10 Disturbing Tales From The Side Streets And Dark Alleys Of America

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Dark Alley - Photo by Joe MabelEvery night Americans prove that they are willing to do absolutely horrible things to their fellow human beings.  Most of the time, we never even hear about the sick and twisted things that happen on the side streets and dark alleys of America.  Once in a while a particularly twisted story will get picked up by the news, but usually most Americans are pretty much able to isolate themselves from the depravity that is happening all around them.  Unfortunately, the social decay that is eating away at our society like cancer is spreading.  It is getting harder and harder for average Americans to keep the darkness at bay.  When it suddenly reaches out and touches your family, it can be absolutely shocking.  America is not the kind, loving and gentle place that is portrayed in our movies and on our television shows.  The sad truth is that America is becoming colder and meaner with each passing day.  Yes, there are definitely some Americans that are kind and compassionate, but they are in the minority.  As our economic decline becomes even more severe, the hearts of even more Americans are going to grow cold.  And people with cold hearts can do some absolutely terrible things.  The following are 10 disturbing tales from the side streets and dark alleys of America…

#1 Beaten, Robbed And Left Naked In A Cow Pasture In Florida

A Florida man says that a first dated ended with him being beaten, forced to strip at gun point, robbed and then left in a cow pasture.

A Flagler County Sheriff’s Office case report obtained by NBC News indicated that 34-year-old Shaun Paul Williams was found naked and bloodied on State Road 100 in Bunnell. Williams told deputies that he had met a woman named “Tree” about two weeks ago in Dayton and agreed to go out on June 14.

When the woman picked him up on Friday, he discovered that two other men we also inside the vehicle. The woman explained that one of the men was her brother. She said that she needed to drop the men off at the brother’s home.

But instead of going to a home, the brother instructed the woman to stop at an “empty cow pasture.” Williams said that he exited the vehicle to urinate and was struck in the head with a “hard metal object.”

“Give me all your money and your clothes,” one of the men told him.

#2 Wendy’s Customer Totally Loses It When They Put Cheese On His Hamburger

In recent months there have been a lot of videos posted on YouTube of crazed people yelling wildly at employees of various fast food chains.  The most recent example of this phenomenon to go viral is a video of a middle-aged man totally losing it after he discovered that Wendy’s employees had put cheese on his hamburger.  You can watch the video here, but please be aware that it contains quite a bit of profanity and it is not appropriate for children to watch.  This is yet another example of how seemingly average people in America are becoming consumed with anger and frustration.

#3 Women Throwing Bleach Into The Eyes Of A Man On A City Bus In Boston

MBTA Police are searching for three young women who they say threw bleach in the eyes of a bus passenger after robbing him of his money.

The victim was returning home from work early Sunday morning, riding the #28 bus on Blue Hill Avenue through Roxbury, when it seems the trio sized him up.

Officials say one female slapped the man about the head, while one went to work to search him for money.

“One of the women puts her knee on top of his legs so he can’t get up and takes the money from his pockets,” MBTA Superintendent-in Chief Joseph O’Connor told WBZ-TV.

#4 The Wild Dogs Of St. Louis

Dangerous dogs are becoming more of a problem in parts of north St. Louis County.

It’s so bad, some people say they’re afraid to go out for a morning jog.

Resident Carolyn Immer says she was attacked and now has a hole in her leg.

“I felt like I was out in the middle of nowhere and there was nobody around to help,” Immer says. “I was screaming for a long time – it seemed like a long time lets put it that way.”

#5 Homeless In Dallas

So as of today I am officially homeless.

I won’t bore you all with long sob stories.

About a year ago lost my job of twelve years, couldn’t find new work, made some bad financial choices, and today I sit in the public library on my old laptop typing away as all my posessions lay in three small suitcases very close to where I am sitting.

I think this might possibly be the worst place to be homless, given the horrible heat.

So I have seventy-five cents to my name, am not sure where I’ll be putting my head down to sleep tonight, and was wondering if anyone else out there has been in a similar prediciment.

#6 Detroit – Dumping Ground For The Dead

From the street, the two decomposing bodies were nearly invisible, concealed in an overgrown lot alongside worn-out car tires and a mouldy sofa. The teenagers had been shot, stripped to their underwear and left on a deserted block.

They were just the latest victims of foul play whose remains went undiscovered for days after being hidden deep inside Detroit’s vast urban wilderness — a crumbling wasteland rarely visited by outsiders and infrequently patrolled by police.

Abandoned and neglected parts of the city are quickly becoming dumping grounds for the dead — at least a dozen bodies in the space of 12 months. And authorities acknowledge there is little they can do.

#7 Impaled On A Wrought Iron Fence In Chicago

A man was murdered Sunday night by someone who struck him in the head, causing him to become impaled on a wrought iron fence in the South Side Burnside neighborhood.

The 48-year-old victim was involved in a dispute with unknown individuals near his home in the 9100 block of South Greenwood Avenue about 8 p.m. Sunday when a male struck him in the head, police said.

The victim’s head was then impaled by a wrought iron fence near the eye, police said. He then fell to the ground and struck his head again.

#8 Robbery Victims Locked In The Trunks Of Their Own Vehicles In North Miami

CBS4 has learned of a horrible crime that has happened four times in the past two months in the city of North Miami. Gunmen have been forcing robbery victims in to the trunks of their cars while trying to get cash.

North Miami Police Major Neal Cuevas says he is worried about “copycat criminals” who may one day take a life.

One victim is speaking out exclusively to CBS4’s Peter D’Oench after being driven around in the trunk of his Mercedes Benz for two hours on Wednesday night. He was abducted at 8 p.m. while leaving his job and was finally rescued by police at 10 p.m. after discovering he had a cell phone in his trunk and after calling 911.

#9 Female Teacher Has Sex With Three Students In Oregon

A Sherwood High School teacher has been arrested and faces sexual abuse charges, stemming from accusations of sexual contact with at least three students.

A grand jury indicted Denise Keesee, 38, Monday on six counts of second-degree sexual abuse, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s office. Keesee turned herself in this evening, said Sgt. David Thompson, a sheriff’s office spokesman.

#10 A Police Officer That Shot Five Kittens While Children Were Watching

The Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals wants Humane Officer Barry Accorti fired for allegedly shooting five kittens in a home’s back yard on Monday.


Accorti responded to a home Monday afternoon where a feral mother cat and her five kittens were living in a woodpile.

He allegedly told the homeowner that shelters were full and that the cats would be going to kitty heaven. He then pulled out his gun and shot the five, 8- to 10-week-old kittens.

Accorti allegedly told the homeowner that he isn’t supposed to do this, but it was justifiable. The woman ran into the house to shield her children, who were screaming and crying.

So what do you think about these stories?

    All sad. Unfortunately I have been desensitized to all of this because of how common it has become. Even up here in Canada we have started to see these things. Murder just for the sake of a thrill or sexual gratification of some sort. I am glad that we have good bank laws but those will only shield us for so long. We have police but it is also the same boat. They can only shield us for so long. Times have changed and too many depend on others to take care of them financially, to feed them, shelter them, to protect them. All civilizations fall. This one may not soon but it will.

    • Johnson

      My friend who lives in Ottawa was telling me that Canadian teachers have s3x with students and don’t lose their jobs but if you dare protest on the streets the police would put you in a quasi-concentration camp as they did in 2010.

      • disqus_DVKQtM6xdj

        Your friend is telling you the truth. The G20 summit was just stupidity on everyone’s part. A lot of people here don’t even know about the East Avenue holding centre. As far as the teachers. There’s not a lot in the news. I do work for a school board here and have heard rumors. It seems like they’re shuffled quietly to the board offices and given a full paying job to photocopy.

    • MAL3313

      Better check on those “good bank laws”. Both Canada and the U.S. have followed suit with the European Union and changed the status of depositors to creditors and moved them to the back of the line in the event of bank failures. The legal mechanism for a Cypress style bail in has been established..

      • disqus_DVKQtM6xdj

        Well… You’re right on that. I am talking overall though. It is going downhill as most people on this site will agree. Canadian and American banks need to stop lending and use a real interest rate.

        • MAL3313

          True but at least Canada came to it’s senses while Americans are still wallowing in self pity (and I am an American). Canadians began to realize that destroying business, innovation and enterprise is like cutting of one’s nose to spite one’s face. That’s why they weathered the crisis much better than Americans did. The refusal of the Keystone pipeline is sheer idiocy by the White House. Canada has already indicated that they are prepared to build a pipeline to Vancouver and ship the oil to China if the U. S. doesn’t get on board. That would use about 10% of the energy produced just to ship it to China where it will be burned anyway.

  • cateye

    A shroud of darkness is descending over us. Mike, you did not mention Kermit Gosnell, or the “clinic” in Texas where similar things happened. Granted these acts did not occur on a side street or a dark alley, but they might as well have for the lack of attention. Any society that allows a Kermit Gosnell to practice his craft for years is doomed.

    • MichaelfromTheEconomicCollapse

      That is an excellent point.


    • Ayn Rand

      Live near Philly. I saw plenty of news footage of Gosnell. That bas*ard had a smile on his face right up until he was found guilty. I hope they beat and rape him in prison.

      • cateye

        Other than in Philly, there was almost no mention about the grisly trial. The Wash Post was hammered for not covering what they considered a local crime story, sort of like how they ignored the local crime stories in Newtown and Aurora…/sarc/…..the mainstream media has sold us out for a place at the alter of big government. When all is said and done, there is going to be a serious accounting for the corruption of the media.


    I got a e-mail last night from a friend of mine that said she went shopping and came out to her car and there was a man in it smoking dope. I had my own drama back in march when my wife walked out the back door at 10.30 at night and there was a man in the bushes next to the door. I almost shot him. I would suggest everyone arm themselves and get ready because it will get a whole lot worse than it is now.

    • Tim

      Why was your wife going out at 10:30 at night?

      • Shmeggle Marxist

        maybe to throw out the garbage? are we shut ins now?

      • Boo-urns

        Does it matter?

      • Adrian

        Maybe to get some night air? People are free to do such things, or used to be.

    • Ralfine

      Maybe he was hungry and wanted to look through your trash?

  • Rufus T Firefly

    A. Clockwork Orange

  • Highlander

    My advice to everyone is get tough, get mentally, emotionally and physically tough, its coming on fast!

    • Hope

      Actually what people need to be doing is getting straight with God. Turn to His word (all of His word, not the stuff man has changed over time), repent, and look to Him for your salvation. Christ said those who try to save their own life will lose it (Luke 9:24).

      • Judas

        My brother, its good to pray, but we are in economic collapse due to bank’s actions, we have to change that in this life, jesus, mohommed, and confucious all want worldly and eternal salvation and that means ending the suffering of ours kids now. you know we all have gods, we don’t all agree about them, thats okay, but maybe we should leave that part at home and use the love of our fellow people in public

        half our kids are starving now, does god make them starve because some pray to the wrong god?

        Its good to do good, whether you do it because you are religious or just because its the right thing, we gotta keep that to ourselves if we the people are going to united against the our captors and the corporations they own.

        unite and fight


        • SAM

          I agree that “it’s good to do good,” but I disagree with what you wrote regarding religion. Religion is what gives meaning to peoples’ lives. Regardless of whether one is a Christian, Muslim, or Jew etc. we should not keep religion to ourselves. There needs to be dialogue between people of different faiths so that misunderstandings can be addressed and hostilities be reduced.

          • sharonsj

            I disagree. I have my own religion and I don’t need yours (or even to hear about it). I do agree about dialog. But so far the only dialog I get out here is people trying to convert me.

    • Johnson

      when it fits the fan it isnt going to be a pretty picture!

    • Syrin

      Exactly. Steps 1-3 for preparing are:

      1) Mentally prepare
      2) Mentally prepare
      3) mentally prepare

    • Magdiel

      You R 100% right. Men nowadays must forsake the effeminacy that reigns in todays society and start doing what MEN are supposed to do,we must fill ourselves with courage and mental and bodily strength. Forsake your TVs and magazines and spend your free time reading history and learn from it. Read about the Greeks facing the innumerable Persian hosts,read of how the Romans behaved with Hannibal at the doors of the city, etc. read about such things and learn from them,read,read,read!!!

  • jim

    I was recently kidnapped in Kenya and robbed. I was even with a wealthy family. Unfortunately I think as inequality grows wealthy people or even those lucky enough to say middle class are going to be targets.

  • K

    Wish I could say any of this surprises me. I lived in FL most of my life. And the only thing about those stories that surprised me, is the victims were left alive. From the time they passed the law, until I left the State, I had a carry permit. Where I live now, if i go out late at night. More likely to bump into a bear, than a felon. Can tell you, the bears have better manners.

  • capacitated

    #3 might have been a hate crime but the mainstream media will never hint at that possibility.

    • Bad_Mr_Frosty

      It’s only a hate crime when the victim is black, otherwise it’s “social justice”, just ask Eric Holder.

      • HerrinSchadenfreude

        Is that sort of like how it’s only a race card when the dealer is Black?

    • BonusGift

      Actually, by my rough count, all the violent crimes were committed in knee-grow areas (and by extension the likely perpetrators were also knee-grows); and I don’t think freaking out about having cheese on your hamburger is equivalent to throwing chemicals in someone’s eyes with the intent to blind them or equivalent to impaling someone on a fence and killing them.

  • condaggitt

    The racial makeup of the city was 42.33% White, 32.96% Black or African American, 0.71% Native American, 0.76% Asian, 0.06% Pacific Islander, 18.11% from other races, and 5.07% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 36.30% of the population.

    • Ralfine

      I am glad that there are not many whites in my neighbourhood. there is one white woman yelling at her kids and her husband all day long, but thats about it. the asians are cooking, and their kids are doing homework.

  • Joel Peeters

    TV Series like “Criminal Minds” and “CSI” have still good days ahead… reality is bigger than fiction…

  • Ralfine



    • sharonsj

      You are joking, right? It’s the investigative journalists who actually tell us the truth.

  • Ralfine

    #4 Dogs taste a bit like mutton. There are no feral dogs in china. Their diet is more varied.

  • Ralfine

    Oregon police must be so bored by not having any murders to pursue that they resort to telling 16 year olds that they didnt score a milf, but were victims of sexual abuse.

  • Wetwork

    See you all at the post-apocalyptic mixer…

  • Becoming ever more common, sadly.

    Last night I got a call from a friend. Her nephew who is visiting her to help with her health issues was mugged at knife point outside a busy grocery store. The town’s police station is less than half a mile up the road.

    This is in a large city. Five cop cars showed up afterward to investigate.

  • Stezie

    Basically, this is how Empires die. Rot from within.

  • JulietteofOhio

    Praise the Lord, I have no personal stories to relate. I have noticed how many people are both angry and discouraged. There seems to be a general feeling of malaise coupled with dread, for which I blame the political climate and the extreme ill-will shown to everyday people by the media, and the same from us to the top politicians. No one trusts anyone in the government from Obama on down to a small town mayor. The contempt shown to us by every level of the government is stunning. People are afraid and trying to stay out of the spotlight, but this will soon change, and there will be a rebellion. Our state’s senators don’t bother to respond to questions, other than to ask for donations. It’s obvious they feel they are far too exalted to listen to a constituent or to live by the laws they force on us. As helpful religious guidelines are disappearing, so is any form of civil discourse, and there seems to be no internal conscience or brake on public behavior.

  • piccadillybabe

    I am not an orthodox religious person (went to church growing up) but I find myself doing a lot of praying these days. The ritual of prayer whether it be for gratitude of one’s life or blessing others is a good thing in times such as these. It forces one to stop, slow down and think about the big picture and gain perspective. We take so much for granted in this country but as we all know, the life we know now is on its way out and prayer helps one keep in touch with our inner voice, thoughts and feelings. Such an easy thing to do but so empowering.

  • Jagrick

    Examples above have been happening for years and years and all the broken homes is catching up.

  • Andrei Cosmin

    I don’t understand why Americans don’t immigrate if life is so bad in the States. A friend of mine in Dallas, TX will be coming over to Romania in a couple of months. Gathered all his life savings, liquidating all assets and moving onto a new life. We’re gonna be opening a small restaurant together and it’s gonna be enough to allow him to live better than his current job in the States.

    Take all the former Socialist republics in Eastern Europe: Ukraine, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Serbia, Montenegro, all of them. They’re full of resources, people are white, Christian, Caucasian (no immigrants from Asia or Africa), business-friendly environment, low business startup costs, low rents (furnished 2-room apartment in a decent area of Bucharest 300$/month + around 50$ for heating, gas, electricity, cable tv and internet expenses), decent level of services (Romania has 3rd fastest internet connection in Europe for example), everybody speaks English etc…

    The entire Eastern Europe is the same. Only problem is that you can’t make too much out of a salary, you need to start a business in order to keep up your American lifestyle.

  • Boo-urns

    As I posted earlier and was removed, the kitten killing cop needs to be shot in the fact in front of his family. Seriously. Anyone that soulless doesn’t deserve his badge or his life. I’ll gladly take this on, just set it up.

    You can’t make this sh#t up, well you probably could but who would believe you.

    No God, no peace. Know God, know peace.

    I’m convinced there is no greater truth now that God has been removed from the public square.

  • Daystrom2012

    Don’t have time to go into detail as I am off to work. Religion is mans attempt to get to God while Christianity is God coming to man through His son Jesus. Jesus chastised the people of His day as they could tell what the weather was going to be like by looking at the skies but could not discern the times in which they lived,ie the Messiah was in their midst and fulfilled prophecy to the letter. Read Matthew 24 and 2Tim 3:1-6. We are there and the Lord’s return is near, but it’s going to get real bad very soon before He comes. Keep your eyes on Jerusalem and :1)Damascus(isa 17)

  • Todd A. Geiger

    C’mon Michael, these are all actions initiated by individuals, not the collective referred to as “Americans”. The individuals committing these acts are responsible for their deeds, not the collection of individuals comprising the American society. Each and every individual is free to choose to initiate action based on their own subjective preference rankings, and each faces the consequences of their choice. To blame these individual actions on society is intellectually lazy.

  • kibo

    how do you boil a frog? the problem is that too many people accept this all as the new normal…they stay in and watch it all on tv and shake their heads and say how glad they are that it’s not them….but it is them…..until people truly realize the crap corner they’ve been forced into and are able to identify the ones responsible……start at global banksters and work your way down…Tel Aviv, London, New York…sigh…you can’t save people that don’t think they need saving and are unwilling to stand up and take back their freedom….Even God prefers aware participation in your own salvation from the ruthless shylocks that plot our demise daily……where’s the outrage? we accept msm lies and pray that we’re not next…..and if God has to slap us hard to get us to open up our eyes….don’t say we don’t deserve it.

  • j h

    I have a job. How long it will last I do not know. I look everyday on Job Center of Wisconsin’s website. Pretty said too see what’s out there. Especially when your 47 years old. I do not see anything in college that I want to take up for school.
    I just keep hanging on.

  • Cathy

    After “4 Dead In Ohio” I vowed to leave. 40+ yrs on, it’s the best decision I ever made. It was scarey to face the unknown, but not as scarey as drowning in a known cesspool. Be strong, be structured, be prepared. “Where iniquity doth abound, grace doth much more abound.” Love, Prayers from NZ

  • Judy Collins

    The sad fact is, you were sold a bill of goods, which may have mattered in a more moral country. U thought the MORAL state would protect you and your kids, they will not, can’t afford too anymore, sometimes it is the choice between a lesser of 2 evils, your husband and father of your kids who provided for you along with his sins, or where you are now and facing death and starvation. The world isn’t a pretty place, have to make hard choices. The husband may be scum, but what about the drug dealer pimp who may now have access to your daughter in a homeless shelter? Choices…..
