Fatal stabbing at South East High prompts call for more security:

Last week 18-year-old Abraham Lopez stabbed his ex-girlfriend, 17-year-old Cindi Santana, to death in the lunchroom of South East High School in Los Angeles.

My guess is this macho douchebag lived by the ‘If I can’t have you no one can’ credo considering that 3 days prior to Cindi’s murder Lopez was released from jail after being arrested for making threats against her. I’ll get into more of that in a second.

I’m not sure how this came about but police thought that Lopez may have planted a bomb in the Santana’s family car so the parking garage at the hospital had to be evacuated.

The high schools in our country have declined into nothing but coed prisons where anybody can be shanked on any given day and do you know whose fault it is? The parents of these thugs who refuse to do anything about their violent kids. Lopez got out of jail after somebody paid the $50,000 bail. Who do you think probably paid that bail to get their stabby little snowflake out of jail?

It’s not going to get better either. With each generation we become a more trashy and violent society and eventually the bad will outnumber the good and violent crime will spread to every corner of our country.

H/T to Bonnie.

UPDATE 5/13/2012: Lopez has pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors will be seeking 1st degree murder charges.

UPDATE 4/25/2015: Lopez was convicted back in March and sentenced to 40 years behind bars earlier this month.

Lenny Dykstra chokes up on his bat in front of women he met on craigslist

Lenny Dykstra

Lenny Dykstra

Lenny Dykstra Accused of Exposing Himself to Women He Met on Craigslist:

I used to be a fan of Lenny Dykstra when he played for the Phillies but once he left I didn’t follow him much. From what I understand he’s had his fair share of controversy since then. I think this one tops them all.

Dykstra is accused of exposing himself in his Los Angeles home to several women that he allegedly met on craigslist. It wasn’t any of the usual dark corners of craigslist where Dykstra placed the ad. according to police Dykstra placed an ad on craigslist looking for a housekeeper/personal assistant. Dykstra allegedly told the women that the job would entail massages at which point Dykstra is alleged to have exposed himself. This is one step above the guys who pretend they need their diapers changed.

What’s a matter Lenny? Are you that broke that you can’t find yourself a gold digger?

It just goes to show even if you’re semi-famous you can still be a craigslist creep.

UPDATE 9/8/2011: Dykstra has pleaded not guilty and is looking at a year in county.

UPDATE 4/19/2012: Lenny got nine months in jail and three years probation after pleading no contest. During his probation he’ll be banned from using any social sites including craigslist.

LAPD bust child trafficker

Leroy Bragg

Leroy Bragg

LAPD seeks more victims in South L.A. teenage prostitution case:

Police in Los Angeles arrested 34-year-old Leroy Bragg after they found him allegedly prostituting a 13-year-old girl. The girl was able to use a cell phone of a good Samaritan to contact her parents who contacted the LAPD. The girl was being held against her will so Bragg is being charged with kidnapping as well.

LAPD discovered in their investigation that Bragg was also holding a 14-year-old girl against her will and forcing her into prostitution as well. They believe that Bragg may have had dozens more victims.

Anyone with information is asked to call LAPD Det. Hector Sanchez at (213) 486-0957. After hours they can call 1-877-LAPD-24-7. For those wishing to remain anonymous, the Crime Stoppers number is (800) 222-TIPS, or (800) 222-8477.

Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most key pads) using a cellphone. All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”

And you may think that only the children that are being prostituted are being held against their and you would be wrong. Many adult women are also held against their will by traffickers and pimps and are kept that way through violence, rapes and threats. By soliciting a prostitute you are giving these criminals more ways to keep these women against their will.

L.A. man charged with MySpace kidnapping and sex assault

Police: Girl Sexually Assaulted by Man She Met on MySpace:

13-year-old girl allegedly kidnapped, assaulted by man she met on MySpace:

Police in Los Angeles arrested 35-year-old Samuel Francisco (yes kids, his name is Sam Francisco) for allegedly kidnapping and sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl that he met on MySpace.

Police say that Fransisco lured the girl away from her middle school and took her to another location where she was sexually assaulted.

Apparently L.A. takes this kind of thing very seriously as the Internet Crimes Against Children Unit, Major Crimes Detectives, Secret Service Agents and Immigration Custom Enforcement Officers all went to Fransisco’s residence to get the girl back and to arrest Francisco. That must have been the biggest can of whupass on the other side of his door.

Fransisco may have had other victims as well.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) Internet Crimes Against Children Unit, Lieutenant Andrea Grossman at (562) 624-4028 or 1-877-LAPD-24-7.

MySpace predator with ludicrous alibi gets no prison time

No Prison Time for MySpace Predator:

I originally posted about Kevin Dale Pierce here. Back in 2007 the then 33-year-old Pierce was arrested for posing as a 19-year-old art student from UCLA soliciting nude pictures from underage girls over MySpace. When he was arrested he told police he did not believe he was breaking the law as long as he did not meet the girls in person. Because apparently he thinks that California must not have child pornography laws.

And it seems that they may not as Riverside Superior Court Judge Mark Mandio gave Pierce probation after he pleaded guilty to…

…two counts each of annoying or molesting a child under 18 years old and communicating with a minor with the intent to commit a specified offense and 25 counts of bringing into the state matter depicting a child sexually.

When he was first arrested police sound they found several external hard drives yet all he gets is probation. See Canada, I’m not just picking on you.

So this scumbag poses as a 19-year-old ‘art student’ to get nude pics from underage girls and all he gets is probation. Good job Judge Mark Mandio, you set loose another dangerous predator back on the internet.

Felon accused of pimping out children

Man accused of running child prostitution scheme:

28-year-old convicted felon Aaron Pierre Brown of Hayward, California is accused of pimping out two teenage girls on craigslist. The girls had been in an L.A. area group home. Brown allegedly beat the girls and took explicit photos of them for the craigslist ads.

Yet some people who want to be able to pay for sex will argue that these two girls aren’t victims of prostitution.

It’s not illegal if I don’t meet them in person

Man Arrested For Nude Pics Of Girls On MySpace:

Another creep arrested for MySpace misdeeds. The subject in question is one Kevin Dale Pierce from the City of Angels. The 33-year-old Pierce was arrested for convincing teenage girls to send him nude pictures of themselves. Several external hard drives were found when police searched his house. How many girls did he contact top have that many hard drives? Pierce claimed to be a 19-year-old art student from UCLA.

The investigation started in January, when a Temecula resident reported that her 14-year-old daughter was swapping notes with someone who claimed to be a 19-year-old art student at UCLA, DeLuna said.

The two started an online relationship last November and, after several weeks, established a bond of trust, according to the sergeant. The suspect persuaded the girl to send photos of herself in various stages of undress, purportedly for an art project, DeLuna said.

The girl’s mother noticed her daughter’s computer screen and read messages from the suspect asking for additional pictures in varied poses, DeLuna said.

The woman told a deputy that the e-mail she spotted was from someone who called himself “kev pie” and thanked the girl for pictures she had sent him, according to an affidavit for a search warrant.

The e-mailer then requested that the girl send some more snapshots and wrote, “Is there any way you can also take the exact same angles, straight from behind and from the 45 degree side … but on the floor instead of standing? so I can draw the legs and the body bent in shape,” the affidavit states.

The mother did not know what the e-mail referred to and asked her daughter about it.

The girl later told investigators that she informed the person she was corresponding with that she was 14 years old. She told detectives that she and the suspect began chatting on “I Chat” after meeting on MySpace.com, according to the affidavit.

Investigators tracked down Pierce’s ISP address, accessed his MySpace account and determined he was actually 33 and that he had been communicating with at least 10 other girls, persuading them to send nude photos of themselves, police allege.

The best part is Pierce’s explanation.

“He seemed pretty eager to try to clear his name,” DeLuna said, adding that Pierce told them he did not believe he was breaking the law as long as he did not meet the girls in person.

I would love to have seen the cops’ faces when he told them that.

I could not find a definitive MySpace for Pierce.

L.A. police chases

L.A. Police Chief proposes ban on most police car chases:

Which is actually not a bad idea but what got me was this quote from an ACLU spokesperson…

“Some of these high-speed pursuits have resulted in harm and even death to innocent bystanders,” said Ramona Ripston, executive director of the ACLU of Southern California. “It’s an ongoing problem and it’s about time the Police Commission changed its policy.”

Is it me or is she blaming the police for these pursuits? If it wasn’t for the people breaking the law and fleeing from the police there wouldn’t be police chases.
