Craigslist gunman who shot a man in the face sentenced


Gunman in Craigslist case to do 14 years:

A year and a half ago I posted about a craigslist robbery in Trotwood, Ohio. In that robbery the victim was literally shot in the face, through his jaw if memory serves me correctly. Thankfully the victim survived.

At that time there wasn’t a lot of details that was until now. Last week the gunman, Keron Simpson, was sentenced to 14 years for the robbery and the shooting. That’s in addition to his 33 to life sentence for another robbery and a fatal shooting.

The victim got the opportunity to address Simpson at the sentencing and took full advantage of it…

That victim, Chris Voudris, was in the Montgomery County Common Pleas courtroom during the sentencing hearing on Wednesday and asked Simpson to “look me in the eye.” He told Simpson that “soon you will be nothing to society but a number” the rest of his life, an allusion to his future as a prison inmate.

In case you needed another reason not to do business on craigslist this should be it.

Man shot in face during craigslist robbery

Craigslist robbery victim recovering from bullet in jaw:

You know I’ve been spending so much time on the human trafficking aspect of craigslist I guess I should remind you of some of the other dangerous aspects of craigslist, such as armed robbery or getting shot in the face.

That’s exactly what happened to one man from Trotwood, Ohio who was selling a dirt bike on craigslist. The victim and woman met two men when one of the men shot the seller in the jaw and ran off with the dirt bike. Luckily the victim’s injuries are non-life threatening.

Police in the area say there have been a rash crimes related to dirt bikes, motorcycles and ATVs that are craigslist related.

Or you can keep using craigslist, your call.

Man selling motorcycle on craigslist shot and killed

POLICE: Thursday murder involved botched Craigslist motorcycle sale:

Your latest craigslist killer that isn’t Philip Markoff is allegedly 26-year-old Brandon Kent. He is accused in the shooting death of 26-year-old Thai Lam in Savannah, Georgia.

Lam was selling his motorcycle on craigslist and friends say he was meeting someone to sell it at the time he was shot. Police say that Kent was leaving on Lam’s bike just as they arrived. Police chased him to an apartment complex and spotted him trying to leave in an SUV.

He’s pleaded not guilty and held without bond.

But you won’t see this story either in the mainstream media since it happened in the south. Nope, no craigslist killings from the South or Midwest. Just from Boston and New York.

From the ‘Hey y’all watch this’ Department comes this story from Arkansas.

One man is dead and another is hospitalized and facing criminal charges after a motorcycle stunt went wrong. The driver was going at speeds of up to 120mph when he lost control of the bike which struck and killed his friend. His friend was videotaping the stunt for YouTube.

YouTube, the short bus of the internet.
