Which leads me to Mr. Kieu: ( I think that's his name.)
"Kieu and her husband were still living together in a Garden Grove condo that he owned. He had filed for divorce in May, and they argued before the attack about friends staying at the condo, authorities said.
On Monday night, police say Kieu spiked a meal and served it to the victim.
The 60-year-old man started to feel sick and went to lie down, then awoke tied to the bed as Kieu attacked him with a 10-inch kitchen knife, police said.
She then put the penis down a garbage disposal, police said.
"It's hard to believe what would motivate a person to do this sort of thing," the district attorney's chief of staff, Susan Kang Schroeder, said outside court. "It's one of the worst things you could do to a person short of killing him."
Newly appointed defense attorney Lee Gabriel made no public statement after the hearing.
Police did not release the victim's name. He underwent surgery and was listed in good condition at University of California at Irvine Medical Center, hospital spokesman John Murray said.
Murray declined to say whether the penis was reattached or provide any additional details about the victim's condition, citing patient privacy laws.
Kieu was charged with one felony count of torture, one felony count of aggravated mayhem and sentencing enhancements for great bodily injury and personal use of a knife. If convicted of all counts, she could face life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Garden Grove Police Lt. Jeff Nightengale said Kieu called police Monday night to report a medical emergency and told arriving officers "he deserved it" before pointing to the room where the victim was found bleeding profusely. She was taken into custody without incident and refused to talk to officers further.
The couple was married in December 2009. When the victim filed for divorce, he cited irreconcilable differences, court records show. Kieu was slowly moving her things out of the condo, authorities said.
The victim declined to comment when he was reached by phone Tuesday by The Orange County Register.
"This is a private matter," he said.'[Story]
"Private matter"? I don't think so Mr. Kieu. With all due respect, this is a very public matter. Every one of us out here who share that particular body part with you.....wait, I take that back.... Everyone of us out here who share that body part that you used to have are affected by this story. It was painful just reading about it. I swear this adds a whole new meaning to the term ground beef.
I know that "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned", but ladies, even you all have to admit that this was a bit much. Please tell me that girlfriend isn't starting a new trend. And why did she have to put the poor man's pleasure stick down the garbage disposal? I mean that's like adding insult to injury. Couldn't she have just thrown the damn thing away like Lorena Bobbitt? I guess she wanted to make sure my man never used it again. It's amazing what they can do with modern science these days.
I have some protective athletic cups around here somewhere. I think I will start wearing those bad boys to bed.
Finally, I loved this Harold Meyerson article on the republiclowns war on government. Make no mistake, it is a war,but it is one that they will ultimately lose. Why? Because at some point people will wake up and realize that they are being hoodwinked. Not all the people, just enough folks to vote their asses right back out.
