Here we are, my friends…another Friday with another week has come and gone. Were you glued to the television this week watching the Summer Olympics? It seems that while many of us were focused on sportsman-like competition of few people were focused on other pursuits.
Wheels of SUV Move Faster than Wheels of Justice
The attorney of a Utah woman charged with ramming an SUV through an office building to hit her estranged husband says she was on a large amount of anxiety medication and was “not in her right mind.”
Attorney Jason Schatz made the argument Tuesday during the start of the trial for 36-year-old Brenda Christine White.
“On that day, Brenda White’s body was behind the wheel of that Ford Explorer,” Schatz said. “What’s in dispute is why this happened.”
The incident happened in 2006 but there have been several appeals because her defense attorneys have appealed to use the argument that White was under extreme emotional distress.
Authorities said White hit her ex-husband twice with her Ford Explorer after crashing through the office building in Salt Lake County.
Jon Robert White said he initially ran from a parking garage when he saw his ex-wife in the SUV. He said he ran between two parked cars, jumped over a concrete wall, and into an office, before his ex-wife crashed through the glass doors and hit him. He said he got up and ran but she drove down a hallway and chased him, hitting him again.
He said he hid in a closet until a maintenance man found him.
Brenda White’s attorneys say she did not intend to kill her ex-husband. Schatz said she suffered from panic attacks and anxiety and on that day she had taken a lot of medication.
“At some point in our lives we have all done or said something that we wouldn’t have done if we were in total control of our body,” Schatz said.
Speak for yourself, Schatz! I might of done some stupid asinine things that I now regret but I was in control of my body…it was more my brain was not under control. Still, not once have I driven my Explorer through the hallways of an office building.
The man seems pretty good at dodging his lunatic ex-wife. Perhaps he has had practice.
Hot Dog! They’re Free
If you were walking around the streets of Manhattan, NY this week you might of thought there were new hot dog vendors hawking their dogs on the street.
Upon closer inspection…you would realize that hot dogs are not the product at these carts.
The makers of Trojan Vibrations personal pleasure devices are distributing their wares for free on New York streets with a cart modeled after a hot dog vendor.
The company said its Trojan Vibrations Pleasure Carts will distribute a total 10,000 vibrators during the month of August.
Bruce Weiss, vice president of marketing for Trojan Sexual Health. “We’re always looking for ways to advance this effort by fostering an open dialogue about sexual health and creating unique moments that get people ‘buzzing’ (buzzing…really?) about sex and pleasure.”
Interesting job Mr. Weiss has “creating unique moments” to get people talking about sex. I bet some people have gotten arrested for trying to do that.Boyfriend Was Being a A Pain in the AssA Pennsylvania woman with a severely sunburned butt, stabbed her boyfriend with a large steak knife after he slapped her rear end while she was doing the dishes in her home, cops report.
According to the police report, Tiffany Sherry was cleaning the dishes when her boyfriend, Michael Martinez, “slapped her in the buttocks.” Martinez told a Bethlehem cop that he did this as a “joke” since he “was aware Sherry had sunburn in the area.”
Sherry, however, did not find this amusing and “became immediately agitated.”
Martinez told cops that “Sherry turned around from the sink and was holding a large steak knife.” As he backed away, Martinez recalled, Sherry followed him into the living room. He then asked her, “What are you going to do, stab me in front of your children?” (there’s a problem!)
After directing her two children to leave the room, (there’s a solution to above stated problem) Sherry allegedly “poked” Martinez in the abdomen with the knife, and then stabbed him in the shoulder. Before stabbing him a third time, “Sherry screamed, ‘I’m going to f****** kill you.’” (why she felt the need to clarify this point, I am not sure…as I think it is pretty clear what her intentions are)
When cops arrived at Martinez’s residence, they found him bleeding from a stomach wound and observed “two distinct cuts to the front and rear of [his] right shoulder area.” Martinez was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
Sherry has a prior arrest on her record. She was busted in 2008 after allegedly stabbing a man with a fork during an argument over diapers, She remained in jail on a $25,000.00 bond on this current charge.
Anyone willing to take a bet that her next arrest will involve the use of a spoon?
Baby For Sale
Not the only baby to ever show up on Craig’s List
A Canadian woman called police when she found an online ad offering her baby for sale based on photos she’d posted on Facebook.
The unidentified woman in the central British Columbia town of Fort St. John called the Royal Canadian Mounted Police when she spotted the ad in an online buy-and-sell site, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.
RCMP Sgt. Steve Perret told the broadcaster the ad had been removed this week and electronic forensic investigators had a suspect.
“To me, this looks like a case of somebody’s twisted or perverted sense of humor, by posting these types of ads trying to sell somebody else’s child,” he said. “Additionally there was an ad where he was trying to sell a dead dog.”
The woman had posted pictures of her baby on Facebook, which were copied for use in the ad, the CBC said.I don’t know why this one struck me odd. I have seen all kinds of interesting things for sale on Craig’s List and Ebay. I haven’t noticed any of my minor relatives…or the dead dog but be sure to email me if you see either of those things. I think the down side to this lady seeing her baby’s picture is if people were showing more interest in purchasing the dead dog. That could hurt someone’s feelings.
