on: January 21, 2014, 03:13:27 PM 1 General Crime / Specific Cases / Unhappy Death Day for Baby Brandon Duane Baugh, murdered 20 years ago today

January 21, 2014

Greetings OFF2DR Friends,

Unhappy Death Day for Baby Brandon Duane Baugh, murdered 20 years ago today by his baby sitter, Cathy Lynn Henderson.

Justice was taken away from Baby Brandon and his family 5 years ago. His murderer is sitting in jail awaiting a second trial after a travesty of justice due to Junk Science and anti death penalty opponents.

I just wish those people cared as much about the death of a helpless precious 3 month old baby as they do a vicious murderer!

I have not been on here due to requests from Prosecutors that family not talk about the case on linec.

Your update:

Henderson is still in jail in Austin.

Still in hearings.

Her attorneys are going over the mountain of evidence.

No new date has been set for the trial.

No progress in the case.

They will not seek the Death penalty again

They will seek Life, but she can be out in a few more years for all the time she has served.

No Justice will be had.

Justice denied for Baby Brandon

I would like everyone to welcome Chris (Metfan62) back to the site. He has been a silent administrator on this site for many years, he is the person who coined our phrase "Execute the guilty, Honor the victims, Educate the uninformed". If ya'll have any questions or need any help he has made himself available to us again.


PS: I met Chris here on this site many years ago, over the years he has proven to be a good friend, most recently he came to visit Ali and I this past spring when she was at her worst in the hospital. Real people are here on this site, real friendships are developed, strong bonds are made and I just wanted to point that out. I think we all should remind ourselves of that when things get a little heated.   :-*

I cannot describe my feelings right now. I am so happy and proud and teary and....and... and.. all at the same time.

My little boy is a man.
BECAUSE TODAY HE GRADUATED WITH HONOURS!
Best in his class of 28!

He sought a really tough 4 year education in  emergency rescuing, like from fires, severe accidents, catastrophe scenarios. Focus on extreme situations. you know,like  those guys you can see on tv who seems suicidal sometimes jumping from helicopters in the sea trying to save other people.

AAAAAnd, to top it of, he is also a registered nurse, specializing in emergency medicine!!
 My little boy is nowadays a very muscular young man.

An ADD:er like me, but he is very calm, since we always encouraged him from childhood  to release his restlessness during extreme sports and adventures. He is a natural at many of them, and one other plus is that sleazy criminal people & drugs seldom is involved in things like mountain climbing, diving and parachuting etc. We as parents did the right thing, challenging him, supporting him, packing his bags, drove him to all activities, encouraging him, getting him to realize that in many situations you have a BIG advantage over others if you have ADD: Never treating him like his ADD is a handicap. Never allowing him to blame his ADD as excuse in his teens, he may be a little bit different, not stupid.
I believe my son when he says he cant live without the adrenaline kicks he gets from doing these things.( He does not need ritalina. ) at 19 he has the world in his hands.

I think he choose the right education for his personality.

DAMN. I am a PROUD mom today.
HE DID IT!

2 Corinthians 5:21  God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Luke39 One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”

40 But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? 41 We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”

42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.[a]”

43 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

I hope Everyone had a Happy Resurrection Sunday, The innocent man who was executed is Jesus, the Good Shepard who laid his life down for our sins so we can go to Heaven, Who rose from the dead three days later.

John21 “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.”

23 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”

24 Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”

25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

27 “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.”

I had some spare time tonight and just thought I would pop my head in and say hello.  It's been rough in my world the past couple weeks. My daughter, Ali, has been in the hospital in icu for the past 10 days, diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. She is trapped within her own body and it is heart wrenching not being able to do a damn thing to help her except love her with every fiber of my being.  Life sure doesn't give us any breaks, just one blow after another and it never seems to end. But, we endure!!!!

Anyway, just thought I would pop over here tonight and read a bit and say hello....    I do hope you are all doing well, many of you I keep in touch with on facebook and for those of you not on facebook I do miss you! This website is never far from my thoughts even if I am not on here.

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the big house
Not a prisoner was stirring, not even a mouse.
The cells were all locked by the CO’s with care,
In hopes that a death warrant soon would be there.

The convicts were lying on hard iron beds,
While visions of gurneys danced in their heads.
And warden in his despair, and I in my cap,
Hoped to give one more prisoner more than a long winter’s nap.

Have you used this tool in your own home? I doubt it. Get one ASAP for politicians.

Thought you would enjoy this educational moment in American history. Do you know what it is?
Look below, read and learn!



I believe our President, Vice President, all members of the Senate, all members of the Congress should have YOU send this wonderful tool sent to them so it can be used on THEM on the night of 12/24/2012 or first thing in the morning of 12/25/2012.

Tobacco Smoke Enemas (1750s – 1810s) The tobacco enema was used to infuse tobacco smoke into a patients rectum for various medical purposes, primarily the resuscitation of drowning victims. A rectal tube inserted into the anus and was connected to a fumigator and bellows that forced the smoke towards the rectum. The warmth of the smoke was thought to promote respiration, but doubts about the credibility of tobacco enemas led to the popular phrase “blowin'smoke up your ass". It has been recently reintroduced in Washington D.C.,  to be part of the New U. S. Health Care Program.

Please do NOT administer this medical tool on yourself. It will be painfull enough on 1/1/2013 as we get closer to another benefit from Washington D.C.

I don't know if you have heard of Tammy Jarschke, Tanya Jones. or Cathy Graves?   They were all tortured/murdered, by Joseph Michael Nissensohn.  Tammy, my daughter, was 13 at the time, her friend, who was also killed that same day, was 14 years old.

This happened in 1981, in the upper Carmel Valley, Chews Ridge area, of Carmel, California.  Unfortunately, 2 more murders have taken place, by the alleged serial killer, one of which he has served time for, and the other, Cathy Graves, who was killed in such a manner, as Tammy and Tanya, it has  been decided, by a Judge,  to be added to this, making it a triple homicide case, if and when it finally comes to trial....

Joe has been formally charged with his crimes, going on almost 5 years now,  and has stalled, prolonged, and made requests for right to a speedy trial, change of venue.... motion after motion, to delay this case.

My family and I are wishing everyday, that soon this horrific, tragedy, will be over, and justice can be served.....   31 years is such a long, long time, to be patient. 

I have been told, we can look forward to the beginning of the trial process to begin, next year, starting with the jury selection, which should be in May 2013.....that I was told will take possibly, 2 months, as they will have to interview 200-300 possible jurors......oh geez...this just keeps going on and  on. 

Two of our key witnesses,  in the all circumstancial case have died, one was his ex-Wife, who testified against him in the previous murder trial, and his best buddy, who turned states witness. 

Gee, they are both dead now.....That's suspicious, to me....I really feel sometimes, that the monster, will walk away, from his vicious crimes.
There are many other murders he has commented, in 4 other states, who knows how many.  What a tremendous loss of life, by one so mean, and unfeeling.

I have been told, he will never be a free man, but, I am loosing hope.  Please pray, for Tammy, Tanya, and Cathy.  They need all your prayers. 
Thank you,
Penny

on: October 05, 2012, 06:37:48 PM 10 General Death Penalty / U.S. Death Penalty Discussion / My reason FOR the Death Penalty...

From my newest blog, my first politically motivated blog...
http://murrieta.patch.com/blog_posts/picking-up-the-pieces-part-10

Saskia was so looking forward to graduation!  She had been looking into several different colleges, researching programs that sounded interesting to her.  In November, she had decided to focus her search to MSU.  My best friend of 30 years, Kim, has a daughter Lynnette who will be attending MSU, and Saskia decided she definitely wanted to share the college experience – and a dorm room – with Lynnette.

Kim and I each conceived our second child within months of one other.  And while our resemblance is near enough to be considered sisters – we are both small, fine-boned redheads – our daughters resemblance to each other was uncanny.  Physically the girls look like twins, and both were academically brilliant!  Raised together since birth, they truly were ‘identical sisters’ in every sense of the word.  And Saskia was so excited, that after so many years apart, they would be together again during this new stage of their lives!

Only now, Lynnette will be attending college, alone.  Instead of filling out college application forms, and losing ourselves in the excitement of graduation, well –

I have to admit, I really hate where I find myself now!  Left alive, to deal with the mass destruction of the many lives William Gary Simpson left in the wake of his murderous rampage!  Picking up the pieces that can never be put back together…

NOW, instead of preparing to send my beautiful, brilliant daughter off to college, I am preparing myself to deal with her murderer in court…  Instead of helping Saskia choose classes, I am doing research on California laws, the Death Penalty and working on my IMPACT STATEMENT…  Instead of helping Saskia decide what she wants to do, and become in her life – I am now left to contend with how to secure William Gary Simpson from ever touching our lives again!

 

We made it through the prelim Friday, September 14, 2012...

As they put up all the bloody pictures, of the crime scene that is my home...  As they put up the pictures of my daughters bloody, mutilated body and explained which stab wounds were the fatal ones...  "Murrieta police Detective Jeffrey Ullrich, who attended the autopsy of Saskia Burke, said the woman suffered seven stab wounds. Two of the wounds, one to the right side of her face that severed her jugular vein and another to the center of her chest, were not survivable, Ullrich said"

William Gary Simpson stabbed Saskia in her left cheek, the force of the knife breaking her 3 molars on her bottom left jaw, shoving the knife all the way through her face, the blade going out her right cheek...  AFTER PULLING THE KNIFE OUT, he stabbed her again, the force of the knife going into her right cheek, at a downward angle, slicing through her tongue, cutting through the muscle and tendons in her jaw and severing her artery, all 12+ inches of the blade going in all the way to her heart...  After PULLING THE KNIFE OUT AGAIN, he then stabbed her in the chest - severing both her lungs and the ventricle to her heart...

She lived long enough for us to helplessly watch her die!

 

"He went into the home to kill those people," Smith said. "Paul Burke and Connor McCormack are not dead because they had the strength to fight back."  Saskia Burke did not have a chance, Smith said.  "(Simpson) slaughters her," Smith said. "He stabbed her in the face, in the heart, in the back."

I live in a horror, too absolute to breathe...

His intent, to slaughter my entire family - and the heinous way in which he slaughtered my daughter, well - during a break in court, even his defense lawyers approached us and apologized for what happened to Saskia...

“The Riverside County district attorney decided in April to seek the death penalty for William Gary Simpson, who also is charged with two counts of attempted murder in connection with the stabbings of Burke's father, Paul, and her boyfriend, Connor McCormack, then 17. Simpson also faces several special allegations including lying in wait and committing his crimes during a burglary.

The charges against William Gary Simpson Jr., 19, the alleged killer of Saskia Burke, were upheld by Riverside County Superior Court Judge Kelly Hansen following a day-long preliminary hearing.

Simpson is charged with first-degree murder and a special circumstance allegation of killing in the course of a burglary in the Dec. 20, 2011 fatal attack at the Burke home, in Murrieta.

He is also charged with a special circumstance allegation of lying in wait, as well as two counts of attempted murder and multiple great bodily injury and weapons allegations.”

 

AND RIGHT NOW, IT COMES DOWN TO YOUR VOTE !

Revenge and Justice are all we ever hear, from everyone!  It is all that is discussed from the Victims viewpoint, when looking at the Death Penalty.  But I have a different perspective, from within this inadequate justice system we currently bear…  For there is truly no Revenge great enough, no Justice powerful enough to make ANY DIFFERENCE AT ALL…

 

I have only my unique perspective as a MOTHER about this issue.  I look down the road, at the possible future all my children may one day have…  To a day when they have families, and children of their own…  I do not want them to be forced to revisit Saskia’s murder, forced ever again to see the face of William Gary Simpson, the monster who murdered her!  Or worse, that somehow Gary is granted PAROLE, this wolf - in - sheep’s - clothing?  That again in their future, my children would live in mortal fear for their lives?  That William Gary Simpson, if given his freedom, would exact his revenge upon my children and my grandchildren?

Again, let me say – I really hate where I find myself now!  Relying on a dysfunctional system, forcibly held by it, and yet I can find no place for myself here!  With limited options, which are beyond my control.  And yet the FINAL decision?  Will determine the future of everyone I love.  This alone, is a place that can make you loose your mind!  A place of never ending terror!

I ran across a case, when researching the Death Penalty that left me physically ill.  The murderer, on Death Row, coerced someone on the outside to kill the witnesses to his crime.  This person succeeded in murdering two of the witnesses before he was apprehended, with a hit-list in his pocket…  The murderer on Death Row thought that if he killed all the witnesses to his crime, he could get another chance in court to get a lesser sentence.  Hoping one day, to be free.

Crazy to think, the murderer would do this.  And yet, since that morning when William Gary Simpson attacked us, we have continued to live with the fact that this could to happen to us again, at any moment!  We constantly feel as if the next attack is eminent, unable to release ourselves from the overwhelming defensiveness.  To the rest of the world, he is behind bars. But to us?  He will continue to pose a threat to our very lives, each and every day he exists.  Whether real or imagined, but does that really matter?  Because we spend every day in FEAR, regardless. To the rest of the world, he is behind bars, now and forever!  But to us?  Forever may only be the next 20 or so years…  Each day ahead, not only spent in FEAR, but also now accompanied by the terror of knowing we will NEVER give up the fight to keep him locked away!

As I’ve said many times, William Gary Simpson destroyed our lives, in too many ways for anyone who isn’t standing in our shoes to imagine!  The powerlessness of such complete VICTIMIZATION!

 

And through it all, the sweet voice of my Saskia, that only I can hear now.  Her words, of how SHE feels:

“ I could never forgive someone for taking away my rights, my home, my friends and my life!  If things like this happened to me I would be resentful, rather than forgiving.  I just couldn’t forgive the people who were so prejudiced that they made me lose my best friends, and school.  Just the thought of losing them brings tears to my eyes.  I couldn’t forgive the people who took away my parents rights as citizens.  I couldn’t forgive the people who restricted my loved ones from doing the things they love.  I couldn’t forgive those who made me leave my home.  I wouldn’t be able to forgive them for MAKING ME SO SCARED OF THEM, I FROZE WITH FEAR EVERY TIME I HEARD A SOUND!”

Saskia’s thoughts, written just weeks before her murder, for an essay on Anne Frank.  “Thinking that Anne forgave them for all that, is unbelievably saintly.  Even though Anne was just a regular girl like me, she was more remarkable than anyone I have ever heard of!  I wouldn’t be as forgiving and naïve.  I would be resentful, for being so wronged!”  I ran across this open page, sitting in her room amongst her unfinished homework.  HER THOUGHTS, about an unspeakable horror and injustice.  HER WORDS, that speak directly to William Gary Simpson, Saskia’s “NAZI”!

SASKIA’S PASSION – for her life, and her family and her friends!  How Saskia has been so wronged!  And knowing, her expectations of me, to never let her death be in vain!  Knowing, that when I am finally free of this mess to go to her, she will know I did everything I could to take a stand, to affect change, to make a difference FOR HER in this world!  She would expect nothing less from me.  She would accept no other excuse from me for staying here, for forsaking her wishes for me to join her in death NOW!

 

And so, I now take a firm stance in this matter,

FOR THE DEATH PENALTY!   PLEASE Vote NO on Proposition 34!

In this election year, the DEATH PENALTY will be on the ballot.  Our CA Governor, Jerry Brown, opposes the Death Penalty.  I need your help to make Saskia the face for all victims, and give Saskia’s story, to the people of California –  AND THIS NATION, as to why the Death Penalty is so important to the Victims of Violent Crime.  Join me in putting political views, religious beliefs, and personal feelings aside – to finally change our laws!  Throughout the history of our country, change only came after someone had reason enough to stand before us and lead the way!  I stand before you now – and Saskia is my reason!

I would have never thought, I would find myself to be the mother of a murdered child, the victim of a heinous, violent crime.  We were good, moral parents, who raised our children in a very loving home. Our murderer, coveted that love we had…  Our murderer, was a friend of our son's - a friend to our family, for over 10 years... Ten years of birthday parties, Christmas vacations, summer sleepovers and pool parties.  Ten years of classes with our son, fieldtrips, lunches and recess...  Ten years, of paintball games and 4th of July fireworks, of hanging out and playing Rock Band in our living room...  Our murderer was raised by his mother in a privileged home, attended the same good schools as our children, and he received good grades.  I could have never thought he would plan for almost 1 year, to come into our home 4 days before Christmas (after hiding in an empty nearby house waiting for all our children to come home), to murder us all!  He slashed and stabbed my daughter to death, when she went downstairs for a bottle of water at 4am...  Our entire house awoke to her screams!  My husband and another child were stabbed…  I fought with him to take the murder weapon…  My 13-year-old daughter stood on the steps, hearing and watching all of this!

I will NEVER FORGET LOOKING INTO HIS SMILING FACE, THE HORROR OF REALIZING WHO HE WAS!!!

I know just how flawed our system is – as I am forced to live within it now!  We now find ourselves lost in this "Justice System", a system that is fraught too many 'injustices' for victims and their families.  Isn't it time, as a nation, we make the needed changes within this defunct system, to ensure the safety of everyone?  If not for yourself, then for the safety of your children!   Our current system is designed “FOR” the murderers, not the victims.  Our murderer was caught, and faces the death penalty.  A sentence he will never really receive, when it is given to him.  Besides the fact that we witnessed him do this, there is overwhelming DNA evidence, and yet - it will be years before we can get to a trial, as he claims he is innocent of all charges...  An agonizing process for all victims to endure, a process that keeps them frozen in the moment of murder until the trial is over!  And when our murderer is sentenced?  Our terror does not end, it may never end!  The senseless money wasted, to move through the process of an ineffectual trial, to give forth a sentence that will never be carried out?

I raised Saskia to believe – ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!  Let that person be Saskia!  Start, by voting

NO on Proposition 34 !

 

I am Catherine Burke –

 Mother of a Murdered Child – AND – Victim of a Violent Crime !

In this election year what becomes MOST important is fixing our broken Justice System to actually uphold the VERDICT.  Life in Prison WITHOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF PAROLE should always and forever remain just that.  And the Death Penalty should be conducted as swiftly as the

CHOICE THE MURDERER MADE IN KILLING…

 

For you see, I am left to live a life now, which is truly TOO INHUMANE to be forced to live.  And I hope you can all open your eyes, to see what it is to be a VICTIM, and extend to VICTIMS such as us the same understanding, compassion, and HUMANITY that is all too often offered more to the MURDERERS!

Vote NO on Proposition 34 - If you can't do it for yourself, do it for your children...

My 14 year old daughter, Kessa, is waiting...  To stand behind the glass, and watch as they execute William Gary Simpson.  She can't feel SAFE, until he is DEAD.  She speaks of this, every single day!  Because she has nightmares of what Simpson did, every single night.  It is her way of dealing with the trauma of witnessing Simpson murder her sister!  It is this hope to see him die, that keeps her going forward, for now... 

And for ME?  I saw everything that demon, William Gary Simpson, did on December 20, 2011…  I now know it is true – that MONSTERS DO EXIST!

And I am living proof, THAT NO ONE IS SAFE!

 

on: September 27, 2012, 05:23:05 PM 11 General Crime / Crime Debate and Discussion / I scored a Victory today!

 :( I posted my comments today, on an ANTI- DEATH PENALTY article in the Orange County Register »

"Death penalty: Victims often want an eye for an eye 3 hrs ago
ANAHEIM HILLS - Don't tell Steve Herr a death sentence takes too long to carry out, costs too much or does not offer some closure.His son, Samuel Herr, 26, an Afghanistan war veteran, was shot, his body … More »"

This is the article they pulled!  :P It was there. I was the first to comment. And this is my comment:


There is a simple truth for family's of victims: NOTHING, can repair the damage done to their lives. For those most heinous and violent offenders? Another simple truth: NOTHING can be done for them, either. These monsters chose to leave behind their HUMANITY ! No matter what sentence is given, the family's of VICTIMS will never feel anything but EMPTY ! To say eye for an eye? Our MURDERER, William Gary Simpson, is facing the Death Penalty for his attack upon our family. Even if it is given to him, he will be given a simple drug... Yet, he brutally murdered our 18 year-old daughter here in our home. And in his mass-murderous rampage, went on to try to kill us, as he had come to do... And all this, in front of my 13 year old child! No, it is not an eye for an eye. It simply keeps the rest of YOU SAFE - from someone who chose to become INHUMAN!

Always, the same one-sided rhetoric about the suffering of MURDERER'S... With no mention, to their VICTIMS! VICTIMS have been tortured (mentally, physically and emotionally) and for victims such as ME? I speak for ALL victims when I say we will remain TORTURED until DEATH!
I am Catherine Burke - MOTHER OF A MURDERED CHILD, VICTIM OF A HEINOUS AND VIOLENT CRIME... And as long as there are articles printed like this, I will continue to post my story, to SCREAM OUT LOUD right back at them!


I would have never thought, I would find myself to be the mother of a murdered child, the victim of a heinous, violent crime. We were good, moral parents, who raised our children in a very loving home. Our murderer, coveted the love we had… Our murderer, was a friend of our son's - a friend to our family, for over 10 years...

I could have never thought he would plan for almost 1 year, to come into our home 4 days before Christmas (after hiding in a foreclosed home waiting for all our children to come home), to murder us all! He slashed and stabbed my daughter to death, when she went downstairs for a bottle of water at 4am... Our entire house awoke to her screams! My husband and another child were stabbed… I fought with him to take the murder weapon… My 13 year old daughter stood on the steps, hearing and watching all of this!
I will NEVER FORGET LOOKING INTO HIS SMILING FACE, THE HORROR OF REALIZING WHO HE WAS!!!

I will forever, be tortured by the sound of her screams, by her murder! Our life – WHO WE WERE? It was all taken from us on that morning! This man had been a friend of our son, a friend to our family, for over 10 years! And his reason, to kill? Was simply because we were such good, kind and loving people! He coveted what he saw in us, and decided that if he could not have this from his own family, no one should! He came to kill us all, and even though he only murdered Saskia, he did - murder ALL of us! We are all tortured souls now, a torture that truly is too "INHUMANE" to be forced to live with. I hope people can open their eyes, to see what it is to be a VICTIM, and extend to VICTIMS the same understanding, compassion, and HUMANITY offered to MURDERERS!


Please let me introduce you to Saskia Savana Burke! 11-6-93 to 12-20-11
The VICTIM OF A VIOLENT CRIME!
" I value my happiness. I value how happy and content I am with my life. I value the memories that have made my life as happy as it is. I value my friends and family who make me happy and share my happiness with me. I value all the things that make me happy, like fun and relationships, but what I value most is the fact that I am happy because there are so many people who are not that lucky. I value my happiness the most because the friends and items that you have may change, and circumstances may change, but the fact that
I AM HAPPY WITH WHAT I HAVE AND WHO I AM -
IS THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT THAT I COULD EVER BE GIVEN!”

Saskia was academically brilliant, scoring the perfect 600 on the state testing twice, yet humbled by how easy this was for her, and how difficult school was for others! Saskia went out into the world, with love and a special insight for all things and changed the world in the most positive ways! Saskia was open and caring and giving to everyone, always! She was truly the most angelic creature any of us will ever encounter here in this life. How many people can you say are truly genuine? Saskia was. And she infected each one of us with her passion for life, her kind and loving nature, her ‘real’ and ‘true’ happiness, the simple sound of her oh-so-contagious laughter!

“The Riverside County district attorney decided in April to seek the death penalty for William Gary Simpson, who also is charged with two counts of attempted murder in connection with the stabbings of Burke's father, Paul, and her boyfriend, Connor McCormack, then 17. Simpson also faces several special allegations including lying in wait and committing his crimes during a burglary.
The charges against William Gary Simpson Jr., 19, the alleged killer of Saskia Burke, were upheld by Riverside County Superior Court Judge Kelly Hansen following a day-long preliminary hearing.
Simpson is charged with first-degree murder and a special circumstance allegation of killing in the course of a burglary in the Dec. 20, 2011 fatal attack at the Burke home, in Murrieta.
He is also charged with a special circumstance allegation of lying in wait, as well as two counts of attempted murder and multiple great bodily injury and weapons allegations.”

I stand with ALL VICTIMS in support of the Death Penalty. I stand beside you, as the Parent of a MURDERED CHILD - AND - the Victim of a VIOLENT CRIME. I am sorry, that it is our eyes that have been opened to the fact that monsters do exist! And from this mothers heart, I am so truly sorry our children have been taken in such heinous ways! Together we will find the strength, take a stand - and say NO to proposition 34!

And then I proceeded to post this same type of comment on 11 other articles...  With a little help from Karen Weinholdt Bearman!  I am honing my word skills, and using them as weapons!  ;)

Hello Everyone,

I was just admitted to this forum and so glad I can express my opinion with the same like minded people.
I live in San Jose, CA and have written several letters to the editor of the San Jose Mercury News which all were not published.
Yesterday I saw their list of what they support that included the measure that will be on California’s  November ballot.  I wasn’t surprised to see that they the support the bill to eliminate the Death Penalty.

My letter to the editor was:

One important point is what the opponents of the death penalty DON’T SAY, the extreme cost of the appeal process that goes on for decades.  Compare California’s cost per inmate to Texas’s.  This malfeasance of justice needs to be fixed. This State saves millions of dollars per year with plea bargains  on capital cases that will not go to trial because of the death penalty threat. An effective tool to receive confessions of the guilty. Never before in history with the science of DNA that it is more certain that an innocent person does not receive the death penalty and the guilty do. Don't throw out the car because it needs a tune up. Yes, there needs to be an appeal process, but end the costly, unreasonable, never ending appeal process that serves as a miscarriage of justice.
Back in the 80’s I was a correctional officer at San Quentin where all of the death sentences are performed in California. I had the opportunity to actually work on the row for a few weeks.

I’ll contribute some of my observations in my following post.
Thanks for having me.

on: August 27, 2012, 03:40:42 PM 14 Forum Rules and Information / Introductions / I am Saskia's mother, Cat Burke-POMC/VOVC!

My name is Catherine Burke.  I am a Victim Of Violent Crime.  I am also the mother of a Murdered Child.  My 18-year-old daughter, Saskia Savana Burke, was brutally stabbed to death here in our home December 20, 2011...  Our murderer has been arrested, and as of today we are still awaiting the prelim...  Charged with murder, 2 counts attempted murder, two counts of special circumstances, he is eligible for the death penalty.

I would have never thought, I would find myself to be the mother of a murdered child, the victim of a heinous, violent crime.  We were good, moral parents, who raised our children in a very loving home.  Our murderer, William Gary Simpson, was a friend of our son's - a friend to our family, for over 10 years...  Ten years of birthday parties, Christmas vacations, summer sleepovers and pool parties.  Ten years of classes with our son, fieldtrips, lunches and recess...  Ten years, of paintball games and 4th of July fireworks, of hanging out and playing Rock Band in our living room...  Our murderer was raised in a privileged home, attended the same good schools as our children, and he received good grades.  I could have never thought he would plan for almost 1 year, to come into our home 4 days before Christmas, to murder us all! 

I was an overly artistic woman, with the rare gift to not only "see" the colors, but to "hear" the music of the colors...  I saw LIFE as something you create, and mold, and shape…  I knew one thing, with absolute certainty.  I wanted to be a mother!  I wanted to be surrounded with children…  They are incredible creatures, little children.  So filled with purity and passion, and awed by everything!  Untouched by the prejudices and influences of the adult world, they truly live in the realm of imagination…  And in having my own children, working with so many children – I was afforded to live with them in this realm for a very long time…

We raised our children in a warm, loving, family oriented home.  I stayed home to raise my children.  I spent every day of Saskia's entire life with her!  We have always had many children choose to spend time at our house, with our family.  They liked to enjoy the structure of a family unit, a place where “mom” was always present, always involved. A home where homework was finished after school each day.  A home where dinner was cooked, and the family ate together, EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!  These children thrived on being listened to and included in an unbiased and unprejudiced environment.  And they have always felt loved and accepted, here in our home.  In a world where it is hard to find all of these things, our home was ‘sanctuary’ for children.  My strong belief that it takes a community to raise the kids, held each child to my own high moral standards.  This too, helped each child to become a better person, which in turn made the environment for my children better too!  Because you see – I once believed it was possible, to make the world a better place, one child at a time.  And when I look back, at all the children I’ve made a difference to?  I can think of nothing better a person could ever hope to do with her life!  I have succeeded in making a positive difference in this world!  And the personal reward I receive – is the overwhelming love and respect from everyone in my life!

December 20, 2011

William Gary Simpson came into our home that morning, with the intention of killing my husband and three children, myself, and the 7 other children staying with us over Christmas break.  Why?  Because - he could not stand for us to have so much love in our home!  He could not tolerate my children, and all the other children, being loved so unconditionally, the way he wanted his parents to love him.  HE COVETED WHAT WE HAD… 

When the DA asked me “why” he did not kill his own family, but targeted ours – I answered with my insightful truth.  In the heart of every child, they have ‘hope’ that one day their parents ‘will’ love them unconditionally.  Their parents will finally ‘see’ and ‘hear’ them.  If Simpson had killed his own parents, he would never get those things that he wants so much!  So he chose, instead, to take it from all of us…

And so, he planned for almost one year...  He 'practiced', not only by taking self-defense, sword fighting and martial arts classes at college - but by killing!  And then he came with an entire duffle bag filled with knives, watching our home for over 2 weeks while hiding out in a nearby foreclosed home, waiting for the optimum moment - to annihilate us all!

That Monday, December 19, was my son Ian's last day at college until after Christmas break.  All the children had been playing rock band in the living room that day.  Ian called at 6pm, to let us know he missed the bus home from college.  His girlfriend had taken him down and bought him a new cell phone for Christmas, and the activation had taken longer than they thought.  His girlfriends’ mother said it was ok for him to stay the night, and he was checking with us that it was ok too.

When Mr. Simpson entered our home (we are not sure if it was the afternoon of Dec. 19, or the early hours of Dec. 20), he went into Ian's room first - the only bedroom downstairs.  He thought, from the rumpled covers, Ian was in bed sleeping.  He stabbed into them, only to discover Ian was not there.  So, he placed a knife on the bed, and threw the covers back over it.  My daughter Saskia went downstairs at 4am for a bottle of water.  Simpson attacked her with a 15 inch knife, slashing and stabbing into her 9 times before inflicting the fatal wound (stabbing the knife down through her neck to the hilt, sending all 15 inches of blade down through her chest ripping through her heart).  "AAHHHH!"  "AAAAHHHHH!”  Our entire house awoke to the sound of her screams!  As I ran from my bedroom and encountered my 13-year-old daughter on the upstairs landing, I ordered her to stay there – ‘DON’T GO DOWNSTAIRS!’  "AAAAAHHHHHH!!!"  We ran downstairs, as Saskia continued to scream in pain and terror, "Daddyeeeeee!" "AAAAAAHHHHHHHHhhhh!", to discover Saskia already dead on the floor.  And Simpson, standing over her with that knife, dripping with her blood.  My husband and another child tackled Simpson.  I took away the murder weapon.  I was going to grab the phone, and call for help, but the phone was missing.  I ran out front, and screamed for help!  All I could think of was getting help for my daughter!  I threw down the murder weapon, and saw a man across the street getting into his truck.  I screamed for him to call the police, we need an ambulance, MY DAUGHTER MAY BE DEAD - I NEED HELP!  And I ran back inside -

I did not know, Simpson had brought more weapons.  I came back in to discover he had stabbed my husband (3 times in the back, puncturing his lung), and to my horror, was standing over this child who was begging for his life, and brought the knife down, severing the artery in his neck!  I ran to stop him, but could not reach him in time...  As he brought the blade down again severing the artery, and the blood shot out of his boy’s neck, and covered everything! I grabbed the blade as he brought it up the third time, and my husband tackled Simpson.  I realized too much in that moment...  I realized my Saskia was dead!  I realized this boy and my husband were both going to die, as both were bleeding out...  I realized, I was going to die.  I also realized my 13 year old daughter was standing on the steps, and I HAD TO GET HER OUT OF THE HOUSE!  So I turned, and yelled at her to run - and at the same moment, the woman from next door showed up in my doorway.  I screamed for her to take my child to her house, lock the doors, and call for help!  I threw the knife out front behind them as they ran!

I ran back to the boy, who could no longer sit up from loss of blood.  I gently laid him down, grabbed the curtain that was lying on the floor, and pushed it under his skin, to stop the spurting blood.  I waded the material up and placed his hand on it, I told him to hold it as tightly as he could.  As I did  this, I could see beyond him sitting in the hallway - an entire duffle bag filled with knives!  But beside me, my husband was losing his strength, as his lung had been punctured, and I didn't have the precious seconds needed to reach the bag and return.  So I grabbed the only thing within my reach, I believe it to be the curtain rod, and began beating Simpson with it.  As I raised that rod over my head and brought it down into his smiling face, I thought of knocking him out!  That image of Simpson’s murderous smiling face is burned into my mind!  But as I raised it the second time, I looked into his smiling face and I WANTED TO KILL WILLIAM GARY SIMPSON RIGHT THERE IN MY LIVINGROOM FOR WHAT HE HAD DONE TO SASKIA!  And if my husband had not lost his grip on Simpson, because he was bleeding so profusely, I WOULD HAVE!  But my husband collapsed, and Simpson jumped up.  Three neighbors came through my front door in that same instant!  Simpson leaped past me, grabbed the duffle bag and ran out the back door.  The neighbors ran in, and followed.  Two stopped in their tracks at the site all the blood!  One ran through it, but Simpson had already jumped the fence.  So he turned, and they all ran back out the front door in pursuit.

Simpson was caught after a 4-day manhunt.  When he escaped our house, he went directly to a mental institution, and checked himself in.  NOT because he was crazy, but because this too, had been part of his PLAN!  He never really thought he would ever need to implement this part of the plan, because he truly thought he would succeed in killing us all!  With no witnesses left alive, no one would ever figure out who did it!  Simpson's mother picked him up from the institution after two days, and hid him in her home for two more, until her son-in-law called the police to turn him in.

I share this with you here, in this personal place to speak out loud, and tell you the things of such horror and terror! 

Please let me introduce you to Saskia Savana Burke!
11-6-93 to 12-20-11  Saskia was academically brilliant, scoring the perfect 600 on the state testing twice, yet humbled by how easy this was for her, and how difficult school was for others!  Saskia went out into the world, with love and a special insight for all things, and continued her mothers work to change the world in positive ways!  Saskia added her own special touch to the details of everyone’s life, every person she ever encountered.  She was open and caring and giving to everyone, always!  She was truly the most angelic creature any of us will ever encounter here in this life.  How many people can you say are truly genuine?  Saskia was.  And she infected each one of us with her passion for life, her kind and loving nature, her ‘real’ and ‘true’ happiness, the simple sound of her oh-so-contagious laughter!

Saskia was only 18 years-1 month-14 days-28 minutes old, in the middle of her Senior Year of High School!

I will spend every moment I continue to live hearing Saskia’s screams!  And feeling guilty, for not taking my leave of this life to be with her. I am forever torn between two plains of reality – life, and death!  Because I KNOW THE ANSWER, to the question everyone asks… “What would Saskia want me to do now?”  I had this conversation with her once.  She said to me “momma, if I were to die, I would want you there with me!  Don’t wait a single second!  Hurry, because I would need you to be there with me!  I couldn’t stand to be alone!” Every second spent living, is spent forsaking my Saskia!  I do not simply wish for death, I physically ache for it with every breath!

Let Saskia’s words speak loudly for us all!  Because this, the most precious gift in life, is what William Gary Simpson has taken, and can never be returned to us:
 
" I value my happiness. I value how happy and content I am with my life. I value the memories that have made my life as happy as it is. I value my friends and family who make me happy and share my happiness with me. I value all the things that make me happy, like fun and relationships, but what I value most is the fact that I am happy because there are so many people who are not that lucky. I value my happiness the most because the friends and items that you have may change, and circumstances may change, but the fact that
I AM HAPPY WITH WHAT I HAVE
AND WHO I AM -

IS THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT
THAT I COULD EVER BE GIVEN!”
 
Having Saskia in our lives, and being a "complete" family was OUR MOST PRECIOUS GIFT, and truly made us happy!  And inside this box Simpson has placed us in – of horror and terror, misery and pain, hopelessness and injustice, there simply "is" no happiness!


SASKIA’S PASSION – for her life, and her family and her friends!  How Saskia has been so wronged!  And knowing, her expectations of me, to never let her death be in vain!  Knowing, that when I am finally free of this mess to go to her, she will know I did everything I could to take a stand, on all of the issues surrounding her murder, and to affect change - to make a difference FOR HER in this world!  She would expect nothing less from me than to fight to protect everyone she has ever loved.  She would accept no other excuse from me for staying here, for forsaking her wishes for me to join her NOW!  I have a different perspective, from within this inadequate justice system we currently bear…  For there is truly no Revenge great enough, no Justice powerful enough to make ANY DIFFERNCE AT ALL…  None of it will bring Saskia back!  I raised Saskia to believe – ONE PERSON CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!  Let that person now be Saskia!
Let her voice now scream loudly for -
                                                        PROTECTION !!!

William Gary Simpson took our CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness when he Murdered Saskia!   He has destroyed our lives, in too many ways for anyone who isn’t standing in our shoes to imagine!  The powerlessness of such complete VICTIMIZATION! Relying now on a dysfunctional Justice system, forcibly held by it with NO RIGHTS!  With limited options, which are beyond our control.  And yet the FINAL decision?  WILL DETERMINE THE FUTURE OF EVERYONE I LOVE!  Simpson was caught, and faces the death penalty.  A sentence he will never really receive, when it is given to him...  Each moment he exists, he is a continued threat to our family.  Even from behind bars, he still communicates with the “outside”.  He called our house, from jail!  I have only my unique perspective as a MOTHER.  I look down the road, at the possible future all my children may one day have…  To a day when they have families, and children of their own…  Knowing they will live EVERY MOMENT, WAITING FOR THE NEXT ATTACK IF HE LIVES!  Knowing the lives of my children and my grandchildren, are at stake!  Please, do not take this last vestige of safety from my CHILDRENS LIVES!  WE, THE VICTIMS, DESERVE A SWIFT AND AFFECTIVE DEATH PENALTY!

And so, I now take a firm stance in this matter, FOR THE DEATH PENALTY!  In this election year, the DEATH PENALTY will be on the ballot.  Our CA Governor, Jerry Brown, opposes the Death Penalty.  I need your help to make Saskia the face for all victims, and give Saskia’s story, to the people of California –  AND THIS NATION, as to why the Death Penalty is so important to the Victims of Violent Crime like us.  Join me in putting political views, religious beliefs, and personal feelings aside – to finally change our laws!  Throughout the history of our country, change only came after someone had reason enough to stand before us and lead the way!  I stand before you now – and Saskia is my reason!  Let Saskia's words ring loud and true, throughout this country of ours, for the PROTECTION OF ALL SHE LOVED IN THIS LIFE!

Let the sweet voice of my Saskia, that only I can hear now, speak her words, of how SHE feels:
“ I could never forgive someone for taking away my rights, my home, my friends and my life!  If things like this happened to me I would be resentful, rather than forgiving.  I just couldn’t forgive the people who were so prejudiced that they made me lose my best friends, and school.  Just the thought of losing them brings tears to my eyes.  I couldn’t forgive the people who took away my parents rights as citizens.  I couldn’t forgive the people who restricted my loved ones from doing the things they love.  I couldn’t forgive those who made me leave my home.  I wouldn’t be able to forgive them for MAKING ME SO SCARED OF THEM, I FROZE WITH FEAR EVERY TIME I HEARD A SOUND!”

Saskia’s thoughts, written just weeks before her murder, for an essay on Anne Frank.  “Thinking that Anne forgave the Nazi's for all that, is unbelievably saintly.  Even though Anne was just a regular girl like me, she was more remarkable than anyone I have ever heard of!  I wouldn’t be as forgiving and naïve.  I would be resentful, for being so wronged!”  I ran across this open page, sitting in her room amongst her unfinished homework.  SASKIA'S THOUGHTS, about an unspeakable horror and injustice that came true for her.  HER WORDS, that speak directly to William Gary Simpson, Saskia’s “NAZI”!

She cannot stand before anyone, ever again.  She cannot protect the people who she loved, who made her happy every day of her life!  But I can stand before this Nation, and speak Saskia's words out loud for her!  I can fight, to change the laws we currently have, for the protection of everyone she loved!

This fight includes changing the laws that govern our Police Department.  It also includes the Press - to be held to laws which hold them to the truth, and hold them accountable for the outright "LIES" they made up after her murder, to sensationalize her death!

THE REST OF OUR STORY...
2010
Upon HS graduation, Simpson and Richard Frasier asked if they could live with us, so they could attend Riverside Community College with our son Ian.  We agreed to rent them room and board, and allowed them to stay with us.  The agreement included each boy must find a job, to pay rent.

Both boys moved in with us in June, 2010.  They spent the summer looking for work, but due to the economy, could not get jobs.  November, 2010, Simpson was finally offered a job.  My son Ian brought this to my attention, when, Simpson turned down the job offered at a local video game store.  Upon learning Simpson had turned it down, Ian went to the manager and asked if he could have this job, but someone else had been hired.

That evening, I asked Simpson "why" he had turned down the job.  After all, it was our agreement.  He owed us 6 months rent, for which he had never paid not a penny.  Simpson stood there, looking confused, and said "well, I'm in school now.  I need to focus on school.  I'm not going to be the only one working."  I explained to him that each boy, was responsible for himself.  Each boy, HAD to get a job.  Still looking confused at this thought, he rolled his eyes at me, and walked away.

Later that evening, Simpson took his guitar and a set of strings to Ian, and asked him to restring it.  Ian did.  The next morning, Ian and Simpson got up and caught the bus for college.  After dropping my two daughters at school, I went to the grocery store.  Upon checking out, I discovered my entire months grocery money was missing from my purse...  That evening, Ian returned alone from college.  Simpson had not been on the bus.  Ian had not seen him at school.  After dinner, Ian discovered his guitar case to be open, under his bed.  Upon sliding it out, he could see the empty package his new expensive guitar strings had been in, a present from mom and dad for his birthday...  The strings, Simpson had asked Ian to put on his guitar - had been Ian's strings!

By 10pm, we were frantic with worry...  We had repeatedly called Simpson's cell phone, but it went straight to voicemail.  At 11pm, I called the police to report him missing...  He had left that morning with his backpack and guitar, as usual, but not returned home.  He had said nothing to us.  I knew it was too early for the police to do anything, but I could not reach Simpson's mother, and had no phone number for his father.  We knew he had stolen from Ian.  We knew he had taken the money from my purse.  And yet, we were concerned for his safety.

The next morning, I called a friend who lived by Simpson's mother.  I asked if she would stop by the house, to let his mother know her son was missing.  A few hours later, she called to say Simpson's mother knew where he was.  Simpson had decided to go visit his father, as it was the week of Thanksgiving.

My son Ian, was angered by ALL of this.  Not only had his friend taken advantage of his family by living off us and not paying rent, but also he had stolen his guitar strings, and stolen our entire months grocery money!  We were now forced to drag our possessions out front and have a garage sale, so we could get enough money to supply groceries for our household of 6 to eat...  Ian and Richard went through the house that day, putting all of Simpson's possessions in bags, and setting them out front...  Upon opening the bottom drawer, that Simpson was using, we discovered quite the knife collection.  I chose to throw them in the trash, and not return them.  After all, Simpson was staying with his father, whom he did not have the best relationship with.  His father had remarried, and he now had two small children in his house.  I did not think it safe, to return these knives to Simpson...

When everything was packed up outside, Ian called Simpson's cell phone and left the message for him that their friendship was over, and he could come to get his things from out front at any time.  When Simpson's father, who is a police officer, brought him to get his things, I confronted him about his son's behavior.  Not paying the debts, he was responsible for.  Lying to us, stealing from us...  His father LAUGHED, and said it was not his problem - I should take it up with his mother!

November 30, 2010
A note was left on our front door, by Simpson.  A note to Ian, telling him Happy Birthday.

Many children came to our home during Thanksgiving break.  This particular afternoon of the 30th, the children were sitting in the living room, discussing Simpson's behavior after reading this bizarre note.  Simpson was egotistical, and arrogant.  The type of child who thought he knew everything, and often made up lies about things which he knew nothing of to sound self-important.  He was entirely selfish, and had a strong sense of superiority over others. During this discussion, I overheard Richard talking about an incident where they had been playing a video game.  As there are only two controllers, and there were 4 people playing, they all took turns.  Except Simpson did not want to share, nor give up his turn.  When Simpson finally took a bathroom break, Richard began playing - taking his long awaited turn.  Simpson returned and became enraged, pulled out his pocketknife and held it to Richard's throat!

None of the children had taken this threat seriously at the time.  Not serious enough, to even mention it to Mom and Dad at the time.  For they all saw Simpson as "wimpy", with his rather "effeminate nature"...  None of the children saw him as the least bit threatening or dangerous.  But upon hearing this statement, I became alarmed.  So much so, I called the police, to report it.
"A MINOR CHILD HELD A KNIFE, TO THE THROAT OF ANOTHER MINOR CHILD IN MY HOME"!
The officer came, and I gave him all the details.  After all, both children were minors.  And while I could not do anything further for this boy, I now felt the police SHOULD.  I could see a child who was morally going down a misguided path.  And his parents were doing nothing about his behavior.  And the two things that bothered me the most - Holding a knife, to another child’s throat - and stealing from his best friend of over 10 years, spoke volumes to me that something was wrong with Simpson.  The officer, however, took my report and decided to do nothing.  He saw no immediate threat, as Simpson was not presently at our home.  I argued, for 15 minutes, the morality of this issue.  After all, HE HAD BEEN AT OUR HOME ONLY THIS MORNING!  How it was the responsibility, when his parents refused to do their job, of society itself to set this young man straight on his moral path.  How he was headed down such a morally wrong path, and he needed intervention...  But my words fell on the deaf ears of this officer.  He still chose to do nothing.  And offered to me "if Simpson returns, give us a call..."!

When we called over 1 year later, in December 2011, it was to inform the police Simpson had returned - to murder us all, and had slaughtered our daughter!

THE PRESS
That morning, the press arrived as quickly as the police.  I was being held captive, in the garage of the house next door - having been told by the police officer keeping me captive that Saskia was in fact alive, and the paramedics were working on her - only to be told the truth hours later, that she had in fact died immediately, and they only lied to keep me there...  All that time, asking the police to walk 6 houses down my street, and inquire from the neighbor boy who had been at my house last night - to call my son!  When Ian's new cell phone was activated the night before, he had called this boy - and he would have this new number on the call log.  All that time, I did not know if my son was alive, or if Simpson had started his murderous rampage in Riverside!  I did not know if my son, his girlfriend and her mother may be stabbed to death too, or worse, dying because no one was getting to them in time!  And for two hours, the police did nothing.  When they finally admitted Saskia was dead, I could take it not longer!  I ran from that house, and as an officer tried to grab me I screamed, capturing the attention of the media parked in the street!  I challenged this officer to stop me, and he realized the media was watching, and had no choice but to let me go!  I walked down the street, the police hurrying to get in front of me, to get the neighbors house before I did...  This neighbor boy had Ian's girlfriend’s number, and we dialed her instead.  I took the phone when she answered, and asked it they were ok.  When she said yes, I asked her to go somewhere, where Ian could not hear our conversation.  I had to tell her what had happened, explain to her not to let Ian or her mother leave, but to lock the doors and windows and wait for the police to arrive, because Simpson had escaped, and may be on his way there!  This neighbor boy said he would drive there with the police, to tell Ian himself what had happened to his beloved sister, to his family!  We were all afraid, of how Ian would react, and what he might do!  I asked this girlfriend not to say anything to Ian, until the boy and the police arrived...

Meanwhile, as I was held hostage next door...  My husband was put into the back of an ambulance, where paramedics were working to stabilize him for transport to the hospital.  An officer was questioning my husband, about what happened.  With one collapsed lung, my husband barely had the ability to utter Simpson’s name.  This officer, kept asking my husband 'why our daughters boyfriend had returned to the house to kill her - had they argued?  Was he jealous of her new boyfriend?'  My husband could not find the breath to explain the situation, and kept shaking his head 'NO'!  The media, standing behind this officer and listening to his line of questioning, then wrote the following article:

MURRIETA: Triple stabbing leaves 1 dead, 2 wounded

http://www.pe.com/local-news/riverside-county/murrieta/murrieta-headlines-index/20111220-murrieta-triple-stabbing-leaves-1-dead-2-wounded.ece

In this article, it is claimed they spoke with my mother in law about Simpson, and she told them Simpson was 'kicked out after Paul (my husband) thought Simpson was "googley eyed and gaga" over Saskia'.  The TRUTH?  Gary is gay, and never, ever, had any interest in Ian's little sister, what so ever.  The truth - THAT SIMPSON CAME TO KILL US ALL was never mentioned!  The press simply ran with this twist that was implied by the questioning officer, and OUTRIGHT LIED, to the world! 

And this lie, that this black child had been kicked out of our home by the white parents after his interest in our white daughter, got the attention of both the WHITE RACIST GROUPS, AND - THE BLACK HATRED GROUPS.  Both groups grabbed this story because of this twist, and to our horror, this is what has happened:

Controversial California Black Foot Soldier Augustus Dubois is reportedly calling the stabbing death of an eighteen year old reparations offender from a family of generational race criminals yet another act of the Divine Universal Race Karma Caucasus mountain descendants face for their unrestituted for skin color based terrorism against the earth's people of color. The teen, Saskia Burke, was allegedly stabbed multiple times by William Gary Simpson Jr. - an African American foster child her family had taken in but reportedly kicked out of their home over a year ago.  "Saskia's mother's tears are hypocritical & empty.  For this is what her morally depraved forefathers purchased for her," Cali Black Foot Soldier Augustus Dubois; Cali Penitentiary Islam Elders:  Brother Simpson called by God to fulfill vengeance against family's hypocrisy."

WHITE FAMILY TAKES BLACK YOUTH INTO THEIR HOME, ENDS UP WITH MURDERED DAUGHTER AND SEVERELY INJURED FATHER

Robert B. writes:

The fruits of liberalism—
The family “houses people in need”—who are total strangers, including a “troubled youth” who is also a total stranger and who just happens to be the same age as their beautiful daughter. The “troubled youth” gets into the house at 4 a.m. without having to break in. Did he have a key? My guess is that people came and went at their leisure. After all, the homicide victim’s seventeen year old boyfriend is also in the home at 4 a.m.—which is apparently “normal.”
So, allow me, please, to draw some conclusions. These people most likely belong to a non-traditional church that may be (likely) Catholic. By non-traditional I mean the kind that uses guitars for musical accompaniment instead of an organ. Part of the church’s program is to “house the poor.” When they run out of space in the church basement, they push these people out into congregant’s homes. This man obviously didn’t care if his daughter was having sex under his very nose as evidenced by the presence of his daughter’s boyfriend in his home at 4 a.m. Why else would the young man be there at that time of the night? He probably had apprehensions about the black youth’s behavior but decided it was his “inner racist” and fought it hard. Eventually, his “inner racist” got the better of him and he asked the “troubled youth” to leave. The “troubled youth” probably dwelt on the father’s racism as the father allowed another, most likely white, boy to stay in the home and have sex with his daughter. The “troubled youth” fulminated on this and decided to take revenge for being denied sex with the man’s daughter.  The second photo of the murdered girl speaks directly to the father’s intelligence. The father was stupid to allow a young black kid from a “troubled home” under the same roof with his hot-little-number daughter.  However, what I just said was from the perspective of not having read the additional information about the family’s rather liberal rules regarding visitors in the wee hours and its implications regarding morality.
I believe Robert B. may be on to something. If the daughter was promiscuous, the black kid may have made an approach, been turned down, possibly brusquely, assigned it to racism, and, being “troubled” (cf. nationalblackfootsoldiernetwork.blogspot.com), flew into a killing rage. But who knows, really.
My point is, the father’s an idiot. It’s all on his head, the way I see it. It happened under his brainless watch.
All of that aside and out of mind (what can one do!), I wish you a Merry

ALL OF THESE WORDS, FROM THE BLACK AND WHITE SIDE OF THINGS!  EQUALLY REPUGNANT!!

In those first few days, while our child's body and our home were CRIME SCENE's...  The media went to Saskia's facebook page, and stole her pictures and her favored quotes.  And then quoted these quotes, as HER WORDS!  And posted her picture, on these websites of HATRED!  With our names and address...


As you can see, our lives have been destroyed.  Every last vestige, is destroyed for us, to us!  With all that has happened, I can only look at life this way-

Catherine Burke died too, the morning of December 20, 2011...  I can point to the very spot, when her soul shattered, and left this physical embodiment.  It was her destiny, to die that morning.  But for all her life, Cat was good.  And beyond her death, she was rewarded for that extreme goodness. 

Many times that morning, her physical body was spared.  Something outside of herself, protected that body.  EVERYONE ELSE was injured in the ongoing battle with Simpson that morning!  At one point, after Simpson had stabbed her husband and the other child, Simpson had the knife raised over Cat, and she grabbed the blade, and incredibly her husband (bleeding profusely, with 1 collapsed lung) gathered the strength to tackle Simpson away, leaving Cat holding that knife!  Cat took two knives from Simpson in that battle, grabbing each one by the blade, and didn't get cut!  Her body was spared, so it could finish what needed to be done! 

To help all the children, in their time of mourning...  To see the police officer fired, for choosing to do nothing with the initial police report, that could have saved Saskia - to ensure that officer is never again allowed to make such an unforgivable mistake to someone else...  To hold the media accountable, for their lies - to show them that COMPASSION, at a time of great loss, is the only way humans should respond...  To make absolutely certain, WILLIAM GARY SIMPSON IS GIVEN THE DEATH PENALTY, so that none of her children will ever again, be forced to see him or fight to keep him from being paroled!

I do not speak in terms of Heaven and Hell.  But rather in terms of Good and Evil. 
For all that these people were Good, Evil coveted and came. 
These things are the last good, Cat can ever do. 

And do them, she will!
