All Tricks No Treat
A 17 year old Atlanta boy is dead after he egged a Mercedes on Halloween night. The boy was out goofing off with friends when they decided to egg cars passing on their block. The owner of the Mercedes got out of the car and fired 10 shots at the boy, hitting him in the head and neck as he tried to run away. The owner of the Mercedes then tried to flee the scene but was later captured by police. The boy died on the way to the hospital.
Sometimes stuff is funny and then sometimes it isn’t. Egging a car is a harmless prank but these days people get so worked up over everything. I’m not saying that the boy was right for vandalizing someone’s property, but really, egging a car (that can be washed) versus getting shot in the neck? Somehow the two don’t equate.
More Tricks Still No Treat
A newlywed Atlanta woman is dead after a Halloween party. Atlanta police were called and notified of shots fired. When they arrived they found the woman dead of multiple gunshot wounds. Later police received a report of a naked man wandering through a park. The man turned out to be the woman’s brand new husband. After some questioning, the man was charged with the woman’s murder; however, there is no motive at this time.
Well, this is a little bizarre. You just got married and then you decide to kill your wife then wander around the neighbourhood butt ass naked. Maybe he was setting up his psychiatric defense, or maybe he really is crazy. Maybe he had a problem with her going to a Hallowe’en party and not inviting him. I know I shouldn’t make fun of it, but these new stories never really give you all the information so sometimes you just have to make up your own conclusion.
Here’s Your Treat
Maryland State Police arrested a man Halloween night because he was wearing nothing but a diaper and cursing at people while he trick-or-treated. The man was said to be cursing at children and adults in an attempt to get them candy. No word on if he was drunk or high at the time, or just mentally ill.
And they didn’t say why he had on a diaper. Was he posing as a baby for Halloween? Or was the diaper part of his lunatic costume?
Who Said Civility Is Dead?
North Carolina police have arrested two men after they burgled a home and robbed the family of $5000 worth of electronics and other goods. The super geniuses had the nerve to leave several thank you notes. One note simply said: “Thanks,” and another note said, “Thanks. We love the stuff we got.” These morons, who already had criminal records, were found from their fingerprints on the thank you notes. Among the stolen items were a box of corn dogs, some chicken and beer.
What can even be said about such stupidity? Nothing. Moving on.
Congratulations, It’s Illegal Drugs!
Cincinnati prison guards discovered that one of their pregnant inmates wasn’t just carrying a baby, but something else as well. The woman was being prepped for a Cesarean section when nurses discovered 15 pills stuff up her vagina. The woman was arrested the day before for stealing a computer from Wal-Mart. Generally, this particular prison does not do routine cavity searches.
Hmm, so unless you are incapacitated, wouldn’t you be like, “Uh, before we get started, can I go to the bathroom?” so you can get rid of the stuff you have packed up your cooch? This is all quite bizarre. You’re about to have a baby and you know what part of the body that includes, right? Right? I hope. Apparently not because they found the drugs anyway. I mean, just because you are having a Cesarean, that doesn’t mean anything. But you know what, let’s forget about that for a moment, was she actually planning on USING the pills she had up there????
Brother, Can You Give Me a Ride?
California police are searching for a man who robbed a bank and then ran out into the street asking people for a getaway ride. The man entered a bank and demanded $20 and $100 bills from the teller. When she failed to move as quickly as he wanted, he jumped up on the counter and snatched the money from her. He then ran out onto the street and he realized that he had no way of getting away from the robbery, so he offered $1000 to anybody who would help him escape to Santa Cruz.
Apparently he was able to get someone to take him up on the offer because police are still searching for the man. They have no idea where he is. What kind of genius sets up a bank robbery but then doesn’t set up a way to get out?
