Crazy People Are Dangerous

Posted on | February 9, 2017 | 1 Comment

In 1978, a Pennsylvania court granted Thomas Wyda a name change to Tammy Lynn Wyda. Wyda castrated himself and subsequently underwent sex-change surgery. Wyda was married twice, and in 2002 went to prison after his/”her” husband died from a botched castration:

She was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and related counts in December 2001 in the death of her husband, James Felbaum, 40, and was sentenced to 5-1/2 to 11 years in prison. She cut off her husband’s testicles in a makeshift surgical laboratory in the couple’s filthy, unheated mobile home in Marion Township, Butler County, according to trial testimony. . . .
She was sentenced in April 2008 to 21 to 60 months in jail followed by two years of probation on terroristic threats and aggravated harassment by a prisoner while she was incarcerated in her husband’s death. She pleaded guilty to writing threatening letters to a Butler County assistant district attorney, two judges and others in October 2006.

After being released from prison in 2012, the “Mrs. Felbaum” claimed to be innocent in an interview with TV reporter Rick Earle:

“I loved him. I still do,” said Felbaum.
“Did you have anything to do with his death?” asked Earle.
“No, I did not have anything to do with his death. My husband died from complications of a drug overdose, not complications of any surgery. I did not kill my husband. My husband was not laying there bleeding. You know it’s not something you die from. It’s a minor surgery.
Felbaum said her husband began the surgery because he didn’t want testosterone. When he ran into problems, she stepped in. Felbaum said she had performed the surgery once before on her first husband.
Felbaum claimed James was fine after the operation. She told Earle he overdosed on oxycotin.

So, “Mrs. Felbaum” has castrated at least three men, including himself/“herself,” and both of his/“her” husbands. This week, the castration-crazy transgender widow was arrested again:

A transgender woman who spent time behind bars for a botched castration that led to the death of her sixth husband was arrested this week after she allegedly threatened to shoot a Westmoreland County, Pa., judge, according to news reports and police.
Tammy L. Felbaum, 58, of Seward, in southwestern Pennsylvania, entered the Westmoreland County Courthouse on Monday morning, placed her purse on the baggage X-ray equipment, then made comments that “she had guns and an Uzi and a rocket launcher in her purse,” County Park Police Chief Kirk Nolan said Wednesday.
As she walked through the scanner, she told another officer, “I came here to shoot a judge,” Nolan said.
He said officers searched her purse and did not find any weapons. Felbaum told police she was only kidding about her threats, Nolan said. He said she did not name a specific judge.
Felbaum nonetheless was charged with terroristic threats and disorderly conduct. She was being held Wednesday at the Westmoreland County Prison on $100,000 bail.

Given his/“her” record, Tammy Felbaum shouldn’t be threatening judges. He/“she” should be running the Democratic National Committee. He/“she” can’t possibly do worse than Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
