Hal Hamrick wanted to find a lady. So, the 48-year-old man did what ladies like. Hamrick walked around a Port St. Lucie shopping center exposing himself “multiple times,” according to an arrest affidavit. A witness told Port St. Lucie police he saw a man in a Miami Heat shirt and athletic shorts exposing himself. The man twice put his genitals out for view in front of Target, and once in front of Babies “R” Us. “Each time he attempted to use a trash receptacle as cover for the act,” an affidavit states. “Hamrick told police he was “exposing himself for the ladies.” “He wants to find a lady and they like when he does that,” an affidavit states. The guy’s got the angry masturbation face on lockdown in that mugshot.

ladiesScrew flowers, jewelry or cash. Hal Hamrick’s been on this Earth for 48 years and has learned what the ladies want. Cold hard dick. He figures they gotta at least see the goods before investing so why not cut out the middleman of dating and romance? Sure, he could have picked better spots to show off than Target and Babyies “R” Us, but true love knows no bounds One thing’s for damn sure, this guy’s got a permanent angry masturbation mug. I’m talking furious, spiteful, beating off feverishly when the woman isn’t home face. Best keep him away from the playgrounds.

Once Hal cheers up his defense should be that it just needed some air. Sometimes they need air, they can’t breath in there. It’s inhumane. People have been deemed innocent from a lot more for a lot less in the land of Florida.

Man sets home ablaze after niece refused booze run March 2, 2015

After being spurned by his niece for a ride to the liquor store, a Boynton Beach man decided he should burn something: his house, according to authorities.

fireOn Dec. 14, Clemons — who had already been drinking — asked his niece for a ride to the liquor store, according to a report from the agency. She told investigators she told him “No” and they got into an argument. To avoid further confrontation, the woman said she left the house.

Not long afterward, Clemons’ brother arrived at the house. He told investigators Clemons was standing out on the porch mumbling to himself about being “tired of it all,” according to the report.

His brother started making dinner and went out to see if Clemons was OK. Then, he saw a huge flame burning at the northeast corner of the house.
Clemons’ brother was able to extinguish the fire with a hose. Officials said the structural damage was minimal, but a garbage container and an all-terrain vehicle were slightly damaged.

Boynton Beach fire officials later found Clemons walking down the street with a large burn on his forearm.

Investigators determined Clemons poured gasoline against the wall outside and on the all-terrain vehicle and lit the fire while his brother was inside.

Clemons had left the hospital before Boynton Beach police were able to detain him.

He is charged with arson and is being held at the Palm Beach County Jail without bail.
