Chainsaw-wielding Florida city worker sets off police standoff in bizarre racist attack

John Ratcliff, a Clermont Public Works foreman, was reportedly in his backyard shouting racial epithets and waving a firearm towards his neighbor and her family just before she called the police around 1 a.m. The victim reportedly took video of the incident.

“This is going to be your last year here,” Ratcliff said before using his chainsaw to cut down the border fence between his and his neighbor’s property.

When police arrived, they found Ratcliff drinking a beer and refusing to comply with orders during a 20-minute stand off with police. According to News 6, Ratcliff told police to “suck my [expletive]” when they arrived at his property.

Ratcliff has been placed on paid leave from his job at public works, where he’s been employed since 2006. Clermont director of communication Tracy Jacim told News 6, “if an employee exhibits actions on or off the job that can negatively impact operations or the city’s reputation,” their actions can be subject to review.

LL poster wrote:Man calls 911 to report himself drunk driving

Florida authorities are sharing the details of an unusual 911 call on New Year's Eve, from a man who said he wanted to report himself drunk-driving.

Polk County Sheriff's officials say the dispatcher kept him talking while directing officers to the scene.

When the dispatcher asked Michael Lester where he was, he said, "I'm too drunk. I don't know where I'm at."

And when she asked what he'd been doing all night, he said "I don't know, driving around, trying to get pulled over, actually."

"I'm driving on the wrong side of the road," he said later.

Lester admitted drinking beers and swallowing methamphetamine. He also said he'd barely slept for several days.

VERO BEACH, Fla. —

A Vero Beach man is in jail accused of beating his girlfriend who has no arms or legs.

Patrick Moan, 37, said he was tired of being her primary caregiver and felt if he punched her and confessed to it, he would no longer have to take care of her and she would become the state's problem. He took his girlfriend to the entrance of a local Walmart where witnesses called police.

The victim said Moan beat her up twice a month, mainly when he has been drinking. In her condition, she was unable to call 911.

The couple has been dating for two years.

Moan is charged with domestic violence.

This one is pretty epic. A man convicted of a kiddie-porn problem sent a coded message to his mother on a jail phone, which was recorded and decoded by the authorities (maybe they didn't even need to bring in the NSA for this one). The cops claim that it was a request to his mom to hire a hit man to kill the judge in the case.

No word on how the authorities managed to crack the cipher. Perhaps the idiot was taped in a previous conversation telling mom "1 is for A, 2 is for B, etc."

I noticed that too. Presumably to preserve what was used as a defence to allow it to be raised at the appeal. :rolleye:

Florida House declares pornography as a health risk

Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Legislature is declaring pornography as a health risk.

The state’s House of Representatives approved the resolution by a voice vote on Tuesday. The resolution states a need for education, research and policy changes to protect Floridians, especially teenagers, from pornography.

Republican Rep. Ross Spano says there is research that finds a connection between pornography use and mental and physical illnesses, forming and maintaining intimate relationships and deviant sexual behavior. Spano is also a candidate for attorney general.

Democratic Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith asked Spano why there was an immediate need to pass the resolution and countered that there are more important bills and topics that should be taken up by the Legislature

Whip's linked page at the Miami Herald includes these links, which suggest that the Herald understands its local population:
Video shows Florida dad starting fight with son and other teen
Man steals vehicle with baby inside, drops child off at gas station
Cops suspected he shoplifted an iPhone. Then they saw his U.S. Marshals pin and badge.
He blew through a stop sign and looked ‘nervous.’ Then deputies searched his car.
Video shows a dad start a fight between his son and another teen. Then dad joins in
Two teens went into the woods with a baseball bat — and only one came out alive, cops say

If he is a convicted domestic batterer federal law prohibits him from carrying.
Edit: http://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/browa ... story.html

Kennedy was ordered to be held on $1,000 bond when he had a hearing in first-appearance court Monday afternoon. He has served time in state prison for prior convictions for delivering oxycontin, burglary and assault on a law enforcement officer, according to prosecutor Eric Linder.

Kennedy, who is unemployed, spoke on his own behalf, telling Broward County Judge Kim Theresa Mollica, “I feel the charging document has insufficient facia elements … it is neither a tomb nor a monument.”

Mollica looked up the state statute and disagreed with Kennedy, saying the law also protected a memorial for the dead or burial artifacts. :shock: Lady judge has a law book or computer with laws on it!!!!!!!
