NEWScoop: Stacking, Robbing, Refusing, Pumping, and Killing
Symmetrical Liquor Bottle Stacking, Like the Philadelphia Mass Turbulence of 1947
You’re right, no human being would stack liquor bottles like this. Strange behavior is baffling Friendswood police. The burglaries, for the most part, were standard—a television, an iPad, and a couple laptops. The odd bit? This all happened in the time it took for a maintenance worker to grab his tools from his truck. Left in the garage, were stacked bottles and DVDs. Visit KHOU for more.
I’ve Got Your Pie, if by Pie You Mean this Round Badge of the Law
Last week a pizza delivery driver was robbed and shot in southeast Houston. The criminals are still on the loose. This week an unrelated delivery robbery took place in north Houston.

We Don’t Serve Their Kind Here
Crockett Keller is man who knows what he does not like. He isn’t looking to offend anyone. But, in being completely honest, you’re just bound to do so. If you’re liberal, Arab, Muslim, or non-Christian (technically Muslims fit here, as well), you’re not getting lessons in fire arms. He cites 9/11 and Fort Hood as reasons for his cautiousness. He might also think about banning Jaycees, Mormons and blood pattern analysts. Visit MyFoxHouston for more.
Food Deserts and the Lack of Moneyfall
It’s difficult for some neighborhoods to find stores that sell the elements of a balanced diet. As anyone that’s ever lived off crispitos and pork rinds will tell you, it’ll test your body’s tolerance for the slow spun fried food fare, not to mention the upper thresholds of cholesterol and blood pressure. The city’s solution? Pump the taxpayers’ money into the desert, in the hope that sustainable nourishment might one day prevail. Visit ABC13 for more.
