TAMPA, Fla. — A Florida man has been sentenced to six years and five months in prison for accidentally shooting a gun while taking a selfie in a strip club restroom.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Tampa announced 34-year-old Rorn Sorn’s sentencing Monday. The Asian Pride Gang member pleaded guilty in April to possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.
Court documents say Sorn was at Club Lust in St. Petersburg in December when his gun discharged. The bullet went through the mirror and into the adjacent women’s restroom. No injuries were reported.
A security guard approached Sorn as he was leaving, and Sorn reportedly told the guard that it was an accident and that he “was just trying to take a selfie.” Police responded, and officers found a handgun, ammunition and drugs on Sorn. Full Story »

A 73-year-old librarian became the latest victim of police in Punta Gorda, Florida. However, her tragic death — in front of 34 people, during an officer’s demonstration about police use of deadly force — is far from the, unfortunately common, tales of violence by law enforcement.
Mary Knowlton signed up to be a student in the citizen police academy hosted by the Punta Gorda Police Department, intended to show residents of the small town why and how officers do what they do.
After the group of 35 participants toured the police station and spoke with officers — a popular public relations tactic used by departments across the country amid the epidemic of police violence — Knowlton and another person decided to volunteer for a demonstration.
To illustrate how and when officers decide to use lethal force, the officer had the two students role-play a scenario putting citizens in cops’ shoes. Full Story »

This happened in a Cracker Barrel at 200 Hickman Circle in Sanford. Imagine you are sitting down eating typical white American food, engorging your already fat and diabetes-ridden gut with fried lard and sausage, when suddenly… GUN FIRE!
Our proud ‘Murican, William Hoback, accidentally fired his gun when it slipped out of the holster.Florida cracker fires his gun in a Cracker Barrel
The bullet found it’s way to a kettle, which shattered and injured several people including his fiancé and a store manager. The third victim had shrapnel in his leg and went to the hospital.
Hoback said he was sorry and explained it was an accident. Our good ol’ boys in blue decided that because of his white redneck privilege, an “oops I’m sorry” would suffice and therefore, charges were not pressed by the deputies.
This Cracker Barrel off I-4 near State Road 46 was closed down for several hours as these hicks investigated the cause for the shooting and filled their obese bellies with fried pork fritters and pork sausage gravy covered in bacon.
“This is ridiculous what they’re doing and this is a priority they should take away the guns,” said Ashok Soni, who is some angry businessman who sadly lives in the area surrounded by redneck Neanderthals.
Cuz ahm prowd 2 bee ahn amerryken! Muh freedomz! I mean seriously you can’t get any more Florida than this. Accidentally shooting people in a Cracker Barrel at HICKman circle? WTF Florida? This godforsaken state is truly its own satire.
