Bed Bites Man

Grrr!  I'll Get You!!

"Emergency crews were called to a home in Reid in Canberra's east about 9am (AEDT) on Sunday, the ACT Emergency Services Agency said in a statement.Paramedics and rescue firefighters found the 60-year-old man impaled in the stomach on an ornamental bed headboard.
They worked for half-an-hour to free the man before taking him to Canberra Hospital in a serious but stable condition."

Sorry,  but there are no details on how he ended up impaled.  So I fancy that the bed came alive and tried to eat him.

  Grrr,  Arrgh!

Cashier Was To Busy Talking On Cell Phone To Be Robbed

A woman entered the store and pointed a gun at the cashier,  who at first thought she was joking.  He said that he was busy talking and couldn't help her.  Hell,  that's happened to me before - minus the robbing the place part. :)  Here is the story according to the police:

"The suspect came into the convenience store, on Sheridan Road at Pine Road, about 10 p.m. The clerk noticed she was clutching a gun, but at first thought it was a joke, police said.

The suspect told the clerk to unload the till. The clerk said he was busy and kept talking on the phone. The robbery suspect then left."

Walmart Madness #60! Shoplifter Leaves Purse At Scene

"Police say a Gastonia woman’s shoplifting spree was foiled after she left her purse at the Walmart where she stole three shopping carts full of goods.
The incident took place Thursday at the Walmart on Myrtle School Road. Police say Loretta Darlene Reid took $1,800 worth of goods including beer, three car batteries, an air mattress, food, clothing and a shag rug."

So of course she reports that her purse was stolen,  and gets charged for filing a false police report.  DOH!

A 26-year-old woman came home on Christmas to find a man she'd never seen before folding her laundry in her Irving Park neighborhood apartment, police said.

A judge set bail at $125,000 Wednesday for Paul Edge, who police said lives on the 3900 block of North Clark Street, according to the Cook County sheriff's office.

Edge, 58, a registered sex offender, was charged with violation of sex offender registration, a felony, and a misdemeanor count of criminal trespass, authorities said.

The woman told the Tribune she had been away for Christmas but returned home Tuesday night with her fiance to the 4000 block of North Kilbourn Avenue and found Edge sitting cross-legged on her living room floor folding her laundry.

Police said he also claimed he had cleaned the apartment.

"It was pretty scary,'' she said.

Study Indicates Many Drivers Run Over Turtles On Purpose

"Clemson University student Nathan Weaver just wanted to put together a project to help figure out the best way to assist turtles in crossing the road. But he also ended up with a peek into the dark souls of some human beings.Weaver put realistic-looking rubber turtles, no bigger than a saucer, in the middle of a lane on a busy road near campus. Then he got out of the way and watched as over the next hour, seven drivers intentionally ran over the turtle, and several more appeared to try to hit the defenseless animal, but missed.
"It was a bit surprising. I've heard of people and from friends who knew people that ran over turtles. But to see it out here like this was a bit shocking," said Weaver, a 22-year-old senior in Clemson's School of Agricultural, Forest and Environmental Sciences.
But to seasoned researchers, the targeting of turtles and other reptiles isn't surprising. The number of box turtles is on a slow decline, with one prominent reason being the riskiness of crossing the road because the trip takes several minutes.
And even in today's more enlightened, modern world, sometimes humans feel a need to prove they are the dominant species on this planet by taking a two-ton metal vehicle and squishing a defenseless animal under the tires, said Hal Herzog, a Western Carolina University psychology professor."

Man Mistaken For Escaped Mental Patient Drugged And Locked Up

"Police were called to help locate the patient and several days later, a man with the same description of the escapee was brought back to Graylands[Mental Hospital] by police where he was wrongly identified by hospital staff as the runaway patient.

The man was subsequently given a batch of antipsychotic drugs but it caused an adverse reaction and he was treated overnight in hospital.

The “real” missing patient eventually returned to Graylands."

The Graylands Mental Hospital,  the name sounds like something out of a bad slasher novel. :)  Hit it Dr. Demento!!!

And I'll be happy to see those nice young men
In their clean white coats and
They're coming to take me away ha ha!

To the happy home
With flowers and trees and chirping birds
And basket weavers who sit and smile
And twiddle their thumbs and toes and
They're coming to take me away ha ha!

Walmart Madness #56! Tied And Blindfolded Children - Followup Story

 Aldofo and Deborah Gomez

      I first blogged this story on June 15, 2012 [ ] about the two blindfolded and tied up children found in a Lawrence Kansas Walmart parking lot.  The parents have been in jail since then and have recently entered a plea of "no contest" to the charges against them.  The children have been safe in protective custody.

     "Adolfo Gomez is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 8. His lawyer and prosecutors said they would recommend he be sentenced to 30 months in prison.
"I think the recommendations that are on the record are a fair and equitable resolution," Gomez's attorney, Skip Griffey, said after the hearing.
     Prosecutors recommended that Deborah Gomez be sentenced to a year of probation. Her lawyer, Angela Keck, said Gomez decided to plead no contest because she did not want her children to have to testify.
     "She wanted to make sure her kids didn't have to go through the trauma" of a trial, Keck said earlier this month."

If You Smoke Pot, Get The Munchies, And Run Out Of Gas Don't Do This:

The residents said they awoke to Daniel Bailey knocking on a bedroom door and walked out to see him sitting on the stairs playing with their cat. After telling Bailey to get out, the residents found the Christmas tree and other lights had been turned on, candles were lit and the TV turned on in the living room.
"A coffee cake that had been inside a cabinet was [found] half-eaten out on the counter," a deputy reported.
It also appeared Bailey had played a round of darts on the board in the garage and taken gas caps off the lawn mower and three vehicles.
Bailey reportedly allowed deputies to search his Chevrolet Malibu, which was indeed out of gas.
But inside police found two cans of beer, a can of soda, two frozen dinners, three frozen pizzas, a box of Hot Pockets and a box of mozzarella sticks that had reportedly been taken from the freezer inside. The residents did not claim the two glass marijuana pipes that police found in Bailey's car.

Woman Harassed By Pigeon Seeks Help From Police

COO COO!  I'll get YOU!

 The exasperated woman told officers on Monday that the blue-grey pigeon had been a constant presence at her side for the past three weeks. She said the "strange bird" had been hanging round in her garden or on her terrace constantly.

 The woman claimed that every time she opened the door, the seemingly intelligent pigeon would immediately fly into the house. Her gentle attempts to persuade her unwanted guest to leave proved fruitless, as did her grandson's deployment of his water pistol.

 When it did get in, the stubborn animal would "leave traces that no good housewife would want in her home," the police report said.

Guards Apply Hot Sauce To Inmates Balls In America!

<--- A photo of what habanero laced balls may look like.

DISCLAIMER!  Under no circumstances may any inmate in an American "penal" institution be given access to anything that can be used as a weapon,  habanero sauce certainly  fits the bill and has been blacklisted from prisons for years!  It had to have been the guards providing it to the inmates,  then something went sour.

In July, six inmates from Sampson sent a hand-written letter to the U.S. District Court in Greensboro complaining that staff had forced them to perform numerous humiliating acts for the entertainment of guards, including stripping nude and pretending to have sex. The medium-security facility houses about 500 male inmates in Clinton, which is about 60 miles southeast of Raleigh.
The inmates also reported being forced to gulp a super-hot "Exotic Hot Sauce" purchased off the Internet and slather it on their testicles, as well as being forced to grab and kiss wild snakes while working on a road crew and throwing captured bunnies in to oncoming traffic.
Those who performed for the guards were rewarded with preferential work assignments, food, cigarettes and beer, the inmates alleged. Both tobacco and alcohol are banned in North Carolina's prisons.
