LAWRENCEVILLE, PA — A woman in Pennsylvania is facing charges after investigators say she smeared feces on her baby’s face and feeding tube in order to make him sick.
According to a criminal complaint, 38-year-old Lauren Buzard had brought 6-month-old baby to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh for unexplained illnesses several times since May.
Eventually, doctors suspected that 38-year-old Lauren Buzard may be doing something to harm her baby and surveillance cameras were placed in Buzard’s son’s room. It didn’t take long before the doctor’s suspicions were confirmed.
The cameras captured Buzard using a dirty diaper to smear feces on her baby’s face and nasal feeding tube. The motive? Munchausen by proxy syndrome. Doctors concluded Buzard was “actively harming her child in order to gain the benefit of exhaustive medical evaluation and attention.”
Lauren Buzard was arrested and has been charged with aggravated assault and reckless endangerment of a child. She is currently in jail waiting to appear before a judge on August 21. The baby has been placed with his father.…Continue Reading
GULFPORT, FL — The driver of the school bus accused by some of not doing enough to protect a 13-year-old kid who was getting his ass kicked by three teens will not face any charges.
According to Gulfport police, the bus had left Lealman Intermediate School when three 15-year-olds — Lloyd Khemradj, Julian McKnight and Joshua Reddin — punched and kicked the 13-year-old victim dozens of times, fracturing his hand and robbing him before leaving via the rear emergency door.
The motive behind the beating stems from the victim telling school officials that one of the attackers had tried to sell him pot in the school bathroom two weeks earlier. The three boys are now facing charges of aggravated battery with one of them facing an additional charge of robbery for taking the victim’s cash.
Police initially wanted charges filed against the bus driver, 64-year-old John Moody, for failing to properly help the victim. “There was clearly an opportunity for him to intervene and or check on the welfare of the children or the child in this case and he didn’t make any effort to do so,” said Chief Robert Vincent of Gulfport Police Department.…Continue Reading
Moab, UT – Think you are having a bad day? Well a cop in Utah has been accused of trying to kill his father after he caught him having sex with his wife.
According to reports, 33-year-old Timothy John “TJ” Brewer, a deputy with the sheriff’s department in Grand County, invited his father, Moab fire chief Wesley “Corky” Brewer, to his home for dinner and drinks.
Sometime in the early morning hours, TJ’s wife, Logan Brewer, said she was going to take one of their children to bed. When that kid came back downstairs, TJ realized he was alone and went upstairs to find the door to his 4-year-old son’s bedroom was locked. When he made entry, he found his wife on top of his father, with “his dad’s dick” inside her.
As you can imagine, poor TJ lost it. He “beat the fuck” out of his old man before leaving the room and coming back with a handgun. Logan told investigators that she heard her husband “rack a round” into the gun’s chamber before he started smacking her around a bit.…Continue Reading

Taylor Harris was with his mother and father eating dinner at an Orlando Dave and Buster’s restaurant. They were on a vacation from Mississippi and Taylor had just learned his father was cheating on his mother. An already angered Taylor became even more agitated when he saw his dad was receiving text messages from his lover while they were eating dinner.
Taylor stormed out of the restaurant, yelling behind him that his father better not follow him into the parking lot. Taylor’s mother would later tell police that she urged her husband to follow Taylor outside to find out why he was so upset.

Laredo, TX – Last year we reported on a kindergarten teacher who allegedly instructed an entire classroom of students to line up and slap a kid because of his alleged bullying. On Thursday that teacher was found guilty of official oppression.
Last May, 6-year-old Aiden Neely had been acting up in line while at Salinas Elementary and hit another student. His teacher, Barbara Ramirez, asked another teacher, 44-year-old Cynthia Ambrose, what she should do to curtail his bullying. Ambrose came up with the genius idea of having the boy sit in her classroom before instructing 24 other kindergartners to file past him and give him a nice slap.
“He was hit on the head, in the face, on the back. And all the kids hit him twice,” said Aiden’s mother. “He had friends in that class, and friends didn’t want to hit him, but the teacher instructed them to hit him.”
Ramirez said that the first hits were just pats, but quickly escalated at Ambrose’s insistence. “It started out as a pat,” Ramirez said.…Continue Reading

ALPHARETTA, GA – Two employees at a Golden Corral in Georgia got themselves fired after a waitress poured scalding hot water on one of the cooks.
According to the incident report, 20-year-old Alexis Carter got into an argument with a cook, Marcus Benson. The argument was of a personal nature and, according to a statement released by Golden Corral, was not work related.
Whatever the argument was about, Carter was pissed.
As the restaurant’s patrons loudly mooed in frustration over the troughs not being loaded with honey-glazed giblets and deep fried fried chicken fast enough, Carter hit Marcus in the face with a dirty mop. She then hit him in the face with a pitcher she had filled with scalding hot water.
The resulting impact caused the boiling water to pour down the back of Marcus’ neck and a brown gravy enema to slip out of one diner’s butthole. Police reviewed surveillance footage of the incident before arresting Carter on a charge of battery. She has since bonded out of jail and has not provided a comment.…Continue Reading
LOUISVILLE, KY – Police have arrested 41-year-old Yolanda Pearson after six children walked inside a police station and showed them where she had beat them all with an extension cord.
According to the arrest warrant, Pearson got angry with the children after coming home and finding a washcloth on the floor of the bathroom. She allegedly got an extension cord and used it to whip two 10-year-olds, an 11-year-old, two 12-year-olds and one 14-year-old.
After the punishment, all six of the children walked to a police station together to make a report of abuse, police say. The children were sporting injuries, so police took photographs of visible loop marks on their arms, legs and back.
Pearson is the legal guardian of all the children, some of them telling police Pearson was either their mother, or their aunt. Pearson was arrested and charged with five counts of criminal child abuse, and one count of assault.
Neighbors said the children were only seen outside of the home when they were doing yard work or coming home from school.…Continue Reading
Philadelphia, PA – Police arrested 26-year-old Attifa Brown inside her daughter’s school after she allegedly assaulted an 11-year-old girl she says has been bullying her daughter.
Brown says while she did go to A.B. Anderson Elementary School with her daughter to confront the other girl, she says she never touched her. “I don’t beat my own child, let alone somebody else’s,” said Brown.
“The problem here is that we have a 26-year-old mother who has no reason to approach an 11-year-old child, so her credibility as far as I’m concerned is shot,” said Lt. John Walker, Philadelphia Police.
Besides, they say there is video of the incident. According to the 11-year-old victim’s mother, it shows Brown “over my daughter for minutes, poking her in the face, pulling her hair and beating her,” said Bobby Webster.
Brown is facing a myriad of charges, including terroristic threats, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and defiant trespass. School officials are looking into how Brown was able to walk into the school without signing in or without being questioned.…Continue Reading

Just before midnight, the Marine was on a crowded dance floor when he was sucker punched in the face by a man who has yet to be identified. The assault was reportedly unprovoked and left the man unconscious for ten to fifteen minutes.
According to police, the blow was so brutal that it moved his nose across his face. He would end up having titanium plates inserted into his face, as well as permanent nerve damage.

ST. JOSEPH, MO - A 16-year-old Central High School student was charged in juvenile court with third degree assault, after taking a piss in a coffee pot used by school faculty.
The incident happened in March, when some teachers who drank the coffee reported that the coffee tasted funny.
“A report was made that it tasted like chemical or cleaner – I’m not sure what the word was,” said St. Joseph Superintendent of Schools Dr. Melody Smith. “There seemed like this personal coffee pot in a storage room, that the coffee tasted strange.”
An internal investigation was launched that included reviewing footage, frame by frame, from a hidden surveillance camera in the faculty room. Three weeks later, school staff were finally able to find the 16-year-old student responsible for tainting the coffee, and exactly what they’d tainted it with.
