Giving literal meaning to the term “legal briefs,” two teenage former detainees at a Knoxville, Tennessee, juvenile detention center have filed complaints that the facility dispenses previously worn, stained underwear to its girls. According to The Smoking Gun, one of the girls claims that the “used panty policy is nasty, debasing, and humiliating.”
It’s true that here in Los Angeles, unsuspecting drivers get shot at on the freeways. It’s a way of life. In London, though, where “happy slapping” is rampant, there has been an alarming increase in attacks on parking wardens. This Is London says that three guards a day are attacked with baseball bats, knives, and saliva. The gobbing is so bad that “spit kits” are being dispensed to 250 parking attendants in the city of Westminster. Swabs of the spittle can then be analyzed and cross-checked against millions of DNA samples in the police’s national database. Spit kits are proving very effective when carried by London Transport workers.
