Criminal to provide a public service?

Dear Editor:

It was publicized that in the last 11 days of January that there were 17 people arrested and transported to jail. The Aspen police force does a very good job of recognizing and arresting anyone who is breaking the law, from peeing on the street to DUIs and stealing.

I am sure they have been aware of my existence and free transportation service over the past five years, and they have never, I mean never, found that I was breaking the law (except parking tickets).

Then, an injunction that sent me to jail for 15 days for contempt of court – I had accepted a gratuity. I just can’t get it through this hard head that I cannot give free rides or that people cannot express a little appreciation.
