HUDSON — A 37-year-old man is accused of trying to kill his girlfriend early Wednesday, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

Richard A. Boothby Jr. faces a charge of attempted murder after he tried to kill the woman by slamming her head into the ground several times and covering her mouth and nose while pushing his knee into her neck, deputies said.

"You will never see the light of day again," Boothby said to the woman, a report states.

Boothby is a paramedic for Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The woman told authorities survived by pretending she was dead, then running outside the home she shares with Boothby. The incident happened about 2:40 a.m. at 16036 Kemper Drive.

The woman, whose identity was not released, found two people outside who called 911. She was treated for her injuries at the scene, said sheriff's spokesman Doug Tobin.

Deputies reported they pulled over Boothby's vehicle a few minutes later near U.S. 19 and Denton Avenue.

Along with attempted murder, Boothby is charged with false imprisonment and tampering with a witness. He is being held without bail at the Pasco County jail.

I am not sure if attempted murder would stick for trying "to kill her by covering her mouth and nose while pushing his knee into her neck". It's more like aggravated battery. But of course, our sheriff does have to prove he needs the money. LOL (not short for lank o lakes)

Uh, WHAT Harley Dude? Covering both openings that allow air into a person's lungs doesn't constitute attempted murder? Was he just trying to see how long she could hold her breath? Thank God you're not a judge--no one would go to jail. "Well, he did aim the gun at his head and pull the trigger, but seriously your honor, he wasn't trying to KILL him, just scare him"

Floridians are F'ing Crazy

AND, (or)their Supervisors of Election are dirty. PLUS on this last statement. To wit: The murder of Phyllis Busansky.

Anyway .... electing a THIEF (MAYBE) a DOG THIEF (fuck) and a CHARLATAN CUBANO all in one night.

Marco Rubio considers himself an immigrant like I consider myself .... can't find an apt comparison.

Mark Ober will be on a free for all.

Blanks and Charges

Okay, tell me if this sounds mercenary. I'm leaving out names and identities for now, and even some words to protect those who frankly don't deserve protection but having never been a RAT (like some) I just don't feel good about spilling people's filthy sides of their lives onto the WWW...

However -- (you knew this was coming, right??) -- I'm willing to disclose same for a fee. In fact, I'm going to disclose some of this in a book which will definitely be for sale very soon but if you'd like to know if your name or some similar aspect that identifies your smarmy and illegal acts towards me and my family have been mentioned I'd be happy to negotiate a fee with you. For the record, save your pennies if I've known you longer than thirty years. Out of respect for you and your family I'll leave your names out. Out of respect for you and your family I have remained silent. Apparently this same respect was not inbred in you. That's a pity but you and yours are safe with me. The ones who took it upon themselves to do your bidding against an innocent family are wide open just like they've left MY family wide open. Herewith I refer to my extended family and network many of whom are currently suffering at your hands. Be on notice.

A Nation in DISTRESS

A Nation in DISTRESS


In my living room watching;
but I am not laughing ....

..... risk something, take back what's yours
say something that you know they might attack you for
cause I'm sick of being treated like I have before ....
Meanwhile, the leader just talks away
Stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay
And the rest of the world watching at the end of the day

In their living room laughing like,

"what did he say?"

Fight the Good Fight

" .... courage is humankind's cardinal virtue, because ''it makes all other virtues possible."
Reverend William Sloane Coffin

......" And I dare you to ask for a lot, I dare you to hold fast to your ideals and to expound them as publicly and as fearlessly as Martin Luther King and Bill Coffin and Betty Friedan and those dozens of grandmothers arrested a few weeks ago for protesting the war in Iraq."

About Me

I was born a citizen of the world and have remained such but along with that: I'm a long time Tampa resident. Mixed bag at that as I've seen life here from nearly all angles and while somewhere in there I became slightly indoctrinated, I'm not too proud of the way people have taken over this city and run it with an iron fist for all but some. This city is working hard on creating just two classes. Thems and them dont's and they are working hard to shove some families down into the gutter for reasons known only to them. Some might be as petty as jealousy, some might be politically motivated, some might just be stupid and all are wrong. I want to believe we can get better but that would entail some stuff that I have no control over. I only can control myself and my reactions to what occurs.
