One of my favorite films is Guy Ritchie’s Snatch. In it, the mob boss rids himself of his enemies by feeding them to pigs.
Sometimes, life imitates art.
A group of mafia assassins from southern Italy beat a rival with a spade and fed him alive to pigs, according to police. Francesco Raccosta disappeared in March 2012 but his body has never been found.
Detectives arrested one of Raccosta’s suspected murderers after they allegedly recorded him bragging about the hit after tapping his telephone during Operazione Erinni, an anti-mafia campaign in southern Italy during which 20 suspects were arrested.
Pepe is chillingly heard saying of Raccosta:”It was so satisfying hearing him scream …mamma mia he could scream…I didn’t see a ******* thing left…people say sometimes they leave something…in the end there was nothing left… those pigs could certainly eat…”
Eww. Remind me to steer clear of any Italian bacon.
Onr of the benefits of living in Philadelphia is its close proximity to Amish Country.
You can find some of the greatest edibles on Earth in Lancaster County, and some people – myself included – would say the food is to die for…
A horse pulling an Amish buggy was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting Sunday night in rural Lancaster County.
Five passengers were riding in the vehicle as it traveled northbound on North Ronks Rd. in East Lampeter Township, about a quarter mile from Route 30. At about 9 p.m., they heard a loud noise as a car passed by.
At their destination, a farm in Ronks, one of the passengers discovered the horse was bleeding from its mouth. A bullet wound stained the horse’s torso.
The target has been identified as Tupac Hochstedler; an aspiring Amish rapper.
Meet Manhattan’s Brittany Lahm. Brittany has fantastic breasts, but do not approach, touch, or look directly at them; they’ve already killed one man.
A young driver who crashed her car into a rail and killed her friend after he pulled her bikini top string as she drove at 65mph has been cleared. Brittany Lahm, 24. crashed on the Thruway, New York, in July 2008, killing Brandon Berman, 19, and injuring several other passengers.
Moments before Mr Berman had playfully untied her bathing suit top as they returned home from a day at Jersey Shore. Miss Lahm took her hands off the wheel to cover up and the Lexus veered off course and struck the guardrail, flipped multiple times in the air, before coming to rest on its roof in the middle of the southbound lanes.
Mr Berman was partially ejected and suffered massive head trauma. He was pronounced dead at Nyack Hospital.
As a result of this incident, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has banned Lahm’s sweater puppies.
Meet Charles “Chuck” Barry. Chuck really likes his donuts – he just doesn’t like paying full price for them. So, Chuck decided to give himself a six bullet discount.
Pasco County Sheriff Deputies arrested a man last week after he allegedly attempted a daring heist. Deputies say 48-year-old Charles “Chuck” Barry went to the drive-thru of a Trinity Dunkin’ Donuts, identified himself as law enforcement and then proceeded to demand a discount for donuts.
Smelling a rat, the clerk refused, drawing ire from the hungry impersonator who allegedly held up a gun — still in its holster — and said, “See, I’m a cop!”
First of all, a single Dunkin Donuts doughnut sells for about 59 cents, so stop being a cheap bastard! You could probably find 59 cents wedged inside your fat rolls.
Second, I hate to ruin the fantasy, but police officers rarely – if ever – get discounts on food, and we would NEVER get discounts while out of uniform. In Philadelphia, Dunkin Donuts generally does not give discounts to officers, although there are probably a few stores here and there which do. Chuck’s entire premise is faulty from the start.
Finally, even if a business granted discounts, what kind of mental defective would serve a man who “proves” he’s a cop by showing a holstered pistol?
Chuck Barry is giving fake police officers and misspelled 50′s rockers a bad name.
Yeah, that’s right, I’m opening a post with a song by Christopher Cross. Wanna fight about it?
Meet Larysa Moskalenko. Larysa is a former Olympic medalist who specialized in sailing… and grand theft toddler.
An Olympic medalist has been arrested as part of a ‘child kidnap gang’ that plotted to steal children involved in custody battles. Ukrainian Olympic sailing champion Larysa Moskalenko was held by police in Italy.
Armed with weapons, tasers and pepper spray, it is alleged they launched risky operations to take the children. It is alleged her part in the syndicate was to hire out powerful speed boats which were used to take children from countries in North Africa and bring them to Italy, from where they were reunited with their parents in other European countries.
She’s obviously a very dangerous felon… who I’d bang like a screen door in a hurricane.
Most of the time when you hear the phrase “sorority girl accident” either beer, urine, or an abortion is involved. Not this time.
Up to 32 sorority girls were injured last night when a tractor plowed into their school bus as they traveled to a party in Delaware. State police say the crash occurred just after 10pm last night at an intersection in Bear, south of Wilmington, when the tractor trailer failed to stop for a red light and hit the bus causing it to roll over.
The girls, who were all aged between 18 and 22 and hailed from the University of Delaware’s Phi Sigma Sigma Sorority, were heading to a mixer event at Aqua Sol nightclub at the town’s Summit North Marina, said witnesses.
State police say nine passengers were taken to the hospital and several others were driven to area medical centers. Authorities say none of the injuries were considered life threatening.
A bus full of sorority girls… and the accident couldn’t happen in my division?
In an epic example of irony, a Chicago area man murdered his wife and killed himself after trying out for the Family Feud game show. Damned shame, since Marcus T. Crosby is apparently a specialist in the area.
Hours after trying out for a spot on the “Family Feud” game show, a Joliet Central High School security guard shot his new wife to death early Monday and then turned the gun on himself, sources said.
Marcus T. Crosby and family members tried out for the popular game show on Sunday, but his wife, Kearra Hosey did not, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation. A person at the couple’s home, who did not want to be identified, confirmed the tryout.
If Crosby murdered his wife over missing a game show tryout, imagine what would he have done if Richard Dawson tried to kiss him.
A Boulder County Colorado police officer decided to have some fun with a Black Hawk pilot last week. It’s a prank I would have tried – had I been smart enough to think of it.
It turns out one Colorado cop has quite the sense of humor. The Black [H]awk [helicopter] was part of the Army National Guard units called in to help rescue stranded victims of the Colorado flood. He had to park in the street, and he got ticketed for “facing the wrong way” and “parking in a no parking zone.”
[A] commenter claiming police experience pointed out that there “no court date” and no “section codes for violations” — so it had to be a practical joke. (H/T – Smite)
It’s like we always say to the new officers; if you can’t have fun on this job, you’re doing it wrong.
The parents of a young shooting victim aren’t doctors… and they also didn’t sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
A Northern California couple didn’t report that their 10-year-old daughter had been shot for more than five hours because they thought she was bleeding menstrual blood, police said.
The girl was sleeping in her Hayward home around 2 a.m. Thursday when a stray bullet from drive-by shooting wounded her in the buttocks, Sgt. Mark Ormsby said. When the girl woke up in pain and had blood in her underwear, her parents thought she had started her period. They also found no indication she had been shot when they took her to the bathroom.
So. Much. FAIL. To quote Bullet-Tooth Tony from Snatch, “Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.”
And by that I mean the results are funny, but not “Ha ha” funny.
The recent ruling to reform the New York Police Department’s controversial “stop-and-frisk” tactic has already led to a sharp rise in shootings, new figures reveal.
In the month after the policy was ruled unconstitutional shootings spiked nearly 13 per cent while gun seizures fell almost a fifth, the figures show. In the 28 days up to September 8 there were 140 shootings across the city, compared with 124 over the same period last year, according to NYPD statistics.
The shocking rise in gun crime has emerged days after the federal judge who ordered an overhaul of the stop-and-frisk strategy refused to delay it pending an appeal by the city. U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin said such a delay would send “precisely the wrong signal.”
I agree. More bodies in the streets would send a much better signal.
