19-year-old David Sparre of Jacksonville, Florida is just one in a series (collect the whole set) of alleged ‘craigslist killers’. He’s accused in the July 12th stabbing murder of 21-year-old Tiara Pool. The pair met through craigslist’s personals. I originally posted about the murder here and here.
Still no motive in the brutal murder of the mother of two however prosecutors say they are seeking the death penalty.
One of these days I’ll take the 15 minutes to number all the craigslist killers that I know about.
20-year-old Psalmai Thompson was arrested for allegedly leaving three kids in a hot car while visiting her penis at the Orange County Jail in Florida.
She told police that ‘a friend’ was supposed to be watching the kids. She allegedly gave the police two phone numbers for her ‘friend’ both of which turned out to be false.
The fire department measured the hottest part of the inside of the car at 125F/52C. Luckily the kids, ages 5, 3, and two months were relatively unharmed.
I know that visiting hours at county are few and far between but as the old adage that we use here at (p)BB goes if you can’t get someone to watch the kids you have no business going out. Especially to see your criminal boyfriend.
I received the following e-mail from a reader who wants to know what they can do about some kids that are wreaking havoc and the parents don’t care.
So, I live in this quite apartment complex except for these two kids who seems to be playing by their own rules. They play in the dumpster and play inside then parking lot with no parents near by. They used to kick balls at people’s cars and play hide and seek under cars. Throw stuff at the building, throw stuff in people’s laundry. It can go on and on but yet management seems to be unable to control them. HELP! Parents are lazy and fat. Watching their kids isn’t on their priority list. I can go on and on. Not to mention they were trying to set a fire underneath pine trees. Can I somehow resolve this problem? Would the local police really be of any help?
So Breeder Readers what can they do?

36-year-old Anthony Lozano of Hanford, California may have a wee bit of a jealously problem. He’s been arrested for allegedly torturing his girlfriend for four days all because she conversed with a male friend on Facebook.
For four days Lozano is said to have bound her and beat her and choked her with ropes and towels because he thought that she was being unfaithful to her. Did I forget to mention that two children were at the home while all this was going on? Nice guy.
I still don’t get the whole jealousy thing. I mean I have more female Facebook friends then my wife. She has more male Facebook friends than me. Neither of us really give a rat’s ass. Jealousy is unproductive. If you’re significant other is really cheating on you dump them and forget them. This way you won’t end up in jail.
In his latest blog post craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster responds to CNN’s Amber Lyon’s alleged request for an interview.
He accuses Ms. Lyon of engaging in tabloid journalism by ambushing craigslist founder Craig Newmark with ads for prostitution on the website that bears his name. I say good on her. At least she’s out there doing real reporting instead of just regurgitating whatever the AP posts. This is was journalism is supposed to be like. How else do you expect the media to get any truth out of either one of you when both of you basically only speak through your mouthpiece Susan MacTavish Best.
And again Jimmy B is trying to deflect the true story here which is the fact that child prostitution and human trafficking is still taking place on the website that you run and Craig is the face of.
It seems they’re still not parting with that $30 Million in sex money anytime soon.
In his latest blog post Craigslist founder Craig Newmark finally gets around to making excuses as to why he had no real answer when CNN’s Amber Lyon confronted him about human trafficking on craigslist.
He blames it on the notion that he has borderline Asperger’s Syndrome which is also called borderline Autism in some circles. so basically he’s saying that he’s a borderline-borderline Autistic. That’s a bunch of crap. While he may be socially inept he is far from stupid. Anyone who would have seen the ad that Ms. Lyon presented would have known that it was for prostitution which is still an illegal activity. Any normal person that was running a classifieds site who really didn’t want prostitution on their site would have said something realistic like “My God that’s horrible. I’ll look into it right away”. Instead Craig just asks if the ad has been reported. Um, last time I checked adult services ads could not be flagged. Just checked again, nope, you can’t flag them.
He then goes and claims that he is no longer in charge of craigslist which is true. He mentions that Jim Buckmaster has been in charge for the last 10 years. Which ironically is roughly about the same time that the original erotic services section first appeared on craigslist.
Then he goes on about how he is allegedly sensitive to the plight of those being trafficked but then mentions about how socially conscious he is by supporting veterans, net neutrality and transparency in government. Yet he still does not lift a finger to do anything real about human trafficking like shutting down the adult services section.
Following his blog post is some comments from the cult of craig that basically kiss his ass. I wondered why there were no opposing comments and then I noticed the following…
Comments are moderated, and will not appear until the author has approved them.
That’s kind of ironic for a number of reasons. The first is that he and Jim won’t moderate craigslist yet they both moderate the comments on their blogs. The second is that for someone who supports net neutrality and transparency in government he’s not very neutral nor transparent on his blog.
Police in Chandler, Arizona arrested Leann and Chance Cracke, nice name, for injuring their 7-month-old son. It seems that Mr. Methe…I mean Cracke was tweaking on meth and was hungry and didn’t want to put the baby on the dirty floor. We’ll get to the floor in a second. So instead of putting the baby down he put him on the bottom shelf of the freezer. I’m guessing that whenever he found some food to put in his meth riddled body he forgot about the baby and closed the freezer door. After a few minutes the Breeders heard the baby crying and got him out. The boy was said to have a bump and a cut from the freezer door. Police were called by the boy’s maternal grandmother.
Now back to the floor. The reason the floor was dirty was because it was covered in c*ckroaches, urine and the pre-requisite feces. No word yet if the feces was dog or human. There was also a rusty razor blade just laying around along with several open containers of tobacco spit.
The Breeders’ 19-month-old daughter was also removed from the house because of burns and bruises found on her.
The Crackes allegedly admitted to smoking meth every day for a month and a half.
I still can’t comprehend why scum that have children would inject this toxic substance into their bodies. You would think with two young children they already weren’t getting enough sleep.
Occasionally you’ll see me use the phrase “Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” which loosely translated is Latin for “Who watches the watchmen?” or “Who guards the guardsmen?” if you want to get literal. This is one of those instances.
Henderson, Nevada police officer Michael Stevens, 34, has been arrested on charged craigslist prostitution after his alleged prostitute of choice dimed him out.
Las Vegas police arrested a woman on prostitution charges which caused her to tell them that Stevens was using her services. She was able to assist LVPD with setting up a sting where Stevens was arrested. The AP says that Stevens tried saying that he was working vice but the local Nevada articles says that he admitted what he was doing was wrong. Stevens is said to have met Robbearts on craigslist.
How can we doing anything to combat human trafficking when it is being supported by allegedly crooked cops. And yes I do realize that cops like Stevens are in the vast majority but one bad apple like Stevens can also tarnish the reputation of entire departments.
Forensic examiners from The Southern Oregon High-Tech Crimes Task Force were inspecting a computer when they discovered explicit MySpace messages sent to a 13-year-old girl. They arrested 36-year-old David Vance Pierce for allegedly sending the messages but he was not the suspect nor was this the crime they were investigating.
The messages from Pierce allegedly offered the 13-year-old girl money for sex.
I’m guessing Pierce didn’t realize that nothing is private on the internet no matter how much you think it is.
23-year-old Travis Allen Davis of New Castle, Indiana is one sick son of a bitch. He pleaded guilty to raping an ex-girlfriend of his in Ohio. He broke into her house armed and handcuffed her and raped her. Apparently that wasn’t enough to keep him behind bars or to keep a gun out of his hands.
Davis is now accused of creating a fake Facebook profile of his rape victim in order to stalk his most recent ex. Using the fake profile he threatened the woman, now living in Pennsylvania, saying that if she didn’t return to Davis he would send a video of them having sex. The woman was unaware that she was being filmed while having sex with Davis.
How the hell does this douchebag keep getting women? He looks like a douchey version of Screech.
Anyway Davis was found outside of the woman’s Pennsylvania home in his car. He was armed with a .45, three magazines filled with bullets and box cutters and had a stolen Pennsylvania plate taped over his Indiana plate.
I wonder if this latest charge will keep him behind bars. You would think that the Ohio courts would have held him until sentencing since he basically admitted he was a rapist.
