Applebees to Replace People with Pads
Could you imagine cops in New York or Chicago doing this? They’d be busting a gut laughing if they were to read this. You just can’t make this shit up.
One Saturday in November, Kaveh Kamooneh drove his Nissan Leaf to Chamblee Middle School, where his 11-year-old son was playing tennis. Kamooneh had taken the liberty of charging the electric car with an exterior outlet at the school. Within minutes of plugging in the car, he says a Chamblee police officer appeared.
“He said that he was going to charge me with theft by taking because I was taking power, electricity from the school,” Kamooneh said.
Kamooneh says he had charged his car for 20 minutes, drawing about a nickel’s worth of juice. Don Francis of Clean Cities Atlanta, an electric vehicle advocacy group, says the estimate of 5 cents is accurate.
And as if that weren’t crazy enough:
Ford said Chamblee Police did so without asking school officials if they wanted to prosecute the alleged theft of electricity.

An Alabama law firm is disassociating itself from a racist commercial released by a Florida company that claims the law firm provided the script.
Vice reported on Monday that Definitive Television has blamed McCutcheon & Hamner, P.C. for the copy used for the ad, in which a white man portraying an “Asian” caricature complains about an insurance company “messing [him] over” and that “Confucius” led him to the firm’s website.
But the attorneys denied any connection to the commerical on the firm’s Facebook page on Nov. 25, writing, “McCutcheon and Hamner’s You Tube Channel has been hacked. Hamner also released a statement to the legal affairs blog Above The Law, saying Definitive Television refused to honor a cease-and-desist letter, as well as a request that Definitive owner Jim DeBerry “disclose the party that allowed my partner and I to be portrayed in such a negative and misleading light.”
For his part, DeBerry — who plays “Mr. Wong Fong Su” in the commercial — has defended the ad on Twitter, where he has argued, “I’m not a racist, I’m a member of the NAACP who has black relatives.” In his own statement to Above The Law, DeBerry denies his company tampered with the firm’s YouTube page, saying, “We run a production company that creates ‘Cheesy B-Rate Commercials.’ We have never had any involvement with McCutcheon & Hamner, P.C’s Youtube Account.”
They say there’s no bad publicity.
