Just saw a headline:

UFC Star sends would-be mugger to hospital - Haha!!
(I really don't need to read the rest)

Made me think of two other recent stories:

Would-be kidnapper chases woman into Martial Arts studio
Didn't end too well for the would-be kidnapper, as you can guess.

And last but certainly not least:
Child-porn convict dies in prison fight
If I remember correctly, it was less than a month into his sentence... bummer

Maybe a little on the dark side of Good News, but...

Have you seen any Karma in the News?

The Palm Beach Post reports 68-year-old Steve Shepherd was limping to his car last week, a pulled muscle impairing his stride, when a mugger hit him in the head with a bottle and demanded his cellphone.

Bad choice.

Shepherd is a five-time world kickboxing champ. Though retired 18 years, he's been training to become the oldest professional fighter. He has a March bout scheduled.

Shepherd threw a right cross to the attacker's head, and then smashed a hook to his ribs, crumpling him. Bystanders interceded and the man escaped. Shepherd suffered a ruptured eardrum, a cut and bruise.

The Palm Beach Sheriff's Office says security video shows the attacker is about 20 and had prowled the area for hours, seeking a victim.

Federal authorities this week arrested a North Carolina man who allegedly ran with a group of online hooligans that attacked Web sites (including this one), took requests on Twitter to call in bomb threats to thousands of schools, and tried to frame various online gaming sites as the culprits. In an ironic twist, the accused — who had fairly well separated his real life identity from his online personas — appears to have been caught after a gaming Web site he frequented got hacked.

Only a skull and a pair of trousers remained after a suspected rhino poacher was killed by an elephant and then eaten by lions in Kruger National Park, South African National Parks said.

Nice timing. This was in the news today:

Poacher killed by elephant and eaten by lions.

Only his skull and pair of pants remained.

Facebook taunts



The Greene County Sheriff's Office confirmed her arrest in an updated post, writing, "Ms. Chloe Jones and her witty comments are taking a hiatus from our Facebook comments section due to the jail not having internet for her to use"

A little more sobering - but still "Karma":

Timothy Roshun Smith was shot in the leg and chest, and his daughter’s leg was injured, when a loaded gun in a diaper bag went off Saturday outside a Chuck E. Cheese’s.

The father died.

Authorities say that more than 100 missing vehicles, including 50 Mercedes-Benz, may have been fraudulently rented through a mobile app in Chicago.

Not sure if this should go in Karma, or my Paranoia post, or a new one called "No s*** Sherlock!"
