Rony VeusAPOPKA, FL – Police have charged 23-year-old Rony Veus with the murder of his 1-year-old daughter, saying that he admitted to abusing his daughter because he liked to cause her pain.

Police responding to a home after a 911 call about a girl who wasn’t breathing, found Veus performing CPR on his daughter. He told them he found her not breathing and unconscious.

The infant was rushed to the hospital where she remained in a coma with bleeding on the brain until Saturday when the girl died. Staff told investigators that they suspected the girl had been abused, so investigators interviewed Veus.

During this interview, Veus admitted he has thoughts of harming his daughter and feels relieved when he causes her pain or discomfort. He said he’s acted on these thoughts by pulling her hair, pushing her down, forcing her to eat cinnamon, and burning her with a cigar.

Veus also told police he suffers from depression and schizophrenia and he needs mental help. Veus’ mother said she never thought her son could abuse his daughter, but had suspected something was going on.…

Shayla ShonnekerOREGON CITY, OR – Shayla Shonneker died after her mother’s live-in boyfriend, 32-year-old Joseph Wolters, accidentally shot her has he practiced holstering his loaded gun.

Oregon City police say 9-year-old Shayla Shonneker was playing in her backyard while Wolters was inside the home practicing with his firearm, having recently been hired as an armed security guard with an armored transport company.

As Wolters was holstering and un-holstering his loaded gun, it went off. Out of all the paths this bullet could have traversed, this one traveled through a wall of the home, and into Shonneker’s face 50 yards away.

A LifeFlight helicopter rushed Shonneker to Oregon Health & Science University Hospital, where she died. Wolters, a decorated Iraq War veteran, cooperated with police during an interview with detectives. No word on if he will be facing criminal charges.

Gladstone School District Superintendent Bob Stewart said the district has activated its crisis-response team and has established a safe room for both adults and students at John Wetten Elementary School, where Shayla had been a student since kindergarten.…

Raymond Sean ClarkLong Beach, CA – Raymond Clark, 38, has been arrested after being accused of setting a 63-year-old man on fire in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven.

According to reports, Clark is known in the neighborhood and was seen begging for change in the parking lot of the convenience store moments before he allegedly doused the victim, who was sitting in his vehicle, with a flammable liquid and setting him on fire.

“He’s always outside the 7-Eleven asking for money and smoking cigarettes,” said an unidentified man.

A customer inside the store said that he happened to look up and see Clark “walking on a mission” toward the Toyota 4-Runner the victim was sitting in, and throw what looked like a bottle into the vehicle.

“It was crazy,” he said. “The vehicle went up in flames immediately, just totally engulfed. It was all flames. It became so hot in 7-Eleven that I moved towards the back of the store because I thought the windows were going to blow.”

The victim stumbled out of  his vehicle while witnesses tried using fire extinguishers to put out the flames that had engulfed the victim’s vehicle and had spread to the car parked beside it. …

Courtney HutchinsCarlsbad, NM - Courtney Hutchins, 22, was arrested for child endangerment after climbing over a barricade with her 3 year old son, Ethan, to get a closer look at a bobcat.  Apparently she got a little too close as the bobcat was able to scratch the boy’s head badly enough to require 8 skull staples.

Hutchins, her brother LeeVon, and her son were at Living Desert Zoo & Gardens State Park when they decided to climb over a 40-inch high railing.  Once over the outer barrier, they coaxed the cats to the inner fence and pet them.  A bobcat reached through the chainlink, grabbed the boy’s head and pulled him towards it, inflicting serious head wounds on the 3 year old.

Hutchins told police she did not see any of the many signs warning against being dangerously stupid.  She also said she did not know the word “barrier” before she heard police use it.

Feelings of anger and/or homicidal ideations are a natural first reaction to learning how careless and unconcerned for her own child’s welfare this woman could be. …

Troy FischerLINCOLN, NE – A Nebraska bus driver has been fired after surveillance video captured him delivering a passenger approximately eighteen knuckle sandwiches before dragging the guy off the bus.

Officials in Lincoln announced 43-year-old Troy Fischer had been fired from StarTran Bus Service and has been cited on suspicion of misdemeanor assault. The incident happened in March, and video shows Fischer talking with a lone male passenger.

I couldn’t quite figure out why Fischer was pissed off at the man, but he reportedly called his boss and told them he was having problems with a passenger. He was informed to let the man off voluntarily or call police. Fischer chose not to do either, and can be seen attacking the man who never fights back. After punching the man over a dozen times, Fischer drags him off the bus and leaves him on the side of a road.

Afterwards, Fischer tells his supervisor that he put the passenger off the bus and that “it wasn’t pretty.”

Fischer was initially suspended without pay but was fired after a disciplinary hearing that allowed him to rebut the allegations.…

Donald HughesCHARLOTTE COUNTY, FL – Neighbors say a 50-year-old  Donald Hughes, a convicted sex offender, has been walking around outside his house completely naked. It happened so many times, according to them,  they lost count.

Now Hughes is in jail, facing multiple charges, including probation violations.

One resident who wished to remain anonymous said she got tired of having to look away and reported Hughes to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office.

“He would walk around completely stark naked and not even know he was naked,” she said. Not know? Wonder how she could tell.

The woman told reporters that she was so concerned, she trained her children to come inside whenever they saw him in the backyard. “My six-year-old would run inside and say, ‘Mommy the bad man’s outside,'” she said. “It’s kind of become something that I’m not surprised to see anymore.”

Another witness claims that he saw Hughes sitting on his front porch in only his birthday suit, while children were getting off the school bus. We hope Hughes didn’t wave to them.…

Rodrigo RodriguezChicago, IL – Angela Petrov and Rodrigo Rodriguez have been accused of suffocating their 5-month-old daughter, then placing her limp body in a playpen before having sex.

At around 11 a.m. Friday morning, the couple noticed their daughter, Angelina, was ‘stiff and unresponsive’ inside her playpen. They tried throwing water on the baby’s face and attempted CPR before calling 911. Angelina was taken to the hospital where she is currently on life support.

Doctors would discover that Angelina was suffering from brain swelling, a blown pupil due to a lack of oxygen, and a skull fracture from a past incident. She’s still alive, but currently has limited or no brain activity.

Police interviewed the couple and Rodriguez eventually admitted he and Petrov had been drinking Hennessy in the room where Angelina was sleeping. When the baby woke up and would not stop crying, Rodriguez admitted to employing a method that is fairly effective in getting an infant to stop crying. Or breathing. Or functioning at any level of intelligence higher than a potato.…

Gavin BrummettSALINA, KN — According to Saline County Sheriff Glen Kochanowski, 7-year-old Gavin Brummett died after accidentally shooting himself twice while shooting a gun with his father.

At around 5:45 p.m. Friday, Gavin, his brother and their father were out shooting a Master Piece Arms semi-automatic 9mm handgun. At some point, Gavin’s father said he heard two shots in rapid succession. He turned to see that Gavin had accidentally shot himself two times.

Gavin was rushed to the hospital, then flown by air ambulance to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita, but he would die from his injuries an hour after shooting himself. Investigators they believe Gavin was the one who fired the fatal shots, but their investigation is ongoing and are awaiting the results of an autopsy to be performed today.

Family and friends of the family have created a memorial page on Facebook, as well as a campaign to help raise money to cover the cost of Gavin’s funeral. At the time I write this, they have raised $3,600.

One of the fundraisers organizer’s states, “Every dollar given will allow the Brummett family to take just a little bit longer to be together without the burdens of having to go into work.…

escalatorSeattle, WA – Maurecio Bell, 42, was strangled to death in a drunken mishap on a King County Metro escalator at University Street Station.

Early Sunday morning, Bell was was found unconscious and unresponsive at the bottom of  the escalator after his clothing got snagged and he was subsequently choked to death.

Surveillance video was reviewed and showed Bell, with an open bottle of brandy in his back pocket, staggering and then leaning against the escalator wall as he was riding it down. Near the bottom he loses his balance and falls on his back. Bell made no effort to get up until he got to the bottom, but by that time, it was too late.

Bell can be seen trying to sit up only to find the back of his shirt had gotten caught in the escalator. He is pulled back down and remained that way until he was discovered by a passerby who shut off the escalator and tried to revive him by performing CPR.

“It’s an unfortunate and tragic accident, and we’ve never seen anything like it before,” said King County Metro spokesman Jeff Switzer.…

woman on planeWashington – The FBI have arrested 39-year-old Saurabh Agarwal after they say he molested a sleeping female passenger on an American Airlines flight.

American Airlines Flight 1142 was en route to Virginia from Miami and one passenger, who had fallen asleep, awoke to find Agarwal “hugging her body, with his hand inside her bra, fondling her breast.”

The woman did not say or do anything about Agarwal fondling her tits because she said she was afraid. Instead, she pretended to be asleep as Agarwal continued to milk her udders and “squeezed her nipple.” He only stopped when a flight attendant approached with a refreshment cart. He ordered a scotch then resumed kneading the dough as the woman continued to pretend being asleep.

Finally deciding enough was enough, the woman pretended to wake up. Argawal began making small talk with her as if nothing had happened, but continued to lean into her even though the armrest was between them. She finally left her seat, pretending she had to use the restroom, then went to the back of the plane and told the flight crew what had happened.…

Utchey CabaneFlorida - Police say that after 27-year-old Utchey Cabane raped a woman walking home from work, he apologized for raping her, adding that at least she learned a valuable lesson.

The woman told police she was walking home when she was approached by Cabane, who said he was walking to his job at Walmart. He informed her that it wasn’t a good idea to be walking alone, and offered to accompany her. A short while later, Cabane demonstrated why she should not be walking alone by pulling her off the road into the grass, holding a box-cutter to her throat, and then raping her.

After he was finished, the woman told police Cabane apologized for his actions and told her “she should learn from this situation” and let her leave. She ended up telling a relative what happened shortly afterwards, and they decided to find the woman’s attacker. Surprisingly, they found Cabane in front of a grocery store talking to another woman.

The victim’s relative confronted Cabane and struck him in the face several times before leaving the scene with the victim.…

baby TosserHARTFORD, CT – We posted this video of a woman tossing her baby on our Facebook page the other day, but here’s the story behind it. Police are investigating an incident that took place on a Hartford bus, in which a woman got into an altercation with another passenger and, finding no takers for her, “Motherf#@king  baby,” simply threw the child to an unidentified passenger so she could get her groove on.

The incident was captured on cell phone video, and shows the irate mother engaged in a shouting match with another woman, located several seats away. As passengers watch, the verbal preliminaries grow increasingly heated (no darn, shucks or gollys here), after which the mother, apparently displeased over being disrespected, pitches her infant and heads up the aisle to lay the smackdown on said disrespecttor.

The fight took place on a Connecticut Transit bus at approximately 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, according to David Lee, general manager of Connecticut Transit. The driver , who did not witness the incident (and who must be deafer than Marlee Matlin), did not see the baby get thrown and eventually stopped the bus, which was nearing the end of its route from Albany Avenue to downtown Hartford.…

Pulpit of Doom Podcast 4-11-2013

April 12, 2013 at 11:34 am by  

preacherHere, Now – Nice crowd last night and we appreciate every one of you who stopped by and shot the shit with us while we conducted another Pulpit of Doom podcast. Jaded returned from whatever rehab center she was visiting this month to co-host, and my cursing got progressively worse the drunker I got.

I found out later that some of you were having difficulties hearing the stream, so hopefully the show below will be more listenable. As usual, we discussed the top 10 stories circulating on the site for the last week, including children in hospitals and the fake nurses who molest them, the etiquette of eating a friend when starving and why you should never go camping with me, unsuccessfully drowning your children, dog attacks caused by idiot animal owners, children who commit suicide after snitching, women who shove dildos up their kids’ ass, and much, much more.

We also talked about the suicide of Retheah Parson, where I tried to explain my worries regarding online mob justice a little better than I did in the comments of that article.…

William JohnsonWILLIAMSTON, N.C. – Police have arrested 44-year-old Randall Johnson, accusing him of keeping his girlfriend’s dead body in his bedroom for days, even sharing the bed with her decomposing corpse.

Johnson’s girlfriend, 46-year-old Carla Bagget, was last seen alive on April 3 by her mother, sister and nephew who all lived at the mobile home. The nephew said every time family members asked Johnson if Baggett was going to come out of her room, Johnson would say she was either sleeping or smoking a cigarette.

But by April 6, he says they new something was wrong when they began to smell a foul odor coming from the bedroom. “That Saturday morning, my grandma went in there and said, ‘Randy, I’m sick of this, I’m going to wake my daughter up.’ So she crawled over him and as soon as she touched [Baggett], she said she was cold, stiff and she was gone,” he said.

When police arrived at the home, they found Baggett’s decomposing body in the bed shared by Johnson.…

Audrie PottSanta Clara, CA – Police in California have arrested three 16-year-old boys, accusing them of sexually assaulting 15-year-old Audrie Pott at a party last year. Days later, Audrie would kill herself after photos of the attack began circulating online.

Audrie Pott was attending a house party at a friend’s house in September 2012 with about eight or ten high school students. Alcohol was being consumed and Audrie got so drunk she ended up unconscious in a bedroom. That’s where at least three male teens performed various sexual acts on her.

“Based on what we know, she was unconscious, there were multiple boys in the room with her,” attorney Robert Allard said. “They did unimaginable things to her while she was unconscious.”

During the assault, someone took photos of Audrie which were first spread via cell phones but ultimately ended up on Facebook. Shortly after the incident, Audrie wrote on her Facebook page: “The whole school knows…My life is ruined.” A week later, Audrie took her own life after learning that photos of the sexual assault were being distributed online.…

Eugene MaraventanoGoodyear, AZ – Eugene Maraventano called 911 over the weekend to report he had killed his wife and son four days ago but was having difficulties killing himself.

Police arrived at his home, they found the 64-year-old covered with blood with wounds to his chest. Inside the home, his wife and son were found stabbed to death in separate rooms.

Maraventano told police that he used to “frequented with prostitutes” and thought he had contracted HIV or another disease and passed it on to his wife. When his wife got sick recently, and tests revealed it was not cancer, Maraventano assumed she was suffering from a nasty disease he may have picked up from a whore.

Not wanting his wife to suffer, or possibly not wanting her to find out she was suffering from an STD she contracted from her husband, Maraventano decided he must kill her to end her suffering. So, while she was sleeping, he stabbed her twice with a a 14-inch kitchen knife.

He then decided he must kill his 27-year-old son because he didn’t think he could make it without his parents.…

Rehtaeh ParsonsNova Scotia, Canada – The mother of 17-year-old Rehtaeh Parsons, the teenager who killed herself after allegedly being raped by four boys two years ago, is asking that online lynch mobs please leave the boys linked to the allegations alone, and let the justice system do its job.

Parsons’ mother says her daughter committed suicide after years of being bullied following an alleged rape by four boys when she was 15. A pictures from the incident was circulated online, leading to Parsons being harassed online by her peers.

No charges were ever filed against any of the boys involved, and Parsons mother would use Facebook to post her daughter’s story, blaming her daughter’s suicide on bullies, the justice system, and the four boys who allegedly raped her two years ago. By Wednesday night, an online petition calling for an inquiry into the police investigation had garnered more than 60,000 signatures.

Of course, as is usually the case when supposed injustices are posted online via social networking, people began talking about exacting revenge against the persons they feel are responsible for said injustice.…

goat headCHICAGO, IL – Let it not be said that superstition and lore have no place in modern-day baseball, as evidenced by Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts receiving a package in the mail at Wrigley Field on Wednesday afternoon. The contents? A severed goat’s head.

The goat’s head, in all likelihood, is a reference to the infamous curse of the billy goat, a piece of baseball history that dates back to the 1945 World Series, and an incident in which Sam Sianis, a Cubs fan, was asked to leave a game against the rival Detroit Tigers due to the smell of his billy goat. Lost in years of retelling is whether the goat was the man’s date, or had its own ticket.

According to Julian Green, a team spokesman, a package was dropped at Wrigley Field’s Gate K on Wednesday, addressed to Ricketts. The package was apparently delivered by an unknown person, and did not appear to have been delivered by the USPS. Police were called at around 2:30, when it was determined that officials had on their hands an, “intimidating package.” Bet that was a heckuva phone call.…
