Finally After 25 Years, Michael Taylor Executed in Missouri for the 1989 Kidnap, Rape & Murder of 15 Year Old Ann Harrison in Kansas City
IT’S ABOUT TIME … GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBISH!
47 year old Michael Taylor was finally put to death and pronounced dead Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 12: 10 a.m. at the state prison in Bonne Terre, Missouri. Taylor was executed for the 1989 rape and murder of 15 year old Ann Harrison, as the Kansas City teen waited for the school bus. 1989!!! Are you kidding that it took 25 years for the appeals process to run their course before this rapist/murder was given the death penalty? UNREAL! There is some thing serious wrong with a legal system that takes a quarter of a century to provide justice. Isn’t it amazing, sickening, that we have a system that is more concerned with how the convicted murderers die than the victim?
Om March 22, 1989 Michael Taylor and Roderick Nunley abducted Ann Harrison as she waited for the school bus in her driveway, pulled her into a stolen car, took her to a home, raped her and then fatally stabbed Harrison as she pleaded for her life. Roderick Nunley has also been sentenced to death.
A Missouri inmate was executed early Wednesday for abducting, raping and killing a Kansas City teenager as she waited for her school bus in 1989, marking the state’s fourth lethal injection in as many months.
Michael Taylor, 47, was pronounced dead at 12: 10 a.m. at the state prison in Bonne Terre. Federal courts and the governor had refused last-minute appeals from his attorneys, who argued that the execution drug purchased from a compounding pharmacy could have caused Taylor inhuman pain and suffering.
Taylor offered no final statement, though he mouthed silent words to his parents, clergymen and other relatives who witnessed his death. As the process began, he took two deep breaths before closing his eyes for the last time. There were no obvious signs of distress.
“Ann was a very loving, caring, innocent young girl. She loved her sports, she loved her music, most of all she loved her family,” her uncle Paul Harrison said.
With the killers still making headlines, the hurt is still there for the family.
“It just brings back a lot of bad memories. It’s also justice being served,” Paul said.
Of course Michael Taylor’s defense attorneys questioned the execution drug purchased from a compounding pharmacy that could have caused Taylor inhuman pain and suffering and looked for a stay. Thankfully, U.S. District Judge Beth Phillips and the Eighth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied several petitions on Tuesday night for a last minute stay or further judicial review and fustice was finally served after 25 years. However, the best rebuttal to that ridiculous comment came from Pete Edlund, the retired Kansas City police detective who led the investigation into the teenager’s death who said, “Cruel and unusual punishment would be if we killed them the same way they killed Annie Harrison. Get a damn rope, string them up, put them in the gas chamber. Whatever it takes.”
The rest of the city may remember her as the girl kidnapped from in front of her house while waiting for the school bus.
But to her friends, who have grown into women with careers and children of their own, she is forever in their thoughts as that smiling, pretty, brown-haired girl who loved softball and music.
“Ann deserves to be remembered for the wonderful spirit that she was, and continues to be, for her family, friends and community,” said Tina Thomasee.
Next month, on the anniversary of her death, friends are planning a ceremony to commemorate her life.
Barrett and Ann shared classes. They played on the same softball team, coached by Ann’s father, and they were bandmates. Ann played the flute, and Barrett wonders if Ann would have pursued a career in music.
“She loved playing the flute,” Barrett said. “She was really good.”
Ann’s death was a life-altering event for Barrett and other children who knew her.
“It just wasn’t in my realm of possibility at that age,” she said.
Previously, they rode their bikes around the neighborhood and walked everywhere without worry.
“After that, no more,” she said. “It changed the way I think of the world.”
Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice Arrested for Assault, Domestic Violence of his Fiance Janay Palmer in Atlantic City, NJ … Fiance Charged Too
What is going on with the NFL and violent crimes with its players … Another black eye for the NFL?
It would seem that no one taught Ray Rice that you are not supposed to hit girls. Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice was arrested last week on simple assault charges in Atlantic City, New Jersey for the alleged assault of his fiance. The video below from TMZ Rice can be seen dragging, what appears to be his unconscious, fiance out of an elevator after an altercation. Both Rice and his fiance, Janay Palmer, were charged with simple assault-domestic violence. Hmm, “simple assault”, looks more like the knock out game. Rice’s fiance appears to be out, off her feet in the video.
According to an Atlantic City police statement, police reviewed surveillance footage and “it appeared both parties were involved in a physical altercation. The complaint summons indicates that both Rice and Palmer struck each other with their hands.”
A police summons obtained by 11 News on Wednesday reads Rice assaulted Palmer “specifically by striking her with his hand, rendering her unconscious at the Revel casino.”
The summons also stated that Palmer attempted to “cause bodily injury to Raymell Rice, specifically by striking him with her hand while at the Revel casino.”
Rice and Palmer were charged with simple assault-domestic violence and were both released on a summons to appear in court.
The police summons can be read HERE.
The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office released the following statement on the incident.
“The domestic violence incident in Atlantic City involving Ray Rice has been referred to the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office for review. The Atlantic City Police Department has requested the Prosecutor’s Office review the case to ensure all appropriate charges are considered. The matter remains under investigation by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office in conjunction with the Atlantic City Police Department.

School Bus Driver Cathy Goetz Charged With Assault, Menacing & Child Endangering of an 8 Year Old Autistic Boy
This is truly troubling and disturbing …
43 year old Cathy Goetz, an Ashland City, Ohio Schools bus driver has been suspended without pay and charged with assault, menacing and child endangering of an 8 year old autistic boy. The disturbing crime was caught on the bus video on January 17, 2014. Goetz is seen smacking the boy as he continuously screams. After the boy is hit by the bus driver, he is heard threatening to kill her. She then called bus dispatcher, who called 911. When the police arrived Goetz told the officer that the boy had threatened her, hit her and kicked her, but conveniently failed to mention the fact that she slapped the boy and grabbed him around the collar. Goetz also claims she did not know the boy had autism.
Really, where should we begin? We have a bus driver who has no idea the make up of the children she is responsible for driving and being in her care. We have a bus driver who thinks it is perfectly okay to slap and assault 8 year olds. We have a bus driver who thinks it is perfectly fine to lie to police and tell them the truth of what actually happened. And we have a bus driver who still after having video and audio evidence of her crime still pleading not guilty.
Warning: VIDEO is disturbing
An Ashland City Schools bus driver has been suspended without pay and is facing criminal charges after she was caught on video slapping an 8-year-old-boy.
The incident happened on January 17, and the video from an on-board camera shows driver Cathy Goetz interacting with the boy, who was upset when he got on the bus.
According to the police report, the 43-year-old told investigators she did not know the child was “autistic,” and that when he started screaming, she tried to get him to stop.
The video shows that the boy continued to scream, and Goetz eventually stopped the bus and confronted him.
She is seen in the video smacking the boy, and he is then heard threatening to kill her.
Goetz then called her bus dispatcher, who called 911.
However, VIDEOS can be a b*tch, can’t they? When the police eventually were able to access and watched the video of what really took placer, Cathy Goetz was charged with assault, menacing and child endangering.
KNOCK OUT GAME Continues: ‘Knock That White Boy [Cracker] Out’ … Arrests Made After Mob of Black Teens Attack Disabled White Vet … Hate Crime!!!
Just curious … is it so hard for the media to report a crime accurately … not once in any of the written articles do they reference specifically that this was a black on white crime and namely mention a mob of black teens assaulted a white man. You have to watch the VIDEO to hear the reporter say it.
Arrests have been made in the “knock out game” assault of a white, disabled veteran in Cleveland, Ohio. A mob of black teens harassed, attacked, robbed and taunted with racial slurs their white victim near Public Square. Matthew Robinson was riding the RTA’s Healthline when a group of black teen punks began harassing him and followed him off the bus and down the street to 6th and Euclid. Robinson said that the mob hurled threats and racial slurs at him as they were saying, ‘Knock that boy out!’ ‘White boy.’ ‘Cracker.’ They were saying, ‘Knock that white boy out.’” Hmm … No hate crime here, eh? Three suspects have been arrested by Cleveland and RTA police, Kenneth Matthews, Ronald Reid Williams and an unnamed 16 year old female minor. The unnamed girl had actually filmed the attack with her cell phone, and the video was still on her phone at the time of her apprehension. One of the two teens has also been charged in two other robberies similar to this one. Good grief, just send this punk to prison and do society a favor before he kills some one.
Sadly, not one person stepped into help this man. Not one. Let’s see if the Cleveland DA’s office has the CO-JONES to charge these punks with a “hate crime”.
Matthew Robinson, Disabled Army Veteran, Attacked By group of black teens in Cleveland, OH
A disabled Army vet spoke out about the latest attack that happened Friday, Feb. 7, 2014.
Matthew Robinson told our Ed Gallek he was riding RTA’s Healthline when six to eight teenagers surrounded him on the bus, and then started following him.
Then, he said they attacked, took his stuff, and videotaped what they were doing.
The incident went down at 6th and Euclid, and the crowd scattered when cops showed up.
Robinson told 19 Action News, “What they were saying was, ‘Knock that boy out!’ ‘White boy.’ ‘Cracker.’ They were saying, ‘Knock that white boy out.’”
The victim said not only did the group taunt him with racial slurs, they also videotaped the incident.
Cleveland Police hustled and found three of the suspects running from the scene.
They apprehended an 18 and 19-year-old guy, plus a 16 year-old-girl who had the video on her phone.
Democrats Courting the Felony Vote … Atty Gen. Eric Holder Urges States to Lift Bans on Felons’ Voting
Obama administration looks to get the “felon” vote …
Hmm, do you think those that would abduct and abuse a child the right to vote? Do you think child rapists should have the right to vote? Do you think that child murderers should have the right to vote? Do you think individuals who would partake in the human and sex trafficking of minors and adults should have the right to vote? Do you think an individual that would physically assault a woman, rape and molest a woman and murder a woman the right to vote? Barack Obama’s AG Eric Holder does. So who really has a war on woman and children?
Why would anyone want a man like convicted child rapist Eric Bradley or anyone like him who had the ability to be paroled, a commuted sentence or serving time the right yo vote ever!!!
Convicted Child rapist Eric Bradly
Imagine this, Attorney General Eric Holder is urging states to lift bans on laws that make it illegal for felons to vote. Of course this has nothing to do with the studies that show that felons who have been denied the right to vote were far more likely to have voted for Democrats than for Republicans. Of course Holder has no authority to change such law as this is a State’s right to pass their own voting laws, but far be it from the Obama administration to over-extend their Constitutional authority. This request by Holder is most likely a non-starter and going nowhere, but that will not stop Holder and the Obama administration to use another issue to be divisive along racial lines. This is just more gutter politics from the Obama administration looking to scrape up any vote they can from the bottom of the barrel.
Really? We do not have voter ID laws in the United States to make sure that there is not voter fraud going on in elections, but instead Eric Holder wants to allow felons to vote after they have served their sentence. Truth be told, he probably would not care if they had the right to vote while they were serving time in prison. Its an Obama world.
Hmm, Holder wants felons to vote but thought the above NBPP thugs did nothing wrong with voter intimidation
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. called Tuesday for the repeal of laws that prohibit millions of felons from voting, underscoring the Obama administration’s determination to elevate issues of criminal justice and race in the president’s second term and create a lasting civil rights legacy.
In a speech at Georgetown University, Mr. Holder described today’s prohibitions — which in some cases bar those convicted from voting for life — as a vestige of the racist policies of the South after the Civil War, when states used the criminal justice system to keep blacks from fully participating in society.
“Those swept up in this system too often had their rights rescinded, their dignity diminished, and the full measure of their citizenship revoked for the rest of their lives,” Mr. Holder said. “They could not vote.”
Mr. Holder has no authority to enact the changes he called for, given that states establish the rules under which people can vote. And state Republican leaders made clear that Mr. Holder’s remarks, made to a receptive audience at a civil rights conference, would not move them.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on Tuesday urged states to repeal laws that prohibit felons from voting, a move that would restore the right to vote to millions of people.
The call was mostly symbolic — Mr. Holder has no authority to enact these changes himself — but it marked the attorney general’s latest effort to eliminate laws that he says disproportionately keep minorities from the polls. “It is unwise, it is unjust, and it is not in keeping with our democratic values,” Mr. Holder said at civil rights conference at Georgetown University. These laws deserve to be not only reconsidered, but repealed.”
African-Americans represent more than a third of the estimated 5.8 million people who are prohibited from voting, according to the Sentencing Project, a research group that favors more liberal sentencing policies. And in Florida, Kentucky, and Virginia, more than one in five African-Americans has lost the right to vote.
AMBER ALERT Issued for Missing 3 Year Old Erielys Ahorrio & 4 Year Old John Ahorrio in Lancaster, PA … Abducted at Gun Point by Father, 23 Year Eddie Ahorrio, Jr & Eddie Ahorrio Sr. (Update: Amber Alert Canceled, Childred Safe, 1 Suspect Arrested)

According to accounts, the two children were taken at gun point by their father, 23 year old Eddie Ahorrio, Jr. and his father, 47 year Eddie Ahorrio, Sr. They entered the home at Almanac Avenue home around 7:30 pm. The two men old drove off with the children in a black Nissan Altima with Pennsylvania license plate # JJG-8170. It is believed they might be driving from Pennsylvania to Massachusetts. if traveling to the Bay State, it is safe to say that these two thugs will probably not take highways and toll roads. Police and the public should keep eyes out on the lesser traveled local roads from PA to MA (map) like Rt 22 in PA, Rt 46 in NJ and Merritt Pkwy and Rt1 in CT and Rt. 1 in MA.
The children are considered in danger as Lancaster police have stated there was a domestic dispute at the house last week in which Ahorrio Jr. threatened to harm both the children and their mother.
Erielys Ahorrio, 3, and her 4-year-old brother John Ahorrio were taken from a home along Almanac Avenue in Lancaster, Pa. at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, state police said. Lancaster is about 70 miles west of Philadelphia.
State police identified the abductors as 23-year-old Eddie Ahorrio, Jr. and 47-year-old Eddie Ahorrio, Sr.
Missing: 4 year old John Ahorrio (left) and his 3 year old sister Erielys Ahorrio (rt)
UPDATE I: Police have released more details on the abduction of two small children from their Lancaster City home tonight … History of violence.
Ahorrio Sr. had a pipe wrench and Ahorrio Jr. had a gun, both of which were displayed. The children were inside with their mother, their mother’s boyfriend, and the boyfriend’s sister. The boyfriend, whose name was not released, was attacked by Arrohio Sr. with the pipe wrench and injured. There is no word as of right now on the extent of his injuries. Lancaster police told CBS 21 there was a domestic dispute at the house last week in which Ahorrio Jr. threatened to harm both the children and their mother. When caught, the two men are facing charges of robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, and kidnapping.
A vehicle matching the description of a vehicle reported by the Amber Alert has been stopped and a person was earlier taken into handcuffs, SkyFOX showed. This is occurring on I-76 Eastbound on Route One.
Pennsylvania State Police earlier issued an Amber Alert for two children allegedly abducted at gunpoint from Lancaster City by two men, and their vehicle’s last known location was in New Jersey.
Action News has confirmed that two children who were the subject of an hours-long Amber Alert search have been found safe, and that one suspect is in custody.
The resolution to the overnight search came just before 8:00 a.m. Friday after police stopped a 1994 black Nissan Altima on Route 1 at Route 76 in Philadelphia.
Police say the car was carrying 3-year-old Erielys Ahorrio and 4-year-old John Ahorrio, as well as one of two suspects sought in their abduction.
DOUBLE STANDARD IN KNOCK OUT GAME HATE CRIME CHARGES …
A federal grand jury in Houston, Texas indicted 27 year old Conrad Alvin Barrett on Thursday for hate crime charges. Conrad Alvin Barrett was arrested in connection with the “knockout game” assault of a 79 year old black man. The elderly man suffered a broken jaw. According to reports, Barrett recorded himself on his cellphone attacking the 79 year old man, laughing and saying “Knockout” as he ran away, as the man fell to the ground.
A white Houston-area man accused of sucker punching an elderly black man has been indicted on a hate crime charge.
A federal grand jury in Houston indicted 27-year-old Conrad Alvin Barrett on Thursday.
Investigators say Barrett slugged the 79-year-old victim, breaking his jaw in two places, in a Nov. 24 attack in Katy. They say he laughed and shouted “knockout” as the man fell to the ground.
Investigators say Barrett videoed the attack on his cellphone and shared the recording.
Is this a hate crime, probably so. However, so are the many other black on white “knock out game” assaults that go uncharged. The majority of attacks in this sick and twisted “knock out game” have been black on white crimes, yet it is only the few cases of white on black crime that get charged as hate crimes. So why the double standard from the Eric Holder DOJ? And we thought that Justice is supposed to be blind.
The following was not considered a hate crime “knock out game” assault by a young black punk on an elderly white woman but instead New York cops call video taped ‘Knockout’ attack harassment. Are you friggin kidding me?
WACO Texas Man Stabs Girlfriend with Knife for Bringing Him Pizza Instead of Chicken Sandwich for Lunch … Charged with Aggravated Assault
Talk about taking the TV ad ‘EAT MOR CHICKIN’ a bit too seriously …
A Waco, Texas man has been arrested and accused of of stabbing his girlfriend after she brought home pizza instead of a chicken sandwich that he wanted for lunch. Michael Corsey has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Seems rather reasonable to act this way when not getting a chicken sandwich, NOT! Corsey also reportedly choked the victim and struck her in the face.
McLennan County jail records show Michael Corsey of Waco was being held Saturday on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Online jail records do not list bond or an attorney for Corsey, who was arrested Friday.
Waco police say Corsey allegedly grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed the woman because he had asked for a chicken sandwich, but she brought home pizza. Police say the victim was also choked and struck in the face.
Portland Pimp Sirgiorgiro Clardy Sues Nike for $100 Million for Lack of Warning Label That Shoes Could be Used as Dangerous Weapon After Beating John with Air Jordans
IT’S GOTTA BE THE SHOES … File this one under, and you thought you had heard it all, subtitled, ‘Pimpin’ Aint Easy.
A Portland, Oregon pimp, Sirgiorgiro Clardy, has filed a $100 million lawsuit against Nike. This fool is actually making the claim that Chairman Phil Knight and other executives failed to properly label his Air Jordan’s as dangerous weapons and is partially responsible e for a brutal beating of a “John” where as a result he was sentenced to 100 years in prison. Clardy was wearing a pair of Air Jordan’s when he attacked an 18-year-old woman he forced to work as an escort and repeatedly stomped the face of a john who was trying to skip out on a trick without paying Clardy’s prostitute in June 2012. I guess it is good he didn’t have his Timberland’s on, he would have been tried for murder. Clardy filed his suit this week in Multnomah County Circuit Court and will be representing himself.
Jurors early in 2013 found him guilty of second-degree assault for using his Jordans — a dangerous weapon — to beat the john’s face to a pulp. The man required stitches and plastic surgery on his nose.
The jury also found him guilty of robbing the john and beating the 18-year-old woman he forced to work as his prostitute. She was injured so badly that she bled from her ears.
In his three-page complaint handwritten from the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution in Pendleton, Clardy claims that Nike, Chairman Phil Knight and other executives failed to warn consumers that the shoes could be used as a weapon to cause serious injury or death.
“Under product liability there is a certain standard of care that is required to be up-held by potentially dangerous product …” wrote Clardy, who is representing himself. “Do (sic) to the fact that these defendants named in this Tort claim failed to warn of risk or to provide an adequate warning or instruction it has caused personal injury in the likes of mental suffering.”
As expected, Clardy has quite the past criminal record. See you in 100 years!
Snake on a Plane …
Joe Hundley, the Idaho man who plead guilty to slapping a crying toddler aboard a Delta flight last February, has been sentenced to 8 months in federal prison. Hundley also used a racial slur toward the mother of the 19 month old boy when he began to cry saying, “shut that ni**er baby up.” Hundley’s lawyer claimed that Hundley was under distress while heading to Atlanta to decide whether or not to take his son, who was in a coma due to an insulin overdose, off of life support. Hundley’s son died the day after the flight. However, even though Hundley took a plea deal and prosecutors recommended six months in prison, the judge imposed a higher sentence in part because of Hundley’s criminal history, which includes a prior assault.
Joe Hundley, an Idaho man who pleaded guilty to slapping a crying toddler on an Atlanta-bound flight, was sentenced to eight months in federal prison Monday.
Hundley pleaded guilty in October after reaching a plea agreement with federal prosecutors.
Prosecutors say Hundley also used a racial slur to refer to the 19-month-old boy, who’s black, and hit him under the eye as the flight from Minneapolis descended to the Atlanta airport last February.
