Florida Man Kills Man Over His Imaginary Girlfriend

A Florida man gunned down his mother’s friend because he believed the man was flirting with his girlfriend –who does not exist.

Unimaginable.

According to the AJC– Brian Desario, 30, walked into the garage of a home where his mother, her boyfriend and another friend were hanging out and accused a man, identified as 56-year-old David Armstrong, of flirting with his girlfriend. He then fatally shot Armstrong, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said that Desario suffered from mental illness. 

The suspect, Brian Desario, believed that the mom’s friend; who is the victim in this case, was trying to pick up Brian’s girlfriend and hit on Brian’s girlfriend,” Nocco said after the incident. “Please note, Brian does not have a girlfriend. In his mind, he did. But, in reality, he didn’t.”

Following the shooting, Desario began walking toward the nearby Gulf Highlands Elementary School, pointing his gun at the building. The school was immediately put on lockdown, and no children were harmed. When police arrived, Desario opened fire on two deputies, initiating a 10-minute shootout, during which he was killed.

Lawmakers Brawl In Uganda Parliament Over Presidential Age Limit

Ugandan politicians went to war for 2 days straight in a WWE tag team style brawl over the country’s presidential age limit.

Reuters — Lawmakers brawled in Uganda’s parliament for a second day running on Wednesday over a fiercely disputed move to change the constitution to let long-ruling President Yoweri Museveni run for re-election after age 75.

MPs exchanged blows and kicks, with some using microphone stands as crude weapons in the melee, and at least two female lawmakers were carried out of the chamber after collapsing, a Reuters journalist on the scene said.

At least 25 MPs opposed to the proposed constitutional amendment to prolong Museveni’s tenure were forcibly ejected on orders of the speaker for involvement in fighting on Tuesday. All other like-minded MPs then walked out.

After calm returned, ruling party MP Raphael Magyezi introduced the contested motion authorizing parliament to draft and present a bill that would lift the constitution’s age cap on presidential candidates.

Under the existing constitution, eligibility to stand as a presidential candidate in the East African country has an age ceiling of 75.

That makes Museveni, 73, in power since 1986 and increasingly accused of authoritarianism and a failure to curb corruption, unqualified to seek re-election at the next polls in 2021. Removing the age cap would erase that barrier.

Smh, clearly the US isn’t the only country that has ahem… “president probs.” 

It’s really shameful that politicians and lawmakers can’t seem to come together and do their jobs without pure hellfire and brimstone unleashing. It’s unfortunate that they don’t seem as concerned about helping the people as they do “flexing their power” among each other, meanwhile WE THE PEOPLE are casualties of the war.

Iran Publicly Hangs Child Killer 


Now this is what you call vigilante justice. 
The US criminal justice system is Disneyland in comparison to some of these foreign countries.

According to The NY Times–

Esmail Jafarzadeh, 42 confessed to the brutal rape and murder of Atena Aslani, who disappeared in June. Her body was found in Jafarzadeh’s garage. 

Iran’s Supreme Court handed down the death sentence on September 11 after it took prosecutors a week to secure a conviction at his trial in August. The case drew national attention inside Iran and a comment from the country’s president, Hassan Rouhani, who reportedly described the crime as “horrendous” and had called for Jafarzadeh to be dealt swift justice.

According to Agence-France Presse–

The hanging took place in front of a large crowd that cheered loudly when Jafarzadeh’s neck was put in the noose. One report indicated that thousands turned out for the public execution, with many capturing video of it on their mobile phones. An amateur photo of Jafarzadeh’s hanging was shown on the website of the state-run news agency.

But many on social media found the spectacle disturbing and expressed their outrage over the public execution on social media, according to Newsweek. 

Some took issue with the fact the government does now allow women inside stadiums to watch sporting events, but does allow them to gather and witness public executions. 

Authorities said Jafarzadeh had also confessed to the murder of another woman. 

What do you think. The crime was horrific, but do you think the punishment fits in this case?

Florida Authorities To Check For Outstanding Warrants At Hurricane Irma Shelters 

If you live in Florida and have any outstanding warrants, parking tickets, etc., you might want to evacuate now

According to the NY Times if you go to a shelter seeking refuge from Hurricane Irma and you have any unpaid debts to society, you will be arrested.


NY Times —Grady Judd, the sheriff in Polk County, announced in a series of messages on Twitter.

If you go to a shelter for Irma and you have a warrant, we’ll gladly escort you to the safe and secure shelter called the Polk County Jail.”

The sheriff said law enforcement officers would be posted at shelters to check IDs.

“We cannot and we will not have innocent children in a shelter with sexual offenders & predators. If you have a warrant, turn yourself in to the jail — it’s a secure shelter.”

The sheriff’s office made the announcements as residents of Florida on Wednesday stocked up or made preparations to evacuate ahead of Hurricane Irma, which on Wednesday battered the northeast Caribbean and was moving on to the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

Polk County, in Central Florida, has a population of more than 600,000 people. There are 47 public shelters in the county, but they have not yet been opened to accept hurricane evacuees.

The practices of law enforcement officials and immigration authorities during life-threatening storms have frequently come under scrutiny, as happened during Hurricane Harvey in Texas and in 2012 during Hurricane Isaac in Louisiana.
