Yet another reason why I don't have kids

In New York State, a 4 year old rats out her dad and gets momma a court case to boot.
MASSENA - State police here found a wanted man with a little help from his 4-year-old daughter.

Police arrested John A. Colby, 30, of Massena, at about 7:30 a.m. Sunday and charged him with third-degree bail jumping, second-degree obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest, according to a press release.

Troopers arrived at Colby's 12 Stearns St. home with bench warrants from Stockholm and Norfolk town courts. Initially, Colby's girlfriend - 27-year-old Jessica L. Smith of Massena - denied knowing his whereabouts. That's when Colby's daughter reportedly told police, "Daddy is scared and hiding in the attic."

Smith refused to comply with troopers, police said, and "actively resisted" when they tried to go into the attic and take Colby into custody. She was subsequently charged with second-degree obstructing governmental administration.

Colby was arraigned in Norfolk town court and remanded to St. Lawrence County Jail in lieu of $1,655 cash bail. He's due to reappear Wednesday morning. Smith was issued an appearance ticket returnable to Massena village court Jan. 31.
Sure, Murphy can be a pain at times, but I'm pretty confident that if and when Obama gets a second term and initiates a nationwide gun round-up, should they come knocking on my door and I deny having any guns, Murphy probably won't reveal where they're actually hidden.


  1. A perfect example of 'need to know' and why it's important.

  2. Duke got it in one :-)

  3. I now feel much better about not reproducing. Plus, I know they would have been sucking the water in the shallow end of the gene pool!

  4. Like many fat people of all ages, my wife had a chocolate bar stash, which, in her case, she kept in the top drawer of the night stand in her bedroom when she was a little girl.

    One day when she wasn't home, her dog went into the bedroom and, smelling the chocolate, knocked over the nightstand, thus betraying the candy stash.

    Your firearms and ammo should be okay, but I wouldn't be so sure about the candy.

  5. You'd better start working on that "shhh, keep the secret" command.

  6. Hey don't be blaming the fact that the Dad is a scumbag on the kid. Fact of the matter is that the daughter possesses higher morals than Daddy dearest. She actually managed not to lie.
