Convicted murderer trolling for teens on MySpace

AG: Murderer Trolling MySpace for Teen Girls:

52-year-old Robert Nathaniel-Roosevelt Reeves II of Detroit, Michigan was arrested yesterday for trying to meet with a 14-year-old girl on MySpace. As you can guess the 14-year-old girl was actually an undercover Michigan Attorney General Special Agent.

Reeves sexual advances to the undercover agent became increasingly more aggressive and quickly led to Reeves soliciting and arranging a meeting with the undercover agent posing as the 14-year-old girl in a Novi parking lot. Reeves was immediately arrested when he appeared for the rendezvous by Attorney General Special Agents in Novi on Sunday, April 29, 2007.

Reeves is looking at two separate felony charges that both carry a 20 year sentence.

Reeves previously spent 1974-1987 in prison on a 2nd degree murder conviction.

How not to be a loser

How Not to be A Cho Seung Hui:

Normally I don’t like to link to political sites on this blog from either side of the aisle. However I just couldn’t pass up this commentary from Doug Giles at Townhall.com about how you can avoid being the next Cho Sueng-Hui. I’ll just give you a little taste.

The video left by Cho affords great insight into this sick gnat’s psyche, which provides us with a good blueprint on how not to become twisted and pathetic. Three principle evils repeatedly showed up in this petty ninja turtles video montage.

It’s worth your time to read the entire article.

Appeal to be filed on sealing of depositions

Columbine parents launch appeal of decision to seal depositions:

As expected some of the parents of Columbine victims have filed a formal notice that they will appeal Judge Lewis Babcock’s decision to have the depositions of the parents of the Columbine killers sealed for 20 years.

Attorney Barry K. Arrington filed the notice of appeal in U.S. District Court on behalf of parents Brian Rohrbough, Susan Petrone and Dawn Anna. The notice does not discuss the grounds for appeal and Arrington did not immediately return a call.

Rohrbough and Petrone are the parents of Daniel Rohrbough and Dawn Anna is the mother of Lauren Townsend. Their children were among 12 students who were killed at Columbine on April 20, 1999.

Judge Babcock’s reasoning for sealing the depositions was to prevent copycats of Columbine. Obviously that didn’t work.

Accused cop killer’s lawyer steps down

Montgomery Appointed New Attorney:

The public defender assigned to alleged cop killer Demetrius Montgomery has stepped down citing conflict of interest…

Jean Lawson, an attorney from the Mecklenburg County Public Defenders Office, was assigned to the case just days after Montgomery was charged.

Jail records show Lawson spoke with her client at the Mecklenburg County jail several times, and even had a conversation that lasted more than an hour. But Lawson’s request to withdraw cites two North Carolina state rules about lawyer conduct, including one that says a lawyer should not represent a client if that representation will hurt another client.

I wonder if her client’s testimony would hurt Montgomery or the other way around.

Cho’s ticket to the bughouse

Cho Seung-Hui’s Commitment Papers:

For those of you who are into every minute detail no matter how insignificant it may be, Slate now has the commitment papers of Cho Seung-Hui.

I didn’t find the papers themselves very interesting but rather what was in the article that accompanied it.

The patient exercised his right to counsel by court-appointed attorney Terry W. Teel (see Page 2), and his case was considered and decided by Special Justice and Guardian Ad Litem Paul M. Barnett. Justice Barnett found that although Cho presented “an imminent danger to himself as a result of mental illness,” there were suitable “alternatives to involuntary hospitalization” available. Cho was ordered instead to get outpatient treatments (see Page 5). No record has been found to confirm whether Cho, who killed 32 people and himself on April 16, ever sought or received the court-ordered treatment.

Just a few quick questions here. If Cho presented an imminent danger to himself why was he not committed. Doesn’t imminent mean inevitable and immediate? Since the court ordered him to attend outpatient treatments was the court supposed to follow up to make sure he was attending? Isn’t that what court ordered means?

Cho not a victim

Seung-Hui is not a victim:

This is an editorial from the Tuft’s University student paper in response to this editorial that claims that Virginia Tech mass murderer Cho Seung-Hui was a “victim”.

The truth is society is not perfect and it never will be. Who among us has not felt isolated from his or her peers at some point in life? Yet we do not respond with violent rage. This is not how a human being is supposed to act. The individual decision to murder cannot be excused as a result from reality not always being a happy, jolly place. What happened at Virginia Tech was an act of monstrous insanity.

The only person who can be blamed for Cho Seung-Hui’s violent outburst is Seung-Hui. This is a time to remember the lives of 32 people whose lives were taken away far too soon. The 33rd “victim,” which is what Gunturi refers to Seung-Hui as, should be remembered as the one who took the others’ lives.

Finally, she argues, “Let us not allow Cho’s death to be in vain.” But very idea that we can take anything positive from this man’s life on Earth is ludicrous. He was a horrible person and the world is a better place without him.

Amen brother. It’s just such a waste that the loser had to take 32 innocent victims with him.

Cho and the escort

‘He was Creeping me Out’:

How’s this for pathetic? According to the article Cho Seung-Hui couldn’t even get laid by a hooker…

Chastity Frye says she spent an hour, all alone, with Virginia Tech killer Cho Seung-Hui last month.

Frye said “He was so quiet, I really couldn’t get much from him, he was so distant, he really didn’t talk a lot. It seemed like he wasn’t all there.”

Frye works for an escort service. She says, Cho hired her, and the two met at a Valley View motel.

She says “I danced for a little while and I thought we were done because he got up and went to the restroom and began washing. And I said, ‘well, do you want me to go? I’m going to go ahead and go’. And he’s like, ‘I paid for the full hour, you’ve only been here for 15 minutes,’ and then he came back in the room. And I started dancing and that’s when he you know, touched me and tried to get on me and that’s when I pushed him away.”

When Chastity Frye saw the news about Cho last week, she thought she recognized him. Then, she says, FBI agents questioned her this weekend. Frye says they tracked her down through Cho’s credit card receipt.

Frye said “I don’t know what to think. I’m just very grateful that nothing happened then. Sometimes I wonder if I could have said something or done something differently or maybe talk to him a little bit more [but] you know, get him to open up? Right. But I wasn’t thinking about that at the time. I was thinking, he was creeping me out, I was thinking about getting out of there.”

My dad had a saying for guys like Cho. He would say “That guy couldn’t get laid in a whore house with a stack of twenties.” And here I thought that was just an expression.

Thanks to BelchSpeak for the link.

Cho’s stone stolen

Cho’s stone gone from memorial:

An almost 5lb granite rock that bared the name of the Virginia Tech killer was removed from the makeshift memorial that contained 33 blocks that had the names of all who died at Virginia Tech. It disappeared before classes resumed on Monday.

Hopefully some drunk college students are doing unspeakable things to it. If they are I’d like to buy them a beer.

Hainstock to be tried as adult

Judge: Hainstock To Be Tried As Adult:

Judge Patrick Taggart has ruled that Eric Hainstock, the teen accused of gunning down Weston Schools principal John Klang, will be tried as an adult.

Judge Patrick Taggart said that Hainstock’s attorneys didn’t prove that moving his murder trial to juvenile court wouldn’t diminish the seriousness of his crime.

Taggart said that evidence showed Hainstock planned to go to Weston Schools with guns and told a janitor that he was there to kill someone.

The judge told the defense lawyers that they only succeeded in meeting one of the three criteria to move the case to juvenile court, WISC-TV reported.

Of course the defense is not happy.

Hainstock’s attorney Rhoda Ricciardi said that the teen will rot away in prison. She said that therapy he would have received at juvenile facility could have helped him.

What’s your point lady?

Hainstock is now looking at life behind bars.

Yeah…that’s the ticket

liar

Those who knew gunman return to classes:

Not only was Cho Seung-Hui an anti-social, selfish, cowardly, loser he was also delusional, or a pathological liar.

Koch remembers taking Cho out to some parties at the start of the fall semester in 2005. He introduced Cho to friends, but the sullen roommate didn’t say much. At one party, Cho did get tipsy enough that he opened up and began talking about his virtual love life.

He said he had an imaginary girlfriend named Jelly, and that she was “a supermodel that lived in space.” Jelly had a nickname for Cho — Spanky.

Once, Koch knocked on Cho’s door looking for his roommate, John. The door was locked, and Seung wouldn’t open it up.

“I’m in here with my girlfriend and we’re making out,” he said.

“Who says that kind of stuff?” the junior from Richmond asked.

A couple months later during Thanksgiving break, Koch’s phone rang. It was Cho.

“I didn’t know why he called, and I was like ‘What’s up.’ He goes, ‘I’m vacationing with Vladimir Putin. I was like, ‘Really? I think he lives in Russia.’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, we’re in North Carolina.’ I’m like, ‘I’m pretty sure that’s not possible Seung.”‘

I think we all know a guy like this. Someone who tries to hard and ends up pushing people further away from him.

Cho didn’t hate the so-called rich kids. He wanted to be one so bad it hurt. And when they didn’t accept him his stalker mentality kicked in. If they won’t be friends with me they won’t be friends with anyone.

Not everyone has to accept you as a friend. That’s the way the real world works.

As always it was your pleasure.
