I bet if you live in central Wyoming the last thing you would expect is a
"WHEATLAND, Wyo. (AP) — Residents of Wheatland, a quiet agricultural town in central Wyoming, plan a community barbeque to raise money for funeral expenses for victims of a shooting spree.
Authorities say a man opened fire inside a mobile home here Thursday night killing his three sons and a brother. The man's wife was wounded.
Mayor Jean Dixon says the killings are shocking to residents of Wheatland, a quiet, agricultural town of some 3,600.
Everett E. Conant III, who's in his mid-30s, surrendered without incident and was charged with first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, battery and a weapons violation.
Prosecutors say Conant could face the death penalty. His lawyer declined comment." [Story]
Sudden? Yes. Surprising? No.
And speaking of sudden. Here is more on Mr. One Punch. Seems my man is a teacher and an assistant football coach. His wife works in a bank. Hmmm, hardly seems like a thug to me.
"Leticia Hawkins said the confrontation came during the first hours of a three-day visit to Las Vegas with her husband, a father of three, and their friends Jeremy and Kristina Brown of Monticello, Fla.
Benjamin Hawkins is a teacher and assistant football coach at Bradford County High School in Starke, Fla.
Jeremy Brown said later Friday he didn't think racial bias played a role in Hawkins' mind during the confrontation.
"Ben did not hit the other person just because he was white," Brown said. "Race may have been what motivated the other guy." [Story]
Race motivated the other guy? Noooo! He was just a "fashionista" trying to help a sartorially challenged man out.
Finally,all of you people out there in New Jersey creeping on your significant other; here is some news you might want to be aware of.
"Suspecting infidelity, a New Jersey woman, hired a private investigator to follow her husband. The investigator tried, but could not follow the elusive husband. So they put a GPS tracking device on the husband’s car, which is pretty tough to outrun. Needless to say, within a very short period of time, the GPS showed the husband’s car sitting in the driveway of a woman who was not his wife.
The husband sued his wife and the private investigator. The appellate court judge however ruled in favor of the wife and private investigator.
Appellate Judge Joseph Lisa, Jack Sabatino and Carmen Alvarez said Villanova (the husband) had no right to expect privacy because the GPS tracked his movements on public streets.
“There is no direct evidence in this record to establish that during the approximately 40 days the GPS was in the … glove compartment the device captured a movement of plaintiff into a secluded location that was not in public view, and, if so, that such information was passed along by Mrs. Villanova to (Leonard), Lisa wrote.” [Story]
I don't live in New Jersey, but even if I did, I would say "bring it on Mrs. Field!"
Let me stop. The theme tonight is "sudden destruction". I don't need to experience that right now.
