*Let’s just file this one under Idiot of the Week shall we? But let me set this up for you. You are arrested for property offenses, but you somehow escape. Of course the first thing your dumb ass is going to do is go on Facebook.

Oh! What’s this? It’s ME!!! Ugh. Why’d they use THAT picture?

Why not use THIS ONE instead!?

This is the exact scenario 18-year-old Amy Sharp brought to life in Australia after police posted a photo of her online in an attempt to locate her.

Shame on them…using that ugly photo! Continue reading

Online Date Ends Up Being ‘The Last’ for This Single Dad (Video)

Online date, man murdered

*A single father who was looking for love on the online dating site, Plenty of Fish, was found dead on his kitchen floor after he went out on a date with an 18-year-old girl who it was later learned, had set him up for a robbery.

His murder may have been a last minute decision.

27-year-old Adam Hilarie met 18-year-old Hailey Bustos via Plenty of Fish, an online dating site. The two went bowling on their first date. After the date the pair went back to Hilarie’s house, and upon parting, Bustos texted: “I had a good time and would like to see you again.”

The agreement turned out to be a grave mistake.

They set up a meet at Hilarie’s place for the next night. But instead of arriving alone, the girl brought three friends with her.

According to a report on the Miami Herald:

Cops said 18-year-old Hailey Bustos had been paid $50 to arrange the theft of Hilarie’s TVs, Xbox and iPhone, and returned hours later for the robbery with the three men.

The incident escalated.

Dog in Michigan Dies at Groomer’s After Being Soaked in Chemicals

Max, dog dies after chemicals spill

*At best we can hope that the death of this poor little poodle cocker spaniel mix will shut down Shaggy Dog Puppies & Supplies pet store in Michigan. Max, a healthy 7-year-old rescue, had been taken in for a routine visit as he had many times before. Last Thursday, he was taken in to get his hair trimmed and nails cut. He never made it back home. When the groomers didn’t call his owners, Dennis and Maureen St. Clair back in a timely manner to pick him up, a red flag rose up and Dennis decided to go to the pet shop located at Van Dyke near 21 Mile.

“I saw the groomer, her name was Cindy, and she was coming out the back door with a dog wrapped in blankets and just soaking wet,” Dennis told Fox 2. “And I looked and said, ‘Oh God, I hope it isn’t my dog,’ and it was Max, foaming at the mouth.”

But it was.

According to the groomers, little Max had been barking too much and they set him in a utility closet where somehow, chemicals spilled.  Continue reading

*My god. Position yourselves people, because it’s going to be hard to wrap your brain around this one. Do you recall the tragic 2013 story about a teenage boy’s body that was found rolled up in a gym mat at Lowndes High School in Valdosta? Well the case was just closed and they were no closer to what may have been the truth on how Kendrick Johnson ended up in that mat. But here’s the thing: after all was said and done, a judge has now ordered the dead teen’s parents to pay the legal fees of the two brothers they suspect murdered him!

Kenneth and Jackie Johnson pointed to Brian and Branden Bell, saying they killed their son, and filed a $100 million wrongful death lawsuit against the brothers, who had alibis and witnesses to back it up.

In March, the Johnson’s withdrew their lawsuit.

The feds got involved and Michael Moore, former U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia,  brought on lawyers and investigators from the Justice Department, District of Columbia police officers, U.S. marshals and the FBI to investigate. All of this personnel claim that nearly 100 interviews were done and, according to a statement by the Justice Department, “tens of thousands” of emails and text messages were reviewed, along with surveillance videos from Lowndes High School, where Johnson’s body was discovered on Jan. 11, 2013.

Still, no evidence to substantiate the parents claims of coul play. Continue reading

Shocking! Man Caught on Tape Trying to Kidnap Toddler (Watch)

Stephen O'Brien can be seen carrying a young child over his shoulder as he leaves a store.
Stephen O’Brien can be seen carrying a young child over his shoulder as he leaves a store.

*Parents, I hate to break it to you but, you’ve probably heard the saying, “Be afraid. Be very afraid.” Only thing is, it’s usually associated with something cute and gimmicky. Some scary movie or sales pitch. Unfortunately, that’s not the case here. Nut jobs are getting more brazen than ever these days. Only last week we heard about the Glendale woman who, in broad daylight snatched, or attempted to snatch two young children. Fortunately, two days later she was captured. Now some other fool has walked right up to a family in a supermarket and lifted their one-year-old child over his shoulder and walked out.

Let me say that again.

He lifted these people’s child up onto his shoulder and WALKED OUT!

And there is video to prove it below.

Before we go any further, I’m happy to report the kidnapper, identified as Stephen O’Brien, didn’t get far and the kid is fine, thanks to his dad who, after the shock of it wore off, followed the crazy man out of the store and  took his child back before alerting store employees to call the cops.

When you see the guy hand the child back, without further incident, watch what he does to the father.

W-E-I-R-D. Continue reading

Good Samaritan Allegedly Killed By Two Men He Helped (Video)

*Who’da ever thunk it? Here you are being a good samaritan, and though you don’t expect any awards or rewards, you also don’t expect to be killed as a result of your good deed. Yet, Chadwick Garrett is dead today. And North Charleston police spokesperson Spencer Pryor alleges his killers are Deon Antonio, 17, and Michael Odell Anthony Dupree-Tyler, 19. He had helped the two fellas haul their Dodge Durango out of a ditch.

They had the audacity to rob him first.

Garrett, who died around 11:35 p.m. at the scene near Durant Avenue and North Jimtown Drive, was identified by a Charleston County Coroner’s Officer.

The two men have since been arrested in Charleston, NC.

Rest assured, “Karma” is real and it will be served in due time.

And we wonder why people hesitate to help. The past year has served up too many examples of innocent people who, with outstretched arms, met their untimely death. Continue reading

Little Ohio Boy Tries to Sell His Teddy Bear for Food (Watch)

Cp09lr_XYAQaGR8

*With this story we are reminded of why police officers can still be a valuable resource. Imagine a 7-year-old boy standing outside of a neighborhood CVS store, offering up his little teddy bear to anybody who will buy it because he needs money to buy something to eat.

Yes, I said he is seven.

We hear these dreadful stories each day, but usually they are happening in poverty-stricken third world countries. This happened in the United States of America. In Ohio.

The little boy hadn’t eaten in several days.

And not only was he alone, standing at the busy intersection of Second and Main in Franklin — he wasn’t even having any luck! So now we get to imagine ANYONE passing a child on the streets and not offering to help him; not INSISTING on finding out why he is out there before taking him to a police station.

His family never missed him, apparently. They didn’t even know he was gone until police showed up at their nasty-ass house and arrested them.

But there I go, getting ahead of myself. Continue reading

*My god. No telling who your child may bring home from school. But consider yourself among the fortunate if her ‘new friend’ turns out to be her biological sister that was kidnapped nearly two decades earlier! 

It happened in Cape Town, South Africa. After 17 years of celebrating the birthday of a daughter who was snatched from them only three days after her birth at a Cape Town hospital, Morne and Celeste Nurse got a phone call that assured them they were  parents again! Continue reading
