Mid-Week Mayhem! COPS!

rcmp3 <– Steven Simonar of Saskatoon, who has no arms, was pulled over by an RCMP officer for not wearing his seatbelt.

Jeff Davis, Postmedia News

A Saskatoon man is demanding an apology and refusing to pay a $175 ticket for not wearing a seatbelt………………………., because he has no arms and can’t fasten one unassisted.
Steven Simonar, who drives using a specialized wheel and stirrup, was pulled over in a routine police spot check last Friday. The RCMP officer noticed he was not wearing his seatbelt, so Mr. Simonar explained he can’t fasten it when driving alone.
When the Mountie requested his licence and registration, Mr. Simonar stepped out of the car and asked the officer to retrieve the documents from his pocket.
police13He said the officer was prepared to let him go, but a Saskatoon Police Service sergeant overseeing the operation instructed him to issue a ticket.
“He became very ignorant, and said, ‘Well if he can’t put his seatbelt on maybe he shouldn’t be driving.’ That’s what really made me mad.”

A former Kelowna RCMP officer who admitted to kicking a man in the face two years ago will be sentenced Thursday.
Geoff MantlerAt a court hearing Tuesday, Geoff Mantler, who has since resigned from the force, read a letter of apology, saying he was deeply sorry for and regretted his actions.
Mantler pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily harm last year after he was caught on video kicking Buddy Tavares in the face while Tavares was on his hands and knees on a street.
During a victim-impact statement, Tavares told the court he relives the incident every time he has a headache or panic attack.
The Crown has called for a suspended sentence, a firearms ban and 18 months probation, while Mantler’s lawyer has asked for a conditional discharge.
Outside court, Tavares said he was pleased Mantler had quit the RCMP.
“My biggest fear was he was going to get his job back. I honestly believe it was just a matter of time ’till he killed somebody.”
Tavares was asked how he felt about the fact that it’s unlikely Mantler will serve time behind bars.
“I’m just a little bewildered by everything right now. I didn’t think he’d do time — ever,” he said.

With all the controversy going on about gun control in the States, can somebody please tell me what’s wrong with this picture?
BURKESVILLE, Ky. — Authorities in southern Kentucky say a 2-year-old girl has been accidentally shot and killed by her 5-year-old brother, who was playing with a .22-caliber rifle he received as a gift.
Kentucky State Police said the toddler was shot just after 1 p.m. CDT Tuesday in Cumberland County and was taken to a nearby hospital, where she was later pronounced dead.
Cumberland County Coroner Gary White told the Lexington Herald-Leader that the children’s mother was at home at the time.
White told the newspaper that the boy received the rifle made for youths last year and is used to shooting it. He said the gun was kept in a corner and the family didn’t realize a shell was left inside it.

White said the shooting will be ruled accidental!

A California woman faces attempted murder charges after police say she tried to sneak orange juice bottles spiked with a lethal amount of rubbing alcohol inside a Starbucks.
San Jose Police arrested Ramineh Behbehanian, 50, late Monday. A customer reported seeing the woman take two bottles of orange juice from her bag and place them in an open-air refrigerated display case at a Starbucks in San Jose around 3:45 p.m., Sgt. Jason Dwyer said Tuesday.
When the customer told a store manager what he saw, Behbehanian fled. A store employee followed Behbehanian to the parking lot and jotted down her license plate number as she drove off. Other employees called 911 after noticing the bottles had a toxic smell, Dwyer said.

Police are trying to figure out exactly how to handle one man’s truly wasteful collection after 300 gallons of bottled urine were discovered inside a residential home.
According to the News-Times, Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP) spokesman Dennis Schain said authorities found “200 to 300 one-gallon plastic jugs filled with human urine” during a search of the man’s home in Watertown, Connecticut.
Police have declined to publicly release the man’s name, as he has not yet been formally charged with a crime.
1144045-Cartoon-Of-A-Chorus-Line-Of-Naked-Men-Dancing-The-Can-Can-Royalty-Free-Vector-Clipart“An environmental contractor … was brought into help deal with this under our supervision,” Schain told the paper, saying DEEP authorities were called in to assess what he described as a home “in a state of disrepair.”
Despite the disturbing and unusual nature of the urine collection, Schain said it’s unlikely authorities will actually charge the man with a crime. He’s not the first person to store his own urine, with these cases often tied to mental illness. For example, Howard Hughes famously stored his own urine after retreating to Las Vegas. The actor James Franco even admitted to bottling his own urine, though that was part of a youthful prank.
In the meantime, the urine is schedule to be taken to a waste treatment plant for proper disposal.

And one more on cops!

In 1990, Vicki Rother of Reidville, South Carolina had her wallet stolen………………………..! Last week, she got it back. It was in mint condition.
On Wednesday, an officer in the nearby Spartanburg Police Department called her:
“He said he had some property of mine that had been recovered, and I could not imagine what had been lost,” Chastain told NBC News. “He said, ‘I have a blast from your past. I’m holding your navy blue—’ and I said, ‘My wallet.’ And he said, ‘Yes, ma’am, your wallet.’”
In the 2 years since, Chastain says she’s gone through “a whole lifetime of changes.”
A single mother working two jobs at the time of the theft, Chastain is now remarried. She owns her own business. Her young son is now grown up.
The returned wallet, found in the ceiling of a second-storey women’s washroom in a building a few miles from the now-closed hospital when Chastain once worked as a medical transcriptionist, now serves as a time capsule of sorts — complete with her son’s birth certificate, her old driver’s license, their social security cards, and photos she had assumed were lost forever.
“It’s in perfect condition. The pictures are perfect,” she told NBC News of the photos of her then-5-year-old son. “There was one in there of him and I when he was three months old. I don’t have any other copies of that one. I had forgotten I had those. Or forgotten that I didn’t have them, as the case would be.”
Chastain told NBC News that she always suspected that a cash-strapped co-worker at Doctors’ Memorial took her wallet. The co-worker had been complaining about finances the day Chastain’s wallet disappeared.
She still doesn’t know how her wallet ended up in the ceiling tiles of a nearby building, but she’s thankful the man who found it turned it in.
“I really appreciate the man who found it,” she said. “Somebody not so good took it, somebody really good gave it back.”
The man who found Chastain’s wallet found another wallet in the same building’s ceiling tiles about two years ago. That wallet had been reported stolen in 1996.
