This has got to be one of the dumbest criminal cases I have ever heard of. The Palm Beach Post reports that a kid in the Florida panhandle needed to fix his bike, but he had no tools. So, he thought he’d go to his local Sears store to use some tools there. A clerk saw him, told him to leave, but the kid was so desperate to fix his bike, he returned a bit later to finish the repairs. Can you believe the store clerk called the cops and the kid got charged with theft, trespassing, and resisting an officer without violence? Ok, I agree with the store that the kid shouldn’t have been using the Sears tools department for his personal garage, but does that mean he deserved to be charged with 3 crimes? This case is as bad as the cases I saw in Broward where the homeless people were actually arrested and brought to jail for being in possession of a stolen milk crate. (I am not kidding, folks). All I can say is that things must be really slow in the Florida panhandle! Let’s hope a criminal defense attorney up there can step in and get those charges dismissed ASAP.
