courthouse

Sure, there are many possible explanations. But The Juice is going with this one:  Someone had a REALLY bad day in court at some point in his or her life. As reported by WISC TV (at channel3000.com):

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin said changes are needed to protect employees at the City-County Building after Madison municipal court workers arrived at work Wednesday morning to find one of the courtroom walls covered with excrement.

Kelly McConnell, a judicial support clerk, sent an email and photo to Soglin, Dane County Executive Joe Parisi, Madison Police Chief Mike Koval and many other public officials detailing her frustrations.

“So THIS was found in the courtroom this morning as we were trying to get ready for court!” McConnell wrote. “Someone has been in the courtroom, AGAIN, and defecated in the courtroom itself. When will SOMEONE do something about what is going on in this building???!!!”

Yikes! You can read more, and see a video, here.

So maybe that’s a little bit of hyperbole. Still, who would steal the baby Jesus? And why, in reporting about the theft, would anyone capitalize the word “Baby”? In any event, as reported by NJ Advance Media for nj.com:

A Rockaway Township husband and wife say they are “heartbroken” after a Baby Jesus was stolen from a nativity scene on their front lawn.

But Elaine and Mark Romito haven’t given up on retrieving the item that has graced the front of their home at 8 Daniel St. during the Christmas season for the past 22 years.

The couple is asking for help from the public in the hope that Baby Jesus will be returned.

What, are Joseph and Mary chopped liver?

You can read a lot more about this, and see a photo of the nativity scene, here.

mother daughter bonding

Shared experiences among a mother and her daughter can be great. Or not. This definitely falls in the latter category. Per The New Hampshire Union Leader:

According to Manchester police Sgt. Brian O’Keefe, at 7:30 a.m. Friday multiple patrol units responded to 81 Ashland St. to investigate a report of a large fight and spoke with two victims, a 38-year-old mother and her daughter, 18.

The mother, whose name was not released, told police she was operating her motor vehicle in the area of Lowell and Ashland streets when two females refused to exit the road while riding bicycles. According to police, a brief argument ensued and the mother exited her vehicle and confronted the two bike riders.

Rule #1, don’t confront someone unless you’re prepared for the confrontation.

Police say this sparked what O’Keefe termed a “physical altercation” between the mother, her daughter and the two women, identified as Samantha Foss, 24, and Lindsey Paglieroni, 32, both of Manchester.

During the altercation, Foss allegedly stabbed the mother, causing a laceration to left arm. Foss then allegedly stabbed the woman’s daughter in the back of her neck. Both women were transported to the Elliot Hospital, where they were treated for non-life threatening injuries and released.

Should have just kept on driving.

Foss was arrested on charges of first degree assault, falsifying physical evidence and being a convicted felon for possessing a weapon after being previously convicted of a felony level offense. She is scheduled to be arraigned in the 9th Circuit Court in Manchester on Monday.

phone text cell mobile texting

Normally it would be nice for a father to text his daughter. Here, not so much. As reported by wowt.com:

The Nebraska Supreme Court on Friday reversed a lower court’s issuance of a domestic abuse protection order for a 16-year-old girl against her father, saying his vulgar, obscenity-laced texts did not constitute abuse.

The decision came in the case of man listed in the opinion as “William N.” Court records indicate that the girl’s mother sought a domestic abuse protection order for her daughter earlier this year after the father sent the girl texts calling the girl, her boyfriend and her mother vulgar names.

A Valley County judge issued the protection order and William N. appealed. The state’s high court said that since he had not threatened to harm the teen, the lower court was wrong to issue a domestic abuse protection order.

That’s just beyond uncool. The man is lucky his daughter is a minor or the world would know his name. Here’s the source.

The Juice has never heard of anything happening like this in the United States nor does he expect to, ever.  However, this was in India, as reported at dnaIndia.com:

A 24-year-old man allegedly slapped actress and model Gauhar Khan and assaulted her at the sets of a musical reality show, India’s Raw Star, on Sunday. The man was allegedly against her wearing short clothes.

The incident happened on Sunday evening when Khan, the host of the show, was shooting for its grand finale episode. According to the police, a member of the audience, Akil Malik, 24, walked up to the stage, allegedly misbehaved with her and then slapped her. The incident happened at Studio number 9, Filmcity in Goregaon East.

A police officer said, “Malik told the actress that he was against her wearing short clothes before slapping her. He touched her inappropriately as well. Following this, guards deployed at the show intervened and stopped him. He was immediately handed over to the police. We took him in custody and have sent him for medical examination. He will be arrested soon.”

At the time of going to press, the Aarey Colony police was in the process of registering a case under sections 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 354 (assault or criminal force on woman with intent to outrage her modesty) under the Indian Penal Code. “We will be taking statements from the actress. Currently we are interrogating the accused. Investigations are on,” said Punjabrao Ugale, DCP of Zone 12.

It’s no joke. A court in India has temporarily banned Comedy Central. As reported by ndtv.com:

Entertainment channel Comedy Central has gone off-air for at least five days after the government found its shows having “obscene” and “vulgar” dialogues besides being derogatory to women.

The Delhi High Court had on Monday upheld the Centre’s decision to stop the channel’s transmission for 10 days and also imposed a fine of Rs. 20,000 payable to the Centre.

“We have carefully perused the contents of the two programmes to which objection has been taken and having gone through the same, are of the opinion that the matter requires no interference.

“The appellant is engaged in a business/enterprise which owing to its mass appeal/base has the potential of influencing the thought, behaviour and conduct of the citizens, especially the future citizens of this country,” the court had said dismissing the plea of Viacom 18, which owns the channel.

Not cool at all. Here’s the source.

happy birthday

To some folks birthdays are just another day. To others, they are a really big deal. This gent is definitely in the latter group.  As reported by The Gainesville Sun:

James E. Irving Jr., 44, got into a fight with his live-in girlfriend over his birthday present and preferred celebratory breakfast, according to a Gainesville Police Department booking report and information provided by GPD spokesman Officer Ben Tobias. Irving wanted pancakes and instead got waffles.

Oh no you didn’t just serve me waffles!

To express his disdain, Irving poked his girlfriend in the eye, which prompted a call to the Police Department, the report states. Irving was handcuffed and taken to the Alachua County jail on a misdemeanor battery charge.

In case you’re wondering …

On Monday morning, jail staff served inmates a breakfast of fruit, grits, sausage, bread and butter, according to Sgt. Becky Butscher, an Alachua County sheriff’s spokeswoman.

beer

Say it ain’t so! Not at the home of the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Sounders! Well, according to komonews.com (Seattle), it appears to be so.

The beer at the center of Seattle sports universe [CenturyLink Field] appears to be watered down.

In two different undercover trips, the Problem Solvers collected six samples of draft beer from concession stands for a Seahawks and Sounders game. We wanted to see if the beers had a higher or lower alcohol content.

We worked with IEH Labs in Seattle and followed their strict instructions, using small vials to hold a few ounces of beer and then keeping them cool, either in a refrigerator inside bags packed with ice.

We dropped off the samples and within a few days we had our answers with the six beers we tested.

The results? Not good. Click hear to see them, and the source.

cell phone charger mobile

They break. They get lost. You want one for your car, your office, another room in your apartment or house.  But even in your darkest, lowest-phone-charge hour, you wouldn’t do this. As reported in the police blotter for the 62nd Precinct (Bensonhurst—Bath Beach) at brooklynpaper.com:

A brute beat a woman over the head and stole her cellphone charger on Bay 37th Street on Oct. 20, according to NYPD officials.

The woman was walking between 86th Street and Benson Avenue in Gravesend at 10:30 pm when the galoot ran up behind her, struck her in the back of the head, and snatched the charger from her pocket, police said.

To quote Fairfax (James Coburn) from the movie “Payback” (an overlooked, underrated flick): “Man, that’s just mean.”

Hey, the guy is an entrepreneur. You’re going to bust him for renting houses? Well, yes. As reported by cleveland.com:

Danny Heaggans [age 33] illegally gained access to at least four vacant, abandoned or foreclosed homes [on Bedford, Ohio] and installed locks to make it look like he had legitimate access, police said.

Heaggans made repairs and showed the properties to people looking to rent a house, according to police.

Investigators found that Heaggans presented lease agreements to the prospective renters and collected security deposits and one month’s rent.

Police think Heaggans is connected to several more housing scams in Cuyahoga County.

Interesting, but totally uncool. Here’s the source, including a mug shot.
