eBay Idiots

Yet more proof that people aren't too smart.

Teacher In Stolen Coat Scheme
Cops: Oregon woman tried to sell student's hot garment on eBay

MAY 2--Meet Elizabeth Logan. The Oregon teacher is facing felony charges for allegedly trying to sell on eBay the stolen winter jacket of an elementary school student. According to cops, the coat had been worn by an eight-year-old girl attending Jackson Elementary School in Hillsboro--where Logan, 41, teaches first grade--until the garment went missing in January. At that point, the girl's mother, Leah Corso, went on eBay to look for a replacement coat. It was then that Corso discovered a Columbia Sportswear ski jacket identical to the one worn by her daughter Jenna. Corso also noticed that the seller of the item came from Hillsboro. She told TSG that the eBay auction began the day after her child's jacket disappeared from the school playground. The eBay listing, which can still be found here, described the size 7/8 jacket as, "hardly worn and in great shape. Super warm!!" After some sleuthing, Corso contacted police, who determined that Logan was behind the eBay auction. Logan was named Monday in a criminal indictment charging her with computer crime and theft by receiving.

Lesson to be learned: You can't sell stuff that you don't own. It's illegal.

At the very least, wait a few months before trying to turn the stuff around. Also, how refreshing to see a teacher in trouble with the law who DIDN'T sleep with one of her students, right?

You wonder sometimes just what the hell people think. I am glad she got caught! Stupid woman!

What is wrong with you that you steal a kid's coat and try to sell it on eBay? It's not like the money could have motivated her.

Yes, this situation was kneejerked all over the news, but where was the critical thinking here. And indeed, what the hell were people thinking? Was it really wise that Lila Ashenbrenner (Chief, Hillsboro Police) had Hillsboro Detective Kari Skinner (married to Hillsboro Deputy Chief Chris Skinner)go into the school & terrorize this teacher in full sight of her 1st graders? Was it wise of school principal Janice Hill to allow this short- & long-disruption of the school climate? If the Corsos weren't so arrogantly vindictive wouldn't they have let the teacher compensate them for this coat, which was GIVEN to the teacher from the Lost & Found by the school janitor? Was it wise to inflict a "mock trial" of this teacher at the school by a substitute teacher? Where was the Union this teacher "supported" for 20 years?

And where is all the web content about these very same "civil" servant terrorists attending counterfeit product parties through invitations posted on City of Hillboro computers by Mary Gruss, Finance Manager, just weeks after huge raids of local fleamarkets for pirated/ counterfeit products by Beaverton police?

Where was the media when a California/Oregon lawyer (married to an exec involved in clinical trials) was stalking people from a Bess Kaiser pharmacy & stealing pain prescriptions from their cars who was eventually caught by a victim? Washington County/ Hillsboro Deputy DA Gina Skinner actually seemd to be defending the criminal rather than the victim.

Instead of the teacher & possibly her husband losing their jobs & publicly humiliated I think MOST people would feel better about having the Stalker & his wife having the same done to them. And it wouldn't involved the life-long impressions of very young children
