Deanne Elshloz,44, was charged with domestic battery in Wesley Chapel, Fla., after hitting her husband, David, in the face with a glass. David, intoxicated, had enraged Deanne by completely missing the toilet bowl as he stood to urinate. Deanne then angrily charged after him but lost her footing on the urine-slippery floor.

The poor little thing was just hungry.

Article here.

A Nebraska man who called a woman “fat” at a party had one of his ears bitten off.

Lincoln authorities say around 3:25 a.m. Wednesday police were called to the hospital to talk to the victim, who said 21-year-old Anna Godfrey bit his ear off because he called her fat.

Going around eating ears isn't going to make her any skinnier.

(From Florida) Travis Neeley,19, was arrested in Lake City,Fla., for burglarizing a car, caught red-handed by the owner, who used the remote-control to lock Neeley inside. Neeley tried several times to unlock a door and exit, but each time, the owner relocked it before Neeley could get out, and he finally gave up and waited for the police.
You may have noticed that the article said the door got unlocked and relocked SEVERAL times. How many times is Several times? If it's a lot of times, it must have sure looked comical.

Oh.. so this thread went from one direction, to naming off odd crimes, to campaigning for president? While Ron might have some good ideas, there is no chance.

What would take over as the banking system if the fed went bye bye?

Although this news item is Not American but instead from Sweden-news, it's still pertinent for this thread since it involves prison. Sweden's Metro newspaper reported that a 21-year-old inmate at Kirseberg prison in Malmo faces discipline for continuing his protests against jail conditions by aiming his Gas-passing directly at guards.

Your acknowledgement of Gas-passing as an actual talent, although meant as a joke, is actually true. Because in vaudeville, there was a performer who would actually pass gas at will, on stage. I'm pretty sure I saw it in a book by Ricky Jay. I'm sure a number of you at this forum must have read that Ricky Jay book too.

Ricky Jay discusses Le Petomane in his book Learned Pigs and Fireproof Women.

I think that I am more of an amature at it. I saw on TV a Hollywood agency that specialized in odd talent, and they had a gas lighting performer. I saw a Scotish man on Leno that vomited things up for a living. My X wife was able to make her tassels twirl in opposit directions. I had an old girl friend that could tie a cherry stem in a knot with her tongue. There was a gut in my high school class that could burp all day long. I saw a woman once who could blow a bubble inside of a bubble. Oh yes there is undiscovered talent out there my friends.

At some point,the thread deviated from its topic, so now we get back on track. The following odd-crime does Not make sense,so maybe somebody could enlighten: "Clair Arthur Smith,42,of Cape Coral,Fla., was charged with forgery after he allegedly tried to doctor the amount of a check he had received from Bank Of America. Converting the "$10.00" check to $100, or even $100,000, would seem plausible, but Smith tried to deposit the check into his account after he had marked it up to "269,951.00." Why in blazes would he doctor it that way instead? Isn't it like begging to be caught?

Do you think maybe he is stupid?
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

From Virginia news: Sean Almond,43, was charged with allegedly robbing a Kangaroo Mart in Suffolk, Va. Almond was caught immediately after the robbery when he was spotted in a nearby alley, where he had been overcome by a sudden urge to relieve himself.

From Florida news: Three men and two juveniles were charged with burglary in Silver Springs Shores, Fla., following a break-in that netted them electronics and jewelry and what they thought was a stash of Cocaine. The men told police they had snorted some of the powder. The police report identified the powder as the cremated ashes of the resident's late father. Some of the ashes were later recovered.

I'm not sure how this thread transitioned from a discussion about how many Americans are incarcerated to "America's Dumbest Criminals," but getting back to the original discussion, those who think we're putting too MANY people in prison can take solace in the fact that professional sack-of-excrement George Villanueva, despite 28 prior arrests, including convictions for burglary and robbery, at least 23 domestic violence complaints, and multiple violations of a restraining order, was, nonetheless, free and on the streets long enough to (allegedly) kill a military veteran and NYPD officer over the weekend.

I think (and I'm not an expert, but have done some research on this) that one reason that some people who should be in prison aren't is because of overcrowding. And one reason for overcrowding was the closure of so many asylums after the invention of anti-psychotic medications that nobody is making sure those who need them are taking after they are thrown onto the streets. And nobody likes taking anti-psychotics because they have extremely unpleasant side effects. So those people go off their meds, hut people, and are now taking up a lot of prison rescources that they shouldn't be.
And if those people were in asylums where they could be properly treated then there would be more room for the criminals who need to be in jail.

Again, just my interpretation, and I understand that my point of view is only one small piece of a very complex puzzle.
