Rippin’ It Up

February 3, 2010 at 3:26 am by  

Litchfield, CT – In Rip Torn’s mind, he arrived home after a night of moderate drinking. In reality, he broke through a bank window totally shitfaced and armed with a loaded gun! The 78-year-old actor from movies like “Men In Black” and “Dodgeball” even placed his boots and hat next to the door as he would in his own house. Police say they found him wandering around “nearly incoherent,” and when they attempted to take Torn into custody, he kept asking them why they were taking him out of his home. Police also found a .22 revolver in his pocket and booze on his breath –  his blood-alcohol content was 0.203 percent, which is more than twice the legal limit for driving in Connecticut. After being charged with criminal trespass, carrying a gun without a permit, carrying a gun while intoxicated, burglary, and criminal mischief, Rip is reportedly going into a NY rehab this week.

Trapped In The Closet

February 3, 2010 at 3:19 am by  

BROWNSVILLE, Texas – Alfredo and Leticia Ines were worried that their 12-year-old daughter would steal food from the refrigerator.  So they did the logical thing and talked to her reasonably – oh wait, it was actually the exact opposite of that! They locked the girl in a closet with “no light and minimal contact with the world.” With no electricity and no heat, the preteen used a bucket for a toilet, which she was forced to clean everyday. She was released only to go to school, and she did her homework by the light that crept in underneath the locked closet door. Thankfully, one of the girl’s three brothers told school officials, who investigated the claims.  When police came to their Texas home, they found the girl trapped in the closet, so malnourished that she looked “more like an 8 or 9-year-old than a child of 12.” Leticia, 40, and Alfredo, 41, were each charged with second-degree injury to a child and unlawful restraint. Bond has been set at $275,000.…

It’s A Man, Baby

January 28, 2010 at 3:52 am by  

Athens-Clarke, GA – The attacker stalked his 17 year old victim along the East Athens street; it was 6:30pm, and the teen realized what was happening and began to walk faster. This is when the man, described as a “fat Hispanic man who wore a gray hoodie and sweatpants”, grabbed the teen and dragged them into the woods nearby.  They  fought in the brush, with the attacker “kicking him repeatedly,  ripping at the young person’s clothing, pulling off shirts and flinging shoes into the shrubs – but when the attacker got to the victim’s pants, he realized he’d made a mistake, and the teen he thought would be his female rape victim was actually a man as well! The victim had been dressed as a woman. The attacker ran when the victim’s cell phone rang, and fortunately witnesses had already called 911. Police found the young boy crying in the rain, with no sign of the attacker. “It doesn’t matter that (the victim) wasn’t a female,” Athens-Clarke Captain of Police said.…

Cyber Bullying Victim Hangs Herself

January 28, 2010 at 3:33 am by  

MASS – Phoebe Prince was a young girl who emigrated from Ireland to America last fall. Months later, on Jan 14th, the 15 year old was found dead after she had hung herself in her Massachusetts home. Only after this gruesome death has the truth about how she was treated as a high school freshmen begin to come out. On a Facebook page made in her honor, her family was surprised to see rude and even taunting comments posted about her. Classmates also started to admit that Phoebe was being harassed  and “bullied constantly” via text messages and Facebook posts.  The school admits they were aware, to an extent, that Phoebe was having problems; in a letter to the parents, the South Hadley High principle wrote “These disagreements centered on relationship and dating issues. School personnel immediately intervened . . . and both counseled and provided consequences as the situations required. It is what happened after those incidents were over that is cause for significant concern.’’ Perhaps Phoebe’s sad suicide and the attention it’s getting can prevent other teens from the same fate – but are schools prepared to deal with cyber bullying?…

TOLEDO, Ohio – People frequently claim that we are losing our humanity, and generally I would disagree, but stories like this one make me throw up my hands in defeat. An unnamed 26 year old woman was walking down the street in broad daylight when she was attacked by 15 year old Anferney Fontenet. Anferney pulled a pair of scissors on the woman and threatened to cut her if she screamed- then proceeded to rape her in public. Cars drove by, beeping their horns, and apparently a few motorists called 911 – but not a single driver nor citizen walking on that street even stopped as the woman was sexually assaulted. Anferney stole the woman’s cell phone as he fled the scene of the crime. Police have said that perhaps people didn’t realize they were witnessing a rape, that perhaps they thought it was consensual- but perhaps at least ONE person could have stopped to make sure! “I’m ticked off because people were doing nothing. Just driving by. What kind of humans are we becoming?”, the victim said to a local newspaper.…

PORTERVILLE, CA – Firefighters pulled three children, ages 6, 5 and 2,  out of a third floor apartment this weekend as smoke came “pouring out” of the door from food that had been left on the stove. You might be asking yourself “Where are the damn parents?”- They were lying on the floor of the apartment, dead from gunshot wounds to the head. Details are vague as to what exactly happened, but police have ruled the incident a “murder-suicide”; Michael Vasquez, 26, apparently shot his wife and mother of his children, Cheanna Sidhu, 24, directly in the head after an argument. The single gunshot killed her instantly, and Michael turned the weapon on himself. The couple had just recently moved into the Porterville Family Apartments with their three children; officials at the apartment complex declined to be interviewed but neighbors claim that despite one incident of yelling, the couple was rarely heard fighting. This has made it difficult for police to understand a motive for this seemingly impulsive crime.…

The Box (2009)

January 14, 2010 at 8:27 am by  

SKYWAY,  WA – A 22 year old man – if you use the term “man” loosely – has been arrested for a string of rapes in the Skyway area of Washington, possibly using Craigslist to lure women to his apartment. Three rapes occurred in the last few months;  on December 9th, two women responding to an ad for a “nude model” were sexually assaulted. On December 20th, a woman responding to a similar ad was forced into sexual acts at knife point in a car. Another woman experienced the same crime on January 7th; responding to a nude model ad, she found herself with a knife at her throat, her attacker forcing her to drive around then perform sexual acts on him. He also stole her ID, bank card and cell phone, threatening to find her if she told anyone what had happened.  The 26 year old victim did not heed his warning however, and police were able to lift a fingerprint from her car that led to the arrest of her attacker. …

UNITED STATES – The US Justice Department released a report yesterday detailing the truth about youth prisons- about 12% (1 in8) of juveniles are raped and sexually abused while in correctional facilities. More than half of the kids held in these types of jails are under the age of 16- and the abuse isn’t just coming from fellow inmates. It’s also at the hands of the prison staff, with 80% of abused juveniles reporting that their facilities staff members had raped or sexually abused them. In addition to these outrageous numbers, 65% of the inmates said they had been abused in their current facility as well as past locations! Bisexual and homosexual juveniles reported the most abuse; the documentation says that these inmates are 10 times more likely to be sexually abused then their heterosexual counterparts. Now, obviously these kids made mistakes, some of them very serious, that landed them in these facilities- but this report details intense, violent and appalling cracks in our prison system, with far reaching sexual abuse of minors being the norm!…

Artie Lange’s Suicide Attempt

January 10, 2010 at 11:48 am by  

HOBOKEN, NJ– Actor and comedian Artie Lange, best known for his time on the Howard Stern show, drove a 13 inch kitchen knife into his stomach nine times in a violent and bloody suicide attempt. His mother found him lying on the floor of his house last week, unconscious but still alive. He was taken to Jersey Medical Center where doctors performed surgery on the obviously troubled Lange. Six of the wounds are being called “hesitation wounds”, while the other three went very deep into his body. There has been no statement from Lange, who’s battled with depression and addiction issues in the past. A spokesperson for Lange confirmed that the star has been discharged, but refused to comment on his condition.…

Missouri – First, James McNeely was kidnapped. Then his hands and feet were bound with duct tape. Then the 20 year old was tortured on a dirty mattress in the basement of a residential home in Laddonia. The details of his ordeal are gruesome – his attackers kicked him, beat him, terrorized him with weapons. They tied James to a chair and wrapped wire around his throat, and in the end, used a trash bag to suffocate the young man. When they were done torturing and killing him, they wrapped James’ body in a tarp and threw it on a refrigerated truck, where it was discovered by police on Dec 22. Who’s responsible for this terror? Eight people – EIGHT! – have been charged in connection to this case, the first being Chester Harvey Jr., who held his wife and children hostage in a standoff before finally being taken in by police. His wife, Angela, and 19 year old son, Chad, were also arrested for murder, and three other men and two juveniles are being charged.  …

Gallatin County, ILL- Residents were surprised when small town Sheriff Raymond Martin was arrested on drug charges; the 20 year policeman was caught in a large scale marijuana distribution ring, where him and his “source” were selling about 20lbs of weed on a biweekly basis. However, that surprise pales in comparison to the community’s shock when Martin’s wife, Kristina Martin, and son, Cody Martin, were arrested while visiting him in prison. The charge? Murder-For-Hire! The entire family got in on this cop’s corruption when they collaborated with two men, “identified as Kevin B. and Thomas H.”, to plot murder- and the victims were to be witnesses in Daddy’s drug trial! Now all three are locked up with a bond of one million bucks each, set to appear in court today (Tuesday). Interestingly enough, Martin remains sheriff and continues to draw on his $40,000 a year salary. Gallatin County is on top of it, though – they have written Martin a letter, urging him to resign.…

Little Rock, AR- Salvation Army Major Philip Wise had planned to spend Christmas Eve with his 3 kids at the North Little Rock community center. Instead, he became the victim of a robbery turned violent murder when two men, whom the police describe as “black males, both armed with handguns”, approached Wise and demanded money. As they fled, they shot him to death in front of his children, aged 4, 6 and 8. The crime was also witnessed by his wife from inside the center who called 911 immediately. Philip Wise was rushed to the hospital, but died in what has been called “a tragedy for the community.”  Services were held the Saturday after Christmas with many family members and Little Rock residents still in shock. Police are still looking for the two suspects, offering $10,000 for information that can lead to an arrest.


Saranac Lake, NY- Part time teacher and full time asshole Michael J. Scaringe is being charged with first degree rape of a 13 year old girl. Police haven’t released too many details, but the attack occurred a few days before Christmas in the Town of Harrietstown. The victim, a regular at the town’s community center, told her parents about the incident, which led to to his capture. To add insult to injury, Michael’s attorney has dismissed the reliability of his victim, telling one newspaper “Police only acted on a mere accusation by a 13-year-old individual.” The attorney also claims that Michael has no prior arrests, however many other newspapers have reported that in 1995, Michael, possibly under the name Josephson, was arrested for the molestation of a 14 year old student in Florida. He was acquitted on those charges when that attorney made a similar argument that the student had fabricated the story. If Michael is convicted, he faces eight to twenty five years in prison.  Is Michael just the innocent victim of repeated teenage angst?…

ATLANTA, Georgia – As 4-year-old Marquel Peters lay bleeding to death on the floor of his church on New Years Eve, his mother and about 150 other members of the Church of God of Prophecy tried to understand what had happened; even the police who arrived on the scene thought that some kind of debris had fallen from the ceiling and struck the child. That is until the autopsy, when medical examiners found a bullet lodged in the young boy’s head! The incident is being chalked up to “celebratory gunfire” being shot in the air. Investigators believe that the bullet came from an AK-47 and could have been shot from someone as far as 3 miles away. Family are asking for the shooter to come forward, but it is unlikely the person even knows what has happened. Out of all the people God could have smote in the New Year, He chose a 4 year old in a church? Must be part of that whole “mysterious ways” work ethic.…

CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. – Details are sketchy when it comes to the standoff between the Christiansburg sheriff department and 35-year-old Michael Potts. Police officers say they pleaded with Michael, who held his daughter hostage in his truck after a domestic dispute call on New Years Eve. After an hour of negotiations with the man, who was allegedly threatening to hurt the 2 year old girl, police shot him right in front of her after he put his vehicle in reverse and began backing towards officers. Michael’s family isn’t so quick to believe the scenario, with his stepmother telling The Roanoke Times that he was a man who “loved his kids” and spent all of his free time with them. The rest of the family was too upset to comment; the entire situation is under investigation and the deputy who fired the shot is currently on administrative leave. Is this a case of an abusive dad or an abuse of police power?…
