I don’t get it. I truly believe you kill someone at the VERY least you go to prison W/O the possibility of parole if not the death penalty. This is just sickening and could have been avoided.

A convicted killer recently released from prison was charged Saturday with fatally shooting his brother during an argument and then killing five witnesses, including two of his brother's children, police said. Three remaining children were critically wounded in the attack last Sunday, but one of them was able to tell investigators about their assailant, an arrest warrant affidavit said. Jessie L. Dotson, 33, was arrested on Friday — five days after the six bodies were discovered in a small rental house in a rough neighborhood called Binghampton. The affidavit said Dotson admitted to the killings. "He tried to kill everyone in the house. He thought everyone in the house was dead," police Lt. Joe Scott said. Dotson was charged with six counts of first-degree murder and three counts of attempted first-degree murder, police said. Among those killed was Dotson's brother, Cecil, 30, who was the father of all the children, ages 9 to 2 months. Also killed were Hollis Seals, 33, Shindri Roberson, 25, and Marissa Rene Williams, 26, the mother of four of Cecil Dotson's children. Police identified the dead children as Cemario Dotson, 4, and Cecil Dotson, 2. The surviving children remain under police custody at a children's hospital, but police declined to reveal their identities or their conditions. One of the children "implicated Jessie Dotson as the person responsible," an arrest warrant affidavit said. Police said the bodies of the victims were discovered Monday. The adults were shot with a semiautomatic handgun, while the children were stabbed with a knife or bludgeoned, police said. <THE 14 font set.< been had dates court No him. for listed was lawyer no and visitors allowed yet not Dotson showed records Jail penalty. death the seek will it if decided has office his said Gibbons Bill General Attorney District available. were details other January. in prison from released He prison. years spent 1994 murder second-degree to guilty pleaded Jessie that show also Records said.

One of the children "implicated Jessie Dotson as the person responsible," an arrest warrant affidavit said. Police said the bodies of the victims were discovered Monday. The adults were shot with a semiautomatic handgun, while the children were stabbed with a knife or bludgeoned, police said. <The adults were found in the living room and the children were found in the two bedrooms of the residence and in the bathroom, Police Director Larry Godwin said. Police said the bodies were discovered after relatives were unable to make contact with them, either by phone or in person. Cecil Dotson and Seals each had extensive criminal records that include possession of illegal drugs and firearms. Cecil Dotson is identified in jail records as a known gang member. Godwin said investigators at first thought the killings might have been some kind of "gang-related retaliation." "I know the fear that gripped this community. I think we all felt it," Godwin said. Records also show that Jessie Dotson pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in 1994 and spent 14 years in prison. He was released from prison in January. No other details were available. District Attorney General Bill Gibbons said his office has not yet decided if it will seek the death penalty. Jail records showed Dotson was not yet allowed visitors and no lawyer was listed for him. No court dates had been set.

Memphrica has got some of the scariest idividuals in the world.

If you are on Beale st., and you go to far, look around you. If you have past Main st, RUN back in the direction you came. I know people who never returned.

Totally agree, our judicial system is completely f#cked up. Anyone convicted of murder should never see the light of day again.

I would love to see it addressed by the presidential candidates, but they are too busy arguing about who has the most experience. :shake:

Does that mean Carl can't try to sign him to replace Ty Law?

Having lived there 18 years totally agree. Stay out of Hurt Village. (that's the real name of the neighborhood).


As far as why this guy was released, we don't know any of the facts of the original case. The guy might have pled guilty in exchange for a sentencing recommendation so he could see the light of day again. The prosecutor might have agreed to it because their case was not likely to win in front of a jury (maybe the CSI effect, not enough forensic evidence to satisfy TV viewers) and he wanted the guy to serve ten years rather than 0. I don't know but that's possible. Obviously if they had a Minority Report-style crystal ball, they wouldn't have agreed to it.

our justice system is f*cking bullshit. I bet the first time around he got a lesser sentence than a convicted online poker player in some states, or a 17 yr old boy who gets a hummer from a 16 yr old girl. Give me one reason why this f*cker deserves to live? he better get the death penalty. I don't think us tax payers should have to pay for him to be alive.
