Jan 18th 2009 12:08PM Well, I hate my bank. They have really hurt me with overdraft fees. Still, I'd probably give back all but the actual deposit--plus maybe $2K or so--because of their viciousness. It still isn't my money, no matter what, but I'm surprised the bank could even file charges on their error. I am sure their is a legal precedent on this. It's like, someone said, entrapment. Like a cop dressing as a prostitute to lure in johns, then trying to arrest them. It is illegal to conspire or make a crime to catch a criminal. I'd like to know what bank it was, so I can send some eMail and encourage boycotts--that'll put the fear of God in 'em. They need to learn WHERE their money comes from--their depositors.
Dec 21st 2008 10:13AM Ha. Ha!! Tise laws are probably no longer enforced (enforcable) But in the US, it is not Technically illegal to photograph cops in action, so long as you don't get in the way, but some innocent teenage photographer was pepper-sprayed by one. I guess: use a telephoto lens! Also, a stupid law in Switzerland: making your own fireworks at home is BIG-time prison sentence--and yet, they and Germany produce most of the world's black gunpowder! Guess they don't want competition! Also, you may go as fast as you want on Germany's AutoBahn, but don't even give the "Okay" sign to another driver--it is considered rude there, and will get you a ticket--! How rude were the Nazis-??!!
