A woman caught shoplifting eggs in Tarrant Saturday didn't leave with handcuffs and a court date. Thanks to a Tarrant police officer, she left with food for her family. Officer William Stacy was called to a Dollar General when employees caught the woman trying to steal the eggs, Tarrant Police Chief Dennis Reno said. Stacy talked with Dollar General and they said they wouldn't prosecute. So Stacy made an offer. "He said, 'If I give you these eggs, will you promise that you won't shoplift anymore?'" Reno said. "He knew that she was telling the truth and that's the reason he went in and bought the eggs."

NN as a concept is good for the average American. That does not mean the new regulation is good.

Even the EFF was worried about some of provisions www.eff.org

Not to worry there will be lawsuits and changes coming.

As far as what they charge Bogey part of the issue is they charge for bandwidth then don't deliver it and since in many markets they have an effective monopoly that means switching providers is not a legitimate possibility.

The funny thing is none of this would have happened if Comcast had followed the de facto rules of the internet or accepted the "light touch" regulation that came after. It was Comcast violating the concept of NN that caused rules in the first place and then suing to overturn those rules that caused 330 page regulations. Yet no one who has an issue with these new rules is calling Comcast on the fact that their actions made it necessary in the first place.

Screw Comcast and the FCC IMHO.
