But Bowe Bergdahl is still out there wandering around, we won’t arrest and will only surveil ISIS terrorists here in the US, and a Manson killer might be set free.

Forget those library books, though, and and we’ll nail you! Got it.

Via ABC News.

Two overdue library books have landed a married couple in Tecumseh, Michigan, afoul of the law. Not only have the husband and wife been fined more than $200, but they were arraigned in court Thursday, each charged with larceny of rental equipment.

“We were appalled, totally appalled,” Catherine Duren, 44, told ABC News today. “We didn’t commit a crime.”

In the summer of 2014, Duren’s son checked out a Dr. Seuss book for Duren’s granddaughter from the Tecumseh District Library. But the book was misplaced and the library was sending notices to her son’s email, who was a minor at the time and never told his parents about the notices, Catherine Duren said.

Catherine Duren said she wasn’t notified directly until October 2014, when she said she received notice from the library that the late charges were now going on her credit report, but she didn’t understand that the book itself had not been returned.

Both Catherine and her husband, Melvin, 63, have health problems that put them on disability, she said, so they only receive a small amount of money through Social Security checks. Most of that money goes towards their medications, Duren said.

    Any arrests for Flint Mich. drinking water fiasco? Because if you can poison drinking water, then the perps may elevate to having children that don’t return library books.

    Let’s visit Tecumseh’s previous most notorious crime. American’s most prolific serial killer, Henry Lee Lucas, killed his mother there in 1960. Convicted to 20-40 years in prison, he was released in 1970 due to overcrowding. Where upon he committed the majority of his believed 200 murders before being caught. He confessed to around 600 unsolved killings/disappearances and provided some details. Then he recanted everything. Convicted to death for a few crimes that could be definitely shown he did. His death sentence was commuted to life in prison because subsequent investigation showed he couldn’t possibly have committed all that he confessed to. Eg, one serial killer confessed to other serial killer’s crimes, provided details that the public could not have known, and then got out of death sentence when it was discovered that he couldn’t have committed many of them. He died in Texas prison in 2001 at age 64.
