

The couple said they probably will never check out a library book again.
Why should the cops and the federal bureaucracies have a monopoly on the paramilitary fun?

Enforce silence gets an entirely new dimension...

By the by - you'll be happy to hear that you're participating and promoting a "norm of silence" and thus suppressing "legitimate cultural expressions". Recently, gangs of "refugee children" have started invading public libraries here, running around, talking, shouting, even playing music, dealing drugs and trying to steal from other library patrons. When people complained about it, the County Head Librarian, a Green local politician, wrote an article denouncing the complainers in the terms quoted above.

We just reopened our teen room to "accommodate" the rambunctious youngsters and their " running around, talking, shouting, even playing music," which, rather oddly has lead to "dealing drugs and trying to steal from other library patrons." Thankfully they decided to crack down rather than crack up and perhaps things will improve.

Not yet at least Although our bathrooms are going gender neutral soon. Given that we have had problems with certain members of the public fondling the statuary that should be fun. Can't wait for the first complaint.

Actually no they're not - even in the most liberal places you or I still will get arrested if we go in the ladies' room.

We shall see. Although I don't plan on being a test case. I do believe they already had something to this effect somewhere and the guy stood on his "new" right to choose his bathroom and they had to let him.
