Greetings fellow Bizarros:

If you can keep your mom from getting high, that's good. But if you can also make a few quick bucks while doing it, so much the better, right? That was the attitude of the young man in today's story, unfortunately for him, his mother did not appreciate his altruism.

A Florida mother was arrested and given a court order to stay away from her son after she was arrested for burning her son's hand on a stove as punishment. The boy and his sister were placed in the custody of a family member.

34-year-old Zayme Flores of Orlando, is accused of burning the hands of her 15-year-old son on a hot stove as punishment for him selling her drugs.

Police said the concerned son took a bag marijuana, which he found under the sink of his parents' bathroom, and sold it so that they would not get high.

When Flores learned of her son's actions, she forced his hand onto a hot stove and burned him.

When police arrived at the family's home, they said that the boy had blisters on his hands consistent with being burned.

Flores was arrested on charges of felony child abuse and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

*-- More Than One Way to Earn Your Allowance --*

A woman was arrested on a charge of child neglect after allegedly forcing her children to blow into an anti-drunk driving device in her car so she would be able to drive while under the influence of alcohol, according to police in Oklahoma. Police said that they have arrested 36-year-old Kayla Kathleen Martin-Weliwita, after being accused of being drunk in public and asking others to unlock her car by blowing into the ignition interlock system outside the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant. According to the police investigation, Martin-Weliwita forced her 13-year-old and 9-year-old daughters to blow into the ignition-interlock system because she was too intoxicated to override the device and start her car. Employees of the Buffalo Wild Wings called police after seeing the woman fighting with her daughter in the parking lot. Martin-Weliwita was charged with child neglect, child abuse and public intoxication. She was booked into the Tulsa Jail, and her bail was set at $100,100.


*-- Bride in Wedding Gown Saves Woman With CPR --*

A newlywed woman still in her bridal gown after her wedding reception stopped on her way to a Pittsburgh hotel to give CPR to an unresponsive woman. Julie Stroyne Nixon left her wedding reception with husband just before midnight, when they heard a call for help outside of the Westin Convention Center. "We were just about to go through the doors," Nixon told said, "and then we heard somebody scream, 'Does anybody know CPR? Is anybody a doctor?'" Nixon, a trauma nurse, jumped into action. "I looked over, and I think my nursing instincts took over," she said, "And I bolted over to the bench to see if she was all right." Nixon said the woman was barely breathing when she arrived. "I started compressions right away. They told me she didn't have a pulse," she said. The newlywed nurse said the woman gradually started to recover. "Never knew that would happen on my wedding night!" Nixon said. "There's no time off."

Lewis, if your money isn't even safe from the cops in your bank account, what are you supposed to do to protect yourself? Are you sure this story isn't bogus?
[The Fourth Amendment. That guarantees the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures. That is the first, and unfortunately last line of defense against unjustified civil asset forfeiture. Just say no (to quote Nancy Reagan). As I mentioned in the last issue, they can still arrest and search you and your vehicle and your belongings, but they have to jump through a few more hoops to do it. The Fifth Amendment is also helpful in situations like those.]

Lewis, if you got nothing to hide then you got nothing to be afriad of.
[I can't tell if you're trying to be sarcastic (I hope you are), but if you are not all you have to do is look up a few of the many stories on the Internets about innocent people; private citizens, small business owners, who have been robbed, in a very literal sense, by the government or the law enforcement community, and had to pay in order to get their property back. We call that extortion. They had nothing to hide. Ask them if they are afraid.]

Do you think the cops 'seized' that guy's chastity device after they arrested him for drunk driving? Dressing like that in public has GOT to be a criminal offense.
