The Irony of it All

Tuesday, 23 January 2007

I love this country…and for so many reasons. Here is just one example:

At some point in the not so distant past, I was the victim of a crime. A minor crime. Some goniff stole the registration sticker from my rear license plate and the very nice Highway Patrolman brought it to my attention. All I needed to do was get a replacement sticker, have a police officer verify that I had placed it on my license plate, and send it back to the courthouse — accompanied by a $10.00 processing fee, of course. Not too bad. Of course, that did not take into account the $15 fee that the police station charged as a verification fee. So — being a victim cost me $25.00.

And if they were to catch the guy and he was unable to afford a lawyer, my tax money would provide him with legal representation.

And that, my friends, is just one of the things that I love about this country!!

    I’m not sure where the complaint is in here. What should be done differently?
