    Deputies Handcuff 7-Foot Alligator Near Florida School

    http://www.myfoxtampabay.com/dpp/ne...s-rein-in-gator-near-elementary-school-091310

    OLDSMAR - Three Pinellas deputies worked together to capture a large alligator Monday morning, keeping it away from a crosswalk where kids were walking to a nearby elementary school.

    Crossing Guard Denise Leone spotted the 7.5-foot gator lying against a wall between a subdivision and the sidewalk next to Forest Lakes Elementary school just before 7 a.m. She immediately called deputies, and they called a trapper when they arrived.

    The trapper wasn't able to get to the area right away, and the alligator started moving toward the intersection where kids were crossing to get to school, according to the sheriff's office.

    Working quickly, the three deputies were able to get a rope around the gator's neck and tail before the creature started to fight back.

    One photo from the sheriff's office shows one of the deputies sitting atop the wall the gator was near and lowering the rope down.

    Deputies say the gator started thrashing and rolling around, even smashing into the wall and causing pieces of stucco to fall off. Deputies Jeffrey Crandall, Michael Bard, and Richard Serra, Jr., were able to put handcuffs around its hind legs and tape over its mouth once it stopped rolling around.

    Fish and Wildlife Officials came to take custody of the alligator until the trapper arrived.

    Teens Get Porn Shock During Blood Bank Presentation

    http://www.aolnews.com/nation/artic...od-bank-presentation/19630164?test=latestnews

    (Sept. 12) -- More than 400 students from Norwin High School in western Pennsylvania got an unexpected eyeful Friday, when a big screen presentation on the importance of donating blood suddenly turned into an X-rated slideshow.

    The hardcore images -- described by students as gay pornography, according to the Pittsburgh Post Gazette -- were stored on a portable flash drive owned by a Central Blood Bank employee. That USB stick also contained the safe-for-all-ages PowerPoint presentation. But unfortunately, the Gazette noted, when Assistant Principal Tim Kotch plugged the drive into a computer, he unwittingly clicked on the wrong file, causing several explicit photos to appear on the school's giant TV screen.

    I don't have any links, and these are fairly old stories that a family friend once told me a couple of years ago (maybe about 5 now), so apologies for the lack of details/explanations on each......

    He said that both were local (Sacramento area) incidents he heard about on the news. And he seemed like a reputable guy when it came to such stories, so I did believe him when he told me about these, so I assume they're true.

    I hope you enjoy the laughs...

    One that he told me about involved a guy who tried to rob a bank and steal the ATM machine (may have been a couple of guys - I don't quite remember but if I had to take a guess right now, I'd say with slightly more certainty that it was a solo act). All went as planned, he (or they) got the ATM machine out of the bank and out to the vehicle. But there was one problem. The vehicle was a small car and, as a result, the ATM machine did not fit inside. BUSTED!!!!

    Another one he told me was at a fast food location (either McDonalds or Taco Bell if I remember correctly but, again, I don't quite remember). Two guys went in to rob the location and while they were doing their deeds, another worker realized that the two idiots had left their vehicle running so, being the smart guy that he was, he ran out, jumped in, and drove their vehicle a couple of blocks down, and left it on the side of a dirt road (or something like that). Two dudes run out with the cash, realize their vehicle's missing, dropped everything, and started to run. They, unfortunately, ran a lot slower than the cops could drive. BUSTED!!!!
