What is wrong with people? Woman jailed after McDonald’s shooting over bacon-less burger

 

Girlfriend has a temper...

Girlfriend just wanted some bacon…

MSN.com: A Michigan woman was sentenced three to seven years in prison after firing her gun at a McDonald’s drive-through when her hamburger was delivered twice without bacon, local media reported.

Shaneka Monique Torres, 30, was convicted in March of carrying a concealed weapon, discharging a firearm into a building and felony use of a firearm, according to ABC affiliate WZZM in Grand Rapids.

A judge sentenced her to serve three to seven years in prison at a hearing Tuesday.

Torres visited a McDonald’s drive-through with a friend on the night of February 10, 2014 and ordered bacon cheeseburgers. When the meal arrived with no bacon, a manager apologized and offered her a free meal, WZZM reported.

She returned several hours later and again received her hamburger without the bacon, at which point she screamed at the restaurant worker and pulled a handgun from her purse, firing a round at the building. There were no injuries reported, but the shots shattered the driver side window of her car.

She was arrested about one mile from the restaurant about 30 minutes later. Her defense lawyer said the shooting was an accident, and was not about receiving her hamburger without bacon, according to WZZM.

Yeah, riiiiight. Because every time I remove my handgun from my purse, I just accidently pull the trigger.

One more time: The Ten Commandments

I know this has been dealt with on FOTM, but I wanted to think about the subject again. These commands are not burdensome. In fact, they have been used for ages to build stable societies with beneficial laws. They even figure in to many psychological remedies for people who need counseling and therapy. And yet, our darkened culture is at risk of removing them from the public square.

What would we replace them with?

“Do your own thing?”
We all know that leads to self destruction like Ferguson.

“Sharia?”
Did you know there is no law against murder in Sharia?

We have benefited for a long time by the guiding mechanisms of these laws, and not even been aware of it. When a natural disaster strikes, most of us never cast a thought to the break down of society. But in a corrupt society, disaster becomes an opportunity to rob, rape and murder, like in the Rodney King riots and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

The Ten Commandments – Exodus 20:2-17

  1. I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.
  2. You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My Commandments.
  3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
  4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
  5. Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
  6. You shall not murder.
  7. You shall not commit adultery.
  8. You shall not steal.
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.

Shocker, not: Audit finds California departments break law, game personnel system for money

state_worker_shuffle

Sacramento Bee: A new state audit concludes that California state departments illegally pad their budgets with millions of tax dollars earmarked for employee salaries by manipulating their payroll to make it appear they have more employees than they do.

The report released Friday on the Department of Finance’s website did not include an estimate of how much money departments hoard by breaking the law, but it confirms a 2014 Sacramento Bee investigation that concluded tens of millions of tax dollars earmarked to pay workers is hoarded and funneled to other purposes.

By law, departments are supposed to forfeit money for a position that goes unfilled for six months, returning it to its source fund for reallocation. But as The Bee’s report and the new state audit found, departments deceptively move employees between jobs ahead of the six-month deadline. They accomplish the phony transfers by altering the identifying job numbers to make it appear that a position was filled with a transferred employee, thus avoiding a cut to their budgets.

The unspent salary can then be used for other operating costs, such as paying off leave balances, covering office rent, purchasing new equipment or funding employee raises. The Bee found instances of employees “transferring” between positions in as little as two days. In one instance, a Department of Food and Agriculture worker moved 14 times through nine positions in one fiscal year. Her title and workplace never changed, but the serial numbers the state used to identify her position changed repeatedly.

The audit was based on a sample of 798 “transactions” in which multiple transfers occurred in 10 departments. It found “widespread noncompliance” with the law: 58 percent of the transactions “lacked adequate justification or documentation to determine compliance or were found to be noncompliant.” It did not name individual departments.

It also described a “general lack of commitment” by managers and other top department officials to follow the vacancy rules. It said they plotted about how to avoid them.  “We observed a culture at some departments where circumvention of the code was commonplace and even encouraged by management,” the audit read.

Among the other findings:

  • At one department, the same employee was transferred into multiple positions. The department could offer no justification for the transfers and “noted that these types of transfers were typically initiated to preserve the positions.”
  •  Most transfers of employees to vacant positions lacked adequate documentations. At one department, 104 of 118 transfers lacked supporting documentations.
  • Several departments changed employees’ position numbers, even if there were no changes in an employee’s job description or funding source.
  • In one department, units routinely swapped vacant positions closing in on the six-month threshold with positions that had been vacant for a shorter amount of time. There are no state policies regulating the movement of vacant positions within a department.
  • The state rule is based on the honor system. All 10 departments said they complied with the rule. Auditors, though, found that nine were not in full compliance.

The audit noted that departments face no penalties for violating the law. “In the absence of specific accountability measures, consequences or penalties, departments appear willing to circumvent the code to preserve positions,” the audit read.

Some departments justified the vacancy shuffling by telling auditors it sometimes took longer than six months to fill a position. Departments have the ability to restore a position that has been eliminated, but department managers viewed that process as onerous and with no guarantees that they would get the position back, the audit said. “Instead, departments have chosen noncompliance out of convenience and to reduce the risk of permanently losing the positions,” the audit said.

The report notably lacks any estimate of how much money the illegal vacancy maneuvers diverted from other state programs and uses. The Bee 2014 investigation estimated, conservatively, that the average total pay shielded by illegal transfers in 2012 and 2013 was at least $80 million.

drain

The audit offered several recommendations. Officials could abolish the 2012 rule and create a new one that includes a process for monitoring departments’ compliance, it said. Or officials could increase oversight of departments’ compliance with the existing rule.

Lynda Gledhill, spokeswoman for the California Government Operations Agency, said the administration will present its response next month. “The state must focus on recruiting and retaining the best available workforce and the May Revision will include specific proposals to respond to the issues raised in the audit,” she said in a statement.

Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, said the practice lets the government hide money. “The state has been caught red-handed engaging in what appears to be intentional personnel mismanagement,” he said. “It’s contrary to the notion of transparency in government. This practice has got the stop and those responsible for it held accountable and reprimanded.”

Sodomite has silicone injections to enlarge penis to 9 lbs

Homosexual men are obsessed with their penises:

The latest evidence of sodomites’ penis-obsession is a homosexual German man, Micha Stunz, who enlarged his penis with silicone injections so that his unwieldy organ now measures 9 inches, with a girth of 3.5 inches, and weighs a ridiculous 9 lbs.

The Daily Mail is coy about Stunz’ sexual “orientation,” but the picture below of a leather-clad Stunz at a bondage-fetish Folsom Europe Festival in Berlin makes that clear.

Micha Stunz at the bondage & fetish Folsom Europe Festival in Berlin

 Stunz, 45, who lives in Berlin, told Vice.com that “I can’t say exactly how much it weighs, I just know that my kitchen scale, which shows up to 6.6 lb, hasn’t been enough for a while.”

He said he had his penis permanently enlarged in this way, not because it makes him feel more beautiful, but because it makes him feel “better” — whatever that means — although the silicone implants provide no physical pleasure and actually make sex much more difficult for him because “After you reach a certain size, you can’t do certain things any more.” But he insists “there are other things you can do with it. You just have to free yourself from established roles and ideas about sex and be ready to play.”

He also can no longer get a normal erection.

Stunz’s interest in enlarging his penis began 20 years ago when he was given a penis pump as a present. He found that “that when I went out pumped up, it was a good feeling, it felt great. I had the feeling that I wasn’t trapped in the body I was born with, but that I had the possibility to shape it myself to change it.”

So he began enlarging himself with saline injections, but stopped because although “The feeling was great, but I didn’t like getting the injections- there’s always a risk of infection. And also the people around me started to wonder why my groin area would change in size. That’s why I started looking for something more permanent.”

It took him several years to find out about silicone injections, which were only available in London when he first began researching them. Instead of seeking professional medical help, he met a medical student who agreed to perform the first injections. To date, Stunz has had four procedures which involved injecting silicone into his penis and scrotum.

But Berlin urologist Dr. Aref el Seweife, who carries out penis enlargements, warns that injecting silicon into the penis can lead to an infection that will leave it mutilated: “In worst cases, it can lead to an enlarged artery in the scrotum and the testicles die.” A 2012 study in the Urology Annals concluded that “penile enhancement procedures with liquid silicone by non-medical personnel could result in devastating consequences.”

Stunz claims he leads a “normal life” — “I go to work, buy groceries, go to bars, clubs, and to the movies. I usually try to make sure it isn’t too obvious. But I guess it isn’t easy buying a new pair of pants.” He prefers to urinate sitting down in a cubicle because he attracts odd looks when using public urinals.

While sometimes he says he is pleased to get so much attention, at other times he uses a satchel bag to cover his bulge.

He insists “I’m actually a pretty shy person,” but has no qualms attending the Folsom Europe Festival – a bondage, fetish and latex affair in Berlin — garbed in a specially-made pair of latex pants to show off his 9-lb penis. Stunz explains why he loves the “festival”: “You can offer up who you are and show yourself the way you want without having to think about what other people will think of you.”

Stunz says he’s worried that potential partners are only interested in him for his penis: “You get reduced to the bulge obviously. There’s always that danger in the relationship. But if you take the time to get to know the other person, you find out whether he really loves you or just a part of you.”

Stunz also claims to conceal his silicone-infused penis from his boss and members of his family, which is odd indeed since they now know because he’s so “shy” that he blabbed to the press.

Judge Cuts 15 Years Off Mandatory Sentence of Man Convicted of Sodomizing Toddler

messed up

KTLA.com: An Orange County Superior Court judge decided a Santa Ana man convicted of sexually assaulting a child should not have to serve the minimum sentence of 25 years to life in prison, saying that the sentence would be cruel and unusual punishment.

A jury found Kevin Jonas Rojano-Nieto, 20, guilty on Dec. 3 of having sexual intercourse with a child 10 years or younger and committing  a lewd act with a minor under 14, according to a news release from the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.

Rojano-Nieto sodomized the girl, who was a toddler at the time, and forced her to touch his penis, according to the DA’s office. The minimum sentence in the case is 25 years to life in prison, with a maximum sentence of 33 years to life in prison, the DA’s office stated.

However, saying that 25 years to life was cruel and unusual punishment under the U.S. Constitution, the court — despite the prosecutor’s objection —  sentenced Rojano-Nieto to 10 years in prison.

“Although serious and despicable, this does not compare to a situation where a pedophilic child predator preys on an innocent child,” Superior Court Judge M. Marc Kelly said, according to a City News Service article posted by the Orange County Register. “There was no violence or callous disregard for (the victim’s) well-being.”

The assault took place on June 4, 2014, when the 3-year-old girl wandered into a garage where Rojano-Nieto was playing video games, Deputy District Attorney Whitney Bokosky said in the new service’s article. Rojano-Nieto became sexually aroused and assaulted the girl, according to Bokosky. The judge felt that under the circumstances the minimum 25 year sentence would be too harsh. “In looking at the facts of Mr. Rojano’s case, the manner in which this offense was committed is not typical of a predatory, violent brutal sodomy of a child case,” Kelly said.

“Mr. Rojano did not seek out or stalk (the victim). He was playing video games and she wandered into the garage. He inexplicably became sexually aroused but did not appear to consciously intend to harm (the victim) when he sexually assaulted her,” the wire service reported Kelly saying.

The prosecutor’s office was expected to discuss an appeal of the judge’s sentence, according to City News Service.

There’s now a petition for this judge to step down. Go here.

James O’Keefe and Project Veritas sting more academics

The complete ignorance of these people takes my breath away!

“When you watch this video, you’ll see members of California universities and colleges – who have received FIVE BILLION DOLLARS from the federal government – pledging to support ISIS, Hamas and Hezbollah.

As with most who signed our petition, Professor Bruce Burnam gave his John Hancock after our journalist said: ‘Sign, print and address to pledge our financial, our money to Islamic State and Hamas and Hezbollah and groups like that.'”

* Headline quoted from Barry McGuire “Eve of Destruction”

Are Americans getting crazier?

These are three headline stories from this morning’s Drudge Report:

  1. 100-year-old man kills wife with ax
  2. Man commits suicide after losing free buffet-for-life
  3. Celebrity dermatologist commits suicide, devastated over being mocked on Tina Fey Netflix series

Exhibit #1

MyFoxNY reports, April 7, 2015, that a 100-year-old man apparently killed his 88-year-old wife with an ax as she slept in their Elmwood Park home in northern New Jersey, then killed himself in the bathroom with a knife.

Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli says there was a “history of domestic issues” between Michael Juskin and his wife, Rosalia, but a motive for the murder-suicide remains under investigation.

Police officers found the couple in their Spruce Street home after a relative – who was not in the home – called authorities. The deaths were made public Monday.

Exhibit #2

John Noble

Henry Brean reports for the Las Vegas Review- Journal, April 6, 2015, that 53-year-old John Noble shot himself in the head at an M Resort buffet in Henderson, NV, at about 4:50 p.m. on Easter Sunday.

Henderson firefighters were already at the resort’s parking garage extinguishing a burning vehicle police now say belonged to Noble.

Many witnessed Noble’s death, and Henderson police said two people were hurt attempting to flee the area after the shot rang out. One person was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries from a fall; another person was checked out by paramedics at the scene.

The day before the Las Vegas man committed suicide, he had filled a box with his complaints against the resort and its employees and mailed it to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. In his final, angry message to the world, delivered to the newspaper Monday morning, Noble blamed his suicide on depression that set in after the Henderson resort awarded him free meals at the buffet for life then banned him from the property in 2013 for harassing some of the women working there.

“Today, I end my life due to the M Resort Spa Casino and its employees,” Noble wrote in one of two suicide notes he included with an obsessively detailed dossier on the people he blamed for destroying his life. The hand-bound stack of notes and documents stretches on for more than 270 pages and includes a table of contents, photographs and a two-hour DVD of Noble talking about his troubles.

The second-to-last page, titled “The Curse,” spells out all the harm he wishes on those he believed wronged him. Included on the list are several women who worked at the buffet, on whom Noble had showered with gifts and unwanted attention after he won meals for life there in September 2010.

Noble had attacked the resort and its employees on social media, posting photos and personal information about them, including their home addresses, right up until his death.

Exhibit #3

Fredric Brandt and Martin Short on 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt'

The Hollywood Reporter of April 6, 2015 reports that dermatologist to the stars Fredric Brandt was found dead in his Miami home on Easter Sunday morning after apparently hanging himself, according to a spokesperson for the Miami Police Department.

According to police, the 65-year-old, who had many celebrity patients including Madonna and former supermodel Stephanie Seymour, was pronounced dead on the scene just after 9 a.m.

According to Miami Herald journalist Lesley Abravanel, prior to his suicide, Brandt had been “devastated” by comparisons to the Martin Short character, Dr. Franff, on Tina Fey’s new Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

But Brandt’s publicist Jacquie Trachtenberg told the New York Post that although Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was “mean” and “bullying” and “made fun of” Brandt for “the way he looks,” which “definitely deeply hurt him . . the show was not the reason for his depression, and it was not the reason he would take his own life.” Trachtenberg said Brandt “was suffering from an illness” but would not go into details on the circumstances.

Born in Newark, New Jersey, Brandt received his medical degree from Drexel University Medical School and opened his first private dermatology practice in Miami in 1982. Brandt’s expertise with Botox and other cosmetic dermatology practices garnered him an impressive roster of clients, and in 1998, Brandt opened his second private practice, in New York City. Brandt is also the author of two skin care books — 10 Minutes 10 Years: Your Definitive Guide to a Beautiful and Youthful Appearance and Age-Less: The Definitive Guide to Botox, Lasers, Peels and Other Solutions for Flawless Skin — and served as the host of “Ask Dr. Brandt,” a SiriusXM radio show which featured beauty discussions with celebrity guests such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Kelly Ripa.

Bonus Exhibit #4:

Here’s another example of craziness.

ABC23 reports, Feb. 14, 2015, that a man and a woman who had just met in a trolley and didn’t even know each other’s name, had sex on the ground in broad daylight in front of shoppers at a strip mall in Chula Vista, California.

strangers have public sex in Chula Vista shopping mall

Chula Vista police said the couple had just met on the trolley, and decided to have sex in front of Christina’s dress shop.

Percipient witness Christy Peterson said the man and woman seemed oblivious to the fact that it was 3:30 p.m. and they were surrounded by people in a shopping strip mall. The two kept their clothes on for the first 15 minutes then the man stripped off all his clothes while she kept her skirt on.

Peterson said, “It was unbelievable. They were rolling on the ground making out and getting sexual. Her legs were in the air and the guy was on top. We were so shocked our mouths were just opened.”

Security never showed up, so Peterson called police. “We were just panicked and there were customers,” she said. “We had a brand new trainee –her first day.” The trainee was a 17-year-old girl whom they took to the back of the store. “A woman with her baby and 16-, 17-, 18-year-old girls here to shop for prom and got the shock of their life.”

Police arrived, but the two strangers — who didn’t even know each other’s names — didn’t flinch. Peterson said, “They were like cuddled up while police were giving them tickets.”

The man was taken away in handcuffs and taken to jail. The woman was given a citation. Peterson heard police say the man wasn’t even 21 and the woman was 37 years old.
