Despicable Butt Dialer

   Here he is.  This is 21 year old Floyd Rashid.  What a dirtbag.  And what a dumb dirtbag. 

   According to police, Rashid attacked his 20 year old girlfriend.  He threw her to the ground, put his hand over her mouth, and threatened to kill her.

   During the struggle, the phone in Rashid's pocket  dialed the woman's father.  The father heard his daughter screaming.  He also heard Rashid ask the woman if she wanted to die. He climbed into his car and sped to the couple's home.

   According to police the father found Rashid pinning his daughter to the ground.  He grabbed Rashid and threw him against the wall.  Rashid then fled.

   I have been thinking about this all day.  It makes me shake.  It just infuriates me.  As many of you know, I have two daughters that are 18 years old.  I think if I came across this situation, I might be writing my next blog from a jail cell.
