    He paid his ticket in pennies- the court got even

    A man ticketed for speeding thought he'd get even by paying his fine with 12,000 pennies.

    But the judge had the final word by making him wait for the change to be counted.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    This goes to show that justice may be blind and impartial, but she doesn't have a sense of humor. Or at least those who are stewards of this justice.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
