This is why I keep reading news from home

Because the Pacific Northwest is full of seriously odd people, and headlines like this one are a wonderful counterpoint to all of the depressing crap coming out of the national news:

Burglars Leave Behind Sex Tape In Elma Break-In

Yes, of course, all burglars’ first priority upon breaking into a house should be to videotape themselves having sex on the floor. But when the neighbor catches you, it’s generally considered good form to take the tape with you when you flee.

Turns out that identifying naked burglars on videotape is actually easier for the police than identifying them clothed.

    LOL. Ally (a deputy sheriff) tells a story of arresting a man in a small town near Eugene for violation of a restraining order. He was stalking his girlfriend and heard her call the police and describe what he was wearing. In his intoxicated state, he reasoned that if he took his clothing off, the police wouldn’t be able to identify him. He went to jail naked. Ally fondly refers to this type of reasoning and behavior as “job security.”
