Better return those library books

How do you explain this one to your kids?
Woman cuffed, booked for not paying library fines

GRAFTON, Wis. - A Wisconsin woman has been arrested and booked for failing to pay her library fines.

Twenty-year-old Heidi Dalibor told the News Graphic in Cedarburg that she ignored the library's calls and letters as well as a notice to appear in court.

Still, she was surprised when officers with a warrant knocked on her door, cuffed her and took her to the police station to be fingerprinted and photographed.

Police Capt. Joe Gabrish says officers follow the same procedure with every warrant.

Library director John Hanson says a couple of dozen people are cited each year for failure to return materials or pay fines.

The incident cost Dalibor about $30 for the two overdue paperbacks. It cost her mother $172 to free her.

And then you have all the government overhead costs to do everything. I wonder how much the police dept paid out in total burdened labor costs just to pick her up. Wow!

Ok, I'm not laughing at that woman, but that was funny. Oh and if I was that mom? $172? Nope. Follow the rules honey.
