Urbina allegedly doused several men with gasoline and set them on fire and hacked another with a machete.
did he actually do that? i know he doused them with gasoline and brandished a machete, but i don't remember that he actually set anyone on fire or hacked someone with a machete?
A 14 year sentences seems pretty hefty for mere dousing and brandishing.
I would love to see some team reestablish the use of a fireman in the bullpen.
It would be a rare black mark for the Venezuelan justice system. It reminds me of the time Juan Uribe either shot a bunch of people and paid his way out of charges or didn't shoot a bunch of people and was extorted.
Venezuela isn't the Dominican Republic.
Those people are all the same, & you know it.
He was convicted of something, it shouldn't take that much legwork to find out exactly what the conviction was for and report that.
Months after his mother, Maura Josefina Villareal, was rescued by an elite Venezuelan anti-kidnapping unit in 2005, following a harrowing five-and-a-half month captivity, Urbina was involved in a violent episode on his sprawling Venezuelan property. Urbina allegedly doused several men with gasoline and set them on fire and hacked another with a machete.
Was there suspicion/speculation the two events were connected (such as Ugie believed the human kindling were part of the kidnapping)?
If no murderers/attempted murderers, who is the (subjectively) "worst"? Michael Vick? Any rapists? Kidnappers?
Ben Roethlisberger and Kobe Bryant had rape accusations (although Roethlisberger settled before it went to court) against them.
I'm a convicted disobeyer of traffic control devices
