Septic tank peeper gets 1-year sentence

It was an exciting weekend in news. Here’s a few of the more interesting articles I ran across:

  • Man who hid in septic tank to spy on females sentenced

You have to be desperate, or crazy, or maybe crazy desperate for a home internet connection, to wallow in human feces to get a glimpse of female nudity.

But that’s what 54-year-old Kenneth Enlow did in Sand Springs, Okla. Enlow pleaded guilty and will serve one year in jail and pay a $5,000 fine. Meanwhile, a home internet connection costs $30 a month and probably can provide septic tank peeping Tom fodder, though I am leery of Googling such things here at work.

Enlow was caught by a woman and her daughter when they were visiting a White Water Park restroom and noticed a feces-smeared man peering at them from inside the toilet, reports TV station KJRH.

“It is not something you expect to see whenever you’re wanting to go to the restroom,” said mom Ambra Reynolds.

Enlow, after being rinsed off with a fire hose, told police his girlfriend hit him in the head with a tire iron and dumped him in the septic tank, but his girlfriend is reported to have died “last year.”

His friends told police they were not surprised by the antics of the outhouse peeper.

  • Church group alleges feeding the homeless is illegal in Raleigh

When I worked downtown, I would often feed pigeons in Centennial Park. It attracted a crowd of bedraggled creatures that generally left a mess.

It was not illegal.

Feeding hungry people in Raleigh, N.C., however, may be.

A church group, Love Wins Ministries, claims its members were threatened with arrest for attempting to hand out biscuits and coffee in Moore Square, an area of town that has been “revitalized.”

The group, much like it has done for six years, brought 100 biscuits to a park and 70 people were waiting in line when police allegedly told them they needed to purchase a permit to conduct humanitarian acts. The cost? $800 per day, or $1,600 each weekend.

That’s a lot of (biscuit) dough.

  • Guinea pig meat sickens 81

Despite the word “pig” being in their name, Guinea pigs are not made of pork.

Minnesota TV station WCCO reports at least 81 people were hospitalized after eating the rodents at a Ecuadorian festival in Minneapolis.

The Guinea pig was served by a vendor as part of a traditional Ecuadorian meal.

Many of the people hospitalized tested positive for salmonella poisoning.

  • Man dies trying to swim across croc-infested river

A man celebrating a friend’s birthday died while attempting to swim across a crocodile-infested river in Australia.

Experts say it was an unwise choice.

“Someone swimming in an area with crocs like that … crocs are going to zero in on them almost every time,” croc expert Grahame Webb told The Associated Press.

The resort where the party was held has several signs prohibiting swimming. Guests are advised to stay 16 feet from the water because large crocs “lunge” from the water and attempt to drag people in.

A 15-foot, 5-inch croc seen swimming upriver with the body of the man in its mouth was later killed by authorities.

  • Donald Trump University sued for $40 million

A civil lawsuit seeks $40 million from Donald Trump’s for-profit investment school for allegedly running an “elaborate bait-and-switch,” reports The New York Times.

The school offered a free 90-minute real estate investment seminar that is alleged to have been nothing more than a “sales pitch” about a three-day seminar costing $1,495. This three-day seminar was called a sales pitch for a $35,000 “personal mentorship program.”

The lawsuit alleges Trump did not personally select any instructors or create the curriculum for any courses.

A Trump lawyer said 98 percent of students say they are “extremely satisfied” with the courses.

  • Measles outbreak traced to anti-vaccine megachurch

A measles outbreak in Texas has been traced to a church in Texas, whose pastor has been critical of measles vaccinations, USA Today reports.

Terri Pearsons, of Eagle Mountain International Church in Newark, says Vitamin D supplements provide protection against measles and vaccines lead to autism in children.

But most of the 25 people sickened in a recent outbreak of measles in Texas are members of the church, experts say. The outbreak is believed to have began when a church member visited a country where measles remain common.

“This is a sadly misinformed religious leader,” said William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert and professor at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville. “This is a classic example of how measles is being reintroduced [to this country].”

The U.S. has twice as many confirmed measles cases in 2013 as in all of 2012. It kills one of every 1,000 people infected.

Government is the problem

Government is the group of people that claim the monopoly on legal force and violence in a given geographic area. Clearly in Raleigh, NC they now claim the monopoly on “charity” too. Of course their charity always involves stealing from the productive sector first before they have anything to hand out to the needy. As our economy slips further and further into the toilet as a result of governmental policies (mostly from the Federal Reserve), how much more force can we expect from governments as the rest of us try to help our fellow man?

Why did they kill the croc that ate the idiot who swam with it? Just to get the dumba**es body back? Seems really unfair to the croc who ate the Darwin Award winner.

So Government is the problem when they try and discourage giving handouts to homeless” bums?” I would think you would applaud these type of self reliance measures. I guess you just can’t please the right wing. Darn if you do darn if you don’t.

I never understand why they kill the wild animals in these cases.

Most likely they were forced to kill the croc to retrieve the body…unless, of course, you think the crock, if only asked, would have obediently come when whistled, willingly opened his mouth, then politely and gently laid the body at their feet.

Dear George,

You are such a carefree caboodle of knowledge. So much I have learned.
#1 Never use a White Water rest stop without checking for “cleaning” men below…
#2 Never swim with hungry crocodiles. They don’t mix well socially.
#3 Never eat guinea pig goulash at celebrations. Too much garlic and fur.
#4 Never be “measley” about measles. They itch.
#5 Never play “bait & switch” or Bingo with Donald Trump. He cheats
#6 Never give away biscuits at a park. Too fattening. .Pretzels permissible.. .

How else would I have learned all these things? Thanks again.

I for one would like to be able to enjoy the park without it being turned into a soup kitchen for the homeless. Making the homeless gravitate to the park for a free meal is bad use of public facilities. They could just as easily receive the food elsewhere. They would do the same thing they do for public libraries and make it unusable by the public with the loitering and smell that comes with their presence.

Enlow, after being rinsed off with a fire hose, told police his girlfriend hit him in the head with a tire iron and dumped him in the septic tank, but his girlfriend is reported to have died “last year.”

I love the part where it says, “after being rinsed off with a fire hose.” Sick, sick, sick. LOL.

Why in the **** would they kill the croc? The dipstick man jumped into the river where crocs live and feed. The croc was only doing what comes naturally. Pitiful.

Re: Feeding the homeless. The bigger problem is the way the authorities handled it. The church group had been doing this for years, so their presence was expected. If they really wanted them to stop, the way to do it would have been to call a meeting with them prior, rather than just threaten to arrest them after they showed up. Cooperation and trying to find solutions together works much better. So the cops were doing what they were told, but this was not a win win decision on the authorities side.

I also think they shouldn’t have killed the croc. He was in the middle of his well justified meal. But I guess they thought they had to prove the manner of death and then give the mangled remains to the family
