Miranda Barbour: Two men escaped with lives:
Sister: Miranda is a liar:
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 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.
Man fatally shoots Craigslist seller-turned-robber, police say:
Man Charged With Murder In Craigslist Robbery Gone Wrong:
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.
Campbell Co. HS shooter wants chance to clear record:
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.
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.
Milwaukee police nab convicted sex offender in online sting operation:
Dale Lamont Williams
Police in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, have arrested Dale Lamont Williams for allegedly soliciting a 15-year-old boy for sex through craigslist. Police there say that Williams posted an ad on craigslist looking for sex with someone young. When the 15-year-old asked Williams if he was ok with the boy’s age Williams was said to respond with…
“As long as you can carry yourself like an adult when you get here and the vibe is right. I’m cool.”
Williams then instructed the boy on how to get to his residence by bus. It’s always by bus with some creepers.
If you’ve been reading this site for any length of time you should know by now that the 15-year-old boy was actually a detective who is part of Wisconsin’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. It turns out that Williams is a registered sex offender who was wanted in Illinois for failure to register. Wow, another sex offender who re-offended. What are the odds? And he used craigslist too. This story seems so unlikely. Ok, that’s enough sarcasm for now.
It really should come as no surprise that a registered sex offender used craigslist to find his next victim. They know that craigslist itself does nothing to prevent these type of ads from being posted.
Despite support, sex trade ad bill faces uphill battle:
Backpage attorney Liz McDougall
I originally posted about the SAVE act proposed by Illinois Senator Mark Kirk here. Backpage has responded to the latest threat through usual means with the typical response.
Let’s hear from Backpage’s legal weasel Liz McDougall…
“The aim of stopping the sex trafficking of minors, indeed the trafficking of any human being, is laudable,” Backpage.com attorney Liz McDougall wrote. “However, identifying and vilifying a single U.S. website (previously craigslist, now Backpage.com) as the cause of the problem and the key to the solution are ill-founded and unproductive.”
So according to Backpage it’s laudable to stop sex trafficking but more importantly it’s profitable so we’re not going to stop. Also vilifying Backpage is not unproductive considering they’re the online leaders of where women and children are trafficked. Unfortunately for right not the law is on Backpage’s side, a badly outdated law called the Communications Decency Act of 1996, but the law nonetheless.
Let’s be realistic here. Backpage makes their money through the purchasing of ads where these women and children are advertised as prostitutes. They’ll make grand gestures that they screen the ads but deep down I think they know where their money is coming from yet Backpage owners Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin continue to wallow in their prostitution profits while paying Liz McDougall to do tricks for the people.
Evansville man pleads guilty on charges related to death of Aprina Paul:
I originally posted about the death of Aprina Paul here. She died back in October of an alleged overdose after responding to the craigslist ad of 30-year-old Nathan Middleton who was offering weed for sex. Middleton claimed he panicked when he found her dead and burnt her body beyond recognition in his backyard fire pit since he was a felon on parole.
Recently Middleton of Evansville, Wisconsin, pleaded guilty to hiding a corpse and mutilating a corpse. He has not been charged with Aprina Paul’s murder because it seems that he was actually really thorough in the burning of her body…
Rock County Sheriff Bob Spoden said the guilty pleas did little to ease his frustrations with the case. Middleton burned Paul’s body so thoroughly and covered his tracks so well that sheriff’s detectives, the state crime lab and other agencies have not uncovered any evidence that would lead to more serious charges , he added.
“I believe that he was involved in her death, I believed he covered up the crime,” Spoden said. “We’re not giving up on this, but we’re realistic.”
Middleton is still looking at a max of 32 years behind bars and maybe a scientific miracle will occur and they’ll actually be able to pin her death on him but don’t hold your breath.
The more shady the transaction appears to be on craigslist the more likely it can be for harm to come to you.
Daytona woman charged with human sex trafficking:
Police in Daytona Beach, Florida, recently arrested 23-year-old Lashonda Riley for allegedly turning out a 17-year-old girl on Backpage. Hey Backpage, how are those safeguards working? Doesn’t seem to be working too well if you ask me.
Riley is also accused of beating the teen if she thought the girl was holding back any money. As I’ve said before female pimps should never be referred to as ‘Madams’ because there’s nothing ladylike about them.
Also once again here we have a case where the prostitute was neither consenting nor an adult. That myth should be long-buried by now.
‘Black Hitler’ charged with pimping women online: court papers:
Man who called himself ‘black Hitler’ now hit with pimping charges: court papers:
54-year-old Sherman Gamble of Manhattan was recently indicted for allegedly turning out five women on Backpage for prostitution. Backpage would probably tell you that the ads passed all their safeguards. The hobbyists, aka johns, would try to tell you that these are just consenting adults engaging safely in the world’s oldest profession. Except that Sherman has allegedly referred to himself as black Hitler and according to some testimony has lived up to that name.
Sherman has also been charged with attempted murder, kidnapping, assault and strangulation. Here’s what supposedly happened when one of the women worked for him tried to leave his ‘employ’.
“You’re a bitch and a slut. You need a … pimp and you need to be regulated,” he allegedly told a woman as he shoved a newspaper down her windpipe on March 3.
“I am going to kill you. You’re the type of bitch that should be hung upside down and skinned alive,” he later said, according to court papers.
“I am going to kill you,” bellowed the one-man Gestapo during the beatings, claimed the hooker, who originally told cops she was Gamble’s grandson’s nanny. “You don’t know who I am. I am the black Hitler!”
The victim eventually did escape to a local hospital.
So how’s that for consenting adults. This is the rule and not the exception when it comes to prostitution whether it’s on the street or on the slave trade website of Backpage. If you’re using Backpage to get hookers this is the type of man who your money is really going to. Backpage is also making blood money from these violent pimps so they can sell these women over and over again. But you don’t care do you? All you care about is getting your stick wet, who cares if the bitch is beaten right?
