Allegedly Drunk Florida Men Post Video With Endangered Owl And Claim They’re Going To Eat It

Owl-drunk

(PCM) After a video surfaced online with two men driving through West Palm Beach, Florida holding a federally protected owl on their laps, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission has launched an investigation into the incident.

In the video, a Great-Horned Owl can be seen in the vehicle with the two men. It was posted to Facebook on March 16th and the comment attached to the video read “3am in the morning we are drunk and we are high. We bout to take this thing home and eat it up just found it on the road.”

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission are investigating the video and claim that also in the video you can see one of the two men pick up a bottle, presumably alcohol, drink it while they talk about being drunk or high. The Commission says that the type of owl is actually extremely dangerous and is protected by both Federal and State law.

The two men, if caught, could be facing felony charges for even having the owl in their possession, let alone if any harm actually came to the animal. Everyone wants to know where the owl is now and that it is safe. State officials claim they were able to make contact with the man in the video and he informed them that he and his friend had let the owl go the next day.

The owl may have been injured initially after being hit by a car and official still worry that it could be out there somewhere wandering around still injured.

Utah Bill Permits Execution By Firing Squad

Firing-squad1

(PCM) Execution by firing squad is a cause of death that one would have assumed has not been practiced in a good number of years, however there is still an active bill in the state of Utah that permits this particular style of execution.

The state of Utah previously banned firing squad executions back in 2004, however the last one that occurred on record in the state was only back in 2010. Utah Governor Gary R. Herbert just recently approved a bill to bring back execution by firing squad only in the event that proper drugs for a lethal injection can not be obtained.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Herbert explains the decision by saying “We regret anyone ever commits the heinous crime of aggravated murder to merit the death penalty and we prefer to use our primary method of lethal injection when such a sentence is issued. However, when a jury makes the decision and a judge signs a death warrant, enforcing that lawful decision is the obligation of the executive branch.”

It seems that there is currently a nationwide shortage of lethal injection drugs, so that is another reason why Gov. Herbert has approved the firing squad bill despite it being a both outdated and quite gruesome. The firing squad execution would only come into play if the prison could not obtain the lethal injection drugs 30 days prior to the scheduled execution date for the inmate.

Fake Gun Store Set Up As A Way To Prevent Gun Violence

Guns-PSA1

(PCM) A fake gun shop was set up in New York City last week by a group called States United to Prevent Gun Violence. The group feels very strongly about their stance on the importance of teaching people gun safety and filmed a PSA inside the fake gun shop with unsuspecting customers.

The fake shop was stocked to the brim with over 100 realistic looking prop guns, as well as, hidden camera and an actor playing the salesman. The actor who portrayed the salesman told the would-be gun buyers so pretty horrific stories about specific crimes that each of the certain types of guns had be involved with in the past. The actor/salesman included stories about homicides, suicides, accidental shootings and more.

The fake stores main target was first time gun buyer and it was set up for two days while the social experiment was conducted. The group sales that they felt there was a need to film the PSA, as many people in this country feel that keeping a firearm in the home somehow makes that home a safer place. However, studies contradict those opinions and show that there is more increased risk of death or injury by actually having the firearm in the house.

You can watch the States United to Prevent Gun Violence PSA below, which now has over 3 million views on YouTube:

Man Terrorizing An Ohio Neighborhood By Defecating On Vehicles

Mystery-pooper1

(PCM) Known to residents of a neighborhood in Akon, Ohio as the “mystery pooper”, police are on the search for a man who has been defecating on at least 19 vehicles in the area.

Sources claim that the man, who appears to be in this late-40’s, has actually been pooping on vehicles around the neighborhood at night since back in 2012. Many residents initially felt that some kind of animal was responsible, however the man was eventually caught in the act by a resident who set up a time lapse camera.

One poor resident even claims that his car was defecated on not only once, but six times in total. This has got to be a case of an angry neighbor, as it appears that the “mystery pooper” is only targeting one specific neighborhood and no other incidents have been reported in the area.

The “mystery pooper” is still at large and if caught he could be facing charges of criminal mischief if flushed out by police.

Over $80,000 Dollars Worth Of Cheese Stolen In Florida

Mozzarella1

(PCM) Of all the random things in the world to steal, it is quite surprising that someone would heist a truck trailer carrying about $85,000 worth of mozzarella cheese.  The incident occurred in at a truck stop in Summerfield, Florida, where a refrigerated trailer carrying the cheese was in router from Michigan to the Hungry Howies Pizza distribution center in Lakeland, Florida.

The trailer was left in the truck stop parking lot by the driver and his girlfriend while it was being checked on by a mechanic. When they went back to check on the trailer in the lot, that is when they noticed that it was missing. Authorities also claim that at 2007 Kensworth hauler was also stolen from the lot, so it appears that is what the thieves used to hoist the trailer containing the cheese. According to the company there was enough cheese inside to make thousands of pizza pies.

Robin Thicke And Pharrell Williams Found Guilty Of Copyright Infringement

Blurred-Lines2

(PCM) Many people have noted the striking similarities between the hit Robin Thicke song “Blurred Lines” which was produced by Pharrell Williams and the late Marvin Gaye song “Got To Give It Up”. Apparently, 12 jurors felt that those similarities were enough to find the pair guilty of copyright infringement and award Gaye’s family the amount of $7.4 million in damages.

This case is now making waves within the music community, as there is cause for concern over the fact that if a songwriter is able to draw inspiration from another it could possibly be considered copyright infringement even it it is not done purposefully. It is worth noting that in this particular case the infringement was found to be non willful.

Gaye’ family is pleased with the verdict although they had initially been seeking over $25 million in damages. The jury also ruled that neither the record company, nor rapper T.I. who appears on the song should be held accountable in the lawsuit.

Gaye’s family claim that they noticed striking similarities between the two songs back when “Blurred Lines” was first released back in 2013, however both Thicke and Williams, who is responsible for writing the song, claim that they never discussed or copied Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got To Give It Up”.  Williams said he was inspired by the feeling of Gaye’s music and that he was channeling that feeling of the late 70’s when the song was created and Thicke claimed that he was high on Vicoden when the song was penned, mostly by Williams.
