    The Vigilante Justice Thread

    Jurors on Thursday convicted an Oklahoma City man in a killing described by prosecutors as ?vigilante justice.?

    Adrian Escajeda, 36, was found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of Ulises Lopez, his girlfriend's half-brother. The Oklahoma County jury chose life in prison as punishment. He'll be eligible for parole in his 70s.

    Escajeda testified he went to beat up Lopez, 21, for allegedly sexually assaulting a young girl. He said his girlfriend had told him about the assault. He said things escalated when he confronted Lopez.

    The young girl, though, told jurors that Lopez actually never hurt her. The child testified that she said Lopez sexually assaulted her only because her mother "was so annoying" and was repeatedly asking.

    ?An innocent person ended up dead,? Assistant District Attorney Kelly Collins said during closing arguments Thursday. ?A terrible lie led to Ulises Lopez ending up dead.?

    The prosecutor called Escajeda the "judge, juror and executioner" for Lopez.
    The Sad Part about this when ever somebody does something to stop the abuse through vigilante means some how a dead offender has the ability to "Blame The Hero" While living offenders blame the victim.

    Note this is the Oklahoma Vigilante murder.

    Here is another one in Louisiana. Of course Vigilante Justice happens when the victims believes that they can't get a fair trial in court.

    In a Baton Rouge courtroom raw with emotion, Jace Crehan was sentenced Friday to life in prison without parole and his girlfriend, Brittany Monk, received a 35-year prison term for what the judge called the "diabolical" and "vigilante" killing of a Zachary man whose body was found in a 55-gallon container two weeks after he pleaded no contest to molesting her as a child.

    State District Judge Tony Marabella acknowledged spending many hours agonizing over what would constitute a just sentence for Monk, who was 17 and seven months pregnant with Crehan's child when Robert Noce Jr., 47, was killed July 4, 2015. Thirteen days before that, Noce was put on probation.

    Minutes before Marabella pronounced both sentences, he heard two powerful yet contrasting victim impact statements — one from Cameron Noce, Noce's biological daughter and younger sister of Monk, and the other from Robert Noce's older brother Delmonico Noce.

    Cameron Noce, who called her father a hero and "my definition of a great man," said Crehan amputated part of her body when he strangled and stabbed her father to death.



    You played around with and destroyed lives," she said to Crehan, 23, of Walker, through tears.

    To Monk, Cameron Noce said her big sister betrayed her.

    "Taking my father was not the answer to your problems," she said.

    Robert Noce, a former boyfriend of Monk's mother, was not Monk's biological father but did raise her for about a decade after her mother abandoned her.

    Cameron Noce said she still loves Crehan and Monk and also forgives them — "not for you but for me," because she will no longer let what they did to her father define her.

    Delmonico Noce was far less conciliatory, walking so close to Crehan that sheriff's deputies had to separate them. Noce went on to allege that the East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney's Office has evidence that his brother did not molest Monk.

    It's emotional all the way around," Moore said. "He's entitled to his feeling and I respect those feelings."

    The district attorney noted that Robert Noce, through his attorneys, denied sexually abusing Monk. Noce's "no contest" plea carried the same weight as a guilty plea in criminal court but could not be used against him in a civil proceeding.

    Crehan, who did not testify in his own defense at his trial, chose not to make a statement Friday out of respect for the victim's family, one of his attorneys, Franz Borghardt, told Marabella.

    A day after the mother of his child pleaded guilty to manslaughter and agreed to testify against him, a prosecutor Tuesday rejected a Walker m…

    Monk made a brief statement, saying she wants to rebuild her relationship with her sister and loves her "more than I can put into words."

    "I can never take the place of your father," she added. Monk said she hopes the families involved can find peace and move forward.

    Lindsay Blouin, one of Monk's attorneys, told Marabella that Monk made a "catastrophic … juvenile" decision in terms of her involvement in what happened to Robert Noce.


    Crehan's sentence was mandatory as a result of his December conviction for second-degree murder in the killing of Noce. However, Monk's sentence for her June manslaughter plea could have ranged anywhere from probation to 40 years behind bars.

    During the sentencings, Marabella referred to the planning involved in the crime, the horrific aspects of the crime itself, and the lengths Crehan and Monk went to in an effort to cover up the crime, including flooding Noce's trailer and stuffing his body inside a 55-gallon plastic drum.

    "The cleanup attempt failed and actually preserved evidence," the judge said, referring to bloody towels and fingerprints found in the trailer.

    Marabella said the Noce case "has been painted as `this victim got what he deserved,'" but he pointed out that Monk had absolutely no contact with Noce for several years leading up to his plea and that Monk was in agreement with that June 2015 plea.

    "Everyone knew he was getting probation," the judge said of Robert Noce.

    If the allegations made against Noce are true, Marabella said, then what happened to Monk is horrible.

    "This does not give her the right to exact vigilante justice …," the judge stressed.

    In his post-sentencing comments, Moore said the killing of Noce was cold-blooded, calculated and gruesome.

    "That's just something we cannot have," he said of vigilante justice.

    Crehan told authorities he and Monk broke into Noce's Zachary trailer in the pre-dawn hours of July 4, 2015, and that he strangled and stabbed Noce before putting his body inside a 55-gallon container in Noce's kitchen. Monk testified at Crehan's trial that she punched Noce 10 to 15 times while her boyfriend had Noce on the ground. She also said she retrieved the knife that Crehan used to stab Noce.

    Allegations of Xenophobia and retaliation to a different murder in Italy is at play for an alleged vigilante attack.

    A man opened fire on passersby in the central Italian city of Macerata on Saturday, injuring several African migrants, police said, in an attack that appeared to be racially motivated.

    The shootings happened just days after the dismembered body of an 18-year-old Italian woman was discovered hidden in two suitcases near Macerata. A 29-year-old Nigerian migrant has been arrested in connection with her death.

    Local media reported that six migrants were shot by a man firing from his car window as he drove around the city, located about 200 kilometres east of Rome.

    "Shots fired in Macerata. People injured. Police operation under way. Stay out of the way and avoid open places," the police said on Twitter. Shortly afterwards, police said one man had been arrested.

    The website of newspaper Corriere della Sera said a man fired from a car window at two young African migrants shortly after 11 a.m. Saturday, wounding one of them. A short while later two other migrants, including a woman, were shot.

    Mayor Romano Carancini told Sky TG24 that the victims were five men and one woman. He confirmed all of the victims were foreigners and black and he acknowledged that "the closeness of these two events makes you imagine that there is a connection."

    He said one of the wounded suffered life-threatening injuries. It was not immediately clear how serious the other injuries were.

    Italian suspect apprehended
    Italian authorities have identified the suspected gunman apprehended by police as Luca Traini, a 28-year-old Italian with no previous record. The news agency ANSA reported that Traini had run as a candidate for the anti-migrant Northern League in a local election last year in the city of Corridonia. He did not win.

    A party spokesman was not immediately able to confirm the affiliation.

    A video posted by the newspaper il Resto di Carlino showed a man with an Italian flag draped over his shoulders being arrested by armed Carabinieri officers a short distance from where he apparently fled his car on foot.

    Italian news reports said the man did a fascist salute as he was arrested, but no salute was visible in the video.

    Right-wing politicians campaigning ahead of national elections on March 4 leaped on the gruesome death of the teenager Pamela Mastropietro to promote their anti-migrant message.

    A preliminary postmortem on the teenager could not immediately identify her cause of death. The Nigerian suspect, who was denied asylum last year but has remained in Italy, has refused to talk to police.

    "What was this worm still doing in Italy?" Matteo Salvini, head of the far-right League, wrote on Facebook, accusing the centre-left government of responsibility for Mastropietro's death for allowing migrants to stay in the country.

    "The left has blood on its hands," he wrote.

    Magistrates say witnesses saw the Nigerian suspect carrying the suitcases that were later found to contain the teenager's body. They also found blood-stained clothes and knives in his possession.

    I wouldn't say this is vigilante justice. This is just a RWNJ using something unconnected to him as an excuse to kill people he doesn't like just because of their skin color and national origin. He's a fucking nutjob just looking for an excuse to murder.

    Yeah, I was going to say the same. Shooting at random people that are also from Africa isn't vigilantism. It's a hate crime.

    Agree.

    *disclaimer* I'm actually pretty much against vigilante justice seeing as how a bunch of white people used to believe that's what they were doing when lynching a bunch of black people. It's always been a way to kill who you want dead without due process. Our legal system if fucked and all cops are bastards but at least people don't usually end up dead (exceptions occur) without some semblance of a trial.

    "Vigilante attack" is the code word they use down here for hate crimes against Aboriginal kids. So any time you see it used in an Australian case, look deeper.

    Update

    Two men should serve short stints in prison for beating a homeless man who was later found dead in Corvallis in 2016, a judge ordered Tuesday.

    Roy Eric Edwards, 50, should spend a total of 19 months behind bars, Benton County Circuit Court Judge Locke Williams ordered. Edwards has been in the Benton County Jail since Oct. 25, 2016. He will be transferred to a state prison to serve the remainder of his sentence.

    Andre Ulysses Tucker, 49, should spend a total of 14 months in incarceration, Williams ordered. Tucker has already spent about 13 months in the county jail. He will be taken to a state prison to finish his sentence.

    Both sentences were the result of plea agreements worked out by prosecutors and defense attorneys.

    Edwards and Tucker individually beat the same man in separate incidents over a two-day span in September 2016 because they mistakenly thought he had been masturbating near the camp of Edwards’ girlfriend. The victim, 50-year-old Stephen Eric Mathews, was found dead in a wooded area near the BMX Track Park off Southeast Chapman Place.

    Prosecutors originally charged Edwards and Tucker with manslaughter. They were set to go to trial Tuesday, but the trial was canceled after each man entered pleas last week. The manslaughter charge was dismissed in both of their cases and the defendants pleaded to lesser charges.

    Tucker entered a guilty plea to attempted second-degree assault, a felony carrying a maximum penalty of five years behind bars. Tucker also pleaded guilty to criminal trespass in a separate case and admitting to violating his probation because he was on probation for a theft case at the time of the assault on Mathews.

    Edwards pleaded no contest to third-degree assault for the attack on Mathews. The charge is a felony carrying a maximum sentence of five years in prison. Edwards also entered a guilty plea to fourth-degree assault for punching a man his girlfriend later identified as the man who was masturbating in front of her. Edwards also pleaded guilty to tampering with a witness for inducing a witness in the case to offer false testimony or withhold testimony. Edwards additionally entered a guilty plea to first-degree theft for an unrelated case.

    On Tuesday, both defendants appeared in court wearing black-and-white striped jail scrubs. Each was shackled at the wrists and ankles.

    Deputy District Attorney Amie Matusko said Mathews was an innocent man who fell victim to “vigilante justice.” She said she believes Tucker and Edwards are guilty of injuring Mathews. She said the prosecution’s evidence shows the defendants’ beatings caused Mathews to suffer a brain bleed, which led to his heart failing. She said Mathews deserves justice.

    However, Matusko said the prosecution had trouble gathering witnesses and was concerned about whether witnesses would show up at trial and would be sober.

    Edward's attorney, Mike Flinn, said the prosecution simply didn’t have enough evidence to convict the men for manslaughter.

    Matusko said Edwards had been sending letters to the district attorney’s office maintaining that he assaulted Mathews but did not kill him. She said she was concerned because there was little remorse displayed in the letters.

    But Flinn said his client did not admit remorse because he did not do what the manslaughter charge asserted he did.

    Edwards told the judge he does have remorse.

    But, “I didn’t kill him,” Edwards maintained. “I know I didn’t.”

    Clark Willes, Tucker's attorney, said he had a private investigator look into the case and that contacting witnesses was “like herding cats in a lot of ways.” He said the prosecution would have had difficulty proving the case.

    Tucker declined to address Williams prior to the judge announcing his sentence.

    Williams said the case was similar to one in which he recently issued a sentence; that case, he noted, also involved vigilante justice. In that case, a man beat a woman with a large wooden dowel outside the Benton County Courthouse because he thought the woman had stolen his cellphone. The woman was injured in the attack. The defendant, Eric Patterson, received a nearly eight-and-a-half-year sentence.

    The judge said the difference was that in Patterson’s case, multiple witnesses came forward to testify at his trial.

    Williams said the fact that Mathews died “is really not lost on this court.”

    It's used more by media & authorities than the public. Labeling it a vigilante attack implies it was a retaliation & that the victim provoked the action in some way. It turns public sentiment against the victim which means there's little outcry when they don't prosecute it as a hate crime or when they inevitably reduce charges/sentencing to the bare minimum, or drop the prosecution altogether.

    Judging by the article re the attack on the homeless man, it's being used the same way in the U.S in at least some cases - ie. attackers claim they're taking justified action over a crime & then target an innocent member of the group they believe was responsible. They target the wrong person because they're either so biased towards the group that they can't differentiate between individual members, or because they're too full of hate towards the group to care to.

    Here's a couple of examples from Western Australia. The kind of attacks described in these articles are happening on a daily basis. In some towns the white population has fb groups where they post photos of Aboriginal boys with their own bikes, lie that the kid's bike is stolen, & suggest someone "mow them down" & recover the bike.

    It's a fucking miracle that only 1 boy's died this way in the past decade. You'd think his death would've made them question their behaviour, but the attacks & threats are still happening now.

    CHris Hansen did an episode on an alleged vigilante attack but there was torture on the victim because the murderers thought the victim was a drug dealer and a rapist in this Chicago area attack from 2011.

    Here in America we hear that the NRA allies are against gun control because they feel that there won't be "good samaritans with guns" to stop the incident. In other words while the anti-NRA people say the NRA defends mass shooters. The pro- NRA people are for the vigilante.

    Update

    Closing arguments were presented in the murder trial of Nicholas D. Masley on March 23 in Lorain County Court of Common Pleas before Judge James L. Miraldi.





    Both the prosecution and defense took the opportunity to make their final arguments to jurors in the case against Masley, 27, who is facing a pair of murder charges and a single count of felonious assault in connection to the Dec. 12, 2013, attack that led to the death of 25-year-old Jeffrey Brooks of Wellington.





    Lorain County Assistant Prosecutor Donna Freeman called the events that led to Brooks? death as an attack, characterizing it as vigilante justice in describing how Masley lured Brooks to the Colonial Oaks mobile home park to smoke marijuana with the intention to ?beat him up,? citing multiple corroborating witnesses.





    ?Nick Masley lured Jeffrey Brooks there with the intent to beat him up and he went too far. And he knowingly caused serious physical harm to Jeffrey Brooks and that?s felony murder because Jeffrey Brooks died,? Freeman said.








    In reviewing the physical evidence, Freeman rejected the defense?s theory that Brooks? death was related to heroin use, citing the autopsy report which concluded the cause and manner of death to be homicide by blunt trauma.





    Further, Freeman cited the testimony of an EMT who treated Brooks at the scene who did not see any signs of intoxications, and a toxicology expert who concluded the amount of heroin found in his system was too low to cause death.





    ?There is no evidence, ladies and gentleman, that suggests a heroin overdose or any form of heroin use caused Jeffrey Brooks? death. All of the testimony shows that the death was caused from the trauma to the back of his head, the spinal cord injuries that caused his brain to swell, cut off his oxygen. He died from the trauma, from the assault of Nicholas Masley,? she said.





    Masley, Freeman told the jurors, ?sucker-punched? Brooks, causing him to initially lose consciousness before striking him two additional times as he was walking down a set of hardwood stairs. After Brooks began shaking and convulsing Masley fled and failed to call 911.





    Defense attorney Kenneth Lieux rejected the prosecution?s claim that Masley?s actions amounted to murder.





    Lieux rejected prosecution theories that the Brooks died from trauma and characterized the altercation as a terrible accident, amounting to assault, citing testimony from medical experts, witnesses and a tape from a police interview suggesting Masley did not intend to cause serious physical harm, and rather that his death was caused by his heroin use.





    Lieux told the jurors the symptoms Brooks experienced were consistent with someone suffering from heroin intoxication, adding the victim had taken heroin multiple times the day of the incident and was administered Narcan twice in the hospital.





    ?All of the significant findings are attributed to Mr. Brooks? use of heroin,? Lieux said. ?That is what killed him, ladies and gentlemen, not the fall. The injuries from the fall were not significant. They were mild.?





    He questioned the physical evidence and force of the punches, rejecting arguments that the punches alone were evidence of Masley?s intent to cause serious physical harm, describing the first punch and two subsequent punches as being of ?moderate force.?





    ?I submit to you that Nick (Masley) just reacted, he was upset,? Lieux said.





    Lieux pointed jurors to a police interview tape and said Masley?s reaction to the altercation suggested he quoting him as saying, ?holy crap, I didn?t mean to do that.?





    ?When you ask yourself, what is the proof of Nick?s intent, what did he knowingly do when he threw those punches and you?ll hear it in the tape. I think this speaks volumes.?





    After Miraldi gave final instructions, Miraldi handed the case to the jury where deliberations are set to begin at 8:30 a.m. March 26.

    A man that RCMP in Port Alberni say is part of an ongoing child luring investigation had to be rescued on Thursday afternoon.

    Police responded to a disturbance call in the 3600 block of Bruce Street during the lunch hour and found the 28-year-old man injured and restrained inside the home.

    He was released from the restraints by police, and taken to hospital for medical attention. Police believe the man was being restrained as a result of vigilante actions. They are now investigating those involved for criminal offences, who could be charged with assault causing bodily harm and forcible confinement.

    “Police want to stress that at no time should the public take the law into their own hands,” said Cpl. Amelia Hayden Port Alberni RCMP.

    “These are serious matters and the police are investigating and taking appropriate steps to address the original complaint filed in March. Vigilante actions like these are not only illegal and put people in danger, but they also have the potential to compromise the original ongoing investigation.”

    Police did not release any names in this incident and no charges have been filed at this time in either case of the child luring, or the forcible confinement.
