Greetings fellow Bizarros:
I have always wanted to visit San Diego. There are so many amazing things to see there like the USS Midway Museum, the University of San Diego, the famous Balboa Park, the naked women discharging firearms.
This last attraction is a more recent addition.
A woman who fired a gun at her neighbors has been arrested by police after a nine hour standoff that included the SWAT team being called to her San Diego apartment and her standing topless in front of her shattered windows.
Police were first called to 35-year-old Brittany Lefler's apartment on Beadnell Way around midnight after numerous neighbors complained about the noise coming from her home.
Officers left her home once she quieted down, but around 5am, she was reportedly spotted walking around with a handgun as she allegedly threatened the neighbors who she believed called the police on her.
'She ran back into her apartment and our suspect fired at least one round through the door in the apartment,' the San Diego Police Department reported.
When police officers arrived back to the scene, Lefler did not come out of her home and refused to do so.
A SWAT team was then called in around 8am to take position and prepare to enter her home if needed.
Lefler stayed inside of her apartment for the next nine hours, as she did not follow directions from officers to exit unarmed so she could be arrested.
At one point, Lefler went to her window topless as the situation continued to unfold.
But around 2pm, she finally came out of the apartment with her hands up and was placed in handcuffs by SWAT team members.

Idiots Tackle Sub-freezing Temps to Surf Lake Michigan
A pair of especially dedicated surfers were filmed showing their devotion to the sport by braving sub-freezing temperatures to tackle the waves of Lake Michigan. The video, filmed earlier this month by Derek Utley, shows two surfers riding the waves at Bradford Beach in Milwaukee. The video shows one of the surfers manage to get upright and ride a massive wave. Utley said the temperature when he filmed the video was only 29 degrees and snow was falling heavily with 8 inches of accumulation already on the ground.

A conservative columnist who often wrote criticisms of gun control for the Portland Press Herald has been accidentally shot and killed by a teenage boy. Maine State Police and Sanford police are investigating the shooting death of Portland Press Herald columnist M.D. Harmon at his home in Sanford. Harmon worked for Portland, Maine newspapers for over forty years. In a 2013 column, he railed against proposed gun control legislation writing, "But the absolute worst part of the bill is that it would require all gun buyers to take a firearm safety course." The unidentified teenaged boy and his father had been visiting Harmon in his home when Harmon allowed the teenager to handle one of his guns. The gun went off and killed him.

I don't know why topless hairdressing isn't more of a mainstream thing (I mean, other than all the bigamy). If women can serve drinks and chicken wings topless, they should be able to dress hair topless. Just my opinion, but then, I'm a feminist.
