Facebook hammer killer resentenced

Facebook hammer killer resentenced

Tyler Hadley

In 2011, a then 17-year-old Tyler Hadley of Port St. Lucie, Florida, killed both of his parents with a claw hammer before dragging their bodies to their bedroom. While the bodies of  Mary Jo and Blake Hadley remained in the bedroom, Tyler Hadley threw a party for all of his Facebook friends. He even showed one of his friends the corpses of his murdered parents.

While in prison he gave out autographs to other prisoners signed ‘Hammer Time’ Hadley was charged as an adult and pleaded no contest to their murders. Subsequently, he was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences. However, his sentence was thrown out after the Supreme Court ruled that minors couldn’t be sentenced to mandatory life sentences without the possibility of parole.

Last week a new sentence was handed down for Hadley and it was a lesser sentence, however, it may be unlikely Hadley would ever be a free man. The sentence he received this time was two concurrent life sentences.

The judge presiding over the sentencing had this to say…

“The defendant displayed perverse premeditation, heartless cruelty and savagery, extreme violence, a willingness to mutilate and absolute depravity,” the judge declared. “Considering the victims were blood relatives and were killed up close and personally with a handheld tool, it’s obvious the defendant was fueled by a long, simmering, passionate hatred toward those who loved him the most.”

I’m satisfied that Hadley received two life sentences although I would have preferred them to be served consecutively again. It was also good to see a maniac like this put away for life despite the best efforts of the Supreme Court. Personally, I have no problem with minors being sentenced to LWOP for certain offenses like premeditated murder. If a teenager doesn’t understand that murder is not only illegal but inherently wrong then they’re too stupid to be among the rest of us anyway.

Mugshot Special: The Cannibal and The Drunken Armory

Mugshot Special: The Cannibal and The Drunken Armory

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.

David Goldammer

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.

Death row craigslist killer wants new trial

Death row craigslist killer wants new trial

David Sparre

In 2010, a then 19-year-old David Sparre stabbed 21-year-old Tiara Pool 89 times, killing the Jacksonville, Florida mother after meeting her through craigslist. In 2011, he was convicted of her murder and in 2012 was sentenced to death. In 2015, his death sentence was upheld. Now, Sparre is looking for a new trial on the grounds of ineffective counsel and diminished mental capacity.

What shouldn’t be forgotten about this story is the letter Sparre wrote to his ex-girlfriend after his conviction where he stated he enjoyed killing Tiara, admitted planning the murder for weeks and thought he was smarter than police. Egomania and psychopathy aside, does that sound like someone with a diminished mental capacity to you?

Meanwhile, Tiara’s family, who by all accounts are loving and close-knit, can’t appeal the death sentence David Sparre inflicted unfairly on Tiara just because she answered his craigslist ad.

Jordan Waters

At the young age of 20-years-old, Jordan Waters, of Spring Hill, Florida, was already on five years probation for soliciting a 14-year-old girl for sex over Facebook Messenger. I guess the threat of prison didn’t stop him from his acrimonious activities as he’s been arrested again for a similar crime.

Police in Hernando County, Florida, say that Waters allegedly found the Snapchat username of a 14-year-old girl and sent explicit images of himself to the girl and solicited her for sex. When the girl told him that she was 14 Waters reportedly responded with he didn’t care how old she was. To make matters worse. Waters would allegedly stand outside of the school the girl attended and would watch the students being dismissed from school. It also turned out Waters was contacting other students from the school as well.

Police were able to pose as one of the victims and convinced him to meet at a park where Waters was promptly arrested.

If I was still a parent of school age children, this story would scare the hell out of me. Waters lived only a block from the school. Even though he was on probation and not on the sex offender registry, why was he still allowed to be so close to the school? I doubt even if he was on the registry he still wouldn’t have been dissuaded from doing what he wanted to do, but this is a definite oversight. We need to stop handling these creeps with kid gloves and give them sentences that will keep them away from our kids.

10-year-old boy fends off sister’s Instagram stalker

10-year-old boy fends off sister's Instagram stalker

Michael Maurice Williams

I come from an age when if you were on the internet you never used your real name, hence the reason I’ve been using a pseudonym for 20 years. But today, people not only use their real names but some post almost every aspect of their lives onto social media. One of the many drawbacks to having such an active social media presence is stalking.

25-year-old Michael Maurice Williams of Delray Beach, Florida, is accused of allegedly breaking into the Boynton Beach home of a 20-year-old woman with a burgeoning music career he was following on Instagram. Williams is said to have repeatedly tried to stare into the woman’s bedroom, but one night late in November, Williams reportedly entered her home through the bedroom window, forced the woman down on the bed and tried to forcibly remove her clothing. I’m just going to go ahead and call that attempted rape even though that charge was not mentioned in any of the articles I read.

Williams was foiled by the woman’s 10-year-old brother who charged at him with a knife. Williams pushed the boy away but the woman and her brother were able to force Williams out of the home. Now that’s a brave kid. Williams is currently being held without bail.

While Williams is ultimately responsible for his own twisted actions, social media, much like anything else, should only be indulged in moderation for safety reasons alone.

Florida man drew school shooting on kid’s homework

Robert Paul Alexander Edwards and his creation

33-year-old Robert Paul Alexander Edwards, of Gulf County, Florida, has been charged with the second-degree felony of written threat to kill or do bodily injury. The man with four first names allegedly drew a sketch of a school shooting on his stepson’s homework. You can tell by his mugshot that he probably has a history of poor life choices.

The threat was deemed to be not credible, but what was this moron thinking? Did he honestly think it wouldn’t come back to bite him in the ass? If I had to hazard a guess, I would say there’s probably some mental health issues going on here, however, that should not excuse his actions. It makes me wonder if the child is in a safe environment.

William Napolitano

William Napolitano was a Pasco County Schools transportation manager. That was before he was picked up by Homeland Security in a years long child porn investigation. HSI found Napolitano after busting a prolific child porn trader on Kik. Investigators say that Napolitano was in the trader’s contacts list. Napolitano was said to have used the alias of William Snyder and his Kik username was ‘routemeup’. Under that Kik user name he allegedly communicated with undercover investigators on Kik with subjects such as ‘Into yng rape’ and ‘Ynger the better.’

When investigators caught up with Napolitano, he was said to be in possession of lube, a ‘male-enhancement’ device, a screw driver and baby wipes. What some of these scumbags are caught with is almost as funny as the excuses they give. However, child porn is no laughing matter. Whenever one of thsee images is shared it’s like the victim is being violated all over again and Kik is one of the largest trading avenues of the vile material. Sadly, it doesn’t seem like Kik is in any hurry to discourage it.

Chad Robison

36-year-old Chad Robison was an employee of a church in Lecanto, Florida. He was arrested back in July after coworkers allegedly found child porn on his work computer. After police were called, investigators were said to have found 3000 videos and 350,000 explicit pictures of minors including several chats Robison reportedly had with a 14-year-old girl on the anonymous chat website Omegle. Robison was said to have used screen recording software to record the video chats he had with the girl. He is said to have wanted to meet the girl as well.

Again to parents, Omegle is a website and not an app and can be accessed by any device with a web browser and camera. This means it could be used on a laptop, a tablet or phone. This also may be a good opportunity to show your kids that if they chat with strangers online, whatever they do can be recorded by the person on the other side of the conversation. It should also be reiterated to them that once an image or video of them is out on the internet it’s out there forever.
