Hannah Star Esser is accused of showing “a complete disregard for human life” in the death of Luis Anthony Victor, 43, after she believed he was “trying to run over a cat in the street,” according to Law & Crime.

Police found the man dead in the street, from apparent injuries suffered when Esser’s car allegedly struck him. Esser recorded herself confronting Victor around 8:3o p.m.—in what police call a “profanity-laced” rant. She accused him of threatening the feline, according to the video sequestered from her phone.

On the lost arts of Paul Fletcher, minister for killing off creativity, culture and cred

  On the lost arts of Paul Fletcher, minister for killing off creativity, culture and cred The Coalition’s man did his best to starve artists in all fields — music, literature, drama — and now criticises Labor? Not so fast, say Crikey readers.Hayley Ricketson writes: There’s something ironic about how unpoetic, uninspired and unimaginative former arts minister Paul Fletcher’s criticism of the Labor government and its “lacklustre arts funding” is. If he ever thought his argument was going to hold water, he’s at best a fool, at worst someone very unfamiliar with how water vessels work.

The two argued for some time before Esser got into her vehicle, made a three-point-turn and then barrelled towards the man, filming the entire incident, according to the Orange County District attorney. “This action showed a complete disregard for human life,” said Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer. “The Orange County District Attorney’s Office will ensure that this random act of violence targeting a stranger will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

A press release issued after Esser’s arrest went on to describe how the young woman acted with alleged premeditation. “Instead of continuing to drive away from Victor and out of the area, Esser made a 3-point turn and drove back towards Victor in the direction of a cul-de-sac,” the release said. “Esser then made a U-turn, accelerated and drove directly at Victor.”

Police say she hit Victor with the right front bumper of her car with such speed that it hurled him onto her hood and windshield. He then flipped several times over her car and died upon impact with the street.

Esser will be arraigned on Oct. 13 and is in custody on $1 million bond. There has been no report on the condition of the cat at the center of the argument.

Shot Woman Says ‘Serial Killer’ Could Have Been Stopped .
OAKLAND, California—The suspected serial killer first struck on a residential street in East Oakland. But his lone surviving victim insists the unidentified suspect, who is still at large, could have been stopped earlier if cops had only listened to her. The first to die was Juan Miguel Vasquez Serrano, 39, who was homeless at the time of his murder. He had been living on the streets of the working-class Seminary district for about eight months, according to local resident John Smith, who told The Daily Beast that Serrano was known in the neighborhood for his skill fixing cars. Smith and his wife, Sherie, were awoken by gunshots shortly after 4 a.m.
