JUDGE SENTENCES ‘STREET TERRORISTS’ TO LIFE IN SLAYING OF GARDENA SHOP OWNER
from the story by Larry Altman – The Daily Breeze
Calling a pair of gang members “street terrorists” who chose to play God, a judge Wednesday sentenced them to spend the rest of their lives in prison for robbing and killing a Gardena T-shirt shop owner in 2008.
Jayvion Terrell Galloway, 21, and Zecorey Lamont Marcus, 22, both documented members of the Shotgun Crips gang in Gardena, stared straight ahead as Torrance Superior Court Judge Steven Van Sicklen imposed sentences of life imprisonment without parole.
“You are nothing more than street terrorists,” Van Sicklen said, calling the crime callous, vicious and committed without remorse. “I don’t think you are hearing what I’m saying or care what I’m saying.”

Jason Foreman was like any other 5 year old boy. He loved playing with his brothers and friends in his South Kingston, RI neighborhood because up until the day he went missing it was considered a safe neighborhood.
On May 18, 1978 which was his mothers 25th birthday he was outside playing with his friends and brother when they got into a fight. Like any 5 year old he decided to go home because he was upset. Unfortunately, for him his journey home lead him to walk past Michael Woodmansee’s front yard. The 16-year-old loner was sitting on his front stoop when he called little Jason inside his home.
On October 14, 1990, six-year-old Andrea Atkinson said goodbye to her mommy Ruth Windebank and headed out to play around the Toronto apartment building they lived in. She was a cute little bundle of energy with blonde hair and big blue eyes. She wore a T-shirt with the words “Super Star” emblazoned across it, blue tights and a pink jacket.
Andrea likely anticipated meeting up with her little friends and playing games or with their dolls. She had no idea that a monster was lurking about, and that he’d be the last creature she’d ever see.
A monster to a six-year-old is typically a scary hairy beast hiding under the bed whose plan of attack is luckily foiled by the presence of a nightlight.
CONVICTED CHILD KILLER SENTENCED TO DEATH
from the article by Chris Paschenko – The Galveston County Daily News
A convicted child killer should be put to death, a jury decided Monday in the county’s first death penalty hearing since the mid-1990s.
The jury of seven women and five men that convicted Travis James Mullis on March 11 of capital murder in the stomping death of his 3-month-old son, Alijah, deliberated about three hours before reaching a unanimous decision in favor of the death penalty.
The man called a monster by prosecutors took his infant son from his Alvin mobile home to an isolated berm near Galveston’s East Beach in the early morning hours of Jan. 29, 2008.
I can not grasp the concept of someone looking at a child, or really anyone for that matter and having the urge to beat them into unconsciousness. Abuse of a child is the most evil and vile of any crime imaginable. Once someone has crossed that line they are no longer a human being in my in mind nor do they deserve to be treated as one.
I understand being under extreme stress and trying to make ends meet. I even understand working all day and coming home to a screaming, tired and hungry kid that has gotten on your last nerve. I’ve been there, but never would I harm one of my kids or anyone else’s. Some people are not meant to be parents. Unfortunately, there is no legal way that I’m aware of to stop them from conceiving. That would be infringing on their rights.
There are no lengths to which people will go to defend idiots. There has to be a default switch that some people are obviously born without. How else can you explain these ass-hats? A stupidity epidemic?
Most people know that babies are small, small versions of human beings. That said, the sad excuse for a father in this story does not. And apparently the many women in his life who are leaping to his defense, are also without a functioning brain.
In an apparent effort to ensure that infants do not grow up too soft, Kevin Taylor engages the babies he has access to in what must be his version of “Fight Club for Infants”.
MULLIS CONVICTED IN STOMPING DEATH OF INFANT SON
from the article by Harvey Rice – The Houston Chronicle
Few were surprised when a Galveston County jury took only an hour on Friday to convict Travis James Mullis of capital murder for stomping his 3-month-old son to death more than two years ago.
As the verdict was read, Mullis, 24, sat with his hand over his mouth, as he had for most of the five-day trial, betraying no emotion.
The defense asked that the jury be polled, and state District Judge John Ellisor asked each juror whether he or she agreed with the guilty verdict. Each said yes.
Well, not exactly, in this case. Someone calling themselves Carrie S. Dash, apparently a relative of Christina Grafner, the biological mother of poor little Chandler Grafner, has a problem with PYSIH. In order to explain, I need to quote our story on this case:
Take the family of 26-year-old Jon Phillips and his 22-year-old common-law wife Sarah Berry, for instance. At best, they could be described as incompetent parents. At worst…
Jon Phillips was the guardian of 7-year-old Chandler Grafner. Chandler was given into “Daddy Jon’s” custody after Chandler’s mother (Christina Grafner) was arrested during a traffic stop on the 26th of March, 2007, for possessing drug paraphernalia. During that traffic stop, Chandler’s mom, who used to be in a relationship with Jon Phillips, had her sons in the back seat. According to the officer who made the arrest, both boys looked very thin and complained of being hungry. In the officer’s report, he wrote that the boys had told him they hadn’t eaten in three days.
