No punishment too severe for these monsters

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Investigators say a San Antonio-area couple punished their three young children by forcing one to brush her teeth with cat feces, using a shock collar as punishment and beating them with a thorny switch.

Thirty-two-year-old James Chalkley and 22-year-old Cheyanne Chalkley were being held Tuesday on charges of injury to a child.

James Chalkley is the father of a 3-year-old boy and two girls who are 5 and 10. Cheyanne Chalkley is their stepmother.

Arrest warrants show a teacher noticed bruising on the 5-year-old in September. Investigators say interviews with child-protective workers revealed the extent of their punishments.

The 5-year-old told authorities that her father used a dog's shock collar on her that left green marks on her skin.

Jail records indicate no attorneys have been appointed for the Chalkleys.

Have you ever ordered something on Ebay and got the wrong thing?

My wife recently dropped her good electronic cigarette and broke it. I should have known better but ordered a replacement that shipped from China. Well three weeks later a package arrived via air mail no less and instead of the item I ordered instead we get a vaporizer for cannabis wax! I tried to return it. They have refunded my money and said they don't want the damn thing back. Weird.

Taking groups of kids from house to house on Halloween is trying

Might I suggest my solution for the past 14 years I have lived here.

Get a bottle or tow of good Bourbon, or in my case a bottle of Bourbon and a bottle of Scotch. Give the kids their candy, and express you sympathy and understanding to the adults and offer a shot.

Needless to say our house is very popular.

Us Pennsylvanians must not be smoking and drinking enough

Time to tax a new sin.

"Gov. Tom Wolf on Monday affixed what he hopes will be a final patch on a $2.3 billion budget deficit.

The governor made the announcement during an appearance at the monthly Pennsylvania Press Club luncheon in Harrisburg.

The good news is that by accepting the plan passed by the state legislature this month, Wolf can guarantee that $32.0 billion in state obligations to public schools, universities and a variety of human services agencies will be met.

The cost is two-fold:

The state has doubled-down on its investment in the commercial gambling market, with new expectations of revenue from Internet-based games and a second string of casinos scattered around the Commonwealth.

A significant portion of a $350 million or so annual funding stream from the 1998 multi-state settlement with the nation's major tobacco companies will be diverted for at least the next 20 years from the health and research programs it has traditionally supported into the general fund.

Lawmakers and Wolf had been working to close out the budget gap since July."

This is the problem when you don't have a single person Western enough in your employment

To recognize a cheeseburger.

"The CEO of Google promised the company would 'drop everything' to fix a glaring error that was pointed out on its cheeseburger emoji.

On Saturday, author Thomas Baekdal tweeted a screenshot of Apple's and Google's respective cheeseburger emojis showing the different cheese placement.

He wrote as a caption: 'I think we need to have a discussion about how Google's burger emoji is placing the cheese underneath the burger, while Apple puts it on top.'

The viral tweet caught the attention of CEO Sundar Pichai, who wrote in response on Sunday: 'Will drop everything else we are doing and address on Monday if folks can agree on the correct way to do this!'"

One of these things is not like the other...

It's shit like this that makes us hate politicians

Ulster County, N.Y. legislator Jennifer Schwartz Berky (D) – who is up for reelection Nov. 7, put on quite an act for a local police officer Gary Short after she was pulled her over for driving 43 mph in a 30 mph zone while talking on her cell phone.

A 26-minute video of the May 2017 incident was released last Tuesday during an Ulster Town Board meeting, and features a meltdown of epic proportions.

After Berky failed to impress officer Short by casually mentioning “I work for the county government, I’m a county legislator,” she immediately shifted into the victim role and proceeded to have histrionic tantrum. “Please don’t give me a ticket, I’m broke,” Berky cried, adding “I’m completely broke, and if you tell people, it’s going to hurt me. I’m totally broke. I made $20,000 last year. Please don’t give me a ticket.”

Officer Short – a consummate professional throughout the encounter, returns to his squad car to run Berky’s information, when Berky gets out of her car and fakes a panic attack, while on the phone, claiming PTSD.

And this is why it's a bad idea for mixed gender nuclear sub crews

In one of the worst scandals to hit the Navy, the crew from HMS Vigilant – which carries the Trident nuclear deterrent – were sent home and kicked out of the service after the class A drug was found in their blood.

They are alleged to have had drug-fuelled parties while the submarine was docked in the US to pick up nuclear warheads. One man is said to have had sex with a prostitute in a swimming pool.

It can also be revealed that the submarine's second-in-command, Lieutenant Commander Michael Seal, 36, has been removed amid claims of an extra-marital affair with a female engineering officer – Lieutenant Hannah Litchfield, 27. She too has been taken off the vessel.

The submarine was already embroiled in controversy over an alleged affair between its captain, Commander Stuart Armstrong, 41, and Sub-Lieutenant Rebecca Edwards, 25. Again, both have been removed from duty on board.

The submarine's captain and his second-in-command are the only officers on board with access to a grey safe which contains a 'letter of last resort' from the Prime Minister. It details guidance and orders to be followed should the UK be attacked with nuclear weapons.

You've got to be kidding me

PITTSBURGH - Pittsburgh police are calling in the Federal Bureau of Investigation after finding a cord resembling a noose outside a home in Regent Square.

Zone 4 posted on its Facebook page about the incident on South Braddock Avenue.

"Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Zone 4
20 hours ago
We are investigating an incident in which a USB cord was hung on a tree outside of a residence in the 800 block of S. Braddock Ave. The cord was fashioned in a manner that resembles a noose. We want the community to know that we are working with the FBI as we move forward with this investigation."

Channel 11 spoke with Jamelia Morgan, the woman who found the noose outside her home.

She's a civil rights attorney who just moved there five months ago.

She found the noose on a tree just after 5 p.m. Tuesday.

It was a black USB cord wrapped like a noose. Channel 11 obtained the images of the noose, but our newsroom has chosen not to share them.

Pittsburgh police tell us they are investigating, along with the FBI.

Morgan tells Channel 11 she is using this as a point to talk about racism in Pittsburgh.

"We've learned since this happened that these are not isolated incidents. This has happened before to other people, and we have the privilege of having this platform and we're going to use this as a launching point to talk about racism here in Pittsburgh," Morgan said.
