LES MISERABLES:

Man in Wheelchair Robbed Bank…

…Man Accused of Stealing Pizza Pans

Wife, husband battle over hot dogs…

…mother and son arrested for stealing food

so i sent this in:

Man assaults sister over butter dispute

A 67-year-old man apparently punched his sister in the shoulder Thursday after he accused her of stealing butter from their mother, the Seattle police reported.

although this is probably the more appropriate follow-up:

At least four people were killed and 20 wounded when demonstrations against rising food prices turned into riots in southern Haiti, officials say.

Reports say scores of people went on the rampage in the town of Les Cayes, blocking roads, looting shops and shooting at UN peacekeepers.

The UN said its personnel had opened fire at some of the armed protesters.

For two days running, parts of Haiti have been erupting into violence triggered by the soaring cost of food.

The prices of rice, beans and fruit have gone up by 50% in the last year.
