Jeffrey Dahmer was originally found guilty of 17 counts of murder, but this was later reduced to 15. He attempted to plead not guilty by reason of insanity, but he was declared sane due to the fact that he made intelligent attempts to cover his tracks and hide corpses - (hypothetically, an insane person would have no real understanding of right or wrong and wouldn’t see any reason to cover a murder up). After his sentencing of 957 years imprisonment, Dahmer was sent to Colombia Correctional Institution where an outraged inmate slashed his throat with a razor blade, but failed to kill him. Although he had survived, his luck did not last, as on November 28 1994 he was fatally bludgeoned with a metal bar by Christopher Scarver. 

so on fb one of the trending topics is officer asshole darren wilson being CLEARED of charges for murder.

literally the entry right before that on the page is talking about how all the outside investigations are in agreement that ferguson shows intense racial bias and needs an overhaul.
but they let him off.

so what they’re basically saying is they agree everything’s all wrong and the officers are doing wrong but they’re only going to ‘try’ to fix things going forward. But they’re gonna defend the officers who have already done evil. just cause they like them.

I’m so disgusted I could scream

"My name is Picasso, like the artist. Mama said she named me Picasso because he painted about truth, but I think Mama mis­interpreted his words. What Pablo Picasso said was this: Art is a lie that makes us realize truth. What I think he meant is that great art is born from skillful lying, and something else, something much more profound, that lying is okay as long as its end goal is altruistic. Well that’s how I read it anyway, and that’s how I’ve been able to justify what happened that day."

Picasso Lane is twelve years old when her father, Oliver, is murdered at their summer beach house in North Carolina. Her mother, Diana, is the primary suspect … at least until the police discover his second wife, Jewels, and his third, Bert. The new widows say they have never met—but Picasso knows otherwise. She remembers the late-night visits, the hushed phone calls, and the whispered planning…®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news

This is a really good article about the Chapel Hill murders.

A motive for the shooting may never be known. But interviews with more than a dozen of the victims’ friends and family members, lawyers, police officers and others make two central points: Before the shootings, the students took concerted steps to appease a menacing neighbor, and none were parked that day in a way that would have set off an incident involving their cars.
The contrast between the paunchy, balding Mr. Hicks and the rest of the complex’s residents was stark. Many were aspiring professionals and academics at a premier public university. Mr. Hicks was unemployed, taking night classes at a community college in hopes of becoming a paralegal. He spent long hours in his apartment with a collection of at least a dozen guns, including four pistols and a Bushmaster AR-15. Mrs. Hicks told her lawyer that Mr. Hicks would stare out the second-floor window, obsessing over neighbors’ parties, patterns and parking.
On Feb. 5, Mr. Hicks got more bad news: A judge had ordered a March 19 hearing over $14,189.54 in unpaid child support to his first wife, according to court records.

I always assume when crimes like this are committed in the U.S. that the perpetrator is a white, middle aged, Christian man with either no neck or several chins and a series of professional and personal failures in his past.  Hicks hits every stereotype except the Christian part.

I’ll be grateful when we reach a point in this country where white men no longer feel entitled to blame others for their personal failures.

The British military go and fight overseas against terrorists, and when they get home to Britain they have to be careful where they wear their uniform in public because our idiot government allows Muslims who hate our military to live here. What a ridiculous joke Britain has become. What’s the point of fighting terrorists over in the Middle East if you let them live in your country?

it’s important that we pay tribute to Leelah and Zander, but it’s also important that we pay tribute to the five trans women of color murdered in 2015 so far. I have seen next to nothing about these women. They are just as important as Leelah or Zander. They deserve the same recognition. They deserve the same respect. Remember their names.

The Alphabet Murders

In the 1970s a series of murderes took place in Rochester, NY and the killer was never caught. The victims were three girls who were raped and brutally murdered. The strange thing about the murders was the fact that each of the girls’ first and last names started with the same letter and that each body was found in a town that had a name starting with the same letter as each girl’s name.

  • Carmen Colon in Churchville (10)
  • Wanda Walkowicz in Webster (11)
  • Michelle Maenza in Macedon (11)

Though no one was convicted of the murders, the two “people of interest” commited suicide. DNA tests ruled both of them out as the potential killers. Fast forward to 2011 in California. A man named Joseph Naso is arressted for murdering four women who fit the same pattern as the murders in Rochester.

  • Roxene Roggasch
  • Pamela Parsons
  • Tracy Tofoya
  • Carmen Colon (same name as the victim in Rochester)

Naso was sentenced to death but never tied to the Rochester murders.
