      Haha. No

      i was having a mental breakdown caused by being high I guess and I thought it would be a good idea to jump a 10 ft high fence onto a Marine base (since I used to be a marine) to get help.
      they didn’t help me, just made it worse. I seen an opening for escape and I took it. Unfortunately I was caught.

        My only brush with the legal system have been summonses to serve on a jury. The first time I was selected and had to hear a DUI case (guilty). The second time I was not selected. The case was against a man who broke into his ex-wife's house and started chasing her around with a hammer. He had already been ordered not to come into contact with her and then assaulted her in front of their 8 or 10 year old son. She escaped long enough to make it to the neighbor's house and get help, her deranged ex chasing her across the lawn.

        The ex-wife and her son were both in the courtroom during the jury selection process. Very sad; the boy starting crying uncontrollably as the prosecution described the nature of his dad's crimes. He had to be led out of the room by his grandparents, I guess it was.

        Anyway, dude was found guilty on all charges including attempted murder and was given 40 years in prison. Kind of sorry I wasn't on that one, but Kentucky only pays $7 per day (I think it was) so it was for the best.

          Several times. Most of which I was not the defendant.

              Spent all of last year in front of the courts because some dimwit wanted money.
              Court is better spent when you have actually been charged with something.

              Small spats should not need court action. Especially if they are on online forums

                  I haven't, but I mostly attribute that to being a white kid from the suburbs and knowing enough to ask to see a warrant.

                  Seriously, I'm pretty sure that a shitface drunk 20 year old of any other skin colour telling the police (rather aggressively) to come back with a warrant would have been treated much differently than I was. I lived in a very white, very affluent city, and the cops were as shitty as you'd expect.

                    my mother was in prison for a couple of weeks while pregnant with me : )
                    protesting about nuclear weapons and damaged a fence at a military base, if i remember correctly. my pre-birth memory is a little hazy.

                      What a strong, determined your mother must be! What a fun birth story. 👍
