[NBC]  A man hunting with his grandson accidentally killed a U.S. Marine due to return to duty this week, after mistaking him for a bear in the Oregon wilderness, authorities said. Christopher Ochoa, 20, of French Camp, Calif., died at the scene in western Oregon Friday night. He had been hiking with a friend through a field and was wearing dark clothes, according to The Associated Press. The pair were headed to Silver Creek Falls Park. Gene Collier, who was hunting bear with his 12-year-old grandson saw movement in the brush and fired one shot from a .270-caliber rifle, striking Ochoa, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office said. His pal was able to summon authorities and direct them to the scene. Although deputies administered first aid to Ochoa, who was alive when they arrived, he died at the scene. Collier, 67, hasn’t been charged and authorities said the shooting appeared to be accidental. Still, the case was handed over to the local district attorney’s office. A press release from the sheriff’s office said Collier cooperated fully with authorities, and there was no indication that he was impaired by drugs or alcohol. Ochoa’s family in California told police he and Raymond Westrom, 53, of Lathrop, Calif., were in Salem, Oregon, to do work on a house. Ochoa was set to report back for duty on Oct. 25.

It’s like I’ve said a thousand times by now, it’s just not a good idea to hunt for bears. Sometimes they eat you, sometimes they electrocute you and sometimes you accidentally shoot and kill a 20 year old U.S. Marine about to head back to the desert to fight for your second amendment rights to accidentally shoot someone. This is exactly why I never fucked around in the woods during hunting season when I was a kid, and I loved playing in the woods. Tree forts, bmx jumps, man hunt, boobie traps, sneaking off to drink beer I swiped from family parties. You name it. But once I saw people start roaming around with orange vests and Elmer Fudd hats, (more…)


Bet there are no Sox or Mets fans out killing dictators.

This is some seriously intense video. I’m so confused though. In the first, it appears that they’re trying to get him to safety but it also sounds like they’re cheering. Maybe just some cultural thing where “woooo” really means, “holy fuck get me outta here”. I don’t know. Maybe they’re anti-loyalists capturing him? I know what you’re thinking. Who cares, just show the video.  Right?  Fine.   (more…)

I know, I know… pics or it didn’t happen. Oh wait, what’s this? A photo just came across my desk. Looks like Gaddafi and he looks pretty dead. Check it out (Graphic). (more…)

Cash Cab Guy Wins Jackpot, Kills Pedestrian

[WKYC]  A pedestrian has died in Vancouver after being hit by a fake taxi that had just completed filming a segment for the cable TV game show “Cash Cab.” Vancouver Police said the 61-year-old man died in a hospital shortly after being struck by the replica yellow cab late Friday night. Police did not immediately release the victim’s identity. Andrew Burnstein, president of the show’s production company, says the accident happened as a producer was driving the mock cab back to a storage facility after filming a segment for the Canadian version of the game show. On “Cash Cab,” broadcast in North America on the Discovery Channel, unsuspecting people who flag down the replica yellow taxi become instant contestants on a game show, answering trivia questions for cash prizes.

Quick question, did anyone else not see this coming? I watch ‘Cash Cab’ about three times a week, guesstimate, and every time you have some semi-attractive broad who can’t make it past the $50 questions, I wish I could be Ben Bailey and run over pedestrians too. You can’t blame the guy, he probably just reached his threshold.   (more…)

[CNN]  Rapper M-Bone of the group Cali Swag District died Sunday night in what police said was a drive-by shooting in his hometown, Inglewood, California. M-Bone, whose real name was Montae Talbert, was sitting in a car in the 400 block of North LaBrea Avenue when a car pulled up next to his and someone fired two rounds that struck the rapper in his head, Inglewood Police Lt. Steve Overly said Monday. Talbert, 22, died later at a hospital, Overly said. Preliminary reports on the model of car that was involved have not been confirmed, he said. Cali Swag District’s biggest hip-hop hit came in 2010 with the song “Teach Me How to Dougie.” Greg Miller, the rap group’s representative, said Talbert was “the victim of a random act of violence.” The rapper “was an inspiration to his family, friends and fans,” Miller said. “He was a hardworking, passionate artist and dancer who will be sorely missed.”

I’ve heard a lot of good things about The Dougie – pretty sure it’s the black Macarena.  The Blackarena, if you will.  But although I mastered the Macarena long ago, I can’t say I’ve ever attempted The Dougie…until now.  Office door is getting shut and I’m watching this video over and over until I get it right in honor of M-Bone.  Pour a little…

I can’t tell you where or how I got this video, but let’s just say Julian Assange has nothing on me. Keep in mind that it’s very graphic and could be disturbing to our younger readers. It’s very high quality and shows every detail, so it’s not for the faint of heart. If you’re interested in seeing it, check out the video after the jump… (more…)
