On more strike against the justice system…

…right here:

Another man must serve the rest of his life in prison for killing a Houston woman who was staying at a Bossier City motel in 2005.
Dwight Keith Bacon, 25, of Shreveport, pleaded guilty Monday to a charge of second-degree murder, which carries a mandatory life sentence, according to the Caddo district attorney’s office.

Tosha Lampkin, 30, was staying at David Motel while she and cousin Tonya Douglas were visiting family.
Lampkin was carjacked from the parking lot when she left the room to get something to eat about 3 a.m. April 22, 2005.
Douglas received a call about two hours later informing her their rental car had been found in Shreveport.
It had been torched and there was a body in the trunk.
Authorities said Lampkin had been raped and was alive in the trunk when the car was torched.

Bacon, who never before had been arrested, is the second man to be sentenced to life in connection with Lampkin’s death.
Brandon Davis, 25, of Bossier City, was convicted of first-degree murder in April 2008.
He raped and killed Lampkin less than two months after completing a five-year sentence for robbing and intimidating a 75-year-old woman.


Wow, five years for robbing and intimidating a 75-year-old woman. I don’t know how there could have been any doubt that punk would have been escalating his campaign of violence toward younger and stronger members of the population sooner or later. And I know the death penalty might well not be appropriate for robbery, but why could this guy not have been locked up longer than he was? Why is it that we let these people walk free in society when they’re so obviously untrustworthy? And why do anti-gunners not have a problem with this? Why don’t they demand gasoline and lighter/match licensing and registration too? And WHY would they want to make it so hard for people like the late Tonya Lampkin and this old woman to defend themselves? The lack of a gun certainly didn’t hinder Ms. Lampkin’s killers, eh?

      I just watched Stolen Voices, Buried Secrets and I must say I was totally appalled during the entire show. The nerve of people to rob your beautiful cousin of her life. You spoke highly of your cousin and my heart goes out to you and your entire family. God Bless!

    • Alisha Says:

      Thank the lord above,There were working camras to help crack this case open. The man she was in a brief relationship with was not the suspect very long. To think these cowards almost got away with doing this crime. Working Camras really need to be everywhere. Sorry for your loss.

      I just saw the opening to your cousin’s murder on the ID channel. I can’t watch anymore. The pain in Tanya’s voice brought me to tears. I watch tons of shows about murder and am normally not affected so profoundly. Please accept my condolences on the loss of your absolutely beautiful cousin. Tanya, I cannot imagine what you’re feeling, but I can empathize with losing a cousin who’s also your best friend. I lost mine 10 years ago. May God give your family the strength to continue to do the good deeds that you say Tosha exemplified. May her two murderers rot in hell and be subjected to the same, no, worse torture on a daily basis. And to her mom Betty, your strength is a source of inspiration to all. The world thanks you for the gift of your daughter. May God continue to watch over you and the rest of the Lampkin and Douglas family. God speed!

      kashuna i am so sorry for this disgraceful act against your cousin (Tosha) nothing will ever be the same again..my little cousin who i was raised with was murdered by my aunts boyfriend and he only received 5-7 yrs he was choked and beaten, at only three months old!!! you know why he said he did this to him, because he was crying..there is no justice for under- priviliged people. an i mean anyone who is not considered a millionaire. I hope they rot in hell. there mothers should not be able to see them, hold them or tell them they love them. they have a chance to ask GOD for forgiveness. this is is unfair. I continue to hurt all victims who can not have the justice they want. I chose to return back to school for Psychology. I have the need to help people, funny that most of my co-workers and classmates say I should go to law school. I make a good arguement and I defend people who cannot defend themselves.

    Kashuna I just watched a program that profiled Your cousin’s murder……that was so senseless and evil. Angola is the right place for those 2 demons. Just straight up evil! My prayers are with you and Tosha’s family.

  4. Lisa Says:

    I agree…just so senseless and sad. What a sad ending to such a beautiful woman. My prayers are with you and your family.

  5. sylvia Says:

    May god’s grace, love and mercy cover this entire family. I declare and decree divine favor for tosha’s son.

  6. Harold Smither Says:

    I saw the program about Tosha Marie Lampkin; God has a reason for everything. Tosha is truly in a better place. Tosha and I were the same age, born exactly eight months apart, same day 25th. The one thing that truly got me was that not only did she and I share a year of birth; In the same month and year (April 2005), six days after her passing, I myself was shot and nearly died after being attacked by a young man 25 years old. In seeing Tosha’s story, she reinvigorated my purpose in life. And truly brought to focus that second chances are gifts, not promised.
    Though I know she is gone, the reason for the shine on her story is not only because of the beautiful person she obviously was (and is), but to make us all aware of how precious life is and that we must live it to the fullest, because we do not know when he will call us home.
    To her son, do not let the loss of your mother ruin your life. Make it the reason for the song in your heart, the stride in your step, the joy for the purpose of living. That is what your mother desires for you. You do her memory a disservice in languishing in the misery that the evil perpetrated on her left on your heart. Fear not, let go and let Jehovah God do his work, his will be done!

    Amen.

    P.S.

    I knew when I saw you two ladies (Tonya and Mom) standing at her graveside, that I had been there too…Houston Memorial Gardens, my mother is buried there not far from Tosha. Just a few degrees of separation….
