tony pierce shot in centerville

dude who shot tony pierce, allegedlytheres a town called Centerville. it’s in Utah.

sunday a dude shot a man named Tony Pierce, who was his neighbor.

it wasnt me. i was watching football and reading the bible. also im not 41.

The 41-year-old victim, identified by neighbors as Tony Pierce, was hit once in the leg and once in the back, police said. A helicopter flew him to University Hospital, where police said he was undergoing surgery to repair life-threatening injuries in his chest cavity. As of Monday morning, he was recovering after having his spleen and the bullet removed, according to the Centerville Police Department.

people always aim for the spleen.

i’ll never understand that.

Police arrested a 53-year-old Mike Selleneit and planned to book him into the Davis County jail on suspicion of attempted homicide. His wife was also taken into custody.

his wife too? were they joined at the hip? was she spotting for him?

The shooting happened about 5 p.m. at a trailer park at 555 N. 400 West.

ok that explains it. good thing there werent any kids around.

The victim’s 8-year-old daughter was in the trailer during the shooting but was not harmed, police said.

dude shot at a neighbor who had a kid in the house? what sick frick would do that?

Centerville officer Rolynn Snow said police found a .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun in Selleneit’s trailer apparently used in the shooting.

In 1991, Selleneit pleaded guilty but mentally ill to a felony count of attempted sexual abuse of a child. Snow said Selleneit was cooperating and accurately answering questions for detectives. The 1991 conviction prohibits Selleneit from possessing a gun.

so was my namesake cray cray too?

Cathy Greaves lives in the same trailer park but did not hear the shooting. She called Pierce “a real nice guy” who did not cause trouble.

in the follow up story today, the word is that tony pierce is fighting for his life.

and the shooter is saying pierce used his ESP to threaten he and his wife.

According to a probable cause statement filed with the Davis County jail, Selleneit told detectives he shot Pierce in self-defense with intent to kill him. Selleneit claimed Pierce had been “telepathically threatening” to kill Selleneit and his wife.

“Selleneit also claimed that Pierce had telepathically raped his wife on many occasions,” police wrote in the statement.

i cant wait for the televised court proceedings.

get well tony pierce of utah!

worst person of the week: this cop in oakland

we can debate all night as to whether the Occupy movement has an end game, if they need a leader, and if theyre generally confused as to what the Occupy movement is all about.

the LA Times last week ran several pieces last week about Occupy LA including a news item about a radio talk show host who went there to try to stir things up, a gentle Kate Linthicum column one feature about some of the people spending time on City Hall’s lawn, a trippy Bryan Chan panorama of the scene, and today columnist Steve Lopez appeared a bit fed up with the whole deal.

but one guy who was clearly fed up with the protests happening in Oakland was one of the East Bay’s finest who took it upon himself to throw an exploding gas grenade into a group of protesters who were ailing a fallen comrade.

even if there were 100 perfect oakland cops out there that night, this one ruined it all for all of them.

my only hope is that the ranks collapse on that bad apple, and kick him out as quickly as they can.

i was minding my own business, thinking about reading all weekend

it was saturday afternoon. i had just been stood up by a ucsb sorority girl who said she wanted to hike with me.

but it was cool, i had a hangover from the previous night at the gay bar anyway whose festivities hadnt ended till 430am.

then my text machine spit out some ticker tape from a young lady at the beach who was all omg its 75 degrees out here. come out!

on manhattan beach

i was like, yeah but whats in it for me?

she was all well maybe for the first time this year your life wouldnt be all boring.

and the girl had a point. i was fading into the gaping maw of death without even the slightest fight.

but when would i ever get to play NBA2K11???

but it sure was pretty

we noticed a lot of apartments and condos for rent right by the beach. crazy prices. i thought real estate was flat?

this one was a 2BD for $2400.

in a studio apartment that has a murphy bed

or for just $1,450 a month you could have a studio apt a half block from the beach with a murphy bed

in manhattan beach - two bedrooms, two fireplaces

but this beach front condo pretty much convinced us that we shouldnt actually buy a house anywhere we should just rent it

for sixty grand a year.

in manhattan beach

never mind that you could just live in a normal place and drive yr car the two blocks to said beach and park for $2 an hour whenever you wanted.

secretly karisa hates me which is why she tried to make me drink a glass of wheat grass juice

wood chip trail

i was all, id rather do Anything that drink this juice and she said Anything?

she said even take a run on a wood chip trail that starts off in a scary heroin tunnel?

i said thats exactly what i was hoping youd say

in manhattan beach

my shaky iphone pics dont do it justice but the wood chip trail is called the Veterans Parkway

it was built over where cable car tracks used to run from downtown to the beach

but the tracks were pulled up so as to encourage people to start buying cars back in the day.

once you start playing Wonder How Much That House Costs you can never stop.

afterwards we went to her pad to do some P90x and play with the kitty

afterwards we went back to her pad to do some P90x, watch the Charlie Sheen livestream, and play with the kitty

i was so hungry i was all, imma eat that cat if something doesnt turn into a steak or some sushi pronto.

a cab took us to Sasha which Foursquare swore was filthy with cougars, but all i could see were attendees for the Shortest Dress Convention

at Sasha sushi in mannhattan beach

the meal ended with a parade of tiramisus and smiley faces all around.

on manhattan beach el porto neighborhood

thanks for the awesome idea karisa!
