Setting fire to sex offender’s home nets prison

7-22-2014 Wisconsin:

Two men accused of setting fire to a mobile home of a registered sex offender in the town of Gardner last fall have been convicted in Door County Circuit Court.

T.J. Robert Hunt, 25, Sturgeon Bay, was given three years in state prison and seven years of extended supervision by Judge Peter Diltz on July 14 for arson, party to a crime.

On Nov. 2 the corner of a mobile home was doused with gasoline where Jason H. Johnson, 40, was living and asleep at the time. Johnson, who had been convicted in Michigan in 2009 of second-degree sexual assault, had recently moved into the home in the neighborhood where Hunt and Baker lived.

Johnson awoke to the smoke, and the fire was put out by the Brussels, Union, Gardner Fire Department. No one was injured, and Johnson continues to live in the town of Gardner.

Hunt pleaded no contest to the arson charge on April 10. Other charges of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, second offense; first-degree recklessly endangering safety, party to a crime; and obstructing an officer were dismissed.

Vigilante Violence is NOT "Justice"

6-21-2014 Vigilante Murderers Nationally:

From OnceFallen's blog:

“How do we rehabilitate a sex offender? They cannot be fixed, what they can do, is convinced the Psychologists that they are ‘fixed’ and they are safe to be released into society. The only cure for child abusers and molesters is to have every member of their immediate family killed.

These nefarious crimes and people should not be allowed to procreate. By destroying their immediate family members, you purify the blood line. This is the only way to ensure that they (the pervert or family) cannot ever hurt a child again. Liberals will think that these statements are immature and that I must be empty headed.

How many people consider the children that were abused or molested? What about the mental destruction that this child has to live with for the rest of their lives? How these children will find it difficult to ever trust another person. How these children may possibly never be able to have children of their own, because they were raped so severe, that it damaged them permanently? I don't think my suggestion is to limit sure, I think it's the only answer, and if you don't agree, then you too should be ..Continued..

Teens Keep Vandalizing a University Park Sex Offender's House, and He's Getting Sick of It

6-10-2014 Texas:

When Robert Coleman's house got egged, he called the University Park police. It was a Saturday night in September 2012. Officers came to the crime scene but found no leads, other than the splattered egg yolk. Coleman realized that his patio umbrella was also missing, according to the police report.

The following Saturday night, the eggs hit again. A neighbor told the cops that he saw two teenagers walking nearby around the same time.

Coleman installed a video camera security system, hoping to catch the egg-throwers. But when his house got hit again, the vandal spotted the camera and slapped it down.

Soon the vandals moved onto tougher objects. Coleman was sitting in his home one night when he heard the sound of glass breaking. His window had been hit with "an unknown object," according to a University Park Police Department report.

Another night, Coleman told police, he saw a car drive over his yard. The vehicle fled when he stepped outside.

5-19-2014 Florida:

A 51-year-old homeless man is recovering after he was severely beaten early Saturday morning.

His alleged assailant told investigators he spotted the man peeping in his girlfriend’s bedroom window and chased him down, according to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.

Kenneth Lamar Fuller, who has no known address, was flown to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola with extensive head injuries, including sinus and orbital fractures, a skull fracture and multiple jaw fractures, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies identified Richard Hanchett, 24, as the assailant. Hanchett said he walked outside his girlfriend’s home on Soles Lane sometime after 3 a.m. and spotted Fuller looking in the window.

According to Hanchett, Fuller tried to flee on his bicycle. Hanchett said he chased him down and knocked him off. He told deputies he was trying to hold Fuller down but that Fuller was attacking him and trying to get away so he started hitting him.

Hanchett had no visible injuries, the report said.

He was charged with felony battery and booked into the Okaloosa County Jail. On Sunday, he was released, according to jail records.

At last word, according to the sheriff’s office, Fuller was in the hospital’s intensive care unit, but his condition had stabilized. ..Source.. by Lauren Sage Reinlie

Scott airman admits having bombs possibly intended for child molesters

4-23-2014 Missouri:

An airman at Scott Air Force Base admitted in federal court here Wednesday that he possessed three illegal pipe bombs at his home in Shiloh, but there was no explanation at the hearing of why.

Previously filed charging documents claim that Justin VanGilder told an unnamed visitor to his home that he was suicidal and had fantasies of killing child molesters.

VanGilder, 24, of Twin Oaks Drive, acknowledged in court that he had two bombs with plastic casings and one made of metal. All were packed with smokeless powder, bird shot and nails, and equipped with fuses, his plea documents say. He pleaded guilty to three charges of possessing unregistered destructive devices, and could face up to 10 years in prison on each when sentenced Aug 1. Federal sentencing guidelines are likely to call for much less time, however.
