Derek Harkins: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

๐Ÿ“น
Derek Harkins leaving district court this morning after being released on 10K bail for allegedly biting a man's finger off during a melee @southersmarsh on Friday.

— Scott Sullivan (@SullyBunz)

Derek Harkins is the 46 year old golfer who allegedly bit off another man's index finger after an argument about golf this weekend.

Harkins, 46 years old, was arraigned in court in Boston on Monday on charges of "mayhem." Harkins works as a carpenter for the city of Brockton's Public Properties Department, which is in charge of maintaining public buildings.

Mayor Bill Carpenter told the media on Monday that they are investigating the incident and have put Harkins on administrative leave.

Here's what you need to know:


1. Harkins Pleaded 'Not Guilty' to Charges of Assault and Mayhem

46 year old Derek Harkins is accused of biting off the finger of a marshfield man on the golf course Friday evening. He will face a judge later this morning.

— Katie Thompson (@KThompson_WCVB)

Prosecutors brought a slew of charges against Harkins when he appeared in a Boston court on Monday — the 46 year old was charged with assault and battery, mayhem and disturbing the peace. Harkins himself had a "visible gash" on the left side of his forehead when he appeared in court on Monday, news reports said.

"Mayhem" is defined as: "Whoever, with malicious intent to maim or disfigure, cuts out or maims the tongue, puts out or destroys an eye, cuts or tears off an ear, cuts, slits or mutilates the nose or lip, or cuts off or disables a limb or member, of another person." Mayhem carries a maximum prison term of 20 years and a maximum fine of one thousand dollars.

Harkins entered a "not guilty" plea. He was released on $10,000 bail.


2. The Sound of the Finger Biting Allegedly Sounded Like 'Doritos'

"The noise created by Derek Harkins biting onto his finger sounded like 'someone chewing on a Dorito,' " read the report. http://bos.gl/Xi1RbyS 

— The Boston Globe (@BostonGlobe)

"The noise created by Derek Harkins biting onto his finger sounded like 'someone chewing on a Dorito,' " read the report. https://t.co/hfTwk2tWaZ

— The Boston Globe (@BostonGlobe) August 21, 2018

The victim in the case, 57 year old Daniel Menton, said that Harkins grabbed him by the wrist and began biting at his fingers. Menton said that when Harkins bit into his index finger, there was a loud crunching noise — just like the sound of someone biting into a Dorito.

Another golfer witnessed the fight and called 911. Firefighters rushed to the scene, and Menton was hurried to a local hospital.


3. Doctors Were Unable to Re-Attach the Finger

Derek Harkins was released on $10,000 bail after pleading not guilty Monday to charges including assault and battery. https://wgxa.tv/news/offbeat/man-charged-with-biting-golfers-finger-off-in-course-brawl-08-20-2018

— WGXA (@WGXAnews) August 21, 2018

After Harkins allegedly bit off Menton's finger, Menton's son put the finger into a plastic cup full of ice. He brought the finger along to the hospital where his father was receiving treatment. Doctors tried to re-attach the finger, but were unsuccessful.

Harkins told the court on Monday that Menton's finger ended up in his mouth and that he just bit down. Menton, though, says that Harkin had grabbed him by the wrist and started biting on his fingers.


4. Harkins Said He Was Just Defending His Father

Derek Harkins, seen here with a gash on his forehead, which court docs say was a result of golf course brawl.

— Katie Thompson (@KThompson_WCVB)

The fight took place on Friday evening at the Southers Marsh Golf Club in Plymouth. Harkins and his father were playing on the same course as Menton and his son. Apparently, the two groups had a dispute over the speed of play, and the argument got heated very quickly. Harkins was apparently upset that Menton was playing "too slowly." Witnesses said that Harkins smelled strongly of alcohol and was acting "like a madman" even before his started biting.

Harkins told the court that he was just trying to defend his father. According to court documents, Harkins said that Menton's finger ended up in his mouth and that he just bit down.


5. Harkins Has Been Ordered to Stay Away from Alcohol

Reporters follow Derek Harkins As he leaves court, charged with of a fellow golfer at golf course Friday. Witnesses say Harkins was upset group ahead was playing too slow & that he smelled of alcohol & was acting like when he attacked victim

— Kim Tunnicliffe (@KimWBZ)

The judge told Harkins to stay away from Menton — and to stop drinking alcohol. There is no public information about whether Harkins was intoxicated during the fight with Menton, which took place shortly before sunset on Friday.

If convicted of "mayhem," Harkins could be sentenced to up to 20 years in jail — and he could face a fine of up to 1000 dollars.

The Rude Pundit: Brett Kavanaugh's Lewinsky Memo Makes One Hell of a Poem

The Rude Pundit: Brett Kavanaugh's Lewinsky Memo Makes One Hell of a Poem

Brett Kavanaugh's Lewinsky Memo Makes One Hell of a Poem

If Monica Lewinsky Says...
A poem by Brett Kavanaugh

That you inserted a cigar
into her vagina while
you were in the Oval
Office area

That you had phone
sex with her on
approximately 15
occasions

That on several occasions
in the Oval
Office area,
you used your fingers
to stimulate her vagina and
bring her to
orgasm

That she gave you oral
sex on nine
occasions in the Oval
Office area

That you ejaculated
into her mouth on two
occasions in the Oval
Office area

That on several occasions
you had her
give her oral sex,
made her
stop,
and then
ejaculated
into the sink
in the bathroom
off the Oval
Office

That you masturbated
into a trash
can in your secretary's
office

Would she
be
lying?

(Note: All of this is from a memo Kavanaugh wrote urging prosecutors to attack President Bill Clinton in 1998. Kavanaugh was working for Kenneth Starr during the "investigation" into Clinton lying under oath about blow jobs, something that so outraged the future judge and current nominee to the Supreme Court that he blew a fucking gasket over it. He demanded that Starr tear into Clinton, and the man who would smile and bow and scrape to Donald fuckin' Trump said of Clinton, "The president has disgraced his office, the legal system and the American people by having sex with a 22-year-old intern and turning her life into a shambles — callous and disgusting behavior that has somehow gotten lost in the shuffle." Apparently, that only goes for Democrats. He'll gladly allow his entire career to come down to the blessings of a man who Kavanaugh has no qualms pretending hasn't disgraced the presidency.

While he supposedly would later "regret" this memo, he wrote it as an official document. If Twitter had been around and he had tweeted this kind of shit out, his career might well be over. Instead, he'll probably get a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land and fuck with the lives of Americans for decades.

Someone in this story is a cocksucker. And it ain't Monica Lewinsky.)

The Religion Issue | Politicizing Intelligence in Austria & America | Efficiency & Laziness - Daily Pnut

The Religion Issue | Politicizing Intelligence in Austria & America | Efficiency & Laziness

"Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is enemy action" – Ian Fleming

Politicizing Intelligence in Austria: As long as extremist groups stay on the fringes of government, independent state institutions can continue to function. Once anti-establishment, hard-line parties gain a foothold within government, they can begin taking control of systems meant to remain above politics—courts, the military, intelligence agencies. Many fanatical groups holding power in several European countries have close ties to Russia. In Austria the anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim rhetoric of the far-right Freedom Party continued gaining in popularity until elections in October 2017 put the party into power in a coalition with the center-right. The Freedom Party had been founded in the 1950s by former Nazi SS officers, and some of its current members share a nostalgia for Hitler's Third Reich. The party has a formal cooperation agreement with President Vladimir Putin's United Russia party.

The Freedom Party controls Austria's Interior Ministry, which is responsible for law and order. The country's main domestic intelligence agency, the BVT, is part of the Interior Ministry. In February 2018 Freedom Party bosses ordered a police raid on the agency's offices, along with top spy service officials working at home. Some of the nation's most sensitive secrets were carted off in open crates and plastic bags. The basis for the search warrant was flimsy and transparent; critics called it an absurd pretext for a politically motivated stab at an independent institution that could threaten the party's agenda. The decision to target the agency responsible for defending the country against a multitude of threats, including right-wing extremism, was so shocking other foreign services have stopped sharing intelligence information with Austria for fear it would wind up in the wrong hands. One European intelligence official said: "The alarms are going off…(the raid) reminds me of what autocrats would do."

Additional read: "The Bride Was a Dream in a Dirndl, but Putin Stole the Show: President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia has always shown a mastery for playing to the cameras, whether posing bare-chested on horseback, dancing with Tartars or riding Harleys with bikers. On Saturday, that command was on display again, this time as the Russian leader made a brief personal appearance in the Styrian Alps at the wedding of Austria's foreign minister, before continuing north to Germany where he was to hold talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel."

THE TRUTH is Trump's campaign had 75 contacts with Russia WHILE Russia was attacking election.

THE TRUTH is 5 Trump campaign advisors and 26 Russians have been charged.

THE TRUTH is Russia is attacking our elections and Trump is attacking the investigation into Russia's attack.

Trump is finally on solid ground with "Truth is not truth". He can continue to lie, obstruct & conspire because now he can fall back on the "I'm out of my fucking mind defense". But we can't let that stop us from swarming the polls on Nov.6. VOTE!!!

One of the most common things I hear from Trump supporters:

Trump is so altruistic because he gave up his entire salary as President...

It's all a fraud. He gave up a $400k salary and rolled back the inheritance tax, which will save his Family over $2 BILLION!

Weekend Read // Issue 93

"Half-baked maggot." "If he wants to be a female, make him a female. A good sharp knife will do the job really quick."

That's what adults in Oklahoma had to say this week about a transgender middle schooler named Maddie who used the girls' bathroom during her first week at Achille Public Schools. She is 12 years old.

A parent's post on Facebook — "the transgender [sic] is already using the girls [sic] bathroom" — attracted adults from outside of the school district. In just a few hours, hundreds of shockingly violent comments had proliferated.

"Let Parker whip his ass until he quits coming to school," wrote one man. Sixteen people reacted with "likes" and "laughing" emojis.

Tell students to beat up Maddie in the bathroom, wrote another, so "it [sic] won't want to come back!"

Achille Independent School District shut down for two days, concerned that it could not keep Maddie and other students safe. Maddie's mom obtained an order of protection after she said the husband of the parent who wrote the original post blocked her in the road and "verbally assaulted" her after they dropped their children off at school.

In rural towns and throughout the South, these are the stakes of LGBT bigotry — stakes that Alabamian Nathan Mathis knows only too well. Mathis lost his daughter Patti Sue to suicide in 1994 when she was just 23 years old.

"I regret very much the mean things I said to Patti when I found out she was gay," Mathis said from the pulpit of Unlimited Ministries, an LGBT-friendly church in Madison, Alabama, on Father's Day. "I realize now there was nothing wrong with Patti. Something was wrong with me."

Pattie Sue's death plunged Mathis into a deep depression. "There's a while there where you don't care if you live or die," he told Tori Truscheit for BuzzFeed News.

Truscheit wrote a long feature on parents fighting for their LGBT children's rights in Alabama, inspired, in part, by a video that went viral last year of Mathis protesting at a Roy Moore rally. As Truscheit writes:

What stood out about Mathis wasn't just that he supported LGBT rights like few straight white men of his generation. What's rare and compelling about Mathis is that he transformed his grief into tangible solidarity, putting his body on the line for queer and trans people.

For too many LGBT Alabamians, the idea of their own parents doing that is tragically far-fetched.

"It would mean the world to me," Lawrence Haliburton told Truscheit. "Doing anything would just be a big step for either one of them."

"If [my mom] was out there with me trying to push for LGBT rights and all that, I'd be overwhelmed," Jasmine McIntosh added.

The LGBT community is facing a slew of attacks from groups that want to enshrine bigotry into federal law, and a hate crime epidemic that stretches from coast to coast.

But nowhere is the ground for organizing and deep transformation of bigotry into acceptance more fertile than it is in the South. As Truscheit writes:

In other parts of the country, better laws may protect LGBT rights, but superficial "tolerance" can mask bigotry right below the surface. The challenges of the Deep South, in contrast to milquetoast acceptance elsewhere, can forge a deep commitment to change.

"There's almost an element of defiance for me in claiming my home," Dana Sweeney, 23, told me ... present[ing] ... a coffee mug with a quote from activist Grace Lee Boggs on it: "The most radical thing I ever did was to stay put."

That's certainly what Maddie plans to do.

"I'm going to keep my head held up high and stay strong and go to school," she told The New York Times. "And won't let those bullies drag me down."

Neither will we.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-8255. For LGBT-specific services, the Trevor Lifeline is 1-866-488-7386. Other international suicide helplines can be found at befrienders.org.
