Florida Man Strikes Again

Peak Florida. At least for today.Barefoot Bay man who shot FPL solar farm arrested again for setting house on fire.

Set fire to his home (manufactured home) and shot some bullets into it. Neighbors said it appeared he was on drugs.

Raglan was also arrested in March for shooting at the FPL solar farm in Barefoot Bay. Officials say Raglan was seen shooting up the FPL sign 38 times. He then returned later and was seen shooting the security cameras and a nearby light. Authorities report $10,000 in damages in the FPL incident.

Maybe it’s something in the water.


If You’re Going to Break Into Homes, You Shouldn’t Take a Nap on the Couch

Just sayin’. Talmage homeowner shoots suspected burglar after assault with book.

A Talmage resident shot a suspected burglar early Wednesday morning after returning home from work to find his windows broken and front door open, possessions strewn about his yard, and a man he didn’t know asleep on his living room couch.

The sleeping bandit hit the guy with a large book, and ended up being shot several times with a “small caliber” handgun. The would-be bad-guy was taken to a local hospital, and then to the county jail.

Self-defense is a human-right. Even in the People’s Republic of California.

He Literally Shot Himself in the Foot

Though he had a little help. Police: Columbus man shoots himself in the foot after allegedly assaulting employee.

The store clerk told police that Curtis Thompson, 51, became upset with an employee and punched him two times. Thompson allegedly reached into his waistband to retrieve a handgun when a store employee tried to stop him from getting the weapon.

Thompson fired one shot, which struck him in his own foot.

Cops took him to the hospital and then to lockup.

In the words of Bugs Bunny, “What a maroon.”

Catch and Release?

It’s possible he was out due to “credit for time served,” but I would bet he was on parole. (Or it could be both.) Police: 1 man behind 2 carjackings, 3 burglaries, shooting in Nashville.

Stanton is a convicted burglar and car thief. He received a six-year prison sentence in July 2016. He had just gotten out of jail in August 2018.

Theft, carjacking, and a felon with a gun. Bets on whether the District Attorney turns him over to the feds for the federal gun-charge? (My bet would be no, since having the feds prosecute someone doesn’t help the DA get reelected.)

Another Self-created “Hate Crime”

I guess kids don’t read “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” anymore. Must not be PC. Or something. Racist note on K-State apartment door was a hoax.

Investigators say the student admitted making the sign and hanging it.

The school says they will handle the situation “in accordance with applicable disciplinary procedures.” Officials did not define what that entailed.

Because you need to be victim to gain victim-status. (Hat tip to Weasel Zippers.)

Voter Fraud? The Democrats Keep Telling Me There Is No Voter Fraud

But then since they seem to be perpetrating it… Former Democratic Party leader paid women in alleged Tarrant voter fraud ring, AG says.

The notice, filed Tuesday, states that Sanchez engaged in organized criminal activity in collaboration with her three co-defendants; Stuart Clegg, a former executive director for the Tarrant County Democratic Party; and others.

Hat tip to Hot Air, and they have a Twitchy Link on the subject.

The Utter Lack of Concern for a Fellow Human Being Is Distressing

What are we teaching young people that he could do this without remorse? Police: Teen Charged After Purposefully Hitting Another Teen With Car.

A Maryland teen convicted of running over a fellow high school student has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

The victim was 16. He survived. He was targeted because of stolen marijuana, that wasn’t even the driver’s. He tries to kill someone – probably with his parents’ car, since he was 17 at the time. (Any bets on whether or not he EVER had to face consquences for any of his actions?)

There is video at the link above (2nd video), because if you are going to try and murder someone, you definitely want to have a friend record it on a cellphone. The video is tough to watch, even for someone as jaded as I am.

State’s Attorney Wes Adams called it “one of the most callous displays of violence” he’d seen.

Hat tip to Wirecutter, who notes “Don’t kids think anymore?” Even if he only serves half the time, he will be in prison until he’s 31 or 32 (depending on credit for time served.)
