“Do You Think I Can Get Some Kind of Community Service?”: New York Man Sentenced For Killing 14-Year-Old Girlfriend Because She Might Be Pregnant

10039501_H10520069-250x250It took a Brooklyn jury just an hour to convict Christian Ferdinand, 22, for the murder of this girlfriend Shaniesha Forbes, 14. The jury’s disdain for Ferdinand might have been cemented by the comment that he made to police after allegedly confessing to the killing of his girlfriend, burning her body, and stuffing it into a suitcase: “Do you think I can get some kind of community service?”

010813MURDEREDGIRL1WMFerdinand reportedly was upset after Forbes told him that she was pregnant. Ferdinand said Forbes had told him she was pregnant in a text and told him that she wouldn’t get an abortion because her mom is religious. Ferdinand responded in a text with “My n—a, are you serious? Kill that shit.” He then told police that he later became enraged after she continued to talk about the pregnancy as they laid on a couch. He smothered her will a pillow. He then doused her corpse with Axe body spray and then used a Bic lighter to burn the body. He then stuffed it into a suitcase and threw it into Gerritsen Bay. He then fled to Maine.

When asked later if she struggled, he responded “She tried, wasn’t much of a struggle, she was little.” The autopsy later showed that she was not pregnant.

The community service thing did not exactly work out. Ferdinand now faces up to 25 years to life behind bars.

    Agree with this comment

    I am sure the sentence is racist and it will be lowered to community service.

    Also want to comment on my comments a month ago regarding these sentiments of racism around the country and being told we were beyond that as a culture.

    1. happypappies – nothing personal, but it is my general policy not to dig back through old thread to look for anything. Actually, I don’t know how and I do not have the patience. 😉 However, if you would like to restate your comments and directed them to me, I will look at them.

      1. Paul C. Schulte – the comment was at the beginning of the thread and that was the comment. It was very brief.

        The above was your comment 🙂 It is my policy this time of year to be so busy that I don’t have much time to look at the threads. Nothing personal.

          1. Paul C. Schulte. Taking today off until 3:00 p.m. so I am here to aggravate until then 😉

                Saw Christmas Program at The Eagles with Police Officers hosting SALT which is a Senior Citizen program for credit worthiness and also had Teen Challenge there which is for Drug Addicted men turning their lives around spiritually with the help of Jesus. We are not fundamentalists, we are more cleansed by the water if you know what I mean. You should being a Literary Person.

  2. Miss Westby may not be pleased. The phrase is always – right on cue. Think of the theater. Otherwise a queue is a line, or a data line or the weaving of a pigtail.

    1. Rufus – you are correct. Different phrases come from different walks of life and then move into common usage. The phrase “right on cue” does come from the theatre but it also comes from doing school plays, so it was easier for it to move into common usage.

  3. It was a toss up Rufus. I believe I was correct though in my usage as the ad hominem attacks typically follow the failure at normal debate. But cue would work as well.

  4. 1 new york states does not have the death penalty.
    2 unlike the federal criminal system, new york does not have sentencing guidelines.
    3 in new york, where the maximum of an indeterminate term is life, the full minimum must be served before there is any chance of parole.
    4 the details of the specific conviction(s) are not readily available, but it appears that defendant was convicted of murder in the first degree, which is a class a-1 felony. the minimum sentence for such crime is 15 – 25 years, and the maximum is life.

    i strongly suspect this guy will get the maximum, 25 to life.

  5. Paul, you quoted a comment of mine that JT had deleted, lol. I guess you didn’t read critically! 😀

    1. Inga – I quoted from my email which is behind what JT was deleting. So I had no idea he had deleted that. I commented on it before I saw the deletion notice

  6. And Paul, the article’s premise isn’t that pregnancy is harmful, but that many biochemical, hormonal occurrences come into play to keep a pregnancy going, when one of those occurrences doesn’t happen the pregnancy often ends. If you would’ve read the article you hopefully wouldn’t have misstated it’s premise.

  7. See Paul? I guess that answers my question. None of us has the authority to repost comments that JT has deleted.
