Illinois Mom Accused of Shooting Dead Man Who Refused to Kiss Her

A 28-year-old woman in Illinois shot and killed a man earlier this week in bizarre love triangle dispute, according to authorities.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Claudia Resendiz-Florez was staying with two pals—James Jones and his girlfriend—at their home in the city of Rolling Meadows when the incident unfolded on Thursday night.

Prosecutors in Cook County said that the trio were having a drink together when Resendiz-Florez allegedly asked Jones for a kiss. Jones declined because he had a girlfriend who was sitting right next to him. He then kissed his girlfriend in front of Resendiz-Florez, prompting an envious Resendiz-Florez to ask the girlfriend for a kiss, prosecutors said during a bond hearing. She declined, too.

When Jones once again refused to kiss her, an enraged Resendiz-Florez grabbed his gun that he had tucked between two couch cushions and aimed it at him, prosecutors said.

Jones tried to push Resendiz-Florez’s arm down as she pulled the safety off and put her finger on the trigger but the gun went off, striking Jones once in the chest.

His girlfriend called 911 and when officers arrived at the scene Resendiz-Flores allegedly admitted to shooting Jones. She was charged with first-degree murder and will be back in court on Tuesday.

Resendiz-Flores’s public defender Courtney Smallwood said during the bond hearing that her client is married but separated from her husband and is the sole caretaker for three young children. She disputed suggestions that Resendiz-Flores lived with the couple, insisting she lived at her family home in Des Plaines.

Elementary Teacher Accused of Keeping Weed Edibles in Student Prize Box

A South Carolina elementary school teacher has been accused of allegedly keeping weed edibles in her student reward box, according to Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon.

Twenty-seven-year-old Victoria Farish Weiss was charged with possession of a Schedule 1 drug, WYFF reported Friday.

Following a search of the woman’s home, investigators reportedly found packs similar to those the student picked from the box.

As of Wednesday, Weiss was no longer employed with the Lexington School District One, district officials said.

“The safety of our students is our top priority,” Superintendent Greg Little stated.

“It is unacceptable for a staff member to potentially threaten the wellbeing of a child. We will continue to work to ensure all of our children have a safe environment to learn and grow. Rocky Creek Elementary has a sterling reputation which will not be tarnished by the actions of one person,” he continued.

Koon explained the edibles were cannabis-based food in the form of candy.

“They’re often packaged in wrappers and bags with logos and colors that look similar to traditional candy brands. While they are available in other states and online, they’re illegal in South Carolina,” Koon said.

Weiss turned herself in to authorities on Friday and is currently being held at the Lexington County Detention Center.

Home invasion suspect who fled house gets lost in Northern Michigan woods, calls 911

An intruder who a woman briefly thought was her husband was arrested after he called the police on himself in Northern Michigan.

According to troopers from the Michigan State Police Cadillac Post, the bizarre ordeal began when they responded to a breaking and entering complaint at a residence on Westridge Drive in Williamsburg at 7:-5 p.m. on Oct. 6.

The homeowner reported she was watching television in the living room when she saw a man enter the room who she thought was her husband. She screamed when she realized it was not her husband, who quickly came downstairs and told the man to leave, police said.

The trooper searched the area and located the suspect, 43-year-old Kevin William Tighe from Williamsburg, in the backyard of his parents’ home nearby. When the trooper attempted to speak with Tighe, he fled into the woods.

A canine team was called in but was unable to locate him. Later that evening Tighe called 911 to report he was lost, police said.

Dispatch informed troopers the last known coordinates of Tighe. When troopers arrived, Tighe flagged them down and he was taken into custody and lodged in the Grand Traverse County Jail.

Tighe was arraigned in the 86th District Court in Grand Traverse County on Oct. 14. He was charged with breaking and entering without permission and resisting and obstructing police.

He was given a $1,000 bond. His next scheduled court appearance is on Oct. 26.

Driver Fined After Traffic Camera Thinks Pedestrian’s Shirt Is a License Plate

Government incompetence at its finest.

he purpose of automating any task is to reduce cost and labor. This is one of the reasons the world is working so hard on robotaxis, and why traffic enforcement in large cities has moved to license-plate reading traffic cameras. In both cases, accuracy and reliability seem to be the biggest problems.

David and Paula Knight found this out the hard way when they opened a letter containing a fine levied against their Volkswagen Transporter van, which had allegedly committed a traffic violation more than 120 miles away from their home in Surrey, England. But upon closer inspection, the couple noticed that the camera had made a mistake, and that the photographic evidence included in the letter wasn’t of their van, or any vehicle at all.

As it turns out, the traffic camera had actually snapped a photo of a pedestrian. The woman in the photo was walking in the bus lane, an offense that would normally result in a driver receiving a fine. The traffic camera recognized her novelty shirt’s text, “KNITTER,” which was partially obscured by the strap of her bag.

Paula bought her husband David a personalized number plate for their Transporter that reads “KN19 TER,” a nod to David Knight’s nickname Knighter, which he says is the name that all of his friends know him as. Apparently, this was similar enough to match the Volkswagen’s license plate and trigger the false-positive.

Officials in Bath who issued the fine via the automated system say that the incident occurred in June, and while the fine was originally $83, it had gone up to $124 because the citation went unanswered. Fortunately, when the Knights contacted the local government office to alert them of the error, the person taking the call supposedly began to reprimand Paula Knight for driving in a bus lane before looking a the photo. She then “burst out laughing,” after seeing the mistake.

“Obviously no one had looked at the picture and it had been computer-generated,” said David Knight in a statement to the Daily Mail, “We’ve been laughing about it a lot. There was no way I was going to pay for a woman walking in a bus lane with a funny T-shirt on!”

Fortunately, the BBC says that the ticket was thrown out. And while the Knights have had some closure, the woman in the KNITTER shirt still remains at large—hopefully laughing just as hard at the mixup.

A former US Air Force airman who showed up to crime scenes with an AR-15 pleaded guilty to impersonating federal agents

Lastly, the stupid is very strong with this one.

A 23-year-old US Air Force veteran pleaded guilty Tuesday to impersonating a federal agent after admitting he’d made a traffic stop, offered to solve a crime, and even showed up armed to crime scenes, court documents show.

Marlon De’Adrain Priest from Valdosta, Ga. is guilty of two counts of impersonating an officer and an employee of the United States and is facing up to three years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count.

A judge will sentence Priest in January.

In April last year, Priest, who had been discharged from the Air Force a little over a year earlier for misuse of a military credit card, made a traffic stop, identifying himself as an undercover federal agent at Moody Air Force Base.

Priest was armed with a Glock pistol, wearing a bullet-proof vest, and driving a vehicle with police lights and a public announcement (PA) system, according to Evan Seago, the individual who Priest pulled over. Priest called the stop into 911, identifying himself as an undercover agent.

In August, he pretended to be a Special Agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigations, though that would not be the last time, his plea agreement, obtained by Insider, states.

In September 2020, the Moody Air Force Base Office of Special Investigations contacted the FBI to let them know about Priest, who had been impersonating an OSI agent. The Remerton Police Department had tipped off the base after seeing Priest at crime scenes on a number of occasions.

One time, Priest, who was driving a white Chevrolet sedan with police lights, showed up at a crime scene of a shooting incident in a bullet-proof vest with an AR-15 rifle, court documents show.

When Remerton Police Department Investigator Carl Dudley met Priest at the scene, he was grateful to have what he thought was another law enforcement officer at what could have been a dangerous crime scene.

Over time, Dudley became suspicious of Priest and decided to check in with the Moody Air Force Base Office of Special Investigations, which reported that Priest was not one of their agents.

In October of last year, Priest told a fraud victim he was an FBI agent and charged her $85 to take her case. Days later, he accused the victim of making false statements, threatened to press charges, and demanded another $150, which the victim paid.

Chris Hacker, Special Agent in Charge of FBI Atlanta, said in a statement that “impersonating a federal officer for any reason puts the public and law enforcement officers at risk, especially when a firearm is used,” adding that “the FBI is committed to keeping the public safe from scam artists like Priest, who undermine legitimate police encounters that happen every day.”

Acting US Attorney Peter Leary said “Priest created a false appearance of authority and power to scam and intimidate his victims,” stressing that “impersonating a federal agent is a serious crime that will not be tolerated.”

    1st.

    That’s a long list of stupid today. Rather sad to say it’s all not fiction. No wonder outer space aliens haven’t made contact.

    • KoB says:

      Old tanker, that’s why aliens do that whole anal probing thing, they’re trying to figure our sh^t out (ht 2 the AoI).

      Again, can’t fix stoopid, but you can be entertained by it.

  2. USAFRetired says:

    I think we know what he bought with the Govt credit card.

    “….the FBI is committed to keeping the public safe from scam artists….”

    Yep. The Gooberment hates competition.

  4. Hack Stone says:

    Looking at the mug shot of Claudia Resendiz-Florez, Hack Stone would also decline kissing her. She has the perfect face for the radio.

  5. Commissar says:

    Automated traffic cameras are unethical revenue generators. Especially when street lights are specifically timed to cause cars to be caught in intersections during light changes…which has been proven to be happening in several municipalities.

    • Fyrfighter says:

      Yet democrats are huge fans of them.. It’s almost like there’s a pattern here…

      • rgr769 says:

        D-rat pols, most of whom have never had a job with a non-government funded entity, love anything that picks the pockets of others. If you are going to piss away other people’s
        money, you have to come up with inventive ways to confiscate other people’s money.

    • Hack Stone says:

      Washington DC politicians said that their speed cameras were installed for safety, not as a revenue source. When the pandemic hit and a majority of the workers in The National Capital Region started telecommuting, the flow of money to the DC coffees went from a firehouse to a trickle. Then DC complained that they did not have the money to find all of their programs. Good thing they were not counting on those speed cameras to supplement their budget.
