Boys, 13 and 15, accused of stealing car, driving to Nebraska

The boy and a 15-year-old friend, stopped along the way to raid and steal items from unlocked vehicles, according to a Fond du Lac Police Department report.

The two teenagers took three different family member’s vehicles on separate occasions last week without permission, according to a police report. They drove around Fond du Lac and stole various items from unlocked vehicles, including an Apple iPod and stereo faceplates.

Nice kids. Their mothers must be so proud! :/

House, Senate Negotiators Agree on War-Funding Bill

House and Senate negotiators reached agreement today on final war-funding legislation that would begin bringing U.S. troops home from Iraq as early as this July, setting a goal of ending U.S. combat operations no later than March of next year.

Hey, here’s a thought….why don’t we just hand everything over to the bad guys, and call it a day?

Fairview Heights is taking aim at spit

A new city ordinance that turns spitters into outlaws has folks here a little befuddled.

If a bug flies in your mouth and you spit it out, can you get arrested?

Are the police going to patrol little league games for youngsters spitting sunflower seeds?

Don’t people sometimes just have to spit?

I guess Josh Schroeder better be careful if he’s in that neighborhood. 🙂

Hainstock to be tried as an adult

A boy accused of shooting to death his principal could face life in prison after a judge ruled today that his case will remain in the adult justice system.

Eric Hainstock, 16, was charged as an adult in September with murder in the death of Weston Schools principal John Klang. Under Wisconsin law, the 16-year-old boy could be sentenced to life in prison in adult court.

It’s a shame WI doesn’t have the death penalty. There are a few who would ‘benefit’ from it recently.

Rabid skunks, bat reported in Midstate

Wildlife is moving too close to home for at least two Williamson County residents: One stumbled upon a dead bat in her swimming pool and the other found a dead skunk in the yard.

I think I’ll refrain from petting the striped kitties. I can’t even figure out if this is considered part of Midstate TN.

Ahmadinejad proposes holding talks with Bush

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday proposed holding talks with US President George W. Bush – a surprise suggestion from the hard-line leader whose country is at odds with Washington over its disputed nuclear program and involvement in Iraq, Iran’s state-run Arabic satellite TV channel reported.

President Bush looks NOTHING like Queen Nan!

Klan jokes in city office?
CDOT | Boss on leave over alleged racism, sexism

A supervisor with Chicago’s Department of Transportation is on the hot seat for allegedly making racist and sexist comments to co-workers and parading around with a red tablecloth over his head while calling himself the “grand wizard,” a title used by leaders of the Ku Klux Klan.

The assistant project director has been placed on administrative leave, pending termination proceedings, for allegedly referring to female co-workers as “bitches,” using the n-word to address African Americans and referring to other black employees as “mambo.”

How ignorant can people be? Shouldn’t we all be beyond such juvenile behavior by now?

Man not guilty of raping two girls in bunker

Jurors rejected testimony from the girls and investigators after deliberating three hours Sunday night and a little more than an hour Monday, ending a trial that spanned eight days. Hinson testified last weekend that the girls had used the bunker, where he hid marijuana, and had consensual sex with him the day before the allegations were made.

Having seen a picture of the guy, I find it really hard to believe that any 17 year old would choose to have sex with him.

  1. Let them boys drive to Nebraska. That’ll be punishment enough.
