People Of South Carolina....Really?

I think we have more than our fair share of wack jobs here in South Carolina, and I'm not talking about just Mark Sanford, Nikki Haley, Jim DeMint, Joe Wilson, Andre Bauer, Jake Knotts and Lindsay Graham--oh god, it looks even more awful when you put all their names up.

And yet, here in our lovely state, we also have normal, every day, walking the streets like regular folk, wack jobs. I posted about the guy who was arrested fro raping, um, horses [see A Man And A Horse Named Sugar]. And then there was the guy who, after his arrest, it was discovered he had a live mouse up his bum [see Somebody Slipped Him A Mickey].

Yeah, we have some wack-a-doos, and here's another one.

Miriam Smith
Police have arrested and charged sixty-five-year-old Miriam Smith with felony animal cruelty after it was discovered that she had hanged her nephew's pit bull with an electrical cord, and then set the remains on fire.

So, did the dog attack her? Was it a biter that made walking in the yard impossible? Perhaps it was rabid.

No. No. And No.

Miriam Smith hung  the dog and then set it on fire because it chewed on her Bible.
Indeed. And, because it was a Bible-eating dog, it was also, according to Smith, a "devil dog" that she worried would harm neighborhood children. 

So, she killed it.

She's being held in Spartanburg County, and faces 180 days to five years in prison if convicted.

South Carolina: Land Of The Political Wack-A-Doos...the Horse Raping Wack-A-Doos...the Mouse In The Ass Wack-A-Doos....and the Dog Killin' Wack-A-Doos.

I know I've said this before Bob, I'm so happy to be away from the south. We have wackos here, but they just don't have the flare of southern wackos do and that's a good thing.
