Ok so first I am going to apologize for the lateness of this particular post. I found several in February that I thought needed attention and unfortunately never got to them, but still had them in my BB folder. I still think they are deserving of some shaming so here we go.
Back on February 16th Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputies entered a mobile home in the early morning hours and arrested a knife wielding rape suspect who was holding a homemade flamethrower. Flamethrower?? That’s a new one. Ok, I know get on with it.
As I am sure you have figured out, if it is on BB, the rape suspect has to be a parent and the victim their child, and you would be correct. In this case we have David Jewell a father of three children ages, 17, 15 and 11-years-old. David’s 15-year-old son had called the police to the family’s trailer stating that the night before his father had raped his 11-year-old sister and was now threatening to commit suicide. To bad he didn’t do it before he forced himself on his daughter and altered her life forever.
Anyhow as police arrived they could hear screaming coming from inside the home and called inside to make contact with Jewell and attempt to talk him out. Instead he sent out his three children and began to set the curtains, cabinets and blinds in the house on fire. Jewell then began waving his flamethrower (aerosol can and lighter) at the police and picked up a knife. He was promptly tasered (sp?), handcuffed and removed from the burning trailer.
It was determined that Jewell had consumed a large amount of painkillers and was transported to the hospital before being booked into jail. The children were interviewed by sex crimes detectives and released to their grandparents. Their mother is a long haul trucker.
What a hero this little girl’s big brother is, he will never know how brave he was turning in his father.
