Texas man shoots puppy that pooped on his lawn — and is met with gunfire from dog owner’s friend

Published

on

A Texas man gunned down a puppy that had wandered into his yard — and then he hit the ground to avoid gunshots fired by the dog owner’s friend.

Joe Ramirez was not wounded in the return fire, but both he and the friend were arrested on felony charges, reported KENS-TV.

The 37-year-old Ramirez told police he grabbed a shotgun Wednesday in frustration after a neighbor’s puppy repeatedly came into the yard of his San Antonio home, ate cat food and defecated.

He told investigators he thought the gun contained blanks, and Ramirez insisted he meant only to scare the puppy after trying to shoo it away.

The dog owner, however, said she heard a gunshot, followed by the sound of a dog yelping, so she went outside to investigate.

The neighbor told police that she saw Ramirez standing over her dog and shoot the animal at close range.

That’s when the woman’s friend opened fire on Ramirez and his roommate, police said.

Neither of them were wounded in the shooting.

Published

Morrissey came out for the anti-Islam political party in England, and has run into problems about his political claims ever since. As noted by Consequence of Sound, "it doesn’t help that he says thing like Halal certifiers support ISIS, of course."

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
