    This goes to show you that the REAL danger to the general population are lawyers and stupid judges who's inflated egoes will not allow them to admit that they don't know their butt from a hole in the ground when applicable.

    Just watch Judge Judy and you'll know what I mean.

    I mean, if that lady had one more brain cell, she'd have one brain cell!

    I don't know which disturbs me more: That this could really have happened to Ozzy, and people are treating it like a joke, or that it is a joke, and the American judicial system, especially in small towns, is so screwed up that it is entirely plausible.

    I have only just noticed this thread. Ozzy, you my sympathy. Its a real shame when people in the legal profession twist the law for 'winning' arguments or getting their own way. Shame on them. Words simply cannot express what you must be feeling..

    Who cares if this is a joke. If it is, we don't lose anything... we just gain the faith that this possibly might not happen in a real court. The only way this could hurt us as a joke is if he didn't tell us later and we stayed paranoid about our collections' safety. Better to just give Ozzy some support and not worry about it.

    Thanks, endparenthesis, that's a nice way to put an end to the "it's a joke" thing. If it is, then tomorrow we can look silly, since it doesn't look like a joke, let's move on and see what we can do to help the situation.
    Well, Ozzy, you know that any one of us here will help you out in any way that we can- now if only one of us was a lawyer... Wait.. Then we'd need to put up with a lawyer- if only one of us had a relative that was a lawyer. Be kinda like "My Cousin Vinny"... In any case, good luck Ozzy, I hope that going to the papers helps. At least you can always put some of the newspapers with the story in 'em up for aution in the next NASC auction. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
    In any case, I think it's definitly time to get a lawyer, at leastyou can have someone behind you shouting "I object, your honor". :-\ We can always start a "Save Ozzy, help hmi get a lawyer" fund if there are monetary issues, I know I'd be happy to help you as I really hate seeing an upstanding citizen pushed around in court. Well, best of luck.

    In solidarity with Ozzy, I post these inspirational lyrics.

    "God has smiled upon you this day
    The fate of a nation in your hands
    And blessed be the children who fight with all our bravery
    'Til only the righteous stand

    You see the distant flames
    They bellow in the night
    You fight in all our names for what we know is right
    And when you all get shot
    And cannot carry on
    Though you die, La Resistance lives on

    You may get stabbed in the head
    With a dagger or a sword
    You may be burned to death
    Or skinned alive, or worse
    But when they torture you
    You will not feel the need to run
    For, though you die, La Resistance lives on."

    Viva La Resistance!

    They should make people pass an insanity test before they become a judge.
