Joshua Elkins

32-year-old Joshua Elkins, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, was recently indicted for allegedly sexually assaulting a then 15-year-old girl from Bergen County, New Jersey, that he met on the video chat site Omegle. Elkins was arrested back in 2013 after making the ten-hour drive from Indiana to New Jersey.

Elkins is also a registered sex offender from a previous conviction of sexual misconduct with a minor.

As I’ve stated previously one of the main problems with Omegle is that all you need to access it is any camera enabled device and an internet connection. That means phones, tablets and computers can all be used to log on to Omegle. To their credit Omegle does report some of the offenders they find to law enforcement but for the most part it’s up to the parents of these kids to make sure they’re not allowing these sexual predators into their lives.

Fiancée of NJ nazi claims she made up assault story

Heath Campbell’s fiancée Bethanie Zito at right

The last we checked in on infamous New Jersey nazi Heath Campbell he was on the run from police in Holland Township, New Jersey for domestic assault charges. Now the story takes a strange yet not unexpected turn. The alleged victim of the assault. Campbell’s fiancee Bethanie Zito is claiming that she made up the story about domestic assault because she was mad at Campbell.

From NJ.com

Zito said the injuries weren’t inflicted by Campbell as she originally claimed. Rather, she says, he left after an argument and she was mad at him so she went to work in a shed. While in there she was throwing things around, and a shelf held up by a few nails fell on her, cutting her face, Zito said.

Right. I bet she’s probably ‘walked into a door’ too. As one of my commenters recently said how does this assclown continue to find women who put up with his shit?

This all may seem somewhat humorous but I don’t find domestic violence funny at all. I watched my mom on more than one occasion call the cops on my abusive father only to tell them later that she wouldn’t press charges. So as much of a joke Campbell is he needs to do some time if the charges against him are true.

Speaking of the charges the Hunterdon Country Prosecutor’s Office’s are not allowing the charges to be dropped. Campbell is still on the run as of this posting and is considered one of Hunterdon’s Most Wanted.

Can a mass shooting happen here?

shotgunshells

My hometown newspaper, The Press of Atlantic City, recently published an article asking the question “Can a mass shooting happen in South Jersey?” No matter the location the answer to that question is always tragically yes. This is almost the equivalent of saying “We didn’t think it could happen here” after a shooting. South Jersey almost had a mass shooting back in 2006 when a plot to attack Winslow Township High School was uncovered.

As I’ve said before I can’t think of a mass shooting in recent history that took place in a major urban area like New York or Philadelphia. There almost always in suburban or rural areas as in small town America. So yes, they can happen here no matter where here is in our country.

New Jersey nazi on the run

Heath Campbell

Heath Campbell

You may remember New Jersey’s Heath Campbell when he made headlines back in 2008 when it was discovered that Campbell and his then-wife Deborah had named their kids after nazi icons. Campbell then had his kids taken away by DYFS on child abuse allegations that may or may not have been related to their unfortunate names. Since that time his then wife has left him and he’s shown up to custody hearings in full nazi regalia.

Now he’s back in the news again and for once it’s not for his choices of baby names. Campbell in on the run from police in Holland Township, New Jersey. He’s wanted on domestic assault charges. I can’t say for certain that this is why he’s being charged but it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if this assclown is a woman-beater.

The Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office named him fugitive of the week last week and there are several places you vsn provide police with information if you have any about Campbell…

Anyone with information as to any fugitive’s whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Sgt. Mike Nugent, Detective Frank Modaffare or Detective Lamont Garnes of The Joint Hunterdon County Fugitive Task Force at 908-788-1129 or the local police department.

Arrest made in September craigslist killing in NJ.

Travis Picou

Travis Picou

Back in September 41-year-old Mamuka Chamiashvili of Brooklyn, New York, was shot and killed in Elizabeth, New Jersey, after responding to a craigslist ad for a Mercedes-Benz SUV.

Back in October 28-year-old Ali Garner and 30-year-old Keon Lewis, both of Elizabeth, were arrested in connection with Mr. Chamiashvili’s murder and recently 36-year-old Travis Picou of Paterson was also arrested. All three are being held on $2 million bond each.

I’ll say it again that using craigslist for any reason is very akin to playing Russian Roulette.

UPDATE 12/14/2015: A fourth suspect, 33-year-old Larry Jones of Newark, has recently been arrested in connection with Mamuka Chamiashvili’s murder.

Why you should care about the NJ man who molested a 12-year-old boy using Kik

Aaron Johnson Jr.

Aaron Johnson Jr.

I’m sorry for posting a clickbait-like headline but I promise you that if I’m doing it there’s some actual information I think you need to know.

Recently 23-year-old Aaron Johnson Jr. of Mays Landing, New Jersey, was arrested for allegedly molesting a 12-year-old boy that he is said to have lured through the smart phone messaging app Kik. He may have also been grooming a 17-year-old boy through Kik as well.

The main reason I think this story is so important is because while it’s not exactly my hometown I did spend a lot of time in Mays Landing growing up. I know the street where Johnson lives and could still take you there to this day. So if you were wondering this can’t happen in your neighborhood, it can. It can happen anywhere no matter if your neighborhood is rich or poor or well-educated or not.

The other reason I found this story to be important is because of what the local police said. While it’s common knowledge to a lot of us it needs to be repeated. Even if a smart phone has no service through a phone company it can still be used for messaging apps over wi-fi. So even if your kids’ phone is discontinued from service they can still use it over wi-fi. Or if a predator were to give them an inactive phone it can still be used over wi-fi. So keep that on mind if you think your kids have an inactive phone it can still be used with a lot of apps.

Things are looking up in Camden

Then again you can only look up from the bottom.

Then again you can only look up from the bottom.

Mark this day down, I was wrong about something. It seems that the disbanding of the Camden. New Jersey police department and replacing them with a county police force has actually been good for the city. Not only has their been a drop in the murder rate in Camden but they’ve dropped off the list of most dangerous cities where they’re usually in the top 3.

While this is good news for the people of Camden it’s still going to take a very long time before businesses and taxpayers move into the city. Not to mention that I have concerns if the other taxpayers of Camden County are helping foot the bill for a police force that is county in name only as they only patrol Camden itself.

Is Bulldozing most of a city a good idea?

Not Detroit.

Not Detroit.

It depends on the city in question.

There are reports coming out of Detroit that the city is looking to bulldoze 22 percent of city property that has been abandoned or blighted. The city is not looking to build on those properties either. They’re hoping that private companies and developers to rebuild, in theory.

So I’m sure you’re asking yourself what this has to do with crime. There’s a city in New Jersey that I think is worse off than Detroit even though they haven’t declared bankruptcy yet, surprisingly. Of course that city is Camden.

With less than half of the properties in Camden paying taxes it does no good to leave these properties dilapidated and as potential arson targets. Instead the taxes that are collected in the city can go towards bolstering its ‘metro’ police force rather than the infrastructure that’s being wasted by these properties.

Camden woman buried alive, covered in lime

Camden woman’s grisly death is detailed in court:

Fatima Perez

Fatima Perez

I’m kind of disgusted with humanity right now, I mean more so than usual.

41-year-old Fatima Perez of Camden, New Jersey was buried alive and covered in lime in a shallow grave and left to die in Monroe Township, New Jersey. She died from asphyxiation since here eyes and mouth were covered in duct tape. While she may have died in Middlesex County this crime has Camden written all over it. The same Camden, New Jersey that constantly competes with places like Detroit and Gary, Indiana, as one of the most dangerous places in the country. The same Camden that disbanded its police force and replaced it with a county police force except Camden is the only place it patrols, yet the state taxpayers foots the bill.

Ms. Perez was on her way to purchase a car. She had $8,000 in her possession. She was able to get a ride from a man who had done landscaping for her before, one 36-year-old Carlos Alicea-Antonetti of Camden. It seems that instead of trying to earn money like that honestly he decided he was just going to take it from Ms. Perez and dispose of her, allegedly. Alicea-Antonetti then picked up a co-worker, 57-year-old Ramon Ortiz. Ortiz claims that when he got in the vehicle Ms. Perez was already bound and gagged. So the pair allegedly took her to Monroe Township which is an hour drive away, dug a shallow grave, threw Ms. Perez in it and then covered her with lime, dirt and leaves, all while she was still bound, gagged and alive. She was reported missing this past Monday and unfortunately she was not found alive. Alicea-Antonetti was said to have been found with $7,000 of the money when the pair were arrested in Cherry Hill on Wednesday.

I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it. Camden is a lost cause. While this story may be shocking to a lot of people it’s not shocking to me that this started in Camden. Inept government, the fact that less than half the city’s properties are tax paying and the fact that the city is basically being propped up by the state financially should signal the death knell for Camden. This could have happened over $800 or even $80.

No one will ever come into Camden to develop it. It’s been tried and it’s failed miserably. The state would be better off relocating whatever decent folk are left in Camden then razing the city and starting over. Otherwise it’s never going to get any better, ever.

New Jersey fat guy wants vaping tax to pay for junkies

chrischristie

I used to like New Jersey governor Chris Christie. I appreciated his pull no punches approach and the way he reached across party lines in order to help his state in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. It seems he just another Jersey politician though. He wants to put a tax on vaping and e-cigs and he wants that tax to pay for the treatment of heroin addicts and pill poppers. Where in any universe does that make sense? How about not taxing it and reaping the benefits of all the people who won’t be treated for smoking related illnesses?

I find this pretty ironic since Christie has publicly stated that he will never allow the legalization of marijuana as long as he’s governor. Yet, he wants to tax something legal and helpful to many ex-smokers in order to help a bunch if junkies. Does he really think the election is going to hinge on the junkie vote? Someone should remind him that vapers do vote.

Has he ever put a tax on Dunkin’ Donuts?
