Bad Times At The El Starbucks

An argument outside a Florida Starbucks ended with one man dead and the other charged for the alleged murder. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the coffee isn’t that great, people!

A witness told police that Justin Boersma cut off a man in line at the drive-thru, so the other man got out of his truck, started banging on Boersma’s window, and ripped the door handle off, according to an arrest report obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.

I can understand the man’s anger, but honestly, was it worth it to confront this jackass? Scream inside your car and flip him the bird, but this isn’t the America where we grew up. Americans kill people if you give them a sideways glance nowadays.

As the other man started walking back to his truck, Boersma got out of his car and fatally shot him.

Boersma may have had a (weak) case if he shot the man while we was banging on the window. Getting out and shooting the man as he walked back to his vehicle? Yeah, that’s a cut-and-dry homicide.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said that when deputies arrived at the scene, the victim was sitting in his car suffering from gunshot wounds and was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. Samuel Rossetti, 31, has been identified as the man who was shot and killed.

Another man lost over a senseless act. And for what? Uncontrollable anger? Humanity is doomed.

Pitfall

I know I usually poke fun of Florida here, but in this case, every person in the story needs to be ridiculed and/or institutionalized. Starting with discount Peg Bundy.

A Florida judge granted bond to a woman accused of killing her husband five years ago and burying the body under a fire pit she built in the backyard.

Laurie Shaver, 38, has been behind bars since her September arrest in the 2015 death of her 36-year-old husband, Michael Shaver, a Disney World mechanic.

“The standard bond schedule for the Fifth Circuit is $50,000 for the charge of murder in second-degree. I think that is appropriate,” Lake County Judge Richard Singletary said.

That’s funny, your honor, I think you’re a jackass. $50,000 may be “appropriate” for a crime of passion or temporary insanity, but this woman (allegedly) shot her husband in the skull, then buried him in the backyard and built a fire pit atop his remains.

Investigators determined Shaver had been shot once in the head. At the time, she was dating Travis Filmer, the father of her two youngest children. Filmer told a prosecutor at a bond hearing Thursday that he never asked her how the body wound up in the backyard.

“No sir, not with her,” he said, according to the station. “I specifically stated we don’t need to talk about it. It’s none of my business.” (H/TMike AKA Proof)

I’m sorry, your girlfriend (allegedly) murdering her husband is none of your business? Are you out of your cotton pickin’ mind? This is either the stupidest man on the entire planet of Earth, or he told the biggest lie ever heard in law enforcement.

Personally, I think Shaver, Filmer, and the Singletary should be afforded lodging in the Lake County Jail. Sigh, it’s just idiots all the way down.
