I can't figure out just how some LEOs can expect to ever be taken seriously when they get involved in things like this!
I think I would have known from the start that this was a no win situation! Granny has the age thing going for her, plus she is in a small town where she is probably known and liked by everyone!
What do you think is going to happen? Let's see!
Woman accused of stealing pickle demands trial
EMORY, TX (KTRK) -- A Texas woman went on trial yesterday for stealing a pickle.
Police in the town of Emory say they caught 71-year-old Barbara Ann Alaman stealing a single pickle. She was charged with theft and demanded a trial.
"I think they should spend taxpayer money on criminals that are more threatening," said one resident.
"I just wonder how many times she did it and got away with it. I think it's kind of ridiculous to prosecute her for stealing a pickle," another resident said.
When the trial began yesterday, it quickly ended in a mistrial because the judge didn't think she'd get a fair trial in the small town where everyone knows who she is.
After the court proceedings, the woman told a news crew she doesn't even like pickles.
I'm sorry, but I couldn't help but grin when I read this story! With all that's going on in the world, when the mainstream media thinks that this is the best they can do in the reporting of "news" we are all in trouble!
Still, we all need a grin once in a while...and this story may just provide that needed grin, ya know?
Let's take our coffee out to the patio. Hot and dry outside today!
