50 years in jail for stealing ribs?WOW just Wow!




Trying to steal a $35 rack of pork ribs will cost a Texas man 50 years in prison.

The seemingly stiff sentence handed down Wednesday dates back to a September 2011 incident, in which Willie Smith Ward, 43, attempted to steal a package of meat from the H-E-B grocery store in Waco. An employee approached Ward and asked what he had under his clothing.

Ward said, “I got a knife,” after the ribs fell out from beneath his shirt, the Waco Tribune-Herald reports.

Ward's lengthy rap sheet likely affected the decision of the jurors, who required two minutes to convict Ward and roughly an hour to determine his sentence. His previous convictions include burglary, attempted robbery, cocaine possession and theft, among others.

“This verdict shows that the citizens of this county will not tolerate a continued disrespect and disregard for other people and their property,” said Assistant District Attorney J.R. Vicha. “People who choose to do so will be dealt with seriously and appropriately.”

The Houston Press offered this crass analysis:

In short, it seems that Ward has something of a criminal history that probably had at least as much weight with the jury as the theft of those particular pork slabs of deliciousness, explaining the sentence. But still, here's hoping he did enjoy those ribs and that they came out succulent and delicious with either a dry rub or a really fine barbecue sauce. If he serves the entire sentence, each year of his life will be worth a $.70 of those ribs.

Sex With A Capricorn Man :-)

The word horny, meaning easily aroused, comes from the horns of a goat. The connection fits the Capricorn man. He has a strong sex drive. The Capricorn man first wants passion and sex, and then affection.It is a sign that is mindful of the status of his woman, girlfriend, or wife. A major turn-on for a Capricorn guy is being with a classy woman. The phrase “a lady in the parlor and a vixen in the bedroom” is a perfect description of the Capricorn man's taste in women. Capricorn men value decorum and a woman who dresses tastefully and usually conservatively.Capricorn men will not make the first move unless they are 99 percent sure of success. With the water signs, such as Cancerand Pisces, men don't make the first move because they may be too sensitive and won't easily recover from a rebuff.The Capricorn man is tougher, but doesn't put time and energy into pursuit unless there is a very good chance of having the sexual encounter he desires. The Cap man is happy with sed…

story behind Tupac Against all odds its deep!

What many may not realize, is that Shakur implicated more people in the shooting than just Biggie and Puff Daddy (now known as P Diddy). In the song "Against All Odds", he confesses and drops names on several other people, including Jimmy Henchman, King Tut (aka Walter Johnson), and Haitian Jack. Jimmy Henchman is a music manager who has ties with Bad Boy Records. Word on the streets is that Henchman secured a deal between Bad Boy Records and BMF (Black Mafia Family), in which BMF would fund Bad Boy and help Diddy start his label, in exchange for protection (muscle) and paid royalties. King Tut and Haitian Jack were both affiliated with BMF. Haitian Jack was the codefendant in Tupac's sexual abuse case, while King Tut had approached Tupac a few years earlier while on the set for the movie Above the Rim. Tut had allegedly tried to pressure 2pac into signing with Bad Boy. So Tupac had suspected that Haitian Jack had set him up with the rape case, and that the woman who acc…

Relationships Fail Because?!!!

I agree with this 1 million percent. I feel like we are all insecure in some way but what starts arguments those insecurities being brought into the dealings in your relationship. It all starts with trust and communication if you have neither then why are you in the relationship to begin with? It's a man's job to make his woman feel secure but you have to let him you can't always keep this wall up and keep him in the dark. Communicate if he does something you don't like call him out on it. Women must also learn that cause we mess up once doesn't mean we will do it again. Sometimes almost losing everything that you love in your woman is a game changing life changing event. It's an ego thing we always think that person will be there no matter what but sometimes our insecurities make them feel enough is enough. I feel like as men & women we both need to learn when to pick our battles when you war war for reason. Cause people get fed up they get tired of the a…
