Next we go the user generated news site CrimeNe.ws. And I’m not kidding when I say user because I seem to be the last user left there. Anyway at CrimeNe.ws there;s always been a sort of fascination about guys who commit crimes with swords. This week was no different as I posted a link to a story about a naked guy with a sword in Rhode Island.
This week News of Doom was called the site that makes you want to kill yourself. I won’t deny that and this week’s story is an example of that. The story of the week at NoD was about an Arkansas daycare worker who raped a 4-year-old girl.
For the fisrt time in years Florida is no longer leading the scoring but not really that surpsisng New York and California are.
And lastly at TheTrenchcoat Chronicles the big story of the week was the tragedy that happened at Northern Illinois University. However I don’t want some other stories to be swept under the rug because of the focus on NIU. A 15-year-old from Oxnard, California was shot and left brain dead just because he was gay. A 19-year-old was shot at a Memphis High School which stemmed from a neighborhood argument. And in a story that I’ve been following for three years the son of the heqad of the Boston police union was convicted of plotting to attack his school. It’s my opinion that due to his connections he won’t even see the inside of a cell while an innocent ‘friend’ of his was sentenced to 10 months behind bars.
That’s it for this week. Until next week I’m Trench Reynolds, keep your kids safe.
