Bloody Murder 38 - Mark “Chopper” Read Special Edition

October 30, 2017

Mark Chopper Read Special Edition...

Barney and Tara join forces for a 1 hour long look at Aussie crime icon Chopper Read! Chopper was a violent standover man, robbing drug dealers and pimps and torturing those who resisted his demands until they started to see things his way. His specialities were removing toes with bolt cutters and blow torches as well as putting live explosives in his mouth and threatening to blow up everyone, including himself. He proudly spoke of his moral code, saying that although he may have killed 19 people, tortured a lot more and caused a shit tonne of property damage he never hurt any innocent civilians. When he was released from prison in the early 1990’s Chopper parlayed his unique turn of phrase and sense of humour into becoming a best-selling true-crime writer, an author of children's books, a painter, rapper and stand-up comedian.

Bloody Murder 36 - Levi Bellfield and John Coombes

October 16, 2017

Levi Bellfield and John Coombes...

Levi Bellfield was a nasty British bastard who liked cruising the streets hitting on young blonde girls who had recently gotten off the bus. When the girls declined his unwanted advances he would become very aggressive, sometimes killing them on the spot for daring to say “No” to him. John Coombes was abandoned as a baby in a hotel room in Melbourne. Did this produce a troubling pattern of low self-esteem and a seething hatred of women and make him murder three times? Or was it greed? It's hard to know with this shitbag liar.
