No, he would have had a torch. I think it's the gays that get stoned in the bible.

Disobeyed a lawful order; all officers go home safe.

Sorry, that was a very indirect Monty Python reference.

V: So, why do witches burn?
(long pause)
P2: Cuz they're made of... wood?
V: Gooood.
(crowd congratulates P2)
V: So, how do we tell if she is made of wood?
P1: Build a bridge out of her!
V: Ahh, but can you not also make bridges out of stone?
P1: Oh yeah...
V: Does wood sink in water?
P1: No
P3: No. It floats!
P1: Let's throw her into the bog! (yeah yeah ya!)
V: What also floats in water?
P1: Bread
P3: Apples
P2: Very small rocks
(V looks annoyed)
P1: Cider
P3: Grape gravy
P1: Cherries
P3: Mud
King: A Duck!
(all look and stare at king)
]V: Exactly! So, logically...
P1(thinking): If she ways the same as a duck... she's made of wood!
V: And therefore,
(pause & think)
P3: A witch! (P1: a witch)(P2: a witch)(all: a witch!)
V: We shall use my largest scales.
(V jumps down)

(walk over while cheering)
(push her into scale)
V: Right, remove the stops!
(wait while scales remains still)
All: A witch! burn her burn her!!

That doesn't make it even slightly OK, but assuming that's a more accurate depiction of the facts the difference between them being able to instantaneously steal the stored value on prepaid cards and being able to instantaneously steal all the money from your checking or savings account is not an unimportant difference.

But don't the poorz rely on pre-paid cards?  Everything from paychecks to tax refunds and everything in between gets put on them

So talking about the poorz and these cards...

Our entire payroll process is electronic. Most folks get direct deposit and then you can log onto our payroll site and print your pay stub if you want. The super poorz, like my dishwashers, housekeeping, environmental services, etc., before this process would take their cheques and go to a cheque cashing joint (which would rip them off.) When we made the change these folks were issued an MC debit card our payroll system loads up with their pay. I imagine many places are doing this so this will certainly hit the poorz harder.

Also, let's face it, the asset forfeiture policies get enacted in a very racist way. Do we really think that someone like me is going to get pulled over in his nice ride, looking all middle aged, and white, and respectable, and that a cop is going to try and bulldoze me? Not a chance. It's going to be disproportionately worked out on blacks, hispanics, and Dewey Crowes.

There's some anger about this one around here. Normally cops are dicks, but I'll allow this one

You don't get to bite and choke a cop and not risk getting kicked in the head by his partner (mid-choke no less).

The, "All you bitches are dead" was not good either. It's going to be a long, hot summer.
