WHO KILLED THE BLACK DAHLIA? (Part Two): Beth…

CLEO SHORT: NOT A  VERY NICE MAN...

CLEO SHORT: NOT A VERY NICE MAN… 

Cleo Short, Elizabeth Short’s father, was a selfish and rigid man, who had little time for anyone who wasn’t of some value to him.

In 1941, when Beth Short was 19 years old, she believed that her father had committed suicide 11 years earlier, but the truth would turn out to be worse. While the family struggled and barely made ends meet, Beth’s father, Cleo, was alive, doing well, and simply wanted to be rid of of them and the financial responsibility of maintaining them. He brazenly contacted Phoebe in 1942, apologized for faking his own suicide in 1929, and, to her astonishment, Cleo asked if he could come back home.

Beth’s mother, Phoebe, was appalled and wanted nothing to do with him, but Beth was young, and her friends in Massachusetts described her as; “movie struck,” so she packed her things into a steamer trunk, and headed for Vallejo, CA., to live with Cleo.

Imagine believing that your father had committed suicide, because the financial pressure of raising a family, during the Great Depression, had been too much for him to handle. Then years later, you discover that he ran like a coward, deserted you and left you all to fend for yourselves, while he lived the good life in California.

The relationship was doomed from the start.

CLEO SHORT SHOWED NO LOVE FOR HIS DAUGHTER, AND LIED ABOUT THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF HIS BREAK FROM THE FAMILY…

Narcissistic Cleo didn’t want Beth to pursue an acting career at all, and would do nothing to help his daughter in that regard, in spite of the fact that his suicide-charade, had likely permanently damaged Beth’s self-esteem.

Cleo was only interested in Beth, as she benefited Cleo.

He insisted she stay at home and keep his house clean for him, as if a 19-year-old girl would embrace such an arrangement.

Beth was young and vibrant, a real head-turner, and one can imagine that she had little, if any, respect for Cleo, considering what he had done to the family. She might have even imagined that the invitation was an attempt, on Cleo’s part, to make amends for abandoning them the way he did.

If she expected any regret or guilt from Cleo, she was bitterly disappointed.

BLACK DAHLIA BROKE

Naturally the sailors stationed at the shipyard, where Cleo worked at the time, were clamoring to ask Beth out on a date. Cleo hated the fact that his daughter garnered so much attention and her popularity angered him. He insisted that she stay at home and clean house.

I doubt if a beautiful, well-traveled young woman in her prime, would want to play housekeeper, to the arrogant old fool who ruined her life.

There is little doubt that Cleo’s act of cowardice, which forced the women to struggle considerably for years, was the subject of many a shouting match.

It makes you wonder what Cleo used as an excuse for his behavior, and where he got the nerve to ask Beth to stay home and clean his house for him.

BLACK DAHLIA CRIME SCENE

Beth left her father’s home and hitched a ride with a friend to Camp Cooke, an armored training base near Santa Barbara, where she took a civilian job, at the Army PX, as a cashier. This qualified her to live on the base, but the army base was new and still under construction, so she was forced to move around until more units were ready.

At one point during her stay at Camp Cooke, a concerned soldier offered to share his quarters with her until she got a unit of her own, however, once she moved in, the Sergeant made unwanted advances. When Beth resisted those advances, he gave her a black eye.

Beth reported the beating, and was immediately moved in with a female, WAC (Women’s Army Corp.) Beth shared her problems with the WAC and talked about her father…men…Hollywood…fame…and all of her desires, dreams, problems and goals, but the female officer was worried about Beth. She didn’t feel Beth was “tough enough” to handle the back-stabbing, rat-race, that was Hollywood.

That is why, when Beth was later named “The Camp Cutie of Camp Cooke,” her WAC roommate advised her to be very careful of the men she may run across.

Civilian cutbacks forced Beth off the base and on August 25, 1943, she moved in with some acquaintances at a ranch, located nearby. Beth was later arrested in a restaurant, sitting at a table full of friends, having drinks.

Unfortunately, she was still a juvenile.

It would be this mug shot, and the accompanying arrest record, that the police would later use to identify her body.

DAHLIA_beth_id_MUGSHOT

After the arrest, Cleo characteristically refused to take custody of Beth, who now had no legal guardian, until Mary Unkefer, a kindly Santa Barbara policewoman, offered her a place to stay.

The policewoman put Beth on a bus to Boston, but it wasn’t long before Beth hit the road again, traveling to Miami Beach, where she got a job at Rosedale Delicatessen.

BETH SHORT AND MATT GORDON

BETH SHORT AND (Unidentified) FRIEND

 

In March of 1944, on New Year’s Eve, Beth was staying with a Mrs. Devaul, when she met a soldier who was about to go overseas, named Matt Gordon. Gordon quickly became Beth’s fiancé and by mid-January 1945, she was back in Massachusetts, happily awaiting Matt ‘s return, and working at St. Claire’s Restaurant, in Boston.

At the end of the war, in August, Beth received a telegram, telling her that Matt Gordon had been killed in combat.

After Gordon’s death, Beth left her job at St. Claire’s in despair, and by December 1944, she was living in Jacksonville Florida.

For the next year, Beth roamed aimlessly around the country, and lived with anyone who would allow her to stay.  She struck up a relationship with another soldier named Gordon Fickling, and things looked promising, but after leaving Chicago and moving to Long Beach to live with Fickling, Beth realized that Gordon couldn’t offer her any stability, and the two went their separate ways.

The movie “The Blue Dahlia” came out in July, while Beth and Fickling were still an item. It was at this time, Beth’s friends nicknamed her; “The Black Dahlia.”

DAHLIA_THE BLUE DAHLIA

 

 

On August 20, Beth Short’s tenuous life began to unravel.

Sadly, the interviews with her friends and family, indicate a heartbroken young woman, completely unaware that she is recklessly careening towards disaster.

Much of the information was unflattering towards Beth, and even the police reports contained disparaging comments about her, calling her a “a leech,” a “mooch,” and in some instances a “prostitute,” seemingly because they could find no sources of income for her during this time.

I was shocked when I read the nasty words used in the police reports, to describe a victim, and felt that law enforcement was attempting to blame Beth for her own murder, while at the same time, cover up for a sloppy investigation, that was out of control from the beginning. The barbs, digs and innuendo continued in the press:

“…the victim had ‘many boyfriends,’” the word “boyfriends” often in quotes.

One newspaper described Beth, calling her:

“…a man-crazy adventurous, who came to California for her health in 1943, and spent the next 3 years as a ‘Hollywood Party Girl,’”

These types of negative, suggestive descriptions, depict Beth as someone who was “asking for it,” in so many words.

It’s also false, that she came to California for her “health,” but then so many things you read in the press about Beth were false.

Another paper described Elizabeth Short as a:

“pleasure-loving, raven-tressed victim,”

while another article stated that her picture albums:

“…were filled with photographs of boyfriends, from coast to coast.”

There was a lot of conflicting information at the time, 30-plus false confessions, a police force in chaos, over 120 suspects, missing evidence, and a constant stream of detectives, being removed and replaced .

Clues were ignored, simply because one set of investigators didn’t want to share their information with the “new guys.” Each team was afraid that the “new team” would get all of the credit for solving the crime, and make the original detectives look like a bunch of rubes.

DAHLIA_HL FAINT CLUES

 

Beth’s roommates told the investigators “… Beth wanted to get a good job to prove to her mother that she could look out after herself, but she never did get a job.” These same girls reported that her part time jobs included “nude modeling,” and being a “Hollywood extra.”

Those words, which were Beth’s own words, leave a lot to the imagination, as it became evident, the further I dug into her life, that Beth lied a lot.

The girls went on to say, that she always seemed to come up with the funds for groceries and rent.

In another interview, 44-year-old Hollywood Hairdresser, Alex Constance, who styled Beth’s hair occasionally and also took her out to eat once and a while, remembered that; “She sometimes played her many men against each other, making dates and then breaking them. I warned her that this could get her into trouble.”

By this time, Leo had put Beth on notice. He felt no remorse what so ever for leaving the family, that he only wanted her there to do his dishes, that he disliked her as a person, that her goals were meaningless and comical to him, that he wasn’t going to help her in any way, that he owed her nothing, and had no feelings for her as a daughter. If Beth did play tricks on men, who could blame her?

She told many people that she was close friends with actress Ann Todd, however, after her murder, when Ms. Todd was interviewed, she told the police that she never met Beth.

BETH SHORT TOLD MANY FRIENDS THAT SHE WAS CLOSE WITH ACTRESS ANN TODD, HOWEVER TODD DIDN'T KNOW HER.

BETH SHORT TOLD MANY FRIENDS THAT SHE WAS CLOSE WITH ACTRESS ANN TODD, HOWEVER TODD DIDN’T KNOW HER.

After Cleo threw her out onto the streets, and a soldier, who offered to help her, gave her a black eye instead, it’s no wonder that Beth, seemingly, had a bad attitude towards men.

Beth was also lying, about her life in Los Angeles, to her mother Phoebe.

Phoebe believed that Beth had a good job at the Naval Hospital, and was shocked to find out that Beth was basically homeless. “Her letters were always so cheerful,” she told reporters.

Marjory Graham and Lynn Martin, Beth’s roommates at the time she was murdered, asked their boyfriends if Beth could come along with them, whenever they went to dinner:

“The kid is broke and hungry, and she’s starting to get behind in her rent,” they implored.

An ominous story emerges, as one good friend describes Beth the way he remembered her:

“She was very good looking, with beautiful dark hair and fair skin,” the young man told a reporter, “She dressed nicely and was a long way from a barfly. She had a rose tattoo on her left leg, and she loved to sit with her leg crossed over, so her tattoo would show.”

The killer gouged the tattoo out of her leg, with a knife, and it was found in Beth’s vaginal  cavity, at autopsy.

When Mrs. Keeling, Beth’s former boss at the Camp Cooke commissary, was questioned, she described Beth as a “model employee in all respects…” but went on to tell detectives that after a month, Beth began to change.

The French family, who invited Beth to stay at their house for one night, but after a month had to ask her leave, told police that Beth had told them; she was the widow of an Air Corps Major killed in a plane crash, and that she had born him a child, who later died.

There was conflicting evidence of the supposed marriage, in two other trunks that the victim owned, not to mention the fact that her own mother, Phoebe, knew nothing of a marriage and a child.

ELIZABETH SHORT

ELIZABETH SHORT

Who could blame Beth Short for rewriting her dismal life, to include a few enhancements, such as a wedding and a child?

There was also the matter of her laughing at men. On the one hand, you understand her distain for men, but on the other hand, you can see where this might incite a dangerous psychotic, into a murdering narcissistic rage.

In one story told to a reporter, by a young man who was present at the time, Beth was traveling up the coast from San Diego to Los Angeles with a group of friends, when she began mocking a young man, who she claimed was hopelessly in love with her. Beth continued to make fun of her love-struck admirer, ridiculing him and devising a cruel joke, where the group could all join in together, and compose a post card to the unfortunate man, informing him that Beth had married someone else.

 

BLACK DAHLIA CRIME SCENE

BLACK DAHLIA CRIME SCENE

Laughing all the way to Los Angeles, the group of friends stopped at a post box and mailed the postcard, then carried on towards LA, laughing about it the entire time.

Then again, at this point in her life, one can hardly blame Beth for having a cruel side either.

That being said…when the autopsy report was released, it appeared that Beth’s ego was a cover-up. It was noted that many of Beth’s teeth were rotten and, not having the funds to get them fixed, she had been using wax to plug up the decay. Perhaps her vanity was a defense mechanism? Perhaps she didn’t want people to get too close?

There’s no doubt that whoever did this to Beth Short was extremely enraged, and that rage was aimed directly at her.

 

ELIZABETH SHORT, WEARING FLOWERS IN HER JET-BLACK HAIR, AS WAS HER TRADEMARK

ELIZABETH SHORT, WEARING FLOWERS IN HER JET-BLACK HAIR, AS WAS HER TRADEMARK

 

It’s more likely that whoever did this knew her.

Beth loved to show her ankle tattoo off. It was something her friends noticed. The tattoo was viciously carved out of her leg and crammed into an orifice.

Beth also had a habit of laughing at men, using them for money and favors, and playing them for fools. Beth’s killer brutally slashed a permanent smile into her face.

Could the understandable chip on Beth Short’s shoulder, and her occasional poor treatment of men, have been one of the things that triggered a killer into a murderous rage?

WHO KILLED THE BLACK DAHLIA? (Part One): The Murder…

DAHLIA_TITLE GRAPHIC

WHO KILLED THE BLACK DAHLIA?

This article is composed of information collected from FOIA files (Freedom of Information Act) through the FBI, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, original LAPD reports, old newspaper articles, historical military documents and genealogy databases.

DAHLIA_BETH_FAMOUS PIC

ELIZABETH SHORT: MURDER VICTIM

At 10am, on January 15, 1947, Betty Bersinger bundled up her 3-year-old daughter and left her Los Angeles home, to pick up a pair of shoes from the cobbler. As she strolled down the sidewalk, located near the industrial section of LA, she passed by a vacant lot, and something, laying in the weeds, caught her eye. At first glance she thought the large white items, that lay approximately 12 inches from the walkway, were pieces of a broken store mannequin, but as she approached the scene, something made her stop. Betty gasped, covered her mouth, and suppressed the urge to scream. She scooped her daughter up and ran as fast as she could to a neighbors house, where she phoned the police.

DAHLIA_HL FAINT CLUES

 

When the police arrived, they discovered the nude body of a woman, who had been severed in half at the waist. The corpse was lying face-up, and the scene looked to be deliberately staged. The arms of the upper-torso had been placed over the head, and they were bent at a 45-degree angle.

From the lack of blood on the ground, the color of the body, and various other clues left at the scene, it was clear that the girl had been killed elsewhere and placed in the vacant lot some time later.  The body had been washed clean of blood, and her hair was still wet.

The lower of half of her body was positioned a foot over from the torso, emphasizing the dismemberment, and the legs had been spread wide apart, in an effort to degrade the victim after death.

Aside from being scrubbed clean, the body also appeared to have been drained of blood, which was highly unusual, and indicated that the killer had access to a special location, where he could execute his fiendish plan, and not be disturbed.

The intestines were removed and tucked neatly under the buttocks, but it was the injuries to the girl’s face that caused the investigators to scratch their heads and circle the body in disbelief.

DAHLIA_SCENE

The coroner would later describe the massive injuries in medical terms; “a deep laceration to the face, 3″ long, which extends laterally from the right corner of the mouth to the right ear,” and another “deep laceration, 2 ½” long, extending laterally from the left corner of the mouth all the way up to the left ear.”

The coroner further concluded that; “The surrounding tissues are ecchymotic, and bluish purple in color.”

The horrifying report went on to say; “There are multiple lacerations to the mid-forehead, in the right forehead, and at the top of the head in the midline, and multiple tiny abrasions, linear in shape, on the right face and forehead.”

He added;  “There are two small lacerations 1/4″ each in length, on each side of the nose near the bridge,” and further “There is a depressed ridge on both sides, in the anterior portion of the neck, which is light brown in color.”

BLACK DAHLIA CRIME SCENE

In plain English it means that the victim was clubbed on the the head, several times, with extreme force, until she was knocked unconscious. While she was passed out, the killer secured her head in a rusty, vice-type contraption, most likely of his own construction and this is what left the deep impressions (and orange-brown coloring) on either side of the victim’s nose, and on the back and sides of her neck.

DAHLIA_TORTURE SLAYING VICTIM

The use of a such a device suggests that the killer had planned to slash the victim’s face open, had wanted to do it while she was still alive, and had constructed the mechanism specifically to keep her head stationary, as he performed this horrendous act.

The marks on the girl’s body indicated that wire, or heavy rope, had been used to restrain her legs, arms and lower torso. She had been in a sitting position, her legs sticking straight out, back upright, arms on either side, and elbows bent at a right angle.

After binding her, the killer savagely tortured the girl for an untold period of time, as she looked into his face. The autopsy revealed a litany of mutilations, and it was noted that feces was found in her stomach. She had been punched in the mouth so hard, that most of her teeth had been loosened, however, the most harrowing aspect of the autopsy was the fact that the cause of death was concussion, shock and loss of blood, from the blows to the head and the deep facial gashes.

Elizabeth Short, though alive, was barely conscious and nearly dead when she was cut in half.

This killer, however, was not yet satisfied, and he continued to abuse the corpse long after death.

A psychological profile, developed by William McCreary, famous FBI profiler, suggested that the killer became enraged when the victim “died too soon.” This also strongly suggests that the killer knew his victim, and had a personal score to settle. It was important to him, after the murder, to go the extra mile, drive her to a different location, take the considerable risk to himself, pose her body parts, and show her as a whore.

More than likely the killer enjoyed the fact that a woman and a child had discovered the body.  He deliberately placed the girl’s body where she would be found, and his efforts had garnered him at least one additional victim that day, as Betty Bersinger would never forget what she saw, and needed medical attention after leaving the police station.

DAHLIA_Newspaper SHORT PHOTO

No one had any idea who the woman was, and she was mistakenly described as a teenager in the initial newspaper accounts, but as the result of an arrest report, for underage drinking, that the victim received when she was still a juvenile, the authorities quickly identified the young woman as 22-year old Elizabeth Short, from Medford MA.

Elizabeth’s sister, Mrs. Virginia West, 25, told reporters:  “She was always being told how pretty she was. I guess it just went to her head.”

Elizabeth, known to her friends and family as Beth, was described in the newspapers as a “Pleasure-loving adventuress,” who was “movie-struck” and “man-crazy.” Her friends said she wanted to get a good job, but never had one, and the autopsy revealed that Beth Short bit her nails and had teeth that were in need of repair and filled with wax.

Beth wasn’t just hiding the truth from her family, she was hiding it from everyone, and her mother, Phoebe Short, was shocked when told of her daughter’s circumstances; “I never dreamed she was having financial difficulties,” Phoebe later told reporters

DAHLIA_HL BETH BROKE

Lynn Martin, one of Beth’s two room mates, stated: “She was very good looking, with beautiful dark hair and fair skin, but she was broke and hungry most of the time.”

On June 1, 1946, seven months before Elizabeth Short’s body was found, Veronica Lake and Alan Ladd starred in a huge box-office hit called “The Blue Dahlia.” Elizabeth’s friends subsequently nick-named her the “Black Dahlia,” because of her fondness for sheer black clothing, her dark beauty and her raven-colored hair. Beth would often place flowers in her hair, further identifying with the film. By all accounts, when Elizabeth Short entered the room, all eyes were on her.

In spite of all the attention she enjoyed, Beth had reached an all-time low.

DAHLIA_THE BLUE DAHLIA

On a personal note, I learned about the Black Dahlia’s murder at a young age, because my father and my grandfather were policemen. My dad graduated the police academy in 1949, two years after the Black Dahlia’s murder, and one night I overheard them talking about the case, and listened from my bedroom as they described the scene and batted around theories. The case was decades old at that time, and when I asked my granddad about the story, many years later, he looked down at me and put his arm around my shoulder, “Honey, you don’t need to know anything about that,” he said, “That’s not a story for a young girl. She was a pretty gal who had too many boyfriends, and that’s all you need to know.”

His message came through loud and clear, in spite of the fact that he avoided the details; Girls with too many boyfriends could end up like Elizabeth Short, if they’re not careful.

In fact, I never forgot about the story of the Black Dahlia, and became obsessed with it over the years, reading every book, every article, in every detective magazine, and watching every documentary on the subject.

DAHLIA_HL AND PHOTO_ LIKED BLACK

Who was Elizabeth Short? What was it that triggered this killer’s rage? What really happened that night? What led up to this crime? How did this happen?

I discovered how much misinformation is out there, not only concerning the murder, but Elizabeth Short herself. Mysteriously, the entire police file, which was stored in the LAPD archives, had been stolen or lost over the years. Poof! Gone.

At some point, between 1947 and who knows when, the files simply vanished.

This fact has made it even harder for researchers, like me, to get to the truth of what happened that terrible night.

DAHLIA_NEW TORTURE FBI

For instance, there is a poignant story that is taken for fact, and has been used for decades to determine the timeline leading up to Elizabeth Short’s murder. Almost every account of her movements on Jan 9th, states that she was last seen leaving the Biltmore Hotel on that Wednesday evening, and never seen again after that.

This led to speculation that she was held captive somewhere for 5 days and tortured, before being left in the empty lot.

 

BETH AND HER MOTHER PHOEBE

BETH AND HER MOTHER PHOEBE

 

The bartender at the Biltmore Hotel, and 3 additional witnesses, stated that at 6:30 pm on the evening of the 9th, she was “waiting for her sister,” who never showed.

Harold Studholme, Chief Bell Captain at the Biltmore, stated that Beth left the Biltmore after stopping to chat with him, and that he last saw her walking south on Olive Street, where she turned, smiled, waved at him, and then walked around the corner, never to be seen alive again.

The problem with that story is; when I received the District Attorney’s files on the case, in 2006, the timeline was clear. The DA still had copies of some of the missing police reports, which showed that the 9th, was not the last time Elizabeth Short was seen alive, and according to the original police report, many things happened after Elizabeth left the Biltmore that night.

After leaving the Biltmore Hotel, Elizabeth went to the Crown Jewel Cocktail Lounge, at the corner of Eighth and Olive St, where she chatted with the bartender and several patrons, before heading back to a rooming house, where she was staying with friends.

From the 11th to the 14th, the night she really disappeared, Elizabeth Short was seen daily by many people, all renting rooms at the Astor Hotel, located at 2901 S Flower Street. Elizabeth had been headed in that direction, the night she left the Crown Jewel Cocktail Lounge on the 9th, probably around 9 or 10pm at night.

Elizabeth was never kidnapped and kept at a location, where she was tortured for 5 days, as was commonly theorized. The DA’s files, which contain some of the original police reports, set the record straight.

OLD HOLLYWOOD

OLD HOLLYWOOD

 

Who is Elizabeth Short? How did she meet the person who did this?

Elizabeth Short was born in Hyde Park, Massachusetts, which is a working class suburb of Boston. Her father, Cleo Short, was an entrepreneur, although there is some dispute as to what kind of business he ran. Some say it was an auto repair shop, while others report that he had invested all of his money in a Putt Putt Golf course. Either way, the business was doing very well, as a result of  the Industrial revolution, which made many people rich.

Whatever Cleo’s business, it was hit hard by The Great Depression.

Cleo had moved his wife Phoebe, and their 4 daughters, to Medford MA, anticipating that his business would enjoy continued success, however in 1929, the stock market crashed, and shortly afterward Cleo vanished. His car was later found parked by a bridge near the family’s home, and his death was ruled a suicide. Cleo’s body was never found.

Cleo had left Phoebe and the four girls to fend for themselves, during the worst financial depression in American history, and taken the easy way out for himself.

Phoebe did the best she could. They downsized, moving to a much smaller place, and the women endured. Pheobe and her girls loved the movies, and used the magic of Hollywood as an escape from their difficult life.

Beth was shaping up to be a spectacular looking young woman, and talked incessantly of going to Hollywood and becoming a motion picture star. As it turned out, growing up, Beth looked more mature than she actually was, and her friends and family encouraged her. They all felt she was so pretty, that she could “make it” on her looks alone.

In 1940, when Beth was just 18 years old, she stayed with a family in Miami, and worked as an usherette in a movie house for the summer.

Beth had only 7 more years to live.

While Beth was in Miami, Phoebe Short received a letter, that would shock them all.

Cleo was alive.

Yes, Cleo had the unmitigated gall to pen a happy letter to Phoebe, stating that he was “alive and well,” and boasting of his job, working in a shipping yard, in Northern California. He boldly requested to come back to his family, so that everything could “be the way it was.”

Phoebe, who was angered and revolted by the news, told him she wanted nothing to do with him.

However, in 1941, the word “California” ignited visions of Hollywood and dreams of becoming a star, for a very young, Elizabeth Short.  So,at 19 years old, Beth packed her belongings into a steamer trunk, and headed for Vallejo, CA., to live with Cleo.

It was a disaster. Beth’s father, Cleo Short, was as cold as ice. As if a man with a heart, would have left his wife and children to fend for themselves, during the most frightening economic crash in the county’s history, to begin with. His character was defined before Beth ever left the airport.

Cleo Short, a flaming narcissist, would likely be the reason that Elizabeth Short developed a distain for men.

The story of Beth and Cleo doesn’t end there, though. You might say that Betty’s murder could be laid at Cleo’s doorstep…at least that’s what I say.

 

NEXT: Who Killed The Black Dahlia? (Part Two): More interviews with Beth Short’s friends and the Black Dahlia Avenger has something to say. The killer starts sending the police and the press letters.

THE 1953 KISS-OF-DEATH MURDER: The Bizarre Saga of Hildegarde Pelton

At around 9 pm, on the evening of February 1, 1953, a man was driving slowly through the fog on a deserted road, when a grey figure emerged from the mist and stood directly in front of his car, and he was forced to slam on his brakes.

Screen shot 2010-05-03 at 11.18.45 PM

Realizing that it was a woman, the man exited his vehicle to see if he could assist in any way. He would later tell the police that he noticed blood smeared across the woman’s face, and that she spoke with a thick German accent. She asked him for a ride to the nearest bus station and he agreed.

At the Greyhound Bus Station, the ticket seller remembered that the woman bought a ticket to Los Angeles at 12:30 am, and ten minutes later came back requesting a refund. Thirty minutes later she returned, and wanted to purchase another ticket to Los Angeles. The employee remembered her, because it was a lot of work to make refunds, and he asked the woman “Awwww lady, are you sure?”

He described her as being “hatless,” wearing a tan or grey coat, and carrying an overnight bag.

Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 7.10.19 AM

 

Hidegarde Pelton was born and raised in Germany, and was 6 years older than her husband, William. They met when he was stationed overseas, and got married in Bavaria in 1947. Hildegarde left her friends and family in Germany, and accompanied William back to California when his enlistment ended.  If Hildegarde had dreams of living the perfect life, with her handsome new husband, in the United States of America, it would not come to pass. She eventually realized that she lived in a country, where she had no family or friends. The relationship deteriorated quickly, and by 1953 the couple had been separated 3 times. The month before, William had been granted an unconditional divorce. The couple had been attempting another reconciliation, when Hildegarde was discovered in the middle of nowhere, walking through the fog, down an old dirt road.

It didn’t take long for William T. Pelton, World War 2 veteran and airline mechanic, to be discovered not far from where Hildegard had been picked up. He was found propped up against his English convertible, with nine 22-caliber bullets in his face, neck, and head. His body had been draped in a red hook rug.

The blood on his forehead had been wiped clean, and a bold lipstick print had been pressed onto that area of his face.

On an old dirt road, located deep in the woods, the eerie scene lay before the investigators. The detectives scanned the area for clues, and found a scarf that contained the murder weapon wrapped up inside of it. It had been tossed into the woods, and the bright colors stood out against the brown hues of dirt and dried leaves.

As a result of finding the slain veteran, a hunt was on the way for his German war bride of 4 years, but it would seem that the elusive Mrs. Pelton had vanished into thin air.

Three bags containing Hildegarde’s possessions had been found in the “murder car.”

Every newspaper carried the story and the sensational headlines were splashed across the front pages. The entire nation was on the look out for the German bride who had given her dead husband a “kiss of death,” and then disappeared into the night

Then on March 31st, another headline:

Hildegarde was arrested, while walking down a Manhattan street, on her way home from work. The agents later stated that she had freely admitted to shooting her husband, during an argument that took place in his sports car, as they fought, while parked on the isolated little road.

She had spent her time in New York living in a cheap hotel on West 47th St., while working in a Broadway theatre at the candy concession stand.

The movie playing at the theatre, when Hildegarde was apprehended, was the Alfred Hitchcock film “I Confess.”

Although Hildegarde was no longer the gorgeous young ingénue that Bill Pelton had married, she flirted with the police officers and admitted her guilt.

She relayed that she had met Bill Pelton in Munich, Germany, and they were married when his enlistment had ended there. She agreed to accompany her new husband to California, anticipating a home and a family, however, after moving to the United States, neighbors would later testify that they constantly heard quarreling coming from the couple’s apartment, and that they had separated on several occasions.

Shortly before Christmas of 1952, during one of their separations, Hildegarde was working at another theatre in Flagstaff, Arizona. It was then, that she went out and purchased a 22 caliber Harrington and Richardson.

Hildegarde told the FBI that she bought it to “…kill my husband.”

In mid-January Hildegarde came up with an excuse to return to their South San Francisco apartment and brought the firearm with her. While Hildegarde was in Flagstaff, it seems that Bill Pelton had managed to obtain the “interlocutory decree of divorce,” by default. This infuriated Hildegarde, and had prompted her to purchase the gun.

Five years of heavy drinking and brawling with her husband, had taken it’s toll out on Hildegarde’s appearance. Once a beautiful woman, the press would now refer to her as “frumpy.”

Finally, on Sunday, February 1st, William Pelton told Hildegarde to get out. To prove that he was serious, he had packed Hildegarde’s bags for her.

Before they left the apartment Hildegarde slipped the pistol into one of her bags.

Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 7.07.18 AM

According to Hildegarde’s confession, they left their San Francisco apartment, where they had been arguing, and they went to a bar where they had more words, this time fueled by alcohol. Afterward, they climbed back into Bill Pelton’s English convertible, and drove to Alameda County, fighting the entire way.

At some point, Hildegarde asked Bill Pelton to stop the car, and the couple ended up on a back road near the town of Niles. The argument raged on.

Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 7.06.35 AM

She finally pulled the gun from her bag and fired it “a number of times” in the direction of her former husband.

When the smoke cleared, Hildegarde told the police, she proceeded to walk about the crime scene. She cleaned the blood from her dead husband’s forehead and kissed him there. She threw the gun, wrapped in the scarf, into the woods, where the police would later find it.

The investigators speculated that Hildegarde had held it, hidden from her husband, until the moment she shot him.

Hildegarde quickly obtained a ride to San Jose, with the kindly stranger. There, she eventually would catch a bus to Tijuana, Mexico, but just for one day.

Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 7.32.43 AM

It turns out that Hildegarde was arrested in Northern Mexico, and subsequently handed over to the police in Los Nogolas, Arizona, where she spent the night in jail. It is not clear what Hildegarde was arrested for, but the police in Arizona were not aware of her husband’s murder, and released her the next morning.

One week later, Hildegarde was in New York City, and was able to find work at a movie theatre. She subsequently rented a room in a mid-Manhattan hotel.

She was walking down the sidewalk, on her way back to the hotel room, when the FBI arrested her.

Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 7.39.17 AM

Described in one newspaper as “plump and grey-eyed” with “strawberry blonde hair,” it was reported that she smiled frequently at the police, the FBI and the District Attorney, while confessing to killing her husband. “I kissed him after the shooting.” she said.

On June 24th, Mrs John Nunez testified, that she was riding in an automobile with the Peltons when Hildegarde said “I’m going to kill him. No kidding. I’m going to kill him.”

Mrs Nunez went on to say that Bill Pelton replied “I’m getting tired of waiting for you to do it.”

The news reports were saturated with colorful language, which furthered the public’s need to know.

It was a 6-man /6-woman jury, and they found Hildegarde Garne Pelton guilty of second degree murder, rejecting the prosecution’s argument for first degree, yet holding her responsible for the death of her husband.

Hildegarde received the verdict in stride, showing no emotion at all, and only a murmur arose from the crowd. The courtroom was packed, as she clutched a white handkerchief to her breast, and kept her eyes riveted on the leg of the counsel table in front of her.

Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 7.41.18 AM

There had been indications early on that the panel was agreed that Hildegarde killed her husband, but was split on the degree of guilt.

The jury sentenced Hildegarde to 5 years to life, for the murder of her husband, but they were unable to go home and get back to their lives, and stayed in the public eye for years afterwards.

Then, on February 1, 1957, Hildegarde was in the news one last time:

Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 7.05.26 AM

 

The article explained that the parole was conditional, and Hildegarde would have to return to Germany, which she eventually did.

Note: In 1953, the fact that this trial was so widely publicized, that William Pelton was in the military and his wife was German, the bloody kiss and the love story-gone bad, it all gave the press an excuse to sensationalize William’s murder, and therefore sell more newspapers. The crime, the “manhunt,” and the subsequent trial, dominated newspaper headlines for over a year. The public was captivated by the story for many reasons.  Hildegarde’s German heritage, the violent nature of the crime, the fact that William was a soldier who was stationed in Germany when he met her, and the psychology behind the bloody kiss, were so salacious, that newspapers could write about Hildegarde, using her first name only. She was also referred to as “The Kiss-Of-Death” murder defendant, because if you didn’t remember her name, you remembered the bloody kiss.

The final kiss on William Pelton’s forehead read like a Hollywood film script, and like many cases in the news today, while she was on trial, Hildegarde became infamous ( not to be confused with “famous.”)

Read Webster’s definition of “infamous” here…

After her conviction, however, just as it is today, Hildegarde was all but forgotten by everyone, except the friends and family of William Pelton.

SUICIDE BOMBERS: Why Are Mainstream Media Throwing Their Credibility Away?

FOX LIES

FOX LIES

“I’m not upset that you lied to me, I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.”…Friedrich Nietzsche

If anyone remembers the 1976 film “Network,” starring Faye Dunnaway and William Holden, then you know that Fox News and the rest of mainstream media have adopted the movie script, and made it real. If the media is supposed to be a window to the world, we are surely looking at Hell on earth right now.

Fox, Google, Facebook, Twitter, MSNBC, CNN and virtually every form of popular media, have polluted their own search engines, social sites, and airwaves, with Orwellian lies designed to manipulate a public…who sees straight through their tactics. As America watches in horror, Fox News and the rest of Mainstream Media vigorously twist facts, threaten viewers, promiscuously lie, ambush candidates and turn the election process into an agenda-filled 3-ring circus. This is not news anymore. This is a very real threat to our way of life, and an attempt to destroy our country…perpetrated by the media…and spearheaded by Fox News.

Since when does the media use intimidation tactics against their viewers?

Since when does censorship and limited speech represent anything American?

Since when does the government get to take away our freedom of religion?

Since when do Americans not have the right to bear arms?

What the Hell is going on?

It’s not only self-destrcutive but it’s unprecedented. I’ve never seen anything like it.

2015 WAS THE YEAR WE LEARNED FOR A FACT THAT FOX NEWS FABRICATES STATISTICS, FACTS & INFORMATION FOR THEIR OWN POLITICAL AGENDA

2015 WAS THE YEAR WE LEARNED FOR A FACT THAT FOX NEWS FABRICATES STATISTICS, FACTS & INFORMATION FOR THEIR OWN ANTI-AMERICAN POLITICAL AGENDA

 

Right before our eyes they have poisoned and contaminated their own products.

About me: I worked for CNN for over 17 years. After leaving CNN in 2000, I have worked for almost all of the major networks in various areas of expertise. In retrospect, I now realize that even 20 years ago… the die had already been cast.

There was foreshadowing of things to come.

the_media_is_lying_to_you Many years ago, while working for CNN, the lies were already in place. It’s one of the reasons I do not watch the news.

Virtually everything you see on mainstream media is designed to mislead you.

Virtually everything you see on mainstream media is designed to control you.

Virtually everything you see on mainstream media is designed to train you to accept their Anti-American agenda.

Virtually everything you see on mainstream media is designed to hide the truth.

As early as 1997, the graphics department at CNN was being instructed in deception.

ONE EXAMPLE: The designers were told to never show a graphic with a black person…

1) Holding a gun (even if the story was about a black offender who shot someone)

2) Robbing someone.

3) Committing any crimes.

4) Living in poverty.

5) With handcuffs on.

6) In an orange jumpsuit…

and the list goes on.

Verboden.

CNN grew so “politically correct,” that virtually every situation became a logistical nightmare for the staff. These “re-dos” and “whims” clog the news process and pander to an ever-growing crowd of malcontents. As we see now, you might as well not speak. One word and you’ve offended someone. America is sick of it.

It’s just one message, out of a cauldron of not-so-cleverly crafted, subliminal messages that these “puppet-master-wanna-bes” are sending to Americans.

“Be careful what you say.”

These idiots really believe that they are crafting our reality. That people in 2016 are sick of hearing their lies, and now recognize it as more than an attempt to be “politically correct,” doesn’t matter. Network executives are blind to that fact, because it would mean that they are not as clever as they believe (with all of their hearts) that they are.

If you watch CNN enough, and don’t do much thinking for yourself, you will walk away confusing all sorts of targeted lies with the truth.

In fact, the graphics department at CNN were terrorized daily by the liberal executives there. All common sense was thrown out the window. These “mini-dictators”  attempted to package and design your news for you, by omitting truths that got in the way of their political agendas, and it did not escape the folks who worked there. Viewed through CNN’s liberal-eutopic lens, the graphics department became part of the fraud.

I’m telling you that these ignorant fools actually believe that they are controlling you and your thoughts.

LIE. LIE. LIE. LIE. LIE.

LIE. LIE. LIE. LIE. LIE.

Different rules applied to different truths designed to hide facts. Hardly “News.”

When Jim Morrison of the Doors said: “Whoever controls the media, controls the mind” he was most likely high on drugs. Just like we believed in Santa Claus, until we grew up and knew better, at some point most people realize they are being lied to. There have been books written about it, movies made about it, and we see dramas played out every day…then read about it in the news and remark: That’s a lie.

Fast forward to 2016 and networks like Fox News have gone full blown Nazi propaganda, hoping for an audience of brain-dead lemmings, that they can lead to the edge of the cliff, and “convince” to jump off en mass. Not going to happen in a million years. 

Fox has committed the unforgivable sin of mocking  and berating it’s viewers. There’s no “come-back” from that.  People have finally had enough of their bullshit.

I would tell you to check Fox ratings, but clearly they’ve paid Neilson, Google and anyone they can, to help them hide the fact that their ratings are tanking big time. Down, down, down. It’s a no-brainer.

THE MESSAGE FROM THE MEDIA IS CLEAR: WE HAVE AN AGENDA!

THE MESSAGE FROM THE MEDIA IS CLEAR: WE HAVE AN AGENDA!

If you haven’t seen the film “Network,” here is a chilling summary of the plot:

A television network cynically exploits a deranged former anchor’s ravings for its own profit.

In this particular case the “deranged former anchor” is Howard Beale, who works for UBS, the Union Broadcasting System. When UBS executives notice their ratings are down, they fire Beale and give him two weeks notice. The not-too-tightly-wrapped Beale, however, announces on live television that he will commit suicide on the next Tuesday’s broadcast. Beale is terminated immediately, but the executives have a change of heart when he promises to apologize for his actions, and they give him a second chance.

WE'RE MAD AS HELL AND WE'RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!

WE’RE MAD AS HELL AND WE’RE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!

Beale’s promises go out the window though, and he begins to chant on air that “life is bullshit” screaming “We’re mad as Hell and we’re NOT going to take it anymore!” When the network’s ratings skyrocket as a result of Beale’s behavior, the executives make a shameless decision to exploit him.

AMERICA HAS HAD ENOUGH!

AMERICA HAS HAD ENOUGH!

When Beale discovers that Communications Corporation of America (CCA), the conglomerate that owns UBS, will be bought out by an even larger Saudi Arabian conglomerate, he launches an on-screen tirade against the deal, encouraging viewers to send telegrams to the White House telling them, “I want the CCA deal stopped now!” This throws the top network brass into a state of panic, because the company’s debt load has made merger essential for survival. The executives convince Beale to cease these rants, but then the ratings go down.

FOX NEWS AND MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS EVIL

FOX NEWS AND MAINSTREAM MEDIA ARE EVIL

As soon as Beale’s ratings start to slide, the executives began to have meetings about how to solve “the Beale problem,” and spark a boost in the new season’s ratings at the same time. The executives decide to hire the “Ecumenical Liberation Army” to assassinate Beale on the air. The assassination succeeds, putting an end to The Howard Beale Show and kicking off a second season of The Mao Tse-Tung Hour.

Sound far fetched? I’m guessing not, after what we’ve seen from Fox, throughout this election year so far. Deception. Betrayal. Treason.

EVEN THE FILM "NETWORK" IS TAME, COMPARED TO WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW.

EVEN THE FILM “NETWORK” IS TAME, COMPARED TO WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW.

The most frightening aspect of the film “Network” is the fact that it is happening now.

beale fired

I remember when Fox became competition for CNN. It was during the War in the Gulf that Fox shot to the top of the ratings chart, leaving CNN in the dust. It seemed to be a result of the original “Fox and Friends” morning news show. People got up early to go to work and turned in to Fox to see what had happened overnight.

Even CNN employees preferred Fox and friends to CNN, as they felt Fox was indeed more “fair and balanced” and their morning team had a chemistry that has proven difficult to reproduce over the years.

Branded the Clinton News Network, CNN lost most of it’s viewers to Fox during this time and Fox was embraced by the public as the conservative newcomer. The American people were sick of the lies.  Suddenly people who worked for CNN, who’s headquarters are located in Atlanta, Georgia, were jumping ship and heading to New York to work for Fox.

Fox was on top back then and they have remained on top ever since.

However life is anything but consistent in television, and just as Fox took the ratings away from CNN during the Gulf War, someone will take those same ratings away from Fox as a result of this election.

They have gone too far.

FOX News LIES

One well known figure who left CNN and went over to the Fox side, was Greta Van Susteren. Greta had hosted a legal show for CNN during the OJ Simpson trial, and continued with the show after the infamous verdict.

 FOX insists on Anchors who ooze sex…

What struck me about the exodus was the physical change in the female anchors who left CNN, once they reappeared in their new roles at Fox. The most notable example being Greta.

The former CNN ladies debuted on Fox, looking as if they had just finished a shift at the local strip club. Wet greasy lips, enhanced by (mandatory? contractual?) injectables, reflected light as they mouthed out the newsworthy events of the day. Heavily made up faces, framed with piles of platinum porn-star hair, accompanied tight-fitting, short-skirted anchors sporting impossible spiked heels.

To those of us who knew them before their “news make-overs,” the collection of women looked more like an army of “Newsroom Barbies,” than anything resembling a real news anchor. Whatever happened to Walter Cronkite?

Still… I’ll never forget what they did to Greta.

Rumors were running rampant at CNN, that Fox had forced Greta to get plastic surgery before they would let allow her on the air. Word around CNN was, that it was actually a part of her contract. None of us knew whether to believe it or not, however many people wondered: Where’s Greta?

PART OF HER CONTRACT?

PART OF HER CONTRACT?

Many of you may remember Greta’s first day on air at Fox. The executives apparently shoved her out onto the set before her surgery had completely healed. On the day in question Greta did, in fact, make an announcement to the effect that she had just had plastic surgery and that she wanted people to know. She told her audience that she wanted to announce it because she felt that her face looked stiff and weird!

Unbelievable…even today.

I have known many people who have worked for Fox over the years, and can tell you it’s not a nice place to work. They are the furthest thing from “progressive” when it comes to women’s rights. Just take one look at how they sexualize their on air talent. As soon as he could figure out how to do it, Rupert Murdoch began automating everything possible, costing entire departments their jobs, in order to streamline the price of production.

Their female anchors are still objectified, even though they talk a tough game and attempt to challenge anyone who calls them out on their willingness to be turned into sexually titillating  news messengers.

I have no beef with someone who owns what they are, and maybe wouldn’t even care if they told me flat out: “I don’t mind looking like a sex object if they pay me enough.” Good for you. Unfortunately, many of these intellectual CUCK teasers are nothing more than weak woman who are afraid for their jobs and have consequently agreed to jack up the sex factor.

Their sole purpose on air is to attract male viewers, who think with the lower-half of their bodies.

Although their lives are defined by Fox’s limited views of women, apparently they don’t mind. They all willingly play the game, willingly donning spiked heels and glossing their ever-voluptuous lips…all activities that have nothing whatsoever to do with delivering you the news.

Why is that necessary? Because you can rely on the fact that male viewership goes up during the time slots that feature the ladies of Fox. It’s all part and parcel of the bigger lies that Fox wants to sell you. They soften the blows with testosterone laced eye candy.

If it’s one thing this election has accomplished, it has given disgusted Americans a good look inside of the Fox News Globalist agenda. Americans realize that what Fox is selling, literally threatens our very existence. Taxpaying Americans are horrified by what they see happening in Europe. People are scared to death. Europeans are trying to warn the US and Americans are facing the harsh reality, of a government that has sold us out.  Along side them, is a rotten and corrupt mainstream media. Every antic the media pulls, shines a bright light directly back on them, and amplifies the fact that they are trying to destroy this country while fattening their own pockets. The media has been caught red-handed and now their desperation is showing.

Fox is a a network gone berserk.

Recently Rupert Murdoch tweeted an ironic jab aimed at Governor Chris Christie, referring to him a “suicide bomber.”

IRONY AT IT'S BEST!

IRONY AT IT’S BEST!

Ironic indeed, since Fox News has literally put a gun to it’s own temple and pulled the trigger.

By insulting and threatening their viewers, pushing their Globalist agenda, and flat out lying to middle Americans everywhere…they have effectively thrown their viewership away. 

They can hide it all they want to, but there’s no doubt that their ratings are disappearing before their very eyes.

Americans are fighting for their lives in this election, and they are not just mad…they are furious. Fox has clearly placed themselves squarely in the camp of our enemies, and continues to do so. They apparently nurture hope that Americans are too stupid to notice. Enraged at the ever diminishing content, and blatant dishonesty of Fox News, their conservative base is bailing. No longer trusted, Fox must hide the fact that their viewers are revolted, disgusted and jumping ship.

Yes…just like the film Network…Americans are: Mad as Hell and they are not going to take it anymore!

MEDIA ON TRIAL: WHY IS THE JESSICA CHAMBERS CASE BEING IGNORED BY VIRTUALLY EVERY MEDIA OUTLET?

 

MEDIA WON'T TOUCH THIS CASE WITH A 10 FOOT POLE! WHY???

MEDIA WON’T TOUCH THIS CASE WITH A TEN FOOT POLE! WHY???

Jessica Chambers was burned alive on December 6, 2014, near Batesville MS. She was found smouldering, walking along a country road, her car in flames. The monster who did this terrible thing to Jessica, lured to a remote location, bashed (and I do mean bashed with full force) her on the back of the head, leaving a long, wide open wound there. They then, in an act of cowardice and depravity, poured accelerants down her throat, in her ears, and up her nose, doused her clothing with it, and set her ablaze while she was still alive.

Who in this country does not think that this crime deserves top headlines and a non-stop investigation, until the perpetrators are put to justice? Who thinks this act of pure evil should not be shouted from the highest rooftops? WHAT’S WRONG WITH OUR MEDIA OUTLETS THAT THEY HAVE BECOME HEARTLESS, MUCKRAKING ENTERPRISES? 

Dead_Journalism

 

Journalism is not only dead…it is non-existent, and virtually absent in every single “news” venue. It’s one of the reasons that BLOGGERS have been slowly replacing news sources in many homes.

journalism-tombstone

Right or wrong…the blogger is doing the journalist’s JOB for them now, and have grown in popularity over the past 10 years, because people simply don’t trust the media anymore! Instead of telling fairy tales and selling stories to the highest bidder, legitimate bloggers seek out the TRUTH and have no dog in this race, other than protecting society from cowards and scumbags who would commit a crime like this.

JUSTICE FOR JESSICA: MAKE THAT CALL BEFORE THIS HAPPENS TO SOMEONE ELSE!

JUSTICE FOR JESSICA: MAKE THAT CALL BEFORE THIS HAPPENS TO SOMEONE ELSE!

Apparently Nancy Grace, who nightly touts herself as a “seeker of justice”, could give a rat’s behind about what happened to Jessica. Nancy Grace has absolutely no interest in seeking Justice for Jessica, as she has been contacted numberous times since this happened, and has blatantly ignored the story! 

NANCY GRACE CARES MORE ABOUT DANCING THAN SHE DOES ABOUT A YOUNG GIRL WHO WAS BURNED ALIVE!

NANCY GRACE CARES MORE ABOUT DANCING THAN SHE DOES ABOUT A YOUNG GIRL WHO WAS BURNED ALIVE!

Apparently, she’s not as “fearless” as she pretends to be. I used to be a fan…but that was when I believed she really cared about justice. I realized that she was only grandstanding during the Hayleigh Cummings debacle, when she entertained pedophile, murder suspect and ass-kissing drug dealer, Ronald Cummings, simply because he called her “Miss Nancy!”

Don’t ask Good Morning America, 48 Hours Mystery, Dateline, or any other TV show that pretends to try and help victims, to help get justice for Jessica! NO WAY JOSE.

Radio-Silence

They aren’t going to touch this case with a 10 foot pole. You will get radio silence just like you have gotten radio silence since January 2014. How do I know? Because I have retweeted dozens upon dozens of requests to all of these so called “journalists,” and not a one of them cares.

In short: The media refuses to cover this story…because they DE-VALUE Jessica’s life and it doesn’t fit into their agenda! 

 

BE JESSICA'S VOICE. DON'T PROTECT A COWARD!

BE JESSICA’S VOICE. DON’T PROTECT A COWARD! 

 

What does the media have to offer these days but bullshit stories designed to shame people of all races, and create an illusion that Americans are on the verge of a race war…when nothing could be further from the truth?

Blacks and whites work together as equals in high paying positions every day, and television reality shows depict privileged people of all races enjoying the American Dream, performing on stage, or attending charity events.

But the “news” media wants you to ignore all of that and follow their joint effort to become the “pied pipers of anarchy!”

WE DON'T CARE ABOUT JESSICA!!!

WE DON’T CARE ABOUT JESSICA!!!

If you read the Huffington Post, a publication I quit reading a year and a half ago, what you get is more of a post apocalyptic fairy tale, than anything resembling the truth. According to Huffington Post, successful blacks and whites, who like each other, and work together, and respect each other, and are FRIENDS WITH EACH OTHER…should suddenly and inexpicably leave their comfortable homes and start burning down their neighborhoods and killing their coworkers!

According to the Huffington Post we should fire ALL THE POLICE…it’s an emergency!

What utter balderdash!

Sounds more like a message from ISIS.

THE MESSAGE FROM THE MEDIA IS CLEAR: WE HAVE AN AGENDA!

THE MESSAGE FROM THE MEDIA IS CLEAR: WE HAVE AN AGENDA!

Yes, the Huff Post, who I’m convinced is being paid to print all these bullshit stories, encouraging and lauding people who are burning down cities and (cough cough) “protesting” by killing cops and innocent people. They would have all of us throwing away our careers, not to mention friendships we’ve had for years, with people of all backgrounds, races, and ethnicities. Huff Post seems to want us all to “get on board” and leave our comfortable homes, that we worked for…and go HAYWIRE in the streets instead!

Who’s up for that? Anyone buying that pet rock?

The media is now run by raging, narcisistic, power drunk, blood thirsty, criminal loving, anti-American idiots! Why read it? It will only insult your intelligence and make you angry.

The “news” doesn’t exist anymore. Those days are gone. What you have is a collection of frauds selling their front pages to the highest bidder and pushing their own political agendas down your throats, by manipulating the headlines and the stories they publish.

It’s not news anymore. It’s a carefully crafted and paid-for illusion…and there’s no place for Jessica there.

It’s outragous. It’s unacceptable. It’s disgusting and insulting, and it’s all a fraud. A fake, designed to manipulate the public masses into acting like brainless apes.

Why won’t Nancy Grace or any of the other countless shows that decry violence and SAY that they are seekers of justice, follow up on Jessica’s case? Because they are SCARED that’s why. They are SCARED that the perpetrators will be black and that doesn’t fit their agenda these days.

But what if the perpetrators ARE NOT black? What if the killer’s are both black and white? What if the killers were 2 whites and two blacks? What if the killers are all white?

Isn’t the media putting an onus on the black community by FEARING that the perpetrators are going to be black? Because they most assuredly must believe that the perpetrators are black, by virtue of the fact that they are avoiding this story like the plague!

When I worked at CNN and there was a shooting story in the news, they would not allow the graphics department to create a graphic with a black person holding a gun, even if the shooter was black. The executives at the time felt that the graphic would make ALL blacks look like criminals!

How insulting and condescending can you get? Why would they think that, when we all had many…many…many… friends and co-workers of ALL ethnicities whom we loved and respected?

Talk about underestimating your audience.

It just goes to show you how misguided the media was then, and in my opinion it has now gone way over the line. They are all raging egomaniacs who think they are indespensible.

BUT WHAT IF THE KILLERS ARE NOT BLACK?

Wouldn’t that relieve a stigma that has now been placed over the entire black community in Batesville because of the scheme of one or two people…the ones who instigated this terrible crime?

BOONE MISTA AND DENISE TUDOR...

BOONE MISTA AND DENISE TUDOR…

 ABOVE: These were the two who were immediately called into the station. Denise Tudor had sent a flurry of threatening texts to Jessica…ahhhh like the day before she was killed. The interview is on youtube and well worth the watch if you’d like to see a portrait in “sketchy” play out before your eyes. Tudor even smirks and seems to laugh at one point, when talking about the murder of Jessica.

As you can see, Tudor is white. There are more than a few white players in this pathetic and cowardly saga. Jessica…like many of us…had friends of all races surrounding her life, yet the media’s fear is palatible. 

Sadly what used to be journalism has turned into propaganda by anti-American radical psychos, who are selling news to the highest bidder, and not a word that you read in a rag like the Huffington Post can be trusted.

Example: Huff post linked to an article from the Star, for the longest time, and the article’s headline read: Jodi Arias Strangled Boyfriend Out of Jealousy!!!

 

evidence-photos

Where in the trial was there a shred of evidence of a strangling?

I mean how can you even leave that up there for months? It’s 100% false, plain and simple. They don’t care because they are not there to print the truth.

They are there to make money by selling half of their side bar to the highest bidder and it looks like the Kardashians (a family that never had a legitimate reason to be in the “news” EVERare out-bidding everyone!

That’s just the point. You don’t think all of those articles about the Kardashians are actually news do you? They pay Huff Post to write stories about their baby throwing up on Kim’s Armani jacket in a restaurant, or Kim’s ass hanging out of her too tight dress.

It SEEMS like the only people in Hollywood who get work are Miley Cyrus and the Kardashians…and yet there never is any explanation as to what the Kardashians actually DO to warrant these headlines.

MEANWHILE… a young girl has been BURNED ALIVE!

JESSICA CHAMBERS: IGNORED BY THE MEDIA!

JESSICA CHAMBERS: IGNORED BY THE MEDIA!

CNN, ABC, NBC…they all do it. It’s revolting and it’s OBVIOUS.

 

GRETA WAS ON THE STORY FOR A WHILE, BUT SHE WAS THE ONLY ONE!

GRETA WAS ON THE STORY FOR A WHILE, BUT SHE WAS THE ONLY ONE!

 

In the interest of fairness I will give Greta Van Susteren credit for covering this story on her FOX show On the Record, but it seems someone upstairs has told her to stop.

 

Imagine that.

IN 2015 MY GUESS IS THAT NUMBER HAS TRIPLED! JOURNALISM IS NOT JUST DEAD...IT'S BEEN CREMATED AND BURIED, AND AMERICA KNOWS IT!

IN 2015 MY GUESS IS THAT NUMBER HAS TRIPLED! JOURNALISM IS NOT JUST DEAD…IT’S BEEN CREMATED AND BURIED, AND AMERICA KNOWS IT!

In summary, in spite of the fact that the media has proven themselves useless, cold hearted even…

the police and the prosecutor in Batesville KNOW who killed Jessica.

When the PROSECUTOR is “building the case,” that means they already have their suspect. They are no longer trying to “figure it out.”

OF COURSE THEY KNOW!

This is not a large town and Jessica’s killers are not brain surgeons.

To the people responsible for Jessica’s murder:

You messed up.

You let a lot of things slip. Things only someone who was there would know.

Otherwise the police and the FBI wouldn’t be working with the PROSECUTOR. 

Oh… and how sure am I that you left a trail of hate for the cops and the FBI to discover? Not a doubt in my mind.

JUSTICE FOR JESSICA IS COMING

JUSTICE FOR JESSICA IS COMING

It’s only a matter of time before they come and get you…ALL of you.

justice for jessica

By the way, this is a death penalty case…so sleep well while you can. There are more people than you will ever know, who are all waiting to see Jessica get the justice she deserves, and WILL NOT let this case die.

Besides, apparently the DA already KNOWS who you are.

Tick tock…tick tock…

OUTRAGE IN ARIZONA: Judge Sherry Stephens allows Arias defense team to run amok!

WHY IS SHERRY STEPHENS HELPING THE DEFENSE DRAW OUT THIS TRIAL?

WHY IS SHERRY STEPHENS HELPING THE DEFENSE DRAW OUT THIS TRIAL?

Does it get anymore f*cked up than this? Here is the crowning jewel example, of a courtroom that is out-of-control. In front of a nation no less. All this trial does is demonstrate just how corrupt and ineffective our very expensive court system has become.

What the heck is the matter with Judge Sherry Stephens and why does she seem so furiously Hell-bent on helping the defense team in the Jodi Arias trial, bleed Arizona taxpayers dry and undermine the system?

What kind of so-called judge allows this type of fiasco to take place in her courtroom, in front of the world?

Judge Sherry Stephens seems to believe that as a judge she actually has the power of the Queen. Dangerous my friends, very dangerous, and when we are talking about a case of this magnitude, to have a judge flat out help the defense undermine the system, in front of the entire country, is a pure outrage.

Since when is it ok for judges to treat the courtroom, as a place to further their own personal agendas?

We all need to now think about passing laws that restrict judges and their terms.  This is not only out of control, it’s a slap in the face to every single taxpayer in America.

Rumors of Sherry Stephens (will no longer refer to her as a “judge” in this article) having alcohol and drug issues are running rampant all over the internet, because of her behavior on the bench in this 2 year long, expensive fiasco. She seems oblivious to the laws and rules of the court, and her willingness to help the defense undermine the system, in the face of ever-growing public outrage, even to the point of depriving tax paying citizens of their constitutional rights with “secret witnesses,” has gone too far. Now people are questioning her sobriety. People, including myself.

Is she taking something that has clouded her judgement or is she just drunk with power?

STALKER / BUTCHER, JODI ARIAS, CONTINUES TO TORTURE THE VICTIM'S FAMILY WITH THE HELP OF SHERRY STEPHENS.

STALKER / BUTCHER, JODI ARIAS, CONTINUES TO TORTURE THE VICTIM’S FAMILY WITH THE HELP OF SHERRY STEPHENS.

The laws are not confusing. Jodi Arias qualifies for the death penalty and just because she is female, that does not give her a special pass, no matter how badly Sherry Stephens wants her to get one.

This trial that has cost the taxpayers of Arizona millions, and threatens to cost them even more, is another wake up call that JUDGES need to be closely monitored and held accountable or we might as well go back to Nazi Germany and live.

Perhaps this is a personal swan song before she leaves the bench?

Why does Stephens brazenly help the defendant (a sadistic sociopath) to further torture the victim and his family as shocked and horrified public helplessly looks on? This is a victim that could have been any of us! This monster could have slashed any one of Travis’s female friends just as well as she did to him! Is Queen Stephens trying to further her own personal agenda at any cost?  If true, how dare she play host to the tricks and stall tactics of a desperate defense and a sadistic killer, and force the good jurors of Arizona to drop from this penalty phase!

Sherry Stephens is acting like she’s above the law and the rules of the court. Laws that were passed by the people of Arizona, that carry the penalty of death, whether she likes it or not.

So what’s up with this judge? Is Sherry Stephens drunk or high on pills as she sits up there on the bench and allows anarchy in her court, or is she just a power hungry public servant who has a not-so-hidden agenda?

Well folks in this case you can be the judge because there’s one thing she has proven beyond all doubt,  Sherry Stephens doesn’t give a rat’s behind about the jurors, the taxpaying citizens of Arizona, the victim, the victim’s family or it appears justice in this case.

What she does seem to care about is taking the decision of life and death away from this jury!

Perhaps Stephens wants to teach the taxpayers (who pay HER salary by the way)  of Arizona a lesson, and punish them for voting to keep the death penalty, by racking up a giant bill for this trial on purpose?

I have been watching trials since Ted Bundy represented himself in Florida back in the 1970s, and Sherry Stephens is the worst, most biased, most ill equipped, most incompetent judge I have ever seen, bar none.

Not even Belvin Perry, who gave the defense team in the Caylee Anthony case permission to contaminate and tamper with the jury, tamper with evidence and tamper with witnesses, is as horrible as Stephens has shown herself to be.

NO JUSTICE NO PEACE!

NO JUSTICE NO PEACE!

This has, not surprisingly, reached the proportions of a national outrage and in my opinion this trial will be used in the future to change the laws as they stand now. We need laws to control and hold judges accountable, forcing them to come up for yearly reviews and be re-elected by the pubic. It’s coming, and this trial pushes citizens closer to finding a way to make that happen.

Imagine a judge that thinks she is so powerful that she can blatantly undermine the laws of the court, and help a defense team throw a verdict in a case with national attention such as this.

 

Queen Stephens.

Where are Sherry Stephen’s superiors as she stomps all over the victims, causing them years of further anguish, while coddling a defense team who’s strategy is clearly to wear the jury down, until they one by one have to go back to their lives? You don’t have to be a brain surgeon to see what is happening. The tactic is a simple one and requires limited to NO courtroom skills.

Perfect for this extremely slimy defense duo. They will walk out of this a laughing stock, as they already are sinking lower every second, and proving to the world with every frivolous motion, that their client is a danger to everyone around her.

At this point it is a safe bet to say that this is a conspiracy to help this defendant avoid the death penalty, and at the same time punish the citizens of Arizona for having the death penalty in the first place, and the judge is in on it. It is an outrage for every tax paying citizen to watch this disgrace unfold and will most likely be the platform for some major changes in the law in coming years, especially how it pertains to the very judges who’s job it is to keep defense attorneys like these in check.

THIS TRIAL IS AND HAS BEEN OUT OF CONTROL, BECAUSE OF A BIASED JUDGE WHO IS HELPING THE DEFENSE TO TAKE THE DECISION OF LIFE AND DEATH AWAY FROM A JURY!

Where is the JUSTICE for the victim? Where is the system “working” in all of this mayhem that Sherry Stephens has brazenly helped to facilitate?

This could be any of us! Any of us could have run into this monster and you don’t need a degree in psychiatry to see exactly what this sadistic creature is capable of. She is a narcissistic sociopath, who believes she is smarter than everyone else and also believes, by her own words, that she is justified in killing people who don’t bend to her whims.

SLASHER / STALKER / KILLER

SLASHER / STALKER / KILLER

DEATH PENALTY is what she has earned through her planning, sneaking through the dead of night, driving all over the countryside to create an alibi for herself, making her way like a snake towards her prey, seducing him into the shower and then butchering him like a pig.

She is a STALKER and a KILLER, plain and simple. She butchered him in 17 different ways and is still trying to kill him over and over and over again, this time, in front of his family…

 

…and none of it would be possible without the cooperation of Sherry Stephens.

 

Judge Sherry Stephens cost the tax payers over 2 million dollars in the Jodi Arias Trial

Judge Sherry Stephens cost the tax payers over 2 million dollars in the Jodi Arias Trial

Whoa be it unto the family who’s loved ones are murdered in Queen Stephens’  jurisdiction. Whoa be it unto you if you happen to lose your life by a sadistic monster who ends up in Queen Stephens’ courtroom. You will be the one put on trial. Your family will be the ones who are tortured and belittled while the killer laughs at them all, and there won’t be a thing you can do about it, because there’s no laws in place to make judges like Stephens do their very jobs.

 

This defendant has absolutely NO MITIGATORS. None.

 

NO MITIGATORS!

NO MITIGATORS!

JODI ARIAS  has more than earned the death penalty for her crimes, but if there was any doubt that this defendant deserves to die for what she did to Travis Alexander, this so-called mitigation phase has proven that this monster will continue to harvest and cause mass destruction where ever she goes. If I ever had a doubt about the death penalty before this, the mitigation phase of the Jodi Arias trial has erased all doubt. Some people will not be stopped any other way, and will abuse the system and be a risk to everyone around them as long as they live, and Jodi Arias, by her own words, is one of them.

We have laws. The death penalty is alive and well and this fiasco only proves one thing, and that is, that we need the death penalty now more than ever. Revise it. Change the threshold of the evidence so that we are sure that the right people are executed for their heinous and brutal crimes, but don’t let judges hold the entire country hostage over a worthless murdering tramp who never did anything but destroy lives and murder innocent people!

We, as a society, don’t allow people to sadistically butcher other human beings, because they are angry and didn’t get what they wanted, otherwise Sherry Stephens, Kurt Nurmi, Jennifer Willmott and whole lot of other people would be lying in a big pile of severed limbs and heads for all the world to throw stones and spit on.

Destroying lives…that’s what they are doing. No regard for the living victims and the society in which they live. They can put lipstick on it and claim that everyone needs a vigorous defense all they want, but it all boils down to one thing…

MONEY.

Nobody is wrecking havoc on the system for free and we are the ones who are paying for this outrage. Everyone of these subversives are being paid by the public to cause havoc in the system, help a cold blooded killer go free, and most importantly, pad their own bank accounts with thick stacks of green money.

Without money, none of them would be here.

It wouldn’t be so hard to swallow if statistics didn’t consistently show, that every single one of these hypocrites would do a 360 if one of their own family members was butchered like a pig and left to die, as this cold blooded, manipulating killer did to Travis Alexander.

NIGHTMARE IN ARIZONA: Judge Sherry Stephens Costing Tax Payers Millions…

Judge Sherry Stephens cost the tax payers over 2 million dollars in the Jodi Arias Trial

Judge Sherry Stephens cost the tax payers over 2 million dollars in the Jodi Arias Trial

How appropriate that the latest news out of Arizona is the scariest of all, just in time for Halloween.

Is Judge Sherry Stephens in love with Jodi Arias?

Is Judge Sherry Stephens in love with Jodi Arias?

Judge Sherry Stephens, the judge who has hosted the second biggest judicial joke of the 21st century, is treading on everyone’s rights in order to keep the citizens of Arizona out of her already, out-of-control courtroom. No surprising news since she has assisted Jodi Arias throughout this trial in tormenting, torturing and re-victimizing each member of the Alexander family at every opportunity.

As a result of their lack of experience, Kirk Nurmi and Jennifer Willmott have made hay with Judge Sherry’s willingness to allow virtually everything their sadistic client desires, no matter how demented.  Helping Jodi Arias fulfill her sick need to torture the remaining victims, Travis Alexander’s family any way she can, Judge Sherry Stephens has provided Arias with endless opportunities to do just that. The defense, having no legal skills or prowess, have used everything  from sex tapes to close ups of Jodi Arias’s considerable well-worn vagina and anus, all in order to distract from the horrific, premeditated crime that this sociopath has committed and further victimize the real victim Travis Alexander. Judge Sherry Stevens has allowed Arias and her family to giggle in open court as the real victims in this case, the Alexander family, are forced to endure graphic autopsy photos and heartbreaking testimony.

THE APPLE DOESN'T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE.

THE APPLE DOESN’T FALL FAR FROM THE TREE.

Although Nurmi and Willmott have offered comic relief throughout the trial with their constant objections and requests for mistrials, their shameless mimicking of Juan Martinez is flat out embarrassing and emphasizes the already obvious fact, that they are both inexperienced and their “strategy” all along has been to upset the system and the proceedings as much as possible. Their repeated use of effective phrases, phrases used effectively by Juan Martinez throughout the trial, are transparent and childish. There is nothing funny any longer however, about their lack of skill and willingness to upset the system. It is clear now that we have a judge who has given them the key to her courtroom and will continue to do so.

NOVICES, NURMI AND WILLMOTT,  MIMIC MARTINEZ BECAUSE THEIR ONLY OTHER OPTION IS TO WRECK HAVOC ON THE SYSTEM

NOVICES, NURMI AND WILLMOTT, MIMIC MARTINEZ BECAUSE THEIR ONLY OTHER OPTION IS TO WRECK HAVOC ON THE SYSTEM

I could say both Nurmi and Willmott have all the legal prowess of a 10 cent crack whore (apologies to crack whores everywhere,) because isn’t that what Nurmi and Willmott have been doing all along? Milking the system, with their limited supply of legal knowledge, experience and resources, for as long as they can,  for as much of that tax payer money they can squeeze out of this fiasco?

All the makings for more wasting of tax payers money is there and none of it would work without Judge Sherry Stephens’ willingness to turn her courtroom into anything the defense team asks for, including a porn theatre, all to the delight of the sadistic defendant.

WHY NOT GIVE HER SOME KNIVES TO PLAY WITH, WHILE SHE SITS IN COURT AND LAUGHS AT THE VICTIMS?

WHY NOT GIVE HER SOME KNIVES TO PLAY WITH, WHILE SHE SITS IN COURT AND LAUGHS AT THE VICTIMS?

The guilt phase is over. The killer has been found guilty already of a heinous first degree murder. So why are we enduring another expensive freak show? Isn’t it the judge’s responsibility to let the jury know that the guilt phase has already been decided, and now their job is only to decide, by law, what the proper penalty is?

Hasn’t it been the judge’s responsibility this entire time to maintain control over her courtroom? 

Well since it’s only the taxpayers who are paying, cha ching, cha ching, let that tax payer cash register ring.

This should have never happened in the first trial. It’s outrageous for it to be repeated in the penalty phase.

JUDGE SHERRY STEVENS

It doesn’t take “Einstein” to know that if Jodi Arias was a man, this trial would have been over with in a matter of weeks. There is not one doubt who committed this terrible crime. There is not one doubt that she planned it, scheming for weeks maybe longer, collecting everything she would need, not only to murder Travis Alexander, but to cover her tracks completely and document the event in photos for future enjoyment.

All because he no longer wanted to date her, and who could blame him?

What happens to the next person who angers Jodi Arias?

There is no doubt that she has been and will manipulate, stall, deceive, blame the victim, show graphic photos of her overworked nether regions and play salacious sex tapes if the Judge will allow it. There’s no doubt that she will lie, lie some more and then lie again, in order to save her own skin. There is no doubt that she will use all of her terrifying character traits to strike out at someone in the future. There is no doubt that she will do everything in her power to escape prison, and there is nothing too low that she won’t do to save her own life.

Boy Jodi Arias really had a bang-up fun time in court thanks to Judge Sherry Stephens and the taxpayers of Arizona!

Boy Jodi Arias really had a bang-up fun time in court thanks to Judge Sherry Stephens and the taxpayers of Arizona!

This is why the death penalty  most certainly is a deterrent and it is a powerful one. Just look at this cocky, self assured killer, who never thought she would be convicted, tap dancing as feverishly as she can, full of rage towards the real victims, that her own life is threatened. Do you think that she would have gone forward so happily with her savage plan had she thought for one second that there was a chance she would be sitting on death row for it? Absolutely not.

It’s one of the things that the sadistic, no-jury-will-ever-convict-me-girl, gave not a second’s thought to.

Had the stalker known then what she knows now, this story might have had a different ending because above all other things in her revenge-filled mind, her own life reigns supreme.

Much more important, it’s the only way anyone will ever be able to keep this raging sadistic narcissist from killing again.

She will kill again. It’s a no brainer. She has proven she will plot and plan from prison or anywhere else to get revenge for the situation she is in. She has proven herself not fit for society, on about 20 different levels. She will kill again. She will either kill one of the inmates in the prison or reach out to someone on the outside.

She will also plot and scheme to escape prison for the rest of her life.

The Jodi Arias Death Stare...

The Jodi Arias Death Stare…

There is a penalty in Arizona for what she did. It’s the death penalty. Any man who did this would already be on death row. There is no doubt what so ever that the right person has been found guilty of this heinous and cruel murder.

 

Jodi Arias is a terrible danger to anyone unfortunate enough to be around her. She knew full well that what she was doing was wrong, but she enjoyed doing it and had no fear of getting caught or convicted. The woman believes she is smarter than even the system, and with Judges like Sherry Stephens in charge, Arias is close to being correct.

Jodi Arias quipped and smirked her way through the first full day of cross challenging the Prosecutor Martinez to "Bring it!"

Jodi Arias quipped and smirked her way through the first full day of cross challenging the Prosecutor Martinez to “Bring it!”

Let’s get it right. Travis was butchered. He was almost decapitated. He was shot in the face, had defensive wounds and deep cuts all over his body. His neck was slashed down to the vertebrae. She chased him down the hallway with her knife, stabbing him all the way, and stood over him slicing his throat open as if he was a pig. There was no “fight” and this is not the result of a “mental illness.” This is the result of a sadistic narcissistic sociopath, who has no respect for human life and no remorse at all. This is someone who has demonstrated to the court time and again that she is, in fact, quite proud of what she has done, and if she doesn’t get her way, it will happen again.

Collage of the last moments in Travis Alexander's life

Collage of the last moments in Travis Alexander’s life

 

Judge Stephens helps Arias to torment the Alexander family as much as she can.

 

This trial should have been over with a year ago and Jodi Arias should already be on death row.

This trial should have been over with a year ago and Jodi Arias should already be on death row.

Arizona is a death penalty state.

For Judge Stephens to usurp the process and try to aid the defendant in avoiding what is clearly the punishment a male would have received for such a brutal and horrendous crime like this, is unacceptable.

And now we have a secret court,  for a convicted killer?

It just goes on and on and gets worse and worse.

So now, in a grand act of defiance against the very constitution of the United States, Judge Sherry Stephens has decided that Jodi Arias, convicted killer, can have “secret trials” and “secret witnesses.” In addition, these “secret witnesses” will also be allowed to dictate what goes on in her courtroom. All of this, in spite of the constitution.

Judge Sherry Stephens is the reason that a yearly review of judges should exist in every county and every state. I have never seen a judge so inept or biased, take your pick.

Death penalty defendants are tried and convicted every day in trials that are overseen by seasoned and unbiased judges.

This is not one of them. This is a joke.

Justice for Travis.

If Dr. Seuss covered the Jodi Arias trial…

 

9beKX

 

THIS POST WAS WRITTEN IN RESPONSE TO A POEM BY EJ Montini, columnist FOR AZ Central…(link to the original at the bottom of this post)

images-1

Her name means blood and death…

poison and Macbeth.

In fact she is nefarious,

the monster known as Arias.

Jodi Arias middle finger

Her position is self obsessed.

If we doubt her she’ll spew and scream threats.

She’ll torture those near her and make sure they fear her,

then slice a big gash in their neck.

Travis-Alexander-outopsy-images

 

Her reasons are quite various.

From media whore to nefarious.

Her ‘fans’ are agenda filled trolls…

who reside in the most shallow holes.

Gropey, Grungy and Flippy...the Baez troll team has dwindled down to these three.

Gropey, Grungy and Flippy…the Arias troll team has dwindled

For the trolls who’ve got, not a clue,

she’d just as soon slice up on you!

laughing arias

She hides in her hair and her lies

and schemes with her shark-dead eyes.

The mind and the heart of a snake…

she’s a classic murdering fake.

Nowhere to hide...

Nowhere to hide…

But if the world is fair,

a jury will declare,

that the butcher with a knife,

has given up her own right to life!

THE BABY KILLER’S CURSE…

 

redduct

Casey Anthony killed her daughter Caylee by wrapping duct tape around Caylee’s face and watching her suffocate to death. She then rode around Orlando to night clubs and parties for almost a week with Caylee’s decomposing body stuffed in a trash bag, rotting in the trunk of her car.

CASEY ANTHONY WRAPPED DUCT TAPE AROUND CAYLEE ANTHONY'S ENTIRE HEAD

CASEY ANTHONY WRAPPED DUCT TAPE AROUND CAYLEE ANTHONY’S ENTIRE HEAD

When the stench finally bothered her, Casey Anthony schlepped no further than the end of her street and threw Caylee’s rotting body and all of her possessions in the woods and went right back to partying.

 

Good riddance.

CASEY ANTHONY DUMPED HER DAUGHTER CAYLEE IN THE WOODS TO ROT

CASEY ANTHONY DUMPED HER DAUGHTER CAYLEE IN THE WOODS TO ROT

The evidence proved to millions of trial watchers that Casey Anthony hated Caylee Anthony and was jealous of her, murdered her in a rage and kept it a secret for 31 days, until her mother Cindy Anthony finally called 911 and declared:

“It smells like there’s been a dead body in the damn car!”

That’s because there was a dead body in that car. The prosecutor proved it to the over six million people who watched that trial. They proved it beyond all doubt. They proved it beyond any doubt.

CASEY ANTHONY'S DEATH MOBILE

CASEY ANTHONY’S DEATH MOBILE

Of course there was a “dead body in the damn car.” That’s why Casey Anthony never reported Caylee missing in the first place. Were it not for Cindy Anthony’s phone call…no one would have ever found out what really happened to Caylee.

CASEY ANTHONY BABY KILLER

CASEY ANTHONY BABY KILLER

This was a simple, stupid, sloppy, juvenile crime committed by someone who is simple, immature, sloppy, stupid and lazy.

CASEY ANTHONY: SIMPLE, SLOPPY AND STUPID.

CASEY ANTHONY: SIMPLE, SLOPPY AND STUPID.

The prosecution proved it to millions of trial watchers.  Casey Anthony and Casey Anthony alone killed Caylee. Simple minded, simple crime.

There was decomposition fluids, blow flies, hairs with death bands and grave wax still rotting inside of Casey Anthony’s trunk when it was recovered from a tow yard weeks later.

 

DECOMPOSITION AND TRASH THAT CASEY ANTHONY DROVE AROUND WITH IN THE TUNK OF HER CAR FOR WEEKS...

DECOMPOSITION AND TRASH THAT CASEY ANTHONY DROVE AROUND WITH IN THE TRUNK OF HER CAR FOR WEEKS…

The prosecution presented more than enough evidence to convict Casey Anthony of first degree murder and the polls were overwhelmingly in favor of a first degree verdict.

Personally, I have never seen so much evidence against a defendant in all of my years of trial watching. There was no doubt in the minds of the public what happened at the end of that trial…none. I saw the polls and they were overwhelmingly in favor of first degree murder.

protest jury

 

The evidence proved to 98% of the population, across the boards, that Casey Anthony and only Casey Anthony murdered little Caylee.

 

CASEY ANTHONY GUILTY!

CASEY ANTHONY GUILTY!

But as the public watched the trial they also saw something else unfolding in front of their eyes.

blood_money

What the cyber community and trial watchers were forced to witness beginning in 2008 was nothing short of evil.

cindy-and-george-blood-money

A circle of corruption began to form around Caylee’s own family, along with defense attorneys Cheney Mason and  Jose Baez.

It was vicious, malevolent, immoral, reprehensible and despicable to watch.

Cheney Mason...exactly the kind of guy that would tamper with a jury.

CHENEY MASON: EXACTLY THE KIND OF GUY WHO WOULD TAMPER WITH A JURY

It wouldn’t have been so hideous to see if Cheney Mason, Jose Baez and Caylee’s own family’s efforts to cheat, lie, tamper with witnesses, tamper with evidence, blame innocent people, tamper with the jury, break the law, break the rules of the court and even worse, if all of these egregious  offenses had been committed  with even a speck of secrecy…

but look no further than the internet and you will see it is all a matter of record.

 

JOSE BAEZ: LIED, CHEATED AND BROKE THE LAW TO GET THE VERDICT HE WANTED AND LOST EVERYTHING IN THE PROCESS...

JOSE BAEZ: LIED, CHEATED AND BROKE THE LAW TO GET THE VERDICT HE WANTED AND LOST EVERYTHING IN THE PROCESS…

If all of this activity had been clandestine it would not have been such an outrage…

but it wasn’t “clandestine” at all.

The whole dirty rotten illegal trial played out in front the American public and has been  waved in our faces for four full years.

 

OUTRAGE AT THE VERDICT THAT WAS SPAWNED IN AN ILLEGAL VERDICT THAT STILL HAS AN ANGRY PUBLIC SCREAMING FOR JUSTICE

OUTRAGE AT THE VERDICT THAT WAS SPAWNED IN AN ILLEGAL TRIAL THAT STILL HAS AN ANGRY PUBLIC SCREAMING FOR JUSTICE…

The “not guilty” verdict, spawned in an atmosphere of sinister, diabolical, corruption will never be accepted by the over 6 million people who have already found Casey Anthony guilty of first degree murder. Those six million people were not PAID to ignore the evidence and twist the law. Those six million people watched the trial and saw all of the evidence for themselves.

THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS WHO KILLED CAYLEE AND NO AMOUNT OF BOOKS AND INTERVIEWS FROM THE CREEPS WHO PERVERTED JUSTICE BEFORE OUT EYES WILL CHANGE IT...

THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS WHO KILLED CAYLEE ANTHONY …. JUSTICE WAS PERVERTED BEFORE AMERICA’S EYES AND EVERYONE NOW WAITS FOR A DAY OF RECKONING…

The whole world still wants to know why defense attorney Jose Baez was dancing in the halls of the courthouse and acting like a cowboy in the wild west, right before the most important verdict of his life?

 

JOSE BAEZ DANCES WITH GLEE AND PRETENDS TO BE A COWBOY, IN THE HALLS OF THE COURTROOM, BEFORE THE VERDICT WAS EVER READ...CURIOUSER AND CURIOUSER...

JOSE BAEZ DANCES WITH GLEE AND PRETENDS TO BE A COWBOY, IN THE HALLS OF THE COURTROOM, BEFORE THE VERDICT WAS EVER READ…CURIOUSER AND CURIOUSER…

WHY would an attorney from one of the most immoral defense teams in the history of televised trials, a man who wore the expression of someone who was competing in a “death match” throughout the entire trial…suddenly be dancing with glee in the moments before the verdict was read?

 

THE JURY WHO BROKE THE LAW AND SPIT IN THE FACE OF AMERICA...

THE JURY WHO BROKE THE LAW AND SPIT IN THE FACE OF AMERICA…

 

WHY did jurors perform mental back flips, ignore evidence and twist and break the law, all in order to set a baby killer free?

HOW did some members of the jury come into large sums of money that allowed them to simply walk away from their jobs?

Over six million trial watchers still want to know why!

 

LITTLE CAYLEE ANTHONY, LOSING HER HAIR AND SHOWING DARK HOLLOW EYES, IN THE HOURS BEFOE HER MOTHER MURDERED HER...

LITTLE CAYLEE ANTHONY IN THE HOURS BEFOE HER MOTHER MURDERED HER…

Some of the jurors  were able to retire after this despicable verdict, some paid off their mortgages and have lived the life of Riley ever since. Imagine that…all of this ‘good luck” landing in the laps of the most hated jurors of all time, after cheating a child and the entire country of justice.

THE DEFENSE TEAM AND CAYLEE'S OWN FAMILY BEGAN TO CAPITALIZE ON THE FACT THAT THE TRIAL HAD GENERATED SUCH OUTRAGE AND LINE THEIR POCKETS WITH BLOOD MONEY, FURTHER ENRAGING AN ALREADY OUTRAGED PUBLIC...

This trial has left millions of Americans outraged. It was a vile experience that will never be erased from the minds of those who watched this defense team break the law, tamper with witnesses, tamper with evidence, cheat the system and all of it with virtually no repercussions.

THE PUBLIC WILL NEVER FORGET WHAT THEY SAW IN 2009...

THE PUBLIC WILL NEVER FORGET WHAT THEY SAW IN 2009…

That the public who found Casey Anthony guilty of first degree murder beyond any doubt,  was forced to watch one of the most corrupt trials in the history of this country play out, is a fact that the defense attorneys will have to learn to live with, along with everyone who helped this cold blooded child killer go free, to kill again.

 

CHILD KILLER

CHILD KILLER

There is not a doubt in my mind that Casey Anthony will kill again or someone is going to kill her. When that happens it will be laid at the doorstep of every single person who took part in this circle of evil, starting with Caylee’s family, Cheney Mason, Jose Baez and ending with that jury.

But there is another court at play here. It is the court that the defense team ignored throughout this trial and minimized it’s effect on all of their sleazy tricks and flat out lawbreaking.

It’s the court of public opinion.

With each project and each attempt to garner a financial reward for all of their offensive, immoral behavior, they have been met with those six million people, who all saw what they did.

The big “win” they destroyed their own careers over and sold out their reputations for, has cost them all and cost them dearly.

So caught up in their own lies and drowning in the truckloads of bullshit that they themselves spread all over their own futures… they behave exactly like their murdering  client…

stupid, sloppy and immature.

If the ignorance displayed by this family and so called “defense team” could be summed up in two words it would be greedy and reprehensible.

The curse began the day of the verdict and with all the finesse of a stupid, lazy baby killer, the defense team immediately began insulting the very public that they hoped to sell their books and movies too.

That tactic, needless to say, did not work in their favor.

Most 16 year olds would know better, but in an inebriated moment of hubris Cheney Mason, who now hopes someone will buy his book of more lies and contradictions, gave six million trial watchers who never bought a word out of his drunken mouth, the finger.

 

Cheney Mason...exactly the kind of guy that would tamper with a jury.

Cheney Mason…exactly the kind of guy that would tamper with a jury.

Good luck with that book.

We all saw it...we all joked about it...none of us could believe it...and now they want us to forget it...fat chance.

We all saw it…we all joked about it…none of us could believe it…and now they want us to forget it…fat chance.

Jose Baez, who has become a national joke, lost his house and any hope he had of ever being in the public eye again without a backlash. Dumped by his PR firm, Baez lost all hope of ever being on television again without at least some of those six million people boycotting and complaining.

“Some” of six million people is a hell of a lot of people.

The math is simple but yet they still are living under the spell of greed and hubris in spite of the overwhelming evidence that America wants to see all of them in prison.

Everything they hoped to gain from breaking the law, tampering with witnesses, tampering with the jury and perverting our system of justice, has been given to Jeff Ashton by those six million trial watchers and there’s nothing about that trend that is going to change in the near future.

BECAUSE THE PUBLIC DOES NOT TRUST THE VERDICT, JEFF ASHTON WON THE PRIZE...

BECAUSE THE PUBLIC DOES NOT TRUST THE VERDICT, JEFF ASHTON WON THE PRIZE…

They can bully and insult all they like, but the “Baby Killer’s Curse” is alive and well and each time they repeat this abhorrent behavior they slide further into their own pile of shit.

CASEY ANTHNY CHILD KILLER, CASEY ANTHONY KILLED CAYLEE ANTHONY, CASEY ANTHONY BABY KILLER, CASEY ANTHONY GUILTY  OF FIRST DEGREE MURDER, CASEY ANTHONY JURY TAMPERING, JOSE BAEZ LIAR AND CHEAT, CHENEY MASON JURY TAMPERING, CHENEY MASON LIAR, CHENEY MASON DRUNK, CHENEY MASON FEEBLE

THE BABY KILLER’S CURSE…

The defense team from Hell still remains unscathed and the public still wants to see action taken against these attorneys who are now perceived as criminals themselves.

Jose Baez and Cheney Mason had their chance to impress the American people with their legal skills and failed miserably. All they had to do was save the baby killer’s life but they chose to cheat in front of over six million trial watchers. They gambled a stupid bet  and lost.

A CIRCLE OF EVIL

A CIRCLE OF EVIL

In the end they failed to see that there was only one thing that mattered in this trial and that was justice for the only victim, Caylee Anthony.

All of the efforts made by Caylee’s very own family to erase her from this world have failed. All of the defense teams attempts to eradicate Caylee Anthony from this trial failed, because they forgot the most important thing.

Jose Baez and Cheny Mason are forever branded enemies to justice and truth. They have proven themselves incapable of trying a case without breaking the  law and perverting the system.
