The place I worked as a guard had this happen. We held inmates from a bunch of counties in several states. One of the PDs fax machine broke and they would go across the street to Kinkos and fax release orders on their letterhead. After a while they would just use paper without the letterhead. An inmates wife simply faxed an improvised release form and we sent her husband home. He got cought when he arrived because the PD had no release on file. Everything changed after that, a phone call was required with proper ID.

Sure you can say fuck BOTH of them, I do it every election. I haven't voted for a democrat or republican for the last 15 or 20 years execpt for very local city / county elections. If there isn't a 3rd party running, that part of the ballot gets skipped. I don't care who is running as long as it's not a democrat or republican ( or those fake independants ) I'll mark them, I don't care who wins because they are both equally bad. I refuse to vote for the lesser of two evils anymore. The thing is, I make sure I vote! I can't wait to see a president elected with 20% of the popular vote, maybe that will get some attention. ( I might not live long enough. )

The solution of this problem is trivial and is left as an exercise for the reader.
