USPS worker steals cash and gift cards from 2000 pieces of mail. “I was bored”


A Detroit-area postal employee is accused of stealing as many as 2,000 pieces of mail, pocketing any cash and dumping the leftovers along Interstate 94.

635536699348370017-uspsFederal authorities say that Sharon Berrien told them she stole the mail out of boredom. It was mostly greeting cards.

Berrien was charged Monday with stealing mail while working at a Detroit mail processing center.

Investigators say she told them that the thefts began last spring.

The probe started in October when mail was found along Pelham Road and I-94 and given to the Taylor postmaster.

On Nov. 21, 800 pieces were found in Berrien’s trash. Three bags were inside in a closet.

Berrien says she kept $1,000 to $1,500. She didn’t immediately return a phone message seeking comment on the criminal case Monday.

“I was bored,” she told investigators when they asked for the reason she stole the mail. She said she didn’t have any financial problems.

Rapist Alain Climent proposed to victim to avoid trial


A man who proposed to a woman he raped, after mistakenly believing she could not then give evidence against him, has been convicted of attacking her.

Alain Climent, 50, originally of Paris, raped the 52-year-old woman in Lanarkshire in November 2013.

He then raped her again at her home in Lanarkshire in March 2014, before sexually assaulting her a month later.

Climent will be sentenced later after being convicted of rape, sexual assault and assault charges.

At the High Court in Edinburgh, he was also convicted of attempting to pervert the course of justice, breaching the peace and repeatedly breaching bail.

Campaign of terror

Following the first rape in November 2013, Climent appeared in court and was granted bail by a sheriff on the condition he did not contact the woman.

He ignored the court order and subjected the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, to a campaign of terror.

The court heard how he hid in the loft of the woman’s home in March 2014 and jumped on her when she returned to the property, raping her for a second time.

In April 2014, Climent sexually assaulted the woman at a location in Lanarkshire. He also physically assaulted her.

The court heard that he was terrified of being jailed and attempted on various occasions to stop the woman from giving evidence against him.

On one occasion, he asked the woman to marry him because he thought wives could not give evidence against their husbands.

Repeated attacks

The woman told the court: “He said that if there was to be a court case, I would have to watch my back.”

After a police investigation, Climent was charged with a number of offences against the woman and two others.

The crown alleged that he attacked two other woman in the Dundee area between August 2003 and September 2009.

The jury found there was not enough evidence to convict him of these offences but found him guilty of repeated attacks on the woman in Lanarkshire.

Judge Lord Glennie deferred sentence on Climent, who is a prisoner at HMP Addiewell in West Lothian, for reports.

Man videotaped himself having sex with stepdaughter’s corpse


The man accused of killing his stepdaughter, Jessica Padgett, videotaped himself having sex with her corpse, Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli said Friday.

He said the video confirmed what Gregory R. Graf told investigators on the day he was charged with homicide last month: that he wanted to have sex with Padgett, and that he did so after she was dead.

Morganelli said he had concluded Graf killed Padgett in order to have sex with her body.

He said he had authorized the filing of an abuse-of-corpse charge against Graf, 53. A misdemeanor, it means Morganelli won’t be able to seek the death penalty because the alleged sexual abuse occurred after Padgett was killed.


Morganelli declined to discuss what the video showed, other than to say Graf committed a variety of sexual acts against Padgett, 33, of Whitehall Township, who once described him as like a second father.

Graf is accused of shooting Padgett in the back of the head on Nov. 21 and hiding her body on his property while family and friends searched for her.

Padgett went missing that day after she left Duck Duck Goose Child Care in Northampton.

Morganelli also said Graf had a marijuana-growing operation that police discovered as they searched for Padgett.

Teacher Brent Taylor Told Student To Unclog Toilet With Bare Hands


A Washington state teacher acknowledged ordering an 8-year-old student to unclog a toilet with his bare hands, and the boy’s parents say the educator deserves more than a reprimand.

n-BRENT-TAYLOR-largeArtie and Lisa Adams told KEPR-TV that they learned of the Nov. 6 incident at Scootney Springs Elementary School in the small, central Washington city of Othello when they asked their son about his day at school.

The third-grader said he reported the clog and teacher Brent Taylor told him to clear it with his bare hands.

The parents complained. The principal reprimanded Taylor, warned him that any further such incidents would lead to his termination, and ordered the 23-year teaching veteran to review a hygiene course.

Othello Superintendent George Juarez told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the punishment was made in consultation with the school district’s lawyer and was appropriate considering the teacher’s record and contract protections.

While the pupil reached into the toilet and pulled out a couple strands of paper, the teacher himself ultimately reached in barehanded and pulled out the clog, which consisted “only of paper,” Juarez said.

Juarez called the teacher’s actions “very poor professional judgment” and said the district regrets what happened.

“The child had flushed the toilet several times, and it didn’t go down,” Juarez said. “I am sure that the best judgment would have been to call our custodian to handle the matter.”

A message left for Taylor at the school was not immediately returned.

The district granted a request from the boy’s family to transfer him to another school.

Canadian family lived with man’s dead body for six months as they prayed for resurrection … BTW, it didn’t work



This is a story about one family’s unshakable faith in the Lord, and how it lead to a woman and her children living with a dead body for six months.

The Wald family was a law-abiding, God-fearing, religion-preaching family in Hamilton, Canada.

Peter Wald and his wife Kaling had six children, and they lived in a modest home in the appropriately named Saint Matthews Avenue.

The family drove around town in a van covered in religious messages – as was their home – and they even scratched crosses on the van’s headlights so it would beam the glorious symbol on the road in front of them.

They handed out food to the homeless and would perform little plays and skits – religiously themed, of course – in the backyard of their home for homeless folk in the neighbourhood.

But the Lord, in his infinite wisdom, decided to afflict 52-year-old Peter with diabetes. Thinking that perhaps it was one of God’s tests, Peter refused to get medical treatment – believing instead that the Yahwey would cure him.

Eventually Peter fell into a coma and died in the family home around March 20 last year. Instead of calling the authorities and beginning funeral arrangements, Kaling and five of the six children living in the house decided that they would pray for Peter’s resurrection.

And prayed they did – hard!

Kaling covered Peter’s body with two blankets, shut the bedroom door and padlocked it. She sealed with window, door, and all vents with duct tape – and then went downstairs to await his inevitable rise from the dead.

Neighbours had asked Kaling about Peter’s whereabouts but she simply replied that he was ‘in God’s hands’.

On September 17, almost six months later, the local sheriff visited the house to serve an eviction notice – they had defaulted on mortgage payments.

The Walds knew they were going to be evicted, and had already packed their belongings – including Peter’s – when the sheriff arrived.

Court reports do not record the sheriff’s reaction when Kaling unlocked the padlock and cracked open the upstairs bedroom door to reveal the still-unresurrected Peter – but it was undoubtedly one of the all-time most horrified facial expressions.

Peter was badly decomposed – and the neighbourhood’s rats had not been dissuaded by a bit of duct tape and a couple of blankets. If Peter was coming back now, he would be coming back in a bad way.

On Monday, 50-year-old Kaling pleaded guilty to failing to notify police or the coroner that her husband had died due to an illness that was not being treated by a doctor. It’s the first known conviction of its kind in Canada.

She was given 18 months of probation and ordered to seek counselling over the ‘public health’ implications of the incident

Kaling, who has moved her family to Fort Erie, Canada, reassuringly told a reporter for the Hamilton Spectator after her court case: ‘It was unusual, yes. It was certainly not normal. And we won’t do that again… laws exist and we know that now.’

Masturbating Passenger Causes Premature Landing For Virgin Flight


The premature landing came about after the Bay Area man, seen wearing a hospital bracelet, got into an argument with a fellow-passenger and eventually attempted to exit the plane through an emergency door, according to KNBC.

Boston police officers were aboard the flight and reportedly apprehended the man as the plane — bound for Los Angeles from Boston — made an unscheduled landing in Nebraska.

One fellow passenger filmed the cops escorting the handcuffed man off the plane.
