Disagree with a library book? Steal it!!

OR: Free Speech on sale for $20.95

Picture this: You’re in a library and you see a book that has viewpoints that differ from your own. Do you:

a) Check out the book to compare/contrast your own viewpoint

b) Respect other peoples beliefs, and leave it alone

c) Steal the book, send a check to the library to cover the cost then go to another library and do the same.

Well, if you’re familiar with the stories I post about then you already know that the lady in this story chose ‘c’.

JoAn Karkos stole copies of “It’s Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex and Sexual Health” from two libraries in Lewiston and Auburn, Maine because she was “horrified” by the content and now she refuses to give them back. JoAn later sent a check for $20.95 and a letter to each of the libraries she robbed.

Does she think that the libraries will just blow it off? Does she think that they can’t get another copy of the book? Does she think that a patron of free speech won’t hear about this and donate a dozen copies to each library? Who knows? She’s not that bright!

I will bet you $11.75 (the amount of money currently in my pocket) that she is a nut from the religious right who believes that “Thou shalt not steal” doesn’t apply to her because she is doing God’s work. It’s becoming more plain every day that god and hypocrisy go hand in hand.
