15 Y/O Juvenile Arrested for Murder of Elizabeth Olten


CNN News says a 15 year old girl has been charged in the murder of 9 year old Elizabeth Olten from Saint Martin’s Missouri. Elizabeth Olten went missing October 21st after calling her home and telling her family she was leaving to walk home. From what is being reported Elizabeth Olten’s death may have been premeditated by this 15 year old female juvenile.

According to CNN News, the police say there is “written evidence” that the murder was premeditated. As Nancy Grace notes premeditated does not mean it was a long planned out murder, and premeditated could mean just minutes or a few hour of preparation. Whether it was a long planned out murder or spontaneous remains unknown.

It is reported that the juvenile who was arrested last week on Friday, is the same juvenile that led the police to Elizabeth Olten’s body buried deep in the woods. CNN reports “authorities received an anonymous letter leading them to the juvenile who lead police to Elizabeth”.

Little is being reported on the 15 year old girl charged with Elizabeth Olten’s murder, although the juvenile has been living in the custody of family members other than parents and the reason is unknown as to why this is the case.

The juvenile may be tried as an adult in Missouri if the courts decide the murder was malicious and preplanned. In Missouri children as young as 12 years of age have been tried as adults in the court system. Today there is a hearing to determine whether the female 15 year old juvenile will remain in custody at detention while awaiting trial.

Seriously I cannot believe this is even an issue if authorities strongly feel she is the murderer of 9 year old Elizabeth Olten. In my mind there are no questions that need to be considered. If this person may have killed once – certainly she should remain in custody at this time for her safety and the safety of everyone else.

Richmond High School Homecoming Dance Ends in Rape


Imagine your high school homecoming dance. The king and queen of homecoming are announced and the crowd cheers and claps and watches as the pair make their way up front to receive their homecoming crowns. Now imagine another couple, this time the couple is having sex…on campus. When you look closer it is not consensual sex but a rape. Just like when there is a fight after school the word quickly spreads about what is happening and where.

Soon, a crowd gathers, at least 15 young men watch while a 15 year old girl is raped, repeatedly. Some of the boys watching will decide to take their turn and also rape the 15 year old girl. Yet, not one of these young men, teen boys, fellow students will think to call for help, or tell a teacher, or dial 911. No one feels any need to try and stop a girl from being raped. What is this world coming to when it is alright to stand around as a young woman is raped at her homecoming dance on school property and no one tried to help?

American’s have become so non-complacent that we are raising a bunch of socio-paths. These same young men that laughed or stared or participated will one day be our leaders, surgeons, teachers, parents, president. This girl will live with what happened to her for the rest of her life. I hope anyone who knew this was happening; who watched it happen and did nothing is never able to go to sleep without first seeing the face of the girl who was brutally attacked by her peers.

Update:
One individual was identified as a previous student of Richmond High School and was detained when he ran from the scene as police officers arrived on the scene just after midnight. This male Manuel Ortega Nineteen-year-old Manuel Ortega is under arrest and believed to be the “leader” of the pack. He is expected to be charged with multiple charges including rape and kidnapping.

Balloon Incident Declared a Hoax


CNN News is reporting that the balloon incident last week in Fort Collins Colorado has been determined by the Sheriff to have been a publicity stunt. The balloon incident involving the Heene family is officially denounced as a hoax. How sad I feel for six year old Falcon Heene. I cannot imagine his emotional turmoil at this time. Falcon has already been placed repeatedly in the spotlight by his parents Richard and Mayumi Heene since the story broke last week when a nation watched anxiously as a BIG silver balloon floated over Colorado, fearing six year old Falcon Heene was possibly onboard.

In the end it was a child’s innocent response to one question that was asked during Larry King Live hosted by Wolf Blitzer that sparked a debate as to whether the whole balloon incident may have been a publicity stunt or hoax. Falcon Heene’s response to the question did you hear mom or dad calling you…lead to “if you heard us calling you why didn’t you come out” asks Richard Heene. Then Falcon looks surprised and confused as he looks at his mom and dad for guidance as he says “because you said we did this for the show”.

At that time Richard Heene became obviously flustered answering “yes” and then trying to get his son to clarify what did “for the show” mean. When his innocent little boy failed to save him, the father turns his anger toward Wolf Blitzer and CNN News saying “I am appalled as to where this line of questioning is leading”.

Falcon Heene will likely deal with deep emotional scars in the years ahead as his parents face legal and monetary issues regarding this incident. I hope Falcon Heene learns soon that it was an adult decision for whatever he was told to do, and adults are the ones responsible for teaching their children right from wrong.

How horrid this boy was made to stay in an attic above the garage by himself while the nation waited in fear as a balloon floated over Fort Collins Colorado. How many lives were endangered in the air and ground search and rescue efforts? How many lives were delayed as planes were diverted around the low flying balloon shaped like a flying saucer shaped balloon on commercial flights? How many thousands of dollars were spent looking for a boy whom his parents knew was safe the whole time and may have taken away from someone who had a real need that day?

I am simply appalled at the audacity of some parents who will use children to play the system. Falcon Heene please know America loves you and is so happy you are safe and sound, and I am so sorry that the adults in your life made bad choices for you and your brothers. For now I will pray for the Heene family as I simply do not know what else to do. I pray that angels fly above, fly below and fly all around the Heene’s, especially Bradford, Ryo, and Falcon in the trying days ahead.

UPDATE:
According to CNN News Mayumi Heene has admitted that her husband Richard Heene built the homemade balloon strictly in preparation for a hoax to make the family more marketable on reality television. The Heene’s instructed all three of their children on what to say to authorities and that their son Falcon was safe at home the whole time.

Halloween Illegal Alien Costume Controversy


A Halloween costume depicting an illegal alien is at the hot seat of controversy according to CNN News. Apparently people with friends who are illegal aliens living in these United States are voicing upset at the costume which sports a familiar orange prison type jumpsuit, the words illegal alien across the back, a space alien mask, and a fake green card. A second version of the costume has an orange jump suit, the words illegal alien across the back, a green card and a space alien mask with a ball cap and a handle bar mustache.

This costume is upsetting the illegal immigrants of our country. Seriously? Who cares! Let me get this political correctness straight for the record… There are illegal aliens (people whom have entered the USA) by sneaking over the border or letting their work visa expire and we are suppose to care that a Halloween costume is offending them? I say tell the illegal aliens that are upset, GO HOME!

According to the article in the Chicago Tribune, The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, known as CHIRLA, “began receiving e-mails from concerned legal immigrants on Friday” and CHIRLA “wrote a letter asking several retailers, including Target, Walgreens, and Amazon, to stop offering the costume”.

One man interviewed for the story was Guillermo Iglesias. Mr. Iglesias, found the costume offensive “because it depicted illegal immigrants as not one of us.” Apparently both his parents were illegal immigrants, and he has several illegal immigrant friends in the USA. Honestly… I think a judge should request a court-order to check Mr. Iglesias’ cell phone records and emails and deport those illegal immigrant friends of his living here. The truth be told Mr. Iglesias, illegal immigrants are not one of us. Those of us whom are residents of the United States are here legally. THAT is the way it should be.

Jay Leno had previously commented about illegal immigration and Homeland Security, “You read about all these terrorists, most of them came here legally, but they hung around on these expired visas, some for as long as 10-15 years. Now, compare that to Blockbuster, you’re two days late with a video and those people are all over you. Let’s put Blockbuster in charge of immigration”!
Does anyone else find this is ridiculously insane that we are worried about upsetting those people who are here illegally? Grow up America; this politically correct BS is turning America into a land of wussies!
