The isolation and strangeness are palpable even in a two-minute clip from the movie “My Friend Dahmer.”

Based on the graphic novel and cautionary tale written by high school friend of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, the 2017 film captures both the retro 1970s setting, as well as the ominous aura of a young man who would dominate the national headlines at the start. 90 after his arrest for murder in connection with the death and dismemberment of 17 men.

Ross Lynch is shown in a scene from the 2017 film,

“My Friend Dahmer” will be screened Friday at 7 p.m. at the Canton Palace Theater as part of the Canton Film Festival.

“The talent we have in this region is quite impressive,” said James Waters of the Canton Film Fest. “And a lot of the people who worked on the movie (Dahmer) are Ohio people.”

“My Friend Dahmer” is particularly timely due to renewed interest in the Dahmer case following the recent release of a new 10-episode Netflix series about the serial killer which has garnered nearly $200 million. hours of viewing, according to IndieWire.

He said that the world’s understanding of terrorism has increased much more than before. The world will not tolerate this. Countries that use terrorism are under pressure. “Whenever a country is targeted, an appropriate response is given. I would say that is also an example of diplomacy.

Listen to this article here

Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story started streaming on Netflix in late September and it’s been one of the hottest topics on social media ever since.

I got into the latest frenzy when I was browsing Facebook and came across a status from a friend of mine who is a black, gay man. He said, “Dammer. I don’t watch it. You all appreciate.

Because I didn’t know the story, I watched it over the weekend and immediately understood why he and others were so against the show. It’s bloody, traumatic, triggering and really, just not what we need.

Jeffrey Dahmer was a deranged serial killer and cannibal whose the reign of terror began in the late 1970s. Over 13 years, he murdered 17 mostly gay boys and men of color until he was captured in 1991 when he attempted to murder his 18th victim.

Jeffrey Dahmer’s story back on the big screen

Although the series is well written, directed, and acted, it brought to light the lingering injustices and traumas that the black community still faces today. Clearly there is no rush to protect black communities, especially when it comes to protecting them from white people.

And second, it perpetuates this persistent trend of traumatic pornography and sensational murder and criminal activity for entertainment and profit.

Co-creators Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan have done a good job of providing a different, rawer portrayal of how the city of Milwaukee — specifically the police department — has been grossly negligent in its handling and possible prevention of murders. However, this effort was somewhat canceled in the attempt to humanize Dahmer.

One of the main characters in the limited biographical crime drama is Glenda Cleveland (played by Niecey Nash) who is Jeffrey Dahmer’s neighbor in the predominantly black, low-income community. It’s worth noting that in real life, Cleveland didn’t live next door to Dahmer (played by Evan Peters). She makes it lived in the building next to the Oxford flats but in an effort to focus on the police’s bias, the writers merged her with another neighbor into a single character.

In the film, Glenda repeatedly and desperately calls the Milwaukee Police Department to report strange happenings at Dahmer’s apartment – physical struggles between people, screaming, intolerable smells of what Dahmer claims is stale food but actually rotting flesh. For the most part, its alerts are ignored.

One of the most egregious incidents occurred when Dahmer was victimized 14 years old Konerak Sinthasomphone. Konerak managed to escape when Dahmer went to the liquor store and was found naked, drugged and incoherent outside the Oxford apartments. When the police arrived on the scene, Glenda begged them to investigate but Dahmer convinced them that Sinthasomphone was her overly drunk boyfriend who was upset because they had a disagreement. The police allowed Dahmer to take Sinthasomphone in his apartment where he was eventually murdered.

Ronald Flowers was also another potential victim of Dahmer.

In the series, Flowers was drugged by Dahmer at his grandmother’s house after accepting help with her broken down car. Dahmer’s grandmother, suspected of her grandson’s activities, sat with Flowers in the living room until he was somewhat coherent. She then orders Dahmer to escort Flowers to public transportation so he can return home.

Flowers eventually ends up in the hospital where he discovers he was drugged. When he goes to the police department to file a complaint and drives the officer to Dahmer’s house, the officer dismisses his claims that it was his word against Jeffrey’s. While Flowers was able to escape with his life, Dahmer’s murder spree continued three years after this incident.

The families of the victims outraged by the film

Despite portraying the Dahmer murders in terms of injustice, the families of the victims and others are embarrassed by the series.

Rita Isbell, sister of Errol Lindsey, one of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims, shared his thoughts with Initiated. She said neither she nor her family were contacted by Netflix during the making of the series and that watching the scene of her confrontation with Dahmer in the courtroom was again traumatic.

In a tweetanother member of the Isbell family says:I don’t tell anyone what to watch, I know true crime media is huge, but if you’re really curious about the victims, my family (the Isbells) are pissed off about this show. It’s re-traumatizing again and again, and why? How many movies/shows/documentaries do we need? »

Another Twitter user said“Wait?? why did Netflix remake a documentary about Jeffrey Dahmer like there weren’t already 3 previous documentaries on it? Capitalism is sick and it really upsets the victims.

There is already several films and documentaries on the Milwaukee Cannibal. Do we need another? Regardless of the attempt to shine a light on police bias against black and LGBTQ+ communities (which we are all aware of) and offer more information on why Jeffrey Dahmer murdered and dismembered 17 men and boys innocent, the families of the victims could’ve done without reliving the trauma of losing their loved ones. And the world would be better off without another disturbing “entertainment” romanticizing a serial killer.

Again terrorists attacked Kaduna and abducted two leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as they returned from a meeting with Christian leaders in Kafanchan, south Kaduna. The assailants opened fire on party leaders, who were accompanying APC gubernatorial candidate, Senator Uba Sani, to Kafanchan for political engagement at Tashar Icce village, along the busy Kaduna -Kachia Thursday evening.

Although the state police command has yet to release a statement on the attack, a source said some of the victims were receiving medical treatment at 44 Military Hospital in the state.

Among those abducted were the Kajuru APC House of Assembly candidate, identified as Madaki, and the party’s deputy chairman of the Kajuru local council, Reuben Waziri.

Waziri’s relative, Ben Maigari, confirmed the abduction, adding that the family had not yet been contacted by the kidnappers. It should be recalled that the gubernatorial candidates of the different political parties met with Christian leaders in Kafanchan.

As many as three thousand clergy and Christian leaders from 11 local councils that make up South Kaduna met and interacted with gubernatorial candidates seeking to rule Kaduna State in 2023.

The meeting, which was labeled “Southern Kaduna Pastor’s Congress”, had five gubernatorial candidates except People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Isa Ashiru and Action Democratic Congress (ADC), Senator Caleb Zagi. , who apologized for not being able to attend.

Among the candidates present were candidates from the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Uba Sani; Action Alliance (AA), Mr. Timothy Adamu; New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Senator Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi; All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Dr. Andrew Duya; and Labor Party (LP).

NOT revoking the license of a loyalist murderer for sending a threatening letter to the daughter of one of his victims was unlawful and unreasonable, the High Court has heard.

A judge has heard that Garfield Beattie behaved “flagrantly” in targeting Denise Mullen in correspondence believed to be from the same terrorist organization behind her father’s murder.

Ms Mullen and the son of another man who was murdered by the 66-year-old are challenging the decision not to refer his case to the parole board members.

Beattie, of Moss Road in Portadown, served 16 years in prison for three murders carried out by the so-called Glenanne gang, a notorious loyalist unit which operated at the height of the Troubles.

Among his victims were Denis Mullen, shot at his home near Moy, Co Tyrone in 1975, and Patrick McNeice in Co Armagh a year later.

In December last year he received a further 17 months after being found guilty of attempting to bully Mr Mullen’s daughter Denise. He had sent her a letter signed by the East Tyrone Ulster Volunteer Force.

Ms Mullen and Patrick McNeice’s son John then both insisted that Beattie’s license for life imprisonment be revoked. But earlier this year, the Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Panel decided not to order his recall.

Lawyers for relatives say it was wrong not to refer Beattie’s case to the parole board.

Ms Mullen’s lawyer, Desmond Fahy KC, described the circumstances as “stark and disturbing”.

Tony McGleenan KC, Respondent, argued that the safeguards under the life sentence order were deployed by the relevant agencies at every stage of the process.

Judge Colton reserved judgment.

WARNING: This story contains disturbing details.

Nicole Moostoos was jolted awake by her crying daughter who rushed into her bedroom.

“She told me that my mother and Creedon had been stabbed.”

It was around 6 a.m. on September 4. Moostoos, 41, jumped up in panic, put on some clothes and headed for the door.

She has traveled the road to her mother Arlene in James Smith’s Cree Nation countless times before.

This time she ran.

“As I was running there were bodies lying on the ground.”

With tears in her eyes, Moostoos recalled walking past the house where Bonnie Goodvoice-Burns lived with her family.

The yard had become a crime scene.

The Goodvoice-Burns family said the woman died trying to protect her son Gregory, known as Jonesy, during the stabbing in the community.

A community crisis worker, Gloria Burns, was also killed trying to help them.

Moostoos said she wanted to offer CPR or some sort of assistance, but a woman at the scene said it was too late.

“They were already gone.”

Moostoos continued to his mother. A friend picked her up on the way.

She thought her mother, 65, would already be in an ambulance on the way to hospital, but when Moostoos arrived her mother and younger brother Creedon, 26, were still injured on the ground.

They were told that the paramedics could not come because the RCMP had told them to stay put.

Waiting for help at the band office

They picked up Moostoos’ bloodied mother and brother and brought them to the band’s office, which houses a health clinic.

They wanted to take the victims to the hospital, but had no choice but to wait for ambulances.

With so many injured, paramedics had to sort through and wait for directions from the RCMP. The men who police believe were responsible for the attacks remain at large.

“I kept begging them to take my mom, take my mom,” Moostoos said.

“Take Creedon, at least. Go on !

Moostoos sat in the band’s office, holding her mother’s injured stomach.

“She asked me to lie there and pray with her.”

Moostoos said people at the band office worked hard to keep the injured calm amid the chaos.

More and more injured people kept coming forward. Slowly Moostoos began to understand just how widespread the pain was.

“People kept coming and coming and telling me who was gone, and it was just unreal. Unreal,” she said.

It was like a nightmare.

“You wake up the next day and you think it was a bad dream and everything comes rushing back.”

Ten people were killed in the rampage in the small community where virtually everyone knows each other and nearby Weldon, Saskatchewan.

Moostoos said she is related to most of the victims, “except that old man in Weldon. God bless his soul.”

She also knew the suspects, Myles and Damien Sanderson, from when they were little boys.

Damien, 31, was found dead near one of 13 crime scenes the day after James Smith’s Cree Nation attack. Police said her injuries did not appear to be self-inflicted.

Her brother Myles, 32, was arrested following an extensive three-and-a-half-day manhunt but was pronounced dead in hospital after entering what RCMP described as a medical distress.

A targeted house

Myles Sanderson had previously threatened Moostoos’ family.

Moostoos said he threatened to attack one of his brothers – who worked at a local store – with a gun and hurt his family.

“He said he was going to burn the house down while we were there.”

They reported him to the police.

Documents from the Parole Board of Canada indicate that in 2017, Sanderson “got into an argument with an employee of a First Nations band store, tried to fight the victim, then threatened to murder him and to burn down his parents’ house.

“My mom was so scared,” Moostoos said.

There was some relief after Myles was arrested in 2018 and sent to prison.

But on September 4, months after disappearing from the authorities’ radar, he came looking for his family.

“He kicked the door open,” Moostoos said.

The brother Myles had previously threatened was not home at the time. Moostoos said his mother was sleeping when Myles came into her bedroom.

“My mother was already afraid of [Myles]and she wakes up and sees him standing there…”

Moostoos paused, searching for words to describe the terror of that moment and the hurt his mother had suffered.

“But my mother is a strong woman. I know her heart. She will learn to forgive,” she said.

Moostoos said forgiveness is important within his family. His mother, Arlene, is a survivor of the former Muscowequan Indian Residential School.

“She won’t let this [violence] take back her house, because that’s where she has memories with my father.”

They lost her father, also a residential school survivor, in March.

Moostoos couldn’t imagine losing his mother too.

Since the attacks, Moostoos has lived in Saskatoon with his mother and brother, both of whom required intensive care in hospital.

We are strong, resilient people at James Smith, and I see that every day.-Nicole Moostoos

So far, she has only returned to James Smith Cree Nation to attend funerals and wakes.

She lost her “sister”, Carol Burns, whom she admired for years, her nephew Thomas (Carol’s son), Bobby Sanderson (the father of two of her children), her cousin Earl Burns Sr., and Christian Head, known as Chicken, who was the father of his niece and nephew.

“It didn’t really hit me until I got there and had to say goodbye.”

Moostoos is grateful that her mother and brother are physically on the mend.

His mother is still in hospital, one of the last survivors still in treatment, but they hope she will be released later this week. Creedon, who protected his mother the night she was attacked in her bedroom, was released on Thursday.

“He’s quick to protect his family, that’s for sure. He’s got a big heart,” Moostoos said.

Ongoing support needed

Moostoos worries about the youngest – children, cousins, nieces and nephews – who have seen loved ones mutilated.

“It was just too much for the people who witnessed it. Too much for the people who were there.”

Moostoos said the support offered in the aftermath of the tragedy – prayers, donations and help on the ground – was so important.

She said the support must continue. Community members will need the long-term help of mental health professionals, elders, police and leaders to heal.

She hopes this tragedy will force people to address other long-standing issues, many of which relate to intergenerational trauma.

“We try to be cycle breakers, because residential schools certainly hurt us.”

Although Moostoos is still visibly upset by what happened, she said she wasn’t mad at the Sanderson family.

“I feel for Myles and Damien’s family,” Moostoos said.

“I pray for them. I contacted them and told them that I was there for them and should not be blamed.”

Moostoos believes the murderous rampage was fueled in part by drugs.

She said methamphetamine is rampant and taking hold of young people.

“We have to put our foot on the drug dealers. When they are known drug traffickers, nothing is done,” she said.

“These people are related to some people who don’t want to care or just sweep it under the rug.”

A nice reserve

Moostoos said James Smith is a nice reserve full of good people with good hearts.

But she said lingering issues such as addiction need to be addressed to prevent further trauma.

“We are strong, resilient people in James Smith, and I see him every day. I saw him at wakes, funerals, we all got together,” she said.

“But it wasn’t supposed to happen. None of this should have happened.”

Citizens face terror during home invasions https://capperi.net/citizens-face-terror-during-home-invasions/ Sun, 18 Sep 2022 13:09:53 +0000 https://capperi.net/citizens-face-terror-during-home-invasions/

CHARLES KONG-SOO

Home invasion perpetrators that have become frequent over the past few months are using increasingly violent and brutal tactics against citizens in several communities across the country. This struck fear into many victims as people became vulnerable in their homes.

These criminals are well armed and use any type of weapon, from firearms to cutlasses, to kill, beat, torture, assault or maim their victims before stealing money, jewelry, electronic devices, household items or any form of valuables on the victim’s property before making a hasty exit.

In some cases, criminals show no mercy for women, children or even the elderly.

The trauma of being attacked and beaten and, in some cases, being left for dead can mentally haunt victims for a long time. Others, meanwhile, find the strength to face the test and ensure that they are prepared should another such attack occur.

A St Clair homeowner who was the victim of a violent home invasion a few months ago and survived the harrowing ordeal has recounted his experience and that of his family at the hands of marauding bandits.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the landlord said: “Imagine being woken up at night by intruders in your home, being ambushed as you are about to enter your home, tied up and beaten in your house while your house is ransacked, and see your family being tied up and beaten before your eyes.

A home invader caught on camera using his cell phone to communicate with his underworld coordinator/controller while committing a home invasion/robbery.

A home invader caught on camera using his cell phone to communicate with his underworld coordinator/controller while committing a home invasion/robbery.

“Home invasion crimes are on the increase. Home invasion crimes differ in that victims will experience physical harm and severe long-term traumatic stress requiring professional psychological counseling, although, many victims do not never fully recover. In addition to the victims, the direct family, loved ones and friends will also suffer from the long-term psychological effects of the trauma.”

He said traditionally home invasions were the domain of uniquely skilled burglars who could pick locks or exploit weaknesses in a home’s physical security and, upon entry, steal items and then seek to escape. rapidly.

But now, he says, the bandits are getting more direct and brazen in their attacks.

The criminals, he said, come to your premises and enter your property either by brute force or by ambushing the victims as they leave their vehicles and enter their premises.

He revealed that it was now the norm for criminals to inflict physical violence on victims for several hours and more often during the day.

In Westmoorings on February 23, 2022, at around 8 a.m. three gunmen jumped the wall of the property and attempted to enter the house.

Two of the bandits were shot by one of the occupants of the house with his licensed firearm.

Sadly, during the exchange of gunfire, one of the people living in the compound, businesswoman Nicole Moses, was shot and killed as she tried to get her family to safety.

In an incident unrelated to a home invasion a few months later, a police officer attached to the Port-of-Spain forensic department and his elderly mother were robbed by two bandits, one armed with a a firearm, August 21, 2022.

And days before this incident, a 29-year-old woman was tied up and robbed from her home in Princes Town by two bandits armed with a cutlass and a hammer on August 9, 2022.

Correlation between burglaries and stolen cars

The St Clair owner, who is also a businessman and computer technician, argued there was a link between home invasions and organized car theft rings. The owner said the pattern of these crimes was always the same with bandits using stolen cars with fake license plates.

He explained that the stolen car would remain parked on the roadway with the getaway driver waiting in the car while the other gang members entered the property to rob and beat the victims.

The man noted that the vehicles of choice were usually relatively new passenger car models such as Hyundai, Kia or Toyota.

He said that contrary to popular belief, these criminals do not go to neighborhoods with low-end Nissan Tiida cars because of the stigma associated with such cars which would arouse suspicion. According to him, newer car models attract less attention.

The owner of St Clair, who has an in-depth knowledge of electronic systems in vehicles, said most modern cars cannot be easily broken into and “wired” because many of them use RFID chip keys (Radio Frequency Identification).

Car theft network based in the center and north

Dirk Barnes, security analyst and CEO of 868 Tactical Limited, a retired major in the T&T Defense Force (TTDF), also shared a similar view on the link between home invasions and car thefts.

Barnes, whose company recovers stolen cars and provides security assets for homes and businesses, said there was not just one auto theft ring, but several different organizations with different goals.

He revealed that there was a network of car thieves based in the Center and North region extending in Bamboo to Couva.

Barnes explained that this particular organization specializes in boosting or stealing mostly smaller vehicles, and modifying or cloning them.

He further explained that if a vehicle was stolen or written off, the car theft gang would steal the same model of vehicle and change the chassis number to that of the stolen or written off vehicle that was registered for criminal use.

The same gang of car thieves, he said, will also attempt to steal vehicles now leaving different links and ports and most Roll on Roll Off (RORO) vehicles are stolen in this way.

Other smaller organizations will steal vehicles for other crimes, he said. They ranged from high-end vehicles to very cheap vehicles to appear low-key depending on the neighborhood they were going to “drop wuk” in.

Barnes said a criminal organization carrying out home invasions might have one or two people in the group who could be charged with the responsibility of securing stolen cars for future jobs.

He revealed that when a car is stolen it is taken to one location to ‘cool down’ for 24-36 hours and then it is taken to another location with the license plate changed and waiting to be used for a future robbery.

Sergeant Christopher Swamber of the T&T Police Service’s Stolen Vehicle Squad (TTPS) promised to contact the Sunday Guardian but did not respond until late yesterday. CoP McDonald Jacob did not respond to Sunday Guardian WhatsApp messages sent over a week ago about a possible link to home invasions and car thefts.

Pakistan has been a victim of terror, the country’s Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said Friday in his speech at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Uzbekistan.

Connecting the situation in Afghanistan with his country in the presence of world leaders, he stressed, “It will be a big mistake if we ignore Afghanistan this time. It is my country’s considered opinion that the counter-terrorism operation in Afghanistan should proceed alongside the SCO support apart from humanitarian aid.”

“Pakistan has been a victim of terrorism. I need not go into its history. But suffice it to say that we have made enormous sacrifices to defeat the monster of terrorism. Thousands of Pakistanis have been martyred – brothers, sisters, mothers,” he said.

“Even today, if you see anyone limping on the roads of Pakistan, they might as well have been a victim of terrorism. There can be no greater protest to collectively fight against this menace. We must fight the threat of extremism and wipe off the face of the Earth,” the Pakistani Prime Minister stressed.

Earlier this week, HT reported how the country allegedly all but reneged on the leadership of outlawed terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed in a bid to get off the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) gray list.

Greylisting means that a country has been placed by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the global terrorist finance watchdog, under heightened scrutiny to check its progress on anti-money laundering and anti-money laundering measures. financing of terrorism. Speaking on one of the country’s worst floods in years, Shehbaz Sharif said on Friday – at the summit – that millions of homes were damaged while 1,400 people – including 400 children – were killed in the deluge . “I’ve been in public life for 40 years, but I haven’t seen this kind of devastation,” the country’s prime minister told world leaders.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had recently expressed concern over flooding in the neighboring country.

England captain Jos Buttler hopes they and Pakistan can play an exciting series of cricket to lift the spirits of millions of people suffering from the devastating floods in the country.

The English arrived on Thursday for their first tour of Pakistan in 17 years to play seven Twenty20s from next week and prepare for the T20 World Cup next month in Australia. “These are difficult times that the people of Pakistan are facing with the floods,” Buttler said.

“As a team we are making a donation which will be matched by the (England and Wales Cricket Board) also to try and do a small part to help those in need at this time.

Hopefully some exciting cricket games will also be a little tonic to lift the spirits. The massive floods have affected over 33 million people and displaced more than half a million who are still living in tents and makeshift shelters. The water destroyed 70% of the wheat, cotton and other crops in Pakistan. At one point, a third of the country’s territory was submerged.
Most of the England players, including Buttler, are touring Pakistan for the first time. But recalls Alex Hales, Moeen Ali and Liam Dawson have appeared in the Pakistan Super League.

Ben Stokes, Chris Jordan and Liam Livingstone skipped the tour but are part of England’s T20 World Cup squad. Buttler is recovering from a calf injury and is expected to miss a few games. Ali is expected to lead the team in his absence. “We’re in a bit of a unique situation with a few injured guys and we’ll be fit in time for the World Cup, but not necessarily fit here,” Buttler said.

“Obviously the main objective for everyone is to get to Australia fully prepared to go to this World Cup.” England were due to play three T20s in Pakistan ahead of the T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates last year, but canceled the tour after New Zealand halted their white ball tour for security reasons.

The ECB’s decision has been called disrespectful by the Pakistan Cricket Board, which has worked tirelessly to convince other leading countries such as South Africa, the West Indies, Bangladesh, Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka and Australia to tour after the 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lanka team in Lahore. The port city of Karachi will host four T20s from September 20-25, and the rest will be in Lahore from September 28-October 2.
