UPDATE: Iraq Puppy Video

HONOLULU — The Marine Corps is expelling one Marine and disciplining another for their roles in a video showing a Marine throwing a puppy off a cliff while on patrol in Iraq.
The 17-second video posted on YouTube drew sharp condemnation from animal rights groups when it came to light in March.
The clip shows two Marines joking before one hurls the puppy into a rocky gully. A yelping sound is heard as it flips through the air.
Marine Corps Base Hawaii said in a news release Wednesday that Lance Cpl. David Motari received unspecified "non-judicial punishment" and "is being processed for separation" from the Marine Corps.
The second Marine, Sgt. Crismarvin Banez Encarnacion also received unspecified "non-judicial punishment."

Are you missing a Boeing 727?

Vietnamese authorities say they are mystified as to who owns a Boeing 727 which has been abandoned at Hanoi's Noi Bai airport. The plane was flown in from Siem Reap in neighboring Cambodia in late 2007 and has been unclaimed ever since.
An airport official said that they believe the owners could be an airline based in Cambodia. The official said that if it remains unclaimed, the plane will have be scraped. The plane has a Cambodian flag on its fuselage and is emblazoned with the name Air Dream, but the authorities say they have no information about the airline.

It's amazing that someone out there is capable of,
misplacing an entire plane.

Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

Pa. man walks 25 miles to court for DUI sentencing
A man facing sentencing on a drunken-driving conviction couldn't get a ride to court. So he start walking. And walking.
Stephen Shoemaker was scheduled to appear at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday for sentencing.
Shoemaker, 33, of Shippensburg, doesn't have a car or driver's license. So he started hoofing it to the courthouse at dawn. He kept walking for about 25 miles in 90-plus-degree heat.
Shoemaker arrived about 3:30 p.m. - after a detour to a hospital, where he was treated for dehydration.
Judge Edward Guido had issued an arrest warrant when Shoemaker failed to appear. But he agreed to defer sentencing until July. Guido said he hesitated only because "that means he'll have to walk back to Shippensburg."
Deputy Public Defender Anthony Adams volunteered to give Shoemaker a ride home.
Man accused of stealing bus after friend's arrest
Conn. State troopers say an Enfield man was charged with stealing a school bus after telling officers he needed a ride home after a friend's arrest.
Peter Smario is due in Norwich Superior Court on June 19 on charges of larceny, drug possession, criminal trespass and possession of a weapon in a vehicle, police said.
Police said several drivers reported a yellow school bus driving erratically and hitting construction cones on Route 2 in Colchester. The vehicle had been taken from a nearby bus yard.
Police said Smario was carrying heroin, a knife and a large amount of cash when they arrested him during the Thursday night incident. Troopers say the 28-year-old told them his friend had been arrested earlier that evening, leaving him without a ride home.
The most stupid thief?
This is the moment when a mugger provided police with an unmistakable clue to his identity - by admiring his reflection in the lens of a CCTV camera.
The image shows the thief moments after he had stolen a £200 silver necklace and bracelet from a 16-year-old boy.
Rather than escape, he decided to try on the jewelry, apparently unaware - or unconcerned - that he was being filmed by the camera he was gazing into.

Man planned to drive around until sobering up
Before that happens, he hits car, ambulance
Police have heard many excuses from drunk drivers over the years.
A man told police he was driving around until he sobered up enough to go home when he was involved in a three-vehicle crash in which a MONOC ambulance overturned at the Route 70 circle, police said.
Edward T. Defreitas, 36, of Timberline Road was driving his 2003 Nissan 350 which struck a car, the ambulance and then a utility pole, which snapped at the base, leaving live wires on the car and in the road.
