CRIME BLOTTER

I can't resist talking about the crime column in the local paper. It's the first thing I turn to every morning, and today we have several strange items.

There was the usual:

$3000 trailer stolen, along with its contents worth $2000.

Someone arrested for taking food worth $13.

A man arrested for stuffing merchandise into his pockets. The attempted theft led to a confrontation with police in the store. He resisted arrest and got tasered. For $15 worth of goods.

More interesting items included this one:

Two women had an argument via FaceBook that led to one woman going over to the other woman's house. Some kind of physical confrontation occurred. Both women reported being punched in the face by the other. Looks like words really can hurt you!

And the last:

A man reported his girlfriend kicked him in the head. Seems he suspected she'd stolen $40 worth of his prescription drugs. When he went for her purse to search, she kicked him with her foot. Since the foot was in a temporary cast, I suspect it hurt!

Ah, another busy day for our crime reporters! Love our local newspaper!

  1. Fifteen dollars of merchandise. He resists arrests for fifteen bucks in stolen goods.

    Sigh. Facepalm. Humanity, thou hast dismayed me yet again.

    1. You're welcome, Norma! I think everyone should have a crime blotter section in their local paper!
