Spider monkey found dead wearing bullet proof vest after cartel shootout in Mexico

Spider monkey found dead wearing bullet proof vest after cartel shootout in Mexico

A spider monkey wearing a bulletproof vest and other body armor was found dead after a shootout between a drug cartel and the police in Mexico on Tuesday. 

The monkey was believed to have belonged to the cartel group. It was killed in a shootout in Texcaltitlán, a town 63 miles southwest of Mexico City. 

Images of the monkey appeared online after the shootout. It was wearing a camouflage jacket, a small ‘bulletproof’ vest, and a diaper. 

It is unclear exactly how the monkey was killed although it’s suspected that it got caught in the gunfire. 

“A primate was killed at the scene, which was presumably owned by a criminal who was also at the scene,” state prosecutors said in a statement. 

“An autopsy will be carried out on the animal by a veterinarian specialized in the species,” read a statement from the State of Mexico.”

The primate wasn’t the only one killed at the scene. 11 gang members were also fatally shot. Seven gang members were arrested, and some were injured. 

The shootout occurred after the gang members allegedly attacked local security forces in the State of Mexico municipality. 

They appeared in court on Saturday and were identified as members of the Familia Michoacana cartel, who have been accused of attempted murder and other charges. They are due to appear in court again in the next few days. 

In accordance with Mexican tradition, the deceased monkey received its own corrida, a folk ballad composed in honor of dead drug cartel members. “Life is very short, it wasn’t the monkey’s turn (to die),” the lyrics said. 

Authorities are considering adding animal trafficking to the long list of charges the suspects are now facing. 

The keeping of exotic pets is permitted in Mexico with a license, but gang members often forgo the licensing. The owning of animals like monkeys and tigers is considered a status symbol for cartels and gangs.

How flight attendants react after they see passengers joining the mile high club

How flight attendants react after they see passengers joining the mile high club

As a flight attendant, you’re likely to see it all. Recently, a Reddit poster sent out a general query asking, “Flight Attendants of Reddit, upon discovering a mile-high club attempt, do you bust the culprits or allow the mischief makers to get away with it?’

One crew member replied, “We had one flight to Rome that was rather interesting.” 

“The couple didn’t know each other at the start of the flight, and despite being on opposite ends of business class, somehow found a way to be in the same seat mid-flight.” 

“They decided to go at it sans-blanket, at which point we had to ask them to separate for the rest of the flight.”

“On a different flight I had a couple ask if they could stand in the galley for a few minutes to stretch their legs.” 

“I heard her moaning, and I turned and looked, and the guy had her pinned up against my coffee makers with his hand up her shirt.” 

“I promptly told them to remove themselves from the galley and either finish up in the lav, or head back to their seats and keep their hand to themselves. If I can’t get it on in my galley, no one can get it on in my galley.”

Another flight attendant weighed in saying, “FA here! I’d allow it. If you can maneuver well enough to have a sexually pleasing performance in an aircraft lavatory that’s covered in thousands of germs, go for it!” 

A passenger also commented saying, “On a flight to Switzerland a couple of years ago, there was a couple who ‘mile-high clubbed’ a couple of times over the course of the flight. 

“The final time was right before breakfast was being served and the flight attendant had everyone on the plane give them a round of applause for being the most consistent passengers she had ever seen.” 

Judging from the response, it seems as if it’s not too difficult to mile high on a flight, but there were attendants who commented they wouldn’t allow it. 

Others warned that bathroom doors can open from the outside even if they are locked. Still others let readers known that the crew can have you arrested upon landing as having sex on an airplane is illegal

Would you take the risk?

Woman’s 50th birthday turns into Shameless style brawl caught on viral video

Woman’s 50th birthday turns into Shameless style brawl caught on viral video

Every family fights, but here’s one that turned a 50th birthday party in Colne, Lancaster, England into a viral event. 

Lisa Keegan was enjoying her birthday celebration when a family friend, Adam, 40, snatched an e-cigarette from one of the teenagers at the party. 

Lisa’s daughter’s boyfriend Tony, 52, came to the boy’s aid and the situation got heated

Soon the two men were exchanging drunken punches with quite a few hitting the birthday girl instead of the intended subject. 

Lisa finally managed to break the men up and made it final by throwing a chair Tony’s way. 

The scene was caught on video and ended up going viral. The family was quoted on what happened and, fortunately, had a sense of humor about it. 

“You’re only 50 once and this is certainly a birthday I’ll never forget, it was mayhem,” said Lisa. 

“Adam was just winding people up, and he took (a lad’s) e-cig. Tony stuck up for him, but instead of punching Adam, he was punching me. 

“They couldn’t pack a punch because everyone was so drunk. I was in the middle of them to break it up, but I should have just left them to it. 

“The video’s hilarious. It’s like something out of Shameless. I was like a meme. When I fell over backwards, I just started laughing. Even the dog was barking to tell them off.

“When I watched it back, I thought, ‘oh my days’. I was embarrassed. We’ve been getting a lot of stick about it, but some people are calling me a legend. 

“A lot of my friends thing it’s brilliant.”

Tony managed to find the humor in it as well. 

“It’s funny to watch back. My girlfriend was falling over, Lisa was shouting and yelling. Everyone’s falling all over the place. 

“Adam was being cocky, but we were all p*ssed up. It was more funny than anything else. He’s not my mate but I know him. He’s a nice lad. 

“I accidentally threw a few punches at her, but I didn’t mean to. I didn’t even know. I was more tired than anything. I’m too old for that sort of thing. 

“There wasn’t anything malicious in it. We sorted it out and the police gave me a lift home,” Tony said referring to the Lancaster police showing up and escorting him home. 

The video was posted on social media and racked up over 13,000 shares and 300 comments.

10 months into marriage, woman finds out her husband is actually a WOMAN

10 months into marriage, woman finds out her husband is actually a WOMAN

It may not be unusual to find out things you never knew about your spouse months after you’ve been married, but discovering they’re another gender? Now that’s odd. 

Yet that’s exactly what happened to an Indonesian woman who has come forward claiming she was married for ten months to a man who turned out to be a woman

The wife, known only as NA in legal documents, said she met her husband, AA, through online dating. 

AA claimed she was a surgeon in the coal business. They got married in a secret ceremony as AA could not produce the civil documents required for a legal ceremony. 

In Indonesia, where they lived, a secret wedding is not recognized by law, but it is recognized by religion. 

The two began living in NA’s parents house in Indonesia. During their marriage, AA repeatedly asked NA’s parents for money. The parents were suspicious as to why AA kept asking for money being that he (she) supposedly had an impressive career. 

AA eventually moved NA out of her parent’s house to live in South Sumatra where she was confined to their home for several months. NA said AA controlled their finances while they were there. 

NA’s mother became worried because she did not hear from her daughter for some time, and she contacted the police to track them down. 

It was during a police interview that AA revealed she was actually a woman whose initials were EY.

NA shared her story on social media. When asked about sexual relations, she said her partner would always turn off the lights and insist she wear a blindfold during sex. 

The parents are claiming that EY conned them out of over $20,000. They are currently suing for damages.

Ex-soldier found guilty of murdering neighbors over parking dispute

Ex-soldier found guilty of murdering neighbors over parking dispute

An ex-commando was found guilty of murdering his two neighbors over a parking dispute. He is facing life in prison. 

Collin Reeves, 35, has been on trial for the murder of his neighbors, Jennifer and Stephen Chapple since November of 2021 at Bristol Crown Court in England. The murder weapon was a ceremonial dagger. 

CCTV footage captured the ex-soldier scaling a garden fence and entering his neighbors’ home screaming, “Die you f**kers, die!”

Once inside, he stabbed Jennifer, 33, and Stephen, 36. 

Reeves lived next door to the Chapples and had fallen out with the couple over a parking dispute. He had several angry exchanges with the pair and called Mrs. Chapple a “f**king c***” and a “fat bitch”.

The ex-soldier admits that he stabbed the couple but denies murder. He pleaded to a lesser charge of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility. 

Reeves is an Afghanistan veteran who underwent rigorous commando training and served with the Royal Engineers. He used the ceremonial dagger he had been given when he left the army to kill the Chapples. 

The jury heard that Reeves had been having trouble in his marriage and his wife, Kayley, had asked for a trial separation just 40 minutes before the attack.

After the murders occurred, Reeves can be heard in the background of an emergency call telling someone, “I couldn’t let her torment Kayley anymore.”

Forensic psychiatrist for the defense Dr. Lucy Bacon found Reeves to be suffering from moderate depression at the time the murders took place. 

She believes the depression played a part in the murders, but she doesn’t think it caused him to do what he did therefore finding that he did not meet the criteria for diminished responsibility. 

She also noted that he regressed to Army mode while at the police station and possibly during the killings. He gave his name as “Lance Corporal Collin Reeves” and was quoted as saying, “I was just doing my job- it was an operation.”

Later, at the trial, Reeves said, “I feel ashamed- disgusted with myself for what I’ve done. For the pain and suffering, I caused. 

“The two boys will never see their mum and dad again because of me. I cannot understand why I did it.” 

Reeves claimed he could not remember a time between sitting at the bottom of the steps with the dagger crying and the time he was back in the living room with his wife screaming. 

Forensic psychiatrist for the prosecution, Dr. John Sanford refers to this as dissociative amnesia and said it was not a contributing factor to the murders. 

“The main factor in committing this offense is about the dispute between the two families,” Sanford said. 

The Chappels’ family released a statement that included the following quotes.

“We now ask that we are left to process this in our own way, to be able to grieve properly and move forward as best we can.

“We will now focus on Jennifer and Stephen’s beautiful boys helping them to live the life that Jennifer and Stephen would have wished for them.”
