In The Mean Time...
Cleveland, Ohio–J’vari Reed, just 4-months-old, is laying in a hospital right now, suffering from injuries inflicted upon him by one, or both, of his parents. When little J’vari showed up at the emergency room on Tuesday, he was suffering from bleeding in his brain, a lacerated liver, a fractured right jaw, a fractured left arm, a fractured pelvis, a fractured leg, many fresh bruises and old fractures in his collar bone and right hand. I’ve known people to walk away from car accidents with much less than that! What happened to this little guy?…Continue Reading

Durham, North Carolina–‘Gina, I love you so much babe. I’m so lucky to have you. I’m glad you feel the same way. I want to be with you forever. I’d never do anything to hurt u.’ This love note was written by a 10-year-old boy. Sweet, huh? Well, it would’ve been sweet if he had written it to a 10-year-old girl. But the note was written for an older woman–a much older woman. The object of his affection? A teacher’s assistant at Creekside Elementary School, 40-year-old Gina Marie Watring. The note never made it to it’s intended reader…another student at the school intercepted the love note and handed it over to school officials. School-boy crush, perhaps? School officials questioned the child, checked out a few text messages on his phone and called his mom. According to mom, the child was often at Watring’s home as part of a school club. Sometimes Watring would bring her son home late or she would have to call and ask where they were.…Continue Reading
It is time once again to highlight our complete failure at covering all of the people that were not so much born into this world as crapped onto it. If it didn’t cut into my nap time, I could provide you with pages and pages of witty banter about these sad sacks of shit, but alas, I am lazy and useless. I hope you can make do with these short snippets in the meantime.…Continue Reading
KATY, Texas – A 12-year-old girl waited for her father to go to bed, then took a gun and shot him in the back of the head. This incident occurred after an argument between the two. She has been transferred to Harris County Juvenile Detention Center and initially charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Mark A. Nelson, 38, later died at the hospital so these charges will probably get upgraded to murder. …Continue Reading

Bremerton, Florida–Oh hell…I don’t even know where to start with this one. In 1999, Michael J. Alderman Sr., 36, was found guilty of sexual assault of a child.

Seattle, Washington–Craigslist: a network of online communities featuring classified ads ranging from help wanted ads to erotic services, with a lot of everything in between.

Search for sex offenders in your area? There’s an app for that. Shake a baby to death? There’s an app for that, too – or at least, there was.…Continue Reading
Las Vegas, NV- Being a parent, I am fully aware that my kids will have disagreements and probably get into a few fights with other kids at their school. It’s all part of growing up and learning how to deal with others you dislike and/or those who dislike you. What’s sad about this story is that these two grown adults, who should know have known better, drove their kid to a fight and then whacked one of the kids with a crowbar when it was getting out of hand. How do you teach your child to defend themselves against kids who have idiots for parents?…Continue Reading
Lackawanna, New York–Every single state in the good ‘ol US of A now has a Safe Haven Law in place. While the specifics vary from state to state, the bottom line is this–if you don’t want your baby, there are options available. In the state of New York, parents may, up until the baby is five days old, ‘anonymously and safely leave their infant in the care of a responsible person at a hospital, police station, fire station or a responsible person at another safe location.’ It is so simple–relinquish your infant and walk away–no harm, no foul. Why do women keep killing their babies?…Continue Reading
Chicago, Illinois–Gustavo Torres-Medel called his girlfriend at work Monday morning and told her she’d better get home, ‘something disgraceful had happened.’ Disgraceful isn’t quite the word I would use, but whatever.
