    Hey all, I'm still embroiled in my ongoing debate w/a few JW's and now we're on this tangent where they are saying that JWs are the most peaceful and law abiding people in comparison to other religious people. I said that's NOT true, there's been many news articles that detail various crimes committed by JWs. I couldn't find anything right away when I did a Google search, so can someone point me to some THREADS or LINKS that contain recent and past articles of JW's in trouble w/the law or who have committed crimes?

    Thanks in advance, y'all.

    I remember about ten plus years ago two stories, one involving a current Bethelite that stole from an employee, apparently he had some an outside job lined up and another one involving a JW couple in Brooklyn where the wife paid someone to kill her husband, both stories made the newspapers and pointed out the folks involved were JWs.

    SSOOOO many stores too, needless to say !

    Meant to say current Bethelite at the time of his crime.

    How's about a little EMBEZZLEMENT?? This POS is a repeat offender, worried the local congregations to death, all along his family KNEW what he was up to and feigned ignorance.

    Now, if this were his first offense, and considering his circumstances (read comment below from one of his's absolutely true!) I'd be quick to say he just went off the deep end. But this was a second offense, both offenses being committed while he was a JW in good standing! And ya know what? I know FOR A FACT he was not DF'ed, but welcomed back into the congregation with open arms. Why? Because he has a brother-in-law and a father-in-law who are elders!

    Neighbor's comment:

    Joe DaSilva is back...he apparently got 3 months for embezzling over $75,000! Wow. What a nice vacation on taxpayer expense. Not his first offense...two, count them, two outstanding warrants--one in Northboro, MA; the other Tiverton, RI.

    Well, Joe threatened me with eviction if my dog ran on "his" flower dog got loose once in four I'm real happy to see how the mighty, self-righteous Joe has fallen, along with his wife. She couldn't get much more egotistical, while maintaining tons of illnesses. She's too ill to take in an empty barrel; she's too ill to cook (Joe did the cooking); those poor people had Stop & Shop Pea Pod delivering, because his "poor, sad" wife couldn't shop. She could, however, entertain girlfriends all day, every day before Joe got home. They just apparently sat around and talked all day???

    This was passed along to their daughter. No college for her. No aspirations for a good job with attendant salary -- nosireee...she got herself a boyfriend -- just like Joe. She'll be waited upon hand & foot until he, too, gets sick to death one day, and takes off.

    Anyhow, now that they have their ill-gotten gains from stealing, they've put their place on the market and are ready to move on.

    GO, good riddance, Joe and Company.

    pathetic, disgusting, and we taxpayers are footing the bill for food stamps now! OMG.

    Not to bring religion into it, but what an awful example of Jehovah Witnesses in this family.

    These links have tons of stories. I've never seen this website before. I found it after reading your question and trying to track down the Kelle Jarka case. I believe this guy is an elder. He's the service overseer in prison now I think.

    This guy was an elder multiple times, multiple pedophile too. On the top 15 most wanted list in the nation if I'm not mistaken.

    Hi Black Man, Try the following websites:

    Also, JWs will usually try to change subjects when they feel that they are losing. When they try to change subjects, you might ask them whether they are conceding that you won the argument by them changing subjects. Be prepared to say have a nice day and walk away when they constantly try to change subjects.

    Peace be with you and everyone, who you love,

    Am curious to know why people can post a pic of someone who did wrong but I cannot name a person that did it without it being erased?

    RUTH stole 30 grand from me.

    I see it's been posted already . . . but the list of criminals here is looooooong long . . . check out the list down the left hand side if you haven't already.

    I was aware of 8 seperate cases of sexual criminal behavior that were never dealt with by the authorities over 27 years. Also I was "ripped off" by an Elder to the tune of $5000 and told I could not "scripturally" approach the authorities. I spoke to a detective anyway, who said "If you wish to make an official complaint . . . I'll get an arrest warrant" . . . of course I never did.

    I know back in 05 or 06 I was doing Temp work at bethel and a brother was arrested at Wallkill for picking up boys on the internet. The FBI had ran a sting on the internet and he bit. That was quite a big deal when I was there for that week. Totally ADD

    the problem with pointing these out to JWs is that they will invariably go to the argument that those criminals are not really JWs and that they were immediately expelled. It's an argument that is designed to distance the JWs from any of these criminals, even if they were active JWs when they committed their crimes.

    @ CoonDawg, I agree... Unfortunately, the media doesn't cover whether they were DF'ed or not... I know the one I posted was NOT...but that's hearsay and a JW would quickly give the "But you don't know FOR SURE" argument... Actually, I do know for sure because I saw him at an assembly right after he was released from prison and everyone was saying hi and he was smiling it up like he didn't do a damn thing wrong. But again...hearsay.
