    Chicken hires shark to weasel out of charges laid by pigs, saves some scratch.

    When confronted by police and advised that if she didn't remove herself from the roadway immediately, she would be facing three charges, the defiant fowl replied "Book Book Book!"

    Its pretty sad this is what we have come to, Lawyers defending chickens in front of a judge. A system born onto itself for its own selfish reasons. Who got paid for this nonsense? who made money?
    Sheriff,
    Judge,
    Lawyer.

    who lost time and money? Chicken and its owner

    This is why we have more and more laws so these control freaks can steal more and more from the working class and society. I bet the next thing they do is pass some stupid chicken crossing the road law next so the next time all those living off of society will get a check next time.

    Luckily the judge did the right thing in this case. Maybe the sheriff will do something about the off road vehicles now.

    I'm glad that they won, even though it may have cost them more. It's the principle of the matter. And sadly, they have to stand up to their local police by the sounds of it too.

    i read this thread header as if "chicken ducks" were a noun, and fine was an adjective. so it seemed like the equivalent of "jaywalking chicken ducks are fine". and then i wondered what a chicken duck was.

    i have nothing further to contribute.

    Whats crazy about this is that while he was wasting his time with the bird, some one was getting robed or driving drunk. Thats the great tax dollars working there... oh and the attorney.... HA, another waste

    I was hoping to find out why the chicken crossed the road, but I guess we'll never know. :(

    same deputy still at it

    I know this is a very old topic but I thought that someone may be interested to know that the same deputy that wrote the jaywalking chicken a ticket wrote me one because I took too long to pass other vehicles that were going 1/2 as slow as me. Just so happens I was in front of him and apparantly made his small world inconvient. Me thinks he has no life and a copy of the vc in the crapper for reading material.
