Octogenarian arrested!

I just read here that an octogenarian, Edna Jester was arrested in the United States for taking a teenage neighbour's football! Hmm! This ball was not just "taken", the teenage played (throwed) the ball into the old woman's yard!


Now for "taking" the ball Edna Jester was arrested for "petty theft".

She is to appear in Court on the 12th of November, 2008.

My questions:
1. Would it amount to "theft" if I seize a football thrown into my compound by some kids?
2. If there was a damage who would be responsible for that reckless act?

Read the full gist here.

i guess the old woman must have been telling them not to play the ball near her house..if dats the case .the football people dont wanna live long..simple as that.
even the police said the dont want to arrest her ..but the football mother said they must arrest her...
this is not theft jo..just some stupid people whose brain has been clogged by the "civilization" around

When people have nothing to worry about, they start to make up things.

In 9ja here, we have to many issues; form power supply problems, to bad roads... Who will actually care if someone took a ball.

Dee! said...

RAYO: Yes o! "u wan seize d bal die" for 9ja! For where?

OLUWADEE: We sure have many issues to worry about here.

The law is an ass especially in the litigation-hungry US of A. They should just let her spend her remaining years in peace...

This is too hilarious, it has been quite a bid story on the news here. Americans are reacting the way we all are though, they think it is stupid too. Especially as it wasn't the first time it had happened and she had warned the boy several times to stop. People really need to parent their kids better.
