As I search out news stories that will interest you here on The Stir, there are times where I wish could take back what I see on the interwebs. You know Elder Porn and mothers smothering children or facing stoning death sentences. I wish I could just bleach my mind. Instead, I share it with you in hopes of finding meaning in a world of inexplicable acts.

Such is the case of Oklahoma City resident Arthur Sedille. Ugh. Where to begin...

Oh, yes, 23-year-old Mr. Sedille is facing possible murder charges in the death of his 50-year-old wife Rebecca Sedille who he shot point blank in the head. Those facts are not in contention.

Yet, he claims innocence. It was merely an accident he says. Yes, he put the gun to her head during sex, but he thought the gun was unloaded when he pulled the handgun's slide back.

I
Sexy??
t appears Mr. Sedille OFTEN put a gun to his wife's head during sex. Nope, not my idea of the healthiest of sexual relations -- if it's even true.

I'm sure all of us have a juicy fantasy that plays front row every once in a while in our marriages. Nothing wrong with that at all. Furry hand cuffs? Got 'em. Silken ribbons perfect for bed posts? Guilty. Riding crop?  {Blush} But a deadly weapon? No way. 

And if the Sedilles did engage in such a sexual practice, why on earth would REAL bullets ever be put in their fetish toy??! Wouldn't a realistic squirt gun have been a better option?

Sadly, it looks like authorities may believe his story. Apparently, his calling the police makes him seem more innocent?  CNN reports:


Never Point Guns At Those You Love

Investigators decided to arrest and jail Sedille on suspicion of first-degree murder out of an abundance of caution, said Oklahoma City police Master Sgt. Gary Knight. However, as of Tuesday afternoon, formal charges had not been filed in the investigation, which is ongoing, Knight said.

I'm going to go on record and say that if he pulls this off, I think we might expect a remarkable increase in women being banged to death by their mates.

The only thing that I can take away from this -- which is what my husband and I, as previous Army officers have ingrained in our kids since they were toddlers -- is, never point a gun at anyone or anything you don't intend to kill (especially someone you love).

Whether fantasy sex or play or protection, It's really that simple. Don't point at anything you don't mean to shoot. As for Mr. Sedille?  I'm not buying it.  Are you?
