Chicago, IL – Cook County prosecutors say Scandale Fritz, 16, Kenneth Brown, 15, and Justin Applewhite, 16, raped a 12-year-old girl at gunpoint, then posted a video of the sexual assault on their Facebook pages.
It happened in December of last year when the victim went to Fritz’s home to talk to him. Once inside, the girl said that Brown and Applewhite were also there and that Brown had a gun in his pocket.
Fritz took the girl into the basement were he raped and sodomized her. He then ordered her to have sex with the other two teens. She refused, but later complied because she was scared Brown would kill her.
The girl “knew that all three defendants were gang members of the Black Disciples faction ‘Tay-Town’ and was fearful that [Brown] would shoot her,” Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Bridget O’Brien said.
Tt’s quite common for teens to videotape their illegal activities so they can then share them online, and these teens were no exception. This particular video shows Brown waving a gun in the air while the girl performs a sex act, and all three shouting gang slogans, prosecutors said.…Continue Reading
SALLISAW, OK – Police say Misty Vanhorn tried to sell her two young children for $4000 in order to bail her boyfriend out of jail.
No word on who the boyfriend is or why he is in jail, but VanHorn really wanted to get him out. “She was going door to door, here to all the way across town asking everybody for money to get him out,’ said Tony Mosby, a neighbor.
The 22-year-old figured a quick way to get some cash would be to sell her two kids. She allegedly contacted a woman in Fort Smith, Ark., through Facebook with an offer to sell her two children.
For the low, low price of $1000, the woman could have Vanhorn’s 2-year-old. To sweeten the deal, Vanhort said for $4000, the woman could have both her 2-year-old and Vanhorn’s 10-month-old.
“Just come to Sallisaw, it’s only 30 minutes away and I’ll give you all of her stuff and let y’all have her forever for $1,000,” Vanhorn reportedly wrote to the woman.
Fearing for the children’s safety, the woman contacted Oklahoma Department of Human Services who then notified Sallisaw police.…Continue Reading
Moon Township, PA — Sad panda to the left is 27-year-old Ashley Trimmer — she’s been accused of assaulting her boyfriend with a Playstation controller and a Furby.
According to police, Trimmer and her beloved, William Ley, got into a heated argument after Ley apparently posted something on Facebook that displeased Trimmer. (No, I don’t have a link to their Facebook profiles. Yes, I’m too fucking lazy to do a search).
The argument quickly turned violent when Trimmer picked up a Furby and tossed it at Ley’s head, leaving a cut on the right side of his face. That little shit-fit apparently did little to appease her, so she threw a Playstation controller at him, too, leaving a mark on the left side of his face. Being OCD, I totally get the reasoning behind the second assault….
When officers responded they found Ley bleeding from his face, with a red mark and bump on the head.
Trimmer was transported to jail and charged with assault. After making bond, she was promptly sent to her room without dinner to think about what she’d done.…Continue Reading
Naperville, IL – Police have arrested 35-year-old Bryan Woldman after he drove to a theater, where he thought he was meeting a 12-year-old girl for a sexual encounter.
When Woldman arrived at the theater, he was cock blocked by members of the Naperville Police Department, who arrested Woldman and charged him with indecent solicitation of a minor, traveling to meet a minor for a sexual encounter and grooming.
Police were aware of Woldman after an alert mother contacted them to report her 12-year-old had been engaged in inappropriate communications with Woldman “via Facebook, cell phone, text, and Skype,” police said in a release.
So for the next few weeks, the Naperville Police High Technology Crimes Unit began an investigation in which Woldman “exchanged sexually explicit text messages with what he thought was the 12-year-old female” that ultimately led to Woldman thinking he would be meeting the girl for sex.
At around 7:47 p.m. Friday, Woldman allegedly traveled from his home to the theater where he was arrested without incident. He has been transferred to Will County jail with a bond set at $1 million.…Continue Reading
Walton, NY – A 27-year-old woman has been accused of making a series of posts on Facebook that threatened children and their families. Keep reading, as you won’t believe the level of stupidity this woman possesses.
Over the weekend, several Walton children and teenagers were getting death threats and pornography from an individual using various Facebook accounts (including this one and this one). The profiles used the same picture of two little girls that they stated they wanted to kill, as well as images of dead children tagged with the names of local Walton youth.
The person was also hacking into other Walton residents’ Facebook accounts to post even more harassing messages to the children, even going as far as asking if they should duplicate the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings.
This prompted police to monitor the local schools and for school administrators to cancel all outside school activities. They also informed parents the school doors would be locked during the day and that the staff had been made aware of the situation.…Continue Reading
Princeton, MN — A man accused of throwing food items at his wife after arguing about his ex-girlfriend’s Facebook profile pic got exactly what he wished for, after repeatedly stating to police that he would rather go to jail than to stay with his wife.
Eustaquio Israel Morales-Hernandez told police that on the evening of the alleged food fight, he had consumed about nine beers and was stalking his ex-girlfriend’s profile. Well, the wife caught him lookin’. That, my friends, led to the lamest verbal argument ever.
The current bitch reportedly said the ex-bitch looked like a man. Morales-Hernandez came back with a snappy retort. It went a little like this…
“Well, if she looks like a man, than you look like a cow.”
The two apparently continued to go back and forth a bit… the wife called Morales-Hernandez a Mexican burrito and an illegal alien. His response? Elephant.
Morales-Hernandez then allegedly started throwing random kitchen and food items at her… one of the items made contact with her trunk.…Continue Reading
PLYMOUTH, MA – If you are interested in watching someone suffer severe backlash at the hands of the Internet because of a picture they posted on Facebook, then look no further than 30-year-old Lindsey Stone.
Stone was visiting the Arlington National Cemetery in October while on a paid business trip. She and a co-worker thought it would be funny to take this picture of Lindsey acting as if she was shouting while giving the finger to a sign at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier that asks for “silence and respect.”
Thinking that this was funny and clever and everyone would tell them what a laugh riot she is, Lindsey and her co-worker posted the image to their public Facebook profiles for the world to see. Of course, this turned out to be a real bad idea.
It wasn’t long before the picture went viral, outraging many, prompting someone claiming to be a disabled Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran to create a Fire Lindsey Stone Facebook page. He is demanding that Stone be fired from LIFE, the non-profit organization that helps adults with disabilities that Lindsey worked for and who paid for the trip.…Continue Reading
Mesquite, TX – A woman in Texas is facing felony charges after she allegedly identified an undercover narcotics officer by posting his picture and his job on Facebook.
Earlier this month, someone notified police of a post Melissa Walthall, 30, had made on Facebook. It was a photograph of a man labeled “Undercover Mesquite Narcotics” with the caption “Anyone know this bitch.” According to the arrest affidavit, a warrant was issued for Walthall’s arrest after her post was deemed a “viable threat to that officer’s safety.”
When questioned, Walthall told police she had seen the photograph on a flyer her friend had made, and had posted it online because the officer had testified against her friend two months earlier in a drug case. She would not tell police who the friend was, but a computer search led police to 34-year-old George Pickens and his brother, 26-year-old Bobby Stedham.
Pickens told investigators he and his brother found the undercover officer’s Facebook page after doing some sleuthing online, then used the man’s photo to make flyers to display “like garage sale signs,” according to the affidavit.…Continue Reading
WINDSOR, CT – A 16-year-old in Connecticut is facing several felony charges after he posted a video on Facebook depicting a 14-year-old girl having sex with one of his friends.
I could rehash what was stated in the news article I linked to, but I freeze-framed the news video and was able to read some of the charging documents that the reporter holds up to the screen.
In December of last year, 16-year-old Malik McKnight recorded a friend having consensual sex with the 14-year-old girl in the girl’s bedroom. Malik stated that he had been asked into the bedroom and that the couple were aware that he was filming. Court documents state the video shows a naked male having sex with the girl as she is bent over a bed.
Later that same month, Malik and one of his friends went to the girl’s home and told her that if she did not have sex with them, that he would post the video. The girl said she wasn’t sure if Malik still had the video or not, so she had sex with him just in case.…Continue Reading
LIHUE, Hawaii – It’s no secret that men will go through great lengths to get laid. Hell, even I’ve had to sit through a couple Matthew McConaughey flicks, all in the name of vagina. But the elaborate steps one man in Hawaii took to sink the pink ended with him being convicted of sexual assault charges and getting himself a decade behind bars.
Back in 2010, 29-year-old Leonard Alpeche Jr. came up with a way to meet women for sex that was unbelievably convoluted and entirely illegal. He assumed the identity of a real 15-year-old girl and would use a fake Facebook account to promise women a lucrative career in modeling.
Claiming to be a model working for a local modeling agency, he would tell the women to contact an email address or phone number to sign up for a modeling contract. Surprisingly (or not), two women took the bait. Alpeche then used a series of email addresses, phone numbers, and Internet messaging services to assume the roles of various modeling agency employees, including a secretary, an agent, and a photographer.…Continue Reading
Montgomery County, LA – Police in Louisiana have arrested 49-year-old Duane Parker after he allegedly sent sexual messages to more than a dozen preteens on Facebook, including a video of him masturbating while saying what he would like to do to a seventh-grade girl.
Parker got busted after an investigation into his online activities that started when the mother of one of the girls he contacted authorities after seeing messages from an unfamiliar name on her daughter’s Facebook page. The girl told her mother that she only accepted his friend request due to how many mutual friends that had in common.
His modus operandi seemed to be friending a young girl on Facebook, along with any of her friends, then begin innocently messaging them before bringing out the big guns. “He’ll chat with them for a while but then after befriending them he’ll start sending pornographic videos to them, whether it was video or still images,” said Captain Mark Seals.
By time investigators got involved, Parker had deleted his Facebook account and created a new one. Law enforcement discovered his new Facebook account and seen Parker had attempted to contact several more young girls.…Continue Reading
ST. LOUIS, MO – The woman who recorded a fight between two toddlers, then posted the video to her Facebook, has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
Earlier this month, 21-year-old Latonya Davis recorded a video of her 2-year-old daughter fighting with a 3-year-old boy she was babysitting. In the video, Davis can be heard laughing while the children cry hysterically as they strike each other at Latonya Davis’ instructions.
“Got some action! Got some action!” Davis can be heard yelling as she records. “Y’all better ball up some fists!”
Obviously thinking that this was perfectly acceptable, Davis then posted the video to Facebook to share with birds of a feather. But she found out pretty quickly that while this may be hilarious in certain circles, not everyone found it amusing.
“It’s like she’s training her before she starts school or something,” said an acquaintance of Davis. “It’s sad because today’s society in the black community its really sickening that these kids are learning how to fight, get guns and stuff, and it shouldn’t be going on.”
In the probable cause statement, a law enforcement officer states:
“I believe that the defendant poses a danger to a crime victim, the community, or any other person because defendant took obvious pleasure and amusement in causing a three and a half year old child and a two and a half year old to engage each other in a physical fight.…Continue Reading
COOKEVILLE, TN – A 42-year-old man’s plan of meeting a 12-year-old girl he met on Facebook was interrupted the other night when the girl’s father introduced the man’s face to his fist.
The girl’s father noticed that his daughter had been receiving messages on Facebook from a man he did not know. When he questioned her, she said she did not know him either. The father checked out the man’s Facebook page and found out his age and phone number.
Outraged, the father began texting the man’s phone posing as his own daughter. The man replied back, sent a picture of himself and asked the girl for a picture of her in a swimsuit. He also agreed to meet the girl at Cane Creek Park. When the man got to the park on Saturday, he met the girl’s very angry father instead, who had called police.
By time police got there the two men had already gotten into a fight and the girl’s father had bloodied the 42-year-old man’s nose. The bleeding man told police that “he knew the girl he was meeting was 12 years old and that he deserved what her dad had done to him.”
He went on to explain that he only wanted to befriend the girl because he was unable to have children of his own (to dress in swimsuits).…Continue Reading
West Haven, CT – A woman has been placed behind bars after making a series of videos of herself abusing her 10-month-old daughter and then sending those videos, along with some messed up text messages, to the child’s father.
Court records show 24-year-old Kellie Park took seven videos of herself abusing her little girl then sending those videos to the child’s father through at least 55 text messages that included such gems as “I’ll f***ing break her face in” and “I’ll beat her face in” along with the timeless classic, “I love abusing this kid.”
The videos were just as disturbing. One shows Park as she kicks a gate on top of her crying child causing her to fall, and then saying “don’t you get it? Your father doesn’t care so guess what, I’m not gonna care.” Another video shows Park throwing food at her crying daughter as she sat in her high chair. In other videos Park can be heard telling her daughter she’s not worth half a cigarette, and that she makes her life miserable.…Continue Reading
St. Petersburg, FL - A Florida mother is facing child abuse charges after being accused of choking a teen who was allegedly cyber-bullying her daughter on Facebook. The incident was caught on mall surveillance video.
Debbie Piscitella, 46, is the mother of 13-year-old MacKenna. According to Piscitella, MacKenna has been the focus of a relentless stream of Facebook comments being made by a 14-year-old classmate named Jon on a shared page.
“The boy tells my daughter that she is a fat f*****g whale and didn’t deserve to live because she is so nasty that he wouldn’t even rape her,” Piscitella explained. Piscitella added that another Facebook comment by Jon talked about the 13-year-old performing oral sex, reading, “Tell her to keep s*king d*ck.”
Piscitella maintains that the comments were affecting her daughter emotionally.
“She wanted to kill herself,” said Piscitella. “She doesn’t want to go do anything. She doesn’t want to go out. She doesn’t even want to go to her dance.”
The situation reportedly came to a head when Piscitella – a married mother-of-two who is studying to be a nurse – was with MacKenna at Tyrone Square Mall on Memorial Day.…Continue Reading
Boulder, CO - According to police, a Colorado youth hockey coach has admitted having online chats where he asked young male teen players to send him nude photos and challenged them to ‘masturbation races’ on Facebook. Police failed to see this as merely an effort to foster competitiveness.
Zachary Meints, 24, was arrested in response to police allegations that Meints had inappropriate online communication with boys as young as 13 when Meints was an assistant coach with the Boulder Hockey Club. Police said that he later moved to the Rocky Mountain RoughRiders youth hockey club where the conduct continued.
According to a Boulder affidavit, police first became aware of Meints after a fellow RoughRiders coach reported to the FBI that he overheard Meints having inappropriate phone chats with young hockey players who weren’t on his team. When Meints colleague asked one of the boys about Meints, the boy reportedly said that Meints would call or text him to talk about hockey, but then shift the conversation to sexual innuendo and ask the boy to send him naked photos of himself on Facebook.…Continue Reading
Radnor, Pa - A 19-year-old Pennsylvania man is getting a lesson in what is appropriate from authorities in Pennsylvania after allegedly posting photos of random girls – alongside his post-masturbatory penis – on their Facebook pages. He reportedly told police these actions were ‘no big deal.’ Police disagree.
Neil Geckle, 19, came to the attention of authorities after a gaggle of young females – all members of the Radnor High School network – arrived at police headquarters to complain. Radnor Police Superintendent William Colarulo said that when the girls – three juveniles and one 18-year-old – first came to the station to explain the situation, they were so “hysterical” that he ‘couldn’t understand them at first.’
“I didn’t understand what they were talking about until one of them pulled out a picture,” Colarulo said. “As soon as we saw that, we knew we were dealing with something serious.”
According to investigators, Geckle set up a fake Facebook account. It was reported that Geckle then printed pictures of the girls from Facebook, put the girls’ pictures on a desk in his grandma’s bedroom and – after masturbating to them and ejaculating on them – uploaded a picture of the result including the original photo and his penis to the girls’ pages.…Continue Reading
The traps were discovered on April 16th by U.S. Forest Officer James Schoeffler while investigating reports of suspicious activity along Big Springs Trail. He had been checking out a popular, makeshift dead-wood shelter when he found the first trap.
“As he investigated the shelter he noticed what appeared to be a trip wire near the ground at an entrance. Upon further investigation he discovered that the trip wire led to a booby trap device which was made with a large rock, sticks sharpened at both ends, and was held together with rope,” said a statement issued by the Utah County Sheriff’s Office.
If the wire had been tripped, the boulder was designed to swing at head height. Schoeffler, using his experience as a a bomb disposal technician, decided to check around for more traps.
“Typically, anywhere I’ve been, if there’s one, there’s two, if there’s three, there’s four,” Schoeffler said.
He was correct in his assumptions.…Continue Reading

At 10:20 p.m.…Continue Reading
Pasco, FL - A 57-year-old Florida man is facing charges after he called 911 to complain that his wife would not let him look at Facebook in peace.
Doyle Hardwick only wanted to check his Facebook without his wife sitting next to him, so he tried to get her to go to bed with beer. But after consuming eight of them, his wife didn’t feel like moving and Hardwick called 911.
Caller (CLR) “says him and his wife are sitting next to each other,” the 911 transcript reads. “CLR is upset because she won’t go to bed. Now they are bickering about who has been drinking. CLR has had 4 beers. Wife has had 8 beers. … CLR is upset because she wouldn’t let him look at Facebook peacefully.”
When police arrived at the couple’s home, 54-year-old Julie Hardwick let them in and directed them towards her husband who was still on the phone with 911. Doyle Hardwick told the deputy that his wife was supposed to go to sleep after he gave her the beers because that was their agreement.…Continue Reading
