Ok THIS is a strange one.
Police say an “Ugly Betty” actor is now facing charges of murder and criminal possession of a weapon after he held his mother hostage and then murdered her with a samurai sword while screaming Bible passages Tuesday in Brooklyn.
WTF? Man that is a MESSED up story. I hope that drugs or mental illness are a factor here because that’s just too strange to wrap my mind around.
Of course you’ll note the weapons charges, see swords are heavily restricted in New York City…good thing too! No word if Mayor and Totalitarian Dictator Michael Bloomberg is going to take steps to ban bibles….

**Update** Thanks to falnfenix for providing more info on this story here. Appears to be a Masonic sword and Michael Brea was a Mason. Warning there are bloody crime-scene photos in the blog post. She has the first comment on the blog.
I really wonder if he’s got a brain tumor that simply hasn’t yet been diagnosed. It could explain both the headache and the violent behavior.
Those are my exact thoughts. This really reminds me of Charles Whitman.
