This past Tuesday Hill pleaded guilty to the charges against him. He said that he wanted to take responsibility for his actions. He was then sentenced to 20 years in prison, that sentence doesn’t help anyone. Hill has a history of mental illness, specifically being bi-polar. According to Hill’s brother he was off his meds because his Medicaid ran out, a situation that I can certainly relate to. Even at his hearing Hill admitted he was trying to commit suicide by cop.
“He knew because there were children the police would come there and they would fire at him and he would die,” Deets told Superior Court Judge Mark Anthony Scott. “He is a 21-year-old man who had the deck stacked against him from birth. He reached out for help but our system, as it exists, is not equipped to give people like Mr. Hill help.”
Not to mention, and yes I will keep beating this horse, that seeking help for mental health issues in our society is still stigmatized. His own brother even said that he had ‘the bi-polar’. That’s a great example of how many people are still ignorant of what these terms really mean.
Bottom line is 20 years in prison is too much for Michael Hill. This is someone who actually needs treatment and not jail. Sentence him to a state psychiatric facility? Fine, that I have no problem with. In prison I doubt he’ll get nearly the help he needs.
A big deal is being made about the fact that Michael Brandon Hill allegedly had 500 bullets on him when he exchanged gunfire with police at the Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy. A lot of people seem to think that this shows how intent he was on killing people at the school. I’m still not buying it. I still think that he was trying to commit suicide by cop. Not to take credit away from Antoinette Tuff though. She talked him into surrendering rather than taking his own life. However if Hill was really intent on killing kids he would have because any kind of security in our country is mostly theater, or done for the sake of appearance if you will. A man with an AK-47 and 500 rounds of ammo can go anywhere he damn well please depending on his willingness to kill and again I don’t think Hill had it in him.
Hill’s brother appeared recently on Piers Morgan’s show and stated that his brother has a history of mental illness.
“Once he started hitting his teenage years, something happened with him. Everything just started changing after doctors started messing with his medicines here and there, and changing them up and putting him on a different one and institutionalizing him multiple times to correct his medicine. It just escalated from there.”
He said Michael Hill set fire to the family’s home when eight people were inside sleeping — the fire was discovered before it spread — and at another point their mother awoke to find him standing over her with a butcher’s knife.
“My stepfather and mother ended up having to lock up…like all the knives in the trunk of the car, just to protect everybody in the home,” Tim Hill told Morgan.
Tim Hill also confirmed that his brother threatened his life on Facebook, prompting him to call police. He said he feared for his life.
Not to excuse Hill’s actions in any way but supposedly he was off of his medications because his Medicaid benefits ran out. That opens up a whole other can of worms that we won’t get into right now. All I’m saying is that no one was physically hurt in any of Hill’s previous violent tendencies. I think these were all cries for attention as he seems to be all bark and no bite.
Like I said previously this is one of the rare cases where I hope the suspect gets the help he needs. It just shouldn’t take having to storm an elementary school with a loaded rifle to get it.
Yesterday 20-year-old Michael Brandon Hill stormed the Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in DeKalb County, Georgia. The school is an elementary school. Hill was said to be armed with an AK-47 among other weapons. Considering the media and I haven’t seen a picture of the actual gun that’s up for debate if it was an AK-47 because sometimes the media thinks that just about any rifle is an AK-47, but I digress.
Once inside the school Hill told a school employee to call local TV station WSB to tell them ‘start filming while police die. After exchanging shots with police Hill surrendered peacefully. Not to flog a deceased thoroughbred but I was unable to find which weapon he used to exchange gunfire with police. It’s also unknown at this time if Hill has any connection with the school. No one was injured in the fracas. Some reports say that a school secretary by the name of Antoinette Tuff talked him into surrendering. Hill’s brother says that the suspect has a history of mental problems ‘including bi-polar’.
Neighbors say that Hill was quiet and polite and looked after his roommates’ kids without any trouble.
On the surface I’m going to say that this was more than likely a suicide by cop plan. Hill slipped into the school behind somebody and if he was really going to kill any children he would not have hesitated and what better way to get the attention of an entire police force? Since he has ‘bi-polar’ as his brother put it he could have been having an extremely depressive episode which could have triggered this. As some who has the ‘bi-polar’ I can sympathize with Hill but I can’t excuse his actions. Just with that brief exchange of gunfire with police could have resulted in the deaths of innocent victims. If my hypothesis is correct this would be one of the few times I would prefer to see the suspect sentenced to a mental facility rather than prison.
Just by his brother saying that he has ‘bi-polar’ shows how much that people with depressive conditions are still stigmatized in today’s society. We need to let this stigma go so more people would be willing to come forward to get the treatment they need than resorting to acts of self-violence that could also harm others.
Authorities in Georgia have arrested 24-year-old Raymundo Aranda-Parra of Norcross, Georgia and charged him with the statutory rape of a 14-year-old girl that he met on MocoSpace. Police say that Aranda-Parra allegedly made a 229 mile trip from Norcross to Glennville where he picked up the girl and took her to a hotel back in Norcross. So that’s more than 450 miles this assclown drove in order to get some underage tail.
Aranda-Parra is saying that the girl posed as a 19-year-old on the mobile gaming site which I’m sure will bring out all the creeper defenders. They’ll ignore the facts in this case because facts would interfere with their agenda of trying to make sex with underage kids accepted. The facts are that Aranda-Parra already had a run in with the girl’s parents when he showed up at their house. I can’t imagine that the girl’s father wouldn’t inform this scumbag at the time that his daughter was only 14. Not to mention that he took her to a hotel back in his hometown after secretly absconding with her from her house. In my opinion he knew what he was doing and was probably fully aware of her true age. So take your “this girl is equally liable” crap and shove it.
Wow, a MeetMe scumbag that’s not from Pennsylvania? Will wonders never cease?
Anyway Eddie Munster there is 23-year-old Andrew Petronaci of Dacula, Georgia. He’s been charged with allegedly soliciting nude photos, aka child porn, from a 14-year-old on the former MyYearbook. No word on if the victim was male or female.
Petronaci was only given $5,700 bond which he posted and is now out. Sleep tight parents of Dacula. You just keep letting your kids use the internet unmonitored. What’s the worst that could happen right?
Alleged members of Atlanta-based gang Da M.O.B. are accused of raping and prostituting girls as young as 14. They allegedly used the Village Voice Media owned Backpage.com to turn out the girls.
Those charged are Fabian Terran Murray, Joshua Thomas Hill, Richard Douglas King, Clinton Saintvil, and Jonathan Christopher Branch. All five have been federally indicted and all five have pleaded not guilty.
Authorities allege that they met two 14-year-old girls took them to a hotel room where they were raped before turning them out on Backpage to be raped by other men for money. It’s also alleged that one of them beat and choked another 14-year-old who refused to work for them. A 16-year-old victim claims that she was beaten daily and held against her will, She also claims that she was shot at when she tried to escape. She says that she was raped as well.
What’s not being talked about in this story is Backpage itself. They claim they have all these safeguards in effect and that all ads are reviewed fir illegalities yet somehow women and children are still being trafficked. Not only trafficked but held against their will, raped and shot at. Yet Backpage still refuses to shut down the adult section and claims that they’re helping stop sex trafficking. They could stop a lot more by shutting down the adult section but then they’re precious outdated print media business would be in danger of going bankrupt.
Police in Dunwoody, Georgia have arrested 20-year-old Christopher Williams in the shooting death of 30-year-old Roberto Calderon-Guzman. Calderon-Guzman was known around some Atlanta circles as drag queen Noxy Cassandra Calderon. The article from GA Voice seems to insinuate that Calderon-Guzman was advertising on the Village Voice Media owned backpage.com as a transsexual sex worker.
Williams is accused of robbing another transsexual sex worker as well. Police say that Williams used the phone of the first victim to set up the meeting with Calderon-Guzman.
Police believe there may be other victims as well…

I’m not here to trash someone’s lifestyle choice but if you put yourself out there on Backpage for whatever reason you’re opening yourself up to predators and killers. And while Backpage may not have the number of killers that craigslist has racked up over the years they’re slowly starting to catch up.
Like I said recently about our nation’s military I have the utmost respect for the men and women in law enforcement in our country. They really do have a thankless task. However I will post about a dirty cop when the occasion sadly arises. Now one doesn’t have to be ‘on the take’ to be dirty, one can be a sexual predator as well.
For example take 26-year-old Gwinnett, Georgia rookie cop David Lowe. He was recently arrested by his own department for allegedly sharing sexually explicit videos with minors on MyYearbook. The impression that I got from the articles on Lowe he allegedly created a MyYearbook profile posing as a teen. Supposedly MyYearbook limits what age group you can communicate with. If you were to list your age on your profile as 26 then you wouldn’t be able to chat with minors through the site. However as I’ve documented many times in the past that doesn’t mean that predators can’t lie about their age in their profiles.
Surprisingly Lowe is set to be terminated by the Gwinnett Police Department if he hasn’t been already. That’s refreshing since I’ve posted too many stories of bad cops who get suspended with pay.
35-year-old Jennifer Long of Columbus, Georgia has been charged in the murder of her adopted 18-month-old daughter, Alexis Long. According to police Alexis threw a temper tantrum after a long trip. In return Long allegedly threw Alexis onto a wooden changing table. The impact was so strong the table was said to have splintered in the middle. After the impact Alexis was unresponsive and died after being airlifted to the hospital.
I want to illustrate the amount of force needed to make a table almost split in half and the only way I can think of doing that is with professional wrestling. Please humor me for a moment. Here’s a video where one wrestler throws another through a table at the 1:40 mark.
Now here’s my point. In professional wrestling those tables are what’s known as gimmicked. They are partially cut to try to make it easier for the wrestler to go through. However these men are in upwards of 300 pounds and still need tremendous force to go through the table. I’ve actually even seen some matches where the table did not break and the wrestler just bounced off the table. Not to mention they still can get injured whether the stunt works or not.
Now imagine the force it must have taken for someone to throw a toddler down on to a wooden table that caused the table to splinter in the middle like that. An average toddler weighs about 24 lbs. (10.8 kg), not the 250-300 lbs of a pro wrestler. The force that she must have used must have been almost superhuman to cause that kind of destruction.
Long has been charged with Alexis’ murder and is being held without bond. Her husband, Timothy Long, has been charged with second degree child cruelty and is out on $5000 bond.
And don’t think I’ve forgotten the fact that Alexis was adopted. Being adopted myself I know that being adopted is supposed to mean being given a second chance at life with loving parents. It doesn’t mean you can just slam your kids down on the furniture.
Of course Long has pleaded not guilty. If there was any justice in the world ‘they’ should see if she could survive something like this.
Lately I’ve been getting mail and comments from people telling me to mind my own business and stop interfering in the business of ‘consenting adults’. Again I would say that the majority of these adults are far from consenting.
For example Solomon Manasseh Mustafa, 37, and Kalandra Annette Wallace, 24, have been federally indicted on kidnapping and sex trafficking charges in Atlanta. Investigators say that the pair recruited women into prostitution on backpage and craigslist. They allegedly lured the women by saying it would be a ‘family like’ atmosphere. By family like they must have meant Manson Family like.
The women soon learned that meant being beaten, raped and handcuffed if they resisted selling sex or decided to leave the Mustafa-Wallace family, said First Assistant U.S. Attorney John Horn. The five women were also trafficked to neighboring states.
One of the women escaped from the pair by tying bed sheets together and climbing down from an apartment she was being held. In case you didn’t know consenting adults don’t try to escape their bosses movie prison break style. some of the women also claim they were held in closets and had their eyes and wrists bound in duct tape and were repeatedly raped.
Mustafa is also accused of recruiting a 14-year-old runaway girl before letting her go. That’s neither consenting nor an adult.
also I know I don’t need to mention it again but I will. Craigslist and backpage are still in dire need of moderation if they want to be serious about sexual slavery and human trafficking but it’s obvious their not.
