[News] Chuck’s Links for Friday, April 24, 2009

Shane Foster, 21, one of those Ku Klux Klan members who practices the notion that Aryans like him are superior, was ruled by a Louisiana judge as not bright enough to be tried for taking part in the murder of a woman who had tried to back out of the Klan. Times-Picayune

News of this lawsuit emanated from a German newspaper, so, y'know, be careful, but on the other hand, it passed the authentication test of a named, mainstream Yahoo UK editor, so I'm going with it (in one of my rare probable copyright violations): A court in Stuttgart is now hearing a lawsuit by a sterile husband, Demetrius Soupolos, who (with permission of his former-beauty-queen wife) hired a neighbor to impregnate her the old-fashioned way for €2k, and he gave it his all, um, 72 times over the next 6 months, but to no avail. The neighbor, confused, had his own sperm analyzed and of course found out he's sterile, too. Now Soupolos wants his money back. The neighbor said he had tried as hard as he could and that no guarantee was given, and besides, the neighbor's wife had to confess that he wasn't the father of "their" two kids, either. Yahoo UK-Ireland

You had a bad day, maybe, but not as bad as the "pregnant woman running from bear hit by car" in Colorado Springs. She's in stable condition; the bear was tranquilized; the driver 's nowhere to be found. Denver Post

Madlyn Primoff, 45, got a lot of press this week for having tossed her misbehaving kids, age 10 and 12, out of the car in downtown White Plains, N.Y. (i.e., actually carrying out what, to 50 million parents, is only a bluff). The older girl came back, but Madlyn had to pick up the other at the police station (and was promptly arrested). Turns out she's a big-shot NYC lawyer. New York Post [with mugshot, looking like you wouldn't mind your lawyer looking, but maybe not your mother]

The F State, though, is full of hardcore parents, such as Natasha Brinkley, 43, who was arrested in Silver Springs Shores, Fla., for menacing her children with a butcher knife, throwing a glass table at them, and calling them the MF word. WFTV (Orlando)

Prank or serious issue? A 17-yr-old boy was charged with disorderly conduct during class as Pequea Valley High School, Leacock Twp, Pa. (unzipping in class and masturbating while calling out students' names). No details yet. Patriot-News (Harrisburg)

[Jury Duty] Well, not really. She's kinda guilty. Nicole Marty, 25, charged with possession of a controlled substance and crashing her car with her 9yr-old daughter inside. The Smoking Gun

Jury Duty - Nothing screams angelic innocence better then flipping the double bird. Nice.

Shane Foster, 21, not ONLY a mentally deficient member of the Ku Klux Klan, but ALSO the son of the Imperial Wizard. He's the scion. The great white hope! The...HEY! Don't let him use that fork, he'll hurt himself again!!!

Shane Foster - A retarded Klansman? Say it ain't so. I would never have guessed.

German Neighbour - Caveat emptor. Maybe you should have your neighbour's ammo analyzed before you ask him to come down to the firing range.

Unbearable Day - Some days, you should just stay in bed.

Madlyn "Mother Chucker" Primoff - She may just have set a precedent. Now parents who are tempted to do the same will be able to gauge how badly they want to dump their kids against the outcome of this court case.

Natasha "the Mom" Brinkley - She threw a glass table at them? That's, uh, pretty melodramatic, don't you think?

Jury Duty - Hmm, it's a tough one. I'm just not sure on this one. If only there were some kind of clue to her behaviour and state of mind.

Ku Klux Klan
The amazing thing about this story is that the guy is even going to trail. In the not-so-distant past this would never have happened since all involved would have been fellow clan members.

On a different note, it warms the very cockles of my heart that Louisiana has made it on WU 2 days in a row. I was starting to think that the holy WU trinity didn't love us down here.

kkktard- i though ignorance of the law was no excuse. too bad it's not texas, they fry retarded people on a regular basis. anyone who belongs to the klan gets no pc polite references from me.

sterile- ever heard of a sperm bank genius? 72 times classifies as an affair to me. maybe they should get the guy the neighbor's wife used as her personal sperm donor, appearently HE'S not shooting blanks.

pregnant woman- gee she should pick up a few lottery tickets since she's sooo lucky.

get out and walk- i wish i had a dime for every time i said that. never did it though. just goes to show you don't have to be smart to practice law.(i guess that's why they call it practicing)

f state again- she should have taken her mf-ing meds!

17- maybe it was sex ed. i bet if all the girl's in the class would have started laughing he'd have put it away. guess his name is smilin' jack!

jury duty- set that lovely, sensitive young lady free! GUILTY actually i feel bad for the 9 year old kid, what a great example she's being presented with.

Jury Duty - Anyone else think her nose was formed out of playdough by a three year old and just stuck on her face as an after-thought? Maybe it was just me.
