Finnish police probe launched

Probe Launched into Kauhajoki Police Actions:

Prosecutors in Finland are launching a probe that will look into whether or not police acted properly in releasing Maati Saari and giving him back his gun.

I’m very unfamiliar with Finnish law so I can’t comment. The only thing I can say that if this happened in the U.S. then in my opinion they would have had probable cause to at least search the house.

I’d appreciate it if a legal expert from either country could weigh in on this.

Fertile craigslist pimp sentenced

Everett man gets 26-year prison term for pimping:

Do you remember Washington state pimp Jerome Todd? He was the one who was pimping out women on craigslist so he could pay child support to 13 Children by 8 different mothers if my memory serves me correct.

Now he’s got 3 more dependents. A judge ordered him to pay $70K to the three women he was pimping out. Plus a pesky 26 years behind bars.

Atlantic City craigslist pimp convicted

Pleasantville man found guilty of prostituting underage teen girls from Allentown, Pa. in Atlantic City:

27-year-old Kevin R. Mayfield of Pleasantville, NJ was convicted yesterday of pimping out minor girls on craigslist in Atlantic City.

Mayfield also took nude pictures of the girls to use on the craigslist ad.

Mayfield’s cohort was 25-year-old Casson L. Coward who pleaded guilty back in 2007 and was sentenced to 10 years for his part.

Again I say who says there’s no victims? Are two underage girls not victims enough for you?

Jenny McCarthy Slams Amanda Peet Over Vaccines



LOS ANGELES — Actress and new mom Amanda Peet referred to parents who choose not to vaccinate their children as “parasites” in a recent interview. But despite her public apology aimed at parents of autistic children who believe that vaccines may have caused the illness, Jenny McCarthy hasn’t forgiven or forgotten.

“She (Peet) has a lot of [nerve] to come forward and be on that side, because there is an angry mob on my side, and I like the fact that I can say she’s completely wrong,” McCarthy (whose 6-year-old son has autism) tells the upcoming issue of Spectrum magazine, which hits stands Wednesday.

If I was Amanda Peet I would not only have not apologized I would have called her ignorant, misinformed, a Luddite, and a fearmonger as well.

Dead kids in a freezer

Renee Bowman

Renee Bowman

Authorities Find Children’s Frozen Corpses:

I couldn’t decide on whether to call her Homey the Clown because of her hair or The Frog because of her neck. So Frog Clown over there is 43-year-old Renee Bowman of Lusby, Maryland.

Police were investigating her home over the weekend because of child abuse complaints.

While police were searching the house they discovered the frozen corpses of two children in her freezer. They’re believed to be the bodies of her adopted daughters. Bowman allegedly admitted that the bodies have been in there since at least February. The girls are believed to be 11 and 9.

There was also a 7-year-old girl in the house who Bowman allegedly beat with a shoe. The girl escaped by jumping out of a window.

The three girls were adopted out of foster care in Washington D.C. I would lay odds that Bowman was collecting checks for the girls after they were gone.

Thanks to Marley, Tony and Daniel for the tip.

Did police prompt Saari to attack

No indication that police action prompted Saari to move up Kauhajoki attack:

Someone is saying, I’m not sure who because the article doesn’t say, that Matti Saari did not attack the school last Monday because the police interrogated him the Friday before. Whoever is saying that is mistaken.

Why else would he attack on that Monday if he wasn’t interrogated the Friday before. It seems obvious that he knew that police were getting close to uncovering his plan so he stepped it up.

My guess was that since he was such a ‘special friend’ of Pekka-Eric Auvinen that he was more than likely waiting for the anniversary of Jokela.

That’s the way the tiny minds of these mutants work.

Reader sends in apartment scam experience

I got the following e-mail from Christa who was looking for an apartment on Craigslist…

I’m 20 years old and this is the first time I began searching for apartments. When I saw an ad that looked too good to be true- I hesitated but gave the guy the benefit of the doubt and emailed him. This was his exact response:

“Hello. We are so much excited. My name is Mcgrath Garrett the owner of the apartment and also want you to know that it was due to my transfer that makes me and my wife and little daughter to leave the apartment and also want to give it out for rent and looking for a responsible person that can take very good care of it while we are not at the state as we are not after the money for the rent but want it to be clean at the time and the person that will rent it to take it as if it were its own. So for now, we are here in West Africa, our new house and put all my worries off concerning the maintenance of the apartment for, since i am not residing there for now. I left behind some Facilities and electonics which include the rent, DVD player, air conditioning, alarm system. The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary cooking utensils, refrigerator-freezer, four-hob and oven, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine, my computer connected with Internet access also the keys and document of the apartment are right here with us in West Africa, and the lease document. Which i can send to you after all necessary agreement has been accepted. Also i will like you to know that the rent charges is not really the issue, hope you are okay with the price of $900 per month including utilities like hydro, water, gas, heat laundry facilities, air condition and so on, but your absolute maintenance of my apartment is most important thing, if you are really interested in renting this apartment get back to me so that i can forward you an application form for you to fill so that i can start all necesary arrangement asap.

Here is the apartment address : (California address)

…. Pls note that you will be viewing the apartment from outside only and 100 % sure that you would love to stay in the place because it is locatedin a very cool, quiet and safe neigbourhood. There was a man who want to rent my apartment his name was Mr Daniel called me about the apartment, i told him that I can’t give him the apartment because he loves smoking, drinking and dont want him to get drunked and damaged my property one day so If you are still interested, no extra fees. I will like you to give me a call at (foreign number) or (other foreign number) on this effect to know how serious you are. I personally will actually come visiting you sometimes during the year as our new tenant. Looking forward to hear from you with all this details so that i can have it in my file in case of issueing the receipt for you and contacting you. Awaiting your reply so that we can discuss on how to get the document and the keys of the apartment to you. “

I soon googled the e-mail and the only response was for a rental fraud website. I want to make sure this story gets posted because it might help a stupid person from making an even more stupid decision of sending money.

Thanks for your time 🙂

Thank you Christa for sending this in. It gives one more fake scammer name to post.

“Don’t know where Giovanni is at”

Father Says He Doesn’t Know Where Lynn Boy Is:

Ernesto Gonzalez was back in court again on Friday trying to get his bail lowered even though he has not assisted police in any way to help find his son Giovanni.

“Don’t know where Giovanni is at,” Gonzalez said.

After that, Gonzalez wouldn’t say anymore.

In court, Gonzalez showed no emotion. Prosecutors told the judge he was the last person to see his son Giovanni.

Thankfully the judge denied his lower bond request and it’s still set at $500K.
