commentary by Patrick H. Moore

In Aileen Wuornos’ final interview with Nick Broomfield one day before her execution, she starts out calmly enough and appears to have made her peace with dying. She believes in an afterlife and seems to have no fear of what lies ahead. But then she gets angry and starts dissing on the system. In her mind, she has been used, abused and manipulated by society. Like many people who have been badly hurt, given the chance, she is quick to place the blame on others. Many people who have viewed her final interview, including Nick Broomfield, believe that Ms. Wuornos had succumbed to madness as the final hours of her life ticked away.

Eminem’s song for daughter Hailie – Now it don’t feel like the world’s on my shoulders, Everyone’s leaning on me, ‘Cause my baby knows that her daddy’s a soldier, Nothing can take her from me

Little Haleigh Cummings was reported missing from her family’s Satsuma, Florida, home on February 10, 2009. She was 5-years-old at the time with blond hair and brown eyes. The police in this small north Florida community had nothing else to go on, but this physical description.

Haleigh disappeared from the mobile home of her father Ronald Cummings, after being put to bed for the night. By the next morning, an Amber Alert and 14 months of search efforts and investigation into thousands of tips covering several states had begun.

The “Lolita Syndrome” refers to when a full-gown man of mature years becomes so infatuated with a girl of around the age of 12 that he will risk everything to possess her in every sense of the word. The phrase is based on a rather brilliant novel by Russian expatriate writer Vladimir Nabokov which tells the sordid, but in some ways charming, tale of Humbert Humbert who falls in love with Lolita, marries her mother so that he can be close to Little Lo, and then absconds with the child when her mother conveniently dies of a heart attack.

The world has changed greatly since the 1960′s and — generally speaking — individuals are held to a much higher standard of conduct with respect to sexual “indiscretions” and other form of blatant or serious criminal misconduct. In this post, the idea of which comes to us courtesy of Lachlan M. and Javier Yepes at Cracked.com, we will discuss three celebrities who “got away with murder”, figuratively speaking, in previous decades but would probably get far more than “a slap on the wrist” if they were apprehended for these crimes in today’s world.

We will start with legendary rock guitarist Jimmy Page before moving on to Vince Neil of Motley Crew and —surprise surprise — Sean Penn.

commentary by Patrick H. Moore

Although some of us think about it more than others, we all know that death can come calling at any moment. In reference to this scary fact, the Bible says, “You don’t know the minute or the hour” – paraphrase of Matthew 25:13. Although this verse actually refers to the unpredictable moment when Jesus will allegedly return, in a more generic sense it refers to the fact we don’t know when our time will come so we better be ready.

The Beatles once sang “Money Can’t Buy Me Love”, and the statement is probably true if by “love” we are referring to a higher, more exalted experience than mere physical coupling. What is arguably also true is the notion that “money can’t buy you happiness”. A good example of this is the peculiar case of multimillionaire pharmaceutical executive Gigi Jordan.

aggi4In 2010, NYPD broke down Ms. Jordan’s door at the luxurious Peninsula Hotel at the corner of of Fifth Avenue and 55th Street, not far from Trump Tower and the Museum of Modern Art. The sight that met their jaded eyes upon entering the room was not one to warm the cockles of the heart. James C. McKinly, Jr. writes for the New York Times:

With the latest release of the video of Ray Rice striking his then fiancé, Janay, in an elevator in Atlantic City and knocking her out cold, everyone is in an uproar. As a result of this egregious act, Rice lost his position as a star running back with the Baltimore Ravens football team and is on indeterminate suspension from the NFL. I would guess that they are waiting for the smoke to clear before they figure out just how long they need to keep him at bay before the dust settles, thus giving the team the opportunity to bring him back. After all, the Ravens have millions invested in him and he played (plays) a prominent part in their future plans.

Stories, stories, stories. And now cometh one of the more eerie alleged triple murderers we’ve come across. Caius Veiovis, a 33-year-old Springfield, Massachusetts man, is accused of helping two Hells Angels, David Chalue and Adam Hall, murder and dismember David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell in 2011. According to the prosecution’s theory of the case, Frampton and Chadwell were scheduled to testify against Hall, who was a ranking member of the Berkshire County chapter of the Hell’s Angels, which meant they had to be silenced.

The Night Stalker was cold, colder and coldest. He was also not unintelligent, a fact which tends to get lost in the hyperbole he loved to unleash. Richard Ramirez is the stuff nightmares are made of. Here are eight of his most awful quotes courtesy of Angelfire.com.
