…three guns, several ballistic vests, a Kevlar helmet, ammunition, miscellaneous law enforcement badges and a tactical baton…
That’s not even the scariest part of this story. Much like in the vein of Nancy Lanza and Oregon’s own Laurel Harper, it was the boy’s own mother who is said to have bought the guns and vests for him off of craigslist.
Before we get to the obvious questions let me address the craigslist aspect. According to craigslist’s own list of prohibited items, guns are not supposed to be sold on their website. Since they don’t actually moderate their site it goes on anyway. I bet you they would have changed that policy if this kid had killed someone. Craigslist are the kings of closing the barn door after the horses have gotten out.
Now on to the question that’s on all of our minds. What kind of person would buy guns, more than likely illegally, and bulletproof vests for their 15-year-old. What in the blue hell did she think he was going to use them for? Most importantly, why has she not been arrested?
Too many people who don’t deserve the title of parent are coddling these special snowflakes who are nothing less than psychopaths and being excused of the actions that they helped initiate.
Ronald Leistiko of Tigard, Oregon was the first alleged craigslist rapist that I remember posting about. I now have to say alleged because his rape convictions were overturned back in back in July. Originally Leistiko was convicted of raping two women he met on craigslist and acquitted of a third. The convictions were overturned because of the victims who testified never brought charges against him.
Now the Oregon State Supreme Court has upheld all his other convictions except for the rape convictions. That means that Leistiko is still guilty of sex abuse, strangulation, kidnap, assault, delivery of cocaine, furnishing liquor to a minor and prostitution.
Leistiko is not out of the woods yet. He could be retried for the rapes or prosecutors could try to get him to plea out. Personally I hope they go back to trial. Everything I’ve read about Leistiko just screams scumbag and I think they could easily score another conviction. If they offer a plea deal I’m sure it will be for less than the pitiful 25 years he got originally.
Last week his convictions were overturned. The Oregon Supreme Court ruled that one of his victims should not have been allowed to testify. That victim was a masseuse advertising in craigslist but was not a ‘happy ending’ type of masseuse. The court ruled that since charges were never filed from this victim that she should not have been allowed to testify at Leistiko’s trial.
So now the case will head back to Washington County and possibly also Clackamas County where prosecutors are eager to try him again. One prosecutor even said that there was a victim that was hesitant to come forward then but that they hope will change her mind now.
Hopefully Leistiko’s gamble will not pay off and he’ll be sentenced for more than the lousy 25 years he got and get a more lengthy sentence that he deserves.
One of the worst craigslist sex crimes I’ve posted about was the sex ring out of Newberg, Oregon that not only involved animals but also children as young as 4. Previously the ringleader, Darrin Daily, was sentenced to 40 years which of course doesn’t seem near enough. Now his cohort, Robert Thompson has also been sentenced.
Thompson was not only convicted for his role in the ring but also for trying to arrange a hit on one of their teenage victims. So what did Mr. Dead Behind The Eyes get? Only 25 years.
We’re talking about children being forced to have sex with animals here. Something that depraved should at least get an automatic life sentence without parole. In a perfect world it would result in execution. He could have been sentenced to 40 years but for some reason the judge took leniency on him. Leniency for a guy who gets off on kids and dogs having sex.
Not only does this show what’s still wrong with craigslist but also our justice system in general.
I originally posted about Darrin Daily here and here. He’s the filthy scum who was caught running a child sex ring on craigslist in Newberg, Oregon. In his little circle Daily and his cronies would have sex (child rape) with kids as young as 4 and would sometimes force the kids to have sex with his dog. Daily would recruit new members for his group on craigslist.
This week he pleaded to the charges against him. The plea deal allowed him to be sentenced from 20 to 40 years, His attorney argued that he should only get 20 because “Daily would be amenable to sex offender treatment if freed at 64.” Are you shitting me? This guy runs a child porn and rape ring that involved bestiality and a lawyer has the balls to say that he’d be amenable to treatment? There is only one treatment for dregs like this if you ask me and it comes in several calibers.
Thankfully the judge gave him the max of 40 years. Not only that he’s not eligible for any kind of sentencing reduction program. If Daily lives to see the end of his sentence he’ll be 84 when he gets out.
I guess I don’t have to tell you that if craigslist moderated its casual encounters section or allowed a third-party company to monitor the ads this wouldn’t be an issue.
Is it me or does he look like he’s dead behind his eyes.
Anyway, I originally posted about Robert D. Thompson here. He’s accused of being one of the participants in a Newberg, Oregon child sex ring that was organized on craigslist and reportedly involved children as young as 4 being raped and forced to have sex with a dog.
Now Thompson has another charge to worry about as he’s now been charged with allegedly trying to solicit a hit on of the teenage victims of the sex ring. Along with his 11 sex abuse charges he’s had seven murder solicitation charges added. Hopefully that means that he’ll get a real sentence instead of the slaps on the wrists that some of the other suspects in the ring got.
As expected butchering mother and baby hosebeast Korena Roberts has pleaded guilty to the brutal murder of Heather Snively and cutting the unborn baby out of Heather’s womb.
Roberts was sentenced to life in prison without parole and as part as of her plea agreement she will not be able to appeal her sentencing. This plea was made more than likely to keep Roberts off of death row.
Roberts killed Snively after Roberts placed an ad on craigslist for baby clothes. Roberts told her friends and family that she was pregnant and tried to pass off Hetaher Snively’s baby as her own after brutally killing her.
You remember the hosebeast Korena Roberts of Beaverton, Oregon don’t you? Hard to forget a face like that. Anyway if you don’t remember I’ll remind you.
Back in 2009 Roberts allegedly posted an ad on craigslist for baby clothes. Through that ad she met 21-year-old Heather Snively who was pregnant at the time. Roberts gained Snively’s trust and allegedly bludgeoned her to death then cut Heather Snively open in order to steal her unborn baby.
Roberts called paramedics saying that she delivered a baby at home and the baby wasn’t breathing. When Roberts got to the hospital doctors determined that she had not given birth. By that time the baby was also deceased. When police searched Roberts’ home they found Heather Snively’s butchered body in the crawl space.
Now fast forward to this week. It seems her defense attorney tried to get the aggravated murder charges against Roberts dropped so his client wouldn’t have to face the death penalty. I wonder how some attorney’s are able to sleep at night when defending such evil. Anyway the judge would have no part of it rejecting the appeal.
If Roberts does get the death penalty it’s a shame she will die in a much more peaceful way then the torturous way she killed Heather Snively.
Forensic examiners from The Southern Oregon High-Tech Crimes Task Force were inspecting a computer when they discovered explicit MySpace messages sent to a 13-year-old girl. They arrested 36-year-old David Vance Pierce for allegedly sending the messages but he was not the suspect nor was this the crime they were investigating.
The messages from Pierce allegedly offered the 13-year-old girl money for sex.
I’m guessing Pierce didn’t realize that nothing is private on the internet no matter how much you think it is.
