Faith Loftin & Shawn Franklin SUCK

Faith Loftin & Shawn Franklin

Lynchburg, VA–There aren’t a lot of details being released on this particular case but a couple of things are known for sure; Faith Loftin’s 5-year-old son is suffering from 2nd and 3rd-degree burns caused by scalding water, and police believe that Shawn Franklin is the person responsible for causing those injuries.

It has been reported that in late February, Franklin immersed Loftin’s son, back first, into a tub of scalding water, causing the burns to the child’s upper body. The motive behind the abuse is unknown. The child’s mother failed to seek immediate attention for the burns.

The child’s burns were only discovered when an employee from the child’s school grew concerned after the child failed to show up for a week. Police were called to Loftin’s home on February 25 for a welfare check on the child. When confronted about the child’s burns, Loftin tried to pass them off as bug bites. Wow. She’s about as stupid, and scary, as she fuckin’ looks!

Faith Loftin was arrested on a charge of failure to render medical assistance. Police speculate that an entire week had gone by from the time the boy was burned to the time he received medical attention. She was denied bond in a separate juvenile and domestic relations court hearing Wednesday. Her live-in boyfriend, Shawn Franklin, was nowhere to be found.

Franklin was on the run for about two weeks. On the night of March 12, a tip led officers directly to the 26-year-old…the coward was hiding out in someone’s attic. He was arrested and charged with felony abuse, neglect of a child, and malicious wounding.

Of course, his family is coming out in droves to defend the prick. They say there is no way Franklin would hurt a child; it wasn’t him; it was someone else; he will be found innocent…blahblahblah. His mother, Hazel Franklin: ‘He ain’t no saint now but he would never put his hands on nobody’s child or hurt a child. He was good to them, he fed those kids and everything to make sure they ate and everything.’ His brother, Edward Franklin: ‘I know he’s going to get off, I know. I can’t see my brother going down for something he didn’t do.’ His sister, Sharkia Davis: ‘Don’t act different towards him when he comes home because this is some bull, it is not true.’

Regardless of what the family thinks, police are confident they have the right person in custody.

    I for some odd reason I believed my family member didn’t do this, I would still be kicking his ass for running off and not facing things. Even more so for hiding in the attic.

    Kudos to whoever tipped the cops off to where this sorry ass chickenshit was.

  • granny-g

    This child had to be in considerable pain.
    I pray that you feel the pain this child felt ten fold.
    Not just the pain but the fear and desperation he must have felt.
    You are Bad..bad…bad people and do not deserve to have a child.
    I pray that this child is now in loving arms.

  • knotme

    No doubt they think the zombie bitch next to him is “Mother of The Year”, because if they don’t, then ole’ Shawn ain’t all “THAT, now is he? Seeing that he took off like a bat outta Hell and hiding out AWAY from home for 2 weeks, seems he’s not that concerned right now with putting food in those kids’ bellies, now is he? Damn, if you think you losers are gonna pull the wool over a judges eyes with your “he loves those kids” crap, then ole’ Shawn is making fools out of all of you with his Houdini act. A little 5 year old says he did it… damn right, he did!!

  • OnyxRayne

    Hmmm… Passing burn marks for bug bites? How fucking stupid can you get?!? I pray this child has a swift recovery. To that POS’s family… He was fucking hiding out in an attic!!! That alone should tell you he knows he fucked up! I like Granny’s idea for punishment. But use acid instead. Much more painful.

  • buggysmommy

    That bitch is so fucking creepy looking. Her eyes are completely dead!

  • RunecirE

    You are Bad..bad…bad people and do not deserve to have a child.I pray that this child is now in loving arms.

    Second that.

  • MadeaBecBec

    What’s that around the womans mouth? Crack?
    She looks like the person that Dave Chappelle modeled his male version of Crackhead “Tyrone Biggums” after….. So yeah, she is sure that was some big ol’ bugs biting on her baby…….

    Heal, Lil Angel Child, Heal completely, I am praying for you and your caregivers that are seeing after you now!

  • 2 boys mom in NC

    You are both pieces of SHIT!!! Now, come on frien’s and kin’s. Defend his and her ass on here.

    Regardless of what the family thinks, police are confident they have the right person in custody.

    Not unless, this bitch is locked up with him!!!

  • Jury

    She looks like a crack ho.

  • BLZbub

    Ok, no one else has said it so I will: Faith, you nasty-ass, vile, pathetic excuse for a mother, wtf happened to your eyebrows??? Seriouslly, her face looks like a caricature of a human face or something….*shudders*

  • Castille

    How can his family be spouting off this way? The kid is 5, he’s not a baby. Without threats over his head, he can tell police pretty clearly how he came by his injuries.

  • Abroad

    We’ve had morgue photographs in the forums that looked more alive than this woman.

  • Uvgottabkiddin

    ’ His brother, Edward Franklin: ‘I know he’s going to get off, I know. I can’t see my brother going down for something he didn’t do.’

    he might not “get off” but bubba sure will !

    As for the quotes from the other Rhodes Scholars? can you feel the “intelegents” just oozing from them?

  • Abroad

    ’ His brother, Edward Franklin: ‘I know he’s going to get off, I know. I can’t see my brother going down for something he didn’t do.’

    And the brother most likely will be going down, – in the meaning of the expression that his brother is denying, as well as that other one……

  • granny-g

    That woman ??? Looks like she was made by claymation.
    She really looks quite odd.
    As for His family, they must be so very proud.
    It appears that every single one of them graduated the 2nd grade.
    Had they stayed a bit longer they might have learned to speak and spell.

    ROFLMAO. :D

    She looks jaundiced. Either that or she got BAD advice on what make-up she should wear.

  • Kdogg

    Good god, the “mother” looks like one of the monsters from the Hellraiser series

  • Castille

    I thought she was going for a Tia Dalma (of Pirates of the Caribbean) look, only she forgot to bring the pretty.

  • shayshaymomma85

    I have to wonder where are the extended families?

    If I even had the notion of living with a man who harmed my son in any way, my Grandmother would have my head, my mother would have my ass, and my uncles and cousins would have his!

    I know I don’t belong to the last family that gives a shit. So what fucking gives man?

  • HotReadingMama

    But they both look so friendly and law abiding?!

  • biteme

    I have to wonder where are the extended families?

    I know I don’t belong to the last family that gives a shit. So what fucking gives man?

    I always take it for granted there can’t be an extended family or they wouldn’t have let it happen. Than they jump out of the woodwork to defend the abusers, it always blows my mind. WHERE THE HELL WHERE THEY BEFORE!

  • AMinFH

    At least she was denied bond, but the charge of failure to get medical help is weak- she tortured the boy by ignoring his injuries 2nd and 3rd degree burns no less!

    This guy and his family are fking losers this society could very well do without. Coward hiding in someones attic! Yeah, ok IF he didnt do this and was so stand up, why would he leave the boy in dangerous hands of the phantom abuser and not get him help??? Whatever, I HATE families like this! Even his stupid ass mug looks like hes saying WAZ’IN ME?!?

    Burns are thee most painful thing imaginable. That poor child had to endure that pain for a whole week! WTF!

  • MadeaBecBec

    Shawn looks like he’s saying “Why’s I gots to squat and coughs?”, “I ain’t did nuffin’ to dat chile” “Why’s you puttin’ on dem gloves fo?”

    Oh wow, so he was bad ass enough when he placed that poor child in scalding water. Just not bad ass enough to face the music. COWARD PIECE OF HORSE SHIT.

    That woman ??? Looks like she was made by claymation.She really looks quite odd.As for His family, they must be so very proud.It appears that every single one of them graduated the 2nd grade.Had they stayed a bit longer they might have learned to speak and spell.

    Hehehehe, yeah really. I had to take a second look. The way the family is defending him, leads me to believe they are turds too.

  • penelopejo

    She has to either give great head or great sex cause anyone that would want to be with that is just nuts……

  • Janelle

    But they both look so friendly and law abiding?!

    Thanks for the laugh. :-)

  • dammitall

    FUCK! When those mugshots came up, I jumped back! They look like something out of Tales of the Crypt.

    I hope the family members who are so eager to declare Franklin’s innocence are willing to have him care for them when they’re incapacitated. Or see if they’d trust their helpless children to him, but the poor kids don’t deserve that shit.

  • thismomrocksx3

    Wish I could say that this story shocks me, that I have never heard of anything like this happening before. These stories make me wish for just a few minutes alone with these folks!!!

    I too would love to know where these “wonderful family members” were when this child needed support (instead they reserve that for this piece of shit).

    “If I even had the notion of living with a man who harmed my son in any way, my Grandmother would have my head, my mother would have my ass, and my uncles and cousins would have his!”

    AMEN!!! I have 5 uncles and believe me they would love to get their hands on these two. I assure you that our precious tax dollars would not be spent prosecuting.

    Baby boy….please be well and may you someday very soon know what it is like to be given hugs and love and encouragement and kissed goodnight.

  • http://www.myspace.com/dneil73 Dneilz

    I hate these 2 pieces of shit…. that poor neglected and mistreated little boy. Thanks mom, for giving a fucking shit about your own child. The two of you can rot in hell. You aren’t worth the air you fucking breath. I wish nothing but the worst for the two of you! Enjoy the burning flames from hell….and when you are fucking hurting from the pain, remember what you did to this innocent child. FUCKERS

  • lamexcore

    Well obviously she couldn’t tell the authorities or get help for her child, then her man would have been taken away and that is probably how she got her CRAAACK.

  • biteme

    guess frankllin could tell us what it’s like to fuck kermit on crack

  • lingling

    these ppl will burn in hell far worse than the burn injuries caused to this poor little baby!! if i were the mother,brother, or sister of this fuckin sorry ass man, the last thing id do is defend him!! id pour gasoline on both these sick fucks so theyd burn to death and then fry in hell!!!!!!!!

  • Unamused Cat

    That woman looks like a zombie. =O.O= I guess they are real.

  • Zibarro

    His mother, Hazel Franklin: ‘He was good to them, he fed those kids and everything to make sure they ate and everything.’ His brother, Edward Franklin: ‘I know he’s going to get off, I know. I can’t see my brother going down for something he didn’t do.’ His sister, Sharkia Davis: ‘Don’t act different towards him when he comes home because this is some bull, it is not true.’

    Damn near every adult featured here fed their kids (with the exception of those accused of starving them). That never stopped an abuser from abusing. The fact that someone buys groceries and feeds their kids does NOT mean they won’t hurt them. Hell, if that were the case, almost all the kids featured here would have starved to death before these asshats could have ever done any more harm to them! WTF kind of logic is his momma applying here?? Dumb bitch!

    Edward? Your brother isn’t “going down for something he didn’t do”… he is going down for something he damn sure DID do.

    And Shakira…. you gonna ask him to give your baby’s a bath anytime soon?

    One big, stupid, ignorant, backwards, pathetic family. Drain the gene pool – someone done pissed in it again!

  • granny-g

    Maybe one day (yea dreamin again) people that find that a penis or a drug has overcome their need to parent their children they will simply call some caring folks, and have the children removed.
    They will just say “hey why should I expend all of my energy on little Johnny, I could be out scoring some crack” and they will call to have the children taken to loving caring homes.
    Reality has set in…………because there are a million of the stupid sick fuckers that feel that having food stamps-and a check is what parenting is all about, more kids more $$$$$.
    I hope the both of you nasty fuckers have been fixed. Spayed /nutered/castrated nothing is too good for the like of you two special folks.

  • granny-g

    One big, stupid, ignorant, backwards, pathetic family. Drain the gene pool – someone done pissed in it again!

    ROFLMAO !

  • easilydistracted

    I can’t even imagine how much pain that little boy must have been in. I burned my hand once while frying chicken fried steak. I was pushing down on the steak with a spatula and the wooden handle of the spatula broke off (no more wooden spatulas for me!) and hot grease splashed all over the top of my hand. It was SO painful. I had to stick my hand down in ice water just to relieve the pain.

    I can’t imagine how much pain he would have been in after going that long without medical help. Damn…

  • Castille

    Seriously, if it were that easy, more people *would* do it. And if you’ll recall the uproar over Nebraska’s short lived safe haven law, there is much outrage if it actually becomes that easy to do, and people do it.

  • nagasama

    K-RACK!

  • Diamonds_and_Rust

    Shawn Franklin running away wouldn’t have helped his case. If he didn’t do it, why would he run from the police in the first place?

    His relatives needs braincells

  • MadeaBecBec

    Are the Franklins and the Chisms related or What?

    A 5-year-old boy police believe was burned over much of his back by the man he called “daddy” testified against him during a preliminary hearing Tuesday afternoon.

    The boy, using mostly one-word answers, testified defendant Shawn Franklin of Lynchburg burned him with water in a bathtub at the boy’s home.
    [...]

    Scott De Bruin, Franklin’s lawyer, argued that the boy’s testimony was not credible. In Tuesday’s hearing, the boy testified that his mother was in jail when he was burned and that he never spoke to a police officer about the burning, De Bruin said.

    Lynchburg Police Department Investigator J.T. Lloyd, though, testified that the boy did talk to him and that his mother was home when he was burned.
    [...]

    Lloyd testified he interviewed the boy at the university hospital on March 6. During that interview, he testified, the boy first told him his injuries were caused by bug bites.

    Then he blamed his brothers, Lloyd said. In the last version of his story, he said, the boy blamed Franklin.

    Lloyd also testified that he interviewed Franklin on March 11 after he was arrested. He said Franklin denied injuring the boy, but said he noticed the injuries and did not seek medical care.

    Lloyd said Franklin told him he didn’t seek help because he was wanted on a felony credit card forgery charge and was avoiding police.

  • Haley Callahan

  • Eracsurfer

    Everything is a lie huh? So the child faked 2nd & 3rd degree burns?

    This asshat wasn't on the run for 2 weeks? He didn't hide in the attic?

    Even if this bitch was the only one to harm this child, this PRICK had an obligation to the (let me make this plain) 5 YEAR OLD CHILD!!! He lived there. Why didn't he get help for the little one?

    You know why?

    Because the best part of him rolled off of his momma's chin!

    Posted on January 11, 2010
    “A mistrial was declared Monday in the case against a man accused of burning a 5-year-old boy by bending him backward over a tub of scalding water.

    Shawn Lamont Franklin, 26, faces charges of aggravated malicious wounding and felony child neglect.

    A three-day jury trial was scheduled to begin Monday morning, and a jury was seated. However, after opening statements by both attorneys, two jurors realized that they had heard about the case through news reports.

    Jurors were questioned about their knowledge of the case during selection, but neither had come forward then.

    The two jurors indicated that they had issues with the case when questioned by Judge J. Leyburn Mosby — one stated that what she had heard in news coverage “bothered” her, and the other had issues with a 5-year-old having to testify.

    The trial has been rescheduled for Feb. 1.

    Faith Loftin, the boy’s mother and Franklin’s girlfriend, was sentenced in September to 15 months in prison for felony child neglect for ignoring the boy’s burns for nearly a week.

    Senior Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Janell Johnson said in opening statements the defendant took a belt and whipped the boy before taking him upstairs and dipping him in scalding water after becoming angry that the boy had told a “secret.” The details of the secret were not revealed.”

  • Haley Callahan

    shawn franklin wouildnt hurt da little boy.. the little boy changed his story 4 times tha last time he said my cousin did it so b4 u start runnin ur mouth get all ur facts!!!!!!!!!

  • Eracsurfer

    So, you are expecting consistency from a 5 year old? You are bat-shit crazy!

    So I repeat…

    Even if this bitch was the only one to harm this child, this PRICK had an obligation to the (let me make this plain) 5 YEAR OLD CHILD!!! He lived there.

    Why didn't he get help for the little one?

    Even if he didn't do the act, he is guilty for not getting the child help, which is JUST AS BAD!!!

  • Eracsurfer

    By the way…do innocent people often hide in attics?

  • Haley Callahan

    like i said he wouldnt hurt the lil boy… my cousin wouldnt so let d b***h rot……….

  • Eracsurfer

    And…..Like I asked… Why the FUCK didn't he get the boy HELP? Instead he ran off and hid in an attic!

    Let them both rot!

  • melissa6801

    For your information Shawn was not living with this chick when the little boy got burned! I know this personally and if you were a BLACK man running from a bunch of WHITE police officer when they have already found you guilty you would hide too!!!!!

  • Eracsurfer

    You racist FUCK! You make me sick!

    I suppose in the 2 weeks he was playing hide and seek, he was able to come up with an alibi? No?

    Wow, you “personally” know that he wasn't living there huh? I'm sure he would have appreciated your “evidence”. You know, cause if he wasn't living there, he would have had no reason to hide for TWO FUCKING WEEKS!

  • Slim

    Dumb cunt. You need to fucking die along with your lowlife cousin and that whore

  • Slim

    He is 5!!!!!!! 5 year olds tend to say different things when they’re scared and nervous. After what that piece of shit put him through, you really don’t think he would be scared about what he might do if he told on him? Ignorant ass bitch
