Capital Punishment – Big Earls

Capital Punishment – Big Earls

The National Parole Board is set to once again review whether Ennis, who was known as David Shearing in 1982 when he killed six members of the Johnson Bentley families, is fit for release.

The last time around the board said Ennis still had violent sexual fantasies, hadn’t completed sex offender treatment and was not ready for freedom. This September, if the hearing goes through, Arishenkoff doesn’t expect a significantly different response, but she’s not leaving anything to chance.

“Stranger things have happened when it comes to the justice system in this country,” she said.

The simple fact that relatives of a family murdered in one of the country’s most infamous mass killings have gone to the parole board repeatedly and revisited their most painful memories, she said, highlights another flaw in the system.

“It’s a constant re-victimization. We haven’t had time to breathe. Two years have flown by,” she said.

Big Earls

After eating breakfast at Big Earl’s Bait House and Country Store, Collin Dewberry and his partner Kelley Williams were told by their server that they were not welcome to come back, KTLV-7 reported on Tuesday. She cited a three-year-old company policy — printed on a sign at the door — that the establishment reserves “the right to refuse service to anyone,” prohibits “baggy pants,” and requires that “men act like men and women act like ladies.”

The server’s father, owner Earl Cheney (“Big Earl”), told a local reporter that while “homosexuality, Blacks, [and] Hispanics” were all welcome to eat at his restaurant, it was the duo’s public display of affection that lead to their banishment. “A man’s supposed to stand up and be a leader. He’s not supposed to be a woman. He’s not supposed to come in here in a dress,” he explained. The couple denied the Cheney’s claim that they had been rubbing legs and Cheney refused to show the reporter the surveillance video. Cheney’s admitted his daughter told the couple the restaurant does not “like fags.”

Numerous Facebook users took to the company’s page to express their outrage at the restaurant’s policy of discrimination. However, the restaurant countered: “numerous phone calls received tonight from people that feel the same way we do has been outstanding. We have new customers due to the news story, and will continue to feel the same way.” On Wednesday, Big Earl’s posted:

My goodness, does anyone read or study? Big Earl has spent his life in the military to defend this country and will be happy to explain the constitution to you. Earl is well versed in the Bible and Christianity, has travelled the world and is well educated. It would have been nice for the full interview to have played in order to explain the background to what caused the incidence. The quote “we don’t serve fags here” was never said, instead, after being badgered, the young lady said “We do not like fags”. The behavior portrayed by the young couple was simply inappropriate and would have been considered so no matter what sexual orientation.
