West Springfield Slingblade Goes On Violent Crime Spree While Out On Bail For Prior Violent Offenses, Gets Tossed Down Stairs By Homeowner Who Wasn’t Having It, Held on $100,000 Bail

This walking meth sore is John LaRace of Springfield, and he had a pretty busy Sunday by all accounts.

Western Mass News:

“West Springfield Police said that around 10 a.m. Sunday, several 911 calls came in reporting a disturbance, shots fired, and an active shooter along the 100 block of Ohio Avenue.

Once on-scene, police arrested John LaRace of Springfield behind an Ohio Avenue home.

Local and state police began an investigation and found that LaRace was allegedly involved in four separate crimes with four separate sets of victims.

In the first incident, police allege that LaRace, while masked, went to one home and attacked a resident at his back door, pistol whipped him twice, and tried to get into the home and steal his car. 

“At this time this incident appears to be the intended target, however due to the crimes failure Mr. LaRace moved on,” police explained.

LaRace then allegedly confronted two neighbors, who were driving down the street, and raised his firearm and threatened them in what police described as an attempted carjacking.  The victims were able to drive away while keeping LaRace in sight and calling 911.

The third incident reportedly involved LaRace threatening two neighbors who were driving into their driveway with a firearm and attempting another carjacking.  Those victims put the car into reverse as LaRace held onto one of the vehicle’s doors.  He fell into the street, then fled to the back of that residence where he was eventually arrested.

Police then allege that LaRace broke the back window to the home and forced his way inside while armed with the handgun.  He then encountered the homeowner, who fought with LaRace and was able to physically force him back outside.

“LaRace falls down the rear stairs, where he is apprehended by WSPD Officers,” police explained.

Investigators recovered a 9-millimeter handgun with a spent shell casing inside, as well as a broken clip and items consistent with being used to bind someone.”


Can I just point out for a minute; Holy fuck, is this guy a dead ringer for Slingblade.

They could be from the same shallow gene pool.

Maybe he was just hungry. Sometimes you just have to bust out of the attic where momma keeps you, pistol whip a stranger, attempt to jack a couple cars, and get tossed down the stairs like the inbred halfwit you are to get some damn biscuits.

And of course, thanks to the angel-soft kindness of another compassionate judge, The Hills Have Eyes went on his crime spree while out on personal recognizance for a previous case of assault and battery causing serious bodily injury. Someone explain to me how this chud gets dragged in front of a judge on a serious violent charge, and the judge takes a look at this face:

And the record that undoubtedly goes along with it:

And decides, “LOL no big deal guys, send him back out into society, it’ll be fine.”


Yeah, it wasn’t fine. Shocking, I know. I mean, he was just about to start on his high school diploma at the ripe age of over 30.

Pretty sure this is why it’s illegal for first cousins to fuck.


He’s now being held on $100,000 bail, which is definitely a good thing, because judging from the looks of him he doesn’t know anyone who will earn that amount of money in their lifetime,


But it just seems like the entire neighborhood could have been spared an afternoon of violent terror if we just, you know, actually put dangerous criminals in jail.

    Look at his head, on the left side you can see a circle mark by his temple. The last home owner beat him with a COFFEE CUP.

    Oh wait, they’re ragging on a white guy and all the commenters are making fun of him and insulting him and shaming him as they should.

      I know what he did was very wrong. But I don’t think you should humiliate someone like this. He’s having enough exposure already and probably doesn’t need someone attacking him and ridiculing him in this way. He is someones son, a father a husband..and had a goal in life.
      This whole world needs help, good support and guidance.. and character assassination is not cool!
      Shame on this article!

      Solid dude… ya, a solid fucking goon… #1 he has a gun loaded with a spent shell (no report of shots fired & if so it would’ve been ejected, which means he loaded a semi auto with a spent casing… goon) #2 He got dummied by multiple regular everyday people during the course of his crime spree and couldn’t pull off one… and mind you, he had a fucking gun… goon #3, you can shave your head bro, but you’re still a ginger goon and #4, the pic where he’s with that guy in the T-shirt, I’m pretty sure that’s the “stif” from the freezer in Goonies!!! He’s a solid goon

    Another reason to stay locked and loaded in your home. These liberal fucktard Judges in this pathetic State won’t protect you. Sick of this revolving door shit? Here’s a simple solution: stop voting for Democrats !
    How do these cretin Judges get on the bench? Because they are sponsored by and appointed by : liberal Democrats !
    Wake the fuck up !!

    Glad to see he failed miserably and normal people ended up wrecking him before the cops got there.

    I was hoping that one of the people in the cars he was attempting to hijack would simply run his ass over. The best solution to this problem. He was in West Springfield illegally. He’s not suppose to leave Colrain.

    I up vote this comment.

      Was just about to mention this (no more up/down voting) as well. If anything, it can show the common reader denounces the racist rhetoric in the comment section (by down voting).

    A Masslive commentator mentioned that the first house might have been the home of a drug dealer which is why he started there. No idea if that is true.

    Not a bad section of town. Nice houses, single family homes with well kept yards.
    Rt. 20 is the main drag and on the PVTA route. What did he do, take the bus? Uber? Lyft?

    Shit hits the fan and you are already into car-jacking mode?

    “Pretty sure this is why it’s illegal for first cousins to fuck.”
    The guy on the right is 5 ft 2. So, yeah.

    At last he has his “Sawx” hat on. The hat for people who want to keep it local and real. No pussy Bulls hat for him.

    Its simple math. Four consecutive 10 year sentences for the four felony charges. I think 40 years would be a good deterrent.

      In Alabama he would have got 60 years for the first one.

      The first house is not a drug dealer. And that just sounds like victim blaming

    Love him sitting in court wearing hospital gown with as flapping in the breeze. I _ALSO_ love how not one, not two, but FOUR attempts at crime were successfully thwarted by citizens with enough gumption to FIGHT BACK. Too bad none were armed, his demise would save the state Time and $’s. Nice to see HE’S worse for wear. He should be sent away for long enough that, even if he were to learn from his incompetence, he would be so old and decrepit so as to not be able to act on those impulses.

    It isn’t his fault !! He is a ginger and all the massholes bullied him about it and he just wants his participation trophy now

    February 26, 2019 at 2:05 pm

    Seriously what’s the point of wasting time sending scum like this to school again? Find them a job breaking rocks or just put them in a gas chamber. Im fuckin sick of being surrounded by losers, parasites and retards in this shithole state of massofchewedshits.
