Anna Benson was wearing a bulletproof vest because she’s starting a bulletproof vest company. Oh.

The New York Post called Anna Benson in jail. She took the call. And then she explained why she broke into her estranged husband’s house while armed and wearing a bulletproof vest: Kris Benson was “f***ing my friends, in my house,” she claimed. And she’s starting a bulletproof vest company and had to field-mold a new model to her body. She added that she’s “all about love.”

Well, that clears that up.

And more details have emerged from the incident:

Anna Benson, dressed all in black, had a black Taurus Judge revolver, expandable baton and red folding Batman knife with her, police said. Also recovered was a hatchet, a Taser, 13 bullets, a bag of syringes and eight pills, police said.Anna demanded $30,000 while repeatedly screaming, “P—y!’’ at Kris, cops said.

She beat her chest with the baton like an ape, smashed her husband’s computer terminal and pulled the gun out of her purse, said Kris Benson, 38, who was traded by the Mets in 2005 and has since retired.

When the cops showed up she was on the back deck, smoking a cigarette and then told the cops that Kris Benson was a “p***y.”

This is one instance where less criminal justice and more mental health assistance is probably needed. And if she has a lawyer, he or she needs to tell her to stop taking calls from tabloids.

    I was biking around the nether regions of my city on July 4 when I accidentally came across the area’s mental hospital. It was tucked away at the end of an obscure, out of he way street, in a not-unpleasant location on the waterfront. I had no idea it was there.

    Piqued by curiosity, I checked Google for more information about it. There were about a dozen user comments. Every single one said how horrible the place was. Some of the commenters were clearly crazy, but some were reasonable sounding, articulating the facility’s shortcomings: poor sanitary conditions; rude, severely over-worked and under-staffed employees; over-reliance on medication, etc.

    Checking the hospital’s web site, it promotes itself as a “behavioral health facility,” focusing on helping ordinary people deal with ADD or anxiety or helping them quit smoking. But make no mistake, this was the place where “they come to send you away.”

    And I couldn’t help thinking, wouldn’t more “ordinary” people be inclined to take care of their mental health, the benign problems like anxiety or mild depression, if not for the prospect of being lumped together, both in perception, by a culture that looks down on those who acknowledge that they’re less than perfect, and in reality, by being forced to share poorly funded, nightmarish facilities, with the severely mentally ill?

    I wonder what kind of pills she had. If she had a syringe I’m thinking maybe oxy

    They’re both totally nuts. Kris is as much of a scum bag as she is crazy. And, apparently, he’s also a p***y, too.

      Anna was little more than a broke single mother and glorifed w***e when Benson met her in some strip club and subsequently provided the avenue for her to ultimately evolve into something of a trashy celebrity. The simple reality is that Kris owes her much less than most men owe their wives once a relationship has run its course. Also, while I’m certainly willing to believe he’s less than an angel all things considered, it’s safe to say that Anna is MUCH more of a genuine nutball any day of the week than he is a scumbag.

    Wow! This is insane yet awesome all at the same time! All she needs is a rabbit in a pot or a “what’s in the box”

    Crazy women are always the most exciting ones.

    Usually, the hotter you are, the crazier you are.

      Wow, talk about shallow generalizing. Get lost, clown, and expand your twisted, teenage-like view of women.
