It’s a beautiful Wednesday, and a perfect time to settle in and read some police reports. Today’s theme: Broken relationships.

A longtime friendship is in jeopardy, two women were punched in the face, and one lady keeps getting harassing calls from her ex-daughter-in-law.

On the other hand, a store attendant found room in his or her heart to forgive a phone thief. There is still some good in this world, after all.
