Hate crime committed in Greenwich Village …
The NY Post is reporting that a suspected hate crime was committed in NYC, as a gay man was shot dead after the gun man shouted a homophobic slur. The actual headline was, ‘Gay man shot dead in Village after gunman shouted homophobic slurs: authorities’. The New York Times reported, ‘In Shadow of the Stonewall Inn, a Gay Man Is Killed’. CBS News, ‘Police: Gunman Used Anti-Gay Slurs Before Killing Man In Greenwich Village’. Hmm, there seems to be something missing from the descriptive nature of the headlines. The gunman was Hispanic, not white. Personally, I believe murder is murder and I do not believe one is worse than the other (unless it is the murder of a child), but if you are going to charge it as a “hate crime,” than it should be paramount to get the description of the suspect correct. 32 year old Marc Carson was walking with a friend in the Village when after having a gay slur shouted at them around midnight, they were approached by 33 year old Elliot Morales pulled out a 38-caliber revolver and shot Carson dead. Yet another senseless killing. Now unless the media want to report Morales as being a “white” Hispanic like they did when George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin, then lets call the suspect for what he was.
A gay man was gunned down in Greenwich Village early yesterday morning by an armed bigot who hurled homophobic slurs at him — and claimed to be the Newtown, Conn. killer before the murder, police said today.
Marc Carson, 32, was walking with a pal on Sixth Avenue near West Eighth Street about midnight when they were approached by Elliot Morales, 33 and two other Hispanic males, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.
One man snarled homophobic slurs at the men and asked them if they were “gay wrestlers,” Kelly said.
Another thing that needs to be asked in this senseless shooting and murder of an innocent individual. How are those gun laws working in NYC Mayor Bloomberg? Like all laws, especially gun laws, they only affect law-abiding citizens.
Daily Commentary – Tuesday, May 14, 2013 – The 12 Year Old Stepbrother of Leila Fowler Arrested for Murder
- 12 year old brother charged with homicide in the stabbing death of his 8 year old stepsister.
12 Year Old Brother of Leila Fowler Arrested for Homicide in Stabbing Death of 8 Year Old Girl in Calaveras County, CA (VIDEO)
Just when you thought you have witnessed it all …
The 12 year old brother of murdered 8 year old Leila Fowler has been arrested in the stabbing death of his sister. Leila Fowler was murdered and found stabbed to death in her Valley Springs, CA home on April 27, 2013. An autopsy determined that Leila Fowler died of shock and bleeding as a result of multiple stab wounds. A massive manhunt was conducted after the 12 year old boy, who was babysitting for his little sister, said to police that Leila was killed during a home invasion by a tall white/Latino male with long hair. In the beginning, the brother’s description had corroboration; however, a witness reported seeing the same man, but later recanted her statement. The search for a home intruder has turned into the unthinkable … her 12 year old brother has been arrested for her death and will be charged with murder.
The brother of 8-year-old Leila Fowler, the Calaveras County girl stabbed to death last month, has been arrested for investigation of homicide, the sheriff announced Saturday night.
Calaveras County Sheriff Gary Kuntz, speaking at the Valley Springs sheriff’s substation, said the girl’s 12-year-old brother was taken into custody at 5:10 p.m., according to a webcast of the press conference.
The brother, who has not been named, had told authorities he found his sister with stab wounds at noon April 27 while his parents were away from the house.
Leila’s brother was taken into custody at 5:10 p.m. Saturday and police hastily called a news conference to announce the arrest. How does a 12 year old brother stab his own sister multiple times and then concoct a story that some one lese did it? What type of sociopath have we got on our hands?
“Citizens of Calaveras County, you can sleep a little better tonight,” Kuntz said.
Authorities spent over 2,000 hours on the investigation “to provide Leila Fowler’s family answers to her death,” the sheriff said.
Kuntz said the investigation was ongoing. He declined to provide further details.
46 Year Old Soccer Referee Ricardo Portillo of Salt Lake City, UT Who was Punched in Head by Teenage Player During a Game Has Died
Just senseless … Folks, its just a game and now this teenager’s life is over as he knows it and a 46 year old man reffing a game is dead.
Ricardo Portillo, the 46 year old soccer referee from Salt Lake City, UT who was punched in the head by a teenage player during a game after he had called a penalty on, has died. Portillo called a penalty on the teenage giving him a yellow card. The unnamed teenager then struck Portillo in the side of the head whereas the 46 year old man slipped into a coma and suffered from swelling in his brain. The teen, whose name hasn’t been released because of his age, was booked into juvenile detention on suspicion of aggravated assault. Look for that to get escalated to murder. Who does this? Punching a referee? So much for respecting authority. Sadly, Ricardo Portillo’s daughters had previously begged him to stop refereeing in a soccer league because of the growing risk of violence from angry players. Unbelievable. This 17 year old punk should be tried as an adult for murder and put away forever.
Ricardo Portillo of Salt Lake City passed away at the hospital, where he was being treated following the assault last weekend, Unified police spokesman Justin Hoyal said Saturday night.
Police have accused a 17-year-old player in a recreational soccer league of punching Portillo after the man called a foul on him and issued him a yellow card.
“The suspect was close to Portillo and punched him once in the face as a result of the call,” Hoyal said in a press release.
The teen, whose name hasn’t been released because of his age, has been booked into juvenile detention on suspicion of aggravated assault.
Hoyal said authorities will consider additional charges since Portillo has died.
He said an autopsy is planned. No cause of death was released.
The teenager was playing goalie during a game at Eisenhower Junior High School in Taylorsville when Portillo issued him a yellow card for pushing an opposing forward trying to score. In soccer, a yellow card is given as a warning to a player for an egregious violation of the rules. Two yellow cards lead to a red card and expulsion from the game.
The teenager, quite a bit heavier than Portillo, began arguing with the referee, then punched him in the face. Portillo seemed fine at first, then asked to be held because he felt dizzy. He sat down and started vomiting blood, triggering his friend to call an ambulance.
When police arrived around noon, the teenager was gone and Portillo was laying on the ground in the fetal position. Through translators, Portillo told emergency workers that his face and back hurt and he felt nauseous. He had no visible injuries and remained conscious. He was considered to be in fair condition when they took him to the Intermountain Medical Center.
But when Portillo arrived to the hospital, he slipped into a coma with swelling in his brain. Johana Portillo called detectives to let them know his condition had worsened.
Newtown, CT Shooter Adam Lanza Researched Mass Murderers Prior to Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre
In the end, are mass murders as simple as one sick, mentally deranged individual trying to out do the previous one?
As reported at the Hartford Courant, Adam Lanza, the individual responsible for the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newtown, CT that left 26 dead, conducted research on several mass murders. There has been previous news accounts that investigators had found news articles about Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik at Lanza’s Newtown home. Now sources are saying that the investigators also found articles and other documents related to other mass murders in one of two bedrooms he used in the house that he shared with his mother, Nancy. Lanza shot and killed his mother first in the home before he went to the elementary school and went on a mass murder spree.
Another reason to monitor your crazy children … Adam Lanza researched mass murders, prior to his own
As we have stated in the past, no gun ban that Dianne Feinstein, Democrats and Barack Obama can dream up to punish law abiding Second Amendment Americans is going to prevent a mass murder where we have severely deranged individuals who are hell-bent on outdoing the previous deranged mass murderer. These crazoids are trying to outdo each other. This is about crazy, not guns.
Before carrying out the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Adam Lanza conducted research on several mass murders, sources close to the investigation into the shooting have told The Courant.
The Courant had previously reported that investigators found news articles about Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik at Lanza’s Newtown home. Sources now say that investigators found articles and other documents related to other mass murders in one of two bedrooms he used in the house that he shared with his mother, Nancy.
Lanza killed 26 people, including 20 first-graders, on the morning of Dec. 14 before taking his own life as police closed in. Lanza had first shot and killed his mother at their house.
State police gave the victims’ families, Sandy Hook teachers and first-responders an update on the investigation last week in which, sources said, they discussed the theory that Lanza was trying to outdo other killers.
From The LA Times:
The Stamford Advocate, citing an unnamed source, said officials found documents on “virtually every mass murder” in the United States and elsewhere after searching the Lanza home.
The source said they found “a lot of material” in particular on Charles Carl Roberts IV, who attacked an Amish schoolhouse in 2006, killing five girls.
The Associated Press also reported that literature on other mass shootings was found at his house.
Missing 20th Century Fox Movie Executive Gavin Smith’s Car Found at Storage Facility Linked to John Creech in Jail on Unrelated Drug Conviction … Police Suspect Homicide
BREAK IN THE CASE OF MISSING GAVIN SMITH …
Gavin Smith, a 20th Century Fox movie executive has been missing since May 1, 2012 when he was last seen leaving a friend’s house in Oak Park, CA. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is saying that the Mercedes-Benz registered to Gavin Smith has been found Thursday, March 14 at a Simi Valley storage facility. The storage facility was linked to John Creech who is currently in-custody at Men’s Central Jail on an unrelated narcotics conviction. Authorities believe now that Gavin Smith is dead and a victim of a homicide.
Southern California authorities say they’ve found the car of a 20th Century Fox executive who vanished nearly a year ago and they now believe he is dead.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says a Mercedes-Benz registered to Gavin Smith was found Thursday at a Simi Valley storage facility.
Authorities say that the storage facility was linked to a man who’s jailed on an unrelated drug conviction.
UPDATE I: Gavin Smith’s Car Found at Storage Facility linked to John Creech who is currently I jail on unrelated drug conviction … Creech’s wife allegedly had an affair with Smith
Creech is a convicted drug dealer whose wife allegedly had an affair with Smith.
Chandrika Creech met Smith in therapy, according to a person familiar with the case who did not want to be named because the investigation is ongoing.
Based on the vehicle’s condition and information developed from the investigation, homicide detectives are now investigating the case as a homicide, a sheriff’s statement said.
Smith’s body has not yet been recovered, sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore said.
UPDATE II: from the UK Daily Mail - ‘This was in fact a murder’: Missing movie executive WAS killed, say police, as they find his Mercedes in the garage of his mistress’ drug dealing husband.
Missing Hollywood executive Gavin Smith was murdered, the Los Angeles sheriff said last night, as they found his car in the garage belonging to a person of interest in the case.
Smith went missing on May 1, 2012, and though investigators had a number of leads, they never found concrete proof of the 20th Century Fox executive’s death.
That all changed last night when the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says the Mercedes-Benz registered to Gavin Smith was found at a Simi Valley storage facility that belonged to John Creech.
Mr Creech is the husband of Smith’s purported mistress, Chandrika Creech, and he is now in jail on unrelated drug charges.
UPDATE III: Police Say, Missing Fox Exec Had Relationship With Drug Dealer’s Wife
Creech, who is currently serving eight years in Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail, has been named a person of interest in the case.
Smith had a relationship with Creech’s wife, Chandrika Creech, sheriff’s officials said, but they would not comment on the nature of the relationship.
The two apparently met in rehab.

Carl Pistorius, the Brother of Oscar Pistorius Also Facing Homicide Charges in Death of a Female Motorcyclist in 2008 Traffic Accident
South African murder charges, keeping it all in the Pistorius family … Carl Pistorius is facing Homicide charges as well?
As if the bizarre nature of the Oscar Pistorius murder trial could not get any more bizarre? First we are presented with the premeditated murder charges against one of South Africa’s most beloved and recognizable individuals. Oscar “the Blade Runner” Pistorius has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Pistorius is claiming that it was an accident and thought he was firing at an intruder who was entering his home. Of course it seems rather unbelievable that one would know that their girlfriend was in their home, hears a noise, then fires four gun shots into a locked bathroom door without first asking who’s there or first making sure your girlfriend who is supposed to be in the bed is safe. Oh well, that’s for a judge to decide after listening to the evidence. The trial then got more bizarre when it was learned that the lead investigator in the murder case is also facing murder charges of his own.
Now we learn that Oscar Pistorius’ brother Carl is facing homicide charges of his own. Carl Pistorius is facing homicide charges in the death of a female motorcyclist stemming from a 2008 traffic accident. The motorcyclist died in a hospital a couple of days after the accident. Culpable homicide refers to “unlawful negligent killing.” in South Africa. Prosecutors claim that Carl Pistorius was driving recklessly in Vanderbijlpark, South Africa, when he crashed with the motorcyclist in the daytime. Carl Pistorius’ defense attorney is disputing the charges and claims that the female motorist rode into his client. Carl Pistorius is supposed to be in court in March 2013.
Carl Pistorius is charged with culpable homicide over the death of a woman motorcyclist in a traffic accident in 2008, his lawyer said.
The case has no relation to the charges against Oscar Pistorius over the shooting of Reeva Steenkamp.
The Paralympic star – who was released on bail on Friday – denies murder.
The charge against Carl Pistorius over an accident involving his car in which a woman on a motorcycle died has only just emerged.
It was confirmed to the BBC by Pistorius family lawyer Kenny Oldwage, who said Carl appeared in court the day before his brother’s judgement in the bail hearing last week.
He is due to appear again in March.
