Russian Cops Ban Short Skirts After Skirts Get Too Short
The Huffington Post | By Andres Jauregui

Posted: 06/25/2014 9:36 am EDT Updated: 06/25/2014 9:59 am EDT Print ArticleRUSSIAN COPS SHORT SKIRTS

In Russian police force, uniform modifies you!

Or at least the public's perception of you. That is the principal argument behind the Russian Interior Ministry's recent ban on short skirts and other uniform modifications, the Moscow Times reports.

"When you meet people, the first thing you see is their clothing, and for a police officer fulfilling his duties, it is crucial to have a tidy and neat appearance. From time to time, we have seen instances of officers improperly wearing their uniforms. … Heads [of departments] must pay more attention to the appearance of their subordinates," Deputy Interior Minister Sergei Gerasimov said in a memo obtained by Russian newspaper Izvestia.

The Moscow Times reports that the ban was imposed to counteract a growing trend of rising hemlines among female officers, as well as a tendency of male officers to cut off their shirt sleeves. Department heads are encouraged to inspect uniforms daily to make sure they're appropriate.

Here's a photo that allegedly depicts a small group of infractions just waiting to happen:

How do you make a protesting statement about the EPA ?

EPA allegedly asks employees to stop polluting workplace environment by pooping in the hallway

By Evan Bleier | June 25, 2014 at 2:40 PM | 2 Comments

DENVER, June 25 (UPI) --According to Government Executive, an Environmental Protection Agency regional office sent an email to workers asking them to clean up their acts, specifically in, and outside of, the bathroom.
The email that was obtained by GE was allegedly sent to employees at an EPA office in Denver. In the note, Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor mentioned that the EPA had "consulted" with a workplace violence expert because of "several incidents" in the building.

Those incidents included bathroom bandits using paper towels to clog toilets and "an individual placing feces in the hallway" outside the restroom.

"National expert" John Nicoletti advised the EPA that poop in the hallway at work was a "health and safety risk." (Not sure why an expert would be needed to dispense that revelation.)

Nicoletti characterized the behavior as "very dangerous" and cautioned that the public pooper(s) would "probably escalate" their actions. "Management is taking this situation very seriously and will take whatever actions are necessary to identify and prosecute these individuals," Cantor wrote in the email.

EPA spokesman Richard Mylott released the following statement about the issue:

"EPA cannot comment on ongoing personnel matters. EPA's actions in response to recent workplace issues have been deliberate and have focused on ensuring a safe work environment for our employees. Our brief consultation with Dr. Nicoletti on this matter, a resource who regularly provides our office with training and expertise on workplace issues, reflects our commitment to securing a safe workplace."

Idaho family upset that police didn't arrest naked, drunken man who pooped on their carpet

The Gillaspys might have a point there...
By Evan Bleier | June 24, 2014 at 11:28 AM |

KUNA , Idaho, June 24 (UPI) --What do you have to do to get arrested in Idaho?
A Kuna family is upset that a naked, drunken man who allegedly pooped on their carpet and flooded their kitchen was only cited with two misdemeanors but not arrested.

The Gillaspys woke up to a naked man walking around in their bedroom early on Sunday morning, but he quickly sprinted off into another room.

"My husband grabs the gun because we have no idea who this guy is," Tricia Gillaspy told KTVB. "He's like, 'Get out of my house, now!' But the guy wouldn't leave. So, he puts the gun to his head, and says, 'I said, get out!'"

The suspect, Matthew Coomes, left the home after 911 was called, but he was still milling around outside when police arrived.

Then everyone saw what the 25-year-old allegedly did downstairs.

"He took this sink sprayer out and this drawer was in there. He put it in the drawer, turned it on full blast hot water, it filled that entire drawer full. It flooded my entire kitchen," Gillaspy said.

"He craps on my floor, and he must have been playing in it because he streaked it down the side of my walls. The stain is gone finally, thank goodness."
Instead of being arrested, Coomes was cited with two misdemeanors.

The Kuna Police have since admitted that the responding officer probably should have arrested Coomes and it's possible that Ada County prosecutors could charge him with a felony count of malicious injury to property.

California mayor caught on camera throwing dog poop on neighbor's property


By Evan Bleier | June 11, 2014 at 7:57 AM |


SAN MARINO, Calif., June 11 (UPI) --Politics really is a dirty business.
A California mayor was caught on camera tossing a bag of dog poop onto the walkway of a man who opposes the mayor's stance on a nearby dog park.

San Marino Mayor Dennis Kneier can be seen tossing a sealed bag of dog feces onto the private walkway of his neighbor, Philip Lao, in surveillance footage.

In the video, Kneier's wife points at the walkway and then he tosses the bag. The Kneiers do not own a dog.

"I made a mistake of putting it in his walkway," Kneier told the Whittier Daily News. "Rather than leaving it, I should have walked on by or disposed of it properly." He has also formally apologized to Lao with a letter.

That might not be good enough.

"He thinks that he can just smooth things over. He thinks that he can have the police drop it," Lao told KTLA. "But I will pursue it. I'm in touch with a lawyer, and we're thinking of pursuing harassment."

Lao has protested against the nearby dog park in the past and also has "no poop zone" signs in his front lawn. According to Lao, Kneier does not care for his signs.

Man arrested while trying to burn feces-packed paper bag behind Seattle police precinct

By Evan Bleier | June 3, 2014 at 2:12 PM |

SEATTLE, June 3 (UPI) --A Washington man was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of reckless burning after he allegedly was caught burning a bag of his own poop behind the Seattle Police Department's East Precinct.
The 31-year-old man was allegedly torching his feces in a paper bag on Sunday morning in an alley behind the precinct when officers went over to investigate. The blaze, which was about three feet away from trash bins stuffed with trash and paper, was quickly extinguished.

The man admitted to starting the fire and told police he had "taken a (poop) and was trying to burn the (poop) away," according to KOMO.

The man also claimed he was unaware it was illegal "to burn bags of feces behind police stations."

Police reported that a crew from the Seattle Fire Department "mercifully came and hosed down the alley."

Seattle woman arrested for throwing cat poop and frozen chicken at cancer fundraiser runners

By Evan Bleier | June 3, 2014 at 8:52 AM |

SEATTLE, June 3 (UPI) --A Seattle woman apparently upset about being woken up by runners raising money for cancer expressed her frustration by tossing garbage at them from her fifth-floor apartment.
The woman threw items including a frozen chicken breast, cans and a trash bag containing 5 to 10 pounds of kitty litter at people who were participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on Sunday morning.

The unidentified woman also threw a green "superfood" drink that hit a man in his 60s. A 13-year-old girl was struck by the frozen chicken breast and left with a welt, according to the Seattle Police Department.

When police went to the woman's apartment, she said she'd "worked a long shift and was angry that the runners had woken her from her slumber."

She was arrested and booked for assault and a misdemeanor trespassing warrant.

Michigan zoo is selling exotic animal poop to raise money

By Evan Bleier | May 29, 2014 at 9:58 AM |


BATTLE CREEK, Mich., May 29 (UPI) --A Michigan zoo will be holding a fecal fundraiser this spring in order to raise money.
The Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek will be selling exotic animal poop from zebras, antelopes, giraffes and other herbivores at two "Zoo Doo" events on Thursday, May 29 and Thursday, June 5.

During the events, gardeners can pick up a mound of manure to bring home at the price of $25 a load for zoo members and $30 for non-members.

"It's through gate admission, events and programs -- like Zoo Doo and many others -- that allows us to remain open and to feed and care for our animals, many of which are endangered or threatened," Binder Park marketing manager Kari Parker told the Battle Creek Enquirer. "Zoo Doo is a fun and creative way for the Zoo to receive funds to help care for our animals and dispose of our compost."

Compost made with feces from carnivores or monkeys will not be available.

"There could be contamination if there's a disease," said horticulturist Frank Cummins. "Like a lot of the carnivores and stuff, there could be a possibility that there's something in it, whereas with herbivores it's just plants and stuff -- there's like zero chance."

Woman charged with child abuse for allegedly forcing 3-year-old to eat feces as punishment

By Evan Bleier | May 20, 2014 at 10:54 AM |

TEMPE, Ariz., May 20 (UPI) --An Arizona woman was arrested Saturday on child abuse charges after she allegedly forced a 3-year-old girl to eat her own feces as punishment after she went to the bathroom in the bathtub.
Nicole Candelaria was booked into the Tempe City Jail on one count of child abuse after she allegedly held down her boyfriend's daughter and forced her to eat her own poop and then put soap in her mouth.

Candelaria was also in charge of watching the girl's siblings, ages 3 and 5.

The 27-year-old has denied the girl's accusations, but the 3-year-old's siblings have corroborated their sister's story.

During an examination, "bruising was observed on the girl's chest, back, sides and legs," CBS 5 reported.

According to Candelaria, the bruise on the girl's back occurred after she was playing with her and hit her too hard.

This is the Story of a Portly Horse named Murphy...ah, er...
Oh, sorry a "Portland" horse named Murphy !

Murphy the Portland Police Bureau horse

Officer Cassandra Wells says Murphy did a great job helping her make an arrest last week.
A horse that earned his way onto the Portland Police Bureau's Mounted Patrol Unit last year after dropping 200 pounds and getting in shape was credited with making his first collar last week.

Murphy, carrying Officer Cassandra Wells, chased down a man suspected of breaking into a building in Old Town and kept him trapped next to a building until cops could slip cuffs on him.

"We were flagged down because someone was trying to break into a building," Wells said. "He took off, and so did we."

The suspect ran about six blocks -- Murphy galloping after him -- before the big horse cornered him.

"It was the first time Murphy has been involved in an arrest," Wells said. "He did everything I needed him to do.'

He got a treat at the end of the shift, she said.

The arrest was the latest chapter in Murphy's story, one that began in 2012 when a horse in the Mounted Patrol Unit became sick and had to be put down.

As the unit's equestrian and training instructor, Jennifer Mack had to find a horse to replace the beautiful and majestic Ian, considered the best horse to have ever served in the nine-horse unit.

Mack had been making calls across the Pacific Northwest, but had been unable to find a horse to join unit -- which started in the 1900s, fell victim to the Great Depression and was resurrected in 1979. In all those years, only three horses had ever died on duty.

Mack had looked at more than 20 horses on the Internet, made calls to owners and gone to check some out in person. She brought in two horses for a tryout, but neither made the cut.

Then one day, she clicked on a Craigslist ad for a horse. She studied the photograph, read the description and called the owners who lived in Roseburg.

The horse was named Murphy after "Murphy's Law," a play on the idea that if something can go wrong it will.

Mack sensed the horse had possibilities and bought Murphy. He arrived at the mounted patrol barn in Northwest Portland in December 2012. He had 30 days to make the first cut. He weighed 1,900 pounds, about 200 pounds too many. The unit didn't have a saddle big enough to fit around him.

Over the next year, he lost the weight, learned how to be a police horse and finally went out on the street to train. Now an official member of the Mounted Patrol Unit, he has turned out to be a great horse and is now considered second best in the unit.

J...WTG, Murphy !

Family of faggot fans fly the flag

The Doody family hope to raise profile of faggots
A West Midlands family is playing a central role in the quest to raise the profile of a forgotten British dish - faggots.
The Doody family from Wolverhampton has been crowned The Faggot Family in a national competition, and to kick off their reign they will launch National Faggot Week.

The family will be touring the country extolling the virtues of the dish, which is best-known for its links with the Black Country.

The Doody family were chosen to front the campaign after impressing judges at the Savoy Hotel in London in November.

Faggot facts
Faggots were called "savoury ducks" in the Middle Ages
Faggots were named after the Latin word for bundle
Faggots were originally made with pig's liver and offal
Faggots are now made from pork liver and pork
Fans have published the Good Faggot Guide


They displayed their fanaticism for the delicacy during quizzes, role-plays and mock commercials.

"The nation knows that the Cornish pasty, Yorkshire pudding, haggis and fish and chips are great British dishes, but all too often the faggot is left off that list," said Janet Doody.

Her husband Fred added: "It's unfair because faggots were a British delicacy long before any of the others.

"The great British faggot is full of flavour and a great belly warmer at this time of year."

The family, including Lewis, 13, and Grace, 7, eat faggots twice a week, with mashed potato and mushy peas, and will be launching the awareness campaign on Tuesday at Liverpool University, followed by visits this week to Nottingham, Leeds, Sheffield and Birmingham.

The competition was organised by faggot producer Mr Brain's Faggots.

Not really a bar, they serve no alcohol, but...
..the waitresses wear guns !

Shooters in Rifle serves a big helping of Second Amendment

A sign on the door at Shooters in Rifle welcomes people carrying guns.

RIFLE — When waitress Ashlee Saenz takes your order at Shooters Grill in Rifle, she not only carries a pad and pen — she also packs a loaded Ruger .357 Blackhawk handgun holstered on her leg, Old West style.

It’s loaded and she knows how to use it.

Saenz and her co-workers, along with customers who come into Shooters, are encouraged by Shooters’ owners to pack heat in the restaurant, as allowed by Colorado law.

The restaurant also hosts concealed carry training — the $75 price tag includes dinner — that qualifies customers for Colorado and Utah permits.

In a nation torn in recent years by emotional Second Amendment debates, fueled in part by mass shootings, there’s no such controversy in this town of 9,200 that’s centered in ranch and natural gas country.

A sign on the front door of Shooters Grill reads, “Guns are welcome on premises. Please keep all weapons holstered, unless the need arises. In such cases, judicious marksmanship is appreciated.”

Shooters owner Lauren Boebert of Rifle said she is simply allowing customers and employees to exercise their constitutional right.

“We encourage it, and the customers love that they can come here and express their rights,” Boebert said. “This country was founded on our freedom. People can come in carrying their gun, and they can pray over their food.”

Boebert was born in Florida, raised in Aurora and moved to Rifle in 2003, where she met her husband, Jayson. They decided to open a restaurant a little more than a year ago and tried to come up with a good name that would suit the town.

“I consulted with my Christian friends and everyone said ‘Shooters’ sounded like a bar or a strip joint,” Lauren Boebert said with a laugh. “But I thought, this is Rifle — it was founded around guns and the Old West. We called it Shooters and started throwing guns and Jesus all over the place.”

The decor of Shooters — which offers American and Mexican fare and does not serve alcohol — is decidedly Old West, with guns and cowboy art on the walls, a rough-hewn woody look and three large silver crosses that reflect Boebert’s strong religious faith.

Wayne and Martha Greenwald are from a small town called Grand Marais in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and come to Shooters whenever they’re in town. The couple fully support allowing people to carry guns in the restaurant.

“We think it’s just fine — we’re very positive about it,” Wayne Greenwald said. “We carry guns ourselves and own a rifle, shotgun and handguns. We live in a very small town and we take care of our own crime problems. No one comes to Grand Marais to break into someone’s house.”

Violent crime is rare in Rifle — the name, by lore, comes from when a cowboy surveyor left his gun leaning against a tree alongside a creek. The town had its first-ever bank robbery in May 2011, and reported no homicides and one robbery in 2013.

Police Chief John Dyer said the last shooting death was in 2001, when Michael Steven Stagner shot seven people, killing four. Stagner, who targeted Latinos and ranted about illegal immigrants during his rampage, was found not guilty by reason of insanity and is confined to a mental institution.

Dyer is OK with Shooters’ business model. “If it was a bar, I might be saying something different. But I have no problem with it,” he said. “And besides, they make a really good burger.”

The 55-seat restaurant also offers regular classes to qualify for a concealed carry permit — complete with dinner.

Held every other month, the five-hour training seminar is conducted by Utah-based Legal Heat, which offers the classes around the country, usually at sports shops. The event hosted at Shooters qualifies people to obtain concealed carry permits in Colorado and Utah. The May class drew 25 people; the next session is July 22. Boebert said she will offer the deal monthly if demand is sufficient.

To get a concealed carry permit after the training, residents must fill out an application and be fingerprinted. Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario decides whether to issue permits after reviewing applications and background checks.

“I encourage people to get a concealed handgun permit,” Vallario said. “I think there’s this misunderstanding that we can always be there. But I’ve got about one deputy per 1,000 people. People have the absolute constitutional right to protect themselves.”

He said the county’s number of permits and applications has been steady for several years. Through June 20 this year, the sheriff’s office has issued 124 new permits and 190 renewals (a permit is good for five years). That pace is down from 534 new permits issued and 277 renewals last year.

The sheriff urges leaving guns at home in some situations.

“Guns and alcohol, just like alcohol and driving, are not a good mix together,” Vallario said.

Certain people, including convicted felons or those with known substance abuse or mental problems, are not allowed to possess firearms.

Colorado gun-control supporters say they favor concealed carry over open carry because of the permitting requirements.

“We stand behind the Second Amendment, but we don’t encourage people to carry guns as a public display in places like stores or restaurants,” said Jennifer Hope of Golden, the Colorado chapter leader for the national Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, founded in 2012 after the Sandy Hook school shooting in Connecticut. “If there was a problem in a store and it got robbed or something happened, how would you know who were the good guys and who were the bad guys?”

It’s unlikely a whole lot of bad guys will visit Shooters, but the guns the workers carry are the real deal. Some people think it’s all part of a costume.

“No, they’re real and they’re loaded, and we know what we’re doing,” Boebert said with a smile. “I fear for anyone who tries to rob us.”

Accused murderer refuses to shower, sickens other inmates

Published July 03, 2014Associated Press

NAPLES, Fla. – A Southwest Florida man accused of killing his wife and five children is rejecting his legal name and refusing to shower.

The Naples Daily News reports that a late June incident report indicates the smell coming from Mesac Damas' cell has gotten so bad it's making other inmates sick.

Damas refused deputies' orders and was sprayed with pepper spray after hiding under his bunk. He also says his name is no longer Damas, but COG, meaning Child of God.

Jail logs show Damas, who turned 38 on Wednesday, has refused to shower since June 4. He returned to the Naples Jail May 29 after 56 days at a state mental hospital.

He's been jailed since the 2009 killings. A judge will hear from doctors about his competency in August.

J...he should be really "ripe" by August ! :roll:

HELSINKI (AP) — A Finnish couple has narrowly won the 19th World Wife Carrying Championships — a quirky competition in which men race to be the fastest while carrying a female teammate.
Ville Parviainen and Janette Oksman cleared the grueling 253.5 meter (278-yard) obstacle course in 63.75 seconds on Saturday, less than a second ahead of Britain's Rich Blake Smith and Anna Marguerite Smith.
Thirty-six couples from a dozen countries including Australia, Japan, and the United States took part in the race, which was held in the central Finnish municipality of Sonkajarvi, north of the capital, Helsinki.
The rules stipulate that the woman must be over 17 years of age and weigh at least 49 kilograms (108 lb). Despite the event's name couples don't have to be married, and organizers say male contestants could "borrow a neighbor's wife" if they didn't have a female companion.
The men can carry their teammate in various ways, though a popular method is for the woman to hang upside-down with her legs around the male contestant's shoulders.
Finland has established itself as a prime venue for unusual events including international air guitar, swamp soccer and mobile phone throwing competitions.

"less sexy; better for sex..."

Less Sexy, Better for Sex
By DELIA EPHRON JULY 5, 2014


IN inventing a self-driving car, Google has in one fell swoop struck a blow at masculinity, female empowerment, romance, sex and action heroes. It may even violate two of our three inalienable rights — liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

But let’s not get negative.

In early tests the buglike car logged thousands of miles in Mountain View, Calif. This electric car has two buttons (stop/go and emergency), and no brakes or pedals. (A version with a manual control that lets the driver take over is expected to be legal on California roads next year.)

In American middle-class life, driving is independence. Remember your learner’s permit and that first venture out: you in the driver’s seat, Mom or Dad coaching? With the Google car, say goodbye to all that bonding as well as the psychological growth that switch-around embodies.

I remember being on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, my dad suggesting that I change lanes, and being too terrified to do it. And then I did.

On my 16th birthday, I got my license. Hello, freedom. To pass the test I had to parallel park, and it is still one of the things I do best. Afterward I was proud. I picked up a friend and drove us to the beach. With Google cars, there is nothing to learn, nothing to master. This car fosters passivity, nurtures infancy. It has no driver, only passengers.

Over the years, I have grown to feel that the greatest thing about driving is that, if I really need to get somewhere or really need to get away from somewhere, I can do it. Essential to that sense of security and power is that I am actually doing the driving. Now I imagine running out, jumping into the car, and having to call tech support.

Suppose O. J. Simpson hadn’t been in an S.U.V.? Suppose he was heading down the freeway in a Google car? Could Google have stopped it?

According to news reports, the cars don’t drive independently yet. Two Google employees monitor the cars, ready to take over at any time. Edward Snowden claimed in his NBC interview with Brian Williams that the United States government can turn your cellphone on and off and listen in. If the government can do that, will it also be able to turn your car off and on? Apparently so, because Google can do that while it tests it. Can the company eavesdrop on your car talk? Run you into a wall or over a cliff? Can Google have your car take you to the police station? Good? Or goodbye to the open road. To Jack Kerouac, Route 66 and all that.

Think about it this way. Your parents could put “parental controls” on the Google car. Travel more than four blocks from home and it will turn around and bring you back. This car gives helicopter parenting a whole new frontier.

Impalas, Mustangs, Porsches, convertibles, pickup trucks, sports cars inspire adventure. They make us want to take off, explore. They are sexy. My husband has never forgotten cruising coolly around in his powder blue Impala convertible. I remember swooning at the beat-up MG of one of my boyfriends. These cars fired our imaginations.

Suppose Thelma and Louise were on the run in the Google car. Louise is not behind the wheel. There is no wheel. No Thunderbird. No top down. Imagine James Bond in a Google car. No, don’t imagine any of this, it’s too depressing.

The upsides: much safer. It is estimated that more than 90 percent of accidents are caused by human error. No gas, better for the environment, no more designated drivers. Soon everyone will be able to get drunk. You will be able to text while you drive, picnic, put on makeup, and have sex, although from the look of the tiny two-seater that isn’t going to be easy.

New positions may have to be invented. It will be cramped and you might throw out your back.

While writing this on my computer, I went to Dictionary.com to get the definition of sexy. The third definition read, “excitingly appealing; glamorous: a sexy new car.”

They’ll have to change that, won’t they? They’ll have to upgrade sexy to take the car out of it.
