Crazy woman in Houston starts fire in office because she was late with the TPS reports April 9, 2007

Posted by daveintexas in Current Events.

She was late with an accreditation audit, and feared her boss, a plastic surgeon, was about to fire her.

Give the fire department investigator credit for saying “fearful of being discharged” instead of “fired”.

So she started a fire in the office, to distract everyone from the tardy report.  3 people were killed, and 6 injured, including firefighters. 

She is charged with 3 counts of felony murder and one felony arson charge.

Apparently she did not intend for things to get out of hand.  She just thought she could buy a little time.

A friend of mine has an expression for this kind of thinking.  If you don’t think too good, don’t think too long.

Yeah, but how did the cover page look? Didn’t she get the memo? Musta been having a case of the Mondays.

She certainly had enough “flare.” Nyuk, nyuk.

Come On … do You believe this story?
I mean any girrrrrl would do anything
for getting carried away by a fire-fighter
even IF the price is Fiiiiired!

I predict an insanity defense.

Meaning?

Her lawyer will argue she is insane, and therefore not responsible for the death of three and injury of others.

If I were the DA, I’d argue she’s just damned stupid, and her stupidity caused unecessary grief and sadness for three families.

“Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury…my client is a moron.”

Exhibit A: videotape I took in my office, of my client trying to get the last chips out of a can of Pringles™. As you can see, she has inserted her whole forearm inside the can…

Ooooo.. the moron defense.

Good counter to the DA.

I would let her testify too. Seal the deal.

Her punishment should be having to let the plastic surgeon do whatever he wants with her face.

Wisdom of effing Solomon – that’s what I’m all about.

Exhibit B: Photograph of bloody cuts on my client’s upper forearm from the Pringles™ can.
It never occurred to her to turn the can over, Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury.
Even while she was cutting herself to ribbons, it never occurred to her to do anything but cry.

Your Honor, may I request a short recess to allow the jury to collect itself.

Angry.

Goobers.

Her asshole lawyer said on the first day that he was going to make sure the confession was obtained legally. The bitch killed 3 people. She confessed. End of discussion for me. Plus he said he wanted the bond lowered from $330,000 because she’d never been in trouble before. I hope there’s a special circle in hell for defense attorneys.

I worry about trials in Houston.

I just worry about Houston.
