This week, I would guess you have plenty of chit chat on that case alone. Still there were stories that were in the lesser read pages of the newspapers.
One and a Two and a Three
Richards was charged with bank robbery after police followed a trail of snowy footprints directly to Mr. Richard's home. Money recovered from his apartment was linked to the bank robbery in Fraser, north of Detroit.
The Michigan Department of Corrections tells The Detroit News that prisons allow some pornographic material, though it's banned at the jail. The American Civil Liberties Union says prisons have a lot more leeway than jails have.
Richards pleaded guilty. Sentencing is Aug. 2.
So, it looks like the quick and easy answer here is just send Mr. Richards to a Michigan prison instead of keeping him at the jail. Win, Win, Win. That is a three base run. The lawsuit goes away, Mr. Richards will have access to his "pursuit of porn" that he deems is his civil right, and all of us win with that idiot being in prison. Let's just call that a home run!
The Fifth Time is the Charm
A South Carolina man was struck by lightening on Monday. What makes this strike unusual is that Melvin Roberts had been struck 5 previous times.
Melvin does think that maybe his luck is changing. He believes that the lightening strikes parallel his love life.
He has been married 5 times. Because he isn't leaving this wife he believes that there is a change in the air.
I can't say that I understand Melvin's logic here. Five wives, six strikes, I would be keeping an eye for a wife #5 going MIA. I would guess this might not be easy for Melvin, though. Seemingly he doesn't have enough sense to come in out of the rain.
Teen versus train
Two Iowa Interstate Railroad engineers saw something laying between the rails before 11 PM. When they realized it was a person they attempted to pull the emergency brake but not before running over the person. The engine and first car had already rolled over the person that was in fact Christian.
The boy was transported to a Des Moines hospital but suffered only bruises and cuts.
The teen is being charged with public intoxication and trespass charges. That is what you call dumb luck. Really to be totally succinct, I would call that dumb ass luck. If I would ever get drunk enough that I wake up with a train parked over me and can't remember how I got there, I would take it as a sign that perhaps, I have a problem.
Oh Baby You are Such a Doll
Police say a man was found to have broken into a sex shop in Woodbridge, Virginia. Justin Dale Little Jim (yes that is his name(s) broke into MVC Late Night adult store on Tuesday morning. He was found in a closet doing something short of romantic with a blow up doll.
He was charged with burglary, grand larceny, and felony destruction.
Well, Justin Dale multiple name moron. First it is clearly the name of the joint is MVC Late Night so you were going against the grain by breaking in during the day. Second, is that how you romance the ladies? In a closet? Really.... a real charmer aren't you?
Aren't Public Restrooms Open to the Public?
A female magistrate in a Broward County, FL Court walked into a men's restroom and took a picture of a man using the urinal. Using a cellphone camera, Rhonda Hollander, snapped a photo of the man at the West Regional Courthouse in Plantation. She, snapped another picture of a second man entering the restroom.
A female deputy confronted the potty photography and demanded the suspect turn over the cell phone. Ms. Hollander insisted that the restroom is a "public restroom" so taking pictures was within her rights.
The female deputy pointed her finger at the errant picture taker and insisted that she quit taking pictures. The suspect responded by attempting to bite the officer's finger.
Interesting people get hired in Broward County. I would bet the deputy is reluctant to point in the future. What carries the greater charge, attempting to bite the finger of an officer or taking a lewd picture?
The Good for the Day...Great weather and a lot to see in DC as we are still vacationing here.
The Bad for the Day...HOT, HOT, HOT weather.
The Weird for the Day...Nothing to do with the post today. I just happened to see this mushroom house went on the market for 1.1 Million. Anyone want to live in a mushroom.
