Middleborough, Mass. – DSS dropped the ball on this one so hard it bounced. Michelle Henry, 30, has a record of neglect with Massachusetts dating to 2002. The Department of Social Services had been notified in December 2007 that her seven-year-old son was being beaten with a belt, and has sent caseworkers to the home four times in the last three months. So why didn’t anyone do a full-body check on March 4, when Henry’s little boy told school staff that he had cigarette burns? Your guess is as good as mine.
On March 17, the child went back to his teacher and reported again, and the school notified DSS for the third time in four months. When DSS finally got around to checking out Michelle Henry’s son later that day, he had cigarette burns to his buttocks and genitals. The child reported being beaten and burned by David Privette, 22, Henry’s boyfriend. Oh, and Privette also pissed on the kid’s head, just for funsies. …Continue Reading

Stephanie Leblanc and Norman Porter
Hillsboro, OR (March 18, 2008) – Stephanie Leblanc-Porter, 38, is not evil because she’s a swinger who likes BDSM and exhibitionism. She’s not evil because she keeps adult male “pets” in her home with her husband’s permission (okay, maybe that’s a little evil). She’s not evil because she takes naughty pics of herself sliding down a banister and posts them on Myspace.
No, Stephanie Leblanc-Porter is an evil bitch because she decided to discipline her fifteen-year-old daughter by pulling her out of school and turning her into the family submissive sex-slave.…Continue Reading

Stephen Berkner, 39, is now facing a charge of malicious punishment of a child, stemming from witness statements as well as from the 3-year-old himself. A doctor’s examination of the child found bruises on his back, near his eyes, chin and both hands.
It’s cases like this in which I would just LOVE to see a person get as much as they gave if the allegations are true. Throw him in a UFC octagon for a round or two with some heavy-weights, then go all Fear Factor on him as he is forced to eat a dozen Madagascar hissing cockroaches while being smothered.
I LOATHE worthless, weak, human beings who abuse children. If it turns out that the mother is actually one of the witnesses to this abuse, then she is no better.…Continue Reading
