    I think matches should be banned and the company that made the gun which I am sure this gun is an approved gun! Should be sued out of business!

    As 94c said, there are very few truly innocent victims of crimes like this.

    The quote is correctly attributed to Oscar Wilde. Truer words have never been spoken, especially when it comes to MC.com. Remember 94see, when you point a finger at someone, 3 more point back at you.

    Don't you hate it when your old words come back to haunt you? I give you credit, you stood behind them, right or WRONG they may be.

    It wouldn't suprise me, since he's up to murder at 13.

    Not that it matters a whole lot, but which half are these two boys brothers from? Anyone know?

    No I don't hate it so don't put words in my mouth. You're not that important.

    Care to clarify this? You agree that if you live by sword you die by the sword and then go on to criticize me for pointing a finger at someone.

    Help me out here...

    So I point a finger at a 16 year old drug dealer who gets killed for having $10,000 in his pocket, where his 13 year old brother is involved, and this is what you defend?

    If you really are a housing cop in Boston then you must be one of those guys that get easily paid off to look the other way since that is what you would cowardly do to begin with.

    Just like, God rest his soul, Moe the park cop that used to buy us booze for a couple of bucks (when we weren't old enough to drink...)

    I guess reading comprehension isn't your strong suit, is it? I only chose to let you know that when you point fingers at others on this board, 3 more point back at you. You've stated that you added me to the list of Deputy Sheriffs that you'd drive by while having a problem or fight with a prisoner. Well, I find myself in good company since I would not want, need, or accept the help of an ignorant window licking @$$hole such as yourself.

    To state in an open forum that I would trade my badge for money is an insult, but coming from you I see it as one of your many assinine statements you've made over the past few years. Just add one to the growing list of buffoonery you chose to spew.

    Moe the Park Cop had more scruples than you'll ever have.

    Koz, I can't let this one slide. His drivel has reached new heights. Now 94see, go back & re-read the thread, take a Geritol & take your nap. Bingo is in the Rec Room at 7PM.

    Cape Cod boy, 13, accused of killing rival brother

    [​IMG]
    STEPHAN SAVOIA/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Paula Carberry holds a scrapbook remembrance to her son Jordan Mendes, 16, recently. Mendes' smoldering body was found by Carberry on Dec. 16 after he had been shot, stabbed and set on fire.

    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


    BARNSTABLE — Like most boys, 13-year-old Mykel Mendes looked up to his big brother, Jordan. The two rode bikes together, did yard work together and hung out together. But when it came to the family business — a major drug ring — Mykel did not want to share, police say.
    Mykel, a seventh grader, is now accused of masterminding the slaying of his 16-year-old half-brother so he could take over the drug operation — one police say they inherited from their father, who is in prison for running one of the biggest cocaine rings on Cape Cod.
    Jordan was found shot, stabbed 27 times and dumped into a pit, where his body was torched. Another 13-year-old friend and a 20-year-old cousin also are charged with murder.
    The killing has shaken the normal quiet of winter on Cape Cod, the summer tourist destination known for its beautiful beaches, salt water taffy and famous residents. Jordan Mendes lived just a few miles from the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port.
    "It's very disturbing," said Debra Dagwan, a Hyannis resident and member of the local school board. "It indicates what drugs can do to people, whether they are involved with drugs or selling them. It's a dangerous life, no matter how you look at it."
    Mykel's lawyer, John Cunha, dismissed claims by authorities that Mykel planned his brother's death to take over his drug business.
    "He loved his brother," Cunha said. "He's not the 13-year-old Al Capone."
    The boys' father, Manuel Mendes, 33, ran a drug ring that brought large quantities of cocaine to the Cape from New York and Boston. Jordan was 8 and Mykel just 5 when he was arrested and sent to prison to serve eight to 10 years. Two years later, in 2002, authorities caught him running the drug business from behind bars. That time, he was sentenced to 35 years on federal drug trafficking charges.
    Authorities say Jordan took over where his father left off, selling OxyContin and cocaine. District Attorney Michael O'Keefe said Jordan was a "significant drug dealer."
    Mykel, according to authorities, was jealous of the money Jordan was making and wanted to take over.
    Over two days in December, police say Mykel, his 20-year-old cousin, Robert Vacher, and 13-year-old Kevin Ribeiro stole $10,000 in cash from Jordan, killed him, poured gasoline on his body and set him on fire.
    The three walked into a car dealership, pulled the $10,000 out of their pockets and bought a used silver BMW, O'Keefe said.
    Lawyers for all three youths deny they took part in the slaying.
    "To actually kill somebody to obtain money to buy a used car, which they have no license for and won't be able to get a license for almost four years — that's not the way 13-year-olds think," said William Gens, Ribeiro's lawyer.
    Mykel, who has a different mother, did not grow up in the same house as Jordan. But after Mykel moved to the Cape with his mother, the boys became inseparable, according to family members and friends.
    "Jordan was very close to Mykel. He took care of him, looked out for him. He loved him," said Jordan's mother, Paula Carberry.
    Barnstable police Det. Lt. Sean Balcom remembers Jordan showing a tough exterior when a dozen police officers stormed his grandmother's house to arrest his father in 2000.
    "I can remember him staring down some of the SWAT team members, saying we'd better not mess up his room," Balcom said. "He was standing right up to us."
    After his father was sent to prison, Jordan — named after basketball star Michael Jordan — became "the little man in the house," Carberry said.
    Two years later, his father's brother, Danuel Mendes — also an alleged drug dealer — was killed. Carberry said losing his father and uncle was tough on Jordan.
    "He was hurt," she said. "I think he would get angry because there wasn't anything he could do."
    Carberry denies Jordan was involved in drugs and says he had recently begun to turn his life around after some minor scrapes with the law, including arrests for marijuana possession and trespassing. His mother said his grades in school had recently improved and he had talked with an ex-girlfriend about moving to Florida after finishing high school to open a clothing store.
    When Jordan did not come home from school Dec. 15, Carberry and other family members went out to look for him. The next day, they found his body — still burning — in an 8-by-10-foot pit in woods less than a mile from Carberry's home.
    Ribeiro's chilling account of the slaying is outlined in a one-page police report.
    As Jordan walked down the basement stairs of Mykel's house, Vacher shot him, then stabbed him repeatedly in the neck, Ribeiro told police.
    Ribeiro said he and Vacher then rolled Mendes' body in a rug and took it to the pit. The next day, he said, they brought a container of gasoline and set Mendes' body on fire, according to the police report.
    The two boys are now in the custody of the state Department of Youth Services. Because of their age, they cannot be tried as adults for murder. If convicted, the teens would remain in state custody until they reach 18. Vacher was being held without bail on charges of robbery and first-degree murder.
    Carberry said she always thought Mykel was jealous of Jordan, but cannot understand how he could do what he is accused of doing.
    "What ever happened to my brother's keeper?" she said.
    "You were supposed to be my brother's keeper, and he was yours."

    Vacher convicted of Mendes killing

    BARNSTABLE - Barnstable Superior Court jury this afternoon convicted Robert Vacher of first-degree murder in the 2008 killing of Jordan Mendes - and he was sentenced to life in prison.
    The jury concluded that Vacher, 22, killed the 16-year-old Barnstable High School student. Mendes' body was discovered shot, stabbed 27 times and burning in a pit off Jennifer Lane in Hyannis in December 2008.
    Following the verdicts, Vacher was later sentenced to life without parole.
