Former Prison Guards-Slash-KKK Members Indicted For Conspiracy to Murder Black Inmate Upon Release

 

(L-R) David Moran, Thomas Driver, Charles Newcomb. Newcomb on the left and Moran on the right. MY QUESTION HOWEVER IS, isn’t the name “Moran’ of a Latin persuasion? And if so, since when are people of this origin allowed to be members of the KKK?

*They teach our children, give us anesthesia before surgery, and apparently, run for office…and even win. I’m talking about Ku Klux Klan members (and their supporters) folks.

Case in point: Three former prison guards in Florida; who also happened to be members of the KKK, were tricked during an elaborate sting into thinking that the Black man they were plotting to murder upon his release, had already been killed.

Now we know these “members” in general are not smart people, so it probably wasn’t a difficult task to bamboozle them.

But I’m getting ahead of myself.

The murder plot involving Elliot Moran, 49, and Charles Thomas Newcomb, 45, came about after a third guard, 27-year-old Thomas Jordan Driver (another Klan member), was bitten during a fight with the inmate. The three guards believed the inmate was infected with HIV and hepatitis and enlisted the services of an FBI informant to murder the man. Continue reading

Family Burying Patriarch Horrified When They Spot A ‘Decaying Foot’ in the Ground

*Ah damn. What a deal breaker. Wait! This is one deal you can’t break. Grandpa has got to be buried; and at this point its gotta be down there. But who in the world can explain why, as the casket is being lowered into the ground, this grieving family had to see someone’s decaying foot sticking out of the dirt?

…and here’s one for ya, why wasn’t the foot in a coffin?

Oh! The questions this situation brings to mind are endless. But here’s the story.

Mr. Cleveland Butler had suffered a fatal stroke in the Brooklyn nursing home where he resided. A a brief Celebration of Life ceremony had taken place at the Robeson and Brown Funeral Home in Bed-Stuy. But when the family of the 85-year-old decedent was completing the burial process in New Jersey at Mount Holiness Memorial Park, no one could have warned them about what was about to happen. 

The horrifying body part was discovered as the beautifully flowered blue casket was being lowered. Sandra Butler, daughter of the patriarch, spoke to the Daily News.

“This was a very traumatizing situation, first dealing with losing my father and then this,” she said.

“I couldn’t even look at it. It was too much and no one said anything to us. It was like business as usual for them. They just dumped the dirt in the plot like it was normal, like it’s nothing to them.”

Dang! You mean they see this stuff EVERY DAY??? Continue reading

Watch: Video Shows Teen Babysitters Put Infant in Refrigerator…And Laugh

One of the teens taped while the other put the baby girl in the refrigerator

*On Monday, a woman trusted her niece and the girls’ friend to babysit her seven month old daughter while she took a shower. Little did she know she shouldn’t have.

Apparently they thought it would be funny to put the crying infant in the refrigerator; after all, they were laughing as they did it. As one girl held the crying baby, put her inside the refrigerator and closed the door; the other videotaped it.

Then they had the gall to post the video on Snapchat.

That’s where the police caught wind of it. And as you may have guessed, they’re not laughing.

Danvers (Massachusetts ) police Chief Patrick Ambrose said, “We were notified by Swampscott (police) of video involving an infant child.”

On the video the girls laugh as they close the door of the refrigerator while the baby is heard screaming. One girl even says “bye” as she slams the refrigerator door. Moments later, they open the refrigerator door and remove the baby. Continue reading

Watch: Family of Little Boy Who Died in Hot Daycare Van at ‘Little Miracles’ Demands Answers

Myles Hill’s mother and a man leaves roses for the 3-year-old child at the Little Miracles Academy on Gore Street and Plymouth Avenue on Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017.

*We’re still reeling from the death of little Myles Hill, who we reported yesterday had been found dead after being left in a van; where temperatures rose to the mid-90’s — for a reported 11-hours. 

We can’t even wrap our brains around how his mother must be feeling; not to mention his entire family and community. 

A vigil was held last night on the family’s behalf, and to say it was “emotional” would not begin to adequately describe what transpired.

Hundreds gathered at a nearby park to pay tribute to the toddler and at the beginning of the video below a woman, reportedly an aunt to the boy, screams out, “Why? What happened?”

The child’s mother speaks through tears to the media at the vigil saying, “He’s three, he’s going to be four at the end of this month and he’s not even going to have a birthday.”

The crowd chanted “Justice for Myles!”

Meanwhile, Audrey Thornton, the owner of Little Miracles Academy, spoke to the press as well. Continue reading

W. Virginia Tourists Horrified At Sight of Woman Dragging Body of Child Into Woods (Video)

Child’s father told authorities wife is an “excellent mother who must have snapped”

*Tourists who stopped to witness a car accident got more than they were expecting to see. A couple visiting from New York to attend a bluegrass festival stumbled upon an auto accident on Sunday in West Virginia.  But as they watched they noticed a woman dragging the limp body of a child into the roadside hills. Shocked and horrified they called the authorities.

When the authorities arrived at the scene, they found 37-year-old Ericka Newsome and the body of her dead 11-year-old daughter, Kaye-lea Plummer.

No cause of death has been released as of this writing, but the arrested Newsome on charges of concealing her daughter’s body; which was wrapped in a blanket. Continue reading

Boy, 3, Found Dead in Van After Day Care Worker Forgets to Do Head Count (Watch)

Myles Hill, 3, was forgotten in a van by a daycare worker at Little Miracles Academy in Orlando, Florida for 11 hours. He died as a result.

*This news hits hard, today especially. I mean, because of the unusually hot temperature, I make sure my dogs don’t even stay out long. So to hear that a child was accidentally left in a van; where the temperatures rise to unspeakably hot levels, within a short period of time, hurts beyond compare.

Police in Orlando responded to a call about possible child neglect around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning at a daycare called Little Miracles Academy. According to CBS affiliate WKMG, they found a 3-year-old boy dead. He had been left in an SUV for more than 11 hours.

Charges are pending against a careless day care worker who allegedly neglected to do a head count after taking children out of the van at around 9 a.m.

It’s no surprise that the employee is distraught. We know not the identity, but he or she damn well should be! Continue reading

Weirdness in Short Bites: Have You Seen These ‘Unusual’ Stories?

Though their shells LOOK hard, this nine-banded armadillo’s shell is a leathery armour. It’s life span is anywhere from 12 to 15 years.

*When a Texas man saw an Armadillo in his front yard, he didn’t call out to his wife, “Hey honey, look at that rare animal in our yard. Let’s take a picture!” No, that would’ve been too humane.

Guess what he did instead?

Took out his .38 revolver and shot it. Three times!

But you know what they say about karma. It’s a bee-ach! Continue reading

Good Samaritan on Southwest Flight Literally Saves Two Kids From Sexual Molestation

Photos from the San Jose Police Department. Pictured from left to right: Michael Kellar and Gail Burnworth.

*Its not often that being nosey warrants a pat on the back, but this story makes it a viable exception. Although her identity is being preserved right now, a young Tacoima, Washington pre-school teacher is being applauded for what she did on a Southwest Airlines flight en route to San Jose.

The woman was sitting behind a man who was texting; and she peeked a bit longer than she probably would have normally. Turns out, it’s a good thing she did.

Thanks to unusually large font, and a large smartphone screen, the woman noticed that the man was texting disturbing messages. Messages that spoke of sexually molesting children. As it turns out, he was sending the texts to their daycare provider and was so busy doing so he didn’t even realize she was watching.

Once she realized what was happening, she even snapped a few pictures of his screen.

 “It was in large font, and she sees certain words and starts contemplating there’s something bigger there,” San Jose sex-crimes detective Nick Jourdenais told the Mercury News. “Then the conversation transitions to children. That’s the moment when she decided to preserve the evidence as best as she could.” Continue reading
