  • West Memphis Baby Shower Brawl is the name of my Lisa Marie Presley cover band
  • That was horrible.
    Do they have people who write these things or do they let a computer transcribe part of their newscast, throw  SUGGEST A CORRECTION at the bottom, and let the reading public take the place of an editor?
  • Prose is dead.
  • And the cop said "Y'all" in a West Memphis drawl
    And it turned into a baby shower brawl.
  • Other than the part about an off-duty cop being already on scene, this is a common thing in Flint.  Including the hanging up on the caller part.

    Seriously, first assault I witnessed after moving to Flint was a neighbor getting jumped right outside my place by two men.  I didn't have a phone of any sort, so I snuck out, and made sure he made it to his place, where we then called 911, several times.  They told us they weren't coming and hung up each time.  They never showed.  It really hasn't changed.  A couple months ago, I listened to a dispatcher finally called for an officer to respond to a fight with a knife, 4 hours after the call was made.  Dispatcher even told the officer the call was 4 hours old.  I doubt anything was done, who would stick around for 4 hours to get arrested for threatening someone with a knife?
  • The story about the pantless fight at a local high school was better...

    "My pants is too tight."

  • Sailing Starflower: Prose is dead.


    This.

    The real crime is the writing. Holy shiat.
  • What's the deal with getting a hotel room for a baby shower or birthday party?  I've seen quite a bit of that recently.

    Is that so the 'hosts' don't have to deal with cleaning up before/after the event?
  • I live in a world where "baby shower brawls" are a thing.

    /whoopee.
  • She stalked the women and followed her into her room.  The officer deserves to lose her badge, she should be in jail and should get sued and lose possession of her double wide.

    So...crazy woman tries to disrupt a decorating party for a baby shower, crazy woman gets violent, off-duty police officer steps in and subdues crazy woman and you want off-duty strung up.

    Yep, I have spotted the criminal that hates police because their life is unfair and they had what was probably a justifiable run-in with the law and it didn't go their way.

    If you have a large number of people at an event it's easier on everyone if you rent a "ballroom" or "conference room" at a hotel.  More bathrooms, catered food, and very convenient for out of town guests.

    Then, of course, there's the "drink your face off and you don't have to drive home" angle in the case where they rent an actual guest room as well but TFA doesn't say anything about the charged staying at the hotel.
  • I would have a comment on this story, but I still am chuckling about the phrase "baby shower brawl".
  • After reading that page, I still have no idea what happened.
  • This is how poor people live.

    Someone was threatened, someone said they would "whoop this pregnant b*tch ass," that's about all we know. Oh, and they were a Clarion hotel guest

    For some reason, I read that in Stewie Griffin's voice

    It was a terribly written article.  How much did you pay to read it?  Would you have paid any money to read a proofed version?

    /the enemy is us.
  • I see stories like this and wonder why the police don't shoot more people

    That caption could be used for any awful thing you can imagine and many that you can't.
  • Conference rooms, catered food, and ballrooms...

    Things not found at West Memphis hotels.

    If I'm not mistaken, hotel mentioned in article is kinda fancy. By fancy, i mean closer to the Waffle House than it is to the truck stop.

    I-40 Protip: refuel in W. Memphis to avoid stopping in regular Memphis.
  • In Sam L Jackson voice...

    Crazy motherfarking people need to be put into crazy motherfarking asylums because until all crazy motherfarking people are locked up they will continue to create shootings, drugs, babies, traffic jams, genders, obnoxious rules, tweets, and speakingtou
