Stupid people of the week

| September 4, 2022

A day late again. I appreciate the thoughts and prayers from you all this past week. Hopefully things can start returning to more normal soon.

$480,000 awarded to inmate who suffered miscarriage after sheriff’s deputies stopped at Starbucks while driving her to hospital

Oops

Southern California’s Orange County has agreed to pay $480,000 to an inmate who was pregnant but suffered a miscarriage after sheriff’s deputies stopped at a Starbucks while driving her to a hospital. Sandra Quinones, who is no longer in custody, alleged in a federal lawsuit that sheriff’s staff delayed treatment after her water broke in the jail.

County supervisors on Tuesday unanimously approved the payment, but Quinones must formally accept the settlement before it becomes final, the Orange County Register reported.

“That’s a very good result for someone badly treated in the jail,” her lawyer, Dick Herman, told the Register. “This poor woman, she’s in jail having a miscarriage and, instead of calling an ambulance, they take her to the hospital in a patrol car and the cops stop at Starbucks while she’s bleeding.”

Herman said Quinones is homeless and mentally ill.

“The Orange County jail is capable of sinking to the lowest depths,” Herman told the Los Angeles Times. “Unfortunately this is not the only occasion.”

The lawsuit said no jail staff responded for two hours after Quinones pushed a call button in her cell when her water broke on March 28, 2016.

Then instead of being put in an ambulance, Quinones was given a ride to a hospital in a patrol car, but not until deputies stopped for coffee, the lawsuit alleged.

Quinones was hospitalized, but the fetus did not survive, according to court filings.

Sheriff’s officials declined to comment on the settlement.

The lawsuit accused deputies of acting with “deliberate indifference” toward Quinones’ civil rights and her medical condition, the Register said.

The lawsuit was initially dismissed by a federal court in 2020 but reinstated by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 2021, the Times reported.

“She doggedly pursued this case, including all of its ups and downs,” Herman told the newspaper. “This was a long, hard fight. We’re glad that this reached a successful conclusion.”

Florida woman tries to beat DUI test by Irish folk dancing — and fails

A Florida woman pulled over for alleged drunken driving performed an Irish folk dance for cops in an attempt to prove her sobriety, video shows.

Amy Harrington, 38, of Madeira Beach, rear-ended another vehicle about a mile from her home on April 27, cops told WFLA. When Pinellas County deputies arrived, officers said her eyes were bloodshot and watery.

Harrington tried to walk a straight line during a sobriety test along a parking space marker when she gave up and started dancing, the video, which emerged Saturday, showed.

She “struggled to follow instructions, and was unsteady on her feet almost falling,” according to arrest documents obtained by the outlet.

Harrington, clad in a black skirt and white top, danced wildly in the footage, before she was asked to walk the line.

“Do you want to pay attention so I can give you the instructions?” a deputy administering the test asked.

“Yeah, well, you sound like my ballet coach, so, sounds about right,” Harrington answered before busting a move, according to the footage.

“That wasn’t good,” the officer quipped.

She proceeded to break into “multiple ballet and Irish folk dance moves,” police said, and can be seen waving her arms and dancing around the line in front of the unimpressed cop.

She later refused testing — the second time she refused to take a sobriety test after a separate incident in Pinellas County in 2019, officials said.

In the end, Harrington hoofed her way into a driving under the influence charge, according to the report.

Thank You, Mason, for sharing the stories as well as giving us an update on your family situation.

Yes. And I love how they both have appropriated Army officer rank shoulder boards. This is the first time I have seen them on a cop uniform.

They were standard on Atlanta PD dress uniforms for several years. It’s a fad that caught on, it appears.

Speaking of stupid people:

https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-calls-putin-smart-praises-xi-ruling-china-iron-fist-2022-9

You all still express fealty and admiration for this guy. And then wonder why people are saying the MAGA movement is a threat to democracy.

The guy says the quiet part out loud and his cult cheers.

Xi is famously and notoriously ignorant. He has an entire propaganda effort just trying to tamp down and counter the widespread awareness of how he is a fucking moron. Complete with fake degrees being awarded from prestigious Chinese universities he never attended.

He was one of the peasant soldiers of the cultural revolution era. He was decidedly and militantly anti intellectual and anti education. He is a member of the Chinese lost generation. Ignorant, uneducated, and ideologically pure communist authoritarians.

And Trump openly admires him.

Putin has already proven what a craven idiot he is.

Yet, still, Trump admires him.

Irony. Do you speak it?

Commissar:

What about THIS person?

IF you had to choose between Trump and Biden (for scenario sake, i.e. the next Presidential election), who would YOU pick?

Thank You!

I’d like to nominate the 1st Emperor of the Trash Heap, Josef Rottenrobin Bidet, Uriner as an honorary SPotW.

He’s pissing off everybody, and as much as this makes me happy, his actions will bring even more pain.

I don’t know who Royce White is, but I like what’s hes got to say:
