The Newark massacre: New details of the heinous crime…and how to contact your state attorney general to help stop the criminal alien revolving door

Update: Near the site of 3 killings, a couple can only ask why

Local NY/NJ media outlets reported chilling new details about the attack by criminal aliens on young Newark students Iofemi Hightower, Doshen Harvey, Terrance Aeriel, and Natasha Aeriel. From today’s NYPost:

The thugs who shot four college students in Newark reportedly preceded their sick attack by trying to sexually assault their two female victims.

The group of six assailants – who shot two men and a woman dead and wounded another woman – failed in their attempt at a sexual attack, and then decided to kill their victims, according to 1010 WINS radio.

Six suspects have now been charged in the Aug. 4 atrocity, in which the victims were blasted execution-style.

Yesterday, a family member of one of the slain victims, Iofemi Hightower, described the level of savagery of the attack. He said the thugs used a machete to hack their victims.

“They cut my niece’s face off,” said John McClain, who is Hightower’s great-uncle, and the chaplain of the Newark Police Department. “They cut her from cheek to cheek. They left her head hanging.”

McClain said the mortician told him he had to work for three days to put his grand-niece’s face back together.

“Most people couldn’t tell, when he was done, but the family could tell,” he said.

If this monstrous evil doesn’t motivate you to get off your duff and do something to stop the criminal alien revolving door in your neighborhood, I don’t know what will.

Here’s a transcript I typed up of a radio report aired yesterday on 1010WINS by Steve Sandberg (hat tip – James):

Sources tell 1010WINS three of the college kids were being held at gunpoint as their attackers went after the fourth. With every breath, the young woman bravely fought off a sexual assault, so much so the assailant gave up and shot her [survivor Natasha Ariel] in the head.

Sources say they moved in on the other woman, pulling a machete, slashing and marking up her face and forehead, sexually assaulting her [Iofemi Hightower].

Defensive wounds on her arms and hands show how valiantly she resisted. In the end, she and her two friends were forced to kneel before a wall, face first, all three executed with bullets to the back of their heads.

Law enforcement sources familiar with gangs say this vicious attack has MS-13 written all over it, similar in its brutality to massacres they’ve committed throughout Latin America. Once convinced this was a robbery gone bad, officials have since conceded several of the suspects have MS-13 affiliations and are now, say sources, giving gang motivations strong consideration.

Other local media have also heard more from sources about the MS-13 angle and the sexual assaults and knife attacks on both female victims. WABC-7:

Even while Rodolfo Godinez waits in protective custody for an extradition hearing, a source tells Eyewitness News that the evidence appears to be growing that he is an MS-13 gang leader who ordered the murderers of the three college students.

Some who knew the suspects say they were destined for trouble. “They’d just mess with anybody,” an acquaintance of the suspects said. “They don’t care if they’re Spanish, black, white, they’d mess with anybody. They don’t care who it is.”

In addition, a source tells Eyewitness News that there are more troublesome details about the murders of Iofemi Hightower, Doshen Harvey and Terrance Aeriel, and the attempted murder of Natasha Aeriel. It appears that the women were also the victims of sexual attacks.

Authorities believe at least one was groped, which apparently escalated the tension and led to a knife attack and, finally, the executions.

There have been references over the last week to possible machete use in previous stories about this case, but it is worth underscoring what Sandberg’s sources told him given the stubborn denial by some officials to acknowledge the criminal alien gang imprint head on:

“…this vicious attack has MS-13 written all over it.”

Over the past several years, I’ve written before about MS-13 machete attacks in northern Virginia (more here and here and here and here. Last month, a convicted MS-13 gang member in the DC area who had served 18 months for gang stabbings was convicted again after being stopped with machetes on the way to another gang battle. In December 2004, I blogged:

“I think this El Salvador-based gang’s ascendance was one of the underreported stories of the year. I predict you’ll be seeing and hearing a lot more of this savage criminal enterprise in the year to come–and not just because of its suspected ties to al Qaeda. The gang has spread across the country–not just in major metropolitan areas, but in suburbs like my own backyard. Machete-wielding members have also settled in North Carolina, Nassau County, NY, and Boston. And if you think MS-13 members are only a threat to each other, think again.”

To rid our cities of this evil scourge, mayors and governors and law enforcers must acknowledge their role in allowing it to fester.The NJ state attorney general took a step in the right direction in ordering all NJ law enforcers to notify federal immigration officials whenever someone arrested for an indictable offense or drunken driving is found to be an illegal immigrant. The toll of sanctuary cities has been too high, but belated action to stop the bloody madness is better than no action at all.

Now, it is time for every state attorney general across the country to do as NJ State Attorney General Anne Milgram has done. Contact yours now and let me know the responses you get. We’ll be keeping track at DeportThemNow.com:
