TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (225)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (via Venkat Balsubramani) (from Sunday, June 21; links good at time of posting):
A man who allegedly wanted to buy some marijuana was arrested after he mistakenly sent a text message to a Salem police officer, authorities said yesterday.

Cpl. Christopher Pew was off-duty when he received the message on his personal cell phone last week. Since he didn't know the person who had sent the text or whether it was a serious request, Pew agreed to meet the texter at a shopping center, and the person described what vehicle he would be driving.

That led to the arrests of John Milligan, 22, and Kelly Reilly, 20 . . . .
