In VERY local news:

Man is arrested for drug involvement, including usage.

Man is released.

Man goes to low income housing development, beats the fuck out of girlfriend.

Girlfriends 6 year old son (to another man) tries to defend his mother.

Man ties boy up using duck tape, and stabs him to death in front of his mother.

Man flees, but is caught in Oklahoma.


This town just keeps getting better and better. This is the second murder in a month and a half, and three people have died total being that the previous one was a murder/suicide. My thoughts go out to the family and friends of this little boy, and to his battered mother who is laying in a hospital somewhere, likely with images of her son running through her head.

He was caught yesterday night in Oklahoma, having fled our town after commiting the crime. He hit a bridge during a chase, the car caught on fire, and he dove into a river and swam under a bridge, where he begged the cops to shoot him.

Crimes against children do not go over well in prison. I hope he gets what is coming to him when they throw him in there.

What a way to spend the holiday season.

Peace, Love, and Justice for all, especially those hurt or involved.
