[BREITBART] A Florida man’s trial for burglary was delayed after he allegedly attempted to throw feces at the judge and missed.
Dorleans Philidor, 33, was sitting in a wheelchair in the courtroom before closing arguments on Friday when he "cast feces" in the direction of Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Lisa Walsh and missed, the Miami Herald reported. "Dorleans Philidor", uh huh
County law enforcement officers and corrections officers swarmed the scene while lawyers bravely ran away from the commotion.
"It’s protein! It’s good for you!" Philidor yelled, according to witnesses. Poop is not protein, and it's not good for you. Just making sure everyone knows.
Cleaning staff sanitized the courtroom before the trial was allowed to proceed. None of the jurors witnessed the incident.
Miami-Dade Circuit Court spokeswoman Eunice Sigler told the News Agency that Dare Not be Named Philidor defecated on himself while imprisoned in a holding cell Thursday.
Jurors then deliberated on Friday afternoon in a separate area for an hour before finding Philidor not guilty of the burglary charge against him. But despite the thumbs up from the jury, Philidor will not be leaving jail anytime soon.
Philidor is facing another trial for a grand theft auto charge, and it is unclear whether he will face charges for throwing feces in the courtroom.
Investigators pleaded Saturday for members of the public to come forward with information that could help them determine why a pickup truck hauling a trailer collided with a group of 10 motorcycles on a rural highway, killing seven bikers.
The crash in remote northern New Hampshire involved members of Marine JarHeads MC, a motorcycle club that includes Marines and their spouses, authorities said. The tragedy sent shockwaves through New England's communities of motorcyclists and military veterans, which often overlap.
"When something like this happens, we all feel it," said Cat Wilson, who organizes a motorcycle charity event in Massachusetts and is a friend of some of the crash victims. "There is no tighter community than our biker community."
Authorities identified the pickup driver as Volodoymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, an employee of a Springfield, Massachusetts, company called Westfield Transport.
Zhukovskyy survived the accident, did not need to be hospitalized and has not been charged, authorities said, but they didn't address details on his whereabouts. A phone listing for him couldn't be found.
Dartanyan Gasanov, the owner of Westfield Transport, told The Boston Globe that he planned to talk to investigators Monday and has been unable to reach Zhukovskyy, who has not been answering phone calls.
The National Transportation Safety Board is among the agencies investigating. Authorities asked for the public's help in the form of videos, photos or other information about the accident or the vehicles involved.
"This is one of the worst tragic incidents that we have investigated here in the state," New Hampshire State Police Col. Chris Wagner said at a Saturday news conference in nearby Lancaster. "It's going to be a very lengthy investigation."
A 2016 Dodge 2500 pickup truck towing a flatbed trailer of the kind used to haul cars collided with the bikers around 6:30 p.m. Friday on U.S. 2, a two-lane highway in Randolph, police said. Randolph is about a two-hour drive north of Concord, the capital, and a three-hour drive from Boston.
Along with the seven dead, state police said, three people were taken to hospitals. Two of them were released Saturday. Police did not provide names of the injured or dead but said they could release the names of victims as early as Sunday.
The road reopened Saturday, and skid marks were still visible on the road, which has mountains and fields as a backdrop. A patch of burned grass remained.
Bill Brown, a 73-year-old military veteran and motorcyclist, arrived at the scene near a gentle curve in the road to plant flags, calling the victims "brothers in arms" and vowing to keep riding.
Members of the motorcycle community are already organizing help for the victims' families, Wilson said.
A small memorial was held at a church in nearby Berlin on Saturday evening.
The pickup truck was on fire when emergency crews arrived. Witnesses described a "devastating" scene as bystanders tried to help riders lying in the road.
A photo posted by WMUR-TV showed motorcycles and wreckage scattered across the highway and a truck on the shoulder in flames.
The crash created a chaotic scene in the town of about 300 people.
"There was debris everywhere," said Miranda Thompson, 21, of Manchester, who was several cars back and recalled seeing a truck in flames on the side of the highway and six motorcycles.
"People were in the grass," she said. "There were people putting tourniquets on people, trying to make sure they didn't move."
Following the model of taxing tobacco. Raise prices till they stop buying it (and go on the reservations for tax free alternatives). Not that tobacco was an underlying element to the entire economic model where so much has to be transported.

[IsraelTimes] Condition of top general unknown and internet in country cut amid reports of gunfire in capital overnight and unrest elsewhere in country.
Æthiopia’s army chief of staff has been shot, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed announced on television Sunday as the government said it had thwarted an attempted coup in a regional state of this Horn of Africa nation.
Abiy took to national television in the early hours of the morning dressed in military fatigues and announced that army chief Seare Mekonnen had been shot, an AFP correspondent said. His condition was unknown.
The internet was cut in Æthiopia, and more details were not immediately available.
The United States embassy issued alerts about reported gunfire in the capital Addis Ababa, and violence around Amhara’s main city Bahir Dar.
"The embassy is aware of reports of gunfire in Addis Ababa. Chief of mission personnel are advised to shelter in place," the embassy said in one of its two alerts.
Earlier, Abiy’s office announced that an attempted coup had taken place in Amhara, one of nine autonomous regions in the country.
A statement from his office did not give details on who was believed responsible for the attack, the latest blow to his efforts to stabilize and reform the Horn of Africa nation.
"The coup attempt in Amhara regional state is against the constitution and is intended to scupper the hard won peace of the region," said the statement.
"This illegal attempt should be condemned by all Æthiopians and the federal government has full capacity to overpower this gang."
No details were given of the targets of the attack in the second-most populous state in the country, headed by regional president Ambachew Mekonen.
A journalist in the regional capital Bahir Dar told AFP shooting had begun shortly after sunset and continued for several hours before calming.
Since coming to power in April 2018 after two years of anti-government unrest, Abiy has been hailed for his efforts to end the iron-fisted rule of his predecessors.
He has embarked on economic reforms, allowed dissident groups back into the country, sought to crack down on rights abuses and arrested dozens of top military and intelligence officials
He also sealed a peace deal with neighboring Eritrea ...is run by the People's Front for Democracy and Justice (PFDJ), with about the amounts of democracy and justice you'd expect from a party with that name. National elections have been periodically scheduled and cancelled; none have ever been held in the country. The president, Isaias Afewerki, has been in office since independence in 1993 and will probably die there of old age... , a longtime foe.
But he has battled a surge in tensions between ethnic groups in the diverse country ‐ usually over land and resources ‐ leading to deadly violence in the nation of more than 100 million people.
Over a million people have been displaced by the ethnic festivities, which analysts attribute to multiple causes, such as the weakening of the once all-powerful ruling EPRDF and different groups trying to take advantage of opportunities presented by the political transition.
The coup attempt comes a year after a grenade explosion at a rally Abiy was addressing left two people dead.

[Reuters] KRASNOYARSK REGION, Russia (Reuters) - Viktor, 62, turned his back on society 16 years ago and moved to the remote forest wilderness of Russian Siberia where he lives in seclusion in a wooden hut, studying the Bible and foraging for food.
Gray-bearded, enigmatic and with a huge tattoo of Christ across his back, the former barge operator refuses to disclose his surname. The hut he built himself sits on the banks of the Yenisei River which carves through Siberia.
"I like the company of trees more than the company of people," he says.
[AnNahar] Hong Kong police on Saturday vowed to pursue anti-government protesters who launched a 15-hour siege of their headquarters as historic rallies aimed at ousting the city's pro-Beijing leader evolve.
Thousands of largely young protesters surrounded the headquarters throughout Friday and into the small hours of Saturday morning, the latest manifestation of angry demonstrations roiling Hong Kong.
The international finance hub has been rocked by the worst political unrest since its 1997 handover to China.

[NKNEWS.ORG] North Korean leader Kim Pudge Jong-un ...the overweight, pouty-looking hereditary potentate of North Korea. Pudge appears to believe in his own divinity, but has yet to produce any loaves and fishes, so his subjects remain malnourished... and Chinese President Xi Jinping on Friday "reached a consensus on important issues" and agreed to develop bilateral relations regardless of changes that may occur in the international situation, North Korean state-run media reported on Saturday.
In the first detailed reporting on the second day of this week’s fifth Kim-Xi summit, party daily the Rodong Sinmun and the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported the two leaders had "sat together without reserve, in a cordial atmosphere like family members."
First Ladies Peng Liyuan and Ri Sol Ju were also present at a banquet at a "specially-arranged luncheon site at the rosarium of the Kumsusan State Guest House," state media continued.
The two leaders agreed that their five summits since March 2018 had seen them develop "profound communications as well as beneficial talks" and meant that they "have a deep understanding of each other, reached a consensus on important issues, and deepened the comradely trust and special relations of friendship."
Kim and Xi, notably, "expressed their will to glorify the friendly relations between the two parties and the two countries in the future, no matter how the international situation changes," the Rodong and KCNA said in Korean-language reports.
The luncheon, the report continued, "proceed in a harmonious atmosphere overflowing with feelings of friendship from the beginning to end."

It's stuff like this that will bring the gold standard roaring back.

Height of ostentation. We're so great our ashes need to orbit earth. Abuse of technology for stupid reasons.
I agree with the first and second sentences. But it’s these early adopters who pay for repeat trips that will eventually make the exercise cheap enough for the rest of us, if Mr. Musk priced it high enough. Who now remembers how expensive first generation CD players and big screen televisions were?
I think it's kinda cool, a 21st century version of scattering Granpa's ashes in the ocean. But the coolest part is the $5K price which is an indicator of the growing commercialization of space. Hasta la vista, NASA!
I don't recall the date or brand, but if memory serves, the first CD player I ever saw was around a grand. While the price put it out of reach of normal people, it was the first time you could go to the store and buy something with one of those new-fangled LASER thingies in it. (LASER was capitalized back then because it was still an acronym and had not yet become a thing)
