Crime stoppers news from Britain

Man convicted of scaring visitors to cemetery by playing ghost.

A guy who’s on parole for harassment goes out drinking, then visits a cemetery with a buddy and a football—what could go wrong? The people of Portsmouth, England, found out when Anthony Stallard, 24, booted the football at gravestones and acted like a ghost for cemetery visitors, according to a court hearing. “He was throwing himself backwards, waving his arms about and going ‘wooooooo,'” said a prosecuting attorney. “I’m assuming he was pretending to be a ghost.” Stallard pleaded guilty to “using threatening or abusive words or behavior likely to cause distress,” the Portsmouth News reports.

Stallard’s attorney said his client’s actions wouldn’t have been “inappropriate” outside of a cemetery, “but inside a cemetery while people are grieving for their loved ones it might be.”

    Dude –

    Just what EXACTLY are you doing in Vermont? Land of the maple syrup. The granite state. The state of Bunker Hill and the Shot Heard Round the World? THE HOME OF THE BOSTON TEA PARTY!!

    Are you wandering around the woods like a disgusting little nomadic hermit? Meditating and practicing tantric sex? Rubbing yourself like a retarded little rabid beaver? Watching the leaves change and testing the temperature of deer turds by rubbing them like boogers between your disgusting little fingers? ALL in anticipation of your annual wanton sex trip to BANGKOK?? While trying to figure out if you are a Yin or a Yang? You little Yin dingleberry.

    Anyhows, I hope you are enjoying a must enjoyed trip. Getting away from the grind of never selling any dirt. But if you are turning into a leafer, “writing” poetry and contemplating your disgusting little lint filled navel, I am worried about you. You frigging loser.

    Your Pal,

    Dude –
    The last comment was mine. Don’t know what happened. Is Vermont a legal ganga state? Can you bring me back a few bricks? I am good for it.
    Your Pal,
