EFFORTPOST Full(?) Split Face Diving Accident Video (Gore Classic)

Background info:

I know another person has already posted this, but I discovered a longer version (supposedly the one making its rounds on the Internet) on this blog from 2009 which I didn't manage to post in time. Then just recently, I found an even longer version posted 1 month ago on bestgore. So here are both videos. The first one is the longest version (abt 3 minutes long). The second one is the one supposedly making its rounds in 2009.

The mentioned blog:

http://robert-lindsay.blogspot.com/2009/10/face-split-diving-accident-video.html?m=1

Extract from blog:

It's referred to by some description of the event like Horrible Diving Accident, Bridge Fail, Worst Diving Accident, Horrific Diving Accident, Awesome Diving Accident, Disgusting Diving Accident, Jump Accident, Cellphone Horrific Diving Accident and Diving Accident

A teenager, a 16 year old boy, dives off the seaside promenade in Beirut, Lebanon and slips before the dive. The slip causes him to miss the ocean and instead hit the concrete slab below where fishermen fish. He hits the concrete face first, then goes into the ocean. In a short while, the ocean for yards around has turned red with blood. There are people and boats in the water trying to help the guy, and girls are screaming all over the place.

The scene then shifts to a hospital where the poor guy is being overseen by a team of doctors and nurses. His face has been split clear in two down the middle vertically!

He is still alive, conscious and breathing, and his tongue is moving around. He appears terrified. The doctor takes the sides of his face and pushes them together a couple of times to make a whole face again. The doctor says, "Where do I begin?" a few times in Arabic.

The water has gone completely red in the video. The rescue team with a boat can also be seen. People who think the video is fake say that the water is too red, and the blood he lost could not possibly have turned the water so red. When blood loss occurs in water, the water is almost like a medium for the blood and allows it to spread a lot as it mixes. This can cause a little bit of blood to look like a lot of blood. This is not to say the victim didn't lose a lot of blood, but the color of the water makes it appear as if he lost more than he did.

People are wondering how he could survive such an injury, and the front part of his brain may indeed have been injured, but others are saying that it appears to be intact. At any rate, basic things like breathing are done by the brain stem. The brain stem does not appear to be injured.

People are also wondering about pain. The brain has no pain receptors. On the other hand, the damage to his face must be very painful.

It's a long way off the Manara Promenade to the ocean, over 40 feet. The first part of the video shows his brother making a successful dive. The victim and his brother had made several jumps before, and everything had gone fine, but this time the victim slips and disaster unfolds.

This part was shot with a Nokia cellphone that shoots dark in the afternoon. The segment was shot by a girl at the scene who can be heard screaming, "Oh my God! Oh my God! Someone call the Civil Defense!" in Arabic. Some say his friends would not shoot movies of him diving, but the girl filming is just some girl who was there filming the divers. Lots of people use their cellphones to film the divers.

This actually is not the original video from Lebanon.

In Lebanon, there were two videos, the first one of the diving accident. This one started going around Lebanon later in the day after the accident. In the original Lebanese video, there is no fade out after he hits, for one thing. The original video from Lebanon is not currently available.

The second video was shot in the hospital and started going around later.

The video on my site is the two different videos spliced together.

The second part of the clip is the same kid in the hospital, but was shot with a different cellphone so it looks different. The hospital staff is definitely speaking Lebanese Arabic. This part of the clip was shot in the brightly lit ER of the American University Hospital, which is only ¼ mile away from where the accident took place. That's why things are so much brighter in this part of the clip.

People say there is no way a cellphone would have been allowed in an ER, however, in the Developing World, it is quite common for family, friends, etc. to be present in the ER right next to the patient's bed as the staff hovers around them.

It's also not uncommon that they have a cellphone on them and record the goings-on. That would be unheard of in the US, but in the Arab World, no one thinks anything of it.

As you can see in the hospital footage, they have the boy intubated, which is an excellent idea. However, he is not on a ventilator, nor are there any signs of monitoring equipment such a pulse oximeter. Also they did not put him in C-Spine precautions (C-collar, backboard, strapped down).

The physician is focusing on holding his face together, possibly in order to protect the airway. Critics say the doctor is "playing" with the face, and no doctor would do that, but I don't think he is playing with it. I think he's trying to fix it.

Some US Medical personnel say the video is fake because he is not receiving proper medical care. Keep in mind that this is Lebanon. He is getting reasonable medical care, but he is not receiving the best of medical care.

In this case, the best care would be the following: Put the victim in a drug induced coma for most of the time. Start with the major things like checking the frontal bone (forehead) to ensure the brain is safe, maintain vascular supply to tissues, deal with the airway (victim would need a tracheotomy), try to save his vision and go from there. After that, try bone fusions/pinnings to repair bones and muscle re-attachments to repair muscles. Skin and soft tissues would be dealt with last. There would surely be a hell of a scar afterward.

In this case, all the surgeons could do was to stitch up the deep and severe wounds in his face. Although some clinicians on the Net say that a good ENT could patch this kid up, this poor guy could not be saved. All the surgeons were able to do was keep him alive in the ICU for two days before he died. The death was due to spinal fracture and in particular severe internal bleeding in the brain.

Death was due to internal bleeding. A lot of people in Beirut gave money to his family after he died.

EFFORTPOST Livestreamed Mass Attacks

Hello there! I decided to put together all info I could find on particular livestreamed mass attacks and livestreamed crime in general, with added information on the cases. I hope you'll enjoy it, it took me a lot! but anyways, let's start:


Christchurch mosque shootings

Everybody here probably already knows about these shootings but to sum it up: On the 15th March 2019, a 28 year old, nazi, chud retard called Brenton Tarrant committed two consecutive shootings in two mosques, Masjid-Al-Noor and the Linswood Islamic Center of Christchurch, New Zealand. The gunman killed 51 people and injured another 49, all of which were muslims. The attacks were livestreamed on Facebook, along a manifesto written by Tarrant named The Great Replacement, to inspire other far-right extremists to carry out shootings in a similair vein to the Christchurch ones. The livestream isn't the full terrorist attack, as it was taken down before he could reach the 2nd mosque, but it still contains the entire first attack and his escape. Tarrant was then arrested and is currently sentencing a life sentence with no possibility of parole.


Halle synagogue shooting

Christchurch inspired many other shooters, as it intended, and fortunately many of them failed, such as Gemany's biggest cuck: Stephen Balliet. On the 9th October 2019, this dumbass tried to use homemade guns with some 3D printed parts to commit a shooting in the synagogue of Halle, Saxony-Anhalt in Germany. As you may expect, it went horribly, as he wasn't able to enter the synagogue and instead he killed a random old lady on the street and a dude in a kebab store. Stephen was livestreaming on Twitch and also released a shitty manifesto which is the type of manifesto an edgy 14 year old would make. Balliet was arrested and is currently serving a life sentence in a maximum security prison.


2022 Buffalo shooting

Yet another shooting livestream inspired by Christchurch, this time by a furstrag neo-nazi who shot up a Top's Friendly Market in Buffalo, New York, which is a primarily black neighborhood; The retard once again released a manifesto called The Way Forward, which is literally a copy and paste of Brenton Tarrant's manifesto. He was able to kill 10 people and injure another 3, while sparing everybody in the store who was white. the event was livestreamed on Twitch, just like Balliet, but the livestream cuts out while he's in the supermarket and unfortunately for us gore fans there is no full version of the attack. (there's also a longer version which just includes him driving for a bit longer, check out this post to watch it https://watchpeopledie.tv/h/shooting/post/22653/buffalo-mass-shooting-full-livestream-video)


Jacksonville Landing shooting

This shooting occured on the 26th August 2018, when David Katz lost at tournament for the title of Madden 7 champion of 2018; Since he won the former championship, he raged from being beaten and pulled out a FUCKING GUN, shooting and killing the player who beat him and another player, all the while injuring 10 other people before committing suicide. The event was livestreamed on Twitch, as that's where the tournament was digitally taking place, but the camera cut out as soon as Katz started shooting, so, you can only hear the audio.


Nakhon Ratchasima shootings

A mass shooting that occured in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, when an ex-soldier called Jakrapanth Thomma went schizo mode and decided to steal a few machine guns from a military camp after killing his own commander, and then continuing the rampage by shooting people on the road and setting fire to mall. While all of this occured, he decided it would be a good idea to post updates on his Facebook account and to also livestream the event: unfortunately the full livestream has been lost but I was able to find a few screenshots from it and also his Facebook update posts. Thomma was shot and killed by the police a few hours later.

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/16947046588094432.webp


2022 Memphis shootings

On the 7th September 2022, a dumb Memphis BIPOC called Ezekiel Kelly went outside of his house and starting a shooting spree in which he killed three people and injured another three, while livestreaming on Facebook. You can't really see shit on the video because the dumbass just livestreamed his face while rambling incomprehensible nonsense. Kelly has been arrested by the police and he is currently being convicted.


Eslöv school attack

Another failed Brenton Tarrant copycat, but this time by an edgy 15 year old Swedish nazi named Hugo Jackson. Being a minor he didn't have access to any firearms, so, instead he used a knife to go in his school in Eslöv, Sweden, and stab a random teacher. He wasn't able to unjure anybody else other than that teacher who survived, and the police was called on him... which he tried to threaten with an airsoft pistol. He was arrested and is facing charges for attempted murder in a juvenile correction camp for 2.5 years. One of my friends has actually had the pleasure displeasure of talking with Hugo, and he has confirmed that he is a huge strag who types like a 2000s scenecore kid and uses ":3" when talking to people; To my knowleadge he also constantly gets bullied in the correction center for being a pussy. Unfortunately for us, the police owns the livestream and hasn't released it completely, but I was able to find a few still frames from the livestream.

edit: Hello! I wanted to add another livestreamed shooting that I missed before, I find this one to be a really good case since it ended pretty quickly.

West Freeway Church of Christ shooting

On the 29th December 2019, a schizoid called Keith Kinnunen entered the West Freeway Church of Christ dressed up as Not Important after playing a bit too much Hatred. He pulled out a shotgun after the ceremony and shot dead 2 people in the church, before being quickly dispatched by 71 year old Jack Wilson, who was volunteering as a security guard. the event was livestreamed on YouTube, since the church regularly livestreamed their ceremonies on their channel. I really just wanted to add this shooting in to praise the defender WIlson for his swift action and good aim under all that pressure. Remember: the only person who can stop a bad guy with a gun... is a good guy with a gun!

Hope you enjoyed all of the info I was able to gather and put together! I would've also added the Louisville bank shooting but there's literally no footage known of that shooting other than the CCTV footage and police bodycam, not even screencaps, sorry! Anyways, that's all for today, see ya!

Short, but necessary note first ;] This post isn't meant to be 'complete' in any way. It's intended to be 'just enough, but more than gore websites usually have'. TL;DR: SKIP TO 1ST SECTION FOR VIDS AND 2ND TO PHOTOS. I only used publicly accessible sources. May sound obvious and maybe some already saw it all. But it's not obvious for some, especially young generation of gore enjoyers - they can't remember period when online media didn't try to protect people form themselves and gore websites weren't taken down so often.

THERE ARE MANY MORE PICS, BUT I ONLY ONE TO POST THIS WHICH I CONFIRM FIRST. At least try to... Some are unrelated suicide jumpers. Some are accident victims from completely different parts of the world. Even websites like Documenting Reality - there's really nice collection of WTC photos - post few unrelated pictures.

(last edit from 4rd of January, 2023 - I added only more photos, also corrected some of my initial assumptions)

There's a map of body parts, nearly 22,000 were recovered. Originally posted by New York Post, here's impoved and simplified version:

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/1684139015715117.webp

And very basic map of the area, just to know 'what's where':

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/16841390163244343.webp

  • VIDEOS

⠀⠀⠀1 TO 2 - MILLENIUM HOTEL GUEST RECORDING

Guy Rosbrook's footage. Originally around 20 minutes long. Segments were used in Zacarias Moussaoui trial exhibits, from which I cut out the most 'gory' scenes. They were muted - so I REALLY recommend you checking original video! E.g. to hear people splashing on the ground, which for me sound like a distant and muffled sound of fireworks. Around 7;15 of the original vid, this jumpers' part ended slightly after you could hear jet sound.

1st. It shows people falling on Plaza (last part of Clip 1 from same trial video). Around 6;52-7;15 of original video, just before this segment you could hear cameraman noticing and shocked over there's a person falling to death, then his partner reacting.

After this scene plane hit.

2nd. Whole guest video, which is available on YT ('Raw 911 Video Hotel Room View of WTC). For these interested, I'd recommend watching and listening to some of cameraman's and his partner's comments. From the conversation in whole video, it seems at first they didn't notice bodies falling. Video have some breaks. Guy made very accurate assumption about it being terrorist attack, remembering the 90's one.

As age restricted video require login on YT, here's version from one of front-ends:

https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=MpUx8N0zLNg

⠀⠀⠀3 - FALLING ON STAGE ROOF

Also from Zacarias Moussaoui trial exhibits (Clip 2). It shows person falling at stage roof, notice the head rolling.

⠀⠀⠀4 - FALLING AND HITTING LAMP

Red mist is often mentioned as distinguishing scene here. Sometimes 'hitting the railing' is mentioned. Background building is WTC 3 (Marriott World Trade Center).

In below video, one person can be seen falling (only), and second both seen and heard. (edited) It could be the same person, but even if not, you can hear splashy and metallic sound around 0;51:

⠀⠀⠀5 - HITTING LAMP FRAGMENT (BLOOD SEEN, LANDING MOMENT NOT)

Short one, but I didn't see it anywhere else. EDIT: possibly it's the 2nd person, or at least same exact point, as in previous lamp video.

Same place for both, and that Fireline 8 video:

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/16841390173573015.webp

⠀⠀⠀6 - FIREFIGHTERS REACTION TO FALLING PERSON (ONLY HEARABLE)

⠀⠀⠀7 - PERSON FALLS ON PARKING (HEARABLE, LANDING SPOT COVERED BY CAR) - EDIT: probably not a person

Whole footage is also on YT, '9/11 Jack Taliercio World Trade Center Plaza Footage Released in 2010'.

⠀⠀⠀8 - PLAZA AND MANY SPLASHES HEARABLE, GOOD LIKE NOWHERE BEFORE

Same cameraman - Jack Taliercio - and his friend. Their conversations are amazing, I'd be dissapointed if they didn't become gore websites users. Cheering for jumpers to jump, talking about people blowing apart, our men :)

  • PHOTOS (SOMETIMES WITH CROPS)
	

At first, 4 photos from Pentagon, where 184 people died. Also exhibits from mentioned trial. I couldn't find any pictures depicting WTC victims like that.

⠀⠀⠀REST OF WTC REMAINS PHOTOS (NOT TRIAL EXHIBITS)

From 2753 victims (nearly 85% - civilians), to September 2021 nearly 60% got identified. Excluding all non-civilians from identified and overall numbers, it drops to ~53%.

a) Multiple victims bodies seen. VIP Car Port, North Tower. Check comments for version with marked body locations.

It was already posted by @Jaish around 3 weeks ago, but I added a whole backstory. This is a rare case when video is recorded as it should be, and perpetrators clearly enjoy their job. Cameraman does, too. tl;dr: in the beginning of October 2001, three people were kidnapped by five Chechen militants from their home in the outskirts of Grozny. All but the cameraman were really young, the only convicted for now being 18 yo back then. One another may be still alive, the rest were killed by the Russian special forces. Tatiana Usmanova, 39 yo, was interrogated - or rather tortured, like them all - in front of her friend (she was later shot) and husband, the only surviving witness. The victims were accused of cooperating with local police and feds. Tape with the footage surfaced in the middle of 2004, when one guy was already in prison, and nearly all of his accomplices - dead. The first one was convicted in 2007, for now - he's still serving his time in penal colony. Rest of info under the video. I put timestamps below if you'd like to skip certain moments or watch them specifically. [EDITS will come later]


⠀⠀TIMESTAMPS :marseywait:

0:00 to 2:18 - interrogating Tatiana, she gets hit few times.

2:18 to 3:50 - one of the militants is making a shallow scrape (for the blood to flow there); broader view of the scene, interchangeably with zooming on Tatiana's face.

Around 4:58, she starts pleading while being asked to show hands, got them taped around. Her husband gets mouth taped.

Then she's brought down, dude tries the knife against her throat (seems to figure out how to cut it later). Around 6:30 tape on her mouth is cut off, another talking scene.

8:30 to 9:20 - taping her mouth around again, preparations for the beheading.

9:20 - beheading starts; two guys take turns on cutting and holding her down. 9:50 to 11:00 is black screen (covered camera only), then it's just aftermath visible and boasting with her cut off head until 12:50.

12:50 onwards: just talking, few beheading aftermath scenes in-between.


⠀⠀THE KIDNAPPING, THE MURDERS AND THE PEOPLE BEHIND IT :marseysmug2:

Map with important spots relating to the story. Gekhi, around 12 km from the village of Alkhan-Kala, both close to Grozny. Orange square marks the village that the couple was living in (formally a part of Grozny). Small river flowing through Alkhan-Kala is Sunji.

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/168413986848141.webp

Three victims of the kidnapping and torture were:

  1. Tatiana Usmanova (born 1962), Russian by identity (Chechen father, Russian mother) - beheaded

  2. Hassan Edilgireev, her husband, Chechen - let free

  3. Elena Petrovna Gaevskaya, friend or neighbour of Tatiana, Russian - shot

Tatiana and Hassan were living in the Andreevskaya Dolina village, in Zavodsky district of Grozny. Sources either claim that Tatiana had 4 children or 5 children, some don't mention them at all. In the evening of 1st of October 2001, Elena - a friend of Tatiana - paid the visit to the couple. According to Hassan, five armed bandits broke into their home. They were part of the group led by Islam Chalayev (more on him in the next section). All three victims were threatened with reprisal (in what way - not specified), then taken to UAZ and driven away to Alkhan-Kala, to Chalayev's house.

http://WarChechnya.ru precises the most about the events shown. Khamzat Tazabaev nicknamed 'Tazik', born in 1974, was the cameraman. The first man doing a few cuts on Tatiana's neck is Arbi Khaskhanov, nicknamed 'Little Arbi' (possibly born in 1983). Next one, cutting the throat, is Adlan Barayev (I couldn't find his exact age). Head was finally cut off by Ilyas Dashaev (born 1982, living in Gekhi). He was the only one sentenced (in 2007), his accomplices were nearly all dead by the time. According to his court testimony, they got informed about all three victims allegedly collaborating with local police and FSB. Admitting to helping the local authorities and feds was obtained by force, though. Arbi Khaskhanov claimed (in 2003) that afterward both corpses were thrown into the Sunji river.

There is also 'someone said something' type of scenario, which I couldn't verify. Apart from alleged collaboration with cops and feds, other motives include crime based on ethnicity and more complicated issues between former friends or acquitainces. Reportedly, Tatiana may have known the killers, who were once friends with her son Alexander. Arbi Khaskhanov had an older brother, Apti. He claimed that both women sold Apti out to feds, and the man had later died in detention. His personal motivation was avenging Apti.


⠀⠀PERPETRATORS' BACKGROUND, AFTERMATH AND THE TRIAL :marseyrussiaglow:

  1. Islam Chalayev: eliminated during the FSB operation in April 2002;

  2. Khamzat Tazabaev: eliminated during the FSB operation in February 2004;

  3. Adlan Barayev: also killed during a special operation, in December 2004. His brother Movsar Barayev (and newphew of Arbi Barayev) led the hostage-taking during the Dubrovka theater hostage crisis, more known as Nord-Ost siege (I wrote a longer post on it: https://watchpeopledie.tv/h/combat/post/28466/nordost-siege-or-moscow-theater-hostage ), and was dead since the October 2002;

  4. Arbi Khaskhanov: I couldn't find info on this one; news about guy with same name and surname eliminated by feds comes from a month before. I don't know how the legal aspects look like for releasing info about not yet adult criminals (it's possible that 'Little Arbi' was 17 yo back in the October 2001). As in 2007 'nearly all' of the accomplices were eliminated, this one may be the exception and still alive;

  5. Ilyas Dashaev: discussed below. His full name is Ilyas Isaevich Dashaev, born on 5th of September 1982.

At the beginning of his criminal 'career', Dashaev was involved in the group led by Arbi Barayev (born 1973). He'd been specifically choosing young and cruel men to his ranks; actually would deserve a separate post. In the beginning of 2001, Dashaev moved to the 'Jamaat' led by Chalayev. Then (if I understood sources correctly) in the summer of 2001 he either moved to 'Bagram' group or the previous one was reformed into 'Bagram'. No matter the scenario, this group was destroyed in April 2002.

In the middle of 2004, feds in Grozny obtained a tape with the torture and beheading footage. That started a separate investigation. All men participating in torture and killings were identified, and one witness found - Hassan. Most of the militants had already died, and Dashaev was serving time in prison for the other crimes. In January 2002, federal troops managed to conduct a special operation against Dashaev and detain him. In December, the Stavropol Regional Court found him guilty of the murders of the heads of administrations of several Chechen villages, two employees of the Urus-Martanovsky District Department of Internal Affairs who were on a study leave in Grozny, as well as e.g. banditry and robbery, and sentenced to 20 years in prison in a maximum security colony.

For the 2001 murders, Ilyas Dashaev was convicted in 2007 by the Supreme Court of the Chechen Republic and sentenced to 22 years in prison, with serving a sentence in a maximum security penal colony. He was serving time in an IR-1 colony in the Chelyabinsk region. Exact accusations were: kidnapping committed by an organized group, murder in relation to its activity (I may have messed up the translation), committed with an exceptional cruelty and out of selfish motives.

Controversy sparked in 2018 after another prisoner of IR-1 colony, Yevgeny Kidinov, was beaten to death on 11th of November. One of the accused was Ilyas Dashaev. His wife Ramisa spoke in his defence; there are both articles and a video. Reportedly, CCTV recordings show Kidinov going out of the room where Dashaev was on his feet, with a cheerful gait. He died 4 hours later. According to Ramisa, the charge is based on the testimony of two witnesses. Both guys were involved in drug trafficking in IR-1 colony, and they got into a conflict with Dashaev, who was openly against the drug use among the prisoners.

EFFORTPOST 3 dead after Jeffery Spaide kills his 2 neighbors over snow argument then kills himself (LOTS of extra info, effort post)

LasreposcoulfinwajusovemonthagpluthihaextrinfoHopyoenjoy!

This is definitely my best post yet


EditHolshithibleupthanyoalsmuchI'glatseyoenjomstyloposts!


Shooter's Backstory:

Jeffery Spaide was born on June 16, 1973 and served in the U.S Navy during the 1990s, and was also in the U.S Navy reserve and U.S Army Nation Gaurd for periods of time. He also worked over 20 years as an engineer. His life was pretty normal until his fateful encounter with the goys. He got into an argument with them as a result of them all throwing snow onto each other's properties to dispose of it, and it resulted in Jeffery killing his 2 neighbors, then going into his own home and killing himself. (not shown in video)

What Happened:

As quoted from "Source 1": (see below) "On the morning of February 1, 2021, Jeffrey Spaide began arguing with James and Lisa Goy outside of their home in Plains Township, Pennsylvania. Like many of their earlier fights, this one centered on snow shoveling. The Goys shoveled snow from their parking spots and then moved it across the street before dumping it on Spaide's property. Soon afterward, Spaide emerged from his home and asked the couple to stop. They didn't. Instead, the conversation devolved into a heated altercation that involved Spaide and the Goys verbally threatening each other, hurling multiple obscenities, and calling each other names. “I'll make your life a living hell living here, dickhead,” James Goy angrily shouted at Jeffrey Spaide. Spaide replied, “What?… Fuck you, you fucking scum.” Then, James' wife Lisa yelled, “You're the fucking scumbag. You don't know how to talk to somebody.” James continued, “That's right… You're a pussy, pussy, pussy.” All of this was captured on surveillance footage, along with the violent escalation of the argument. In the video, Spaide is eventually seen walking down his driveway toward his neighbors, revealing a gun in his hand. James warned Spaide to “put the gun down,” but Spaide refused to listen. Instead, he began firing, hitting James first before moving on to Lisa. Though the wounded James attempted to flee toward his home, shouting for other neighbors to “call the cops,” Spaide soon shot him again. Meanwhile, the injured Lisa screamed, “You fucker, you!” Though Spaide was then seen walking back to his home, he wasn't done yet, Instead, Plains Township Police Chief Dale Binker said that Spaide only went inside to replace his handgun with an “AR-style rifle” so that he could continue firing on the Goys, essentially executing them. One of the last things Spaide said to his neighbors before killing them was this: “You should have kept your fucking mouth [shut].” Then, Spaide retreated to his home once more to shoot himself with a third rifle." (Spaide's suicide was not captured on video)

(Dead) The Shooter: 47 year old Jeffery Spaide.

This is the 2nd craziest story I've posted so far. Not giving you a wall of text would feel like a wasted potential.

TL;DR: On 7th of April 2007, Du'a Khalil Aswad - 17 yo Yezidi Kurdish girl from a town near Mosul, northern Iraq - was stoned to death. At the end of the month, video(s) appeared online, causing an outrage. It was an honour killing, but what happened is still unclear. Dua had a relationship with a local Sunni Kurdish teenager (19 yo) for around 4 months. Its exact character is unknown. The rage escalated when Dua didn't get back for a night once, leaving home in the evening on 5th of April. After being exposed the next day, the couple was separated: he was arrested, and she found a shelter in the house of a local cleric (village elder). Uncle and cousins assumed she may have eloped and converted to Islam in order to marry her alleged partner. It most likely didn't happen - and parents forgave Dua for whatever happened. However, for 'bringing a shame' to the family, Dua's uncle with the support of local tribal leader organized 'storm' on the cleric's house. His sons, nephews and party supporters (he was a leader of a local section of the communist party) managed to 'convince' cleric to give Dua away. After being pulled outside, to the marketplace, the girl suffered around 30 minutes of stoning, also kicking all over and stomping on her. Mostly they were her cousins - including one finishing her with a cinder block. Her body was pulled through the streets by a car, and thrown into the rubbish pit, along with a dead dog.

Sections go as follows:

  1. The videos. They are around 15 mins in total. I added a short summary (with timestamps) of what happens in them, in case someone wanted to skip it or re-watch. Some scenes required explanations, too.

  2. The stoning. A wall of text on who is who and what's not matching between the versions of this story.

  3. Aftermath, revenge killings and the trials. I couldn't find out if 4 men sentenced to hanging were executed. News on this topic end abruptly a month before the final verdict would be given.

Sources vary a lot on some aspects, sometimes contradicting each other, sometimes skipping them entirely. Certain details were precised in one source only. Some are currently down, so I linked an archived version. [EDITS will likely come, maybe with more videos from certain helpful users]



⠀THE VIDEOS :marseypopcorntime:

Part 1. Length: 2;54. Here's the beginning, including a short view on either police or other forces witnessing all the unrest. Dua is brought out from the house of the local cleric / village elder in a headlock. At first, only the crowd is shown, around 0;52 girl lying on the ground is shown, after 1;10 you can clearly see the stoning has begun. Recording seemed to be paused at 1;35. Around 1;55 she tried to stand up, but is either hit or kicked in the face, then falling down bloodied.

Part 2. Length: 1;25. Music playing over. Here someone standing in the first 'row' was recording how various men come by and kick Dua in the face, torso and abdomen or stomp on her. Around 0;35 a jacket thrown over her thigs is pulled off again, and you can clearly see the bruising in a pelvic area. A cinder block was thrown at the girl's head, and at 1;00 someone grabs it, drop on the head again, blood flowing is visible.

Part 3, split into two videos. Length: 5;10 and 5;00. The man throwing the cinder block on her head is Araas, a cousin from the girl's mother side. He later claimed that it was an act of mercy.

The guy holding the mobile pushes himself through the crowd, getting near the center at 0;40. The recording is chaotic, after 1;00 you can see either the crowd, the girl being kicked by randoms, someone else's mobile or the girl, sometimes trying to cover her face. At 2;00 someone pulls the jacket over the girl's legs again, just after another threw the cinder block on her head. This is the moment shown in the previous video. As it was recorded from the same POV, there's a chance that these two dudes recorder each other's hands holding the mobile. From 3;00 onwards, you can see the crowd gathered and looking at the now not moving girl. Before 3;20 another cinder block is thrown, this time on her back.

It begins with a zoom on a girl, now either dead or about to die. At 3;20 someone's already holding her by the arms, later other men join, and she's pulled away. In the meanwhile, the jacket thrown over her pelvic area slips down a few times, and they put it over again before walking further.

Some sources claim that the first video appeared on YouTube. It wouldn't make sense considering the time difference between the news. At 25th of April 2007, news was posted on Assyrian International News Agency website. Iit included links to 6 videos, all in .3gp format, hosted on http://jebar.info. None of these files is archived, at least under the link they provided.



⠀THE STONING :marseylaptopsad:

Du'a Khalil Aswad - a second-year student at the Fine Arts Institute in Bashiqa - was living in Bashiqa (also spelled Ba'shiqah), a town of population around 20,000 people, located around 20 km NW from Mosul. Bashika lies in Nineveh governorate, and isn't a part of the Kurdistan Region (KRI), an autonomous region. This is important due to the legal aspects: it doesn't fall under the jurisdiction of the Kurdistan Regional Government, but of the Iraqi Federal Government. Shortly after Dua's murder became a media case, an Amnesty International spokesman in London said they receive frequent reports of Iraqi 'honour crimes'. Most of them occurred in the north, inhabited mostly by the Kurds. Here's the map of the ethnic and religious groups in Iraq in 2008.

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/16841396036721053.webp

Here's the CNN news on the case, to show how the media narrative look like shortly after the murder:

Family members spoke about the details for the first time about 7 months after Dua's death. Mentioned family members or other people important to the story:

  1. Mother: Badi'aa Aswad

  2. Father: Khalil, 49 yo civil defense official

  3. Uncle: Salim, 65 yo science teacher, leader of the local section of the Iraqi Communist Party

  4. Brothers: Nebraas and one unnamed

  5. Village elder: Sheikh Sulaiman Sulaiman, in this story he was meant to be a 'negotiator'

  6. Tribal leader: Omar Hamko, 73 yo

  7. Cousins: Araas from the mother's side and several from the father's side.

  8. Boyfriend: Muhannad Ummayad, 19 yo, said to be son of a local teacher, owning cosmetic shop and either her neighbour or just local one

Sources don't precise her age. For around 4 months before the murder, she was meeting the son of a teacher from her town; also said to run a cosmetic shop. A Muslim Sheikh or cleric has given her shelter. At one night, the girl failed to return home. Sources are a bit vague, so I'll just list all the varying or unclear parts. But first, quote from 3 months before family's version was available:

After Du'a's death, the international media widely repeated a claim made on a number of Islamic extremist websites that she had been killed because she converted to Islam, but local reports do not concur. Some people tell me she had run away with her Muslim boyfriend and they had been stopped at a checkpoint outside Mosul; others say she had been seen by her father and uncle just talking with the boy in public and, fearing her family's reaction, they had sought protection at the police station. Either way, the police handed Du'a into the custody of a local Yezidi sheikh. [...]

  1. The date of disappearance, number of nights outside home and date of death is unclear. Her mother claimed that Dua left home around 7 PM on 5th of April, saying she's going to take the rubbish out. She didn't come home. In the morning, an anonymous man called to inform the family that Dua was spotted with a Muslim man. As the informant claimed he's going to kill her, father and brother of Dua contacted the police. After a few hours, they found her hiding in an olive grove with her friend.

  2. At some point, Dua was brought to the village elder's house. Family members started to talk over the possible solutions. Her mother didn't want her dead. Her father didn't want her dead, and came up with an idea of marrying Dua to the cousin and moving out to Syria. Both her uncle and the tribal leader wanted the girl dead. After the uncle started to explain why he should decide about Dua's fate, her father told him to go out. Mother had a talk with Dua, who claimed that she hasn't done anything wrong and that she's hungry - the last what Badi'aa heard from her.

  3. The next day - 7th of April - the tribal leader contacted Dua's uncle and told about the plan to bring her out of the city. He sent his sons, nephews and party supporters to surround the house. They brought firearms and stones, and started firing in the air and screaming to force the Sheikh to give the girl away. Dua's father interviewed by the local TV station stated that he sent the girl's brother to bring her home, but had no idea about the plan to kill her. According to one eyewitness, he later tried to get to Dua but the people stopped him..

Around 8 or 9 men came inside and brought here to the marketplace. Different sources also mention that 8 or 9 were directly responsible for her death, as ones 'active' in this crowd. Dua's father, though, mentioned around 20 men as her killers. Among the crowd was her uncle and a few cousins (13 in total?), all from the father's side but one - that finishing her, later stating it was out of mercy. Some sources claim she was stripped naked, but she was only stripped to the waist down, leaving underwear on. The point was a further humiliation relating to her alleged deeds. Stoning lasted for about 30 minutes. One eyewitness, a teacher, said that among the onlookers there were both policemen and some Peshmerga soldiers belonging to the Kurdistan Democratic Party. Reportedly, after the event place was 'secured' by Iraqi Army soldiers, who didn't allow to enter both the locals and the journalists.

Afterward, the girl's body was tied to the rope, then dragged through the streets by car. Instead of burial, it was thrown into the rubbish pit - possibly after burning - along with a dead dog. The family received the information about Dua's death the day later. Two brothers were sent to dig the body out of the rubbish and relocate it to the cemetery. However, someone damaged her grave there. During talk with her mother, Dua claimed that she's a virgin and did nothing wrong. Her body was sent to the Medico-Legal Institute in Mosul. Even though the 'virginity checks' are oldschool pseudoscience - which isn't surprising considering the rest of this story - at least the result of the exam was matching Dua's story.



⠀AFTERMATH, REVENGE KILLINGS AND THE TRIALS :marseyinsurgent:

On the 2nd of May, the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) issued a statement about how they condemn the stoning of 17 yo girl and, quoting: urges the Iraqi Federal Government to investigate and institute legal proceedings in the district where the killing took place. They also condemned the killings in revenge. Yezidi were already feeling persecuted by some, but fell into the conflict after Dua was murdered. Previously situation looked like that:

Bashiqa, a small town sitting in lush green hills east of the city of Mosul, used to be regarded as an island of peace and stability while vast areas of post-Saddam Iraq were plunged into civil war.

Home to a population that is 70 per cent Yezidi - members of an old sect that is neither Muslim nor Christian - Bashiqa was spared the sectarian and ethnic strife between Arabs and Kurds, radical Sunnis and Shia that plagued surrounding areas. People from Mosul would drive the 25 kilometres to Bashiqa to have picnics and to enjoy the tranquility of a little town where Yezidi temples, Muslim mosques and Christian churches stand in close proximity, presenting a rare image of tolerant coexistence.

On 22nd of April, a bus transporting elderly workers from a textile factory in Mosul back to Bashiqa was stopped at a fake checkpoint. Gunmen from an extremist Sunni group told the Christians and Muslims to go away, and took the Yezidi workers to the east of the city. They were instructed to get out, lined up and executed. Between 20 and 24 men were shot dead. Around this time, some Yezidis living in the city started fleeing to the countryside. Among them were around 800 students from the Mosul university.

The stoning of Dua Khalil Aswad could also be one of the events provoking a suicide bomb attack on two Yezidi villages (14th of August 2007), killing from around 300 to 500 people. Officially, the number of victims is 411; according to Iraqi Red Crescent, it could have exceeded 500. Targeted villages were Kahtaniya, Tal Uzair, and the residential area of al-Jazeera.

Most sources mentioning the other 'honour killings' focused only on the following ones. But these are showing the context:

Duaa’s case is not the first time conversion and marriage prohibitions have led to violence. A few months before she died, a family killed their daughter because she had converted to Islam. They shot her with a single bullet to the head, and little attention was paid to the case.

Two months before Duaa’s death, a Yezidi man from Shekan, a village near Bashiqa, eloped with a Muslim girl. The girl was later found beheaded, allegedly by Muslims from her own village, and several Yezidi houses and religious sites were set alight.

These incidents may help explain why the killing of Duaa escalated so swiftly into bloodshed between Muslims and Yezidis.


The rest is mostly quotes, as there's no clear follow-up story after April 2010. News mention few cops 'possibly facing consequences', which means nothing. Initially, Dua's boyfriend was arrested (while uncle and tribe leader were free), eventually he moved out of the city. I didn't find out what were the family's decisions, but they were no longer wanted in the community and someone threatened them by throwing a grenade into their garden.

There are frequent reports of "honour crimes" in Iraq - in particular in the Kurdistan region. The 1969 Iraqi Penal Code contains provisions that allow lenient punishment for "honour killings" on the grounds of provocation or if the accused had "honourable motives" (Article 128). For decades the Iraqi judiciary has relied on Article 128 to allow such attempts to justify the killings as mitigating circumstances when determining sentences for the perpetrators of "honour killings".

Despite a worldwide outrage at this act, and national protests to pressurize both Iraqi and Kurdistan Regional Governments to bring killers to justice, after one year of this crime, they were released and an amount of 4 million Iraqi dinars were paid to Du’a Khalils family to keep them silent about it.

News from 16th of May 2007:

PUK Media website reported that the Iraqi security forces arrested 16 people accused of stoning and killing of the Kurdish Yazidi girl Dua, who was only 17 years old. A source from Mosul city, Friday told PUKmedia, that 4 of the detainees on the background of this charge referred to the Court and will go on trial on terrorism charge

This is from the news from the end of April 2010. Sentences had to be confirmed by the Iraqi Supreme Court in May 2010.

Two of those who were found guilty last month are cousins of the dead girl, named as Aras Farid Salim and Wahid Farid Salim. "Some of her relatives came to me recently and asked for me to help get the death sentences commuted, but I refused because I agree with the verdict," says Khasro Goran, leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party in Nineveh province where the killing took place.

Provincial officials don't think much could have been done to stop the honour killing, but at least three officers are being investigated and could be fired.

"The climate, the religious and social climate is such that people can do that in daylight and that authorities do not intervene," said the spokeswoman for the Organization of Women's' Freedom in Iraq, Houzan Mahmoud.

Basic Information:

--

The case began on June 6, 1996, when Routier called 911 reporting that an intruder had broken into her home in Rowlett, Texas, and attacked her and her two sons, Damon and Devon, while they were sleeping.

Upon arrival, emergency responders found Devon, aged 6, dead at the scene, while Damon, aged 5, died shortly after being transported to the hospital. Routier herself had sustained stab wounds. She told police that an intruder had entered the house and attacked them, but she had survived.

However, the police investigation raised doubts about Routier's account. Evidence suggested the crime scene might have been staged and that Routier's wounds were self-inflicted. The prosecution argued that Routier murdered her sons due to financial stress and a desire to rid herself of responsibilities that interfered with her lifestyle.

In 1997, Darlie Routier was convicted of the murder of her younger son, Damon, and sentenced to death. The case against her was primarily based on the forensic evidence gathered at the scene, as well as the behavior she exhibited in the days following the murders, including a videotape of her spraying silly string at her sons' graves during a birthday commemoration, which the prosecution used to question her character.

Routier has maintained her innocence, and her case has garnered a significant amount of attention and support from those who believe she was wrongfully convicted. Advocates for Routier argue that the investigation was flawed, the trial was biased, and that there was a lack of direct evidence linking her to the murders. Over the years, there have been numerous appeals and requests for forensic testing of evidence using advanced techniques not available during the original trial.

Motive:

--

The prosecution argued that Darlie Routier murdered her sons due to the family's financial struggles. Despite being a full-time homemaker, her husband Darin, a small business owner, had a relatively high income. In a subsequent interview with Joe Munoz of KXAS Channel 5 in Dallas-Fort Worth, Darin Routier referred to their lifestyle as "living large" just days after the tragic deaths. The family resided in a two-story home in a middle-class neighborhood, drove a mid-sized SUV, and owned a used Jaguar automobile and a used boat.

According to the prosecutors, Darlie Routier was portrayed as a pampered and materialistic woman facing substantial debt, declining credit ratings, and limited funds in the bank. Allegedly fearing the imminent end of her middle-class lifestyle, she was accused of resorting to the drastic measure of murdering her sons.


Court of Criminal Appeals of Texas:

ONLY PARTS DUE TO GOING OVER 100K LIMIT:

Routier v. State

Darlie Lynn ROUTIER, Appellant,

v.

The STATE of Texas.

No. 72795.

May 21, 2003

J. Stephen Cooper, Dallas, for Appellant.John R. Rolater, Jr., Asst. DA, Dallas, Matthew Paul, State's Attorney, Austin, for State.

The appellant was convicted of the capital murder of a child under six years of age.  Tex. Penal Code § 19.03(a)(8).   Pursuant to the jury's answers to the special issues set forth in Texas Code of Criminal Procedure article 37.071, sections 2(b) and 2(e), the trial judge sentenced appellant to death.  Tex.Code Crim. Proc. art. 37.071, § 2(g).  Direct appeal to this Court is automatic.  Tex.Code Crim. Proc. art. 37.071, § 2(h).  The appellant raises fourteen points of error.   We shall affirm.

The evidence that supports the verdict shows that the appellant stabbed and killed her two sons, Damon and Devon,1 while her husband and infant son were asleep upstairs in the house.   The appellant does not challenge the legal or factual sufficiency of the evidence to support her conviction, and therefore, it is not necessary to set out the evidence in detail.

I. Claims Regarding the Record

In her brief, the appellant makes several claims regarding the preparation and certification of the reporter's record in addition to claims regarding her trial.   We will address claims dealing with the accuracy of the record before dealing with the appellant's claims regarding her trial.   Specifically, the appellant complains that she is entitled to a new trial because of problems with the reporter's record.   She argues that, at a minimum, she is entitled to a hearing before the record can be used to decide her appeal.   A review of the facts pertaining to these points of error is necessary.

The appellant's trial took place in January 1997.   The certified court reporter, Sandra Halsey, took stenographic notes during the trial.   Halsey simultaneously typed notes of the proceedings onto paper strips (“notes”) and onto computer edit disks (“disks”) that automatically translated the stenographic symbols into English.   In April 1998, under an order of contempt issued by this Court the month before,2 Halsey prepared, certified, and filed the original reporter's record in the case (“Halsey record”).

In a motion to correct and clarify Halsey's record, filed October 13, 1998, the appellant raised the first dispute about the accuracy of the record.   An excerpt of the record that had been read to the jury did not match the corresponding portion of the Halsey record.   Also, counsel noted discrepancies about who was present during the trial and when.   The next day this Court granted the appellant's motion and ordered Halsey to prepare, certify, and file a supplemental reporter's record containing any omitted items.   We also ordered the trial court 3 to resolve any dispute raised in the appellant's motion and to ensure that the reporter's record conformed to what occurred at trial.

The trial court conducted a hearing and decided that the entire record had to be reviewed to comply with this Court's October 14, 1998 order.   In a hearing held October 30, 1998, pursuant to our order, Halsey testified that she made audiotape recordings (“tapes”) in addition to the notes and disks during the trial.   Halsey claimed that the audiotape recorder worked during only the voir dire portion of the trial.   The trial court ordered Halsey to produce her notes, disks, and tapes from the trial.   The trial court also ordered her to conduct a review of the record and make note of any problems she found or corrections she made.

At a hearing held on November 4, 1998, the trial court appointed three certified court reporters, Tommy Mullins, Judy Miller, and Jerry Calloway (“the experts”), to perform a review and to compare the notes and disks to Halsey's record to determine whether Halsey's record could be certified.

Although Halsey had told the trial court and the experts that she possessed no tapes from the guilt and punishment phases of the trial, on November 12, 1998, she told prosecutor Lindsey Roberts and appellant's counsel Stephen Cooper that tapes from those phases of the trial did exist.   According to a stipulation read into the record, she went with Roberts to retrieve the tapes from a storage facility in Plano.   Halsey told Roberts that the tapes she produced were from the Routier trial.   These tapes were produced during the hearing in the trial court on November 13, 1998.   The appellant expressed concern about the authenticity of the tapes.   The trial court received the tapes with the understanding that the question of their authenticity would be subject to further review.

Also during the hearing on November 13, the experts testified that they performed their review by comparing a total of twelve random pages from four of the ten volumes of Halsey's record of the trial with the corresponding notes and disks.   On each of the four pages, the experts found several differences between what was in the notes and what was on the pages from the record.   They concluded that the only way to account for so many differences between the notes and Halsey's record is that someone listened to tapes from the trial and made changes based on the tapes.4

Halsey's daughter and transcription scopist,5 Suzy Crowley, testified that Halsey gave her tapes of the guilt and punishment phases of trial.   Crowley stated that she used the tapes to make permanent changes to the English translation of the original proceedings on the disks.   She testified that the tapes presented by Roberts looked similar to the ones she had used and that they had labels on them that identified them as being from the Routier trial.   Scopist Michelle Reynolds reviewed and edited the voir dire portion of the trial.

Halsey did not testify at the hearing on November 13, 1998.   The trial court appointed counsel for her.   At the conclusion of the hearing, the trial court rescinded its prior order of October 30, 1998, to have Halsey review her record and ordered her to cease any proceedings regarding the record.   The trial court said it would appoint a certified reporter, agreeable to both the State and the appellant, to review Halsey's record and determine whether it could be made to conform to what occurred at trial.

On November 19, 1998, the trial court appointed Susan Simmons, a certified court reporter for the United States District Court in Tyler, to perform a review of the guilt and punishment phases of the record, as well as the pretrial hearings.6  The parties and the experts all agreed that Simmons was qualified and competent to perform the review.   During the hearing, the appellant's counsel explained that he was not sure if it was legally permissible or even possible to certify the record.   He reserved the right to offer evidence on this point at a later time.   Halsey appeared with her attorney that day.   To comply with a subpoena duces tecum requesting all materials regarding the appellant's trial, her attorney turned over the notes and disks for the entire trial.   Halsey refused to testify, however, and asserted her Fifth Amendment privilege.

On December 9, 1998, Halsey's attorney produced twelve more tapes, which he claimed were additional tapes from the trial.   Halsey was then relieved of her duties as the official court reporter in this case.   The trial court ordered Halsey to continue to look for more tapes.

On April 1, 1999, the trial court conducted a hearing during which Simmons testified that she had revised the Halsey record of the guilt and punishment phases of the appellant's trial.   Simmons submitted the revised record (“Simmons record”) and her red-lined copy of the Halsey record that reflected all of the changes that she had made.   Counsel for the appellant and the State were not permitted to question Simmons directly.7  Before the hearing, the trial court provided to the parties the questions it would ask Simmons.   The parties were permitted to submit written questions to the trial court, and the trial court read the questions that it concluded were relevant and not repetitive.   The trial court instructed the parties not to object to questions during the testimony;  they were directed to submit those objections before the next hearing.   The trial court stated that it would also afford the parties an opportunity to submit a bill of exceptions.   The parties were given a break during the testimony to submit further questions based on the testimony that had already been heard.

Simmons testified about the standard procedures for preparing a record of proceedings.   First, during the proceedings, the certified court reporter writes on a machine notes of what occurs.   The notes include a list of the people who are present, the date of the proceedings, the name of the proceedings, the testimony taken, and the list of exhibits.   The machine simultaneously prints the symbols onto the notes and records the symbols onto a disk or hard drive.   The symbols on the notes cannot be read or deciphered by someone without some training as a court reporter or scopist.   The notes are labeled with the date and subject matter.   It is common for the court reporter to use an audiotape recorder as a backup.   Generally, the recorder is connected to the microphones on the witness stand, the attorneys' tables, and the judge's bench.

Simmons testified that after the proceedings are over, the court reporter takes the disk to a computer and uses software, to which the reporter's personal dictionary has been added.   The dictionary in the software produces an English translation of the symbols.   The computer produces a split screen on the monitor, which shows the symbols on one side and the English translation on the other side.   The English translation will show some “untranslates,” which are symbols that the software does not recognize.   After the reporter enters the correct word, the symbol for the word and its translation are added to the reporter's personal dictionary.

According to Simmons's testimony, if the reporter uses a scopist, and most do, the translation is put on a duplicate disk, which is given to a scopist along with the backup tapes.   The scopist performs the first edit.   Ordinarily, the scopist loads the disk and listens to the tapes going line-by-line checking for corrections and unrecognized words.   Then this edited version is saved on another disk to leave intact the original English translation that was produced at trial,8 and all the materials are returned to the reporter.

Simmons indicated that the reporter, after receiving the materials from the scopist, proofreads either the hard copy of the new translation or the on-screen copy while listening to the tapes.   Then the reporter proofreads the record one more time, checks for spelling errors, and prints and certifies the record.

Simmons testified about her work in the appellant's case.   She explained that she followed the instructions in the trial court's order.   The trial court had not ordered Simmons to certify the record;  she was ordered to review the record from the guilt and punishment phases of the trial and to certify it if possible.   She possessed the Halsey record, the disks, tapes, notes, and some handwritten notations by Halsey.   She followed the procedure that is ordinarily employed when a court reporter is unable to produce the record because of either death or disability.

Simmons testified that she first went through the notes and the tapes to be sure that she had them for each volume of the Halsey record she had been assigned.   She said that it appeared that she had been provided with a complete set of materials for the guilt and punishment phases of the trial.   She said it was possible to create a certifiable record based on the materials provided.   The notes prepared on the machine appeared to be complete with no gaps in the proceedings and within the range of competent reporting.   The disks were in useable form and appeared to be complete.   The tapes were audible and seemed to be complete with no discernible gaps or alterations.

Simmons testified that she started the review process by listening to the tapes while going through the Halsey record line-by-line.   She marked the corrections onto her copy of the Halsey record.   When she had questions, she flipped to the appropriate portion of the notes.   She did not perform a systematic review of the notes.   She was able to identify witnesses when they stated their names at the beginning of their testimony.   If a voice was not identified in this manner, she used the notes, which contained symbols identifying the speakers.

Simmons then took the marked version of the Halsey record and the disks to her scopist.   The scopist copied each disk onto her hard drive.   Then she made the changes marked in pen and saved the files on new disks so that there would be no alteration of the disks provided by Halsey.   The scopist printed a hard copy of the changes.   Simmons proofread the hard-copy by doing a page-by-page comparison of the changes.

This procedure was followed until all of the volumes for the guilt and punishment phases were completed.   Then Simmons prepared a master index, exhibit index, and witness index, which was compared to the scopist's list.   Three hard copies of the final edited version (“Simmons record”) were produced along with disks with a universal translation.9

Simmons testified that she believed that Halsey used more than one scopist to create the record.   It is standard practice for the reporter who actually heard the trial to review the changes a scopist makes using the tapes.   It is normal for the final record to be different in some respects from the unedited notes.   The purpose of editing the notes is to make them reflect, as nearly as possible, what happened at trial.   Simmons said that the Halsey record was inaccurate and poorly prepared.   She opined that the deficiencies in the Halsey record were based on a lack of proper editing.   Simmons did not attend any of the proceedings in Kerrville and had no personal knowledge of what happened at trial.   But Simmons testified that she believed, based on the materials provided and her expertise, she was able to render a complete and accurate record that conforms to what occurred at trial.   She said that, if the materials did not contain a complete and accurate account of the proceedings, then the Simmons record could suffer from the same flaws.   But she believed that the materials provided accurate information for preparing the record.   Simmons has reconstructed trial records in other cases, and she was able to certify records in those cases.   In her expert opinion, the record as prepared by her had been made to conform to what happened at trial to ninety-five percent accuracy.

On April 26, 1999, the Court of Criminal Appeals ordered the trial court to ensure that the entire record, including voir dire and pretrial proceedings, conformed to what happened at trial.   We ordered the trial court to independently review other parts of the record in the same manner as it had the guilt and punishment phases.   On May 4, 1999, the trial court appointed Simmons and her scopist to prepare the remaining portions of the record.

On October 14, 1999, a hearing was held to receive the remaining portions of the record that Simmons had completed.   She testified that the tapes were audible and seemed to have no gaps or alterations, the disks for the volumes-other than Volume 16-were useable, and the notes-although there were mistakes-could be used to the extent she needed them.   She testified that, once again, she was able to certify that the record conformed to what occurred at trial.   She testified that she used the same procedures used to complete the guilt and punishment phases of the record, with one exception.   For Volume 16, there was no disk.   Therefore, Simmons proofread the hard copy of the Halsey record with the tapes and had her scopist retype the entire volume.

Later, the parties and the trial court became aware that Volumes 10 and 11 had not been sent to Simmons for preparation.   The materials were then sent to Simmons, and she was ordered to review the materials in the same manner as she had reviewed the other portions of the trial.   The trial court ordered Simmons to revise and certify a record if possible.10

At a hearing on January 28, 2000, Simmons testified that she followed the same procedure for preparing and certifying the record, except for the first 54 pages of Volume 10.11  These pages contained the proceedings for October 21, 1996.   For those 54 pages, Simmons had the Halsey record, the notes, and the disk, but no tape.   Going line-by-line, she compared the Halsey record with the notes taken on the day the proceedings occurred.   She noted that there did not appear to be any gaps in the notes and that they were in good and useable form.   Simmons refused to certify these pages, however.   She explained that, based on the portions of the record she had prepared already and the state of the Halsey record, she was not comfortable certifying the first 54 pages without a tape to compare to the Halsey record.   She said that her record for the first 54 pages of Volume 10 is an accurate transcription of Halsey's notes.   Her decision not to certify was based on the following facts:  she was not present at trial;  she had no tape to use as a backup;  and her review of the rest of the record indicated that she needed a tape to correct the record because it had been edited so poorly.

Simmons testified that on the tape for the afternoon session of court on October 21, 1996, in a conversation between Halsey and someone from the Sheriff's Department, Halsey mentioned that she needed some batteries.12  Simmons believed that this might explain the absence of a tape for the morning session.   Simmons believed, however, that a tape existed for the morning session because there were words that appeared in the Halsey record that did not appear in the notes.   At the conclusion of the hearing, the trial court announced that it would give the parties 120 days in which to review the entire record and make objections.

On February 9, 2000, the trial court issued an order stating that Volumes 10 and 11 of the Simmons record should replace the same volumes of the Halsey record because the Halsey record did not conform to what occurred at trial.   The Court, by agreement of the parties, gave the parties until March 6, 2000, to file objections to the Simmons record.

On March 2, 2000, the appellant filed written objections to the Simmons record and a written request for a hearing to resolve factual disputes about the record.   The State's response to the appellant's written objections was filed April 28, 2000.   On September 1, 2000, the trial court scheduled a hearing on the appellant's objections to the record to take place on September 8, 2000.   The appellant's attorney subpoenaed several witnesses, including Judy Miller, Mary Docklar, Jerry Calloway, Doug Mulder, Jeff Crilley, Lindsey Roberts, Toby Shook, and Greg Davis.

On September 7, 2000, the trial court issued findings on the record and an order cancelling the hearing scheduled for the next day.   The findings say that the trial court reviewed the orders issued by the Court of Criminal Appeals, the record from all hearings held to comply with the orders issued by the Court of Criminal Appeals, the findings and orders of the trial court, the appellant's objections to the record, and the State's response.   The trial court found that the appellant's objections were clear and concise and would apprise the Court of Criminal Appeals of the appellant's concerns about the record.   It found that the appellant's motions to suppress evidence in the proceedings on the record were beyond the scope of the orders of the Court of Criminal Appeals.   It also found that an evidentiary hearing as requested by the appellant was not necessary to comply with the orders of the Court of Criminal Appeals, the orders had been complied with, and that it would not hold any other hearings unless the Court of Criminal Appeals so ordered.

In response to the trial court's order cancelling the hearing, the appellant filed her Formal Bill of Exception No. 1 and a Motion for a Hearing to Make an Offer of Proof on September 25, 2000.

The trial court responded with a finding that it no longer had jurisdiction of the case.   The court forwarded the appellant's pleadings to the Court of Criminal Appeals without taking action.

Routier v. State

Darlie Lynn ROUTIER, Appellant,

v.

The STATE of Texas.

No. 72795.

May 21, 2003

J. Stephen Cooper, Dallas, for Appellant.John R. Rolater, Jr., Asst. DA, Dallas, Matthew Paul, State's Attorney, Austin, for State.

The appellant was convicted of the capital murder of a child under six years of age.  Tex. Penal Code § 19.03(a)(8).   Pursuant to the jury's answers to the special issues set forth in Texas Code of Criminal Procedure article 37.071, sections 2(b) and 2(e), the trial judge sentenced appellant to death.  Tex.Code Crim. Proc. art. 37.071, § 2(g).  Direct appeal to this Court is automatic.  Tex.Code Crim. Proc. art. 37.071, § 2(h).  The appellant raises fourteen points of error.   We shall affirm.

The evidence that supports the verdict shows that the appellant stabbed and killed her two sons, Damon and Devon,1 while her husband and infant son were asleep upstairs in the house.   The appellant does not challenge the legal or factual sufficiency of the evidence to support her conviction, and therefore, it is not necessary to set out the evidence in detail.

I. Claims Regarding the Record

In her brief, the appellant makes several claims regarding the preparation and certification of the reporter's record in addition to claims regarding her trial.   We will address claims dealing with the accuracy of the record before dealing with the appellant's claims regarding her trial.   Specifically, the appellant complains that she is entitled to a new trial because of problems with the reporter's record.   She argues that, at a minimum, she is entitled to a hearing before the record can be used to decide her appeal.   A review of the facts pertaining to these points of error is necessary.

On March 2, 2000, the appellant filed written objections to the Simmons record and a written request for a hearing to resolve factual disputes about the record.   The State's response to the appellant's written objections was filed April 28, 2000.   On September 1, 2000, the trial court scheduled a hearing on the appellant's objections to the record to take place on September 8, 2000.   The appellant's attorney subpoenaed several witnesses, including Judy Miller, Mary Docklar, Jerry Calloway, Doug Mulder, Jeff Crilley, Lindsey Roberts, Toby Shook, and Greg Davis.

On September 7, 2000, the trial court issued findings on the record and an order cancelling the hearing scheduled for the next day.   The findings say that the trial court reviewed the orders issued by the Court of Criminal Appeals, the record from all hearings held to comply with the orders issued by the Court of Criminal Appeals, the findings and orders of the trial court, the appellant's objections to the record, and the State's response.   The trial court found that the appellant's objections were clear and concise and would apprise the Court of Criminal Appeals of the appellant's concerns about the record.   It found that the appellant's motions to suppress evidence in the proceedings on the record were beyond the scope of the orders of the Court of Criminal Appeals.   It also found that an evidentiary hearing as requested by the appellant was not necessary to comply with the orders of the Court of Criminal Appeals, the orders had been complied with, and that it would not hold any other hearings unless the Court of Criminal Appeals so ordered.

In response to the trial court's order cancelling the hearing, the appellant filed her Formal Bill of Exception No. 1 and a Motion for a Hearing to Make an Offer of Proof on September 25, 2000.

The trial court responded with a finding that it no longer had jurisdiction of the case.   The court forwarded the appellant's pleadings to the Court of Criminal Appeals without taking action.


Routier was ultimately convicted of murdering the younger of her two sons, and was sentenced to death by lethal injection. Prosecutors did not try Routier for the death of her older son, holding his murder in reserve in the event she was acquitted in the first murder trial or her conviction was overturned on appeal, as there is no statute of limitations on any murder charge in Texas. Routier's defense attorney, Douglas Mulder, was the prosecutor responsible for the wrongful conviction and subsequent death penalty (both since overturned) of Randall Adams in 1977. The Adams case is profiled in the documentary The Thin Blue Line.

EFFORTPOST The victims of the ‘Ken And Barbie Killers'

About Karla:

Karla Leanne Homolka, also known by the names Karla Leanne Teale and Leanne Bordelais, was born on May 4, 1970, in Port Credit, Ontario, Canada. She gained international notoriety after being convicted as a serial killer. Her crimes involved the 1991 and 1992 rape-murders of two Ontario teenage girls, Leslie Mahaffy and Kristen French, as well as the rape and death of her own sister Tammy.

In 1993, Homolka and her partner in crime, Paul Bernardo (who was also her husband), were apprehended. Bernardo was subsequently convicted of the murders of the two teenagers in 1995 and received the harshest penalty under Canadian law, a life sentence along with the designation of a dangerous offender.

During the 1993 investigation, Homolka initially claimed that she had been coerced and abused by Bernardo, asserting that she was an unwilling accomplice in the murders. This led to a plea bargain with prosecutors, resulting in a reduced prison sentence of 12 years in exchange for a guilty plea to manslaughter.

However, later evidence in the form of videotapes revealed Homolka's more active involvement than she had initially admitted. This revelation led to widespread public condemnation of the plea deal, earning it the moniker "Deal with the Devil" in the Canadian media. This controversy persisted even after her high-profile release from prison in 2005.

Following her release, Homolka relocated to the province of Quebec, where she got married and had a son. In 2007, Canadian media reported that she had left Canada for the Antilles with her husband and child, assuming the name Leanne Teale. In 2012, journalist Paula Todd discovered Homolka living in Guadeloupe under the name Leanne Bordelais, with her husband and their three children.

Murder Victims::marseydead::marseybeheading:

Tammy Homolka:

By 1990, Bernardo was spending large amounts of time with the Homolka family, who liked him. He was engaged to the eldest daughter and flirted constantly with the youngest one. He had not told them that he had lost his job as an accountant, and instead was smuggling cigarettes across the nearby US–Canadian border. He had become obsessed with Tammy Homolka, peeping into her window and entering her room to masturbate while she slept. Karla Homolka helped him by breaking the blinds in her sister's window to allow Bernardo access. In July, Bernardo took Tammy across the border to get beer for a party. While there, Bernardo later told his fiancee, "they got drunk and began making out."

According to Bernardo's testimony at his trial, on July 24, 1990, Karla Homolka laced spaghetti sauce with crushed Valium she had stolen from her employer, Martindale Animal Clinic. She served dinner to her sister, who soon lost consciousness. Bernardo began to rape Tammy while Karla watched.

Over the summer, he supplied Tammy and her friends with gifts, food, and sodas that had "a film and a few white flecks on the top."

Six months before their 1991 wedding, Karla Homolka stole the anaesthetic agent Halothane from the clinic. On December 23, 1990, Homolka and Bernardo administered sleeping pills to the 15-year-old in a rum-and-eggnog cocktail. After Tammy was unconscious, Homolka and Bernardo undressed her and Karla applied a Halothane soaked cloth to her sister's nose and mouth.

Karla Homolka wanted to "give Tammy's virginity to Bernardo for Christmas" as, according to Homolka, Bernardo was disappointed by not having been Karla's first sex partner. With Tammy's parents sleeping upstairs, the pair videotaped themselves as they raped her in the basement. Tammy began to vomit. The pair tried to revive her, then called 911, but not before they hid evidence, dressed Tammy, and moved her into her basement bedroom. A few hours later Tammy Homolka was pronounced dead at St. Catharines General Hospital without having regained consciousness.

Despite the pair's behaviour – vacuuming and washing laundry in the middle of the night, and despite the presence of a chemical burn on Tammy's face, Niagara Regional Coroner and the Homolka family accepted the pair's version of events. The official cause of Tammy Homolka's death was accidental – choking on her vomit after consumption of alcohol. The pair subsequently videotaped themselves with Karla wearing Tammy's clothing and pretending to be her. They also moved out of the Homolka house to a rented Port Dalhousie bungalow, to let her parents cope with their grief.

Leslie Mahaffy:

Early in the morning on June 15, 1991, Bernardo took a detour through Burlington, halfway between Toronto and St. Catharines, to steal license plates. He found Leslie Mahaffy. The 14-year-old had missed her curfew after attending a funeral, was locked out of her house and had been unable to find anyone with whom she could stay overnight. It was then that Bernado left his car and eyed up his victim.

Bernardo approached her and told her he was looking to break into a neighbour's house. Unfazed, she asked if he had any cigarettes. As Bernardo led her to his car he blindfolded her, forced her into the vehicle and drove her to Port Dalhousie, where he informed Homolka that they had a playmate. Bernardo and Homolka subsequently videotaped themselves torturing and sexually abusing Mahaffy, all while listening to Bob Marley and David Bowie. At one point, Bernardo said "You're doing a good job, Leslie, a damned good job." Then he added, "The next two hours are going to determine what I do to you. Right now, you're scoring perfect." On another segment of tape, played at Bernardo's trial, the assault escalated. Mahaffy cried out in pain and begged Bernardo to stop. In the Crown description of the scene, he was sodomizing her while her hands were bound with twine. Later Mahaffy told Bernardo that her blindfold seemed to be slipping, an ominous development as it signaled the possibility that she might be able to identify both her tormentors if permitted to live.

The following day, Bernardo claimed, Homolka fed her a lethal dose of Halcion. Homolka claimed that, instead, Bernardo strangled her. The pair put her body in their basement.

The following day the Homolka family had dinner at the house.

After the Homolkas and their remaining daughter, Lori, had left, Bernardo and Homolka decided the best way to dispose of the evidence would be to dismember Leslie Mahaffy and encase each piece in cement. Bernardo bought a dozen bags of cement at a hardware store the following day. He kept the receipts which would prove damaging at his trial. Bernardo used his grandfather's circular saw to cut the body. Bernardo and Homolka then made numerous trips to dump the cement blocks in Lake Gibson, 18 kilometers south of Port Dalhousie. At least one of the blocks weighed 90 kg (200 pounds) and proved beyond the pair's patience or abilities to sink. It rested near the shore, where a father and son on a fishing expedition discovered it on June 29, 1991. Leslie Mahaffy's orthodontic appliance proved instrumental in identifying her.

Kristen French:

On the afternoon of April 16, 1992, Bernardo and Homolka were driving through St. Catharines to look for potential victims. It was after school hours on the day before Good Friday. Students were still going home but by and large the streets were empty. As they passed Holy Cross Secondary School, a main Catholic high school in the city's north end, they spotted Kristen French, a 15-year-old student, walking briskly to her nearby home. The couple pulled into the parking lot of nearby Grace Lutheran Church and Homolka got out of the car, map in hand, pretending to need assistance.

As French looked at the map, Bernardo attacked from behind, brandishing a knife and forcing her into the front seat of their car. From her back seat, Homolka controlled the girl by pulling down her hair.

French took the same route home every day, taking about 15 minutes to get home in order to attend to her dog's needs. Soon after she should have arrived, her parents became convinced that she had met with foul play and notified police. Within 24 hours, Niagara Regional Police (NRP) had assembled a team and searched the area along her route and found several witnesses who had seen the abduction from different locations, thus giving police a fairly clear picture. In addition, one of Kristen's shoes, recovered from the parking lot, underscored the seriousness of the abduction.

Over the three days of Easter weekend, Bernardo and Homolka videotaped themselves as they tortured, raped and sodomized Kristen French, forcing her to drink large amounts of alcohol and to behave submissively to Bernardo. At Bernardo's trial, Crown prosecutor Ray Houlahan said that Bernardo always intended to kill her because she was never blindfolded and was capable of identifying her captors.

While Bernardo was out buying pizza on April 18 he was spotted by Kerry Patrich, whom he had stalked the previous month. Her report to NRP was mishandled by police, as noted by Judge Archie Campbell in his 1995 inquiry into the police investigation of Bernardo's crimes, thus negating any chance of Kristen French's being discovered at the Bernardo house.

The following day, the couple murdered French before going to the Homolkas' for Easter dinner. Homolka testified at her trial that Bernardo had strangled French for exactly seven minutes while she watched. Bernardo said Homolka beat her with a rubber mallet because she had tried to escape and that French ended up being strangled on a noose tied around her neck secured to a hope chest. Immediately thereafter, Homolka went to fix her hair.

French's nude body was found in a ditch on April 30, 1992 in Burlington, approximately 45 minutes from St. Catharines, and a short distance from the cemetery where Leslie Mahaffy is buried. She had been washed and her hair had been cut off. It was originally thought that the hair was removed as a trophy, but Homolka testified that the hair had been cut to impede identification.

Paul Bernardo's Serial Rape TimeLine:

--

Bernardo committed multiple sexual assaults, escalating in viciousness, in and around Scarborough, Ontario. Most of the assaults were on young women whom he had stalked after they exited buses late in the evening.

  • May 4, 1987, Bernardo committed his first rape in Scarborough against a 21-year-old woman, in front of her parents' house, after following her home. The attack lasted more than half an hour.

  • May 14, 1987, Bernardo committed his second rape. He attacked a 19-year-old woman in the back yard of her parents' house. This incident lasted over an hour.

  • July 27, 1987, Bernardo attempted his third rape. Although he beat the young woman, he abandoned the attack after she fought back.

  • December 16, 1987, Bernardo committed his third rape, against a 15-year-old girl. This rape lasted about one hour. The following day, the Toronto Police Service issued a warning to women in Scarborough travelling alone at night, especially those taking buses.

  • December 23, 1987, Bernardo committed his fourth rape. During this attack, Bernardo raped the 17-year-old with the knife he used to threaten his victims. It was at this point he began to be referred to as the 'Scarborough Rapist'.

  • April 18, 1988, Bernardo attacked a 17-year-old. The fifth assault, this one lasted 45 minutes.

  • May 25, 1988, Bernardo was nearly caught by a uniformed Metro Toronto investigator staking out a bus shelter. The investigator noticed him hiding under a tree and pursued him on foot, but Bernardo escaped.

  • May 30, 1988, Bernardo committed his sixth rape, this time in Clarkson, about 25 miles southwest of Scarborough. This attack, against an 18-year-old, lasted 30 minutes.

  • October 4, 1988, Bernardo attempted a seventh Scarborough rape. His intended victim fought him off but he inflicted two stab wounds to her thigh and buttock which required 12 stitches.

  • November 16, 1988, Bernardo committed his seventh rape against an 18-year-old in the backyard of her parents' house.

  • November 17, 1988, Metro Police formed a special task force dedicated to capturing the Scarborough Rapist.

  • December 27, 1988, an alerted neighbor chased Bernardo off after he had begun his attempted eighth rape.

  • June 20, 1989, Bernardo attempted to rape another young woman. She fought against him and her screams alerted neighbors. Bernardo fled with scratches on his face.

  • August 15, 1989, Bernardo committed his eighth rape, against a 22-year-old woman. He had stalked her the previous night from outside the window of her apartment and waited for her to arrive home. This particularly vicious attack lasted two hours.

  • November 21, 1989, Bernardo committed his ninth rape, against a 15-year-old whom he saw in a bus shelter. This attack lasted 45 minutes.

  • December 22, 1989, Bernardo committed his tenth rape, against a 19-year-old. This attack occurred in a stairwell of an underground parking lot and lasted 30 minutes.

  • May 26, 1990, Bernardo committed his eleventh rape. This rape lasted over an hour. However, his 19-year-old victim's vivid recollection of her attacker permitted police to make a computer composite photograph, which was released two days later by police and published in Toronto and area newspapers.

  • July 1990, two months after receiving tips that Bernardo fit the Scarborough Rapist composite, he was interviewed by two police detectives.

Transcripts from Bernardo and Homolka's home movies - this part is discussing the murder of Karla's sister, Tammy:

...a seemingly relaxed Homolka pulling down her husband's pants, fondling his penis, which she called Snuggles, and then performing fellatio during most of the tape, stopping every now and then to talk about what had happened to her dead sister.

"I loved it when you fucked my little sister," Homolka said to Bernardo, who was lying on his back beside the roaring hearth, moaning softly while she rubbed his penis.

"I loved it when you fucked Tammy. I loved it when you took her virginity. You're the king. I love licking your ass, Paul. I'll bet Tammy would have loved to lick your ass. I loved it when you put Snuggles up her ass."

Bernardo could be seen reaching for his drink while Homolka continued to fondle his penis. She did it for several minutes, but he never climaxed. He took a sip from his drink, glancing at the back of her head while she worked on him, and asked about her thoughts on the night Tammy died. "How did you feel?"

"I felt proud. I felt happy," she replied.

"What else?"

"I felt horny. It's my mission in life to make you feel good."

"This is why I'm gonna marry her," Bernardo said, looking at the camera and holding up his drink while Homolka continued performing fellatio. "......... to the king."

"I'm glad you made me lick her cunt," Homolka continued, after pausing to take a break from the oral sex.

"Are you a fully fledged ****?" Bernardo asked, a reference to Homolka having sex with her sister.

"No, I'm not."

"You were having sex with your little sister."

"That was different. It was my little sister," she replied, stroking his penis.

"Love in the family," Bernardo said. "Do you believe in that concept?"

"You know I had fun doing it," Homolka said. "You know I liked it."

"What did it teach you?"

"Well... we like little girls, I like you to fuck them. If you're gonna fuck them, then I'm gonna lick them. All the little girls."

"What age should they be?"

"Thirteen."

"Why?"

"Because it will make you happy."

"But why 13?"

"That's a good age."

"Because why?" he persisted.

"Because they'll still be virgins."

"What are you saying?" Bernardo asked, looking down at Homolka's head. She stopped to look up at him.

"I'm saying I think you should fuck them and take their virginity. Break their hymens with Snuffles. They're all our children, and I think you should make them ours even more."

"You're right," Bernardo said. "You're absolutely right. That's a good idea. When did you come up with it?"

"Just now," she replied. She resumed the oral sex for a while longer, then stopped and told Bernardo she had a surprise for him. She walked past the camera to her bedroom, beside the rec room, came back with a paper bag a few minutes later, and sat down beside Bernardo. Inside the bag was a brassiere and a pair of panties.

"It's Tammy's," she said, handing him the bra. He smelled it while she began stroking his penis with the underwear, before resuming the fellatio.

its ABSURD that Karla got 12 years in prison as a serial rapist and murderer

But here is a timeline of the murders, with details of what happened to the girls ( CHILD HARM WARNING ):

-- As an adult, Karla would confess to throwing her friend's pet hamster out of a two story window and laughing about it as her friend cried. When she was 17, she went to a pet convention and met the man who would be her husband, Paul Bernardo. Paul was 23 years old and a college student.

-- In December of 1989, Paul and Karla took a romantic vacation to Niagara Falls. It was there that Paul proposed to Karla and she said, "Yes". Everybody was so excited for the couple and Karla's family were thrilled to be getting Paul as a son in law. Just as the couple started planning their Spring wedding, the police released a sketch of a man that was said to be "The Scarborough Rapist".

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/nw8gb6q2.jpg

Many of Paul's friends began to call the police station and tell them that the drawing looked just like Paul. The police found him and brought him in for questioning and took a sample of his DNA. That DNA sat on a shelf for months due to the fact that police had many other samples to go through as well. Paul and Karla moved into Karla's family's house. That was when the rapes in Scarborough suddenly stopped. None of Karla's family thought Paul was responsible for any of the crimes committed. They all thought he was so great and perfect and couldn't even imagine him being a rapist. They all put him on a pedestal, especially Karla's 15 year old sister, Tammy. She looked up to him like the big brother she always wanted.

-- At this point, Paul had never confessed what he had done in Scarborough to Karla. She was completely unaware. What she did notice though, was that he had taken a particular liking for Tammy. Karla said he would often give her a lot of special attention and on several occasions had even made her pretend to be her sister during sex. He eventually told Karla that he wanted to actually have sex with Tammy. Karla said that she just wanted to make Paul happy because she loved him and didn't want him to leave her so she agreed to let him have sex with her 15 year old sister. It would be her Christmas present to her soon to be husband.

-- On December 23, 1990, after the family had gone to sleep, Karla made Tammy an alcoholic drink that had been laced with a drug called Halcion. Karla said that she didn't think the pills were enough to keep her asleep so she also used a bottle of Halothane from the clinic she was working at. She used it to sedate her sister while Paul raped her. When Paul was done, he got off of Tammy and told Karla it was her turn. She obliged. They filmed everything, taking turns holding the camera.

-- During the rape, Tammy, still unconscious began to throw up. She choked on her own vomit which ultimately led to her death. Karla and Paul cleaned up the crime scene and covered up the assault before calling 911. The couple told paramedics they had found her drunk and tried to revive her but it hadn't worked. She was taken to the hospital and later pronounced dead. One of the doctors noticed a burn on her mouth- where Karla had held the rag that was soaked in Halothane- Karla and Paul said it was just rug burn from where they had pulled her across the carpet when they found her. No further questions were asked and the doctors concluded that Tammy had died from natural causes.

-- On February 1, 1991, Paul and Karla moved out of the family home into their own house in Port Dalhousie. When they moved, it was said that Paul's abuse really turned up. He told her that he was, in fact, The Scarborough Rapist- although he said he was just joking. At this point, Karla said that she wanted to leave him because he was not only verbally abusing her, but physically as well. He replied that if she ever did that, he would go to the police and tell them what she had done to Tammy. So Karla stayed.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/bcqkgcm.jpg

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/bo2ofaqs.jpg

-- Two weeks before their wedding, Paul surprised Karla with a "wedding gift". Paul had brought Karla a 14 year old girl named Leslie Mahaffy. The couple held the girl in their home where they recorded each other attacking and raping her repeatedly for at least 24 hours before strangling her and dismembering her body. They put different body parts of her body into concrete blocks and dropped those blocks into Lake Gibson.

-- On June 29, 1991, Paul and Karla were married. Paul wrote the couples vows and made sure that they included the terms "Man and wife" over "husband and wife" because Paul wanted to "establish dominance over Karla". He also chose to add that Karla would "Love, Honor, and Obey" him. The same day, fisherman at Lake Gibson came across the concrete blocks that contained the arms, legs, feet, and head of Leslie Mahaffy. The next day, another fisherman found her torso. Karla and Paul took their honeymoon in Hawaii while the police began the murder investigation

-- Over the next year, Karla invited many young girls over to their house where they were drugged and raped repeatedly. These girls all survived the attacks, and had no memory of them. A lot of them were also recorded and held onto by the couple.

-- On April 16, 1992, Paul and Karla came across 15 year old Kristen French. The couple pulled into a church parking lot where Karla pretended they were lost and asked the girl for directions. They then kidnapped the girl and took her back to their house. Her parents reported her missing right away and many witnesses came forward saying that they had seen two people in a cream-colored Camaro pull her into their car and drive away. Her shoe was found at the church, as well as a piece of the map that Karla had, and a lock of brown hair. So cops began quickly looking for this "cream colored Camaro". The problem was that the couple drove a gold Nissan.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/3a5bjzgc.jpg

-- Paul and Karla kept Kristen for several days, raping and torturing her while recording the events. They strangled her and disposed of her body. On April 30, 1992, her body was found in a ditch. Her face had been beaten and her head had been shaved.

-- On January 6, 1993, Karla was admitted to the hospital after Paul beat her with a flash light. He was arrested for assault but got out on bail. Karla never went back to their house. Finally, Paul's DNA was looked at and found to be positively identified as a match for the Scarborough rapist. Now police were finally adding up all the clues to Paul's time frame and were beginning to connect the other murders and assaults to those in St. Catherine's. They reached out to Karla first and she ended up breaking down and telling her parents about most of what she had done. She didn't admit to Tammy's murder at this point though. Her family advised her to get a lawyer.

-- At first, Karla was uncooperative with the police but after talking to her lawyer, she finally agreed to testify against Paul, but only if she was granted immunity from prosecution. The attorney general denied her that but said the would consider a reduced sentence for her involvement. Karla began to spill her guts. She blamed everything on Paul and played the victim role. She said she was forced to be involved and that she was disgusted by the whole situation. She talked about how Paul had forced her and threatened her that if she ever told, he would kill her too.

-- Upon searching their home, police found a list of victims of the Scarborough rapes, books about deviant sexual acts, a hunting knife, video tapes of Kayla and Paul raping and torturing two unidentified girls, and handcuffs. It's said that Karla was most definitely a willing participant in the acts.

-- On July 6, 1993, Karla was convicted after pleading to two counts of manslaughter for the deaths of Leslie and Kristen. She was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Police didn't know at the time that the initial search of the home had not yet uncovered the biggest piece of evidence- 6 video tapes. Those tapes weren't turned over to authorities until September 22, 1994. Those tapes contained in graphic detail the rape of Karla's sister, Tammy. they also contained the torture and rapes of Leslie and Kristen as well as a tape the couple had titled, "The Fireside Chat".

-- The Fireside Chat was a video shot inside of Karla's family's home. It started out in the basement and eventually moved into Tammy's bedroom. While in the basement, Karla tells Paul that she liked watching him rape her sister. She goes on to say she wants to leave a rose at her grave. When they move into Tammy's bedroom, Karla dresses up in Tammy's clothes and begins to act like her sister. The couple then proceeded to have sex on her bed.

-- The videos clearly show that Karla was not scared or forced. The news of these tapes really upset the community and they accused the court of "making a deal with the devil", though the court was obliged to stand by her 10 year sentence. The Ontario court ordered that the video tapes be destroyed. At the time of her sentence, the court didn't know about Karla's involvement in Tammy's death. It was only in March of 1993 that Karla would write a letter to her parents confessing her involvement. Karla was only supposed to serve 10 years, the court added 2 years on for Tammy's death. She was officially sentenced to a 12 year term on July 6, 1993.

-- On July 20, 1993, Tammy's body was exhumed. A wedding invitation, some notes, and a photo of Karla and Paul were found inside of her casket. The family asked for those items to be removed before Tammy's reinterment.

-- The contents of the video tapes should have led to a conviction of murder for Karla, some speculate she even knew where the tapes were hidden. Her facade of being a victim were quickly deteriorating. The public was outraged and Paul himself admitted to every rape, but said Karla was the one to actually commit the murder. In December 2001, it was decided that the tapes could not possibly be used for any future hearings and they were in fact destroyed. The tapes of Karla watching and commenting on the tapes was sealed and remains so to this day.

-- While in prison, Karla began to take correspondence courses in sociology through Queen's University. She was supposed to pay all of the fees herself, but admitted to receiving some financial help. She graduated with a Bachelor's degree in psychology. She was moved from Kingston's Prison for Women to Joliette Institution. Joliette is a medium security prison that critics have called "Club Fed". Karla eventually put in a application to transfer to a halfway house but was denied. She then sued the government.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/h0nv5lt1.jpg

-- She began a romantic and sexual affair with Lynda Véronneau. Lynda, who identified as a man and planned to have a sex change operation upon release was serving time for armed robberies. Lynda had reoffended to be sent back to prison with Karla. He said that Karla liked to be tied up and enjoyed playing victim/rapist role play games. This raised a lot of eyebrows as Karla's release date drew near.

-- Karla lived as much of a luxurious life as possible in prison. She was eventually transferred to a maximum security prison in Quebec where she began another sexual relationship with a convicted murderer named Jean-Paul Gerbet. It was said that they would go up to a fence and strip each other through it and then proceed to touch each other and exchange underwear. During this time, she still continued a long distance relationship with Lynda, who had spent at least $3,000.00 on her at Victoria's Secret. On December 6, 2001, six days before Karla dumped Lynda, she was asked why she continued two separate relationships. Karla replied with, "I don't let go right now because I want my clothes and my computer."

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/h36axz95.png

-- Karla was released after serving her full 12 year sentence under multiple conditions. The public and parents of victims were outraged because they felt that she had gotten nothing but a slap on the wrist and that she still posed a threat to society. A former friend of Karla's was quoted as saying she believes her actions were that of a psycho path, not an abused, controlled woman.

-- On November 30, 2005, the Superior Court Judge of Quebec, James Brunton lifted all of the restrictions that had been placed on Karla. He said there wasn't enough evidence against her to justify them. Ontario begged the court to take take it to the Supreme Court, but it was denied. Karla tried to have her name changed to Emily Chiara Tremblay, it was denied. In 2007, she had her first child, a baby boy. Several nurses refused to tend to her during labor and delivery. Children's Aid said that regardless of her past, they would not automatically judge her.

-- She eventually moved out of Canada so that her one year old son could lead a more normal life and later had two more children. She eventually married her lawyer's brother, Thierry Bordalais. It's said that Karla lived a pretty normal life with her kids up until 2016. Parents began to voice a lot of concern when they found out exactly who was volunteering at the elementary school. Parents wanted her out and away from their kids. the school board said there was no rule against her being there and Karla began to get angry with reporters for trying to speak with her and take her photo.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/6tw44gb3.jpg

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/9h7u4by2.jpg

-- As of January 2020, it was said that she lived in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield alone. Her husband and children were not living with her.


I really am confused by the whole justice system. We live in a world where people get longer terms for stealing than Karla Homolka got for raping and murdering at least 3 children, including her own sister. These crimes are horrible and unforgiveable. Paul is rotting away in a jail cell the size of a closet and she is free to do pretty much whatever she likes. She lived a nice life in prison. Has had multiple sexual partners, gifts, money, scholastic opportunities. It just doesn't make sense.

When someone is released, it's usually under the impression that they aren't liable to commit any more crime. That being said, everyone involved with the case thinks she will in fact kill again. The tapes left Paul's lawyer in shock saying things like "This wasn't a lady who was subjugated. She was happy, compliant, suggestive, and willing. Nothing on the tapes struck me that she was being dominated or coerced." The court even ruled that she was too big of a risk to re-offend and was denied early release... yet she still was able to volunteer with children after her release? She hasn't even been added to a sex offender list, after at least 4 confirmed rapes against children.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/ae78ubaw.png

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/n9fiuvbw.png

-- Early Life:

  • From 1967 to 1969, he attended the Kansas City Art Institute. During this period, he faced legal trouble, receiving a suspended sentence for selling amphetamines. Although he was later apprehended for possessing LSD and marijuana, the charges were ultimately dropped due to insufficient evidence. In 1969, he acquired the residence at 4315 Charlotte, which would later become the site of the incidents. Alongside his culinary pursuits, he eventually established Bob's Bazaar Bizarre.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/9tp6621r.png

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/de9hzsyd.png

-- Employment:

  • Berdella owned and operated a novelty shop in the Westport Flea Market/Bar & Grill in Kansas City, Missouri. He named his booth "Bob's Bazaar Bizarre" and catered to occult-type tastes.

-- Crimes:

  • On April 4th, 1988, Berdella was apprehended after a victim, whom he had subjected to a week of torment, bravely leapt naked from the second floor of his residence to escape. By then, he had already abducted and subjected at least six young men to unspeakable horrors, leading the Kansas City Police Department to suspect his involvement in two additional disappearances. Berdella meticulously documented his sadistic acts in torture logs and amassed a significant collection of Polaroid photographs depicting his victims. The Kansas City Police Department managed to recover extensive volumes of these pictures, which remain in their possession.

--

  • Berdella bizarrely claimed he was attempting to "assist" some of his victims by administering antibiotics after subjecting them to torture. He even attempted to gouge out one victim's eye, solely driven by a macabre curiosity. Shockingly, he interred one victim's skull in his backyard and disposed of the dismembered remains with the regular trash collection. Regrettably, the bodies were never located and remained in the landfill.

--

  • A few months prior to his apprehension, Berdella was offered a ride home from a bar by individuals who recognized he was too inebriated to drive. During the journey, Berdella allegedly recounted tales of the young men he had abducted and tormented in the preceding months. At the time, this disclosure wasn't taken seriously, given his severely impaired state due to intoxication.

--

  • Berdella asserted that the film adaptation of John Fowles' novel "The Collector," wherein the protagonist abducts and confines a young woman, served as his inspiration during his adolescence.

-- Death:

Berdella died of a heart attack in 1992 after writing letters to a minister claiming the prison officials were not giving him his heart medication. His death was never investigated.

First Victim ; Jerry Howell:

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/vuhnwk5y.png

There are no images of him dead , or suffering.

Description:

On July 5, 1984, at the age of 19, Berdella is believed to have claimed his first victim, Jerry Howell. Berdella had initially promised to drive Howell to a dancing contest in Merriam. According to Berdella's account, he supplied Howell with alcohol, diazepam, and acepromazine both in his car and at his residence until Howell lost consciousness. He then administered a potent tranquilizer and secured Howell to his bed.

Howell remained confined to Berdella's bed for approximately 28 hours. During this harrowing captivity, Berdella subjected Howell to a cycle of drugging, torment, sexual assault, and the use of foreign objects, persistently disregarding Howell's inquiries about the reasons for his brutal treatment and his pleas for release. According to Berdella, Jerry met his end either through asphyxiation from his own vomit or due to the combined effects of the gag and medications, rendering it impossible for him to breathe.

Subsequently, Berdella claimed to have made a brief attempt at cardiopulmonary resuscitation after Howell's passing, before relocating the body to the basement. There, he suspended Howell's remains above a large cooking pot and made incisions to his inner elbows and jugular vein, allowing the blood to drain overnight. The following day, he dismembered Howell's body with the use of a chainsaw and boning knives, then wrapped the sections in newspaper and placed them in trash bags. These bags were then deposited into larger ones for disposal by a waste disposal crew at a landfill site.

When questioned by authorities investigating Howell's disappearance, Berdella maintained that he had indeed taken Howell to Merriam as promised, asserting that they had parted ways near Howell's intended destination and he hadn't seen him since.

As with all of Berdella's subsequent murders, he meticulously recorded each instance of sexual and physical torture inflicted upon his victim in a detailed log. Berdella recollected that, like his later victims, Howell had repeatedly implored him to cease the abuse and torment. However, Berdella responded by either ignoring these pleas, mocking his victim, or issuing threats. He insisted to investigators that his actions were not driven by personal gratification but rather by what he termed his "physical and mental satisfaction."

Second victim ; Robert Sheldon:

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/9eqmlifv.png

Robert Sheldon after being drugged into unconsciousness by Berdella, April 1985.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/fnobl8vn.jpg

Description:

On April 10, 1985, Robert Sheldon, a 20-year-old former lodger passing through, approached Berdella seeking temporary shelter. Although Sheldon paid rent punctually, Berdella viewed him as an inconvenience. Despite lacking any physical attraction to Sheldon, Berdella drugged and imprisoned him on April 12, after finding him in an intoxicated state upon returning from work. Berdella maintained that he harbored no deep-seated malice towards Sheldon, but rather saw him as an outlet for his pent-up anger and frustration towards others.

Over the course of three days, Sheldon was subjected to a series of tortures including the application of drain cleaner to his left eye, the insertion of needles under his fingertips, the binding of his wrists with piano wire aimed at causing permanent nerve damage, and the filling of his ears with caulking to impair his hearing.

On April 15, three days into Sheldon's captivity, a workman arrived for scheduled roof repairs, prompting Berdella to end Sheldon's life by suffocating him with a sack and tightening it with a rope. Later, Berdella dissected Sheldon's body in the third-floor bathroom.

--

Third Victim ; Mark Wallace:

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/g2poacj8.png

James Ferris, bound, gagged and injected, September 1985.

Description:

In June, Berdella encountered Mark Wallace, whom he vaguely knew from previous yard work assistance. Wallace sought refuge in Berdella's tool shed during a severe thunderstorm. As with Sheldon, Berdella invited him inside. Observing Wallace's heightened distress and despondency, Berdella offered to administer chlorpromazine, explaining it would help him "calm down and relax." Wallace agreed, and 30 minutes later, Berdella decided to hold him captive.

Wallace was taken to the second-floor bedroom, enduring nearly a day of captivity and torture, including the use of alligator clips on his nipples to administer electric shocks whenever he showed signs of losing consciousness. According to Berdella, approximately an hour after "experimenting" with hypodermic needles by inserting them into various muscles on Wallace's back, Mark Wallace succumbed to a combination of "the drugs, the gag, and the lack of oxygen." Berdella recorded his time of death as 7:00 p.m. on June 23.

--

Fourth Victim ; James Ferris (This is where it starts to get interesting :marseywink: ):

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/1pl4nhnj.png

James Ferris, in a portrait taken just months before his death.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/ukxymzgl.png

James Ferris, bound, gagged and injected, September 1985

Description:

On September 26, 1985, Berdella received a call from an acquaintance named James Ferris, who requested a short-term stay at Berdella's residence. Agreeing, Berdella had ulterior motives of abducting Ferris, arranging to meet him at a bar later that evening. Despite the severity of his actions towards his first three victims, Berdella asserted that Ferris was the first individual he deliberately subjected to torture. He also disclosed to investigators that during the captivity of his final three victims, there were moments when he refrained from recording further details in his abuse log, assuming the victim might not "endure much longer."

After bringing Ferris home, Berdella drugged him with crushed tranquilizers hidden in a meal, then bound him to the bed, subjecting him to nearly continuous torture for around 27 hours. The torment included the repeated application of 7,700-volt electrical shocks to the shoulders and testicles, lasting up to five minutes each time, as well as acupuncture using hypodermic needles on the neck and genital area. Ferris gradually descended into delirium, yet Berdella persisted in his physical and sexual assaults. In his log, Berdella eventually noted that Ferris was "Unable to sit up for more than 10–15 seconds." The subsequent entry recorded "Very delayed breathing," concluding with Berdella's grim note that Ferris had passed away, using a term from his previous career as a chef: "86," which Berdella later explained meant anything from 'Throw it out' to 'Stop the project'.

Fifth Victim ; Todd Stoops:

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/ef15r8j2.png

Todd Stoops after two weeks as a hostage, June 1986. His appearance had changed so dramatically police did not recognize Stoops from Berdella's earlier photos of him.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/511xnet.png

Stoops receiving a 7,700-volt jolt of electricity from Berdella.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/te5ioo.jpg

Description:

Todd Stoops was a 23-year-old individual struggling with drug addiction and occasionally engaged in sex work. He, along with his wife, had briefly stayed at Berdella's house twice in 1984. After their second departure from Berdella's residence, Stoops was not encountered again until a serendipitous meeting at Kansas City's Liberty Memorial Park on June 17, 1986. Berdella extended an invitation to his home, offering lunch and an additional proposition of sex, as Stoops mentioned he needed $13 for drugs (equivalent to about $35 as of 2023).

Berdella later emphasized to investigators that he had a strong physical attraction to Stoops, and this victim was kept captive for a period of two weeks before his demise. Berdella systematically heightened Stoops' terror, aiming to mold him into a compliant and incapacitated sexual captive. He resorted to administering electrical shocks through Stoops' closed eyes in an attempt to blind him, and introduced drain cleaner into his larynx in a futile effort to stifle his screams.

In the second week of his captivity, Stoops, longing for a soft drink and sandwich, was met with a refusal from Berdella, prompting him to break into tears. On June 27, Berdella inflicted severe internal damage on Stoops by rupturing his anal wall with his fist, resulting in bleeding and discharge. As Stoops' captivity neared its end, Berdella attempted to provide him with ice cream and soup, though Stoops found it impossible to keep anything down. By the final day of his confinement, Stoops had become so feeble that Berdella later recounted he could no longer "breathe in a sitting position." On July 1, 1986, Stoops passed away; a forensic pathologist later attested that the ruptured anal wall led to septic shock, ultimately proving fatal.

--

Sixth Victim ; Larry Pearson:

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/dobolih.jpg

Larry Pearson, shortly after being captured by Berdella in June 1987, handcuffed, gagged with piano wire and injected with a hypodermic needle

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/xtwrkye2.jpg

Pearson some time later, his face battered and his right hand broken.

Description:

In the spring of 1987, Berdella struck up a casual friendship with Larry Wayne Pearson, a 20-year-old. Their acquaintance began when Pearson visited Berdella's shop and shared an early fascination with witchcraft and wizardry from his childhood. Pearson then temporarily stayed with Berdella, contributing by performing household chores as a form of rent payment. Berdella claimed he initially had no intention of taking Pearson captive. However, the plan to do so began to form on June 23, about two weeks after Berdella bailed Pearson out of jail and noticed Pearson's lack of interest in finding employment in the weeks leading up to his captivity.

On the afternoon of June 23, Berdella and Pearson watched the movie Creepshow 2 together before having lunch. As they drove around Kansas, Pearson playfully mentioned his past involvement in robbing gay men in Wichita. This revelation solidified Berdella's decision to hold Pearson captive. That evening, Berdella ensured Pearson became intoxicated, then injected him with chlorpromazine and moved him to the basement. There, he secured Pearson's hands above his head, attaching the rope to a brick column, and administered drain cleaner to Pearson's larynx. Berdella also brought an electrical transformer to the basement.

According to Berdella, Pearson was the most cooperative of his six victims. By the fifth day of captivity, after enduring torture including repeated electrical shocks and the breaking of several hand bones to establish submission, Berdella concluded that Pearson had earned his trust in continuing to comply with the sexual and physical abuse. As a form of reward, Pearson was moved to the second floor, with Berdella assuring him that if he remained cooperative, he would not endure as much pain as he had in the basement. In the latter part of his six-week captivity, Pearson trained himself to sleep without moving, so as not to provoke Berdella and risk further torture or being returned to the basement.

After six weeks, Pearson bit deeply into Berdella's penis, then screamed that he couldn't endure the ongoing mistreatment. In response, Berdella first rendered Pearson unconscious by striking him with a tree limb, then suffocated him using a bag and ligature. Berdella then drove to the hospital for treatment of his wound. Pearson's body was later dismembered in the basement, and initially, his head was stored in a plastic bag in Berdella's freezer before being buried in the backyard.

Final "Victim" (Got away) ; Christopher Bryson:

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/278bbb9i.png

Chris Bryson in captivity, as photographed by Berdella, April 1988.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/cdaj8ts4.png

Chris , sometime today.

Description:

At 1:00 a.m. on March 29, 1988, Berdella abducted his final victim, Christopher Bryson, a 22-year-old male prostitute, enticing him to his residence with the promise of payment for sexual services. Inside Berdella's home, Bryson was struck unconscious with an iron bar and then secured to Berdella's bed. There, he endured similar methods of abuse and torture as Berdella's previous victims. However, in Bryson's case, Berdella repeatedly swabbed his eyes with ammonia, emphasizing to him: "The only things you need to think about are you, me, and this house."

After a few days, Berdella disclosed to Bryson that he had developed a level of "trust" in his captive. He explained that while he was open to discussing certain aspects of the abuse and torture Bryson was enduring, there would be no negotiations concerning the sexual abuse. Berdella concluded this conversation with a stern admonition: "I've gone this far with other people before, and they're no longer here because of mistakes they made."

Escape:

By the third day of his captivity, Bryson had managed to gain enough trust from Berdella to negotiate a daily routine where his hands were bound in front of him after the sexual abuse, rather than being tied above his head, under the pretense that it was affecting the circulation in his arms. He also persuaded Berdella to leave a television on in the room, with the remote control within his reach, for when Berdella was absent. Bryson admitted to investigators that he constantly strategized about escaping. On the subsequent day, he successfully freed himself from his restraints by using a book of matches Berdella had inadvertently left within his reach while he was away at work.

Cloaked only in a dog collar, Bryson fled from the house by leaping from a second-floor window, resulting in a broken foot. He sprinted towards a meter reader on the opposite side of the street, urgently imploring him to contact the police. The meter reader guided Bryson to the nearest residence, where the occupants promptly summoned the authorities. Within minutes, the police arrived on the scene.

Upon being questioned by four officers, Bryson initially claimed he had been abducted by Berdella while hitchhiking. He stated that he had been forcibly taken, subjected to rape and torture for four days, and managed to escape by leaping from a second-floor window of the property. Brydella had kept him restrained to a bed on the second floor, repeatedly sodomizing him, administering drugs, and injecting his throat with drain cleaner to impair his ability to speak loudly. As Bryson recounted his ordeal, the officers observed his red, swollen eyes, along with visible scars and welts covering his entire body. Two officers were tasked with discreetly monitoring the property, while Bryson was escorted to the Menorah Medical Center for treatment, accompanied by a third officer. Meanwhile, the fourth officer radioed the Kansas City Police Department (KCPD) to request an official search warrant for the property.

--

Confessions done by The Kansas City Butcher:


Between December 13 and 15, 1988, after changing his plea and seeking an agreement not to pursue the death penalty, Berdella provided detailed testimony to prosecutors. He revealed that the film "The Collector," which he first saw in 1965, had a profound impact on him. Following his initial feelings of shock and disgust after his first killing, the movie resurfaced in his memory and became a driving psychological force behind his actions in subsequent murders. Berdella explained to investigators that once he chose to hold his victims captive, he no longer saw them as people.

In his confession, Berdella clarified that the abbreviated entries in his torture logs were shorthand descriptions of the abusive methods he inflicted, or they detailed his victims' reactions and his initial observations upon entering the room. For example, "CP" referred to the chlorpromazine he used for restraining, while "DC" denoted swabbing eyes with drain cleaner or injecting it into vocal cords.

Entries like "EK" or "EKG" signified the use of electrical shocks, while others specified the location of the abuse. For instance, in relation to victim James Ferris, Berdella noted he injected ketamine into his neck and shoulder. Berdella also confessed to burying the victims' heads in his backyard and explained the process of retrieving and cleaning the first skull. He denied any sinister intent behind these actions.

Berdella was able to name all of his victims. While one victim (Mark Wallace) was seized by opportunity, the others were captured after failed attempts to redirect their lifestyles, leading to frustration. He provided graphic details of the abuse and torture inflicted on each victim and recorded it in his logs. He stated that he tried to prevent malnutrition or infection by occasionally administering antibiotics or nutrients intravenously as the abuse escalated.

The methods of torture included high-voltage shocks, starvation, application of alkali-based detergents to throats, vocal cords, or eyes, and bludgeoning hands to render them unusable. Berdella admitted that the level of abuse increased with each successive victim, and he saw the Polaroid images he took of his victims as a "trophy or record of the event."

Despite extensive searches, the remains of all six victims were never recovered. They had been dismembered, placed in trash bags, and taken to unknown landfill sites.


Aftermath:

In November 1988, a series of auctions were conducted to sell off the extensive collection of artifacts and furniture seized from Berdella's residence and business. The proceeds from these auctions were earmarked to cover his escalating legal expenses during the ongoing legal proceedings. The auctions garnered significant national attention, with telephone bids pouring in from various parts of the United States. While some items fetched prices below expectations, the first day's auction alone raised over $60,000 for this purpose (equivalent to $151,000 in 2023).

In December 1988, a local entrepreneur acquired Berdella's house for an undisclosed amount. Subsequently, the property was demolished.

Victims , again... So no one ever forgets:


At the time of Berdella's apprehension, he had abducted, tortured, and murdered a minimum of six young men (initial suspicions arose regarding two other disappearances). Despite the presence of over twenty different men in the 334 Polaroid images and thirty-four snapshot prints found at 4315 Charlotte Street following his arrest, Berdella insisted that the six identified victims, whom he had confessed to killing, were the only ones he had murdered.

--Jerry Howell, 19, July 5, 1984: An acquaintance of Berdella who succumbed to asphyxiation after nearly 28 hours of captivity, involving repeated sexual assaults. Howell had known Berdella since 1979.

--Robert Sheldon, 20, April 12, 1985: Sheldon had temporarily stayed with Berdella on April 10, two days before Berdella decided to hold him captive on April 12. He was fatally suffocated on April 15. Initially, his head was interred in Berdella's garden, but later retrieved and stored in Berdella's bedroom closet.

--Mark Wallace, 27, June 22, 1985: Discovered accidentally seeking shelter from a thunderstorm in Berdella's tool shed. Wallace passed away due to a combination of oxygen deprivation and administered drugs at 7 p.m. on June 23.

--James Ferris, 25, September 26, 1985: The first victim whom Berdella admitted to intentionally torturing before his demise. Berdella recorded Ferris becoming delirious from the exhibited torture and administered medication. One of the final entries in his capture log stated, "unable to sit up more than 10-15 seconds." His death was noted in Berdella's log as "Stop the project."

--Todd Stoops, 23, June 17, 1986: Abducted due to Berdella's sexual frustration with him. The torture leading to his death included electric shocks -via a spatula placed over his eyelid in an unsuccessful attempt to blind him. Stoops passed away from a combination of blood loss and infection on July 1.

--Larry Wayne Pearson, 20, June 23, 1987: Detained until August 5. Pearson was fatally suffocated after six weeks of captivity, which included the use of a piano wire tied around his wrists to cause nerve damage. His head was preserved and buried in Berdella's garden.

--

Things to note:


  • During his initial year at the KCAI, Berdella earned a reputation as an attentive and gifted student. However, as he entered his second year, he adopted an outspoken anti-authoritarian stance. He formed connections with a group of students who provided him with drugs, which he then sold to fellow students for a profit. Alongside this, he started to regularly abuse alcohol. Additionally, he engaged in acts of animal cruelty on at least two occasions. In one instance, he decapitated a duck in front of his peers, and in the other, he conducted experiments involving sedatives and tranquilizers on a dog.

--

  • At the age of 19, Berdella was arrested for attempting to sell methamphetamine to an undercover officer; he was released after posting a $3,000 bond (equivalent to about $25,600 as of 2023). He would later plead guilty to the offense and was handed a five-year suspended sentence. One month after this first arrest, Berdella and two other students were arrested for possession of marijuana and LSD in Johnson County. On this occasion, Berdella could not post bond, and he spent five days in jail; the charges against him and one of the other students would be dropped due to a lack of evidence.

--

  • Berdella started frequenting gay bars in Akron in 1967, but it wasn't until several years after he moved to Kansas City that he formed any substantial relationships.

--

  • Berdella held a brief relationship with a bisexual Vietnam veteran in 1982 who had a severe emotional disorder. The relationship was one of the few serious ones Berdella engaged in when living in Kansas City

--

  • Only Berdella referred to James Ferris by his given first name, Walter

--

  • In his subsequent confessions to investigators, Berdella stated he had dismembered the bodies of Sheldon, Wallace, Ferris, and Stoops in the bathtub in his third floor bathroom, whereas the bodies of Howell and Pearson had been dismembered in his basement.

--

  • This more detailed questioning occurred after Bryson had been released from the Menorah Medical Center, after he had undergone several days of treatment for his injuries.

--

  • Shortly after his release from hospital and further questioning by the KCPD, Christopher Bryson lapsed into cocaine abuse. With the state's assistance, he would complete a drug rehabilitation program. Bryson would also testify in person at an initial, pretrial hearing on June 9

--

  • Investigators had until 07:30 on April 3 to compile sufficient evidence to formulate either an arrest warrant, or a statement of probable cause to justify Berdella's continued incarceration. To persuade a judge to sign the statement of probable cause justifying the continued search of Berdella's house and his detainment, police had Bryson – still hospitalized – identify Berdella as his captor from a photographic array, while also listing the statutory crimes committed and provable in a courtroom, via listing the findings thus far at his house. Bail was denied for Berdella at this stage, and the search of his property continued under the supervision of a criminologist from the FBI's Kansas City office

--

  • When formal murder by dismemberment charges were filed against Berdella, his bail sum was increased to $750,000 (the equivalent of approximately $1,887,400 as of 2023)

--

  • Aside from Pearson's severed head and the striations upon his vertebrae, the accompanying evidence, compiled to bring this charge, included some 60 Polaroid photos of Pearson; the logs Berdella had kept of his captivity of the subject (and which the handwriting was proven to be Berdella's); chemical tests upon Pearson's hair which indicated the subject may have received fatal dosages of various tranquilizers; the injury Pearson was known to have inflicted upon Berdella on August 5, 1987; and the fact Berdella had paid Pearson's bond in June 1987.

--

  • Berdella entered this plea of guilty at his arraignment hearing (in the voluntary company of his public defender) due to the fact that, at this hearing, unless the state has filed notice of intent to seek the death penalty at an arraignment hearing in which first-degree murder charges were filed, the automatic sentence to be filed upon receipt of a guilty plea is life imprisonment without parole

--

  • Berdella's identification of the two human heads upon his property had by this stage been corroborated by forensic anthropologists

Above, you see a part of the last photo of the victim. Her father took it right before she left to celebrate her first New Year's Eve outside home, in a club. In Poland, a moratorium on executions was issued in 1988, and the death penalty was removed from the penal code in 1997. For some people here currently arguing against death penalty in case of wrongful conviction, Tomasz Komenda is a 'poster boy'. [there will be edits]

TL;DR. Story takes place in Lower Silesia (SW Poland). 15 yo Małgorzata Kwiatkowska - I'll later use disminutive - was spending New Year's Eve in the club in the nearby village, with her friend. The next day, 1st of January 1997, parents reported her missing after asking people around; friend didn't know her whereabouts, too. Separately, police received info about an unknown dead girl laying naked on someone's property, near the barn. It was determined that she was raped with a blunt object or e.g. fist - enough to cause internal injuries. There were bite marks on the body. The victim was left alive in the freezing cold (around -16 C, or 3 F), heavily beaten, eventually dying of internal bleeding and, mostly, hypothermia. Police determined that 2 or 3 people participated. Three years later, someone reported that Tomasz Komenda seems like the man on the sketch; police didn't look for that one or two more suspects. Komenda was arrested and charged in April/May 2000, and in 2004 - sentenced for 25 years. He attempted suicide three times, and was harassed both by the other inmates and prison guards. In total, after spending 18 years imprisoned, he was released on parole in March 2018, and acquitted two months later. The gov compensation for the wrongful conviction was the highest ever paid in Poland - 13 million zloty (around €2,9 mln or $3,25 mln). Two men were sentenced in 2021. Apart from the reported DNA tests results, there's either vague or barely any evidence pointing at them. The investigation was messy since the beginning. Many witnesses, of which one is now convicted, were threatened by both the police and unknown people - up to death threats. This isn't really a solved case.

Sections go as follows:

  1. Crime scene video and photos. The body is always blurred or covered, in case of the video - it's not perfectly covered, but you won't see any details of the injuries. Descriptions of the injuries are partially released.

  2. What happened on New Year's Eve? - with maps and aerial view for comparision. Includes descriptions of the injuries, and of the crime scene (these important for you to imagine how the events could go).

  3. How to make a killer on paper. Apart from vague evidence, things not matching in Komenda's testimonies were also overlooked. It doesn't even make sense a made-up story.

  4. Old evidence, old witnesses, new suspects. There are two guys convicted for now. Both claim they're innocent, but talk about it in completely different ways. I also included here a description of the impact that wrongful conviction had on Tomasz, including videos from the acquittal.



⠀CRIME SCENE VIDEO AND PHOTOS :marseyjourno:

Crime scene video is included here without any edits. It was already uploaded with the partially censored body (and the ambient in the background, for these complaining about music in any video). Timestamps:

1;30 - general view for the neighbourhood ends, police officer(s) and one specialist(?) enter the property.

2;10 onwards - cameraman reaches the point, from which the body was visible.

2;35 onwards - Spot 1, a piece of clothing. Filmed from various angles and in close-up.

3;10 - Spot 2, where the body was found. Comment in the backround about the buttons found, and pointing at places where the blouse and (not visible) the cap were found.

3;30 - cameraman is told to record a bloody smudge on the steel bar.

4;10 - I can't hear it well, but probably there's a blouse pointed at Spot 3.

Before 4;30 - camera moves to Spot 5, where a wristwatch was found, and two shoelaces. I can't tell if either of these two is clearly visible, but both were mentioned.

4;45 - now, cameraman is asked to film Spot 5, where are two spots with fresh faeces (it's not stated in the video, but they were victim's one). A bloodstain and a shoelace are mentioned.

5;05 to 5;10 - pointing at the shred of clothing, which the man commenting assumes to be a part of the underwear.

5;30 - finally a good view on the wristwatch.

6;10 - cameraman is asked (and confirms) whether he'd recorded the general view. Officer tells him that he will turn the body now. Most of it is covered, but now you can see some of the injuries on legs.

6;25 to 6;35 - unclear, but there are blood spots mentioned, and that the exact injuries [topic] is left for later. I guess it's about recording them, instead of general view.

6;45 - closeup on legs. The socks will later turn out to be an important detail in one witness' testimony.

7;30 - cameraman stops focusing on things laying on the ground, and the general view for another part of the property (deeper into it) is shown till the end...

...at 8;10. The sound is cut, but in the last part muted here, this guy told the cameraman that there are shreds of a black lace clothing.

It's around 90 MB, if it's not loading for you, try to wait a while or just download to your device!

What you should pay attention to when watching above video, as it will be important later (mostly when describing how the crime scene shows some events' aftermath):

  1. The socks, already mentioned.

  2. Girl's hair being tangled and messed up (it's not visible here, but some stuff was entangled in them).

  3. She is lying on her dress.

  4. Barn's wall, not only the steel bar or these crates.

  5. How wide apart are her body and the pieces of evidence.

Not all crime scene photos are released, at least few were shown in videos or (rarely) separately.

13th. A spot when the wristwatch was found.

⠀BOŻENA H. :marseyunamused:

Here, a few black and white photos from the on-site investigation. Click to enlarge. These photos aren't relating to Małgosia, but to Bożena H., who was sexually assaulted in Jelcz-Laskowice (around 3 km from Miłoszyce) on 11th of August 1996 by two men. The first wanna-be rapist was scared by another guy, who pretended to be helpful and wishing to assist her on a way back, but raped her instead. One of them was possibly the same perpetrator that assaulted Małgosia. Tomasz Komenda was wrongfully convicted also for this crime in December 2004, and acquitted a few years later.

1st and 2nd. A scene near the holiday resort in Jelcz-Laskowice. It shows the spot where a red Fiat 126-P was parked, and - in the second photo - where Bożena H. received blow to the head, then was walked to the side road.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/wkyj63gs.jpg

3rd and 4th. First - the same scene as in Photo 2, with the concrete slabs visible. Second - close-up of this spot, the name of the street from which the photo was taken isn't visible.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/ld2b975i.jpg

5th and 6th. The same scene like in Photo 4, with the first rape scene marked with circle. Then, around 300 m from this spot, there's a second rape scene (it was a second guy, who played her 'rescuer').

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/fqm0vzp2.jpg

7th and 8th. Here, the woman shows the spot when the red Fiat was parked, and where rape attempt took place.

⠀WHAT HAPPENED ON NEW YEAR'S EVE :marseycryinglaptop:

First, general map. 1 - Miłoszyce, 2 - Jelcz Laskowice, 3 - Gajków, 4 - Plac Grunwaldzki (tram and bus station in Wrocław, will be important later in this story), 5 - Piekary.

Property the body was found at is on Kościelna 5 street, and the former 'Alcatraz' club - on Główna 7A street. Here's a sketch of the crime scene, hard to read, though.

Due to the angles, snow and changes over the years, I had problems figuring out what is where in that crime scene video. Also, the sketch of the crime scene is unclear, looks like the barn is drawn as a one building with that right behind it. It's not, you can see it in the video, e.g. around 7;52. You can see there how the other building's wall is aligned, just like in the drone view.

Descriptions of the injuries were often scattered in the sources I've found. One mentioned that the exact description of the injuries spanned over a few pages. I don't know whether it was an overexaggeration. Instead of a wall of text, have the most important parts listed. Keep in mind that it's simplified and the exact medical terms could be different.

  1. There are multiple body parts mentioned, on which there were single scratches or abrasions of the epidermis and bruises (ecchymoses?) - either bloody or not. I.e. face, upper arms, chest, pelvic area, lower back, buttocks, legs (without precizing, apart from right thigh, check point 3).

  2. Scratches or abrasions in the chest area and on right arm, which pattern looked like a bite marks.

  3. On a right thigh, there was a bloody abrasion in a pattern similar to a shoe print. It was specifically described as an assault boot or other heavy ones (like in police or military).

  4. Some pubic hair ripped out, leaving bloody spots.

  5. Rupture of soft tissues between the vagina and rectum. Its extent (like in cm from the either opening) wasn't mentioned. It caused a severe internal bleeding.

  6. Extensive bloody bruisings (ecchymoses) and a rupture of the vaginal mucous membrane. Also, a bruisings of the mucous membrane and wall of the rectum, and a rupture of a rectal mucous membrane.

  7. Injuries were inflicted with a blunt or blunt-edged objects, including ones in the genital area. It could include fingers or a hand (fist).

  8. The victim could have been dragged across the ground, possibly it's when the clothes and shoes were taken off.

  9. Samples were taken from the oral cavity, vagina, and rectum. No samples were taken from under the nails, even though there were clearly signs of struggle, and the victim was probably trying to fight back or defend herself.

Few remarks on the crime scene.

  1. On the victim's face, chest and arms, there were a greyish, earthy stains, and on her cheek and mouth - dried smudge (color not mentioned).

  2. In her hair, there were entangled 'large quantities of' dried plant stalks, sticks, pieces of bark, and a single feathers (probably from the poultry), and pieces of the silver chain.

  3. Black tights were 1,5 m from the body, and partially torn blouse - 2,5 m from the body.

  4. On the back of the barn, around 2,5 m from the back corner, there was an oblong spot on the ground with thinner snow layer, in which were traces of grass / soil substrate and bloody stains.

  5. Around 1 m from the spot mentioned above, closer to the barn, there were faeces. Close to them, a Q&Q analog watch was found, and a shoelace next to it.

  6. Two empty vodka bottles and a black lace hanky were found 'close to the crime scene'.

  7. 1,2 to 1,5 m up on the barn's wall, close to where body was found, hair were found stuck on planks and between them.

  8. Close to the hair found on the barn's wall, there were smudges containing pieces of soil, sand, straw, grass and hair fragments.

  9. Victim's shoes and silver jewelry wasn't found both on the crime scene and on neighbouring properties (including houses and the maintenance rooms).

Józef R. was confused about the body found (below is a photo of the exact spot). He claimed that someone who left it there must have been local, as a stranger wouldn't know about this shortcut. A classic 'but...' - but he was living here since a child, and thought that no criminals or rapists able to do this were living in the area.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/vkx88o01.png

It's not clear for how long Małgosia was dying, and the given values are contradicting. I assume it's expected when they're based on different exams. The widest span mentioned was 1 to 8 hours. However, another source states that the victim could have been saved if medical intervention took place up to 2 or 3 hours after she was left alone. According to the expert witness, the perpetrators were either motivated by sadistic tendencies, or by their sexual incapability. The latter scenario was more common, and, quoting: 'a brutal treatment of the assaulted woman, including the possibility of taking her life, can be - and quote often is - caused by the temporary sexual incapability, usually being a result of the alcohol influence and a stress caused by the given situation'. I haven't seen a mention of how the roles could look like, considering there were at least 2 or 3 assailants.


⠀JUST A WALL OF TEXT ABOUT SOME TESTIMONIES... :marseyschizowall:

The description of the injuries is far easier to write than how Małgosia even left the club, according to the witnesses. Two of them, Krzysztof K. and Andrzej W. (whose credibility is vague) claimed that she was walked out by Irek, who told them he's her brother. She didn't have a brother. It's unclear whether it was 100% the same Irek as later convicted Ireneusz M., assuming it did happen. The other witnesses point out that it was Krzysztof K. who left with her... And you will see later he is both important and not fully reliable witness. Around 0;20 AM, friends of Małgosia (not precized how many of them) had seen her last time. Reportedly, at this time, she was already spending time with Krzysztof K., a local guy, whom she met in the club first time. They'd left outside 3 or 4 times, as Małgosia was feeling nauseous and started vomiting. Iwona, a 'main' friend coming with her, noticed that Małgosia disappeared around 1;00 AM, and started to look for her. Nobody knew where she is, and Iwona left the club after taking the girl's coat from the cloakroom. She was last time seen between 1;00 AM and 1;20 AM, leaving the club without the overcoat, only wearing dress. Reportedly, that's when Krzysztof K. left with her - he claims it was some Irek, claiming to be Małgosia's brother. These two moved towards the building's corner, on the Główna street side. According to Krzysztof K. himself, it was an hour earlier than the others had stated.

Krzysztof K. was arrested three days after the murder. He was considered a suspect, and his testimonies were - putting it shortly - both weirdly accurate (like he had seen the crime himself) and variable. He was beaten on a police station, too. At first, Krzysztof K. admitted to walking Małgosia out from the club, then entering the R. family property with her, undressing the girl and assaulting her. In the meanwhile, she was resisting, calling her mum and screaming to leave her alone; after all, Krzysztof K. reportedly moved her to another spot near the barn. His sketch of the crime scene was weirdly accurate. Then, he changed testimonies to the scenario with some Irek walking her out. And changed them again later. There was reportedly no evidence on-spot, including the DNA tests results (the old ones, though) excluding him. After one of the questionings, he ended up in hospital with brain concussion. The main prosecutor, same one responsible for the murder investigation, refused to start the investigation on the authority abuse. A police officer had just hit 16 yo Krzysztof K. on the back of the head 'in the heat of the moment', and the harm to society wasn't great enough to care.

Another photo than in the thumbnail, to break this wall of text :marseywink:

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/bkqu6itp.png

Around 1;35 AM (sometimes an earlier time is given), one of the R. family's neighbours' daughters heard girl screaming Mum, mum! (assumed by the prosecution to be Małgosia). It was Agnieszka N., the same daughter, who after midnight left for a while with her boyfriend. They drove to Jelcz-Laskowice, to visit friends and wish them a happy New Year. Shortly after their departure, her sister Krystyna N. had seen two guys, between whom was walking a girl around 16-17 yo, weirdly lightly clothed as for the freezing cold. She specifically mentioned that these were two men and a girl looking down. Krystyna N. had in general given weirdly detailed description. Agnieszka N., who was in the car (so much closer to these group), claimed that she wasn't even sure how many people were there, and couldn't tell their gender. This group was walking along the Ogrodowa street. According to Krystyna N., looking through the window 7 to 10 m from these people, one guy was about the girl's height. The second one was slightly taller and had a bowl cut. Andrzej W. claimed that the man picking Małgosia up as 'her brother' had a bowl cut. I will spare you more details, just know that Andrzej W. claimed it was before midnight (so when people were either watching the fireworks or rushing home to do so) - contrary to the other witnesses - and his testimonies were in general inconsistent. And why was the haircut important, apart from connecting the non-existent brother with one of the guys walking the girl along the Ogrodowa street? Neither of these guys was wearing a cap. On a crime scene, there was a black cap found. If these were the future perpetrators walking with the girl, then - considering it was around -16 C or 3 F outside - it would be odd for them to not wear a cap, if they had one.

Apart from Agnieszka N., there was also unprecized P., who had heard some girl calling for help. Time wasn't given exactly, and the distance from his home to the R. family's property was around 100 m. P. thought that it must had been Józef R. beating at least one daughter, so didn't react. Apart from the N. family, there was also C. family living right next to the property where the murder took place. Surprisingly, no one from this family heard any screams or other sounds of struggle.



⠀HOW TO MAKE A KILLER ON PAPER :marseyretard2:

Tomasz Komenda was born in July 1976. He had a poor health, due to being born prematurely. According to the mother, Teresa Klemańska, it was because of the physical abuse by her ex-husband, Jerzy, whom he left when pregnant. Father-in-law, Mirosław, is described as a man raising Tomasz like his own son. Tomasz has finished special school, receiving primary education. He was working at the car wash, enjoying and often getting tips. There are three brothers: youngest Krzysztof, then Piotr (6 yo when Tomasz was imprisoned) and Gerard (the oldest one).


⠀POLICE SKETCH :marseycrayoneater:

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/sw5ld54x.jpg

In 1999, the authorities were contacted by Dorota P., who claimed that she recognizes the man from the police sketch. There are few versions - some say media, some say newspaper, and other mention that she saw it in Magazyn Kryminalny 997 and contacted the police few days later. This couldn't happen, MK 997 never described this case. I spent a while searching for this episode, which was reportedly aired when she was throwing a party because of her name day. There are four dates to choose from, from the early February to the early September. None of the episodes matching them mention Komenda. Later, I've found out in one source that Dorota indeed made up this story. TV series mentioning this case was Telewizyjne Biuro Śledcze (episode 30, from 1998), there were no graphic details, too. According to Komenda's mother, Dorota P. once threatened her with 'doing something that would make her cry, so she remembers'. She was often leaving her son to babysit, and Komenda's mother complained it's too often. Even though Dorota P. claimed she knew Tomasz, that he had a girlfriend named Małgosia of the similar age (and also living in Jelcz-Laskowice), and that he was sometimes aggressive, she couldn't really know him well. They could at last see each other on the staircase, as Dorota P. was a neighbour of Komenda's grandmother. She claimed years later that she has 'only' pointed at him, and the man from police sketch could be as well his brother or father-in-law. Miłoszyce residents were questioned, but none of them recognized either of these three men - contrary to what Dorota P. said. She suddenly died in June 2018 and didn't manage to testify in a case regarding authority abuse.


Tomasz Komenda was questioned first time on 16th of November 1999, when the police search was conducted in his home, starting from 7;15 AM. On 18th of April 2000, he was already questioned as a suspect - this is sometimes incorrectly mentioned as the first hearing. When Komenda was questioned, he didn't even know there's a town called Jelcz-Laskowice. He admitted to having an intercourse with some randomly met girl, in a wood patch near the club - but there was no wood patch. Few people, including his mother and one woman not called for a witness, claimed that he spent New Year's Eve 1996/1997 in the family home.

So, to sum up what didn't match in Komenda's testimonies (on various times):

  1. Consensual intercourse in a non-existent woodpatch,

  2. Visiting a town that he didn't know existed.

  3. Taking a bus from Plac Grunwaldzki (go back to the cities map) to Gajków on New Year's Eve 1996/1997, when no buses were going on this route.

  4. Timeline that would require time travel. It was impossible for Tomasz to leave home around 2 AM and be back between 6;00 and 6;30 AM, if things went as described (next paragraph).

  5. He 'did' that all in Miłoszyce, while 12 witnesses provided him alibi for that night, which he spent in Wrocław. Somehow they were not convincing. The only guest that saw Komenda home back then and didn't drink alcohol wasn't called as a witness.

  6. He was also sentenced to 4 years for raping Bożena (go back to the first section). He didn't recognize her, and the second rapist (playing her 'rescuer') didn't recognize Tomasz as the first assailant.

About the timeline. In 'his' testimonies, Tomasz 'claimed' he left home around 2 AM, took the bus to Gajków (to visit his friend, Tomasz S.), and arrived around 3 AM. Then this friend told Komenda about a New Year's Eve party in the club in Miłoszyce, and they two walked there for around 30 mins. Here's why this timeline's impossible - it's around 8 km (5 mil) in straight line, and 10-12 km in a walking distance. Two guys finishing 10K in 30 mins - during a winter night and while being drunk - would for sure put them among the elite runners. Around 30 mins (or few mins less, depends on the criteira) are the current world records for 10K. According to the 'official' timeline, Tomasz S. had spent half an hour in the club, and left Tomasz Komenda alone. That would mean he left at unknown time, but after 4;00 AM. Then, Komena would meet some 'Kasia', accompany her till the club closing - it closed around 4;30 AM - and have an intercourse outside on the ground, in a non-existent woodpatch. Then, he 'walked' back to Gajków, and travelled back to Wrocław by the bus, arriving between 6 AM and 6;30 AM.

Why did he change initial testimonies to the above story?

In the record of evidence from 16th of November 1999, I didn't describe the above-mentioned circumstances [as a witness], because I was afraid of the police. I can't explain this, I am simply afraid of the police.

And:

Later, Tomasz Komenda withdrew his testimonies and claimed, that he was never in Miłoszyce and didn't know any Małgorzata K. He claimed that he was forced to say so by [the cops] beating him. He had been mentioning this beatings multiple times, even saying in front of the cameras in 2006, that he was beaten so heavily, that he would even confess to murdering a Pope, if it would make them stop.

It wasn't mentioned in the quoted testimonies, but in the second book mentioned in the sources at the end, the author claims that 'staying till the end' (in the club) meant staying till the 6 AM, maybe 7 AM. I don't know why it's stated so. I think that the author could assume, that by 'staying till the end' Komenda meant 'stayed till the morning'. In the common sense, indeed, winter mornings are rather around 6 or 7 AM, not precizely 4;30 AM, and partying till the morning would mean club closed around given hours.

Not only does this timeline make no sense (and these testimonies, obtained under duress), but also joining them with the testimonies of Tomasz S. Who, by the way, wasn't Komenda's friend, but his employer. He claimed that he didn't meet Komenda that day. Nobody looked for this Kasia, apparently assuming, that the unknown Katarzyna - having a consensual intercourse with one man - must have been Małgorzata - assaulted and left for death by 2 or 3 men. I will skip the rest of the testimonies, sometimes making it better, sometimes worse for Komenda, as together with the screwed up investigation, that's actually a topic for a whole book.

It's also worth mentioning that the Krzysztof K. mentioned some time ago was considered by the specialists to not be a reliable witness, due to the mental state he was in. Authorities didn't have a similar problem with Tomasz Komenda, who had finished special school and has a mild degree of intellectual disability. Both guys were beaten by the cops, too, and in both cases it officially didn't happen. Last part of this section is the other evidence :marseyretardnotes:

  1. DNA was extracted from the hair, stuck inside a black woolen cap found on the crime scene (for reference, Komenda's blood was used). Polymarker tests were conducted. They focus on specific DNA sequences (markers), which are long and poorly differentiated. Even back then, it wasn't a modern method. It shouldn't be used both when analyzing a sample from hair and when it's not sure whether the evidence comes from one person or more. It was analyzed in Wrocław. Three years later, it suddenly turned out that in Jelcz-Laskowice police station, there were more hair kept as an evidence, but sent to Bydgoszcz (not Wrocław) for analyzis. This time, it was mtDNA analyzis, which was pointless, and could only check whether the victim's and witnesses' or suspects' had the same mother. It was pointless, especially considering that this evidence was destroyed, so couldn't be use later for more meaningful testing.

  2. Osmological expertise, using the scent samples obtained from the mentioned woolen cap, checked by two dogs in March 2000. This wasn't recorded, even though videotaping such exams was reportedly already a common practice back then. The method used for sampling wasn't strictly matching the police guidelines. The dog handler was reportedly licensed, but not an expert. It's also unknown in what conditions the cap and samples were kept. Jars containing the scent-soaked swabs were also opened and closed again 'multiple times'.

  3. Bite marks. Shortly saying, the pattern could match Tomasz Komenda or someone else. The latter scenario was overlooked. Among the 'someone else' was also Marcin Ł., a son of local businessman, who was 'unofficially' mentioned by a few witnesses (including the incognito witness), and he will be mentioned in the next section again. Back then, it was excluded that the pattern could belong to Ireneusz M., who is currently convicted for this murder. Why it's not excluding him now, it's not known.

The charges differed from what Tomasz Komenda was sentenced to 15 years for, and what was he lated sentenced to 25 years for. They also differ from what he was told he will be tried for. Have Wikipedia quote first (article about Polish Penal Code):

Three different types of homicide are foreseen by articles 148, 149 and 150 of the Code. Article 148 Sec. 1 describes the penalty for the basic type of the crime. It is penalized by no less than 8 years of imprisonment, 25 years' imprisonment or life imprisonment. Sections 2 and 3 introduce a more strict sentencing in cases of particular cruelty, using firearms or explosives, taking hostages, raping, robbery, multiple victims or relapse. In these cases the minimal imprisonment period rises to 12 years.

Tomasz Komenda was at first for rape with exceptional cruelty and for battery resulting in death. I'm not sure if anything similar exists in US or UK laws. Either battery or aggravated battery applies to the situations where there was no intent to kill or death (AFAIK, please correct in the comments if this is bullshit). In Poland, there's pobicie ze skutkiem śmiertelnym, which is a different crime than homicide (falls under Article 158 - battery).

In October 2001, Tomasz Komenda was told he will be tried for Article 197, Sec.1. In November 2003, he was sentenced in relation to Article 197, Sec. 2. Reportedly, he was told that the exact qualification of his crime may be changed, but no more details. Apart from homicide, he was sentenced for rape - Article 197, Sec. 3, not precized further, but it'd be Sec. 3, Point 1 (together with another person - which, like you already know, police didn't look for). Małgosia was exactly 15 years and (nearly) 2 months old when she died. In Poland, the age of consent is 15 yo, so technically this rape didn't qualify as raping a child (or: minor under 15 yo). In June 2004, the sentence was raised to 25 years.



⠀OLD EVIDENCE, OLD SURNAMES, NEW SUSPECTS :marseyfacepalm:

Currently, two people are serving time for the rape and homicide - mainly the latter, as rape has already fallen under the statute of limitations. I guess you won't be surprised. It could have been one that walked Małgosia out the club. It's not 100% clear whether it was the same Irek, though - only two witnesses claimed so. The second one convicted for now was a club guard and a barman that night. Both the police and prosecution assume there was a third perpetrator, but no arrests were made as for now.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/a52im84s.png

Ireneusz Matuszak (becoming a suspect in June 2017, charges brought in December 2018) was, at the time of the arrest, already serving time for a sexual assault. He was convicted over time for 5 rapes on three different women. They're described as women 'he was providing for' (in what way - not specified) and they've been having consensual intercourses, too. He told one of the journalist he didn't do it and why he even knows about the charges (reply: because of getting access to the case files). About the murder in Miłoszyce, same. He didn't allow the media to show his face and release the full name. The detail pointing at him was his mention of the socks Małgosia was wearing. According to the prosecution, if she was wearing black tights over the socks, someone who didn't undress her shouldn't notice them. The ultimate proof is claimed to be the DNA test results. Some testimonies may point at him. But if all the witnesses were telling the truth, then their testimonies can't form a meaningful story.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/pwcwn45p.png

Norbert Basiura was, at the time of the arrest, living a typical life. He has a wife, who believes in his innocence, one child, and was working as a firefighter. His attitude is the opposite of the first convict. Both claim they're innocent, but Norbert allowed for the media to both show face and use full name, and was very talkative and open. According to some - suspiciously open. Videos you can find online include him testifying, interviews, scenes with his wife, even driving with one news reporter across Miłoszyce and looking for the right household. Norbert claimed he had no idea which house this was, exactly, just roughly knowing its location. He was sober during that New Year's Eve, unlike Ireneusz. In 1997, when still considered a witness, Norbert was threatened by both the police and some undefined people. He told Małgosia's father about it, and (no date was given) mentioned him three men as important in this case. One of them was Marcin Ł., a son of local businessman, who was reportedly also thought to be involved by a few others Miłoszyce residents.

Initially, they were both sentenced to 25 years. For Norbert Basiura, it was changed to 15 years. Reportedly, the sperm samples were found on the victim's clothing, coming from both of the current convicts. Blood samples from both of them were also found. At least that's what DNA tests results say. In case of Norbert Basiura, the evidence is described as 'extremely strong', and in case of Ireneusz Matuszak, 'very strong' (strong as 'convincing').


⠀THE ACQUITTAL :marseywholesome:

Tomasz Komenda was let out on parole on 15th of March 2018, and acquitted on 16th of May 2018. Right in the beginning, you can see the reactions to declaring him innocent:

Another angle:

Here is a fragment on how Tomasz was transported, at the time when it was already known that the 'second suspect' was arrested (while Tomasz formally was still the first one).

[...] When [he was] driving into Wrocław, he couldn't recognize his city. When the prison cell doors closed behind him, there were no shopping malls, which now [car] was passing one by one. The monumental Sky Tower was also a novelty. Before he was jailed, skyscrapers didn't extend 100 m of height, even in Warsaw, and this one reached above 200 m. Every few kilometers, there was a petrol station. He only remembered CPN, but its logo was replaced by new names long ago. Pendolino going through the train overpass was nearly jaw-dropping. Tomasz had only seen such vehicles in sci-fi movies, when he was a free man. And the mobile phone, from which on regular speaker said: "Turn right 150 m ahead, then keep going straight. You've reached your destination". Tomek didn't know what was going on around, even though his mother and brothers were telling him that the world has been changing much. He has only seen innovations in TV. The old PlayStation 3 and FIFA, which he was playing in the evenings outside the prison cell, was all his modern technology.

Explanations: CPN, Centrala Produktów Naftowych, was a company operating between 1945 and 1999. SkyTower's height is 212 m in total. For Tomasz, it was one of the favorite spots in 'new' Wrocław, apart from the terraced housing around the main square, all renovated.

CHILD WARNING EFFORTPOST Rorochan_1999 || Suicide livestream of a 14 year old girl

Who is she?

Rorochan_1999 was the online alias of a 14 year old girl, who seemed to struggle with a variety of mental health issues, and she appeared to be quite lonely. She started livestreaming on platforms such as FC2, Niconico, TwitCast, and Ustream in 2012. She would do a variety of things like studying, singing, dancing and playing the piano and is even rumored to have streamed herself running in the middle of traffic, avoiding speeding cars or standing on the edge of tall height buildings. There were many implications of neglect, so she used the internet to escape. She lived a double life of being a normal middle school girl, to being a streamer behind closed doors, family and friends unknowing.

Archive 1: Livestream from Nov 1, 2013

The video starts with her playing "Rudolph the red nosed reindeer" on the piano. She plays a variety of different notes, some are even disturbing to listen to, hearing the distress in the way she played. According to a native Japanese speaker in the comments of an analysis video of the situation, Roro was singing a song from the anime Minky Momo, an anime knowing for a dark ending where the protagonist died via a car crash despite it being a kids show. Rorochan_1999 had the character as her profile picture. After she sings the song from the anime, she appears to read the comments of the livestream and then shortly after have a mental breakdown. She seems to be repeating the word "daite" over and over while laughing or crying. "Daite" directly translates to hug/hold me, however with the Japanese language, context of situations change the meaning of things said. While it is speculated she was repeating "mother, hold me", that same native Japanese speaker discussed what she was saying toward the end was actually likely to be sexual in nature. She had purposely labeled her livestreams sexually as well.

Archive 2: Livestream, unknown date

In the video, she has a bag over her head to hide her face. She is seen recording herself in a mirror and wearing a robe while whispering things. She is seen hyperventilating and swinging her head furiously around the camera in a disturbing strange manner.

Her final and suicide livestream : "暗黒" November 24th, 2013

At 2:44 in the video, she stands on a trashcan, and is about to jump. We see the very tall fall in front of her. She throws her phone as she jumps. We are not able to see her jump off, but you can hear the loud sound of her hitting the ground shortly after.

Nobody saw Rorochan jump. She had jumped around 3 am, and was discovered by a female newspaper carrier within 5-10 minutes. Her body was still warm and her body was still fully in tact, her mask was hanging from one ear, one shoe was on the ground next to her. Police arrived within 5 minutes and she was pronounced dead at the hospital about 3 hours later. She did not leave a note.
I researched for hours and both fortunately and unfortunately, her name was never publicly available due to her age, and is heavily debated about online. I think it may be for best that we are not aware of her name, for the protection and wellbeing of her family. However she has been referred to as "A". There was no implications that she was bullied, a female student who she was close with said "I don't know why she committed suicide so suddenly" and students from her school said there was no signs of trouble presented otherwise.

Where she jumped from

The livestream was in "1st place” for most viewers that day

Livestream participants after she jumped.

Livestream chat logs from the stream. She had jumped in between images 10-11.
Unfortunately there were many sick individuals in some of these chat logs that were speaking sexually to her, asking her to flash, asking her to go back to her room to preform NSFW activities and more. The things that were said are truly sick.

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17113933802720442.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17113933809146154.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/1711393381179483.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17113933814043336.webp

She often stated in past livestreams or on websites such as 2chan that she wanted to "become a legend". She discussed her plans and how she wanted her death to be unexpected out of a girl like her.


The rising popularity of this case

On Jan 8, 2020 a music video was released with the title, "Shinsei Kamattechan - Ruru's Suicide Show on a Livestream Official Video (Animation)" was released. "Ruru" is the character presented in the music video, the translated lyrics consist of talking about suicide, and how the internet destroyed her. It is unclear whether or not the song is dedicated to Rorochan or not, but it is a song dedicated to suicide victims in general.

After this song rose in popularity, the case of Rorochan's suicide was publicized and brought up again. She did in fact, "become a legend". Other than her vague postings about it, her motives are unclear as to why she committed suicide. Rest in peace, Rorochan.

Above, on the thumbnail,, you see a trophy photo. It shows two brothers, Laith and Ahmad al-Hayali, tortured on the morning of their deaths. The interrogator here is Aba al-Fathil, and, quoting, the tattoo on his arm 'offers clues to sectarian motives — it says “Ya Ali” and includes a representation of a split-blade sword known as a Zulfikar, two important Shia Muslim symbols'.

TL;DR. Ali Arkady (born 1982. is an Iraqi photojournalist who spent months with soldiers from an elite Iraqi unit, the Emergency Response Division (ERD). He was sure it was a 'good side', on which both Sunni and Shia Muslim soldiers were united to fight against ISIS. Eventually, he gained enough trust to assist with documenting the arrests and torture of detainees. Some of them turned out to be innocent civilians whose admission to aiding ISIS was forced. Arkady was asked to edit these parts of the footage, only leaving for publication the proper 'confessions'. At least six separate incidents of human rights violations - technically, war crimes - were documented. However, the unit had been blacklisted in the US in March 2015 under the Leahy Act, so it was already known for human rights violations.

Sections go as follows.

1. Introduction. So when, where and how it started. Includes a 10 mins long documentary from ABC News. It has short clips depicting the abuse, as well as photos, and one execution clip (it skips death; full version is in next section, though).

2. Torture. Includes photos and descriptions, also one execution video.

3. Aftermath. About Arkady having to fleed Iraq, journalism awards and US not giving enough fucks.

4. Sources.



⠀INTRODUCTION (AND DOCUMENTARY) :marseylickinglips:

At first, Ali Arkady planned to produce a 'positive story', focused on the Emergency Response Division (ERD) of Iraq's Ministry of Interior. Previously, is work in Iraq was also focused on a project 'Happy Baghdad'. Quoting a description of his TED talk, 'In hope of showing the other side of life in Iraq, war photographer Ali Arkady worked on a project that revealed the bright aspects of the Iraqi personality'. It has (or had?) a dedicated FB fanpage. The ERD story had a plot twist. Arkady wanted to show that both Shia and Sunni Muslim soldiers can work together in the fight against ISIS. Over time, he gained enough trust to be allowed to record scenes showing the torture of captives. He was even sent a 'field execution' video of a handcuffed prisoner. Even though only 6 incidents were documented, the commander's statements (which you're gonna be familiar with after checking the doc below) clearly show that these actions were normalized. Eventually, Arkady had to flee Iraq. In 2017, the case started to be covered in the media, with longer coverage coming specifically from ABC News and the Toronto Star.

Timestamps are below the short (10 mins long) documentary.

There's not much to timestamp. At 2;25, there's a description of the first incident convincing Ali Arkady that guys are not heroes. 3;30 - another incident is described, about a sheepherder (it will be important in the next section). 4;50 onwards - commander's opinion is presented. 5;55 - another incident, with two brothers. 6;35 - a few days later, the dead bodies of the two brothers were sent (video, I mean) to Arkady (unblurred version is in the next section). 7;15 - about how the US 'does not' provide support for the unit because of the previous (not the one Arkady documented) human rights violations. 8;10 - on Happy Baghdad and how Arkady and two non-heroes made friends. 9;10 - about soldiers providing Arkady a short field execution video.

Quote on the ERD itself:

The mission of the ERD (Emergency Response Division) turned from small to big after the entry of ISIS into Al-Anbar province in Iraq (2014). They fought real battles in Tikrit, Bije, Diala, Al Faluja, and Al Mosul (2014).

ERD consists of three units: reconnaissance, snipers, and task force. Captain Omar Nazar is the head of the Task Force, and Corporal Haider Ali works in the same branch. Their squads were trained by the coalition forces, including various types of raids, as well as day and night operations.

Their mission is to achieve special operations against ISIS on the information provided by reconnaissance (intelligence branch). Omar and Haidar believe that they're fighting against the most fierce enemy in the world — ISIS. But they are confident because they have returned victors after every battle and inflicted huge losses on ISIS' ranks.

Ali Arkady received authorization from the Commander in Chief of the ERD forces (Col. Thamer Mohammed Ismail — battle name Abu Turab) to follow these forces to work on a photo story and a documentary. Arkady followed them from battles in Tikrit, Falluja, and, ultimately, the ongoing battle for Mosul.

(the battle of Mosul was ongoing from October 2016 to July 2017)



⠀TORTURE :marsey57:

Before torture, let's start with the short execution clip. With a watermark, though. It's probably from the Toronto Star channel, and the original video they linked was already deleted.

The exact numbers of photos and videos were not precized. It was only stated that there were 'hundreds of' photos, 'dozens of' videos, 'hours of' footage, and some audio recordings. One project was meant to show 20 photos summarizing the unit's activity in the most comprehensive way possible, chosen from among 450 photos. It's in general, though, not about torture.

Some photos below are 2-3 MB in size, if they don't load, just wait!


First, the mentioned incident with a shepherd. His name was Mehdi Mahmoud, and two soldiers tortured him. He was put on the ground (6th photo) after one hour. Mehdi Mahmoud was displaced from Mosul with his son, 16 yo Ahmed, and arrested upon his arrival. Both of them were tortured and released. Two weeks after the incident, Ali Arkady heard that Ahmed was arrested again and killed with other detainees near Qabr Al-Abd.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/07rs8ojr.jpg https://pomf2.lain.la/f/oqzdnqa5.jpg https://pomf2.lain.la/f/0np295xr.jpg

Now, time for the nighttime arrest incident. You have clips in the documentary. Photos show the arrest of Rashid. The ERD team entered his home while the whole family was asleep. Rashid's wife, Taghreed, and two children, Hind and Cedara, were left untouched, and he was released the same night. However, Rashid was arrested a week later. Another week passed, and Rashid died in the intelligence center.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/x8037e3c.jpg https://pomf2.lain.la/f/ey6trhdw.jpg


Another victim (no torture photos in the source), Raad Hindia. He was married, had two kids, and also worked in a mosque as a cleaner. After the second arrest, he was tortured for three hours and then transferred to the intelligence center. Two weeks later, he was executed without trial :marseydepressed:

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/b42xctoe.jpg


Here is the case of two brothers - Ahmed Abdullah Hassan and Leish Abdullah Hassan. Previously, they were confirmed by the Iraqi special forces to be civilians, not ISIS fighters, and they received permission to enter the Gogjali area. They moved here from Quds, where the fighting started between the Iraqi forces and ISIS. Eventually, the Iraqi Federal Police arrested them and handed them over to the ERD.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/8u6ozyf.jpg https://pomf2.lain.la/f/hg5a7jjv.jpg

Here, fingers are put in Leish's eyes, and knife is put behind Ahmed's ear. About the latter, the soldier claimed that it was US soldiers who taught him which spot right behind the ear is especially painful to pin.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/fix7c64s.jpg https://pomf2.lain.la/f/hz4mpwt6.jpg

Nervous as the abuse begins, photographer Arkady expects an officer will enter the room at any moment and shut down his cameras. He continues documenting, alternating his camera between still and video mode. Here, we see an interrogator Ali Abdul Hussein gouge his fingers into the eye sockets of detainee Ahmad Abdullah Hassan Mohammed. British soldiers who were found to have tortured Iraqi prisoners in 2003 also used this method, according to an inquiry into the abuse.

(I've already made a post about this, too, that's Basra case - kinda British counterpart of Abu Ghraib)

Here, Ahmed gets finger pushed down inside his mouth. Other descriptions suggest it's pushed under the tongue. If it doesn't look bad for you, try doing it on yourself now :marseywink: In the second photo, it's Ahmed again.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/bzv0nt8m.jpg https://pomf2.lain.la/f/air801xh.jpg

Interrogator Hussein places a gloved hand inside the detainee's mouth, pressing down hard underneath the tongue. “If I push hard enough, I can break your voice this way,” he said aloud, according to photographer Arkady.

Eventually, Ahmed lost consciousness. I didn't see a caption for this second photo (just found it as related to the case), but if you look at the colors of the clothes, it seems that it is Ahmed. Can be one of the trophy photos taken by the perpetrators themselves (more below).

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/0ahv6bo0.jpg https://pomf2.lain.la/f/vo957r8r.jpg

TROPHY PHOTOS: Photos taken by the Iraqi military perpetrators and later shared with photographer Ali Arkady show the torment of brothers Laith and Ahmad al-Hayali on the morning of their deaths. The stylized calligraphy tattooed on interrogator Aba al-Fathil's arm offers clues to sectarian motives — it says “Ya Ali” and includes a representation of a split-blade sword known as a Zulfikar, two important Shia Muslim symbols.

https://pomf2.lain.la/f/ry9ogwg.png

And a promised video.

A 20-second clip showing an Iraqi special forces interrogator looming over the lifeless bodies of two Sunni Muslim brothers after a night of torture, snarling, “We crushed them” in revenge for sins against Iraq's Shiite community.


There was one particularly entertained guy, which you've seen, e.g., in the knife against the skull (spot behind the ear) photo and in the one with pushing a finger down under the tongue.

Interrogator Ali Abdul Hussein is known in the unit as “Mushtaraka” (“Virus”) — so named for his computer skills and overall ability to keep the soldiers connected. The multilingual soldier also spent time as a liaison between the ERD and U.S. forces. Here, we see him press a knife beneath the ear of detained brother Ahmad. He tells photographer Arkady he learned this technique from American soldiers.

This one was mentioned not only as the soul of the party with IT skills, but also as an especially sadistic guy. It's time to get back to the two brothers.

In one of the most brutal scenes captured by Arkrady, two half-brothers, one a used car salesman, the other a falafel stand operator, in the town of Bazwaia were subjected to a seven-hour torture session. As with their previous victim, Arkrady says, E.R.D. officers did not offer any proof that the brothers had any affiliation with the group.

"They were not ISIS," Arkady said.

American special operations forces have advised and coordinated military operations in eastern Mosul, but no Americans appear in the hours of videos shot by Arkady. In this case, however, the particularly sadistic torturer was a man they knew as "Ali Mushtarakah," who E.R.D. officers identified to ABC News as their liaison with Coalition Forces.

He shocked the brothers with live wires, ripped out the beard of one prisoner, and placed a knife behind the ear of the other, pressing it into his flesh while demanding he recite the ISIS pledge.

Mushtarakah, who claimed to have worked as a contractor and interpreter for the American military in Iraq for a decade, boasted to Arkady he had been taught such interrogation methods by American forces.

"Say the pledge of allegiance [to ISIS] or I will make you unable to talk anymore," Mushtarakah shouts at one brother, as he presses the prisoner's face into the floor with his knee.

"I swear, I don't know it,” the prisoner pleads, wincing in pain with each twist of Mushtarakah's blade. “I swear I don't know it.”

But Mushtarakah persisted.

"Say the pledge of allegiance or I'll turn you mute," he said.

It's not just him having fun, as apparently entertainment was the main goal of some torture. Alright, my own opinion time. Why not make anti-ISIS propaganda the main goal? The guys were tortured and later killed for real. You don't need to really hurt and kill someone to make a photo look like there is an ongoing interrogation. If so, it can be 15 minutes, not a whole hour or three on regular. Keeping 'trophies' is a known pattern in such cases, too. People want to believe what they're told is justified. In my opinion, if they were staging the interrogations well enough, some uninformed person would like to believe these were ISIS guys. Just like WPD users who like to believe that the torture they're watching was 'justified' and 'deserved'.

⠀AFTERMATH :marseyunamused:

Although Ali Arkady got enough trust to record the torture, he wasn't sure whether he'd be asked to delete it. In at least one case, he quickly transferred the photos to a hard drive, believing what he had witnessed (it was about these two brothers) could be past the limit. Arkady fled to Europe with his wife and young daughter, afraid of the consequences of betraying the trust of the ERD members. How did he escape? Here's the story, which followed the description of this short execution video.

Nazar and Ali later shared the video with Arkady via WhatsApp.

“They were proud of it. I felt sick. I felt scared. It was crazy,” he said.

The next night, as the soldiers slept, Arkady crept upstairs and called VII Photo on Skype seeking guidance. He knew he had a strong story to tell. He feared the soldiers would turn on him. The photographers advised him to get out. Arkady told the soldiers his daughter was ill, and he fled. Barely a week later, he had made his way to Doha, then onward to Europe. His wife and daughter soon followed. Arrangements were also made for Arkady's parents, though he wants the details to remain secret.

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/16986038825495574.webp

Ali Arkady's courageous photos and video of the brutal torture and killing of Iraqi civilians by a branch of Iraqi special forces speak for themselves. The Toronto Star was approached by VII Photo Agency, which represents Arkady in mid-April [2017] and agreed to publishing the photos and video after we had interviewed Arkady and verifying to our satisfaction their authenticity. Foreign affairs reporter Mitch Potter, national security reporter Michelle Shephard and national bureau chief Bruce Campion-Smith spent several weeks assigned to that task.

(about 'we' - it is quoted from the website of Online News Association, but the context is Toronto Star's project from Arkady, titled Bound. Tortured. Killed.)

News from May 2017 said that there was no proper reaction from the US, even though the unit was already blacklisted.

The unit had already been blacklisted in March 2015 under the Leahy Act, which requires foreign military units to be banned from receiving U.S. military aid if there is "credible information that such unit has committed a gross violation of human rights.” Top American commanders, however, have continued to praise the successes of the E.R.D. and boast of a "fruitful partnership" between the U.S. military and the unit, including coordinating airstrikes on ISIS.

'What if'?

A spokesperson for the U.S.-led Operation Inherent Resolve in Baghdad said officials were not previously aware of the atrocities documented by Arkady, and the U.S. military has since contacted Iraqi officials to discuss the incidents exposed by ABC News. The spokesperson also defended, however, the U.S. military's legal right to work with a unit deemed essential to the campaign to liberate Mosul.

CHILD WARNING EFFORTPOST The suicide of 12 year old Katelyn Nicole Davis (ITZ Dolly) | full write up :marseysaki:

Introduction

This one's personal.

I remeber when this happened. It's on a personal level for me because Katelyn and I were born the same year, 2004, and I was going through some of the same issues she had around the same time. Struggling with mental illness, abuse, self harm and being hospitalized were issues I had to deal with, and at such a young age. This story absolutely breaks my heart on so many levels. So let's talk about Katelyn.

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/1713749255878234.webp

Katelyn Nichole Davis was born on February 20th, 2004 in Rome, Georgia. Around the time of her suicide, she was living in a trailer with her mom, Tammy, her step-dad Anthony and her 2 younger half siblings.

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17137492562601912.webp

Livestreams

She was known as "ITZ Dolly" on a platform called Live.me where she recorded multiple hours of live streams of her everyday life where she would sing, take care of her younger siblings, do her makeup, talking to the chat and answering questions they had. During these streams she would sometimes break down and cry and share how her mom was selling drugs and doing pills, and how her step-dad tried to have sex with her. People also often asked her if her siblings were her kids because they were always on her streams.

Katelyn talking about how her step-dad tried to rape her

She says after she denied his advances, he called her a "worthless whore" and that she should hang herself. "He hated my guts but then he still tried to get in my pants" He told her to hang herself because she wasn't worth it.

Katie used vlogging to cope with her mental illness and poor home life. She shares how her home is practically unlivable, a piece of her wall is gone, she has no door and there is a hole in her floor leading outside. She wrote in "Diary of a Broken Doll" that one time a bird flew into her room through the hole, and how its extremely cold during the winter. She was worried about getting sick from the leaky pipe completely soaking her floor because "cold + wet = sickness". Her shoes would often break and fall apart from the floor being wet so she only had one good pair of shoes.

[lv_0_20240419215625.mp4]

Another thing she wrote was that her bed wasnt even a bed, it's an old rusty mattress on the wet floor.

Sometimes she would have Hundreds of people watching her streams, so they were all seeing this. They were all witnessing her living conditions and hearing all of these terrible things from Katie, so you think they would be worried enough to take action right? Most of her viewers were much older than her and they would ask her creepy things like if she lives alone. She once said "I'm not doing that! Im not taking my shirt off." And "yes I'm wearing stuff under my pajamas." Like who in their right mind is saying these things to someone who is so young. And it's not like theh didnt know, Katie has said countless times that she is 13. She has reminded viewers this over and over again so they are well aware she's a child even though they are saying these weird things. During all this she just keeps asking herself "why are all these people trying to get with me?"

"Im Thirteen" (she dosent seem super uncomfortable in this case, but in others she is)

Although, she did enjoy being complemented like in the video above because she was "used to being insulted" (being called pretty and told she is nice)

One time during a stream joking around with her little brother someone said "perv and proud" to which she replied "What? You're being a perv?? Thats my little brother! He's 4! Im 13!" Then she blocked and reported the person and began expressing how that is not okay. She also said the person was trying to get her and her little brother to touch inappropriately.

She was also a victim of catfishing, a girl named Alexa was pretending to be a boy named Ben and tricked Katie for months which affected her greatly.

She did end up dating a boy named Luke who was 19. Luke is a weirdo, in a stream talking about Katie after her death someone asks him how old he is to which he replies that he doesn't give out his age. Dude is clearly an adult you ain't fooling nobody

Katie talking about Luke

Bullying

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17137492566657603.webp

Katie talking about how she gets bullied and how Anthony told her he would go buy the rope for her to hang herself

[lv_0_20240419210641.mp4]

People would call her Ugly, an Emo freak, a monster, and one boy called her a lonely demon girl in front of the whole class while passing out papers.

Katelyn's dad

[lv_0_20240419210400.mp4]

When Katie talks about her dad, she describes him as wanting nothing to do with her, and even saying she doesn't have a dad. When she tried to see him he was uninterested, even though he only lived 2 miles away from her he still did not come see her. And when she was in the hospital after trying to commit suicide with pills, her never visited her or cared to see how she was doing. In one stream, she said the last time she saw her dad was in the store and when she tried to hug him, he walked away from her.

Katelyn's mom

Let's talk about Tammy for a moment, a neglectful, abusive, drug addict of a mother. Katie talks about her mom in a stream and explains how she mostly deals drugs, but she used to eat pills but now she crushes them up and snorts them right in front of her

Katelyn talking about how her mom sells and does drugs, and how she leaves Katie with her 2 younger siblings for hours at a time

Katelyn says if she asked her mom where she was going, she would just say she was going up the road but then would not come back home for a while.

In one stream, just the day before she committed suicide, the two have a heated argument.

Tammy is yelling at Katie to come out here, when Katie says she's getting dressed her mother continues to yell at her saying she doesn't care, and "get out here before I beat your ass" Katie has her phone hidden behind the curtain before she goes out. Tammy is complaining about the kids making a mess or whatever, Katie says that it is not her fault that they won't listen to her, and that she keeps leaving her to take care of them. Tammy said she told her to whip the children if they don't listen, which Katie replied that she can't because when she does they still don't listen. Lots of things were said back and forth, Tammy kept saying she was gonna whip her ass and that she needs to go back to the hospital. Katie brings up everything How Tammy did not get rid of Anthony as soon as the abuse happened, how shes snorting pills, bringing guys home and kissing up on them, how she's expected to do so many things and the pressure is just getting too much for her. You can hear the pain in her voice as Tammy continuously brushes her off and just won't listen "she didn't take her pill today" and "its none of your business what I do." She makes excuses for just about everything Katelyn says "I'm just trying to make money" when she brings up the selling drugs and "is he here now? No he's not still here" to the Anthony thing even though Katie's whole point was that she didn't make him leave immediately.

I can only imaging the frustration Katie was feeling during this, she had nobody except the people watching her streams. And if this was the way her mother was treating these issues then she must've felt extremely invalidated. She had no support other than her viewer's.

December 30th, 2016

The following video is the last stream Katie made before the one where she died

On the evening of December 30th 2016, Katelyn started a live stream on Live.me, it starts off with her walking outside, looking at thd camera with a blank stare as she walks toward the tree in her backyard. She has her hair and makeup done. She puts down the phone and spends about 15 minutes tying the rope to the tree.

Once she's done, at 16:56 she picks up her phone again and apologizes, saying she's sorry she's not pretty enough, she's sorry to the people who watched her streams, and she's sorry she wasn't strong enough. She cries and repeatedly apologizes over and over again. She puts the phone back down and steps up, putting the rope around her neck and continues to apologize. She says sorry to Luke, Sorry to Ben, to God, to everyone as she continues to cry. You can hear her breathing very heavily as the reality began to sit in. The first time she says goodbye, the rope begins to choke her a bit. she's scared, hesitant. She apologizes again, says bye, and kicks away whatever she was standing on. The sun is setting, as it gets darker and darker you can eventually only see a silhouette of her swaying. Before it gets too dark, you can see her clenching her fists and shaking as she spins for a bit (2 common effects while hanging) although there isn't too much flailing like you see in other videos.

Around the 30 minute point, Katie's phone begins to ring and go off multiple times. Towards the end of the video, you can hear her mother calling out to her from the house. Then the stream ends.

Circulation of the video brought media outrage. Why did it take so long for the video to be removed? Why can't the police force sites to take it down? All of these missing the point completely. They were more worried about how she died rather than what caused her to take her own life. Investigations were done on the family but nothing came of it. Other parts of the media were supportive and worried about youth depression and suicide.

Conclusion

Katie would've been 20 last month, its been 8 years since she committed suicide. Whenever I feel suicidal, I think of Katie. I think of how suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Things can and will get better, you just need to try to believe that they can. It breaks my heart to think about how she was so young, only 12. There's no reason a 12 year old should've been taking care of little kids for extended periods of time, there's no reason she should've been held up to such expectations. 12 year olds are meant to be playing outside, participating in sports, hanging out with friends etc. They failed Katie, she needed help and nobody gave it to her. No child deserves to be bullied or treated the way she was treated. She deserved a normal childhood. Rest in peace Katie.

If you or a friend are struggling with suicidal thoughts and feel you may be in danger of hurting yourself, I highly recommend calling 988 or visiting the site. Find a trusted person to talk to, it gets better.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, it means a lot to me.

EFFORTPOST Helium Suicides: A thread of 15 different cases ! :marseybow:

Helium, classified among inert gases, poses a risk of physical asphyxiation due to its ability to diminish the partial pressure of oxygen in the breathing atmosphere, potentially resulting in fatality after brief exposure. In scenarios where individuals inhale a mix of inert gases (such as helium, nitrogen, or argon) with a minimal oxygen component and the ability to expel carbon dioxide, subjects may not perceive typical suffocation warning signs. The ease of access to necessary equipment, coupled with the absence of discomfort, pain, and rapid effects, has led to the utilization of inert gases for suicidal purposes.

:marseyballoon3:

The emergence of "suicide bags" or "exit bags" was first reported in the 1990s. These kits consist of a plastic bag affixed with a drawstring, connected to tubing carrying an inert gas like helium, nitrogen, or argon. Prolonged breath-holding in such a scenario induces dyspnea, caused by elevated carbon dioxide partial pressure in the blood. However, in cases where individuals can breathe freely, expelling carbon dioxide but encountering oxygen deficiency in a mixture containing an inert gas, the body does not trigger an alarm response. Consequently, suicides involving inert gas inhalation typically lack dyspnea and panic associated with consciousness loss.

:marseyballoon:

Helium is the predominant choice for suicidal asphyxiation, recognized as generally harmless to the human body. Nevertheless, as it competes with oxygen in the bloodstream, it can lead to central nervous system (CNS) hypoxia, posing lethal risks. Inhaling gas mixtures with higher helium concentrations may result in symptoms such as dizziness, balance issues, and loss of consciousness. A mere minute of inhaling helium can initiate CNS damage, with unconsciousness occurring within approximately five breaths when using a plastic bag. Death may ensue after about 13 minutes (within a range of 2–40 minutes).

:marseyballoon3:

Incidents involving the discovery of a body with a plastic bag on the head are often attributed to suicide, with homicides and accidents being rare. If a plastic bag, accompanied by a cylinder containing helium or another inert gas, is found at the scene, it is highly probable that the deceased intentionally took their own life.

:marseyballoon:

Individuals grappling with suicidal thoughts are strongly encouraged to reach out to their local hotline for immediate support and assistance.

Lets start, shall we? :marseysmug2:

Another torture post, another country. I've considered doing a longer post on Egypt for weeks, but I will stop at the very beginning. These videos may not seem violent to some users (sorry, 'but mother was hitting me harder' is not a good argument). They were very useful from 2006 onwards, though, as YouTube and blogs were back then still a relatively new tools for the activists. There was a dedicated website, tortureinegypt.net, which - judging from archive.org versions - operated between January 2006 and March 2011. The latter date is the last time the news appeared there, the site itself was still up for a while. [Possibly post will be updated]

This post is divided into two parts. Videos 1-4 are short and not so graphic. Video 5 is a case of sexual assault by the cops, which was a VERY loud case and caused the most outrage of all these 2006-2007 videos. Two police officers, who sodomized an innocent 21 yo man with a broomstick, were sentenced for 3 years in prison.



:1:

First, a woman being a suspect in a murder case (length: 0;32). Description and some translations under the video. It was first published at last on 3rd of January 2007 by the Egyptian bloggers, and then re-uploaded after YT removed it. This video didn't get as much attention as the two following ones. It was mentioned in The Guardian on 12th of January 2007, though, in an article about Egyptian bloggers exposing police brutality with the help of YouTube.

This detained girl is brutally tortured by Egyptian police to force her confess a murder crime.

Out of the excruciating pain, the girl said "..aah..I killed him..I killed him..I killed him". The police officer was very calm undisturbed by seeing the girl suffering. In fact he seemed enjoying video taping her suffering. He said " You're a liar. You know these cell-phones are very important in ..psupsu). Psupsu is not a word. He used it to refer to torture.

The girl was begging him in tears that she feels her hands as if being cut off her arms due to the severe excruciating pain and called upon him as "Ya Basha" to untie her hands. Calling him "Basha" revealed that the torturer was a police officer. The word "Basha" is widely used to address police officers and other important figures in Egypt. It is not an official title. It goes back in history to the Ottomani era, when the "Khedewi" (the Ottomani ruler of Egypt) used to envoke this official title on high-rank figures the same way The British Queen would envoke the title "Sir" or "Knight" on distinguished figures.


:2:

Slapping video, from 2006.

The officer who appeared in the “slapping video” has been identified by the independent weekly Al-Stragr.

His name is Lieutenant Mustafa Shehata, of El-Haram Police Station in Giza. Though an Interior Minister official told Wael Abdel Fattah of Al-Stragr, the officer was under “administrative detention,” it turned out the officer was still working at the station, but was under “administrative investigation.”

News from 14th of January 2007:

Police Lieutenant Mustafa Shehata who appeared in the notorious “slaps” video will be referred to an “administrative punitive board within the Giza Security Directorate,” reported Al-Masry Al-Youm. This means basically Shehata will sit in front of a bunch of fellow police officers to be judged for showering detainee Ahmad Gad with slaps (and who knows what else happened without being recorded).

The charges leveled against Shehata include employing “brute force” against a citizen in custody. Egyptian law does not recognize “torture” except if the abuse fiesta's purpose was “extracting information.” The same goes for Police Captain Islam Nabih and Corporal Reda Fathi, who sexually abused driver Emad Kabeer in Bulaq al-Dakrour Police Station. They will face charges of “employing brute force” against a citizen, and not “torture.” Why? Because they inserted a stick up Emad's ass for the sake of fun, and not for “extracting information.”


:3:

Uploaded to YouTube on 3rd of March 2007.

Meanwhile, a new video of Egyptian police brutality has surfaced online. In the video, a police corporal (referred to in the video as “Abdel Rassoul”) could be seen hitting a detainee on the back of the neck and slapping him on the face. The person who's filming could be heard saying: “That's weak Abdel Rassoul…” encouraging the corporal to hit the detainee stronger.


:4:

I have no more info on this one (lost the link). Just a very short clip of a man being hit at the neck.


There is another video, but as YT deleted it (and I didn't find it anywhere else, for now). I only have description:

A new police brutality video has been leaked out of Port Said Police Station. The officer, videotaping the abuse, is tormenting the detainee by refusing to let him use the bathroom, and ordering him to urinate on himself.

And one another removed from YT:

[...] a plainclothes police agent arresting and beating up a suspect before shoving him into a van



:5: - THE INCIDENT AND JOURNALIST INVESTIGATION

The best goes to the end. This video, including an assault with a stick, was probably the most controversial and talked about around the time of its release. It also applies to legal aftermath coverage. It could be a separate post, but I didn't want it to be removed for SA (here it's not posted on its own, so safer). It was first posted at last on 10th of November 2006, the incident took place on 13th of January 2006.

About the background:

`Imad al-Kabir [alternative spelling: Emad Kabeer], a microbus driver from the Giza neighborhood of Bulaq al-Dakrur, told Human Rights Watch that two plainclothes officers detained him on January 18, 2006 after he intervened in an altercation between the officers and his cousin. Al-Kabir said that the officers first beat him on the street, then held him in the Bulaq police station, where officers – including at least two whom al-Kabir identified from the neighborhood – bound his arms and legs and severely whipped him. The officers then undressed him, raised his legs, and raped him with a stick while one videotaped the episode with a mobile phone. Police released al-Kabir after 36 hours without filing any charges against him.

In the video, the man is screaming 'Never mind Pasha, I'm sorry Pasha' - addressing someone important, which confirms that his abuser was a cop. Certain words in the dialogue led the activists to the conclusion that the guy might be a minibus driver (later confirmed). Even though the video was consistent with the previous torture reports and videos, the sexual assault on another man was especially shocking in the conservative Muslim country.

The breakthrough came in early August 2007. The journalist from Al-Stragr received a tip that the video could have been recorded at Omraniya Police Station, and knowing that the victim may be a bus driver, he started investigating.

Al-Stragr journalist Kamal Murad picked the lead, combed for three days the microbuses station in Omraniya, with no success. Last Wednesday, however, Kamal received an anonymous call on his mobile phone, informing him that the driver worked at Nahia bus station, which follows Bulaq al-Dakrour Police Station.

Kamal went to the bus station, only to discover fear among drivers. The police agents, he said, distributed the video among drivers as a way of humiliating the driver who appeared in the film, and terrorize the rest of the drivers into submission to police rule.

Kamal discovered the victim's name was Emad Muhammad Ali Kabeer, holder of a preparatory school degree (E'adadiya), and the second among nine brothers and sisters.

Emad's source of income is a microbus, and lives with his family in one of Kerdassa's village. His father, according to Wael, passed away after he learned what happened to his son.

An article in al-Stragr:

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/1701580573985856.webp

Reaching out to 21 yo Imad wasn't easy due to the emotional trauma he went through. Eventually, the more detailed information about his detention was released. Some autotranslated parts sound weird, but overall, it's good enough. Imad was first beaten until he fell down. Then 7 police officers started to kick him. It was at Nahia Police Station. After this torture appetizer, Imad was transported to Bulaq el-Dakrour Police Station, where he was kept for 7 days and raped on the 8th one. His feet were chained, and his hands were handcuffed. Here comes the part that's messed up in the autotranslation, but eventually, Imad ended up with clothes torn from the waist down. He received a whipping, nearly fainted and became much weaker. Then, cops brought him down 'in a humiliating manner', and asked him to say: 'I am a woman. I am a cute twink'. His anus was covered in some cream-like substance before inserting the broomstick.

This rape stage lasted around one hour, and Imad was assured by the officers that it's all being recorded. The video was shared among the bus drivers via mobile before ending up online months later.


:5: - LEGAL AFTERMATH

At first, Egyptian police lawyers claimed that the videos were fake and that during the mentioned time, the police officers weren't even on duty there. They referred to a case of Howayda Taha, a reporter for Al-Jazeera, who was arrested with videotapes of re-enactments of torture scenes for a documentary she was working on. After Imad's story was published in al-Stragr on 11th of December 2006, he received several calls with threats against him and his family. The next day, '*semi-official' newspaper al-Ahram reported that Imad had disavowed the account published in al-Fajr and wanted to sue the newspaper. The following day, Imad - encouraged by a human rights lawyer - explained to a public prosecutor that the threats made him retract his story, but he wants to press charges and needs protection. The prosecutor promptly opened an investigation.

The identities of two of the torturers were known in December. The first was Bulaq al-Dakrour Police Station Captain Islam Nabih. Before many photos from the trials were released, only one 'exclusive' photo of Islam was available - taken when he was leaving the Prosecutor's office.

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17015815653795476.webp

Islam was described as the 'torture supervisor'. The second guy identified was the cameraman, Police Corporal Reda Fathi el-Sayyed.

On 5th of November 2007, both of these men were sentenced to 3 years in prison. One of the arguments was that Nabih doesn't deserve a longer sentence, because he's still young (27 yo). Here's a comment from a blogger whose posts I used as a vast majority of sources:

The two sadist pigs from Bulaq el-Dakrour Police Station, Captain Islam Nabih and Corporal Reda Fathi, were sentenced yesterday to three years in prison for sodomizing driver Emad Kabeer and filming the abuse to further the humiliation.

There is a sense of joy in the blogosphere which broke the scandal as well as the independent press that carried on with the investigation.

Photos from the court (not from the day of sentencing, though):

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17015832481925244.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17015834172143178.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17015832483163867.webp

However, it didn't mean that there was a happy end:

Putting away an officer or two behind bars means nothing, and don't get fooled by those who tell you that other officers will take that as a warning not to torture. The only “warning” those officers will receive is to actually be more careful next time and refrain from filming the abuse. Even little kids in Egypt, who also fell on occasions victims to to Mubarak's police monstrosity, understand well what it means to be “mabaheth” (investigations police).

Does that mean we stay at home and wait for change of regime to happen to see torture abolished? Hell No! We have to continue our anti-torture campaign in even more aggressive way… and the tactics are the same: “Naming and Shaming”. If we see abuse, we'll photograph it. If we see a torturer, we'll scandalize him among the public and the world.. We will continue to gather and document evidence about torturers, and collect the testimonies from victims and witnesses.

A man has set himself on fire outside the New York courtroom where Donald Trump's hush money trial is taking place.

Moments after a full jury had been selected to hear the trial at Manhattan Criminal Court, the man's body was reportedly engulfed in flames for at least three minutes outside.

A CNN anchor said on air: “I see a totally charred human being.”

The man used a flammable liquid to set himself on fire in the designated protest area outside the court, with horrified bystanders screaming and fleeing.

US media has named the victim as Maxwell Azzarello, from St Augustine in Florida.

In a press conference, police said he appeared to be a “conspiracy theorist” and said he threw around “propaganda” containing claims about Ponzi schemes and the mafia before starting the fire.

Police said Mr Azzarello had poured an alcohol-based cleaning liquid on himself before lighting the fire, and that he had been taken to a local burn unit in a critical condition.

Mr Azzarello published a blog post on Friday that opened with the words: “My name is Max Azzarello, and I am an investigative researcher who has set himself on fire outside of the Trump trial in Manhattan.”

The rest of the post made only a handful of references to Mr Trump, apart from claiming he was a member of a “secret kleptocracy” along with every previous president and their election rival.

Police with fire extinguishers rushed to the scene. Sirens could be heard blaring as correspondents reported smelling the burning of flesh. The heat of the flames could be felt from 100ft away, the New York Times reported.

A smouldering backpack and a gas can were visible afterwards, according to one witness. Police taped off the scene.

Broadcasters recorded what happened – some then cut away and apologised for showing the footage – through the metal barricades in place for Mr Trump's trial. The scene is close to several courthouses and other buildings.

A New York Police Department spokesman said: “A male did light himself on fire outside of the Supreme Courthouse. We're still gathering details from the field.”

Mr Trump did not respond to questions from reporters about the incident. His campaign offered “condolences to the traumatised witnesses” and paid tribute to “the great first responders of the City of New York”.

Mr Trump's criminal trial is being conducted amid tight security in a 15th floor courtroom swarming with Secret Service officers as well as court police.

The New York Police Department has promised a major deployment to ensure that the trial passes off safely, with John Hart, the force's head of intelligence calling it a “major challenge”.

The 12 jurors, along with six alternates, will consider evidence in the first ever criminal trial to determine whether a former US president is guilty of breaking the law.


HIS MANIFESTO

My name is Max Azzarello, and I am an investigative researcher who has set himself on fire outside of the Trump trial in Manhattan.

This extreme act of protest is to draw attention to an urgent and important discovery:

We are victims of a totalitarian con, and our own government (along with many of their allies) is about to hit us with an apocalyptic fascist world coup.

These claims sound like fantastical conspiracy theory, but they are not. They are proof of conspiracy. If you investigate this mountain of research, you will prove them too. If you learn a great deal about Ponzi schemes, you will discover that our life is a lie. If you follow this story and the links below, you will discover the rotten truth of ‘post-truth America'. You will learn the scariest and stupidest story in world history. And you will realize that we are all in a desperate state of emergency that requires your action.

To my friends and family, witnesses and first responders, I deeply apologize for inflicting this pain upon you. But I assure you it is a drop in the bucket compared to what our government intends to inflict.

Because these words are true, this is an act of revolution.

--

Last March, a billionaire named Peter Thiel started a bank run on Silicon Valley Bank. I knew enough about Thiel that I found this incredibly suspicious: My hunch was that this was intentional, though I couldn't fathom why.

I began investigating online, and quickly found cryptocurrency's fingerprints all over it. The bank run occurred just days after Silvergate Bank – which catered almost exclusively to crypto companies – collapsed. Meanwhile, several crypto cheerleaders were all over financial media warning of a regional banking crisis, and nobody in media was addressing the clear crypto connections.

I dug deep into the financials of Thiel's venture capital firm Founders Fund and eventually uncovered the following, all proven many times over.

  • Cryptocurrency is our first planetary multi-trillion-dollar Ponzi scheme. It was expressly created for this purpose by a laundry list of rich and powerful people out of Stanford/Silicon Valley and Harvard/Facebook.

  • The March 2023 bank failures were all intentional: the banks were used to move out stolen Ponzi money. This signals that they're no longer dumping cash in to keep the cryptocurrency Ponzi afloat, and that it will soon go insolvent, as all Ponzis must.

  • When the Ponzi scheme goes insolvent, it will take down half the stock market with it: The perpetrators used their major companies to pipe into the blockchain so they could funnel money out from the crypto exchanges. This includes Google, Tesla, Apple, PayPal, Facebook, Disney, Walmart, Target, InBev, Zoom, and countless others.

  • It is a Ponzi scheme so large that it created global inflation, which is why the price of Bitcoin has been a remarkable leading indicator for inflation rates. Victims who bought crypto don't realize their money has already been stolen, so the money gets double-counted by the victims and the criminals who stole it.

  • As it turns out, our elites are awash in Ponzi schemes. Stanford's StartX.com investment fund and Jeffrey Epstein's ‘Program for Evolutionary Dynamics' he ran at Harvard are both fake-science Ponzi factories that these schools have invested billions in: They are filled with fraudulent companies that use smoke and mirrors to promise miraculous new technology, but always collapse while the perpetrators only get richer.

  • Funneling trillions of dollars in stolen cash through the stock market created the largest stock-market anomaly in history. The stock chart signature of a Ponzi scheme is a massive increase (while they stack up cash) and then a massive fall (as they funnel out the stolen cash). This chart shape appeared in all the companies listed above. In order to explain the massive anomaly, our criminal government unleashed COVID on the world and told us these were the “stay at home stocks.”

--

Ponzi schemes are vicious beasts, and cryptocurrency is history's largest Ponzi by orders of magnitude. It could best be described as an economic doomsday device, intentionally made to shatter the world economy.

The U.S. government is fully involved in this totalitarian con: To illustrate its bipartisan support, I'll note that nearly every participant of the Clinton Global Initiative has ties to cryptocurrency, while two of the biggest tech VCs who participated are Trump associates Josh Kushner and Anthony Scaramucci.

To better understand our form of government, I will point you to one of the most astonishing pieces of stand-alone evidence I've found: Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton's 1988 DNC speech where he nominated Mike Dukakis for president against George H.W. Bush. The speech is a vile, mean-spirited roast of Dukakis that makes no sense whatsoever: For Clinton to ruthlessly attack a member of his own party should have been political suicide, and he repeatedly mocks Dukakis' noble and earnest qualities.

Notably, actor Rob Lowe, who was supporting Dukakis, was victim of a teen sex blackmail operation at the DNC that year. Since we know Clinton is a close associate with teen sex blackmail artist Jeffrey Epstein, we can suddenly make perfect sense of the nonsensical speech by applying this lens: Bill Clinton is a cocky mob boss who blackmailed Mike Dukakis because Dukakis thought his job was to help the public. He teases out the future public revelation that Kitty Dukakis drank rubbing alcohol, and offers a strange anecdote about the crack epidemic that reveals he is an exceedingly proud drug runner.

What does this revelation tell us? That our government is conning us completely. That Bill Clinton was secretly on (former CIA Director) George H.W. Bush's side, and that the Democrat vs. Republican division has been entirely manufactured ever since: Clinton is with Bush; Gore is with Bush; Trump is with Hillary, and so on. When they present themselves in public, they are acting as characters that are against one another, practicing kayfabe as wrestlers do.

As it turns out, we have a secret kleptocracy: Both parties are run by financial criminals whose only goals are to divide, deceive, and bleed us dry. They divide the public against itself and blame the other party while everything gets worse and more expensive and handful of people take all the money.

Since it is fully parasitic, a secret kleptocracy is an incredibly unstable form of government – left to its own devices, it can only lead to fascism or failed state.

--

One of the key findings of this research is that Harvard University is one of the largest organized crime fronts in history, which is how they churn out billionaires – it's a major hub of this sprawling criminal network.

As it turns out, dozens of the writers of The Simpsons went to Harvard. So I asked myself the question: If The Simpsons served the interests of organized crime, how would it do so?

Well, it offers a dysfunctional family suffering from moral decay, a community incapable of solving its problems, a worker drone who slaves away for an evil billionaire, and cathartic laughs for our poor collective circumstances.

There are some notable specifics as it relates to this research, too: In Marge vs. The Monorail, the townsfolk are too oafish and divided to invest in the town's needs (fix Main Street) and fall for the charms of a dazzling showman with a bogus monorail Ponzi scheme. When we know that the show is closely linked to an organization that invests billions of dollars in Ponzi factories, this becomes quite damning.

In Lisa the Iconoclast, Lisa discovers that town founder Jebediah Springfield was a secret criminal con artist, and that the townsfolk's lives are a lie. Realizing this is an important discovery, she desperately tries to get the townsfolk to listen to her. But they meet her with hostility, apathy, disbelief, and partisanship and she fails to get through to them. Ultimately, she realizes the town is so far gone that perhaps it's better for them to be lied to by con artists, and she keeps the secret to herself.

And here I've been, like Lisa Simpson, desperately trying to get friends, family, and the public to believe the proof of a totalitarian con I'm trying to show them, and they've turned away with hostility, apathy, disbelief, and partisanship.

And so, we realize the criminal truth of The Simpsons: Our elites are telling us that our eroding collective circumstances are our own fault, and we can't do anything about it, while they steal the American Dream from us. It is, for lack of a more elegant word, brainwashing.

—Lastly, we string these major discoveries together: Cryptocurrency is an economic doomsday device; our government is a secret kleptocracy; The Simpsons exists to brainwash us. From there, the only research we need is critical thinking and we're able to piece together the true story of our circumstances.

Consider America since 1988: Institutions like healthcare and universities have become parasitic in their skyrocketing prices. News media tells us to be angry and tribalized. Daytime television warns us of moral decay. Local news tell us to fear our neighbors. The Simpsons tells us we're too oafish and divided to save the American Dream. Seinfeld tells us to celebrate the assholes and be irritated by all the normal people around us. “Reality” TV tells us that real life is filled with hedonism and strife.

Social media, owned by crypto criminals like Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk, is flooded with nonsense conspiracy theories and memes reminding us that we are hopeless, helpless, anxious, depressed, ironic, scared, apathetic, escapist, lonely, misguided, and jaded, telling us we can't do anything but have a laugh at our circumstances.

Liberals mock the hypocrisy of conservatives; conservatives mock the hypocrisy of liberals, and our collective circumstances erode. The left shouts “All Cops Are Bastards,” which ensures they'll be hated by the police and the public (and flies in the face of leftist theory). The public's distrust of the government is at an all-time high, but so is the belief that we are helpless to do anything about it.

And with all this, a sharp rise in apocalyptic messaging: Climate change will kill us all; COVID will kill us all; vaccines will kill us all; AI will kill us all – no matter the bubbles we ascribe to, we're bombarded with existential crises with no solutions. We've seen a surge in apocalyptic film, literature, and video games that tell us there is no way out of our poor circumstances but total societal breakdown. Zombies tell us that the public is our enemy. If you go to your nearest convenience store, you can buy a can of water called “Liquid Death.”

This is our rotten farce: For our entire lives, we have been flooded with media designed to slowly steer us into a world where the American Dream was dead, where the public was fully divided against itself, where everybody believed we were powerless to do anything about our worsening circumstances. It is all so they can organize an unprecedented, apocalyptic rug pull on the entire populace as they pivot to fascism, which is perhaps best understood as kleptocracy at the barrel of a gun.

When we piece it all together, we understand the truth: We are in a totalitarian doomsday cult.

Why on earth would our elites do this? There are many reasons, but the simplest is because capitalism is unsustainable, and they knew it: Climate change and resource extraction would catch up eventually. So, they never intended to sustain it. They knew all along that they would gobble up all the wealth they could, and then yank the rug out from under us so they could pivot to a hellish fascist dystopia.

—Things escalated wildly in 1988 when former CIA Director George H.W. Bush got the White House, but this plan had been in action long prior:

Why is Stanley Kubrick's comedy about mutually assured destruction called Dr. Strangelove: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb? Because he was a cocky secret fascist who was getting us to stop worrying and love the bomb. Why did he make A Clockwork Orange? So we'd rejoice at ultra-violence designed to desensitize us to the horrors of the world.

Why were the Manson Family murders crawling with cover-ups and intelligence agents? Because our government wanted to make us fear for our lives and believe that hippies are deranged psychopaths.

Why did Walt Disney produce a fraudulent documentary that told us Lemmings follow each other off cliffs? So we would believe it.

Why did The Beatles tell us to fear the taxman, to scoff at revolution, chase nonsense conspiracy theories, and that happiness is a warm gun? So we would believe it.

Why did Easy Rider tell us that the hippie movement was dead? So we would believe it.

Why did Chinatown end with defeatism in the face of massive corruption? So we would believe it.

Why did George Orwell tell us of a hellish future of totalitarian control that we are powerless to stop? So we would believe it.

Why did Wall Street tell us “greed is good”? So we would believe it.

Why did Do The Right Thing tell us we're all racially tribalized? So we would believe it.

Why did Simpsons creator Matt Groening make a comic strip called Life in Hell? So we would believe it.

And on, and on, and on, and on. When it comes to any popular media, if you ask yourself the question, “Why would secret doomsday cult kleptocrats want the public to consume this?”, you will find your answers.

—This is obviously very bad news, but the biggest lie we've been told is that we are powerless. We've got one way out of hellworld, and that's for the public to realize that we've been conned completely so we can build a united movement that shatters every lie they've told us, mocks this rotten farce as loudly as it deserves, and aims at nothing short of abolishing our criminal government so we can build one that serves the public.

To understand this story is to see right through the con, to become immune to the endless sea of criminal propaganda, and to feel the great joy and power that comes with freedom.

If a small number of people quickly put on these truth-colored glasses, we are in for an unimaginably bright future. If not, we get an apocalypse.

For more information, I've put together this booklet that includes other major findings and a map to a sea of proof, along with all the other essays on this site.

For the true history of America since the end of World War II, see here.

To see this discovery unfold in real-time, along with further explanations, hundreds of pieces of evidence not covered here, advice, inspiration, political theory, and the heart and soul of a man escaping history's largest doomsday cult, see my Instagram story highlights. I apologize for leaving things so scattered, but this has been an exhausting affair. So long as you understand this (true) ideology, you will be able to learn the whole story.

Here is a federal lawsuit I filed against dozens of perpetrators of the cryptocurrency Ponzi – not for litigation, but just to preserve the information and attach my name to it. I was terrified and hadn't slept in days and it shows, but it served its purpose of keeping myself alive long enough to keep learning and telling this story.

I no longer have my original research files from the crypto rabbit hole. If you want to see them, you'll have to get my laptop back from the government. Ask them how they got it - it's a very fun story.

I hope you know how powerful you are. I wish you a hell of a lot more than luck.

EFFORTPOST *TEEN WARNING* Junko Furuta's Murder

Junko Furuta was a Japanese schoolgirl who suffered 40 days of unimaginable torture at the hands of her classmates before dying on January 4th, 1989. After she rejected the school bully, Hiroshi Miyano, she was taken by 4 boys to the home of one of the kidnappers, Nobaharu Minato. All in all, over 100 people knew of her abduction; none did anything to help, and several joined in the torture. According to their statements in court, the four boys tortured Junko relentlessly, to such an extent that her face was so swollen she was virtually unrecognisable, she lost bladder control (and was beaten for wetting the carpet), and her body developed a rotting smell.

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/16835222582211688.webp


The torture included:

DAY 1: November 22, 1988: Kidnapped

Kept captive in house, and posed as one of boy’s girlfriend

Raped (over 400 times in total)

Forced to call her parents and tell them she had run away

Starved and malnutritioned

Fed cockroaches to eat and urine to drink

Forced to masturbate

Forced to strip in front of others

Burned with cigarette lighters

Foreign objects inserted into her vagina/anus

DAY 11: December 1, 1988: Severely beat up countless times

Face held against concrete ground and jumped on

Hands tied to ceiling and body used as a punching bag

Nose filled with so much blood that she can only breath through her mouth

Dumbbells dropped onto her stomach.

Vomited when tried to drink water (her stomach couldn’t accept it)

Tried to escape and punished by cigarette burning on arms

Flammable liquid poured on her feet and legs, then lit on fire

Bottle inserted into her anus, causing injury.

DAY 20: December10, 1989: Unable to walk properly due to severe leg burns

Beat with bamboo sticks

Fireworks inserted into anus and lit

Hands smashed by weights and fingernails kracked

Beaten with golf club

Cigarettes inserted into vagina

Beaten with iron rods repeatedly.

Winter; forced outside to sleep in balcony

Skewers of grilled chicken inserted into her vagina and anus, causing bleeding

And yet she’d almost escaped. One time she reached the telephone—but one of the boys caught her just in time and ended the call for help.

They punished her by taunting her with a candle flame and finally dousing her legs in lighter fluid and set her on fire, as punishment for trying to run away. She went into convulsions; the boys would later say that they thought she was faking the seizure.

They set her on fire again, then put it out. She survived this round.

DAY 30: Hot wax dripped onto face

Eyelids burned by cigarette lighter

Stabbed with sewing needles in chest area

Left nipple cut and destroyed with pliers

Hot light bulb inserted into her vagina

Heavy bleeding from vagina due to scissors insertion

Unable to urinate properly.

Injuries were so severe that it took over an hour for her to crawl downstairs and use the bathroom

Eardrums severely damaged

Extreme reduced brain size.

DAY 40: Begged her torturers to “kill her and get it over with”

January 1, 1989: Junko greets the New Years Day alone

Body mutilated

Unable to move from the ground.

This is just an account of the physical tortures she underwent, her emotional agonies we can not understand. She was treated worse than animals, worse than insects, worse than our wildest imaginations.


https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/16835222584538462.webp

Hiroshi was sentenced for 20 years, and the other main captors received 5–10 years each. Most of them were subsequently arrested again for various crimes, including rape and fraud. They were aged 17–18 at the time; Junko was 17. Had the captors been slightly older, they almost certainly would have received life imprisonment or the death penalty. The case is considered controversial due to their lenient sentences, and I can see why.

CHILD WARNING EFFORTPOST [CW] Beslan school siege - 52 hours of modern history :marseysoldierrussia: (7 vids, many photos)

Quick stats for TL;DR: 52 hours (1st to 3rd of September 2004), during which around 1200 people were held hostage, 344 civilians died (186 children) and more than 750 people were injured. I'll describe how it happened, as well as importance of that event. There's gore in photos and videos, there's something to read, and in the end - dead terrorists to warm your hearts.

Numbers are a bit questionable. As for early 2023, Beslan school siege is 7th deadliest terrorist attack. With 1st being WTC, places 2nd to 6th are occupied by either African or Middle Eastern incidents.



⠀⠀ATTACK :marseygunnut:

Here's short video on events unfolding. It shows both timeline (I'll just describe main events) and model of school, with all highlights.

1st of September 2004. Wednesday (national holiday)

School No. 1 was one of 7 schools in Beslan, town of about 35,000 population located in Republic of North Ossetia–Alania (south-western Russia; border with Georgia). Here school year of 2004 begun from terrorist attack.

Militants stormed and captured school during opening ceremony, at 9:00. They warned if security forces storm the building, they will blow up school and hostages. For every one of them killed, militants would kill 50 hostages. Kids were put in windows as "human shields" to prevent rescue operations. Few dead men (either teachers or fathers) were thrown out the window. Beslan was visited by Nikolai Patrushev (head of Federal Security Service, FSB) and Rashid Nurgaliyev (Interior Minister). Initial reports about 200 hostages were misinformation; in the evening, FSB official Valery Andreyev informed that there are nearly 300 hostages. Real number was only 'discovered' on the last day.

School was surrounded not only by military and police, but also some civilians - thanks to quite common firearms access. Here one with rifle:

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/16841395397896721.webp

This video was taken by terrorists themselves and shown in NTV.

In the evening, problems with food and water started. Militants didn't care about basic means of keeping hostages alive. Some kids were peeing on hands to drunk urine. Others went desperately hungry and ate plants from school bathroom, stocking some in underwear 'for later'. Some hostages had to stay in pools of urine. Sometimes crying babies annoyed captors to the point when they were taking them away from parents and bringing outside gym, not letting parents know their fate.


2nd of September 2004. Thursday

In the morning officials released 'updated' info on number of hostages, claiming there are around 400 schoolchildren inside. Former Ingushetia President, Ruslan Aushev, started talks with hostage takers.

25 hostages - 11 mothers and 14 children - were released. This was the only success - some kids escaped on first day, some were released on second. Not all mothers were allowed to take more than 1 kid. E.g. Zalina Zandrovna was forced to choose. She said it was beyond words, but one of kids had to live through it. 6 yo daughter was left inside afraid, Zandrovna get out to safety with 2 yo son. After the event, she found daughter alive - claiming that sole surviving terrorist let her go out alive, only suffering some burn injuries.

Here's another story, if you'd like to know more: https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-36378981 this time no happy end. There were 3 mothers forced to leave kids who later died - including woman interviewed for this article. Some were orphaned, and linked article also mentions such a case (mother refusing to leave - died with baby, but second kid survived).

Video published in 2006 by CBS, taken inside school. It shows e.g. freeing some hostages and bodies thrown outside the window - fathers, teachers.

Babies carried out on 2nd day:

3rd of September 2004. Friday

Automatic-weapon fire started near the school, followed by two explosions, at 6:27. It took around 10 hours until fighting stopped on 16:22. In the meantime, negotiators secured an agreement to recover some bodies of hostages and security troops. Group of hostages escaped, another was led out. On 19:16 presidential adviser Aslambek Aslakhanov acknowledged there were around 1200 hostages inside.

The end of this horrific standoff began with an explosion in the afternoon, 52 hours into the siege. "After the explosion, there was a pile of dead children's bodies, and then complete silence," says teacher Elena Kosumova, who was in charge of the opening day ceremonies at the school. She and her son, Timor, were held hostage during the siege.

Moments after the two explosions rocked the building, an enormous gun battle erupted. Special Forces snipers started picking off the terrorists. "They just opened fire," says Beliakov. "They started firing at school." It took nearly 10 hours before all the shooting stopped.

Teacher Elena Kosumova (pictured) was separated from her son, Timor. "I saw a lot of children climbing over the windowsill. That gave me the idea to escape through the window," she says. "The first people I saw were two men from our town. They were armed. One told me to run over to him. He helped me cross back to safety."

Here is Elema Kosumova and her son Timor. (whole photorelation: https://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/tragedy-in-beslan-2/)

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/16841395431614385.webp

There are many photos of the escapees, but not especially gory. Many of children were at least partially without clothes. This is both because of hot temperature (in general at this time of the year), just worsening when crowded at the gym, and because of stripping down to avoid burns.

I'll include only one terrorist here - rest goes for aftermath. Among 32 assailants were two women. 31 died (at least one - lynched), and one surviving was Nur-Pashi Kulaev. He got a life sentence on 26th of May, 2006. His naked ass photo kinda caught my attention, not matching other tragic photos. Here's what happened:

One militant was dragged from the building, his trousers pulled from his waist. Once the locals checked he was circumcised (and therefore, by their logic, Muslim, and hence a gunman), they beat him to a pulp and left his body in the back of a truck.

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/16841395536061916.webp

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/16841395544290519.webp

It took the mob longer to realize Kulaev is one of militants because he hid under a truck - like many civilians during shooting - and instead of uniform wore tracksuit and sneakers. He claimed that he 'personally' didn't kill anyone, just was part of the group, and he wants to live. At least that's what was written in http://pravda.ru, and few other Russian sources. Later in court, Kulaev stated that he also wasn't aware they were attacking school, and tried to shoot into the air. Formally, he was responsible for some deaths or injuries. Opinions among victims' families or other impacted by attack were divided. Some wanted Kulaev dead, and he only didn't end up executed because of moratorium on death penalty. Others pointed out - and I agree with them - than instead of focusing on sentences for terrorists and details of their crimes, gov should focus on why did they fail on multiple levels. Quoting FoxNews:

The group said investigators had not probed who was responsible for a chain of alleged errors: the failure to take security measures in spite of a heightened danger of terrorist attacks, the refusal to negotiate with the hostage-takers, underreporting the number of hostages involved early in the crisis, the lack of preparation for storming the school, the unpreparedness of the rescue services and the "uncontrolled use of tanks, flame-throwers, grenade-launchers and other weapons."

30 seconds long video from Ogrish, to bring classic content back. Notice civilians, helping military and police on 3rd day, too.

Here two parts of hostage children running away video (around 4;30 and 5;20 mins long). It ends after 13;17 local time.

I didn't search for any subtitles, not sure if you're interested. In second video, that boy who talks to cameraman around 2;10 says they were held four days without water. The second one, screaming in the background, asks where's water.



⠀⠀AFTERMATH (both victims and terrorists)

10 minutes long video showing searching through debris (we had it, but now it's unwatermarked, just shorter version).

I can barely understand Russian, so don't get many of their conversation. They both just comment on type of victims - the age or gender - and on what some scenes tell about the terrorists. Around 4;30, they comment on two corpses here (man is elder PE teacher, Ivan Kanidi). Assailants had no mercy on men and women (previously they mostly talked about kids), and even barricaded windows. Around 5;24-5;36, they note that despite there's tap water being available, hostages were left dying. 7;45 - explosives found on woman's corpse ('shahid belt'). 8;55 - unexploded grenade.

It's just a part of longer footage, at least partially (didn't check all) on YouTube - search for Beslan, 4.09.2004, survey of school. Here's https://watchpeopledie.tv/h/aftermath/post/12143/child-warning-beslan-siege-aftermath some missing part, from 7;10 onwards. Still, you can see timeskips. Few stillshots, some had comments.

One of terrorists, explosives intact:

It'd be really hard to put all photos here. So if you wish to see more gore pics (especially all of you who 'are bored and have seen all content here'): here you go http://www.reyndar.org/~reyndar1/1/Thumbnails.html Various aftermath photos.


Here's explanation of aftermath I really like (autotranslated, so a bit weird):

What else? Officials made idiotic statements, the media gave idiotic comments and reports, relatives of the victims howled with grief and tore their hair, relatives of the wounded - rejoiced that they had found their living. The country was in shock. Putin spoke on TV. Zakayev was giving out an interview from London and telling that Maskhadov was good, and Putin was bad.

And what about numbers?

The number of people who were held hostage is also unknown. The latest data –1,200 people – was delivered by Vladimir Ustinov, although a day earlier it had been reported that 1 181 people had been taken hostage. According to Ustinov, as a result of the terrorist attack, 326 people died, although the number of 335 was previously reported for several days.

It's from article Report on Russian media coverage of the Beslan tragedy: Access to information and journalists’ working conditions. Here's abstract.

The coverage of the events has proven that media freedom had taken hold in Russia. However, several worrisome developments in the relationship between the government and the media drew the attention of local and international experts and human rights activists. Cases of detention and harassment of journalists occurred, seriously impeding their work.

Even more importantly, the government did not provide in a timely manner truthful information on the handling of the crisis:

  • How many people were taken hostage;

  • What was the number of hostage takers;

  • Who were they;

  • What were their demands.

As a result, journalists were physically attacked in Beslan for allegedly misinforming the public. A triple credibility gap arose, between the government and the media, between the media and the citizens, and between the government and the people. This is a serious drawback for a democracy.

The main sources of information for the Russian people are the three nationwide broadcasters. Unfortunately, they did not provide accurate and up-to-date information. In the end, the print media and Internet news sites stepped in, filling the information void as much as they could.



I didn't link every source, because of e.g. not exactly knowing about Russian sources affiliations. And there's already enough text.

EFFORTPOST Introducing... WPDmap!

LINK TO THE MAP HERE: https://u.osmfr.org/m/1027433/

Anyways, me, @sog, @Slavo, and @water have been working on a map. A map, of DEATH! :marseyexcited:

Here's the gist: each flair gets its own symbol and color. The pin indicates where the video took place. The square pins are the general location (usually the street/neighborhood), the upside-down droplets are exact.

To search for a specific video without panning through the map, all you need to know is either the country or date in which it happened (date is more specific, so go with that if you can). On the left-hand side is an icon that looks like three square tiles, click it and then hit "Browse data" to enter search. Just type in the country name or the month + year when it happened, and you'll be able to quickly find your video. To get the coordinates, zoom in as much as you can and center your screen on the video you want. They'll be in the URL.

Hitting the three square tile icon also allows you to filter by category. Just hit the eye next to whichever categories you don't want to see to filter them out.

For each video, we've selected the highest-quality post out there to represent it. This means no retarded, unnecessary watermarks or blurry footage! :marseythumbsup: We also added thumbnails, but I think if a lot of you access the site at once, it overloads the system and they won't display. So they might be broken for the next day or two. Sorry about that!

Some notable spots with a very high density of videos include Ecuador, Poland, Trinidad & Tobago, NYC, and Chicago. And not only did I post a dashcam for every Russian territory, we geolocated them all as well.

NOTE: There's no "child warning" in any titles. If they're underage, we usually state the age in the title, but not always. Also no "+ aftermath", "multiple POVs", etc.


FAQ:

Q: Can you add [video] to the map?

A: If you've already geolocated it, yes! Otherwise, only if one of us feels like it.

Q: Can I help out?

A: If you're at least semi-active on this site and you're actually interested in this, yes! We obviously vet who gets let in but that's the basic requirements.

Q: Why do this?

A: We have severe autism. Not even memeing here, just the truth. It also allows us to collect the highest-quality versions of videos in one easily-accessible place, but mostly autism.


To close out, here's where a few famous videos took place!

Aaron Bushnell's self-immolation: Google Street View

The Buffalo shooting: Google Street View

Itzdolly's suicide: Google Street View (yes, that's the exact tree)

Bollard ass-impaling: Google Street View

Mississippi store clerk complies with robber, gets shot in the head anyways: Google Street View

CHILD WARNING EFFORTPOST 40 days of agony. THE TORTURE OF JUNKO FURUTA

junko furuta was a 17 year old high school student subject to rape torture and eventually, murder.

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17103679789764102.webp

the names you need to know.

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17103679788611405.webp

junko furuta was a normal 17 year old high school student. she didn't smoke, drink or go to parties. she studied hard and was considered a good student by her classmates.

it was on 25 November 1988 that Hiroshi Miyano and Nobuharu Minato (highschool dropouts) wandered around Misato with the intention of robbing and raping local women.

At 8 p.m., they spotted junko furuta riding her bike home after she had finished a shift at her job.

under Miyano's orders, Minato kicked Furuta off her bike.

After Minato left the scene, Miyano, approached Junko and told her: “The person who just kicked you off is crazy, he also threatened me with a knife earlier. It's dangerous so I will bring you home.”

Upon gaining her trust, he took her to a nearby warehouse and threatened her with a knife, saying: “I'm a member of the yakuza. if you don't do what i say, i'll kill you ! Let me have sex with you!” He also threatened to kill her if she raises her voice.

Then, he raped her in the warehouse and took her to a nearby love hotel, where he raped her as well.

From the love hotel, Minato called his other friends Jo Ogura, Nobuharu Minato and Yasushi Watanabe and met at a park. He bragged about the rape. Jo repeatedly asked Miyano not to send the girl home in order to permit other people, including himself, to rape her. Minato agreed to keep her in his house.


the torture

After they brought her to Minato's room, the boys took turns monitoring the girl. On 28th November, the boys invited their friends over to the house (Tetsuo Nakamura and Koichi Ihara) to let them gang rape her. The boys had consumed methamphetamine and pretended to be high. Then, they held the girl down and covered her mouth who tried to resist desperately. Miyano told the other boys to strip naked and to gang-rape her. Then they did gang-rape her. At that time, Miyano took out a razor blade and shaved the girl's pubic hair, then inserted the shaft of a match into her pubic region and set it on fire. The boys laughed and were amused seeing the girl being heated by the fire. Koichi Ihara described her eyes as “vacant” during the rape, so she must've fell into a state of unconsciousness.

The torture began when Junko tried to contact the police in early December. This was about one week in her captivity. They began beating her up and Miyano set her ankles on fire.

According to the culprits, they repeatedly raped her and invited other boys and men to rape her. It's uncertain how many times she was raped. it is believed that the times she was raped is a two or even three digit number. The prosecution found out that 8-9 men have raped Furuta. The four culprits, (Minato's brother), Tetsuo and Koichi and two friends of Miyano or Minato were involved in the rape. Keep in mind that these were the only people that they could determine, the number could still be higher. However, it was not 100 people who raped her. There was also a girl that drew a beard on Junko's face. Three other people have seen and met junko, but no further names can be found. in conclusion, it was 13 people who have seen and met Junko (+ Minato's parents) and 8-9 of them have raped her. They have also forced her to masturbate in front of them.

The culprits forced her to strip naked and dance to disco music and would repeatedly kick her during that.

Junko asked them to let her go several times. She would beg them to release her and promised not to contact the police.

They would also mentally abuse her by telling her that her father died in an accident.

She was disconnected from the outside and couldn't know what was going on outside the room she was confined in. the boys repeatedly said to Junko throughout her confinement that her father was dead. Then they'd say “No, your father is alive…”. She didn't know if her father was death or alive.

Koichi stated that he was present during the torture many times. Her bruises would get worse and worse any time he was in the room. They would call her “Bitch! Bitch! Bitch!” while beating her. She would say “Gomenasai. Gomenasai. (I am sorry)” repeatedly when they did so. He also reported that she would tell herself "gambare”, which means “Keep going” “Hang in there” or “Don't give up”.

According to the court documents, they inserted an iron rod in her vagina and repeatedly moved it in and out. The culprits also inserted a glass bottle in her anus. They would force her to inhale paint thinner, drink whiskey and shochu or smoke multiple cigarettes at once. They also left her on the balcony with little to no clothing during the cold winter days. A beard was drawn on Junko's face with a marker, as well.

In the middle or end of December, Jo and Minato would beat her face so badly that it swole up and was deformed. The culprits laughed and said “You have a big face”. Minato told Jo that “It's so funny, I'll have it Miyano see it too!”. The next day, he proudly showed Boy Miyano what he did with Junko Furuta's face. Miyano was surprised at seeing the deformed and swollen face but got inspired to pour volatile oil on her thighs and hands and ignited them with a lighter. After the fire was extinguished, he repeatedly burned Furuta, who then suffered severe burns. Around this time, Junko was unable to endure the assaults so she begged them to “just kill me already!”.

Minato's brother was responsible for “taking care” of Furuta. He would bring her food in the beginning of the confinement but during the end of December, she was only fed a small amount of milk. She was severely malnourished and had gotten extremely weak.

In the end of December, Furuta's appearance was drastically changed by the assaults of the culprits. Her face was so swollen to the point it was deformed. It was difficult to make out her facial features. Her infected burns and wounds gave off a rotting smell. She couldn't even go downstairs to use the bathroom, so she would lie all day in the room. They would leave her alone in the room during New Year's Eve while Minato's family had other families visiting them downstairs.


the last days

On the night of the 3rd January to 4th, Miyano lost a mahjong game to another person and lost a lot of money. He went to Yasushi 's house where Minato, Jo and Yasushi were present. Angry at the situation, he had the plan to let out his frustration on Furuta: “Let's go bully her for the first time in a while." he said.

Then, they went to Minato 's house at around 08:00 am on 4th January 1989.

When the four boys entered the room, they gave Junko the Ogura yokan and asked her if she wanted to eat it. She then ate it.

After eating, Jo asked: “What's this?”

-Junko: “This is Ogura yokan.”

-Jo: “Don't call me without ‘san' (Mr.)”

Jo ogura was mad because she called him without an honorific suffix (“san”) which is rude to do in Japan. “San” is used to show respect.

Junko: “I am sorry.” “This is Ogura yokan san.”

Jo: “Why did you call the food Ogura yokan san.” “Yokan is food.” “Yokan is not a man.”

He was just making fun of her. Whatever Junko answered, she would've gotten beaten up and tortured anyway. During her days of confinement, they always asked her questions that were impossible to answer because no matter what answer she gave, they would still beat and torture her.

Minato , Jo and Miyano then started to punch her in the face and kicked her back with their feet. They lit candles Miyano brought and poured wax on her face, covering her entire face with it and leaving two lit candles on her eyelids. Junko didn't show any reaction to the beatings and burnings.

Yasushi joined the room when he was called by the other boys. Junko, who urinated in the room because she was too weak to go to the toilet, was forced to drink her own urine in a packet with a straw.

Then, Jo and Minato repeatedly kicked her and whenever she fell down, they forced her up and kicked her again. She was unable to defend herself and unexpectedly fell and hit the stereo in the room that caused her to have a seizure.

The boys were aware that she could die if they continued to beat and torture her. However, they still continued to beat her so badly that she bled from her nose and mouth. blood and pus that came out from the burnt wounds splashed in the room.

Yasushi wrapped his hands in plastic bags in order to continue to beat her. He hit her shoulders and abdomen a few times before the other boys copied his doing and joined in to hit her in her abdomen, thighs and other parts of her body. They dropped an iron ball that weighed around 1.74kg onto her thighs several times from about a 1-1.5m height. Miyano set her on fire again pouring volatile oil on her and litting the fire with a lighter.

At first, Junko tried to put out the fire with a weak hand gesture but gradually became unresponsive. She became limp and layed on the side.

Boy A asked her if she was okay, and her last words were "Kurushii desu" ( I am feeling pain. ).

This attack went on for two hours, from 08:00 am until 10:00 am. when eventually, Junko Furuta passed away after a heart attack.


disposing of the body

Fearing that the crime would be discovered, Miyano wrapped her body in a large travel bag and wrapped it with duct tape. The bag in which her body was disposed of was placed in a drum. This drum was filled with concrete and blocks and bricks were poured into the drum to fix it in place. The drum was then covered with a black plastic garbage bag and sealed with gummed tape.

Miyano, Jo and Minato dumped the drum at an empty lot next to a construction site in Koto-Ku, Tokyo, at around 08:00 pm.

the searching for a alive junko

people are asking why the parents of Junko Furuta didn't do a lot to find their daughter who went missing. That's not true. They contacted the police on 27th of November 1988 to report their daughter's disappearance. Mr. Noguchi, who was the vice principal of Furuta's school, answered in an interview that the parents came to the school and reported their daughter missing on the 26th November 1988. According to him, they looked so tired and said they had no idea about her disappearance. The reporter says: “School, police and her family tried to find her but they couldn't.” Mr. Furuta took a day off from his work to try to find her. He was a manager at a Japanese electric company and taking days off as a salaryman was difficult. Her boyfriend also grew worried when she went missing and had a phone call with Junko's mother. He had also tried to find her by himself.

junko was forced to call her parents three times and convince them she was safe and stayed with a friend. She was also forced to stop the police investigation.

The weekly Bunshun magazine of April 13th 1989 showed the dialogue of the last call between Furuta and her mother:

>Mother: Where are you? Police officers are seriously looking for you!

>Junko; I was not kidnapped. Why did you report me missing to the police? I will return home soon. I am at my friend's home. please help me !

The culprits ended the phone call. These were her last words to her mother. I think the reason why we don't know a lot about her family, friends and the police searching for her is because Furuta's family didn't like the publicity at all. They just wanted to “move on” from what had happened and never really gave interviews about how they felt when she went missing and how intensely they searched for her.


Many people ask why Furuta didn't just run away. When she was kidnapped, Miyano told her that the yakuza targeted her and her family so he would hide her. He told her that the yakuza would burn her family home down and kill her family if she dared to run away. What Junko couldn't know was that they were just bluffing. She never was targeted by the yakuza. However, the boys spoke in yakuza manners and acted like yakuza, so she must've believed what they said and was terrified.


running away or calling the cops ?

why Furuta didn't just run away ? When she was kidnapped, Miyano told her that the yakuza targeted her and her family so he would hide her. He told her that the yakuza would burn her family home down and kill her family if she dared to run away. What Junko couldn't know was that they were just bluffing. She never was targeted by the yakuza. However, the boys spoke in yakuza manners and acted like yakuza, so she must've believed what they said and was terrified.

how could Minato's parents just tolerate their son kidnapping and torturing an innocent girl. Minato's mother, Mrs Minato, met Junko a few times. When she first met her, she tried to send Junko home but the boys wouldn't let Junko leave. She asked her husband to do something about it but he just didn't. The next morning, Mrs. Minato asked her son where Junko was and he said that she went home.

After a week or so, Mrs. Minato found sanitary products in the trash can and noticed she was still there. She spoke with Furuta and asked her why she was here and what her name was. However, Junko was so intimidated by the boys presence that she couldn't say anything. Mrs. Minato believed that Junko ran away from home and was friends with the boys.

A few days into her captivity, Junko and Yasushi went downstairs to eat dinner with Mrs. Minato and Shinji Minato. After dinner, they played video games while Mrs. Minato did the dishes. Minato said: “Are you going home? I miss you! Tell me your number!” to Junko in order to deceive Mrs. Minato. He wanted her to believe that Junko went home. However, Shinji forced her upstairs to the room. Her shoes were put in the room and not outside of the room so they actively tried to hide her from the parents.

However, Mrs. Minato found out and tried to send Junko home but Junko couldn't do anything without the culprits' instructions. She was too scared. Mr. and Mrs. Minato's job was to call the police, which they didn't do.

Mrs. Minato found a notebook in Furuta's bag and found the phone number of her mother. She called the mother at Ogura's grandmother's place and asked her if she has a daughter called Junko Furuta and when her mother replied with “Yes”, she hung up. She used a fake name to introduce herself (Mrs. Doe from Ayase District, Tokyo). Furuta‘s parents called all Mr. or Mrs. Does so they could finally find their daughter. Mrs. Minato went back home and wanted to send her home by bus or taxi, but Jo Ogura convinced her he would bring her home.

He waited outside with Junko for Miyano to tell him what to do (since Miyano is the leader of the group) and when he didn't show up, they just brought her back in while the parents of Boy C were sleeping. When Boy C found out she (the mother) had kicked Junko out, he beat her up while his father was present. Mr. Minato apparently was an alcoholic and didn't really care what was going on.

They might've had the plan to send her home but they didn't. Instead, they continued to rape and torture her for 40 days until she eventually passed away. Minato's parents didn't call the police while it was their job to do so. They must've heard or seen something in the 40 days she was kidnapped. there is no way they didn't know about this.


misconceptions:

-Junko Furuta did not know her culprits. Miyano did NOT ask her out. In reality, all of them were highschool dropouts that lived in a different city than her. They were criminals that robbed and raped several women before they kidnapped Junko Furuta. Miyano had a girlfriend back then who was Yasushi's sister.

-that she won mahjong against them. False. Miyano lost against someone else and lost money so he took his anger out on Junko. Junko was extremely malnourished and weak, and probably didn‘t know or had the strength to play.

-that she was held captive 44 days. It was 40. the torture escalated one week into her captivity when she tried to contact the police.


trivia:

after school work

After school, she worked part-time at a plastic molding factory to save up money for a graduation trip she had planned. Furuta planned to work at an electronics retailer after her graduation. She was less than 5 months away from graduating school at that time. Her dream was to become an idol singer one day.

boyfriend

junko had a boyfriend at the time. her boyfriend's pseudonym was Kawamura. He was 23 years old at that time and worked as a construction worker. He and Junko met through a mutual friend in 1987 and started dating.On Valentine's Day (February 1988), Junko gifted him homemade chocolate which is a tradition in Japan. He gifted her an 18K gold necklace she wore dutifully.

kawaii smile

in the summer of 1988, Junko, Kawamura and their friends went on a beach trip. A photo was taken during the trip. It was published in a Japanese magazine. On the right, it says “this kawaii smile will never return!”.

junko's life

Junko was described as very kind, as she would bring her friend's families a gift as a token of appreciation. She grew up in a healthy family and was known to be a family lover who always helped her mother with housework. She would always greet her neighbors politely. Her hobbies were baking and knitting. Her boyfriend said that she baked him a cheesecake he found delicious. She was not a delinquent or a bad girl, as some of the media said.

CHILD WARNING EFFORTPOST Massive Columbine Write Up

Columbine High School resides in Littelton, Colorado. The school was founded in 1973. It was named after the surrounding community of Columbine, which in turn was named after the state flower of Colorado: the columbine. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/1711648663855703.webp Columbine was the site of one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S History (12 killed) until it was surpassed by the Virginia Tech shooting on April 16, 2007 where 33 would be killed.

══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════

The Columbine Shooting happened on April 20. 1999 lasting from 11:19am-12:08pm. Including the perpetrators, 15 people would lose their lives and 24 would be injured. The motive for this attack is described to be "Inconclusive."

══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════

Eric Harris: https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/1711650142669697.webp

Eric Harris was born on April 9, 1981 in Wichita, Kansas. He was part of a military family so he was moved around alot. They moved from New York to Littleton, Colorado in July 1993 once his father had retired from the U.S Air Force.

In an English paper in 1997 he wrote how difficult it was to move from New York to Colorado. "It was the hardest moving from Plattsburgh. I have the most memories from there", Harris continued. "When I left (his friends) I felt alone, lost and even agitated that I had spent so much time with them and now I have to go because of something I can't stop." Harris blamed his dad for moving around having him to "start at the bottom of the ladder." Harris entered Columbine in 1995 as a Freshman. It was said he had many friends. Some described Harris as Charismatic and other said nice and likeable. In his Freshman year he met Tiffany Typher in German class. She recounted how Harris quickly wooed her and they ended up going to Homecoming together .

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116501427594767.webp

After the event she wanted nothing to do with him for reasons unknown. She refused to socialize with him which is then when he faked his suicide. He was sprawled out on the ground with fake blood. When she saw she screamed and called for help at which point Harris and friends started laughing.

By his Junior year he was known to be quick to anger and threatened people with bombs. Harris often bragged about his ability to deceive people and has also written violent fantasies about killing people he doesn't like.

══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════

Dylan Klebold: https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116509883805223.webp

Dylan Klebold was born Sept 11, 1981 in Lakewood, Colorado. On the day after the shooting, Klebold's mother remembered that shortly after Klebold's birth, she described what felt like a shadow cast over her, warning her that this child would bring her great sorrow.

Klebold attended Normandy Elementary School for first and second grade and then transferred to Governor's Ranch Elementary School where he was part of the Challenging High Intellectual Potential Students program for gifted children. According to report's. Klebold was an exceptionally bright child, although he appeared somewhat sheltered in Elementary School.

When he transitioned to Ken Caryl Middle School, he found it difficult. Fellow classmates recalled Klebold being painfully shy and quiet, often to an uncomfortable degree. He was fidgety whenever someone new talked to him rarely opening up to people. His parent's were unconcerned with this behavior as they assumed it was just regular behavior among young adolescents.

During his earlier school years he played Baseball, Soccer and T-ball. He was also in Cub Scouts where he would met Brooks Brown. Klebold and Brown rode the same bus as Harris which is how Klebold and Harris quickly became best friends. They also both worked together as cooks at Blackjack Pizza.

In the last year of his life he changed. People noted him being short-tempered and prone to sudden outbursts of rage.

══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════

FRIENDSHIP:

Much information is unknown other then their interactions in the Basement Tapes.

Thye first met in 7th grade and over time they became increasingly close. Hanging out going bowling, carpooling and playing the video game Doom.

By Junior year they were described as inseparable. It was also said that they always sat alone together during lunch and kept to themselves.

══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════

CRIMINAL ACTIVITY:

On the night of January 30, 1998, Harris and Klebold broke into a locked van to steal computers and other electronic equipment. A short while after a Jefferson County sheriff's officer drove upon the two boys parked further down road at another park entrance and since the park area was closed by that time of night, the arresting deputy decided to further inspect them.

They were later charged with mischief, breaking and entering, trespassing, and theft.

They both left good impressions on juvenile officers, who offered to expunge their criminal records if they agreed to attend a diversionary program which included community service and psychiatric treatment. Harris was required to attend anger management classes where, again, he made a favorable impression.

The boys' probation officer discharged them from the program a few months ahead of schedule for good behavior. Regarding Harris, it was remarked that he was "a very bright individual who is likely to succeed in life", while Klebold was said to be intelligent, but "needs to understand that hard work is part of fulfilling a dream."

Several months later on April 30, Harris handed over the first version of a letter of apology he wrote to the owner of the van, which he completed the next month.

In the letter, Harris expressed regret about his actions; however, in one of his journal entries dated April 12, he wrote: "Isn't america supposed to be the land of the free? how come, If im free, I cant deprive some fucking dumbshit from his possessions If he leaves them sitting in the front seat of his fucking van in plain sight in the middle of fucking nowhere on a fri-fucking-day night? Natural selection. Fucker should be shot.

══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════

BULLYING:

Early stories following the massacre charged that school administrators and teachers at Columbine had long condoned bullying by jocks and this explained the motive. According to early accounts of the shooting, they were very unpopular students and targets of bullying. A rumor eventually started that Harris and Klebold were gay and romantically involved, due to the time the pair spent together. It is unknown if they were aware of this rumor. Harris and Klebold were regularly called "Cute twinks" Dylan when talking to his father about the jocks had stated, "They sure give Eric hell." but he also said that the jocks tended to leave him [Dylan] alone.

Eric had a chest deformity known as Pectus Excavatum. This made him reluctant to take his shirt off during Gym Class and other students would make fun of him for it. Nathan Vanderau, a friend of Klebold, and Alisa Owen, who knew Harris, noted they were picked on. Vanderau recalled that a "cup of fecal matter" was thrown at them.

One day it was alleged that they were both confronted by student's who sprayed them with Ketchup while referring to them as "Cute twinks" and "Queers." Klebold told his mother that it was the worst day of his life. According to Brown, "That happened while teachers watched. They couldn't fight back. They wore the ketchup all day and went home covered with it."

WAS THE MOTIVE REALLY BULLYING??

Dave Cullen, an American journalist and non-fiction writer and Author of Columbine published in 2009, as well as psychologists dispute the theory of "revenge for bullying" as a motivation. Cullen claimed they were NOT victims of bullying. He noted Harris was more often the perpetrator than victim of bullying.

An entry is Eric's journal he stated that even if he were complimented and respected more by his peers, the attack would've still, in all likelihood, occurred. In another entry he even said to not blame the administration of the school for the attack for they were doing a great job running the school. many other researchers have also argued against the bullying hypothesis

WHAT ABOUT ISOLATION??

Rejection was also highlighted as a cause. Social cliques within high schools such as the Trench Coat Mafia https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116550202984.webp

were widely discussed. One perception formed was that Harris and Klebold were both outcasts who had been isolated from their classmates, prompting feelings of helplessness, insecurity, and depression, as well as a strong need for power and attention.

This concept too has been questioned, as both Harris and Klebold had a close circle of friends and a wider informal social group. Other close friends of the pair such as Chad Laughlin and Nathan Dykeman state the duo were not outcasts.

FBI'S THEORY:

FBI has concluded that they both had mental illness. Eric was a clinical psychopath and Dylan had depression.

Dwayne Fuselier, the supervisor in charge of the Columbine investigation, would later remark: "I believe Eric went to the school to kill and didn't care if he died, while Dylan wanted to die and didn't care if others died as well."

In April 1998, a year prior to the attack, as part of his diversion program, Harris wrote a letter of apology to the owner of the van he and Klebold broke into earlier that year. Around the same time, he derided the owner of the van in his journal, stating that he believed he had the right to steal something if he wanted to.

The theme in Klebold's journals is his wish for suicide and private despair at his lack of success with women, which he refers to as an "infinite sadness". Klebold had repeatedly documented his desires to kill himself, and his final remark in the Basement Tapes, shortly before the attack, is a resigned statement made as he glances away from the camera: "Just know I'm going to a better place. I didn't like life too much."

This theory has been met with criticism. Critics cite the fact that Klebold, not Harris, was the first to mention a killing spree in his journal. They also cite evidence that Harris was depressed as well, such as his prescription for antidepressants. Opponents of contemporary psychiatry like Peter Breggin claim that the psychiatric medications prescribed to Harris may have exacerbated his aggressiveness. Harris had complained of depression, anger, and suicidal thoughts, for which he was prescribed antidepressants. Toxicology reports confirmed that Harris had Luvox in his bloodstream at the time of the shootings, whereas Klebold had no medications in his system. Harris continued his scheduled meetings with his psychologist until a few months before the massacre.

WEAPONS USED:

https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/1711655682227845.webp

Harris had a Hi-Point 995 Carbine with thirteen 10-round magazines and a Savage-Springfield 67H pump-action shotgun.

Klebold used a 9mm Intratec TEC-9 semi-automatic handgun with one 52-, one 32-, and one 28-round magazine and a Stevens 311D double-barreled shotgun.

Harris's shotgun was sawed-off to around 26 inches (0.66 m) and Klebold shortened his shotgun's length to 23 inches (0.58 m), a felony under the National Firearms Act.

Through Philip Duran, one of their coworkers, Klebold bought a TEC-9 handgun from Mark Manes for $500 at another gun show on January 23.

After the massacre, Manes and Duran were both prosecuted. Each was charged with supplying a handgun to a minor and possession of a sawed-off shotgun. Manes and Duran were sentenced to a total of six years and four-and-a-half years, respectively, in prison.

Including firearms there were also explosives. Harris and Klebold constructed a total of 99 bombs.

These included pipe bombs, carbon-dioxide cartridges filled with gunpowder (called "crickets"), Molotov cocktails, and propane tanks converted to bombs. The propane bombs were used in the cafeteria, the shooters' cars, and in another location intended as a diversion.

Harris also experimented with napalm, and envisioned a kind of backpack and flamethrower. They both attempted to get another friend and coworker, Chris Morris, who was a part of the Trench Coat Mafia, to keep the napalm at his house, but he refused. Harris also tried to recruit him to be a third shooter but played it off as a joke when rebuked.

Harris and Klebold were both equipped with knives, but investigators do not believe they ever utilized them during the massacre. Harris had a boot knife on his belt and a "Khyber-pass" machete bowie knife taped to the back of his ankle. Both had an "R", referencing Harris's alias "REB", etched into the handle, and the machete had a swastika on the sheath. Klebold had a "Cobra" knife mounted to his belt on the left side as well as a switchblade in his right pocket.

══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════

On Tuesday morning, April 20, 1999, Harris and Klebold placed two duffel bags in the cafeteria. Each bag contained propane bombs, set to detonate during the "A" lunch shift, which began at 11:15 a.m.

No one recalls seeing them do this and was thought to be believed that there was a tape change around this time.

But in the video below ↓ from Reddit you can see where they were starting to place the bombs.

https://old.reddit.com/r/ColumbineKillers/comments/tpos3e/eric_and_dylan_planting_the_bombs_in_the_cafeteria/

Two backpacks filled with pipe bombs, aerosol canisters, and small propane bombs were also placed in a field about 3 miles (4.8 km) south of CHS, and 2 mi (3.2 km) south of the fire station. The bombs were intended as a diversion to draw firefighters and emergency personnel away from the school. Only the pipe bombs and one of the aerosol canisters detonated, causing a small fire, which was quickly extinguished by the fire department.

11:19am

At 11:19 a.m., 17-year-old Rachel Scott https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/1711657443799864.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/1711663405683608.webp

and her friend Richard Castaldo were having lunch and sitting on the grass next to the west entrance of the school. Klebold threw a pipe bomb towards the parking lot; the bomb only partially detonated, causing it to give off smoke. Castaldo thought it was no more than a crude senior prank. Likewise, several students during the incident first thought that they were watching a prank.

A witness reported hearing "Go! Go!" before Klebold and Harris pulled their guns from beneath their trench coats and began shooting.

The two allegedly returned to where Rachel Scott and Richard Castaldo lay on the ground injured. Scott was killed instantly when she was hit four times with rounds fired from Harris's carbine; one shot was to the left temple.

Castaldo was shot eight times in the chest, arm, and abdomen by both Harris and Klebold; he fell unconscious to the ground and was left paralyzed below the chest.

Klebold's TEC-9 jammed forcing him to temporarily stop. Meanwhile, Harris took off his trenchcoat and aimed his carbine down the west staircase in the direction of three students: Daniel Rohrbough, Sean Graves, and Lance Kirklin. Thinking it was just a paintball gun they weren't quick to run away.

Harris fired ten times, killing Rohrbough https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116574438580165.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116606744766777.webp and injuring Graves and Kirklin.

During this time was when Dave Sanders heard the gun fire from the cafeteria and began warning student's who then started fleeing to safety.

Harris turned west and fired seven shots in the direction of five students sitting on the grassy hillside adjacent to the steps and opposite the west entrance of the school. Michael Johnson was hit in the face, leg, and arm but ran and escaped; Mark Taylor was shot in the chest, arms, and leg and fell to the ground, where he faked death; the other three escaped uninjured.

Klebold walked down the steps toward the cafeteria. He first shot once at the body of Dan Rohrbough with his shotgun, and then came up to Lance Kirklin, who was already wounded and lying on the ground, weakly calling for help. Klebold said, "Sure. I'll help you," then shot Kirklin in the jaw with his shotgun. Although near-fatally injured, Kirklin would survive. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116582133207483.webp

Graves—paralyzed beneath the waist—had crawled into the doorway of the cafeteria's west entrance and collapsed. He rubbed his blood on his face and played dead. After shooting Kirklin, Klebold walked towards the cafeteria door. He then stepped over the injured Graves to enter the cafeteria. Graves remembers Klebold saying, "Sorry, dude."

Klebold only briefly entered the cafeteria and did not shoot at the several people still inside. Officials speculated that Klebold went to check on the propane bombs. Harris was still on top of the stairs shooting, and severely wounded and partially paralyzed 17-year-old Anne-Marie Hochhalter as she tried to flee.

Klebold came out of the cafeteria and went back up the stairs to join Harris. They each shot once at students standing close to a soccer field but did not hit anyone. They walked toward the west entrance, throwing pipe bombs in several directions, including onto the roof; only a few of these pipe bombs detonated. Witnesses heard one of them say, "This is what we always wanted to do. This is awesome!"

Meanwhile, art teacher Patti Nielson was inside the school; she had noticed the commotion and walked toward the west entrance with student Brian Anderson. Nielson had intended to walk outside to tell the two students, "Knock it off", thinking they were either filming a video or pulling a student prank.

As Anderson opened the first set of double doors, the gunmen shot out the windows, injuring him with flying glass; Nielson was hit in the shoulder with shrapnel.

Anderson and Nielson ran back down the hall into the library, and Nielson alerted the students inside to the danger, telling them to get under desks and keep silent. She dialed 9-1-1 and hid under the library's administrative counter. Anderson fell to the floor, bleeding from his injuries, then hid inside the magazine room adjacent to the library.

11:22 a.m.: Police response and West Entrance shootouts.

A custodian called Deputy Neil Gardner, the assigned resource officer to Columbine, on the school radio, requesting assistance in the senior parking lot.

The only paved route took him around the school to the east and south on Pierce Street, where at 11:23 a.m., he heard on his police radio that a female was down, and assumed she had been struck by a car. While exiting his patrol car in the senior lot at 11:24, he heard another call on the school radio, "Neil, there's a shooter in the school.

Harris, at the west entrance, immediately turned and fired ten shots from his carbine at Gardner, who was 60 yards (55 m) away. As Harris reloaded his carbine, Gardner leaned over the top of his car and fired four rounds at Harris from his service pistol.

Harris ducked back behind the building, and Gardner momentarily believed that he had hit him. Harris then reemerged and fired at least four more rounds at Gardner (which missed and struck two parked cars), before retreating into the building. No one was hit during the exchange of gunfire.

By this point, Harris had shot 47 times, and Klebold 5.

The pair then shot out the windows to the east entrance of the school. After proceeding through the hall several times and shooting toward—and missing—any students they saw, they went toward the west entrance and turned into the library hallway.

Inside the school cafeteria, Dave Sanders and two custodians initially told students to get under the tables, then successfully evacuated students up the staircase leading to the second floor of the school. The stairs were located around the corner from the library hallway in the main south hallway. Sanders then tried to secure as much of the school as he could.

Sanders and another student were at the end of the hallway, where he gestured for students in the library to stay, before encountering Harris and Klebold, who were approaching from the corner of the north hallway. Sanders and the student turned and ran in the opposite direction. Harris and Klebold shot at them both, with Harris hitting Sanders twice in the back and neck. The latter ran into a science classroom and warned everyone to hide. Klebold walked over towards Sanders, who had collapsed, and tossed a pipe bomb, then returned to Harris up the library hallway.

Sanders struggled toward the science area, and teacher Rich Long took him into a classroom where 30 students were located. Due to his knowledge of first aid, student Aaron Hancey was brought to the classroom from another by teacher Kent Friesen despite the unfolding commotion. With the assistance of fellow student and teacher, Hancey administered first aid to Sanders for three hours, attempting to stem the blood loss using shirts from students in the room, and showing him pictures from his wallet to keep him talking

As the shooting unfolded, pipe bombs were tossed in the hallways and down into the cafeteria. Patti Nielson in the library called 9-1-1, telling her story and urging students in the library to take cover beneath desks. According to transcripts, her call was received by a 9–1–1 operator at 11:25:18 a.m.

11:29–11:36 a.m.: Library massacre

At 11:29am Eric and Dylan would enter the Library where most of the killing's would be taking place.

Harris yelled at everyone to "GET UP!" loud enough to be heard on the 911 call. When no one complied, Harris yelled, "Fine! I'll start shooting anyway!"

The gunmen walked into the library, towards the two rows of computers. Sitting at the north row was disabled student Kyle Velasquez. Klebold fired his shotgun, fatally hitting him in the head and back. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116593047110183.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116606729816902.webp

Throughout the massacre in the library, they ordered everybody to get up, said how long they had been waiting for this, and seemed to be enjoying themselves, shouting things like "Woo!" after shooting. While ordering the jocks to stand up, one of the two said, "Anybody with a white hat or a sports emblem on it is dead." Wearing a white baseball cap at Columbine was a tradition among sports team members. Nobody stood up, and several students tried to hide their white hats.

Klebold removed his trench coat. He then fired his shotgun at a nearby table, injuring three students: Patrick Ireland, Daniel Steepleton, and Makai Hall.

Harris walked toward the lower row of computer desks with his shotgun and fired a single shot under the first desk while down on one knee. He hit 14-year-old Steven Curnow with a mortal wound to the neck. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116597305902398.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116606735042973.webp

He then moved to the adjacent computer desk, injuring 17-year-old Kacey Ruegsegger with a shot which passed completely through her right shoulder, also grazing her neck and severing a major artery. When she started gasping in pain, Harris said, "Quit your bitching."

Harris then walked to a table south of the lower computer table, with two students underneath: Cassie Bernall and Emily Wyant. Harris slapped the surface of the table twice as he knelt, and said "Peek-a-boo" before shooting Bernall once in the head with the shotgun, killing her. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116597311053915.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116609473168187.webp

After fatally shooting Bernall, Harris turned toward the next table, where Bree Pasquale sat next to the table rather than under it. Harris's nose was bleeding; witnesses later reported that he had blood around his mouth. Harris asked Pasquale if she wanted to die, and she responded with a plea for her life. Harris laughed and responded "Everyone's gonna die." When Klebold said "shoot her," Harris responded "No, we're gonna blow up the school anyway."

Klebold noticed Ireland trying to provide aid to Hall, who had suffered a wound to his knee. As Ireland tried to help Hall, his head rose above the table. Klebold shot him a second time, hitting him twice in the head and once in the foot. Ireland was knocked unconscious but survived.

Klebold then walked toward another table, where he discovered 18-year-old Isaiah Shoels, 16-year-old Matthew Kechter, and 16-year-old Craig Scott (Rachel's younger brother), hiding underneath. Klebold called out to Harris that he found a "BIPOC" and tried to pull Shoels out from under the table.

Harris left Pasquale and joined him. According to witnesses, they taunted Shoels for a few seconds, making derogatory racial comments. The gunmen both fired under the table; Harris shot Shoels once in the chest, killing him, https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116597313942406.webp and Klebold shot and killed Kechter. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/1711659732159147.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116606740112448.webp Though Shoels was not shot in the head, Klebold said: "I didn't know black brains could fly that far."

Meanwhile, Scott was uninjured, lying in the blood of his friends, feigning death.

Klebold walked to the east area of the library. Harris walked from the bookcase, past the central area to meet Klebold. The latter shot at a display case next to the door, then turned and shot toward the closest table, hitting and injuring 17-year-old Mark Kintgen in the head and shoulder.

He then turned toward the table to his left and fired, injuring 18-year-olds Lisa Kreutz, Lauren Townsend, and Valeen Schnurr with the same shotgun blast. Klebold then moved toward the same table and fired several shots with the TEC-9, killing Townsend. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116599646563914.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116608570610468.webp

At this point, the seriously injured Valeen Schnurr began screaming, "Oh, my God! Oh, my God!" In response, Klebold asked Schnurr if she believed in the existence of God; when Schnurr replied she did, Klebold asked "Why?" and commented "God is gay." Klebold reloaded but walked away from the table

Harris approached another table where two girls were hiding. He bent down to look at them and dismissed them as "pathetic". Harris then moved to another table where he fired twice, injuring 16-year-olds Nicole Nowlen and John Tomlin. Tomlin moved out from under the table. Klebold shot him repeatedly, killing him. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116599658416255.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116606747090886.webp

Harris then walked back over to the other side of the table where Townsend lay dead. Behind the table, a 16-year-old girl named Kelly Fleming had, like Bree Pasquale, sat next to the table rather than beneath it due to a lack of space. Harris shot Fleming with his shotgun, hitting her in the back and killing her. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116602467921758.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116608581001337.webp

He shot at the table behind Fleming, hitting Townsend, who was already dead; Kreutz again; and wounding 18-year-old Jeanna Park.

Harris then pointed his carbine under a table, but the student he was aiming at moved out of the way. Harris turned his gun back on the student and told him to identify himself.

It was John Savage, an acquaintance of Klebold's. He asked Klebold what they were doing, to which he shrugged and answered, "Oh, just killing people." Savage asked if they were going to kill him. However, because of the background noise, Klebold said, "What?" Savage asked again whether they were going to kill him. Klebold said no, and told him to run. Savage fled, escaping through the library's main entrance and through the cafeteria.

After Savage left, Harris turned and fired his carbine at the table directly north of where he had been, hitting the ear and hand of 15-year-old Daniel Mauser. Mauser retaliated by either shoving a chair at Harris or grabbing at his leg; Harris fired again and hit Mauser in the center of the face at close range, killing him. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/1711660246923132.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116608529960175.webp

Harris then moved south and fired three shots under another table, critically injuring two 17-year-olds, Jennifer Doyle and Austin Eubanks. Klebold then shot once, fatally wounding 17-year-old Corey DePooter, https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/1711660247082515.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116606724559247.webp at 11:35.

There were no further victims. They had killed 10 people in the library and wounded 12.

12:08pm: Suicides

After leaving the library, Harris and Klebold entered the science area, where they caused a fire in an empty storage closet. It was extinguished by a teacher who had hidden in an adjacent room.

The gunmen then proceeded toward the south hallway, where they shot into an empty science room. At 11:44 a.m., they were captured on the school security cameras as they re-entered the cafeteria. The recording shows Harris crouching against the rail on the staircase and firing toward the propane bombs left in the cafeteria, in an unsuccessful attempt to detonate them.

They left the cafeteria at 11:46.

They re-entered the library, which was empty of survivors except for the unconscious Ireland and the injured Kreutz. Once inside, at 12:02 p.m., police were shot at again through the library windows and returned fire. Nobody was injured in the exchange. By 12:05, all gunfire from the school had ceased. By 12:08 p.m., both gunmen had killed themselves. Harris sat down with his back to a bookshelf and fired his shotgun through the roof of his mouth; Klebold went down on his knees and shot himself in the left temple with his TEC-9.

══════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════════

AFTER THE SUICIDES:

At 2:15 p.m., students placed a sign in the window: "1 bleeding to death", in order to alert police and medical personnel of Dave Sanders' location in the science room. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116618778130002.webp

Police initially feared it was a ruse by the shooters.

By 3:00, the SWAT officers had moved Sanders to a storage room, which was more easily accessible. As they did so, a paramedic arrived and found Sanders had no pulse. He had died of his injuries in the storage room before he could receive medical care. He was the only teacher to die in the shooting. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116618778893244.webp https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116618779905186.webp

Patrick Ireland had regained and lost consciousness several times after being shot by Klebold.

Paralyzed on his right side, he crawled to the library windows where, on live television, at 2:38 p.m., he stretched out the window, intending to fall into the arms of two SWAT team members standing on the roof of an emergency vehicle, but instead falling directly onto the vehicle's roof in a pool of blood. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116618781440067.webp

He became known as "the boy in the window."

COLUMBINE EFFECT:

The Columbine effect is the legacy and impact of the Columbine High School massacre.

The shooting has had an effect on school safety, policing tactics, prevention methods (including gun control and metal detectors), and inspired numerous copycat crimes, with many killers taking their inspiration from Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold by describing the two perpetrators as being martyrs or heroes.

COPYCATS:

The Columbine shootings influenced subsequent school shootings, with several such plots mentioning it. Fear of copycats has sometimes led to the closing of entire school districts.

SECONDARY CASUALTIES:

Six months after the shootings, Anne Marie Hochhalter's mother killed herself.

Several former students and teachers had PTSD

Greg Barnes, a 17-year-old student who had witnessed Sanders' shooting, committed suicide in May 2000. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116631057936478.webp

Survivor Austin Eubanks, who was injured during the shooting, became heavily medicated, developing an opioid addiction.

Eventually overcoming and later speaking publicly about the addiction, Eubanks died from an accidental overdose in 2019 at the age of 37. https://i.watchpeopledie.tv/images/17116631058859599.webp

EFFORTPOST One of our fellow WPD users 1dayUsuffer was caught by the feds for making threats to kill white people

I found out from a post by /u/neverstopthezerg. Say hi if you are reading this. Also say hi if you're a fed reading this, I guess.

Name is @1dayUsuffer, or Joshua Cobb

He was a black ex-Marine who was was arrested on Friday, May 10, 2024 for making threats to kill white people. The charge was "transmitting a threat in interstate and foreign commerce", punishable by a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. He fantasized about shooting up a gym, a supermarket, or a rich white area. He felt a connection to Nikolas Cruz and liked the "element of surprise and style" of the 2022 Buffalo shooting (even though Payton Gendron targeted black people).

He made his WPD account on February 22, 2023 and made posts from February 23, 2023 to June 7, 2023. (I do not know if there are deleted or removed comments from later dates.) His last voting activity was on January 6, 2024.

Announcement (Justice.gov)

:marseypdf: This is the criminal complaint PDF. They did not mention WPD or Reddit by name.

On December 17, 2022, he apparently made a post on Reddit under the username /u/NearbyUser101 stating the following. I could not find the post.

I want to cause mayhem on the white community. The reason i specifically want to target white people is because as a black male, they will NEVER understand my struggles. Same way I will never understand their struggles, but I don't care to. I want to erase them. All of them really, but in this case as many as I possibly can. As of today I have officially began planning my attack. It is going to take place in 2023 in the state of New Jersey, I have not chosen a exact date but I am going to be sure it is close to an important holiday to their race. I have a location in mind already which I have frequented for the past year and I am certain nobody there is armed to be able to stop me from spraying them to the ground. I have already acquired 2 of the 4 firearms I plan to use for my attack, and I also know my entry and exit points already after the mayhem.

#957987 What is help going to do for me? And the person who is going to “help” me is only doing it because they are getting paid man. Its all a fucking facade. They dont really care. Lets be real man. Tbh I hope I do progress into a serial killer because I fucking hate life man. I did not ask for this shit. This shit hurts so fucking bad man. Every time I go on social media all I see is other kids my age on fucking boats and jetskis surrounded by drunk hot girls and just having all kinds of fun and then theres me…… doomed to fucking bullshit. Why is life so fucking unfair I hate this shit so much man…. But one day everyone will suffer. I promise I will make everyone feel my fucking pain. My deep, sincere, raw, & sharp pain.

#957994 Fuck those animals. My favorite weapon to kill them with is my crossbow. I use broadhead tips and send it straight to through their brains. Last cat I got I hit him/her right in the eye and that shit was on the floor. Very bloody scene and I loved it. I dont take pictures with my phone but the images remain in my brain.

He hated cats. :marseydead: He wrote about it in more detail here.

#958286 Bro just because you're idea of a happy ending mignt be going too college and slaving away in a cubicle for eternity & getting married doesnt mean its @1dayUsuffer's as well. There is a massive epidemic going on right now. Nobody wahts too acknowledge that us young men in America have so many obstacles stacked against us we cannot excel no matter how hard we try. Especially those like myself who are BLACK & come from poverty. There is no way out for me.

The only way out is bloodshed. Thats success in @1dayUsuffer's eyes.

Furry rights are human rights.

#626107 Ahhh cmon, imagine the rush you'd feel while shooting some shit up. Probably could get literally high off the adrenaline alone. I'd probably OD on my own adrenaline after the 10th body goes down.

#624190 I bet a lot of people said the same thing about these guys that go and kill people like this...THey probably got tired of people like you saying what they will or wont do... and calling them retards... It makes sense why they get tired of being doubted and talked to any kind of way so they go blow fucking brains apart.

And also, just because you don't agree with something doesn't make it cringe. Fuck out of here with that dumb ass word this edit is dope. Nothing better than watching people die to some sick tunes.

And I really don't get why you are so bothered by people who wish to idolize school shooters. If that's what someone likes, let them like that.. Why does it concern you so much? Are you afraid one day that person might end up shooting you apart into legit pieces one day? Why is it ok for someone to idolize Michael Jordan or Lebron James but not Nicholas Cruz or Payton Gendron? Sounds like a lot of fear to me...

#625258 I'm defending them because I feel their same pain every waking day of my life... I know exactly what it feels like to be constantly fucked with by people all your life, I know what it's like to be the "outsider" or "loner" as some might say. This world we inhabit is a cold and very dark place for some of us and people make it no better because they love to treat you like a fucking outcast until you become one of these so-called "freaks", & blow their heads apart.

And I kind of agree with you on the second part though, if someone is so miserable to that point they should just kill themselves, but at the same time, if most of your anger is toward humanity and its treatment of you, why not steal a couple of souls before you pull the trigger on yourself? Fruit for thought.

His opinion on idolizing mass shooters.

#957903 1: Yes

2: No documented history but I definitely have problems but I refuse to get evaluated because I will lose my firearms license here in America. Not to mention, pretty much every single person in my family tree clearly shows signs of multiple different mental illnesses & I had 3 aunts who were diagnosed Schizophrenics, so do as you will with that information.

3: That and the adrenaline rush is nice because I'm a depressed lonely piece of shit loser with nothing to live for so watching people get fucking MERKED gives me some excitement.

4: 100% someday. Just not yet though, I want to continue training and buying more ammunition.

I don't know what the questions were because the post was deleted. I'm guessing the 4th question was something along the lines of "Would you ever harm/kill someone else?".

Phone Notes

Here are two notes from his phone. Italic words are ones I could not make out from the PDF.

First note (March 16, 2023)

Life is nothing.

and it is meaningless. I fucking hate all of you soft ass fucking people. You all are so fucking fake. You all try to play the part and confide to this stupid ass game. Who can be the fakest? I see it all day long. Fake interactions people putting on their fake happy voices when they know deep inside they are screaming.... Why not be true and let the scream out? Why hide it? It's all a fucking game and you all are going to die. I currently lack the means necessary to kill as many as I intend to but one day I will have the available resources (finance) to purchase the appropriate weaponry for my killing(s).

All my life I have been doubyed… Ive been taken as the joke… ive been fucked around with… well now its my turn. I am going to kill one of you motheruckers I fucking hate humanity. All of you fucking duck and I don't give a single fuck about any of you though I may appear I do. People ACT like they care for you. All of their care is conditional. The moment you do one thing against their conditions they no longer care... so the question becomes. did they care in the first place? Here Ill answer that for you. NO.

Its all fucking fake and I am sick of it. Im ready to grt to the good part of my story where I start taking you mother fuckers out and killing you all… My rampage will soon happen… I plan to now continue accumulating the necessary equipment needed to execute. Once all equipment is in, time will then tell. You will all die.

Second note (March 20, 2023)

For all of my life, all that I can remember I've been the outcast..Ive been ignored. Ive been left out. Ive been forgotten. Ive been excluded.

As of recent I have began to accept this dark reality for myself.

Nobody wants or appreciates my company. And that is okay with me. I will want and appreciate my own company.

I no longer seek the companionships of other humans. There comes a point where you realize you just literally do not matter to other(certain) people. I hate all of this shit and I feel like my only way out of the pain and suffering is by exploding. So I await… I await that moment so I can make those moments final. For whomever… myself or a victim.

Other social media

Here are some random videos I downloaded from his TikTok.

All of the videos are from May 2022, except the night walk video (December 2021), the opinions video (February 2022), and the Marine video (May 2024).
