Florida Man Hops Out of Car to Knock Down 70-Year-Old at Crosswalk

Friend to the elderly.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have ourselves a huge d-bag.

John McNally, 43, is no friend to the elderly, and he probably hates dogs, little kids, baseball, the Olympics, and America too. The Boca Raton resident was out driving with his wife and 4-year-old daughter on Sunday when he flipped his wig in what is probably the worst road-rage incident we've seen in some time.

Categories: Crime

Police are still awaiting the autopsy results of Weston native and FSU student, Ryan Uhre, whose body was discovered on the rooftop of a building in Tallahassee on Wednesday after he had vanished for nearly two weeks.

Uhre's disappearance has been a high-profile case, hitting close to home and coming to a sudden and tragic ending.

The story is also intriguing, as the reasons Uhre disappeared remain a mystery. And since police found no evidence of foul play, questions also remain as to how the FSU student may have died, or how he may have ended up on a rooftop above a bar.

Prosecutors, meanwhile, say that they might ask the judge for consecutive sentences, meaning Hadley would spend 50 years in jail before he was eligible for parole.

Categories: Crime, WTFlorida

Craigslist can be a shady place. While it may be good for purchasing a used ottoman or a bicycle pump and also good for the occasional missed connection hook-up, it can also be a great place to go if you want to get properly mugged.

That's what happened to at least one armed-robbery victim of Lauderhill man Keith Victor Bray, according to cops.

Fort Lauderdale police say Bray, 35, allegedly used Craigslist to rob someone of $400. Unfortunately for Bray, however, his scheme worked too well and ultimately got him pinched.

West Palm Beach's Most Wanted Criminals

IowaYoder/Flikr Commons
Our justice system is the string that holds the fabric of civilized society together. There would be no repercussions for murder, rape, and all sorts of horrible things humans are capable of doing without it. And without punishment and discipline against those who commit these crimes, people would be forced to seek justice on their own in twisted and bloody ways.

The West Palm Beach Police Department lists three people in its most wanted section. These three people are accused of attempting murder and then fleeing the area before they could go through the process to either clear their name or serve for the crimes a jury found them guilty of committing, leaving the families of their victims with little sense of closure. Anyone with any information is urged to call 561-822-1900.
