Knifing cartons of poisoned milk
Tacoma News Tribune ^ | 09/08/2012

Posted on 09/11/2012 9:21:25 AM PDT by Uncle Miltie

Aug. 29: The milk was poisoned, the man said – so he stabbed it with a kitchen knife.

Officers responded to a report of a man with a knife at a grocery store in the 4000 block of South Tacoma Avenue. The report said the man was stabbing milk cartons and screaming.

The officer arrived and cautiously edged toward the dairy section. He saw a man crouched by aisle 9, near a cooler. A broken jug of milk left a puddle nearby. Puddles of milk and the remnants of other containers marked a trail along the aisle.

Two other officers joined in. They took the man down and cuffed him. He didn’t resist, but he wailed about the poisoned milk. No one was listening to him, he said.

The officer asked who had poisoned the milk. The man said he didn’t know.

Was anything else poisoned? The man said no – just the milk. He’d called the health department a day earlier to send out the warning but was told all the milk was safe.

The store’s dairy manager had a wet shirt. He said the man had thrown a carton of milk at him. A broken kitchen knife sat on the floor by the dairy case. The manager said that was the knife the man had been carrying.

The manager had confronted the man to stop him from stabbing the milk cartons, and threatened to call police. Hearing that, the man had stopped in his tracks. He sank to a kneeling position, almost praying, and said nothing more until police arrived.

The carton-slasher had a prior arrest warrant for trespassing. He was booked into the Pierce County Jail on suspicion of malicious mischief and possession of a dangerous weapon.

So, this guy goes into a store and starts puncturing jugs of milk that creates puddles on the floor.

I’d be testing the milk and asking why he believes it’s poisoned before I wrote the man off as crazy.

Threw the poisoned milk? That's attempted murder.

Anyway, everyone knows that the poison was really in the cans of beans.

Florida has banned the Bath Salts and such, but they keep popping up in different forms, incense, room fragrance, car deodorizers, etc.......

Agreed. If it is, then all charges should be dropped, and he should be commended.

We need one of those 4-H kids who can detect milk contaminants by taste, like in Napoleon Dynamite.

North Carolina hasn’t collected enough taxes on them yet, to shut the flow down from that state. NC bath salts have been found connected to E. TN crimes recently.

Raw milk is far better for you than pasteurized. Louis Pasteur for whom the process was named admitted on his deathbed that he was wrong, the pathogens that were harmful came from how the milk was gathered and handled, not from the milk itself.

Do some research on the subject and then see what you think

And BTW no one is worshiping anything just looking for equal access to a better product

>>> “Anyway, everyone knows that the poison was really in the cans of beans.”

Why? Is that what the carrots told you?

Now that's funny right there.

The man got it wrong. Actually, on average, it is the fish sauce that is poissoned.

One ‘convenience store’ here has been busted several times. All the cops can do is confiscate the stuff and next week it’s back under new names and different labels.............

Do you ever want to go in a store and stab the pasteurized milk?
