How not to hide from the police…

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

Firing Squad set to go in Utah

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

In Utah, things are done the old-fashioned way. Mr. Ronnie Lee Gardner is set to be executed by the State for a pair of murders in the 1980’s. Sentenced before 2004, when the law changed, Mr. Gardner is allowed to choose his manner of execution, between lethal injection or firing squad. His choice? “I would like the firing squad, please,” Gardner said. Naturally, not everyone is happy with the decision. Including the victim’s friends and family.

Oregon has the Best Bandits

We’ve survived the River Rat Bandits. And who can forget the hilarity that was the Waddling Bandit? Which not-so-funnily led to a man being wrongly accused and held in jail (that check better be in the mail!).  But this fall, Oregon is facing dual bandit terrors.

First, there is Clackamas County’s Grandpa Bandit. Now, as far as crime monikers go, the Grandpa Bandit is a great one. Seriously, what jury wants to convict the Grandpa Bandit? No one wants to put ol’ Gramps in the slammer. In Portland, we have the Fantasia Bandit. Keep Portland weird, right? From fantasy video stores to banks, Fantasia makes all of your armed-robbery dreams come true.
