Roodhouse, Illinois During his 2010 campaign for Greene County Sheriff, Rob McMillion stated one of his priorities if elected would be to “aggressively [investigate] criminal activity”. That’s why, when he received complaints of horses starving to death with carnage on the ground that Wednesday evening, it was dark, he waited until after the corpses of nine to eleven horses had been buried prior to making his “surprise” visit.

In a normal world, the loved one promises to high-tail it home and arranges for someone to get to the house who may be a little closer. And if it’s become an emergency situation, they call 911 and defy the speed of sounds getting to the hospital so as to not miss this special moment. In a normal world. But when it involves a 13-year-old girl, her 30-year-old boyfriend, and a self-induced abortion with a pencil, the normalcy goes out of the window and the bizarre takes hold. (more…)
