    The Judge is a Dem. That doesn't make ALL of Texas stupid.

    And they're running a budget surplus by the way.

    Wait...

    Deciding whether to lock someone up should depend on the cost? Or should it depend on the law?

    Also, have you done any such analysis of the cost of jailing -- in federal prison -- those who refuse to pay the health care tax for not having coverage?

    From link:


    This should be a civil issue. The problem is fixed with equity. There's no violence involved. The kid should make up or fix the grafitti and do tons of community service. This judge should be defrocked.

    I have no use for grafitti "artists" but eight years is a bit extreme.

    Have the kid give up a few months of weekends doing community service and be done with it.

    Woman calls 911 when husband refuses to eat dinner

    Dec 23, 9:10 PM (ET)


    KERRVILLE, Texas (AP) - Prosecutors will review the case of a woman authorities claim has called 911 30 times over six months for non-emergency reasons, including a call to complain that her husband refused to eat his dinner. Last Friday, the woman allegedly made a pair of calls to 911, including a hang-up and another where a woman was heard screaming.

    Police were dispatched to the residence and officer Paul Gonzales said police were told by her that "her husband did not want to eat his supper." A police report said the 53-year-old woman was also yelling "about things that happened two weeks ago."

    The woman now faces charges of 911 abuse.

    I put Texans on par with the people of Afghanistan - both groups are still in the "stone-age".
