Fort Stewart soldier, Staff Sgt. Rashad Valmont faces life in prison as a result of him murdering his superior because he was dehydrated and delirious from a crash diet. Apparently, the soldier was overweight by military standards and was forced to lose weight rather quickly.
Valmont’s attorney is using his hunger and dehydration as a defense for the soldier murdering Master Sgt. Pedro Mercado. It appears that Valmont’s aggression against Master Sgt. Mercado stemmed from Mercado rejecting Sgt. Valmont’s vacation request last summer. I’m not sure where Valmont was trying to go on vacation, but the rejection prompted him to shoot his superior six times.
During his current trial, a military psychiatrist testified that the soldier was delirious from dehydration among other things as a result of his fasting.
If only we could turn back the hands of time, I’m sure that soldier would have eaten and Master Sgt Mercado would have approved that vacation!
While most teens are enjoying a summer break of late night video gaming while occasionally reading a book at their parents urging, 17-year-old Tyler Hadley has taken his summer activities to a level I’m sure no one could fathom. This past weekend the Fla. Teen decided to murder his parents and then host a house party he arranged via Facebook. What in the Wild World of Puberty is going on?
The troubled teen apparently allowed his aggression to go too far and based on police reports decided to beat his parents to death with a hammer. After the Port St. Lucie police were dispatched to the home during the wee hours of Sunday morning via a tip that the teen had murdered his parents, Hadley greeted them a bit nervous and attempted to mislead the police by saying his parents were out-of-town. Shortly afterwards, the police searched the home and found the bodies of his parents in their master bedroom.
I’m not sure what drove this young man to commit such a heinous crime. However, I pray that he gets the help he needs, mental or otherwise, as well as justice is properly served for Mr. and Mrs. Hadley.
Unfortunately, it looks like another teen prank has gone awry and a teenage girl has died as a result of it.
Takeimi Rao of Santa Rosa, California and three of her friends decided to spice things up at their sleep over and drink soda spiked with vodka. Hours later two of the girls were vomiting and Takeimi was found dead by her mother. Initially, the two girls vomiting were thought to have food poisoning but according to the police reports, it was later discovered that alcohol spiked soda was the result of the horrific accident.
Sadly, Rao, who was initially to start ninth grade this fall, is no longer enjoying her life due to a prank gone horribly wrong. Please let this be a lesson to youngsters, nothing good comes out of making bad decisions!
Somewhere in Indianapolis, Tyell Morton is trying to figure out how he is facing an 8-year felony prison sentence for just trying to be silly on the last day of school.
Engaging in what is being called a ‘senior prank gone awry’ by the Associated Press, Tyell caused quite a commotion at Rushville Consolidated High School on May 31, 2011. A bomb squad was called out, some K-9 dogs and an intense police swat team took over the entire school after a blow-up sex doll was discovered in the bathroom. The school officials were simply reacting with standard procedure of an unidentified package being delivered to a public school facility. I think we have the Columbine incident to thank for the Calvary being called.
After the situation was calmed, Mr. Tyell Morton was arrested and charged with several offenses including institutional criminal mischief which is a felony that carries the potential of two to eight years in prison. I repeat the boy could get a maximum of eight years in prison and not be allowed to vote due to his felony record as a result of a prank gone wrong.
Being a parent, I always advise my teenager that it is very vital to make good choices no matter what. The moment one good person makes a bad choice, they may end up dealing with a decision that ultimately determines the fate of their life. But, we have a judicial system that has acquitted Casey Anthony of murdering her only child after she withheld the whereabouts of her daughter 31 days after her disappearance. Not to mention, Casey will be released from prison in less than a week after serving a little over 3 years for lying to the police. Now, I’m no legal expert, but something about this situation just ain’t right!
I know cases are different and evidence must be presented to remove all reasonable doubt…BUT C’MON SON!!!!
Lesson to you youngsters, leave your blow up dolls at home unless it’s show and tell!
Take the poll and/or leave a comment and let me know what you think about this bizarre case.
So, let me get this right, you rob a bank go to jail and now you’re mad because the jail won’t get you your hustlers and playboy magazines? Oh OK!
Apparently Mr. Kyle Richards of the Michigan Macomb County Jail feel that his rights are being violated because he’s not getting his pornography request met. As reported in Huffington Post.com, Richards says denying his request for erotic material subjects him to a “poor standard of living” and “sexual and sensory deprivation.” Did I tell y’all the brother submitted his lawsuit in a handwritten note? Jesus be some KY Jelly and realistic wet dream!
I’m all about living in the land of the free and home of the brave. But I’m not sure when Americans who commit crimes feel that they deserve the same privileges of those who DON’T commit them. You’re in jail homie! You better concentrate on not dropping the soap before you end up in your version of a porno that you may not enjoy!!!!
