You probably already guessed that the country in question is not the United States. The country is Turkey.  As reported by todayszaman.com:

The case was opened by former Justice and Development Party (AK Party) deputy and lawyer Süleyman Sarıbaş. In a leaked recording of a phone call that was made as part of the corruption investigation, Cengiz, of Cengiz Holding, which has received lucrative state tender contracts, such as for the third airport, was heard using extremely vulgar language with reference to the nation and the public. Sarıbaş sued Cengiz for TL 10,000 over the businessman’s comment to his friend, “We will f–k this nation,” referring to the people of Turkey. An İstanbul court on Tuesday decided Cengiz must pay TL 8, 000 in compensation.

Sarıbaş has promised to use the money awarded in the lawsuit to sponsor a new ablution area and bathroom for the mosque in his hometown.
“I went to the mosque in my village in December. The ablution room and bathrooms were in very bad condition. I called on the imam and the villagers and said that once summer comes, I will have new ones made. The project plan was prepared the other day, and now his [Cengiz’s] money will go where it belongs,” Sarıbaş said.

Following the court decision, Sarıbaş also said that any citizen could sue Cengiz for his profanity targeting the nation in order to punish that kind of mentality.

Any citizen can sue? It sounds more like “this nation” is going to “f–k” him! Here’s the source.

Although The Juice has strong opinions, you are unlikely to meet anyone with the conviction of this Idahoan. Under these circumstances, this is not a good thing. As reported by ktvb.com

A Boise woman is facing felony charges after police say she attacked a Jewish acquaintance, stomping on the woman’s neck as part of a bizarre bid to convert her to Christianity.

Margurite Dawn Haragan, 58, has been charged with two counts of malicious harassment in an attack police have labeled a hate crime.

Prosecutors say the incident started when Haragan showed up at the victim’s home Feb. 5. It’s not clear how the two women know each other.

“The defendant was banging on the front window yelling at her that she better believe in Jesus and she was not going to leave until she did believe in Jesus,” Ada County Prosecutor Dave Rothcheck said. He said the victim, identified in court only as “A.G.,” opened her door to tell Haragan to leave and to write down her license plate number.

That’s when the suspect slapped her in the face and dragged her to the ground by her hair, Roscheck said.

“The defendant began kicking the victim in the stomach and thigh area,” he said. “During this time the defendant was screaming at the victim that she better accept Jesus or she would not let up.”

Prosecutors say Haragan stepped onto A.G.’s neck as she lay on the ground, pressing down with her foot and pulling up on the woman’s head and hair. Eventually, the woman said she would become a Christian in an attempt to placate her attacker, Roscheck said, and Haragan let her go.

Yikes. You’ll find the source, and Ms. Haragan’s mug shot, by clicking here.

panty panties

In describing this woman as the “best panty thief ever,” The Juice is talking volume. But volume isn’t everything. You know how athletes are often characterized by their level of field awareness? Well, this woman has absolutely NO camera awareness, which will probably lead to her apprehension. As reported by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

A woman pilfered 785 pairs of panties at the Victoria’s Secret at Lenox Square Mall on Saturday, Officer Ralph Woolfolk said Thursday.

The suspected thief put the panties in three shopping bags in a raid on the store lasting two hours and absconded, Woolfolk said.

Retail for the panties was estimated at more than $10,000.

Atlanta detectives hope the public can help and have released surveillance photos of the suspect, described as a black woman wearing a red hat, a white and black T-shirt, a black jacket, blue jeans, and red and white tennis shoes.

Several things come to mind. Two hours, and no store employees noticed anything unusual? 785 pairs of panties worth over $10,000 fit in those 3 bags? Clearly the cost of the fabric is not a factor in determining the cost of the panties.  Or perhaps there is an inverse relationship between the amount of fabric used and the cost.  Click here for the source, which includes multiple photos of Ms. X in action.

Regular Juice readers know that an inmate having a cell phone is not an uncommon occurrence. If you’re wondering how the inmates get them, The Juice would wager that very, very, very few get them this way. As reported by The Mirror:

Police found 10 crossbow bolts, 18 mobile phones, SIM cards and the bow that had been left in a weapons case just 100-metres from the prison fence.

Yup, a crossbow!

A modern day William Tell was nicked by prison police as he tried to use a crossbow to fire illicit mobile phones into a jail for inmates to use.

Cornelius Bazarov, 21, was seized with 18 mobiles, spare batteries and earpieces strapped to the end of crossbow bolts with gaffer tape.

How was he caught?

…  a wall guard at the jail in the town of Tavda in southern Russia’s Sverdlovsk Oblast noticed someone moving through the trees at 1:50am and hit the alarm button.

Bazarov was arrested stumbling through the undergrowth, but it was not until the next morning that police found 10 crossbow bolts, the phones, SIM cards and the bow that had been left in a weapons case just 100 metres from the prison fence.

Just how bad is the phone problem?

Prison spokesman Daniel Krylov said: “Phones are almost as bad as drugs in prisons.

“When inmates get their hands on them they have access to their criminal networks and can even commit crimes while they’re safely in here with an alibi.

“They use them to order drugs, blackmail staff, threaten other inmates or even organise revenge on people who put them there in the first place.

“We arrested the man found in the forest outside the prison walls and he is now facing jail time himself.”

suitcase travel airport woman

Sure, maybe you get 2-for-1 occasionally. Hell, maybe you go to a super sale now and again, and with multiple markdowns, get something for 90% off the original price. But you will never, ever get the deals this woman gets when she travels. Via kstp tv (Minneapolis, Minnesota):

ABC News reports “serial stowaway” Marilyn Jean Hartman [age 63] was arrested Monday in Florida. She’s accused of posing as a guest and checking into a resort property after boarding a flight to Jacksonville International Airport without a boarding pass.

Two questions: How the hell do you get through security without a boarding pass? How the hell do you get on the plane without a boarding pass?

After the flight landed in Florida, Hartman took a shuttle to the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort, where she checked in under a false name, according to a Nassau County Sheriff’s Office.

When the actual guest arrived, Hartman disappeared. Security found her the next day in a room that was being renovated, ABC News reports.

Working all the angles! The charges?

Hartman is charged with felony fraud and misdemeanor trespassing.

You probably already guessed that this was not her first rodeo.

Hartman has been arrested numerous times for similar offenses in previous years, including three arrests in August 2014.

Here’s the source, which includes a photo of Ms. Hartman.

It’s very common for the law to have to catch up with technology. But what if the crime is something you just wouldn’t consider? This is such a case, as reported by The Chicago Tribune.

Jamarcus Applewhite was nearly finished with an eight-hour day hauling cars to Wisconsin early Thursday morning when he thought he popped a tire on the Bishop Ford Freeway just minutes from his destination.

Applewhite, 34, pulled his truck and trailer off to the side of the road near Sibley in Calumet City and got out to inspect the damage.

So something was wrong with his truck? Not exactly.

“I felt a lot of shaking,” Applewhite said. “I got out and was looking down, checking the tires when I hear an engine running … and I look and see a truck up there.”

Shazam! How’d that happen?

The pickup truck had run up the ramp of Applewhite’s empty car carrier as the vehicles sped down the highway. The pickup stopped just feet from the cab.

As Applewhite stood by the trailer, looking up, the driver leaned out and asked, “Can we pull over?”

“I’m like, ‘We are pulled over,’ ” Applewhite said.

Applewhite said he didn’t know how to get the driver and his truck off the carrier, so he called the state police.

There’s no mention of the gent being a stuntman, but it sounds like he could be.

Applewhite figures the driver must have been going very fast. Applewhite had been driving about 55 mph and didn’t see the pickup approaching.

He said a regular car could not have made it up the carrier’s ramp, but the pickup truck’s tires were big enough. If one of the carrier’s decks hadn’t been tilted, Applewhite said, the pickup could have crashed into his cab or flown right over it.

The charges?

He was cited with improper lane usage and failure to reduce speed, an Illinois State Police master sergeant said Thursday afternoon. More details were not released, pending investigation of the accident.

Like The Juice said, there are some things lawmakers just have no reason to consider. Here’s the source, with a photo of the trucks.

Yes, of course you’ve heard of helicopter moms. But what about helicopter dads? They don’t get a lot of ink. This gent is the exception! As reported by The Guardian

An Italian father who forced his teenage daughters to ski competitively and eat a macrobiotic diet because he was concerned they were too fat has been found guilty of abuse and sentenced to nine months in prison.

The unusual case in Turin may set a precedent in how Italian courts define psychological abuse of children. There are no similar cases of abuse on record.

The case started in 2011 when the two teenage girls – one is now an adult – complained to their mother that “Daddy treats us badly” and said they no longer wanted to visit their father. The parents are separated.

The 53-year-old father, who has not been named in press reports but has been described as a wealthy individual, has said he became worried about his daughters’ health when he saw pictures of them on Facebook. He said he encouraged them to ski and to eat a macrobiotic diet, avoiding processed and otherwise refined foods, out of a normal level of parental concern.

But the mother of the teenagers and the prosecutor in the case painted a different picture, of constant pressure and taunting by the father of his daughters.

Hey, just like homeowners associations, all clubs have rules. The Mile High Club is no exception, and this mischievousness doesn’t cut the mustard. As reported by The Prince George Citizen (Halifax, Nova Scotia):

A flight attendant told the trial of a woman accused of committing an indecent act on a Toronto-to-Halifax flight that she and a man used a coat to cover their laps to fondle each other.

That’s a different club, right? Anyway …

The trial for 25-year-old Alicia Elizabeth Lander got underway Wednesday at Dartmouth provincial court.

Lander has pleaded not guilty to committing indecent acts, assaulting a police officer, committing an act of mischief and causing a disturbance at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport last Jan. 24.

John Dunn, who was service director for Air Canada Flight 610, testified for the Crown that Lander had asked if she could change seats to sit with her friend after boarding the plane in Toronto.

Dunn said about an hour into the flight, a passenger had told him the people sitting in 14A and 14B were about to join the “Mile High Club.”

He testified that he approached Lander and the man and found them with a jacket over their laps but said he could tell what was happening underneath.

He said he could see Lander’s thighs and pink thong.

“Her pants were down around her ankles,” said Dunn. “I said, ‘I want you to stop this now. It’s inappropriate.'”

Dunn said Lander’s hand was in the area of the man’s crotch making an up-and-down motion.

He said he asked Lander to get dressed and she eventually pulled up her pants, although she initially denied not being clothed.

Dunn said Lander was then asked to go back to the seat she was originally assigned in row 26, where she slept for the remainder of the flight.

He said he notified the captain of the incident, who arranged to have RCMP officers meet them at the gate.

Jason George Chase, 39, was also charged with committing an indecent act in connection with the same incident and had originally pleaded not guilty, but changed his plea to guilty on Wednesday.

Are you really going to stand there and claim that you booted that vehicle? Uh-huh. Well, then where’s the boot? And the vehicle? As reported by the Brooklyn Paper Police Blotter:

84th Precinct – Brooklyn Heights–DUMBO–Boerum Hill–Downtown

A scofflaw managed to remove his car from Dean Street on Dec. 26, despite the city’s boot, according to cops.

A traffic officer reported that he placed a boot on a Chevy Trailblazer at 3:52 pm, while it was parked between Court Street and Boerum Place. He returned at 6:30 pm to remove the boot so a tow truck could take the vehicle, but the car and boot were already gone, cops said. The police report is for the stolen boot, which cops value at $1,200.

Someone’s going back to booting school!

The Juice will wager you have not encountered a shoplifter like this woman. As reported by by wtsp.com:

Guapiles, Costa Rica  – Captured on video, a woman shocked workers by stealing a flat screen TV by stuffing it up her dress, between her legs.

The woman simply walked into the store, picked up the packaged TV, placed it between her legs and walked out along with an accomplice.

According to reports, it all happened in 13 seconds:

“She did it so quickly no one had time to notice or react,” said the shop assistant.

Yikes! Here’s the source, which includes the video.
