Posted on 03/25/2012 11:26:15 PM PDT by Vigilanteman
A high school girl repeatedly begged for mercy while she was being tortured by her companions who finally took her outside, forced her to strip and shot her in the back of the head so she couldn't tell authorities what happened, Allegheny County Police said Tuesday. Rodney Lee Burton, 21, of the 1500 block of Oak Street, North Braddock, and Brittany Williams, 19, of the 200 block of McCutcheon Lane, Penn Hills, were arrested on charges of criminal homicide for the shooting death early Sunday of Dana Marie Pliakas, 17, of Murrysville.
Services are scheduled this afternoon for Pliakas, a junior at Franklin Regional High School, whose body was found at the bottom of the concrete steps leading from Electric Avenue in North Braddock to the Route 30 viaduct.
County Police Superintendent Kenneth Fulton said Pliakas and a companion went to a party Saturday at Burton's home where partygoers drank rum and smoked marijuana before the abuse and torture began.
"Why are you doing this to me?" Pliakas repeatedly cried as Williams assaulted her with a leather belt, her fists and a plastic bottle containing laundry detergent, a witness told detectives according to an affidavit of probable cause.
Williams continued the assault while Pliakas begged for mercy, the unidentified witness told detectives, according to the affidavit.
Burton, who is accused of firing the fatal shot, told reporters yesterday that he didn't shoot anyone.

Does anybody remember Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson traveling to Pittsburgh and holding vigils or rallies?
If you didn't, maybe it was because the victim was white.
That’s horrific, barbaric. How long did the vermon get?
If the President had a seventeen year old daughter, she could look like that!
They look like pillars of the community alright.
Mentioned Dana yesterday. Truly evil. Found naked and shot in the back of the head at the bottom of the city steps.
But not MSM newsworthy.
Perp:Rodney Lee Burton, 21
Perp:Brittany Williams, 19
According to this, both life without parole:
These two murderous animals were convicted and given life in prison without parole. Why were these two murderers not executed?
Now society has to pay to house them the rest of their lives, providing them with room and board, free medical and dental, etc.
“If you didn’t, maybe it was because the victim was white.”
And whites are too busy watching Dancing with the Stars.
Which is why we get what we deserve.
I’m ready to roll are you?
Too bad it wasn't in Texas where they could have got the death penalty!
[And whites are too busy watching Dancing with the Stars.
Which is why we get what we deserve.]
I think it is the women who get all gaga over Dancing With The Stars, and men like NASCAR and sports.
I don’t watch either, spend too much time watching and reading news and then have to take breaks because it gets stressful - other than spreading the news, what can one woman do?
Woodfork looks like he could be Obama’s son.
If Obama had a son.
other than spreading the news, what can one woman do?
How often doe we spread the new?
Maybe once every three years?
We should all be posting these kinds of crime here daily.
I have posted the Durham Tire Store shooting 3x’s.
99.99% of Freepers could care less.
The biggest issue is : how pure is a candidate vs the Jesus ( aka Reagan test ).
We are getting what we have worked for and deserve.
Thank you!! Life w/o parole!
More like the pillars if islam..
They should have imposed the death penalty.
An elderly white couple was robbed and tortured, and the wife raped and beaten to death by a feral black gang just last week in Oklahoma.
What if they had been black and the perps white?
While the Zimmerman/Martin white on black killing is covered 24/7 on the MSM with an outpouring of rage and charges of a racial hate crime, where is the concern- where is the rage about the home invasion, torture, beating, rape and murder of the elderly white couple by a gang of feral blacks in Oklahoma just last week?
The 90 year old war veteran husband was beaten and his jaw broken. He was shot in the face numerous times with a BB gun and sent to the hospital in critical condition.
The 85 year old partially blind wife was RAPED and then BEATEN TO DEATH.
(She was most likely gang raped numerous times...but we will never know for sure)
Both the husband and wife were weak, having just gotten over the flu.
Theres a lot more involved here than a home invasion and robbery.
WHERE ARE THE CHARGES OF A RACIAL HATE CRIME??
90 year old husbands jaw broken and shot in face with a BB gun numerous times?
85 wife year old semi blind wife RAPED and BEATEN to death??
Where is the 24/7 MSM coverage?
Where is the outrage?
I posted we should march.
I live about 25mi. from the incident and will happily march.
The Eve Carson murder was another one brutal and senseless.
That couple’s story becomes more horrifying everyt time I read it. Feral animals is right. And they need to be put down.
BOW violence is now A-OK at the DO”J”
which once had equal justice,
but now is the home of Holder/Obama/terrorists/murderers
America is dying, and the DO”J” defends
murderers — when not giving them weapons.
I think not. America is just getting its better-late-than-never wake-up call.
Prezzadizzle Obunghole and his DO"N"J are about to face the justifiable, Constitution/Founding Document-prescribed, 2nd Amendment-treasuring public's delivered remedy for such tyrannic despotism.
Whether we vote him out next November, Impeach his sorry ass between now and then, or bodily throw him in prison under a Citizen's Arrest, it makes no differencejust as long as he and his stanky, skanky brood are no longer allowed to defile our Laws, our sensibilities, or our Executive Mansion.
This divisive, racist piece of human waste has overstayed his welcome.
One of the most gruesome murders ever and not a peep out of the race industry.
What is it you propose we deserve?
If you are inferring that we deserve to be assaulted by others at their whim then you need an attitude adjustment.
What we deserve is justice and all the benefits of our God given Rights regardless of what we spend our time doing.
Some of our Rights, not all, are listed in the Bill of Rights of our Constitution. Protect it! Support it! For everyone.
I assume you mean the White National MSM race industry.
No. I meant the black race industry. Like Sharpton, Jackson, all the "ministers" of black churches that preach hate, etc.
In addition, Burton (the trigger man) showed remorse while Williams did not, so the jury was convinced it was inappropriate to give the instigator a greater penalty than the trigger man. Such is nature of political correctness in America today . . . and seven years ago.
Nine years ago today, somebody's 17 year old daughter was brutally murdered. But nobody outside our local area will even know about it and most won't even remember her name. Simply because she was the wrong color.
You mentioned a name, “those people” actually had names?
You people are slowly learning that describing “not a hate crime” victims as “those people in NC” or “that couple in Oklahoma” doesn’t really do much to advance equal protection under the law.
that was a weird thing for O to say
I remember a similar case that took place in Indiana. Two kids in a town called Carmel (kind of a wealthy area north of Indianapolis) were tortured and murdered by several lowlifes who’d come there to sell the kids some weed. I forget why it turned violent, but the kids were subjected to an absolute nightmare before they were murdered. The ringleader, IIRC, was the son of the local Black Panther leader.
I remember this douchebag in one of my classes saying people were only upset because the victims were white. I seriously wanted to pound the clown into the dirt. As it was, I pointed out that at least one of the killers was a white guy, so his racial angle was as stupid as he was.
I'm ready to quit paying taxes, how bout you?
(Amazing it's still legal to ask, unless you're a card-carrying member of the purple peoplebeaters, the panthers, or the ROP.)
Actually, “if 0bama had a son” is epitomized by this clip from Judge Judy:
It rather shows the trouble he’s in for election.
He has to blatantly pander and stir up the whole race thing all over again, because he knows that’s exactly why he was elected in 2008.
AG Holder has endorsed the Panther’s crimes against whites with the tossing of the 2008 voter intimidation case.
Too bad only Fox news had any coverage of it.
Is this a hate crime? I guess that is what it called now when whites murder black so why isn’t this a hate crime in reverse?
where is jessse on this one?
A white Mississippi State student was murdered by three blacks yesterday in his dorm.
Where’s the vigil for him?
500 whites are murdered every year. Tens of thousands of white women are victims of sexual assault by blacks; ZERO black women are assaulted by white men statistically.
But “blacks are under attack”?
Zimmerman was Jewish/Hispanic. Was a Democrat!!
Pathetic attempt to use hate and fear to motivate blacks for Obama.
I just wonder, though, how much Obama will actually benefit from his on-going race hustle. Is he hoping to win over the 18 black people who DIDN’T vote for him in ‘08? Or the leftwing limo types who are already going to vote for him? To whom exactly is this crap directed, electorally speaking? Divide and conquer, perhaps, is the goal - keep the nation’s racial factions ripping at each other’s necks to divert attention from the real issues, namely, that Obama is a crude Stalinist clown who doesn’t have the chops to chair a county board, much less serve as president.
Now we have totally saturated our dear and often unknowing children to a liberal dosage of “one bad apple ruins the barrel” syndrome and wonder why generations subjected to massive liberalism are out of control, have no work ethic or common sense.
And the saddest part is that this was all done not for some Utopian wish for equality, but so the democrats could bond that ethic group to blindly vote for democrats for generations to come.
There are some black people that voted for him last time that are "underenthused" about getting out again. Partly, the novelty has worn off, primarily, he hasn't delivered "the big check" that they were expecting, and for some, the fact that whitey isn't in chains picking cotton is a big dissapointment.
And, there are the "white guilt" voters, not all of them lefty limolibs, just your run of the mill "gotta vote, it's my duty even though I'm uninformed" types whose "white guilt" has worn off.
And if I recall correctly, no “hate crime” charges ever brought.
Trayvon Martin and the Politics of Racial Guilt
Posted By Daniel Greenfield On March 26, 2012 @ 12:55 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 20 Comments
When at the beginning of March, Allen Coon, a thirteen-year-old boy, was set on fire by two black teenagers who told him, You get what you deserve, white boy, this did not prove to be an occasion for national soul-searching. But the shooting death of Trayvon Martin by a Hispanic neighborhood watch captain after a scuffle between the two men has led to hysterical media coverage, state and federal investigations, civil rights marches, lynching threats from the Black Panthers and a statement from Obama urging Americans to search their souls for some unspecified reason.
The latter took time out from the trivial business of nominating a World Bank president to interfere in a local law enforcement matter and join his good friend Al Sharpton, who specializes in racist rhetoric, in throwing some racebaiting gasoline on the flames.
