Grieve the loss and move on? WHAT? This was the day after his wife's funeral? Geez

Indy dweller. said...

Something I cannot get over is the unlocked door. I feel like he's portrayed the neighborhood as safe. I lived two streets away from them. We had robbers get taken down by IPD in my backyard that had come from his neighborhood just the month before. We had transient people knocking on our doors everyday. Straight up unsafe. To leave your pregnant wife and little boy at home, without locking the door and not showing any remorse for that, disturbs me. And almost justifying it as "we lived in a safe neighborhood " is crazy! The IPD knows we have had trouble in our area. Gun shots, murders, robberies, etc. They lived next to an apartment complex that is so bad. People from that complex easily have the ability to walk right into their neighborhood. I feel deep down, Davey is a killer. Another thing. Months later my sister was visiting The Park at Traders point Christian Church, where Davey spent quite a bit of time chatting it up with the skinny single blonde mom's. With his son, nowhere insight. It's just disturbing.

Interesting Indy Dweller. I have always been interested to hear from a local. I have been quite surprised that more stories like you just described have not come to the surface. He has never shown any kind of remorse for leaving the door unlocked. How do those in the area feel about Crazy Davey?

OT:

Sarah Dunsey was not a sex trafficking victim: Police

Explosive report claims teen left Las Vegas willingly, family waited weeks to report her missing

The teenage girl whose family claimed she was a victim of sex trafficking may have gone willingly with her so-called abductors, according to new information first reported by Daily Mail and confirmed to Crime Online by a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department source.

“We were told by [Sarah Dunsey’s] mother that she was a victim of sex trafficking,” said Danny Cordero of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. “We did not find any evidence to substantiate that claim.”

http://www.crimeonline.com/2017/02/22/sarah-dunsey-cant-remember-what-happened-to-her-says-stepdad/

According to the Daily Mail, the LVMPD was not notified about Sarah Dunsey’s missing person status until January 30, two weeks after she was believed to have been last seen there.

Dunsey’s mother Amie Ellis was featured in a emotional, artful video appealing for her daughter’s return that went viral earlier this month.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/video/news/video-1416059/Family-Sarah-Dunsey-share-emotional-plea-safe-return.html


“Our daughter Sarah Dunsey was abducted from Las Vegas, Nevada; she’s being held against her will and Sarah is a victim of sex trafficking,” Sarah’s mother says in the video.

According to the Daily Mail, Sarah was found in Venice, California, on Friday, and was reunited with her family over the weekend after a brief hospital stay in Los Angeles.

But the circumstances of her alleged kidnapping have come into question.

Michael Rodriguez of the LVMPD told the Daily Mail that there was no evidence to support a claim that she was kidnapped in Las Vegas.

There was no kidnap. She was not kidnapped in Las Vegas and as far as we are concerned, there is no evidence that any crime has occurred.

Just because someone claims they were kidnapped, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s true. We did not find that she was [kidnapped], although it still could be true.
Captain Curtis Hooley of the Logan Police Department in Utah told the Daily Mail that Sarah was meant to return to Logan, Utah, where her father lived, on January 3, after visiting with her mother in St. George, Utah.

“It is unclear why Sarah’s parents did not discuss her whereabouts between January 3 and January 16,” Hooley told Daily Mail.

Captain Hooley said that he spoke to a friend of Sarah’s who saw her leaving the casino at the MGM Grand, not appearing to be in distress:

“She left with a couple of other males. She did not appear to be struggling. She didn’t seem unwilling at all.”

Sarah Dunsey was reported missing on January 16, and it does not appear that her mother was involved in the filing of the report.

From the Daily Mail:

Dailymail.com has also learned that a missing persons report was filed to police the day after the teenager’s alleged kidnapping not by her mother in St. George, as it was believed, but in Logan, where Sarah lives with her father Michael, 40, and his wife Terri, 39.
In an earlier interview with Daily Mail, Sarah’s stepfather pushed back against skeptics who suggested she may have left on her own volition.

“People have said things like, ‘she was a runaway, she meant to leave [Las Vegas]’. She didn’t. She was just in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Todd Ellis said.

This is a developing story. It will be updated as more information becomes available.

I find this case to be the most challenging regarding separating language from emotion. It's difficult.

Amyl Nitrite said...

I believe he is a narcissist and as bad as they come too. I don't think he was happy in his marriage and even think he desired her to just "disappear". I think he spent many long hours dreaming about what his life would be like as a single man again, and he desired her dead. I think he had strong desires about that. I think he had a depraved indifference toward his wife and son and that would be why he wouldn't lock the door to his house. In his mind I think that he was hoping someone would come in and kill her/them. If you don't care for something, you're not going to take good care of it, I think this was his case. His private conversations in the car were probably sexual in nature. He was hot, sweaty and just got out of the gym. I think he and his friend were engaged in hot and heavy phone sex. Doing that in the car would make it safer for him as his wife wouldn't catch him. The gym isn't an ideal place for polishing the bishop, while you are on the phone with your lover and neither is your home, so you are left for sitting in front of your house in your car--that also eliminates getting busted in a public parking lot while you engage in seedy behavior that can land you in serious trouble, not to mention lose your good standing with the church. I'd say he is extra careful about these extra curricular activities. When he arrived home and saw what had happened, he must have been shocked, but "relieved" to see that his prayers had been answered, and as a result demonstrates guilty knowledge through his language. He will most definitely be forgiving towards the killers as they did him the favor they don't know they did. This is just my conjectured based on his behavior and it would explain all the coincidences away.

Indy dweller. said...

Most people I talk with feel he's guilty. Very few actually believe it was random.

Another thing, our two neighborhoods were very connected. There's no way they didn't KNOW about the crime. His neighborhood actually alerted mine. His neighborhood was actually hit several times by robbers, where ours never really had a problem until that day. It was literally about a month earlier when the robbers were arrested in my yard. I've been following this because I've seen Amanda in my neighborhood walking her little boy in a stroller with their dog off leash. I want to know, where was the dog during this? There's no way a dog, as sweet as they can be, let someone hurt their owner. She was a big dog too! I'm so disturbed by this whole thing. We moved a few months later and I was so thankful it didn't affect our resale or ability to sell our home.

Indy dweller. said...

Another thing that comes to mind, he worked out in an area also not safe. Those who hang outside of the gym look to be drug dealers and criminals. It doesn't surprise me that he could've befriended someone within a gang.

lynda said...

One thing that was always so glaringly obvious to me that nobody seemed to mention...

They walked right in.

They went right up to the front door, 3 black men, and walked right in. They have them on video I believe, yes? On Davey's front porch? They didn't knock, they didn't "home invade" as in kicking in the door or breaking the lock, they just walked up the sidewalk and walked right in. The other house 2 doors down, they went in thru the back

They KNEW the door was unlocked. They knew because Davey (or I believe Alonzo bull) told them it was unlocked.

Davey had ties with Taylor..they were friends on FB, until the murder. Then they weren't.

Davey set up Amanda to be murdered. He put the dog away. He shut the baby's door. He left the door unlocked. He waited in the driveway to give her enough time to get cold (but she didn't) upon finding her still breathing, he waited a few minutes to call, when he called, he downplayed her injuries so no medical help was called. Medical help was delayed another 20 minutes.

Just that, just what I mentioned above is enough to show that Davey was the mastermind. How her family can't see that is beyond me. How the police can't see that is beyond me. No balls in the Indy prosecutors office cuz they "got their men, it was a bonus that they were black gangbangers.

davey is one sick, evil puppy. For all intents and purposes, he got away with it. I think Amanda's family loved her but I have no respect for them that they continue to not call out Davey and take a stand for her.

Bobcat said...

The cognitive dissonance that the women endure is tragic. They submit and support their husbands, period. As long as the image of perfect pastor's family is held up on the outside, god only knows what is swept under the rug on the inside.

Image is everything. Questions are quashed. Doubts are smothered by narcissistic wolves in sheep's clothing who use tyrannical psychological tools to uphold their position of "Pastor".

It is generational on both sides of the family.

Indy dweller. said...

I think her parents and family, can't even put their minds in a place where their grandson's father killed their daughter. Also, if they were to turn on Davey, they'd never seen Weston again and he is apart of Amanda. They'd never let that little boy go. I agree with everything you've said though! I do wonder where the dog was. He said in a later interview he called his dad after he called 911 and he said I think there's something wrong with the baby. Uh?! She had a gun shot wound to the head. The bullet came out the front, the killer said he watched the blood come out her forehead. Davey is so crazy.

I still believe Davey's language indicates HE delivered at least the first shot.

"bowed by the bed in posture of surrender"

Davey says "Are you OK?"

Immediately previous to this, his language indicates he was (for unknown reasons) "stalking" her location in the house

Telegraphing of missing tooth: He knocked out that tooth.

I think he had a gun and was pursuing her, and at the point he finds her "bowed in posture of surrender", she was trying to hide from him, cowering in fear.

______________________________

I get the Weston part. I really do. But when you're dealing with a monster like Davey, I am a firm believer in you have to get down into the dirt. They are fighting for a CHILD now. The gloves are off.

If Amanda's father came out, her mother, sister...and started a "campaign", the tides would turn so fast against Davey it would make his head spin. Amanda's father is much more powerful in the "church" world than Davey. Davey has his ragtag bunch of minions whereas her father has FOLLOWERS. If her father went on GMA and voiced suspicions, or started to call LE, prosecutors, GOVERNOR, Davey would very quickly see that his big new house and "book deal" would vanish. Davey sympathy would be at minumum, a whisper, compared to the outrage.

Her father knows on some level that to come out in righteous anger towards a man he believes had something to do with his daughter's death does not conflict with scripture. He could do it. The argument about Weston doesn't wash. There are laws in place that guarantee a grandparents rights. Indiana has those laws. They would get visitation solely because Amanda is dead.

He should take a page out of Colette MacDonald's dads playbook.

Yes. Probable cause affidavit. Second document on this page. Last page(page 25).
Quoted as saying he leaned over her and shot her. Leaned further to look at her face and watch her bleed.

Indy dweller. said...

I completely agree! The donations went right to his church to help him. No one even knows how much he received from random donators, churches who took up collections on his behalf, the mega church headed by Perry Noble. I'd love to see how much he's profited. I'm with you, if it was my daughter, I'd find a way to nail him to the cross! I loved the segment Peter did. I wish I had known about it earlier because I would've called in.

If I were one of Amanda's parents, I would be afraid that if I went to the police, Davey would kill Weston. If he were going down for Amanda's murder, he might feel as though he had nothing to lose.

I hear you, lynda. It seems so unbelievable. I bolded your comment because in the Affidavit of Probable Cause, if the CI is to be believed (and that's always an "if"), none of them just walked in. Larry Taylor walked in and out repeatedly, as did Jalen Watson. The Sebring was left parked in Allison Becker's driveway with Gordon. LArry Taylir walked to the house and walked in. Then Jalen Watson walked to the house and walked in, Watson walked back to the Sebring in Becker's driveway. Taylor left the Blackburn's, walked back to the Sebring, "threw the cards at them", and walked back to the Blackburn house. That's a whole lot of foot traffic back and forth, especially sitting there with a Sebring full of stolen property in someone's driveway, with neighbors taking their trash out to the curb and leaving for work. For guys intent on breaking in through the back of people's apartments and homes, what changed as it got closer to daybreak in an obviously awake neighborhood? Unlike the other two jobs that morning, there seemed no fear of being caught in this particular job. They could have cased the neighborhood to know Allison Becker's schedule, but Davey was leaving late and cut his workout short-a change in schedule on both ends.

Police Say Kidnapping Post About Missing Student Dakota James Is A Hoax

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — On Thursday, an image began circulating on social media that caused many to call police.

The photo was a screenshot of a food order placed through Yelp from someone claiming to be Dakota James, saying he had been kidnapped on the North Side and was being held in the basement of a home in Shaler.

Shaler Township and Pittsburgh police both say that online post about the missing Duquesne University grad student is false.

The note reads:

Instructions:

"I was kidnapped several weeks ago on the North side. I found access to the internet inside the house i'm being held at. The address is [Redacted] in shaler. I am being held inside the basement of the home. I need you to call 911 and call the police. Dakota James.

Police went to the Shaler home and said there was no truth to the story.

Lt. Sean Frank, of the Shaler Police Department, said, “The Shaler resident [who lived at that address] was not involved in the incident in any way.”

Pittsburgh Police released a statement indicating that they also thoroughly investigated the post and that James “was not at the location, and there is no reason to believe he ever was.”


Shaler Police say they are looking into who created “this hoax.”

James, 23, was last seen on Jan. 25 in Pittsburgh’s Cultural District. He was believed to be walking to his home on the North Side.

A friend of the James family, Cathey Rhodes, said, “We are disheartened by someone’s choice to use Dakota’s name, and we hope this situation, and those responsible are brought to justice accordingly.”

Some people DO win the lottery! It happens!
Data shows that when a pregnant woman is killed, the first person they should look to is the husband/boyfriend. Why is that the data/statistic? Because stats show in many cases, the husband/boyfriend is the one who did it, the one who most felt the need to off the pregnant woman. Feeling burdened by a pregnant wife is not an uncommon thing. Wishing one didn't have that burden is also not uncommon. So maybe it's not such a huge coincidence when the pregnant wife is randomly killed and the husband who had zero to do with the murder happens to be one of those men feeling such pressing weight by his pregnant wife. Even his joyful interviews after the murder. No proof of guilt at all. Guilty of being glad she was killed, but not guilty of killing her or having her killed.

In fact, I wonder how many men who have pregnant girlfriends/wives might not feel a twinge of relief when the pregnant girlfriend/wife dies. 25% ? 50 ?

The theory of Davey feeling "relief" that Amanda was out of his life (but not being guilty of killing or having her killed) would make much more sense if not for his changing stories and trying to hard to get everyone to believe he *honestly thought* the scene into which he walked that morning was caused by a miscarriage.

That type of truth-twisting and need to persuade goes far beyond just "grieving differently" or even being downright glad he's single and free again.

There would be no need to switch his story around if he had nothing to hide, as he said.

I really think that Taylor is the patsy in this case. If I'm right what then what would the motive be to be to have that millstone draped around his neck, sacrifice style.

Lol.

How dare you say there is no evidence! Any suggestion that DB isn't CLEARLY guilty of murdering his wife (which you did not suggest, as far as I can see) is met with animosity bordering on seething hatred. If you've been reading this blog, you would see all the "evidence" these crime fiction writers and obsessive online detectives have collected. (I'm joking). Their evidence consists of fantasy fiction scenarios ad nauseam, which have been repeated so often that they are now accepted here as truth. It's just odd how law enforcement seems to be missing ALL this compelling evidence.

Please keep in mind that, although SA applied correctly by an expert (Peter) is revealing, these commenters are embarrassingly inept at the technique. Bobcat, for instance, has fantasies that Davey, Meg, Perry, and various others read here and are very worried "we" are onto them. Bobcat and her ability to correctly statement analyze illustrated her considerable lacking when she "analyzed" me as being Davey, himself. LOLOL. She's accused me at least twice of being DB. Of course, that "closed the case" for me regarding bobcat and her SA ability, because I, obviously, know who I am, and it's not Davey. Lol!!! Therefore, if bobcat's SA told her that about me, how believable is her SA about Davey? If she's that wrong (using statement analysis on me), she's a useless analyst all the way around.

She's a big waste of SA time, and it rather disappointed me when I realized how useless SA is in the hands of a gross amateur such as bobcat.

So....if you want to be one if the "in crowd" here (which consists of only 3 or 4 wannabe self proclaimed sleuths), do not EVER imply Davey may not even be a suspect (doesn't look as if he is) in his wife's murder and is nothing more than a narcissistic POS who is incredibly unlikeable.

There IS no evidence linking Davey, but these people are so hung up on their own brand of evidence that they're in deep denial.

Turner said...

This is hilarious. But really Bobcat is a girl??
There's a few others that come to mind with their developing theories. I always feel bad for Peter who has stayed so consistent with his analysis and has made clear his position on Davey AND this blog being SA and not the place to hash out your every hunch/fantasy of what happened. However, it is pretty amusing to see how people's minds work!

Me2l also goes by the name Brenda Lepchenko on Facebook. Me2l used the same profile photo on Google and FB, at one point, and uses the same belittling language to criticize "you people" who point out Davey's lies.

That's not SA. It's putting 1 and 1 together.

A mistaken guess (or two) on my part does not excuse Davey's lies and omissions regarding the morning of 11/10/2015.

Coincidentally, Brenda is the name of Davey's mother. Lepchenko is a big name in tennis, and Davey's uncle is a tennis coach.

Coincidentally.

Indy Dweller, don't let the Anon poster bother you. Whoever it is gets on here several times a day to defend Davey, which is fine, just wish there was information backing it up. Only insults so far.

There was a post on Datalounge regarding another Indy local. She was visiting the poster's city. He discovered she was from Indy and started asking her about the case. She had not heard about it but was shocked to realize that she knew Davey Blackburn and that he works out at the same cross fit box. She said he is there all of the time. Ha! I can see it. It goes way beyond being healthy for Davey. Just like Peter said on the broadcast, he is out of control with his flamboyant narcissism. How much time a week does he spend on his looks including working out, tanning, whiting, eye brow and hair grooming, picking out just the right pair of skin tight shredded jeans and painted on t-shirts. He looks like a completely different person than before Amanda died.

I point out the many flaws in your analyses, because your fiction writing is getting you no closer to implicating Davey, and the utter insensitivity to Amanda's family exhibited here is worse than disgusting.

Davey being an egocentric, narcissistic, lying manipulator does not make him a murderer, and no one here has offered any "evidence" or realistic theory to show otherwise.

Why do you not express similar concern for Davey's family?

Is it because they are already aware of his issues?

It is because they are familiar with the big lie from his past that precluded a distressing family move?

Davey stalking through house and "looking for Amanda in bedroom, bathroom and then bedroom again" and then seeing Amanda "bowed in position of surrender" and saying "Are you OK" is analagous to Billie Dunn peeking in Hailey's room, seeing her but not "touching" her as well as analagous to McCann's peeking in Maddy's room and "checking in wardrobe". In my opinion, this language is used post-homicide (yes, I know Amanda was still breathing but Im making a point) by those directly involved in the homicide.
Davey was involved imo.

Crazy Davey spoke at the Thrive Worship night in the Elkhart area last week. It is now online. I clicked on just one section as he is telling everyone about Weston asking for milk, and makes everyone do the milk sign. He then laughs and said some of you are doing this, demonstrating the boob squeeze. He says I know it can be confusing.I sometimes think this guy is just trying to make a mockery of the church. Purposefully.

He is talking about God speaking to him personally telling him to change his sermon and speak the same sermon he preached at Elkhart about the great revival. (think dry bones)Geez. He is also tells the people who are in attendance that they were divinely appointed to be there to hear his message.

This is all in just the first few minutes. I may try to transcribe this one. Something comes over this loon when he gets in front of a larger audience. It is like a drug for him. He seems gets a super high and a crazed look in his eyes. He really must get bored every week speaking to the same 50 teenagers. He was "meant" for bigger crowds because he is such a divinely sent messenger with direct orders from his jeezus.

I wouldn't bother transcribing. It's mostly his 'highlight' reel. He is very careful to not talk about events of 11/09 and 11/10/2015, although he does talk about Levi Lusko's video "preparing" he and Amanda for what was to come.

He tells the audience that he is speaking a different sermon than he had planned because god told him to. He repeatedly sells that HIS pain was for good, with god and jeezus (his conversation buddies - he has discussions with them all the time) in full agreement in the planning of his (and Elkhart's) pain for growth. No pain, no gain.

Bobcat said...

He also sells the "peace that passes all understanding" as his excuse for being on national TV and showing no signs of grief.

I love watching this. It's such a perfect illustration of your error-strewn, months-long conjecture.

You see, it confirms to me, personally, that you do NOT know what you're doing.

Peter knows I am not Davey (or anywhere remotely near him), because, after all, this is Peter's blog, and he has access to information such as ISPs. I'm sure it's disappointing to him when he sees how mistaken his "star" pupils are and how they misuse SA.

Hey Jude said...

Anon - I am not a star pupil, and have not received SA training, so please don't attempt to discredit SA on my account.

I didn't say or think you are Davey. I wondered why you said, 'It's not Davey' rather than 'I am not Davey'. I do wonder if you know Davey or have spent time around him.

Who has the remote?
It's not me.

Who's walking the dog?
Not me.

Who did that?
Not me.

In my experience, 'it's not me' is used when in close proximity to the one who might be doing or saying whatever is in question. I don't know if that is a thing in SA, I just found it an interesting turn of phrase, and wondered about it in the hope someone who knows might comment. I would be most likely to say, 'I'm not Davey' if I had no connection, and would expect anyone else who wasn't Davey to choose that rather than to say 'it's not me'. ''Tis all. I am quite willing to be wrong, though I'd prefer to be right.

Of course, if you had any ability to consider perspective, it might occur to you there are other possibilities (besides the fact it's a common phrase). Maybe I'm employed by a school district without it involving Davey.

You people crack me up, and it's become quite clear to me you have no idea what you're doing, simply by your hilariously mistaken "analysis" of me.

There's a few others that come to mind with their developing theories. I always feel bad for Peter who has stayed so consistent with his analysis and has made clear his position on Davey AND this blog being SA and not the place to hash out your every hunch/fantasy of what happened. However, it is pretty amusing to see how people's minds work!





I think there may be a Mr and Mrs bobcat here.

Yes, what goes on here is about as far removed from statement analysis as it can get, relying more on crime fiction writing and fertile imaginations than anything else.

Yes, Peter can see it, obviously - he said on the CrimeWire broadcast that some of us read things which are not there - he has said that several times previously in different contexts. Why obsess about the blog comments when it's Peter's analyses of Davey, and the CrimeWire, which are of real significance?

HJ,

I am still waiting for Me2l/Anon to explain this statement:

"Me2l said...Somewhere, over the course of the past several months, I remember hearing or reading in all Davey's compulsive talking that Amanda was the money manager in their home."
October 15, 2016 at 11:57 AM

I can't find anywhere that DB stated that Amanda was in charge of the finances. The only record I have is a sermon from February where Davey is begging for tithes and tells a story about how Amanda asked HIM if they had money to write a check:

"You don’t know this but Amanda convinced me to pay your way last, last year. She said “I want (points at Harry) to make sure Harry can go to the gauntlet. Do we have it?” I said “No. We don’t have it.” She said “Let’s write it anyways.” OK?"
http://case-discussions.blogspot.com/2016/04/overwhelmed-week-2-feb-12-2016.html

-----------------------------

Surely, if DB had written on social media that Amanda was the money manager in charge of finances, we would have discussed it here. He is admittedly OCD and a control freak.

I can certainly see him blaming her for money issues now that she isn't here to defend herself, but I don't believe it, at least not until I see a quote.

Did you hear Davey "compulsive talking" in person?

It's a simple question.

Hey Jude said...

Bobcat - I don't recall Davey saying Amanda was in charge of the finances. He did say somewhere that Amanda used to dress him, from which one could draw that she chose and bought his clothes, or was with him when he bought them. He's enjoying his new young wardrobe, which Amanda probably would not have chosen or found they should afford; when Amanda was alive Davey wore button down shirts and tee shirts and jeans - I doubt he had 'Nike everything' which had to match then - or that girlish denim jacket and the red Dorothy shoes.

Davey's appearance is very important to him - new wardrobe, teeth fixed, hair, beard, Crossfit, in the time since Amanda died. In that sense, one could see how Amanda might have 'controlled' the finances from Davey's perspective, whether actually she did or did not - they could not have afforded for his vanity expenses to exceed their finances.

Hey Jude said...

From the link posted above, just in case Davey, his in-laws, or any of his staff, tithe givers or followers who have any niggling doubts around God speaking to Davey in the shower, etc, might be looking in:


'For whatever the reason, some people feel compelled to us God’s name as a stamp of approval on their stories, their decision to move churches, their decision to go into the ministry, or their decision to take a job transfer. Either way, it’s not true. It’s intellectually dishonest. We as evangelicals must not allow people to continually get away with using this language. We certainly shouldn’t celebrate it. Hear the word of Charles Spurgeon from a sermon he preached titled, “The Paraclete,” October 6, 1872:

Take care never to impute the vain imaginings of your fancy to Him [the Holy Spirit]. I have seen the Spirit of God shamefully dishonored by persons – I hope they were insane – who have said that they have had this and that revealed to them. There has not for some years passed over my head a single week in which I have not been pestered with the revelations of hypocrites or maniacs. Semi-lunatics are very fond of coming with messages from the Lord to me, and it may spare them some trouble if I tell them once for all that I will have none of their stupid messages… Never dream that events are revealed to you by heaven, or you may come to be like those idiots who dare impute their blatant follies to the Holy Ghost. If you feel your tongue itch to talk nonsense, trace it to the devil, not to the Spirit of God. Whatever is to be revealed by the Spirit to any of us is in the Word of God already – He adds nothing to the Bible, and never will. Let persons who have revelations of this, that, and the other, go to bed and wake up in their senses. I only wish they would follow the advice and no longer insult the Holy Ghost by laying their nonsense at His door. '

Bingo said...

Interesting and very well written article that Davey's brother posted. The last paragraph is the best!

"Don’t immediately classify a friend as a lunatic or a heretic if they use the “God told me” language in their communication. However, when you hear people talking in this manner, it should serve as a big red flag. Exercise wisdom and gentleness when confronting this error among friends or church members, but in the case of calling out false teachers, mark them so that others will not be led astray."

Davey IS a false teacher and he IS leading others astray. He is walking RED FLAG dressed in tight ripped jeans and painted on t-shirts. No one seems to be calling him out. Maybe his brother has tried?

Hey Jude said...

Sadly, all too common a means of manipulation by a certain type of 'evangelical' pastor/minister/cleric - call it out at your own peril, and become the 'devil' trying to frustrate 'God's will' etc. He has a young congregation, but there must be some amongst them who can see the narcissism and manipulation behind Davey's 'words from the Lord'.

RE: Peter February 27, 2017 @ 10:25 AM- Agreed and well said! I think that's a pretty accurate assessment, unfortunately.

Davey seems "driven", even beyond ambition...almost angrily (like with an angry, vengeful edge). Maybe because he knows that, even yet, his "success" is due to Amanda. That's the problem with needing a wife to slingshot your ministry- it solidifies that you were incapable of the success in your own right. In my opinion, Davey "acting out" is Davey desperately trying to rid himself of Amanda, all that was good about Amanda, and the truth about himself and his ministry career. He's going for broke in a desperate effort to defy reality. IMO, that's why he birthed Davey Blackburn Ministries, Inc. It's either his parachute when Resonate fails to produce under his "leadership" or he's planning to leave Resonate and stepping his game up a notch, trying to break out of the Minor Leagues and into the Majors.

You're "still waiting"? Lol. I either missed your request or it was so meaningless and inconsequential that I ignored it. At any rate, it left no impression upon me, and I did not realize you had been investing so much time into searching for something that may never have been said or implied--something that I did not state as factual, but rather, as something I thought I recalled.

I may have been mistaken. That's why I stated it the way I did. I may have misinterpreted something I read (you know....the way you people often misinterpret in your collection of "evidence").

I'm curious, though, why it would cause such angst in you....waiting for a response....as if it would be more "evidence" for your collection. Considering the banality of the remark, as well as its ambiguity, it's hard to imagine why, but then, much of your self-perceive d "evidence" is puzzling (rather, the fact you think you have evidence at all is puzzling).

BTW, you're a never-ending source of amusement to me with your deep need to solve mysteries where there are none. Not everything is a mystery (Me2l/anon); never intended to be. If that were the case, I have solved the bobcat/anon mystery as well.

It's no worse than almost libelously labeling people as killers (along the way, also near libel, implicating various family members of the victim as being complicit).

its a game to these people.....online sleuthing. Problem is, this involves real people.

As I've pointed out here before, bobcat has discredited herself and her ability to grasp and apply SA.....proof being in her wrong analysis of me as Davey (among others) of which she was so certain. Now, we have her 180 on that one by solving her personal "mystery" as to my identity.

According to reports from probable cause affidavit, both thugs implicated LT as the shooter.

Now, do you amateur sleuths think LE is dumb enough to question them together, or were they questioned separately, allowing LE to determine one story did not contradict the other, but in fact corroborated the other? Of course, as ..... uh ...... clueless as you presume LE to be, maybe they don't know how to properly interrogate the way you people here do.

Doxing (from dox, abbreviation of documents),[1] or doxxing,[2][3] is the Internet-based practice of researching and broadcasting private or identifiable information (especially personally identifiable information) about an individual or organization.[3][4][5][6][7]

The methods employed to acquire this information include searching publicly available databases and social mediawebsites (like Facebook), hacking, and social engineering. It is closely related to internet vigilantism and hacktivism.

Doxing may be carried out for various reasons, including to aid law enforcement, business analysis, extortion, coercion, harassment, online shaming, and vigilante justice.[8][9]

How interesting. Do "you" and "Peter" discuss these things?

As I told you, there has been no mystery solved, and being SA'd by someone who knows how im doesn't bother me in the slightest. You are desperately proud of your doxxing, but I'd be curious how proud Peter is of you and your methods. Obviously, you can't properly apply SA, but your doxxing methods indicate a harassing-type mentality to force others to fall in line with you. It doesn't work on me, but not a good thing for you.

The affidavit says:
She was also shot in the lower left arm and

had a possible gunshot wound to her upper left back.

It is true that gunshots are not commonplace in most peoples' day to day lives -

But- the slimmest chance that Davey could think that Amanda's injuries were related to a miscarriage - and it's a stretch - is if there wasn't also furniture turned over, duct tape and earbuds on the floor near Amanda, change scattered on the landing, swisher sweets on the counter, credit cards scattered on the floor.

Clear evidence of a crime scene - or at least that someone had been in his house - no question. It's in the APC, documented forever what he told Detective Perkins. As much as he wants to convince everyone that he had no idea someone had been in his house - he can't undo his statements to the detective that morning.

He also had no idea that Weston would grow up without his mom - quote from his blog referring to Amanda -
"She had no idea she would literally give Weston over to Jesus when he was 15 months old."

Hmmm, Amanda giving Weston over to Jesus fits in nicely with Davey presenting Amanda holy and blameless to the Father as he watched on (or however his story went with that). It would be figuratively though Davey, hot literally - Amanda did not hand him over in any way, shape or form.

And while Amanda will definitely not be the one raising Weston through boyhood into manhood - we will see what happens - but someone other than Davey might need to be the one performing that role.. . .

On November 11, 2011, Davey and Amanda Blackburn loaded up a moving truck and drove from Greenville, South Carolina to Indianapolis, Indiana to start Resonate Church, a place they hoped would bring new life to a city and reach people who didn’t know God.

Almost four years later on November 10, 2015, the unspeakable happened. Davey came home from the gym to find that his wife, who was pregnant, had been shot three times during a burglary gone wrong in their home. Thankfully, their fifteen-month-old son was left unharmed in his bedroom just down the hall. Amanda passed away twenty-four hours later.

The story hit headlines across the country, and the months following Amanda’s death brought Davey to the lowest level in his life. Nothing Is Wasted is the deeply moving story of Davey’s journey of despair and hardship, hope and healing, and how he has discovered firsthand that God has a bigger purpose in our pain. It is through this tragedy and Davey’s brokenness, forgiveness, and willingness to share his story that God’s presence and healing power allows triumph, victory, and forgiveness have the last word.

Nothing Is Wasted: The Courage to Find Purpose in Your Pain, Davey’s forthcoming book, a heart-wrenching yet inspiring story of a man wrestling with loss, grief, and forgiveness after the murder of his wife, and how he discovered that God always has a bigger purpose in our pain. - See more at: http://ambassadorspeakers.com/ACP/speakers.aspx?name=DAVEY%20BLACKBURN&speaker=5764#sthash.qVdne3OJ.dpuf

The video from his visit to Dave Ramsey.

Foolsfeedonfolly said...

Peter- In reading numerous articles from a wide variety of sources just this evening, I keep seeing the phrase "Davey came home from the gym to find/to discover..." in each one of them. Davey's story has been told countless times now. Why not the more expedient "He came home to find/to discover..."? It seems like the more times it's repeated, the more glaringly unnecessary that phrasing becomes.

It's interesting that on the DaveyBlackburn.com under the Speaking tab, there's a Short Bio and a Long Bio. They employ different language. The Short Bio omits the "Davey came home to find..." and Amanda is tragically killed. The Long Bio has the line, along with "his wife murdered in a home invasion".

Equally interesting(?) is that Davey's provided 8 professional Promotional pictures under the "For Promoters" heading. SMH

Bingo said...

I literally became sick to my stomach reading this bio and seeing him listed among America's top Christian speakers. At least they decided to use a more solemn looking picture. This is the one of few in his picture library that doesn't show him with the biggest, most gleeful smile. Don't forget he took these pictures only about 3 months after he walked in to "discover" Amanda in a pool of blood. I sure don't see much post trauma in his face. I also agree with Peter he resembles the band Wham! in the shots. The tight ripped jeans, short blue jean jacket and short black leather jacket with purple shirt. How tall and stiff could his hair possibly stand up? The odd shaped beard and mustache perfectly groomed. I am also disturbed that Dave Ramsey seems to be backing him and allowing the financial peace university video to be used for the promotional video. SMH

Hey Jude said...

In the talk at the Dave Ramsey event, Davey says that there was a bullet lodged behind Amanda's eye - I think he has not said that previously? He speaks again about the time he and Weston were staying at a friend's house after Amanda's murder, when he was teaching Weston how to 'destroy things' and be 'destructive' and to 'bust open' the French doors to get his toys, and how he will never forget Weston saying 'Eyes, Daddy, eyes' - and how he reassured him that nothing in there would hurt him, and there were only 'blessings' in there.

---
I do wonder if Weston witnessed the attack on Amanda, or the aftermath as she lay dying, I still find it interesting how Davey puts Weston's ability to use sign language with 'eyes' and fear, and now also says a bullet lodged behind Amanda's eye. Maybe Weston was reenacting what he saw rather than Davey encouraging him to be 'destructive'. I think it quite possible Weston saw something and Davey has been anxious since that he could yet convey it through signing or now speech. Davey says several times that he 'will never forget' about Weston saying 'eyes'.

Is it possible Weston saw trauma to Amanda's eye?

Am I off track, or is Davey troubled by the French doors incident and trying to explain it away for the benefit of the people he was staying with, who might have witnessed and discussed it?

Anonymous said...

So when Davey is talking about "doors", "lights", in regards to some sick game he is playing with Weston, scaring him while he finds his toys in a dark room, we dont need to be concerned about that???
How about the disturbing fact he created a (disturbing) sexual innuendo when Amanda asked him to clean up Weston's toys which linguistically should alert us.. This should increase the concern.

My concern level for Weston is through the roof right now.

Davey is so sick and should not be a parent. At minimum, he created a terrifying game he involved Weston in, and this is a kid who's mother was murdered in a home invasion. Why the hell would he create a scenario to scare Weston? The guy is SUCH a LOSER.

Hey Jude said...

Anon @ 1.17 - I think virtually everything Davey says about Weston is cause for concern - he's such a control freak, and as he says, he does not want to be a single parent.

i don't know how doors and lights work in SA or if the context in which Davey used them should give cause for particular concern. I know that those things can be indicative of sexual abuse, but I do not know the correct application/interpretation of doors/lights - or most things SA, but I like reading and commenting. I should probably shut up, but Davey does my head in.

Hey Jude said...


As in 'context is vital' - you can't just assume mention of doors or lights equal sexual abuse. I'd have to read or reread all the posts about doors and lights and then think about if what Davey said should be worrying that wise, and still might be wrong as I am not trained in analysis.

Let’s put it on youtube.” Right? And sure enough, as she’s laying on this balloon, it’s POP! Right! She’s boom, faceplant, and we’re all like “Bwahhhhh!” I mean, it was awesome.

This is an old blog but it came up on social media the other day. It is so spot on.

Crazy Davey spoke at the Thrive Worship night in the Elkhart area last week. It is now online. I clicked on just one section as he is telling everyone about Weston asking for milk, and makes everyone do the milk sign. He then laughs and said some of you are doing this, demonstrating the boob squeeze. He says I know it can be confusing.I sometimes think this guy is just trying to make a mockery of the church. Purposefully.


What Peter said about Greg Neal (a need to humiliate those he purports to serve) IMO, can easily be applied to DB.

Talking about the ASL sign for milk was a “set-up”, i.e., gesturing a “boob squeeze” at the congregation was an excuse to call them “confused" (stupid because they fell for it), and to especially direct his disparagement at women (breast). It was nothing more than a mean-sprited “joke” and in keeping with the way he treated Amanda when she was alive. Someone would have to think like a pervert to think ahead like that in order not to fall for the “joke". Gesturing/squeezing an imaginary woman’s breast *at* someone, in the same vein as talking about his son’s need for sustenance, (which is not how an infant/toddler would obtain sustenance from their mother) speaks to the IMO, perversion, streaming throughout his conscience as well as, IMO, his need to compete even with his infant son. I'm not a psychiatrist, but that's how he comes off to me.

I wonder if DB suffers sexual dysfunction. It’s all he talks about which makes the topic of sex really sensitive to him.

Hey Jude said...

I agree, Nic - I'm surprised women don't walk out when he does that, refers to them as 'chicks' and is so generally demeaning. It's one thing for him to hold a scriptural type attitude towards men and women in the church, quite another to interpret it in a way that allows for mockery and demeaning behaviour as standard. He's so immature - I think he would not last five minutes as a pastor in a conventional church - he'd be out for obscenity and generally inappropriate behaviour. Conflicted, relies heavily on women, whilst trying to convince himself they are somehow his inferior.

What woman writes her husband a journal full of letters and doesn't share them with him?
One who is writing all her complaints to get them off her chest while maintaining the image of a happy marriage.

Amanda is shown to have sent her friends loving and supportive thoughts on a regular basis.

What kind of notes will she supposedly have written to Davey but NOT shared with him?

Think about how quickly Davey had Amanda's journals out and ready to share within days of her death. Who would even have the mind to think that way. That last journal post was ready to go as soon as she died and he had it all over the media before she was even buried. It fit the narrative way too perfectly. I still think it is a fake entry. I am also very suspect that this known liar found a bunch of letters written to him in a journal while he was cleaning out his garage. He is a self proclaimed OCD person, I doubt anything would be hidden and not cleaned out and organized perfectly as soon as he moved into the house. I bet the pages look similar to the last journal entry and bet they will all be glowing with compliments toward Davey.

Hey Jude said...

There might be one or two minor criticisms, for 'authenticity's' sake - like how he didn't speak to her for days when she accidentally caused his grill to fall off the deck - probably it will transpire that those days were such a great opportunity for Amanda to spend more time in the Word, as her heart was prepared for the trial she was not yet in, and to write all those letters to Davey. Shucks.

Does Davey even freak out people in the gay community with how he dresses...like the skin right white jeans with super-undersized jeans jacket? I know most gay men are very good with fashion and I would think they would find his style of dressing tacky and cheap looking. Would Davey be welcomed in the gay community or would they find something "off" about him (and his appearance)? I know that many times gay men have assisted me when clothes shopping and they have very strong beliefs about what looks "right"...they take everything into account--texture, color, design.....generally they have very good taste in clothing....would Davey be accepted since he looks so tacky?? I feel like gay men "hate" tacky clothes.

@4:02, Well I guess that could be a generalization I made..."they" meaning there is always at least one gay guy working in the store I like to buy clothes at, and they do have excellent taste in clothes and have helped me on occasion. They generally are very confident about what looks best and they usually are quite right!! The last time a gay guy helped me there though (last year), he actually got upset with me because I did ask him what he thought of the shoes I wanted to buy, and he ended up walking away in a huff because I would not agree that they looked better in black rather than a natural shade for Spring/Summer. For several hours I was like "oh my God, he's probably right I probably just committed a fashion disaster, but I did stick with my choice. Therefore, I figure if they saw Davey's outfits that look very tacky and cheap, and honestly I think most gay guys would be annoyed by how ill-fitting his clothes are, because it looks horrible. jmo

Just had a chance to watch the Disney videos on Davey's blog. Yeah, he looks real down in the dumps dancing around in his skinny jeans. I cant imagine the guys that have helped me at the store I like not laughing at those skinny jeans on Davey. Davey has an evil glint in his eye in one of the videos where he is on a ride with Weston. Davey does not looks even slightly disturbed or haunted by Amanda's death.

I agree.

In spite of politicians telling young people there is no such thing as masculinity and femininity, I agree with the above comment.

As masculinity is in decline in Europe and the west overall, so is the trend towards effeminate appearance, in various manner. This not only is seen in clothing, appearance and bearing, but in the language.

We find, more and more, "I feel" in the language of males under the age of 35, for example. This is why some analysts will now say "this is either a female or an effeminate male" in identifying an anonymous author.

Blackburn's appearance is distinctly effeminate and his language indicates a very strong need to persuade that he is heterosexual.

It does not take deep analysis to grasp this one.

I agree he is dressing to attract men. I fear for the men he attracts though, because he will dominate them and hurt them. He has already expressed his penchant for making rape and domination jokes about his wife. This is why I cannot accept male homosexuality as a "good" thing. The nice gay guys I have known were incredibly depressed and beaten down--one I knew in college was actively starving himself nearly to death and it broke me heart because he was the sweetest person. He would only eat lettuce for lunch and dinner and I asked him why and he said that is what gay men like is extremely skinny. It is a disgusting lifestyle composed of predators and prisoners, and I feel sorry for the "nice" gay guys who will end up being Davey's whipping post.

In all of this (Davey's rampant need to "share"), we should be asking ourselves who is his intended audience and what is the message? IS there more than one audience and one message?

The clothes?
The ever-present tan?
The trips?
The vacations?
Cross Fit?
The incessant selfies?
Weston as photo prop op?

What is Davey saying (or in some cases not actually saying) when he says things like:

"I want him to see that we get to go to some fun places because his mommy loved Jesus very much and people are inspired by her life.

1. He didn't say that they get to go to some fun places because Amanda "died for Jesus/giving her life for the Church so that the Church might live". Notice the oh-so-soft, highly minimized twist in the language. Notice how he mentally and verbally links that with "people are inspired by her life". Before her very violent death, very few people outside of Resonate Church and NewSpring NC Church knew who Amanda Grace Blackburn even was. She was not well-known or famous in any way, until Davey put his Communications degree to good use, using her death to plug his failing, twice-launched, 5yr-old and still less than 150-200 people (if that) business venture he calls a church.

2. Essentially he's conditioning Weston to believe that Amanda's providing all these fun places for them; in truth he's profited greatly from her death. He could never afford this lifestyle prior to Amanda being murdered.

"...I want him to see that his mommy lived her life pouring out to others, and that God has called us to do the same - even if that means hopping an airplane every once in a while. He has become quite the experienced world traveler, and he and I are making some great memories on these trips."

1. "Pouring out for others" is directly verbally tied to Amanda bleeding out in his living room. That he even uses that phrase is chilling. Secondly, "pouring out for others" is accurate because with a seriously financially struggling, failing business on the line requiring more effort to keep afloat, a pregnant wife and an expanding family were certainly liabilities (medical bills, particularly if there was a problem with the baby-Davey alluded to that in the Strings Week 3- Worship As A Weapon http://resonateindianapolis.com/mediacast/worship-as-a-weapon/, more children equaled more time Amanda wanted Davey to parent/spend as a family with less time for his business).

2. "...hopping an airplane every once in awhile."- Davey revels in traveling and does quite a bit of it, with and without Weston...far more than every once in awhile. It's hardly a personal "pouring out for others" for Davey. It's vital to networking, getting paid, publicity- all of which are essential to his mega-church pastor goal.

Peter- Totally agreed on the skinny jeans thing! They're ridiculously feminine and the guys wearing them look silly and girly. I cannot fathom how they fail to understand that the majority of clothing designers in the male fashion industry are overwhelmingly homosexual. It is "pleasing" to them to create clothes that "enhance" a feminized male, while telling him/implying that it's "edgy" and "individual". The manipulation should be very obvious, but they're clueless because of "social conditioning". So, they run around in their skinny jeans and two sizes too tight T's, priding themselves on how hipster they are, when they actually look like a homosexual's "dream girl" (what teen girls typically dress like to attract a guy) to the world. It's like their mirror (or should I say their body image) is warped and they cannot see that that particular style makes them look disproportionate at best.

Rant over now. Picking up soapbox and walking away.

Differences, yet similarities...

"When we look at gay male homicide across the United States, the pattern is that there's evidence of sexual activity prior to the killing. So that doesn't point to some stranger-hate-crime scenario. That points to a crime where there's internalized homophobia. Somebody on the fringe of society, who enjoys having sex with men but at the same time can't cope with that.

"Attack doesn't occur because they hate the other person," Drake says. "It's because they hate themselves."

In 1986, John Roe, the openly gay owner of the Quickway Diner in Bloomingburg, New York, was found dead in his home. He'd been robbed, beaten in the head and face, and stabbed multiple times in the chest."

@1:09, That explanation is an oversimplification. Both behaviors are symptomatic of their sadism in my opinion: the homosexuality and the violence. They are not violent because they hate themselves for being homosexual...they are both violent and homosexual. (Let me clarify, not all gay men are violent, some are beaten-down, starve themselves and succumb to deep depression and are abused and held captive.) Why don't gay people explain why their whole "narrative" is
sado-masochistic if their lifestyle is, in fact, not? There are the dominators and the dominated. The sadists and the masochists. That is my opinion until there is some proof otherwise.

Foolsfeedonfolly said...

Watching the videos of "Weston Goes To Disney", it is impossible to miss how Davey plays up to the camera. When he thinks the camera is on him he's all smiles like he's having the greatest time, but when he thinks it's not, it's plain to see that he's so bored. He continually "coaches" Weston or otherwise tickles him to get him to smile at the camera.

Davey gushes how much fun Weston had meeting the costumed characters- What a jerk! Weston's facial expressions and cowering body language clearly tell a different story, yet Davey keeps thrusting him and turning him back toward the character, forcing Weston because it's important to Davey's image that Weston be oh-so-excited and awed. Having done a short stint as a costumed character, most preschoolers are terrified of costumed characters. Psychologically, children read facial expressions to "judge" if a person/stranger is "safe". A costumed character's facial expression is frozen and preschoolers cannot judge that and feel afraid. They instinctively know it's "not right", even though they can't verbalize it. That's why Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny often produce screaming, crying, clawing to get down and get away babies, toddlers, and preschoolers.

The second issue is that the Costumed character have a blind spot roughly 3-5 feet in front of them. Essentially they cannot see from their waist down (toddlers and preschoolers are under that height). It is very easy to get too physically close to a child (and either overwhelm them, plow into them/plow them over, or both). Often costumed characters will have a handler helper "directing" them for that reason. Weston was not feeling the love for the costumed characters- As Amanda bluntly said, "That's not true.". It's sad that Weston is going to go through life second guessing his own emotions, reactions, and experiences because he's not allowed to feel the way he feels because it doesn't match or fit Davey's agenda. In several of the videos and pics Weston is doing a lot of self-comforting behaviors. In a few he's looking very flush and glassy-eyed, like he's either very tired or not feeling good (as in slightly feverish).

Davey purports that he and Weston "joined in the fun" in the street party, but actually Weston is just there and Davey doesn't even so much as smile while he's dancing Weston around on his shoulders. Weston looks completely uninterested, likely zoned out from sensory overload. Towards the end of the video, Davey reaches up and tickles Weston in a known tickle spot to "produce" a smile for the narrative. He's a great Dad-NOT! He's completely out of touch with Weston, knows very little about toddlers and preschoolers as things like this and his sermon illustrations and Weston "stories" show. Poor Weston! Davey needs a class in Human Growth and Development and Child Psychology, among other things.

@ all the people commenting on DB's wardrobe choices:

I have a large number of gay friends, and the only ones I've ever seen wear such tight clothing are small and lean. My gay friends who are larger or more muscular typically wear "normal-fitting" clothes like khakis or bootcut jeans. In fact, I once had a lunch date with a gay friend in the middle of a crossfit phase. He put on a now too-tight shirt, walked into the living room (where I was), said, "I look like a huge tool," and changed into something more loose-fitting. It was one of the funniest things I've ever heard, and I sometimes inadvertently call the phrase to mind when I see DB's instagram posts.

I think DB is dressing like he thinks a homosexual man would dress. I have never seen a gay or queer man wear those weird tunic shirts of his, and I can't imagine he is receiving the kind of male attention he seeks with those ill-fitting clothes.

I agree, he thinks that is how gay men dress. When they don't, because they usually have better taste. Honestly, other than the way he dresses, I don't really get a gay vibe off him. More like an aggressive hetero guy vibe.

I do actually get a hetero vibe off him...a vibe like stay away, he gives off a rapey vibe. I just absolutely despise men who make act like that...such a turn off with the rape jokes, and crash comments, he probably wasn't getting any because that kind of crass/violent talk is SUCH a turn off.

If he's gay (as has been suggested many times in this blog), wouldn't he already know how to "dress like a "homosexual man would dress"?

I swear. You people.

I'm sorry, I can't stop laughing at that line to take in the rest of what you wrote!






Lol

It reminds me of the book, "Letters From a Nut."

Absolutely hilarious, if you've never read it. Most humor is just not....but that one is pure gold.

I have never said DB was gay. I was on here a year ago getting flack for saying he wasn't gay.

All I'm saying is that I have never seen a gay man dress like he is. If anything, I'm supporting your point. He wants people to look at his body by drawing attention to it with those tight clothes. Well, he got our attention, but it's not the good kind.

Well, I did used to think Davey was gay...it's a little hard to tell which way metrosexual guys are leaning. I do also believe he is trying to get attention from both men and women (maybe just for his ego getting attention from men also). Linguistically, he reveals he is predominantly interested in sex involving domination of another person with an unwilling partner.. I cannot think of one remark he has made about sex that was not either a humiliating rape or sex toy joke or clarifying his belief that he should have sex on demand regardless of how she might have felt including whether she may have simply wanted to speak to him first. His obsession w talking about sex could be due to the fact he wasnt getting any bc public rape involving sodomy jokes about ones wife is a good way to never get laid again (at least not by her). He is repellant.

I think he's only into himself, he's not interested, or interested enough, in anyone else, to be in a serious relationship. I think he looks effiminate because he is dressing in clothes more suited to skinny teenagers - he's immature, maybe trying to relive his youth as a single, and he doesn't want to be on the wrong side of thirty, and a man. Pity anyone he might become involved with as time goes by - as with Amanda, they will be used as an ego boost in public, neglected in private - any relationship Davey has will only be for appearance's sake - there's not much room for anyone besides himself.

At the very least, he is incredibly effeminate. The time he must spend on
getting his hair just right before shellacking it must be inordinate. His perfectly groomed beard, tan, and odd, tight clothing serve to put him over the top. Even the way he carries himself and is overly dramatic seems over the top. The most tell-tale issue is how he goes on about how manly he is... The sex, sex, sex, sex, sex, and sex narratives only serve to show his insecurity. Weston is proof enough without talking about it all the time. He has something to prove that Weston's existence does not address. I'm not sure if he's trying to convince random people or himself. Talking about it in front of his "church" adds to the desperation factor. He has to put on a drama for the world to see.

One other thought where it said Amanda handed Weston over to Jesus. I would think that a baby dedication or similar early on would have accomplished that goal. My initial thought was that Amanda unwillingly "gave" Weston to Davey to care for.... Davey and jesus seem to be "we" again, but without using the actual "we" word. It's like Davey can stand in for his jesus.

Bobcat said...

Regarding the excessive grooming and overthought wardrobe...I get the sense that DB is grooming himself to 'perfection' just to hide the real self behind the shine. He's naturally handsome yet hides himself behind hair and bronzer.

The preaching wardrobe looks like the trendy teen/young mens section at your average budget department store. DB dresses more masculinely when visiting his Grandpa, or with his parents at Disney, than he does on stage preaching to teenagers.

Regarding Davey standing in for Jesus "she saw me" on the balcony...when I imagine what may have transpired that fits with Davey's language, it makes me so sad for Amanda and Weston. What horror they must have endured.

Anonymous said...

@Anon "I", I think his "insecurity" that fuels his constant sex narratives is the fact that he wants to be a sex "God" desired by ALL, yet he wasn't getting any sex from anyone. Amanda was clearly repelled by his rape talk. It's also not clear linguistically whether he has much experience sexually as when in above tape he talks about how he thought marriage would be a sex fest 100% of the time and says he pictured coming home and swiping everything on the counter onto the floor to have relations on the counter, and then says how wrong he was bc he says "Look at you ladies how you reacted when I said I would swipe everything onto the floor" and he implies they all gasped at hearing the stuff had been swiped on the floor. It's just clear he may have extremely minimal sexual experience the way he pictures scenarios happening or his partner's reactions or women's reactions. My guess is that Amanda was repelled by his disrespectful forceful crass style and did not want to have relations with him.

To further clarify, it seems Davey pictures male-female relations very cartoonishly as if he does not have much experience. I don't know how to explain it any better.

How do you think he pictures male-male relations? Any experience there?

I think you're misunderstanding me...Davey speaks of sex in a cartoonish way like he has not actually experienced it much (like maybe 4 or 5 times best guess) wiith probably ANY partner male or female. I could be wrong...Peter may be right that his constant talking about it could indicate SSA. Or it could indicate he is insecure from being very inexperienced. He said he had his sex life "robbed" from him (while still married). Davey's sodomy rape jokes, and aggressive crass humiliating talk could get someone to shut him down real quick.

The stuff he says regarding Amanda is humiliating--not sexy.

Bobcat's reason and justification for her doxxing: she was apparently so personally offended, she needed to "discipline" me, exact her revenge, and make me fall in line:

"BobcatFebruary 28, 2017 at 11:14 AM
Anon @ 7:45,

Me2l revealed herself through her statements to Peter and other SA experts here, long before I put one and one together.

If Me2l here, and Brenda Lepchenko on facebook, had simply disagreed rather than belittling and insulting others using similar phrases, I wouldn't have bothered studying their (briefly matching) profiles."


There ya have it. Pretty pathetic.

Since it is a matter of irrelevancy to me (my real life identity), but bobcat thought it would create a problem for me, the question is why does bobcat think it's such a big deal? After all, everyone uses fake monikers when posting on Internet sites.

My answer to that question is that bobcat would find it a big deal if her real life identity were to be revealed. It's something she would not want to happen to her, so she thought it would be unpleasant to me.

Why?

What are you hiding, bobcat? Who are you, really?

Hmmm. A mystery to be solved. I probably am up to the challenge.

Playing the victim again? Nice. Nobody is 'infuriated' by your opinions and nobody cares about your identity. LPT? If you don't want to be "doxxed" (you weren't, btw) perhaps you should refrain from mocking, deriding and insulting people's 'sleuthing' capabilities. You're like some kid squealing "can't catch me" who bursts into tears when they're caught. And why on earth are you bringing it up again? Enough with the fake hate.





You're very thick, bobcat.

I've told you several times knowledge of my real identity is not a problem for me. I don't care that you tried to dox me. This isn't about me. It's about you and your lack of integrity. (Yes, what you attempted is a form of doxxing. You're in denial and accept only what is palatable to you. Just be careful. You could dox the wrong person one day, and it will cause you done trouble).

You truly think you are getting revenge by revealing what you believe to be my real identity. And why do you need revenge? Why, because I ridicule you and other online sleuths! How DARE I??!! Lol. My, you take yourself so seriously.

You and your methods deserve to be ridiculed--creating fictional universes where your fiction crime story writing implicates and accuses innocent people through nothing more than your imagination. You have no ability to apply statement analysis...in your hands, it's always flawed. You don't begin with correct principles, that is clear. Your bias leads you to incorrect conclusions that you present as truth.

Flawed Doxer Bobcat. What a joke you've become.

Dox me all you want. I'll repeat: I don't care. I will continue to bring it up, though, because it reveals you for what you are--a weak-minded wannabe, whose sleuthing skills are pathetically lacking.

Bobcat, I have read your statements here and on your blog, and I think one of those statements/scenarios must have touch on the truth because the complaining anonymous bully is really, really upset. Keep up the good work.

Anon @ 6:32,

Oh, I know. Thank you.

Angry Me2l/Brenda/(I'm Davey),

My spouse is alive and well.

Amanda was brutally attacked and executed in her poorly-situated-home-for-a-random-robbery, to give her life to protect Weston so Davey's church could grow...

It's so sad.

"Remember, a hit dog, will holler."

-----------------------------------

These questions were posed to DB/Resonate (not Me2l or Brenda Lepchenko) late Saturday night, in response to his request for facebook LIVE questions. https://www.facebook.com/blackburndavey/videos/1482028198476232/

What did you do between 4:30 and 6:10 AM on 11/10/2015?
What internet sites did you monitor?
Who did you speak with/talk to/pour into?
Where was Amanda Byars Blackburn?
What was Amanda Byars Blackburn wearing?
What was Amanda Byars Blackburn doing?
Where and when were you ordained?
What do you consider to be the limit of what an obedient wife must "submit" to?
When do you consider that is it biblically acceptable for an obedient wife to divorce an abusive husband?
What do you consider to be a biblically acceptable punishment for a man who abuses his wife?
Who hurt you?

-------------------------------

By Sunday afternoon (after church), the "hit dog" hollered.

Good questions you asked Davey!

The law expects women to submit to the full extent. If he attempts to rape her and she knees him in the balls or gives him a karate chop she'll be punished by evil police expressing their latent homosexual S&M fantasies, handcuffs, domination, imprisonment...homosexual peacocks showing off for domestic rapists/abusers.

Bobcat said...

It's no worse than almost libelously labeling people as killers (along the way, also near libel, implicating various family members of the victim as being complicit).

Are you saying that implicating various family member of the victim as being complicit is NOT libel?


Just be careful. You could dox the wrong person one day, and it will cause you done trouble.

Done trouble? Is that a threat? Is that is an Appalachian slang dictionary?
