I wear hats. Not all the time but when it’s cold or rainy I wear a hat. Mine looks amazingly like the hat on the cartoon picture on my sidebar as a matter of fact. I love that hat. It’s heavy black leather and was an anniversary gift from my wife in 2007. I don’t think I could kill anyone over it though. I don’t know, just call me a prude but it’s just a darned hat and while I might be pretty pissed off if someone ruined it or lost it, it’s still just a damned hat. I guess that’s what makes me different from Deadreart Holmes because he liked his hat too. Enough to kill over it. I guess if it hadn’t been the hat it would have been something else though.
Sheriff’s deputies in Hillsborough County Florida arrested 18-year-old Deadreart Jamel Holmes on a charge of second-degree murder after he stabbed his brother to death in a fight over a lost hat. See, Deadreart let his brother Jason Phifer borrow his hat and the scoundrel lost it, leaving it in a friend’s car. Deadreart threatened to stab him and then made good on the threat by attacking him with a kitchen knife, stabbing him in the chest. Ahh, brotherly love at it’s finest.
Deadreart is currently being held at the Hillsborough County Jail with no bond. Judging from the jail records he was originally held on bail of an undisclosed amount but that was revoked earlier today.
