Listen To George Zimmerman’s Girlfriend’s 911 Call

Listen To George Zimmerman's Girlfriend's 911 Call
"You put your gun in my freaking face!"

Yesterday, George Zimmerman — the man who shot and killed unarmed teen Trayvon Martin — was arrested and charged with aggravated assault after his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, called 911 and said Zimmerman broke all of her things and pointed a shotgun in her face. Now we can actually listen to Scheibe’s 911 call and it’s disturbing to say the least. One thing that stood out to me — Scheibe says, “He knows how to play this game,” as if he’s pulled this abusive, manipulative shit before. Not shocking to the many, many people who have been screaming that this man should have been locked up a long time ago.

Side note, however: while I extend my sympathies to Scheibe and of course believe that no one deserves or should tolerate abusive behavior, WHO DECIDES TO DATE GEORGE ZIMMERMAN in the wake of the Trayvon Martin trial? I realize there are people who believe he acted in self defense, but for real though, who looks at that man and what he did and his shitty history and goes, “That dude, he’s the man for me”? The mind boggles.

“Fifty Shades” Fanfic Makes BDSM Fantasy Out Of Rihanna And Chris Brown Abuse

I have just one word for “author” J. Lola: taste. In this context, it is defined as the ability to make discerning judgments about aesthetic, artistic, and intellectual matters, and this J. Lola here has approximately none of it. Lola’s e-book, “Fifty Shades of Sin,” will run you 99 cents for your Amazon Kindle and, oh, just about an eternity in the sulfurous pit of hell. The “Fifty Shades of Grey” fan fiction (no, really?) is summarized as follows. I’ll let you connect the dots. Keep reading »

Neighbors Mistake IKEA Furniture Assembly For Domestic Dispute, Call Police

The promise of IKEA is affordable furniture that looks expensive. But those of us who have been lured in by the dream of the sparking showroom know the truth: the money you save is not worth the hours of your life lost, trying to assemble those dastardly beds/coffee tables/dressers. One tiny wrench to build an entire bookcase? It’s enough to turn you into a blathering banshee…or have the cops called to your place. Such was the case for a Swedish family who were up until the wee hours of the morning trying to put together some new furniture from IKEA. Keep reading »
