[quote author=metro.co.uk]Family kept man in coffin for two years

A family in India kept their 72-year-old uncle in a coffin for two years after he refused to hand over his farm to them.

Authorities in Porbunder, western India, say that the family took the lid off the coffin just once a day to feed Rajan Killaker before nailing it down again, and that they drilled holes in the casket so he could breath.

They kept him trapped after he had refused to sign over his farm, worth around £100,000, to them

'We have arrested eight of his relatives who confessed to torturing him,' said a police spokesman.

[quote author=huffingtonpost.com]Galicia Malone, Chicago Woman In Labor, Votes En Route To Hospital

A Chicago-area woman went into labor early Tuesday morning -- but she wasn't about to let that stop her from taking the opportunity to vote.

Though her water had already broken, 21-year-old Galicia Malone voted around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday at New Life Celebration Church in south suburban Dolton, ABC Chicago reports.

According to Cook County Clerk David Orr, Malone's contractions were five minutes apart when she arrived at her polling place. Her labor reportedly began at 3 a.m.

"If only all voters showed such determination to vote," Orr said of Malone, according to NBC Chicago.

Malone told CBS Chicago reports that her participating in the first presidential election she is eligible to vote in made "a major difference in my life."

Elsewhere in the Chicago area, voters struggled with long lines and confusion after redistricting led to changed polling locations for about 20 percent of Cook County voters. To make matters worse, the city's election site has been spotty for much of the day -- and crashed at one point.[/quote]





[quote author=huffingtonpost.com]Texas Man, Arrested After Allegedly Trying To Buy TV For $2 At Walmart

A 52-year-old man was arrested at an Abilene, Texas, Walmart after he allegedly swapped barcodes on a television and tried to buy the device for about $2.

William Keltner allegedly removed a barcode tag from a hanger worth only $1.17 and placed it on the $228 television. According to KTXS, Kelter was detained in an office until police arrived.

Keltner is charged with state-jail felony theft, destruction of evidence, and misdemeanor destruction of writing. His theft charge was enhanced due to prior theft convictions.

The Houston Press compared the foiled scheme to one of the "cunning plans" from the BBC Comedy "Blackadder," but strangely this isn't the first time someone has been accused of swapping barcodes to get a lower price on an item.

Earlier this year, a Silicon Valley executive was charged with four felony counts of burglary for allegedly affixing false barcodes to packages of LEGOs in area Target stores.

NBC Bay Area reported that the executive, Thomas Langenbach, was formally charged with switching tickets on seven boxes of LEGOs worth about $1,000 total, although police said he had sold 2,100 pilfered LEGO sets on eBay, garnering $30,000 in profit.[/quote]





[quote author=khq.com]Cop Tasers 10-Year-Old Boy After Refusing To Clean His Patrol Car

KHQ.COM: A ten-year-old boy was tasered by a police officer with 50,000 volts of electricity on a school playground after refusing to clean the officer's car.

According to the complaint filed in court the officer was at Tularosa New Mexico Intermediate School for a career day. The boy was playing on the playground with a group of friends when officer Webb asked the boys who would like to clean his patrol car. A number of the boys volunteered, except for the victim who jokingly said he wouldn't.

The officer responded to the boy's sarcastic remark by saying, "Let me show you what happens to people who do not listen to the police." He then tasered the boy, who weighs less than 100 pounds, in the chest causing him to black out.

When the boy came to, instead of calling for emergency medical assistance, he took the boy to the principal's office. The boy, was left with scars resembling cigarette burns and has since been suffering from PTSD, often waking up in the middle of the night grabbing his chest, fearful of never waking up again.

The incident happened on May 4, 2012 but now the New Mexico Department of Public Safety and Police Officer Chris Webb are being sued by the boys guardian, Rachel Higgins.

Higgins is seeking punitive damages for the 10-year-old for battery, failure to render emergency medical care, excessive force unreasonable seizure and negligent hiring, training, supervision and retention.[/quote]





[quote author=metro.co.uk]Man demands pizza and to marry Paris Hilton in police stand-off

While his first request for a tasty pizza was quite reasonable, Fredrick Denney's second ultimatum to marry the famous socialite was a little trickier to negotiate.

After barricading himself inside a North Carolina hotel, the 61-year-old reportedly threatened to open fire on police unless his demands were met.

According to WCNC, officers were called to the address on Cecilia Alexander Drive, Belmont, at the weekend, responding to reports Denney had allegedly caused an unspecified disturbance at the hotel.

Police cordoned off the area and were forced to shut down the second floor of the hotel in a bid to reason with Denny during a tense stand-off.

During the negotiations, which lasted for several hours, the suspect shunned the traditional demands for a getaway car and a bag of cash for the chance of a happy-ever-after ending with Ms Hilton.

Police revealed it's not the first run-in the Oregon man has had with police, having previously found himself on the wrong side of the law in several states across the US.

The 61-year-old faces several charges including being intoxicated and disorderly.[/quote]





[quote author=metro.co.uk]Lifeguard sacked for saving drowning man

Tomas Lopez, 21, was going about his business, manning his post on Hallandale Beach, north of Miami, when he was alerted to the perilous situation of a swimmer in an unprotected area of the beach.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel newspaper reports that Mr Lopez ran to rescue the drowning man who was then rushed to hospital where he is currently in intensive care.

Presumably feeling quite proud of himself after a job well done, Mr Lopez returned to fill in an incident report when he was relieved of his duties.

His employers told him he was fired for going 500 yards out of his assigned patrol area.

He told the newspaper: 'They didn't tell me in a bad way. It was more like they were "sorry, but rules are rules".

'I couldn't believe what was happening.'

A supervisor for the private contractor which supplies lifeguards for the beach said that the company has 'liability issues' meaning lifeguards 'can't go out of the protected area'.

However, despite losing his job, Mr Lopez said he would do the same again.

'It was the moral thing to do,' he said.

'I would never pick a job over my morals.'[/quote]






[quote author=metro.co.uk]University sues student for graduating too quickly

Students generally are encouraged to stay on top of their work studies but that doesn't appear to be the case with one German university.

This is because a pupil is being sued by his university after he completed his Bachelors and Masters degrees in around a quarter of the normal time.

A German university is suing a pupil who graduated too quickly (PA)

Marcel Pohl completed a total of 60 examinations during his 20 months at the Essen-based School of Economics and Management (FOM).

He managed to achieve a grade of 2.3 but now FOM is suing Mr Pohl for loss of income after he completed his studies in August of last year.

Pohl managed to gain his degree in rapid time by dividing up simultaneous lectures with two friends before then swapping notes.
He also managed to complete an apprenticeship in a bank while studying.

'When I got the lawsuit, I thought it couldn't be true,' Pohl told the Bild newspaper.

'Performance is supposed to be worth something.'

His lawyer Bernhard Kraas added: 'We're always against slow students but when someone hurries and finishes early, suddenly he has to pay. That can't be right.'

A spokesman for the university said it didn't want to comment on the case before it had gone to court.[/quote]

I'm sorry. What?! That officer lost a lot more than just his neurons. His humanity...or rather never had it.

Yeah, seems many cops get a sick pleasure out of using tasers. Reminds me of the Cs about the nephilim having stun guns.
