Again, I’m going to keep trying to do this a few times a week, and see where it takes me.
In 2009, Michael Brewer spent more than two months in the hospital when three teens set him on fire for not paying them $40.
Matthew Bent, 17, was originally charged with second-degree attempted murder, but has been found guilty of a lesser charge, aggravated battery. He faces a sentence of four years and five months to 15 years.
The three teens, Matthew Bent, Denver Jarvis and Jesus Mendez, were accused of pouring alcohol over Michael Brewer and setting him on fire. Brewer suffered burns over 65% of his body and was hospitalized for over two months.
Jarvis and Mendez pleaded no contest and are serving their time in prison. Both testified during Bent’s trial, however, Bent did not take the stand, and his defense did not call any witnesses.
Detectives say Bent demanded the $40 he said Brewer owed him, and when he didn’t pay, Bent stole Brewer’s father’s bicycle. Brewer then went to police, who arrested the teen. When Bent was released the next day, the three found Brewer, surrounded him, and witnesses say that his attackers called him a “snitch.”
Jarvis then poured alcohol over Brewer, and Mendez used a lighter to start the fire, as Bent encouraged the attack.
Mendez has since admitted to setting him on fire, and that he made a “bad decision,” (Gee, ya think?) according to an arrest transcript.
Brewer ran 100 yards to an apartment complex pool, where he dove in.
The city of New Orleans has reported an elevated number of mosquitoes this year, and so have many cities in northeast Illinois.
In the Northeast, a mild winter and a mellow spring with warm and wet conditions has added up to the perfect storm, creating a flourishing bug population.
Mike Deutsch, an urban Entomologist, with Arrow Exterminating Company says, “We are bracing for a major bug war, if you will. It all depends on how the summer is. If the summer is really hot, and there is a lot of moisture like there has been the last month or so, the population of insects is going to be out of control.”
There are certain species entomologists and exterminators are looking for, the Asian tiger mosquito for one, a very aggressive version of the mosquito that bites during the day. Many bugs have arrived far ahead of schedule.
One of the biggest concerns of having extra mosquitoes around this summer is the possible increase in numbers of West Nile Virus cases. Last year 11 people in the New York City area contracted the virus, and two of them died.
You can take an active role in eliminating bug’s breeding grounds, which normally involves water. Get rid of any buckets, birdbaths, and anything that has water inside it.
Now we’ve got some “EWWWWWWWWWWWW WHAT THE FUCK” news…
Octomom has her own porno, and it’s available for purchase TODAY!
In some scenes she’s touching herself and attempted to pose in a sexy manner while surrounded by baby clothes, and in others she’s ironing while dressed in lingerie and appears topless.
“The shoot was such a learning experience for me in so many ways. I don’t think I could have asked for a better crew to work with. They were so patient and willing to teach me,” she explained. “They made me look so glamorous, and for the first time in my life, I felt beautiful and sexy. I’m very excited for it to come out!”
Yeah, nothing says sexy like a cavernous vagina.
In some not-so-nasty news, we’ve got Black Ops coming out for the PSP Vita! Yaaaaaay!
Which would be great ~*~EXCEPT~*~… Sony consoles suck…. I have a PSP, it’s still working, amazingly, since I blew through three before that, and I barely used them.
I also had a PS2 which I didn’t use for about ten months, then when I went to hook it up to play one of my games, *BAM*, it’s dead. Won’t even turn on. So I’m just a bit miffed at Sony for their crappy products..
But for all you fanboys out there, Call of Duty is now portable! You can ignore your teachers in style, and say “Fuck you” to your parents (Who are paying your tuition) with this great new game, which will be released on December 31, 2012.
In some sad television news, Fringe will be having its fifth and final season this fall.
It seems as if Fox has just been dying to cancel it these past two years. So they shake things up, and change it to a Friday in hopes of killing it off.
They’re trying to do the same with So You Think You Can Dance, by eliminating the results shows. Upsetting, but hey, it’s Fox, every time there’s a good show that brings in money, and ratings, gotta ditch it!
And lastly, not sure why this is news, but Mcdonald’s makes fake burgers in their ads!
AAAAAAH noooooo, this can’t be, this is false advertising, aaaaaaugh…
Fast food chains, restaurants, and the fashion industry have all been doing this for years, people. This is not new news, but in case you’re wondering what the process is like, the link is down below the fold, as are all the other links to things I’ve talked about today.
