Quotes

"The defendant was a career fraudster who in the past had committed theft after theft and learned nothing," prosecutors said. "She continued to commit this type of offense for one reason only, greed."
...Off in the distance, he coasts to a stop and with his British accent asks, "Are you alone?” Awkward pause. “I'm sorry that's a really creepy question. What's your name?" I nervously smile while I hold back laughter and reply "Yeah, I'm just gonna keep walking."
"I have great faith that we will succeed in this important mission; once we have put it behind us we will be the stronger for it and more prepared to meet the kinds of challenges that we as Americans are uniquely prepared to face."
"Please accept this letter as notice of my formal resignation, effective immediately," Garcia said the letter read. "I, Ismael 'Melo Ochoa do hereby resign my position as Justice of the Peace for Precinct 3, Place 2.""
