DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Who Framed Seemona Sumasar?

July 29th, 2011 | 1 comment | Posted by Diana

The story of 36-year-old single mom Seemona Sumasar (detailed earlier this week by the NYT), pictured above, is a pretty sad one. A self-made Morgan Stanley analyst-turned-restaurateur, Sumasar had her life together when she met Jerry Ramrattan (pictured below), who, according to the Times, “said he was a police detective, but never seemed to go to work. He seemed obsessed with C.S.I., Law & Order and other television police dramas.” They started dating, and he ended up moving in. Over time she became suspicious about the fact that he lied constantly, and for the next year begged him to leave, though he refused.

In March of 2009, Ramrattan reportedly cornered her, taped her mouth, and raped her. After she pressed charges, he sent people to intimidate her. When she wouldn’t drop the charges, Ramrattan–free on bail–framed her.

F.B.I. – Yi Yi!

July 17th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

I have to say, when I read news today that a”hypermuscular” former FBI agent got busted for planning to murder people and attempting to rip off an Orange County drug courier–and was Vietnamese, my first thought was, “Wow, there was a Vietnamese FBI agent? Cool!” And my second thought was, “Oh man, he’s a totally crooked killer guy. Bad Vietnamese guy. Bad!” I know, I know.

But the disappointment only grew when I learned just how Vo Tran, the 40-year old that was fired by the FBI in 2003 for a number of offenses (including attempted bribery of a Vietnamese official) was harpooned.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

Vo Duong “Ben” Tran, 40, told a government informant secretly recording him that he had been a sports bookmaker and wanted to kill people across the country who owed him money, including a man from Redlands, Calif., who was in debt to him for more than $200,000.

“I want blood,” Tran said, according to the government transcript. “I have to make sure it has to be done right because all my hits, they are clean.”

Um, I’ve never actually ordered a successful hit, and I am certainly not a former FBI agent that once investigated organized crime, but in my opinion, jabbering on to your hitman is just sloppy. Shouldn’t such experience make a person BETTER at crime? I guess he didn’t study that hard. Just sayin’!!

I guess now, homey isn’t just former-FBI, he’s also FUBARed.

Gong Li Wears Fur, Activists Get Panties in a Wad

March 29th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

“During this month’s annual session of China’s parliament, Gong put forward a proposal to clean up the environment in her role as a delegate to the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).

But the state-run media has splashed photos of the star of “Memoirs of a Geisha” wearing a fur over her shoulders during the two-week meeting, resulting in angry cries for her removal from the political body…

In a poll run by the Beijing Youth Daily’s website…(a)bout 15 percent said that Gong was shameless to wear a fur while speaking out for environmental causes, while six percent said the actress ‘should be punished’.”

It’s somehow comforting to know that the PETA-crazies are the same wherever you go, kind of like a McDonald’s cheeseburger in Beijing or a Venti Latte in Tokyo. Score another one for Globalism!

God Save the King

Reports have been circulating the globe:

Oh, Jufer. It’s messy. It’s really messy. I have to side with Thailand on this one. Don’t fuck with King Bhumibol Adulyadej– I mean, just look at him, he seems like a nice dude. He appears to be the kind of man that makes corny jokes at dinner parties and if you visit his house, the first thing he does is offer you a chocolate covered macadamia nut that he picked up on his last visit to Honolulu.

I have but one thing to say in your defense: at least you were on time for last call at the bar that night. And during your 75-year stint in the clink, you will never be late for “outdoor time” or your daily pounding. I just hope they have cocoa for you in prison. Okay, those are the best my Swiss jokes get. You can see why I don’t write for the blog “Disgratzerland.”
