An Alleged Thong Fetish

I’m just not sure what to think about this.  I mean… did we really need to know that the guy has an “alledged” thong fetish?

If that is what helped solve the case, well great.  But how necessary was it to make that a feature of the story snippit?

To me this is just another example of how the media has lost it.

I don’t really know what else to say except…

While this is, to me, a serious problem with American media outlets… It’s also hilarious.

Oh crap, she was murdered.  It’s not funny that she did, that she was kidnapped none of that.

What funny is that the guy had a thong fetish and ultimately, that’s what got him caught.

I wonder if all those people with crazy kinks like cellophane wrapping and feet sniffing are getting a good laugh at this guy.

Thong fetish? Laughable indeed.  The fact that it is merely “alleged”, we get his full name (first, middle, last) and his job profession… Just so anyone questioning if this is the same thong lover that called out to them on the beach, can be certain that it is him.

And now back to the serious.  CNN… do you really think it was you that caught this guy?  Give the police some more credit, it wasn’t just the tip line that helped.

Facebook, Yucky Advertising!

Gay With Genital Warts?Like seriously, Facebook, what’s going on here?

Yes, I’m gay but no I don’t have the Human Papillomavirus (HPV).  In fact, I don’t know anyone that does.

Never the less, “Gay With Genital Warts?”?  Does this medication not work for “Breeder With Genital Warts?”

Blech.  Whatever.  Total FAIL here.  Which is why I love the thumbs up/down option on advertisements.

This was a big ol’ thumbs down and why?  Because it didn’t pertain to me.  If this is what targeted advertising is coming to, count me out!

Now back to some Kings of Leon – Sex on Fire… hmmm, that song title is ironic…

UPDATE:

I’d only been away from my blog for a few minutes before another stupid Facebook advertisement showed up.  This advert was for a law office that, seems to at least, specialize in DWI/MIP arrests/tickets.

First off, advertising to college kids that there are people out there to get them out of their DWI/MIP offenses is awful.  DWI should require jail time.  You are lucky when you don’t wreck your car and kill.  DWI has no excuse. Period.  I’m sure we all have done it at one point and we were all so very stupid to do it.Mid-Mo DWI_MIP Lawyers

I have had a roommate who was notorious in his drinking and driving, and it ended up with him messing up the car he was driving more than once.  He is lucky there were no other people involved, who knows how that could have changed his life?

Maybe it was working in the emergency room of my university’s hospital that has me like this.

I will never forget the Sunday morning when I had three patients come into the ER via life flight helicopter.

This family was on their way to church when a drunk driver hit their car head on.  Killing one child instantly, severely injuring another and her father.  I remember seeing the father crying before his daughter’s bed after he was released from the hospital he was flown to and made it to our ER.

I learned that just a few months earlier he had lost his wife, their mother to cancer.  And now he had lost one child with the other one slipping further away every moment.

The drunk driver was ok.  He should be in jail for life, for ending two children’s life.  For destroying what was left of a father and his fractured family.

I think I’m done now.

Disgusting

Former Columbia Police Officer Steven Rios, who was convicted in May 2005 for the murder of MU student Jesse Valencia, will receive a new trial.

The Western District of the Missouri Court of Appeals announced its reversal of Rios’ conviction Friday morning. Beth Riggert, spokesperson for the high court, said two hearsay statements entered into evidence during the original trial were used to prove motive. The court of appeals decided that those statements both made by Valencia  were not covered by any of the exceptions that allow hearsay to be used as evidence.

Rios was accused of slitting the throat of 23-year-old Valencia in the East Campus neighborhood on June 5, 2004. He was charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action.

A Clay County jury found him guilty after nine hours of deliberation. Boone County Circuit Judge Ellen Roper sentenced Rios to life without parole. He appealed in July 2005. The appeals court heard oral arguments one year later.

Special Prosecutor Morley Swingle tried the case because of the relationship between the Boone County prosecutor’s office and Rios in his capacity as a police officer. Swingle could not be reached this morning about the appeals court’s decision.
