clothes%20make%20the%20man.jpg

“Clothes make the man” may be less true now than it used to be. But, unfortunately for this gent, his clothes “made” him, just not in a good way. As reported at noladefender.com:

Memorial T-shirts help families grieve and remember their loved ones when tragedy strikes. But in one recent homicide case, a shirt depicting one man lost to violence also helped police track down a suspect in another case. After recognizing his cousin in a T-shirt caught on video, police arrested 26-year-old Dale Lambert Monday for a Treme murder dating back to March.

If you’re going to commit a crime, it’s generally not a good idea to wear clothing that essentially has your name and address on it.

Lambert was arrested about 9 a.m. Monday in the Columbia Parc neighborhood of the 7th Ward for allegedly killing Bernard Santiago, 30, on March 22 in the 2100 block of Saint Ann St. A second man was also injured after being shot in the ankle during the incident, police said.

Of course, it wouldn’t have mattered if he hadn’t been seen in the shirt…

Police said homicide detective Michael McCleery broke the case after getting video of the incident. Footage shows that the gunman in the incident is wearing a custom-made T-shirt that says “R.I.P,” and depicted a man who was killed in a separate murder. McCleery was able to identify the person being remembered on the shirt as Lambert’s cousin, who was killed several months earlier, police said. McCleery obtained an arrest warrant after conducting further interviews.

Lambert was booked on Second Degree Murder and Aggravated Assault charges. Police said Lambert has previously been arrested on a bevy of charges including Aggravated Assault, Possession of Valium, and a variety of other drug and gun chrages.

If you throw something in the trash, and someone then takes it from the trash, is that stealing? OF COURSE NOT! Well, there’s a resident of New York who would disagree. As reported by BeeNews.com (New York):

A Panama Lane resident reported garbage had been stolen from in front of the house for the fourth time in eight months.

After it rains, do you call the cops and say your neighbor is stealing your run-off water? It’s garbage! You don’t want it? Why do you care! Aargh!

Maybe you’ve left your car in a lot overnight, figuring you would just eat the charge and move on. You won’t believe how long this woman left her car in a parking lot. As reported by local.de:

A woman who left her car in a parking lot for nine years escaped with a fine of €7,000 (about $9,000 US), instead of the nearly €70,000 (about $90,000 US) she would owe if she had been charged the standard €20 ($26 US) per day, it was reported this week.

Nine years? Two questions: Why? and Why? As to the second question:

The car park operator appears to have made a conscious decision to hold out on issuing the fine. “The lady isn’t insolvent. She has a job and money,” managing director of the Bavaria Parkgaragen company Claus Schnell said, by way of an explanation for not taking action sooner.

While Schnell acknowledged that it was unusual for a person not to collect their car, he said “such cases occur from time to time.” His operating company oversees 22 garages with a total of 12,226 parking spots.

Okay, as for the first question – why would she leave her car there for 9 years? – don’t know! Here’s the source.

Although it’s dangerous to handle explosives for a living, a lot of these folks would probably prefer dealing with bombs than having to do what South Lake Tahoe, California Explosive Ordinance Team members recently did. What was that? Just remember that this is posted in the “Gross” category. As reported in the Tahoe Daily Tribune:

The incident began about 4:30 a.m. when a California Highway Patrol officer contacted Steven Ferrini, 60, in a “No Parking” zone on Highway 89 near Luther Pass, to a CHP report.

The officer arrested the man after allegedly finding what was believed to be methamphetamine.

During a subsequent search, officers found “a suspicious wire, with an on/off switch” in the man’s front left pocket leading to his anal cavity, to the report.

Uh oh.

Officers planned to have the device removed by medical personnel at Barton Memorial Hospital, but during an interview with the man at the CHP office, “the subject began to explain his knowledge of explosives and bomb-making,” according to the report.

Red alert!

The man’s statements caused officers to become suspicious. They contacted the El Dorado County Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team and evacuated the office around 5:45 a.m.

Try to imagine how that call went. “Um, bomb squad, there may be a bomb in this guy’s … Can you send some people over?”

About 9 a.m., “the EOD team rendered the device safe and determined it was not an explosive device. The vibrator was subsequently removed and placed into property,” according to the report.

The man was booked into El Dorado County Jail in South Lake Tahoe on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance.

In the US, with our “zero tolerance” policies for so many things, this kid would have been suspended. Period. Fortunately for him, the boy resides in the UK. As reported at Scotsman.com:

Bomb disposal experts were called to a school in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire this morning amid reports that a pupil had brought a hand grenade into the building.

The pupil at Hamilton Grammar School brought the decommisioned device to class as part of a history project.

Explosive Ordnance Disposal officers called at the school shortly after 9:00am, and ascertained that the grenade posed no threat.

A spokeswoman for South Lanarkshire council described the grenade as a “presentation piece”, owned by the pupil’s grandfather.

The spokeswoman added: “Police were called who went to the school with bomb disposal experts. “They quickly reassured everyone there was no danger posed by the presentation piece and no need to evacuate the school.”

Ah, yes … just like the good old days here, when things were actually evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Now? Fuhgeddaboutit. Click here for the source.

pocket%20dial%20dialing.jpg

Getting pocket dialed is annoying, though we all get tagged occasionally, even the police. In this particular instance, The Juice is guessing they weren’t the least bit annoyed.

Police responded to a 911 call in the 600 block of S.W. 122nd street. The caller was on a cell phone and accidentally dialed 911. When no one responded on the line, the dispatcher became concerned. They were able to trace the call and locate the cell phone in an abandoned house. Officers arrived and found three subjects had broken in to a rear door of the home and were inside illegally.

Exactly how this “subject” pocket dialed 911 will remain a mystery. HT to The Highline Times (Washington State).

Who do you think would be the last group of folks to tell the government that they are subversives? Maybe subversives? Well sir, the legislature in South Carolina was of a different mind, because they enacted the “Subversive Activities Registration Act.” Honestly. Per the act:

For the purposes of this chapter the following words, phrases and terms are defined as follows:

(1) “Subversive organization” means every corporation, society, association, camp, group, bund, political party, assembly, body or organization, composed of two or more persons, which directly or indirectly advocates, advises, teaches or practices the duty, necessity or propriety of controlling, conducting, seizing or overthrowing the government of the United States, of this State or of any political subdivision thereof by force or violence or other unlawful means;

So what’s a subversive organization in South Carolina to do?

SECTION 23-29-60. Registration of members of subversive and foreign-controlled organizations.

Every member of a subversive organization, or an organization subject to foreign control, every foreign agent and every person who advocates, teaches, advises or practices the duty, necessity or propriety of controlling, conducting, seizing or overthrowing the government of the United States, of this State or of any political subdivision thereof by force or violence or other unlawful means, who resides, transacts any business or attempts to influence political action in this State, shall register with the Secretary of State on the forms and at the times prescribed by him.

Exactly how does a subversive organization register? Since you asked …

SECTION 23-29-70. Forms and schedule for filing information.

Every organization or person coming within the provisions of this chapter shall file with the Secretary of State all information which he may request, on the forms and at the times he may prescribe.

And yes, there is a form for that. Oh, and that’ll be $5.00 please. By the way, though the registration fee may be small, the penalty for failure to do so can be quite severe.

Any organization or person who violates any of the provisions of this chapter shall, upon conviction thereof, be punished by a fine of not more than twenty-five thousand dollars or imprisonment for not more than ten years, or by both fine and imprisonment.

Getting beaten up is bad enough. What if on the way to the hospital, the EMT notices a bulge in your pants? No, not that … 



On May 13, 32-year-old Harrison Preston of Fort Walton Beach was being taken to the hospital after a battery incident at a convenience store on James Lee Road.

Already, it’s a bad day.

An EMT who was trying to secure Harrison in the ambulance found a bag filled with a “green leafy substance” stuffed in his underpants.



Doh!

The marijuana totaled 31.2 grams.

Preston was charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.

Now it’s a really bad day. Here’s the source, (nwfdailynews.com) with a mug shot.

People use the words “chicken shit” all the time. This fella, though, is accused of doing much more than using the words. As seen at todayskccr.com:

Prosecutors say [Tom] Parsons [49] , following a dispute with the county treasurer over a vehicle registration, placed the registration card in chicken feces and mailed the material to the official in a zip-lock bag.  The first-class mail piece was sent from the Pierre Post Office.

Brilliant! They’ll never trace it back to you… The plea?

Parsons entered the plea to a single count of Injurious Articles as Nonmailable Friday afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Moreno in Pierre Federal Court. A trial date has not yet been set.

In the mean time …

Following a discussion on conditions, Moreno released Parsons on a personal recognizance bond with supervision meaning he has to remain in contact with the parole office. Parsons also can have no contact with postal service employees except for regular transactions during the normal business day.

Sure, there’s an old saw about “hiding in plain sight.” But really, does it sound like a good idea to grow marijuana on school property? And if you’re going to throw out there that it was in “a wooded area,” you probably think that “hiding in plain sight” is actually a good idea. As reported by News4Jax.com:

A homeless man was arrested Monday after a school resource officer at Lake City Middle School [Florida] found several marijuana plants growing in a wooded area on school property, Columbia County deputies said.

Detectives said they were able to use surveillance of the area to find 33-year-old Damon Crosby caring for the plants.

Crosby was arrested while taking care of the plants Monday and was booked into the Columbia County Detention Facility with bail set at $16,000.

The nine marijuana plants ranged from 1 foot to 2.5 feet in height. The estimated value of the plants is more than $5,000.

The charges?

… cultivation of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and trespassing on school grounds.
