Moron of the Week Award #16
April 7, 2010 by admncc
After a short absence, the “Moron of the Week Award” is back. So as usual, read the summaries, look at the news links and decide who the bigger idiot is.
Nominee #1 – Shaun Rogers. The Cleveland Browns’ nose tackle who was arrested last week for having a loaded gun in his carry-on baggage at Hopkins International Airport. He apparently “forgot” that it was there. He’s also the guy who was “suspended for four games in 2006 for taking a banned substance to control his weight.” Additionally, “in 2007, an exotic dancer claimed he inappropriately touched her at a club in Detroit, but an investigation cleared him.” You can read more here.
Nominee #2 – Facebook Woman. Denise New, of Arkadelphia, AR, is being sued by her son for harassment over some Facebook posts. She said she wanted to know what he was doing. He’s 16 years old and said she’s harassing and slandering him. You can read more here.
Nominee #3 – Daddy Porn. Jack Buckner is accused of showing his eight and nine-year-old daughters pornography on the family’s computer. Jack claims he did it for “educational purposes.” Here’s the kicker – Texas law allows this “if there’s a consenting parent in the room.” You can read more about the incident here and about the Texas law here.
Nominee #4 – Dumb Lawmaker. I am personally nominating the State of Texas for having a law which allows nominee #3. It’s legal loopholes like this which potentially allow sick individuals to be around children. And that, to me, is unacceptable.
Enjoy the discussion and let us know who should receive this week’s award. And thanks to NeoConDon for two of the story leads.
