Energy is important to our society since having access to energy such as electricity and gas is essential to sustain a modern life (Sheridan and Zuniga, 2019). This blog post examines how informal governance within the Venezuelan state has changed the country’s energy sector and how it is closely interlinked with its current socio-political crisis. […]

There are currently 737 inmates on the state’s death row, the nation’s largest. Among the condemned inmates, here are some of the Bay Area’s notorious killers.

The Mercury News
Here is a brief look at some of the more notorious death row inmates who will be temporarily spared under Gov. Gavin Newsom’s executive order halting executions in California while he is in office. Darnell Williams Williams killed 8-year-old Alaysha Carradine in Oakland and 22-year-old Anthony Medearis in Berkeley in separate shootings in 2013. In the former, Williams’ intended target was the ex-girlfriend of a man he believed had killed a friend. Alaysha reportedly told a paramedic “I’m dead” before she died from a gunshot wound to the base of her neck. Lonnie Franklin Jr. From 1985 to 2007, Franklin killed at least nine women and one teenage girl in a Los Angeles neighborhood ravaged by the crack cocaine epidemic. He was dubbed the “Grim Sleeper” because police originally thought there was a gap in the killings from 1988 to 2002. “You are truly a piece of evil,” survivor Enietra Washington told him at his sentencing. Cary Stayner Stayner killed Yosemite National Park naturalist Joie Armstrong and three tourists in 1999. He is the older brother of Steven Stayner, who was kidnapped in 1972 by Kenneth Eugene Parnell of Berkeley. Marcus Wesson Wesson shot and killed nine of his children in 2004. The killings, described as the worst mass murder in Fresno’s history, were sparked by a child custody dispute. “It’s better to die than have the government or some agency break up the family,” a prosecutor quoted Wesson as telling his children, who ranged in age from 1 to 25 years old. Charles Ng From 1983 to 1985, Ng is believed to have raped, tortured and killed at least a dozen people at a Calaveras County cabin. An accomplice, Leonard Lake, committed suicide. Joseph Naso Naso killed at least six women over the span of nearly two decades. He was brought to justice after a probation check at his Reno home revealed incriminating writings and photographs, including a diary that documented a half century of rapes and sex crimes. “I don’t want him to die,” said one victim’s son. “I want him to feel what it’s like to lose everything.” Nathan Burris In 2009, Burris shot and killed ex-girlfriend Deborah Ross and “Chucky” Everette on the Richmond-San Rafael. Authorities said Burris was angry over his breakup with Ross, a toll taker on the bridge, and jealous of her friendship with Everette, a Golden Gate Transit driver. David Mills Mills shot and killed James Martin, Dale Griffin and Rebecca Martinez in Oakland in 2005 during what was supposed to be a meeting in which he returned a gun belonging to Martinez’s ex-boyfriend. Shots intended for a fourth victim, Elizabeth Martinez, instead hit a pit bull in her lap. A motive for the triple murder was never established. Melvin Forte Forte kidnapped, raped and killed a 23-year-old German woman in San Jose in 1981. When Forte was convicted in 2010, he was already serving a life sentence for a 1982 San Francisco carjacking murder in which he shot Dawn O’Malley and her fiancé, David Wallace. O’Malley survived and testified during the penalty phase of Forte’s trial. Rodrigo Ortiz Paniagua In 2005, Paniagua stabbed and killed his pregnant girlfriend, Leticia Chavez, and two young daughters in San Jose. “My daughter and my grandchildren didn’t get a choice, so why should he?” said Chavez’s mother, Dorothy Gutierrez, after the jury recommended the death penalty. Joseph Cordova Cordova raped and killed an 8-year-old San Pablo girl in 1979. DNA evidence was used to tie him to the murder in 2002. At the time, Cordova was serving a sentence for child molestation in Colorado. Carl Molano In 1995, Molano raped and killed Suzanne McKenna at her home in Hayward. “This is everything we were hoping for,” a relative said after the jury recommended the death penalty. “We did it for Sue.” Irving Alexander Ramirez [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”]Ramirez shot and killed San Leandro police Officer Nels “Dan” Niemi in 2005. Niemi was responding to a disturbing-the-peace call when he encountered Ramirez, who had drugs and guns in his possession and feared returning to jail for those violations. After the first shot sent Niemi to the ground, Ramirez stood over him and fired his gun six more times Alexander Hamilton In 2005, Hamilton shot and killed Pittsburg police Officer Larry Lasater while fleeing an armed robbery. “This jury recognized that and sent a message that they will protect their protectors,” said Lasater’s mother Phyllis Loya after the jury recommended the death penalty. Scott Peterson Peterson killed his pregnant wife Laci in 2002. He has maintained his innocence and claims she was killed sometime after he left their Modesto home the morning of Christmas Eve to go fishing in the San Francisco Bay, where her body was found. In an appeal last year, Peterson said his famous attorney Mark Geragos bungled his trial. Richard Allen Davis Davis, a career criminal who became the poster boy for California’s enactment of the three-strikes-and-you’re-out law, kidnapped 12-year-old Polly Klaas from a slumber party and then raped and killed her before leaving her body near Cloverdale in 1993. In 2009, the state Supreme Court rejected his bid to overturn his 1996 convictions and death sentence https://youtu.be/Dldv8fit5O8

Noam Chomsky recently took to the pages of The Intercept to give his blessing to the US military’s occupation of Syria, solidifying his support for the Pentagon after years of having done so in slightly more anguished terms. As far as the occupation, the only concession to what might once have been considered “Leftist” values […]
