Wei Jinpeng is a fisher of dead people. He scans the river about 18 miles from Lanzhou, China, for cadavers, drags them to shore with a small boat and then charges grieving families to recover their relatives' corpses. It is a thriving business. From his perch on an overhang above the Yellow River, Wei Jinpeng pointed to a fisherman's cove below and began counting his latest catch. He stopped after six and guessed that perhaps a dozen human corpses were bobbing in the murky waters. http://www.makeahistory.com/index.php/bizzareweird/24366-chinas-dark-side-body-fishing-jobWei Jinpeng is a fisher of dead people.

Al menos ocho funcionarios de la ciudad de Bell fueron arrestados hoy por la Procuraduría de Distrito del condado de Los Ángeles debido a sus salarios de escándalo y abusos en sus funciones.
El alcalde de Bell, Oscar Hernández, y el administrador, Robert Rizzo, este último quien percibió en 2010 un sueldo de unos 800 mil dólares y cerca de millón y medio de dólares en prestaciones, figuran entre los detenidos.
Tras un reportaje publicado en fecha reciente por el periódico Los Angeles Times, salieron a relucir los salarios 'estratosféricos' de los funcionarios, así como los abusos en su gestión en esta pequeña ciudad del sureste de Los Ángeles.
El procurador, Steve Colley, convocó para la tarde de este martes a una rueda de prensa en la que dará a conocer los pormenores de los arrestos y en la que presentarán los cargos por actos de corrupción y abuso cometidos por los funcionarios en su desempeño.

This is the first statement from the women, Mary Bale, who was caught on CCTV putting a cat in a bin for no apparent reason. From the statement released, it sounds like she might have been unaware of her actions and there is still an investigation being carried out by police and the RSPCA. So it could mean her statement will be checked if it is true.
[update] sounds like the Sun got a different statement "Speaking to The Sun, the woman said people were "overreacting". She said: "I really don't see what everyone is getting so excited about - it's just a cat." "I don't know what came over me, but I suddenly thought it would be funny to put it in the wheelie bin which was right beside me. I did it as a joke because I thought it would be funny. I never thought it would be trapped. I expected it to wriggle free."http://uk.news.yahoo.com/21/20100825/tuk-cat-joke-was-meant-to-be-funny-6323e80.html (Channel 4 news stated the Sun comment was made first then the apology statement)
"I want to take this opportunity to apologise profusely for the upset and distress that my actions have caused. I cannot explain why I did this, it is completely out of character and I certainly did not intend to cause any distress to Lola or her owners," she said."-Channel 4
Some internet forums and comment questioned if the woman has dementia, which would explain out of character actions.
Boing Boing has further details into the internet response to the incident.

Owing money is not a criminal offense in the USA. But big business has found a way to end-run this process.
June 19, 2010 |
Reports of mild-mannered Americans getting arrested for being in debt are starting to pop up in states across the country. All over the Net, we've been reading about these poor saps snatched off the street — right in front of their horrified children — by glowering cops and locked up just for missing a few credit card payments.
Right, but they're not. They can't. In this country, owing money is not a criminal offense. It is in Dubai, where nearly half of the prison population is behind bars for defaulting on bank loans. But in the United States, incarceration for debt was abolished in 1833, and now debt itself is a mere civil matter. Sure, collection agencies want you to think the FBI cares whether or not you pay that Nordstrom bill. But they risk losing their licenses for so much as implying this, thanks to the U.S. Fair Trade Commission's Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, in effect since 1966.
Read between the lines and you'll see that these debtors weren't arrested for being debtors but — in most cases — for missing court dates for negotiating their debts.
Incur debt and your creditor can call you, write you, hire a collection agency and finally sue you. At that point a subpoena, delivered via process server or registered mail, announces that you're now a defendant, your creditor a plaintiff. This subpoena lists a date and time at which you are ordered to appear before a judge in civil court "to disclose your assets and liabilities and determine how this defendant is going to pay this plaintiff," explains Will Lund, superintendent of Maine's Bureau of Consumer Credit Protection, which enforces the FDCA and licenses collection agencies.
"Attendance by the defendant is mandatory. To ensure that it's mandatory, a subpoena is involved. To not show up is not dissing the plaintiff. It's dissing the court," Lund says. "It's contempt of court, and that can lead to arrest."
Most debtors don't realize that ignoring the summons means crossing that line, exiting the stressful but safe realm of owing money and entering the stark realm of mugshots and body searches and jail-issued sandwiches eaten among robbers and arsonists. This transit happens when a judge signs a capias, a civil warrant for arrest on the basis of failure to appear in court.
"If you've got a capias against you for failure to appear, you could be arrested if you're stopped by the police," affirms Katherine Martell of Fairfax, Virginia-based K&M Law Group, which specializes in debt restructuring and debt recovery. "That's not the same as snatching people off the street for not paying debts."
The frequency of such arrests, and law-enforcement officers' eagerness to make them, vary from county to county and state to state, but given the severity of other crimes that cops have to deal with, this one is always low priority.
"It's not like a roundup where the police say, 'Hey, we're gonna go out and pick up all the debtors today," says attorney Marshall Meyers of Phoeniz, Arizona-based Weisberg & Meyers. "But if you get pulled over for a traffic ticket, say, and you've got a warrant for failure to appear in court, they can bring you in."Owing money is not a criminal offense in the USA. But big business has found a way to... more
