Criminals can be as dumb as dead weasels

Time for another round of stupid criminals…

• A mother took her 4-year-old daughter to a friend's home for a pool party. The adults there thought it would be fun to throw the child off the roof of the two-story home into the pool. They missed. The girl was taken to the hospital with severe internal injuries. The mother was taken to jail with a charge of child abuse.

• A Connecticut woman was caught giving alcohol to her children. Police saw the family at a playground, but instead of playing like the other kids, the woman's 4-year-old son was drinking a 40-ounce. Mom was drunk, too. 

• A woman in Oak Park, Mich. was arrested for growing vegetables. She didn't have a permit, so the city planner sent her a warning, then a ticket , then had her arrested on a misdemeanor charge. She's still gardening, refusing to stop gardening, and will soon stand trial. Guess veggies can be bad for you, after all.

• A group of young men robbed a home, taking electronics and jewelry. They also took an expensive-looking urn, containing the ashes of the owner's father and his two dead dogs. The young men thought the urn contained cocaine, and proceeded to snort it. They were later arrested and charged.

• A man barged into his victim's home carrying a lethal weapon of a different kind – a dead weasel. He angrily informed the homeowner who had confronted him that, "It's not a weasel, it's a marten." He was arrested and charged with breaking and entering. No charges on the death of the weasel.
