The Daily Word in War Machine vs. Dog, freaking out about West Nile virus, and Sharklumbo

The Daily Word

An MMA fighter who legally changed his name to War Machine is on the run after assaulting his ex-girlfriend and breaking 18 of her bones. Both parties have been tweeting about the experience, and Dog the Bounty Hunter is tracking War Machine down because this is the world we live in.

Meet the Tyrant King of Beer Bottle Labels, and shudder at his bureaucratic might.

Perhaps you’d like to pour a bucket of ice water on your head? For some reason?

Increased rain means that you might have a few more mosquitoes buzzing around.Which means hey, why not? time to worry about West Nile virus.

Death came to town. And did a little dance. And freaked people out on the Interstate. As always when it comes to this sort of thing, we suspect Alibi correspondent Mike Smith had something to do with it.

And the Internet has turned Peter Falk into a shark.

Finally, a reminder: Don’t feed the coyotes. They’re on a special diet of outdoor house cats and backyard chickens.

Will the city’s agreement with ICE impact immigrant victims of domestic violence?

The city allowed la migra into the Prisoner Transport Center, where immigration agents conduct face-to-face interviews with everyone who is arrested and taken there. The city says it’s a better, less biased procedure than allowing Immigration Customs and Enforcement to look through the records at the jail and then choose to speak with those who have certain surnames or were born out of the country.

When I interviewed the ICE spokesperson, she was able to tell me how many people ICE had tagged from Albuquerque’s transport center since the agreement took effect in early May, but she couldn’t say who those people were, how old they are, where they were picked up, etc.

That’s a problem for advocates who say domestic violence victims who don’t speak English are sometimes arrested by mistake. Now, a victim could acquire an ICE hold in that situation. How would the advocates be able to discover something like that if information is not available about who’s been given a detainer?

The Albuquerque Police Department and the city assure that people who are arrested have to have been committing some kind of crime.

Domestic Violence Deniers

Congressman Ben Ray Lujan sent out a news release today announcing that he’s being targeted by Abusegate, Investigate!. According to its site, the group is bent on ending the “domestic violence industry.” But a further look at the principles and goals of the organization reveals some real gems. (My gift to you. Happy Thursday, everyone.)

Lujan is being singled out because he is one of 20 lawmakers who supports “discriminatory laws such as the International Violence Against Women Act that are known to violate fundamental civil rights and escalate partner tensions,” according to the news release.

Such laws contribute to the destruction of families, says the brain trust propelling Abusegate. There’s also a sister organization called Concerned Women for America that would like to “take the ‘gender’ politics and ‘politically correct’ agenda out of public policy solutions.”

Wha ... ?
