Wasting Food - Wasting People
- Opening statements have begun in the Iowa attempted murder trial of 23-year-old Derrick Roberts, a Chicago man who prosecutors say shot a woman because one of her relatives hit him with a doughnut.
The Chicago resident is also charged with intimidation with a dangerous weapon and willful injury for allegedly shooting 50-year-old Delores Smith of Cedar Rapids while she was in a parked van with other family members a year ago.
Prosecutors say Roberts riddled the van with gunfire because a relative of Smith's had earlier struck him in the leg with a powdered sugar doughnut she was throwing away.
Unless of course, the victim has a father who runs a regional trucking firm. Then our money would have to be on the doughnut getting 20 years to life.
