I don’t post the links to suspects’ Facebooks anymore. The simple reason is I don’t want to encourage the harassment of their Facebook friends who had nothing to with the crime. I don’t even go looking for them. However after reading the above headline I had to go looking for the Facebook of Perry Hall High School gunman Robert Wayne Gladden Jr. It took me a while but I was able to find it and as I surmised in my previous post Gladden is in fact a mutant. Exhibit A…
On Gladden’s public Facebook page he lists the Columbine cowards Harris and Klebold as ‘Inspirational People’. Gladden is just another loser following in the steps of two cowardly scumbags who are burning in hell. You’ll notice that Gladden is also a fan of Rammstein, supposedly the favorite band of the Columbine douches.
If this loser ever had an original thought in his head it would probably die of loneliness.
15-year-old Robert Wayne Gladden Jr. has been charged as an adult with attempted murder in the Perry Hall High School shooting that took place yesterday. The victim, 17-year-old Daniel Borowy, was shot in the back and as of last report was in critical condition. Isn’t the old adage that only cowards shoot someone in the back? But I digress.
It seems that Gladden is just another cookie cutter shooter. He dyed his long hair black and was considered goth and a loner. I’m not ready to label him a mutant yet but it wouldn’t surprise me. Speaking of cookie cutters the cookie cutter excuse of bullying was thrown into the mix rather quickly when the media asked his father why he may have done it.
A reporter showed up at his family’s home and asked why this might have happened. The boy was bullied, answered his father, according to the Associated Press.
The boy’s lawyer was quick to jump on that too saying that his client brought the gun to school in order to intimidate bullies. His lawyer also adds that he didn’t mean to shoot anyone and the gun went off when one of the school faculty tackled him. If that’s the case then why did he also bring 21 shells with him to school? That’s a lot of intimidation.
However the police say that bullying was not an issue in this shooting. Like most if not all school shootings if I may add.
What about his victim Daniel Borowy? He must have been some badass bully to warrant being shot in the back with a shotgun right? Not so much…
We have been told that Daniel was shot in the back and is now out of surgery. A family representative says Daniel has down syndrome and calls him a shy, athletic young man.
Sounds more like the kid who would have been bullied more than anyone. As usual the shooter is a bigger bully than anyone he may have claimed to have bullied him And a coward of course.
Speaking of bullying I was to point out The Christian Science Monitor article I linked to above but is also here. It does a great job of trying to dispel the bullying myth and also shows how vague the term ‘bullying’ has become.
We’ve written before about how the concept of “bullying” has become so broad, so trendy, so amorphous, that it has all but lost any specific meaning. Over the past months, for instance, we’ve read news of a six-year-old “bully” getting suspended from school for singing popular song lyrics in the lunch line and a 68-year-old bus monitor getting “bullied” by a group of students.
(Neither of which seem to fit the US Department of Health and Human Service’s definition of bullying, which says the act involves aggressive behavior among school-aged children and involves a real or perceived power imbalance.)
It’s hard to argue with logic but unfortunately we’ve become a country of pre-programmed knee-jerk reactionaries. As soon as a school shooting hits the news some ‘journalist’ will try to break the sound barrier getting the bullying meme out there.
Speaking of journalists the CSM article also quotes my favorite journalist Dave Cullen, also author of Columbine. He sums it up very succinctly…
“We all knew what happened there, right?” he wrote about Columbine in a New York Times opinion piece soon after this summer’s mass shooting in Aurora, Colo. “Two outcast loners exacted revenge against the jocks for relentlessly bullying them.
“Not one bit of that turned out to be true.”
Yet it still perpetuates to this day. This bullying myth is what creates school shooters not any perceived notion of bullying itself.
For most of 2011 I wrote a lot about the crime infested cesspool on the Delaware River known as Camden, New Jersey. If you don’t know by my recollection Camden has been the number 1 or 2 most dangerous in the city since at least 2004. I wrote about it a lot last year since I spent most of 2011 not only in New Jersey on a family matter but I was but a stone’s throw from Camden. I haven’t written about it at all this year since I’m back in North Carolina and we don’t get much news from New Jersey down here. However this morsel of information happened to make the national news.
It seems that the fair city of Camden was satisfied with just laying off half of their police force. Now they’re considering plans to disband the police department as a whole. Now that doesn’t mean there won’t be a police presence in Camden. It means that it will be replaced by a Metro Police division of the Camden County Police Department. That means that cities and towns from all over Camden County like Berlin, Clementon, Cherry Hill, Voorhees, Atco, etc. will have their tax money used to patrol Camden. Not surprising since over half of the properties in Camden are non-tax producing properties. Not to mention that where will these police officers be going. Not to any of the places I mentioned but probably mostly to Camden.
The Camden cops that will soon be out of jobs or have new non-union jobs on the Metro force are decrying that this is nothing more than union busting but when a city has no money it can’t pay its employees whether or not they’re union. However that makes me wonder how much Camden mayor Dana Redd is being paid by the city.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The only thing that would have half a chance of curbing crime in Camden at this point would be martial law and I’m not saying that for hyperbole. Camden is a cancer that could spread throughout the rest of the county where good people live if it is left unchecked. Short of razing it to the ground and starting over from scratch containment is the only possible way to keep the cancer from spreading.
Whenever there is any kind of child porn bust the people I feel sorry for the most are of course the children that appear in those images. However there are also other people that we should remember that are also affected by things like this. Think about the law enforcement officers that have to go through all of it when it’s seized as evidence and they have to catalog every single piece and frame of it. They must die a little or a lot each time they have to go through this. At least I would imagine that they get some satisfaction of busting a child porn ring or putting some of these scumbags away for a long time. Then there are the people who have to deal with almost the same abject horror who have very little in the way of rewards. I’m talking about the people who review media that are uploaded to such sites as Facebook, MyYearbook and YouTube.
The article I linked to from BuzzFeed goes into great detail how employees from these sites are underpaid and while some do receive counselling from their employers some say it’s not enough for what they have to endure. For people who work for the NCMEC it’s supposedly even worse for them.
I implore you to read the entire article to see what they have to go through on a constant basis. As dead as I may be inside I think that would eat away at the very last parts of me that still feel. They are stronger men and women than I.
One thing that I noticed about this article is that you’ll notice that neither craigslist nor backpage use any of these kinds of services. Just sayin’.
I can always tell when the new school year is about to start even though I don’t have school age kids anymore. I can usually tell because some mutant inevitably gets arrested for plotting or threatening a school shooting. This year is no different.
This year’s contestants are Marshall Judson, 18, and Matthew Murray, 17, both of Alamo Height High School in San Antonio, Texas. It seems the criminal geniuses were tripped up when someone else spotted their Facebook posts comparing themselves to the Columbine cowards Harris and Klebold.
The initial post, which police say was made by Murray, was a graphic photo of the Columbine suspects lying in a pool of blood with the caption, “BEST FRIENDS TILL THE END!!”
Police said Judson responded, “TOTALLY WANNA HANG OUT ON THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL XD.”
In a Facebook exchange littered with typos, one said he thought he could get a car and another said, “lol can I borrow a shotgun I making the ipebombs,” police said.
They also discussed making different types of shotguns, police said, then Murray stated, “so wanna be Dylan klebold” and Judson responded, “lol yes matt,” and then, “I wanna b eric harris I acvt like himxD.”
No weapons were in their possessions and they’ve both been charged with making terroristic threats.
As usual no word on where the parents were in this case. Also no word on motive other than they’re mutants.
So this is what has become of ‘reporting’ on the convicted child killers known as the West Memphis 3. Mindless Hollywood gossip,
It seems that Damien Echols and Jason Baldwin are no longer friends because of a movie that Baldwin has signed on for. Baldwin has lent his name to a movie based on the book The Devil’s Knot. Echols is supposedly unhappy with some of the ways he’s portrayed in the movie so it’s driven a wedge between the two lifelong friends and co-defendants. Doesn’t it just bring a tear to your eye? Oh wait, that’s not a tear. It’s a drop of I don’t give a fuck. (Yes I realize the irony of me posting about this so save it.)
I’ll tell you what’s really going on here. Echols has his own movie coming out with Peter Jackson called West of Memphis. I’m sure the master manipulator tried to get Baldwin to put the kibosh on the competing film.
Two things I noticed about the article I linked to. No mention of any ‘real killers’. Who has time for that when there are movies to be made? Also no mention of Misskelley at all. No movies for Jessie The Penitent I guess.
You remember 32-year-old Justin Crawford of Twin Falls, Idaho don’t you? In case you don’t He’s the twisted scumbag who allegedly got not one but two men to show up at his house in an attempt to rape his wife. Crawford posed as his wife on craigslist and convinced two dumbasses to come to his house thinking that Crawford’s wife was looking for a rape fantasy. Well, sleep tight Twin Falls because he’s been released from jail. Not just released but released on his own recognizance.
State prosecutors agreed to the release on the condition that Crawford follow court compliance instructions and that he seek treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder.
Seriously? Apparently the Idaho prosecutors must be smoking potatoes to let this guy out on the pretense that he behaves himself. His PTSD may be legitimate since he did do a tour in Iraq with the National Guard but so what? Do you think his wife is not possibly having PTSD after two strangers show up in her house with the intent of raping her so her fucked up husband can get his fucked up jollies?
This is beyond disgusting and if Crawford rabbits or finds himself in legal trouble again these prosecutors should do his time along with him.
42-year-old David Boutin of West Hempstead, New York was recently arrested in Suffolk County after he was allegedly caught with a 13-year-old boy that he met through craigslist. Boutin is supposedly some kind of financial planner. The only reason I bring that up is because apparently child molesters come from all walks of life and social classes.
Anyway the twist to this story is that the craigslist ad wasn’t picked up by police. Local cops came across Boutin by accident when they were looking for a stolen motorcycle. That leads me to believe that for every perv that gets caught on craigslist there are several more who continue to victimize unabated all because craigslist says that it’s impossible to monitor their site. Which as you should all know by now is a load of crap. They just don’t want to spend any money on monitoring the site.
I mean what’s a few hundred or few thousand kids that get molested every year compared to the money that they’re making right?
The investigation is still open. If you have any information about Boutin, police would appreciate it if you call the Seventh Squad at 631-852-8752 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
