familiar name demands justice in Las Vegas:

Jerry Halfpap, 46, David Hicks, 44, and Eastman Webber, 65, seek $2 million each for civil rights violations. The men were each accused of sleeping too close to a deposit of feces—a law that the city adopted in August but repealed in September.

I’m not sure if we have any similar laws here, but, just to be on the safe side, local transients should avoid wrapping themselves in The Age. Meanwhile, the nightmare continues for Australia’s Dave:

His lawyer was banned from giving him Scott Turow’s legal thriller Presumed Innocent.

    1. Hold on a sec. Lemme see if I have this correct.

      These guys are sueing because the cops gave them some grief about sleeping next to a pile of shit?

      I guess the old timers were right when they said that giving up the pillory and stocks would encourage public displays of idjitarianism.

    1. Halfpap? I guess we know where the other half was then.

    1. Oh great Tim, thanks.

      Now Bracksy will implement a law that no one can be within 50 feet of any poop or face a $500 fine.

      There goes visiting parks, going to the toilet, being in many public places…

    1. Anyone who sleeps in the vicinity of Aussie Dave also aught to hope they don’t have that law in the local jurisdiction…

      I have lost track of this turd, is he back here in Oz yet, or is he still bunging up the US legal system…

      And Halfpap… Isn’t that just one of those names like Bumbak or something that you would get legally changed the minute you hit 18???

    1. I’ve seen the homeless guys in Las Vegas, and frankly, sleeping near piles of feces is not their problem.

      Also, Clive Stafford Smith is a tool.

    1. My bedroom is within 500 feet of my backyard, where my dog poops.

      My entire property is within 500 feet of the cat litter-box, where the cats do their catly business.

      Bracksy is bound to hit me up for at least $2000.

    1. Apparently, piles of feces have been complaining to the municipal government about homeless moving into the neighbourhood. Hmm. I wonder if a stool pigeon turned them in?

    1. And not about a David Hicks, but undoubtedly a black, American cousin of David’s who’s just had an unfortunate run-in with the Second Amendment:
