A psycho Oregon father is in jail after allegedly knocking out a teenager after his son was elbowed during a pickup football game.
Investigators in Coos County, Ore., arrested Mark Andrew Colton, 34, last Saturday for second-degree assault stemming from an October incident involving his 10-year-old son.
The boy had been playing football with a group of kids at the city park when he was elbowed in the face during a play.
The child went home and told his father, who then went to the field and demanded to know who had hit his son.
When a 13-year-old who had not struck Colton's child spoke up the suspect allegedly struck him in the temple, knocking him unconscious.
The kid was taken to a hospital and treated.
Colton was taken to the Coos County Jail and held on $25,000 bail. Hopefully someone remembers to lock the gate this time.
"It says that I'm unique," VanDyke said.
Nope! It's says that your mother didn't, can't or won't braid your hair.
"First of all, it's puffy and I like it that way. I know people will tease me about it because it's not straight. I don't fit in."
In my opinion the issue is not about her hair being straight. It's about her hair looking like the girl from " Beasts of The Southern Wild". Even "Hushpuppy" got her hair done when she got some money.
VanDyke's mom, Sabrina Kent, said her daughter has had the same hairstyle since the beginning of the school year, but school officials only became concerned after Kent complained to them about her daughter being teased.
"There have been people teasing her about her hair, and it seems to me that they're blaming her," Kent said.
Faith Christian Academy did not immediately return calls nor did the school answer any questions from the media.
Kent said officials told her VanDyke's hair is a "distraction."
I guess that is the politically correct way of putting it.
One of the reasons I love writing "Just When You Thought You Heard It All News" is because I can always manage to find a crazier story week after week, and I can always manage to find a dumber criminal than the last.
The narcotics trafficking defendant who attended a Florida court hearing wearing a sweatshirt imprinted with a cartoon like recipe for producing crack cocaine was convicted last week for a pair of felonies and sentenced to 3 years in state prison.
They should give him 3 more years for wearing his confession to court.
Christopher Patterson, a convicted felon who previously served time for cocaine possession entered no contest pleas last Tuesday to distribution and conspiracy charges related to the sale of the painkiller Oxycodone to an undercover cop.
The 27-year-old Patterson, who was jailed following his plea, has an August 2016 release date.
As seen above, Patterson made an unfortunate wardrobe choice when he appeared last year in a Fort Lauderdale courtroom for a hearing in the Oxycodone case. Patterson’s colorful sweatshirt carried the slogan “Stack Paper Say Nothing” and included drawings-baking soda, spoons, an open flame, and a crock pot depicting the procedure to manufacture crack.
The photo of Patterson was taken by a lawyer who noticed the defendant’s incongruous courtroom attire. Patterson’s sweatshirt was manufactured by a firm called Stash House and had a zipper pull in the shape of a handgun.
Patterson’s criminal history includes arrests for pot possession, larceny, resisting arrest, probation violations, and failure to appear in court. He has also been convicted several times for cocaine possession.
In an indigence filing last week, Zimmerman said he had only $144 and had amassed $2.5 million in debt. Zimmerman also had a colleague of Dowdy’s file a motion for him to recover his iPhone and Blackeberry devices as well as the aforementioned pocket knife.
Zimmerman is currently out on bail.
But he is not free, and will never be free.

Who stole JFK's brain? It has been a mystery since 1966 when, three years after the president's assassination, it was discovered that his brain, which had been removed during the autopsy and stored in the National Archives, had gone missing. Conspiracy theorists have long suggested the missing organ would have proved Kennedy was not shot from the back by Lee Harvey Oswald, but from the front.
The latest theory puts forward a less juicy cover-up – James Swanson, author of a new book on the assassination of Kennedy, suggests the president's brain was taken by his younger brother Robert, "perhaps to conceal evidence of the true extent of President Kennedy's illnesses, or perhaps to conceal evidence of the number of medications that President Kennedy was taking".

Those lyrics set Shingles free, but the experience made him lose his “artistic creativity.”
“I felt like the old days, slavery. Like dance for the master, dance and sing for the master. It just messed me up inside,” Shingles said.
“This is about me being able to tell my story so this won’t happen to another kid. This is outrageous. This is very disrespectful,” Shingles said.
Shingles and two friends were handcuffed for 90 minutes while cops performed their search, said the suit, which seeks unspecified damages. They apparently wanted to question a visitor to the apartment, but that man was not charged.
Shingles’ cousin Tyriek Fortune was arrested on a previous charge.

A recent report shed light on the growing trend, displaying unsettling footage of psychopathic teens participating in this game that they call "Knockout". It involves randomly targeting passersby, with the ultimate goal being to knock them out with one punch as they walk by.
One victim shown in the footage was 46-year-old Ralph Santiago of Hoboken, N.J., who was found dead with his neck broken and head lodged between iron fence posts.
Video surveillance shows Santiago walking in an alleyway in broad daylight, and just as he’s about to pass a pack of teenagers, one launches the fatal, knockout blow.
And what’s the point?
“For the fun of it,” one teen said in the video.
“They just want to see if you got enough strength to knock somebody out,” said another.
D.C. has not been spared of this violent trend.
One local woman, who was attacked on 14th Street NW in Columbia Heights on Thursday, she believes to have been a target of this game, as a group of around eight males on bikes came up behind her, with one hitting her in the head. According to the report, police categorized the attack as “simple assault.”
The woman says that she believes others in the area should be on the lookout for similar types of attacks.
What they don't realize is that they're ruining their lives just for the fun of it. As I wrote in one of my first blogs, "The Crime Solution"
Penalizing parents for their children's crimes is almost guaranteed to decrease the crime rate across America.
Zimmerman, 30, was taken into custody Monday afternoon following a disturbance call at a home in Apopka, Fla., about 15 miles from Orlando, according to Chief Deputy Dennis Lemma of the Seminole County Sheriff's office.
In July, Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Lemma told reporters that Zimmerman has been charged with aggravated assault, battery, domestic violence, and criminal mischief.
"The victim indicated that she and George Zimmerman were having a verbal dispute and at that time she alleged that he had broken a table and pointed a long barrel shotgun at her," said Lemma.
On July 13, Zimmerman was acquitted of second-degree murder by a six-person jury.
Since the acquittal, Zimmerman has had several run-ins with law enforcement. He was stopped for speeding in Texas about two weeks after his acquittal, and pulled over twice more in Florida (once for speeding and once for overly tinted windows and improperly displayed tags) over the next few months. And in September, police were called to the home of his estranged wife, Shellie, after she told a police dispatcher that he threatened her with a gun. No charges were filed in that incident.

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food,16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
The fact of the matter is that if there has to be a real desire to do better, or else applying these biblical principals are in vein. I cannot impassion anyone or spark a flame that will spur their ambition. All that I can do is impart the principals. After all, there has never been anyone who has been a catalyst for change through osmosis. It begins with the absence of apathy, and the essence of effort.

Now 23, Batman is back in the news after getting sentenced on Monday to three years in jail on a variety of charges. Batman was arrested in August, after surveillance video showed him stealing the equivalent of $400 from a store according to court documents.
In addition Batman stole the ATM cardof his brother, Nurazman Suparman, and fraudulently used it to make purchases totally about $680. He also pleaded guilty to unrelated counts of theft and heroin consumption.
Some fans of Batman have expressed their dismay on the Batman Bin Suparman Fan Club Facebook page, lamenting that their hero "has fallen to the Dark Side." Others have called for someone to break him out of jail. Police have nothing to fear. Planet Kryton blew up years ago. But they have to remember that he is still a billionaire with a huge cave, a fancy utility built, and a butler who will do anything he asks.
Four dumb young men who Instagrammed photos of themselves after purchasing $120 worth of fast food with a stolen credit card now have another photo to post on Instagram: a mug shot. Bet that’ll look pretty snazzy with an antique filter.
After a series of break-ins at a hotel parking lot, one of the victims noticed that she had a charge for $120 worth of food from Carl’s Jr. on her card. As salivatingly awesome as that may be, it was not her own purchase, and the police set out to find the perpetrator.
Once police arrived at the Carl’s Jr. location, they questioned an employee who offered up a license plate number, as well as an account of how she recognized one of the men in the car from a local high school.
Officers then learned photos of the thieves’ purchase may have been posted to an Instagram account. They checked the account and found a photo believed to be one of the suspects eating the food they purchased on the stolen card. With all that fast food goodness, it seems that the alleged hamburglars didn’t think the police could ketchup. Rim shot please!
Using this wealth of information, police were able to track down the vehicle in question. Upon finding it contained items reported stolen from the hotel parking lot, the four suspects were arrested.
Hopefully they enjoyed that meal, because it’s a heck of a lot better than whatever they’ll get to eat in jail even if it was just Carl’s Jr.
Where do I begin with the endless bad judgement of these young dumb men?
If you're going to steal, and you shouldnt by the way. But if you absolutely must risk going to jail at least eat at a 5 star restaurant not a gourmet McDonalds.

Key findings from the report include:
- One of every nine individuals in prison is serving a life sentence.

- Approximately 10,000 lifers have been convicted of nonviolent offenses.
- Nearly half of lifers are African American and 1 in 6 are Latino.
- More than 10,000 life-sentenced inmates have been convicted of crimes that occurred before they turned 18 and nearly 1 in 4 of them were sentenced to LWOP.
