HOLY CRAP THIS HAPPENED IN DURANGO?!!!!
Yeah I haven't heard anything about this from any of the local sources, not from Campus radio or otherwise, and not seen anything about it in the papers. Personally I thought everyone in this town had a level head about them, guess not.

That's all that was discussed on KOA today... Several callers said they're going to do several knock and runs on the lady's door this week. Anyway, you'd think that this is the actions of an "old hag", but the woman is actually 43. The radio station today started a collection to give $900 to the family. They raised it all by the end of the show. I think the whole motivation behind of this has also been $$$. This woman saw an opportunity, knows how the court systems are today, and tried to take them for as much as she could.
Between this and the dumb-ass CU Professor people are probably starting to think that Coloradians are freally -'ed up...

IMO the judge did the right thing.
The 2 girls repeatedly banged on the door and didnt answer to the womans call of "whos there", to her it could have been anyone banging on the door 10pm at night.
If you knock on someones door and they ask who it is any "normal" person would have said what they wanted or who it was, instead these 2 girls didnt answer and went away, the woman could be suffering from Anxiety or panic attacks, a woman on her own having her door banged 10pm at night not knowing who it is.
Also what are the girls doing going around selling cookies, its illegal as they dont say what the "product" contains..what if someones allergic to nuts or something, they could have been sued or been brought for manslaughter charges if the person died, despite wether they were being nice or not.

Planespotterx: Fortunately, you're the minority here . . . . and you should re-read the story . . . they weren't selling cookies . . . let me share a small quote from the article for you . . . . by leaving her home-baked cookies. . . . they were just being nice. . . read the article again.
Ya know, the lady could have called 911 . . . let the cops come . . . since "I are 1" and if I'd shown up at the door, seen the cookies, I'd have laughed my ass off.
The judge, well he's in need of a sanity check himself. First of all, telling these legal adults where they ought to be at 10:30pm is bull. Second, even finding that the case had merit to even get on the docket is amazing! It should have been tossed without a hearing.
IMHO - it's all about "can I sue these people and get some $$$$". Welcome to the American Legal Systemm.
Hell, I'd be the least bit surprised if the lady saw this she'd sue me for slander . . . . . . laughable.
Shheeeeez . . . .
Bet that's the last time she get her driveway shoveled . . .

yea my bad ANCFlyer, but still doesnt explain why they just knocked and ran off, even if it was a surprise.
As for the judge telling them where they should be at 10.30pm, well thats about as silly as the whole argument over the incident in the first place.
But still, you cant do/say anything without offending someone these days, you cant even have a genuine "accident" these days without someone sueing for tripping over a pavement or walking into a tree, this world deserve a Darwin award in itself.
