WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a shocking end to an illustrious legal career, police arrested Justice Antonin Scalia today as he attempted to set the Supreme Court building ablaze.

Justice Scalia, who had seemed calm and composed during the announcement of two major rulings this morning, was spotted by police minutes later outside the building, carrying a book of matches and a gallon of kerosene.

After police nabbed Justice Scalia and placed him in handcuffs, the Juror appeared “at peace and resigned to his fate,” a police spokesman said.

“He went quietly,” the spokesman said. “He just muttered something like, ‘I don’t want to live in a world like this.’ ”

Back at the Supreme Court, Justice Scalia’s colleagues said they hoped he would get the help he needed, except for Justice Clarence Thomas, who said nothing.

Well, I think the question we need to ask here is .....was he really trying to burn the place down or was he just trying to start a little fire for warmth to help the homeless outside? See.... He might be all heart and here we are, looking at him like a felon. Poor guy.....

I do like the headline at the bottom tho.

OBAMA ASKS STAFF TO START CC’ING HIM ON STUFF

Now that might not be a bad idea with how much comes as a total shock these days.

Well, there ya go. I'll bet that's all it was. He was just testing the grounds for how suitable a big BBQ might be to celebrate their own greatness. Indeed..... All kinds of reasons for a thing like this. We should be ashamed...always assuming the worst.
