Woman who urinated on potatoes at West Mifflin Walmart seemed drunk, police say
Tom Davidson | Wednesday, July 31, 2019 3:29 p.m.
Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

Police said a woman caught on camera urinating on potatoes at a West Mifflin Walmart appeared to be drunk when she walked into the store, according to a criminal complaint filed against her.

About $200 worth of potatoes were tainted by the urine, police said in a criminal complaint.

The woman, Grace Brown of Whitehall, and her attorney met with police Tuesday, and she told authorities she was the woman caught in surveillance video from the store, police said.

Brown made no further statement to police. Her attorney, Casey David White, didn’t return messages seeking comment Wednesday.

At about 10 p.m. July 24, surveillance camera footage captured a woman entering the grocery side doors of the Walmart. She appeared unsteady on her feet and intoxicated, police wrote in the criminal complaint. She walked to the produce section, pulled her pants down and squatted on a produce rack where potatoes and other vegetables were displayed for sale, according to the complaint.

She stood up, pulled up her pants and walked out of the store, leaving a puddle of liquid that was found by an employee who reported it to security, police said. The woman then re-entered the store and sat on a bench for a few minutes before leaving with an unidentified male, police said.

While at the station, police played clips of the footage to Brown. Police said she identified herself as the woman in the video.

Brown is facing charges of open lewdness, criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.

Walmart disposed of the tainted potatoes and sanitized the area.

This is part of a new internet fad. Teenagers are opening products and spitting in them while being filmed. In other cases they open a product and lick it, then reseal it. Then they post the video of them committing the act on youtube or facebook or whatever.

It makes no sense at all. Of course many of them have been arrested, since they post a video of their own guilt on the internet as this woman did.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

Michigan Man Uses Blowtorch to Kill Weeds, Sets Trailer Park on Fire

Quote
A man using a blowtorch to clear weeds in a mobile home community accidentally started a fire that forced dozens of residents to temporarily evacuate.

The blaze began Wednesday around 5:15pm in Green Oak Township, Michigan, about 50 miles from Detroit. According to Fire Chief Kevin Gentry, the fire began in a shed, but when firefighters arrived just a minute later, it had already spread to one trailer, and then another. In all three units were damaged.

At least one resident lost their home and their pet, reports Fox 2 in Detroit.

Well, better than the usual case of a guy lighting a match to look into his gas tank to see if there's any gas in there. I suppose.

Louisiana woman says meth found hidden inside body part is not hers: police

Nicole Darrah By Nicole Darrah | Fox News




A Louisiana woman allegedly caught with meth hidden inside her vagina said she didn't know where the drugs came from, police said.

Ashley Beth Rolland, 23, was accused on July 31 of stealing $5,000 from the apartment of a man she'd been staying with for about a week, according to documents published by the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office.

Fake Cop Arrested After Pulling over Real Detectives, Police Say

Quote
Valiery Portlock, 25, is charged with first-degree criminal impersonation of an officer, second-degree reckless endangerment, unlawful fleeing from a police officer, and other traffic violations, in Nassau County, New York, according to Newsday.

The defendant, a resident of the hamlet of Hicksville, was driving a Nissan Sentra at about 11 a.m., cops said. He attempted to pull over an unmarked van by using an air horn and emergency lights, officers said. Surprise, surprise, there was electronic squad detectives inside. That van stopped, and the real police approach him with their shields, cops said.

Portlock is accused of making a less-than-graceful escape. He swerved onto oncoming traffic, and entered the Long Island Expressway at 85 mph, officers said. Highway patrol officers arrested him, cops said.

Woman breaks into bar, drinks until employees show up in the morning: cops
By Kenneth Garger
August 20, 2019
New York Post

It’s five o’clock somewhere.

A Kentucky woman was arrested for allegedly breaking into a closed bar and drinking there until employees showed up to open the watering hole in the morning, according to a report.

Donna Martin is accused to busting into the Slainte Public House in Georgetown, Ky., early Monday, Lex 18 reported.

Employees arriving shortly before 8 a.m. found Martin posted up at the bar, the outlet said.  The workers called police, who charged Martin with burglary and public intoxication.

What, me worry?

Energy Star's thermostat recommendations surprise the internet
https://abcnews.go.com/US/energy-stars-thermostat-recommendations-surprise-internet/story?id=65072381

A federal program is taking some serious heat for recommending that homes be kept at 78 degrees during the day.

Energy Star, a program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy, said people should set their thermostat to 78 degrees when they are home and "need cooling" in an effort to save energy during the spring and summer.

And when you're sleeping or away, the suggested temperatures go up. When sleeping, it's recommended that the thermostat is kept at 82 degrees, and when away, people should set the thermostat to 85 degrees, Energy Star said....

What's wrong with that?  Mine's set to 78 most of the year, though I might go as low as 76 for a few hours if I'm going to be working outside.

Mine runs about 82 during the day, but my room goes down to 74 at night.  I can't sleep at 85.  What are they talking about?

Turning the thermostat down is harder on the A/C unit that has to work harder to bring the temperature down.  I have not found it economical to do so at all, and I lived in Phoenix.

Well, I had some young puppy installing my new air conditioner suggest I set my thermostat to 73 to 75 degrees "to get the humidity out of the air."  I told him at my age I don't move around as much as I did when I was at his age, so at 73-75 degrees, I'd be freezing my tail off. 

My former HVAC guy, now retired, told me to keep the thermostat in summer at 78-80 and in winter from 70-73.  Following his advice has worked for me.

They are saying what's comfortable for them should be comfortable enough for you.  Now comply, you serf.  I'd lay a good bet the bureaucrats responsible for the edict don't run their houses at 82F at night.
