    :what: :what:


    What is going on??. ......... .Is the world getting ready to end??
    People are going absolutely nuts!!!

    I guess Marine Sergeant Brandon Bowman age 27, was not even considering the consequences of his actions ...
    he was just looking forward to the benefits !!!

    And where were the parents of the 12 yr-old girl that rode her bike to meet him in the woods?


    Same ugly song, another verse!

    :(

    It seems like every other day we're hearing about North Carolina spousal homicides and murders commited by military personnel [Deliverance?] ... murders like that seem disproportionately high in NC.

    I'd say FL beats NC, but it's a close 2nd.

    Multiple factors could be causing this:

    1.Military bases: There are 8 military bases in NC, that is alot for a state that size. The military is an attractive career for certain people (both my parents served with some people who could be described as sociopathic (obsessed with firearms/killing, didn't care about others, etc.), one of their friends even became a mercenary in South Africa.) and also most recruits are males between the ages of 17-25, when hormones run high.

    2. Poverty: NC has a high rate of poverty. High poverty/low income areas are well known for being places with high crime (theft, murder, rape, etc) and low LE presence. I've lived in bad neighborhoods in Kileen, TX and Lawton, OK, so I've seen how bad it can get. Also, people tend to get a "us vs. them" mentality about LE.

    3. Drugs/Alcohol: Poverty (economy isn't helping) is a reason alot of people turn to drugs/alcohol. Sometimes people view drugs as a way to escape from their lives, but after awhile (as we all know) it gets out of hand and they start a downhill slide. People then turn to theft/burglery/assault as a way to get money to continue their habit.

    4. Gangs: Bloods,Crips, and other gangs are heavily active in NC. For your reading pleasure:http://www.ncgangcops.org/NCGangAwareness.pdf

    A reminder of what he did:

    http://myfox8.com/2012/05/10/nc-marine-charged-with-sexually-abusing-child-he-met-online/

    He lured a 12 year old child into the woods, and then raped her. And now he's free.

    What is your source of information on what happened, exactly? Why do you think he lured her? Why do you think he's "Free" ... he's on parole as a felony sex offender, his life is forever changed.

    Well, he convinced a 12 year old to go to the woods to meet him (luring), where he had sex with her (rape). Sex with a 12 year old is rape. What do you call it? A May-December romance? SMH

    And since he's freely walking outside prison walls, he's considered "free." Are we to feel bad for the guy? Ummmmm, no!!! He's an adult. He raped a child. Ethical, moral people feel bad for the victim, not the perpetrator. I would recommend checking yourself.

    Detroit is no picnic either. We have the second most death a year, the DOJ just fished 11 years of fixing the LE, and the solve rate is at like 47%.

    From this article, they may have met up before. BB groomed her, maybe, she fantasized he'd marry her one day, who knows, does it really matter? She was a child and he, a fully grown man. If this needs to be explained, all hope is lost.

    If the genders were reversed or it were same sex, it still holds. The grooming technique of an abuser/user is their specialty, it can even turn the mind of an adult, a child has very little resistance if there is something lacking in their life. He's perfected it over time and used it on the most vulnerable.

    As to his life changing forever, BB's choices put him exactly where he belongs, but the grooming strategy will live on, I just hope to god he doesn't continue preying on children. JMO

    Just in case anyone NEEDS the actual North Carolina law.

    "G.S. 14-27.23 Page 1 § 14 -27.23. Statutory rape of a child by an adult.
    (a) A person is guilty of statutory rape of a child by an adult if the person is at least 18
    years of age and engages in vaginal intercourse with a victim who is a child under the age of 13
    years."

    From http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/EnactedLegislation/Statutes/PDF/BySection/Chapter_14/GS_14-27.23.pdf

    And
    "In North Carolina, a person age 16 or older commits the crime of electronic enticement, also called computer solicitation, by using a computer or other electronic device to lure, tempt, advise, or command a child under the age of 16 and at least five years younger than the defendant (or a person whom the defendant believes is a child under the age of 16 and at least five years younger than the defendant) to meet the defendant to commit a sexual act.

    No actual meeting or sexual activity needs to occur. However, electronic enticement is punished more severely if the defendant (or another person for whom the defendant was arranging the meeting) actually appears at the meeting place.

    The child’s consent is not a defense. Electronic enticement can be prosecuted in North Carolina if the communication was sent to or from the state.

    (N.C. Gen. Stat. Ann. § 14-202.3.)"

    This case is resolved. The accused was tried, convicted, and served his time. This thread will remain closed.
