This is f'ing nuts. And that poor child and his mother in the SVU. The 4 year old boy ended up dying.

SC has a similar bill floating around the legislature, as they have for the last few years. They obviously never seem to pass into law though.

I had a friend that lived on the IN border but worked in MI and had to deal with that. His five-minute commute took "an hour and five minutes."

So his solution was to move to a state that itself occupies 2 different time zones? For the win.

2 spring breakers drugged, raped woman, then partied, cops say. She died in South Beach hotel

https://www.yahoo.com/news/2-spring-bre ... 15265.html
The men, Evoire Collier, 21, and Dorian Taylor, 24, are also accused of stealing the woman’s credit cards to spend money on their trip in South Beach. Investigators are trying to determine whether the woman died of an overdose, possibly from a pill the men supplied. The Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office said Monday it is conducting further tests, and no cause of death has been determined.
The charges Collier and Taylor face are far more serious: burglary with battery, sexual battery, petty theft and the fraudulent use of a credit card. If the drug they gave her is proven to have played a role in her death, the men could potentially face a manslaughter or murder charge.

The victim, a 24-year-old woman visiting from Pennsylvania, was staying at the Albion Hotel, 1650 James Ave.
Paramedics and officers were called to the hotel after the woman was discovered “semi nude” and dead in the room’s bed on Thursday. Detectives immediately obtained video surveillance footage of two men entering with the woman, and then leaving less than one hour later.

Collier fit the description of one of the men, and was found Saturday on Ocean Drive at Eighth Street — an area that has been jam-packed with partiers in recent weeks. He was wearing the same pants seen in the video, according to the report.

He confessed to police that he and Taylor met the woman at a local restaurant. Collier claimed that Taylor gave the girl a “green pill” as they walked on Ocean Drive. It was unclear from the arrest report whether she took the pill willingly, or if she was given it surreptitiously.

Collier told police that he believed the drug was Percocet, a powerful pain reliever, a Miami Beach detective testified during Monday’s bond hearing.

“Obviously, we sent it to the lab,” Miami Beach Detective Luis Alsina told the judge. “We don’t know if it was fentanyl or some other narcotic.”

Collier said “that he went along with [Taylor] as they planned to have sex with the victim,” according to the report.

Walking into the hotel, the detective testified, the woman was staggering enough that Taylor had to hold her up as they walked into the elevator. “The defendant was holding her from behind, holding her by the neck so she could stand,” Alsina said.

At the hotel, Collier claimed, they each had sex with the woman, and at one point, Taylor forced himself on her as she appeared to be unconscious, the report said.

“The fact that the victim was under the influence of alcohol and narcotics, she could not have consented to sex with the defendants,” according to the police report.

When it became clear the woman was unconscious, the men stole cash, credit cards and her phone and left her in the room “without any concern for her welfare or safety.”

The men used the stolen credit cards at “various locations” in Miami Beach, according to the report. Police said Taylor was captured on video surveillance using the woman’s credit card at South Beach Liquors. When he was arrested, police found the woman’s phone and green pills, the report said.

Seriously...I can't even understand the "point" of this...as a dude, I very much like when my women are alive and conscious...

Hopefully, the punishment is befitting of the crime...

The problem with spring break in a place like Miami Beach/South Beach etc. (setting aside COVID completely) is that you have a lot of scumbags that are also there and are most definitely not in college. That is one of the last places in the country I would want my daughter to spend spring break at.

Would have preferred singular boxing glove, plural children...but I'll listen to this anyhow...I'll be curious to see if they go matching minors and charge the kid as an adult...I think anything over the age of 5 is fair game there...
