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?

19 Year-Old Sarah Brooke Gonzales McLinn murders 52 Year-Old Lawrence Boss

Sarah Brooke Gonzales McLinn

Sarah Brooke Gonzales McLinn was missing and her roommate / boss Harold Sasko had been discovered murdered. Lawrence was worried they had a murderer and abductor on their hands. Everyone just knew they we going to announce the found body of Sarah at any moment and she would be another murder in the long-time squeeky clean books of Lawrence, Kansas.

Scratch that…

As more time passed, and this poor 19 year-old girl had yet to be found, concern for her welfare seemed to have waned. As if, could it be, she may know something. You know how the police can have that, silence means everything tone. Well, put that here. Because the Facebook pages trying to find poor helpless Sarah kinda slowed, and she wasn’t making the nightly news anymore. But what could this mean???

Well, they found her. And, of course like many other fugitives, she was hiding in Florida. The Sunshine State. Where you go to wash away your troubles, with sunbeams and ocean waves. Except, she was illegally camping in Harold’s car in a park in the Everglades. Awakened by police from the backseat she was taken into custody for being in the park after hours and in possession of drugs. Probably not such a sweet 19 year-old anymore.

So, this week (Jan 31, 2014) she waived her extradition from Florida to Kansas and was charged with the 1st Degree Murder of Harold Sasko. Seemingly just a guy who saw an employee upon hard times and was trying to help.

Time will allow us to see if what we are all thinking is actually how this all went down…
