BUSTED!! For possession of a "Sharpie"...

Found at The Smoking Gun via Moonbattery:

DECEMBER 22--A 13-year-old boy was arrested Friday for using a permanent marker while in class at his Oklahoma City middle school, a violation of an obscure city ordinance.

According to an Oklahoma City Police Department report, the boy was spotted “in possession of a permanent marker” by Roosevelt Middle School teacher DeLynn Woodside. The 50-year-old educator told cop Miguel Campos that the student was “writing on a piece of paper, which caused it to bleed over onto the desk.”

Woodside reported that the child, whose name was redacted by police from the report, attempted to hide the marker when she asked him for it. Strangely, Woodside’s Facebook page reveals that her “likes and interests” include the official “Sharpie Permanent Markers” page on Facebook.

Campos reported that he allowed Woodside, a seventh grade math teacher, to “sign a citation” against the boy, who was then transported to the Community Intervention Center, a juvenile holding facility. A police sergeant subsequently “booked the marker into the property room.”

A police spokesman referred to the student’s bust as a “citizen’s arrest” effectuated by Woodside.

The marker ban--which apparently is aimed at curbing graffiti--stems from a city ordinance making it illegal to possess spray paint or a permanent marker on private property (without the owner’s permission).

(End of story. My comments follow.)

I guess when Sharpies are outlawed only outlaws will have Sharpies.

There used to be a time when the officer was allowed to use some discretion in various situations. One can choose to enforce the "Letter of the Law" or the Spirit of the Law". In most cases I chose the enforce the "Spirit of the Law", unless there was some real ball bust'n asshole that really busted my balls to the point that if he was doing 56 mph in a 55 mph zone, he got to sit in my office with a complimentary set of bracelets on!

In this situation, unless the ASSHOLE school teacher absolutely, unwareingly INSISTED (as the complainant) that the 13 year old be arrested under this archaic law, and I couldn't talk reason to him, I would, as required by the CPL (Criminal Procedure Law), arrest him. Otherwise, I'd have told this idiot teacher to go have sexual intercourse with himself and to stick his complaint up his posterior sphincter muscle.

Just say'n....

The Watcher, THAT would be using common sense. These days it ain't so common.

Cookie, I doubt the cops had any choice. Temember that this took place in the People's Republic of Taxachusetts.

What to say?

At a private school where I worked for nearly two decades, we discouraged students from damaging their desks. But never, never, did we call the police is a student damaged a desk.

Do you ever have the feeling that the world has gone mad?

Subvet said...

AOW, thats the real kicker. Calling a cop in for what seems to be accidently marking up a desk. Gimme a break, how many desks get trashed in any school district during the course of a year?

wow. you'd think that our public employees would have better uses for their time.

Subvet said...

Blue, evidently not.
