    Pretty loony story all the way around - An ex football player thinks his daughter is possessed so he sacrifices a poodle in a barbecue grill. Reporter is sent to cover the story, and takes a dump on the guys front lawn.





    KPHO television journalist Jonathan Lowe did a crappy thing, and now he’s paying the price.

    [​IMG]Lowe was on assignment Monday covering a story about a former Arizona State University football player who sacrificed his family’s dog in a smoker in a fit of religious rage when nature called, the Phoenix New Times reports.

    “Lowe chose to use the front yard of a residence to relieve himself,” Goodyear, Arizona police spokeswoman Lisa Kutis told the news site. “An onlooker from across the street called it in to officers. They approached him, he said he’d had to relieve himself, and they arrested him.”

    According to Lowe’s KPHO news report, police arrested former Arizona State University football player Patrick Zane Thompson, 42, after he became irate with the shirt his 17-year-old daughter was wearing and burned it in a large barbeque cooker at his home.

    Thompson said he had a vision earlier in the day something bad would happen to his family, and he believed his daughter’s shirt was demonic, according to the report.

    “When Thompson went back into the house … he got more erratic and told his family, in front of his four minor children, that he needed to make a sacrifice of a male,” Lowe wrote. “According to the victims, Thompson stated it had to be either himself, his firstborn 6-year-old son or the family dog – a small, white poodle weighing about 15 pounds.”

    Clearly the wrong choice was made. It should have been himself!

    Something tells me the "marijuana" had nothing to do with this.

    So who's the bad guy? The shirt-burner or the lawn-pooper?

    I'd say the dog burner has the edge, but they do seem do deserve eachother in some odd way.

    well at least it was on the lawn so itll eventually be used somewhat as fertilizer. better than in SF when people just have their pets pissing all over the concrete side walks so it doesn't get absorbed in the nitrogen cycle and the whole place smells like piss. but oh WAIT there's also poop (is it pets or humans? you can't really be too sure these days)

    Absolutely nothing, Meister is just one of the few old school chauvinists on PRSI.

    To me she looks like she might've eaten some kids in the neighborhood.

    They better look into that!

    I bet good money the player has CTE, or whatever that traumatic brain disease is called.
    One of the symptoms is irritability and violence.
