  • Remains of 274 U.S. Troops Dumped in Landfill. As a Veteran, I Cannot Describe How Disgusted I am.

    Posted by Mike DuBord

    The US Air Force dumped the cremated, partial remains of at least 274 troops in a landfill before halting the secretive practice in 2008, the Washington Post reported Thursday.

    The procedure was never formally authorized or disclosed to senior Pentagon officials, who conducted a review of the cremation policies of Dover Air Base -- the main point of entry for US war dead -- in 2008, the Post said.

    Nor was the dumping ever disclosed to the families of the fallen troops, who had authorized the military to dispose of the remains in a respectful and dignified manner, the Post said, citing Air Force officials.

    The newspaper quoted officials as saying that a precise count of the remains disposed of at a Virginia landfill would require searching through the records of 6,300 troops whose remains have passed through Dover since 2001.

    An additional group of 1,762 remains -- which could not undergo DNA testing because they were badly damaged or burned -- were also disposed of in this manner, the Post said, citing the Air Force.

    Defense officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

    Last month investigators said they had found "gross mismanagement" at the US Air Force mortuary, with body parts lost and remains mishandled.

    After allegations from whistle-blowers, an Air Force probe found that two "portions of the remains" of fallen troops had been lost and uncovered other problems at the morgue.

    New procedures have been put in place at the mortuary and the commander at the morgue, a colonel, together with two civilian officials were disciplined over the episode but not sacked.

    The Dover affair echoes a scandal that erupted last year at Arlington National Cemetery, the country's hallowed ground for war dead. Investigators there uncovered cases of misidentified remains and mismanagement.

    Following an Army probe, the conduct at Arlington is now the subject of a criminal investigation.

  • Couple Badly Injured After Naked Body Builder Attack.

    Posted by Mike DuBord
     

    COLTON, Calif. (AP) — Police say a naked, 300-pound bodybuilder savagely beat a Southern California couple at their home, leaving them in critical condition.

    The Sun of San Bernardino says 22-year-old Ruben Arzu apparently was under the influence of steroids and other drugs, and it took four police officers, two stun gun blasts and four sets of handcuffs to restrain him.

    Police say the couple came home late Saturday to find Arzu naked on the front porch of their home in Colton.

    When Arzu was confronted by the 35-year-old husband, police say the bodybuilder attacked the man, causing major head trauma.

    The man's wife called 911. Police say Arzu then picked her up and threw her around, causing facial injuries and multiple cuts to her head.

    Arzu was booked on suspicion of attempted homicide.

  • Former "Sheriff Of The Year" Arrested And Sent To Jail Named After Him.

    Mugshot of former "sheriff of the year" Pat Sullivan

    Every civil servant wants to experience his or her legacy firsthand--but not the way that onetime Arapahoe Sheriff Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. has. Sullivan, a nationally renowned law enforcement leader, was arrested on drug charges and is now being detained in the Denver area jail that bears his name.

     

    Sullivan, who in 2001 was named the National Sheriff Association's "Sheriff of the Year," was arrested on suspicion of trafficking methamphetamines.

    Local news station CBS4 began an investigation of Sullivan last month on a tip that he had agreed to meet a male informant, providing drugs in exchange for sex. He was subsequently arrested by the South Metro Drug Task Force and is currently being held on a $250,000 bond.

    And in an incredible twist of fate, Sullivan now cooling his heels at The Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. Detention Facility, named in his honor.

    "The allegations of criminal behavior involving Pat Sullivan are extraordinarily disturbing," said Grayson Robinson, Arapahoe County's current sheriff. "While the arrest of the former sheriff is very troubling, no one, and particularly a former peace officer, is above the law. This is the most shocking thing I've ever been involved with."

     

    Sullivan, 68, has been retired for nine years, but had been serving as director of safety and security for Cherry Creek Schools.

    "This is a very sad time for the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office and our community," Robinson said. The CBS4 report also found that for several years Sullivan has posted bond for multiple suspects held in drug cases at jail facilities across the state.

    As recently as 2008, Sullivan was an active participant in state and local methamphetamine task forces, helping Colorado draft a plan to deal with the surge in meth-related crime.

    In 1995 President Bill Clinton named Sullivan to the National Commission on Crime Prevention and Control. According to a 1995 White House news release, Sullivan was a consultant to U.S. House Subcommittee on Crime and served on two advisory councils affiliated with the Department of Justice.

  • Kidnapper Sues Former Hostages For Breaking Oral Contract. Uhhh...Is This Guy On Crack?

    Posted by Mike DuBord

     Can there be no trust between a kidnapper and his hostages?

    A man who held a Kansas couple hostage in their home while fleeing from authorities is suing them, claiming they broke an oral contract made when he promised them money in exchange for hiding him from police. The couple has asked a judge to dismiss the suit.

    Jesse Dimmick of suburban Denver is serving an 11-year sentence after bursting into Jared and Lindsay Rowley's Topeka-area home in September 2009. He was wanted for questioning in the beating death of a Colorado man and a chase had begun in in Geary County.

    The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that Dimmick filed a breach of contract suit in Shawnee County District Court, in response to a suit the Rowleys filed in September seeking $75,000 from him for intruding in their home and causing emotional stress.

    Dimmick contends he told the couple he was being chased by someone, most likely the police, who wanted to kill him.

    "I, the defendant, asked the Rowleys to hide me because I feared for my life. I offered the Rowleys an unspecified amount of money which they agreed upon, therefore forging a legally binding oral contract," Dimmick said in his hand-written court documents. He wants $235,000, in part to pay for the hospital bills that resulted from him being shot by police when they arrested him.

    Neighbors have said the couple fed Dimmick snacks and watched movies with him until he fell asleep and they were able to escape their home unharmed.

    Dimmick was convicted in May 2010 of four felonies, including two counts of kidnapping. He was sentenced to 10 years and 11 months on those charges. He was later sent to a jail in Brighton, Colo., where he is being held on eight charges, including murder, in connection of with the killing of Michael Curtis in September 2009. A preliminary hearing originally scheduled for Dec. 6 has been rescheduled for April 12. No plea has been entered in the case.

    Robert E. Keeshan, an attorney for the Rowleys, filed a motion denying there was a contract, but said if there was it would not have been binding anyway.

    "In order for parties to form a binding contract, there must be a meeting of the minds on all essential terms, including and most specifically, an agreement on the price," he wrote.

    Keeshan said the contract also would have been invalid because the couple agreed to let Dimmick in the home only because they knew he had a knife and suspected he might have a gun.

  • Eric Church, Kellie Pickler + More - "The Best Christmas Gift I've Given"...

    Posted by Mike DuBord

    Santa Claus isn’t the only one in the gift giving mood come Christmas. Y100 asked some of today’s top country stars about the best gifts they’ve given to that special someone in their life during the holiday season. From diamonds and Snuggies to an appendix and the gift of helping those in need, we heard it all!

    New dad Eric Church recalls a Christmas many years ago when he was just a kid himself, which was a year that helped him realize the true meaning of the holiday. “We grew up in a small town, and we had one guy who  knew everybody in town, but he was the homeless guy,” Church tells Taste of Country. “We went one year and did a big fruit basket, got some clothes, and we found him one Christmas Eve when he was knocking around the park. We drove around town until we were able to find him, and we gave him the present. It was just a really cool thing. I was young — probably 6 or 7-years-old — but that has always really stuck with me just to go out there and do that and really bring out the true spirit of Christmas.”

    Kellie Pickler echoes Church’s response. “I think the greatest thing that you can give — and I know this might sound cliche — but the greatest thing you can give is your time somewhere,” she says. “Helping people who might not have a Christmas. So we’ll raid the house and give clothes away. We donate things to shelters all the time, but especially around Christmas. It’s always good to help give people who are less fortunate a better Christmas than they would have had had you not come along. I enjoy giving things and not telling … I’ve always thought it was really neat to just give gifts to people and they don’t know where it came from. You just know that they needed it, and you don’t need any recognition or need anything for it. You just need to know that they have what they need. That’s so great. I really do believe God honors that. There are so many people who will not do things like that unless they are going to get their picture taken and a pat on the back for it. So, I don’t like to give and tell [laughs].”

    For Chris Young, this year could be the year of the best Christmas present given to one of his family members. “I always go all out every year on one family member,” says Young. “I’ve just kind of done that for the past couple of years. I’ve got some really good ideas for this year’s. Just in case my family reads this, I don’t want to say what it is … this year will be the best gift I have given!”

    The most important gift to give or receive when it comes to Josh Thompson is just the time spent with the ones he loves. “I love giving people things and all that, but really what matters most to me is getting home and spending some time with my mom and sister and my nieces and stuff like that,” Thompson says. “That’s all I care about.

  • 4 Pitbulls Destroyed After Mauling 2 California Joggers

    Posted by Mike DuBord

    VALLEY CENTER, Calif. (AP) — A San Diego County runner who said he had chunks torn from his legs by pit bulls said he thought he would die during the mauling.

    "I was dripping blood from all over — my shirt, socks, shoes," Richard Garritson, 21, told the San Diego Union-Tribune on Monday after undergoing surgery.

    Garritson and his brother were attacked by a pack of pit bulls as they jogged on a trail late Sunday afternoon about a mile from their home.

    Garritson said he was running ahead of his sister, Meagan Garritson, when at least eight dogs attacked. One bit his leg and a second grabbed his other leg, knocking him down, Garritson said.

    He yelled for his sister to run as he tried to fight off the dogs, which surrounded him. They snapped at his legs and arms. One bit him under his armpit.

    "I was terrified," he said. "I thought I was going to die. They just kept biting at my legs and thighs."

    Garritson, who already had run three miles, was running out of energy and yelled for his 20-year-old brother, John Garrison, who grabbed a stick and tried to fend off the dogs.

    He also was attacked as the dogs kept rushing between the two brothers, Richard Garritson said.

    He said the brothers knew where the dogs lived and they yelled for the owner, who managed to get all but three dogs into the house. The owner finally put a leash on one of the larger dogs and the others broke off the attack, Richard Garritson said.

    The brothers walked to a neighbor's house and a woman there called county sheriff's deputies.

    "We could barely hold ourselves up," he said.

    Richard Garritson, who comes from a family of competitive runners, said his doctor told him that he probably will be able to run again even though he lost chunks from his lower legs.

    John Garritson suffered less serious bites to his legs. Their two sisters and a 9-year-old niece were not attacked.

    Four dogs, all 7-month-old pit bull mixes, were destroyed at the owner's request, county animal control Lt. Dan DeSousa said.

    The department continues to investigate and will decide whether to pursue charges against the owner, he said.

  • Woman Pepper Sprays Black Friday Shoppers. What?!

    Posted by Mike DuBord

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — A woman shot pepper spray to keep shoppers from merchandise she wanted during a Black Friday sale, and 20 people suffered minor injuries, authorities said.

    The incident occurred shortly after 10:20 p.m. Thursday in a crowded Los Angeles-area Walmart as shoppers hungry for deals were let inside the store.

    Police said the suspect shot the pepper spray when the coverings over the items she wanted were removed.

    "Somehow she was trying to use it to gain an upper hand," police Lt. Abel Parga told The Associated Press early Friday.

    He said she was apparently after some electronics and used the pepper spray to keep other shoppers at bay.

    Officials said 20 people suffered minor injuries. Fire department spokesman Shawn Lenske said the injuries to least 10 of them were due to " rapid crowd movement."

    Parga said police were still looking for the woman.

    The store remained open and those not affected by the pepper spray continued shopping.

  • Can You Find Wisconsin On A Map? ESPN Can't...REALLY?!?!

    Can You Find Wisconsin On A Map? Can ESPN?

     

     

     

     

    It's been a great year for the state of Wisconsin. The Brewers went deep into the playoffs behind the MVP bat of Ryan Braun. The Packers haven't lost since 2010. Wisconsin hockey is ranked No. 1 in the nation. And yet the Badger State can't get any respect.

    As the all-seeing CNBC sports business reporter Darren Rovell shows in one of his tweets, ESPN's SportsCenter did a report on Braun and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in front of an artist's rendering of ... Minnesota.

    ESPN was close geographically, yes. But Pittsburgh and Cleveland are also close -- geographically. Wisconsin fans will point out the Vikings are doormats and the Twins are also-rans. Minnesota fans, meanwhile, will note their state's dominance in ... WNBA hoops!

    Hey, we all make mistakes. How many of us can correctly identify all 50 states on a map? (Well, probably quite a few of us.) But if you're going to get Wisconsin wrong, at least err on the Michigan side. The Upper Peninsula is full of Packers fans, anyway.
