Durham Residents Help Catch Notorious Aggressive Driver

DURHAM, NC – An aggressive driver, whose antics behind the wheel caused locals to use social media to get him off the road, has had his sentencing delayed after a judge questioned his plea deal that would have him serve no jail time.

Close your eyes. Now imagine the most aggressive driver you’ve ever encountered. Imagine someone even more aggressive than that. No, even worse.

Imagine a Road Douche so bad that other social-media-savvy local drivers teamed up with police to hunt his ass down and kill him.

Okay, that last part is just wishful thinking on my part. You can open your eyes now.

The asshole you are looking at is Maurice Beckwith, 52, of Durham, NC, and he is the King of the Road Douches.

I don’t know what his problem is, maybe a bad case of “Boy Named Sue” syndrome, or a pair of undescended testicles, or a chronic case of Vaginal Silicosis.

Whatever it is, he’s had it for a long time; he has “driving while license revoked” convictions as far back as January of 2003, so he’s definitely an OG Road Douche.

As far back as 2016, residents in the Guess Road area of Durham were encountering a road-raging driver so hostile that many of them were frightened.

David Waters’ encounter with Maurice in October 2016 is a typical example.

Waters was driving home from Sunday church services when he stopped on Guess Road to turn onto Horton Road. A driver behind him had a problem with this and laid on his horn.

Waters made his turn onto Horton and the angry driver, none other than our good buddy Maurice, followed him, passing him illegally across a double-yellow line and then slamming on his brakes in an apparent attempt to get Waters to hit him.

When Waters managed to stop in time, Road Douche stopped his car in the middle of the road and got out, actually opening his trunk as if going for a weapon.

Waters, quite reasonably thinking he was about to be attacked, began to dial 911, and Maurice got back in his Douchemobile and drove away. Waters followed him until their routes diverged, with Maurice brake-checking him the entire way.

By February 2017, so many people were reporting harrowing run-ins with the then-unknown Road Douche of North Durham that both the Durham County Sheriff’s Office and the Durham PD were issuing warnings to residents of the area on social media.

The next month, an officer lucked up and caught some of Maurice’s hijinks on dash-cam, resulting in charges for reckless driving and driving too closely. You can see the video below.

About time for some justice, right? Not really.

Maurice’s lawyer managed to drag the case out over the issue of competency, especially after Maurice was involuntarily committed to Duke Hospital in August 2017. A defense expert found Road Douche unable to stand trial in December, but an expert for the prosecution was later able to successfully refute that opinion.

So, in February of this year, Maurice cut a deal, and it was a pretty good deal for him: only 60 days jail time, and that was even suspended. He lost his license for 6 months and got 18 months of supervised probation and 50 hours of community service. Oh, and a badly needed mental assessment and some counseling.

As much of a bullshit sentence as this is for someone who could have very easily gotten someone killed with his douchebaggery, Maurice thought it was too harsh. He appealed.

The next judge obviously thought that the first judge was a slacker, as she doubled his community service and yanked his license for 12 more months to boot. Good job, but not good enough in my opinion.

And that’s where it would have ended if it wasn’t for our hero, David Waters.

You see, an assistant district attorney told Waters that he could go to a magistrate and swear out a warrant against Maurice for his actions during their encounter, and that’s just what Waters did.

Thanks to Waters’ willingness to seize the initiative, Road Douche was recently convicted of assault with a deadly weapon (his vehicle) and reckless driving for his Sunday shenanigans. He drew 150 days in jail and another 18 months of probation, to run concurrently with the probation from the March 2017 arrest.

Maurice appealed this conviction as well, trying to dodge any active jail time. During a July 24th appeal hearing, a plea deal was discussed that would do just that, but Superior Court Judge Vince Rozier put the kibosh on it.

Judge Rozier took issue with the idea of Maurice getting a lighter sentence this time than he did for the first conviction.

We need more judges like Judge Rozier.

Of course, Road Douche’s attorney is playing lawyerball, and the case has been continued until the 27th of this month.

We’ll see if Maurice can weasel out of his allotted time in the pokey.

Hopefully not; I hear they have some really effective attitude-adjustment programs in the Durham County slammer. In one of them, you actually find out why they call it “the slammer,” so it’s educational too.

Wisconsin Roofer Accused Of Killing Co-Worker With Circular Saw

RIVER FALLS, WI – Police in Wisconsin have arrested a roofer after they say he killed a co-worker with a circular saw.

Two roofers got into some kind of altercation while working on a roof Monday afternoon, leading to one man dead and the other in jail for his murder.

Police say they were called to the home at around 4:30 p.m. and found 37-year-old Israel Valles-Flores unconscious with severe lacerations to his face and neck.

Nothing could be done to save the man and he would be pronounced dead at the scene.

His co-worker, 24-year-old Maguel Nabarro, has been accused of killing Valles-Flores with a circular saw.

Nabarro was charged with intentional homicide and placed in the Pierce County Jail. Police have not given a motive behind the attack, stating the investigation is still ongoing.

Virginia Woman Accused Of Shooting Her Two Young Daughters, Killing One

TYSONS CORNER, VA — A mother has been arrested after she shot her two daughters, killing her 5-year-old and critically injuring another.

On Sunday night, a 911 call was made by 33-year-old Veronica Youngblood who stated she had just killed her two daughters.

When Fairfax County police officers arrived at her apartment they did not find Youngblood but did find her two daughters had been shot.

One of the girls, 5-year-old Brooklynn Youngblood, had been shot in the head and was pronounced dead at the scene. Her old sister was still alive and rushed to the hospital where she is in critical condition.

A short time later a was made to 911 from an acquaintance of Youngblood’s who told the dispatcher that Youngblood arrived at their residence and that there was “cause for concern.”

When police arrived at that location they found Youngblood as well as the gun they believe was used to shoot her two daughters.

Youngblood was arrested and charged with murder. She’s currently being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center without bond.

Police have not released a motive, but court records show Youngblood has been in a years-long custody fight with Brooklynn’s father after their divorce.

The pair were in court recently to discuss custody, visitation and child support. Youngblood agreed to move to Missouri where her ex was being relocated to uphold the terms of their custody agreement, but she wanted to stay in Virginia.

The couple were expected to move at the beginning of this month.

Homeless Man Charged With Sex Crime After Mom Left Him Alone With Minor

YORK, SC – A homeless man has been charged after a woman left him alone with her 13-year-old daughter and he propositioned the teen while performing sex acts on himself.

Leonard Dale Dover is a shitty guest.

An unnamed York County, South Carolina mother saw the homeless man get caught in a downpour and took pity on him. She invited him into her home so that he could get out of the rain.

Then, for some completely inexplicable reason that I just cannot fathom, she went to the store and left her 13-year-old daughter alone with Dover.

Left her 13-year-old daughter alone with a man that she didn’t know from Adam.

Daughter. Alone. Strange man. Let that sink in.

I give this lady all the credit in the world for being compassionate. Helping a fellow human that is in distress is a laudable thing to do. Seriously.

But. And this is a big ‘but’. Third-row-of-the-church-choir-sized ‘but’.

According to the National Alliance on Metal Illness, of homeless adults staying in shelters, an estimated 46% “live with severe mental illness and/or substance use disorders.”

That’s one in two. Flip a coin. Heads, you win, tails, your daughter loses.

And that’s out of the population that has it together well enough to be able to stay in a shelter. The odds are even worse among those that aren’t allowed into the shelters because of past behavioral problems.

Well, like an inauspicious start to a ballgame, Mom lost the coin toss.

She headed on over to Wal-Mart to buy some groceries, probably to fix a nice meal to share with Dover, and Dover headed on over to Perv Land.

Figuring that it had been too long since he had gotten lucky, and seeing as how he was on a roll, what with getting out of the rain and all, and now a hot meal a’comin’, Dover tried to get lucky with the little lady.

Dover offered to pay the teen for “several sexual acts” that are being unspecified in local print media, but we can probably pretty well figure out what they were.

Like a proper young lady, she declined to perform those distasteful acts on his perverted old unclean self, choosing instead to use a cellphone to record his offers for posterity.

At this point, she was probably wondering when Mom was going to get back home. Not yet.

About the time Mom was squeezing the avocados to find a nice ripe one, Dover was deciding to do some squeezing of his own.

Having given up on winning the daughter’s favor, or even renting it, and being a do-it-yourself type guy, Dover pulled out the ol’ Skeezy Deezy and started flogging it like it owed him money.

Sources are unclear as to whether or not this particular part of his performance made it to video.

This is the point where I would expect the daughter to flee the house like a rat out of an aqueduct, but she apparently just waited until Mom finally got home with the groceries and then tattled.

Kids these days.

Deputies, when summoned, checked out Dover’s mixtape and were less than impressed with his showmanship.

Dover’s next performance will be at the York County jail, where he is being lodged without bond on a charge of attempting to commit a lewd act with a minor.

Nothing new to Dover, who is well-known to local authorities for drug offenses, disorderly conduct and violating a judges’ orders. Hell, it’s a step up for him: he’s out of the rain and he can spank it without fear of prosecution.

He might even get lucky.

As for the 13-year-old girl… well, not so good. Some things can never be unseen. And some things can never be gotten out of the carpet.

Thanks Mom!

Author’s Note:

I chose this article for a reason. After ending last week with the Jordyn Dumont article, I wanted to start this week off on a light note.

No one got hurt in this story. It could have turned out much, much worse.

THINK, people. Goddamn.

Open Thread August 6

I was reading another post #metoo redemption story. This one about will Al Franken run for something. I won’t link to it, but it is already becoming a genre. I believe in second chances, and that people can change. But it strikes me that in all of these there are a few related things missing.

There’s very little discussion, sometimes nothing at all, about how the person has changed. At best there’s repeat an apology and some vague reassurances that they understand that what they did was wrong.

The thing that I never see is any proactive steps taken to make sure that women are safe around them. Or at least less unsafe.

Parker RopeBoi in Seattle August 15-18!

We are welcoming back Parker RopeBoi for three rope bondage focused workshops. Friday’s Date Night Event features a rope and rough body play workshop that will flow into practice time. Parker will also be available for private lessons.

Parker RopeBoi is queer, genderqueer rope instructor and performer, who has an international reputation for innovative self-suspensions, highly dynamic suspensions, and quirky sadistic predicaments. Since 2009, Parker has been presenting rope workshops, intensives, and performances across North America and Europe. For Parker, rope is a versatile medium for enabling and disabling corporeal possibilities, encountering and overcoming impasses, instigating intense sensations and pleasures, and suspending bodies in space. Parker respects that everyone is different and that there are no one-size-fits-all ties. Parker strives to foster an inclusive, affirming environment for adults of all bodies, histories, and identifications to learn and enjoy rope. Parker lives in Brooklyn, New York City.

Thursday, August 16 — 7:00pm
Boot Play, Trampling, & Rope ~Educator: Parker Ropeboi
Gallery Erato: $35. Advance: $25 (Solo) $45 (Duo) $35 ( Solo & Pay It Forward Donor) $55 (Duo & Pay It Forward Donor)

Boots. Rope. Flesh. Are you someone who likes some boot marks among your rope marks? In this class, Parker RopeBoi will share some of their favorite sexy and sadistic tricks and tips for manipulating bodies using boots and rope for pleasure and pain. The class will demonstrate and discuss gauging and applying different kinds and amounts of pressure with boots to different body parts, which body parts can handle more or less boot pressure, and how different floor ties and partial/full suspension ties affect the intensity of boot pressure and require different kinds of trampling techniques. Demos aim to inspire you to bring your own style and ideas for integrating boots and rope in a scene. Participants will have time to try out some of these techniques and to explore playing with boots and rope in their own style.


Friday, August 17 — 8:00pm
Rope For Roughhousing: A Date Night Event with educator Parker Ropeboi.
Gallery Erato: $80. Advance: $65 (Duo) $80 (Duo & Pay It Forward Donor)

Grabbing someone, pushing them up against a wall, down to the floor or onto a bed, and otherwise manhandling them can be an exciting and erotic aspect of bdsm play. Rope can be useful tool for such asymmetrical rough body play, and can put the bottom at a clear physical disadvantage. This hands-on rope class teaches techniques for tying a person into a state of mobile immobilization–somewhat immobilized, yet still mobile enough to be moved around a room or rolled into different fun positions. Participants also will learn how to create handles and attachment points on otherwise slippery bodies. Participants will also view demonstrations of techniques for manhandling a tied-up bottom into different positions. These techniques are especially useful for situations in which the rope top (tying partner) is physically smaller than the rope bottom (person being tied), though everyone can benefit from the techniques taught in this class.


Saturday, August 18th — 11:00am
Twisted Transitions ~Educator: Parker Ropeboi
Gallery Erato: $90 (Duo). Advance: $75 (Duo) $90 (Duo & Pay It Forward Donor)

Torsion suspensions (suspensions in twisted body positions) offer exciting ways to expand your range of spatial-aesthetic options and sensory experiences in the air. Twisting your suspensions can create intense experiences and change up your suspension repertoire. In this workshop, we will address the physical components and body mechanics of torsion (torso twisting) in suspension. We will cover a variety of torsion suspension transitions, including particular suspension techniques and line management techniques for transitioning into and out of torsion positions. These topics are addressed from both bottoms’ and tops’ perspectives, with emphasis on choosing and adjusting transitions to work best for individual bodies.

Se the full list of all our upcoming workshops and events, including Parker’s, here.
