The safest city in America is....

.....Grafton, Wisconsin.

The police there have eliminated crime completely and now find themselves with lots of time on their hands.

So they're arresting people who haven't returned overdue library books.

Heidi Dalibor, 20, was recently arrested, handcuffed and fingerprinted after she failed to return a couple of library books.

When the local TV stations found out, they did what TV stations everywhere do best. Not exactly the crime of the century.

To me, this seems like an abuse and misuse of police resources. This case wasn't a criminal matter, it was a civil matter. Perhaps the library should use a collection agency to collect fines and let the police tackle more important problems.
