Cops: Man Stole Judge's Gavel From Courtroom | The Smoking Gun

Cops: Man Stole Judge's Gavel From Courtroom | The Smoking Gun | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
What would you:

- steal a gavel?
- steal one from a judge in a courtroom?

Weirdo.

"Earlier this week, Magistrate Daniel Cook, who handles small claims cases in Lorain, Ohio, was on the bench when he reached for his gavel and discovered it was missing. After checking “every possible place it could be,” police reported, Cook concluded that someone had actually stolen his gavel.

Court personnel then reviewed surveillance video from days earlier and spotted an unknown male stealing the wooden gavel. The alleged thief, staffers realized, was accompanied by a second man who “was in court on that day trying to get his license back,” according to a Lorain Police Department report."

FARK.com: (6075737) Connecticut teacher asks fat student if he ate his homework, school board's dog is not amused | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
Friendly advice: if you have Asberger's syndrome, you might want to steer clear of a career in teaching (esp. young children) and politics.

"A Connecticut math teacher is fighting to keep his job after asking an overweight student if he ate his homework.

Brookfield High School teacher Robert Wollkind says he has Asperger's syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism in which social interactions can be awkward.

Wollkind was placed on administrative leave in November after the comment to the student, who previously had been teased by others about his weight."

Gender-Confused British Hen Acts Like Rooster, Baffling Its Owners

Gender-Confused British Hen Acts Like Rooster, Baffling Its Owners | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
"A chicken in Cambridgeshire, England, shocked its owners when it seemed on the verge of a natural sex change.

Owner Jeanette Howard and her husband began noticing the changes after the hen, Gertie, began to moult, the BBC reports.

"She grew back lots more feathers -- she was quite straggly before -- and I also realized that she had filled out quite a lot. Gertie looked very healthy," Howard told the BBC.

Besides the fuller feathers, Gertie began to develop wattles, and her comb became larger and more distinctive, like that of a rooster.

Soon, Gertie was strutting around the coop and crowing.

"She wasn't very good at first, but she's progressed nicely and now she really goes for it," Howard said."

Montana Rep. Alan Hale Says DUI Laws Are 'Destroying a Way of Life' | In Today's News of the Weird | Scoop.it
"A Montana politician who runs a bar in his district says drunken driving regulations hurt small businesses -- namely bars and taverns.

Hale, who, according to his campaign website, runs a bar in Basin, says pubs are important gathering places in his rural Montana district -- important gathering places that are only accessible by car.

"These taverns and bars in these smaller communities connect people together," the first-term lawmaker said in a statement publicized by the Montana news blog The Lowdown.

"They are the center of the communities. I'll guarantee you there's only two ways to get there: Either you hitchhike, or you drive, and I promise you they're not going to hitchhike.""
