This article and thread are very misleading in my opinion. These are not technical laws as stated. For example, the woman that was bruised by police
for not picking up dog poop? My guess is that she became acting erratic and possibly violent when police confronted her. (non-removal of dog poop is
a fine in most states, leading to possible jail time if multiple fines are issued -- think: littering.)
When she used her feet to try to prevent them from closing the patrol car door to secure her, she says, the beating began.
Court papers indicate police accused Stanczyk of causing a ruckus by yelling at the officers to leave her alone. They also said she locked her
hands in front of her to avoid arrest.
The case was adjourned until May, when it will be dismissed as long as she stays out of trouble.
Regarding the 12-year-old boy that opened his present early? Blame his parents, not the cops.:
He was charged with petty larceny and his mom insisted police take him away.
How about the boy that farted in class?
According to the report, the incident occurred Nov. 4, when the 13-year-old boy “continually disrupted his classroom environment” by
purposely breaking wind. He then shut off some computers other students were using.
He was causing a disruption to the class using various methods to prevent the other students from being able to participate in class that day,
including but not limited to passing gas.
Now, there are certainly stupid laws in this country, but I do not believe this particular article is an example of that at all. Just my opinion.
As for some stupid laws, here are a few of my favorites:
It is illegal to wear a bullet-proof vest while committing a murder.
All motorists must honk before passing another car, bicyclist, skater, and even a skateboarder.
It is against the law for a man to knit during the fishing season.
If you have been convicted of driving while intoxicated, you may never again apply for personalized license plates.
You may not slurp your soup.
Not only is it illegal to have sex with the lights on, one may not have sex in any position other than missionary.
Children are not to go trick-or-treating on Halloween.
It is illegal to tickle women.
