Angry toothless man

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s goods … and also, try not to bite thy neighbor’s penis. Jason Martin, 41, of Kent, U.K., has been found guilty of biting neighbor Richard Henderson’s penis, allegedly “like a sandwich,” during a scuffle over Martin’s loud music. Martin must have really given it his all, because the attacker has a mouth full of, uh, only one or two teeth. Henderson’s girlfriend delivered a text message to Martin regarding the volume on his Xbox, which led to a physical altercation that left Henderson in need of stitches due to a fatal combination of soft pajamas and a headlock. Martin denied the charges tooth and nail, telling prosecutors he had just grabbed “around” Mr. Henderson. “The thought of putting a man’s penis in my mouth… well, it’s not for me. Not in a million years would I do it,” he told the court. “It was just a rat bite. I just grabbed into an area. I didn’t realize at the time it was his testicles.” [Daily Mail] [Portrait of man with angry expression via Shutterstock]

Louisiana Woman Arrested After Allegedly Swimming Nude In Casino Fountain

Courtney Cox was arrested after fooling around in a fountain. Guess the opening credits for “Friends” were criminally misleading.

There’s been a Lohan arrested and it isn’t Lindsay or papa Michael! Sadly, the arrest is still all too predictable: party-hardy momager Dina Lohan got busted for a DWI  in Oyster Bay, Long Island, last night. The 50-year-old former Rockette was pulled over in her BMW for driving 77mph in a 55mph zone and turned out to be drunk. Over twice the legal limit! After complaining about being injured during the arrest, Dina took this bleary-looking mug shot and was eventually picked up at jail by someone — not Lindsay. who supposedly only found out about the arrest this morning.

Police Mistake Celebrity Impersonator Photoshoot For Armed Criminal Enterprise

Even though the Port of London Authority only requires artists to register if they plan to be filming, not merely taking photos, the organizers of a celebrity look-a-like photoshoot are saying that, in hindsight, they probably should have. Turns out people jump to conclusions when they see a bunch of black-clad people waving guns around on a speedboat.

The four impersonators were on hand to kick off the opening of Thamesjet, “London’s most extreme river experience,” with “appearances” by Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Daniel Craig. Alarmed by the appearance of a speedboat apparently containing four armed mercenaries, an anonymous member tipped off the police. Read more at The Mary Sue…

John Earl Eutzy Allegedly Masturbates, Rotates Outside Convenience Store

This isn’t your typical meat spin.

John Earl Eutzy, 37, is accused of taking himself for a spin outside a convenience store in Fort Walton Beach, Fla., the North West Florida Daily News reported. And no, it was not a Kum & Go.

Police say Eutzy was standing outside the store Tuesday when he unzipped his pants and began masturbating. When he started, he was facing the store, but then rotated his body so that he was facing the road, then turned back towards the store. According to the NWF Daily News, Eutzy “changed his position several times.” Read more at Huffington Post…

Legendary Thief Caught By Retired Archnemesis

It’s a criminal tale that reads like “Catch Me If You Can.” At its center: a thief of antique silver alleged to have burgled 500 homes over 30 years (including that of Ivanka Trump) and the retired detective who spent his career trailing him. Blane Nordahl was arrested yesterday in a small town in north Florida, thanks in part to the dogged efforts of Lonnie Mason, a former NJ detective who twice captured Nordahl and who tipped Atlanta police off to the 51-year-old after noticing a pattern of Southern burglaries via Internet reports—as many as 70 this year, reports the Athens Banner-Herald. Among them: A 1734 silver mug once sipped by George II, slipped out of an Atlanta home via a removed windowpane; and silver spoons made by Paul Revere that disappeared from a NC plantation home whose alarm system was deactivated.

experiences of women in prison

Everybody has feelings about Jenji Kohan’s “Orange is the New Black.” I have all the feelings. Since the show’s debut, we’ve tossed opinions back-and-forth about the cast of characters and the powerfully written narratives that reveal the unseen lives of American’s imprisoned women. But of the many conversations that have surfaced, the most discernible for me is of the legitimacy of Piper Kerman, the memoirist about whom the show was made.

In brief, after getting involved with an international drug dealer, Kerman (a white woman) was indicted for money laundering and spent a year in a woman’s prison – you know, the usual account of a well-to-do white woman who graduated from Smith. She subsequently wrote a best-selling memoir, which was adapted for Netflix. You can watch all of season one there now; I finished it in less than a week.

The show follows her into prison and tells the backstory of several other inmates, many of them women of color. The storyline is emotionally riveting. We’re met with race-related segregation, which mirrors the actual prison experience where racial categories and separation are often strictly enforced. Piper’s race and class privilege are checked in the first episode when it’s revealed that she “read up” on prison etiquette before she arrived. One inmate gives birth in prison and comes back to her bunk child-free, showcasing the reality that two-thirds of incarcerated women are mothers and busting the myth that women who labor in prison get to keep their babies. As a birth justice activist, I wished they’d shown the inhumane way in which many prisons shackle women during labor. Keep reading »
