In The Mean Time...
George County Sheriff Dean Howell said they received an anonymous 911 call Tuesday night concerning a man who had set his dog on fire and was “going psycho while crazy on meth.”
According to police, when they arrived at Pierce’s residence, they found a small breed dog on fire and Pierce in his bedroom acting erratically. He told officers he “wanted to help the dog go to heaven.” Pierce has a rather odd definition for the word “help” as police say he doused the dog with a flammable liquid and then set it on fire.
I can only speculate he truly was on meth when his drug-addled brain felt this was a good idea, or people need to be real careful asking this guy for any kind of assistance in the future.
Surprisingly, the dog survived and was transported to the George County Animal Hospital. Aside from having the tip of its nose burned off, the dog may also lose its eyesight, ears, and a front leg.…Continue Reading
MOORE, OK – Two men were arrested Tuesday night, accused of looting from a Moore neighborhood hit by the EF-5 tornado that killed at least 24 people..
A homeowner called police after returning to his home to find two men going through the rubble of his house. When he asked what the hell they were doing, they stated they were searching for survivors. Unfortunately, they weren’t talking about human beings trapped underneath debris, they were talking about valuable items not destroyed by the tornado.
According to the homeowner who found the men in his house, he found some of his belongings in the suspects’ pockets. When police arrived at the scene, they found the men with a bag full of items the two had reportedly stolen from destroyed homes in the neighborhood.
Police have not identified the suspects at this time, much to many people’s dismay, but the video below shows both of them being arrested and sparked a long series of racists comments regarding their ethnicity. To combat the looting issue, the Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner is working on a badge system that will issue badges to residents that allow them to enter neighborhoods damaged by the tornado.…Continue Reading
Charlotte, NC – A woman in North Carolina had her juvenile son arrested for allegedly stealing her Pop-Tarts.
According to the Charlotte Observer, the woman called police on Monday to report that her Pop-Tarts had been stolen from her home. She also told them that her son was the theif and that she wanted him arrested.
Since Charlotte’s crime rate is -6.7% lower in March than it was the same time last year, a bored police officer obliged and placed the kid under juvenile arrest. He’s been charged with larceny/misdemeanor and will appear in juvenile court.
One of the boy’s neighbors laughed when informed he’d been arrested for stealing his mother’s Pop-Tarts. “He seems real nice to me. I mean, he is real respectful,” said the neighbor. Another neighbor told reporters that the food in her house is there for her kids. “It would be nice if they asked, but they don’t. They are kids,” they said.
While the boy’s mother declined to comment, the arrest report stated the mother has been having ongoing discipline issues with her son, so she decided to use this incident to teach him a lesson.…Continue Reading
Los Angeles, CA – LAPD officer Miguel Schiappapietra, with six years on the force, has been charged with allegedly luring two girls under the age of 10 into his home and committing lewd acts with them.
Not a lot of details on this story, but Schiappapietra had just moved into his new home with his wife and three young children five weeks prior to his arrest on Saturday. It’s not known how Schiappapietra was able to lure the girls into his home, or how his actions were discovered.
Neighbor Tim Rossi told CBS reporters, “You know, having children of my own and knowing there are other children in this neighborhood…I had no idea it was going on down there. It’s very disturbing”. It’s particularly disturbing considering this man’s profession, but it wouldn’t be the first time a perv made the force.
In any event, he was booked and charged on Saturday at his home, and as of Monday evening was still being held on $100,000 bail. He has been placed on paid vacation, I mean, paid administrative leave, pending the results of both a criminal and internal affairs investigation.…Continue Reading

Plainfield, NJ – A 55-year-old New Jersey woman is recovering in the hospital after being viciously attacked by two American bulldogs on Saturday.
The woman was walking down the street when the two 5-year-old dogs, named Max and Marley, escaped from an unlocked fence and began attacking her.
Most of the attack was captured on video and shows the woman on the ground trying to defend herself while the two dogs alternate biting her.
You can also see as the owner of the dogs, along with passerbys, try everything from hitting the dogs with sticks, honking horns, and physically drag the dogs away from the woman – to no avail
When police showed up to the scene, the dogs were still attacking the woman so the officers fired five shots, killing both dogs. Plainfield Police Captain Ed Santiago said he had no issues with the officers’ decision to act.
“The next bite of a dog like that could have been a jugular. It could have killed her,” he said. “They weren’t even paying attention to their owner.”
Neighbors said it wasn’t the first time the dogs had gotten loose.…Continue Reading
BANGOR, Maine – Police have charged 20-year-old Kyle Dube with the murder of Nichole Cable, the 15-year-old who has been missing since Mother’s Day.
According to the girl’s mother, Cable was last seen near her home before she went to meet Dube, whom she met through Facebook. Dozens of law enforcement officers, using aircraft and dogs, and hundreds of civilian volunteers, spent days searching for Cable.
On the Wednesday following her disappearance, Cable’s mother pleaded for her daughter’s return during a press conference.
“I would like to say, ‘Nichole, we love you and if you’re scared because you ran away — you’re not in trouble. It’s OK,’” Kristine Wiley said. “If somebody has her — I don’t care [what happened] — take her to a gas station or a park. I don’t know what else to say. I’m waiting for you to call me and I love you.”
The day after Cable was reported missing, Dube posted the following to his Facebook regarding his girlfriend, who is not Cable:
“OK so I don’t with the droma.…Continue Reading
DAYTON, IA – The search for 15-year-old Kathlynn Shepard is still ongoing after she and a 12-year-old girl were both abducted by 42-year-old Michael Klunder, a registered sex offender who committed suicide hours after the younger girl escaped.
Authorities say Klunder abducted the two girls after they got off a school bus on Monday, luring the girls into his truck with the promise of them making money cutting grass. He then took the girls to a hog confinement farm about 15 miles south of Dayton.
There’s not a lot of details regarding what happened once the girls were at the farm, but the younger girl somehow managed to escape Klunder and make a run for it. She ended up at a neighboring farm where two men found the girl as she was crawling to them underneath a wire fence.
She was wearing shorts and a T-shirt, but had no shoes. She also had a thick zip tie cable around one of her wrists that one of the men cut free before grabbing a gun and running towards the hog confinement facility.…Continue Reading
U.S. District Judge Marco A. Hernandez, who sent Barnett back to the Oregon State Penitentiary with the extra time, feels Barnett ”…has significant personality issues that remain unresolved.” Assistant U.S. Attorney John N. Parmley, a prosecutor called in from San Diego after the previous prosecutor fell victim to Barnett’s mischief, said of Barnett “The longer he stays in a controlled environment, the safer society will be.”
So what kind of douche-devilry draws such dire damnation? What manner of malevolence manifests such maligning? Threatening letters, anthrax hoaxes and poop… not necessarily in that order. Oh, and there’s even a torrid love affair with a not-really-hot-white-supremacist-spree-killer in there for you women folk.
Barnett’s streak starts back in 2008. Barnett, already in jail, mailed threatening letters to Washington County Sheriff Rob Gordon and three of his deputies. In August 2011, Barnett was moved to Portland’s Justice Center Jail, where he allegedly hurled a mixture of urine and feces at the face of Multnomah County Sheriff’s Deputy Brett S.…Continue Reading
Boulder, CO – The Smoking Gun is reporting that 21-year-old Taylor Powers had to be rescued from a Colorado mountain after she ingested hallucinogenic mushrooms, stripped off all of her clothes, and began fighting with friends.
On Sunday, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office says they received a 911 call that a female hiker in Chautauqua Park was “high on mushrooms and in distress.” A total of 35 personnel from the BCSO, Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks, Boulder Fire Rescue, the Rocky Mountain Rescue Group, and an American Medical Rescue ambulance were dispatched to the location.
Rescuers found Powers, a University of Colorado undergrad, nude and being detained by two classmates. Rescuers had to handcuff Powers because she was continuing to struggle, and it took several rescuers to secure her inside a rescue basket.
Nearly two hours after first the first call was made, Powers was brought off the mountain and transported to a Boulder hospital, where she was treated and released. Taylor “Buzzkill” Powers was eventually cited for unlawful consumption of a controlled substance and “further charges are pending against others involved,” deputies reported.…Continue Reading
BATTLEBORO, NC – Tiara Drake has been accused of trying to poison five of her family members after one of them refused to share some cheese with her.
According to reports, the 24-year-old wanted some of a relative’s cheese on Friday, but the woman refused to give her any. In retaliation for not being given any cheese, Drake waited until the next morning and used a concoction of detergent, window cleaner and a household cleanser to poison the cheese.
When the rest of the family woke up and began to eat the cheese with their breakfast, one of them determined it was tainted and Poison Control was called. Police say medics had four of the family members drink milk to counteract the effects of the chemicals.
Drake seems to be having ongoing issues with her family, with some posts hinting that this latest cheese incident was just the straw that broke the came’s back.
“man i got alot goin on in my mind,” Drake posted on her Facebook page on March 31.…Continue Reading

Glorieta, New Mexico - Selena Velasquez, 17, is in hot water after being accused of trying to extort $1500 out of a 43-year-old man she allegedly had consensual sex with.
Velasquez met the man at a Cinco de Mayo party, and the two engaged in some casual sex. After their whirlwind rendezvous, Velasquez supposedly told the man she would call the police and claim he raped her if he didn’t give her three payments of $500 over the next three Fridays.
She then went all psycho on his ass and started showing up at his work, as well sending him text messages threatening violence on him and his daughter. The man contacted police who had him call her to get audio recording where they heard “the suspect clearly threatened and extorted the victim.”
The man agreed to pay Velasquez and made plans to meet at a local Wal-Mart where he would give her the first payment. Instead of $500 bucks, she was welcomed by a swarm of police officers and was arrested at the scene.…Continue Reading

Chicago, IL – Cook County prosecutors say Scandale Fritz, 16, Kenneth Brown, 15, and Justin Applewhite, 16, raped a 12-year-old girl at gunpoint, then posted a video of the sexual assault on their Facebook pages.
It happened in December of last year when the victim went to Fritz’s home to talk to him. Once inside, the girl said that Brown and Applewhite were also there and that Brown had a gun in his pocket.
Fritz took the girl into the basement were he raped and sodomized her. He then ordered her to have sex with the other two teens. She refused, but later complied because she was scared Brown would kill her.
The girl “knew that all three defendants were gang members of the Black Disciples faction ‘Tay-Town’ and was fearful that [Brown] would shoot her,” Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Bridget O’Brien said.
Tt’s quite common for teens to videotape their illegal activities so they can then share them online, and these teens were no exception. This particular video shows Brown waving a gun in the air while the girl performs a sex act, and all three shouting gang slogans, prosecutors said.…Continue Reading
The incident happened in an off-campus house rented by Andrea Rebello, her twin sister and two other students. Sometime around 2am, Rebello’s boyfriend went outside to move a car, reportedly to avoid a parking ticket. It was during this time that 30-year-old Dalton Smith, dressed in black and wearing a ski mask, entered the house. Smith, a parolee with an extensive rap sheet that includes attempted robbery, weapons possession, assault and being an all-around charming fella, was armed.
He ordered Rebello, her twin sister Jessica and a third woman onto a couch. He did the same to Rebello’s boyfriend when he returned and demanded valuables from the four. I’m going to go out on a limb at this point and say Dalton likely never went to college: he was unsatisfied with what the four produced. I don’t know how much you could expect to fleece a few college students for, but I wouldn’t have expected more than a few beers and some dental dams.…Continue Reading
Philadelphia, PA – Police arrested 26-year-old Attifa Brown inside her daughter’s school after she allegedly assaulted an 11-year-old girl she says has been bullying her daughter.
Brown says while she did go to A.B. Anderson Elementary School with her daughter to confront the other girl, she says she never touched her. ”I don’t beat my own child, let alone somebody else’s,” said Brown.
“The problem here is that we have a 26-year-old mother who has no reason to approach an 11-year-old child, so her credibility as far as I’m concerned is shot,” said Lt. John Walker, Philadelphia Police.
Besides, they say there is video of the incident. According to the 11-year-old victim’s mother, it shows Brown “over my daughter for minutes, poking her in the face, pulling her hair and beating her,” said Bobby Webster.
Brown is facing a myriad of charges, including terroristic threats, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and defiant trespass. School officials are looking into how Brown was able to walk into the school without signing in or without being questioned.…Continue Reading
Orem, UT – A father in Utah got so pissed off at two men who solicited his teenage daughters for sex that he helped arrange a sting that got both of the men arrested.
It happened on Wednesday when the man’s two daughters, ages 14 and 16, were walking through a Macey’s parking lot and were propositioned by 27-year-old Alexander Navidad-Hernandez.
After driving up beside them, he asked the girls if they needed money. He then handed them a five dollar bill with a phone number written on it, telling them to call the number if they needed more dough.
Frightened with their encounter, the girls hurried home and immediately told their father what had happened. Pissed, the father had the oldest daughter call the number to find out exactly what they had to do for the money.
Not surprisingly, the man wanted sex. When the girl agreed to $100, Navidad-Hernandez said that was too high and that he would only pay $30, as would a friend of his who wanted to participate. The girl said she would call him back, which she did, but only after her father had called the Oren police department.…Continue Reading

Regardless, the couple were handed Domestic Violence packets and Harrison was arrested on charges of misdemeanor domestic battery.…Continue Reading
ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Would-be kidnapper David Jesus Hernandez is in custody after a New Mexico mother, alerted by a group of teenagers that he’d just taken her 4-year-old daughter, chased the man down, ramming his vehicle with her own.
The woman, who wasn’t identified, apparently didn’t know that the 31-year-old kidnapper had shoved the girl out of the car before the chase began.
“Albuquerque police Chief Ray Schultz said neighbors began yelling, which is what made the suspect push the child out of his car,” KOAT TV reported.
KQRE reported that the mother was in contact with Albuquerque police during the hot-civilian-pursuit, which started shortly after six p.m. on Indian School Rd, near the family’s apartment.
The chase lasted all the way through the North Valley and finished in the Southeast Heights, when the feisty mom went all Grand-Child-Theft-Auto on Hernandez, and slammed her car into his. Hernandez abandoned his vehicle and fled on foot.
Police launched a manhunt which included more than two dozen officers going door-to-door in efforts to locate Hernandez, as well as a helicopter equipped with heat-seeking capabilities.…Continue Reading
