Famous pop-up prosecutor vows to fry Hamburglar.

Hareford Current News (Comedy Division)

Story by Reporter Stacy Jordon Cox

NEW LONDON COUNTY, CT -- It was a hot July day when the corpulent Connecticut pop-up prosecutor, known for convicting a computer illiterate substitute school teacher for porn pop-ups on an unsecured classroom computer, witnessed what he called, "A heinous act of fry theft" at his favorite eatery. Prosecutor David J. Smith was ordering a platter of hamburgers for colleagues in a New London County McDonald's when he saw a short man in a mask and striped suit reach onto Ronald McDonald's serving tray and grab a pack of French fries. Prosecutor Smith directed a McDonald's employee to call 911, then wrestled the fries from the suspect and took him into custody.

When asked about his bold act of courage Smith replied, "I'll have another hamburger please," ignoring the question.
Smith later told reporters he wanted to seek life in prison for the theft, but Chief prosecutor Kevin Kane, slurred between sips of a beer, that "the penalty should only apply to theft of American fries and not French fries". Despite advice from his supervisor, Smith vows to seek the maximum penalty in the case. The alleged victim Ronald McDonald may not be able to testify due to the fact he has been called to jury duty on another porn pop-up case.

The court has determined that the masked man - known as the Hamburglar, is incompetent to stand trial on the charges, but if convicted, he could face up to 40 years, 3 months, 2 days and 4 hours in prison. The courts explained this will be a difficult case and that finding a judge to stay awake during the trial will be next to impossible.

'Go to Jail or the Cemetery'

Cleveland City Councilman's Letter Tells Teen 'Go to Jail or the Cemetery'

CLEVELAND — A city councilman fed up with crime told a teenager with a record that goes back two years to "go to jail or the cemetery," prompting the young man's mother to complain that the letter was threatening.

Was the letter from Councilman Michael Polensek a threat or a warning from a public official to a thug to get out of the neighborhood?

"I think of it as a death threat to my son. It's real simple," Tonya Lewis, mother of Arsenio T. Winston, 18, said Thursday. She said her son wasn't available for an interview but might be reached at another time.

Polensek, Cleveland's longest-serving council member with 28 years, wasn't backing down.

"I'm not wrong on this issue," he said Thursday. He said the letter wasn't intended as a threat.

Polensek, who has had four vans stolen, mailed the letter last week after learning that Winston had been arrested in the blue-collar Collinwood neighborhood on July 3 on drug-trafficking charges.

"You are a `thug' and you know what," the letter said. "There are only two places you will end up at the rate you are going — that is, prison or the nearest funeral home."

The letter said Winston "must be dumber than mud" to get arrested, called him "you crack dealing piece of trash" and said "only a moron" would get involved in an alleged assault on a police officer.

The letter was signed: "Go to jail or the cemetery soon — Michael D. Polensek." Polensek said the signoff was meant to highlight the likely outcome of Winston's lifestyle.

Winston, who was charged with aggravated assault in 2005 and spent three months in juvenile detention, was arrested last year in the alleged assault on an officer but the case was dismissed. He is out on bond on the drug trafficking charge.

Polensek and Winston have a history. Polensek told Winston and his companions last year about complaints of broken glass and drug-dealing in a playground and asked them to clean up after themselves.

Winston, then 17, refused to shake hands, told Polensek to kiss his rear end and said he was heading for an NFL quarterback's job, Polensek said.

"I am so glad that you are now 18 years of age, because now you are an adult and can no longer hide behind the juvenile court system, Mr. Quarterback, loser," Polensek said in the letter.

Polensek made sure the letter got maximum exposure, sending copies to the mayor's staff, police commanders and to The Plain Dealer.

Polensek said he often writes blunt letters to troublemakers in his neighborhood and makes no apologies for the one to Winston.

Winston's mother said she wouldn't defend his lifestyle. "I don't approve of anything, any illegal activity," she said.

Sympathy for the Devil Lyrics, The Rolling Stones

Please allow me to introduce myself
Im a man of wealth and taste
Ive been around for a long, long year
Stole many a mans soul and faith
And I was round when jesus christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But whats puzzling you
Is the nature of my game
I stuck around st. petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank
Held a generals rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
Ah, whats puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
I watched with glee
While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the gods they made
I shouted out,
Who killed the kennedys?
When after all
It was you and me
Let me please introduce myself
Im a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached bombay
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But whats puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah, get down, baby
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, oh yeah
But whats confusing you
Is just the nature of my game
Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints
As heads is tails
Just call me lucifer
cause Im in need of some restraint
So if you meet me
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
Use all your well-learned politesse
Or Ill lay your soul to waste, um yeah
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name, um yeah
But whats puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, um mean it, get down
Woo, who
Oh yeah, get on down
Oh yeah
Oh yeah!
Tell me baby, whats my name
Tell me honey, can ya guess my name
Tell me baby, whats my name
