Man shoots himself and tries to blame it on a black man — before getting busted by his own mother

Published

on

A 20-year-old Arkansas man this week shot himself and tried to blame it on a random black man — but his lies quickly fell apart when he was confronted by his own mother.

Local news station WTVM 9 reports that a 20-year-old man from Jonesboro, Arkansas told a law enforcement officer that he’d been shot with his own gun after a struggle with a black man who had tried to take the gun away from him.

The man, who had been admitted to St. Bernards Medical Center to be treated for the wound, told the officer that a “black male wearing all black ran up to him and pulled a gun from his hip area and pointed it at him.” In the ensuing struggle over the gun, the man said, the black man had fired off a shot and hit him in the hand.

However, the man’s mother knew that this story was complete fiction, as it turns out the man had simply accidentally shot himself. After confronting him about his falsehoods, he eventually went to police and admitted that he made up the entire story.

In reality, the man shot himself after he started playing with a random gun that he happened to find on the ground, and his mother explained to police that he “was scared to tell the truth because he doesn’t want to go to jail.”

Ivanka tweeted a quote from her husband at the "Peace to Prosperity workshop today in Bahrain" and urged her Twitter followers to watch his full speech.

Kushner's plan was rejected by the Palestinians before even being released.

The Navy accidentally nominated a convicted child sex predator to be a future department head

Published

On Tuesday, the Navy Times reported that Lt. j.g. Michael D. McNeil was nominated, along with several other junior service officers, as eligible to be a future department head by the Navy Personnel Command.

This would be somewhat surprising, given that McNeil is currently serving a 10-year sentence in federal prison in Texarkana, Texas, for soliciting sex from a 12-year-old deaf girl.

The reason why McNeil was listed as under consideration is that the Navy had not yet updated his records with the "civil action report" noting his conviction, which was handed down in March. Navy records still listed him as active duty and assigned to the guided-missile destroyer Lassen when the list was drafted.
