Mary Konye guilty of devastating acid attack on friend who called her 'ugly'

Mary Konye guilty of devastating acid attack on friend who called her 'ugly' | Crime and Criminals | Scoop.it
Twenty-one year-old attacked Naomi Oni while disguised in a Muslim veil

 

A young woman has been found guilty of throwing acid in the face of a friend while disguised in a Muslim veil.

 

Mary Konye, 21, attacked Naomi Oni, an assistant at a Victoria's Secret lingerie shop, on December 30 2012 because she once called her ugly.

 

During her trial, the jury at London's Snaresbrook Crown Court heard that, following the attack, Konye pretended to give Ms Oni a shoulder to cry on.

 

Ms Oni was left scarred for life after the incident in Dagenham, east London.

 

Dressed in black, Konye remained calm as the jury of eight men and four women returned their verdict.

 

Judge David Radford warned Konye that she will face jail when he sentences her on March 7 after receiving reports.

Lisamarie Kolster's curator insight, April 14, 10:08 AM

This article intrigued me because I have only seen this in movies, I never thought someone would throw acid on someone’s face until I read this story. I just thought it was so wrong that Mary Konye tried to act like she didn’t do anything, she disguised herself and then tried to console her after the fact of it all. I’m happy that she is getting jail time because this was planned, to get the acid know you’re going to dress up and also the fact that they were best friends since they were little and stopped talking. Mary was aware that Naomi had watched a documentary about a model that that had happened to, so she knew exactly how she felt and was going to feel after the fact. This was all because of a guy? This is a cold world we live in.

Man jailed for keeping 'slave'

Man jailed for keeping 'slave' | Crime and Criminals | Scoop.it
An ice cream business owner who kept a vulnerable man like a "slave" has been jailed for six-and-a-half years by a judge who said it was "staggering" this could happen in modern society.

 

David Rooke forced Craig Kinsella, 34, to live in a garage where he suffered regular beatings and ended up scavenging for food in bins, Sheffield Crown Court heard.

 

Rooke, 44, today admitted falsely imprisoning and attacking Mr Kinsella and was jailed along with his wife Donna, 40, and son Jamie, 19.

CCTV footage of various members of the Rooke family assaulting Mr Kinsella was shown to Judge Peter Kelson QC who said it was impossible to watch without wincing.

 

The judge said the family used Kinsella like a "punchbag" and treated him "like a dog".

 

"It's almost unbelievable," he said.

 

Judge Kelson told the Rookes: "His will had been completely broken by the way you treated him. You treated him like a dog."

 

He said: "Man's inhumanity to man never ceases to shock."

The judge said: "He was fed very little - fed by way of food left out. He was kept hungry. He was constantly beaten and battered.

 

"He was just your punchbag, all three of you. If you were in a bad mood you would just go and kick and punch Craig Kinsella.

 

"It is staggering that this is happening in our society, absolutely staggering. It is almost unbelievable."

 

Judge Kelson told David Rooke: "He was under your control.

"He was treated horrendously. He was treated like a dog. The conditions were grotesque and you were just exploiting him."

So, how does this article relate to sociological theories of deviance? It seems like today, the idea of treating an employee this way is very deviant. We can also think back to times in U.S. history where this would not be so deviant. So what does this tell us about harsh labor practices? Are they being defined up or down? Also, who are the agents of social control in this story?

I wrote a responce to this when i initally scooped it :/ guess it didnt post. Anywho. This sort of deviance is being defined UP! People have faught for years to bring this sort of this down but apprently some poeple just dont get it. "Mans inhumanity to man never ceases to shock." Thaty is all too true. The deeper we get into deviance and the more articals we post and read the less faith I have in humanity. There is always good in the world but lately it just seem like the bad is becoming worse.

Han Lei, 39, grabbed child from her pram, lifted her above his head and threw her to the ground

 

A man has been given the death penalty after he killed a two-year old girl by throwing her from a pram in a row about parking.

 

The girl died from her injuries after Han Lei, 39, grabbed her from her pram, lifted her above his head and threw her to the ground in China. He had been rowing with the girl’s mother after she refused to make way for his car.

 

However, Han claimed that the killing was unintentional and that he never realised there was a child inside the carriage. He said he was drunk and thought the pram was a shopping trolley.

 

The crime was committed within a year of the Beijing man being released from prison, after having a life sentences for larceny commuted.

Lisamarie Kolster's curator insight, April 14, 10:20 AM

Everything about this article is disturbing to me. I just don’t understand what is wrong with people, why sexually abuse anything? Let alone an animal. In the story it says he has more charges such as solicitation of a child, but only the animal abuse made it into the headlines. I don’t understand why that only one of his many charges was publicized, I think we should be more aware of the crimes people are being charged with. Someone could think he was charged with sexually abusing an animal and not now that he tried soliciting a child, I think we should be more aware of the people around us. I just can’t believe he would sexually abuse a peacock!

Jason's comment, April 15, 11:27 AM
She is at her job of employment and should know the rules behind being a prison guard. The charge should stand because as a guard you do have the upper hand on the prisoners so even if there was consent, the guard is to blame.
Kristy Gipson's comment, April 19, 1:51 PM
I think that this is a deviant act on her part. Why risk your own job and why declare yourself as deviant. Yes we as humans have our wants and desires but what could you possibly see or want in someone that is in prison, especially if they are in for along time. Then to open yourself up to the possibility of getting pregnant is totally absurd. She has labeled herself and this will follow her throughout jobs especially if she wants to continue in the prison field.
Faith Suazo's comment, April 21, 11:47 AM
This story reminds me of the show Orange is the New Black, a television show about a middle class woman who goes to prison. In the show there are several occurrences with one particular male guard who continuously has sexual relations with inmates in exchange for drugs or cigarettes. And another guard refrains from any sexual relations because it might hurt his career, until he falls in love with one inmate and gets her pregnant. The pregnancy puts her location and the guard's career in jeopardy. I don''t believe that in this case the female guard had much to gain from such a risky act. I think that her goal was pleasure, but instead she ended up with a child. It would be scary enough to be a guard, much less at a maximum security prison. There is a reason inmates are not allowed to have weapons, this female guard put her life at risk. This kind of behavior makes law enforcement officials look vulnerable.
