Enough of the Financial Talk; How About Some Drugs, Sheep that are Asking for It and Dead Hookers?

Links for your enjoyment.

Can I get rid of Comcast yet? Sprint unviels WiMax; city-wide "hot-spot" coverage for Baltimore.

This sounds like the type of guy I would trust to give information that may send people to jail:
Informants have different motivations for working with police, but the details they provide — names, places and times — can be key in major investigations and can lead to arrests.

Until last week, Timothy Ian Boland, a 31-year-old Robbinsdale man, was one of them. He's now accused of playing a role in the death of his brother's girlfriend and has been charged with second-degree murder and second-degree aiding and abetting a murder.

"At this point, his value as an informant is zero," Sommer said.

But Boland's arrest won't compromise any of the task force's investigations, he said.
Of course not. But is it nuts to think that it should? I don't think so...

TtP asks the question in Feburary '06 -- Is Sheep-Fucker a Sex Offender? I'm happy to report that the Michigan Court of Appeals says no.
A Calhoun County man who sodomized a sheep will not have to register as a sex offender because the sheep cannot be considered a victim of sexual assault under Michigan law, a court ruled this week.

Jeffrey Scott Haynes, 45, is serving a 2 1/2 - to 20-year prison sentence after pleading no contest to sodomy in 2006. He was found trespassing on a farm in Bedford Township in January 2005. The farmer called police when she realized one of her sheep was injured. A DNA sample taken from the sheep matched Haynes, a career criminal with convictions dating to 1985.[...]

Haynes, who was sentenced as a fourth-time habitual offender, is at Parr Highway Correctional Facility in Adrian. He has been convicted of home invasion, forgery and uttering and publishing.
Question to my lawyer readers: What's the difference between forgery and uttering and publishing?

While most people might automatically think murder when they find a dead hooker buried in a garden with her underwear around her knees, and her legs tied together with a plastice bag ALONG with signs of strangulation; the Baltimore Coroner would disagree. A brief story about the abnormally high rate of "undeclared" deaths in Baltimore as well as a reminder that someone is going around killing prostitutes in this city.
The Maryland Medical Examiner’s Office in Baltimore consistently posted higher numbers of undetermined deaths than other states or large cities. In 2004, for instance, 341 deaths were ruled undetermined in Baltimore City, and 807 in the state of Maryland. The same year, Washington, D.C., had 76 undetermined deaths.

In McClary’s case, Wecht said undetermined appeared to be the “proper” ruling. “In a case like this, where they need more information, it’s the right thing to do,” Wecht said.

McClary’s body was discovered Aug. 30, 2006, on Beaufort and West Belvedere avenues, where former police Commissioner Leonard Hamm’s stepdaughter Nicole Sesker was found strangled this year.

“We always thought it was suspicious,” said Rhonda McClary, Tyra’s sister. “We’ve really never had any closure. It’s been very hard for her mother.”

There have been 26 prostitutes killed since 1998, according to records reviewed by The Examiner.
Officer, the marijuana in my possesion only looks like a lot because it's fluffy. Oh, and I stayed late after work to drink booze. Now, why did you pull me over?
