Should someone be charged with "theft of service" if they sit in their car outside a public library and glom onto the library's free wi-fi? This guy was.
Key quote: "Either way, Tanner's Internet usage has been curtailed. He's got a home computer, but his parents don't let him on the Web after 9 p.m. He's been using computers at the library during the day."

So did the authorities go too far here, or not?
Stupid criminals, part 1: If you're going to rob someone's house in the middle of the night, it's probably best not to ring the doorbell first.
Stupid criminals, part 2: And if you're going to rob a bank, it's probably best to be able to run fast enough to make it farther than 30 feet away from the entrance before the cops get there.
Blowing out the candles: Happy birthday to Coop--teen no more.
