School janitor arrested with guns, KKK souvenirs
Newsday | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"Police found one shotgun, four pistols, eight rifles, nine semi-automatic rifles, dozens of knives, blackjacks and brass knuckles and more than 3,000 rounds of ammunition at Donato's home. ... Besides the weaponry, police found gas masks, flak jackets, a noose, an Adolph Hitler doll, a copy of 'The Aryan Coloring Book,' a Ku Klux Klan hood with robe and business cards that read: 'You have been visited by the Ku Klux Klan, and the next time will not be a social call.'" But how did this gentleman come to join the Klan? It wasn't the Internet this time; instead you should blame "a documentary about hate groups."

White House ignores heroin problem to stop cocaine
Washington Times | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"The White House and the State Department allowed a flood of Colombian heroin to enter the country by significantly underestimating the amount of the drug smuggled in each year, according to senior congressional investigators. ... A top congressional narcotics investigator told The Washington Times that the government's shift in 2001 from opium eradication to the spraying of coca fields was the 'fatal strategic mistake' that allowed Colombian traffickers to increase their share of the heroin market."

Granny loses leg, finger in grenade attack
BBC | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"A grandmother who was injured when a grenade was thrown into her Liverpool home has had to have a leg amputated. ... Doctors at Whiston Hospital have also amputated a finger and were fighting to save her other leg on Monday. Merseyside Police have appealed to the criminal fraternity in Toxteth to come forward with information about the source of the hand grenade." Not likely. If you want to know how the criminal fraternity deals with one of its own, consult Fritz Lang's M.

Nat Turner's skull donated to Civil Rights museum
Daily Southtown | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"The donation of a skull said to be that of 1830s slave revolt leader Nat Turner to the proposed National Civil Rights Hall of Fame in Gary is raising some questions. ... Bruce Turner, the great-great-great-great-grandson of the slave revolt leader, doubts the skull is Turner's. Even if it were authentic, Turner doesn't think the skull should be put on display. 'It would not serve anything in history. It would only serve the macabre interest of people.'"

Man on hunger strike sews up eyes, ears, mouth
BBC | Submitted by: Jim Jones
"An Iranian Kurdish man living in Nottingham has sewn up his eyes, ears and mouth in protest at the possibility of being deported. The 33-year-old Abas Amini is on hunger strike and doctors say he could die within days." Either that's determination, or he's compensating for a lack of willpower.

Funeral home cuts tongue out of corpse
WPBF-TV 25 West Palm Beach | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Menorah Gardens Cemetery, which is the subject of a class-action lawsuit alleging it misplaced bodies and oversold plots -- is defending itself again. ... A widow from Royal Palm Beach says cemetery managers cut out her late husband's tongue without her permission to make his body more presentable for the funeral. The widow says Jewish tradition prohibits mutilating a body in any way, and that she did not request open-coffin viewing in the first place."

The investigation began after a 16-year-old girl told her parents that she and four friends had been videotaped performing sexual acts at a hotel.

Norwegian pedophiles created by the Internet
nettavisen.no | Submitted by: olev
"According to Norwegian police, the Internet is responsible for an increase in the production and distribution of child pornography, making it easier for paedophiles to live out their fantasies. 'It used to be more difficult for people who are interested in child porn to get hold of pictures. The Internet makes it easier to get in touch with others and a commercial industry has developed.'" If you really want to blame the underlying technologies, it seems like photography is even more culpable.

LA's crack houses cleared by malodorant
News Corporation | Submitted by: Dirty Sammy
"A team of Los Angeles sheriffs, nicknamed the Skunk Squad, is winning the battle against prostitutes, drug addicts and dealers in a notorious suburb thanks to a foul smelling repellant developed by scientists in New Zealand. ... Lieutenant Shaun Mathers ordered SkunkShot over the internet, paying $12 a bottle from his own pocket, and tested it in a burnt-out motel in Compton, smearing it on two abandoned couches. The results were impressive. Lieutenant Mathers wrote in a report to his superiors that SkunkShot 'was able to do what fences, gates and barbed wire' could not."

Winona Ryder shoplifting musical
Sacramento Bee | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"In the latest example of art imitating life, a group of high school students has created a musical based on last fall's shoplifting trial of actress Winona Ryder. Point Loma High School's, 'Sticky Fingers: A Tale of Saks, Lies and Videotape,' satirizes the trial in which the Oscar-nominated actress was convicted of taking more than $6,000 worth of items from Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. The production is the culmination of a year's worth of work by several dozen students and is directed by teacher Larry Zeiger, who plays piano for the show and also stars as CNN interviewer Larry King."

McSting not authorized by restaurant
Fort Myers News-Press | Submitted by: Rockpile
Dressed as a McDonald's employee, an undercover officer worked the drive-through window March 21 and April 25 and spotted enough wrongdoing inside customers' cars to warrant six arrests and 29 citations. But someone involved -- it wasn't really clear who on Friday -- may end up with Egg McMuffin on his face because the owner of the restaurant at 3645 Cleveland Ave. was never told and neither was the fast-food chain's corporate headquarters." But the operation did earn the approval of one local: "I think itís awfully Big Brotherish, but there's an awful lot of things that need to be Big Brothered upon."
