White terrorist charged with murder for shooting two unarmed, deaf Iraqi boys

Took nearly 7 years to charge him...

The leader of a U.S. Army small-kill team has been charged with two counts of murder for allegedly killing two deaf, unarmed Iraqi boys in a small Iraqi village in March of 2007.

Former Staff Sergeant Michael Barbera has been charged by military prosecutors in the fatal shootings of  Ahmad Khalid al-Timmimi, 15, and his brother Abbas, 14, as the boys were tending cattle in a palm grove just outside As Sadah, about 50 miles northeast of Baghdad.

Additionally, the 31-year-old Barbera 'lying to his commanders, directing fellow soldiers to lie to military investigators and making a threatening phone call to a civilian in an effort to keep what happened from becoming public,' according to a report from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

Barbera led Charlie Troop, 5th Squadron of the 73rd Airborne Reconnaissance Regiment out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina. At the time of the alleged murders, the squadron was involved in counterinsurgency operations in the Diyala province.

That's when military officials say Barbera fatally shot the two boys before lying to his superiors about how they died.

'None of us feel good about this. But I'm glad that the Army is doing the right thing,' Ken Katter, 46, of Saginaw, Mich., the sniper assigned to Barbera's team, told the paper.

Katter is one of several soldiers who brought the killings to the attention of Army officials. Katter firmly believes that the shootings led to two truck bomb attacks two weeks later that killed 10 soldiers.

According to the Trib, investigators who reviewed the case recommended that Barbera be charged with two counts of murder. However, those charges never made it to an Article 32 hearing.

Instead, the paper reports, Barbera received a light reprimand and ultimately promoted. 

However, whistle-blowers like Katter and others spoke up against their former superior officer.

'All we ever asked was for someone to listen to us and give what we were concerned about — a fair hearing,' Katter said.

Barbera was charged on Wednesday at Alaska's Fort Richardson with two counts of murder. He currently is in the process of being moved to Joint Base Lewis-McChord near Tacoma, Washington, where he will undergo a formal arraignment.


What Fox News Doesn’t Understand About Santa Claus

Note to white people, Jesus was not a white man, and Santa was based on the Turkish St.Nicholas.


“This would be funny if it were not so telling about our society, in particular the knee-jerk instinct by so many to race-bait and to assume the worst in people," the Fox News Channel Host said on Friday.

Megyn Kelly was playing offense on Friday in confronting a controversy she stirred Wednesday when she repeatedly told kids that Santa Claus is a white man -- not a black and white penguin – as one writer says he should be.

“This would be funny,” Kelly said of the controversy on Friday, “if it were not so telling about our society, in particular the knee-jerk instinct by so many to race-bait and to assume the worst in people – especially people employed by the very powerful Fox News Channel.”

Kelly was addressing a minor media-firestorm that erupted over Wednesday’s segment on The Kelly Files in which several things she said about Santa Claus had become fodder for MSNBC commentators and late-night comedians.

On her show Friday, in fact, Kelly showed a montage of some of the people who have been bashing her.

The controversial Wednesday segment was a discussion about a Slate.com article where writer Alisha Harris asked: “Isn’t it time that our image of Santa better serve all the children he delights each Christmas?”

From there, Harris argued that Santa should no longer be portrayed as a fat, old, white man, but instead as a cute penguin who resides in the South Pole. Much of the rest of the folklore can remain unchanged, she wrote.

Kelly and her panel of guests on Wednesday treated Harris’ suggestion with a dose of lighthearted commentary mixed with some relatively serious discussion. Where Kelly got into trouble with her detractors is when she, on two occasions, attempted to assure any children who might be watching that Santa Claus is real and that he won’t suddenly change his appearance.

“For all you kids watching at home, Santa just is white,” Kelly said during the segment Wednesday. “But this person is just arguing that maybe we should also have a black Santa. But Santa is what he is.”

Later during the segment, she added: “Jesus was a white man, too. He was a historical figure, that’s a verifiable fact, as is Santa – I just want the kids watching to know that.”

The blow-back was quick, perhaps beginning with Media Matters for America blasting video of the segment to journalists nationwide, and arguably climaxing with a critique from Jon Stewart.

“Who are you actually talking to?” the host of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart asks Kelly in absentia after playing a clip her Wednesday segment. “Children who are sophisticated enough to be watching a news channel at 10 at night? Yet innocent enough to still believe that Santa Claus is real? Yet racist enough to be freaked out if he isn’t white?”

Kelly, who has been sick for a week and has been noticeably hoarse, then missed her Thursday show, which encouraged some outlets to theorize that she was in trouble at Fox News for making racially insensitive remarks.

Not so, say Fox News insiders. And prior to her Friday show, Kelly tweeted: “Tune in tonight at 9p where I will address – brace for it – the SANTA controversy!”

“I offered a tongue-in-cheek message for any kids watching,” Kelly said Friday. “Humor is part of what we try to bring to this show, but sometimes that is lost on the humorless.”

Nelson Mandela, we don't cry when angels die, cause you gave us the blueprint on how to fly!

A true hero, leader and legend. RIP Mandiba!


Nelson Mandela, who guided South Africa from the shackles of apartheid to multi-racial democracy and became an international icon of peace and reconciliation, died Thursday at age 95.

Imprisoned for nearly three decades for his fight against white minority rule, Mandela emerged determined to use his prestige and charisma to bring down apartheid while avoiding a civil war.

"The time for the healing of the wounds has come. The moment to bridge the chasms that divide us has come," Mandela said in his acceptance speech on becoming South Africa's first black president in 1994.

"We have, at last, achieved our political emancipation."

President Barack Obama hailed Mandela as a leader who left his country with a legacy of freedom and peace with the world.

"He achieved more than could be expected of any man," Obama said at the White House shortly after the announcement of Mandela's death.

"Today he's gone home, and we've lost one of the most influential, courageous and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this earth," Obama said.


President Jacob Zuma's announcement of the death late on Thursday shook South Africa. The streets of the capital Pretoria and of Johannesburg were hushed, and in bars and nightclubs, music was turned off as people gathered to quietly talk about the news.

A sombre Zuma told the nation in a televised address that Mandela "passed on peacefully in the company of his family around 20h50 on the 5th of December 2013".

"He is now resting. He is now at peace," Zuma said.

Tributes began flooding in almost immediately for a man who was a global symbol of struggle against injustice and of racial reconciliation.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron called Mandela "a hero of our time". "A great light has gone out in the world," he said.

Praise also came from African leaders. Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan said the death "will create a huge vacuum that will be difficult to fill in our continent."


"Today a great freedom fighter, Nelson Mandela has died, one of the world's most important symbols of freedom," said Moussa Abu Marzouk, a senior official of the Palestinian Islamist Hamas group, calling Mandela "one of the biggest supporters of our cause."

In Venezuela, President Nicolas Maduro declared three days of national mourning.

"Nine months since the passing of our comandante (Hugo Chavez), another giant of the people of the world passed away today. Madiba you will live forever!" Maduro said on Twitter.

Ordinary South Africans were in shock. "It feels like it's my father who has died. He was such a good man, who had good values the nation could look up to. He was a role model unlike our leaders of today," said Annah Khokhozela, 37, a nanny, speaking in Johannesburg.


Mourners gathered outside Mandela's home and spontaneous tributes sprang up around the world.

The famed Apollo Theater in the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan, which Mandela visited in 1990, lit its marquee with the words: "In memory of Nelson Mandela ... He changed our world."

In Washington, flowers and candles were set at the base of a statue of Mandela outside the South African Embassy.

Outside Mandela's old house in Vilakazi Street, Soweto, a crowd of people, some with South African flags draped around them, gathered to sing songs in praise of the revered statesman. "Mandela you brought us peace" was one of the songs.


"I have mixed feelings. I am happy that he is resting, but I am also sad to see him go," said Molebogeng Ntheledi, 45, reflecting the mix of reverence and resignation with which South Africans had been following Mandela's fight against illness.

National figures were quick to play down fears expressed by a minority that the passing of the great conciliator might lead again to a return of the racial and political tensions that racked South Africa during the apartheid era.

"To suggest that South Africa might go up in flames - as some have predicted - is to discredit South Africans and Madiba's legacy," another veteran anti-apartheid leader, former Archbishop of Cape Town Desmond Tutu, said. "Madiba" is Mandela's clan name.

"The sun will rise tomorrow, and the next day and the next ... It may not appear as bright as yesterday, but life will carry on," Tutu said in a statement of tribute.

Evil is apparently real : Teen who dismembered Jessica Ridgeway, 10, labeled her organs and kept her skull will die in prison serving sentence of life plus 86 years

Since death fascinates him, why not an execution?

A teenager who kidnapped, sexually assaulted and strangled to death a 10-year-old girl before dismembering her body and keeping her skull will die in prison after a judge labelled him 'evil' and sentenced him to consecutive hefty prison terms.

Jessica Ridgeway's killer Austin Sigg, 18, was emotionless as Jefferson County District Court Chief Judge Stephen Munsinger went through each of the 15 counts he pleaded guilty to, handing him a life sentence for first-degree murder and then 86 additional years for counts including sexual assault and kidnapping.

'Evil is apparently real. It was present in our community on October 5, 2012,' Munsinger told the court, after saying the case 'cries out for a life sentence.'

'I expect you to spend the rest of your natural life in prison,' he added to Sigg.

Sigg chose not to address the judge before being sentenced and didn't react while he learned his fate though his mother, Mindy Sigg, sobbed behind him in the courtroom. Afterward, he was handcuffed and led out without comment.

Prayers: Wendy Pesavento, Jessica Ridgeway's great grandmother, prays after the little girl's killer was sentenced to die in prison

Defense attorneys had argued state law required the judge to give him a sentence that made him eligible for parole after 40 years because he was a juvenile at the time of the crime. However, Munsinger overruled this.

At a press conference following the sentencing, prosecutors lauded Munsinger's decision and embraced Jessica's mother, Sarah Ridgeway, who appeared relieved her daughter's killer would die in prison.

'We are confident that this sentence ensures that Austin Sigg will never, ever leave the Department of Corrections and he will never, ever be in a position to prey on members of our community,' District Attorney Peter Weir said.

Earlier Tuesday, Chief Deputy District Attorney Hal Sargent described Sigg's October 5, 2012 atrocities, including how he snatched Jessica off the street, lied to her as she begged to know whether she'd ever see her mother again, raped her and then strangled her before cutting up her body for his own sexual gratification.

'We have never seen a crime as heinous, depraved, whatever adjective we use to describe it....'  Sargent said.

'He stole from Jessica her future, everything she was but also everything she would be... no sentence can undo that pain (her family) will carry with them for the rest of their lives. But it can make sure Austin Sigg never has the chance to inflict this pain on another person.

'I suggest you impose on Mr Sigg a life sentence and an actual life sentence that ensures he dies in prison,' he added to the judge.

Sarah Ridgeway left the courtroom before Sargent began his presentation and Mindy Sigg, sat hunched over in her seat, crying as he described the nearly two hours the teen kept the girl in his room after grabbing her off the street on her way to school.

'It's painful to imagine what he did to her in that time,' Sargent said before explaining how Sigg sexually assaulted the child, leaving her with horrific bruises then strangled her to death.

Sigg first tried to strangle Jessica with zip ties but he told police later that he didn't have 'enough leverage' so instead used his hands to strangle her for up to three minutes.

When he noticed she was still twitching, Sargent said Sigg filled a bathtub and forced her face into the scalding hot water.

'I don't want to go into all of the details of how he carefully, methodically dismembered her,' Sargent said, but he did explain how he disposed of some of her organs but left her vagina, placing a cross in it.

Defense: Sheriff's deputies escort Austin Sigg from the courtroom after he was sentenced in district court Tuesday. His defense attorney, Ryan Loewer earlier argued his client couldn't receive a life sentence because of his age

The disturbing details came a day after Jessica's family spoke of their heartbreak at the loss of their happy little girl who loved butterflies and the color purple.

'I miss her with every breath,' said Christine Ridgeway, Jessica's grandmother. 'There are no more hugs or kisses or her little toes digging into mine on the couch.'

She added: 'This monster took away the light, at least in my life. I would like to know that Mr. Sigg is in a very small cell for the rest of his life.'

The family spoke about the light Jessica brought to their lives and the fear and loss they've suffered since her murder, but the little girl's mother couldn't bring herself to speak at length.

'I don't think the defendant has a right to hear how he has affected me,' Sarah Ridgeway said. 'Once we walk out of this courtroom, we will no longer remember his name, only the legacy Jessica left behind.'

Jessica's other grandmother, Angie Moss told the court: 'Now when people ask me, "How many grandkids do you have?" I have to say, "Seven, but I used to have eight."'

Holding back tears, she asked the judge to give Sigg the maximum sentence.

'I can't imagine being his mother, trying to live with the fact that I raised a child like that, to live with or know that I had raised a child that was capable of doing this,' Moss said. 'I can't imagine the damage that has been done to his mother.'

Tears: Tears roll down the face of Austin Sigg, center, in district court in Golden, Colorado, on Monday as he watched the video of Jessica

The family had to endure hearing the horrifying details of how their 10-year-old daughter met a grisly end.

Sigg barely reacted as prosecutors pushed for consecutive sentences on all 15 convictions of Jessica's murder but he broke down in tears after a video celebrating Jessica's life was played to the courtroom.

Since he was 17 when he committed the crime, Sigg was exempt from the death penalty and eligible for parole after 40 years, but the other charges added up to a life sentence.

A psychologist told the court Monday how Sigg was sexually aroused by dismembering the girl in a bath tub and lied to her about how she would see her mother again.

Expert witness Anna Salter said: 'There's no logical motive for dismemberment other than sexual thrill.'

She also told how the teenager had no empathy for Jessica and calmly ate a snack as he recounted the horrific details of his crime. He strangled her to death with his bare hands after his first attempt to do so with a zip tie failed.

She added that Sigg kept certain body parts, including Jessica's skull, which Salter said he was particularly interested in. He also labeled the organs he removed from her body.

Other parts of Jessica's body were found in an Arvada field, days after she was kidnapped. Salter also testified that Sigg's mother found child pornography on his computer in 2008.

Sigg acted against the advice of his defense team, and plead guilty to killing and dismembering the fifth-grader after kidnapping her on her way to school on October 5, 2012.

Horror: Police discovered Jessica's body in a field off of a highway. It had been severely dismembered by Sigg, who admitted he killed her

According to pre-trial hearings, as well as Sigg's own admissions to investigators made after his arrest, there were plenty of warning signs indicating that the troubled mortuary science student was on a dangerous path.

At age 16, Sigg has developed an obsession with hard-core child pornography and spent a year watching violent videos depicting kids being tortured and raped.

Defense attorney Katherine Spengler told how Sigg's mother often inhaled paint in the late stages of her pregnancy and fell down the stairs once shortly before he was born.

Spengler said Sigg was born with an abnormality in his intestines, and that his birth by vacuum extraction also caused him to have a head deformity. She said he had several surgeries before he turned 6.

In May 2012, four months before the teen decided to fulfill some of his sickening fantasies by kidnapping little Jessica on her way to school, Sigg unsuccessfully tried to snatch a female jogger in Ketner Lake.

Jessica was snatched off the street while walking to school, and her disappearance panicked thousands of residents in Denver's western suburbs.

After Sigg pleaded guilty, the prosecution described how Sigg grabbed Jessica, pulled her into his car and tied up her hands and feet.

Jessica, a fifth-grader who loved purple and performing in a peewee cheerleading squad, left home to walk to school in Westminster on October 5, 2012. She never made it there.

Hundreds of people helped search for her. Jessica's backpack was found two days later in Superior, a town about six miles from her home. Days after that, human remains later identified as Jessica's were found in a park.

Authorities, meanwhile, urged residents to watch for any suspicious changes in neighbors' behavior. Officers guarded crosswalks and photographed cars in the area.

Parents escorted their children to and from area schools. Mailboxes and trees were encircled by ribbons in Jessica's favorite color, purple.

On October 19, 2012, a resident contacted authorities to alert them to Sigg because he reportedly had a fascination with death, Westminster police Detective Luis Lopez testified at a preliminary hearing. FBI agents took a DNA sample from Sigg.

On October 23, Mindy Sigg, called 911, saying her son wanted to confess.

Investigators said Sigg told them some of Jessica's remains were hidden in a crawl space in his mother's home, where he lived.

They said Sigg described how he abducted Jessica as she walked past his car. He said he bound her arms and her legs, drove around for a little bit, then took her to his house.

There, he told investigators, Sigg tried to strangle the girl and then used his hands to kill her. He also allegedly told investigators that he dismembered Jessica in a bathtub.

Lopez said Sigg's DNA was found on Jessica's clothing.

Sigg dropped out of high school after the 11th grade and later earned a GED. Former classmates say he was intelligent but complained about school and was bullied for having a high voice.

When asked about his criminal record on the 911 call, Sigg told the dispatcher: 'The only other thing that I have done was the Ketner Lake incident where the woman got attacked. That was me.'

In the attack on the jogger, investigator Michael Lynch testified that Sigg used homemade chloroform to attempt to subdue the woman. She escaped.

Convenience store worker sues Florida police for racial profiling after they stopped him 258 times for trespassing at his JOB

Florida again....

Harassment: Earl Sampson, 28, was questioned by police 258 times, searched more than 100 times, jailed 56 times and arrested for trespassing 62 times at his place of work

Harassment: Earl Sampson, 28, was questioned by police 258 times, searched more than 100 times, jailed 56 times and arrested for trespassing 62 times at his place of work

A Florida convenience store owner and his employee plan to sue the city of Miami Gardens and its police department for racial profiling after his employee was questioned by police 258 times, searched more than 100 times, jailed 56 times and arrested for trespassing 62 times.

Alex Saleh, the proprietor at the 207 Quickstop on Northwest 207 Street in Miami Gardens, said he has more than two dozen surveillance videos to support his case.

The employee at the centre of the controversy, Earl Sampson, 28, says police officers constantly harass him while he’s at work, sometimes two to three times a day, without any justified cause.

‘They’re always stopping me, going in my pockets, asking me for my ID, running my name,’ Sampson told CBS4. ‘I feel like I can’t even be in my own neighborhood anymore.’

In three separate instances on the video clips, police can be seen questioning the same man at the same location.

Sampson’s lengthy rap sheet is filled with minor infractions, including more than 60 citations for trespassing, mostly at the 207 Quickstop, where he works.

‘I’ve seen the outrageous police abusing people in the community. They’ve been treating the people wrong, Saleh said.

Saleh, Sampson and their attorney Steve Lopez plan to file a federal civil rights lawsuit soon against the police department.

The complaint will allege officers have been instructed to illegally stop and search citizens via racial profiling.

‘They’re stopping people for no reason in front of the business. Anywhere. Illegally search people,’ Saleh told CBS4.

Mayor Oliver Gilbert said he would not comment on pending litigation, however just two weeks ago, following a string of recent shootings, Gilbert explained the city’s crime-reduction strategy.

‘The line is zero tolerance,’ Gilbert explained to Pastrana. ‘So if you break a law, you’re going to jail.’

But Sampson argues he has not broken the law the times he was stopped for trespassing at his place of employment.

Mayor Gilbert referenced a recent murder outside the Quickstop, but Saleh said the pattern and practice of profiling people was in place long before that shooting.

‘There in violence in Miami Gardens, but that doesn’t give them a right to violate people’s rights,’ Saleh explained.


Schoolboy spent years raping little girl aged younger than 8 after watching internet pornography

Raising the next generation of rapists...

stock boy computer

A neglected 13-year-old boy who raped a young girl for two years avoided a jail sentence when a court heard of his own troubled background (file picture)

A ten-year-old boy repeatedly raped and sexually abused a seven-year-old girl over two years after becoming addicted to hardcore pornography, a court has heard.

The schoolboy would sit at his home computer for hours scouring the internet for extreme porn, the court was told.

After looking at the vile images he would play out his sexual fantasies on the young girl – which later developed into attempted rape and rape.

The court heard how he committed sex acts on the girl between the age of ten and 12 when she was aged only seven and eight.

Yesterday the boy, now 13, escaped a custodial sentence after a judge heard how he had been physically and emotionally abused as a young child.

The court was told the boy was brought up in a home that lacked any ‘sexual boundaries’ and may well have witnessed his mother having sex.

His mother was also aware that he was spending hours a day looking at  indecent images on the internet but did nothing to stop it, the court heard.

The case comes just days after calls for more restrictions to online pornography following Google and Microsoft’s announcement they would block internet search results linked to images of child abuse.

Now all 20million families in the UK who have an internet connection will be forced to say whether they want access to online pornography. Hundreds of thousands are already signing up to have it blocked.

Mold Crown Court was told the schoolboy began accessing hardcore images on a computer from the age of nine. Referring to the victim, Judge Niclas Parry told the boy: ‘In fact what you were doing was using her to play out fantasies that you had been watching on the internet, images of extreme pornography.’

Judge Parry said the boy had suffered an appalling early childhood and had been subjected to physical and emotional abuse.

He said the boy’s mother chose to ‘ignore that you were accessing for hours a day images of a pornographic nature on the internet’.

The court was told there was clear evidence of very poor parenting on behalf of his mother, which bordered on deliberate neglect.

The judge at Mold Crown Court, pictured, described the case as 'extremely sad'

Reports showed this neglect had gone on for around seven years, during which time he had also been abused by his mother’s partner.

And the court heard that the boy’s home environment lacked any barriers to the adult world.

The judge said: ‘You may have witnessed your mother and her partner engaged in sexual activity. You were brought up in a home that lacked any sexual boundaries.’

The court heard the boy, who sat in court with social workers and employees of a children’s development centre where he is now living, was left without support or guidance.

Elen Owen, defending, described the case as ‘extremely sad’. Reports suggested the assaults and rapes were a way of satisfying the boy’s emotional needs rather than for sexual gratification alone.  Judge Parry said the boy could have been detained in custody because the crimes were so serious but said he wanted him to be rehabilitated rather than harmed further.

The boy, who admitted committing rape, attempted rape and sexual assault, was placed on a three-year youth rehabilitation order with supervision, as well as a residency order so that he remains at the specialist centre where he is living.

The teenager, from Llandudno, North Wales, was also ordered to register with the police as a sex offender. The court heard he was seeking therapy to overcome his addiction.

The judge said work to counsel the young girl, who is also in care, was under way but that it may take years for her to understand that what happened to her was not normal.

Over the next few months all existing internet users will be contacted by their service providers asking whether they want access to online pornography.

New customers who set up a broadband account or switch providers will have the filters automatically selected, while customers who do not accept or decline will have them activated by default.

The filters will apply to all devices linked to a home wi-fi network and across any public network, such as those that can be accessed from shops, where children are likely to be present. Only adults will be able to change the settings.


Man arrested for 'placing bomb beneath ex-wife's car as she shopped with their two small children'

An attempted honor killing and terrorist attack...wonder this wasn't covered more in the media...

A man was arrested for trying to kill his ex-wife and two small children by placing a bomb underneath the family's car in Redlands Town Center in California on Monday.

The explosive, planted beneath her car parked near the JC Penny, would have killed people in the car and in the surrounding area had it not been detonated.

Hundreds of shoppers were evacuated at 1 p.m. as a bomb squad used a robot device to remove the bomb, reported ABC News.

Steven James Sunny, 28, was arrested for attempted murder after an explosive device was located underneath his ex-wife's car in a Redlands shopping center

Steven Sunny, a 28-year-old Victorville man, was arrested at his girlfriends residence at a San Bernardino trailer park Monday night.

He was arrested on three counts of attempted murder: one count for his ex wife, and two counts for his two young children.

'We're pretty clear that the woman was targeted by her ex-husband,'Said Redlands Police Spokesperson Carl Baker to ABC.

Sunny's ex-wife and children were shopping at Redland's Town Center when he planted a pipe bomb beneath her car in the parking lot next to J.C Penny

Police were called after a woman called 9-1-1 at 1 p.m. after noticing a questionable object in a vehicle, reported Redlands Daily Facts.

Police roped off the suspicious area and shoppers and employees from seven businesses were left waiting for hours until they could return to their cars.

Finally, the bomb went off sending a loud boom. The San Bernardindo County Bomb Squad surveyed the area to make sure there were no other surreptitiously placed bombs.

'We want to make sure you’re not leaving with anything else that is a concern,' he said to numbers of impatient families trying to return to their vehicles. They were able to return at around 5 p.m.

The Bomb Squad identified the device as a pipe bomb and police believe that Sunny was targeting his ex-wife after a domestic dispute.

A pipe bomb is a pipe filled with explosive materials and sealed off. It is easy to create at home at a low cost and can create a significant amount of damage.

Husband shoots and sets estranged wife on fire for trying to move out of their family home before killing his 14-year-old daughter, brother-in-law and himself

In light of increasing murderous violence directed at women by white men, we've added a new honor killing category.

A husband is believed to have killed his estranged wife, their teenage daughter and his brother-in-law before killing himself in a horrific murder-suicide which rocked a Phoenix suburb yesterday.

Officers found Carol Sanders' burned body in the home's back yard after responding to neighbors reports of gunfire.

Inside the home they discovered the couple's 14-year-old daughter Audra who had also been shot dead.

Carol's brother Tom Fitzpatrick, 49, was found shot in his vehicle outside while Michael Sanders, 51, killed himself in a nearby alley.

Police said the couple had separated and Carol was collecting her belongings from the family home when her husband attacked.

The shooting came just hours after they appeared in a Maricopa County Courtroom over a protective order Carol Sanders, 51, had taken out against Michael.

She reportedly filed for divorce last month and had moved out with her daughter some time before, AZFamily reported.

'I understand he had an order of protection put out against him, and it may very well be related to that,' Sgt. Trent Crump, a spokesman for Phoenix police, told the website.

'It certainly is a chilling case .... We believe it was planned out. He left his identification in his vehicle.'

'We understand, by witness accounts, that he first shot the brother seated in his truck in the front driveway.

'He then went into the home were additional gunshots were heard. We believe that was the daughter and the mother. Ultimately, we believe he took his wife out back and set her body on fire. It certainly is a horrific scene.'

Tributes flooded in for Audra, an eighth grade student at Desert Shadows Middle School. 

She was described as a good student and a popular member of the school choir.

'Everyone is devastated, we just really are,' said Kim Cooper, a parent at the school told AZFamily.

'Audra was just a bright, bright girl...neat personality, interesting, her teachers loved her.'

A statement from Paradise Valley Unified School District read: 'We are heartbroken over the loss of our student, a 14-year-old child, and her family.

'The nature of their deaths is particularly difficult to accept. Audra Sanders was in the 8th grade and was a member of the school chorus.

The principal of Desert Shadows Middle School visited Audra's classes this morning to inform her classmates and to share with them that a team of adults is available to them if they need assistance processing their thoughts and feelings.'

'We will have counseling and support personnel at the school in the days ahead, as long as it appears they are needed.'

Friends said her father was extremely protective of his only child.

'We played truth or dare and had oral sex in a classroom': Former students testify against high school English teacher with whom they had under-age affairs

Who will protect the children?

Two of the victims of Texas high school teacher Brandon Ashley McDaniel have taken to the stand in the sexual assault case against the 38-year-old, sharing similar stories of the way McDaniel groomed them both into having sexual relations with him.

McDaniel, a married man, is facing an 80-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to having sexual relations with five female students - one as as young as 14 - at Sam Houston High School in Arlington.

A court has heard how McDaniel, who resigned as chairman of the school's English department following his arrest in February, used text messages to start up relationships with the girls beginning in 2001.

 A former high school teacher pleaded guilty Monday to four counts of having an improper relationship with students.

Brandon Ashley McDaniel, 38, had been accused of having sexual relationships with five students at Sam Houston High School in Arlington and could receive a maximum of 20 years in prison on each count

He has pleaded guilty to four charges and could receive a maximum penalty of 20 years for each count.

One of the victims, who is now 20 and attends Texas A&M University, testified that she was 17 when McDaniel sent her texts that gradually grew more sexual over time.

He asked is she were a virgin and one message asked if she touched herself, the Star Telegram reported.

'One day in October, he kissed me,' she said. 'A full-blown, on the mouth kiss.'

McDaniel also allegedly asked her if he was a bad person for wanting to kiss her.

The court heard how, two days after the kissing incident, they started meeting after school in his maroon Dodge Durango.

The girl would take his keys and go to the car, ducking down in the passenger seat and waiting for him to come. They would have oral sex in the car, she testified.

McDaniel allegedly told her he had never cheated on his wife before.

The next woman to testify Monday — now a 20-year-old University of Texas student — told the jury that McDaniel had said the same thing to her about never cheating on his wife.

 A former high school teacher pleaded guilty Monday to four counts of having an improper relationship with students.

Scene: Brandon Ashley McDaniel was the chairman of the English department at Sam Houston High School in Arlington. He had sex with at least one student on the premises, according to the victims testimony, and met others in the parking lot

The woman called McDaniel 'a laid-back teacher' who did not dress professionally.

The two exchanged cellphone numbers after McDaniel asked her to do the lighting for a school dance project.

She claimed she soon got a message from him saying: 'Tell me your darkest fantasy.'

One day while they were in the computer lab, McDaniel started kissing her.

They played truth-or-dare in text messages and had oral sex in a classroom, she said.

'He said he had never cheated on his wife,' the woman said.

Court affidavits filed upon McDaniel's arrest stated all sexual acts were consensual.

One of the arrest affidavits, according to Star Telegram, alleged McDaniel's started a relationship with a 14-year-old.

When she turned 15 she once spent the night at McDaniel's house when his wife was away, and he was also with the teen in her bed.

When her mother suddenly came home, McDaniel's jumped out the window, the affidavit said.

The case against Brandon Ashley McDaniel is being heard here, at Tarrant County Courthouse in Fort Worth, Texas

Both women who testified Monday said they initially did not want to take the stand.

Both said their parents were not aware that they were testifying.

One woman who testified had told police about having sex with McDaniel but then completely recanted and signed a statement for his defense attorneys saying she did not wish to prosecute.

'I thought all parties involved had equal responsibility and it was unfair for just him to be at fault,' she said.

Alana Minton, a Tarrant County prosecutor working on the case, asked the woman if she wanted to be on the witness stand Monday.

'I had put this all behind me,' she said. 'This is just bringing it all back up.'

McDaniel has asked the jury to recommend his punishment.

He will be sentenced at a later date.

The status of McDaniel's marriage remains unclear.

Police officer shoots dead his ex-girlfriend and her new firefighter boyfriend before turning the gun on himself

Another white honor killing

A jilted lover shot dead his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend on Sunday before turning the gun on himself.

Marie Hartman, 26, and firefighter Andrew Hoffman, 27, were killed at his Baltimore home in the early hours of Sunday by police officer Christopher Robinson who then took his own life.

Miss Hartman's teenage sister Brittany told police that she hid in the closet while she listened to the gunshots before fleeing.

The three had returned to Mr Hoffman's home around 1.30am after going to a Halloween party and picking up fast food.

Police believe that Robinson followed them and then went to Mr Hoffman's door. When the firefighter confronted the police officer, he was shot.

Brittany, 18, told police she heard screaming and more gunshots from her hiding place in a closet. She then climbed out of a window to escape.

Police found the bodies of the two men and woman at the home.

Miss Hartman was mother to a six-year-old son. Relatives and friends struggled to come to terms with the shocking deaths as they held a vigil for the couple on Sunday night.

Fred Scheper, 29, spoke of Mr Hoffman, telling the Baltimore Sun: 'That was my best friend. He saved people's lives every day.'

Mr Scheper said that he had never seen his friend as happy as in his relationship with Miss Hartman.

The family of Mr Hoffman, a third-generation firefighter, released this statement: 'Our hearts are absolutely broken over the loss of our son, brother, grandson and uncle.

Our beloved Andy dedicated his life to protecting and saving others with the Baltimore City Fire Department as a Firefighter/Paramedic. We have come to learn that he died doing the same thing, putting others first. 

'The only survivor of this horrific tragedy told us Andy tried to protect her and Marie, and because of that, he became the first victim.

'We have lost someone who meant so much to us and so many family members and friends. It’s hard to imagine going forward without him, but we know Andy died a hero. That is the way he lived his life and we couldn’t be prouder of him.'

Wayne Robinson, brother of the alleged shooter, said that the 37-year-old had been struggling to cope with his break-up from Miss Hartman in August.

However he said that he had no idea that he would become violent.

Wayne Robinson, a firefighter who was also a friend of victim Mr Hoffman, told the Sun: 'I don't know what happened last night, but the person that pulled that trigger wasn't the Chris that I know.'

Close family members and friends posted tributes to Robinson on his page on Sunday.

His mother Marian Moore-Robinson wrote: 'Chris was a great guy! What got him to go over there - we may never know. He had been out on a date, and was texting his ex-wife till midnight. I just don't understand. Three families are now broken. Why?'

Robinson, a Marines Corp veteran from Abingdon, went to the home at 1.30am on Sunday and shot the couple before killing himself, according to a police spokesman.

Miss Hartman's stepfather Ed Chaney told the Sun that she had dated the police officer on and off over the past year.

Mr Chaney said his stepdaughter had been receiving text messages from her ex-boyfriend pleading for her to give their relationship another chance.

Wayne Robinson said his brother became aware a few weeks ago that Miss Hartman was dating the firefighter.

'Sadomasochist' lesbian charged with raping girlfriend after 'rough sex'

Arrested: Self-proclaimed 'sadomasochist' Mia McCarthy, 23 (pictured) has been accused of raping her 52-year-old girlfriend after a night of 'rough sex'

Arrested: Self-proclaimed 'sadomasochist' Mia McCarthy, 23 (pictured) has been accused of raping her 52-year-old girlfriend after a night of 'rough sex'

A 23-year-old self-proclaimed 'sadomasochist' has been accused of raping her older girlfriend with a 'marital aid' after a night of 'rough sex' in July.

Mia C. McCarthy was arrested on October 25 for allegedly punching, biting, choking and threatening to kill her girlfriend of nine months that day.

The unidentified victim also told officers McCarthy, from Lake Worth in Florida, raped her after the victim's birthday on July 21. 

The victim reported the attack to police on October 25 at Butterfly House, a sexual assault care center in Wellington, according to The Sun-Sentinel.

The victim said she'd had a violent fight with McCarthy that day.

She claimed McCarthy choked her so hard she almost passed out.

Detectives found bruising, bite marks and scratches on the victim's neck.

She also said McCarthy threatened her, saying, 'breathe or I'll kill you', which has left her in constant fear her former girlfriend will kill her.

The victim also claimed McCarthy assaulted her on July 21 after the couple partied at Delux, a Delray Beach nightclub, for the victim's birthday.

She said McCarthy raped her with a 'marital aid' after smoking Kratom, a product the Drug Enforcement Administration describes as having opiate, sedative and euphoric effects.

'It was the first time McCarthy got rough with her and [the victim] did not know what to do,' the detective wrote in the report.

McCarthy, who was arrested on October 25, told investigators the couple enjoyed rough sex which sometimes left marks.

She said they didn't use safe words, 'no' meant 'yes' and she meant to stop but didn't. She said she apologized to the victim afterwards.

McCarthy faces charges of battery, domestic battery strangulation, attempted murder and sexual assault.

She remains in Palm Beach County Jail in lieu of $55,000 bail.


Why isn't the media calling LAX shooter Paul Ciancia a terrorist?

The complexion for the protection?

Can you imagine for a moment that you woke up one morning to hear the news of one of our nation’s largest international airports essentially being held hostage by some brown gun-wielding anti-government madman with a name like Muhammad Ali (or Aziz Ansari) walking around with a high-powered rifle shooting and killing innocent people as they simply waited to board their flights inside the airport terminal?

LAXPHOTO

If that hypothetical scenario did ever occur, do you think that the vast majority of Americans would have any problem at all labeling the aforementioned situation an act of “terrorism”?

Of course not.

But in reality, it was a 23-year-old white man named Paul Anthony Ciancia who took his anti-government political ideology clearly into the realm of ‘terrorism’ when he inflicted mass violence aimed at instilling terror within the general public as thousands of innocent airline travelers at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) feared for their lives one sunny Friday morning.

Media reports are stating that Mr. Ciancia grew up in New Jersey and reportedly has “strong anti-government views,” according to a report from NBC News reporter Pete Williams. This assessment was determined by the “anti-government materials” in his possession when he was captured. Furthermore, the Associated Press also reported that Mr. Ciancia, who was dressed in military-style fatigues during the terrorist attack, carried a handwritten note that said he “wanted to kill TSA [agents] and pigs [aka police].”

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the language and references that Paul Anthony Ciancia used in his writings seemed to put him “squarely in the conspiracy-minded world of the antigovernment ‘Patriot’ movement” with references to the longstanding New World Order conspiracy theory. According to the SPLC, these so-called Patriots also “increasingly see the DHS, which produces intelligence assessments of extremists that are distributed to other law enforcement agencies, as an enemy and even a collaborator in the New World Order conspiracy.”

Now, the same right-wingers who would shout “terrorism” from the rooftops if the LAX airport shooter was a Muslim will likely avoid using the word “terrorism” at all since the shooter was a white Italian dude from Jersey. They will characterize this non-Muslim terrorist as a crazy kooky loner whose undiagnosed mental-health issues or work-related stress probably led to the attacks.

Also, these same right-wingers who always call for the “racial profiling” of Arabs and Muslims after every terrorist attack will now be silent since they would now have to call for the racial profiling of every 20-something white dude from New Jersey.

This would pretty much mean that the entire cast of Jersey Shore should now be under NSA surveillance.

So if we as a nation fail to adequately condemn all acts of terrorism equally- including the LAX airport attack by anti-government terrorist Paul Anthony Ciancia- the only clear message that we will be sending to the rest of the world is that the word “terrorist” in America only applies to brown dudes with foreign-sounding last names and does not apply to white men who commit those same acts of terrorism.

Terry Davis Jailed After Repeatedly Having Sex With Roommate's Puppy

A repeat offender? Big surprise



Alton, Illinois - Terry Wayne Davis, a 43-year-old Illinois man, has been jailed after he was allegedly caught in the act of raping a Rottweiler puppy.

According to police, an investigation was launched earlier this month when an Alton apartment resident returned home to find Davis having sex with his 5-month-old Rottweiler, Lucy.

Davis, who is a convicted child sex offender, moved into the dog owner's apartment about a week prior to the incident.

Investigators say the man came home to find Davis lying on a love seat, restraining and having sex with the dog.

When the dog's owner asked Davis "What the hell are you doing?"  Davis allegedly replied "I'm sorry man, I have no excuse."

Davis then allegedly fled the apartment on a bicycle while the dog's owner called police. Davis was located and taken into custody a short time later.

During a police interview, Davis reportedly told detectives that he had engaged in sexual intercourse with the puppy on two occasions before being caught by his roommate.

Davis was booked into jail and charged with three felony counts of sexual contact with an animal and one count of failure to register a change of address. 

Davis was ordered to register as a sex offender and required to notify authorities of any change of address after he was convicted of raping a 16-year-old girl. His bail has been set at $50,000.

White supremacist who murdered 82 year old Muslim grandfather blew up his parents flat while testing homemade explosives before planting nail bombs at mosques in UK terror campaign

Why isn't white media calling this man a white terrorist? Protecting their own perhaps?

Let off: Pavlo Lapshyn had blown up his parents' flat in Ukraine but was allowed to come to Britain to launch a racist war

Let off: Pavlo Lapshyn had blown up his parents' flat in Ukraine but was allowed to come to Britain to launch a racist war

A Ukrainian white supremacist blew up his parents' flat while experimenting with homemade explosives before he went on to murder an Asian pensioner and bomb three mosques, it emerged today.

'Evil and calculating’ Pavlo Lapshyn was let off by police in his home country and later allowed to travel to Britain as he waged a one-man race war.

Five days after arriving in the UK in April this year the 25-year-old killed Mohammed Saleem by stabbing him three times from behind as the 82-year-old made his way home from evening prayers.

In a three-month terror campaign he then planted bombs near West Midlands' mosques as part of a campaign he said was motivated by racial hatred aimed at killing 'non-Whites'.

But three years earlier he was was arrested when he experimented with bomb-making chemicals that caused an explosion sending him crashing into another room, smashing windows, cracking a wall and blowing out the front door.

His parents were visiting the countryside and their horrified neighbours called emergency services and firemen rescued Lapshyn from the flat.

But according to local police records, he was then arrested and fined on charges of ‘hooliganism’ and ‘producing, saving, transporting and using pyrotechnics’.

While he agreed to reimburse his neighbours for damage caused, in typical fashion Lapshyn said little about the incident.

When pressed about what happened by his shocked parents, he did not talk in detail, saying he was simply making home-made fireworks, which exploded because of the heat.

Witness Nikolay Dudiak told reporters at the time: ‘He was trying to make a bomb in his own flat. He blew up the door as well. The guy flew backwards and landed on his couch. It felt like an atomic bomb had hit.’

Mr Dudiak added: 'At the time we thought he was doing an experiment to do with his studies. We had forgotten about it but now when we saw on TV what happened in Birmingham we remembered. I'm sure there was a connection - he must have been practising making explosives.'

The case had been closed, with officers believing the explosion was due to ‘scientific research’, but in light of the charges against Lapshyn in the UK, it is now being dealt with as a terrorist incident and files have been sent to the national secret service and Interpol.

Yesterday the Old Bailey heard the PhD student – who once posed with the British Ambassador when he was awarded the chance to work in Britain – admitted he had killed a Muslim pensioner before he had ordered bomb-making materials online as he plotted mass murder in a series of mosque attacks.

Speaking outside court, murder victim Mohammed Saleem's daughter Shazia Khan said: 'Our dad was a lovely, kind man who left prayers for the last time that night. He did not do anything to deserve this horrific killing other than being a Muslim.

'He was targeted simply because of his faith. His beard and his clothing represented who he was. Pavlo chose to kill him that night with only that intention in mind.

'It's such a pity that he has lost his whole life for some personal hatred or opinion that he has of a particular faith. To kill someone because of what they look like and what they believe in is unforgivable.'

Pavlo Lapshyn’s parents last night described their horror at hearing about his crimes in the UK.

Distraught: Pavlo Lapshyn's father Sergei Pavlovwch said he and his family cannot understand why his son wanted to kill Muslims

Distraught: Pavlo Lapshyn's father Sergei Pavlovwch, pictured, said he and his family cannot understand why his son wanted to kill Muslims

The PhD student’s father Sergei Pavlovych, 66, a university professor, fought back tears as he explained how his family is at a total loss to understand how their ‘mummy’s boy’ could have murdered an innocent grandfather and plotted to massacre up to 1,000 more Muslims.

The conviction has shattered the frail man, who added that his wife Galina, 51, who cannot walk following a horrific car accident earlier this year, almost died from the shock of hearing the atrocities committed by their only child.

His son was brought up in a small £30,000 three-bedroom apartment on an old Soviet estate in the run down district of Pobeda, or ‘Victory’, in the industrial city of Dnipropetrovsk, 250 miles south east of Kiev.

In fact, he revealed his own mother Raziya Halili was a Volga Tatar - brought up in a Turkic speaking nomadic community whose members are predominantly Sunni Muslims.

Meanwhile, Mr Pavlovych’s father Pavlo - who their son was named after - was a decorated war hero who risked his life fighting Nazis as a Guard Lieutenant tank commander for the Red Army.

He was awarded the titles Hero of the Soviet Union, the Order of Lenin, two Orders of the Red Star and various other medals for the bravery he showed in holding a major railway junction near Warsaw.

‘My mother often took care of Pasha when he was a child,’ Mr Pavlovych said.

‘She died before Pasha started school but I think he would remember her. There would be memories from his childhood years. She was Tatar for sure. We think she was a Muslim in childhood but afterwards everyone had to be atheist.

‘Pasha was named in honour of his grandfather, he was very proud. I just don’t know what happened to Pasha. He is our only child. We protected him from bad influences. He grew up a good and decent man.’

‘When we found out Pasha was arrested for the attacks and for murdering an elderly person - stabbing him three times with a knife in the back - I couldn’t imagine anything more absurd. My wife, who cannot get out of bed, was so shocked she barely survived the news. She can’t sleep, she won’t talk about it. We feel such grave sorrow.’

After failing a medical for the Army because of flat feet, Lapshyn enrolled at the National Metallurgical University of Ukraine, where he became engrossed in his study of engineering technology.

Working under portraits of Lenin in a cobwebbed basement studio with cracked windows, exposed wires and rusty shelves, Lapshyn quickly mastered the various machinery which students used to mould and shape metal for aircrafts.

While quietly working for his PhD in the previous years at his university’s basement metal studio, Lapshyn had been developing the skills he would use to create and detonate home-made nail bombs with the intention of killing hundreds of Muslims in British mosques.

Lapshyn, who was also known as Pasha, had started to read books which celebrated Nazi ideology and became obsessed with the Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, shaving his head to look more like the American mass murderer.

As the far right movement gained momentum over the past year in Ukraine, he joined groups which celebrate ‘White Pride’, including ‘Slavic Revival’ and ‘The Hammer of National Socialism’.

Arriving in Birmingham on April 24 this year, the 25-year-old was ready to execute his plan - researching targets, buying parts for home-made bombs and pouncing on a frail Muslim grandfather as he made his way home from evening prayers.

And all the while, those closest to him had no idea.

Viktor Laskin, a senior lecturer at the National Metallurigical Academy of Ukraine, has known Lapshyn for 10 years and frequently exchanged messages with his student after he arrived in Birmingham.

‘Pasha was always a humble, quiet, boy. We called him the grey mouse. He was very shy and was always reading.

‘His parents were worried that he always studied and didn’t have a private life. His father wanted him to meet girls. He was worried about it,’ he said.

‘We didn’t think he had problems with Muslims. We didn’t think he was involved with far right groups before. But it was impossible to know what was going on inside his head.’

Revealed: The woman who was thrown to her death from 15th-floor Sydney balcony by her jealous fiancé

Another white honor killing...

Lisa Harnum, above, died after falling from the 15th floor of an apartment in Sydney, Australia in 2011

Lisa Harnum, above, died after falling from the 15th floor of an apartment in Sydney, Australia in 2011

This is the stunning girlfriend who fell 15 storeys to her death, moments after being filmed grappling with her 'controlling and abusive' fiancé.

Lisa Harnum was allegedly heard yelling, 'please help me, God help me' as she fought for her life on the balcony of the flat she shared with Simon Gittany in Sydney, Australia, on the night of July 30 2011.

But nobody came. Moments later she was lying dead, her body 150-feet down on the footpath below.

And today it was revealed the 30-year-old's terrifying last moments were captured on the very pin-hole camera Gittany set up to spy on her every move.

Gittany, 37, has pleaded not guilty to murdering his Canadian-born fiancée, claiming he was trying to save her from suicide before she fell.

He has been regularly accompanied to his trial by his current girlfriend.

A neighbour, however, claims he saw a topless man 'fist-pumping' on the terrace after something had gone over the edge, 9News reported.

Another witness walking past The Hyde apartment block in the heart of the city told police he saw a topless man holding what appeared to be black luggage horizontally over the balcony before it fell to earth.

'Of course, it was not a piece of luggage, it was Miss Harnum wearing black clothing,' Crown prosecutor Mark Tedeschi QC said today at Gittany's murder trial.

Gittany was so jealous, Mr Tedeschi claimed, that he had banned her from seeing friends, forbade her from taking a job as a hairdresser and even hired a personal trainer to come to their home so she wouldn't go to the gym where he thought she would be ogled by other men.

His hand clamped over her mouth to stifle her 'bone-chilling' screams for help, a shirtless Simon Gittany wrestles fiancee Lisa Harnam - minutes before she plunged 15-storeys to her death.

Describing Gittany as 'controlling and abusive', Tedeschi said he made her become Catholic, do her hair and dress exactly how he told her.

'[He believed] it was her function in life to submit to his will as the male in the relationship,' Mr Tedeschi said.

But his vice-like grip over her life was still not enough, the court heard. Mr Tedeschi told jurors Gittany even set up a network of mini cameras around the apartment to keep tabs on her and secretly read her emails and text messages.

At court: Gittany, 37, is accused of murdering Canadian-born Miss Harnam on July 30, 2011.

At court: Gittany, 37, denies murdering Canadian-born Miss Harnam on July 30, 2011, claiming he was trying to stop her from jumping

It was because of this forensic campaign of surveillance that he caught wind of her plan to leave him with the help of two friends, the court heard. As a result he allegedly abused one of them over the phone, advising them to stay away.

In the months leading up to her death, the court heard, Miss Harnum had become so fearful of her fiancé's jealous rage that, when she did venture outside, she only ever stared at the ground or into his eyes for fear he might accuse her of looking at other men.

'The deceased's confidence became more and more diminished,' Mr Tedeschi said.

Giving evidence, Miss Harnum's mother said told the court: 'She told me he was always very controlling and wanted to always know where she was, what she was doing, who she was with, what she was wearing.'

She said when Miss Harnum plucked up the courage to tell Gittany she was leaving him, he threatened to destroy her chances of getting permanent Australian residency - a dream she had harboured since moving to the country.

Gittany's defence barrister Philip Strickland SC said Miss Harnum was a 'conflicted, complicated and confused woman' prone to over-reacting when she didn't get her own way.

Mr Strickland said Gittany only monitored her text messages via a computer programme because she had told him she had a secret that she couldn't disclose to him.

'The secret ate into their relationship,' he said

Her fingerprints were not found on the glass or metal rail of the balcony onto which he said she climbed before she fell.


Drunk racist filmed abusing fellow passenger on the Underground claiming Japanese people killed two of his cousins

Blame it on the alcohol..why do almost always target women, and not men?


A 52-year-old man has been arrested after a commuter was filmed racially abusing a woman on the London Underground.

The video, which has been posted on YouTube, shows the drunk man launching a foul-mouthed tirade of abuse at the innocent woman.

Commuters were left horrified as the man, from Watford, Hertfordshire, reeled off a series of insults about the Japanese - labelling them 'nasty people', 'bad men' and a 'vicious bunch'.

Abuse: He reels off insults about the Japanese - labelling them 'nasty people', 'bad men' and a 'vicious bunch'

He has been arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence, police have confirmed.

In an expletive-littered rant, lasting almost six minutes, the man claims his uncle died in the River Kwai during the Second World War.

He then aggressively points his finger at the young woman and accuses her of torturing his relative.

'You tortured him. Get yourself off the train, get yourself off the train,' he can be heard telling the passenger, who is sat on the other side of the tube on the Bakerloo line.

'You're nasty people. I mean this s***. You're nasty people. 'F*** off, get out of my country.'

Illogical: He aggressively points his finger at the female passenger and accuses her of torturing his uncle

The unidentified man, who appears to be under the influence of alcohol, then repeatedly shouts 'Sayonara' - the Japanese translation of 'goodbye' - adding: 'Don't you torture my relatives'.

He ignores the shocked woman's cries of 'I'm not nasty. You're nasty', before turning his attention to the English man filming the footage and asking where he comes from.

The passenger replies: 'Does it matter, really? Are you going to start sorting everyone on the train, man, one by one? Why are you blasting at her? What have you got against the Japanese?'

Leaning forward, the man shouts: 'They killed my f****** two f****** cousins in the Second World War.' 

'But she didn't kill your cousins, did she?' asks the passenger. 'Why is she going to apologise? What has she done to you?'

The man, pointing his finger at the Japanese woman, replies 'She doesn't even f****** realise that she's a bad man. The Japanese are bad - same as the Germans.'

Menacing: The unidentified man then repetedly shouts 'Sayonara' - the Japanese translation of 'goodbye'

Despite the cameraman's best efforts to calm him down, the man then becomes increasingly violent - threatening to knock him out in 'one punch'.

'I’m ex-Parachute Regiment! What do you know? You're a f****** boy man. Shut the f*** up,' he says.

'I’ve done two tours in Northern Ireland and the Falklands. Don’t even f****** look at me.'

He then produces a bottle of wine and takes a swig, before dangling the bottle menacingly in the passenger's face.

'Do you want some of that?' he asks threateningly. 'No, because you don't drink.'

A British Transport Police spokesman said: 'A 52-year-old man from Watford was arrested on Saturday, October 19, on suspicion of a racially-aggravated public order offence.

'An investigation was launched after we were made aware of a YouTube clip of a man using racist language on board a Bakerloo line train.'

She added that the man has been bailed, pending enquiries. He is expected to be brought before magistrates on October 30.

The abuse is not the first of its kind to be filmed on the Underground.

Last year, a woman was jailed for 21 weeks for hurling racist abuse at fellow passengers while drunk.

Jacqueline Woodhouse, then 42, snarled at stunned commuters seated beside her: 'I used to live in England and now I live in the United Nations.'

Her champagne-fuelled rant was recorded by a passenger, who posted the seven-minute clip on YouTube where it caused a sensation.

Speaking at Westminster Magistrates' Court at the time, District Judge Michael Snow said: 'Anyone viewing that would feel a deep sense of shame that our fellow citizens could be subject to such behaviour.'



Man 'angry at the world' repeatedly bought kittens from Craigslist, named them and then stomped them to death in his 'kill room'

Where's PETA? Insert mental health excuse...

A man has admitted having a 'cat kill room' in his Alabama home where he would throw kittens he had bought off Craigslist against the wall until their necks broke, or stomp on them.

Ronald Fraser Golden, who has been charged with 22 counts of first-degree cruelty, said he killed the defenseless creatures because he was 'angry at the world'.

The 48-year-old was arrested after police received an anonymous tip as they investigated reports of dead kittens found near his Athens home.

'Golden told investigators he had a cat room where he would throw the kittens against the floor to break their necks, stomp on them or wring their necks.'

When police searched his home, opposite an elementary school, they found blood spatters on the walls and floors and the bodies of five kittens in the garden, according to AL.com.

Two kittens named Melvin and Mia, and two dogs were found alive in the house. Lieutenant Chris Slaton said Golden claimed to have cared for the dogs.

A family who believe they may have unwittingly sold two kittens to Golden claimed he was in the process of buying another one, named Tigerlily, from them.

The family claim they met Golden after placing an ad on Craigslist to find homes for their kittens.

'As soon as they showed the picture I said "That's the man, that's him",' one of the women, who has not been named told Whnt.

'He seemed real nice and talkative and he gave me some updates a couple of days later on how they were doing, what he'd named them,' she said.

Golden, who was initially held for a mental health evaluation, allegedly began his kitten killing spree in July.

He is currently being held in Limestone County Jail, where bail has been set at $22,000.

If convicted, Golden could face a year in jail for each of the 22 charges made against him.


Police search for man handing out fliers at university, seeking to recruit 13 spiritually alive white women for his Fourth Reich 'Nymph Squad'

Translation : a rapist



A Hitler-loving sex cult leader spotted handing out fliers to recruit white females to join his ‘Nymph Squad Commune’, is today wanted by Ithaca police chiefs.

The man approached women at Cornell University Campus in New field, New York, handing out fliers in his bid to find 13 ‘spiritually alive, white, European, Caucasian’ partners to join his private cult.

Describing himself as ‘Hitler Hayes’, a ‘full blown dictator’ and ‘sharp end cult leader’, Stevie Rays details a list of the vital statistics he is seeking in his fellow cult members.

He says he is looking for ‘blue eyed, green eyed girls to be my life partners and join my private spiritually alive commune’.

‘My girls MUST come to Chicago to meet me in real life, YOUR COMMUNE LEADER to join me and discuss these issues,’ he says.

‘My girls MUST have 20/20 naturally perfect vision, no glasses or contacts, perfect teeth is also preferred. Blonde, red or brown hair is preferred.

‘My girls must want to have many of my children. My bloodlines go back to the year 1760 in America of the German variety and the year 300 of the Bohemian variety.

‘Overall I like Putin and Hitler’s system. I want to move to Russia or Europe in the future 33 years and live off the grid in the backwoods.

‘My girls must enjoy creating outsider music and art, must play instruments, must love cooking, cleaning, hunting, fishing, chores and gardening.

‘They must love spiritually alive white on white sex. Let’s keep it simple.’

Hitler-loving: Cult leader Stevie Rays lists the must-have attributes he is looking for in his future recruits, including enjoying cooking, chores, gardening, 20/20 vision and blonde, red or brown hair

But while conforming to Mr Rays’ long list of must-have attributes, he adds any girl wanting to join his Nymph Squad Commune, must share his disdain for all drugs, junkies, smoking, tattoos, piercings and body degradation.

He proclaims his hatred for ‘race-mixing, aka having sex with anyone that is not white, European or caucasian’ as well as domesticated animals, humans or pets, shopping in malls, burning candles, gadgets, most technology and computers and ‘texting like robots because robots text and humans do not’.

Launching a tirade on religion Mr Rays adds: ‘They are sh*t and all control mechanisms to keep people slaves and spiritually dead in this spiritually dead, satanic, trauma based, mind control, death cult that is called the USA.’

Ithaca Police Department and the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Department said they have received multiple complaints about the man.

He is described as being around 6ft, white with short, brown hair. He was seen driving a late 90’s vehicle described as being either a green Chevrolet Lumina or a Monte Carlo.

A message on Tompkins County Sheriff Office’s Facebook page states: ‘On September 30, the Sheriff’s Department received a call regarding a suspicious person handing out fliers in Newfield.

'Additionally, the Ithaca Police Department has also received complaints on this individual.’

In a further rant on his website, Mr Rays, goes on to describe his cult as an ‘elitest organisation, but unlike all other elitest organisations on earth we are not soul-less’.

He says: ‘We are different and something new, because ALL the other elitest organisations on earth are elitest just like us, but they are soul-less. We are soul-ful.

‘That’s how NSC differs from every other elitest organisation on earth. If you are hardcore elitest to the bone, but have soul, join us.’


Leigh Ledare Takes Photos Of His Own Mother Tina Having Sex

Is anything sacred to them?

To most people, just the idea of witnessing your mother in the throes of passion is enough to make you spontaneously gag or want to scrub your eyeballs in bleach.

Leigh Ledare, on the other hand, has decided to embrace the most extreme of mother-son bonds, embracing a relationship that would leave Sigmund Freud rubbing his hands with glee.

Bedecked with a 60s-esque 'tasche that puts Magnum P.I. to shame, Ledare takes pictures of his mother, Tina, posing naked and having sex with other young men – all in the name of art, of course.

Leigh Ledare's mother, Tina

Some of the titles of his series, entitled Pretend You're Actually Alive, include the delicately termed 'Mom Spread with Lamp' and 'Mom Fucking in Mirror' – and they are not for the easily offended, or for those who want to hold onto their breakfast.

So, what inspires a man to take photos of his mum having sex? Ledare says his work was fuelled by some, arguably oedipal, desires to document the "extremely open and intimate relationship" he has with his mother.

And does he ever get turned on when taking the photographs? "I don't know what to say" he ambiguously responds, speaking to the Guardian.

In a teenage diary entry, he names his mum alongside models and film stars in a list of "girls I wanted to do".

"I think already in the background there were some foggy boundary issues. What people talk about as being Oedipal – there's a flirtation with that, but the boundaries were never actually crossed," he said.

His decision to showcase his mother, he says, started when he returned home one Christmas and his mum greeted him in the most provocative fashion.

"I arrived home not having seen her for a year and a half," he recalls. "She knew I was coming and opened the door naked."

leigh

When Ledare walked in to the house and past his mother's bedroom, "a young man, almost exactly my age, was sprawled out naked. He rolled over to see me, saying hello, before rolling back over and returning to sleep."

Ledare interpreted this welcome as "her way of announcing to me what she was up to, at this period in her life – almost as though to say, 'Take it or leave it.' I had a camera and began making photos of her then. She was the catalyst."

Extracts from the series are now set to feature in a group show – Home Truths: Photography, Motherhood and Identity – at the Photographers' Gallery in London.

Vietnam's legendary General Vo Nguyen Giap dies

RIP


Vo Nguyen Giap, the brilliant and ruthless self-taught general who drove the French out of Vietnam to free it from colonial rule and later forced the U.S. to abandon its intervention against communist forces, has died. At age 102, he was the last of Vietnam's old-guard revolutionaries.

Giap died Friday evening in a military hospital in the capital of Hanoi, where he had spent close to four years growing weaker and suffering from long illnesses, a government official and a source close to Giap said. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because his death had not been formally announced.


The general was a national hero whose legacy was second only to that of his mentor, founding president Ho Chi Minh, who led the country to independence.

Called the "Red Napoleon," he stood out as the leader of a ragtag army of guerrillas who wore sandals made of car tires and lugged their artillery piece by piece over mountains to encircle and crush the French army at Dien Bien Phu in 1954. The unlikely victory, which is still studied at military schools, not only led to Vietnam's independence but also hastened the collapse of colonialism across Indochina and beyond.

Giap went on to defeat the U.S.-backed South Vietnam government in April 1975, reuniting a country that had been split into communist and noncommunist states. He regularly accepted heavy combat losses to achieve his goals.

"No other wars for national liberation were as fierce or caused as many losses as this war," Giap told The Associated Press in 2005 in one of his last known interviews with foreign media, on the eve of the 30th anniversary of the fall of Saigon, the former South Vietnamese capital.

"But we still fought because, for Vietnam, nothing is more precious than independence and freedom," he said, repeating a famous quote by Ho.


Giap remained sharp and well versed in politics and current events until he was hospitalized. Well into his 90s, he entertained world leaders, who posed for photographs and received autographed copies of his books while visiting the general's shady colonial-style home in Hanoi.

Although he was widely revered in Vietnam, Giap was the nemesis of millions of South Vietnamese who fought alongside U.S. troops and fled their homeland after the war, including the many staunchly anti-communist refugees who settled in the United States.

Born Aug. 25, 1911, in central Vietnam's Quang Binh province, Giap became active in politics in the 1920s and worked as a journalist before joining the Indochinese Communist Party. He was jailed briefly in 1930 for leading anti-French protests and later earned a law degree from Hanoi University.


He fled French police in 1940 and met Ho in southwestern China before returning to rural northern Vietnam to recruit guerrillas for the Viet Minh, a forerunner to the southern insurgency later known as the Viet Cong.

During his time abroad, his wife was arrested by the French and died in prison. He later remarried and had five children.

In 1944, Ho called on Giap to organize and lead guerrilla forces against Japanese invaders during World War II. After Japan surrendered to Allied forces the following year, the Viet Minh continued their fight for independence from France.

Giap was known for having a fiery temper and being a merciless strategist as well as for being a bit of a dandy: Old photos show him reviewing his troops in a white suit and snappy tie, in sharp contrast to Ho, clad in shorts and sandals.

Giap received no formal military training, joking that he attended the military academy "of the bush."

At Dien Bien Phu, his Viet Minh army surprised elite French forces by surrounding them. Digging miles of trenches, the Vietnamese dragged heavy artillery over steep mountains and slowly closed in during the bloody, 56-day battle, which ended with French surrender on May 7, 1954.

"If a nation is determined to stand up, it is very strong," Giap told foreign journalists in 2004 before the battle's 50th anniversary. "We are very proud that Vietnam was the first colony that could stand up and gain independence on its own."


It was the final act that led to French withdrawal and the Geneva Accords, which partitioned Vietnam into North and South in 1956. It paved the way for war against Saigon and its U.S. sponsors less than a decade later.

The general drew on his Dien Bien Phu experience to create the Ho Chi Minh Trail, a clandestine jungle network that snaked through neighboring — and ostensibly neutral — Laos and Cambodia to supply his troops fighting on southern battlefields.

Against U.S. forces with their sophisticated weapons and B-52 bombers, Giap's forces again prevailed. But more than a million of his troops perished in what is known in Vietnam as the American War.

"We had to use the small against the big — backward weapons to defeat modern weapons," Giap said. "At the end, it was the human factor that determined the victory."

Historian Stanley Karnow, who interviewed Giap in Hanoi in 1990, quoted him as saying, "We were not strong enough to drive out a half million American troops, but that wasn't our aim. Our intention was to break the will of the American government to continue the war."

Giap had been largely credited with devising the 1968 Tet Offensive, a series of surprise attacks on U.S. strongholds in the South by Viet Cong and North Vietnamese forces that came during Lunar New Year celebrations. Newer research, however, suggests that Giap had been against the attacks, and his family has confirmed that he was out of the country when they began.

The Tet Offensive shook the United States' confidence, fueled anti-war sentiment and prompted U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson to announce that he would not seek re-election. But it took another seven years for the war to be won.


On April 30, 1975, communist forces marched through Saigon with tanks, bulldozing the gates of what was then known as Independence Palace.

"With the victory of April 30, slaves became free men," Giap said. "It was an unbelievable story."

It came at a price for all sides: the deaths of as many as 3 million communists and civilians, an estimated 250,000 South Vietnamese troops and 58,000 Americans.

Throughout most of the war years, Giap served as defense minister, armed-forces commander and a senior member of Vietnam's ruling Communist Party, but he was slowly elbowed from the center of power after Ho's death in 1969. The glory for victory in 1975 went not to Giap but to Gen. Van Tien Dung, chief of the general staff.

Giap lost the defense portfolio in 1979 and was dropped from the all-powerful Politburo three years later. He stepped down from his last post, as deputy prime minister, in 1991.


But despite losing favor with the government, the thin, white-haired man became even more beloved by the Vietnamese people as he continued to speak out in his old age. He retired in Hanoi as a national treasure, writing his memoirs and attending national events — always wearing green or eggshell-colored military uniforms with gold stars across the shoulders.

He held press conferences, reading from handwritten notes and sometimes answering questions in French, to commemorate war anniversaries. He invited foreign journalists to his home for meetings with high-profile visitors and often greeted a longtime American female AP correspondent in Hanoi with kisses on both cheeks.

He kept up with world news and offered a piece of advice in 2004 for Americans fighting in Iraq.

"Any forces that wish to impose their will on other nations will certainly face failure," he told reporters.


Giap received a parade of foreign dignitaries, including friend and fellow communist revolutionary Fidel Castro of Cuba. In 2003 the pair sat in Giap's home, chatting and laughing beneath a portrait of former Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin.

One of the general's former nemeses, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert McNamara, visited in 1995. He asked about a disputed chapter of the Vietnam War, the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident, in which two U.S. Navy destroyers were purportedly fired upon by North Vietnamese boats. It's the event that gave the U.S. Congress justification for escalating the war; later, many questioned whether the attack actually occurred. During his visit, McNamara asked Giap what happened that night.

"Absolutely nothing," Giap said.


At age 97, Giap took a high-profile role in a debate over the proposed expansion of a bauxite mine that he said posed environmental and security risks, in part because it was to be operated by a Chinese company in Vietnam's restive Central Highlands. He also protested the demolition of Hanoi's historic parliament house, Ba Dinh Hall. Both projects, however, went ahead as planned.

Giap celebrated his 100th birthday in 2011. He was too weak and ill to speak, but he signed a card thanking his "comrades" for their outpouring of well wishes. And even then, he continued to be briefed every few days about international and national events, said Col. Nguyen Huyen, Giap's personal secretary for 35 years.

Late in life, Giap encouraged warmer relations between Vietnam and the United States, which re-established ties in 1995 and have become close trading partners. Vietnam has recently looked to the U.S. military as a way to balance China's growing power in the disputed South China Sea.

"We can put the past behind," Giap said in 2000. "But we cannot completely forget it."


An Interview With The Woman Who Brushed Her Teeth With Feces To Impress Hunter Moore

Possibly the most disgusting story ever. The video will NOT be posted.

An Interview With The Woman Who Ate Her Own Feces To Impress Hunter Moore

Some 19-year-old girl recently videoed herself using a pink princess toothbrush to brush her teeth with her own shit and piss, just because she wanted to attract the attention of Hunter Moore — cunt and founder of “revenge porn” website, IsAnyoneUp?

The video seemed to do the job and within five minutes it was all over the Internet and Moore was milking the attention faster than my housemate milks our pregnant cat. Her Twitter account went from practically zero followers to over a thousand in a few days and her further uploading of nauseating photos and videos proved that she doesn’t feel like a minger for it. In fact she seems pretty proud of herself and even includes “#girlwhoateshit” in her bio. Oh, CUTE!

Since Brittany’s now one of those f-list, non-deserving celebrities, I caught up with her to grill her on her devotion to Hunter Moore, her level of respect for women and whether or not she has threadworms coming out of her ass yet before anyone else did.

Hi Brittany. Why did you brush your teeth with your own shit?

It was to win an iPhone from Hunter Moore. He said that he would give it away to the person that did the sickest thing and although I already have an iPhone, it was the need to get his attention.

All day you see these girls sending him photos of their breasts or doing crazy things and every girl wants to be the one that one-ups the others. So I thought back to the girl that allegedly licked her own tampon and wondered how I could one-up that. I was like, “I could do something disgusting. I really, really could.” I knew he would be really flattered that somebody would do something so disgusting just to get his attention.

Did you win the iPhone in the end?

Yes, I did.

Did he sign it?

No he didn’t but he joked about putting poop in the box and I was like, “Please don’t do that.”

An Interview With The Woman Who Ate Her Own Feces To Impress Hunter Moore

Ew. Do you have worms coming out of your ass now?

No, because I really sanitized afterwards and I didn’t swallow anything. At least that’s what I tell myself.

That’s good. Is this the first ‘celebrity’ that you’ve been infatuated with?

I have always had those crushes on celebrities but I think with Hunter, the fact that he is not yet unreachable made it so much more because with a celebrity it’s like, “Oh yeah right, I’ll probably never talk to them,” but with Hunter he’s still in that stage of his early fame that he still talks to his fans so it’s sort of like, “I’m going to get your attention right now before you’re huge and then you’ll always remember me,” kind of thing.

Do your friends and family know what you’ve done?

Yeah. A lot of people that I thought were my friends saw it and were very disgusted. When I told my parents they actually thought it was funny. They were like, “Oh my gosh. Good for you but also be careful,” kind of thing but they actually thought it was funny. My mom is a drill sergeant and she wouldn’t usually think something like this was funny at all but she was actually encouraging me to do more videos.

Weird. Do you live with your parents?

No, I live with my fiancé.

You have a fiancé?! What does he think of this?

When I told him what I was going to do he thought I was kidding, but when the video blew up on the internet he thought it was hilarious. He’s also a fan of Hunter and submits photos of himself to his male photo contests.

Does your fiancé get jealous?

I think there’s this sex appeal about Hunter Moore that’s like, every girl wants to settle down with a good guy but they want to have an affair with a bad guy, and I think that’s the persona that Hunter puts off. He’s a troublemaker and a bad boy and that’s what is so appealing about him. My fiancé gets a little jealous but he tries to laugh it off and roll his eyes at me as long as I don’t take it too far, you know?

If putting your own shit in your mouth isn’t too far, what is?

Well the other day Hunter asked me if I would fly to LA to do a podcast with him. He uploads podcasts of him and his friends talking about ridiculous things, so he just wanted me to go there to talk about eating poop and to do it again live. I said yes but asked if I could bring a friend and he was like, “No, you should come alone — don’t worry I won’t rape you,” which was a joke but I think it was in the back of everybody’s mind that I might have an affair with him. I think the thought of me going to see him by myself was a little bit too much for my fiancé.

So Hunter was pretty impressed by your shit-eating?

Well I emailed him the video and within three minutes he tweeted like, “Oh my gosh guys, this girl just sent me a video of her brushing her teeth with poo,” and it just blew up within five minutes — I really didn’t think it would get so big.

There are also photos of you licking a used sanitary towel on your Twitter account. Do you have some kind of weird fetish?

I think I do. I think I’m part of that 1% of people that really gets off on that kind of stuff and it’s something I want people to feel they don’t have to be ashamed of. You can still live your life and be a normal human. We all have this need and this fetish to be disgusting and that’s exciting.

Are you proud of what you’ve done?

I am proud of what I did. I’ve gotten emails from people telling me how I’ve saved their life or impacted them in some way because I took the bullying I received from the video and just laughed it off and didn’t play the victim. I hope to continue to make people feel like you can be crazy, like you can be yourself. I want to prove that to get someone’s attention you don’t have to be nude and you don’t have to show off your body parts but that you can be crazy and you can take the hate that people give. I mean, people told me to kill myself and that I deserve to die but I laugh at that and kill the bullies with kindness. I laugh at people as they laugh at me.

Hunter Moore has recently asked his fans, aka “children”, what they want to see you do next. Don’t you feel as if he’s exploiting you? After all, he did tell us in an interview, and I quote, “All I really do is take advantage of them; it’s just them being fucking retarded.”

I definitely know that he is. I know that I’m helping him as much as he’s helping me. He is exploiting it and using it to show off what somebody would do for him, but at the same time I love him so much that I’m willing to help his career and be the butt of the joke. However I’m excited to hear what people would like me to do next. I’m also very frightened but I hope to continue with this — I didn’t want it to just be a one-time thing. I want to keep going. I want to be infamous for showing who I am and for giving Hunter Moore that attention so that he always remembers me as the girl that would do something so profound just to talk to him.

So you’ve licked your period blood, eaten someone else’s sick and put your own feces and urine in your mouth. What’s next?

I’ve been waiting to hear what his children want to see because it obviously really depends on them. They’re not going to watch me do something that somebody else has done. I’m sure it’s going to have something to do with more poop to show the skeptical people that it really is real. You know, something up-close and personal so that they know for sure, without a doubt, that I really put human feces in my mouth.

An Interview With Woman Who Ate Her Own Feces To Impress Hunter Moore

Would you put Hunter’s shit in your mouth?

To be completely honest with you, without hesitation.

I feel like what you’re doing makes us girls seem stupid and desperate for male attention, and I don’t like that.

There’s always going to be people that feel that way but at the same time, I feel like there are a number of women that do what I’m doing on a regular basis. There’s always people who think they’re crazy and are scared to be themselves and they might like what I’ve done because I wasn’t afraid to do it. I feel like girls will look at my videos and be like, “Not only can I show my boobs or my ass but I can also take it to the next level to get a guy’s attention, because this girl ate poop for someone and what I do isn’t going to be as bad as that.”

Exactly — stupid and desperate. Would you call yourself a feminist?

Definitely. Like I said, my mom has always been a drill sergeant in the military and my sister, who is only ten months older than me, is a lesbian. I could talk about women and our rights all day long so yeah, I would call myself an opinionated, loud-mouthed feminist. TC mark

Stupid White Inventions : Sex dolls

We're back!

A photographer has captured an eerie series of images depicting the factory production of life-size silicone sex dolls.

Zackary Canepari's photo project, Love Machines, shows the Real Dolls' scarily lifelike faces and bodies in various states of production inside a San Marcos, California factory called Abyss Creations.

Each of the Real Dolls, which cost around $7,000, are customized to suit customers' fantasies.

In conjunction with his revealing photo project, Mr Canepari and fellow filmmaker Drea Cooper delved into the mind of Matt McMullen, the sculptor in charge of creating these 'women'.

A video interview with Mr McMullen shows him at work in the factory, as he explains how he ended up in his chosen career path.

'I think artists as a whole have this sort of weird thing where you're just driven to do something,' he says.

'I was always driven to sculpt females, and it just evolved. This was. . .the logical progression of what I wanted to do with my artistic abilities and my desire to create.'

While the sculptor has made a living creating the life-size dolls, it wasn't a hobby that was always seen as welcome in his family.

Made to order: Another behind-the-scenes photo shows several doll bodies dangling alongside each other, with various breast sizes, body shapes and 'skin' colors

'I've always been sort of a recluse,' he says in the video, as he sculpts a pair of realistic looking breasts.

'So I spent a lot of the time in the garage by myself.. . . I would [show my family] what I was doing, and they all thought I was weird,' he adds.

Despite his family's disapproval, Mr McMullen embarked on his first project, which he intended to be 'a really cool mannequin for display'.

He says he wanted this doll to be 'stepping outside the bonds of your traditional mannequin which tends to be very supermodel-esque. I wanted to do something with some sexy curves.'

In one of Mr Canepari's more ominous images from inside the factory, several doll bodies dangle alongside each other, with various breast sizes, body shapes and 'skin' colors.

When Mr McMullen created early prototypes and shared them online, he received a flurry of people asking if the dolls were 'anatomically correct', and if so, if they could be ordered.

'I wanted to step outside the bonds of traditional mannequins, which tend to be very supermodel-esque'

'I realized early on that this was probably the direction that this was going to go,' he admits. 'And I just went with it.'

For the next batch of mannequins, he added in 'obvious parts'.

'And there you go, the first Real Doll was born,' he explains.

Mr Canepari's somewhat macabre images from the factory show faceless dolls hanging nude from the ceiling.

'This is not something you just kick under the bed. It becomes a personality, a presence in the home'

Despite the bizarre nature of his work, Mr McMullen makes a point of not judging those who purchase his dolls, no matter what their lifestyle choices are.

In the video, he recalls one customer who lived in the middle of nowhere in Alaska, and 'had no companionship whatsoever.

'They had to bring this doll out in this large, coffin-like box,' he says. 'But he loved it. He said it really took away the edge off of his loneliness and being alone out there.'

To each their own: Despite the bizarre nature of his work, Mr McMullen makes a point of not judging those who purchase his dolls, no matter what their lifestyle choices are

Indeed, he claims that Real Dolls are not just sex toys. 'It's way more than that,' he says.

'Number one, not everybody has the degree of care and respect that it takes to actually own one of these dolls. This is not something that you just kick under your bed,' he explains.

'They invest months and months into the planning of what the doll is going to look like, they give her a name, they'll set up a little closet or space to store the doll, and it becomes a personality. It becomes a presence in their home.

'And I'm not going to judge, nor do I think anyone else should judge them for that.'


Woman Jailed After Stealing $5,000 From Boyfriend, Hiding Loot Inside Her Rectum

Hope that dirty money wasn't in pennies....


Bulls Gap, Tenn. - Christie Black, a 43-year-old Tennessee woman, has been charged after she allegedly stole $5,000 from her boyfriend, hid the money inside her rectum, then required medical attention to have the money removed.


According to police, Black's boyfriend "set a trap" for her after suspecting that she had been stealing from him.

The alleged trap reportedly involved placing $5,000 cash and prescription medication into a medicine bag that was then left on a Foosball table for the night.

The boyfriend went on to say that he awoke early the next morning to discover the pills and cash missing from the bag. When he confronted Black over the missing items, she suddenly became sick and vomited up the pills which were still secured in saran wrap.

When the boyfriend asked Black about the cash, she allegedly admitted to placing the money inside her rectum. Black later told officers that she stole the drugs and cash because she knew her boyfriend was about to kick her out of his home and felt she needed the money for a place to live.

When the boyfriend asked for his money back, Black tried unsuccessfully to retrieve the wad of cash with a pair of tongs and a toilet brush.

At some point during Black's foraging for cash, it became apparent that she was bleeding heavily from the anus and required medical care. She was transported to a local hospital where doctors were successful in removing the loot.


Black remains hospitalized but has been charged with a single count of theft of property over $500.

Women discovered living with rotting carcasses of more than 80 dead animals including deer, chickens and horses

Not many branches in this family tree....

A mother and her two daughters were arrested after they were found living with more than 80 dead animals which included dogs, cats, birds, ferrets and even baby deer.

Rebecca Keith, 58, and her daughters, Amanda Keith, 33, and Sara Keith, 31, of Laurens, South Carolina, were arrested at the home they were renting after police made the gruesome discovery on Thursday.

Some of the animals had been dead since October. They were found wrapped in plastic in the refrigerator, freezer, sink and other areas of the home.

Several dogs were found running around on the property, and a pair of horses were found in poor condition and transported to a local rescue farm.

The three were charged with ill treatment of animals and failure to bury animals properly.

The sickening scene was only discovered when the Keiths stopped paying their rent and police were serving them with an eviction notice.

Owner of the house Jason English accompanied them and when they smelled a foul odor they entered the home.

Jason told WSPA that there were feces all over the floor, flies and maggots all over the fridge and freezer, a cat's carcass in the home and other carcasses outside in the yard. 

He said he is still having nightmares about what he found and is responsible for the cleanup.

He told WYFF4: 'When we came to clean out the kitchen, there was a dead bird and it was half rotten. Inside the freezer, unwrapped, unprotected laying next to their own food were ducks, a baby deer, hatchlings - cups with dozens of baby chickens in it - inside the room they had ferrets.'

When the TV station spoke to the Keiths about why they kept the dead animals in the home, they said they were like family and did not want to say goodbye to them.

Decay: There were maggots and flies buzzing all around the filthy kitchen which also had food sitting around that the family would eat

'I guess you could say they're like family,' Amanda Keith said. 'We didn't want to leave them behind. We've already had to leave so many behind.

'Every time we moved, we thought we'd stay and we could bury them and certain ones we thought we could cremate. It's like one thing led to another and we never could.'

They claimed the local vet told them it was OK to keep animals in the freezer.

This is not the first time the family have been cited for animal cruelty. In 2006 investigators seized dozens of dogs from their home after it caught fire and burned down.
