--IT’S BAD LUCK NOT TO BE SUPERSTITIOUS
…What a weekend. I won’t go into it, but it was not pretty.
…Some horrific things happened in our country and around the world, just unbelievable stuff, most of it quite tragic, such as the Oklahoma postal worker who was fired and returned to his work place and beheaded (yep) a female co-worker.
--Then there was a woman in Greece who, an hour after being buried, was heard screaming in her casket. By the time they’d dug her out, she was dead. An investigation is being launched.
--Then there was this:
Two young Amish girls who were abducted from their vegetable stand in Oswegatchie, New York, by a couple. The girls were kept in a cage and repeatedly abused for months.
For letting down her family's honor, a 12-year-old girl in China was killed and cut into pieces by her father, who then took the grisly pieces across the street to a public bathroom and dumped them in a public bathroom, police said.
The dad in Wenzhou City said he strangled his daughter because she was doing poorly at school, according to authorities.
A 5-year-old boy tested positive for cocaine after sheriff’s deputies in California busted up his parents’ drug empire, authorities said.
The little boy was sitting next to a half-pound bag of blow in the back seat of his parents’ car on Friday when Ventura County Sheriff’s Deputies pounced on the Sylmar couple, authorities said.
The tot’s dad, 31-year-old Marco Cuevas, is accused of dealing coke and guns for months before a narcotics task force brought him down.
He and his 29-year-old wife, Sandy, loaded up the car on Friday and headed out for a family drug deal, leaving the bulk of the coke in the back seat with the five-year-old, authorities said.
Cuevas was carrying another couple ounces of cocaine, and his wife had $10,000 in drug money when they were arrested, authorities said.
They confiscated several pounds of marijuana, hundreds of pills, $75,000 in cash, 16 guns and nearly 3,000 rounds of ammunition, authorities said.
The couple lived in the house with their three kids, and Sandy Cuevas is pregnant with a fourth child, stunned neighbors said.
Preliminary tests showed the 5-year-old had cocaine in his system, deputies said.
Sandy Cuevas’ sister claimed there was no way the boy was high.
“No he wasn’t,” she told reports, adding her sister was “a perfect mom.”
…Holy Hell. There are a lot more evil people in the world than you would think.
…But on a couple of happy notes, I saw these:
