Toner Mishap Due to Cockroaches

Cockroaches are eating toner in the Municipal Court 1 in Skopje, Macedonia.

Judges said that this problem is the reason why they are not able to print the records of the court sessions; they are finding cockroaches in the printers, but the heat and the laser were killing them so there were no bigger defects. However, the cockroaches have eaten the toner on several occasions.

"This is big shame for the country. This court, as the biggest court in the country, should have the best equipment instead of fighting cockroaches," one of the judges reacted.

One could utter a similar quote about the judicial nominees in the U.S.:

"This is big shame for the country. This court, as the biggest court in the country, should have the best judges instead of cockroaches."
