suspended practice while police and federal agents were called to
investigate.

After a complete analysis, FBI forensic experts determined that the
white substance, unknown to the players, was the goal line.

Denard Manns Executed

DENARD Manns, convicted of robbing, raping and murdering a US Army soldier in her home while on parole almost exactly 10 years ago, has been executed in Texas.

Manns, a 42-year-old African-American with an extensive criminal record, was put to death by lethal injection and pronounced dead at 6:24 pm Thursday (11. 24am AEDT today), according to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

Manns was condemned for fatally shooting 26-year-old Michelle Robson of Fort Hood, Texas, in the head and chest after sexually assaulting her.

He had been on parole from a previous armed robbery conviction in New York state when he committed the crime on November 18, 1998.

Ms Robson was found half-naked in her bathtub, after being shot five times.

The Texas public prosecutor's office said DNA analysis showed Manns had raped the victim.

Fingerprint evidence on the murder weapon further implicated him in the crime.

After the murder he fled the apartment in Robson's car, taking her jewelry and credit cards.

Manns was convicted in 2002, and refused to appear at the subsequent punishment phase of his trial.

In his last statement, Manns criticised his own lawyers, who he said "purposely denied me a fair trial". Source
He was crying about about a fair trial?!? What about his victim's fair trial? This convict also converted to Islam while spending his time waiting on the appeals process.

George Whitaker III Executed

HUNTSVILLE, Texas - A man who went on a murderous rampage against the family of his ex-girlfriend was executed Wednesday after he apologized and asked his family to pray for him.

George Whitaker III, who killed a 16-year-old girl and seriously wounded her mother and 5-year-old sister in 1994, was pronounced dead at 6:15 p.m. CST, eight minutes after lethal drugs began flowing into his body. Source



Justice was served.

Elkie Lee Taylor Executed

HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) - A parolee convicted of using coat hangers to strangle a 65-year-old mentally ill man in Fort Worth -- has been executed tonight.

Elkie Lee Taylor was condemned for killing Otis Flake.

In his last statement, Taylor said: "You ain't got to worry about nothing" to an aunt and a couple of friends.

He said: "I am going home. I hope to see all of y'all one day. Lord have mercy on my soul."

Then Taylor looked through another death chamber window relatives of his victim were standing and told them, "Stay strong. It's bad to see a man get murdered for something he didn't do. But I am taking it like a man, like a warrior. I am going home to Jesus."  Source

Fox Attack

Thrasher the Fox and his last raid.
PHOENIX -- If she had to give the rabid fox that bit her a nickname, Michelle Felicetta would call it "Thrasher."

Felicetta was hiking a three-mile loop of trail at the base of Granite Mountain in Prescott, Ariz., on Monday when the fox approached her on the trail just like it was meeting her, she told Phoenix station KPHO.

"This fox made eye contact with me and started walking towards me," she said. "That's when I knew something was really wrong.
Beware of foxes that make eye contact.
"I went to back up slowly, and as soon as I went to back up, it came and attacked my foot."

The fox grabbed hold of Felicetta's big toe, but she grabbed it by the neck before it could bite her knee. It bit her arm instead.

"I was choking it with (one) hand," she said. "I was trying (to) get it off … Everything I tried -- he wouldn't let go, and I even considered trying to rip him off, but he had such a good hold it would have done damage."

With the fox hanging from her arm, Felicetta ran a mile back to her car. She managed to pry the fox off of her, wrapped it in her sweatshirt and threw it in the trunk of her car before driving to Yavapai Regional Medical Center.

"As soon as I saw blood, I knew it was probably rabid," she said. "I knew I had to do something."
This is one heck of a woman who can run a mile with a rabid fox on her arm!
When an animal control officer tried to take the fox out of the trunk at the hospital, it bit her, too.

"She thought she had the noose thing around its neck," Felicetta said. "But it slipped out and actually attacked her."

Both Felicetta and the animal control officer have to undergo a series of rabies vaccinations over the next few weeks.

Felicetta said the ordeal was "very hard" for her.

"I love animals; I love nature," she said. "I'm very respectful, but as soon as this incident happened I knew something was wrong with the fox."  Source
I hope they both recover completely.

This would have been such a better story if she had a concealed weapons permit, and been able to use the weapon.

When I lived in Arizona I always had a gun close at hand for just such a event as this. Animals tend to be animals. They are unpredictable and possibly rabid.

Yeah; PETA sucks.

Maybe

Maybe now the great white RINO will head off to pasture and retire when his term is up. I guess reaching across the isle did not help much in his election. Moderate republicans cannot win elections.

How can someone claim to unite us by taking (spreading the wealth) what I and my wife work very hard for and give it to someone whom does not want to work harder (or at all) on there own; like Peggy Joseph.

Barack Hussein Obama II; A class act?

Hell No!
This friggin loser had to come down here to Jacksonville and flip off Senator McCain just to prove to us what kind of a class act he really is. I bet he learned this from the ingrate Bill Ayers or Jesse "Cut his Nuts off" Jackson or maybe that moronic wife of his. That sure is Presidential behavior isn't it.

Here is a picture of him flipping off that racist wife of his.
Maybe it is just a cultural thing?
Are they not the picture of happiness?
