DeLand, FL – A Florida man has been accused of taking a belt to three young children because one of them farted in the car and failed to own up to it.
Austin Davis, 32, was taken into custody Thursday in connection with the incident, which apparently occurred sometime during Thanksgiving Day weekend.
According to police, Davis was traveling with the children when one of ‘em let a juicy one rip. He apparently became unhinged when the kiddos zipped their lips and refused to tattle on the butt trumpeter, and each got a taste of the belt.
The beatings were so severe, police say, the children had significant bruising and painful injuries. A female relative close to the children took photos of the alleged injuries, but for whatever reason, didn’t inform the authorities until just recently.
The photos reportedly showed a 6-year-old with dark bruising to the legs, buttocks and thighs. A 12-year-old also had dark bruises on his legs and thighs. And a 9-year-old refused to have pictures of his bruises taken because he feared retaliation if Davis found out he reported the incident.…Continue Reading
DeLand, Fl - I have a long list of things I despise in this world and spousal abuse is very close to the top. Having to deal with it personally, I learned it is not only aggravating to witness, but even more frustrating to watch the abused return to their abuser time and time again even though they know it is not the best thing for them. Let’s hope this will not be the case for Lenora Shorts and she will use this tragic occurrence as reminder that those who really love you do not beat you. Around 12:08 a.m. Saturday police responded to a suspicious incident call where they found a half-naked woman unresponsive inside and abandoned car. The topless woman was lying on her back with her legs dangling out of the open passenger side door. When the officers spoke to her, she mumbled that her husband had punched and kicked her all over and pointed in the direction he ran. The woman, 46-year old Lenora Shorts, was airlifted to Halifax Health Medical Center in critical condition.…Continue Reading
DeLand, Florida - When I was just a little Jaded, I wanted to grow up and become a cop. I dreamed of saving the world with my shiny gun and my big-ass flashlight. Now that I’m almost all grown up, I realize that I never would have made it past the first week – I would have had a run-in with the likes of the lovely Julie Hubbard and I would have totally lost my shit. The arrest report would have read, “The cracked bitch spit on my leg, and that’s when I pulled out my big-ass flashlight and lit up her insides. The end.” Julie turned what could have been a simple ticket and a fine into a sputum flinging, name calling, law enforcement officer threatening, clusterfuck. …Continue Reading
DeLand, FL – Before you blow your top and end up gracing the front page of the Dreamin’ Demon, remember, there are many effective ways of dealing with stress without resorting to violence. Of course, I neither know nor practice any of them, but I have heard of ways others deal with their tension. Some people shop ’til it hurts. Others drink themselves into oblivion – forgetting their own name and the reason for their angst. Some toke it up and pig out on Doritos until their mood improves. And Morbid, well, he masturbates. A. Lot. (Ask him about his carpal tunnel sometime). When Darren Daniels discovered his wife may have *gasp* smoked his last cigarette, he went postal and killed his pet rat. What the hell the rat had to do with anything is beyond me…I guess there wasn’t a toddler lurking anywhere in the vicinity. …Continue Reading
Deland, FL- Last Thursday around 3:30 p.m., a 75-year old woman was walking down the sidewalk to a Publix store when a man attacked her from behind and pulled her purse from her arm. The woman tried to whack the purse-snatcher in the shin with her cane, but he had already hot-footed it across the shopping plaza before she got any licks in. So, instead, the elderly woman began hollering for someone to help her and stop the thief. Sitting in his truck at the bank a few feet away, Matthew Ridenour, 39, became angry when he saw an older woman robbed in broad daylight and he immediately took off after the suspect in his truck.…Continue Reading
