ALOHA -- For most folks it's not a dilemma. Given a choice between "a day without sunshine" and a day without jail time, most people will skip the orange juice and stay out of jail.
But Raibin Raof Osman isn't most people. The 20-year-old Aloha man had a sleepover at the Washington County Jail on Memorial Day after calling 9-1-1 to complain that McDonald's left a box of orange juice out of his drive-through order.A restaurant employee later called 9-1-1 to report that Osman and others who were with him were blocking the drive-through lane, knocking on restaurant windows and intimidating employees.
"The deputy basically said, 'You can't use 9-1-1 for that reason,' " Thompson explained. "It's not an emergency.
Thompson said Osman tried to argue that he had the legal right to call the police.
"He said it was a 'freedom of speech' issue," Thompson said. "He was not open to having the deputy educate him."

A 30-year-old Chicagoan who was striving to be the "man of the house" in which he and his extended family lived was killed and two of his cousins were wounded Saturday evening in a shooting near their South Side home.
The shootings occurred on the 10500 block of South Indiana Avenue in the Roseland neighborhood about 11 p.m., down the block from the home of the fatal gunshot victim, Demond Stansbury.
Stansbury was among seven people slain in several shootings Saturday night and Sunday in Chicago. No one was charged in any of the slayings.
