Florida Woman Shoots Husband In Testicles For Trying To Take Her Air Conditioner

Published

on

A Florida woman was arrested after she allegedly shot her estranged husband in the testicles for trying to take an air conditioner she was trying to sell on Facebook. The victim and his brother are said to have come to 35-year-old Kimberly Dunn’s home in Lake City to pick up the AC that she’d listed for sale online. She sat on it to keep him from taking it, and when he tried to move her, that’s when things got violent.

Dunn first used a stun gun on her soon-to-be ex-husband first. Dunn and the victim were going through a divorce at the time, but that was no reason for her to pull out a stun gun to try to get him off her. When that didn’t work, she decided to take things up a notch.

She then pulled out a handgun and fired it at his crotch. The victim’s brother then freaked out and shouted “You shot my brother!” before apparently choking Dunn until she blacked out, according to Action News Jax.

Thankfully, the victim was okay. It seems Dunn only got one round into her husband’s testicles and his brother was able to rush him to a local hospital for treatment. The husband also took the gun and brought it to the hospital, whether to preserve evidence or to keep Dunn from doing anything else stupid is anyone’s guess.

Dunn was arrested the same day. Police booked Dunn into Columbia County Jail without incident, but she insisted to police that she hadn’t actually meant to shoot her husband, only scare him a bit. Maybe don’t use a loaded gun to do that next time?

WFLA reports. She was soon re-arrested for the offense.

California cops’ Memorial Day tribute busted by spelling police

Published

Just throw in the “e” for effort.

A well-meaning salute to heroes by the San Jose Police Department was cited for bad spelling on Twitter, where the cops botched an operative word.

“Remembering and Honoring Our Heros,” reads a graphic celebrating Memorial Day.

Missing from the SJPD’s spelling of the word “heros” is the letter e.

Several commenters, all of whom should expect to get a ticket if pulled over for speeding in the Silicon Valley area, noted that a heros is a type of fish found in South America.

Only 10 people who’ve gotten Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine have had severe allergic reactions – and more than 4 million doses have been given out

Published

The odds of having a severe allergic reaction after receiving Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine are looking incredibly slim.

On Friday the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its first comprehensive trove of data detailing how many people have had confirmed allergic reactions after getting Moderna’s new shot.

Among more than 4 million doses of the vaccine that were administered nationwide from December 21 to January 10, just 10 people reported confirmed cases of anaphylaxis after vaccination, which is a severe allergic reaction requiring administration of epinephrine. That rate of anaphylaxis cases is 2.5 per million.

An additional 43 vaccine-takers had less severe nonanaphylactic allergic reactions, with symptoms including itching (especially in the mouth and throat), rashes, and “sensations of throat closure.”

There have been no reports of death so far, and patients have generally recovered well after these allergic reactions, though five of the 10 severe cases had to be admitted to intensive care first. ( Pfizer’s new COVID-19 vaccine , too, has been very rarely associated with severe allergic reactions .)

All of the confirmed cases of anaphylaxis after administration of Moderna’s shot so far were in women, which isn’t a huge surprise when you consider that most of the non-elderly people who’ve been vaccinated so far are healthcare workers, an industry which is 76% female in the US.

In addition, according to CDC data, more than 2.4 million woman have gotten Moderna’s shot, compared with 1.4 million men (an additional 125,000-plus people who got Moderna shots didn’t record a sex.)

Most of the anaphylactic reactions happened within just minutes of vaccination. Only one of the ten cases took longer than 30 minutes to present, post-vaccination:

For these reasons, the CDC is recommending that all vaccine sites have doses of epinephrine on hand, and that people who get vaccinated should wait 30 minutes at the vaccine site before heading off, just in case something happens.

“It’s important that anybody who has had anaphylaxis talk to their vaccinator about that, and make sure that if they choose to be vaccinated, they wait the 30 minutes,” Dr. Thomas Clark, who’s been tracking allergic reactions after vaccination at the CDC, told reporters earlier this month .

Nine of the 10 patients who had severe, allergic reactions after Moderna’s shot had a history of allergies, and the most common allergies among them were to drugs (six patients). Just one patient with a severe reaction after vaccination had a food allergy.

“You know, many, many people with histories of allergies were vaccinated uneventfully,” Dr. Clark added.

People who do have an allergic reaction after their first shot of Moderna or Pfizer’s vaccine should not get their second dose, the CDC says.
