HAMILTON, Ohio —

An Ohio man was arrested Tuesday after he commented on his own wanted photo posted on a sheriff’s department’s Facebook page, the Journal-News reports.

Andrew Dale Marcum, 21, was wanted on numerous outstanding warrants, including an abduction and domestic violence charge stemming from a January incident involving the mother of his child, according to Hamilton police. The Butler County Sheriff’s Office, which serves warrants, took to its Facebook page Monday and highlighted Marcum as its “Featured Warrant of the Week.”

The post included multiple photos of Marcum, a description of the suspect, and a list of his recent alleged crimes, including felony burglary/safe-cracking, felony abduction, and misdemeanor charges of assault, domestic violence and criminal endangering, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Just four hours after the post, Marcum replied, “I ain’t tripping half of them don’t even know me.”

The Sheriff’s Office was quick to reply with a polite, “Andrew Marcum – If you could stop by the Sheriff’s Office, that’d be great.”

Well, this has got to be the dumbest move yet for him. Nothing like responding to your own wanted ad!

Happy Pills Handed Out By College To Kids?

5 Mar , 2015

A South Carolina college apologized Monday after a faculty member, calling them “happy pills,” handed out M&Ms in prescription drug bottles to little kids at a fun run over the weekend.

“While we know this professor meant the candy to serve as a treat, the method of distribution may have confused pre-school children whose parents have taught them not to take pills from pharmaceutical bottles,” Horry Georgetown Technical College, in East Conway near Myrtle Beach, said in a statement. “We regret further that professors and administrators are human and, although eager to share information about growing careers, sometimes make mistakes. This particular mistake will not occur again.”

The faculty member, who wasn’t identified, handed out the standard-issue prescription pill bottles to promote her medical technology program. The labels prescribed the “Happy Pills” to “A Great Kid,” instructing “patients” to “Take 1 m&m every 2 to 4 hours.”

I do not know about you, but as a parent, I would be upset. There is no way I want my kids to think that happy comes from a pill bottle. This is just outrageous and rather foolish for the staff to think this was a good idea. I hope someone gets fired! What are your thoughts and comments?

Legal Marijuana To Blame For Increased Shootings In New York

5 Mar , 2015

At a news conference Monday, New York Police Department commissioner Bill Bratton blamed a slight uptick in violence in the city (45 homicides at this point last year, versus 54 this year) on marijuana.

“The seemingly innocent drug that’s been legalized around the country. In this city, people are killing each other over marijuana more so than anything that we had to deal with [in the] 80s and 90s with heroin and cocaine . . . In some instances, it’s a causal factor. But it’s an influence in almost everything that we do here.”

Hyperbole at its finest. Even if this year’s uptick holds through December (and it’s worth noting that we’re only dealing with eight weeks of data, here), New York would end the year with 383 murders. The city saw 2,245 murders in 1990.

I’m not exactly sure by what Rube Goldbergian chain of events Bratton thinks legalization in Colorado and Washington is causing homicides in New York City, but it’s clear that he thinks there’s a connection. Another NYPD official said the problem appears to be “ripoffs” — not turf battles, but attempted robberies gone wrong.

Of course, if we want a more direct examination of what effect legal pot might have on homicide, we can just look at the cities where it’s legal. Here’s what we know:

Homicides dropped 24 percent in Denver last year, the first full year of legalization in Colorado. Robberies were down 3 percent. Burglary was down 9.5 percent. The only crimes that increased significantly were larceny (a property crime, not a violent crime) and arson, which seems unlikely to be related to marijuana. Overall, violent crime dropped 0.7 percent, and property crime dropped 2 percent.

Wow, I cant beleive that the marijuana all the way in Colorado is making people in New York shoot more. Would love to hear your thoughts!
