Also, a child in trouble for committing graffitti for drawing on sidewalk with chalk.
Twenty years later the cold case unit discovers who beat little Patricia Lopez to death. It was her own brother and his family defends him!
He died during a sexual bondage episode. Is this really a crime?
Finally, what's the latest on OJ?
Child’s Sidewalk Chalk Drawing a Crime?
This little story caught my eye because I have a precious granddaughter who loves to draw on the driveway, sidewalk and deck with chalk. We regularly have big hopscotch drawings in our driveway and all manner of nonsensical lines, circles and scribblings all about the place. Kaitlyn Mae’s magnificent chalk drawings even come in many colors.
First rain and boom, they’re gone.
A 6-year-old Park Slope girl is facing a $300 fine from the city for doing what city kids have been doing for decades: drawing a pretty picture with common sidewalk chalk.
Obviously not all of Natalie Shea’s 10th Street neighbors thought her blue chalk splotch was her best work — a neighbor called 311 to report the “graffiti,” and the Department of Sanitation quickly sent a standard letter to Natalie’s mom, Jen Pepperman.
Can somebody stop these bureaucrats before they Kafka again?
“PLEASE REMOVE THE GRAFFITI FROM YOUR PROPERTY,” the Sanitation Department warning letter read. “FAILURE TO COMPLY … MAY RESULT IN ENFORCEMENT ACTION AGAINST YOU.”
I sure hope the mean dopehead who phoned this in to the Brooklyn authorities is one happy fellow.
And let’s not forget the fine bureaucrats who just love to show their authority for the boredom and lack of creativity required by their silly little jobs.
What Will Be On His Gravestone?
LYNN, Mass - Adrian Exley was wrapped tightly in heavy plastic, then bound with duct tape. A leather hood was put over his head with a thin plastic straw inserted so that he could breathe, and he was shut up in a closet.
That, apparently, was the way Exley liked it. But the way it ended — with Exley suffocating — was not what he had in mind when he traveled from Britain for a bondage session with a man he had met through a sadomasochism Web site.
As it would turn out, the fellow who ran this fine and proud web site, one Gary LeBlanc, wrote a five page suicide note then killed his self.
Exley’s body was found in the woods fully two months after the bondage incident which killed him. It’s not clear how his body was found or why, when and how the manner of Exley’s death became known.
The more intriguing detail in this story is how the wrongful death suit filed by Exley’s estate will turn out. With both participants-Exley and LeBlanc-both dead, it’s not so much a criminal manner any more. The big question to be answered here in some fashion by this civil suit would be…if Exley was a willing participant in this bondage session gone wrong can LeBlanc, or his estate, be held responsible?
This is really an amazing article. It turns out that this LeBlanc fellow had quite the business going on. Several prior participants in LeBlanc’s torture games are going to testify that he often went too far and didn’t respond to whatever “safe” signal the participants had pre-arranged.
I had no idea there was a safe signal but it makes sense. This particular activity, at least in this case, was entirely a homosexual activity.
If they’re not having sex with strangers in public bathrooms used by our children, they’re engaging in all manner of sexual activity that is life threatening.
Definitely we should let these folks get married.
Breast Rubs and Teeth Pulled in One Session
There’s not much more provided at the link below as concerns this story.
Still, it’s a snort.
A dentist accused of fondling the breasts of 27 female patients is trying to keep his dental license by arguing that chest massages are an appropriate procedure in certain cases. Mark Anderson's lawyer says dental journals discuss the need to massage the pectoral muscles to treat a common jaw problem.
I’m thinking using breast rub as a legitimate action required by a conscientious dentist for a jaw disorder is as good a defense as any.
It would be a simple manner to blow that defense out of the water, at least as I see it.
Find out if there were any MEN treated in this same manner.
Piece of cake.
Cold Case Solved; Little Girl Beaten to Death by Her Brother
I’m thinking this little girl had skin under her fingernails or something equally incriminating.
She was beaten to death in 1987, twenty years ago. The cold case unit did some DNA investigating and lo and behold, guess who murdered the little girl?
Her own brother!
From the LA Times:
cold-case team discovers DNA evidence pointing to the man, now 42. His family appears in court with him and says he is innocent.
By Garrett Therolf, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
October 16, 2007
The badly beaten body of a 9-year-old girl was discovered in a storm drain by a group of children in 1987 only a short distance from the Santa Ana elementary school where she was last seen leaving her third-grade class.
What’s even weirder about this case, Rosendo Lopez’ mother is going to raise money for her son’s defense.
Patricia Lopez deserves to be alive today. She would likely be married, have children. She’d enjoy sunrises and planting rose bushes.
It takes quite a bit of violence to beat somebody to death. I understand that the Lopez matriarch is a bit overwhelmed but Patricia Lopez was her child as much as that child-beating son of hers.
I still question if this will result in a conviction. Since Rosendo is the victim’s brother there could be a reasonable doubt that it might be logical for his sister to have some of his DNA on her person.
I’m just saying…
Canada Considers Banning Knives
Actually sometimes people are killed with baseball bats, sometimes with hammers. If the crime involves the rape of a female the latest trend is to burn the body, at times even burning the woman alive by such fine raping men.
I say ban hammers, baseball bats, matches and lighters.
But then, in an odd display of non-sequiturship, he went on to state that the law should be amended to ban certain kinds of knives. "I invite you to go to a flea market over the weekend. You will be astonished to see that anyone can buy big knives, Rambo-style knives," he declared. "And it's mostly young people age 14, 15 or 16 who buy those knives. I can't believe that people can buy that here."
The notion that taking guns away from law-abiding citizens will somehow make the world safer went down the tubes around the time of the attacks on 9-11. In that case we had murder by airplane and at some point even the liberals get a clue for a time or two.
PEOPLE do the killing. Not weapons. Duh.
Is the Vicious Right Wing Responsible for the Recent Spate of Nooses?
A recent liberal Air America talk show host, Randi Rhodes, somehow managed to stumble and fall while walking her dog. She lost some teeth, or so the scuttlebutt goes. Actually, no one really knows the truth except that another liberal talk show host immediately accused some right wing nut job of mugging Rhodes because she had not been robbed.
Now we have a bunch of nooses showing up in odd places hither and yon and the flap is that the right wing nuts are once again doing their nasty stuff.
NEW YORK (CNN) -- New York police detectives are reviewing surveillance video from Columbia University in hopes of identifying the person or persons who hung a noose on a professor's office door earlier in the week.
The noose was found Tuesday, hanging from a door at Columbia's Teachers College.
"NYPD detectives began to download videotape images from security cameras on the campus ... after serving a subpoena on campus officials who declined to release the material without one," Deputy Commissioner Paul J. Browne said in a statement Thursday.
Okay, let’s roll up our sleeves and get out our common sense here.
First, the right-wing mugging of Rhodes has been put on the ash heap of liberal lies. No one’s sure what happened to Ms. Rhodes but there’s scuttlebutt she had been drinking or even that her own beloved did the damage to the woman. NO police report has been filed about the incident.
Second, all of a sudden a noose icon is some sort of symbol of racial hate icon? Goodness, nobody told me.
Sure I know that in a Jim Crow South, oh maybe 200 years ago, uppity Negro slaves were often hung by their slavemasters. Even after the Civil War free blacks were often accused of crimes and hung with no benefit of a trial or reasonable doubt.
But hey, black people aren’t the only human being ever hung. My point being that if some right wing nut job is busy putting nooses all about it could well be a waste of time because I’m not so sure anyone would get the connection.
Here’s the secret…right wingers, or “conservatives”, do not normally go all about breaking laws and engaging in hate crimes.
No they don’t.
Conservative types often have jobs and families. Conservative types comprise the vast majority of this country’s middle class and this country’s middle class is busy carrying this country on their backs whilst raising the soldiers and citizens of tomorrow. They just don’t have a lot of time to be putting nooses all over the place and mugging liberal talk show hosts, much as they deserve it.
Sort of like our stupid congress gets it into their pointy heads to go condemning Rush Limbaugh as anti-military, soon enough this stupid liberal pointing at conservatives as hate crime criminals will become laughable.
We’ll be keeping a tab on this sudden rash of noose incidents but I’ll bet one of my books free to the first ten visitors to this Blog for every incident that you’ll not find a conservative as the perp.
Good OJ News
I have a dream.
In my dream a smirk gets wiped off of Orenthal James Simpson’s face. In my dream those idiots on his jury are shamed and ridiculed by their colleagues and cohorts. Also in my dream, OJ goes to jail for as long as his most recent illegal escapade would allow.
LAS VEGAS (AP) - A second co-defendant in the O.J. Simpson armed robbery case said Monday that he will plead guilty to a reduced charge and testify against Simpson and four others in the alleged hotel room theft of sports collectibles from two memorabilia dealers.
I’ve said it before let me type it again…America is SICK of OJ Simpson.
Two people have died by his out-of-control hand. Nicole Simpson should be alive and enjoying her now adult children as they begin college, meet romantic friends, marry and have Nicole’s grandchildren. Ron Goldman would likely be wed by now, he might have a few children. Ron should be getting up on Christmas mornings, eager to see his children’s wonder struck eyes as they see their toys under the tree.
OJ got two free murders, God Bless him. Most of the time this country’s justice system hums along just fine but hey, OJ was a quirk. We collectively shrug our shoulders cause them’s the breaks.
OJ Simpson could have, go with me here, lived quite comfortably on his estimated $40K protected NFL pension a MONTH. He could have enjoyed his golf games, provided for his children for that monthly amount that most of us live on in a year. He could have been a good father to his and Nicole’s two children, maybe in some way make up for the mother he denied them.
But oh no. OJ has to continue being an asshole. He has to smirk upon our televisions, he has to write a nasty book pretending he did it, he has to over the years commit all manner of crimes.
The man has not ounce of class or humility.
THIS time folks, well I don’t think OJ’s going to get another chance. He sets up his own little “sting” operation against all laws.
I’m not surprised that one of his buddies is turning against him. For when a person tempts fate as stupid OJ has done for lo these many years…hey the world is out to get you bud.
Who knows, maybe it’ll probably sink in OJ’s thick head that the world definitely does NOT adore him as much as he loves himself.
It’ll be fun.
Pervert Stepfather Had Sex With Her Thus She Gets to Steal Babies From Mothers’ Wombs
Well that’s the case Lisa Montgomery’s defense is making.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The mother of a woman who cut a baby from the womb of an acquaintance she killed testified that she caught her then-husband having sex with her daughter in 1984.
Judy Shaughnessy, the mother of 39-year-old Lisa Montgomery, testified Friday she found then-husband Jack Kleiner having sex with Montgomery in 1984, when Montgomery would have been about 16. She testified as attorneys began building Montgomery's insanity defense.
Bobbi Jo Stinnet’s daughter will never know her mother. Lisa Montgomery knew what the hell she was doing when she strangled Stinnet then cut the baby from her womb.
Of course the woman needs a defense. This one will do I suppose.
She’ll still get the death penalty because this crime was entirely too heinous for any leeway.
Lisa Montgomery-Killed a Mother-to-Be and Stole Her Baby from Her Womb
She met her prey at a meeting for dog breed aficionados. Bobbie Jo Stinnet was 8 months pregnant. She was strangled and her baby was taken from her womb.
Because for sure this most unusual crime, replete with twists, turns, curves and bends involving dog shows, internet chat boards, strange cousins, dead dogs, and fake pregnancies, will be the true crime trial of the decade.
Because if Lisa Montgomery is not crazy then she certainly behaved as if she were.
This post begins the story of Bobbie Jo Stinnet and Lisa Montgomery.
Right after this crime which shook the nation, this Blog became a focal point of discussion about this amazing case. At some point Bobbie Jo's AND Lisa Montgomery's husband actually posted to this blog. This link to a post with many intriguing comments about this crime.
We continue on HERE following this case.
In Late September 2007 the Montgomery case goes to trial. Intriguing updates here.
