Oh No She Didn’t ! Woman Severs Husband’s Penis and…

Remember Lorena Bobbitt? Lorena was the Ecuador born wife who severed her husband’s penis as he slept in 1993. Lorena now has company in the category of penis severing.

Yes folks, it has happened again! By the way, this one tops the Bobbitt case.

It appears that a dispute over an “inappropriate relationship” may be the motive behind a Garden Grove woman who has been charged with cutting off her husband’s penis.

A law enforcement source who spoke on condition of anonymity in the ongoing case said the couple had argued earlier in the day and that the wife was angry at the husband over a relationship. Police said that when they confronted the woman, she said her husband “deserved it.”

Authorities had earlier alleged that the wife, Catherine Kieu Becker, got into an argument with her husband about “friends staying at the residence,” according to a statement by prosecutors.

On Wednesday, Orange County prosecutors charged the wife with two felony counts for allegedly cutting off her husband’s penis and throwing it in a garbage disposal after drugging him and tying him to a bed.

The couple who had been married for a year and half began divorce proceedings in May. The court record suggests that the husband initiated the divorce.

Becker, 48, faces one felony count each of torture and aggravated mayhem with sentencing enhancements for great bodily injury and personal use of a knife. If convicted on all counts, she faces a maximum sentence of life in prison with the possibility of parole.

She has been held without bail since her arrest Monday night. Her arraignment was scheduled for Wednesday in Westminster, where she is expected to plead not guilty.

Becker, a real estate broker, lived with her husband, identified by prosecutors only as John Doe, in a Garden Grove apartment.

The husband told police that his wife served him dinner and that he went to bed about 9 p.m. While he was sleeping, she “tied the victim’s legs and arms to the four corners of the bed with nylon ropes,” prosecutors said.

The victim told authorities that when he woke up, his wife pulled down his pants, “grabbing the victim’s penis and severing it with a knife.” She then took the penis to the kitchen and threw it in the garbage disposal, “turning it on and mutilating the organ.”

She then called 911. On arrival the officers who probably thought that they had seen everything, found penis-less John tied to a bed and bleeding from his crotch. Ouch!

John Doe was taken to UCI Medical Center, where he underwent emergency surgery, but the severed mangled organ pulled from the garbage disposal could not be reattached.

In addition to Lorena Bobbitt an Alaskan woman severed her boyfriend’s penis. In 2005, Kim Tran cut her boyfriend’s penis off and flushed it down the toilet. Authorities somehow managed to recover the member and reattach it. As you remember authorities searched a field to recover John Wayne Bobbitt’s penis. It was also reattached.

    Gil Scott Heron’s Life Was More Than A “B” Movie

    Gil Scott Heron

    The troubled life of Gil Scott Heron has faded to black. Gil Scott Heron’s life was more than a “B” movie.

    I met Gil during his days at Arista in the early 80′s. The tall lanky spoken word artist was on the Arista roster along with Aretha Franklin, Patrice Rushen, Phyllis Hyman and of course the incomparable Whitney Houston. During this time, Gil who was living in Chocolate City had come to a cross road in his life. It was the decade of the electronic music. Studio 54, was the happening place and rap was in its’ infancy. MTV had emerged and BET was also on the scene slowly killing the radio star.

    Cocaine was the drug of choice within the entertainment industry. The rich and pretty who partied like it was 1999 at Studio 54 were not strangers to powdered nose candy. Cocaine would eventually seduce Gil, taking him down the deep and dark dead end street of no return.

    Ronald Reagan was President, and Gil revealed his feelings for the “B” Movie actor in the following lyrics: “acted like an actor…Hollyweird. Acted like a liberal. Acted like General Franco when he acted like governor of California, then he acted like a republican” in a cut entitled “B” Movie. That track was not only poetic, but it was prophetic.

    When you look back, Gil’s vision was astounding. Perhaps his vision of the world was too much for him to take sober and therefore he decided to take the road that drove him to drugs.

    Unfortunately, Gil Scott Heron had spent much of the last two decades of his life battling drug addiction that lead him in and out of prison for possession and parole violations.

    Born in Chicago on April 1 1949, Gil Scott Heron was named after his father, Gilbert Heron, a Jamaican who had settled in America. Gilbert Heron was also a poet. However, his prowess at soccer brought him to the attention of talent scouts from Scotland. In the early 1950s Gilbert senior played soccer professionally for Celtic and Third Lanark, earning the nickname “the Black Arrow”, before returning to Chicago. It was there that he met Gil’s mother, Bobbie Scott, a librarian and an accomplished singer who had once performed with the New York Oratorial Society.

    Gil’s parents separated when he was two, and he was sent to live with Lillie Scott, his maternal grandmother in Jackson, Tennessee. Scott-Heron would credit his grandmother with being one of the primary influences on his life: “[She] raised me to not sit around and wait for people to guess what’s on your mind — I was gonna have to say it.”

    Cultivating his interest in music and literature, she bought him a second-hand piano from a local funeral parlor. She also introduced him to the writings of the Harlem Renaissance novelist and poet Langston Hughes, who utilized the rhythms of jazz in his poetry and who became a major influence.

    When Gil was 12 his grandmother died, and he moved to New York to be reunited with his mother, who brought up her son on her own. On the recommendation of his high school English teacher, Gil won a scholarship to the Ethical Culture Fieldston School, a private school. Afterwards he would matriculate to Lincoln University in Pennsylvania. Langston Hughes had once been a student at the predominantly black University.

    In his second year at Lincoln, he was given leave of absence to write a novel. Entitled the Vulture (1970), it was a thriller about ghetto life. He wrote the novel while working as a clerk at a dry cleaners. Upon graduation he published a second novel, The Nigger Factory (1971). That novel detailed campus unrest that was taking place in America.

    By now Scott-Heron had begun performing his poetry in coffee houses and jazz clubs, where he was approached by the jazz producer Bob Thiele who, as head of the Impulse label, had recorded such artists as John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins and Dizzy Gillespie, as well as being the co-writer, with George David Weiss, of Louis Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World.

    Thiele signed Scott-Heron to his own Flying Dutchman label, and released Small Talk at 125th and Lenox, a live recording of one of Scott-Heron’s club performances. The follow-up Pieces of Man brought him together on record for the first time with Brian Jackson, a keyboard-player, flautist and composer whom he had met at Lincoln University, and who would become his principal collaborator on nine albums.

    With Jackson, Scott-Heron refined an intoxicating hybrid of jazz, Latin and Afro idioms that established him in the vanguard of black American music in the 1970s. The success of a single version of The Bottle in 1974 led to his being signed to a major label, Arista. He enjoyed further chart success in 1976 with Johannesburg and, in 1978, with the anti-drug song Angel Dust. Gil penned these lyrics for angel Dust: “Please, children would you listen, Just ain’t where it’s at. You won’t remember what you’re missin’, but down some dead end streets, there ain’t no turnin’ back.”

    Not heeding his own words, Gil eventually found himself down that dead end street strung out on crack.

    In the mid 80′s Arista released him from the label. Gil would not record for 11 years. Spirits was his 14th album’ which dealt with the grueling hell of drug addiction,

    Mr. Heron had s huge fan base in D.C. where he performed regularly at Blues Alley in Georgetown. However, while he continued to tour, he became notoriously unreliable in showing up for his gigs.

    At the beginning of his drug use, many of us who knew and cared about him tried to no avail to get him off that dead end street before he went too far.

    Having a relative who was a substance abuser, I knew the only person who could save Gil was Gil.

    As he slid down further, people still reached out to pull him out of the drug abyss. Monique de Latour, a New Zealander photographer who met Scott-Heron in 1995 and lived with him for several years had hoped to shock him out of his addiction by photographing him when he was comatose on drugs. Monique would hang the pictures on the walls. However, Gil refused to look at them.

    In 2000 Scott-Heron was sentenced to 18 to 24 months of in-patient rehabilitation for possession of cocaine and two crack pipes, but given leave to complete a European tour. After failing even to turn up at a subsequent court hearing he was sentenced to between one and three years in prison. Released on parole, in 2003 he was again charged with possession of a controlled substance after cocaine he had hidden in the lining of his bag showed up on an airport x-ray. In 2006 he was sentenced to two to four years in a New York State prison for violating a plea deal on a drug possession charge by leaving a rehabilitation center. The reason given for the violation of his plea deal was that the clinic refused to supply Scott-Heron with HIV medication. This led to the presumption that he was HIV positive.

    Gil Scott Heron died on the afternoon of May 27, 2011, at St. Luke’s Hospital, New York City, after becoming sick on his return from a European trip.

    The prophetic poet was married to the actress Brenda Sykes, with whom he had a daughter named Gia. Following here father and grandfather, Gia Scott Heron is also a poet.

    Above is Gil’s “B” Movie. Take a look and see if you agree that it’s a timeless track which is so applicable today.

      Marijuana Smoking Weekend Visit With 14 Year Old Ends With Mom’s Arrest

      Delta Renee Tanner acknowledged giving her daughter marijuana and the bong to use.

      Delta Renee Tanner admits giving her daughter marijuana a bong to use.


      TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a Tampa woman let her 14-year-old daughter use marijuana and a bong during a weekend visit.

      The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office reports that the teen seemed impaired when she returned to her father’s home Sept. 14. Her father took her to the hospital for a drug test, and she tested positive for marijuana.

      Deputies say 35-year-old Delta Renee Tanner later acknowledged giving her daughter marijuana and the bong to use.

      Tanner was arrested Friday and charged with child neglect, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

      She was released from jail on $3,000 bail. Jail records did not list an attorney.

        Double In Death Row Trouble?

        Two 25-year-old brothers from Orlando, Fla., could become the first twins in the nation to be sentenced to death.

        “I’ve heard of brothers [on death row], and I’ve heard of fathers and sons, but not twins. Never,” said Richard Dieter, executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center, told the Orlando Sentinel. “That would be bizarre, I’d say, and most probably a first.”

        Identical twins Donte and Dante Hall (shown above Donta on the left), are accused of killing two people, Anthony Bernard Blount, 35, and Kison “Little Mule” Evans, 32. They were shot during a robbery three years ago at a house party in Eustis, Fla., according to the Orlando Sentinel.

        Donte was convicted in April by a separate jury, which voted 8-4 to sentence him to death. The judge is not bound by the jury’s recommendation, but must give it “great weight,”.

        Testimony began last week in Dante’s double-murder trial. However, it ended in a mistrial after the state’s key witness improperly suggested to the jury that she had passed a lie-detector test.

        “Any other witness it wouldn’t be a problem,” said John Spivey, defense lawyer for Dante Hall, 25.

        But Angel Glenn, 22, the stripper girlfriend of Hall’s identical twin brother Donte, admittedly helped to arrange the robbery that turned deadly Sept. 9, 2006, inside the “Valley,” a notorious drug and party house on Gottsche Street in Eustis.

        “This case hinges on Angel Glenn and the truth,” defense co-counsel Michael Graves said.

        Glenn won a reprieve from murder charges after agreeing to pass a polygraph and testify against the brothers. The lie-detector results — or the suggestion that she passed which could bolster her testimony in the eyes of the jury — are inadmissible.

        Defense attorneys for Dante have argued that he was not involved in the homicides and that “Donte’s crew” is to blame for the killings. Lawyers for both brothers have acknowledged the brothers were involved in dealing drugs, but Dante’s attorneys maintain that Donte was the violent twin.

          Jamie Foxx PCP Revelation

          Jamie Foxx recently revealed that he accidentally ingested PCP in college, and has suffered flashbacks from the incident ever since. Foxx was studying music at the United States International University in San Diego, at the time, when a fellow student slipped the dangerous hallucinogen into his drink as a prank.

          “I was drinking whiskey and it didn’t taste funny, so I had no idea. It took about 15 minutes and I knew something was wrong. I said to my roommate, ‘Something is going on, and I don’t know what it is, but I’m going to ride it out,’” the actor/singer/comedian explained in a recent interview with the UK Daily Mail.

          A friend rushed the near-comatose Foxx to the hospital immediately. Foxx recalls the friend’s care, “[he] stayed at the hospital with me. Then he took me back to the dorm and I was afraid of the dark and he would talk to me every night and calm me down and say stuff like, ‘You’re OK, the demons aren’t real.’ He saved my life.”

          Though it’s been over 20 years since the incident, the Academy Award winner claims he still suffers flashbacks. “It felt like all of my fears were coming true and I was going crazy. I read up on PCP after it happened. It leaves a fingerprint and you can’t get it out of your system. It happened to me when I was 18 and I had 11 months of harsh flashbacks, and then when I was 26 I had a flashback just like that [snaps his fingers] – and another one when I was 32, and that was the last one, but I always worry about it coming back.”

          Phencyclidine, a complex clip of the chemical name phenylcyclohexylpiperidine or PCP is known by a variety of street names such as love boat, lovely, wet, leak, angel dust or just dust. The drug which is used as an animal tranquilizer and embalming fluid is a dangerous drug, which has been linked to several brutal murders (including rapper Antron “Big Lurch” Singleton, who killed a woman and ate her lungs while under the influence of the drug), and suicides, due to its dis-associative, hallucinogenic properties.

          PCP was first tested after World War II as a surgical anesthetic Because of its adverse side-effects such as hallucination mania, delirium and disorientation, it was shelved until the 1950s. In 1963, it was patented by Parke-Davis and named Sernyl (referring to serenity), but was withdrawn from the market two years later because of side-effects. It was renamed Sernylan in 1967, and marketed as a veterinary
          Veterinary medicine anesthetic, but again discontinued. Its side-effects and long half-life
          Biological half-life (time the drug remains) in the human body made it unsuitable for medical applications. The long half life accounts for the flashbacks Jamie Foxx continued to experience.

          “How did it make me feel?” Foxx continued, “Like living in your worst nightmares. You’re afraid of the dark, afraid of things you see on the television, you feel that things are coming at you. I felt paranoid, and paranoia is craziness. It’s not good.”

          Look out for Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence, revisiting ‘In Living Color’ characters Sheneneh and Wanda in ‘Skank Robbers,’ coming soon. And kids, don’t put drugs in your friends’ drinks.
