Because we’re not above posting this stuff, here is Steve McNair murderer Sahel Kazemi’s DUI arrest that occurred a week before the slaying of the former NFL star. Nothing more to say really, watch it if you’re interested in this wack-job.
Colombian footballer Javier Florez shot a man dead last night for teasing him. Yea, you read that right, teasing him. The Atletico Junior de Barranquilla player was driving near his house when a group of people began taunting him about his team’s recent loss in the Colombian Apertura championship final. Apparently, since he’d been drinking, this was a bad idea. The drunken Florez then got out of his car, with a gun in hand, shot at the group, hit and killed a man with two of the shots, then left his car and ran away from the scene of the incident. Luckily (for him) he just turned himself in to the authorities.
Tragic…truly sad. What I want to know is, how has this not happened here in the states? Who do you think would be the first American athlete to kill a fan for making fun of him? Or has it been done before and I just totally missed it?
I’m thinking Ron Artest might have a good shot. Its too bad Albert Belle doesn’t play anymore cause he’d be MONEY. What do you, our readers who never comment, think?
I’m not sure whether the British are trying to one up the Chinese but if they are, it’s a noble start. There’s no way the 2012 London Olympics could even begin to approach the CGI greatness of the Beijing opening and closing ceremonies. I guess they decided to go after the world’s heart in a different way by advertising their murderers instead of hiding behind state-sponsored subterfuge.
A montage of British achievement played behind British Prime Minister Gordon Brown and London mayor Boris Johnson as they promoted the 2012 Olympics in the UK. One of the images was of Myra Hindley otherwise known as the Moors Murderer. Hindley and her man kidnapped, sexually abused, tortured and killed four children back in the 60s. She also enjoyed the works of Adolf Hitler and the Marquis de Sade in her spare time. Good times!
Brown/Johnson was reported to be mighty pissed off but they had no worries. Hindley’s image was created from children’s hand prints. That’s so sweet. I think that fact just gave myself diabetes.
A spokesman for Visit Britain said that “the inclusion of the controversial work showed that there was no ‘censorship’ in the UK but promised to withdraw it immediately”. Riiiiight. It doesn’t make sense to remove the image when Britain has had a solid line of quality murderers. Jack the Ripper must be rolling in his grave.
Many news outlets are reporting that OJ Simpson’s book “If I Did It” is going to finally be released. The book will be repackaged and republished with “additional commentary”. From the press release:
“The family and publisher have pledged to leave Simpson’s manuscript entirely intact, but they will also add key commentary.”
The family, the family of victim Ron Goldman, were granted the rights to the book last month as part of the $33.5 million in damages that OJ still owes them…and now the book is getting released. The public outcry over this book getting published in the first place was off the charts, but now it’s supposedly “ok” because they get to add their own commentary and they keep the money?? America…what a country.
A spokesman didn’t say who the publisher was, nor did they specify when the book was actually going to be coming out, instead opting for more hype by saying further details about the book are going to be released today.
I always wondered how much the price of a human soul is worth…apparently we’re all about to find out.
As we reported on Sunday, the Cricket World Cup took a turn for the depressing and macabre over the weekend. First, Pakistan lost in a shocking St. Patrick’s upset to Ireland, which led some Pakistani fans — outraged over their side’s early departure from the tournament — to riot while chanting “Death to Woolmer! Death to Inzi!,” referring to Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer and captain Inzaman ul-Haq. Then the big news hit — Bob Woolmer was found dead in his Jamaica hotel room on Sunday morning. Folks noted the sick coincidence of testosterone-fueled calls for Woolmer’s death and his actual demise, but few publicly wished to speculate that there might be a connection.
Well, the time for speculation is now. Jamaica police are now treating Woolmer’s death as suspicious — and while the cops are publicly downplaying the idea that there’s an ongoing homicide investigation, word is beginning to leak out — it looks like Woolmer may well have been murdered.
If true, this is just jawdropping. Nothing like this has ever occured in American sport — as obnoxious and obsessive as Red Sox fans are, no one tried to kill Grady Little after the 2003 ALCS. Joey Porter is an amateur, by comparison. But the scariest part is that — while there is obviously speculation that a criminally insane Pak fan is responsible — rumors are coming out that tie a possible Woolmer murder to match-fixing. After all, the Pakistan team does have a sordid history of involvement in gambling and match fixing, and Woolmer was allegedly set to discuss that underworld in a new autobiography. And there are rumors that the fix was in on the St. Patrick’s Day match.
So Woolmer was quite possibly murdered. And if he was, the culprit is probably either A) an obsessed “fan,” or — more likely — B) a gambling syndicate. I can’t decide which is more depressing. If the police investigation reaveals that Woolmer was murdered, you really have to wonder whether the show can go on. But I’m sure it would– there’s too much money involved to call it off, despite the fact that it may well be tainted by fraud and, worse, by blood.
