I originally posted about Vincent Izzo from Big Flats, New York here. Last year he was arrested for luring three underage girls for sex (child rape) through MySpace and Facebook. Well just like any other sex offender it seems that Izzo was up to his old tricks again.
First off Izzo pleaded guilty to the initial charges against him and instead of getting jail time he got probation. When will the system learn that a sex offender can not be rehabilitated or trusted.
Now Izzo is in trouble again this time for making friends with a 17-year-old girl on Facebook and sending her somewhere in the vicinity of 100 sexually explicit text messages. Also like a lot of sex offenders he used an alias, Vincent Cevellione.
Predators like Izzo only know one thing and that’s feeding their twisted desires.
Hopefully this time he’ll get some real jail time and not some enabling ‘probation’.
If you’ve never heard of the Dunbar Village case it’s one of the worst stories I’ve ever posted if not the worst.
Back in 2007 a group of teens pulled a home invasion of a mother and her son in the Dunbar Village housing project in West Palm Beach, Florida. Not satisfied with just robbing them the group not only gang raped the mother but forced her son to have sex with her. Then they threw cleaning products on them in order to try to get rid of any DNA evidence.
Four teens were arrested for the atrocities. Three of them got life sentences. A fourth, Avion Lawson, got 30 years. Lawson got 30 years because he rolled on his homies otherwise he probably would have met the same fate.
Now Lawson is saying that his sentence was unfair because he claims he was forced to rape the woman at gunpoint by the group’s leader, Tommy Poindexter.
Tough shit. The gang rape of a mother where six suspects have never been brought to justice is unfair. The emotional scarring that her son will probably have for the rest of his life is unfair.
Now that I think about it 30 years is unfair. It should have been much more. He knew what he was getting into.
28-year-old Malachai Tramble II of Minneapolis has been charged with prostituting a 17-year-old girl on the Village Voice Media owned backpage.com. He’s also been charged with possession of child porn since he is alleged to have taken explicit pictures of the girl to post on backpage’s ‘adult’ section. Isn’t that some irony there?
A 22-year-old woman who has pleaded guilty to assisting Tramble in turning out the girl said that she worked for Tramble as a prostitute. However she claims that she was raped by Tramble while she was unconscious and he took explicit pictures of her and her social security and state ID cards. She says she was in fear of what Tramble might have done with that information.
Goes against the whole ‘consenting adults’ bullcrap doesn’t it?
VVM and backpage are still scum by the way. They made money off of this 17-year-old girl and have made money on girls that were much younger.
A group of multi-faith clergy known as The Groundswell Movement have taken out a full-page ad in the New York Times (above) pleading Village Voice Media and backpage to stop in the sexual trafficking if women and children.
The letter they sent VVM should have only been the first sentence of the letter.
It is a basic fact of the moral universe that girls and boys should not be sold for sex.
That should be a universal truth whether you’re a person of faith or faithless.
Of course the child trafficking scum at Village Voice Media don’t think so.
Neither government officials nor God’s advocates can dictate such arbitrary control of business or speech.
First off you’ll notice that none of the cowards at VVM had the balls to put their name to their dreck.
Secondly they should be ashamed of wrapping themselves in the fucking First Amendment when what they’re doing is depriving women and children of their basic freedoms.
Let’s boil it down to its basic elements. Backpage and Village Voice Media are accepting money for advertisements where women and children are being forced into sexual slavery. Most people would be appalled at this but not the greedy bastards at VVM. They would probably sell their own daughters on backpage if they thought it would get them another buck.
And the fact that the majority of people in the so-called land of the free turn a blind eye to this makes me sick. Why aren’t more people aware of this? What are you doing about it? Anything? Probably not. So how about getting off your ass and doing something about it? Write your paper. write the politicians, hell even write to Village Voice Media. Do something.
Right now there are more people in slavery in this country than there were during the Civil War. If that doesn’t make you feel like doing something than you’re just as hopeless as Village Voice Media.
I must have missed this one at the time of his arrest but 23-year-old Theodore Briggs, aka ‘PeeJaye’, has pleaded guilty to prostituting a 14-year-old girl on the Village Voice Media owned backpage.com. Do you know why I keep saying the Village Voice Media owned backpage.com? TO make sure that no one forgets who is equally responsible for these girls being turned out.
Briggs will be sentenced in January and he’s looking at 10 to life. As usual I bet it will be closer to ten than it will be to life.
And scum like Briggs will keeping turning out our daughters and sisters on the street as long as Village Voice Media and backpage allow it. All in the name of profit yet they have the nerve to call it free speech.
How come none of the Occupy Wall Street clowns are picketing VVM? They have a CEO and the way he earns his money is a lot more scummier than any bank CEO.
17-year-old Aerial Patterson of Warren, Ohio was a habitual runaway. Her family did everything they could by all accounts to stop her from running away. Unfortunately Aerial was murdered in Charlotte, NC two weekends ago.
Allegedly Aerial was lured to Charlotte by 23-year-old Eddie Doh through Facebook. While in Charlotte police believe that Aerial was killed by Doh and Nicholas Wright in a robbery. Aerial’s mother believes that she was killed by Doh and Wright in order to cover up another crime committed by the pair.
This story defies all my usual warnings about social networks since the family did all they could to keep Aerial safe so this time I guess I have to address the teen’s who may be thinking about running away.
If someone you know on Facebook is trying to get you to run away the chances are great that they wish to do you harm in someway whether it be sexually or physically. There are resources and organizations out there designed to help with someone in your situation. Seek them out first before doing anything rash. You may think what happened to Aerial won’t happen to you but odds are that it will.
The other day I posted a story about a Juggalo who was wanted as a person of interest in the murder of 19-year-old Carina Saunders. Since that time he was ruled out as a person of interest so I removed the story. However I thought I would be doing a great disservice to Carina’s family and friends if I didn’t bring you her story just because the Juggalo was no longer involved.
Carina’s body was found on October 13th in a duffel bag behind a grocery store. She had been decapitated and dismembered. Two men were viewed as persons of interest by Bethany, Oklahoma police but both have since been cleared. No suspect has been named yet and Bethany police are seeking the FBI’s assistance with Carina’s murder.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that Carina’s story reminds me of another crime that I posted about for years and that would be the murder of Jennifer Parks.
In 2005 16-year-old Jennifer was stabbed to death and dismembered by her two neighbors that she thought were friends, Jonathan and James Zarate. They tried disposing her body into the Passaic river in New Jersey but were caught by police. Both are serving life sentences.
I will be continually posting about Carina’s case as details become available and I pray for justice in this case.
15-year-old Catilyn Abercrombie was shot yesterday while eating lunch outside Cape Fear High School in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The bullet struck her in the neck and the bullet is lodged against her spine. She is currently in critical condition. My thoughts and prayers go out to her friends and family.
Two suspects have been arrested in her shooting. The triggerman is said to be an unnamed 15-year-old who allegedly shot Catilyn with a .22 rifle. Also arrested was 18-year-old Ta’von McLaurin for aiding and abetting. Police say the pair were caught on camera going through the halls of the school with the .22 rifle.
Now granted that a .22 is not the largest rifle in the world but it’s still a rifle. How in the hell did no notice these cowards going through the halls of the school with a rifle until after the fact?
Catilyn is not believed to be the target and locals say that there has been a gang problem in the school.
Between gangs, bullying, violence and sex related crimes I think we’ll see the demise of public schools within a generation or two. When a school says they have a gang problem it’s a failure between the school, police and most importantly the parents for allowing this to happen.
No word yet on whether the juvenile will be charged as an adult but by all rights he should be.
I’ll post more as detail’s become available and time allows.
Thanks to my lovely and talented wife Jade for the tip.
UPDATE 10/31/2011: The alleged 15-year-old shooter has been named. He is said to be Charles Underwood Jr. No word yet on if he has been charged as an adult.
I grew up in the Atlantic City area. I also come from a family of successful gamblers. The one thing you learn in that kind of environment is that you never gamble to pay the bills. Apparently no one ever told that to Elizabeth Tato of Sanford, Florida.
Tato was in what the article calls a strip mall casino. If Florida has the same places that North Carolina has calling it a casino is a compliment. These are usually what they call sweepstakes places that have moved into a lot of low rent strip malls. There are no slot machines or gaming tables. Just a bunch of computers playing pre-determined sweepstakes type games.
So Tato was busy being ripped off when the friendly neighborhood repo man towed her car from the parking lot. What the repo man didn’t know is that Tato’s 11-year-old son was inside the car at the time.
As usual when kids are left in cars Tato allegedly claims that she was only in there for 15 minutes while the security guard says that she was in there at least for an hour.
Apparently she had no problem gambling with the welfare of her child.
How’s this for gall? Elisa Baker, aka the Sheen-Cow, who pleaded guilty in the murder of her step-daughter Zahra Baker, is now saying from jail that she didn’t do it. She’s basically saying that she pleaded guilty because she felt that the prosecutors had enough evidence to convict her. Then why the hell didn’t she make a no-contest plea instead?
Some more lies from Bakers is that she claims that Zahra was ‘the light of her eyes’. She claims that Zahra died from a stomach virus and that Adam Baker was the one who dismembered his own daughter’s body. That’s a load of crap. If Zahra died of natural causes they could have just called 911 and an autopsy would have cleared them of any wrong doing. But what do you expect from a pathological liar and cheat?
She also allegedly said that the “man makes the decisions and you don’t argue.” Does anyone believe anything that vomits forth from her gaping maw? The hell she was some timid kept woman following the iron clad directions of her man.
In my opinion Elisa Baker is a liar, a grifter and a master manipulator and now she’s trying to manipulate the media into making her a sympathetic victim. The problem is that no one is buying it.
