we had to pay $40 for our locers and SBA dues for 3 years.  I think we have to pay for the locer every year though.  I think the 1ls got the bad lockers.  We are crammed in a corner were we have to fight for them.

The rep said they can monitor from their servers everything you print on the dedicated printers, and if you print out unusually large amounts it puts up a flag.

I did something sort of like that in undergrad. I printed out over a thousand pages of journal articles because I didn't feel like sitting in the library researching and reading  all that stuff on a computer screen. I printed Any article that looked even remotely related to what I was looking for. They were pissed, but printing was free at my school, so I told them to bite me. The worst part is I only read maybe twenty percent.

Think of the trees man, THE TREES!  ;)

i am actually sure that it is my right to have a jury trial. maybe in some states you don't necessarily get a jury trial on all misdemeanor charges, but my lawyer said that in new hampshire you do get the right to an automatic jury trial on misdemeanors or felonies.

also, i agree with you that the resisting arrest is no big deal, and i will plead guilty to it, if i can reach a reasonable agreement. if the prosecutor is going to try to get jail time out of it, i am going to simply leave the state. i think that we will reach an agreement, but i was arrested in may, and now there is still no resolution.

whether all people are innocent or not is more than a yes no question. obviously, i may be guilty of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest according to the law. i think the disorderly conduct is an easier case to make than the resisting arrest, but even if i am legally guilty, i do not feel guilty about them. i feel no guilt, and therefore i feel no responsibilty to "own up" as some of you have suggested i should do.

as for serial killers who do not feel guilt for their actions, i believe that they should do their best to avoid facing the law for their actions. the system is too restrictive as it is, so i am in favor of anyone who is guilty and does not want to go to jail, for them to try not to go to jail no matter what their crime. even if they do feel guilt, i think they should live their lives free of the american justice system, as i do not believe that the people in power hold any real authority to place other human beings in jail.

Seriously, is there even any point in trying to wrap your head around this notion?  I make a motion to everyone to cease posting on the thread because on the grounds that this is sheer lunacy.

maybe if you were more "a product of the system"  you wouldn't have two misdemeanors and be facing jail time now huh?  Maybe it's time for a life reevaluation at this point.

oh and one more thing to think about:

section 242.8 of the model penal code:
A person set at liberty by court order, with or without bail, upon condition that he will subsequesntly appear at a specified time and place, commits a misdemeanor if, without lawful excuse, he fails to appear at the time and place.  The offense constitutes a felony of the third degree where the required appearance was to answer to a charge of felony, or for disposition of any such charge.....

So if you do get caught, on top of the jail time you were facing, you'll probably be facing even more jail time, so if it's worth it smart guy, go for it.

oh and don't forget that prosecutors aren't in the business to proceed to trial if they don't in most cases have a rock solid case, considering the conviction rate for most felonies is what, around 3 to 1, don't know the exact numbers for misdemeanors but it is probably at least that if not higher.  Jacy, it's always easier to blame someone else for your fuckups than to take responsiblity for your own actions, and I'm pretty sure that this little jackass hoesn't know the meaning of responsibility.  If being a product of the system means having a respect for the rule of law and other people, well by god I guess I am, but then again I believe the people with his view of the world are in a minority or this would be a nation of anarchy.

Our Westlaw rep said they caught some guy trying to print the entire S.W. reporter so he wouldn't have to pay for it when he got out.

LOL. Funniest thing ever. Seriously, thinking of someone actually trying to do that…People are so d**mn hilarious.

But, now that I think about it, is there any reason one wouldn’t be allowed to do something like this? How did they catch the guy? Did they try to stop him? Are there Westlaw reps that monitor how I use their services? If so, that’s kinda Creepy.

probably the library noticed how much printing he was doing, but maybe not since at our school, lexis and westlaw have their own printers, unless you email it to yourself and print it out that way.

How does facing the fact that you f**cked up and resisted arrest make you a "product of the system"?

Sounds like a lame excuse to me, and the more you repeat it, the more obvious it is that you're trying to cover the fact that you're too much of a coward to face the consequences of your actions, whatever they may be.

I think he was referring to me as "product of the system" Jacy.  He is just someone who can't take responsability for his own actions and wants to take the easy way out, enough said.  With, that, it's back to contracts for me, this thread is played out I believe.

who's crying?  I just think you are a piece of *&^%, and if what you say is true, you need to swallow your medicine and take it like a man, otherwise you are just that, a piece of *&^%.
