She obviously knew it was stolen and was quick to snap it up for cheap. She got what she deserved.

Can you charge her with attempt to buy stolen property?

Yes, right after she confesses.

Just got a flash of a scene in the movie A Few Good Men...
Kevin Bacons character and Tom Cruise's character are plea bargain negotiating...

"He bought drugs..."
"He bought a dime bag of oregano..."
"Yeah, but he thought it was marijuana..."
"So he's innocent... stupid, but innocent... what are you going to charge him with, possession of a condiment?"

and the winning section:

... she felt stupid, but learned a valuable lesson, and offered this advice, "Don't buy nothing on the streets from nobody."

the rarely-heard TRIPLE NEGATIVE!

Uhm...
1- Why the hell is she wearing empty BCD glasses frames ? Is this some sort of Harry Potter wannabe thing ?

2- Did you see the incredibly sarcastic text crawl at the bottom of the video ? Woah !

Texas has gas stations that are open full time ? Here in NYC you can only get ripped off on odd and even days (depending on the last digit of your license plate)

Rewatch that video. Is she wearing glasses with no lenses? That may explain a lot.

It is a fashion trend that people are doing these days.

If I were stupid enough to bite on this offer, I sure as heck wouldn't admit publicly that I was that stupid.

You want to buy obviously stolen goods, OK, but why wouldn't she open the box first before handing the guy the money?

"See how you are?"


at least it wasn't an Android tablet.

POMTL!


Can you charge her with attempt to buy stolen property?

Tough to *prove* intent, so you'd have to count on a jury agreeing that it was reasonable and prudent to believe it stolen prior to buying. Not really worth the time and effort, I'd guess.

Exactly.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
