    Traffic Accidents: Re: Car vs. Bicycle. Who is at Fault

  9. Disorderly Conduct: Re: White and Black. Racial Profiling

  12. Trademarks: Re: Trademark/Copyright Slogan

    I disagree with both assertions.

    If JCP is offering to drop charges and merely ban you from JCP for a year, in return for $200, I would take them up on the offer. Get it in writing.
