Man Accused of Attacking Girlfriend with Medieval Sword, High On 8 Hits Of Acid

A 20-year-old man from Baton Rouge allegedly attacked his girlfriend with a medieval sword while high on 8 hits of acid before resisting arrest.

Troy Seals was booked Saturday on aggravated second-degree battery of a domestic partner in addition to the battery of a police officer, according to The Advocate.

It seemingly began with a “Netflix and chill” gone, well, really bad. Seals’s girlfriend told police that they were watching Netflix while smoking weed on Saturday afternoon. At some point, Seals allegedly decided to escalate the activities by consuming 8 hits of acid, an affidavit says. Not long after ingesting LSD, the woman claimed Seals began “being anti-Semitic and making white supremacy remarks.”

Soon, it got physical. Seals allegedly began punching his girlfriend in the face. According to the affidavit, Seals then allegedly attacked her with a medieval sword. The girlfriend suffered contusions on her limbs and a fractured forearm.

Florida Legislature Rejects Weapons Ban Days After Parkland School Shooting

Following the deadly massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the state’s lawmakers have voted to reject gun legislation. As CNN reported, the Florida state House voted down a motion to consider a ban on semiautomatic guns and large capacity magazines on Tuesday. The lawmakers, mostly Republicans, rejected the motion by 36-71.

The vote took place during a session that opened with a prayer for the 17 people killed in Parkland. Students from the massacre were in attendance during the vote and spoke out about the outcome.

“It was just so heartbreaking to see how many (voters’) names were up there, especially after it was my school,” said Sheryl Acquaroli, a 16-year-old junior from Stoneman Douglas. “It seemed almost heartless how they immediately pushed the button to say no.”

She said that these lawmakers are at fault for the next person who is killed by an automatic weapon, like

Man Restrained Wife In Stocks, Chained Up Son As Part Of ‘Ritualized Abuse’

For many who practice religion, their faith isn’t an excuse to demean and abuse people. But for Dana Andrew Furtney, 49, of Priest River, Idaho, it was.

For years, Furtney physically, sexually and verbally abused his wife and several children, which he justified through his religious beliefs, reported the Idaho Statesman. On Thursday, Furtney was convicted of sexual abuse of a child, ritualized abuse, domestic violence and multiple counts of lewd conduct. It only took two hours for the jurors to deliberate and come to this conclusion. His sentencing is scheduled for May.

The abuse took place at the Furtney family home in Priest River from 2009 to 2013, reported the Statesman. He was accused of chaining his son inside a tunnel located on their property and tying him to an outhouse wall for an entire week. The boy was given limited food and water, according to the Bonner County
