– A Montana man ended up in jail after calling police to claim that a stripper refused to have sex with him after he paid her $350, according to Billings’ KTVQ.com.
William McDaniel, 53, called 911 Saturday night to report the woman from Sagebrush Sam’s Exotic Dance Club in Rocker, Montana. McDaniel, who has a history of arrests for DUI and drug possession, was taken in by Butte-Silver Bow police for soliciting prostitution, a misdemeanor.
“If you’re in Rocker, Montana, wouldn’t you think something like this would be OK?” Callahan wondered. “It’s kind of a lawless [area]. … I’ll bet you people there, they think this is OK. They’re real libertarians out there, not phony ones like [Minihane].”
– The unarmed black teenager who was killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, had punched the officer and shattered his eye socket prior to being shot, according to a report out of the St. Louis suburb.
Officer Darren Wilson suffered an orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket, Gateway Pundit reported.
“He crushed the guy’s face,” Callahan said. “Does this mean we call off all the looting?”
Said Dennis: “It’s not fair to bring this up, Gerry, at this time. It’s character assassination.”
Continued Callahan: “You’re 300 pounds and you crush someone’s face, and they are, I assume, on the defensive here, I think the officer was probably fearing for his life. Wouldn’t you fear for your life when a 300-pounder crushed your face? So, do we call off the looting? No more looting?”
– The Maine man who lived in the woods for 27 years until being arrested for stealing from area homes and camps is readjusting to life in civilization.
Christopher Knight, known as the “North Pond Hermit,” talked about his situation with GQ as he goes through a special court program that provides treatment and counseling following a stint in jail.
“Some people want me to be this warm and fuzzy person,” the 48-year-old told the magazine. “All filled with friendly hermit wisdom. Just spouting off fortune-cookie lines from my hermit home.”
Said Callahan: “If you want to be a hermit living in the woods, wouldn’t you choose like, Virginia? I mean, Maine? Maine in your house in the winter is cold.”
