Dum­b­ass, party of 1 –Upper Darby police Super­in­ten­dent Michael J. Chit­wood said offi­cers and their fam­i­lies had gath­ered for a Christ­mas party Sun­day and were wait­ing to be seated at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Philadel­phia when Sgt. Jim Reif spot­ted a woman allegedly reach­ing into a purse that was attached to some­one else’s arm. Chit­wood said Gwen­dolyn Jor­dan, 46, seemed “shocked” to find her­self quickly sur­rounded by eight offi­cers. Jor­dan, has had 59 pre­vi­ous arrests.  “She went to the wrong Christ­mas party,” Chit­wood said.  This is like that guy who shoplifted when it was Shop with a Cop Day

 Damn good shot - If you think you’re hav­ing a bad day lis­ten to this story…A man clean­ing his muzzle-loading rifle shot the gun into the air and acci­den­tally killing a 15-year-old Amish girl dri­ving a horse-drawn buggy more than a mile away. Yep, Rachel Yoder had attended a Christ­mas party for employ­ees at an Amish pro­duce farm and was rid­ing home alone.  The horse con­tin­ued to walk home when she fell out of the buggy near her home!  Her brother found her after he saw the horse walk­ing in cir­cles and went to check it. Author­i­ties ini­tially believed she had fallen out of the buggy and hit her head until a hos­pi­tal test revealed the gun­shot wound.  The gun-cleaner’s fam­ily came for­ward and his neigh­bors reported hear­ing a shot at about the time the girl was wounded.  The man had fired the gun in the air about 1.5 miles State inves­ti­ga­tors said. “In all prob­a­bil­ity, it looks like an acci­den­tal shoot­ing,” Zim­merly said.  No charges have been filed. 

Every­thing must go…with us - Two depart­ment store employ­ees in Florida Vasthi Mar­seille and Mar­line San­telus were arrested on charges of grand theft after using price guns to mark down thou­sands of dol­lars in mer­chan­dise at the store to 5 bucks, then buy­ing it them­selves. One of the women said she’d seen another sales per­son doing some­thing sim­i­lar in the past and fig­ured, “Why not?”  Because it’s illegal???
