There are stories that make you really mad and then there is this one. In 1997 a 9 year old girl told police her father raped her. He was then sent sentenced to 20-40 years in prison and barred from seeing his five kids because he refused to plea deal. Now, 16 years later the daughter is trying to have him released because she says made the whole thing up to avoid being beaten by her drug addicted mother. Despite numerous efforts to recant her story following the sentence, authorities refused to listen.

Telling people you were shot by ninjas is no way to go through life son. The teen, who rocked up to hospital with a gunshot wound to his groin, originally told police he’d been shot by two men dressed as ninjas but when police found no evidence at the scene the kid confessed he had accidentally shot himself. Not cool to be telling that to your gang members.
Tsk, tsk, Rob Sloan. The runner who came third in the Kielder marathon in England had to give his medal back after witnesses saw him catch a bus for the last section of the race and then jump off just before the finishing line. Once off the bus he hid in a wooded area behind a tree until the first and second runners jogged past then he rejoined the race. Mr Sloan was originally outraged that anyone would accuse him of cheating but later admitted to it after witnesses saw him on the bus. It also didn’t help that the lead pack couldn’t understand how he had passed them. After the race a smug Sloan told reporters the race as “absolutely, unbelievably tough”. Awkward.
