You know the story can’t go well when there is a Kevorkian involved … Robbery, Kidnapping and Cutting off one’s Penis, oh My!
Four men, Ryan Anthony Kevorkian, 34, Naomi Josette Kevorkian, 33, Hossein Nayeri, 34, and Kyle Shirakawa Handley, 34, have been charged with kidnapping, robbery and torture as they cut off a California marijuana dispensary owner’s penis. Who does this, unless your name is Lorena Bobbit? However, unlike John Bobbit who had his reaatched, in a final act of depravity, police said Handley, Nayeri, and Ryan Kevorkian took the victim’s penis with them as they fled so that it could never be reattached.
Four people were charged with kidnapping a California marijuana dispensary owner, torturing him with a blowtorch and cutting off his penis during a robbery because they thought he was burying piles of cash in the desert, authorities said Friday.
Ryan Anthony Kevorkian, 34, and Naomi Josette Kevorkian, 33, were arrested Friday in Fresno, a day after the FBI arrested 34-year-old Hossein Nayeri in Prague in the Czech Republic, Orange County authorities said in a statement.
The four have been charged with kidnapping for ransom, aggravated mayhem, torture, burglary and a sentencing enhancement for inflicting great bodily injury.
Too Funny, But Very Sad as Well … Passing a Joint Scores Higher than Passing the Collection Plate in Church … “This is When You Know We’re Going to Hell”
This might be one of the funniest moments ever in ‘Family Feud’ but boy doesn’t it speak volumes of just how far our society has fallen. What happened to us? The question was, name something that gets passed around? Unbelievably there were more “weed heads” than people that go to church.
The host was looking for some saving, but passing the joint scored higher than the collection plate at church. YIKES!
- Judge to allow evidence that Trayvon Martin had trace amounts of marijuana in his system when he died
Reversal of Fortune for Zimmerman Defense Team: Florida Judge Debra Nelson Okays Testimony About Trayvon Martin’s Marijuana Usage Prior to Shooting
A reversal of fortune for the Zimmerman defense team …
Judge Debra Nelson has ruled that the George Zimmerman defense team will be allowed to present to the jury that Trayvon Martin had small amounts of marijuana in his system prior to the altercation that occurred in February 2012 that left Martin dead from a gun shot. Judge Nelson had previously granted a prosecution motion to limit testimony about the government toxicology report, but changed her ruling after testimony by the medical examiner who performed the Martin autopsy. The importance of this is that during Zimmerman’s call to a non-emergency police line, he told a dispatcher that a person he was observing, who turned out to be Martin, appeared to be “on drugs.” Guess what, it turned out to be Trayvon was.
Jurors in the George Zimmerman murder trial will be able to hear defense testimony that Trayvon Martin had small amounts of marijuana in his system at the time he was shot to death in February 2012.
In a ruling this afternoon, Judge Debra Nelson rejected a prosecution request to bar a portion of a toxicology report that revealed Martin had been smoking pot at some point prior to Zimmerman killing him with a single gunshot to the heart.
Nelson, who previously granted a prosecution motion to limit testimony about the government toxicology report, reversed herself in the wake of last Friday’s testimony by the medical examiner who performed the Martin autopsy. Zimmerman’s lawyers will apparently introduce findings from the toxicology report through the testimony of a defense forensics expert.
Many will say that all pot does is make one mellow and get the midnight munchies. However, that is the stereotype of pot use and what happens to most. Others say that the use marijuana actually get paranoid, irritable and aggressive. I have actually seen both happen. In this case I hardly think that Trayvon Martin’s pot use is the “smoking” gun, but it does give credibility to Zimmerman’s account that Martin appeared to be on drugs.
Arizona Mom Free … Yanira Maldonado Out of Mexico Prison on Trumped Up Drug Charges, Judge Dismisses Case
Yanira Maldonado is free …
After being questionably detained by Mexican authorities since May 22, 2013, Yanira Maldonado has been freed from a Mexican prison. Maldonado, the mother of seven, was arrested on suspicion of drug smuggling. However, since the inception of this nightmare she pleaded that she was innocent. Mexican police found 12 pounds of pot taped under the seat on the bus that Yanira Maldonado and her husband were on returning to the United States from a funeral. Yanira Maldonado was born in Mexico but is a naturalized U.S. citizen. From the outset the question has always been, how could they have brought the pot onto the bus and taped it under a seat without anyone seeing it? Corrupt Mexican police have been known to target and frame individuals, especially Americans, in an attempt to shake down people for money. In this case, they never dreamed that this case would get the media attention. This forced the Mexican officials hand, as if this continued, there was talks of starting a boycott of Mexican tourism. With pressure mounting, Maldonado release came hours after court officials reviewed security footage, that showed the couple boarding a commercial bus traveling from Mexico to Phoenix with only blankets, bottles of water and her purse in hand.
VIDEO – ABC News: FREED!!! Maldonado thanks God and everyone who supported her during this ordeal.
Yanira Maldonado, 42, walked out of the jail late Thursday night local time, and thanked well-wishers and Mexican officials. Maldonado told one jail official in Spanish, “Thank you for everything and the quality of person you are.”
“Is this it?” Maldonado asked officials moments after being released. “Thank you. God bless you,” she added before leaving.
Maldonado met with reporters briefly and said, “Many thanks to everyone, especially my God who let me go free, my family, my children, who with their help, I was able to survive this test,” she said
Yanira Maldonado, the Arizona mother held for more than a week in a Mexico jail on suspicion of drug smuggling, was released late Thursday after the case against her was dismissed.
The mother-of-seven, from Goodyear, Arizona, would return immediately to the United States, her lawyer Jose Francisco Benitez Paz said.
“Many thanks to everyone, especially my God who let me go free, my family, my children, who with their help, I was able to survive this test,” she told reporters.
Maldonado, 42, had been detained since May 22, when she and her husband were returning to the U.S. from a funeral. Soldiers said they had found 12 pounds of marijuana taped under her seat on a bus.
Just amazing. We have illegal immigrants coming into the United States from Mexico, breaking our laws, yet we have innocent Americans just trying to get home from Mexico and arrested illegally. Welcome to the upside down world we live in.
REEFER MADNESS: Hmm, I Thought Pot was Supposed to Mellow Them Out … Two Shot at Rally to Celebrate Marijuana in Denver
REEFER MADNESS … Isn’t pot supposed to mellow them out?
As reported at UPI, two individuals were shot at a rally in Denver’s Civic Center park on Saturday as people gathered to celebrate Marijuana in the Rocky Mountain High city at the “420 Day” festivities. Check out the smoke haze lingering above this rally in the pic from the LA Times. A man and a woman were reported shot. Police said they were looking for two suspects and were asking witnesses to come forward. Um, really? As stated at the PJ Tatler, does anyone else find the humor in this request in the wake of this crime? It’s still illegal to smoke pot in public in Colorado and the cops want people to come forward who were engaged in illegal activity? What might they be smoking? Just curious, who is in possession of a gun while they are smoking a dube? There is one thing you will never confuse, a pro-pot rally with a Tea Party one, that is for sure.
So much for pot use not causing violence. We might want to put that little myth to the way side. Peaceful, law abiding stoners, eh? Did the organizers just not have enough Doritos available for the rally go’ers. Hmm, juxtapose the pot smokers fleeing (VIDEO) the scene to the heroic folks that ran toward the individuals who were harmed during the Boston bombings during the Boston marathon after the two bomb blasts went off.
Two people were shot in Denver’s Civic Center Saturday where thousands of people gathered for marijuana-inspired “420 Day” festivities, paramedics said.
Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson said a man and woman in their 20s were both shot in the leg, The Denver Post reported. They were expected to survive, said the newspaper, which initially reported three people had been shot.
Police said they were looking for two suspects and were asking witnesses from the big crowd that scattered when the shots were fired about 5 p.m. to come forward.
“Everybody fled. That’s the problem,” Jackson said.
What makes all of this even more bizarre is Colorado’s recent attempts to make guns illegal in their peace loving state as they have passed some of the strictest gun laws in the US. At the same time, they are looking to make marijuana legal. Friends don’t let friends have guns and smoke grass. As the PJ Tatler opines, “In fact, anyone stupid enough to take a gun to such an event should have their license revoked and their head examined, not necessarily in that order.”
