An autistic man was tortured and shot with various guns and branded in Alva, OK. Again, another example of hickpack mentality.

The man's name is Harry Dahling should you come across it elsewhere. One of the commenters got the trend right. Bullies (kidnappers/saddistic criminals more accurately) are now videotaping their horrors. :(

Further research turned up more gruesomeness:

Orcutt said Jesse Wallace later told police he transferred the video's contents onto the DVDs and hoped to sell them.

"They wanted to make ‘Jackass' style video,” Orcutt said, referring to the former cable TV series depicting young men injuring themselves using different methods.

Orcutt said Wallace "didn't have an answer” for how he planned to sell the videos.

"He hadn't thought it through, obviously,” Orcutt said.

Orcutt said the abuse of the young autistic man made up 15 to 20 minutes of the video. In other segments, Dahling subjected his "friends” to abuse, which Orcutt conceded could pose a problem if the case goes to trial.

Orcutt said he suspects the video was shot within the past six months.

‘Boredom, mayhem and chaos'
According to the affidavit, a police officer recognized Wallace in the video because of a previous traffic stop.
The video depicted Wallace and others branding the letters B, M and C into Dahling's chest, the affidavit states.

Wallace told police those letters stand for boredom, mayhem and chaos, Orcutt said.

During the branding, the victim is heard screaming, "No, no, no, stop it, I don't want to go through any more pain,” according to the affidavit.

After being shot several times with the BB pistol and another gun, the victim cries and attempts to leave, but is cornered by Wallace and another man and told to get down or he will be shot again, the affidavit states.

He screams, "I'll be good, I'll be good” but Wallace uses the gun barrel to push the man's head to the floor, according to the affidavit.

In another scene, Dahling is shot several times with a paintball gun, then lifts his shirt to reveal welts.

Two could face 17 years
Wallace, 21, and Tarver, 22, were charged Tuesday in Woods County District Court with maiming and assault and battery with a deadly weapon. The combined maximum sentence is 17 years in prison upon conviction.
Wallace is on probation after pleading guilty last year to child abuse, domestic abuse and two cruelty-to-animals charges.

The child abuse involved a spiral leg fracture and bite marks on his 2-year-old stepchild. Wallace gave conflicting accounts about how the injuries occurred, court records show.

One of the animal cruelty charges involved a kitten that was thrown against a wall.


Bullies are cowards. They can't fight anyone their size so they pick on those whom they think they can get away with it with. It's not just about seeing an advantage and using it in a sporting environment, it's about secretly, covertly and cowardly taking out one's weakness out on others perceived to be weaker so as to consume their petty filthy weak lusts and pride.

These men should be branded Cowards for life in the public eye. While I take no pleasure in humiliation for these weak cowards, I think they deserve a taste of their own medicine out of Justice. I'll not enact cruelty on them as they did but I will call a duck a duck here.

Technically not in the "news media" since it hasn't reached that point, but there should be soon since the family is pressing charges. Anyone with advice about augmented communication (since the guy says they're "trying to help" his brother speak) or about some aspect of the legal situation, please do comment over there.

Short summary: police in Idaho saw an autistic 17-year-old have a meltdown, and despite his mother yelling protests, they tackled him, flipped him facedown onto his stomach, and handcuffed him. The family is pressing charges.

Fuller summary for anyone that can't watch/hear it, since he tells the story in a YouTube video.Collapse )

Giving a couple of articles because the information is unusually different in each one, and I don't feel up to sorting out which is best... I'm including a specific Google News search link his name.

"Gerard Fleming was a gentle man who died a violent death. The 35-year-old was stabbed at least twice in the upper body and then left for dead in Narrabeen, on the Northern Beaches, about 11.30pm on Saturday [June 16]."

Even though it's evidently not being investigated as a homicide, I'm including this one because I find the explanation suspicious in light of the apparent murder epidemic.

WCFCourier.com: Autistic girl found dead in pond after wandering away from home

"Police said Kaylie Dickerson's body was discovered around 3:45 p.m. in the retention pond about 300 feet from her home. ... Kaylie's mother reported her missing about 1:15 p.m. The girl's home had numerous devices meant to alert her parents if she left, but she somehow managed to get out anyway, police said."

(Moderators, feel free to delete the post if only official accusations of murder/abuse qualify.)
