"7:36 a.m. Two windows reportedly were broken out of a school in the 800 block of Oak Street. Police said they found a rock inside the building, but that nothing appeared to be missing."

The rock is being held for questioning related to a rash of recently missing cellphones.

Our PD never heard about the concept of "theft of services." Would they call it a "civil matter" if a person checked out of a motel without paying the bill? How about leaving a restaurant without paying the bill?

CRS 8-14-114 says:

"8-4-114. Criminal penalties. Statute text (1) Any employer who violates the provisions of section 8-4-103 (6) is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by a fine of not more than three hundred dollars, or by imprisonment in the county jail for not more than thirty days, or by both such fine and imprisonment.

(2) In addition to any other penalty imposed by this article, any employer or agent of an employer who, being able to pay wages or compensation and being under a duty to pay, willfully refuses to pay as provided in this article, or falsely denies the amount of a wage claim, or the validity thereof, or that the same is due, with intent to secure for himself, herself, or another person any discount upon such indebtedness or any underpayment of such indebtedness or with intent to annoy, harass, oppress, hinder, delay, or defraud the person to whom such indebtedness is due, is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by a fine of not more than three hundred dollars, or by imprisonment in the county jail for not more than thirty days, or by both such fine and imprisonment. For purposes of this section, "being able to pay wages or compensation" does not include an employer who is unable to pay wages or compensation by reason of a chapter 7 bankruptcy action or other court action that results in the employer having limited control over his or her assets."

I wonder how the cops would like it if the city or the county refused to pay when due? It wouldn't be a "civil matter" then, would it boys?

Cops who allow these types of injustices to go on just because they don't want to deal with them are the lowest form of life on earth, because they COULD help, but they won't. And they wonder why people distrust them?
