[News] A Carousel of Losers

Thomas Meehan, 59, drove to the State Patrol office in Tacoma, Wash., to register his car, as required by law, but you'd think he would've sobered up first. KIRO-TV (Seattle)

A Brookeville, Ind., couple (Lloyd Conn, 34, and Tiffany Hollins, 21), who are registered with the local parole office and theoretically know they can be visited at any time, were visited Monday (and troopers found a gun, a meth lab, and five pickup-truckloads of what they suspect are stolen goods). Kentucky Post

Apparently Walter Aaron, 26, couldn't think of a better way to pick up quick money than to steal an excavator from a construction site and smash through a SunTrust bank in Atlanta. (He was still behind the wheel when cops arrived.) WGCL-TV (Atlanta)

Recurring: Two men in Austin, Minn., called police to report that someone broke in and stole their marijuana (along with smoking devices that had "sentimental value"). They can't be charged with a crime, though, because, well, the thief completely cleaned 'em out. Post-Bulletin (Rochester, Minn.)

Recurring: Eric Fortune, 19, Denmark Township, Ohio, goaded his stepbrother to shoot him in the leg so he could see what it felt like. (It hurt a lot; he started crying.) Star Beacon (Ashtabula)

Here's a chance for Jury Nullification: Could it really be a crime that a woman happens to be completely naked below the waist in public as she is picking up dog litter? Oughtn't we to free Susan Bell? Portsmouth Herald [LINK FIXED]

Meehan I don't know about sobering up before facing a bureaucratic challenge.

Lloyd & Tiffany I'll beat Maxx to it today, "One crime at a time."

Walter Refer to comments above.

Austin, Minn. Time to buy a lottery ticket guys! You're luck is running true.

Eric This is just too dumb to contemplate this late in the day. I'll look at it again tomorrow AM after my coffee kicks in.

Jury Duty <u>GUILTY</u> She really should be required to wear a bursa and move to Chattanooga.

"bursa" should be "burka"
Now I'm off for my weekly typing lesson.

Jury Duty - Her face appears to be too small for her head.

Fortune - No time like the present.

Jury Duty - No time like the present. No matter your state of dress. Guilty!!

Kay, if I was on the case I think it would have taken a lot longer than a month to build up the courage to look closely enough to the suspect to make a first hand identification. SHUDDER :ahhh:

Jury Duty: What crime does the neighbor get charged with? They bothered to look close enough and long enough to determine she didn't have on britches?

If it had been Angelina Jolie, I'd say Not Guilty ... but this woman? Indecent Exposure doesn't even come close.
