Politics / Mississippi lawmaker allegedly punched wife over sex
« on: May 22, 2019, 10:11:16 AM »
A south Mississippi lawmaker punched his wife in the face after she didn’t undress quickly enough when the lawmaker wanted to have sex, according to a police report in the case.

Republican state Rep. Doug McLeod of Lucedale was arrested Saturday on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.

The Sun Herald reports the document was filed with the George County Sheriff's Department. McLeod is free on bail. He didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

The 58-year-old McLeod has represented George and Stone counties since 2012. He's unopposed for reelection this year.

McLeod hasn't responded to requests for comment. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.

Republican House Speaker Philip Gunn of Clinton said McLeod should step down if he did punch his wife.

"I have attempted to contact Rep. McLeod to request his resignation, if in fact, these allegations are true," Gunn said in a statement Tuesday. "These actions are unacceptable for anyone."

Deputies reported McLeod was drunk and holding a glass of alcohol when they arrived at the family's home Saturday night. Deputies report McLeod had punched his wife and bloodied her nose. They found blood on the bed and bedroom floor.

When McLeod opened the door and officers told him they were responding to a report of a domestic assault, they wrote that he replied "Are you kidding me?"

The deputies said they could hear McLeod when he walked back inside, yelling that "the cops are here."

"Mr. McLeod had slurred speech and walked slow in a zigzag pattern," deputies wrote, adding he was so inebriated he had to grab a handrail to maintain his balance.

When deputies entered, they said two women were standing at the top of a stairwell and both appeared frightened. McLeod's wife eventually came outside after deputies assured her they would keep her away from her husband.

The deputy said McLeod's wife was shaking and upset. McLeod's wife said her husband was drunk and "just snapped," as he often does when under the influence of alcohol, the report said.

Another woman present said McLeod's wife came running up to her room, her face bloodied. The woman shut the door and locked it with McLeod's wife inside.

The other woman said McLeod started banging on the door and telling the women to open it. He told the other woman if she didn't open the door, he'd "kill her (expletive) dog."

McLeod's wife did not want go to the hospital by ambulance, but assured authorities she'd have her daughter take her to get checked so authorities would have a report of the injuries.

George County Sheriff Keith Havard said the investigation is continuing.

The 58-year-old McLeod has represented George and Stone counties since 2012. He’s unopposed for re-election this year.

A Tennessee woman was hospitalized in critical condition after her son shot her at a college baseball game, according to police.

According to the Millington Tennessee Police Department, officers responded to a call of shots fired at U.S.A Baseball Stadium around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. A University of Memphis and University of Tennessee at Martin baseball game for the Babe Howard Baseball Classic was going on.

"The child had been playing in a vintage World War II Jeep. The Jeep had been on display as part of a Veterans Appreciation Day at the stadium. The child found an unsecured handgun inside the vehicle and believed it was a toy gun. The child picked up the gun and pulled the trigger, firing a round which stuck the child’s mother," a police report states.

Police determined the gun belonged to Charles McFarland Jr., 76, and he was charged with reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon.

"It was an accident, pure and simple," Millington Police Chief Mark Dunbar said, according to WREG.

Fans evacuated as officers responded to the scene. Officials said the mother was "talking and awake" when she was taken to the hospital.

"Secure your weapons. If you got a weapon, everybody's got a right to carry if they've got a permit. But you need to use common sense about securing your weapons," Dunbar said.

Where is the fake outrage and total condemnation of the shooter? 

I haven’t been looking very hard, but have they released a mug shot of this murderer yet?

TUSKEGEE, Ala. –The Tuskegee University baseball team is set to host Lane College in a four-game series that starts with a Saturday doubleheader and the Seventh Annual Breast Cancer Awareness game. The Golden Tigers continue their fight against breast cancer in Alabama. TU will raise awareness about the disease and honor survivors at a special "Pink Out" doubleheader at 12:00 p.m. from Paterson Field in Montgomery, Ala.

The games are free and open to the public and donations can be given at the gate to help fund the Joy to Life Foundation or by clicking here.

"We were looking for an impactful community service initiative, so we decided to do a game dedicated to a cause," Said head baseball Reginald Hollins. "When we started researching who the game should benefit, I had breast cancer in mind, because I had a friend who went through that," Hollins stated.

The Joy to Life Foundation featured coach Hollins and the Golden Tigers in one of its recent publications.

The weekend's slate of activities end Sunday another afternoon at 12 p.m. with the Dragons.

Joy to Life is a key partner with the Alabama Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program. Their efforts have not only included funding for mammograms for underserved women, but also significant marketing campaigns to educate women about the importance of early detection for breast cancer and ensure uninsured, low income women are aware of ABCCEDP's free services.

Over the last five years, Joy to Life's funding and marketing efforts in combination with recommendations from ABCCEDP's committed physicians, the commitment of community health advisors, the support of strong advocates and the commitment of local county health departments to their communities has led to over 15,000 mammograms for uninsured, low income women of all ages. During this time, 689 breast cancers were diagnosed.

Without the commitment and support from partners like the Joy to Life Foundation, ABCCEDP would not be able to reach these women. Due to this support, on average of 11,500 women

I wish him the best at Vandy. I feel he can win there if he got a few more players on his roster. Wondering if his AAU affiliations will pay dividends.

Curious as to how folks will respond....

Golf, as a sport, reveal more about your character than any other sport I’ve played. My experience has been if you show me someone who cheat at golf, they more than likely cheat in most everything they do. It’s a game of integrity and character.

All bark and no bite! I wonder what the family of Otto Warmbier is thinking right about now....

This is as truthful as his first twelve denials regarding paying Stormy Daniels $130K for some pooty tang.

'He tells me that he didn't know': Trump defends Kim Jong Un over death of Otto Warmbier
CNN Updated: 8:15 AM EST Feb 28, 2019
President Donald Trump on Thursday said he does not hold North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un responsible for Otto Warmbier's death after Kim denied knowledge of the American student's maltreatment.

"He felt badly about it. He felt very badly," Trump said at a news conference after his second summit with Kim, after saying they discussed the matter privately. "He tells me that he didn't know about it and I will take him at his word."

North Korea released Warmbier, an American student, in June 2017 after more than a year of imprisonment, returning him to the US in a coma. Warmbier died days after returning to the US and US officials quickly blamed North Korea for the brain damage Warmbier suffered that led to his death.

It was the latest instance in which Trump has taken the denial of an autocratic leader at face value and Trump's comment ignored the tight control that Kim maintains over the internal affairs of his country as its supreme leader, particularly sensitive matters such as the imprisonment of an American citizen.

Trump appeared to clear Kim of any responsibility in the matter even as he acknowledged that North Korean prisons -- a nefarious facet of Kim's repressive rule ---- are "rough."

Trump said he believed Kim's denial in part because it would not be in Kim's interest for Warmbier to wind up in a coma as he did during his imprisonment in North Korea.

"I don't think that the top leadership knew about it," Trump added. "I don't believe that he (Kim) would have allowed that to happen."

Trump has largely avoided the topic of North Korea's atrocious human rights record as he has tried to coax Kim into giving up his nuclear weapons, and Trump's comments on Thursday fit a pattern of Trump glossing over those abuses in favor of strengthening his one-on-one relationship with Kim.

When a reporter tried to ask Kim on Thursday if he was discussing his country's human rights record, Trump jumped in and simply said: "We're discussing everything."
