Dude shoots computer after catching wife chatting with guys
A man who caught his wife chatting with men online decided to log her off for good early Tuesday — by gunning down her computer, police said.
Jason Griffith, 23, was arrested on charges of reckless endangerment, simple assault, terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and harassment.
Police allege Mr. Griffith fired one .40-caliber bullet into his wife’s computer tower after a 2 AM argument inside a bedroom on the second floor of the couple’s residence.
After returning home early Tuesday, Mr. Griffith became angry that his wife was chatting with men on the social networking Web site MySpace.com. He first assaulted her in the kitchen and then tried to drag her upstairs.
Once upstairs, he shot the computer and fired a bullet into the floor. No one was injured. Officers recovered the gun, a black Springfield Armory pistol, with a loaded magazine and a round in the chamber. Mr. Griffith was arraigned and transported to Lackawanna County Prison. » Article here

[tragic] woman dies in ER lobby, as 911 refuses to help
A woman who lay bleeding on the emergency room floor of a troubled inner-city hospital died after 911 dispatchers refused to contact paramedics or an ambulance to take her to another facility, newly released tapes of the emergency calls reveal.
Edith Isabel Rodriguez, 43, died of a perforated bowel. Her death was ruled accidental by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
Relatives said Rodriguez was bleeding from the mouth and writhing in pain for 45 minutes while she was at a hospital waiting area. Experts have said she could have survived had she been treated early enough. “I’m in the emergency room. My wife is dying and the nurses don’t want to help her out,” Rodriguez’s boyfriend, Jose Prado, is heard saying in Spanish through an interpreter on the tapes.
“What’s wrong with her?” a female dispatcher asked.
“She’s vomiting blood,” Prado said.
“OK, and why aren’t they helping her?” the dispatcher asked.
"They’re just watching her. They’re watching her there and they’re not doing anything. They’re just watching her,” Prado said. » Full article here

Iran to execute porn stars, views them as 'corrupter of the world'
Iran's parliament on Wednesday voted in favor of a bill that could lead to the death penalty for persons convicted of working in the production of pornographic movies.
With a 148-5 vote in favor and four abstentions, lawmakers present at the Wednesday session of the 290-seat parliament approved that "producers of pornographic works and main elements in their production are considered corrupter of the world and could be sentenced to punishment as corrupter of the world."
The term, "corrupter of the world" is taken from the Quran, the Muslims' holy book, and ranks among the highest on the scale of an individual's criminal offenses. Under Iran's Islamic Penal Code, it carries a death penalty.
The "main elements" referred to in the draft include producers, directors, cameramen and actors involved in making a pornographic video. » Full article here

Dude gets 2 DUI's in one day from the same cop
A man was cited for drunken driving twice in the same day, by the same officer, and jailed after authorities said he showed up drunk for his arraignment.
Court records said Adam T. Lundgren, 42, was cited for misdemeanor drunken driving after being spotted driving erratically. He was later released to a sober friend, but jumped from the friend's car and returned to downtown, where he continued drinking, court records said.
At about 10 p.m., Lundgren drove into a bridge railing and started to run away. Witnesses captured him and held him until police arrived. Officer Cody Lanier of the Missoula Police Department again cited Lundgren for drunken driving, along with reckless driving and failing to heed a stop sign. » Article here
