Stupid Criminals

Why is it that criminals think they are so much smarter
than police or the rest of us?

Joanna Hayes
Hayes was just convicted of murdering her
daughter in law Heather Allen Strube in front
of Heather's baby boy, Joanna's grandson.

Joanna Hayes has a habit of obtaining weapons from
people at construction sites and of pointing them at
people, such as her then husband, usually point blank
at their forehead.

She shoots Heather Allen Strube in a Target parking
lot in front of witnesses. Yes, she was in disguise,
supposedly to make it look like a man had done the

But long before she killed Heather, she'd told a co-
worker how she would plan a "perfect murder" and
then proceeds to use elements of that same plan
months later!

She's been convicted and sentenced to a long
stretch. She'll be eligible for parole only when she's
77 years old, and even then might not obtain parole.

David Gabriel "Gabe" Watson

Watson insisted upon diving lessons for a less than
enthusiastic fiance.

He insisted upon Christina "Tina" (Thomas) Watson
"increasing her life insurance with himself as the
beneficiary. Witnesses remember these things!
Especially when one files for the insurance
immediately after the death of the insured!

He arranges a honeymoon dive in Australia, in
which Tina dies. Watson rushes topside to "get help"
which witnesses and experts say he didn't do.

Although Australia put him in prison on lesser
charges, he's now facing murder charges in Alabama.
The fact that Watson is believed to have planned the
murder in the U.S. before the actual deed is why he's
going to be tried.

Casey Anthony.
Many can't believe, and are appalled, that a mother
who professes to love their child would wait 31 days
and party hearty before reporting their young
child missing, no matter the dysfunctional family
dynamics. Report it to police, a trusted friend,
neighbor, someone!

Casey Anthony was convicted on the check charges.
Didn't she think about the surveillance videos in
the banks and stores? Or that her friend might
not be pleased and press charges once she's found
her bank account wiped out?

Abandoning (& murdering) your child is a crime and
Casey Anthony knew it! So she thought up on the fly,
a stupid SODDI (Some other dude did it) excuse.
In this case, the "Zanny nanny" did it.

Anthony's "I was searching, doing my own investigation"
explanation is beyond ludicrious. And while in jail waiting
trial she floated the "abuse" excuse, pointing her grubby
fingers vaguely at her brother and father.

Now in court, the defense has indicated that's the plot
they're going to follow, that she perhaps harmed Caylee
because of past abuse - while there are no indications
(according to George & Cindy's attorney) of allegations
of abuse in her diaries.

There are other family members, friends and other
witnesses that are quite likely going to be able to
testify that Casey Anthony wasn't abused.

A look at the video from jail in which she berates
her parents speaks volumes about the dynamics
of those relationships.

Christopher Coleman - murdered his wife and two
sons, Sheri, Gavin and Garret in their beds. This cretin
planned their murders ahead of time, sending violent
emails, painting obscene and threatening messages on
the walls as evidence, and then setting up his alibi.
To sweeten the plot, he phones his neighbor, a police
officer, in order to show off his innocence.

Between today's forensics, police investigations and
other techniques, as well as Coleman's own background
from previous employment, he should have known he'd
be caught and that the evidence pointed right back at

Now convicted & sentenced to life without any possibility
of parole - he's escaped the death penalty only because
the change in the law in Illinois in the last few months.

All of these perps, thought/think that they were/are
more intelligent than the rest of us, yet their own plans
came to nought - because they aren't.

Will there be "JUSTICE FOR CAYLEE?"

Caylee Anthony's mother, Casey Anthony is on trial for the
child's death and jury selection has finally begun.

Will there be "Justice for Caylee?"
The trial is scheduled to now begin on Monday, the
23rd of May, 2011.

Casey Anthony has cried in court whenever her name is
mentioned, specifically when the Judge addresses the
potential jurors and reads out the indictment. Yet, there
are no tears for Caylee whenever her name is mentioned.

Caylee Anthony's grandparents, George & Cindy Anthony,
have now (3 years later) tradmarked Caylee Anthony's
name AND the phrase "Justice for Caylee" ... AND.....have
filed for an accounting of the monies made by websites who
sold "JUSTICE FOR CAYLEE" items in the past.

All about the money? You decide.

A day late and a dollar short as the old saying goes.
If they were concerned about the misuse of Caylee's
name it should have been done the year of her death,
after her remains were found.

The phrase "Justice for Caylee" has been used by those on
the Internet who wanted to show their support for Caylee,
a child they believe was murdered, since the day it was
reported she had been "missing for 31 days."

So why now are the Anthony's making it clear they "own"
the phrase?

Trademarking Caylee's name I can understand. Many
victim's families do so in order to prevent persons from
profiting from their loved one's name.

However, in this case, the only one I've seen express any
real love and anguish about Caylee's death has been George
Anthony. Although, his and Cindy, and Lee Anthony's antics
in the past have made their concern for Casey Anthony
appear of more interest to them than that of Caylee's death.

That being said, I can understand their wishing to save their
daughter from the death penalty, and at the same time wanting
to know exactly what happened to their grandchild.

But this trademarking of the phrase "Justice for Caylee" reeks
just as much as dead fish lying on a river bank, left there by
unconcerned persons who obviously aren't really interested in
fishing, or the sportsman's etiquette. (Release back what you
aren't going to eat.) Those dead fish smell awful and reek badly.

This trademarking of the phrase smells, frankly, of self serving,
grasping and greediness on their part.

joy unsurpassed.

Clayton County Solicitor Tracy Graham Lawson
"I am so ready to take this case to trial, but unfortunately
the judge continued the case because the defense attorney
got called to a federal trial. Federal cases take precedent
over state cases."

Troy Dale West, Jr.'s trial date is set for July 19th.
Clayton County Superior Court Judge Geronda V.
Carter will be presiding.

West, from Poulan, Georgia, of Troy's Paint & Body
& Auto Salvage is currently wearing an ankle
bracelet while awaiting trial. June 10, 2010, West's
attorney asked that the ankle bracelet be removed
but Judge Carter denied the motion.


West was arrested and charged with beating Army
Reservist Tashawnea Hill in front of her 7 year
old daughter outside of a Cracker Barrel restaurant
in 2009. During the beating, West reviled Hill with
offensive, abusive language and racial obscenities.
West only stopped the beating when a Cracker
Barrell Manager came to Hill's aid.

West claims Ms. Hill spit upon him while witnesses
and the surveillance video from the restaurant
back up Ms. Hill's statement that West had almost
hurt her daughter with the door and she had politely
asked him to be careful.

Police: West became enraged when Hill told him to be
careful after he nearly hit her 7-year-old daughter while
opening the restaurant's door.

Ms. Hill "The man slung open the door pretty hard and fast
and I had to push my daughter out of the way. I turned to
the man and I just said, 'Excuse me sir, you need to watch
yourself you almost hit my daughter in the face.' And from
there it just went downhill."

Police: West threw her to the ground and hit her in the head
with his fists and feet, police said. During the exchange,
witnesses said West could be heard screaming racial slurs at
the victim.

Ms. Hill "Then he punched me in my face and I fell to the
ground and he proceeded to punch in my head and face."

Ms. Hill's daughter was crying uncontrollably and physically
shaking during/after the event. Both she and her mother
still have nightmares from the event.


23 September 2009 - A grand jury indicted West
on felony charges including aggravated assault, false
imprisonment, first degree cruelty to children, battery
and disorderly conduct.

Tracey Graham Lawson (Assistant District
Attorney) "You don’t get to beat a woman down,
kick her like she’s a dog in front of her child and call
her all that stuff."

This isn't Troy Dale West Jr.'s first brush with the law
or with unprovoked violent behaviour towards others.

Gabrielle Daniels aka ThisBlksistasPage has uncovered
the following information on West:

1998, West is charged with simple battery and terroristic
threats after he attacked a cashier at a K-Mart in Tifton,
said Dennis Baker, chief administrator for the district attorney.
According to Baker, West created phony receipts showing
he had purchased Matchbox cars at other K-Marts for 59 cents.
He argued with the cashier that the price of the cars should be

When the cashier denied the request, West got into a dispute
with him, Baker told the judge. “The defendant pushed
him [the cashier] against a telephone booth and said
he would kill him,” Baker said.

The cashier called the police and West fled, Baker said. Police
arrested West at a nearby Waffle House, where he was hiding
in the bathroom with a loaded pistol, according to Baker.
The case was later dismissed after the records could not be

West faces a decade in prison if convicted.

The FBI is investigating the case as a hate crime.
