Joliet Authorities: 4 Young Adults Rob, Murder 2 Friends, Then Continue ‘Party Atmosphere’
http://chicago.cbslocal.com ^ | January 11, 2013

Posted on 01/12/2013 9:46:39 PM PST by BBell

JOLIET, Ill. (STMW) — Police say four young adults, one the son of a Joliet police sergeant, lured two friends to a house, robbed and strangled them and then played video games until police arrived.

After attempting to dismember the bodies Thursday afternoon, the suspects “continued the party atmosphere,” Police Chief Mike Trafton said.

“This is one of the most brutal, heinous and upsetting things I’ve ever seen in my 27 years of law enforcement,” Trafton said Friday. “Not only the crime scene, but the disregard for common decency toward human beings.”

Adam M. Landerman, 19; Alisa R. Massaro, 18; Bethany L. McKee, 18; and Joshua F. Miner, 24, were charged about 4 p.m. Friday with six counts of first-degree murder for the Thursday deaths of Eric Glover, 22, and Terrence O. Rankins, 22, at Massaro’s house, 1121 N. Hickory St. All four are being held in lieu of $10 million bail.

The races are correct for the MSM.

At this point in our country, I don’t believe anything that the MSM passes off as “news.” The media is solidly and demonstrably in the bag for the Obama administration and likely to the point that they would take orders and/or ideas for fake “stories” to fill a narrative.

They’ve shown that the Obama administration is trying to create an atmosphere of racial distrust across the nation. Not just between blacks and whites but Hispanics, Asians, American Indians, and others.

While I cannot allow the monstrosity of this story to pass unnoticed, the overall believability of it ranks somewhere south of UFOs landing in the Rose Garden. Our youth espouse a culture of violence, nihilism, and sloth, but in Chicago, I can’t believe that the child of a law enforcement officer and his friends would deign to kill some black kids for sport.

Good lord. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard of a case like this, but the complete lack of conscience or basic human morality involved never ceases to shock me.

Prayers for the victims’ families, and also for the families of these murdering scum. I cannot imagine the suffering they are going through right now.

This will get Jesse and Al on the Midnight Special to Joliet -= Maybe Joliet will get to keep them =

Might even bring Jesse Jr to the table.

Got to be drugs but ‘they’ will twist it so that the 4 doers were stiffing the two doees and had to off them.

I really love the ‘angelic’ pictures they managed to dig up for the 4.

I expect you’re right. Had the races been reversed, as statistics for murders illustrate is far more common, there wouldn’t be photographs of those involved, as is now the case here.

It is interesting that even most of the FReepers on here have taken the MSM story at face value.
It may very well be just as reported, but I am not betting on it.

Totally agree with you, AlexW. DO NOT BELIEVE WHAT YOU READ AS REPORTED BY THE MSM.

There are two great Chicago cop blogs that I read...I’ll get the real story, if there is one, and pass it on. You should NOT believe anything the MSM prints...in Chicago, I can vouch that they do nothing but lie, but then we ALL know they lie across the board because they work for obozo.

Stay tuned for the real story....

From her MySpace page, it looks like she and her friends are fans of Insane Clown Posse.

The logo of the meat cleaver-carrying clown is her background image.

Yeah. Feral youth.

MMFWCL to all my fam

Who I'd like to meet:

Time flows like a dark horde, consuming all in its path. Man lives his life in the blink of an eye. Just as day becomes night, all life fades into death. In death each person will be judged for his deeds performed while alive. There are the few who walk a life of purpose, and there are those who trod the path of greed, their souls host to demons. Time slows near each person's end. Those whose deeds were evil grasp onto life as long as they can because, though they don't know what awaits them in the afterlife, they feel for them it is a horror beyond words. Time stops in this world, as the heart becomes still and the soul leaves the body. In the afterlife time is eternal, and even death is but a new beginning. For you see, when you step into death your soul steps upon the floor of a dark chamber and you look to see it empty, except for a strange looking box on an old wooden table. On the front of the box, you will see a painted question mark faded with time and a twisted crank handle on its side. Turning the handle, a sharp melodic tune will fill the air. For the evil ones this sound will be a deafening noise reverberating off the walls and building into a climatic terror. But the surprise is when the music stops as you slowly turn the handle... and then the top of the box pops. For the few, they will see a vision of God with a golden light warming their souls as they step forth into eternal peace. For most they will see a fog seeping from the box, stripping their sanity, as they witness an image of hell, spawned and formed from their own evil; a hideous reflection of their demented souls. The floor of the room begins falling away as they plummet into a bottomless pit full of shadowy creatures, forever to be lost in a sinister void. What will be in store for you is the mystery, but if you take a look within yourself you will find the answer. For now, you still have time to change the outcome of... the mighty RIDDLE BOX! ....

Where were the parents? Good question. Alisa Massaro is bipolar, a cutter, has been hospitalized for depression, and is an Insane Clown Posse fan, but her father didn't see any warning signs.
“All I can say is it’s a terrible thing that happened, and I can’t believe my daughter had anything to do with it,” he said in a brief telephone interview. “I don’t know what happened. I just don’t know what to say. I can’t really talk about it. I’m too devastated, and I can’t talk about it.”

From his MySpace page, it appears that Adam Michael is barely literate. Try to read the messages. Or not.

According to him, his favorite movie is "Scarface."

(A "Bethanii McKee" is mentioned on his page, who is also accused in the murders).
