    Oogie's proudly presents "The Gene Pool Sideshow"

    This thread is dedicated to the news stories that we all see every day that make us want to shout "Hey you!!! Get out of the Gene Pool !!!!" (not to be confused with the Darwin Awards.)

    Our first entry... A lady who took out a ad for a contract killer .... on Myspace.com
    Rage over MySpace photo leads to arrest

    In this photo released by the Mesa Police Department, Heather Kane is shown. Kane, 22, was arrested Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2006, and booked for investigation of conspiracy to commit murder, Mesa Detective Jerry Gissel said. Kane was arrested after she met with what turned out to be an undercover Mesa police detective at a grocery store. Court records show she gave the officer $400 and offered to pay an additional $100 once a woman who appeared on her boyfriend's MySpace.com Web page was killed, police said.

    MESA, Ariz. --A 22-year-old woman was arrested after authorities say she tried to hire someone to kill another woman whose photo appeared on her boyfriend's MySpace.com Web page

    Heather Michelle Kane was booked Tuesday for investigation of conspiracy to commit murder, Mesa Detective Jerry Gissel said.

    She was arrested after she met an undercover Mesa police detective at a grocery store, gave the officer $400 and offered to pay an additional $100 once the woman had been killed, according to court records.

    The records say Kane gave the undercover officer photographs taken from her boyfriend's social networking Web page of the woman she wanted killed. She also requested a photo of the woman's dead body.

    It wasn't clear if the boyfriend and the targeted woman were romantically involved, Gissel said.

    From Chattanooga Tenn, we have this fun story...

    Towing Operator Frazier Arrested On New Charge
    posted September 14, 2006

    A Hooker Road towing operator who was charged with impounding abandoned cars without the owner's permission has been arrested again.

    Inspector Glenn Lemley said a new count has been filed against Buddy V. Frazier Sr., owner of Absolute Towing, who already faced seven felony counts.

    Frazier earlier made a $70,000 bond. He was arrested again on Wednesday.

    Inspector Lemley said the latest incident happened Sept. 4 when Absolute Towing picked up a vehicle belonging to Freddie Martin of 1605 Milne St. at 6:30 a.m.

    The officer said the vehicle was legally parked on a city street in front of a residence at 414 N. Willow.

    He said Mr. Martin was later contacted and told he would have to pay several hundred dollars to retrieve his vehicle.

    Inspector Lemley said the Martin vehicle was located at Absolute Towing on Wednesday and was being returned to the owner.

    The new charge is theft over $1,000.

    Criminal Court Judge Rebecca Stern signed the warrant.

    Police said Frazier would impound as many as 20 vehicles a day he found along the roadway and would take them to be crushed for scrap metal.

    Officers said they also found 20 engines that had been stripped from vehicles at his business.

    Frazier already faced three counts of theft over $1,000, three counts of storing or towing a vehicle without express written authorization and one count of hindering a secured creditor.

    Re: Oogie's proudly presents "The Gene Pool Sideshow"

    Another fun one...

    LAGOS, Nigeria - A Nigerian murder suspect accused of killing his brother with an axe told police investigators he actually attacked a goat, which was only later magically transformed into his sibling's corpse, officials said Thursday.


    The man, whose name wasn't released, offered police his explanation after his arrest on Tuesday in the death of his brother the previous day at Isseluku village in southern Nigeria.

    "He said that the goats were on his farm and he tried to chase them away. When one wouldn't move, he attacked it with an axe. He said it then turned into his brother," Police Commissioner Udom Ekpoudom told the Associated Press.

    Murder suspects in Nigeria, where many people believe in black magic, sometimes claim spirits tricked them into killing. In 2001, eight people were burned to death after one person in their group was accused of making a bystander's penis magically disappear.

    OMG, this made me laugh outloud twice. First, the sibling magically transforming from the goat and then with the penis magically disappearing.

    Back to Wisconson....


    WAUKESHA, Wis. - Police said a suspected arsonist was arrested after they found his birth certificate at the scene of a fire this week.

    The 19-year-old man from Waukesha was arrested Wednesday after officials found his birth certificate at the scene of Sunday's fire, Waukesha Fire Marshal Brian Charlesworth said.

    "You would think somebody wouldn't do that," Charlesworth said. "But, fortunately for us, they did."

    The man was also being held in connection with a fire on May 29 that damaged a historic home in town.

    Police and firefighters noted similar characteristics between the two fires. The most recent fire was a series of small ones at a telecommunications business, said Lt. William Graham. The man's birth certificate was found at the back of the building, he said.
    Immigration officials have been contacted because the man told police he was in the country illegally, he said. Charges could come as soon as Friday, he said.

    The nearly 100-year-old Nelson House home sustained moderate damage in the blaze and was not destroyed. The home was built in 1910 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Re: Oogie's proudly presents "The Gene Pool Sideshow"

    From San Francisco.... Just because you have no I.Q., doesn't mean everyone else is stupid too...

    A convicted San Francisco bank robber who had claimed that he was carjacked and forced to put on the clothes that the real robber had been wearing has been sentenced to 67 years in prison, authorities said today.


    Shaun Roberts, 29, was convicted by a federal jury on two counts of armed bank robbery in San Francisco and two counts of using a firearm in a crime.

    Armed with a gun, Roberts robbed the Wells Fargo Bank at 2100 Fillmore St. of $11,879 on June 22, 2005, and the Bank of America at 2200 Chestnut St. of $4,345 on Aug. 1, 2005, court records show.

    "He shoved a loaded revolver at the tellers, so close to them that they could see the bullets," Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracie Brown wrote in a sentencing memorandum.

    In sentencing Roberts on Thursday, U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White said the robber's criminal history began at the age of 9 and that Roberts lied during the trial when he claimed the "real" robber forced him to put on the clothes that he was wearing.

    "The defendant took the stand and concocted a preposterous story in which he cast himself as the victim of an armed carjacking and terrible case of mistaken identity. The jury rejected this plainly perjurious testimony," Brown wrote.

    The federal prosecutor added that Roberts "appears totally uninterested in controlling his behavior and leading a law-abiding life."

    White ordered Roberts to pay restitution and to forfeit a 1992 Cadillac Seville that federal prosecutors said was paid for by proceeds from the first bank robbery.
    Roberts was arrested after the second robbery following a high-speed car and foot chase, FBI Special Agent Brian Guy wrote in an affidavit.

    Re: Oogie's proudly presents "The Gene Pool Sideshow"

    A word to the wise.... if you are going to rob banks.. don't be someone noticable... like the son of the town's sheriff !!!

    James Cavallo Sr., Moore Township's acting police chief saw the signs his son might be using cocaine again — the unexplained disappearances, the excuses, the rapid weight loss.

    Cavallo Sr. said that when he picked up a newspaper Wednesday at a convenience store and saw the surveillance photo of an alleged bank robbery the day before, his heart sank. He was sure it showed his son standing before the teller with a note in his hand.

    Before he learned of the robbery, Cavallo Sr. had taken some time off from the job and spent some of it helping his son's wife care for their four children; Cavallo Jr. hadn't been home for two days.

    Cavallo Sr. said he called his son 20 times and left messages, but never got a callback. He suspected his son in the bank robbery when he saw the newspaper story with the surveillance photo and read about the white van used as the getaway car.

    Cavallo Sr. went to see Colonial Regional police Detective Gary Hammer and asked to see other photos from the robbery.

    ''When I saw those, that told me for sure,'' Cavallo said. ''It wasn't a hard decision at first, but as things went on, I felt sicker and sicker.''

    Police, accompanied by Cavallo Sr., found his son at home and confronted him with the bank photos. Father and son spoke briefly in a room alone, the affidavit states.

    Cavallo Jr. broke down and pulled out crumpled $20 bills from his pants pocket and led police to stashes of cash stored in another pair of pants and a bundle wrapped in two newspapers, according to the affidavit. Police recovered a total of $3,830.

    DePalma said a gun was not recovered.

    Cavallo Jr. was arraigned before Easton District Judge Gay Elwell on charges of robbery, theft and receiving stolen property.

    Cavallo Sr. said he worries some members of his family will hate him for turning in his son, but felt he had to do it.

    ''Those people at the bank were probably terrified,'' he said. ''What happens if he robs another bank and the alarms go off and the cops get there? What if he got himself shot and killed?''

    Cavallo Sr. said he can only hope for the best for his son, and even if he could afford the bail, he wouldn't pay it.

    ''My theory is: Maybe getting arrested is the first step to intervention,'' he said. ''I hope this does it, and I think this is what he needs.''

    The cats are from a litter I found in a box on my patio. When it became apparent the mom wasn't coming back, I gave them to my sister in law who helps foster cats.

    Re: Oogie's proudly presents "The Gene Pool Sideshow"

    Just to show that stupidity is rampant everywhere... I now give you the recent ruling of a Federal Judge who needs to get out of the gene pool.


    US federal judge declares boating illegal in all US navigable waters
    By IBI Magazine
    In a rather bizarre ruling that has marine industry officials worried, Judge Robert G. James of the United States District Court, Western Division of Louisiana, has said that it is criminal trespass for the American boating public to boat, fish, or hunt on the Mississippi River and other navigable waters in the US.
    In the case of Normal Parm v. Sheriff Mark Shumate, James ruled that federal law grants exclusive and private control over the waters of the river, outside the main shipping channel, to riparian landowners. The shallows of the navigable waters are no longer open to the public. That, in effect, makes boating illegal across most of the country.
    "Even though this action seems like a horrible pre-April fools joke, it is very serious," said Phil Keeter, MRAA president, in a statement. "Because essentially all the waters and waterways of our country are considered navigable in the US law, this ruling declares recreational boating, water skiing, fishing, waterfowl hunting, and fishing tournaments to be illegal and the public subject to jail sentences for recreating with their families."
    Last month, James rejected the findings of the Magistrate judge who found earlier that the American public had the right under federal law and Louisiana law to navigate, boat, fish, and hunt on the waters of the Mississippi river up to the normal high water line of the river. Judge James Kirk relied on the long established federal principles of navigation that recognized the public navigational rights "…entitles the public to the reasonable use of navigable waters for all legitimate purposes of travel or transportation, for boating, sailing for pleasure, as well as for carrying persons or property for hire, and in any kind of watercraft the use of which is consistent with others also enjoying the right possessed in common." "MRAA is working with the Coast Guard, state boating law administrators, and NMMA to fight this onerous ruling," said Glen Mazzella, MRAA chairman, in the statement.

    From Boulder CO.

    Perhaps the definition of real trouble is when even your alias is wanted by the law. That apparently was the case for a 45-year-old Denver man who was arrested on suspicion of criminal impersonation and a warrant for escape from Lakewood at a bar on the 2100 block of 13th Street at 1:24 p.m. Sept. 10, according to Boulder Police reports. Police said they initially contacted the man in regards to a reported theft of a purse at the bar, and when they ran his alias on the computers the name he had given them turned up wanted out of Texas for armed robbery. Quickly the suspect told police he had been using the name as an alias after finding a social security card about a week before, officers said. Police said the suspect's real name also turned up a non-extraditable warrant out of Oregon. The suspect was booked and held at Boulder County Jail.
