Last week, a dad in Daytona Beach, Florida, became my hero. The father, who remains unnamed, walked in on his 18-year-old babysitter and trusted family friend, Raymond Frolander, with his pants down around his ankles, sexually assaulting the man's 11-year-old son. The dad then proceeded to ask no questions and beat the living sh*t out of the guy. He then dragged him to the living room, left him laying in a pool of his own blood and proceeded to call an ambulance for the man. I'm sure I wouldn't have called him an ambulance. I would have started looking for a shovel.
A 7-year-old boy has been rescued from a horrific environment in which his mother and grandparents were beating him and starving him, almost to the point of death. He weighed only 25 pounds (that's LESS than a toddler!) by the time he was discovered by caseworkers! Doctors at the UPMC Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania said the boy was a month away from suffering from "a major cardiac event" had he not been removed from that house. And you won't believe the other kinds of torture he was subjected to at home…
A Mexican woman has been arrested for holding more 450 children in her home and subjecting them to sexual, mental and physical abuse as well as awful living conditions. Parents entrusted Rosa de Carmen Verduzco of Zamora in Michoacan with the care of their children, but when they tried to take their children back home were met with resistance and suspicions that something was not quite right. Crazy thing is that authorities have been asked to investigate Verduzco's operation since 2010!
It's little justice for a horrific crime--a U.K. man was sentenced to 15 years in prison for shaking a 3-month-old baby so badly that it was left blind and brain damaged.
According to reports, 36-year-old John Dobbie was convicted of assault for hitting and shaking the little baby and smashing its head against a surface. The child's name was not released and it is not known who the parents are.
Mallory Loyola, a 26-year-old mom for Tennessee, holds the distinction of being the first woman ever to be charged under a new state law that makes it a crime to take drugs while pregnant. Both Loyola and her newborn tested positive for meth and under the new law a woman can be "prosecuted for assault for the illegal use of a narcotic drug while pregnant." Indeed Loyola, admitted to police that she smoked meth just days before giving birth.
Monore County Sherriff Bill Bivens says, "Hopefully it will send a signal to other women who are pregnant and have a drug problem to seek help. That's what we want them to do." Yeah, if only it were that simple. Unfortunately, I'm not so sure this new law will have the intended effect.
Apparently, three employees of the Discovering Basics day care center in Clermont, Georgia, need to go back to basics themselves. On June 13, a 16-month-old boy named Damon was badly burned while under the so-called "supervision" of day care workers. Rather than treat the child's injuries, the employees panicked and lied about the incident, in turn failing to provide the boy with any medical attention.
His mother, Megan Seabolt, says the burns were not treated until she picked up her child from the center eight hours later. Alarmed, Seabolt raced to the nearest hospital. Her toddler's condition worsened overnight, and he was diagnosed with second and third degree burns, ultimately being treated with skin grafts.Continue Reading >
Former Georgia Tech football star Recardo Wimbush, Sr. and his wife, Therian Wimbush, take the Ten Commandments a bit too seriously. When their 11-year-old son Recardo Jr. stole a DVD player--thereby violating the eighth commandment, "Though Shalt Not Steal"--the fanatically religious parents, who are both in their 30s, decided to punish the child by locking him in their baseument, a small room with barely any furniture and covered-up windows. Unbelievable. And if you think that's bad, read on.Continue Reading >
A drunk mom in Texas was arrested after a pool outing with her kids and her friend's kids. Kisha Young and her friend took their combined six kids earlier this week on Tuesday to the Creekside Community Pool in Crowley, Texas where the family probably had a fun sun-filled day. Nothing wrong yet, right? Well, it seems the moms had a little too much fun drinking while their kids chilled down and when they left on their way back home, 39-year-old Young decided that it would be a really bad idea if her kids and friends' kids rode inside her Chevy Malibu. Well you know what's a worse idea? Making the kids ride on the hood and in the trunk of the car. Of course, this story only gets worse …
When I was 4 or 5 years old, my great grandmother would warn me that, if I continued to suck my thumb, she would put pique on it. The intimidation tactic probably played a part in me quitting the thumb-sucking habit, but here's the key: she never actually put hot sauce on my finger. A 21-year-old Massachusetts man, however, did use hot sauce when dealing with a child--and not just a tiny drop on a thumb. Christopher Delcid poured hot sauce inside the mouth of his girlfriend's 3-year-old child as a sick form of punishment. But what he did afterwards is nothing short of monstrous.
I don't even know where to begin with this story because, to be perfectly honest, I couldn't stomach it. A disgusting 27-year-old New Mexico father is being accused of raping his 8-month-old daughter. The man, Julio Iturralde, is said to have assaulted the infant inside a room at Los Lunas Inn and Suites where he locked out his girlfriend, 25-year-old Jasmin Davis during the attack.
The rape wasn't even the worst part of this terrible story. I'm still trying to process it!
