  1. “The medical examiner’s office said the cause of his death was pending further study.” But the article already gave the cause of death: “arrested on charges of fighting police officers”…

  2. Gay marriage gone bad??

    Police said Samuel See, 34, was arrested Saturday night after allegedly attacking officers who responded to reports of a disturbance in his home.

    According to detectives, See’s estranged husband, 32-year-old Sunder Ganglani, had stopped by the house to pick up his belongings and stayed there for more than two hours in violation of an order of protection.

    Mr See asked police to remove his spouse from his residence, to which the officers responded that Ganglani also had an order of protection against him.

    If you wish to take a non-violent situation and turn it violent, simply call a cop. It will get real violent, real quick.
