My mom used to force me to do a lot of things while I was growing up that I really wasn’t too fond of, who’s hasn’t? She made me take out the trash, clean my room, feed the dog, watch after my younger monsters, er, I mean brothers, do my homework—and man, I thought she was atrocious. I couldn’t wait to move out of the house and be a self-sufficient adult, not realizing I’d have to do all that and more. I am grateful to my mom for everything she taught me and made me do. I’m thankful I have a normal mom.
Meet twenty year old Brittany Deanne Schuetz of Santa Ana, California. When Brittany isn’t streaking her hair or plucking her eyebrows, she likes to kick back, relax, and knock back a couple of drinkie-poos with her friends. After tying more than one on, Brittany likes to get in her car and drive. Really fast.
On the evening of January 31st, 2009, Brittany attended a party in the City of Sherman Oaks with a group of friends. A designated driver was reported to have driven Brittany to the party, along with the others from a residence in Whittier, where the party-goers met up earlier that evening. When the group was done with the festivities in Sherman Oaks, the designated driver drove the group, including Brittany, back to the residence.
MAN GETS LIFE FOR KILLING WIFE, HER MOM, PUTTING BODIES ON ICE
by LARRY WELBORN
The Orange County Register
SANTA ANA, CA – An Irvine man was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole today for stabbing his wife and mother-in-law to death in August 2006 and leaving their bodies in an ice-filled bathtub.
Bahram Nazeri, 51, Irvine, was found guilty by a jury last month of two felony counts of murder plus the special circumstance of committing multiple murders, which qualified him for a no-parole sentence.
He sat emotionless at a counsel table as Superior Court Judge Richard Toohey handed down the maximum sentence.
CLEAN SLATES FOR YOUTHS SENTENCED FRAUDULENTLY
By John Schwartz
The New York Times
The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania on Thursday ordered the slate cleaned for hundreds of youths who had been sentenced by a corrupt judge.
The young people had been sent to privately run detention centers from 2003 to 2008 as part of a judicial kickback scheme that shocked Pennsylvania and the nation. The judge in the cases, Mark A. Ciavarella Jr. of Luzerne County, is one of two who pleaded guilty last month to wire fraud and conspiracy for taking more than $2.6 million in kickbacks.
The exact number of records to be expunged was not stated in the court’s order; a special master is investigating the cases.
Since I started coming to People You’ll See In Hell, they’re have been a few stories that have made me go, “What the fuck?”. You folks have probably had a “What the fuck?” moment too while reading a story about somebody we did a story about. Maybe it was the The Dnepropetrovsk Maniacs that did it for you. It could have been Ariel Smith, the chick who tossed a 5 month old child into a clothes dryer and turned it on. Speaking for myself, any of of the half-dozen or so people on this blog who starved their children to death always bring out the “What the fuck?” in me.
I was thinking about how long I’ve been involved with People You’ll See In Hell. I guess I started lurking in back in late 2007, and throughout the whole time leading up to today, the one group of people that proved the most frustrating are the family, friends and supporters of people who get written up on our site.
Most of the people who’ve been here a while remember the reaction from the family of Timothy Poling after admin did a story about him. How satisfying for the good guys was it to see him convicted and receive a life sentence? And yet his family refused to let up. As a matter of fact, I was threatened by one of his relatives which amused the hell out of me.
It is no new news that public education is taking a big hit in this economy. Schools are having to increase the size of classes, hold off on purchasing much needed supplies, and lay off qualified staff which are assets to the system. This past week, three people I know received the dreaded “pink slip” and were informed that they should not bank on having a job next year. And these are educated, experienced individuals who are good at what they do.

This young man is 25-year-old Benjamin Butler.
Like a lot of young men, Benny here likes to go out and have a few drinks with mates. Actually, to be totally accurate, Benny likes to wipe himself out with alcohol, jump in his car and plow down little girls.
Thats exactly what he did one morning in mid April 2008.
His victims were 11-month-old Gracie Moorby and her mother Tania Moorby. Tania suffered broken ribs, liver and shoulder damage and multiple cuts and bruises when Butler’s V8 Holden Monaro drove into her and Gracie as they checked their own letter box in Thornlie Western Australia. They were a mere few steps from the safety of their front door, but Butler’s choices that morning ensured that someone was going to suffer.
