So, coming out of the land of 10,000 lakes there has been a very odd, strange, and downright twisted case about a Minnesota mom reacting in a very disturbing way after giving birth. A Minneapolis woman by the name of Kristin Bennett gave birth to a baby boy in her bathroom and of course by herself apparently. It wasn’t a miscarriage nor cold-blooded murder, but rather a seemingly inadvertent freak accident of some kind. Feeling sick she rushed to the bathroom and ultimately gave birth to the child in the toilet while never knowing she was pregnant to begin with (how can you not know you’re pregnant?). Here are some more specifics:
Court documents say Winona police first heard of the boy’s death on April 10, when they responded to the Women’s Health Clinic on a call of a dead baby brought by its mother. When police met with the clinic’s staff, they told authorities Kristin Bennett came with her mother and the baby to the clinic.
Staff said Bennett told her mother she delivered the baby herself into her apartment’s toilet bowl. She reportedly said she heard the baby cry once and then stop. She rubbed the boy’s back, trying to get him to breathe. It was not successful.
Here’s where things get worse:
After she realized the baby was dead, Bennett wrapped him in a sweatshirt, put him in a plastic container and kept the boy in her room.
Bennett brought the boy to her mother’s home on April 9, the day before they went to the clinic. It is not clear how long the boy’s body stayed in his mother’s room.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office conducted an autopsy on the boy. A cause of death has not yet been determined.
Sometimes I really can’t fathom the things I find.
All around crazy b—— and the so called “Merchant of Death”, Viktor Bout (45) was sentenced to 25 years by a federal judge in a New York courtroom as of this Thursday. The man who rose to notoriety by selling everything from pellet guns to surface-air missiles. Lovely fellow I must say. A happy individual who enjoys slow walks on the beach and cuddling up with a good episode of the Teletubbies at the end of his day. Fun fact, the movie Lord of War is supposed to be loosely about all his shenanigans in various African countries and abroad.
Bout was extradited by U.S authorities in 2010. The ex-soviet arms dealer will continue to reside in his new 8 x 10 foot home due to charges of terrorism related to a previous U.S sting operation. Would think one would need back up just for that 70′s porn stache á la Burt Reynolds. Damn thing would make even Chuck Norris flinch.
Bout insists he is a legitimate businessman. You bet your ass he is. As legitimate as a door-to-door Maytag salesman.
Here’s a new video of George Zimmerman being taken into custody with no apparent bruises or blood. Hmm…thoughts?
Update: New enhanced images have surfaced from the video above that potentially provide a little more truth to Zimmerman’s accusations. Maybe, just maybe is he telling the truth? This is about to get REAL ugly. Put your helmets on. Wonder if Spike Lee enjoys the taste of foot.
Maybe telling the truth?
Update: This is a very graphic photo/video that may just prove that George Zimmerman was in a severe altercation with Trayvon Martin leading up to his death:
This comes to all as a great loss and to those who especially loved her music. Whitney Houston, 48 died from what appears to be a possible drowning in her bathtub. Prescription drugs were found at her 4th floor Beverly Hills Hotel room though it is not confirmed that was a cause of death. We all knew she had problems with drugs, but dying in your forties is always a shock regardless.
