Small Bits of News You Didn’t Know you Needed

15-year-old Girl, Faces Child Porn Charges After 'Sexting'
A 15-year-old girl from Clearfield Pennsylvania faces child pornography charges after police say she sent nude pictures of herself over the Internet.
Clearfield County District Attorney William Shaw says the girl has been charged as a juvenile with possessing, distributing and creating child pornography.
The girl is living with her mother. Authorities say the girl sent the pictures after communicating in June 2007 with a 27-year-old man over the MySpace networking Web site.
The practice has been called "sexting" for the prevalence of teens to transmit images via a cell phone.
Shaw says the man has also been charged with unlawful sexual activity. State police found the images on the man's computer.
Urine-soaked man with a beer on top of truck, gets DUI
The 50-year-old driver had a beer can on top of his pick-up truck and was drinking a cold Natural Ice when the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Deputy approached.
The situation for Johnnie Ed Roberts, who had bloodshot eyes and incoherent speech, likely did not improve late Wednesday when investigators noticed he was urinated on himself while they spoke to him on North 27th Street.
"I told him to grab his right shoe and he just looked down at his feet and started stumbling around saying what shoe," the recently-released affidavit states.
He reportedly interrupted a deputy as the deputy asked whether he’d perform field sobriety exercises, saying, "You a mother (expletive) and ain’t all that."
Roberts was arrested on a DUI charge and urinated in the deputy’s patrol vehicle on the ride to jail. At the jail, Roberts "urinated again all over himself."
Rather than blow into the breath test machine, Roberts tried to suck the air out and then stopped blowing.
95,000 wanting concealed weapon permits in Fla.
The election of Barack Obama has been a boon for gun dealers, and with more than 200 gun shows a year, few markets are hotter than Florida.
Floridians in record numbers want to carry concealed weapons, a trend linked to a surge in crime, economic anxiety and fears of stricter gun laws.
And now the state is buried under a backlog of 95,000 applications for concealed weapons permits, and it needs to hire a lot more people to handle the paperwork. A legislative panel Wednesday gave Agriculture Commissioner Charles Bronson the okay to spend $3.9 million more so he can hire 61 temporary workers.
"Once the economy gets bad, crime always goes up," said Bronson, a certified police officer. "People get desperate whenever things are not going the way they feel like they should be going, and they'll do things they normally wouldn't do."

That's Just One State

And how many of those 95,000 were waiting for permits BEFORE the election, and therefore have nothing to do with who is president? Florida has 200 gun shows a year, and that was before the election. So maybe Florida is just full of whack-jobs.

Mans privates got severed for £50
Muggers castrated a man after he refused to give them £50 to buy drugs.
Horrified victim Karolj Pasanski was pinned to the ground by two gangsters while a third expertly sliced off his testicles with a sharp blade.
The bloodied 43-year-old staggered for a mile to the nearest hospital in Subotica, Serbia, clutching his severed genitals in his hand.
Surgeons managed to save Pasanski's life - but couldn't replace his testicles.
"It was a very neat job with two small cuts. The attacker clearly has some sort of experience and training - possibly from castrating animals," said one of the docs.
