I’ll gladly post Thursday what pissed me off today!

So while I was perusing my news feed on Facebook (no, sorry, not linking that, trying to phase it out of my life) I came across a post from a friend to this article about a woman who was put in jail for saying her children lived at their grandfather’s address so they could go to a better school.  While the idea of such a thing happening makes me physically ill, I realised the article left much to be desired.  So I followed one of the links to a newspaper article which stated much of the same, but still seemed a bit biased to the side of the mother (and, oddly enough, seems a bit biased against the media).  So I thought I’d check out some other articles in the process.

So I did a quick Google for the woman’s name (Kelley Williams-Bolar) and found a number of articles and blog posts about the incident.  So I’m going to read them, and then I’m going to write some more on my take of the subject.

Why?

Because I’m an opinionated asshole, that’s why.

So after reading the Slate article I’m beginning to wonder exactly where my school district’s money is going.  How many private investigators are they hiring instead of buying new text books, installing salad bars, or, heck, even hiring teachers?

The most interesting bit, by far, has to be The Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority (AMHA) attempting to find out if she did, in fact, live in public housing with her children.  Now, coming just from the stand point of common sense, if the jury has ruled she did, in fact, live in public housing with her children in Akron, OH, she shouldn’t be getting charge for living outside Akron, OH, because, at that point, the original charge can’t stand.  From a legal standpoint?

Dammit Jim, I’m a blogger, not a lawyer!

But that doesn’t mean I’m not opinionated.  Now, what are you’re opinions?
