BORN: May 24, 1986 AD
DIED: September 26, 1999 AD
Jesse Dirkhising would have been 22 in 2008 had he survived his torture at the hands of two perverted homosexuals, Joshua Brown, then 22, and his live-in “partner/lover” David Don Carpenter, 38. Instead, the Prairie Grove, Arkansas boy never lived as long as Brown. He died a slow, painful, awful death at the tender age of thirteen, bound, gagged, after being repeatedly and viciously assaulted.
Should anyone care to read the lurid details of the attacks on Jesse, please refer to http://www.armyofgod.com/JesseDirkhising.html. Warning: Those details, which I refuse to print here, are repugnant and not for the faint of heart. The trial judge understandably felt shivers up his spine listening to them.
That website also includes an abundance of other material concerning the case, including information on the trials and convictions of Brown and Carpenter and various articles on homosexuality. None are endorsements. And none are politically correct.
Why write about Jesse Dirkhising today? Because of the recent rape and murder in Philadelphia of a young North Dakotan man, Jason Shephard, who was the subject of my previous article, and whose case, as with Jesse’s, is being purposefully ignored by the mass media.
The history of homosexual violence is repeating itself.
The question is, Why? Another question is, How many other, similar attacks never “make the news?” Obviously, every story involving violent crimes cannot be afforded space in newspapers or time on tv networks but these were distinctively horrendous.
Both cases had all the sensational features of blockbuster stories that newspapers normally crave: Two innocent people, one barely 13, one barely launched in a career, had been senselessly killed in the homes of their murderers. Under normal circumstances, it would be big news, follow-up news, but they were shelved.
What single factor distinguished those crimes from the case of Matthew Shepard, the young homosexual sudent who became an international cause after he was beaten and left to die, tied to a fence post in Wyoming? (See prevous article.) If anything, Shepard’s murder was far less lurid than Jesse’s and Jason’s since there were some suggestions that he may have been complicit in his fate and Jesse and Jason were clearly innocent victims.
As with Shepard’s assailants, Jesse’s and Jason’s murderers received life sentences, the jurors in the former’s case refusing to bring back the death penalty that the prosecutor had sought. Instead, they recommended life without parole enabling the miscreants to live out their sorry existences in the friendly confines of an American prison.
One of Jesse’s murderers actually had the gall to suggest the child had asked to be tortured, gall matched by Jason’s murderer, William Smithson, his work supervisor.
It was Smithson, who had been known to host druggie, gay sex parties at his home, who notified Jason’s family that he was missing and who picked his parents up at the airport, knowing that the Shepard’s son lay naked, strangled by him, and dead in his basement. He didn’t say much to the parents: (http://www3.allaroundphilly.com/blogs/delcotimes/gils/2008/11/jason-shephards-dad-takes-stand.html)
So, what was lacking in the latter incidents that caused those stories to be buried in newsrooms?
The answer is both simple and disturbing.
Shepard was gay and was killed by two deranged animals. Dirkhising and Shephard were not gay and were victims of deranged homosexual animals. In line with the journalistic axiom that dog bites man, not news, man bites dog, definitely news, Shepard was deemed the dog bitten by his assailants.
Our media always seem to consider homosexuals to be victimized and always hastens to dismiss and then proceed to ignore evidence to the contrary.
Please refer to my 8 part series on homosexuality in America and especially the two articles on “Rampaging Gays,” http://www.genelalor.com/blog1/index.php?s=HOMOSEXUALS.
As seen in those articles, when gay people were mostly “in the closet,” they undoubtedly were cruelly victimized. Since they exited those closets and over the past three decades, they have flourished at the same time they have been running amuck and our media have been acting as their enablers.
I earlier posed the question of why. There are only two reasonable answers. One, our media is controlled by homosexuals or, two, our media is obsessed with the idea of recompense.
There is a third possibility, namely, a combination of both.
Whatever the case, it’s time for a change. The media should remember that a pendulum swings both ways and when it swings back the results could very well be uglier than the murders of Jesse and Jason.
