Boner of the Day for September 23rd, 2020

ROUND ONE

BONER CANDIDATE #1:  I DON’T NEED PEOPLE GAWKING AT MY DEAD FAMILY

Vanessa Bryant is suing the L.A. County Sheriff and his department after deputies reportedly took photos of Kobe and Gianna Bryant’s bodies at the helicopter crash site in January.  In the lawsuit, Vanessa claims, ‘No fewer than 8 sheriff’s deputies at the crash site pulled out their personal cell phones and snapped photos of the dead children, parents and coaches. The deputies took these photos for their own personal gratification.’  The widow is claiming the photos and their distribution among officers caused her emotional distress, as she says the pictures were the subject of conversation that had no investigative purpose.  Vanessa is suing Sheriff Alex Villanueva, alleging he tried to cover it up by telling deputies they would not face repercussions if they deleted the photos and she is now is fearful the photos will leak.   Read More

BONER CANDIDATE #2: LET’S SEE HER REJECT THIS

A California man has been found guilty of putting his semen in a colleague’s water bottle and on her workspace after she rejected his advances.  Stevens Millancastro, 30, was convicted Monday on assault and battery charges stemming from his attempts to retaliate against the woman in La Palma between November 2016 and January 2017, the Mercury News reported.  Prosecutors allege that Millancastro was obsessed with his co-worker, asked her out on a date, and then began to incessantly stare at her after she turned him down.  The woman asked her boss to tell him to cut it out, but when that didn’t stop him, she filed a complaint with the HR department, prosecutors said.   Read More

BONER CANDIDATE #3: CHILLIN’. JUST CHILLIN’, DUDE.

A Michigan man was cited for DUI in Naples after deputies found the man bloodied from a crash Sunday.  Joseph Munoz, 28, told a deputy he was “just chillin’” after he was injured, covered in blood from an apparent crash, according to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office.  Munoz, reportedly, hit a guard rail on Tamiami Trail East just after 2 a.m. causing around $5,000 worth of damage.   Read More

 

ROUND TWO

BONER CANDIDATE #1: YOU GOT THE COOL PARENTS

Two Massachusetts parents and their teenage child are facing criminal charges in connection to a party that sparked coronavirus concerns and led the town’s entire high school to delay in-person learning.  The parents and teen in Sudbury, Massachusetts, were charged with violating the state’s social host law, the Sudbury police chief, Scott Nix, told NBC News on Tuesday morning. Under the law, “whoever furnishes alcohol” to underage drinkers faces a fine of up to $2,000, imprisonment for up to a year, or both.  The adults were charged with the misdemeanor in Framingham District Court and their child in Framingham Juvenile Court, the chief said.   Read More

BONER CANDIDATE #2: HE WAS JUST A LITTLE BOY; A KID OUT THERE TRYING TO HELP

Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi defended 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse as both a “little boy” and “this kid” during an appearance on Fox’s Hannity, clearly trying to evoke sympathy for the suspect charged with two murders another during a violent night in Kenosha, Wisconsin last month.  Rittenhouse has become something of a conservative cause célèbre after his alleged crimes were caught on viral video last month. Last month, during Kenosha’s protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, Rittenhouse, armed with a military-style rifle, posted himself outside a business to purportedly guard it from possible looting and provide medical aid as needed to protestors. During a chaotic, violent incident that night, Rittenhouse shot and killed two men and wounded another, and then calmly walked past police lines and went home for the night. He was arrested the next day.   Read More

BONER CANDIDATE #3: I’M AFRAID THERE IS A VERY LIMITED POOL OF BLACK PEOPLE TO CHOOSE FROM

Wells Fargo & Co Chief Executive Charles Scharf exasperated some Black employees in a Zoom meeting this summer when he reiterated that the bank had trouble reaching diversity goals because there was not enough qualified minority talent, two participants told Reuters.  He also made the assertion in a company-wide memo June 18 that announced diversity initiatives as nationwide protests broke out following the death of George Floyd, an unarmed African-American man, in police custody.  “While it might sound like an excuse, the unfortunate reality is that there is a very limited pool of black talent to recruit from,” Scharf said in the memo, seen by Reuters.  Scharf spent more time listening than speaking during the 90-minute call which he initiated and has not been previously reported. His comments about Black talent rubbed some attendees the wrong way, according to the two employees, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they feared repercussions.   Read More
