Oh How Sad, Michael Dunn Is Going To Prison For Life. Wait, Did We Say ‘Sad’?

Lucia McBath & her son, Jordan Davis (1995-20120
Michael Dunn, convicted last month for the murder of 17-year-old Jordan Davis, was sentenced today to life in prison with no chance of parole. Since prosecutors did not seek the death penalty in Dunn’s first-degree murder trial, the conviction carried a mandatory life sentence. Judge Russell Healey told the would be ground-stander: Read more on Oh How Sad, Michael Dunn Is Going To Prison For Life. Wait, Did We Say ‘Sad’?…

Looks Like It’s Time To Execute Another Mentally Ill Guy, For Justice

Not sure this makes a point about the story -- mostly just wanted to execute a Lego figure.
We know you’re all sick of Ebola and ISIS, so here’s a pick-me-up: Texas is fixing to execute Scott Pannetti, who is so disconnected from reality that he buried a sofa and other furniture in his yard because he was sure the Devil was in it. He murdered his in-laws in 1992, in front of his estranged wife and infant daughter — his wife had left him two years earlier, after he threatened her with a cavalry sword. He turned himself in to the police and explained the killing was the fault of “Sarge,” one of the people in his hallucinations. By the time of the killings, Panetti had been “diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, delusions, auditory hallucinations, and manic depression, and had been hospitalized 14 times.” Read more on Looks Like It’s Time To Execute Another Mentally Ill Guy, For Justice…

Ebony And Irony
Oh, golly, it’s time for another Derp Roundup, a chance for us to bring you some of the stories that were just too damned stupid to ignore altogether, but which didn’t quite merit a post of their own.

Ferguson Grand Jury About As Fair And Impartial As You’d Expect

We don't even care that this came from an animal liberation blog. That's one funny sign
Just in case you were worried that the investigation into the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, wasn’t a great enough fuckpile, here’s one extra little nugget to increase everyone’s confidence that justice will be done: the Washington Post reports that the Grand Jury hearing the case against Officer Darren Wilson is being investigated for possible juror misconduct. Ed Magee, spokesman for St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch, confirmed that the prosecutor’s office is “looking into” reports that one of the jurors has been talking to friends about the case, which is a definite no-no and could require that an entirely new grand jury be empaneled. It’s very sad, considering how much McCulloch has done to inspire confidence in the community already. Read more on Ferguson Grand Jury About As Fair And Impartial As You’d Expect…

Florida Jury Finally Finds Murderer Michael Dunn Guilty Of Murder

The guy on the right? He's the murderer
In November 2012, racist scumbag Michael Dunn killed 17-year-old Jordan Davis. Dunn claimed that Davis and his friends were rudely (read: blackly) playing their music too loud, and when he ever-so-politely asked them to turn it down a bit, the poor defenseless Dunn, who was armed, was scared for his life because BLACK and also he saw a gun, except that he did not because the only gun was his. Still, being afraid for his life because BLACK, he fired off 10 rounds into the SUV of unarmed teenagers, killing Davis, and then going to a motel with his girlfriend to eat some pizza, as one does after killing a black teenager. If one is a thug and a murderer. Read more on Florida Jury Finally Finds Murderer Michael Dunn Guilty Of Murder…

Oklahoma Jihad Update: Please Be More Afraid. You Are Not Afraid Enough Yet

A sneakiy new tactic to blend in
On Friday, we brought you the story of a horrific murder committed in Moore, Oklahoma. Alton Nolen, a man who was fired from his job at a produce processing plant, killed one woman and injured a second, and now the wingnuttosphere is in a tizzy about jihad in Oklahoma, because Nolen was said by co-workers to have tried, unsuccessfully, to convince others to convert. Therefore, in the minds of top thinkers like Pam Geller and Jim Hoft, the Stupidest Man on the Internet, Nolen’s rampage is the inevitable result of Islam, and anyone who thinks this was merely “workplace violence” is willfully blind to the reality of the Muslim Threat. See, for instance this bit of screaming from Hoft today: Read more on Oklahoma Jihad Update: Please Be More Afraid. You Are Not Afraid Enough Yet…

Awesome Class Will Teach Police How To ‘Win The Media’ When Cops Shoot People

Thanks to that training, I can shoot anyone I want and get away with it!
We love a good professional development class — it’s a great chance to brush up on skills, keep up with new developments in your field, and shake out the cobwebs in your day-to-day routine! Also, something something networking, something something “best practices.” And looky here, the St. Louis County and Municipal Police Academy is offering a class aimed at improving police communication after an officer-involved shooting! Those guys are EXPERTS at “winning the media,” after all — they managed to take a press conference about releasing the name of a killer cop and use it to re-image Michael Brown as a cold-blooded gangster thug! The flyer for the class notes that the “shooting death of a black teenager by a white police officer on August 9th in Ferguson, Missouri and the events that followed were tragic” and then explains that “this fast-paced class is jam-packed with the essential strategies and tactics, skills and techniques that will help you WIN WITH THE MEDIA!” Read more on Awesome Class Will Teach Police How To ‘Win The Media’ When Cops Shoot People…

Alabama Governor Consoles Family Of Murdered 8-Year-Old Black Girl By Suggesting Their Dysfunction Killed Her (Updated)

May this face haunt Robert Benchley's dreams forever
UPDATE: A spokeswoman for Gov. Bentley has offered an explanation; see end of post. Hiawayi Robinson, of Pritchard, Alabama, a small city on the north side of Mobile, was looking forward to turning nine years old next week. On Tuesday, Hiawayi had talked to her father on the phone about what she wanted for her birthday (a laptop computer) and told him that she was going downstairs to see if her cousin was home. She never came back. Read more on Alabama Governor Consoles Family Of Murdered 8-Year-Old Black Girl By Suggesting Their Dysfunction Killed Her (Updated)…

Michael Brown: Non-Felonious Monster, Still Needed To Die

Pet Shop Boys have the answer
As any fool knows, it’s vitally important to know whether Michael Brown’s death was justified by anything he ever did long before Officer Darren Wilson told him to stop walking in the middle of the street, which is why, in the name of Justice, America absolutely needs to have his juvenile court records released. And so today, in a hearing on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s request for the release of Brown’s records, court officials said that Brown had no Class A or Class B felony convictions in juvenile court and was not the subject of any active cases when he died: Read more on Michael Brown: Non-Felonious Monster, Still Needed To Die…

John McCain Being A Big RINO Lib Squish Again, Just Because Arizona Tortured A Guy, Whatever

Hey look! ‘Grumpy dickwad’ John McCain took a break and decided to let ‘maverick-y sane-sounding’ John McCain come out and talk. And he said some things about that botched execution in Arizona, including telling Politico that it was “torture.” Does this mean that Gov. Brewer will get an extended vacation to Gitmo? Hot damn, we actually agree with the senior, very very senior Senator from Arizona! Something something doddering blind squirrel finds a walnut.

Heavy Metal Christian Band Was Actually Full Of Lying Atheists

A Christian “news” site reported this week that an actual publication (Alternative Press) reported last month that the lead singer of a shitty metalcore band not only tried to have his wife killed last year, but also lied about being Christian. Oh, Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying, how could you? (We mean about the atheism, which is the real tragedy here, obviously.) Read more on Heavy Metal Christian Band Was Actually Full Of Lying Atheists…

A Children’s Treasury Of Stupid Bloviating About The Isla Vista Murders

We’ve now entered the exciting “place blame on people you don’t like” phase of the coverage of the shootings in Isla Vista last Friday, where bloggers, teevee news panelists, and other luminaries present their instant diagnoses of the culture-war issues truly to blame for the actions of a disturbed person with a several guns and a carload of ammunition. Here are just a few of the stupidest explanations of What It All Means (and yes, we have a feeling this will be Part One of many).

Sportsball Player Aaron Hernandez Just Can’t Stop Allegedly Murdering People

Aaron Hernandez looks like a really good football sportsball star, with many awards that are nothing but letters (SEC! AFC! BCS!) that show he was well-regarded in college and his career with the New England Patriots. However, it seems that what Aaron Hernandez is really the best at is (ALLEGEDLY) murdering people.
