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.
****HUMOR **** SATIRE***

As he didn't kill anyone, Anthony will take his sentence like a man.

Hey, it's OK, the world doesn't like him being in it any more than he does.

He and his rants about ''sodomy'' should just go AWAY. This man CLEARLY has no sense of justice, equality and civil rights for everyone.

I did laugh out loud. Oh, how I wish this was true. What a fuggin' misanthrope. Can't call him a Neanderthal, that would be an insult to our ancestral cousins.

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

Funny. I don't either.

Lol.....I knew he was hiding some pyromaniac tendencies! Oh, Scalia is probably pissed since, in his dissent, he pretty much gave every social activist the roadmap on how to get every state to pass gay marriage. There's nothing worse than giving the people you hate a helping hand to destroy everything you hold sacred, like inequality and discrimination.
