Interfering with the police when they are trying to save a 12-year-old girl…

July 19th, 2008

…does not make you a hero:

“The lead detective said to me that they need to take the public computers and I said `OK, sildenafil hospital show me your warrant and that will be that, generic viagra ‘” said Flint, 56. “He did say he didn’t need any paper. I said `You do.’ He said `I’m just trying to save a 12-year-old girl,’ and I told him `Show me the paper.'”

A couple of thoughts:

1.) As far as I’m concerned, public libraries are public places (it even says so in their names) and what you borrow from them and what you do on their computers is not private.

2.) The only people who could get in trouble for what was on those computers would be people who were using them to commit illegal acts. If you’re purveying child porn, or planning a bombing, or running an email scam, I won’t lose any sleep over you getting caught up in a sweep for a missing kid.
