Greetings fellow Bizarros:

Police arrested a 14-year-old girl after she took revenge against her stepmother by burning down her home.

Police in Roswell, New Mexico, said that the 14-year-old girl is accused of deliberately burning her house. Police believe that the fire started after the girl got into an argument with her stepmother.

The woman and the teenager were arguing over the fact that the girl skipped school. When the stepmother and her two children went outside the home, a fire broke out.

Fire investigators discovered a bottle of charcoal lighter fluid in the backyard and they believe it was the accelerant the girl used to start the fire.

A male at the scene was hospitalized for smoke inhalation. It took firefighters about half an hour to put out the flames. The home was totally destroyed.

Police said that the girl was seen running from the house after it was set on fire. She was booked into the Juvenile Chaves County Detention Center on suspicion of arson. So at least she has a roof over her head. The stepmother, on the other hand, is SOL.

Bizarrely,
Lewis

*-- Man Appears In Court In Spider-Man Costume --*

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can, if that included kicking tourists for not giving him a tip. This particular web-slinger, Abdelamine el-Khezzani, is the kind of Spider-Man who gives the costumed characters who stalk Times Square in New York a bad name. For the second time in months he appeared in court for assault charges. This time it was for kicking a Virginia woman who wouldn't tip him after he posed for pictures with her kids. el-Khezzani said that he told Rodney Merrill and Margaretta Patman that he worked for tips, but after the pics were snapped and the tourists attempted to walk away, that is when Spidey got aggressive. el-Khezzani wore his Spidey costume to court where Justice Laura Ward told him, "Have you heard the expression 'Three strikes and you're out'? If you come to the plate and you strike out a third time, you're out" Ward warned el-Khezzani that if he is arrested again, "bail will be set so high that you won't be able to get out." Outside the Manhattan Criminal Court building el-Khezzani struck a Spider-Man pose for cameras and told a reporter that he was innocent. It is not reported whether he asked the reporter for a tip after his picture was taken.

*---------- Don't Say You Weren't Warned ----------*

A homeowner who has a sign with the words 'We don't dial 911' right above the image of a handgun hanging outside her house shot an armed intruder who broke into her Indianapolis home. A mother reportedly heard the man enter her home through a window in her baby's room, so she took out her firearm. Neighbors say the man fired his gun at her first, and she fired back, striking him multiple times. The man was taken to an Indianapolis hospital, police said. Authorities also revealed that the intruder was carrying zip ties and a walkie talkie.

*-------------- READER COMMENTS --------------*

LEWIS; This story reminds me of another story I read years ago. A young man took his bar exam and passed it on the 1st try. However his state refused to issue him a license to practice law. Why? Because he got his legal education by studying the law books in the prison library while serving a sentence. Hey, I'm no bleeding heart liberal but in this case I'd say the man deserved a break. While doing time he not only rehabilitated himself but also taught himself a profession. -R.S.


It's like Microsoft never heard of the Internet before. What did they expect when they let a bunch of socially maladjusted basement dwellers remotely program their Artificial Intelligence? Poetry and philosophy? There is a lesson for you; the Internet is filled with a$$holes.


If a bunch of Filipinos are volunteering to be flogged and crucified, it kind of takes of takes some of the impact out of Jesus' story, doesn't it?
[Only if they get stabbed to death at the end of it.]
