Covering federal courts, I've written stories about child pornography, the sex trafficking of minors and the tactics of brutal Mexican drug gangs, but this is, hands down, the most disturbing criminal complaint I have ever read.
The mom was so angry at her six year old child that she grabbed him by the scrotum (gulp) and pulled it as hard as she could (I can't read this without crossing my legs and quivering).
She then did what any normal mother would do and repaired the "sack" with superglue.
I think we have a candidate for mother of the year.
Guys make fun of me for carrying a "man purse" (man sack?) for work but I'm packing a staggering amount of necessary stuff!
1) the sack (not a purse!)
3) patch cord to plug recorder into multi-boxes for press conferences
4) cigarette lighter usb power adaptor
5) pocket recorder
6) ifb, because you never want to use the same ear piece that others have used!
7) extra memory card
8) makeup, for tv
9) more makeup. And yes, you need makeup.
10) patch cable for pocket recorder
11) powerstick to recharge iPhone 5 (phone, not shown)
12) moleskin for notes
13) business cards
16) nail clippers
17) old iphone, used as backup recorder, stopwatch, self defense
18) earplugs. I make my living being able to hear. You bet I protect it!
The Texas Department of Transportation is out today with a list of the drivers who owe the most in unpaid tolls.
The top toll violator, the lucky Ronny Williams, is an electrician in the Austin Suburb of Pflugerville. I tried to call him to get his side of the story. At first the phone just rang. Later, the line was disconnected. Apparently, I'm not the only one trying to find him.
Lets do some math, shall we?
a) TxDot say he had 14,358 unpaid toll transactions.
b) A toll transaction is when you go though one of the checkpoints on a toll road
c) in central texas (sh130, sh45, loop 1, 183a and 290e) there are a total of 29 toll booths.
d) there are 365 days in a year.
So, 14,358 toll transactions divided by 365 days in a year means he hit an average of 39 toll booths a day, every single day, Christmas and Thanksgiving, right? Is this guy doing any work during the day or is constantly driving to hit that number of toll booths.
The numbers seem.... well.... impossible.
