LIVING UP TO HIS NAME

Jethro Monestime. You know he's destined to do something stupid.

Monestime used to work as a luggage handler at a Broward County airport. Used to, until he messed around with the airport's speaker system. WESH reports:
Monestime said he used his cell phone to play a recording (over the speakers) that said, quote: "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, they should be put to death." The announcement came from a variation of Leviticus 20:13.

Broward County Mayor Josephus Eggelletion Junior said the sheriff's office will turn the case over to the state attorney's office to determine whether criminal charges should be filed.
Not coincidentally, a gay couple were within earshot of Monestime's "prank." Goodbye, Jethro, and good riddance.

A good Jethro is hard to find.

A man named Jethro don't need to be justified.
