102% turnover rate? Sheesh!

Oklahoma is #1 in something. Oklahoma incarcerates women at the highest rate in the nation, 129 per 100,000 population vs 107 per 100,000 in the second highest state, Mississippi. I would think it would be chock full of women like Emaline Smith, but apparently 28.1% of them are in there for simple possession of illicit drugs. Oklahoma is probably winning in that category too.

~~~~~~~

I know all too well what this woman went through before she started serving a 30 day sentence because her 14 year old daughter was truant, all too well. My guess, the teen is laughing all the way to the foster home. We both wish our daughters were more like Shaila.

~~~~~~

I wonder what they were up to?

Keifer, OK - Graduating Senior suspended for doing a cartwheel at the graduation ceremony.

Oklahoma City, OK - Man shot and robbed of six gold teeth.

Tulsa, OK - John Pickle company found guilty of fraud, false imprisonment and civil rights violations, awarding more than $1.2 million to the foreign workers (mostly from India) who accused the Tulsa factory of virtual slavery.

Woman's Toes Licked By Man Hiding Under Car

Police in Tulsa, Okla., are searching for a man who hid under a woman's car at a Wal-Mart parking lot and then licked her toes as she loaded groceries into the vehicle, according to a report.

The woman said she was at the Tulsa Wal-Mart located near 81st Street and Lewis when she felt her toes being licked.

She assumed it was a dog but when she looked down, she saw it was a man lying under her vehicle.

"I felt something lick my foot," the woman said. "I looked at him and I said, 'What in the hell are you doing?' And that's exactly what I said, 'What are you doing?'"

The culprit got up and ran away before police arrived at the scene.

The woman said the man who licked her toes is Hispanic or Indian, about 5-foot-9 and weighs 150 pounds. He was wearing a black t-shirt and blue jeans.

Skiatook, OK couple kidnapped a teen, imitating (not intimidating as the article says) their favorite TV show, Dog the Bounty Hunter. They claimed they were making a citizens arrest because they suspected the teen of possession of stolen property. Police viewed that with more than a bit of skepticism because the teen wasn't a suspect in any burglary or have any warrants out for him. The attractive couple probably would be right at home on stage at the Jerry Springer Show.

Washington County, OK
kotv newsA Washington County man is charged with assault, after shooting at a woman and pepper spraying her children.

The woman says she was shot with a BB gun by her neighbor after pulling into her rural Bartlesville home.

Jennifer Stearman says Jimmie Jordan chased them and sprayed them with pepper spray. Court records show Jordan is 6-foot 7.

He told authorities he was defending himself from Stearman, who is 5-foot-3.

Oklahoma City, OK - Aide to Senator Jim Inhofe apparently beaten, found by paramedics at the Bricktown ballpark loading dock at 4AM Sunday. Perhaps the muggers thought he was Inhofe. More likely, they were beating up a homosexual for kicks. That is not far from where the preacher from Tulsa was arrested for propositioning a police officer.

A new law regarding violent or sexual video games was signed into law despite courts finding similar laws in other states unconstitutional. Get ready for the unfunded lawsuit, Gov. Brad Henry.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Police said they busted Christie Swing for giving an impromptu show at an Oklahoma City bar.

According to authorities, Swing was dancing nude on a table while her two kids waited in a car in a nearby parking lot.

Police Officer Taylor Shaw reported that he saw the children outside Charlie's Last Stand at almost 1 a.m. The children told the officer their parents were inside the bar.

Shaw said when he went into the bar on May 28, he saw Swing dancing nude on a table and arrested her and bar manager David Jones.

No, I think she was slumming. However, if Jerry Springer came here it would be a different matter.

Severe heat affects outdoor workers*. Ya think?

*actual headline

~~~~~~~~

Another actual headline: Sulphur women threatened.

Threatened with what, oxidization? Why? Was it the stench?

[note: The article is of a serious nature but my commentary is not, but it was my first impression upon reading headline.]

~~~~~~~~

Edmond, OK - Sleeping woman revs car until engine catches fire. A witness found a woman asleep in the car with her foot on the accelerator and the motor revving at a high rate of speed. The man stopped to awaken the woman, but after he left, she fell asleep again with her foot on the accelerator. Man, when you come down off a meth high, you sure come down.

~~~~~~~~

Owasso, OK - Garth Brook's ex-wife's kidnapper has been courted by tabloids for his story. They must not think it's worth nearly as much as Brad and Angelina's baby pictures since they're only offering one or two thousand dollars. He's not really in a bargaining position at the moment, sitting in jail on a million dollar bond like he is.

125,000 barrels of unleaded gasoline on fire right now, just south of Tulsa. The gasoline prices go uppity-up-up, not downedy-down-down.

In other news, Oklahoma government stinks, this time because the air conditioning in the state capitol building went out.

Edmond, OK - Southern Baptist church mulls over baptism not being required for membership, saying "the Bible does not mandate that baptism be a requirement of membership and that it has become more of an initiation rite than anything else."

Change the name of your church then.

Oklahoma City - An alligator is on the loose. Wildlife officials said they are not convinced that an alligator is hiding out in the reservoir, but they have crews monitoring the area to look for tracks. Some of the prints resemble an alligator's, officials said, but they added that they could just as easily be beaver prints.

In the right light, a beaver swimming does bear a resemblance to an alligator:

Stillwater, OK - OSU vets have been treating a rare breed of donkey, a Poitou donkey. The Poitou are a large breed of donkey that were used to breed draft mules in France. At one time 30,000 mules per year came out of that region, now the donkeys number in the few hundreds. The fungal disease they've been treating the donkey for could've left it sterile.

Owasso, OK - Like a scene from an old movie, an abandoned newborn baby in a basket and wrapped in a blanket was found on doorstep about 8 a-m Wednesday by an Owasso woman. The 5 pound 1 ounce infant is now in the custody of DHS. A DHS representative said they will have no trouble placing the child with an adoptive family.
