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?
Statutory rape conviction gets man 50 years in prison:
Steven Lee Odom
Don’t worry folks. The crime took place in 2009. No one uses MySpace anymore.
Anyway, 26-year-old Steven Lee Odom was sentenced in a Rowan County, North Carolina, court recently to a minimum of 50 years for the statutory rape of a 13-year-old girl when Odom was 21. Creepily, Odom lived across the street from the girl and would watch her get off the school bus. He then began messaging the girl through MySpace and Facebook. That led to Odom having sex (child rape) with the girl.
So why such a long sentence? At the time of the crime Odom was already a registered sex offender. Odom had pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent liberties with a child in neighboring Stanly County. He only received probation for those charges.
A re-offending sex offender? I’m shocked and amazed since they usually tend to be such trustworthy people said no one ever.
Oh well, see you in 2064 if you’re lucky.
Three Charged With Murder Of Man Trying To Sell Car On Craigslist:
Third suspect charged in murder of man trying to sell car:
The list of craigslist killers keeps growing at an alarming rate. This time three more names have been added to that list.
In Memphis, Tennessee, 37-year-old Larry Wilkins was trying to sell his 2006 Mustang on craigslist. Police say he met up with some potential buyers shortly before Midnight on March 9th. Instead of selling his car Wilkins was shot and killed and his car stolen. Those charged in his murder are Brandon Vance, 21, Martiness Henderson, 17, and Walter Collins, 17.
One day when the website is exactly the way I want it I’ll have list of all the craigslist killers and victims but if I had to take a guess I’d say we’re in the dozens of killers by now.
Police: Md. mall shooter fascinated by Columbine:
Mall Shooter Modeled Shooting After Columbine:
I don’t blog about every mass shooting in the U.S. Sadly in our society today if I did that I’d have little time for anything else. So please forgive me for not previously blogging about The Mall In Columbia shooting back in January when it happened in Maryland.
In January 19-year-old Darion Aguilar stormed the mall armed with a shotgun. He shot and killed 21-year-old Brianna Benlolo and 25-year-old Tyler Johnson who were employees of the store Aguilar first entered. Then Aguilar turned the gun on himself and took the coward’s way out. Aguilar had no connection to his victims.
Recently it was made public by investigators that Aguilar had a ‘fascination’ with Columbine, obsession would be a better word. Police say that he had the prerequisite Tumblr account with pictured of mass shootings and that he had downloaded a video game based on Columbine. Gee, I wonder what game that could have been. Police also add that prior to the shooting Aguilar took a selfie where he was dressed like one of the Columbine cowards and posted it to Tumblr right before the shootings took place. They also say that Aguilar waited so that the time of his shooting coincided with the same time that the Columbine shooting started. I think it’s safe to say that this coward was just another mutant. Mutant is the term I use for people who emulate, worship, or have sympathies for school shooters, specifically the Columbine cowards Harris and Klebold.
In his private journals Aguilar talked about being mentally ill and hearing non-violent voices. He went to a doctor who referred him to a psychiatrist but Aguilar never saw one. Apparently he was not comfortable talking to his mom about it. So rather than being a man and going to get help on your own or being man enough to talk to your mom about it you just go ahead and kill two random strangers in tribute to your cowardly heroes.
There’s no shame in seeking help but there’s plenty in cowardly violence.
