44 Year Old Man Electrocuted
Sounds like a tragedy until you read the story and find that he was attempting to remove copper wire from a factory. Of course that copper wire was THE MAIN POWER LINE to the building. Apparently this idiot thought that he could climb the pole by the street, chop the wire, then do the same by the building and simply roll up 150' worth of payday.
16 Year Old Shot During Robbery Attempt
Again, I read the headline and thought that I would read about some clerk getting his head blown off. Nope... little gang banger pulled a knife on a clerk, clerk gave him the money, instead of leaving the kid demanded cigarettes too. When the clerk wasn't fast enough the kid stuck him in the arm with the knife and the clerk went down. The juvie-crook came around the counter to get his own smokes and was met by three rounds of a .38
The kid is supposed to survive, but the reports said he was shot in the lower extremities and groin which required hours of surgery.
I hope the clerk took his balls off.
32 Year Old Crushed by Car
Why is this in the police blotter section? Turns out some guy in Ghettoville was getting ready to go to work and found a pair of legs sticking out from beneath his car. He stooped down to investigate and found a flattened man, a tipped over bottle jack, a sawzall and the front of his catalytic converter laying on the ground with the exhaust cut. It'll probably cost $100 to get the exhaust fixed at the local shop... but it would be SO worth it if that were my car!
Shoplifter Hit by Car
The local Department store caught a thief... well actually the SAW him and he ran. Following store policy, the Department Store Loss Prevention team stopped chasing and called the police.
Two minutes later, the dispatcher called the Department Store Loss Prevention team and asked them to meet the police officers in front of the store in order to identify a man matching their thieves description.
They found their thief. He had been clipped by a car, flipped into the other traffic lanes where a bus had rolled over him.
Unfortunately, he survived but is all types of fucked up.
Police found TWO dvd's tucked into his waist band.
