Amanda Hein of Pennsylvania faces death penalty - accused of giving birth in a sports bar bathroom

Prosecutors in eastern Pennsylvania plan to seek the death penalty in the trial of a woman accused of giving birth in a sports bar bathroom, wrapping the newborn in a plastic bag and hiding him in a toilet tank.
Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli said Wednesday that 27-year-old Amanda Hein of Allentown deserves to be executed because she killed a child.
A cleaning crew found the baby's body in the toilet on Aug. 19 at Starters Pub in Bethlehem, about 30 miles north of Philadelphia. A coroner concluded the boy was born alive.
Her public defender, Michael Corriere, said he expected that prosecutors would seek the death penalty. He didn't comment further. (Copyright ©2013 WPVI-TV/DT. All Rights Reserved.)

My Conversation With Isaac Zamora Washington Spree Killer

He’s compiling a compendium of his victim’s last statements and he remembers every word. He will never forget those words or those voices. Nor will he ever forget the other voices, those that commanded him, on that fateful day and for years preceding, to kill.

Isaac Zamora is responsible for the Washington spree killings of 2008. “I had no malice in my heart. I wanted only to kill the demons and save my family and everyone else,.” said Zamora from the Western State Hospital in Tacoma, Washington. He shot and killed six people on that day, including a lifelong neighbor and a local sheriff’s deputy he had had run-ins with before.

Isaac Zamora has been battling demons in his head for years. They tell him his neighbors hate him, they are out to kill him, that in fact, the world is out to destroy him and those he loves. The voices were clear and the instructions were simple. He must kill the demons on earth to protect his loved ones and the world. He had no choice, the voices told him. If…

Dane Abdools Challenge to The Timely Justice Act

I am beginning to feel the squeeze. Florida is scaring me. They have a blood lust almost on the scale of Texas and California. Not only do they seek to execute but execute quickly and I almost wonder if it is because they are afraid someone will catch a mistake.
They scare me now more so than ever before. I have felt scared for Tiffany Cole on Florida death row. I had a long standing friendship with Tiffany Cole for many years. While this girl is anything but innocent, she doesn’t deserve to die. She was another instance of little girl lost, as Dawn Schiller (the infamous porn star John Holmes’s teen concubine) has said – a throw away teen. Those girls always find themselves mixed up in some terrible situation because no one ever taught them how to stay out of one.
Tiffany and the state of Florida have been in a long, bloody battle of appeals for many years now. Tiffany has a crazy, erratic Aunt who threatened me and ranted about incoherent nonsense on a pretty regular basis. She be…

Mexico May Have a Female Vengeance Killer Making Rounds

Mexico probes possible female vengeance killer - Yahoo News

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) — Mexican prosecutors say they are looking into claims that a woman who killed two bus drivers last week in this northern border city was seeking revenge for alleged sexual abuse of female passengers.

The claims made over the weekend in an email from the self-styled "bus driver hunter" echoed deeply in Ciudad Juarez, which has a grim history of sexual violence against women aboard buses.

A woman wearing a blond wig — or dyed hair — boarded one of the school bus-style vehicles that serve as transport in Ciudad Juarez on Wednesday morning. She approached the driver, took out a pistol, shot him in the head and left the bus. The next day, apparently the same woman did exactly the same thing to another driver on the same route.

Over the weekend, media outlets began receiving emails from the address "Diana the hunter of bus drivers."

"I myself and other women have suffered in sile…
