Bizarre but true stories about real people collected by syndicated columnist Chuck Shepherd.
Raymond Garfield Gordon, 23, who was scheduled to be a contestant on the “Canadian Idol” TV show, was arrested in August after an alleged public-masturbation spree, during which at least once he, nude, followed a woman and implored her, “Look at me. Please look at me.”
The Colorado prisons’ inspector general’s office said that because of the state’s new no-smoking law, inmate profits of 450 times costs can be made on contraband tobacco, vs. typical profits of eight times costs on contraband cocaine.
Police in Barcelona, Spain, arrested a man in August whom they thought was the serial mugger (19 victims) whose modus operandi included, most of the time, telling the victims that he knew what he was doing was bad and that they should spit on him (and, according to an officer, several did).
