Scum of the Week – Maniac Honda Driver of Harlem

Okay, if you’re driving a “tricked out” Honda Pilot, then you’re already certified scum. Seriously just those words all put together are terrible. Tricked. Out. Honda. Pilot. Disgusting should be added onto that. So it’s bad enough if you’re the proud owner of a tricked out Honda Pilot, but it’s a hundred times worse if hit your wife with it and then kept going and proceeded to flip before getting on the highway. That’s just what some foolish Harlem resident did on Saturday. Talk about instant karma, this ass-faced moron was taking double doses after his craziness. Here’s an excerpt from the New York Daily News:

A maniac driver mowed down his wife in Midtown and then sped off, leaving her half-naked body in the street – and then later flipped his car on the Harlem River Drive, police said.

The 28-year-old driver was in serious condition at Harlem Hospital after he wrecked his tricked-out Honda Pilot near the on-ramp to the George Washington Bridge.

The 23-year-old victim, meanwhile, was in critical condition at Bellevue Hospital Saturday, hours after the wild 3 a.m. accident on W. 46th St.

Investigators are still piecing together what led to the chaotic scene, but witnesses said the victim was working at the El Tequilazo bar in the moments before she was injured.

She was sent flying after she was struck by the Honda –  which had a customized Superman theme on its front bumper and her husband behind the wheel, witnesses and police sources said.

Investigators could not say if the man deliberately ran over his wife, or if she fell after trying to hold onto the car.

Hopefully this idiot’s wife recovers from this and proceeds to divorce his prison-bound ass. And hopefully Mr. Honda will never be able to drive again once he recovers in the hospital.

Scum of the Week – Bank of America

In a time when homes are being foreclosed on left and right, and the big bad banks are taking advantage of people all over the place, it’s nice to finally see some irony launched their way. Bank of America wrongly tried to foreclose on a couple’s home in Florida, that they paid for in full, so the couple retaliated by… foreclosing on the bank itself. Check it out Yahoo! here:

In a modern-day evocation of David’s slingshot triumph over Goliath, a couple of foreclosed homeowners in Naples, Florida reportedly foreclosed on a Bank of America branch last week, their attorney actually having moving trucks pull up in front of a Naples branch to execute a foreclosure judgment against the bank.

What must have seemed to observers like a scene out of a parallel universe – you can see some video here – was actually the fair and logical conclusion to a situation which, the court had ruled, had an unfair and illogical start. In 2009, retired police officer Warren Nyerges and his wife, Maureen Collier, paid $165,000 cash for their 2,700 square foot home in the Golden Gate Estates subdivision, and never took a mortgage out on it. So imagine their surprise when, in Februrary of 2010, Bank of America initiated foreclosure proceedings against them. The Nyerges hired an attorney, Todd Allen, to defend them against the wrongful foreclosure, and the Bank eventually abandoned the matter.

But not before the Nyerges incurred $2,534 in attorney’s fees, which they requested informally from Bank of America multiple times before resorting to the courts, which ordered the bank to make the couple whole. When B of A still had not paid the judgment after five months of phone calls and letter writing by Allen and the Nyerges to the bank insisting that the court order be obeyed, Allen took the next step in the legal collection process, obtaining an order of foreclosure against the bank.

Now, I know that the banks aren’t necessarily evil but don’t expect me to take pity on them. They’re doing just fine. I guess they shouldn’t have taken so long to get these people their money back. Seriously? A five month delay in giving the money back? If only the banks were so forgiving. I’m sure this will create a precedent for banks in the future to make sure they have their shit together, or the scum sucking money lovers can get in line to be foreclosed on just like Bank of America!

Scum Of The Week – Estella Warren

I know that celebrities usually have a slight run in with the law every now and then. Most times it involves drinking and driving, but this one involves model and actress (kind of) Estella Warren not only drinking and driving but also crashing into three parked cars…. then she kept driving. But the fun doesn’t end there, Estella keeps bumping her scum level up a few notches.

Not only did she endanger people’s lives by drinking and driving but she kept going after hitting those cars and in some way assaulted one of the officers arresting her for the DUI. Then she somehow managed to get out of her handcuffs and almost escape from the police station after being detained in a holding room! Pretty secure police station you guys have there! If only she would have shown this kind of energy in Planet of the Apes it might not have sucked so bad! Apparently our officers of the law need to be on the lookout for ex-models, because they’re the world’s most dangerous escape artists.

So congrats Ms. Warren, you managed to get arrested for suspicion of DUI, felony battery of a police officer and felony escape attempt charges. What an eventful night. For those three strikes you’re an ideal winner for Scum of the Week!

Scum of the Week – The Two Millionaire Food Stamp User

This week’s dirty peice of scum comes in the form of not a celebrity, not a world championship basketball team, not a shitty looking hat or an evil family friendly corporation. No this one was an every man. A regular joe who was lucky and fortunate enough to win the lottery. Yes, 59 year old Leroy Fick is still using his bridge card (food stamps) even though he is a 2 millionaire. And what’s worse? He doesn’t feel bad about it. He reasons that if the government is going to be taking half the lotto winnings in taxes then he should still be able to use his food stamps. What scum ridden turd. Of course it goes without saying that there are thousands of people out there who really do need this kind of assistance and they aren’t millionaires.

I really hope he bought the ticket with his food stamps

I’m glad my tax dollars go to scum suckers like this, it makes me feel good about going to work everyday so a millionaire leech can take advantage of the system. I actually applaud Michigan officials for working on getting his food stamps revoked. Mr. Fick, maybe after you squander your million dollars you can reapply for your bridge card. Scum bag.

Scum of The Week – The L.A. Lakers

So the Lakers have done it… they were swept out of the Western Conference Semi-finals of the NBA Playoffs by the Dallas Mavericks. Needless to say everyone on that Lakers team should be ashamed of themselves. The final score was 122-86, so that qualifies as an old fashioned prison pounding, not to mention Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom were both ejected for playing like dirty turd sniffers. Odom decided to basically give Dirk Nowitzki a nice hard shouldering and Bynum thought it a good idea to forearm J.J. Barea in the ribs in mid lay-up. True scum!

Classy move Bynum

And this is not even mentioning the “Great” Kobe Bryant having a rather lackluster game. 17 points? 1 assist? Holy dog shit Kobe! So much for all of those Jordan comparisons, so much for the three-peat, so much for Phil Jackson’s last season of coaching. It turns out the guy should have just retired on a high note last year instead of this epic embarrassment!

Bottom line: These guys didn’t play like last year’s NBA Champions, they played like a bunch of sore losers who were swept out of the playoffs… which they were. But most of all, they played like SCUM!
