INDIANAPOLIS, IN — A 9-year-old girl was arrested and charged with battery after her mother called police to report her punching her younger sister.
The mother contacted police over the weekend to report that “her 9-year-old daughter punched her 6-year-old sister in the head” and that she’d recorded the incident on her cell phone.
After the responding officer reviewed the video, he made the decision to arrest the girl on battery charges. The 9-year-old was handcuffed and taken to the Marion County Juvenile Center.
While some may feel the decision to arrest a girl this young is unusual, Rafael Diaz from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said that it’s quite common.
“It happens. It seems like we spend a lot of our time dealing with juvenile issues,” Diaz said.
No way in hell I would call the cops on my kid for hitting a sibling. I’m a good parent and learned a solid kick to the ass will stop almost any child’s unruly behavior. Besides, hiding all the guns and drug paraphernalia would be too much of a hassle.…
That’s bad enough. But the kicker is that the girl had been sent to the bathroom as bait in a sting orchestrated by a teacher trying to catch the boy in the act.
First, here’s a bit of background. Teachers at Sparkman Middle School were having a lot of problems dealing with a 16-year-old boy at the school. The kid wasn’t demonstrating your standard juvenile hijinks; he was violent and sexually aggressive towards female students.
Here’s a quick rundown of some of the issues school administration has had with the teen, starting after a 2008 suspension for hitting a student:
Feb 2009 – Suspended for “sexual harassment.”
Apr 2009 – Received in-school suspension for disrespecting a teacher.
Sep 2009 – Suspended for trying to pay another student to beat up a girl
Oct 2009 – Banned from school bus for 10 days and given three days in-school suspension for telling off school bus driver.…
According to police, the 9-year-old victim was stabbed once in the back with a kitchen knife and is apparently in critical condition.
Witness Glenn Stacey told a reporter from Fox 17 the 12-year-old boy approached him and asked if he could use his phone because he had just stabbed someone.
“He approached me at my house, I offered him my phone and I assumed he was calling his mother,” Stacey said. “Lo and behold he was calling 9-1-1 to say ‘I stabbed someone, please pick me up, I want to end my life.'”
Stacy went on to say the boy told him he was upset because nobody loved him and mentioned he had taken multiple pills earlier that day.
“I calmly started doing what I normally do, I didn’t want to agitate him and make sure he didn’t run away and give time for the police to actually show up, but very calmly he stood there,” Stacy added.…
Police responded to an apartment in Sasebo after the parents of 15-year-old Aiwa Matsuko called to report their daughter had texted to say she was visiting a friend, but never returned after later texting she was on her way home.
When police arrived at the apartment where Matsuko had visited, they found her decapitated body lying on a bed in her friend’s blood-soaked bedroom. Her unidentified friend, also 15, admitted she’d repeatedly struck Matsuo on the back of the head with a blunt instrument before strangling her with a cord.
She then used a large knife to cut off the girl’s head and her left hand. The motive? She allegedly stated she had “wanted to dissect” someone. Police say the accused lived alone in the apartment and do not suspect anyone else was involved in Matsuko’s murder.
Sasebo is is the same fishing village where 12-year-old Satomi Mitarai was stabbed to death by an 11-year-old female classmate in 2004.…
ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Police have arrested three teens in the brutal murder of two homeless men who were beat to death as the slept in a vacant lot.
Alex Rios, 18, Nathaniel Carrillo, 16, and Gilbert Tafoya, 15, have all been accused of using bricks, sticks and a metal pole to beat three transients after returning home from a party Friday night, killing two of them.
One of the men was able to escape and call police to report the attack and letting officers know he recognized one of his assailants as a teen who lived in a nearby house. When police arrived at the home, all three teens were there.
Police immediately noticed Tafoya had blood on the waistband of his shorts. After his parents gave officers permission to search the home, officers would find one of the victim’s driver’s license and debit card.
The boys eventually admitted to the attack, with Rios telling them that he was just a lookout. The younger suspects, who are brothers, told police that Rios was full of shit and he’d also participated in the brutal beatings of the men.…
MILTON, WI – Two people were hurt in a three-vehicle rollover accident caused by an 11-year-old boy pointing an Airsoft gun out the rear window of a car.
The accident happened last week on Highway 59 in Milton, near Highway N. A female driver told investigators a boy leaned out the back window of the car in front of her pointing a gun.
She immediately slammed on her brakes, causing the car following behind her to ram into the back of her vehicle before swerving into the opposite lane of traffic, hitting an SUV head-on and causing it to rollover.
Surprisingly, no one was seriously injured. The driver of the SUV that rolled and the woman who initially slammed on her brakes were both taken to the hospital with minor injuries but released a short time later.
Authorities eventually identified the 11-year-old boy and his family, who were staying at a campground just down the road from where the accident happened. The boy’s grandmother had been driving and said she didn’t even know there had been an accident or that her grandson had been pointing the toy gun out the window.…
According to the child’s mother, she was waiting in the pick-up line at Edgemere Elementary, when her child came out of the school, shaking and crying. When asked why she was so upset, the girl reportedly responded, “Mama, they touched me down there.”
The girl went on to tell her mother the two ganged up on her in the bathroom. The boy, she said, pulled his pants down, then hers. He then allegedly sexually assaulted her while his older sister held her down.
The girl said she began screaming, but was threatened with physical harm. She stopped resisting, the child’s mother said, because she was outnumbered.
The girl and her mother were escorted to a local hospital where a rape exam was conducted. That exam apparently confirmed her injuries were consistent with sexual assault.
“I’m not just blaming the kids, I blame the teachers that are supposed to protect our kids when they’re at school.” said the mother.…
Richmond, VA – A 9-year-old boy was killed while trying to stop a teenager from raping his 11-year-old sister.
According to reports, the siblings were playing near some railroad tracks behind their home Thursday afternoon when they were approached by the teen who suddenly attacked the girl.
The boy tried to stop the teen from raping his sister, but was beaten to death. “From what I understand, the sister was raped and (the brother) tried to save her,” the children’s aunt, Jacqueline Smith. “And he was hit in the head with a brick and killed.”
Police were called to the scene after the girl was spotted running from the woods naked and bleeding. She initially told police that the person responsible for the rape and murder was a white man with scraggly hair. Police would later reveal the suspect was a teenage black male who threatened the victim into giving false information.
Richmond Police later reported they have a warrant out for the teen who is currently being evaluated at the Tucker Pavilion at Chippenham Medical Center.…
FAYETTEVILLE, NC — Police in Fayetteville have charged 17-year-old Tyt’ana Lisa-Nicole Johnson with attempted murder after they say she poisoned her grandmother’s collard greens with insecticide.
On Easter Sunday, Johnson got angry with her grandmother, Gaylon Moody, because Moody took her cell phone away for a week as a punishment. In response, Johnson waited until Moody left for church to pour termite killer into a pot of collard greens cooking on the stove.
Later that day, Moody and Clifton Evans returned home and sat down to eat their Easter dinner of collard greens with smoked pig tails, rice, baked chicken, peach cobbler and corn bread. Since you can cook collard greens in a pot of dog piss and not notice, they didn’t notice the termite killer. In fact, Evans liked it so much he had seconds.
But it wasn’t long before Moody and Evans began feeling the pain. “About an hour and a half later, we started getting sick,” Moody said. “My fingers started feeling numb, my chest, my face, my mouth.” The pair attempted driving themselves to the hospital, but found they were unable to do so.…
COEUR d’ALENE, ID – Police have arrested 14-year-old Eldon Samuel III and charged him with the brutal murder of his father and younger brother.
Police say Samuel called 911 Monday night to report a shooting had occurred at his family’s home. When police arrived, they found Samuel at the residence, along with the dead bodies of his father, Eldon Samuel Jr., 46, and his younger brother, Jonathan Samuel, 13.

Because I have written so many articles regarding teens killing family members, I have warned my kids that if I even perceive them as any form of a threat, I will beat them to death in their sleep without a moment’s hesitation.…
Ocala, FL — A 13-year-old girl and her 15-year-old boyfriend are in police custody after allegedly ambushing the girl’s mother, slitting her throat, in the hopes of living happily ever after. How fucking cute.
According to police, Yaquelin Galvez-Don lured her mom into the garage early Sunday morning, where the boyfriend, Pedro Solis, informed the woman that he wanted to be with her daughter… cause he could, like, take care of her and stuff. He also told her that she should not have hit him with a stick previously. (Methinks she didn’t hit him hard enough. Or often enough. Or with a big enough stick). Solis then reportedly slashed the woman’s throat and ran inside, intent on doing the same to his beloved’s father.
With the knife to his throat, Galvez-Don’s father pleaded with Solis to seek medical assistance for his wife. No word on what was said between the two, but whatever it was, it worked — he was left uninjured and Solis loaded the woman up and dropped her off at an emergency room.…
MULLICA TOWNSHIP, NJ — Residents of Mullica Township are rallying behind Kelly Mascio, a teacher for more than 15 years who was suspended after finding two students naked in her classroom bathroom and promptly reported it to a principal.
On Sept. 30, Mascio found two 5-year-olds — a boy and girl — inside her in-classroom bathroom together. Both were naked and told Mascio they were “having sex.” Mascio reported the incident to the principal, who then called police and the state Department of Youth and Family Services.
In response, Mascio was immediately suspended with pay even though police found no reason to pursue criminal charges against her and closed the case. Now Superintendent Brenda Harring-Marro has filed tenure charges against Mascio in an effort to have her fired permanently.
The Board of Education met Wednesday night to determine whether to certify the charges, but refused to inform the public — including about 200 people who came out to support Mascio — whether it had certified the complaint or not.
Mullica Township Education Association President Barbara Rheault said this was Mascio’s first year teaching kindergartners and that the day of the incident was a confusing one as children were moving in and out of Mascio’s classroom for MAPS benchmark testing.…
HOUSTON, TX – Police have arrested two teens, 17-year-old Jose Reyes and a 16-year-old classmate, in connection to the abduction, rape and murder of 15-year-old Corriann Cervantes.
Corriann Cervantes was last seen on Wednesday, but her body wasn’t found until early Saturday morning after someone went to investigate an open door at a vacant apartment. Houston police say the girl had been violently raped and then had her head bashed in with a toilet tank lid and an ashtray.
Even more disturbing is the fact that there was evidence of occult activity in the apartment and around the girl’s half-naked body. According to investigators, an upside-down cross had been carved into Cervantes’ stomach, and religious items had been placed around her body.
Reyes was arrested on Sunday after confessing to his part in the crime to a family member. He told police that he his 16-year-old friend both knew Cervantes from the alternative school they all attended. He said that they took the girl to the abandoned apartment where they both raped her before beating her to death when she tried to leave.…
VENANGO TOWNSHIP, PA — A 12-year-old boy in Pennsylvania is facing animal cruelty charges after police say he intentionally killed a dog by injecting the animal with air.
According to police, the boy stole some syringes from a neighbor and used them to inject air into the family dog, a Labrador mix. After being injected, the dog became ill for a week before dying. Police say the boy knew that by injecting air into the dog’s blood vessels, that the dog could die.
The investigation is continuing, but Trooper Jason Domenick says he expects theft and cruelty to animals charges to be filed against the boy in juvenile court.
“I’ve never hear of anybody doing that,” said LeRoy Stearns, executive director of the Crawford County Humane Society. “That’s a new one on me. I’m dumbfounded.”
After running this site for a decade, I’m definitely not dumbfounded. In just the last two years, we’ve reported on an 11-year-old girl who beat a puppy to death, an 11-year-old boy who drowned a dog in a hot tub, and a 12-year-old boy who hanged a dog just to watch it die.…
Mundelein, IL — A 14-year-old girl is facing three counts of murder after authorities say she stabbed her 11-year-old sister nearly 40 times. Apparently, her ungrateful little sister didn’t appreciate everything she had done for her.
“She indicated she was mad from the night before,” said Asst. State’s Atty. Claudia Kasten during a detention hearing for the teen. “She went downstairs to get a knife. . .With each stab wound, she said she was not thankful for what she (the older girl) had done.”
Kasten, citing the autopsy, told the court the teen stabbed the girl 30 times across the neck, chest and arms and slashed her face three times. The girl also suffered bruises to her chest, and non-penetrating knife wounds “too numerous to count,” meaning she probably was jumping away from the knife, police say.
Police learned of the attack early Tuesday morning after receiving a 911 call from the teen. Her initial story was that she woke to the sound of her sister’s screams just before 8:00 a.m.…
According to investigators, the girl was dropped off at home Friday and was apparently unhappy about it. The girl reportedly told police her mother, Toshia Edmonson, said something about “giving her away” and shoved her down on a couch.
Like something ripped from one of my own nightmares, the spawn waited until her mother fell asleep and armed herself with a kitchen knife. She then crept into her mother’s bedroom and got to stabbing, police said. Nine friggin’ times. This kid was more than just a little unhappy, methinks.
The commotion apparently woke the girl’s younger brother, who later told police he heard his mother screaming for the girl to stop it, and saw the both of them covered in blood.
Edmonson was apparently able to get her hands on the knife and fell on top of the child to stop the attack.
The girl reportedly told police she stabbed her mother because she was “so, so angry and frustrated with her.” She’s now cooling her little heels in the Henry Wade Juvenile Center.…
BAKERSFIELD, CA – A 17-year-old girl has been accused of murdering the 2-year-old boy she was supposed to be babysitting.
The teen was supposed to be caring for Kayden Webb while his mother was helping out at her own mother’s house. It’s not clear who called for help, but Webb stopped breathing around 3:15 a.m. Monday morning. Emergency crews transported Webb to a nearby hospital, but the boy would be pronounced dead a few hours later.
Later the same day, investigators said they’d developed enough probable cause to arrest the teen and book her into juvenile hall, accused of first-degree murder and assault on a child causing death. They have not reported exactly how the boy died, but Sheriff’s spokesman Ray Pruitt said there was evidence the boy had been assaulted.
“It’s our belief, at this point, that he died as a result of injuries that he sustained while he was with the female suspect,” Pruitt told reporters. “We were able to develop information that leads us to believe that she’s responsible for his death.”
Neighbors say the teen was homeless and Webb’s mother had let her stay in her home because she didn’t want the teen living on the street.…
Knoxville, TN — I’m a little bit late with this one. Ok, a whole lot late….
drugs alcohol procrastination my volunteer work at the local soup kitchen really takes up a lot of my free time, ya know. Anyways, an unidentified 15-year-old boy was arrested Monday, after police say he tried to roast his teacher by using a lighter to ignite her hair and shirt.
According to police, 23-year-old Gabriela Penalba had turned her back to her students that morning at West High School, when the boy walked up behind her with a cigarette lighter and set her shirt and hair on fire.
Fortunately, the flames were extinguished by her not-so-psycho students before Penalba suffered any burns to the skin.
