Gotta Love Texas!

No idea if it’s true or not, but there are alot of stories close enough that are true for this one to make you smile just a little 😉 I got this via email from an old friend.
Rather than forward via email I thought it might be more apt to post it here where far more people will read it 😉

MARCH 5th, 2009

Last Thursday Night Around Midnight, A Woman From Houston , Texas Was Arrested,
Jailed, And Charged With Manslaughter For Shooting A Man 6 Times In The Back
As He Was Running Away With Her Purse. ~

The Following Monday Morning,
The Woman Was Called In Front Of The Arraignment Judge, Sworn In,
And Asked To Explain Her Actions.
The Woman Replied, “I Was Standing At The Corner Bus Stop
For About 15 Minutes, Waiting For The Bus To Take Me Home After Work.
I Am A Waitress At A Local Cafe…
I Was There Alone, So I Had My Right Hand On My Pistol,
That Was In My Purse, That Was Hung Over My Left Shoulder.

All Of A Sudden I Was Being Spun Around Hard To My Left.
As I Caught My Balance, I Saw A Man
Running Away From Me With My Purse.
I Looked Down At My Right Hand And I Saw That My Fingers Were Wrapped Tightly
Around My Pistol. The Next Thing I Remember Is Saying Out Loud,
” No Way Punk! Your Not Stealing My Pay Check And Tips.”
I Raised My Right Hand, Pointed My Pistol
At The Man Running Away From Me With My Purse,
And Squeezed The Trigger Of My Pistol 6 Times!

When Asked By The Arraignment Judge,
“Why Did You Shoot The Man 6 Times?”

The Woman Replied Under Oath,
“Because, When I Pulled The Trigger The 7th Time, It Only Went Click.”

The Woman Was Acquitted Of All Charges. She Was Back At Work, At The Cafe, The Next Day!

Ever wonder…

…why I always said that guy my mom married after we moved to Tejas (when I was a kid) was such a chode?

I could go over the very long list of abusive things he’d done directly to my mom and I, but quite frankly my memory is rather vivid and reliving most of the worst events in my life just doesn’t seem fun right now. What I will do -however- is treat you all to a very recent taste of the jerk…the loser…the criminal…the asshole…that was married to my mom, was the sole instigator in trashing most of my youth, and who apparently wasn’t satisfied with wasting mine and my mother’s lives.

Read this ARTICLE, then this ARTICLE.1

To be clear everyone…this guy is not my real father. Please don’t confuse the two. The person referenced in the article linked is Joe Cruz Martinez, who married my mom shortly after she and I moved to Tejas.
