The latest in an on-going effort to indoctrinate young Americans at an earlier age into fearing police takes us to Freeport, Pennsylvania where apparently forgetting to turn in your library books warrants a knock on the door of your home by the police. Four-year-old criminal and professional thief Katelyn Jageman racked up a whopping fine of $81.60 after forgetting to turn in “Sleeping Beauty,” “Corduroy’s Halloween,” “Dora The Explorer: The Halloween Cat,” and “I See The Moon.”

I have a question for the mods, can simple silence, or lack of words count? because I honestly don't know what to say about this. The whole issues with police doing... ridiculous things at this level... is amusing, yet maddening at the same time. But least im not surprised by stuff like this anymore.

With that said, I'll just leave others to openly comment on this.

Shouldn't this just be a civil case and not criminal. Isn't it just breaking a contract?

It is a private library, I don't know.

I guess it'd be a similar situation to renting a TV and never returning it.

Is this still America?? A poor 4 year old gets a visit for overdue books by the police!! I figure that Library will close down when the public finds out what they did. How stupid!! You have done a great job on finding information about police abuse cases!! Keep it up!

Telephone call to alert parents of overdue books = pennies
Police call to do same = $$$$$

... and we wonder why our society is going broke.

So is that now going to follow on her record for the rest of the poor kids life?

WOW....

The world we live in...

I say give back the books. I bet you made the 4 year old cry now.

Yuh, for 81 bucks they could just spent less than $20 on EBAY for them.

I wasn't aware that the police could be used for debt collection purposes. Is this even legal??

Wait...do you realize what you just said?
"She wasn't charged with anything."
Nothing against you, but what kind of mindset is being displayed in that video?
Why on Earth would she even be close to being "charged"?



This is absurd and a great way to fire me up in the morning.
Terrible story, idiotic police work and stupid people.

Any policeman/woman who actually thought this was a valid crime is truly a idiot.

Shame on them for wasting tax money.
