He’ll sue because she didn’t provide a safe working environment.

The Merced County Sheriff’s Department said Quinn was shot and killed Dec. 16 when a former golf course employee, Franco Garcia Aguilar, 21, walked onto the golf course and shot and killed the dog who was boarded in his kennel near the course’s maintenance area.

Hot date failed
At least she can honestly say to her friends the next day “My date was hot!” A Swedish man’s attempt to impress his girlfriend on Friday night backfired, putting him in the hospital with serious burn injuries and facing allegations of endangering the public. The woman told police in Västervik in south eastern Sweden that her boyfriend poured gasoline over his arm and set the fuel on fire. “It obviously didn’t go well. He burned his arm and other parts of his body and was in a state of shock,” said Kalmar police spokesperson Reine Johansson to the TT news...
Playing Tag with a hungry Polar Bear
Why did this guy Lock His Doors? Do seals steal car stereos? After a few laps of the car the bear almost caught up, managing to land a few heavy swipes on his prey. The man eventually managed to take refuge in a neighboring truck which was unlocked. His back and head were covered in more than 100 deep scratches where the massive claws had managed to rip through his thick winter clothes and padded coat. Barrow is the northernmost town of the United States, 340 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Link to source...
Fire Department Kicks down wrong door
I would rather have seen the fire department come in, hoses a-blazing vs the police. Firefighters are apologizing after mixing up street addresses during a training exercise in Hamilton and smashing down the wrong door. Deputy Fire Chief Greg Robbins said he directed firefighters to what he thought was a vacant, city-owned home to run training drills on Friday.Instead the crew broke down the door at the home of Mike and Cathy Grosse, causing $1,000 in damage.

Chuck E. Cheese – Where a kid can blow up used condoms
Gotta be tastier than their food, right? The contraceptive was out of the wrapper, she said, and a parent told her that another child was seen blowing it up — as if it were a balloon. “My son was playing in the tubes, and my husband was watching him,” Roni Tilton said. “My husband looked up, and when he did, [my son] was playing with a condom.” “When I hear ‘condom’ and ‘4-year-old’ in the same sentence, I have a problem right there,” said Linda Braerman, whose son was having another birthday party at the eatery. The party had just...
The great Indian witch hunt
Everyone knows that trial by drowning or fire is the only real way to be sure.. Indian police began a probe on Monday into reports that villagers in a tribal area of central India beat 50 women with sticks after accusing them of witchcraft, and cut off their hair. The villagers acted on the advice of a local spiritual man who said the assault would protect them from evil spirits, in a forest in a poor district of Chhattisgarh state, 400km (250 miles) from the capital Raipur, police said. Dozens of women are killed every year on suspicion of being...
Oh you WILL wear shorts
That ho, doesn’t know what her mom’s generation went through for the rights  to wear slacks.

Robert Holding delivered the drug – which he kept in an egg box – while doing his daily milk round. Burnley Crown Court was told that he had 17 customers and built up his trade through “word of mouth”. udge Beverley Lunt said Holding told police that the drug “was for elderly people who had aches and pains”.
