Here’s a form of violence you don’t often read about:

A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy was arrested Monday on suspicion of attempted murder after he allegedly beat, stabbed and may have tried to castrate a young man whom he suspected of having an affair with his wife, according to a law enforcement source and a relative of the victim.

Paging Lorena Bobbitt. I’m not making any intimations about the deputy, but that word—castrate—reminds me of one of the many great scenes from “The Big Lebowski.”

Donny: “They were Nazis, Dude?”

Walter Sobchak: “Come on, Donny, they were threatening castration! Are we gonna split hairs here? Am I wrong?”
