Tit for Tat and boobs in the news!

Literally, what a boob!

An Orange County woman’s new breasts cost her six months in jail. Yvonne Jean Pampellonne was sentenced Monday in Westminster for using a fraudulent line of credit to obtain $12,000 in cosmetic surgery, including breast implants and liposuction. The 30-year-old woman had pleaded guilty to burglary, grand theft and identity theft. She was sentenced to 180 days in jail and was placed on three years’ probation.

It’s not often we see such a clear cut case of tit for tat.

Next, a pair of boobs – the Oxford Eagle and Tom Dawson, the now tea partying, but otherwise somewhat retired USA who wrote his version of the truth about Dick Scruggs as a co-author to Y’all’s Alan Lang (who isn’t a boob, IMO).  The Eagle who came up with the most intrusive registration form ever is obviously a double-breasted boob.  The Oxford tea party is headed by former MSSC Judge Kay Cobb – a “W” girl back in the day when tea parties required proper manners, white gloves and a hat.

Dawson as a tea party planner makes me wonder if the Oxford group has more than one purpose. It may be his first tea party but wouldn’t be the first rodeo he put together. Wonder if Judge Lackey is joing in or sitting this party out?

Last, a boob on ICE, according to the story another reader sent: Continue reading “Tit for Tat and boobs in the news!”

Jim Brown on the murder of Father Hunter Horgan

Thursday, March 31, 2010

Baton Rouge, Louisiana



Father Hunter Horgan was a popular Episcopal priest in the small South Louisiana town of Thibodaux, Louisiana. He was severely beaten and then stabbed to death in the office of St. John’s Episcopal Church where he was rector. After 18 years of searching, the alleged killer, one Derrick Odomes, was caught, and bound over for trial. But last week, a district judge in the case ruled that Odomes committed the heinous crime as a juvenile, and under Louisiana’s convoluted law, he does not have to serve any time. What kind of justice is that?

The murder of Fr. Horgan took place back in 1992, when Odomes was 14 years old. Under the Louisiana law at that time, a juvenile under 15 could not be charged as an adult, even for first degree murder. So, if Odomes had been arrested at the time of the crime or shortly thereafter, he could only have been jailed until he was 21. Then he would have been set free. The legislature changed the law in 1994 to allow for a convicted murderer to serve time up until his or her 31st birthday, but only for the length of time that ran from the time of the murder until the convict was 21.

In Odomes’case, that would have been a seven year sentence. Still too short for such a vicious crime, but at least he would have been forced to spend some time behind bars. But the “ex post facto” rule kicks in. One cannot be charged with a crime under rules that were not in place when the crime took place.

Here is a video of Sheriff Normand’s drunk buddy Dominick Imbornone

Drunk while driving his patrol car, former JPSO deputy Dominick Imbornone garners his first DWI and a second chance to repeat offend by his boss Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand. This 11 minute video of Imbornone’s first arrest on the causeway bridge tells the story.

Given what we are finding out about drunk driving in Jefferson Parish, does anyone have any further questions why Craig Codina was allowed to remain free until he killed someone driving drunk? 

I don’t think Wayne and I see this quite the same way. Imbornone should have been fired after the first offense IMHO. Continue reading “Here is a video of Sheriff Normand’s drunk buddy Dominick Imbornone”
