Earlier I posted about the escaped criminal who taunted police on Facebook and eventually got caught. Now an incarcerated prisoner has broadcasted creepy threats via Facebook. It appears his Facebook account has been terminated since then but it does seem like the English criminal has a social networking edge on his/her American cousins.

I posted briefly about this case earlier this year.
“Washington D.C. judge Roy Pearson sued the owners of Custom Cleaners for losing his trousers. There is a reported history of problems with Custom Cleaner. Pearson stated in court papers that he took a pair of trousers to this dry cleaning shop back in 2002. The pants were lost. Owners Soo and Jin Chung gave Pearson $150 to replace his lost pants.
Pearson said that he returned to Custom Cleaners in 2005 and his trousers were missing again. He was about to being a new job as an administrative judge. Pearson claims that these gray trousers were prized pants that he wanted to wear on his first day on the bench.
Court papers describe the gray trousers with also blue and red stripes. Pearson said that he brought one pair in to the dry cleaning shop for alternations. The trousers went missing after that.
The Chungs have spent thousands of dollars defending themsevels against Pearson’s lawsuit. Jin Chung said that they have been paying lawyer fees for two year and have developed bad credit as well as stress because of Pearson’s lawsuit. Mrs. Soo Chung broke down in tears during an interview with ABC news. In the interview, she stated that the never thought that it would drag out this long. “I don’t want to live here anymore. It’s been so difficult. I just want to go home, go back to Korea” she said.”
Okay, cities have lit landmark bridges and other iconic edifices for the public’s enjoyment before but now Birmingham Alabama has taken this two steps further. First, by lighting up an eyesore: Spaghetti Junction, a giant 1970s concrete interchange and second, they aren’t doing this for the enjoyment of thousands of people living on earth but for astronauts and other beings out in space who desire a visual treat while embarked upon their journey.
Lord help them if they are using stimulus money for this.
