Alligator Cruelty

Methinks, America is a loony bin! 

A 32-year-old Florida man is accused of wrestling with an alligator that he stole from a miniature golf course and later trying to hurl it onto the roof of a cocktail bar. 

After his throwing skills failed him, he was seen holding the gator by the tail and trying to whack it against the ground. 

When police caught up with him and then asked William "Bubba" Hodge what caused the cruel behavior toward the alligator, he said he was "teaching it a lesson." A lesson on what, exactly, was unclear. 

Police charged him "with five offenses, including the felonies of Animal Cruelty, Possession/Injury of an Alligator, and Burglary", according to Daytona Beach Shores Public Safety's Facebook page. It is said that it is highly unlikely these charges will teach the brute any lessons at all. 

Former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein (left) pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to charges of rape and sexual assault in Los Angeles, USA ahead of a second trial. 

He faced eleven charges of attacking five women between 2004 to 2013. They include forcible rape, forcible oral copulation, sexual battery by restraint, and sexual penetration by use of force. 

If convicted, Weinstein could spend the rest of his life in prison. 

Sixty-nine-year-old Weinstein arrived at Los Angeles Superior Court for his first appearance there in a wheelchair, wearing a brown jail uniform, after being extradited from New York on Tuesday where he is serving 23 years in prison for rape and other sexual offences.
