    She could have responded to the letters and phone calls from the library.
    But arresting her? That`s a bit harsh.

    So lazy, didn`t want to fork over 28 bucks and then she had to pay 171, thats what you get.

    That being said, i have a $1000 fine on my library. Borrowed chicken run, swore i put it in the bin of returnable things, someone took it, a dollar a day you dont return the book. I dont come to my library often so when I did, they said i owed them 400 bucks. Never going there again.

    At a certain point it becomes theft. Before I read any of the comments posted here, let me guess...


    "THIS IS BULLpoo! COPS ARE dratING STUPID! THAT LIBRARY IS GAY! YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO WHATEVER THE drat YOU WANT AND TAKE WHATEVER YOU WANT WHENEVER YOU WANT!"

    Am I right? Right? drat the government right? Anarchy forever right? That`s the rule of IAB right? Whoever is getting in trouble in a video is a drating hero because being in high school and disobeying rules are the two raddest and coolest things ever.

    I think this was fair enough, They gave her ample chances to sort it out. She just seemed like she didn`t really care, so whilst it was a bit `over the top` it got the required results.

    Libraries are just beefing up, they`re trying to fight the video game industry.

    I don`t know how that makes them arrest you for not returning a book though... >_>

    hmm. so i don`t have sound. but by the looks of it. she more or less stole books from the library. i`d arrest someone for stealing my books. i don`t see why they can`t arrest.

    does it make sense to do something that stupid. not really but that`s ok.

    i agree with opie about libraries fighting the vidjamagames. though there is a place for libraries. as even though i`m a `hardcore gamer` i still enjoy a good book. as i would assume many other gamers do+

    Yeah. Arresting her was not out of line. Forgetting is fine, but when they send her all those notices she`s obviously ignoring them. And she says she forgot about the court date they sent her? Yeah right. She ignored it and obviously intended to steal so she faces the punishment.

    um...yeah...I`m amazed at the number of people who seem to think the library had her arrested. That`s pretty dumb.

    A judge had her arrested after she blew off a court appearance. It had less to do with library books and more to do with failure to appear. Last I checked, judges take that sort of thing pretty seriously.

    Anyway...she ignored several notices and a court order. Basically, she stole the books and she got exactly what she deserved.

    The news report is false. She wasn`t arrested for not returning library books. She was arrested for not appearing in court, violating a court order. If you look at one of the FOUR official notices she received (shown on the news report) it states that she has been fined $171 dollars. When you get a fine, you either pay it by mail, or you appear in court to contest the charges. She did neither. The charge is contempt of court. It`s just like paying a traffic ticket. If you don`t pay it, there is a warrant out for your arrest. This news report is such crap

    Okay so this is the system we have in place. She was (apparently) given plenty of notice, repeatedly, and when she didn`t respond, it was given to someone who could do something about it, and so they did. She wasn`t responsible, and this is the consequence.

    Kinda duh-duh when you think about it, how people would be amazed or shocked by this shows that they aren`t really paying attention.

    man, if my library had this rule when i was an irresponsible youngster, my rapsheet would be as long as...well, it would be pretty long
    *fail*
    anyway, i don`t feel any sympathy for her
    is it really that hard to take ten minutes out of your day to return two books?

    My father is a library director and I have to say that I am in full agreement with the library in this case. The library goes through the trouble of providing information for free as well as free use of its computers and internet. It doesn`t have to cost anything but inevitably, people want to have their cake and eat it, too. My dad`s library has roughly $30,000 in outstanding fines, a significant fraction of their budget. That`s about a dollar for every patron they serve. Bottom line is you are entering an unspoken commitment to return whatever you check out within a reasonable amount of time, and agree to pay any dues (which are wholly optional) that you incur for keeping it past the unspoken contract time. We`re not *giving* it to you, we`re *loaning* it to you, so be responsible and turn the items in on time. If you can`t do that, we reserve the right to call upon the district attorney.
