Number Eight: Justice is Served. In 2008, a weird action of justice took place in Kentucky. A 70-year-old man named Mel Ignato fell face first into his glass coffee table, and bled to death after being stuck so deeply by the glass.

Number Seven: Death Row. Criminal Lawrence Baker was sent to death row after he mugged a who he beat and later shot all on Christmas Day. He was originally to be sent to the electric chair, but the sentence was later changed to life in prison.
