You are correct! I would not be pounding THE KEYBOARD if "he were here"! And James Episcopia is not a cop!! He is the cafeteria manager who was insistent on pressing charges on this misunderstanding! The cause of all of this nonsense and taxpayer dollars being spent! You are also correct that he won't be taking ice anymore!! He didn't need to be charged to "learn his lesson"! He learned of this when Epsicopia came over to him and accused him of stealing!! I would say after he was informed that the cafeteria charges for cups of ice, that was enough for him to realize not to do it again. If he is selling ice, any smart business person would have it listed somewhere for customers to know! Or do you not agree with that? Of course you don't! That would make too much sense! And by the way... a misunderstanding over a cup of ice does not make him a non law abiding citizen!

Franken Harpo 7:29 am on Saturday, March 24, 2012 What nonsense...next you will be calling for a sign saying "no urinating under the tables' Get real and then finish your education. Thank you. NONSENSE??? RECOMMENDING THAT YOU POST ON THE MENU THAT THERE IS A CHARGE FOR ICE TO AVOID FUTURE MISUNDERSTANDINGS? I WOULD THINK THAT TO BE A PRETTY GOOD IDEA! AND YOUR "NO URINATING UNDER THE TABLES" COMMENT? REALLY? GREAT IDEA SHOWING PEOPLE ON THIS SITE YOUR LACK OF INTELLIGENCE!! ****!

Point...game...set...match. It's over! The freshman was caught, he told his side to the school's disciplinary committee in closed session, he took responsibility for his misdeed, he had to write a two page composition, his college record will bear the "interference with a school employee" mark and he promised he would never do it again. Currently, he is still allowed in the cafeteria. It is all over except for whining, eh?

Perfectly natural progression in your emotional development. Your politics and your all capital letter rants don't measure up to debate so you resort to personal attacks and insults. The hubris of the defeated...look it up. I'll be here all week. Better luck in your other relationships.
