Serial killer Robert Hansen with one of his hunting trophies from a goat. Hansen would lure women to his cabin, brutalise them and then release them into the wilderness, where he would hunt them down like animals. It is thought he murdered between 17-21 people.
Mitchell Johnson is a murderer. He was just 13 years old during the attacks, along with his middle school classmate and cousin, Andrew Golden, then 11 years old. They ambushed teachers and students in the backyard of Westside Middle School in Jonesboro on March 24, 1998, killing five people and wounding ten others.
The rampage occurred during the rash of schoolyard shootings culminating with the Columbine High School massacre.
Johnson was from a broken home. His mother remarried an inmate at the prison where she worked as a guard. Johnson reportedly had a good relationship with his stepfather and siblings. Adults that knew him described him as quiet and respectful. He faithfully attended church and sang in the choir. However, fellow students told a different story: they said he was a braggart and a bully. He spoke of wanting to belong to gangs and smoke marijuana. He also spoke of “having a lot of killing to do" and a bitter grudge against Shannon Wright, a teacher.
It was also said that he had a nearly obsessive fascination with rap music, firearms and violent television shows. In summer of 1997, during a visit to his uncle’s home, Johnson had sexually molested a two year old girl. At the time of the shooting, he was charged with that crime and was facing trial for it.
Johnson reportedly began planning the attack at least a month in advance. He and Andrew Golden stole seven weapons over the course of a month from Johnson’s stepfather’s massive firearm collection.
On the night of March 23, 1998, Johnson and Golden loaded his mother’s van with the weapons, snack foods, stuffed animals and camping supplies, and went to sleep.
The next morning, Johnson stole his mother’s car keys and drove to the school with Golden. Johnson parked the van in the middle of the woods outside of the backyard of the school, planning to return there when the massacre was completed. Johnson sat on a hill in the backyard of the school, while Golden went inside and pulled the fire alarm. Golden ran back and rejoined Johnson at the hill with his own weapon. As the students and teachers filed out of the building, believing it was a routine fire drill, Johnson and Golden opened fire on them.
After they fired for five minutes, four students and a teacher (all female) were killed, and ten more people were wounded. As police arrived on the scene, Johnson and Golden ran into the woods, back to the van. However, they were unable to outrun the officers that were now pursuing them and were both arrested.
Golden and Johnson were held in jail for four months, and the trial started on August 11, 1998, Johnson’s 14th birthday. Both were convicted on five counts of murder, ten counts of attempted murder, and seven counts of illegal firearm possession. However, the maximum sentence that could be given to a minor under Arkansas law was to be held until their 18th birthday. This outraged residents of Jonesboro, and led to changes in laws in Arkansas regarding the prosecution of minors. However, the firearms counts were all federal, so the killers could be held until age 21.
The media went on to report that both youths cried while in custody and showed remorse. They both asked for a Bible and a minister. A guard the Jonesboro jail, however, told reporters this was only an affectation. They reported that the boys were sleeping and eating well and for the most part, seemed unaware of the severity of their crime. They said they only acted that way when their parents were present. Fellow inmates at the facility, where the two inmates were later confined, reported that the two boys “bragged" about their crimes and particularly about the murder of Shannon Wright.
Mitchell Scott Johnson was released on August 11, 2005, on his 21st birthday. He is now allowed to buy and own firearms. However, in interviews with Johnson’s mother, she has said that he plans to leave Jonesboro and become a Baptist minister. Golden was released on May 25, 2007.
On January 1, 2007, Johnson was arrested after a traffic stop in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on misdemeanor charges of carrying a weapon: a loaded 9 mm pistol, and possession of 21.2 grams of marijuana. Though the van that Johnson was riding in was registered to him, the driver was Justin Trammell, 22. Trammell and Johnson had reportedly met at Alexander Youth Services correctional facility in Alexander, Arkansas, where Trammell was incarcerated after he plead guilty to the 1999 crossbow murder of his father, a crime he committed when he was 15 years old. The two are roommates and provided officers with the same address.
Trammell was cited for careless driving and released. Johnson was arrested for possession of marijuana and a loaded weapon and later released on a $1,000 bond.
Gun-toting granny Ava Estelle, 81, was so ticked-off when two thugs raped her 18-year-old granddaughter that she tracked the unsuspecting ex-cons down… And shot off their testicles.
“The old lady spent a week hunting those men down and, when she found them, she took revenge on them in her own special way,” said police investigator Evan Delp.
Then she took a taxi to the nearest police station, laid the gun on the sergeant’s desk and told him as calm as could be: “Those bastards will never rape anybody again, by God.”
Cops say convicted rapist and robber Davis Furth, 33, lost both his penis and his testicles when outraged Ava opened fire with a 9-mm pistol in the hotel room where he and former prison cell mate Stanley Thomas, 29, were holed up.
The wrinkled avenger also blew Thomas’ testicles to kingdom come, but doctors managed to save his mangled penis, police said. “The one guy, Thomas, didn’t lose his manhood, but the doctor I talked to said he won’t be using it the way he used to,” Detective Delp told reporters. “Both men are still in pretty bad shape, but I think they’re just happy to be alive after what they’ve been through.”
The Rambo Granny swung into action August 21 after her granddaughter Debbie was carjacked and raped in broad daylight by two knife-wielding creeps in a section of town bordering on skid row. “When I saw the look on my Debbie’s face that night in the hospital, I decided I was going to go out and get those bastards myself ‘cause I figured the Law would go easy on them,”’ recalled the retired library worker. ” And I wasn’t scared of them, either - because I’ve got me a gun and I’ve been shooting’ all my life. And I wasn’t dumb enough to turn it in when the law changed about owning one.”
So, using a police artist’s sketch of the suspects and Debbie’s description of the sickos, tough-as-nails Ava spent seven days prowling the wino-infested neighbourhood where the crime took place till she spotted the ill-fated rapists entering their flophouse hotel.
“I knew it was them the minute I saw ‘em, but I shot a picture of ‘em anyway and took it back to Debbie and she said sure as hell, it was them,” the oldster recalled…
“So I went back to that hotel and found their room and knocked on the door, and the minute the big one opened the door, I shot ‘em right square between the legs, right where it would really hurt ‘em most, you know. Then I went in and shot the other one as he backed up pleading to me to spare him. Then I went down to the police station and turned myself in.”
Now, baffled lawmen are trying to figure out exactly how to deal with the vigilante granny.. “What she did was wrong, and she broke the law, but it is difficult to throw an 81-year-old woman in prison,” Det. Delp said, “especially when 3 million people in the city want to nominate her for Mayor.”
No mercy for rapists.
"It is difficult to throw an 81-year-old woman in prison,” Det. Delp said, “especially when 3 million people in the city want to nominate her for Mayor.” OH MY GOD
