Kayla Michelle Finley, of Pickens, S.C., was arrested Thursday when she went to the county sheriff's office to report a crime, according to Fox Carolina. Police discovered she had an active warrant for not returning a movie. (Yes, apparently that is a crime.)

The 27-year-old woman was charged with petit larceny for failing to return a video cassette of the Jennifer Lopez movie "Monster-In-Law" in 2005. She spent the night in jail.

The video store she rented the movie from is no longer in business.

"It's obvious that Pickens County has nothing better to do," Finley wrote to Fox Carolina via Facebook. "I fully intend on fighting this. It's ridiculous that I had this happen to me."

Police said letters ordering Finley to return the video were sent to her almost nine years ago. They also said a certified warrant was sent to her on Sept. 21, 2005. According to WYFF, Finley said she never got any of those.Source: Youtube

Christopher dreamed of joining the Marines. All of that ended when he was executed by a cop. The OP-Nat Eye reports that 17-yr-old Christopher Roupe was shot and killed moments after sitting down to watch a movie in his family’s home.

At around 7:30 PM, young Christopher took out his Nintendo Wii controller to put on a movie.

As he was sitting down, he suddenly heard knocking on the front door.

He asked, “Who is it?” but received no response.

At that point he got up from his chair and opened the door.

To his shock, the female cop already had her gun drawn and pointed at him, according to reports.

She immediately fired a bullet into the boy’s chest and killed him, according to Renee Vance, the boy’s aunt.

The police claim that “he had a handgun.”

It was actually the boy’s small Nintendo Wii controller, says the aunt.

The officer gave him “no warning” to drop the controller before taking his life, the aunt added.

The police claimed to be at his house regarding a “probation” matter. It turns out that it had nothing to do with Christopher.

His 13-yr-old little sister heard the gun shot and ran over to the door to find her brother bleeding and crying.

The little sister held her brother and tried to comfort him as he cried in pain, according to reports.

That’s when the female cop pointed her gun at the child and said “Shut up!” according to reports, forcing the girl away.

Moments later Christopher bled to death.

Both the female officer and the officer who was with her have received “paid administrative leave” as the investigation proceeds.

The boy’s family is deeply saddened.

They have set up Facebook page speaking out about the incident. Many of the boy’s friends are confused as to how this could possibly happen to a young man with so many plans for his future.”

“Prayers for his younger siblings, may they take pride in knowing what a great big brother they had, and what a great Marine he was going to be….” said one commenter.

Christopher leaves behind his younger sister, who was told to "shut up" as she cried and held her dying brother.

Another commented, “God wrap your arms around this family in their time of grief!  So sorry for your loss!”

Another young girl recounted the time when Christopher saved her family from a fire, already displaying heroism as a teenager:

“I remember at Americas best inn my mom and my sister was at the pool so was my dad and a paper towel blew in my moms candle and you helped me stop the fire. If it wasn't for Christopher the room would of caught on fire thanks for helping me Chris.”

“I’ll never understand why or how this happened,but what i do know is you were a great friend and more than that you were family.I miss you bro and i’ll see you again when our paths cross. FLY HIGH AND PROUD!” said one of Christopher’s friends.

We just received this e-mail from our source in the Philippines
"Many relatives of the sick have been sent to quarantine camps in a undisclosed location. Many of the sick are dead or have been sent to another field hospital and their prognosis not good.  I have been contacted by the military again and the official reason was a flu that causes high temperatures and because of that, the sick become delirious and combative. Many who have seen what has occurred are not talking to anyone. It is as if nothing as happened. I don't know what to think."

The Mindful Patriot has searched the internet for any reports about the outbreak of the "flu" and have not found any to date.

We are reporting these e-mails in good faith they are factual. 

For the first time since 2011 the Fed policy-making committee unanimously voted for a reduction in the bond buying program.

At its Jan. 28-29 meeting, the Fed agreed to trim its purchases of Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed to $65 billion a month from $75 billion. Fed policymakers took a first step toward tapering the program in January, reducing the bond-buying from $85 billion a month.

The Feds. claim they will monitor the economy each month and if things start to look bad they will restore higher bond buying to offset the drop in the markets. 

It is very simplistic to think of our economy as being that easy to correct in fact, if the economy starts to fail there is no definite solution or fix to correct it.  For the Feds to claim they can reverse it is nothing more than a bold face lie and further more a ploy for the low information citizen to believe so they can sleep easier and not withdraw all their money from the banks.

The consumer price index that came out Wednesday shows prices climbed 3.7 percent last month compared to the same time a year ago.  The report indicated that inflation is picking up speed and the only thing we will see not go up this summer is the price of gas. Examples of inflation are already being seen around the country.

In Colorado people are paying about 4 percent more this year than they were last year to feed their families.

"We are running mean and lean with a core staff and everyone wears a lot of hats," Jennifer Chick-Gray from Home & The Range Appliance in Denver said.

Last month, sales dropped by 25 percent at the store; employees say it's common in April and May.

Clothing stores are also adjusting to the lack of demand. With cotton at a 150-year high, clothing prices are expected to jump by 20 percent by the end of the summer.

Vehicle prices are also on the rise. The average price for a new vehicle is hovering around $30,000. That's up $700 since last year.

With inflation on the rise and unemployment still high, this summer will be very interesting indeed.
