A thoroughly nasty piece of work - they should have dropped him off the Dick Misener Bridge!

Women attack Good Samaritan during wild gas station fight over hot dogs in Akron, witness says (video)By Hannah Catlett April 15, 2019 at 7:09 PM EDT - Updated April 16 at 10:07 AMAKRON, OH (WOIO) - A dispute over hot dogs led to a violent, obscenity-laced attack at an Akron gas station Friday night.

Witnesses say a man stepped in to help a woman who was being jumped, and that’s when a group of women turned on him.

I know it is not Florida but in the vein.

Not forgetting that it was a young lady from Florida who shut down the Denver school system today when she went Columbine loco.

'Ere you go, I'll do the job myself.

It's a bit of low level animal abuse, with a bonus point for it being an alligator, this is in Florida, after all!

"Florida man caught on video hitting alligator, putting cigarette in its mouth. .... Detectives searched his phone March 28 and found three videos of Harris abusing an alligator."

I was trying to post an up to date puppy story in the earlier post but every time I leave this message board to copy more than one thing everything I've already written disappears. Autosave feature appears to work only when I don't really need it.

In short today's animal story involves a puppy, everyone loves a puppy story, and this one was abandoned at an intersection. Barstewards. That is all.

Open multiple tabs, then move between them, and/or post an incomplete post, then come back and edit/ add to it.

Must be this one.

There's a great quote in the story though:

""I want the person that did (this) in our jail. Anyone who would do this to an animal would certainly hurt a human, so we need to get them safely behind bars at the Brevard County Jail," Sheriff Ivey said.

So abandoning a puppy is an indicator for someone with a violent disposition, who may threaten or attack people, and they should be arrested and thrown into jail. .... However carrying a gun apparently isn't?

That works fine on the old Chromebook, which also doesn't have much of a problem with autosave (which just kicked in now ) this Android tablet won't play ball though. (Autosaved again, now it's taking the mickey. And again ). Sometimes it loses my drafted message when I open another tab and sometimes it doesn't, usually when (Autosaved) I haven't taken the precaution of copying it - which then makes it tricky to copy a link.
Bloddy thing has a mind of its own.

That was the story.

I thought the NRA had made this one clear, good guys carry guns because of all the psychos who carry car keys. One can make a right mess with a decent key....
