He told us that he couldn't guarantee that he could do anything since it was the middle of the night (9:45), so what is the point of being a 24 hour bond service?Nor was I informed that i needed to call after a certain time to make sure he was actually at the office since they do apparently close at a certain time despite the "24 hour" claim I thankfully don't have to deal with bonding people out of jail ever, just this first and hopefully last time, but this place was definitely of very little help and not very informative after I explained that I have not ever done anything like this. I understand the circumstance and that the person in jail did wrong, but you would think that if you are running a business you would attempt to be just a little bit more helpful, after all, I am a potential customer, not the offender!

He seriously just walked right up to the front door.

Sheriff Grady Judd, Polk County Schools Superintendent Jacqueline M. Byrd, and Polk County’s Police Chiefs announced last Friday a plan to provide all Polk County Public Schools (including charter schools) with armed law enforcement officers—sheriff’s deputies and police officers—through the end of the school year (through Thursday of this week). That required deputies and police officers to station an additional 106 law enforcement officers at our schools. Here are just a few photos of deputies in schools this week.

“With the terrible tragedy that happened in Santa Fe, Texas, last week, our local school leadership and our local law enforcement leadership came together to make sure our kids would be safe through the end of the school year. Next year, armed guardians will be at all our public schools starting in the fall.” –Grady Judd, Sheriff

Hey, would-be shoplifters…Lowe’s is fighting back against your criminal shenanigans. They’re tired of people coming in and taking their stuff without paying. Here’s a tale of two dudes: Guy and Man (actually, his name is Manuel, but Guy and Man make this story even better). Guy and Man were both arrested on May 22nd at the same Lowe’s, about five hours apart.

First, we have Guy, who was already on probation for possession of drug paraphernalia. Guy was seen concealing two flashlights and a headlamp in his britches, before shuffling out the exit. Shoplifter was LIT, yo! Couldn’t resist.

Guy was arrested, and he apologized for taking the items, which is cool…he at least has some manners. You know what else he had? Meth. And a glass pipe. Know what else he has now? A theft charge, drug and paraphernalia charges, and a violation of probation. All of that for $59.91 worth of illuminative devices. Guy told the detective that he took them because he needed to steal them to get money for food. Jobs and government assistance seem like the better option to us.

Let’s turn our attention to the other Guy…er, Man.

Man went into Lowe’s and grabbed two boxes of nails, and put them onto his flat cart. These aren’t just any nails, these are Paslode hot-dipped galvanized framing nails, and these puppies are worth $170.96! We had no idea that the production of nails was such a lucrative business.

Man concealed the nails with five bags of red mulch. He then went to the checkout counter, and paid for the red mulch and a can of Red Bull. At this point in the story, we’re wondering if those nails were red too, because there certainly seems to be a theme here.

When detectives tried to stop Man, he ran. The detectives caught him, but he resisted, and fell to the ground, which caused him to have a boo-boo on his face…which was RED. And then they reminded him of his right to remain silent, which was READ to him.

In the end, Man was charged with theft and resisting, and needed a Band-Aid. Which we gave him. Not one of those expensive Spider-Man ones, though. Just a plain old Band-Aid. Actually, it wasn’t even a Band-Aid brand. More like one of those generic adhesive bandages. And it wasn’t red.

The moral of the story: Don’t steal at Lowe’s. Or Home Depot. Or anywhere else. It’s just not cool.
