Marion Superior County Judge Kurt Eisgruber Orders No Prison Time for Indiana Man David Wise Convicted of Drugging & Raping his Wife Mandy Boardman
Talk about a travesty of Justice, since when have we become lenient on rapists … What is is this Shariah Law?
Get ready to be outraged … On May 10, 2011, Mandy Boardman told the detectives at the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department the bizarre story that her husband, David Wise, had been drugging her for at least three years and raping her in her sleep. She had also found video on his cell phone. Last month a jury convicted Wise of six felony charges related to sexually assaulting his wife. On Friday, May 16, 2014, Marion Superior Court judge Kurt Eisgruber sentenced Wise to 20 years. Seems OK so far, right? Well it ends here.
The judges sentence did not include one day in prison. In regards to the 20 year sentence, 12 years were suspended and 8 years were to be spent in home confinement. WHAT THE HELL WAS THIS JUDGE THINKING!!! Since when are we lenient on rapists?
But perhaps the strangest thing is what happened after a jury convicted Wise last month of six felony charges related to sexually assaulting his wife.
On Friday, a Marion Superior Court judge sentenced Wise, 52, to 20 years — but not a day in prison. Of the sentence, 12 years were suspended and 8 years were to be spent in home confinement.
Prosecutors had asked for 40 years in prison.
And Boardman — who divorced Wise after discovering what he’d been doing — is furious.
“To have my rapist, my attacker, convicted on all six counts, only to be let go – only for him to walk out that door the same time I could — was just unfathomable,” Boardman told the Los Angeles Times in a phone interview on Monday. “I never thought that he would be at home, being able to have the same rights and privileges as I do.”
It gets worse, if possible. From Mediaite, check out the rapists defense as to why he was drugging and sexually assaulting his wife.
His wife was “snippy” and drugging her “made her nicer” is how an Indianapolis man convicted of repeatedly drugging and raping his wife explained his actions in court. The offenses, carried out over the course of three years, netted Indiana resident David Wise a grand total of zero years in prison after a trial in which he was found guilty.
Wait, it gets even worse, if that is possible. The judge turned to the victim and told her that she needed to forgive her attacker. WHAT!!! Where does this judge get off making any such comment, especially when the rapsist never apologized and showed any remorse.
“While the judge was giving his opinion on the sentence, he first turned to me and told me I needed to forgive my attacker, which is unfathomable,” Boardman told The Times. “He told me I needed to forgive my attacker and I needed to let my attacker walk. It was a punch to the gut from the justice system — or from one judge.”
The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office confirmed the accuracy of Eisgruber’s remarks.
EXIT QUESTION: What is more criminal, a sicko husband who drugs and rapes his wife or the judge that gives this depraved individual a slap on the wrist?
The 9-11 museum at Ground Zero in New York City tells the grim story of that fateful September morning in 2001 when terrorists attacked the United States and changed our lives forever. The museum contains artifacts and exhibits that pay tribute to the innocent people that were killed that day and the first responders, police and firefighter heroes who ran into the buildings and paid the ultimate sacrifice. There is also about 8,000 unidentified body parts stored out of sight in a “remains repository” at the museum’s underground home. How does something like this have a gift shop? It is not only absurd, it is completely tasteless and offensive the the families and friends who lost loved ones that day. It just seems so wrong, but the museum does need funds to exist. The Gothamist points out that the Holocaust Museum have gift shops as ways of funding.
It also has a gift shop.
The 9/11 museum’s cavernous boutique offers a vast array of souvenir goods. For example: FDNY, NYPD and Port Authority Police T-shirts ($22) and caps ($19.95); earrings molded from leaves and blossoms of downtown trees ($20 to $68); cop and firefighter charms by Pandora and other jewelers ($65); “United We Stand” blankets.
There are bracelets, bowls, buttons, mugs, mousepads, magnets, key chains, flags, pins, stuffed animals, toy firetrucks, cellphone cases, tote bags, books and DVDs.
Even FDNY vests for dogs come in all sizes.
Among the museum shop’s specially designed items:
-?A black and white “Darkness Hoodie” printed with an image of the Twin Towers. The pullover, like other “Darkness” items, bears the words “In Darkness We Shine Brightest.” Price: $39.
-?Silk scarves printed with 1986 photos by Paula Barr, including a panoramic view of the Manhattan skyline. Another depicts “lunchtime on the WTC Plaza.” They go for $95 each.
I just cannot see some one wearing a 9-11 hoodie as a way to remember and understand what 9-11 means. I have to second the comment from Mediaite, “It’s not because the money is going to a good cause that a 9/11 gift shop makes sense, although I’m just as perplexed as everyone else about exactly who it is that will want to buy any of this shit, it’s because this memorial is meant to be a symbol of what 9/11 represents.”
Blogger Clayton Thomas Kelly Arrested After Sneaking into GOP Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran’s Wife Rose Cochran’s Nursing Home Room
Bring gutter politics to a new low …
28 year old Clayton Thomas Kelly of Pearl, Mississippi was arrested on Friday night on a charge of exploitation of a vulnerable adult after he sneaked into the nursing home room of current Republican Mississippi US Senator Thad Cochran’s wife, Rose Cochran, to photograph her and then posting the image in a video. He is being held on a $100,000 bond. Kelly, is a political blogger, who operates a “Constitutional Clayton” blog, a Youtube channel and other social media. Kelly has posted numerous pieces in support of Chris McDaniel and opposition to Cochran. He also appears to have interviewed McDaniel on video at least once. What kind of a sick SOB does something like this? One can dislike a political candidate all you want and support an opposition candidate against the establishment, but what that has to do with violating the privacy of an elderly spouse who is in a nursing home bed ridden and suffering from progressive dementia is beyond me.
Left to Right: Clayton Thomas Kelly & Chris McDaniel, pic from blog: ‘I met MS Senator Chris McDaniel’
A Pearl man who runs a political blog is accused of sneaking into a nursing home where U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran’s wife is bedridden and photographing her, then posting the image in a video political “hit piece” on the internet.
Madison Police arrested Clayton Thomas Kelly, 28, of Pearl on Friday night on a charge of exploitation of a vulnerable adult. He’s being held on a $100,000 bond.
Kelly is accused of sneaking into St. Catherine’s Village in Madison, where Rose Cochran has resided since 2000, suffering from progressive dementia and now bedridden.
The Cochran campaign is now questioning when, exactly, McDaniel campaign manager Melanie Sojourner learned about the nursing home break-in, implying that it was before news of Kelly’s arrest became public and attempting to tie his actions back to the state senator’s campaign operation. McDaniel’s coalition director told the Clarion-Ledger that he was aware of Kelly’s video, which featured the illegally obtained photograph of Rose Cochran, before Kelly’s arrest, but a campaign spokesman and McDaniel himself reiterated that Kelly had no ties to the campaign itself.
“I’ve reached out to Senator Cochran directly to express my abhorrence for the reprehensible actions of this individual,” reads the statement.
“This criminal act is deeply offensive and my team and I categorically reject such appalling behavior. My thoughts and prayers are with Senator Cochran and his family,” McDaniel said. “Politics is about the exchange of ideas and this type of action has no place in politics whatsoever and will not be tolerated.”
87 Year Old Missing Georgia Woman Shirley Dermond Found Found Dead, Body Found in Lake Oconee … Husband Previously Found Decapitated
Bizarre and Grisly murder investigation continues …
The body of 87 year old missing Shirley Dermond has been found in Lake Oconee, south of Athens, GA. The discovery was made by two fisherman Friday afternoon about five or six miles from the her home. Shirley Dermond had been missing for nearly two weeks. Authorities had believed that Shirley Dermond was abducted from her home in Reynolds Plantation, GA after the police made the grisly discovery in finding the body of her 88 year old husband, Russell Dermond, decapitated.
Shirley Dermond’s body was found in Lake Oconee, south of Athens, Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills told reporters Friday.
“We now, unfortunately, know that Shirley Dermond was murdered,” Sills said. Sills declined to discuss the condition of the body other than to say, “the head was not removed or anything like that.” Authorities were alerted Friday by two fishermen who spotted what they believed to be a body in the lake, some five or six miles from the couple’s home.
Sources tell 11Alive that two fishermen discovered the body near a dam at Lake Oconee on Friday afternoon.
“While we were riding towards the place I was going to go fishing, I noticed something that looked strange — out of the ordinary — so we approached it,” said fisherman Dennis Higgs. “When we got close enough to see what it might be — we thought it might be a buoy or something like that — when we got closer to it, we realized it was more than a buoy. It was something else, so we backed off from it. I think at 2:24, I called 9-1-1.”
Sheriff’s officials confirmed that the body found was Shirley Dermond’s.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office at 706-485-8557.
Imprisoned Murderer Joran van der Sloot to Marry 23 Year Old Leydi Carol Figueroa Uceda, Pregnant With His Child … Weddings & Parenthood, Things Natalee Holloway & Stephany Flores Will Never Experience
Just one more vindictive poke in the eye to Natalee Holloway’s Family …
May 2005 Natalee Holloway goes missing in Aruba while on vacation with other teens from Mountainbrook, Alabama and Joran van der Sloot was and still is the primary suspect in all rational thinking people’s minds in her disappearance and death. Five years to the day that Natalee went missing, May 2010 Joran van der Sloot murders 21 year old Stephany Flores and later confesses to the crime and is eventually found guilty and sentenced to 28 years in prison in Peru. Now May 2014, Joran van der Sloot through his attorney tells the world that the sociopath is getting married in a couple of weeks to 23 year old Leydi Carol Figueroa Uceda, who is pregnant with his child. Coincidence, hardly.
Sadly, neither Natalee Holloway nor Stephany Flores will ever be able to experience the joys of marriage or being a parent. Yet this sociopath is allowed to do both. One day there will be a reckoning Joran and it will not be pretty.
Hey Leydi, you may want to rethink the nuptials … it did not work out so well for the two girls above being near “The Sporter,”Natalee Holloway and Stephany Flores
He’s serving a 28-year sentence for killing a Peruvian woman. He’s also the main suspect in the disappearance of an American teenage girl. But these days, Joran van der Sloot is more focused on his wedding plans than his legal situation.
Maximo Altez, van der Sloot’s Peruvian defense attorney, told CNN the 26-year-old Dutch national is getting married “in late May or early June” to a Peruvian woman he befriended in the prison in which he’s being held in Lima, the capital.
“They met when she was visiting a relative in prison. They became friends and spent a lot of time together in his cell,” Altez said. “Unlike The United States, here in Peru loved ones or relatives can see inmates inside their jails.”
Joran van der Sloot is scheduled to be released on June 10, 2038; but according to his attorney the 28 year sentence can be reduced considerably “for good behavior.” However, Van der Sloot is then supposed to be extradited to the United States to face extortion charges. Some have speculated that Joran is marrying his prison conjugal visit partner to help him become a Peru citizen and some how lessen his chances for extradition to the US. However, as stated above by HLN correspondent Jean Casarez, there is no benefit for Van der Sloot to get married. So why? Can you just say spite from the sociopath and one more way to harass Beth Holloway and Natalee’s family. It is not lost that this is the anniversary of her death and disappearance.
EXIT QUESTION: WILL JORAN VAN DER SLOOT AND HIS SOON TO BE BRIDE LEYDI CAROL FIGUEROA UCEDU HONEYMOON IN ARUBA?

Alec Baldwin Arrested in Manhattan, NY for Disorderly Conduct … “I Want to Ride My Bicycle” the Wrong Way
HIS MOUTH FINALLY GOT HIM ARRESTED …
Alec Baldwin was arrested for disorderly conduct in NYC after being stopped by police for riding his bicycle the wrong direction down Fifth Avenue, at 16th Street, around 10:15 a.m. Tuesday. Baldwin reportedly became belligerent with the police, surprise, surprise. When Baldwin could not hand over a photo ID, they handcuffed him, loaded him into the back of a patrol car, took him to the 13th Precinct station in Gramercy Park, and seized the bicycle. Which is rather ironic that he could not, or would not produce a photo ID because isn’t it Baldwin who asks us in those credit card commercials, “What’s in your wallet?”
Baldwin was issued two summonses, one for riding a bike the wrong way and one for disorderly conduct. He was later released.
ALEC BALDWIN JUST WANTS TO RIDE HIS BICYCLE …
Actor Alec Baldwin was arrested in Manhattan for disorderly conduct after he got into a verbal confrontation with police officers who stopped him for riding his bike the wrong way down a street, a law-enforcement official said
Mr. Baldwin was allegedly riding his bicycle north on Fifth Avenue in the center of the street between 15th and 16th streets, the official said.
Officers approached Mr. Baldwin told him he “was riding his bicycle the wrong way,” an NYPD spokeswoman said.
Mr. Baldwin was not able to produce identification and “then he got belligerent and started to argue with the officers,” the spokeswoman said.
He was placed in handcuffs. Mr. Baldwin was taken to a local police precinct and was later released, the official said.
Maybe some one might want to tell Baldwin that mouthing off to the police is a no-no. But of course he managed to go off the handle and with a tirade of expletives … he got cuffed. Baldwin also used the patented elitist line, “don’t you know who I am” line.
“He became belligerent, yelling and screaming at the officers, ‘I don’t have ID. Just give me the f—–g summonses,’” one police source said.
Rene Cardona, 44, of the Bronx, backed up the cops’ account.
“They confiscated the bike from him,” he said. “He got loud.”
With Baldwin dropping F-bombs, the cops marched him to a police car, a moment captured by a lensman from InTouch Magazine.
“How old are these officers?” Baldwin groused. “They don’t even know who I am.”
The Twitter universe has fun at the expense of Alec Baldwin and his arrest at Twitchy.
Following his arrest Alec Baldwin took to Twitter and said, “New York City is a mismanaged carnival of stupidity that is desperate for revenue and anxious to criminalize behavior once thought benign.”
82 Year Old Casey Kasem of ‘American Top 40′ Fame is Missing … Judge Appoints Casey Kasem’s Daughter Kerri Kasem as Temporary Conservator of Her Father Suffering from Parkinson’s Disease (Update: Casey Kasem Found in Washington State)
BIZARRE AND SAD …
82 year old Casey Kasem, the longtime radio host of ‘American Top 40′ has been reported missing by his daughters. Sadly, the famed radio host who every week provided a count down of the ‘Top 40″ music hits and told us to ‘Keep your feet on the ground and reach for the stars’ now suffers from advanced Parkinson’s disease and can no longer speak. Many will also remember Kasem as the voice of Shaggy in the cartoon “Scooby Doo. He has been in various medical facilities chosen by his wife, Jean Kasem. However, the former radio host had been removed from Los Angeles without his children’s knowledge and has not been seen since. A judge has ordered an investigation as to the whereabouts of Casey Kasem. Jean Kasem’s attorney Craig Marcus said he did not know where the radio personality was but that he was “no longer in the United States.” Kasem’s daughter believes that her father’s wife fled the country, or possibly went to an Indian Reservation.
Sadly, there has been a long running battle between the children of Casey Kasem and his wife, Jean Kasem. Many of you may remember Jean from her role on the TV comedy hit ‘Cheers’ as the tall blonde who would enter the bar saying, “hi, gang at Cheers.”
A judge on Monday ordered an investigation into the whereabouts of Casey Kasem after an attorney for the ailing radio personality’s wife said the former “Top 40” host had been removed from Los Angeles without his children’s knowledge.
Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy ordered a court investigator and adult protective services to find out where Kasem is being treated and report back to the court. Kasem, 82, suffers from advanced Parkinson’s disease, can no longer speak and has been in various medical facilities chosen by his wife, Jean Kasem.
A judge Monday named famed radio countdown host Casey Kasem’s daughter as the temporary conservator of her ailing father, a spokeswoman said.
The conservatorship is in effect until June 20, when a hearing is scheduled on whether to make the conservatorship permanent, according to the Los Angeles County Superior Court spokeswoman Patricia Kelly.
“Justice was finally served! I just won temporary conservatorship over my father’s healthcare. We have been vindicated by the court. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes and support through this entire ordeal,” Kasem’s daughter, Kerri Kasem, posted on her Facebook page soon after the order.
American Top 40 January 31, 1981 … I remember hearing this like it was yesterday.
NBC News: Radio Icon Casey Kasem Is Ill and Missing.
In an interiew Monday night, Kerri Kasem told NBC News that she saw her father last Tuesday at a medical facility that she did not name. She described the “two-to-three hour” visit as “incredible” because he “had a smile ear to ear and told us he loved us.”
“Some of the staff said they’ve never seen him so animated and happy,” Kerri Kasem said in the interview, which will be broadcast Tuesday on TODAY. “When we went to leave, we said ‘Dad, we’re going to be back really soon.’ And he said ‘When?’ That’s the last time I saw him. That night he was taken from the facility.”
Missing radio icon Casey Kasem has been found.
Kasem’s family confirmed early Thursday that the longtime “American Top 40″ host had been located in Washington state, three days after a California judge ordered an investigation into the 82-year-old’s whereabouts.
Kitsap County sheriff’s deputies performed a welfare check Tuesday at an address provided by California Adult Protective Services, according to CNN affiliate KOMO.
Authorities found Casey and his wife visiting others at a home. The couple told deputies they were on vacation, sheriff’s department spokesman Scott Wilson told the affiliate.
After determining Casey was not in distress and was receiving appropriate care, the deputies left.
“We are grateful to local authorities for finding my Dad,” Kasem’s daughter Kerri said. “We are one step closer to bringing him home.”
24 Year Old Karen Dziewit of Chicopee, MA Faces Wiretapping Charges For Recording Her Own Arrest of Disorderly Conduct
It’s illegal to tape your own arrest, REALLY?
24 year old Karen Dziewit of Chicopee, Mass. charged with daring to record her police arrest. She was arrested over the weekend for disorderly conduct and an open container as she was being a little too loud and belligerent while drinking on Chestnut Street Sunday morning in Springfield and refused to cooperate with police. But that is not the story here. It appears the she activated the voice recording feature on her smart phone and recorded her arrest. The Chicopee woman was taken to police headquarters for booking where the officers inventoried the contents of her purse, they found the phone actively recording the entire process. They added the charge of with unlawful wiretapping.
A Chicopee woman apparently got a little too loud and belligerent while drinking on Chestnut Street Sunday morning, and refused to cooperate with police when they asked her to quiet down. When she was about to be arrested, police say the woman activated the voice recording feature on her smart phone, hid it in her purse and surreptitiously? recorded the entire arrest. Now she faces the unusual charge of unlawful wiretapping.
She was arrested. But, before she was taken into custody, she apparently started the voice recorder in her smart phone and put it in her purse.
She was taken to police headquarters for booking and as officers inventoried the contents of her purse, they found the phone actively recording the entire process.
Not sure if I agree with this one at all. The Daily Caller points out that Massachusetts s is among the least friendly states for citizens recording cops.
While it may seem absurd that a person could be prosecuted for recording the police–something that civil libertarians encourage responsible citizens to do when they are confronted by law enforcement–Massachusetts is among the least friendly states for citizens recording cops. In most states, it is either always legal to record another person, or at least always legal to record the police, who don’t have an expectation of privacy when serving in an official capacity.
Massachusetts and Illinois, however, have laws on the books requiring both parties to consent to be recorded–even if one of the parties is a cop.
Eleanor Clift Ludicrous Comments on Benghazi Terror Attacks … “Ambassador Stevens Wasn’t Murdered, He Died Of Smoke Inhalation”
Some Liberal moonbats will go to no ends to protect Hillary Clinton from her actions, or lack there of in Benghazi, including making an ass of them self.
Eleanor Clift has said some pretty ignorant things over the years, but this one might just take the cake. Not so much for her partisan, liberal, progressive partisan Democrat view point, but for the fact that she would continue to propagate a lie, a cover-up and a tape at the expense of a deceased US Ambassador. Eleanor Clift actually said on The McLaughlin Report, “I would like to point out that Ambassador Stevens was not ‘murdered, he died of smoke inhalation in a safe room in that CIA installation.”. SICK, SICK, SICK!!!
WOW … can we just say, LIAR!!! It is safe to say that no one can ever take this fool seriously anymore. She has been a liberal apologist for years, but this is beyond the pale and crazy talk. Of course her main liberal agenda was to protect Hillary Clinton, the presumptive 2016 Democrat presidential nominee. Clift ended her nonsensical ramblings by saying, “and its still a CIA and if you are going to put people on trial we should put David Petraeus on trail, not Hillary Clinton.”
Clift went on to continue to blame the video tape, which has all but been debunked at this point. Way to be kept in the informational loop Elenore. It is time to put Elenore out to politic pundit pasture. As Red State opines regarding the misguided Clift, “Next she’ll tell us that the 30o girls in Nigeria weren’t kidnapped by Islamic terrorists..they were actually just out on a school field trip, and are lost in the woods.”
Get used to this folks, defend, deflect, detract and lie to at all cost to protect Hillary Clinton from her record.
ELEANOR CLIFT: I would like to point out Ambassador Stevens was not murdered. He died of smoke inhalation in the safe room in that CIA installation.
SUSAN FERRECHIO: I don’t think that’s a fact, Eleanor.
CLIFT: I think that is a fact.
FERRECHIO: I’ve heard a drastically different story from people who are also in the know about that. So, I don’t think it is –
PAT BUCHANAN: It was a terrorist attack, Eleanor. He was murdered in a terrorist attack.
CLIFT: It was an opportunistic terrorist attack that grew out of that video.
BUCHANAN: The video had nothing to do with it.
CLIFT: There were demonstrations across the world.
88 Year Old Russell Dermond Found Murdered & Decapitated, His 87 Year Old Wife Shirley Dermond Missing in Reynolds Plantation, GA
GRUESOME MURDER AND WIFE MISSING IN REYNOLDS PLANTATION, GA.
88 year old Russell Dermond was found murdered in his garage and his wife, 87 year old Shirley Dermond is missing and believed abducted. She is not believed to be a suspect in her husband’s death. Authorities confirmed that Russell Dermond was found decapitated. Investigators believe Russell Dermond was killed between last Friday and Sunday, and they’re still searching for his severed head. Shirley Dermond is 5-foot-2 and weighs 148 pounds. She has gray hair and blue eyes. She is believed to be in danger. In an area where there is almost literally no crime, the the two lived in a multimillion dollar gated community. Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills said he doesn’t believe the attack was random, partly because there was no evidence of forced entry or a struggle.
Investigators are treating her disappearance as an abduction, he said. There is no indication she’s a suspect, and there’s “plenty” to indicate she was taken, he said. Her pocketbook, cell phone and vehicle were all at the million-dollar waterfront home where her husband’s headless body was found.
Investigators believe Russell Dermond was killed between last Friday and Sunday, and they’re still searching for his severed head, Sills told reporters, describing the case as “very unusual” and the most frustrating homicide of his career.
“I don’t think it’s a random incident. I think for whatever reason these people were singled out for this,” Sills said. “They live in the most exclusive neighborhood, or one of the most exclusive neighborhoods, in this county. … They’re on a cul-de-sac in a gated, multimillion dollar resort community that we have no crime in.”
Investigators fear Dermond’s 87-year-old wife, Shirley, was abducted or killed. They were searching for her with the help of the FBI.
“We looked in the woods adjacent to the house, we looked in the lake,” Putnam County Sheriff Howard Sills said during a news conference. “Her pocketbook and things like that are there, her cellphone is there, the car is there — we don’t have anything to track.”
“I certainly hope that she’s still alive but I’m not overly optimistic because of her husband,” he said Thursday afternoon. “If it’s an abduction, you would expect some sort of extortion demand. If it was an assassination you would think both of the people would be there — both bodies would be there.”
Anyone with more information should call the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office at 706-485-8557.
