Here is a collection of current legal stories. Or, I could also title it, “sniffing out the news”.
From Winter Haven, Florida, here’s how to really make a lady angry. (WFTV.com) A female deputy was grocery shopping on Saturday night. A man ran by and stole her purse and then jumped into a nearby SUV. Inside the purse was her badge and her .380 Ruger, still inside the holster.
In my head I can hear that saying about “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”. How about a woman who just lost her purse, wallet, badge and gun. Now that is some fury!
Next, On Saturday Virginia Republicans formally chose Ken Cuccinelli as the nominee for Governor in the November elections. In response, the Internet was filled with attacks from both sides. One especially caught my attention.
It comes from Charlottesville’s Daily Progress. The writer calls Cuccinelli hypocritical for not standing up for the rights of fishermen. Apparently, this man is angry that Cuccinelli would dare campaign as the Shad Planking. This one reminds me of the saying that “you can’t please everyone all of the time”. Maybe that’s why they say that when eating a pizza, cut it into four pieces if you are not hungry enough to eat six.

And finally, from the world of sports. ESPN is reporting that former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson has now been arrested on charges that he violated his probation. Johnson was serving a year of probation relating to the original charges of assaulting his ex-wife.

The original charges resulted after Johnson head-butted Evelyn Lozada. Now, an arrest warrant has been issued when Johnson failed to meet with his probation officer on two occasions, as well as failed to enroll in a mandatory domestic violence education class.
Not sure if Johnson thinks he is applying the Mahatma Gandhi quote, “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win”. Unfortunately, the judge is not ignoring Johnson and I don’t think Johnson has the last part in store for him.
And to conclude the random, pic o’ day. Just decided to end on a more positive note:
