Kik, Facebook and Snapchat: Ohio man hits the creeper trifecta

Man arrested on sex charges involving girls:

Man Meets Girls on Social Media, Arrested on Sex-Related Charges:

Brian Scott Sibley

Brian Scott Sibley

Zippy the Pinhead’s even more brain addled cousin is 27-year-old Brian Scott Sibley of Vinton, Ohio. He was recently arrested by Scioto County Sheriffs for allegedly having sex (child rape) with an underage girl.

Police received a tip from the mother of a 15-year-old girl who said an older man was communicating with her daughter and her daughter’s 11-year-old friend through Facebook, Kik and Snapchat. Great, a creeper who employs redundancy measures. Further investigation revealed that not only did Sibley allegedly solicit explicit photos from the girls, which police say he received, but he also is said to have had sex with one of the girls. I want to say I hope it wasn’t with the 11-year-old girl but I don’t want the other girl to be the victim either.

Police posed as the girl and convinced Sibley they were going to have sex with him but instead was arrested at the arranged meeting place.

As I’ve said before parents, it’s not just your kids’ computers you have to monitor but their cell phones as well. Unfortunately you can’t watch over your kids shoulder while they’re using their cell phones away from home but you should be checking their phones for these apps and their attached friends list regularly.

Franklin Regional parent says ‘rat face’ caused school stabbing attack

Franklin Regional parent had bullying concerns before knife rampage:

Alex Hribal

Alex Hribal

Misleading headline is misleading.

Let me give you the rundown of the article. A man whose daughter was allegedly bullied at Franklin Regional says he went to the school about his daughter and he claims they did nothing about it. That;s the bullying concern.

However the same man says he has a screen shot, I’m assuming from Facebook, where some student referred to Alex Hribal as a ‘rat face’. As I’ve said before if this what is considered as bullying these days we are raising yet another generation of emotional marshmallows. Even if Hribal is one of these selfish and egotistical teens that usually carry out these kinds of attacks I doubt very much that ‘rat face’ would set him off to the point where he stabbed 20+ people.

Let’s also not forget that both the police and Hribal’s own attorney has said that bullying is not the cause of the attacks. The media won’t let that get in the way of writing salacious click bait.

Franklin Regional stabbing attacks not about bullying say police

Bullying not believed to be part of Pennsylvania high school stabbing rampage, police say:

Well what do you know, a news article that says bullying was not a motive in a violent school attack. Now some of you may dismiss this article because it’s from Fox News. Do you really think they’re making up this quote from Murrysville Police Chief Thomas Seefeld?

“I know the issue of bullying has been brought up but his attorney has even said … that bullying is not part of this and we have no evidence or reason to believe that it is.”

Police are also saying that Alex Hribal did not target anyone in his rampage at Franklin Regional Senior High School. Stabbing someone is a very personal and intimate act if those words can be used in this type of situation. If he didn’t have any specific targets in mind then this may be a legitimate case of mental illness. So far I haven’t read about any previous mental health issues on his part but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re not there.

I know it’s cold comfort for his victims but thankfully no one died in the attack.

Man killed in Allentown, Pa. after trying to sell car on craigslist

A 2003 BMW 745i

Authorities link Craigslist ad for BMW to Allentown man’s homicide:

Allentown man killed over apparent car deal:

41-year-old Eric S. Ervin owned a car detailing service in Allentown, Pennsylvania. He was trying to sell his 2003 BMW 745i on craigslist for a while. He was said to have met a potential buyer on Tuesday that saw his car on craigslist. Instead Ervin was found dead of a gunshot wound in a trailer at his business.

A man from New York was arrested in Reading, Pennsylvania, while driving a silver BMW with a handgun in the car. Police have not yet released this person’s name stating that the investigation is still ongoing.

Again while deaths of craigslist users is a very small minority of the people who use their site the number of people being killed is still pretty alarming. Has there been this many killings through Auto-Trader? I highly doubt it. For whatever reason craigslist is a magnet for criminals who want to prey on honest people. Don’t be a victim. Stop using craigslist.

UPDATE 4/10/2014: The man who was arrested is 27-year-old Tyrell R. Young of Reading and is in the process of being charged with Ervin’s murder. Prosecutors say that they will more than likely seek the death penalty.

20+ victims injured in Western Pennsylvania school knife attack

24 injured in knife attack at Franklin Regional High School:

Police identify suspect in Franklin Regional stabbings; 22 stabbed, 2 others hurt:

Alex Hribal's yearbook picture

Earlier today 16-year-old Alex Hribal allegedly went on a stabbing spree with two 8-inch kitchen knives in Franklin Regional Senior High School in Murrysville, Pennsylvania. Before it was all over 21 students and a security guard received injuries. Two of the students are in critical condition with one student receiving a stab wound that barely missed his heart.

No motive has been released so far but it didn’t take long for the bullying excuse to be trotted out.

Alex is “sort of nerdy, short,” the student said. “I would assume that he was bullied and there was a good amount of depression.” The student said he never saw the suspect being bullied.

If there was anymore jumping to conclusions in that quote the article could qualify for the olympics. If no one saw the kid being bullied just don’t assume it because he stabbed a bunch of people at school. But let’s not let speculation get in the way of any facts or anything.

Reports are emerging that Hribal is being charged as an adult.

This story reminds me a lot of the story of James Lewerke who in 2004 attacked several of his classmates at Valparaiso High School in Indiana with a machete and a tree saw. In that case injuries were minor and limited to five students. Lewereke was tried as an adult but was sentenced to be held until his 21st birthday. He is currently released.

In Lewerke’s case I do believe there were legitimate mental issues that caused him to go on his attack. If that is also the case in Hribal’s attack that remains to be seen. I’ll post more as details become available.

Thanks to Steve Huff for the tip.

Miranda Barbour says she let two go, her sister says she’s a lying sack of crap

Miranda Barbour: Two men escaped with lives:

Sister: Miranda is a liar:

Elytte and Miranda Barbour

Elytte and Miranda Barbour

The two stories are unrelated by the way.

In the first story accused Pennsylvania craigslist killer claims that she tried to set up two men before her and idiotically named husband settled for killing Troy LaFerrara. This may actually be true. From what I’ve researched about prostitution and human trafficking a lot of men back out at the last minute before going through with soliciting the services of a pro and Barbour was posing as a prostitute. Whether or not this has any actual bearing on the investigation remains to be seen.

Then on the second story Miranda Barbour’s sister seems to make the family opinion unanimous that Miranda is a lying sack of crap. She says that Miranda’s claim of killing close to two dozen men who ‘deserved it’ comes from the TV show Dexter. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the show the titular character is a police scientist who is also a serial killer vigilante. If this is the case Barbour wouldn’t be the first criminal to claim something in entertainment as her own.

CDC warns of new vaping risk: stupidity

vape

CDC warns of new risk related to e-cigarettes:

The anti-smoking advocates aren’t going to be happy until vaping (still hate that term) and e-cigarettes have the same stigmas as smoking. In my opinion the Centers for Disease Control is really reaching in their new findings. They now say that nicotine poisoning is on the rise due to people either accidentally ingesting or touching their nicotine laden e-juice.

“People do not appreciate the level of toxicity that is present in this e-liquid. This is concentrated nicotine,” said Dr. Tim McAfee, Centers for Disease Control Office on Smoking and Health.

Those people are what we like to call stupid. This is why they tell you not to smoke while using any nicotine replacement product like patches and the like. Of course some of those poisonings have happened to unsuspecting children.

All you have to do is touch the liquid nicotine to develop symptoms. Users “vape” the liquid and can switch out the containers of e-juice for different flavors, like cotton candy and bubble gum.

Kids under age six accounted for more half of the e-cigarette-related calls to poison centers.

Why is it always candy cotton and bubble gum that are mentioned as flavors. My local vape store has JD and Coke as a flavor. You never see the media mention that. Anyway, if you’re leaving your e-juice out where your kids can get at it you are a bad parent. I wonder how many children under the age of six they get from any other type of poisoning. I’d like see where e-juice ranks in a list of poisons reported to the CDC.

Use a little common sense people before they make it where we’ll have to go back to smoking.

Suspect killed during craigslist robbery

Man fatally shoots Craigslist seller-turned-robber, police say:

Man Charged With Murder In Craigslist Robbery Gone Wrong:

Duwayne Lewis

Duwayne Lewis

Police in Coral Springs, Florida, say that 26-year-old Jason Mageau and 18-year-old Duwayne Lewis allegedly tried robbing a man after they posted a craigslist ad promising a good deal on a cell phone. After the victim showed up to make the deal Mageau allegedly produced a gun and pistol whipped the victim. The victim went back to his car where he got his gun and shot Mageau in the chest. Mageau later died at the hospital.

Have you ever heard the expression ‘never bring a knife to a gun fight’? I guess you can also say never bring a starter’s pistol to a gun fight because that’s what Mageau’s gun was. The victim on the other hand had a real gun with real bullets.

Lewis is said to have tried to tell police that he and Mageau were victims of the robbery but police say that the evidence provided by the victim shows otherwise. Lewis has been charged with murder in Mageau’s death as Florida law states a person who assists in a crime that leads to a death may be charged in that death.

So no matter what side of the craigslist robbery you’re on just by using craigslist you’re taking your life in your hands. Even the criminals are safer not using it.

Kenny Bartley wants his record cleared

Campbell Co. HS shooter wants chance to clear record:

Kenny Bartley in 2005

Kenny Bartley in 2005

I guess it just wasn’t enough for Kenny Bartley to be found not guilty in his retrial for Ken Bruce’s murder. Now he wants his record cleared entirely. Bartley shot and killed Principal Ken Bruce in Campbell County High In Kentucky back in 2005. He entered into a plea deal which saw him sentenced as an adult to 45 years. That plea was eventually thrown out and a new trial was ordered where Bartley was found not guilty this year.

You know what? Let’s just go ahead and clear Bartley’s record. I mean why should he be held responsible for anything? Let’s just go ahead and make Ken Bruce’s death even more pointless.

You can’t unring the bell though Kenny. As long as there is media and this website everyone will know what you have done and it will follow you for the rest of your life.

The hearing is scheduled for this coming Monday.

Review of Ronnie James Dio This Is Your Life

RonnieJamesDio_ThisIsYourLife

I had such high hopes for this album. I should have known that it wouldn’t be able to live up to the hype.

For those of you who don’t know ‘Ronnie James Dio This Is Your Life’ is a tribute album to the late Ronnie James Dio. With sneak previews of songs by Corey Taylor and Halestorm that were amazing I thought this album was going to be amazing, Metallica being on it notwithstanding. I guess I should have checked the track list before I got this album because I already have three songs on this album from other albums one of which is from a previous Dio tribute album. I also felt that there were some performances on the album that just felt mailed in. However I was happy to see some songs from the 1990 Black Sabbath album ‘Dehumanizer’ on there.

3 1/2 fedoras out of 5. Buy it anyway because proceeds do go to the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund.

You’re still missed Ronnie. \m/

Here’s one of my favorites from the album, Jasta doing Buried Alive from the aforementioned Dehumanizer album.
