Yesterday in the Charlotte, North Carolina, suburb of Matthews, a fight broke out between two students of Butler High School. Before it was all over 16-year-old freshman Jatwan Cuffie was said to have shot 16-year-old Bobby McKeithen. McKeithen later died from his injuries at a nearby hospital. Local officials have said that the shooting escalated from a bullying incident. Since there is still a persistent myth that the majority of school shooters were bullied one might assume that it was Cuffie was the one who was bullied since he was the one armed with a gun. I wouldn’t jump to such conclusions.
For one, it’s not unheard of for bullies to commit such shootings. Case in point is the shooting of Lawrence King at E.O. Green Junior High in Oxnard, California. King was an openly gay student who had been thrown out by his own father for being gay. King was also being bullied by Brandon McInerney for being gay. Instead of reacting through violence, King used his intellect to get back at McInerney by pretending to hit on McInerney. McInerney became so enraged he brought a gun to school and shot Lawrence King in the back of the head at point-blank range. I believe that’s called ‘execution style’.
Secondly, so far, there have been no reports on who committed the actual bullying but don’t assume it wasn’t the gunman. According to multiple witnesses, after Cuffie produced the gun, McKeithen turned his back on him but that didn’t stop Cuffie from shooting McKeithen in the back. Many bullies do tend to be cowards. Also, from the reports I’ve read, McKeithen was well liked in the community while I have yet to see any platitudes for Cuffie. Granted, that can be chalked up to the fact that people often talk about the recently deceased, especially those lost to violence like they were saints in life but I’m not getting a vibe of many people willing to stand up for Cuffie.
There’s another part to this story that is almost equally as disturbing as the shooting itself. After the shooting, the school did not cancel classes for the day. Any student whose parents couldn’t come and get them had to spend the remainder of the day at school while it was an active crime scene. As a country, are we that numb to school shootings anymore that it becomes business as usual after one happens or is it a body count issue? “Meh, only one kid died and we can’t afford to lose any snow days so let’s keep going.”
I’ll also be curious to see where the gun came from since even in North Carolina 16-year-old can’t legally purchase handguns. More than likely it came from some ‘responsible’ gun owner.
Alexander Nathan Barter
While you may find his appearance comical, the crimes he’s accused of are definitely not. 21-year-old Alexander Nathan Barter of Texas is accused of allegedly going on the dark web in order to find someone who would sell him a little girl in order to kill and cannibalize her. It’s said that Barter also had an interest in necrophilia but it’s unclear if that’s what he wanted to do with his quarry as well. Thankfully, the person he was talking to on the dark web was an undercover agent with the Texas Department of Public Safety.
After seeing the mugshot of David Goldammer of Florida, his alleged crime shouldn’t be that surprising. After police allegedly found Goldammer passed out behind the wheel of his truck, Goldammer is said to have almost stumbled out of the truck. What was found in the truck was more interesting as police were said to have found, well, this…
At least one report states that police found two loaded handguns, another handgun in his waistband, two more loaded handguns, a semi-automatic rifle, a pocketknife with a swastika on it, a bullet-resistant vest and a large amount of ammunition. But you know, I guess he just needed all those guns to protect all the empty containers in his truck. It’s not like Florida has a large Jewish population or anything.
If you come across any recent weird and unusual mugshots, please feel free to send them my way.
Once again, the idiots of Facebook worked collectively to try to ruin a man’s life just by resharing a post that had absolutely no evidence or truth behind it. A man in Liberal, Kansas, which I understand is not very liberal, was accused of sex trafficking in a Facebook post that took off like wildfire. Facebook removed the post but whoever had it out for this guy took it to the other place where crazy people will believe any bullshit they see, craigslist. Craigslist removed the post after being contacted by local news. Local police say there is no evidence of the man in question being involved in any actual trafficking.
Even though the post was removed, there are still going to people in his area who not only believed the post but will continue to spread the unfounded accusation all throughout town. This man may have to keep defending his reputation in the real world for years to come because of the ever-present Facebook lynch mob that always seems to be looking for reputations to be fed into its cavernous maw. Again, these type of baseless accusations can be incredibly devastating to the people falsely accused and have caused at least one man to take his own life.
If you see people doing this on Facebook, don’t be afraid to call them out. Or send them to me, as I have a history of calling people dumbasses on Facebook.
Just because it’s been months since I posted a story about Kik doesn’t mean all their predators have been inactive. For example, 33-year-old Christopher Goodin of Elyria, Ohio, is accused of allegedly posing as a 12-year-old girl and the fake girl’s abusive bully in order to extort nudes from a 12-year-old girl over the mobile messaging app. Using the name ‘Shorty853’ on Kik. Goodin is said to have befriended a 12-year-old Utah girl through Kik. He was then able to solicit explicit pictures of the girl. In order to keep receiving the images ‘Shorty853’ told the girl that an older man was bullying her and that the only way to get him to stop was to send the older man more images. Using the name ‘Sambamo1’ on Kik, Goodin harassed the 12-year-old Utah girl into sending more images to that username. The victim allegedly told her mother and Goodin was arrested by the FBI.
Although this is nothing new for this website, this story shows what lengths these online predators will go to in order to ensnare their underage prey. No amount of chicanery is too outlandish or far-fetched for these cretins to try to worm their way in your child’s life. And once again I have to advise any parents out there that no 12-year-old should ever be on Kik. You may trust your kids but you can’t trust all the sex offenders, pedophiles, and child porn collectors who use Kik as their collective grooming grounds.
News 5 Cleveland
20-year-old Caleb Rosario of San Antonio, Texas, is accused of allegedly sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl he met through Snapchat. Rosario was said to have snuck the girl out of her house before taking her to an apartment. Then it gets weird…um weirder.
While at the apartment, the victim said Rosario showed her a loaded gun, only to later point it to his head, saying he wanted to kill himself. She told the SAPD detective that Rosario asked her if she wanted to kill herself too, to which she said, ‘No,’ according to the affidavit.
During the assault, the girl’s phone kept ringing which freaked out Rosario. He then is said to have dropped the girl off at a McDonald’s. Police found the girl’s underwear at Rosario’s apartment.
No 11-year-old girl should be on Snapchat. Even by Snapchat’s own terms of service, a user is supposed to be at least 13-years-old, but they’re not actually going to check so you can’t rely on Snapchat to monitor your kids. Learn your kids’ technology and how to limit their access to dangerous apps. And always make sure that their bedrooms are device-free after bedtime.
Let’s put aside all this depressing school shooting news for a moment so we can talk about something else, and that something else would be knife attack plot at a Florida middle school.
Two female students at Bartow Middle School in Bartow, Florida, were arrested for allegedly having knives at the school. The reason they had the knives was supposedly because they had planned to kill 15 people at the school. They were caught in the school bathroom where they reportedly waiting for a victim they could overpower. Police found messages between the suspects that said they wanted to leave body parts outside of the school. The girls also were said to have told police that not only the pair had planned on committing suicide but they were both Satanists.
Ten years ago, this may have shocked me. Now, I’m not surprised at all. The more kids like this are able to indulge in things like ‘Satanism’ while unattended, the more these things will continue. Again, parents need to monitor what their kids are doing online to try to prevent things like this from happening because I can almost guarantee that’s where these girls got this idea. I would even hazard a guess that it was probably from Tumblr. Anyway, as a parent, you’re supposed to be smarter than your kids, so be smarter and learn their technology or you might have to visit them in detention and I don’t mean the one at school.
A white woman from New Jersey was harassed on Facebook by some cretin from Kentucky for having three biracial children. The threats the racist assclown made were so harrowing she contacted not only her local police but authorities in Kentucky as well. Before we get to the heart of the story let’s see what this less than enlightened individual had to say to the poor woman.
“There’s no such thing as white privileged . . . I hope your black children gets hung for you being so stupid. They have all the same rights we have now a days so please you and your monkey children go die.”
Truly, the greatest mind of a generation.
Joking aside, with what this hate-filled troglodyte is accused of it’s only by providence that a mass tragedy was avoided.
When Kentucky State police approached 21-year-old Dylan Jarrel he was leaving his home and was allegedly armed with a gun, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, a kevlar vest, and the plans to shoot up not just one but two separate school districts.
So far, no motive has been divulged but you probably wouldn’t be too far off if you said it was probably racially or politically motivated. Since the last Presidential campaign, it seems that the racists of our country have cast off their hoods and have become emboldened in their hate and violence. It’s going to get worse before it gets better.
