TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (25)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Monday, Auguist 1; link good at time of posting):
A Kansas teenager has been sentenced to clean up vomit in police cars.

But officers in Johnson County aren't sure how they'll carry out the sentence. The 17-year-old boy was convicted of vomiting on his Spanish teacher on purpose. A judge ordered the teen to perform clean-up duty for four months anytime someone gets sick in a patrol car.

But police in Overland Park note they often have a biohazard company clean up vomit, if there's a possibility of disease. Overland Park police spokesman Jim Weaver wants to know if they're going to have to give the kid a biohazard suit.

But local police officials say they'll work with the county court in making sure the sentence is carried out in an appropriate manner.
