Tongue Cut Out of Girlfriend's Mouth - BF's Defense: the Nag Had It Coming

Posted By on Fri, Feb 15, 2008 at 12:46 PM

The Associated Press reports that longshoreman, Frank Robert Mallory, of Long Beach, CA. received the death sentence yesterday for cutting out his girlfriend's tongue and allowing her to bleed to death. While the crime is horrifying on its own, the defense argument is gut churning as well. Writes the AP "…Witnesses testified that Mallory and Dunthorne fought constantly after she moved in even though Mallory bought her a car, put her on his health insurance and paid for her breast enhancement surgery." How dare she? Another winning quote: ... (Click 'More' to Continue Reading 'Tongue Cut ...')

"Mallory, who testified in his own defense,recalled that he had one final argument with Dunthorne on the night she died. He said she wanted him to buy her a $15,000 watch and she belittled him, nagged him and hit him." So let's see, the guy is nice enough to buy his girl a boob job and when the uppity bitch won't stop "nagging" him, he cuts her tongue out. No symbolism there. Also, a note to the AP: could you find a way to write about this tragedy without sounding like you kind of think his argument is valid? Buy a thesaurus and look up some synonyms for "nag."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
