DECATUR, GA – Anthony Stokes received a life-saving heart transplant two years ago despite the teen initially being denied because of his behavior. On Tuesday afternoon he was killed during a high-speed car chase with police.
Stokes suffered from a dilated cardiomyopathy and was given less than a year to live. The condition causes his heart to pump blood insufficiently, and can lead to irregular heartbeats, blood clots or heart failure.
Doctors at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta removed him off the heart recipient list because of “non-compliance.” At the time, doctors stated this was because he did not take his medication regularly and felt he would not follow the post transplant medication regimen.
His mother went to the media claiming the hospital took her son off the list because they were stereotyping him as a troubled teen. Despite the fact that Stokes had low grades at school, had brushes with the law, and wore a court-ordered monitoring device, his mother said he was a good kid.
National media coverage and pressure from civil rights groups lead to the hospital giving the kid a new heart in August 2013.…
Earlier this month, a woman returned home to find someone had broke into her home and made off with a smart TV, a Wi-Fi Blu-ray, laptop computer, and a surround sound system.
A few days later the woman noticed someone was watching movies using her Netflix account. She contacted police who were able to trace the IP address to the home of Alexander.
Aside from finding Alexander inside the home, police also located all of the woman’s stolen electronics. Alexander was subsequently arrested and charged with with burglary. He’s currently being held on $75,000 bail.
Alexander isn’t the first thief whose own stupidity was largely responsible for them getting busted. Hell, he’s not even the dumbest.
We had one idiot who who posted a picture on Facebook of himself holding the name plate he pried off the door of a judge. Another moron, and one of favorites, used his own phone to call the issuing bank of a stolen credit card to ask how much credit remained.…
COLUMBUS, GA- Police arrested 26-year-old Domonique Smith after they say he broke into a funeral home to crack open a cold one, and to steal a bike.
Police responded to Hills Watson Peoples Funeral Service after receiving a call that the facility had been broken into. Police would identify Smith on surveillance video in the building at the time of the burglary.
Initially, the only thing amiss was the disappearance of a bicycle. But things got a lot creepier when it was determined that the corpse of a woman at the funeral home had been disturbed.
“The results of our investigation and the forensic examination gave us probable cause to believe that this individual had indeed sexually assaulted a dead body,” said Columbus Police Maj. Gil Slouchick.
Smith, who is homeless on top of being a corpse fucker, was located inside an abandoned building with the bicycle from the funeral home, stolen TVs and firearms.
He has been arrested and pleaded guilty to burglary, entering an unoccupied dwelling, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and theft by receiving stolen property.…
PRAIRIE TOWNSHIP, OH – Three teens are facing murder charges after their friend was shot and killed by a woman inside the home he was attempting to rob.
According to police, 17-year-old Reb Barbee and three friends planned to break into the home of a childhood friend he’d had a falling out with.
Barbee entered the home early Sunday morning through an upstairs window wearing an Insane Clown Posse mask and armed with a knife. His accomplices, Tyler Blazer and Brandon Hamilton, both 17, and Adam Pickens, 18, stayed outside as lookouts.
Heather Tackett woke up when she heard noises inside her home so she grabbed her boyfriend’s .38-caliber revolver and went to investigate. When she checked in her son’s room, she found a masked Barbee standing over her son holding a knife.
Tackett, unaware that the masked intruder was her son’s childhood friend who used to sleepover, screamed and fired one shot at Barbee, who then fled the home suffering from a single gunshot wound to the back.
His accomplices, being the geniuses they are, used a computer chair to wheel Barbee back to his home a half mile away.…
LONG BEACH, CA – A home burglary turned to shit for two people after the 80-year-old homeowner walked in on them and ended up shooting a woman to death.
Tom Greer said he came home Tuesday night to find a man and woman inside his home. Greer said they both tackled him and jumped on top of him before robbing his safe of thousands of dollars.
What the couple didn’t know was that Greer was not defenseless… he had a .22 caliber Smith and Wesson revolver in his pocket. The pair ran from the home when they saw Greer was armed, but the woman wasn’t quick enough.
After firing at her in an alley behind his house, Greer said the woman stumbled and then begged for her life. “She says, ‘Don’t shoot me, I’m pregnant! I’m going to have a baby!’ And I shot her anyway,” Greer said.
When asked what happened next, Greer said he shot the woman a second time. “She was dead. I shot her twice, she best be dead … (The man) had run off and left her,” he said.…
San Jose, CA — Victor Manzanares, 39, is facing multiple charges after allegedly entering a family’s home and inappropriately touching their two young daughters before attempting to burn their house down.
Officers responded to the home Monday, after receiving several reports of a naked man running rampant through the neighborhood.
While cops were combing the neighborhood, a butt nekkid Manzanares reportedly entered the home through an unlocked door. Once inside, police say, he walked into the bedroom of a 10-year-old girl and got all touchy-feely.
“He came into my room… he kissed my cheek, I thought it was my dad, and then he lied next to my bed and tried to touch my bum,” the girl said.
Not sure what caused Manzaneres to exit the room, but he soon wandered into the living room where a 12-year-old girl was napping.
“I was on the couch taking a nap,” the girl said. “I was in deep sleep when the man licked my face and I freaked out.”
The two girls rounded up their little brother and beat feet out of the house. …
Little Falls, MN – Back in 2012 we reported on 64-year-old Byron Smith, the man who shot two teenagers to death on Thanksgiving Day as they broke into his home.
He was convicted of their murder the other day and now the courts have released the tapes jurors heard that helped them send Smith to prison for the rest of his life.
For those of you who may have missed this story, Nicholas Schaeffel and Haile Kifer were both shot to death when they broke into the home of Byron Smith.
While Minnesota does allow for someone to use deadly force to prevent a felony from taking place in one’s home or dwelling, Byron was charged with a crime because of the things he did before shooting the teens.
Aside from moving his truck to make it look as if he wasn’t home, he setup a hiding spot in his basement and waited for the teens to show up. He even had a tarp ready that he used to wrap up their bullet-ridden bodies.…
GUILTY! OFF WITH HER HEAD!
It all started when Cameo Crispi’s ex called police on March 14 to complain that he had received numerous texts and phone calls from her within the range of one hour, and he really wanted her to knock it the fuck off already. He also told police he didn’t want Crispi at his home. Crispi. Heh.
An officer was dispatched to the man’s home and found smoke pouring out the front door. Inside, an “impaired” Crispi.
When the officer stepped inside the man’s home, he noticed a wood stove left open with a fire burning inside and hot coals on the floor around the stove. And on the kitchen stove, claimed the officer, there was a cookie sheet with about a pound of bacon on it. Now, bear with me, people….. this part of the story is extremely difficult for me.…
That’s it. I have heard it all. Time to shut off the internet. Well, maybe after I finish this story….
The dick slapping incident apparently occurred sometime early Tuesday morning. A man living in the home told police he heard a knock at the door at about 3:00 that morning, and when he answered, was confronted by two males holding guns. Real guns, ya perverts.
Anyway, the two unidentified males entered the home and demanded cash. When the man who answered the door came up dry, the suspects apparently busted into a bedroom occupied by the man’s 33-year-old daughter-in-law.
Authorities say one of the men held a gun to the woman’s head and demanded money. When the woman stated she had none, one of the two whipped out his Johnson and began hitting her in the face with it. And while he’s at it, he’s yelling, “*censored* give me the money.” No word on whether the member was flaccid or at full attention.…
Authorities claim 18-year-old Brandon Davis, apparently high on some sort of synthetic drug, attacked his neighbor early Sunday morning, biting the man on his face, hands and neck while yelling something about eating the man’s eyeballs.
The victim, 54-year-old Nick Sorace, told police he heard a commotion at about 2:00 a.m. Sunday, and when he looked out the window to see what all the fuss was about, he witnessed Davis beating a dog.
“He thought the dog was the devil,” Sorace said. “And then the next thing he sees is me, illuminated — and all of a sudden, I’m the devil.”
Davis apparently kicked in Sorace’s front door, chased a woman through the house and out the back door, then returned. He started beating and biting Sorace, continuing with his “You’re the Devil” spiel.
“He broke a flower pot over my head, he was sticking me in the neck with pieces…he stuck his thumb all the way in my eye socket and he just ripped my mouth and he bit my face.…
SHREVEPORT, LA – Police say 16-year-old Devon Antonio pushed his luck too far when he decided to rob a 63-year-old woman a second time, and ended up dead after the woman shot him in the chest.
Police say the teen broke into the woman’s home carrying a shotgun and demanding money from her safe. The woman said she recognized Antonio as the same person who robbed her of some money and a gun just a few weeks prior.
She said she feared for her life because the teen was pointing a shotgun at her demanding money, and she knew her safe only contained around $55 dollars in coins.
“As I was unlocking the safe I prayed to God to give me strength, to get through this, it’ll be me or him,” she said.
It is said that God helps those who helps themselves, and this woman helped herself tremendously when she replaced the gun stolen previously and had made the decision to store it inside the safe. She removed the gun from the safe with one hand while taking the bag of coins with the other.…
PORTLAND, OR – A man armed with a shotgun got a bit more than he bargained for after he broke into an apartment during an attempt to rob the people inside.
After 38-year-old Joshua McCoy successfully broke down the front door of the residence, while wielding a pistol-grip shotgun , he demanded money from the residents.
But a quick thinking 20-year-old foiled McCoy’s robbery attempt after he grabbed the shotgun from McCoy and then pushed his ass down a flight of stairs. McCoy ended up hitting his head on the way down and was knocked unconscious.
The 20-year-old and his mother’s boyfriend called police and stood watch over McCoy until law enforcement arrived and took McCoy into custody. After a quick trip to the hospital, McCoy was taken to jail and charged with first-degree robbery, second-degree robbery and first-degree burglary.…
Santa Maria, CA — Look at that mug, people. Does that look like the face of crazy? The kind of crazy that would break into your home, steal your shit and kill your cat after a breakup? Meet 43-year-old Nellie Palacios — from what police are saying, yes, she is that kind of crazy.
According to police, on the afternoon of January 2, Palacios, accompanied by her new boyfriend, entered her ex-boyfriend’s home and started grabbing paintings from the walls and stashed ‘em in her car. She also apparently choked the man’s cat a bit before stabbing it with a kitchen knife.
The new boyfriend, who apparently believed he was at a home of one of the woman’s cousins, called police to report the woman’s erratic behavior. I’m assuming he got a little wigged out once the stabbing commenced….
When police arrived on scene, the new boyfriend informed them he had primarily been outside while Palacios was robbing the place, but did admit to seeing Palacios stab the cat and stash the body in an igloo type doghouse in the yard.…

Police say Kingery was left with three stab wounds on his arm, as well as lacerations to the chest, right arm and neck.
Webster then reportedly grabbed something from the house and ran off.
Just a few blocks down the street, police say, Webster started running along a double set of train tracks. According to a witness waiting for the train to pass, Webster crossed one set of tracks without issue. When he tried to jump between the cars rumbling down the second set of tracks, well, he went and got himself all broken.…
STPAUL, MN – A teen has been sentenced to 25 years in prison after he raped an elderly woman in revenge for her having him thrown in jail for burglarizing her home.
Curtez Graham was only 16 when he was convicted of burglarizing a 65-year-old woman’s home on two separate occasion in 2011. He was sentenced to Boys Totem Town before being sent to a juvenile correctional facility. While on a 10-day work furlough in June of last year, Graham removed the ankle bracelet monitoring his activities and paid the woman a visit.
He entered the woman’s home for a third time after breaking out a window, and headed to her bedroom on the third floor where she and her male companion were sleeping. They were awakened by Graham as he stood naked in the bedroom brandishing a pair of scissors.
“Bitch, you sent me to prison for 14 months,” he reportedly said before threatening to kill them unless they did what he said. After forcing the man to tie himself up, he raped the woman in front of him.…
POUGHKEEPSIE, NY – A 20-year-old suspected serial burglar has been accused of murdering a 99-year-old woman in her home.
Late Friday night, police charged Javon Tyrek Rogers with the murder of Fannie Gumbinger. A home aid worker found Gumbinger dead inside her home early Wednesday.
Police have not released exactly how Gumbinger died, aside from saying that she suffered multiple injuries.
Investigators were on the scene for two days collecting evidence before finally homing in on Rogers. Turns out that Rogers may be connected to a string of burglaries in the area, including one that happened just hours after Gumbinger’s murder, a half-mile from her home.
Rogers has been charged with first-degree murder and first-degree burglary. He is being held without bond in the Dutchess County Jail.
Friends of Gumbinger called her “sharp as a tack”, whose only ailments were a bad leg and hip that kept her confined to her home and in need of home healthcare workers.
“I can’t imagine why people would have gone into that house, other than the fact that she was a defenseless old lady,” said Gumbinger’s niece.…
OHIO – Police got to do a little fishing while on duty after a suspected burglar tried eluding police and ended up drowning in a pond.
At around 5:00 a.m. Sunday morning, a residence in the 9000 block of Swigert Road called police to report a possible theft in progress. They said a suspicious man was in the area loading items into the back of a pickup truck.
When police got to the location, they spotted the truck fleeing the scene. Police gave chase and followed the truck as it drove into a nearby field. When the truck got stuck the driver, 26-year-old Jeffrey Felix, ran from the vehicle and toward a pond.
While searching for Felix, police heard someone yelling from the pond and spotted him in the middle of the pond struggling to stay above water. Before officers could help him, Felix disappeared under the water where he breathed in a fatal dose of karma.
A few hours later, the Hamilton County Task Force One dive team would pull Felix’s body from the pond while officers pulled stolen property from inside his vehicle.…
LOUISVILLE, KY – I know times are tough for some, but come on. Police have arrested two people who used a 3-year-old to steal a wallet at a local church.
On June 23, 26-year-old Allen Scott Hamilton drove 26-year-old Kimberly Mills and her 3-year-old daughter to the Faith Community Church while a religious service was taking place. According to the arrest warrant, Mills used this opportunity to enter an “employees only” area of the church.
Once inside, Mills allegedly instructed her 3-year-old to take a wallet from one of the church offices. Luckily, the church’s pastor, Richard Pearson, walked into the office and caught them red-handed. Mills tried telling the pastor that her daughter had found the wallet, but that didn’t explain why Mills was holding the victim’s credit cards in her hand.
Not too happy having the roles reversed, Mills and her daughter were escorted out of the church where they got into a car driven by Hamilton. Before they drove off, the victim was able to get their license plate number. …
