MARION COUNTY, FL – Police have arrested a 68-year-old man for sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl he says was asking for it.

The incident happened last July when Sydney “Dread” Markland allegedly lured the girl into his home by asking her help him carry food into his house.

Once inside, Markland sexually assaulted the little girl, police say, adding that DNA samples taken from the girl’s clothing matched Markland’s.

When questioned, Markland admitted to the assault but said the girl was dressed provocatively and that her actions suggested she wanted wanted some of his lovin’. Markland added that in his culture, his actions with the girl were totally acceptable.


Police believe Markland might have sexually assaulted other children in his neighborhood and are asking anyone with information about other possible victims to call Detective Daniel Pinder at 352-368-3508 or Crime Stoppers at 352-368-STOP.

  • fucking Nasty fuck

  • This is a animal and should be killed

  • Old Man Metal

    Damn, Dread, you and your culture are makin’ no sense. And shave that shit, please.

    “Police believe Markland might have sexually assaulted other children in his neighborhood”
    Ya think?

  • Poor little girl. Bad enough to be sexually assaulted at 8 years, but by this disgusting monster?!?!

  • Rebelclown

    Ewe Ewe Ewe. That’s the grossest thing I’ve heard all day. This is the kind of crap I’m talking about. We need to bring back public execution for fuck-tards like this. Hopefully they would discourage future would be fuck-tards from doing the same thing.

  • Shoot it.

  • Why don’t people watch their little kids?!


    And what culture is that ?? Please, enlighten those of us, who are still living in the dark ages, oh wise one. (p.s. please take a bath. even the flies think you nasty).

  • Floritard. What is wrong with that place?!

  • And not only that but then insult her by implying she wanted him? Oh, puke.

  • Yes lets blame the vicitms…idiot!!

  • The victim is the 8 year old girl

  • What a nasty ass looking POS. That poor girl will be terrorfied for the rest of her life and to say she was asking for it. I don’t think by looking at him ANYBODY would want it from him. Wonder when was the last time he showered? Hope he gets his ass beat everyday in prison.

  • Can you imagine what his hair smells like?

  • PhukdNtheHead

    Pedophillia is a disease that can only be cured with a bullet

  • No shit!! You’re balming the parents (who are also victims) because you think they don’t watch their kids.

  • As a child my father called FL “the garbage can of the south” lol

  • Umm I don’t just “think” they don’t
    I KNOW they don’t
    If they did their 8 year old would not be talking to strangers and would not be being lured into a stranger’s home and sexual assaulted

  • And as far as I’m concerned these parents are NOT victims they are facilitators

  • Idiot, ever heard of grooming??? Do you know that most kids that get molested or abused have it done by someone close to them? Family members, school teachers, close friends. Get your head out of your ass.

  • sweetd

    What culture is that exactly?

  • sweetd

    Good thing no ones asking you.

  • BG

    WTF?!? Blame the child’s family, not the freak that assaulted her? Nice… really nice.

  • BG

    Poor thing, attacked by a real, live monster.

  • Inferus

    Are we sure those dreads aren’t malignant? The guy is surely brain damaged.

  • GGMon

    There was actually a story years ago where a sex offender was being released. The same day he’s being released, everyone, from prosecution to family members were begging that he not be released because he was a legit danger to society. Not long after he’s released he goes to the library, spots a child who happened to be directly behind his mother as she was using the computers, grabs the child without her noticing and molested him.
    Don’t you fucking tell me that this child, this mother, and everyone else have to be responsible for these fuckwats who need to fuck kids. Fuck off you cunt

  • Inferus

    NAMBLA, man. They turn men into boys…literally!

  • Inferus

    If ever I could smell someone through a photo…

  • Inferus

    I think he confused GTA IVs hot coffee with reality.

  • Jesse Kretkowski

    I didn’t know pedophilia is a culture

  • patrickdh10

    I bet In that same culture this molester purports to come from the father of the 8 year old would cut his perverted effing head off.

  • Hunter1031

    Unfortunately some cultures accept this behavior. Monsters! All of them.

  • Leslie Mashmann

    PIG ! PIG ! PIG ! Self – rightous garbage, not fit for the human race. This little girl will be traumatized for a long time if not forever. Guess she knows now that monsters do exist.

  • 1DireWolf

    Well, in MY culture, skinning him alive is perfectly acceptable.

  • 1DireWolf

    They shouldn’t HAVE to watch their kids in their own neighborhood. Do they have to lock them up in the house 24/7? The blame lies solely on Dead-Head Dread and nowhere else.

  • Josh

    If the boogey monster hides under her bed, I’d make him pay rent.

  • Josh

    Cunt = can’t understand normal thinking.

  • Josh

    The internet replaced the white windowless van parked near the school.

  • Mazikeen666

    Wtf,,u ugly horse, lock him up ,thk god the lil girl told her parents,

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    Poor little girl. She’ll see that face in her nightmares every night. I would pay to put this son of a bitch in the ground.

  • 40% of children that get molested are molested by a child of friend or Neighbor. I didn’t see anywhere in this article that he was a stranger.

  • scotsims

    I see your point, but aren’t some of the worst ones when they look like daddy, mommy, brother, the reverend, teacher, etc?

  • scotsims

    I think throwing them in prison with murderers who hate his kind might be better. He’ll suffer more.

  • scotsims

    Actually 3 out of 4 victims know their abuser = 75%.

  • ??????? smh

  • Josh

    73% of statistics are made up on the spot. =)

  • measyou

    Thankfully, this is the USA (even if it is Florida)!! Where he may never see a glimpse of freedom again. I don’t give a fuck if “it’s ok” where he comes from. Welcome to America, bitch. We will bury you.

  • Taster’sChoice

    I’m so using that elsewhere. lol.

  • Diva of Destruction

    Fuck this guy he stole a little girls innocence then he tried to lay the blame at her door because she was dressed sexy or whatever. Hang him from a tree with His own dreads

  • Valkyrie Ziege

    ; This never would have happen if we picked our own cotton.

  • Ann Roh

    Right? I keep asking myself if Floridian stupidity is a culture now. I vote we do this to his genitals.

  • Ann Roh

    I use that line anytime I hear someone quoting a stat…LMAO.

    Don’t feed the trolls.

    Black people never take personal responsibility. Thank you Democrats.

  • Sexy af

  • dumwise

    So what culture does he claim???????

  • jansav

    Poor little girl. I would like to know what his culture is. If his actions are totally acceptable in that culture then of course he has assaulted more children.

  • CD

    Yeah, because you can watch your 8 year old 24/7. That’s humanly possible.

  • CD

    I remember that library story. It was around the same time that a boy was assaulted in his own back yard.

  • CD

    You must have one ugly soul.

  • Big Stan

    Sexy clothes? What the actual fuck does an 8 year old wear that would be considered sexy in any way? He is lucky he is so ugly because he wont be getting bubbas balls slapping against his chin in prison. He will just have to deal with daily beatings.


    Florida … America’s wang …


    Hot garbage and fly shit, I imagine.

  • Big Stan

    I beg to differ. There is stomping, stabbing, decapitating, drowning (revive and repeat).. Endless ways this guy could die and take a long time doing so.

  • Josh

    Is my shirt inside out, the side that says I care?

    We need to find out what his culture is — send him back — get all the little girls out of the culture.

  • D. Tate

    See, this is why we need to throw out the “She was asking for it, wearing such skimpy clothes” argument. It’s an insult to men to say they can’t help assaulting somebody, as though they haven’t got any self-control or any ability to make their own decisions. I don’t care if she’s walking down the street without a stitch on; if a man assaults her, it’s his decision. Maybe you couldn’t help looking if her fashion choices are unusually skimpy and/or unfortunate. But sexual assault? Rape? Heck no. I happen to know a lot of decent men, and they’re human beings, not animals who can’t help acting on instinct. If I were a guy I’d be insulted at the very idea that I couldn’t control myself just because of what some woman was wearing.

  • Akari

    I’m just glad there aren’t a crap load of liberals/sjw’s in here defending his “illness” & telling everyone it’s not his fault.
