K.A. Krisko (kakrisko) | 1264 comments It seems like it's happening every day. Just a couple days ago several officers were shot in Bailey, CO, where I used to work, a town of probably 1000 people if even that.

Fishface | 11853 comments Wait, KA, whose name is Fink? I read the article and that name doesn't appear in it...Oh, wait, you mean the other guy, but it appears that good old Aron finked on himself. If you don't want to get arrested, don't solicit that sort of activity on the Internet. Or off of it. That's my advice.

According to the comments after the article, the person being hanged was white, but had a hood over his head. I don't know where he got his information. I personally don't see how the person who complained determined the man was black since the figure is so small, but they were looking at it in person.

Yes it is definitely a 'joke' that is in very poor taste.

...is now the oldest living person in the world. He is a Holocaust survivor, the only member of his family who made it out of Auschwitz alive, and has made it to age 112, thank you very much. Moving to Israel and outliving an entire generation of Nazis who did their level best to kill you is truly the best revenge.

Fishface | 11853 comments The bad thing about that schmuck getting the death penalty is that a lot of those guys seek capital punishment so his debt can be paid and he can go terrorize his wife and kids in the afterlife. And at the same time he can feel like a big fat victim of the mean old system.

Fishface | 11853 comments Police said they used DNA to identify Jurvetson after her sister recognized a photo posted of the young woman's body online.

The sister, Anne Jurvetson, told People that the "free-spirited and happy" teen went to Los Angeles after meeting and becoming smitten with "John."

Anne Jurvetson said her sister sent her family a postcard saying she had found an apartment and was happy but that they never heard from her again after that. Her parents never reported her missing because "they thought that she was just living her life somewhere," Anne Jurvetson said.

Eventually, she said she came to realize that her sister was probably dead.

Los Angeles police have identified the body of a woman found stabbed 150 times in 1969 near the site of the Manson family killings as a 19-year-old from Montreal, People magazine reported Wednesday.

Police have identified the woman as Reet Jurvetson, who moved to Los Angeles from Montreal the year she was killed, according to People.

Los Angeles police Detective Luis Rivera told the magazine that investigators can't rule out that the Manson family was involved in the killing. He said the best lead police have is a man known as "John," whom Jurvetson met in Toronto before flying to Los Angeles to see him the summer of 1969.

Jurvetson's body was found Nov. 16, 1969, by a birdwatcher in dense brush off the iconic Mulholland Drive. She had been stabbed 150 times and didn't have identification.

"It was personal," Rivera told People. "It was a maniac ... or love gone wrong."

After going unidentified for years, Jurvetson eventually became known Jane Doe No. 59. The location and timing of her killing, just a few miles away from several Manson family murders, has long fueled speculation that Jurvetson's case was connected.

Police are working to solve the murder, with Rivera saying, "No one deserves what happened to her."

"It's our job to find out who's responsible and bring them to justice," he said.

"It is such a sad, helpless kind of feeling to always question, to never know," she said. "After all these years, we are faced with hard facts. My little sister was savagely killed."

Manson became notorious in 1969 as the leader of a "family" of young killers that terrified Los Angeles. Manson was convicted of killing seven people, including pregnant actress Sharon Tate, the wife of director Roman Polanski.

K.A. Krisko (kakrisko) | 1264 comments So, Fish, do you recall anyone associated with the Manson family who went by the nickname John? It's not ringing a bell for me.
