Top 5 Police Blunders of the Week

 Darren Johnson and William Jennings — the Indiana cops recently suspended for tasering and slapping an unruly 10-year-old — would have made the Top 5 Police Blunders Of The Week had their stupidity not landed them their very own entry. Also, today we have bigger fish to fry, like Anthony Orban and Jeff Jelenek, two California cops recently arrested for kidnapping and rape…

5. Lashaud Welcome and Ruffus Stewart  In February 2009, Welcome and Stewart pulled over three men in front of a Detroit gas station. They found an ounce of weed on Sherrod Redd as well as a gun hiding under the hood of the car. Redd was cuffed, along with his two friends, but he was soon turned loose. Had the police ran a record check, they would have seen that Redd was wanted for violating his parole after he attacked a police officer. But they didn’t.  Instead, Welcome and Stewart pinned the marijuana and the gun on Redd’s nephew, Megale Redd, who had done little but earn a seat belt violation. While we’d like to accuse Welcome and Stewart of simple laziness, we can’t, seeing as busting Sherrod — the real criminal — would have been just as easy.  When Megale’s mother got wind of what the police officers did, she wasn’t pleased. Along with her son’s defense attorney, she obtained a copy of the gas station’s security video, which contradicted the report that the police filed against Megale.  After an internal investigation was conducted, both officers were suspended without pay and charged with official misconduct. Stewart has already pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing.  Last Tuesday, Welcome appeared before a Wayne County judge who could only say, “Why? I don’t know.”

4. Shane Sampson  may have only landed himself the number four spot on this week’s list, but, believe us when we say that, if there was a number one spot for biggest pussy cop, he’d most certainly be in the running.  Sampson happens to work for the Camden Police Department, a department so full of corrupt and inept cops that it has graced this list more than once. While Sampson hasn’t planted drugs on innocent suspects or sexually assaulted any women, he has still managed to prove himself a douche-bag of the highest order. Apparently, Sampson has been engaged in a protracted custody battle with his ex-wife. But rather than take this unfortunate situation like a man, Sampson had to get his buddies to do his dirty work for him — and waste valuable police resources in the process. In December, Sampson filed a custody complaint against his ex-wife, who had received permission from the court to take their toddler daughter to Florida for vacation until December 24. While she was there, Sampson’s wife hurt her arm and was ordered by a doctor not to travel home before December 28. But it was too late. Sampson had already thrown a hissy fit — one so big that state troopers were at the airport to greet his ex-wife, whom they then took into custody, detained her for four hours, and then handed her over to Camden cops, who then kept her for another four hours. Of course, the charges against her were ultimately dismissed. First off, she had committed no crime. Secondly, Camden police — Sampson’s buddies — had no jurisdiction over her or her case. Also, Sampson had hastily filed his complaint a day before she was even originally due home. Now, it’s Sampson who finds himself in trouble with the law. On Wednesday morning, he turned himself in and was charged with official misconduct and harassment, and has been ordered to stay away from his ex-wife.

​3. John Lewis The last time we caught up with John Lewis was in January, when he appeared on this here list at number 5. Unfortunately, while he’s moved up on Police Blunders, we can’t say the same for his standing in the real world. Lewis is no stranger to the law — not just because he is a 15-year veteran Schenectady cop, but also because he’s been arrested on a half-dozen domestic violence and drunk-driving charges. In December 2009, he added another 10 more charges to his name, thanks to stalking his wife and fighting with his ex-girlfriend. Then, in January, he was busted yet again for drunk driving. Finally, the judge set his bail at $25,000, hoping that keeping him in jail for a while just might do the trick.  But that wasn’t the case. This month, Lewis faces another slew of charges for breaking a window inside the Schenectady County Jail. He has been charged with reckless endangerment of property and has since been moved to the Schoharie County Jail. Oddly enough, Lewis has still not been officially fired by the Schenectady Police Department. He’s been on unpaid suspension since 2008.

2. Melissa and Darin Smith In the case of the 11-year-old son of Melissa and Darin Smith there is no good cop/bad cop sort of situation. The poor kid has simply been stuck with two really bad cops. Literally. Someone might want to inform the Smiths that disciplining their son is not supposed to be akin to arresting a violent suspect. Unfortunately, court affidavits are claiming that the couple — both officers with the Allen Police Department in Texas — did just that. In February, the boy’s mother hit him in the head with a spoon, slapped him across the face, and then beat him with a belt after the boy says he didn’t get out of bed fast enough. Her punishment left several deep bruises on the boy’s body, including a gash on his scalp. And that’s not all. The boy’s stepfather, Darin Smith, with the help of his mother, threw him to the ground, strangled him, cuffed him, and then threw him in the car, acting as though he had been arrested and was going to jail. The Smiths have not denied using unusual disciplinary methods. They just don’t consider them abuse. Darin says he was just trying to scare the kid, while Melissa claims that it would only be abuse if she “used a baseball bat” and “broke his bones.” Melissa has been charged with child abuse, while Darin has been charged with official oppression.

1. Anthony Orban and Jeff Jelenek This last item just completely blows our minds and has honestly left us in such shock, we alas have no witty quips or snide remarks — just utter disgust. On Saturday afternoon, in broad daylight, Anthony Orban, a 30-year-old officer with the Westminster Police Department, and Jeff Jelenek, a 30-year-old California corrections officer, where driving around Ontario, California when they spotted a 24-year-old waitress just getting off of work. As the woman walked to her car, Orban approached her with his gun and ordered her to start driving as Jelenek followed them to a nearby town where Orban told her to stop the car and then raped her while Jelenek stood watch. After Orban had his way with the victim, the two men sped off in Jelenek’s car before Orban realized he made a fatal error — he’d left his gun in the girl’s car. Orban quickly called his wife and told her his gun was missing and he thought it might be stolen. Meanwhile, the victim had made her way to a nearby business, where she called Fontina police and handed over Orban’s weapon. By late that evening, both men were arrested and taken in for questioning. Fortunately, their stories were as sloppy as their handling of evidence. Orban was booked on suspicion of rape, while Jelenek was held for being an accessory. Orban has also since been relieved of his duty while police continue to investigate. (TrueCrimeReport)


More Facebook Fails…

Everybody should know by now to be careful what you post on your Facebook page (or any of your social media profiles). And yet, it seems like a new story comes out every week about somebody getting fired, suspended or embarrassed because of what they’ve posted.

Lets be  a lil smarter and wiser than these folks.

Top 10 Most Evil Women

We all tend to focus on the evil men in the world and forget some of the truly evil women that have lived. I hope to correct that with this list. Here we have not just serial killers, but other utterly despicable women who have caused tragedy in many people’s lives. So, without further ado, here are the top 10 most evil women in history.

10. Queen Mary I Born: 1516; Died: 1558

Mary was the only child of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon to live past infancy. Crowned after the death of Edward VI and the removal of The Nine Days Queen-Lady Jane Grey, Mary is chiefly remembered for temporarily and violently returning England to Catholicism. Many prominent Protestants were executed for their beliefs leading to the moniker “Bloody Mary”. Fearing the gallows a further 800 Protestants left the country, unable to return until her death. It should be noted that Elizabeth I shares position 10 on this list for her equally bad behavior.

9. Myra Hindley Born: 1942; Died: 2002

Myra Hindley and Ian Brady were responsible for the “Moors murders” occurring in the Manchester area of Britain in the mid 1960’s. Together these two monsters were responsible for the kidnapping, sexual abuse, torture and murder of three children under the age of twelve and two teenagers, aged 16 and 17. A key found in Myra’s possession led to incriminating evidence stored at a left-luggage depot at Manchester Central Station. The evidence included a tape recording of one of the murder victims screaming as Hindley and Brady raped and tortured her. In the final days before incarceration, she developed a swagger and arrogant attitude that became her trademark. Police secretary Sandra Wilkinson has never forgotten seeing Hindley and her mother Nellie, leaning against the courthouse eating sweets. While the mother was obviously and understandably upset, Hindley seemed indifferent and uncaring of her situation.

8. Isabella of Castile Born: 1451; Died: 1504

Isabella I of Spain, well-known as the patron of Christopher Columbus, with her husband Ferdinand II of Aragon, are responsible for making possible the unification of Spain under their grandson Carlos I. As part of the drive for unification, Isabella appointed Tomás de Torquemada as the first Inquisitor General of the inquisition. March 31, 1492 marks the implementation of the Alhambra Decree; expulsion edicts forcing the removal or conversion of Jews and Muslims. Roughly 200,000 people left Spain; those remaining who chose conversion were subsequently persecuted by the inquisition investigating Judaizing conversos. In 1974, Pope Paul VI opened her cause for beatification. This places her on the path toward possible sainthood. In the Catholic Church, she is thus titled Servant of God.

7. Beverly Allitt Born: 1968

The “Angel of Death, Beverley Gail Allit, is one of Britain’s most well-known serial killers. Working as a pediatric nurse, she is responsible for the murder of 4 children and the serious injury of 5 others in her care. When available, insulin or potassium injections were used to precipitate cardiac arrest; smothering sufficed when they were not. Although convicted with death or injury in nine cases, Allit attacked thirteen children over a fifty-eight day period before being caught red-handed. Allit has never spoken of the motive for her crimes, but Munchausen’s Syndrome by Proxy explains her actions. This debatable personality disorder involves a pattern of abuse or harm to someone in your care in order to garner attention (Alitt was known as a child to wear bandages and casts over wounds, but would not allow them to be examined).

6. Belle Gunness Born: 1859; Died: 1931

Belle Gunness was one of America’s most degenerate and productive female serial killers. Standing 6 ft (1.83 m) tall and weighing in at over 200 lbs (91 kg), she was an imposing and powerful woman of Norwegian descent. It is likely that she killed both her husbands and all of her children at different times, but it is certain that she murdered most of her suitors, boyfriends, and her two daughters, Myrtle and Lucy. The motive was greed-pure and simple; life insurance policies and assets stolen or swindled from her suitors became her source of income. Most reports put her death toll at more than twenty victims over several decades, with some claiming in excess of one hundred. Inconsistencies during her post-mortem examination; the corpse was reported to be two inches shorter than Belle’s six feet, paved the way for Belle Gunnes to enter American criminal folklore, a female Bluebeard.

5. Mary Ann Cotton Born: 1832; Died: 1873

Englishwoman Mary Ann Cotton is another for-profit serial killer, predating Belle Gunnes by thirty years. Married at age twenty to William Mowbray, the newlyweds settled in Plymouth, Devon, to start their family. The couple had five children, four of whom died of ‘gastric fever and stomach pains’. Moving back to the north-east, tragedy seemed to follow them; three more children born, three more children died. William soon followed his offspring, dying of an ‘intestinal disorder’ in January 1865. British Prudential promptly paid a 35 pound dividend, and a pattern was established. Her second husband, George Ward, died of intestinal problems as well as one of her two remaining children. The power of the press, always a force to be reckoned with, caught up with Mary Ann. The local newspapers discovered that as Mary Ann moved around northern England, she lost three husbands, a lover, a friend, her mother and a dozen children, all dying of stomach fever. She was hanged at Durham County Gaol, March 24, 1873, for murder by arsenic poisoning. She died slowly, the hangman using too short a drop for a ‘clean’ execution.

4. Ilse Koch Born: 1906; Died: 1967

“Die Hexe von Buchenwald” the Witch of Buchenwald, or “Buchenwälder Schlampe” the Bitch of Buchenwald was the wife of Karl Koch, commandant of the concentration camps Buchenwald from 1937 to 1941, and Majdanek from 1941 to 1943. Drunk on the absolute power rendered by her husband, she reveled in torture and obscenity. Infamous for her souvenirs; tattoos taken from the murdered inmates, her reputation for debauchery was well earned. After building an indoor sports arena in 1940, with 250,000 marks stolen from inmates, Ilsa was promoted to Oberaufseherin or “chief overseer” of the few female guards at Buchenwald. She committed suicide by hanging herself at Aichach women’s prison on September 1, 1967.

3. Irma Grese Born: 1923; Died: 1945

Another product of the Nazi’s final solution, Irma Grese or the “Bitch of Belsen” was a guard at concentration camps Ravensbrück, Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. Transferred to Auschwitz in 1943, (she must have shown particular enthusiasm and dedication to the job), she was promoted to Senior Supervisor, the 2nd highest ranking female in camp, by the end of the year. In charge of over 30,000 Jewish female prisoners, she reveled in her work. Her work included; savaging of prisoners by her trained and half-starved dogs, sexual excesses, arbitrary shootings, sadistic beatings with a plaited whip, and selecting prisoners for the gas chamber. She enjoyed both physical and emotional torture and habitually wore heavy boots and carried a pistol to facilitate both.

2. Katherine Knight Born: 1956

The first Australian woman to be sentenced to a natural life term without parole, Katherine Knight had a history of violence in relationships. She mashed the dentures of one of her ex-husbands and slashed the throat of another husband’s eight-week-old puppy before his eyes. A heated relationship with John Charles Thomas Price became public knowledge with an Apprehended Violence Order that Price had filed against Knight and ended with Knight stabbing Price to death with a butcher’s knife. He had been stabbed at least 37 times, both front and back, with many of the wounds penetrating vital organs. She then skinned him and hung his “suit” from the door frame in the living room, cut off his head and put it in the soup pot, baked his buttocks, and prepared gravy and vegetables to accompany the ‘roast’. The meal and a vindictive note were set out for the children, luckily discovered by police before they arrived home.

1. Elizabeth Bathory Born: 1560; Died: 1614

Countess Elizabeth Bathory is considered the most infamous serial killer in Hungarian/Slovak history. Rumors had circulated for years about missing peasant girls; offered well paid work at the castle, they were never seen again. One of these rumors reached the ears of King Mathias II, who sent a party of men to the massive Castle Csejthe. The men found one girl dead and one dying. Another was found wounded and others locked up. Described atrocities, collected from testimony of witnesses, include; severe beatings over extended periods of time, the use of needles, burning or mutilation of hands, sometimes also of faces and genitalia, biting the flesh off the faces, arms and other bodily parts, and the starving of victims. The victim total is thought to number in the hundreds occurring over a twenty-five year period. Due to her social status she was never brought to trial but remained under house arrest in a single room until her death. The idea that the Countess bathed in the blood of her victims is folklore, and one of the few things she did not do. (Source)

Note: In order to clear one point up, Lizzie Borden is not on this list because she was found innocent of the murder of her parents.

5 Strange Ways Wives have Killed Their Husbands

Getting out of a marriage can be as simple as filing for divorce or it can be as creative as those who didn’t only want to stand by their man, but they also didn’t want to leave their man standing.

1. Agrippina’s Story

Claudius the fourth Roman Emperor also known as Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus was in the midst of big marriage problems with wife number five Agrippina. He was heard publicly to complain about his bad luck in marrying so many disagreeable women. This might have spurred Agrippina into action not so much out of a need for vengeance as a fear from losing out on the position. She saw herself and her son trying to occupy when Claudius was out of the picture. He was also making statements regarding reconciliation with son Britannicus which would have knocked Agrippina’s son Nero out of the running for ruler of Rome. She needed her husband out-of-the-way, but it couldn’t have been just logic that drove her since the poison, that was administered to him, was slow and painful. When it seemed the old man wouldn’t die quickly enough Agrippina sent in a slave with a feather to induce vomiting, claiming it would cure him. Of course, vomiting might in fact have helped Claudius if the feather hadn’t been dipped in yet more poison.

2. Ruth Snyder

In 1925 Ruth Snyder a housewife from Queens New York decided to have her husband killed by his would-be replacement, her boyfriend, Henry Judd Gray, a corset salesman. Together the pair planned her husband’s, Albert’s death, but not before Ruth talked her husband into signing a life insurance policy that would pay off extra if he were attacked and died by an act of violence. Ruth and Henry, neither of whom were exactly well read, tried various methods of disposing of poor Albert, but finally gave up when he began to become difficult to handle. The couple garroted Albert and when they failed to kill him quickly enough they stuffed rags soaked in chloroform up his nose. After Albert died in agonizing death, the couple tried to make the place seem as if it had been broken into, but the cops didn’t buy it. Cornered, the pair told on one another and both received the death penalty. Ruth Snyder was among few women to have ever been put on the death by electrocution, a far more merciful death than Albert Snyder experienced.

3. Pamela Smart

Like Ruth the pretty 23 year-old Pamela Smart tried to use her boyfriend to kill her husband. Her boyfriend and lover was only 15 at the time, but he, along with an accomplice, managed to surprise and shoot Gregory Smart as he entered his own home. Police might not have pieced together the entire murder plot if Pamela hadn’t made the mistake of forgetting that teens are notoriously bad at keeping secrets. She’s currently serving time for taking part in the murder scheme.

4. Larissa Schuster

Larissa Schuster had a boyfriend too, but being a biochemist she also had her own chemical lab. This was a bad combination for her husband Timothy, who was fighting her tooth and nail in their divorce. In 2003 the 47-year-old Larissa had enough so she rented a storage unit. She and her boyfriend then kidnapped the luckless Timothy using a stun gun and chloroform to subdue him. While barely conscious, he was still very much alive but incapacitated so they stuffed his body into a barrel. Then Larissa began pouring the hydrochloric acid into the container. When the police found Timothy Schuster, all that was left of him was the lower part of his body from the belt buckle down. Larissa got sentenced to a life in prison for her heinous crime.

5. Clara Harris

 Clara Harris didn’t have a boyfriend, but she was sure her husband had a girlfriend. She hired a private detective and not only did he confirm her worst fear,  he invited her down to a hotel her husband, David Harris, was using for the affair. This turned into a fatal confrontation and when David headed toward his girlfriend’s car Clara snapped. She got behind the wheel of her Mercedes and ran over her husband. Then she followed the curve of the drive and hit him again as he lay on the ground. She tried to tell police that her foot had slipped and she’d lost control of the car, but the couple’s daughter who’d also been in the vehicle with her mother testified against her. Clara is serving life in prison for running over her man.(WORM)

16 Horrifying Female Bodybuilders

Female bodybuilders truly are an amazing species. They’re kinda like futuristic cyborg soldiers sent to Earth for one simple purpose… to scare the complete sh*t out of grown men, children and small animals. Nothing can stop them because everyone is far too frightened to stand anywhere near them and they’re probably the one thing capable of fixing our economy. I’m telling you, if we sent an army of fully trained female bodybuilders to Washington D.C., we could take over congress in a week.

Fella’s be careful what you wish for… I’m sure there was a man somewhere pressuring these woman to get into the gym, and pump weight with them… now look, they have created monsters. (Source)

Awful People Who Got What Was Coming to Them

1. Carl ‘Alfalfa’ Switzer

Yes, that would be Alfalfa from the Little Rascals. Turns out, off-key singing and bad hair were not his only crimes against humanity.

As a kid, he was little bastard, pulling pranks on other little rascals cast members; He once put fishing hooks in Spanky’s pants, resulting in cuts so bad that poor Spanky needed stitches. He convinced Darla to put her hand in his pocket, telling her he had a ring in it for her. Take a guess as to what it was. Did you think “his penis”? I did too. Nope, Alfalfa wasn’t a pervert, he was a sick asshole. It was switch blade, and Darla nearly lost a finger because of it. When The Little Rascals series was sold to MGM, he got even worse. During a filming break, he pissed on the set’s lights. When they turned them back on, the smell made by super heated urine was so intense they had to stop filming for the day.

He didn’t die with his childhood, though. He got married, but that only lasted 4 months. He got shot while getting into his car once; they don’t know why, and while getting shot isn’t in and of itself a s***y thing, his track record suggests he didn’t buy the guy flowers and the dud just f****g snapped…

He also cut down 15 trees in Sequoia National Park. About national parks, they say “Take only pictures and leave only footprints.” Alfalfa said “F**k you, I’m taking 15 trees”.

In 1959, Alfalfa got drunk and decided that a guy he knew named Bud Stiltz owed him 50 bucks. Apparently, Alfalfa borrowed a dog from the guy, then lost it. He paid the Bud $35 and bought him $15 worth of drinks at a bar, to make up for it, but guess what? They found the dog. So he decided Bud owed him the 50 he had paid him. Never mind the whole ordeal was his fault, and it’s a pretty bulls**t move to buy someone drinks, THEN tell them they owe you for it. A scuffle ensued, wherein Alfalfa and his friend beat up Bud, who took a glass dome clock to the head, leading him to get his gun. Alfalfa grabbed the gun, which he almost got away from the guy (which is a bad-ass check in Alfalfa’s book) , and forced Bud back into a closet (check number 2), but when he pulled a switch blade (we don’t know if this is the same one he used to carve off Darla’s finger) and told Bud he was going to kill him, Bud apparently had enough and shot him. In the groin.

No doubt, Spanky got some cosmic joy out of the whole thing, because Alfalfa died of internal bleeding from a nut-shot on the way to the hospital.



2. Jeffery Dahmer

This one is pretty well-known, but for the three of you that don’t know who he is:

Jeffery Dahmer is most famous for being the guy who killed and ate 17 people in the early 90s. He trolled bars, looking to pick up guys and take them home, where he would drug them, screw them, kill them, screw them some more, then eat them. One can assume that with that track record, he probably then screwed them some more.

But he didn’t just grow up to be an asshole; like Alfalfa, he was a di*k early on, too. As a kid he would kill and dissect animals. He stuck a dog head on a stick out in the woods in a very Lord of the Flies fashion for anyone who happened by.

He was a chronic alcoholic by the time he was a teenager, tough that isn’t in and of itself an asshole move, but it’s a pretty good indicator. He was forced to enlist in the army by his dad, but they didn’t want him because he drank too much so he was kicked out after 2 years.

Then for a while he busied himself with showing his junk to kids and trying to fondle them, which resulted in some jail time. When that wasn’t enough, he began killing and eating people.

In some cases, he tried drilling holes in their heads while they were still alive and poured acid in the holes to try to make them zombie love slaves. But damn it all if they didn’t just keep dying. So he ate them. Apparently, he was lonely. That was the root of it all; he couldn’t relate to people, and kids wouldn’t let him feel them up, so he decided the best way to maintain a relationship would be to lobotomize people so they would presumably have a hard time finding the door.

Since being a “Drunk ex-army guy” didn’t qualify him to perform medical procedures on people, and he wound up killing all of them, he just decided to eat them so they would always be a part of him. Imagine the heartbreak every time he took a dump.

Most of his victims were grown men that should have taken one look at his mustache and told him to f**k off, but in one case he killed a 14-year-old kid, who happened to be the younger brother of one of the kids he’d felt up. All told, he’d killed 17 people, and the cops found partial bodies, heads, and skulls in the closet, as well as 3 penises in the fridge. He was eventually caught, and imprisoned, where there were some attempts made to kill him.

A guy named Jesse Anderson apparently decided that attempting to kill Jeff wasn’t good enough. Showing the kind of gusto that makes people say “If you want something done well, do it yourself”, he took the bar from a weight machine and proceeded to show Jeffery Dahmer that if he swung hard enough, he could hit the floor with it, despite Jeff’s head being in the way. We don’t know if they actually discussed this point, but he proved it anyway. Jeff died on the way to the hospital.

3. Elizabeth Bathory

Men aren’t the only people in the world sick enough to actually deserve an awful end. Anyone who has ever played Vampire: The Masquerade or has googled “female serial killer” has probably heard of Countess Bathory. She was a noble in Eastern Europe in the 16th century. She actually started off pretty normal for a noble of the time. She was well-educated, was married to a powerful man, and had several kids.

She helped several women during the wars being fought with the Ottoman empire, even helping out a peasant woman and her daughter who had been raped and impregnated.

After her husband died in 1604 (they had been married for 29 years), rumors started to fly about some shady goings-on at Bathory’s place; namely that she hired peasant girls to work for kick-ass rates and then murdered them, bled them, and bathed in their blood. Apparently simply killing and draining them was not enough; they had to be tortured and starved first. Since there are no legends that torture blood is more effective at keeping you young than just any old blood, I can only assume that in addition to being evil, Bathory was just a bit*h.

In all she was rumored to have killed over 600 girls from the 17 surrounding villages. The general lack of milk cartons at the time probably made it easy for Bathory, since it was unlikely that all of the villages were going to get together one day and in conversation say “Wait, all of your daughters are disappearing, too?”

6 years later, she was officially arrested along with 4 servants who had helped her. Supposedly, all the bleeding and bathing was done in an attempt to remain youthful forever, and possibly to see if Bath and Body Works products could cover the scent of death. (They couldn’t)

The 4 servants were immediately put to death (they were all found guilty, though, so don’t feel bad), and the countess herself was walled up in her basement as her punishment. She lasted 4 years, presumably bathing in her own waste by then. (Source)

Best Signs Ever Made by the Homeless

I know we have all seen the creative signs made by homeless people. Here is a collection of some pretty good ones…
