Kai is a home free hitchhiker that just happened to be in the right place, at the right time. In West Fresno, CA, Kai seems to be a hero who saved the lives of two people, with the use of his hatchet.
While sitting in the passenger seat, Kai begins to realize that 54-year-old Jett Simmons McBride was a large racist (both in size and hatred). At 2pm, Friday, Mr. McBride drove his car into the back of a black electrical worker and pinned him to his utility truck. The whole time, Kai was still in the vehicle.
“I’m Jesus Christ and I can do anything I fucking want to do,” he supposedly told Kai, a hitchhiker he’d picked up, right before slamming into the man.
McBride was still not finished with the man who was pinned, and got out of the vehicle in an attempt to pull him out. During this time, he continued his racist rant of how he was Jesus reborn and was here to remove “ni**ers” from the face of the Earth.”
Tanya Baker was an eye witness at the scene, and she even ran over to stop the man, but was then smothered in a bear hug. This is when Kai realized that he must do something, and jumped into action. McBride was 6’4″ and 290 lbs and Kai, well, he appears much smaller. Luckily though, Kai had a hatchet and ran over to the suspect.
“I fucking ran up behind him with a hatchet. Smash, smash, smash!”
With such a chaotic story, with so much violence, one would think that one or more of these injuries were fatal, but fortunately, that is not the case. The electrical worker was rushed to the hospital and found to have two broken legs. McBride is in police custody, most likely with a very bad headache. And Kai is most likely enjoying his time surfing or being a vigilante; Either way, this was a great interview ha.
When rescuers in Turkey thought they had saved a woman from drowning in the Black Sea, they must have been a little deflated. Instead of a swimmer in distress, they pulled something unexpected out of the water – a blow-up sex doll.
The beach-goers who raised the alarm had got it wrong and called the emergency services thinking a woman was going under. Within minutes, police cordoned off the scene and a rescue operation launched. Having sealed off a wide section of the beach, officers in the northern Samsun province sent a team of divers into the water.
But, Turkey’s Milliyet newspaper reported yesterday, the team quickly discovered the truth.
Having realised the error, they deflated the doll before throwing her into the garbage, the paper said. It was not clear where the blow-up doll had come from.
Apparently, you fall over the side of your balcony and are left dangling by your dress with your panties exposed. In the video below, you can see the 74-year-old woman from Ukraine who had fallen from her balcony on the 8th floor and was lucky enough to have her dress snagged at the 7th floor. The elderly woman, who is a Mariupol resident, had leaned over the balcony too far while trying to yell at street musicians who were being bothersome, according to the woman.
Firefighters were able to help the woman out of this rather embarrassing situation and gave her a sedative before she sent them away. Clearly, this woman was a rather large pain in the ass. In fact, if I were those musicians, I wouldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome.
This video is an excerpt from the project, BURN, a documentary featuring Detroit firefighters and the risks they take. After two dogs, one just a puppy, are removed from the home, a brave firefighter removes his own oxygen mask to revive the dogs. The owner, who seems frantic, begins thanking the man as soon as he leans down beside the pups.
Sam, the golden retriever, jumped into the Merrimack River for a swim, when he was suddenly swept away. With the help of his owners voice, as well as the firefighters, Sam was able to be rescued quickly and reunited with his best friend.
Obviously there has been a lot of controversy surrounding this video. Many people are upset that the person filming is not trying to help save the puppy, while others are saying it’s a perfectly humane way to train your dog to rescue. I think the owner figured that the pup still had its head above water and was hanging on to the edge, and clearly the mother figured out how to get the pup from there.

Francesco Schettino, the Italian cruise ship captain who caroused with his passengers before steering his ship dangerously close to shore and then fleeing immediately when it ran aground and capsized, leaving 11 (at last count) to die and thousands to flail in terror, sounds like a real go-getter. Here is a tape of an Italian Coast Guard official ordering Schettino, who was speaking by phone from a lifeboat, to get back aboard and help evacuate the women and children who were still on his boat. He said no.

On Saturday afternoon, Donna Chen, 53, was out walking her dog when she was suddenly struck and killed by a drunk driver. Blake C. Talman, 22, was actually fleeing another scene where he was suspected of crashing prior to this incident in which he took a woman’s life.
Talman reportedly lost control of his Nissan Altima on State Road 758 north of Glebe Lane when troopers say he struck Donna L. Chen as she was walking her dog on a sidewalk.
According to authorities, the dog was also hit, and it ran away from the scene.
Talman didn’t stop after hitting the woman and her dog and continued on through some landscaping, a street sign, and several wooden poles at the entrance of St. Michael’s Archangel Catholic Church. Then when you would think the young drunk driver might give up, he strikes another car with an 18-year-old girl who sustains minor injuries as well.
Both Talman and his passenger, a 24-year-old man, sustained serious injuries and were transported to Sarasota Memorial Hospital.
Sunday morning, the hospital reported that Talman and the passenger had been discharged.
Talman is currently booked into the Sarasota County Jail.
What’s worse is that this young idiot that caused so much destruction is an expectant father. He seemed very upset when he heard that his bail would be set at $100,000 because that would pose a problem with him trying to be involved in the process of having a new child. This man has nothing to be angry about because he killed someone, injured others and caused extreme amounts of damage to various properties. Maybe you shouldn’t be getting so wasted and driving a vehicle when you’re expecting a baby, not to say you should do so otherwise, but setting a good example and being a safe and responsible father might be a good thing to try and carry out. Luckily, you’ll have time to be sober and think about the dumb shit you’ve done to get yourself in this situation.
Meanwhile, the dog that Chen was walking was terrified by the incident and had no idea where to go for help. With his owner now dead and no one tending to her, the dog ran off and jumped into the Gulf of Mexico. After swimming about a half mile with injuries from the accident, a man who was fishing in his kayak and had a camera filming everything, managed to safely rescue the poor shocked dog. Poor thing was lost, confused, and hurt badly. Luckily, he is now okay.
UPDATE: the mystery is solved. However, it’s very sad and unfortunate:
The accident scene was about a mile from where I found Barney swimming. Our guess is that he was so freaked out and traumatized that he just wanted to get as far away from there as possible. And when he ran out of land, he took to the water. I feel lucky that I was there fishing, because there was no place for him to go and I don’t know if he could have made it much farther. He’s banged up, but fine. Our hearts go out to the family who lost their mother.
* Yes, Barney is back with his family. I imagine they need him pretty bad right now.
* I usually keep a camera running when I fish, in case I catch the big one. It does happen, occasionally (see other videos in my profile if you are interested)
* The kayak is a Hobie Adventure. It is a kayak made specifically for fishing. When turned down, the side floats allow me to stand up and fish.
* My brother got my mom some shamwows a couple years back as a gag gift. As corny as they are, they actually are pretty nice for fishing

These are amazing photographs that happened to capture the moment that a mother lion was able to save her cub.
Clinging on for dear life to the side of a vertical cliff, the tiny lion cub cries out pitifully for help.
His mother arrives at the edge of the precipice with three other lionesses and a male. The females start to clamber down together but turn back daunted by the sheer drop.
Eventually one single factor determines which of them will risk her life to save the youngster – motherly love.
Slowly, agonisingly, the big cat edges her way down towards her terrified son, using her powerful claws to grip the crumbling cliff side.
One slip from her and both animals could end up dead at the bottom of the ravine.
Just as the exhausted cub seems about to fall, his mother circles beneath him and he is snatched up in her jaws.
She then begins the equally perilous journey back to the top. Minutes later, they arrive and she gives the frightened creature a consoling lick on the head.
Despite the presence of wardens to deter poachers, day-to-day life for the lions is not without its dangers … as the cub learned the hard way.
Rescue mission: The mother inches her way down the cliff face to rescue the terrified cub before locking him in her jaws and making her way back up the cliff face

A lesbian couple from Norway rescued 40 children during the Utoya Island youth camp attacks was nothing short of amazing, but has gained very little recognition internationally. Many feel that the lack of exposure is due to discrimination.
Hege Dalen and her partner, Toril Hansen, were two very brave INDIVIDUALS, regardless of their sexual orientation. They should be rewarded for their sheer instinct to protect and help children that were frightened and confused. They “braved gunfire while making trips to lift frightened youngsters from the water surrounding the island. ”
The original report, from The Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat was translated by the blog Talk About Equality:
“We were eating. Then shooting and then the awful screaming. We saw how the young people ran in panic into the lake,” says Dalen to HS in an interview. The couple immediately took action and pushed the boat into Lake Tyrifjorden.
Dalen and Hansen drove the boat to the island, picked up from the water victims in shock in, the young and wounded, and transported them to the opposite shore to the mainland. Between runs they saw that the bullets had hit the right side of the boat. Since there were so many and not all fit at once aboard, they returned to the island four times.
“We did not sleep last night at all. Today, we have been together and talked about the events,” Dalen said.
Let’s hope that the media didn’t delay in reporting this coverage for over a week due to homophobia. I find that hard to believe, what with the internet and all, but I’d hope that no one would be hateful to people who sacrificed their own lives for the lives of 40 children.
