NV father kills son, possibly for being gay

NV father kills son, possibly for being gay

Wendell Melton

In Henderson, Nevada, 53-year-old Wendell Melton is accused of allegedly shooting and killing his 14-year-old son, Giovanni Melton. Giovanni was openly gay, and by most accounts was well-liked by his friends and classmate. Many of the headlines on this story are saying that Wendell Melton killed Giovanni because he was gay, however, it’s not that clear just yet. That’s not to say that Wendell Melton isn’t a Grade-A monster.

The reason Giovanni’s sexual orientation has been making headlines is because Giovanni’s foster mother said Wendell Melton hated his son for being gay. According to the foster mother, Wendell Melton once pulled a gun on his son after finding Giovanni with his boyfriend. The foster mother believes that Wendell Melton “would rather have a dead son than a gay son.” Wendell Melton claims he shot his son in self-defense, however, police have said Wendell Melton changed his story several times. Police also think Wendell Melton drew his weapon before he was in any alleged danger.

So as of right now, the motive in the shooting is not 100% conclusive, but for the sake of argument let’s say Giovanni was shot by his father for being gay. I am close in age to Wendell Melton. There was a time when I was much younger when I was a legitimate homophobe. As I gained more experience in the world and experienced different cultures and lifestyles I realized something. How does someone being gay affect you? It doesn’t, unless you’re a close-minded bigot. To all the men who feel the need to put up some kind of super macho persona, having a gay son doesn’t make you any less of a man. As a matter of fact, if you have gay children and accept them, that makes you more of a man and more of a father.

If you’re so inclined, there is a GoFundMe to help Giovanni’s brother who Giovanni took care of.

Bad Dad bashes son to death at cricket match, shot dead by police

Luke Batty, 11, dies in horrific attack by his father at Tyabb cricket oval

Horrific murder after cricket training

Online tributes flow for Luke Batty who was killed at cricket training in Tyabb

Luke Batty, 11, dies in horrific attack by his father at Tyabb cricket oval

Luke Batty (11) was horrifically taken from this world by his own father Greg Anderson (54). He was allegedly bashed to death with a cricket bat during cricket training at the Tyabb Cricket Club in VIC. As police tried to defend the young boy, the killer charged at them with a knife that he had concealed on him. After trying to persuade the murderer to drop the knife and spraying him with capsicum foam with no effect, they were forced to shoot him.

Despite the valiant and courageous efforts of paramedics, young Luke could not be saved. Tributes have brimmed forth on Twitter and Facebook for the young lad, who was described as sports-loving, effervescent and funny. His mum, Rosie Batty, had spoken about Luke’s killer, saying that he had had mental issues and homelessness. She had been separated from him for a while, and on the day of cricket practice, Luke had asked her if he could spend a few more minutes with his Dad because he didn’t get to see him very often. Little did he know that this request would cost him his life.

Police are still asking witnesses to come forward and speak with them to work out what exactly went down that day. The killing took place shortly after practice had broken up, so they think there was still quite a few people hanging around. Several children had witnessed the killer beating Luke with the bat and then stabbing him with a knife. No child should ever have to see someone being murdered, especially one of their friends.

The only small solace in this tragic tale is that the killer got pepper-foamed before he was shot dead. Now he will feel the burn over and over again in whatever place awaits him on the other side.

Rest in peace, young Luke

Beautiful, heavenly Luke. Your radiant smile will light up the heavens for sure.

Son shot for shoplifting

Dad shoots son after teen caught shoplifting

Correctional Officer Accused Of Shooting Son After Shoplifting Arrest

A prison guard from Queens allegedly shot his teenage son after he was busted shoplifting from a Home Depot in Long Island City. Quasaun Smalls (17) decided he needed some drill bits from Home Depot, but didn’t quite have the coin required for their purchase. So in his teenage wisdom, he used the ol’ 5 finger discount. This resulted in a desk appearance ticket and the po-po sent him on his merry way.

When Quasaun got home, his Daddy Dearest Robert Smalls (39) was beyond furious. Apparently Smalls thought his son should have gotten jail time for pinching a few drill bits, rather than just a ticket. A fight broke out, and Robert shot his son with a 9mm handgun. Neighbours say they heard yelling and a gunshot, but probably put it down to background noise associated with living in New York.

Dad called 911 himself (that’s something) and Quasaun was rushed to hospital in a stable condition. He’s expected to make a complete recovery. Dad was charged with felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon. I presume that means he was supposed to turn in his gun at the end of his shift at the jailhouse, and hadn’t.

It would have been a hell of a lot easier to march young Quasaun down to the Home Depot and apologise over the PA system for stealing merchandise, driving up the costs of the merchandise and causing the need to increase security at the shop.

Bad granny shoots and kills her grandson

Grandmother jailed for murdering grandson

Sandra Layne sentenced to 20-40 years in death of grandson

UPDATED Sandra Layne, 75, sentenced to 20 to 40 years in grandson’s murder WITH VIDEOS

Sandra Layne being led out of court

Sandra Layne being led out of court

Sandra Layne (75) has been sentenced to life in prison, after being found guilty of second degree murder, for allegedly shooting and killing her 17 year old grandson Jonathon (Jon) Hoffman. Police say she shot him 6 times, including twice in the back, while he was living with her in her West Bloomfield condo, near Detroit MI. The bad granny testified that she had become afraid of Jon in the last month that he was living with her, and that she’d bought a Glock handgun. Things came to a head on May 18 last year, when Jon threatened to run away after testing positive to synthetic marijuana. That’s when bad granny went upstairs, grabbed the Glock, and shot Jon. Even as he dialled 911, screaming that his grandma shot him, she continued to fire, filling his lean young body with six hollow-point bullets.

Bad granny’s own daughter and the mother of Jon, Jennifer Hoffman condemned her mother’s actions, saying “Sandra Layne is pure evil and, if given the opportunity, would surely kill again,” and “Sandra Layne deserves the maximum penalty allowed. Please do not show mercy on her. She showed no mercy when she planned, stalked, ambushed and murdered my son in his bedroom.”

The reason why Jon was living with his grandma was because his younger sister Jessica was being treated for a brain tumour. Jon went to live with his grandma so that he could continue to go to school and reclaim some stability and normalcy. As if that wasn’t bad enough, now they have to deal with the fact that a beloved, trusted mother and grandmother shot their child dead. Bad granny even had the nerve to blame Jon’s parents for her cold murder of her grandson.

“I would have never let (Jonathan Hoffman) come here. I would have told his parents ‘It’s your responsibility to help him.’ I see my daughter and the pain she’s experiencing. My heart breaks for her. I know what I’ve done. There isn’t a moment in my life I don’t feel that pain.” – Sandra Layne.

Earlier she said that Jon’s parents ignored her pleas to take Jon with them. During that statement and a few others, Mrs Hoffman was seen to be whispering “She’s lying”. Michael Hoffman reflected on Jon, as a strong and independent young man, who did things “the Jon way”. He said he was looking forward to seeing the man that Jon would become. Now that’s all been taken away from him by Sandra Layne.

He also related the effect that Jon’s murder has had on his family, “My beautiful daughter (Jessica, who underwent surgery for a brain tumor) now has a hole in her heart to match the hole in her head,” he wrote.

“Death is final, and my prison is every bit as confining as that which Sandra Layne soon will inhabit.”

Jon could not have been that threatening, if bad granny had time to run up the stairs to grab her gun. If she had time for that, she had time to call the police if she felt she was in danger. Not to mention the fact that she kept shooting him even after he’d tried to call 911. If she really did need to shoot (say he was coming at her with a knife), surely a leg shot would have been enough to fell him? And shots to the back indicates that she either snuck up on him and shot him, or he turned away from her to flee, and she shot him some more. Either way, what kind of coward shoots at someone in the back? This was not an act of self defence. Granny had simply had enough of him being around and waited for the perfect opportunity to get rid of him. The poor kid was messed up because his sister was critically ill, needed understanding and love, did some pot to forget his troubles (not a great idea) but that did not warrant being shot dead. Due to the 40-60 year jail sentence, it’s very unlikely that she will ever live to see freedom. She will die in prison.


Rest in Peace, Jon. You did it “Jon’s Way”

Another selfish parent; another murder / suicide.

 Texas man shoots estranged wife, then himself, at daughter’s 16th birthday


Murder-suicide at Texas dad’s daughter’s sweet 16 party   


My son turned 12 earlier this month.  Even though 12 isn’t a milestone, I make it my goal to make every birthday a memorable one.  I wrangle up some gifts, gather together a few friends to party it up and eat some cake… The usual.  Well, Kelly Suckla’s daughter had a Sweet Sixteen that she will never forget.  

Saturday, January 19th, Kristi Suckla (44) was having a shin-dig to celebrate her daughter’s 16th Birthday.  Although separated (but reportedly on good terms), Kristi’s ex-husband, Kelly Suckla (43) was expected to attend.  What happened when he arrived was anything BUT expected.  

Kelly arrived at the celebration at Kristi’s parent’s home, where she had been living with her 21-year-old son and her daughter.  For whatever reason, the couple got into an argument outside of the home.  Kelly shot and killed Kristi multiple times before turning the gun on himself.  Kelly was pronounced dead at the scene.  Kristi was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead. 

While the children (yes, the 21-year-old was still Kristi’s child) didn’t witness the shooting, they certainly witnessed the aftermath. 

I can’t imagine what the couple could have been arguing about that would have led Kelly to commit this act, ESPECIALLY during his daughter’s party.  In additions, the fact that he brought the gun with him to the house makes me believe that this act of douchbaggery was completely pre-meditated.  The good news, if there is any good news…. No murdered children.  The mental anguish forced upn the kids is horrible enough, but thankfully they weren’t hurt. 

I found a link with the daughter’s name and a pic.  I’m not posting it and asking you guys not to post it either.  I find it highly irrelevant and I feel like she has been through enough without her pic being posted on one more website.  Thank you for your understanding.

When life gives you lemons, beat yourself with them.

Police: Pregnant woman shoots boyfriend near children

Patricia Jaggon could be a Milli Vanilli double and president to the lazy (crazy) eye convention at the same time.  She could also hold the title for being the biggest hood rat I have had the displeasure of doing a write up for.

Bobby Cord 58 is Patricia’s ‘boyfriend’. Bobby came to her apartment to retrieve his belongings before he left her for good. Patricia 28
could not even keep a man 30 years her senior.

There was 7 children from age 1 to 12 in the apartment and Patricia was also 6 months pregnant.

Instead of putting on her big girl panties she went into her bedroom and got out a gun. Then Patricia shot Bobby in the arm and chest. Patricia even called the cops and when they asked where the suspect was she replied “I’m right here!”

If this wasn’t interesting enough the children ratted Patricia out on a few things, they claim to have over heard her say that after she ” kills him she was going to put lemons in a sock and beat herself with them.”

I might be naive but… what the fuck does that accomplish? You beat someone with fruit to prevent bruises, not beat yourself. Right?

One of the kids also said that she was only with him because he drove a nice car.  Now before any old men get excited, let me make this clear. Driving a nice car may get you a 28 year old beastly looking bitch BUT it will also get your ass shot.

No mention on the children and how many if any were her’s.

Patricia Jaggon was arrested for attempted murder. I am pretty confident that she will adjust to her new prison life.

Toddler shoots and kills sister, step-father charged.

Toddler fatally shoots sister, police find 53 guns in home.

Step-father admits, gun that killed girl was unsecured.

On May 29th the 2-year-old, half-brother the beautiful little girl above, Emily Lavender (6), shot and killed her while her two sisters (7 and 10-years-old) watched.  The toddler found the unsecured, loaded .45 caliber handgun under the bed of his parents took it out and carried it into a room where the children were playing.  He pointed it at Emily and accidentally fired; striking her in the chest… she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Emily’s step-father Jarred Dubois, was in the other room at the time and called 911.

Jarred gave a statement admitting to leaving the unsecured loaded weapon, used for “personal/family protection”, under the bed in the manufacturer’s box and not in one of the two gun safes he owns.  While searching the house the police would find 53 other firearms, including another unsecured loaded weapon.  WTH??  Most of the other firearms (that were secured in the gun safes) belonged to Dubois’ father who teaches firearm safety to Boy Scouts and Sea Cadets.

Dubois, a Marine veteran with plans to for a career in law enforcement, has been charged with first-degree criminal storage of a firearm.  If convicted he faces up to three years in prison.

The four other children living in the home were removed and placed with a relative.

Tyrone Hester – Baby Murdering Bastard

RIP baby girl







Police: Man fatally shoots daughter, self in Durham

Police were called before toddler was killed

I get that our “justice” system and laws originally meant to protect our basic rights are there for a purpose and most of the time do help protect regular law-abiding citizens.  Unfortunately, those laws can also sometimes hinder the authorities so much that they are unable to prevent a tragedy which is what happened in the case of little 22-month-old Tyaijah Destiny Hester of Durham, NC.

Tyaijah was spending some time with her father, Tyrone Xavier Hester (25) who was her mother’s ex-boyfriend on Saturday, May 7th.  Something about the visit was worrying Tyaijah’s mother, Latoya Smith, so she called police to beg them to check on her little girl.  The police showed up but while they were there Hester was not behaving threateningly and Tyaijah did not appear to be in danger.  Since there was no formal custody order in place, they were not able to remove her from her father’s care.  That was the last time anyone saw Tyaijah alive.  Less than 30 minutes later, neighbors heard two gunshots and went outside to find Hester and little Tyaijah lying in the yard of the apartment complex where Hester was visiting some relatives.  Hester was pronounced dead at the scene and Tyaijah was taken to Duke University hospital where she later died.

Although clearly he died before he was able to explain his cowardly actions, a cousin claims that Hester was upset that Smith had started dating another man.  Seriously fuckwad!?  You’re a little pissy that your girl moved on from your sorry ass and you try to prove a point by taking yourself out and your little girl with you?  Gutless shit, you can burn in hell for the rest of eternity.

RIP baby Tyaijah.

Target Practice–The New Form of Punishment??

Dad Shoots Kids with Air Gun

Idaho Man Accused of Using Air Gun to Punish Kids

Dad Sentenced for Shooting Kids


"Daddy" Dumbass!!!


29 year old Joshua Alan Brotherson of Idaho Falls was charged in March with 4 counts of misdemeanor minor injury to a child.  It seems this candidate for Dumbest Dad of the Year thinks a proper form of disciplining is to shoot his kids with an Air Soft Gun!

His 2 sons and 2 stepsons, all under the age of 10, go to the local elementary school.  A school official noticed welts on the boys’ lower legs and notified authorities.  When they examined and questioned all 4 of the boys they were told that as punishment for misbehaving dipshit lined them up against a wall and would then shoot them in the lower legs with an Air Soft or BB gun leaving welts and small open wounds…

Dumbass was facing up to a year in county or 10 years in prison.  After being arrested this man was released on his own recognizance!!  Are you fucking kidding me?!?

Apparently, he took a plea bargain.  In exchange for his guilty plea 3 of the 4 charges were dropped.  He was sentenced to 5 days in jail!!  WTF?!?  5 DAYS??? He was ordered to one year probation and also got an additional 90 days in jail, all of which were suspended!!  Don’t you just love our judicial system?!?  NOT!!!


Rant On:

There is one question that has been screaming in my mind through reading and writing about this case.  Where the hell were the mothers?!?  Did they condone this shit??  There is no way in hell that they didn’t know!!!

When I was a kid and dumb as hell my cousins and I got in a BB gun war.  None of the adults knew about it because they were gone to the store.  Back then BB guns weren’t Air Rifles.  You couldn’t pump them to get more force behind them like a pellet gun.  It stung like hell but didn’t break the skin or leave welts!!

The fact that these poor little boys had to stand and endure that shit because of this depraved asshole sickens me!  It makes me want to have a little target practice with my 9mm and his knees!!  Actually, his testicles would be a better choice!  Forced sterilization anyone!!

While researching this and reading comments there were two comments that drew my attention.  The person claims to be the grandfather of 2 of these boys and says this piece of shit almost killed one of them when he was 3!  He states he has a history of abuse of both children and women and is a convicted felon.

I searched for conformation on this but couldn’t find anything but the recent charges.  Either way these mothers need to get their heads out of their asses and get their children away from this motherfucker before he kills one of them!!  Thankfully, he hasn’t yet!  I hope this is a wake up call for the authorities and the families of these boys!!!

Rant Over

Julie Powers Schenecker has a way of dealing with mouthy teens… She kills them


Julie Powers Schenecker Mug Shot Released

Report: Fla. mom accused of killing 2 teen kids hit daughter in months before shooting

Florida Mom Charged With Killing Children Appears in Court 

Police say mother admits killing teen-aged children for being “mouthy” 

Julie Powers Schenecker Weeps in Court, Bail Denied in Murders of Daughter Calyx and Son Beau

 From the outside looking in, the Schenecker’s must have appeared to be a model family.  Parker Schenecker is an Army intelligence officer who, until last week, was working in the Middle East.  His wife, Julie Schenecker, gave birth to his 2 beautiful children you see there; 16-year-old Calyx and 13-year-old Beau.  Calyx was a cross country runner and her little brother was a soccer player with Mama Schenecker toting the kiddies to and from their activities in an SUV like a good soccer mom.  Pretty fucking textbook as far as Hallmark commercials are concerned, right?  Right up until last Thursday when Julie had enough of her mouthy kids.

  50-year-old Julie gunned down both of her children last Thursday.  She shot Beau twice in the head as she drove him home from soccer practice.  Then, leaving her dead son in the car, she entered the family home and shot Calyx twice in the head as she sat in her room studying on the computer.  Her reason for the blood bath?  Because the children were “mouthy”.  Hmph…. What teenager isn’t mouthy?  You take shit away from them, but not their lives! 

 Prior to this incident, there were small indications of trouble in the home, but nothing to lead anyone to believe that the family was in danger.  Neither of the Schenecker’s had ever been arrested.  There was no history of domestic violence.  No reported drinking problems.  No history of drug use.  I could go on and on of the things that weren’t wrong with this family.  This is not the “normal” family that we see featured on this site.  The only indications of this family not being “perfect” were pretty reasonable by any standards. 

 Calyx told authorities, in November, that her mother had hit her twice.  Calyx admitted to saying something that she should not have – in fact, Calyx was in counseling for verbally abusing her mother.  Julie struck Calyx in the face.  Not my idea of a suitable punishment, but certainly not child abuse.  Julie admitted to hitting her daughter to officers.  They didn’t observe any marks on Calyx and determined that there was no abuse so they left without charging Julie.

 DCFS got wind of the family’s domestic issues and did their own investigation.  They showed up at the home sometime before Christmas.  The Schenecker’s told investigators that the family was in counseling.  They also told investigators that the normal course of action for bad behavior was time-outs or taking away privileges to punish the children.  Parker told the investigators that it was the first time that Julie had ever hit one of the children; that Calyx could be very disrespectful and he often found himself being the peace maker.  The children said that they felt safe in the home and the case was closed.

Two days later, Julie crashed her car into a trailer hauling landscaping equipment.  Officers believed that Julie was showing signs of being impaired – she was glassy eyed and “mushy mouthed”, indicating possible drug use.  Officers were not able to conduct sobriety tests at the scene because Julie was taken to the hospital.  An officer went to the hospital to obtain a blood sample, but Julie had already left.  She was ultimately fined $115 for driving 70 in a 55 mph zone and had to attend traffic school. 

Julie’s mother in Texas called police to check on her daughter.  She described Julie as “depressed” and claimed that she couldn’t reach her on the phone.  When they arrived at the home, no one answered the front door.  Julie was eventually found on the back porch, wearing a blood soaked robe and slippers; the youngest child, dead, in the SUV and his sister dead in her bedroom; both shot with a .38 caliber pistol that their mother had purchased just days before.  A note explaining what Julie had done, and claiming her suicide, was found inside the home.  I guess she forgot to carry out the suicide part.

 Julie was taken into custody.  She reportedly told authorities, supposedly with little remorse, that she purchased the pistol with the intent of murdering her children and then taking her own life.  Later that day, she was in the county jail wide eyed and shaking.  She was taken to the hospital, where she remained in intensive care for an existing medical condition.

 Julie is being charged with two counts of first degree murder.  She made a teary eyed court appearance this morning where she was ordered to be held without bail.

Julie Powers Schenecker is proof that you cannot judge a book by its cover – An upper-middle classed soccer mom who is responsible for the cold-blooded murder of her two children.  There’s something you don’t expect here on BB

Thanks go to several people for this tip.  You know who you are!
