    Memoirs of violence

    Memoirs of violence

    A lot of people ask me, "What made you hate?". That is easy, nothing. I do not hate. I never did. Sure, I was filled with hate. I had a very traumatic childhood. A very troubling adolescence, and an even harder time as a young adult. I have Borderline Personality Disorder, and for the longest time, it was not treated, nor diagnosed. So, my rage and hate was false. But, I never intentionally set out to join a hate movement. The only reason I even accepted the oath, was that the recruiter swore it was not a "Hate based movement." Which it clearly is, and always was. And at my young, and hostile age I collapsed, and ranked up.

    Who is the "Trunk Murderess"

    Who is the "Trunk Murderess"

    Over the past weekend, I was in Arizona visiting family. My brother found a guided haunted tour by Spirit of Arizona Tours (I highly recommend! Our guide was AMAZING and very educational) on Saturday October 17th, 2020 I was taken for a horrifying ride of a lifetime. The photo above may look like just an ordinary house sitting on an ordinary street… but as we all know the saying “You can’t see what happens behind closed doors…” and that saying is practically a statement when it comes to Winnie Ruth Judd.

    Broken Windows Theory

    Broken Windows Theory

    In the 1980s crime in New York City had reached almost epidemic proportions. Apparently, New York was suffering by increased immigration and as a result a much younger population and, added to that, New Yorkers were hit hard by welfare cuts. It wasn’t safe to travel the subway and you would be advised not to go to certain areas, particularly after dark. Yet, by the end of the 1990s the city had cleaned up its act and saw a dramatic fall in the rate of crime.

    Series Review: 'When They See Us'

    Series Review: 'When They See Us'

    So... when I saw this dramatic re-telling of the ordeal of the Central Park 5 being advertised on Netflix, I was already pretty sure that it was going to be must-watch television. I was also extremely apprehensive about seeing the events through the eyes of these five kids (now grown men) and being able to emotionally process it all. The case (and the legal and societal issues it brings to the forefront) kind of hits close to home for me as a parent, and as an African-American man. I'd seen the Ken Burns documentary on the Central Park 5 a while back, so I was already very familiar with the case, and some of the very problematic issues it brought to the table for the American public to address. Systemic racism, classism, and lack of accountability for law enforcement and agents of the legal system were all things that were at the forefront of the documentary. Ava Duvernay did an excellent job of showing the social and personal toll this case had on these men and their families, as well as the greater impact that the institutions of the law and media played in that accrued trauma. Every episode of this mini-series was visceral and traumatic. Whether it was the very public shunning of Yusuf Salaam, Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, and Raymond Santana upon their release from custody as adults, to the entire fourth episode being devoted to the ordeal of Korey Wise's experiences at Riker's Island as an adult, the entire progression of the series takes a huge emotional toll on the audience watching it.

    I Thought I'd Always Be a Criminal

    I Thought I'd Always Be a Criminal

    I am a criminal, I heard that so often that I believed it. My mother told me that my father was killed in a shootout with the police, so I grew up with this idea in my head of who I was based on things I was told. Turns out that my father died almost thirty years after my mother told me that he did. I grew up dirt poor and my step father was physically abusive to me and my sister. We moved to a new city every couple of years, I always felt that I did not fit in. Kids, being who they are, would tease me about my Goodwill clothes and my parents ugly car. I started to steal candy from the local store early on and I learned that if I gave candy to the kids that they would like me or at least pretend to. As I got older I began to associate money with acceptance. I never felt like I was good enough for people to just like me, so I bought friends often by stealing and hustling.

    "In Cold Blood" by Truman Capote

    "In Cold Blood" by Truman Capote

    I first read this book when I was about fifteen years’ old and it was because I had seen it in the local library but it was a tattered copy and so, I bought my own - intact. From not even opening the book, I felt like this was an important text. I wrote the following about it in my diary even before actually reading the book: “there’s something strange about this book. It’s as if it is asking me not to read it but it’s pulling me in. Something about the phrase ‘in cold blood’ sounds unnerving and dangerous. I’ve heard a bit about it but I was never sure to rely on other people’s verdicts of novels. Apparently though, according to some people - this isn’t really a novel at all. Then what is it?” That was the question I had asked: “What is it?” It isn’t really a novel because it isn’t really fiction and, as I know after many re-reads over the years, it isn’t entirely accurate either and so, it isn’t a non-fiction novel. It is an embellishment of the truth for the sake of entertainment and so, it is half and half, something that humans have been doing for centuries. Yet, it is entirely new. It is the new, modern version of criminal justice novels. It was true-crime and this is where I had first encountered a book of which the entire genre would come to change everything about what I believed literature could be. I would be obsessing over true crime for near a decade afterwards and it would be because of “In Cold Blood”. The first question you always ask yourself when you read “In Cold Blood” for the first time and that was the same question I asked myself when I finished the book. I wrote in my diary: “This was a strange book, I’ve never really read anything like it. The moment I finished it, I just sat there thinking about the same question over and over again - ‘what happens if it’s all entirely true?’”

    The Kray Twins Reggie and Ronnie Kray. East End Gangsters And The Modern Casuals.

    For many years British Gangsters have been idolised for their charisma, charm and bad boy image. The hallowing and spine cringing historic tales that scared and devastated British towns and communities with fear for decades. The extreme violence and horrific executions carried out as a sign of a consequence or a display of a physical warning to others. The fierce, terrifying code of conduct they live by with no exceptions. The speculation and secretive world they reside and hustle from that only comes to light via tabloid headlines and media coverage in extreme circumstances.

    Hate in modern day America

    Hate in modern day America

    I admit, I was a fool and joined ranks in the most violent white supremacist group in America, some say, even the world. I spent over one decade inside, and climbed the ladder to Elder status. Basically meaning top ranking officer. I cannot say what made me stand and watch barbaric and heinous things take place that purely sickened me to the core. Home invasions, shootings, beatings, robberies, and even rape. I joined out of hatred but not towards any race, or nationality. And it was never about that anyway, even though most think it is. Most crimes committed that I participated in, or witnessed were mostly targeted at white civilians.

    How Criminals Are Making Money During the Pandemic

    As the ongoing crisis drags on, criminals continue to profit when people are most vulnerable. The pandemic has shown good people trying to contribute, but it has also opened doors for people who prey on others’ misfortunes. In the past, criminal activity accelerated after a natural disaster like Hurricane Katrina in 2005. When people lose everything and are desperate for relief, scam artists flood into town and target unfortunate victims for money. Although the internet is the method most criminals use to steal your money, physical thefts, false phone calls and mail theft are also rising. The following sections describe the ways that criminals are profiting from the pandemic.

    Running

    Running

    Jenniffer was scared and alone, she knew he was looking for her, she knew if he found her, hell would be paid. Jenniffer kept running, she had to find somewhere to hide! She was getting tired, not just mentally but also physically. She had been running away from him for so long she didn't even truly know if he was still following her. Jennnifer had stayed with friends for a few weeks here and there, but never stayed long, he was paying people to be her friends, to try and either get her killed or put in jail under pretense. It was nothing for him to drop a grand or more, just to torment her. She knew this, she knew it all too well when she ran away from him just months ago. and now her she was running down the street, no one to help her, running and alone. She came to a corner, and just to the left, a dinner was open! Yes! a public place, if he finds me here, someone can help, or at least she was hopeful. Jennifer ran as fast as she could to the doors of the establishment. When she got to the doors, she barely looked before entering. An action she would soon regret. She burst through the door, almost soon as she did that she was instantly filled with regret. How could she be so stupid? She should have known. Why would any eating establishment be open at this hour unless he was connected in some way, Sure enough, there was his right-hand goon. Jenniffer froze. Her eyes began to scan the room, that's when she realized, it had all been a cat and mouse game, she was the mouse and she couldn't escape. Jennifer turned to run back out the door but it was too late. His goons had her surrounded. She suddenly felt the cloth over her mouth, from behind her. She managed a little struggle, but the drug in the cloth knocked her out almost immediately. It all happened so fast, they had her now and there was no telling what he would have in store for her. Jennifer found herself almost welcoming the death that faced her, at least all the running and all the fear would be gone. She wouldn't have to deal with this any-more. The feeling of death became even more inviting. Little did she know, This was not her end.. yet.

    How Misinformation Dies

    How Misinformation Dies

    A supposed game-changing, election-blowing, campaign-sinking story nearly went viral, but then within a few hours, faded into oblivion while barely leaving a mark. It had all the hallmarks of a juicy story, a laptop with secret files, hacked emails, the FBI, Hunter Biden. The only issue was that most of it was a lie. For those who missed the New York Post “bombshell,” it debuted on Twitter this past week, framed as the smoking gun that would take down Biden’s campaign. It claimed that a customer dropped off a water-damaged laptop at a blind computer repair shop owner’s business. The owner couldn’t definitively claim it was Hunter Biden’s laptop but there was a Biden sticker on it and an invoice with Hunter Biden’s name on it..

    Earlier this month, my grandmother stopped by my house. She's doing this whole end-of-my-life thing where she's cleaning out anything and everything and giving away the things she doesn't think she's going to need anymore. She's old. She knows what comes next. She handed me a cheery box of holiday decorations and sat down at my table. She asked me, with tears in her eyes, to please not give up on my grandpa's disappearance. So here I am. Help me find him, maybe?

    Anatomy of a Murder (1959)

    Anatomy of a Murder (1959)

    In this article, we will be looking at 2019’s book “1001 Movies to See Before You Die” and going through each film in a random order that I have chosen. We will be looking at what constitutes this film to be on the list and whether I think this film deserves to be here at all. I want to make perfectly clear that I won’t be revealing details from this book such as analyses by film reporters who have written about the film in question, so if you want the book itself you’ll have to buy it. But I will be covering the book’s suggestions on which films should be your top priority. I wouldn’t doubt for a second that everyone reading this article has probably watched many of these movies anyway. But we are just here to have a bit of fun. We’re going to not just look at whether it should be on this list but we’re also going to look at why the film has such a legacy at all. Remember, this is the 2019 version of the book and so, films like “Joker” will not be featured in this book and any film that came out in 2020 (and if we get there, in 2021). So strap in and if you have your own suggestions then don’t hesitate to email me using the address in my bio. Let’s get on with it then.

    Enter The BAU

    Enter The BAU

    The show that took you in the minds of some of the most dangerous and deviant minds. 15 seasons, over 300 episodes, and endless hours of entertainment. This is Criminal Minds. This show in my opinion reigns supreme against all other shows. I could watch this and only this for the rest of my life and be perfectly content and happy with myself. Unlike other crime/ drama/ law enforcement shows, this one not only shows you a unique niche of the FBI, but each and every episode is based on a real life case that has happened in the United States. From chasing down bombers, to serial killers, to arsonists and psychopaths this show never disappoints. With almost the same entire cast for all 15 seasons, this has become a comfort show/ staple in my life. I have grown up with show and no matter the challenges I face in my every day life, I always turn to this show for comfort and I always find a new message or meaning in the episodes to use in my life, as well as to help me grow and overcome different situations and obstacles.
