Not a Joke

Every so often, people hear about the "turkey leg" murder or some similar example of the complete depravity human beings manage to inflict on one another. We've had non-police tell us they don't believe it, that no one could be that petty. These people are usually liberal in temperament, so we make allowances for their ignorance.

But this is a rather recent story - just a few days ago:
  • HOUSTON - A man has been arrested and charged for allegedly stabbing a friend to death for taking the last piece of chicken at dinner, according to a report.

    Reinaldo Cardoso Rivera, 38, has been charged with murder after police say he killed 34-year-old Darwin Perez Gonzalez on October 30.

    According to police, five men were eating and drinking in an apartment when Gonzalez took the last piece of chicken. Rivera then became angry, started an argument, and eventually both men went outside to have a fist fight.

    During the fight, police say Rivera pulled out a knife and fatally stabbed Gonzalez. He then fled the scene, but later returned and admitted to police what he had allegedly done.
That better have been the best damn chicken he ever had, because we heard the Texas Department of Corrections can't prepare a chicken to save their lives.

It all boils down to a matter of traditional courtesy and machismo.

Rivera believed the chicken was finger licken each good while Gonzalez kicked the bucket.
In the event of a violent life taking stabbing there truly is no wonder why a chicken would cross the road.

I worked in Pullman in the early 1990s. We led the city in food homicides. We had themes for these homicides like:

(1). Who ate the last pork chop?
(2). Who ate all the green beans?
(3). Who ate the turkey leg? (On Thanksgiving, you could count on that one.)

Back then, nobody was politically correct, so you could use humor to deal with the insanity.

Yeah, the one standing there playing with a lighter and making threats, with the kids in a bathtub full of gasoline? That didn't happen either.

Talk about "negotiation." This is why the policemen are out back in their garage later, talking quietly over a bottle a good whiskey...

But was the chicken better than the pork chop that someone was killed over years back here in Chicago?

I knew a guy who beat his father for the last Old Style 1/2 Quart in the house, circa 1981. And they were white. Mean motherfuckers from Harlan County.

I had a case where a nephew killed his uncle by running a broken broom handle through his neck because he had the TV on too loud.

Dating back to the 70's and 80's 'ondajob' not only was it a common occurrence on Thanksgiving, but we had a ghoul pool to guess the District/Time of the 'first' stabbing/shooting.
We called it the 'DM' lottery. Many coppers thought it was an acronym for 'Dumb Mother-------s' but that was too broad a range for a pool.
It actually started out as the 'Drumstick Massacre' lottery.
Never won, but it... Never Failed!

Last time I worked Thanksgiving in 010(2007) dude got pissed at his female and took a garbage bag and dumped the whole tables worth of food in it and started to walk out after an argument since he paid for it. She jumped on his back and beat his ass along with the daughter. Gotta love the west side for good family entertainment!

Reminds me of the pork "chop story" of about 20 years ago. One brother stabbed and killed the other after taking his pork chop, I remember the quote reported in the Chicago newspaper paper verbatim...."I loved him, he was my brother, but that was my pork chop".

True story

We need more info to see if Darwin is eligible for a Darwin Award. I believe that the main requirement is that the nominee must be childless.

It had better been one DA** GOOD chicken leg. Much of Texas Department of Corrections does not have air conditioning. Texas.

I feel for the officers in that situation, but at least it's as close to hell as the law allows for those convicted.
Are prison units air conditioned?

All Texas prisons have a heating system, but only certain units such as the prison hospital and psychiatric units have air conditioning.

I bet it went like this...they all are sitting around the dining table, most of the dishes have been cleared and the coffee started, when one guy says, oh my, there is one piece of chicken left, who would like it? Another guy says, it was so delicious, but I couldn't, please, you have it. Then another chimes in and says, you cooked, you should enjoy it, after all, you worked so hard making this amazing meal. Then they all laugh and the guy who pointed out that there was that one piece left says, well, gee, if none of you will have it then I guess I must force myself to have it. They all laugh some more, and everyone there knows that he wanted it all along, but none of them say so. How anyone ended up with a knife sticking out of them just doesn't make sense!

It used to be in Chicago that every holiday season, from Thanksgiving through Christmas, there would be news reports of family members stabbing each other over a turkey leg.

That seems to have abated somewhat, probably because they all get their fill with that bbq turkey leg monstrosity that they always serve at Taste of Chicago.
