Adam Purinton – Austin’s Bar & Grill Shooter

Austin’s Bar and Grill has been my Cheer’s Bar since 2001. It’s a place myself, my friends, my family all enjoy to visit. On Wednesday February 22, 2017 this man, Adam Purinton targeted two Garmin engineers of Indian decent. He made statements that the men were in the country illegally. They weren’t. He continued to cause a disruption until he was removed by the manager. Shortly after, Purinton returned with a handgun and shot 3 people, killing one.

32-year-old Alok Madasani was shot, 24-year-old Ian Grillot attempted to intervene and was shot along with Srinivas Kuchibhotla, a 32-year-old who was killed. Purinton yelled “Get out of my country!” as he unloaded his weapon on the patio of the Olathe, Kansas bar. Inside confusion unfolded as patrons scrambled to exit out the back. Hearing the repeated popping, a couple seated at the bar stumbled and fell as they ran out the rear exit. “A noise you can’t get out of your head.” They said.

The FBI is involved to determine if this qualifies as a hate crime, meanwhile Adam Purinton, 51 sits in Johnson County Detention on $2,000,000 bond with his first court appearance set for Monday, February 27, 2017.

Michael Cade – Olathe Murderer, Kidnapper & Rapist

michael cade, olathe kansas murder, kidnapping and rapistThe Investigation Discovery Channel is featuring this case on an episode of Ice Cold Killers to air this Tuesday, Feb 23, 2016 at 7pm CT.

Michael Cade, 21 at the time, turned the small town of Olathe, Kansas upside down with his actions the night of January 28th, 1983.

He’s a monster. – Paul Duffield

Cade has said he randomly selected John and Carole Duffield’s Olathe home to break into and reign terror on. He entered the home with a two-pound hammer, beating 15 year-old Paul Duffield and leaving him for dead, before moving on to his next child victim. He beat 12 year-old Janelle to death with the same hammer. Kelly, the Duffield’s 17 year-old daughter was forced from the house by Cade. Her body was found 10 days later at Frisco Lake. She had been raped, beaten and left to die alone, in a drainage ditch.

Cade was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder and one count each of rape, aggravated kidnapping, aggravated battery, aggravated burglary and robbery.

Under today’s laws, Cade would be eligible for the death penalty. However, with no death penalty in Kansas at the time, he was sentenced to life and eligible for parole. His first opportunity came in 1998 and again in 2008. Denied both times, with campaigns against his release being led by the Duffield family. His next chance happens in 2018.

John Duffield passed in 1998 and Carole in 2011. All deceased members of the Duffields are laid to rest at Oak Lawn Memorial Gardens in Olathe, KS.

Kansas – Before You Vote, Read About Rape, Murder and Survival

Carr Jonathon Carr Reginald

Brothers Jonathon (L) and Reginald (R) Carr are currently incarcerated as the result of a week’s worth of heinous crimes in Wichita, KS.

What came to be known as “The Wichita Horror” the two brothers were originally sentenced to death for robbery, killing a dog, rape and murder. A night of crime that after reading the details of the evening, you will not easily forget. A night they raped multiple women, sexually humiliated all 5 and murdered 4 people, 1 survivor. Execution style.

Read the detailed description here at Crime Library

What does this story have to do with Election Day tomorrow November 4, 2014?

For Kansas, 2 of the Supreme Court Justices are up for affirmation of appointments.

Since the two men were sentenced to death, (Dec 2002), the Kansas Supreme Court has overturned the sentence, (July 2014) ruling that the trial judge erred in refusing to conduct separate penalty phases for the two men. The court affirmed their conviction, but ruled the case violated the 8th amendment.

The lone survivor and remaining victims families have since started a non-profit called Kansans For Justice. Calling for the public to VOTE NO and remove Kansas Supreme Court Justices Eric Rosen and Lee Johnson. The only two currently up for reappointment.

Whether you believe this to be ruled by emotion, or justice is the question that is before Kansas Voters tomorrow. How would / will you vote?
