In The Mean Time...
ORLANDO, Fla. – Officials say a woman angry about her daughter being bullied on Facebook, walked into her kid’s middle school and struck a student before instructing her daughter to fight.
The incident happened Tuesday morning at Lockhart Middle School where 30-year-old Leslie Thomas allegedly entered and struck a student near the cafeteria. She then told her daughter to fight the other girl, preventing others from stopping the brawl once it started, even striking another child in the process.
Thomas was arrested on charges of that included child abuse and battery. Her children have been removed from her and placed in the care of relatives. In the video attached to the link above, a reporter asks Thomas if she struck a child but you can’t hear her response because of a really long beep.
This isn’t the first bullying story we have posted where a mother encourages her daughter to fight while also getting in a few licks of their own. Daphne Melin, Chesica White, and Latena Fitzgerald are just a few mothers who, like Thomas, were frustrated over bullying and tried stopping it in the dumbest ways imaginable.…
Rockwell, NC — Don’t ya just hate it when you get all sh*tfaced, break into someone’s home, eat their cookies and fall asleep in their bed and the homeowner and the cops are all up in your face trying to kill your buzz with their questions and handcuffs? What? Don’t act like it’s never happened to you….
Anyway, 26-year-old Ashley Haithcock, my new BFF, knows what I’m talking about…she found herself in a similar situation Friday evening.
Police received a call from one Martha Birtch at about 10:00 Friday night. Birtch told police she had returned home to find her sliding glass door open and broken cookie jar in the kitchen. When she entered her home, she heard a woman’s voice coming from the direction of her bedroom. The voice belonged to Haithcock – she had apparently fallen asleep in Birtch’s bed after consuming the woman’s cookies.
Roused from her drunken slumber, an unhappy Haithcock apparently argued with Birtch and her daughter, and at some point, assaulted the younger Birtch.
She still had a bit of that piss and vinegar in her system when police arrived – she reportedly kicked three deputies when they attempted to speak to her.…
Fort Myers, FL — Elijah Paul Love, 24, was arrested Saturday after police say he violently attacked his girlfriend in the parking lot of the Lee County Courthouse when she arrived to pick him up from jail. Because, you know, nothing says, “Thanks for the ride, babe!” quite like an ass kickin’.
Autumn Livingston, Love’s live-in girlfriend of five whole months, told police the recently released Love just “went crazy” after the two argued in the parking lot.
First, she said, Love threw her keys across the lot. When she exited the vehicle to retrieve them, Love allegedly grabbed her by the back of the neck and slammed her into the car. Love, with a cast on his arm, then reportedly proceeded to get all choky – putting the woman in a headlock and using his cast to take her breath away. Love’s a bitch, eh?
After a quick jab to Love’s nuts, the woman was able to break free and make a run for it. She ran toward the courthouse entrance and Love took off running across the street.…
Winnepeg, Canada – Two Canadian men arrested for torturing a man in an effort to get his bank card PIN have pleaded guilty during jury selection. In doing so, Harvey Maytwayashing and James Beardy, both 48, will avoid trial. It may have been an interesting one.
Maytwayashing and Beardy were among six people arrested in January 2006. Crown attorney Brian Wilford said the 59-year-old victim had been drinking at a bar where he met Clara Dorion and her daughter Melanie Azure-Cook. Wilford said the man bought them drinks and gave them money for drugs and later accepted an invitation to Dorion’s home. When they arrived, the victim was grabbed by the women’s accomplices, stripped naked, and robbed of his bank card.
The man reportedly gave them a PIN number. The man’s attackers then attempted to use the bank card at a nearby gas station, only to find the man had given them a bogus PIN. They returned and, according to the court, the torture began.
It was reported that the attackers made repeated attempts to extract the money – and repeated attempts to extract the PIN.…
CLEVELAND, OH — Police have arrested a man, accusing him of shoving a baby wipe down his infant’s throat.
Joshua Rains, 25, was arrested Wednesday at the MetroHealth Medical Center and charged with felony child endangerment after his eight-week-old son had to have a baby wipe surgically removed from his throat.
Rains told police that while changing the child’s diaper he wiped his son’s mouth with a baby wipe only to notice the wipe had disappeared. Once he figured out his little shop-vac had swallowed the wipe, he said he tried to pull it out, but only succeeded in jamming it further down the baby’s throat.
Police are calling bullshit and say his description of events doesn’t jive with the baby’s injuries. The baby’s current condition is unknown, but he was on life support on Saturday. Interesting to note, this isn’t the infant’s first visit to the hospital for an injury. At five days old he was treated for a detached eye lens, and I just shuddered while typing that.…
Illinois – Last Friday, 10-year-old Ashlynn Conner was found dead inside her closet where she had hanged herself with a scarf. Her family says bullying is to blame.
Her mother told reporters that Ashlynn, an honor roll student at Ridgefarm Elementary, had been bullied relentlessly at school and by kids in the neighborhood. Nothing physical, just emotional bullying consisting mostly of name calling.
“Ashlynn’s ugly, look Ashlynn’s ugly. She’s fat. They’d call her a slut,” her mother said.
Last Thursday Ashlynn told her mother she’d been picked on all day at school by three girls and asked if she could be home-schooled. Her mother told her ‘no’ and that she would speak to the principal about it on Monday. The next day, while most kids were enjoying a day off for Veteran’s Day, Ashlynn went inside her hanging in her closet.
Her older sister found her after the family realized they had not seen or heard from Ashlynn since her mother had overheard her talking with a classmate on the phone a half-hour before, detailing the girls at school picking on her and the fact that her mother would not let her be home-schooled.…
SAN ANTONIO, TX – A man in Texas is facing criminal charges after his infant son was burned with hot cheese from inside a Pizza Pocket.
Police say 32-year-old Lionel Brown was arguing with the baby’s mother while microwaving a pizza pocket. The argument escalated to the point that Brown went after the woman, who was holding their 3-month-old son, and attempted to smash the pizza pocket in her face.
In doing so, scalding hot cheese oozed out of the pizza pocket and dripped on to their infant, causing redness and blisters to his neck. Brown grabbed his from the woman and slapped her twice before she was able to get the baby back and call police.
Brown, who was already wanted for not registering as a sex offender, was charged with injury to a child.
Speaking of food related burns, the worst one I ever experienced was after biting into a piece of pizza fresh from the oven and having the entire topping slide off in my teeth. It left me with a goatee made from a layer of melted cheese, adhered to my chin by a mixture of scalding hot tomato sauce and my salty tears.…
BONNEY LAKE, Wash. — On Sunday, 38-year-old Holly Crayhay went out of this world in the same way I envision Jaded will; in a hail of bullets at the end of a police chase.
Police had tried pulling Crayhay over after she was noticed driving erratically. She stopped for them once, only to pull away. Police eventually did a PIT maneuver, pinning her car against a guardrail.
That’s when Crayhay pulled out a firearm and began shooting at officers. No police were hit, but they returned fire. Crayhay was hit as was a pit bull that had jumped out of her car and charged towards them. The dog was killed at the scene, Crayhay would die later at the hospital.
“It’s unfortunate, but you know, you can’t shoot at the police without having them shoot back at you,” said Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer.
Reading through some of the comments left on a couple news articles, Crayhay had quite the criminal history, and going by her Facebook postings, some mental issues as well.…
SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, VA – A man sitting in a vehicle with his children died after he accidentally shot himself with his own gun.
Police say the 45-year-old man was sitting in a minivan with his two children while his wife returned a movie to a Redbox. Reports are the man went to unbuckle his seatbelt when he accidentally pulled the trigger of his .40-caliber Glock, shooting himself in the hip.
His wife ran back to the vehicle after she heard a popping noise, and her husband told her he thought he had shot himself. He was right, and possible shredded his femoral artery as by time a Sheriff’s Deputy arrived on the scene a few minutes later, the man had already suffered significant blood loss and was unconscious. He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
I couldn’t find any details regarding exactly where the man was carrying his firearm, but just going by where he was shot and how it happened, it definitely wasn’t in a holster.…
The incident began at around 3PM last Thursday, when the woman — who, at that time, was fully clothed — walked into Dragon China restaurant and demanded free food after finding the word “free” on the take-out menu.
“She asked the cashier, ‘Everything is for free?’ ” said the restaurant’s owner, Dajo Zhao. When told “no,” Zhou said that the woman then slammed her fingers down on the menu, while screaming, “Free! Free! Free! Free!”
Another customer reportedly told her that she was crazy. In an obvious bid to prove that person wrong, the disgruntled customer started throwing ‘everything she could get her hands on’ and ‘screaming with rage.’ She reportedly moved to the back of the restaurant, where she ‘pushed over equipment, threw food, and punched a chef.’
“I walked in and I saw an old lady trashing the place,” said Noreen Monier, who owns a nearby store.…
OCALA, Fla. – The elderly woman who shot into a man’s home after he refused to kiss her has been given two years probation.
We first posted about ol’ Helen Staudinger back in March after she wanted a kiss from her 53-year-old neighbor so bad, she refused to leave his house until she got one. Dwight Bettner has had issues with Staudinger before, the elderly woman saying he was supposed to be her man and had even tried to strangle a woman she thought he was having sex with.
On this occasion, Bettner rebuked Staudinger’s advances and escorted her out of his home. Scorned, Staudinger went to her house, grabbed her .380 semi-automatic handgun and squeezed off four shots at Bettner’s home, one bullet missing Bettner by inches. Staudinger, who told police she was aiming at Bettner’s car, was charged with aggravated assault and shooting into an occupied dwelling.
Prosecutors later decided not to pursue the charge of aggravated assault with a firearm. Staudinger has been ordered to stay away from Bettner and is no longer allowed to possess a firearm.…
Instead of going to school on Tuesday, Ashley Billasano took to her Twitter page and made a series of tweets to her 500 followers detailing her feelings of despair, being a victim of sexual abuse and injustice. Her last tweet was made at 2:97 p.m. and read: “Take two. I hope I get this right.”
Police are not releasing too many details on exactly how she committed suicide for fear of copycats, but they say Billasano suffocated herself using a method she learned on the Internet.
The majority of her tweets that day detailed claims of sexual abuse and being forced into prostitution at a young age. Some of this is backed up by her mother and the fact that her stepfather, Allan Leskinen, is currently finishing up an 11-year-stint in prison after being convicted of sexually abusing Billasano when she was only 7-years-old.
Years later, at 14-years-old, she claims she was sexually abused by another family member as well as other adults.…
Cincinnati, OH — Police have arrested a 13-year-old boy, charging him with the rape of a 5-year-old girl in a McDonald’s Playland.
The little girl was visiting the McDonald’s with her grandmother on October 29th when the alleged sexual assault happened inside the restaurant’s playground area. The girl told police the teen climbed inside some play equipment she was in where he then penetrated her vagina with his finger and forced her to put her finger in his ass.
After her grandmother realized something was wrong and the girl relayed what had happened, the teen had already left the area. After investigating the complaint, police released a photo of the teen they retrieved from the McDonald’s surveillance camera on Wednesday.
The following day the teen arrived at the police department with his parents. After being interviewed, he was taken into custody, charged with one count of rape. No word on if he will be charged as an adult, but he is currently in a juvenile detention center.…
Pueblo, CO - Pueblo police officer Matthew Ballard said that officers were called to a woman’s home on a report that an unidentified man was “performing oral sexual acts on the woman’s dog.”
According to the arrest report, the man then began “pleasuring himself” in front of the female dog. The man was gone by the time police arrived, but they were able to find him in the bathroom of a nearby bar.
Kenneth Milosavich, 55, was reported to be in possession of a small amount of crack cocaine, a pipe in his pocket, and – hopefully – a freshly used toothbrush and some breath mints. According to the arrest report, during the interaction with Milosavich, he tried to blow the cocaine out of an officer’s hand.
Milosavich was arrested on charges of animal cruelty, indecent exposure, possession of crack cocaine, possession of drug paraphenialia, and tampering. Milosavich is being held in Pueblo County jail without bail.…
Police said that she backed it up with four credit cards, a birth certificate, and Social Security card. Fingerprint analysis, though, indicated that Jahinda was, in fact, Damian A. Ricketts, 27 – a male with outstanding arrest warrants. According to police, Ricketts quickly admitted to his true identity, saying that he is ‘transgender.’
Police investigating then discovered that the truck driven by Ricketts had been stolen. According to police, a Pennsylvania man said that Ricketts took the truck’s keys from the his house when leaving after a sexual encounter that the man had arranged through Craigslist with Ricketts and a second transvestite prostitute. Ricketts and the other prostitute reportedly returned later when the man was at work and burglarized his house, taking electronics and the truck.
Police also reportedly found almost 300 armor-piercing bullets in the truck. Ricketts admitted that they belonged to him/her.…
Orlando, FL — The stylish gent to the left is 33-year-old Robert Walker – he was jailed earlier this week after police found more than 500 pornographic images on his computer depicting graphic sexual acts involving children – infants included.
The investigation into Walker’s online activities began back in August. Police finally seized and searched his computer in late October, and that ultimately led to his arrest on Wednesday.
When questioned about the images, Walker reportedly tried to pin the blame on his 13- and 15-year-old children. Police, however, called bullshit when a forensic review determined that Walker’s profile was in use “on several personal programs” while the nasty files were being downloaded.
Walker was still behind bars yesterday, facing multiple child-pornography charges. A bail amount has not yet been made available.…
Rogersville, TN — Erica Francis Wilson, 21, and Jesse Elijah Brooks, 32, were both jailed Tuesday after an argument over their relationship status got all violent and stabby. Wilson was apparently tired of being Brooks’ “booty call.”
The kissin’ cousins were reportedly tanked on Everclear Tuesday evening when Brooks got all touchy-feely with Wilson, his first cousin. Apparently fed up with being nothing more than a piece of ass, Wilson started in with the whole, “I want a relationship” whine. Brooks, obviously one of those desperado types, apparently got all punchy shortly after the word “relationship” left Wilson’s lips.
According to police, after being knocked to the floor and punched in the face, Wilson grabbed a pair of scissors off a nearby table. When Brooks attacked again, she “cut him,” leaving a puncture wound on his neck and lacerations on his neck, face, arms and back.
Brooks later refused to give a statement to police, telling officers he didn’t want to press charges, he just wanted Wilson to leave.…
Attleboro, MA – A 41-year old Massachusetts mother has been arrested for allegedly forcing her 10-year-old daughter to pose nude on webcam in the preposterous hopes of winning a $20,000 mother-daughter bikini photo shoot.
Ann Lussier reportedly made her daughter strip down to her bra and underwear – and then get completely naked – while a man who identified himself as a Florida-based photographer watched her over Skype. The woman and her daughter were unable to see the photographer because, according to his claim, ‘his camera was broken.’
According to court documents, Lussier complained to her twin sister about the incident and how “uncooperative” her daughter was during the nude broadcast. The charging document also stated the aunt heard her niece crying in the background. The sister, who presumably ended up with all of the brains in their shared womb, contacted authorities. The resulting month-long investigation led to the arrest of the man allegedly on the other end of the camera – Joshua Dunfee of Oxford Junction, Iowa. That would be the Iowa that is in Florida, of course…
“There are sickos out there, and they let them go.…
