House burns down where Oklahoma family was murdered by their kids

House where Oklahoma family was murdered by their kids burns down
The Bever house now.

If you haven’t heard about the Bever family, they were a family from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, who were killed by two of their own family members. In July of 2015, then 18-year-old Robert Bever and then 16-year-old Michael Bever allegedly stabbed and killed their father, 52-year-old David Bever, their mother, 44-year-old April Bever, brothers Daniel, 12, and Christopher, 7, and their sister, 5-year-old Victoria. Surviving the attack was a then 13-year-old Crystal, who had been stabbed, and a then 2-year-old Autumn who was unharmed. The Bever brothers are said to have killed their family because they wanted to be more famous than Columbine. Robert Bever, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in order to avoid the death penalty, while his brother Michael has been charged as an adult and is set to go on trial later this year.

The Bever house then.

There had been plans made to raze the house and turn it into a memorial park by a city councilman, but part of that point is now moot since the house caught fire last week. So far investigators have not given any cause for the fire or whether or not they think this is a case of arson. There are many possible motives as to why someone may have wanted to burn the house down, but the one I’d like to focus on is that of, what if it was done by a neighbor? I’m not saying it definitely was, because for all we know it could have been a squirrel chewing on a power line. However, the following quote from a local resident caught my attention.

Neighbors said they’re used to people stopping by to look at the house – and even vandalize it.

“They try to take things – pieces of wood from the side and stuff like that ya know,”

Now imagine living in that neighborhood with a ‘murder house’ that’s been vacant for two years, while twisted ghouls constantly come by trying to claim a piece of murderabilia. That’s not even mentioning the number of ‘normal’ vandals that the house has attracted. I could see someone from the neighborhood growing impatient with the planned demolition of the house and taking matters into their own hands.

If this was in fact a case of arson, I see many problems with someone starting their own homegrown suburban renewal program. The first is that fire is very hard to control and this easily could have spread to neighboring residents. Another problem is that fire fighters are putting their lives on the line even when dealing with a single house fire. Any one of them could have easily been killed if the slightest thing had gone wrong in fighting the fire. Then the house would have been a murder house for a second time. Lastly, if this was arson, you just made it easier for the murderabilia ghouls to take a piece of what’s left of the house. They may have even given them an incentive, since not as much of the house is left.

To be honest, I hope it was an accidental fire, as arson may even glamorize the murders further to those that get a thrill from such things.

The Alexis de Tocqueville High School shooting in France

The Tocqueville High School shooting in France

I’m sorry I’m over a week late in posting about this, I’ve been dealing with some minor inconveniences that have put my non-existent posting schedule into a backlog. Then again, when it comes to stories like these, it’s always better to wait until getting all the facts. Maybe not nine days of waiting, but here we are. So let’s get on to it.

On March 16th, 16-year-old Kylian Barbey stormed into Alexis de Tocqueville High School, or as it’s locally called, the Alexis de Tocqueville lycee, with a shotgun and ‘training’ grenades. (Flash-bangs maybe?) Barbey is accused of injuring three people at the school, including the Headmaster, Herve Pizzinat. Mr. Pizzinat is said to have not been the intended target, while two other students were struck by ricocheting bullets. Barbey reportedly told Mr. Pizzinat that “It’s not you I’m after.” The wounded Headmaster was said to have tried to talk Barbey into disarming even after being shot. Barbey was said to have been quickly apprehended by police. One witness had said that Barbey “seemed to be a student and not very big. He shot in the air and ran away.” That seems about right, a coward acting in a cowardly way. One witness said that Barbey had been allegedly bullied by classmates, but then the question remains, was he bullied because he was already an antisocial school shooting fanatic? While there were reports of a second gunman, as there usually are, this turned out to be untrue.

What comes as no surprise to me is that Barbey was a columbiner, or a school shooting fanboy for lack of a better word. Barbey is so much of a columbiner, that he’s almost a parody of what people think school shooters are. Reports say that he changed his name to Killian on his Facebook page and that on his Facebook page he had a picture inspired by the crass video game Hatred. On his YouTube page he only had a video of the movie Zero Day, which is a ‘found footage’ movie about a fictional school shooting. While it’s actually a good movie, it’s also become a hit among the cult-like columbiners. He is also said to have subscribed to the YouTube channel of Marilyn Manson. Manson was incorrectly blamed for having some type of influence on the Columbine shooting. I’m surprised he wasn’t subscribed to Rammstein’s YouTube channel since that was who the Columbine cowards actually listened to. He also had a playlist on Youtube entitled ‘Columbine’ that included saved videos about US school shootings. You might be surprised about how many of them are on YouTube, but that’s a rant for another day, especially considering YouTube’s latest controversy about hate speech and advertising, but I digress.

A day after the shooting, both Barbey’s best friend and his friend’s brother were arrested for allegedly assisting Barbey. The 17-year-old friend was also said to have been a columbiner. The friend was said to have sent a letter to “an American prisoner in the state of Ohio who is serving a sentence for committing three murders at a high school.” It’s not hard to surmise that they must be talking about T.J. Lane, who killed three students during a shooting spree at Chardon High School in Chardon, Ohio. After the shooting in Ohio, Lane amassed a number of his own misguided followers.

The guns used in the shooting were said to have belonged to his parents and grandparents which allows me to bring up one of my usual points. While Barbey’s father is described as a right-wing municipal councilor in the town of Grasse, I’m more curious to know who was actually checking up on his son’s behavior as it doesn’t appear to be something that just started overnight.

What also gets me is that this punk is only 16-years-old. He wasn’t even alive when Columbine happened, yet he still encapsulates the same sense of selfish entitlement that his cowardly heroes imbue.

Now that I’m tuned in to the story, I’ll be posting more updates as they become available and as time allows.

Facebook refuses to remove hoax picture accusing man of child abuse

Facebook refuses to remove hoax picture accusing man of child abuse

I originally posted about the Cody Wright child abuse accusation here, back in December of 2015. For the TL;DR version someone posted an uncensored version of the above picture on Facebook. I believe the picture to be a hoax because there has been no arrest, no criminal charges and no mentions in the media in over a year. Even though there is no factual evidence to support the accusations, the photo still gets spread around Facebook like it’s gospel. People who claim it’s true can’t even agree where it took place. Some say it’s New Hampshire, others say it’s Manchester in the UK, some say it’s Florida and one person has even claimed that it happened in Manchester, Indiana. This story has all the markings of being an urban legend, born out of a false accusation.

Right now, a new round of infecting the less intelligent among us on Facebook has occurred, and this time it’s been shared over 500,000 times. Since it’s going around again I thought not only would I remind the Facebook zombies that there is no proof that it’s true, I’m also going to share my story of trying to get the photo removed from Facebook. I mean, we hear all the time about how Facebook is trying to fight ‘fake news’, yet they’ll let a baseless and possibly libelous picture that has the potential to destroy an innocent man’s life spread like a disease on their network.

First off, let’s talk about the numbers. The post I attribute to the first main spread of this misinformation has been shared over 43,000 times since it first appeared in late 2015.

The second post that seems to have spurred the latest rash of postings was also posted in December of 2015, and since that time has been shared almost 600,000 times.

I thought to myself that this has to stop. Surely, this picture violates some part of Facebook’s terms of service. Well, according to Facebook, it doesn’t.

I reported the first post as harassment and this is the reply I received. I removed the names of the posters because I’m not an irrational douche, but I digress.

Then I reported the second posting as inciting violence, and this was the response I got from Facebook.

So let me get this straight. Posting what basically amounts to a bounty poster and the picture of a severely injured child with no evidence to back up the accusations doesn’t violate ANY of your ‘Community Standards’, even though posts like this in the past have severely damaged innocent people’s lives? Yet God forbid you post a picture of a mother breastfeeding her baby and Facebook will bring the wrath of God down upon you.

If anyone is reading this, who has a decent heart, go to Facebook and search for ‘Cody Wright’ Manchester’ and you should be able to find the original posts. Please report them to Facebook. Maybe if enough people report it we can finally put these unfounded accusations to rest. Also, please consider sharing this story on Facebook. Maybe if this post can become as viral as the original picture we can get it taken down.

Lastly, to those of you who believe it’s true, show me proof. Not third-hand information you heard from the girl’s cousin’s brother’s roommate. I mean actual evidence, like an arrest report or news article. Until then, shut the fuck up, sit the fuck down, and move away from whatever device you’re using because you’re just making the rest of Facebook as dumb as you.

Mich. man makes 1300 mile trip to sexually assault Texas girl he met through Tumblr

Mich. man makes 1300 mile trip to sexually assault Texas girl he met through Tumblr
Christopher David Galliway

Tumblr is the ultra-popular blogging site among young people. It’s where they make their angsty posts about how they’re offended by everything, how Trump is Hitler, and where all sorts of people are told to check their privilege. Since it is so popular among teens, it’s not uncommon for a child predator to use Tumblr to their advantage. For us internet olds, Tumblr is the heir apparent to LiveJournal.

For example, take 23-year-old Christopher David Galliway, of Fenton, Michigan. Mr. Young Combover made the 1,300 mile and 20 hour trip from his home in Felton, to College Station, Texas, where he allegedly had sex with a 16-year-old girl he had met through Tumblr. Don’t forget kids, around here we call having sex with minors child rape, and since I know you’re wondering, the age of consent in Texas is 17.

One of the features Tumblr has that parents need to be aware of is its instant messaging feature. That’s right, you have yet another messaging app to be on the lookout for. That’s not even accounting that Tumblr in itself is a very sexually charged platform. Not only is there tons of porn on Tumblr, both professional and homemade, it’s also been used in the past among child porn traders. On the Google Play Store the app is rated as Mature, which is the equivalent of an R rating for apps.

If your children are on Tumblr, there is a ton of questionable content they can be exposed to that’s probably not healthy for them. It would be worth your while not only to check out your kid’s Tumblr, but to see who they’re following as well. You never know when one of them may show up at your doorstep while you’re not home and your child is.

Neck tattoo accused of posting violent domestic assault on Snapchat

Neck tattoo accused of posting violent domestic assault on Snapchat
Christopher Conway

Back in olden times, I use to post stories about unintelligent criminals who would post their crimes on social media and then think that the police never look at such things. I’m not saying I invented that type of content, but after a while everybody started posting stories like that. So being the hipster crime blogger that I am I stopped, but on occasion a story in that vein compels me to post about it once again.

Take for example, our subject above, one 35-year-old Christopher Conway of Phoenix, Arizona. I mean that mugshot alone would probably want to make me post about him even if he was caught for jaywalking. Sadly, that’s not the crime that Conway was arrested for. He was arrested for allegedly violently assaulting his girlfriend and posting the heinous act on the mobile picture sharing app Snapchat.

This wasn’t your ‘typical’ domestic violence either, not that domestic violence should ever be called typical but Conway is said to have gone to some brutally violent extremes…

According to court records, the alleged victim told police that Conway taped her hands, feet, and mouth up. The tapes, according to court documents, were removed and reapplied several times. Police also said the man used weapons, including knives, cigarettes, and a drill, which left various visible injuries. Conway reportedly placed a drill to the alleged victim’s head to tangle her hair.

Conway is said to have taken the woman’s phone and taken a picture of her naked and bound and posted it to Snapchat. When asked about the photo and the incident Conway reportedly replied that it was just “a game”. What fucking game involves knives, cigarettes and a drill? That sounds more like a biker gang initiation. Calling this “a game” is right up there with pedophiles saying they’re just ‘hanging out’ with children.

I have no tolerance for domestic abusers. They’re cowards who think that they have the right to abuse their partners, some even going as far to brag about it, which seems like what Mr. Neck Tattoo did here.

If you’re caught in abusive relationship and need help please contact The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE. You don’t have to take it and you deserve better. There is no man or woman out there worth being tortured over.

Okla. State Senator caught ‘hanging out’ with child prostitute from craigslist

Okla. State Senator caught 'hanging out' with child prostitute from craigslist
Ralph Shortey

Oklahoma State Senator Ralph Shortey was allegedly caught in a Moore, Oklahoma, motel room with a 17-year-old male that he had met through craigslist. When asked why the Senator was in the room with a minor he was said to have replied “he was just there to hang out with his friend.” I’m pretty sure every time a child predator says that, a Chris Hansen gets his wings.

The teen’s family reportedly told police that the boy has a history of turning himself out on craigslist for money. Just because he was a willing participant, that doesn’t excuse Senator Shortey for his actions. While 16 may be the legal age of consent in Oklahoma, since the boy was under 18 that still makes it child prostitution.

It will be interesting to see if the Senator receives probation or if he will be running for President of the cell block.

Buffalo babysitter charged with sharing child porn on Kik

Buffalo babysitter charged with sharing child porn on Kik

There’s not a lot of detail on this story, but federal authorities say that Shane Michael Aurand was working as a babysitter in Buffalo, New York, when he allegedly shared child porn with an undercover agent on the mobile messaging app Kik. To answer your next question, sadly, it is believed that Aurand produced the child porn using a child he was babysitting. He also allegedly said that he would send the agent more child porn if he received some in return. Not to get off topic, but he sounds like the kind of babysitter someone would hire off of craigslist, but I digress.

As I’ve said in the past, Kik is one of the most commonly used apps by sex offenders, pedophiles, and child porn traders. Unfortunately, sometimes those groups are also inhabited by babysitters. Choose wisely.

NY RSO sent sex toys to 14-year-old girl he met through Instagram

NY RSO sent sex toys to 14-year-old girl he met through Instagram
David Ohnmacht

36-year-old David Ohnmacht was convicted in 2003, in Westchester County, New York, for sexual abuse and sexual assault charges involving four victims, ranging in age from 13 to 15. He was sentenced to 40 months to 10 years in prison, and spent nine years in jail before being released. He used numerous jobs such as lifeguard, ice-cream truck driver, student theater coordinator and party planner to prey upon his victims. It almost seems like this guy wrote the book on how to be a child predator.

After his release, he was forbidden from using the internet, but his parole expired in November of 2016. That’s when authorities say that the man from Katonah allegedly started using the mobile photo sharing app Instagram to groom a 14-year-old North Carolina girl he met through the popular app.

Click here for more stories about Instagram

Ohnmacht allegedly used the screen names of “Dannyw290” and “little.kitty.love” to pose as a 19-year-old male and a teenage girl in order to get his victim to send him explicit pictures of herself. He is also said to have obtained the girl’s home address and was able to send her sex toys in the mail, more than likely for her to use in images and videos meant for her tormentor. Like a number of predators, again to seemingly appear from a sexual predator’s handbook, he made the girl call her ‘daddy’.

Police believe there may be more victims involved…

Federal authorities said the investigation was ongoing. They asked anyone with information on Ohnmacht or the social media accounts “Dannyw290” and “little.kitty.love” to contact the FBI at (914) 925-3700.

If you’re going to allow your underage kids to use Instagram, then you need to know not only who is following them but who is leaving comments and likes on their pictures. You should also monitor what pictures they’re sharing because predators are able to ascertain many personal details about their victims’ lives just by paying attention to small details in the pictures. The best example I keep giving is that some predators can determine where your child may go to school by seeing the most innocuous item in the background of the picture, such as a sports uniform.

Another thing to be careful of is what many people are calling ‘Finstas’ or ‘Finstagrams’, otherwise known as fake Instagrams. Instagram allows users to create five different accounts, and some people use these Finstas to hide images from whomever they don’t want viewing their pictures. It’s a good idea to occasionally check your kids’ accounts to make sure that they don’t have one of these hidden accounts. If you’re not doing random checks on these apps, then you’re allowing the predators to possibly gain a foothold into their lives.

Trio of Backpage child traffickers to get sweetheart deal with no jail time

Trio of Backpage child traffickers to get sweetheart deal with no jail time
Brandi Beauchamp, Ashley Breedlove, Ciera Beauchamp

I originally posted about Brandi Beauchamp, Ashley Breedlove, and Ciera Beauchamp here. Ciera Beauchamp was the legal guardian of a 17-year-old girl who she allegedly prostituted on Backpage. Beuchamp’s sister, Brandi, and her girlfriend Breedlove, are said to have quit their jobs just so they could all collect money from this girl. The victim is said to even have contracted an STI thanks to her ‘guardian’ turning her out on Backpage.

You would think that child traffickers and child abusers like that would have the book thrown at them, but it’s not so. The prosecution has offered them a deal where they will see no jail time if they plead guilty to promoting prostitution. The most they’re looking at is two years of house arrest.

What kind of message does this send when three women were making money off of one 17-year-old girl who was forced to be violated by strangers for money? For that matter what message does that send to the victim where the suspects will only receive ankle bracelets for all the abuse she endured? This isn’t justice, it’s a mockery of what this girl had to withstand. The even sadder part is that this is what Backpage has wrought. There are multitudes of girls just like this still being turned out on Backpage and the legal system hardly seems to care.

Snapchat sleaze who had sex with a 16-year-old was a family friend

Snapchat sleaze who had sex with a 16-year-old was a family friend
Jordan Newman

25-year-old Jordan David Newman, of Panama City, Florida, was recently arrested for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl. Before we continue any further, it really shouldn’t be called a sexual relationship but rather child rape, and the age of consent in Florida is 18 for those that need reminding. Reportedly, Newman is also a local EMT who used the fire station to have sex with the girl. Newman is also accused of using photo sharing app Snapchat to exchange sexually explicit pictures and communicate with his victim.

While I tend to mainly post about online predators, the truth is that a child is more likely to be sexually assaulted by someone they know. That’s not to say that these ‘familiar’ predators still won’t use the same tools as the online predators. Newman is said to be a friend of the girl’s family. Even if that friend is one of your family’s most trusted associates, it’s highly inappropriate for a 25-year-old man to be having Snapchat conversations with a 16-year-old girl. Any decent man should know that.
