Subject: RE: BS: Crime in Canada, England and Oz
In late November, 2001, Larry Howells was arrested in Erlanger, Kentucky, for molesting young boys and supplying them with marijuana. On or very close to December 1, 2001, he was shot in the "groin" by the mother of two of the boys -- she had a "concealed carry permit" and used a .357 magnum pistol to literally blow his scrotum and testicles off. Immediately afterwards she turned herself over to the police, the officers who had been escorting Howells, in fact.

Howells is in prison for supplying drugs and child molestation, serving something like 35 years. The prosecutor is still trying to find a venue in which to try the woman.

The story is carried in the Cincinnati papers; you can search for it at

The Oz story sound a lot like the Northern Kentucky one....
