    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.

    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.
