A judge in Manitoba acquitted a guy of rape after the victim testified that she was an acquaintance, did not escape from him when she had the chance, and failed to bite him during oral sex because "I'm not like that, I'm not a person who likes to be rude."

<ZorbaTHut> On Friday, a jury in Miami awarded a woman $20.9M in an auto crash. Although the crasher denied he was talking on a cellphone at the time of impact, surprise phone records showed that he was. The jury may also have upped the damages after listening to the crasher's lawyer argue that the victim, at age 79, shouldn't get very much money because, after all, she's old and (partly due to the accident) in poor health and thus not expected to live all that long.

<_underdog> you know what this means?
<_underdog> you can crash into anyone talking on a cell and get paid for it

Authorities in Brownsville, Tex., still don't have independent evidence that Juan Martin Medrano killed anyone, though he has confessed to 32 murders; Medrano said on Friday from jail that, man, he never killed those people, that it was the potential book contract talking.

At first I thought that guy had his priorities screwed up.

Then I remembered how often rich people go to jail.

That's the scary part - that he might have the right idea!
