Our neighbor is on the city council meeting and is bringing this up at the next council meeting. Should not have gone in her house if she did it was not a felony. It was $20 . & she paid for them. Say she was mentally ill for that many newspapers
The reason I related this story to the Patriot Act is because it has widened the scope of police powers, allowing a search like this to occur without fear of legal repurcussions. :horse:I'm not so sure this had anything to do with the Patriot Act, maybe bored cops and a nosy person....but the Patriot Act sucks a big one anyway. The story just seems weird.
Ssssh! They've already mention that...look up Cass Sustein(sp?).....& what he believes...he's not the only kook within the administration trying to figure out ways how to reduce our population. (not trying to hijack your thread or turn it into something political)Big Brother is getting way too BIG. Imagine being told that you can't buy 20 newspapers because it's too many. What's next? Telling us how many kids we can have?
I get my papers at the convenience store & I always have to check inside of them first, b/c there are some that won't have the inserts when they'r suppose to.All I want is one paper, for the coupons. However, I keep getting the paper and find out the coupons have been stolen out.It gets old. I might try to lift a candy bar to make myself feel better.
Now that you mentioned that, I remember helping with my parents' paper route & we had to do the same thing - it was a pain in the butt.Newspaper distributers don't necessarily get enough inserts to match the number of newspapers they get. My little brothers delivered papers and every sunday morning they had to put the ads in the newspapers themselves because they just kind of threw the lot at them and told them to sort it. Sometimes they ran out. Sometimes they had extra. If the newspaper doesn't have enough inserts for every single paper, subscribers get them first and they'll leave them out of some of the newstand papers. Do'nt assume your inserts are being stolen just because they're not there.
