This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays, a suspected criminal cannot escape the long paw of the law, police investigate after a baby is put up for sale on Craigslist and a mystery shitter terrorizes Toronto.
Follow the jump to read some of the weirdest and wackiest cases in the history of this week.
Taking a bite out of crime
There’s a 1989 movie starring Jim Belushi called K-9 about a cop whose partner is, you guessed it, a dog. Well, they say art – I use the term very loosely – imitates life, as a video of a police dog helping its human partner take down a suspect shows.
A resident called police about a man acting erratically on his property in possession of a folding knife.
Camera phone footage shows a police officer arrive and approach the man, who then hits him in the face. The officer calmly steps back and opens the back door of the police car. Out jumps K-9 Lee, no relation, who grabs hold of the man’s arm in its mouth helping to bring him to the ground.
You can watch the video here. It definitely has the makings of a buddy cop movie.
For sale: baby
Ah, Craigslist. It’s almost as old as the internet itself. On the one hand, it’s a popular classifieds website for people to sell their old cars, find work and rent apartments. On the other hand, it’s a toxic quagmire of the worst people in the world. A recent post, which falls into the latter category, purported to want to sell a baby for $500. The ad read: “Baby is 2weeks old. It sleeps, don’t make noise at night.”
“Formula and clothes will give it to you. Can give you the baby 4-year-old sister for free,” it continued.
Hopefully, it was all just a sick joke but not long after, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement launched an investigation into the ad.
No dumping allowed
The most disgusting case of the week easily goes to Toronto’s turd terrorist. I can’t believe I’m saying this but someone is throwing buckets of “liquefied fecal matter” onto unsuspecting Torontonians. That’s right, there’s an actual serial pooper on the loose dumping buckets of actual human shit on actual human people.
The poop perp has already struck three times including pouring the bucket’s contents over some poor man’s head at a university library.
I hope the Toronto police have their best guys on it because that would be an actual nightmare.
