Duh

>...we're not sure what's going to happen, if they're going to be able to reattach this

Erm, it's been through a garbage disposal unit, I doubt he'd want something looking like a lump of minced meat where his todger used to be.

So do you think you'll be able to re-attach it?

Confused

I can't work out who the ' sick' person is.

" "nothing more than the divorce proceeding" as a possible motive for the attack. The 51-year-old husband initiated the unhitching process back in May after 11-and-a-half years of marriage, the LA Times notes."

'nothing more' after 11 1/2 years may seem trivial to the cops but we don't know what led to the divorce - or at least not in what I've just read here. If he wanted to just go off and wave his knob around and taunted his missus with such things - 'I can't wait until the papers come through then all that pussy is mine' sort of thing, she might have got a tad upset.

That ain't sick, that's a pre-emptive strike.

I'm going to go out on a limb

And hypothesize that her temper was a factor in his desire for divorce.

'Aving a laff?

Are you a bit twp?

It's obvious who the sick person is here. It's the woman.

It's a big leap to jump to a conclusion that the husband was waving his todger around. As you yourself said, we don't know what lead to the divorce. And even if he was waving it around, that would certainly not justify the action taken.

Or do you seriously think "being upset" is a valid defence for such a grievous assault?

Temper?

If she had a "temper", I'd be expecting to be reading about a simple knife attack and penis hacking here.

What this was is cold, cruel, planned-out vindictiveness!

@Elmer Phud

Are you seriously suggesting that possible infidelity is a valid reason for castrating a man? How about a man cutting a woman's tits off for the same thing - do you feel the same way about that? Or are you just such a pathetic fucking mangina that you think all men are scum and all women are innocent victims like the feminists whose boots you lick?

@Elmer Phud

There is a difference between adding a bit of balance to a discussion, and completely inventing things we know nothing about at this point, and drawing conclusions from your imagination. Even if any of your imaginative scenario is right, there is still no excuse for mutilation merely because he might have "wave[d] his knob around".

I am really concerned about your concept of justified retribution - you might want to see someone professional about it (or learn how to use the <sarcasm> tag - whichever).

Throw the book at her

Lt Jeff Nightengale of the Garden Grove Police Department said police have "nothing more than the divorce proceeding" as a possible motive for the attack.

Is this surprising if he was married to a woman who is prepared to do this sort of damage to him with that degree of premeditation.

If she wanted "Revenge" she should have lawyered up and done it through the courts

Seriously any person who is prepared to disfigure a spouse or other human being to this degree regardless of genders involved needs to go away for a long time

Sadly, this is not surprising.

The family law system (and the law in general) is so completely fucked up that it encourages this sort of behaviour; women routinely receive “sentencing discounts” (far lighter sentences than a man would receive in the same situation) and all too often their violent acts are ignored. I became quite well aware of this 12 years ago, when my wife attacked me — for the third time, unprovoked — and strangled me with homicidal intent in front of our eldest daughter, then 3 years old. As with the first two times she launched unprovoked assaults on me, when the cops came they observed that one of us was in possession of a Y chromosome; that person was declared responsible and hauled off. As they said, verbatim: “We remove men from domestic violence incidents.”

Following that I have tried for a dozen years to get charges pressed, without so much as even getting a cop to write down the fact that I want charges pressed. In 2007: “Well, it was a long time ago, and besides, it’s only homicide,” sagely observed one cop. I still don’t know what that is supposed to mean.

umm, what?

women routinely receive “sentencing discounts” (far lighter sentences than a man would receive in the same situation).

This is a story about a woman cutting off a guy's todger and tossing it in the disposal... how EXACTLY would a guy be on the other side of that?!

Although i have no idea what "It's only homicide" means either. maybe the cop had a premenition of this story at the time?

Discrimination

@Oninoshiko: "how EXACTLY would a guy be on the other side of that?"

Simple: cut off her clitoris, or labia, or one or both breasts.

And this is why this is such a great example of sexism in our society - if her hubby had committed such an atrocity, there would be a mob in front of the jail with pitchforks, burning torches, Molotov Cocktails, and other instruments of destruction, demanding that he be hung, drawn, quartered, torn into little bitty pieces and buried alive, with no trial needed. The merest thought of possibly considering the option of perhaps suggesting he be given a fair trial would be grounds for exile from society, and a good tar-and-feathering and being ridden out of town on a rail on the thinker of such thoughtcrime.

However, let a woman perform such a thing on a man, and there is great twittering and laughter (one imagines the news commentators saying "<voice character="bevis">Heh-heh you said penis!</voice>")

Both acts are atrocities. Both acts should be vigorously pursued in the courts. If guilt is proven, both acts should result in the perpetrator being locked up for the rest of their lives. But since the alleged perp lacks a Y chromosome, and the alleged victim possesses one, she will receive undue leniency that would be denied a man.

Sadly similar circumstances

Had that sort of shit for almost seven years.

I was in a very similar situation. Had the police come round one night, after I had called them, and despite the fact she had a frikkin´kitchen knife in her hand when they arrived and was plainly pissed and I, on the other hand, was sober, the coppers told me it would be best if left the home (my home, not hers) as I was causing significant problems! This was about the 10th call in two years. All originating from me.

Fuckers.

Day after, having spent yet another night in hotel, I went to the local plod shop and demanded to see an officer in charge to vent my frustrations at the whole scenario. The cop in question, a female Inspector, took no notes and pretty much scorned everything I told her, despite the number of calls I had made that were logged at that station. She pretty much said that women "don´t commit domestic violence, without a reason". FFS!

You can´t make this shit up.

And yes, I did get away eventually. The heart does terrible things that the mind can´t understand.

Women are equally capable of doing nasty shit, just as men are.

What about his eligibility

for a Darwin award? Two questions arise: was it his fault, and can he reproduce..

At some level, it was his at least partially his fault - his wife was upset enough to plan and carry this out, and after 11 years of marriage he should have been aware of what she was capable of. Also, he ate the dinner she gave him even though he felt it tasted strange (from a BBC article).

Problem is, he still should be able to reproduce through sperm extraction, if not by orgasm.

So, IMHO, no award for him. Better luck next time, buddy...

WTF?

I don't know who to slap first...!

I'll just go with Hieronymous above, I think...

A Darwin Award, because surely it must be his fault somehow? He was asking for it? She was upset enough to plan and carry this out so he must've done something?

You effin' moron.

That's the same reasoning that rapists use when they say "She was dressed provocatively, m'lud! Asking for it!", or for those morons who think chucking acid in womens faces is acceptable in order to defend their honour!

You then suggest that she was upset enough to prepare for this vicious criminal assault. If she did plan it out (and we have no evidence that she did, I hasten to add) then it's WORSE, not BETTER. Thats pre-meditation, not a "crime of passion".

And then you go on to say (and this defies belief) "Problem is, he still should be able to reproduce through sperm extraction, if not by orgasm." Now, wait a second, lets assume he was unfaithful.. ..are you seriously suggesting that being sterilised/castrated is a fitting punishment for that?! Thats the thinking of a sociopath. Get help.

Now, @AC 12:15. You are just unbelieveable. I'll just facepalm at your inability to wield either reason or the English language and assume you are some sort of poorly educated bucket of slugs who thinks that the world owes her some respec' somehow whilst giving no respec' to anyone else 'cos you donhaffa,a'igh?* Off to daytime TV audience-land with you.

*use of language & spelling is intentionally ironic. You can find irony in a dictionary. You can find a dictionary (its a type of book) in a library.
