So a person borrowed money from someone , 2,000 to be exact and the person paid 500 and left. When they borrowed the money , they were written a check for it and its been about 5 years now since this happened. Theyve tried contacting him but he wont pick up , they can possibly find him in person but what would be the best thing to do ? Legal way btw. Take it too court ? Maybe tape record him in a way that he admits he owes them money or what?

There are enforceable oral agreements and contracts. The one the op described isn't one of them.

Of course it's a voidable contract and not void on its face so unless the other person got an attorney maybe they wouldn't know how to get the case tossed

From your weird phrasing, I can't tell if you lent money you shouldn't have, or if you're the asshole reneging on a loan.

If the latter, pay your debts.

Do confidential informants/ undercover cops sell drugs? by Lillian Fondleworth - Thu, 09 Jul 2015 20:35:37 EST ID:ojLuBvKt No.44392 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

A buddy of mine recently arranged to get a half gram of coke off someone at his work. The co worker ended up having his mom drop it off to him and now he is paranoid that the woman was a confidential informant or undercover cop. The coke she gave him was real and was really good he said. My question is are confidential informants allowed to sell drugs or just buy them? And if it was an undercover would my friend have gotten arrested on the spot or would they contact him later? It's been a few days and he hasn't heard anything yet. Have any of you heard of anyone getting busted from buying a small amount of drugs off of a CI? Or do they usually just bust dealers?

The reason cops don't generally distribute drugs into the wild is the potential for civil liability and bad publicity. It's incorrect to say they can't do it.

Cops sell drugs all the time. Look up the story of the anti-narcotics unit in south Texas that got busted recently for not only selling drugs, but trafficking and providing security for huge shipments.

Of course, they were behaving criminally, so they weren't acting in the scope of their duties.

That said, I don't know why they'd bother busting somebody for a half gram. And they probably would have done it when the dope was dropped off.

Is the half gram gone? If so, "your friend" should just keep "his" mouth shut if the cops show up. If the coke is gone and metabolized they're not going to have much of a case, are they?

>This video clearly shows Ms. Fondleworth receiving a half gram of cocaine from our undercover officer.
>(your lawyer says) Not at all. Ms. Fondleworth had asked to borrow a small amount of sweetener for her coffee. It was just Splenda. And since it's gone, y'all niggaz can't prove shit.

How can I make a noise complaint anonymously? I Live in a small town and don't want people knowing it was me, but every night my neighbors sit outside on their porch yelling and its 11 now and they won't stop. They skateboard all night and ask me for cigarettes all day.

Last time I called the cops they asked me my name and address before I could even tell them whats happening

Had some gang banger types pull up by us and pull out a can of mace, in turn I pulled out a camcorder.
Shut them down. Got their plate. Went to the police station and they printed out for us the name phone number, address, car make model license plate. We drove by there, the information was all there.

Dropped it at that. The police were likely not to misuse the database in that matter, there is no doubt

A noise complaint need not be prosecuted. Police need not to need to seek a

So a month or so ago I got in trouble with the law for freaking out on too potent of acid. I don't even remember what happened after a certain point but I was told I hit three cops and resisted arrest. Fast forward to the present, I already waived my pre-trial rights and the public defender stated I am offered a plea bargain. This includes minor assault and resisting arrest from what I gather. The arraignment has been rescheduled because I have to enroll in classes, go to counseling, and get a sponsor at NA. How ducked am I? What am I supposed to do when I have to pay for a 1,000 dollar hospital bill, 5,000 dollars of damage my roommate did while I was whacked out, and my parents aren't helping with a single thing, car insurance, health insurance, classes, anything? The place I work at is dead-end, but I have a chance to take some discounted classes and maybe get some second-rate insurance. On the other hand I could work with some friends at a painting business. I am 20 and have no other criminal record, what should I do?

Not trying to, whatever, but roommate did damage and how is it you are pinned with this damage? Does you roommate know he caused any damage? Was he on this so called acid also? If so did the acid make him do damage?

Classes, is this part of the plea bargain? Did you take a plea bargain. Who is
making you do classes.

Why did you waive your rights to a preliminary hearing. That you could have gained access as to what the state may have against you, intends to do, and should be able or not be able to state where it stands on the case, and that they would intend to prove it.

If roommate did damage but you did not, the state would have to prove you did the damage. That would have been a good bargaining tool if know they could not prove you did the damage. You waived that part as to make it tougher.

But sounds like you have a plea bargain opportunity.

Never take other peoples crime(s) as yours. Unless you really know what you are doing and agree.

the damage isn't part of the crime. I tried speaking to the neighbors in the surrounding apartments but no one was willing to come forward and say what they heard. I am pretty sure he knows but he's just trying to get me to pay for half because he is an as hole and the landlord is trying to sue the ship out of me. I waived my right to the preliminary hearing because I was advised to do so by my pd and had already been offered a plea bargain.

My roommate won't admit he did the damage, the landlord is willing to sue me just for the fact that I lived there and there was damage done. The pd told me to waive the hearing or suffer worse consequences for wasting the judge's time.

Well, it isn't unheard of to wave a preliminary hearing, basically calling in witnesses,
evidence provided, documents. Chance for both parties to take the stand, present evidence documents witnesses. There is a difference between wasting 'the courts' and the 'peoples' time, but exercising due process should not be a waste of time of the judge the courts and the people. Know what your plea bargain consists of, seek a better deal, lesser penalties. Do try to double up
on NA and try to limit counseling, if it costs per session. As in try to get this behind you. Try to seek a deferred sentence if possible for meeting the obligations agreement of the plea. You would may or may not have probation,
the quicker you would fulfill obligations the probation may be terminated early.
If drug testing is part of this do not get a dirty UA or you could be sentenced to the minimum,m to maximum penalty that the law allows. As well not doing community service if obligated, and counseling, NA etc. Do though try to seek
a deferred sentence if it could be possible.

How legal is it to create/host/offer JUST subtitles for media I don't own? by Lydia Neddleville - Sat, 27 Jun 2015 20:50:45 EST ID:Q3BVzHAv No.44346 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Tl;dr below; I admit like to run my mouth.

I've been watching this semi-obscure show for awhile with incredibly annoying, piss poor subtitles; the subs are in my native language, while the media is in a language I understand just well enough to know what to correct and how to correct it, but not to watch the media without any subs at all. I mean, I miss some stuff like cultural jokes that way, though I get the general picture. Worth mentioning I'm majoring in the media's original language. Anyway, as such, I want to go on a subtitle journey and make an effort to sub at least 20 of the episodes (decent subs of the rest are hosted legally). However, I also want to go into localization -- see: going through getting a degree for it -- and I don't want this subtitle journey to mark me as a pirate for all eternity and ruin my chances of getting hired. I hear you're supposed to provide examples of your work n all, but I don't think this is how one is supposed to do it. Either way, I'd like to do it for fun (and a sort of charity for the community of a thing I love, I suppose) more than anything else, but I also don't want it hurting my chances of getting hired somewhere if they somehow find out what I did.

What I'm planning on ACTUALLY doing is hosting/creating JUST the subtitle files, a.k.a. .srt files, which are mostly just bundles of text. You can make them in any ol word processor, I'm pretty sure -- I've successfully edited .srt files in one, at least. Anyway, you just pop em into your video player and they play the new subtitles over video you already have; without that video, they truly are just text. I don't like hard-subbing anyway (that's when you use a video editing program to embed text into the actual pixels themselves, which can't be removed and, I'd argue, helps piracy). So what this would be doing is giving new subtitles to people who have already obtained the relevant video themselves.

However, what I'm worried about is stuff like script copyright laws n all that. Would this be infringing on any such thing, or really, anything else? Also, I suppose this isn't directly law-related, but do you think …

Copyright holders may state this media cannot be modified in any way.
By offering an .srt, it would not be modifying the media.

Legalities, is it possibly illegal to translate media without changing or modifying the media? Obtained legally or otherwise?

Without claiming intellectual ownership/intellectual property of media scripts?

Ooh, now there's a thought. Let's say I was 9 years old and came upon a YouTube video of pirated media. Let's also say I was staunchly against piracy. In my prepubescent rage, I annotated the video with "DONT WATCH THIS IS ELEGAL!!!!" without consuming the media itself, as I quickly navigated my fragile attention elsewhere. Would this hypothetical self have committed a crime by modifying someone else's consumption of a piece of media I didn't own, even if I neither illegally watched it nor illegally distributed it? In addition, someone could easily toggle the annotations (subtitles), thereby making it different from hard-subbing (in which the subs are more or less rammed down your throat).

To add to that: I suppose the 9-year-old on YouTube analogy isn't exact cause the kid isn't modifying anything about the media except superficially. For example, he isn't translating the media. However, keep in mind that the point of localization is to change a lot of the literal meaning. "Raining cats and dogs" would sound like nonsense if translated literally into most other languages. nb

It's not the media that's in question. If the speech/text you're translating or the translation you're modifying is itself a copyrighted work (and it usually is), it's infringement. There are exceptions, but not for fixing "piss poor subtitles".

so my friend moved in to my house a few months ago. agreed to pay $350 a month (I have his statements and out convos logged on facebook and a word document) he paid a little at first and then quit his job. I was irritated but I let him stay while he looked for a new job. Now he is employed and I want him to sign an official document so there can be no misunderstanding. he is dragging his feet and I have been told he has expressed thoughts of not paying and cutting ties with me to others. I know I was stupid to trust even an old friend and I should have made him sign something on day 1, but is there anything I can do? I'm about to tell him either to sign or move his things out, but I would like to at least make up for the money my family and I paid in extra bills to keep him here. I was even willing to forgive hundreds of dollars of debt if he just signs but I think even still he is going to back stab me.

Have a camera on in case he apeshits, and if the police say they can't do anything because you let him move in, carefully place his shit in a pile on the curb. I'm sure they'll say they can't do anything since there's no contract, and that he'll pay you what he owes you for those select items of his you keep.

my plan now is i will ask my other friend not to help him move since he needs him. I will tell the betraying friend to sign or get his stuff out in a very timely manner. most if not all of my friends will not let him stay at their places. I will tell any potential landlords that he is not credit worthy and about what he did. then if he still refuses I will go to small claims court.

Since there is no contract this is actually a good thing in my opinion. If he has a key get it back on the spot so he doesn't hopefully make or have a copy. Move all his stuff to the curb, or just the front
to be fair. Have a set time for him to get it moved or curb it, let him know this, and call it a loss.

My opinion a contract would give him more rights than otherwise would have been.

>i have a job for the state,

Sure you do. This is an anonymous imageboard, so you have no way to prove that, and even if it were true, it's probably a shitty job.

And even if it were true and even if it weren't a shitty job, I guess congratulations on being a rare exception. Because for most jobs, if an employer has a resume from a guy without a record and a resume from a guy with a record, all other things being equal, the guy without the record is getting the job. Only in this economy, it's more like you've got 100 applicants, and 10 of them have records and 90 don't. Nobody wants to go through 100 resumes with a fine toothed comb. Guess which 10 resumes are getting tossed in the garbage first?

>prior to getting it, i had 2 upms, after getting it i got another upm and 2 duis, i still have my job.

And are those charges misedemeanors or felonies in your state? OP is asking about things that are felonies in many jurisdictions.

Oh, I'm sorry, we're not suppose to give good advice here. Let me change my tune.

Generally they are found unless you know some virtually hidden spot. Need to irrigate them and all. Leave no visible trail. Know what you are generally doing or they will just plain fail. Just don't get caught. Cultivation would be a possible charge. Drug tests matter none unless it is part of placing you on probation or part of probation and or sentencing.
