Midland, TX – A town in Texas is mourning the loss of four veterans during a parade accident in which a train struck a Show of Support parade float.
Yesterday evening, the ninth annual Show of Support parade was taking 24 veterans and their spouses and girlfriends from the DoubleTree by Hilton to the Horseshoe in south Midland where the Hunt for Heroes banquet was to be held. Afterwards, the veterans were being treated to an all-expenses paid weekend hunting trip, while their spouses would be treated to a variety of activities in Midland.
The parade float transporting the veterans consisted of two separate flatbed tractor trailer trucks. Each were adorned with American flags with two dozen veterans and their spouses sitting in chairs set up on the back of each flatbed tractor-trailer.
At one point during their route to the Horeshoe, the trucks had to cross over a set of railroad track. Police were reportedly directing traffic as the first truck made it over the tracks but then had to stop. This left the second trailer stuck on the tracks with nowhere to go.…Continue Reading
Skokie, IL – A lawsuit filed Tuesday against Skokie School District 68 officials alleges that teachers were negligent in their treatment of 6-year-old Rahul Chandani when he fell on the playground last winter. Were they? You decide…
On Jan. 3 of last year, Chandani reportedly slipped on a mound of snow in the playground at Devonshire Elementary School. Court documents state that doctors would later establish that his fall resulted in a fractured tibia and a hematoma to his head. At the time of the fall, though, the only thing that is known for sure is that the fall made him a whiny little brat who – get this – wanted to be carried back to the school. Oh c’mon…
“His teacher told him, ‘You’re a big boy — I can’t carry you,’” the boy’s mother, Priya Chandani, told a local news reporter. “She told him to walk back, but his leg was broken so he fell again and then had to crawl at least 200-300 feet [across the icy playground] back to the school building.”
The boy’s mother added, “If someone did that to me as an adult, I’d slap them.”
According to the lawsuit, the boy made it back to the school where he complained of dizziness.…Continue Reading
According to investigators, the boy shot himself back on August 26, but wasn’t seen at the hospital until October 5. The initial complaint at that time was that the child was having difficulty walking. Now, I’m not a doctor, but I’m guessing that the bullet found lodged in the kid’s hip may have played a factor in said gimpiness.
The boy’s mother, 26-year-old Quinisha Edwards, turned herself in Friday night – her bond was set at $100,000. Mom’s boyfriend, 25-year-old Vincent Massey, turned himself in on Saturday morning and is being held on a $185,000 secured bond. Both are now facing charges of felony child abuse, failure to store a firearm to protect a child, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Massey faces an additional charge of possession of a firearm by a felon.…Continue Reading
Louisville, KY - Micheatria Donelson has been awarded over one million dollars, still a fraction of what she was asking for, after enduring a truly horrific ordeal of witnessing her premature baby decapitated during birth.
A jury decided yesterday to award Donelson the money, finding that doctors were at least somewhat at fault for what happened to her in the hospital back in 2006.
Donelson wasn’t near pregnant enough to be having a baby. According to the defense, she was only 21 weeks, although her side argued it was 24. Regardless of the time period, she found herself bleeding and in the hospital. Doctors were far from optimistic about the chances of the baby surviving.
Dr. Joseph Bilotta utilized a ‘cerclage’: a string used to keep the cervix closed and my word of the day. The defense claims it would be physically impossible to deliver a baby with the instrument in place, although Donelson’s side claimed that’s exactly why things went the way they did. Whether the cerclage was in place or not, no one argued about what happened.…Continue Reading
Bakersfield, CA — Alberto Castaneda, 51, and Maria Banuelos, 59, were arrested late Wednesday night after animal control officers visited their home on Weedpatch Highway (yee haw!). The officers were called with a report of an animal in distress and they did, indeed, find a 1-year-old black lab mix in bad condition.
The county animal control veterinarian believes the dog was severely injured in a car crash. Both sides of his pelvis are fractured and his hip is dislocated. To make matters worse, though, the Kern County Animal Control Veterinarian believes that Jethro and Ellie May tried to treat the dog on their own by cutting off part of the dog’s left hind leg.
The dog’s injuries are severe.
“This person did not have the proper equipment and drugs to treat this animal,” said Dr. Cynthia Martinez. “Just imagine a 70 pound dog getting hit with the force to be able to break both sides of his pelvis that’s very painful and not getting the care, just horrendous to think about the pain.”
According to a news release, Castaneda and Banuelos were immediately arrested on felony charges of suspicion of severing the leg and failing to provide veterinary care.…Continue Reading
Fall River, Mass. – This story is quickly going viral, so I figured what the hell, it’s more interesting than the Walmart hammer attack I was about to post. Police are saying that the woman pulled from a public swimming pool on Tuesday likely drowned on Sunday and remained floating in the pool for almost three days without anyone noticing.
Marie Joseph, 36, went to the Vietnam Veterans’ Pool at Lafayette Park with another family on Sunday and helped escort a 9-year-old on a slide that dumps its occupants into the deep end of the pool. The boy says after he hit the water, Joseph came down the slide unexpectedly and landed on him. He never saw her come out of the water.
The boy told lifeguards, but they allegedly ignored him. Joseph’s family realized she was missing when she never returned home and became increasingly worried after pool personnel returned some clothing, a cell phone and a Massachusetts identification card they had found at the pool after closing on Sunday evening.
The pool was open for business Monday and Tuesday, packed with swimmers beating the heat who never noticed or saw poor Joseph’s body floating in the water.…Continue Reading
Bronx, NY — Kim Crawford, 21-year-old mother of two, erm…make that one, was booked on murder charges over the weekend after police say she beat her son to death because he broke the television while playing Nintendo Wii.
And, well..she didn’t just beat him, she beat him and neglected to seek medical attention, leaving the kid to suffer for nearly a week. The medical examiner’s office ruled 5-year-old Jamar died Friday from blunt trauma to the chest and an infection to his lacerated pancreas and intestine.
Prosecutors claim Crawford told police several different stories about how Jamar was injured. First, she claimed he simply got sick, went to sleep and never woke up. Then she claimed he fell and injured himself while playing at the park. Questioned further, Crawford cracked. She reportedly told police she “smacked” Jamar on his stomach and back on June 13, “harder than she had ever hit him before.” She told police she watched as the child vomited and suffered in pain for days, neglecting to seek medical help because she was worried the hospital staff would see the bruises and she’d be arrested.…Continue Reading
The incident happened at Ozona Blue when knuckle-head waiter Ian Monsalvo was preparing a double-order of the dessert. He was using a bottle of really flammable (151 proof) rum to impress his guests with a flare-up from the already burning dessert.
It’s common knowledge that liquor used in flambe recipes should not be poured straight from the liquor bottle so flames can’t travel back into the bottle and fuel the fire. This, as any amateur pyromaniac will tell you, is a pretty goddamn stupid way to make a Molotov Cocktail.
When the fire shot back up into the bottle and, according to witnesses, created ‘an explosion of fire,’ a surprised Monsalvo drew back the bottle, spraying customers at the table with a sugary, napalm blast. Luckily Nick Salzer, a cook at the restaurant, had just completed his fire/ems certification and was able to assist the woman who took the worst of it.
Katie Hudgins, a 25-year-old elementary school teacher, was seated the closest to the waiter and ended up with the worst injuries after her clothing caught on fire.…Continue Reading
Bandera, TX – A 5-day-old baby was removed from a Texas home last week after authorities discovered the condition of the home. The investigation of the home was prompted by a Bandera EMS call for a sick woman on April 27. Upon arriving and seeing the conditions of the home, Bandera EMS called the police.
In his report, Bandera Police Lt. Neil McLean described the kitchen as “unusable…any countertop space was covered with trash and maggots… empty whiskey bottles laying around as well as dog feces laying throughout the residence.” Mclean reported that the bathroom had “standing feces in the toilet and approximately five to seven inches of feces in the bath tub [pictured]. The bathroom floor was covered in feces.”
Invesigators reported that the baby was left alone in a baby carrier on a bed in the master bedroom while the parents sat on a couch in their front yard. The report described that the 5-day-old appeared unbathed.
“You could tell by the umbilical cord that the baby was not bathed,” Police Chief James Eigner said.…Continue Reading
Waco, TX – According to police, 23-year-old Kyeshia Gaines was arrested after her unsecured 15-month-old child fell from her vehicle and was run over by another car. Police reported that Gaines’ child, 15-month-old Kingston Lang, fell out of a car driven by his mother at around 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
A witness told police that after the child fell from her mother’s car, it was promptly run over by a gold colored Mercury Grand Marquis.
Jonathan Howard, a witness to the accident, told reporters on Monday that he saw the toddler fall out of the car and then saw a second vehicle roll over him. Howard said the toddler “had blood on his face and tire marks on his back.”
The boy’s mother evidently didn’t notice the infant had fallen out of the car’s backseat, as evidenced by the long period of time between the child falling out of the moving vehicle and her returning to the scene. Police said that after approximately five minutes, Gaines returned and reportedly grabbed the child from the roadway.…Continue Reading
Jacksonville, FL – 30-year-old Dana Michell Anderson was arrested and booked on charges of aggravated manslaughter on a child younger than 18 years old by culpable negligence about a week after the death of her boyfriend’s 2-year-old son, Masia Wright. According to authorities, Masia’s father, Ernest Wright, returned home from school on November 15 to find his son unresponsive. The child was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital – an autopsy revealed Masia died from methadone toxicity. During questioning earlier this week, Dana admitted to leaving a brightly colored sippy cup with about 80 mg. of methadone in it on the dresser of her bedroom. Ernest believes his son thought it was juice and chugged it down. “I know she loved my son and she wouldn’t do anything like that,” Ernest said. “She just wasn’t thinking.” Dana, who had raised the child since he was about 3-months-old, is now behind bars on $1 million bond. Police say she has been arrested more than a dozen times since 2006 on charges ranging from petty theft to possession of crack.…Continue Reading
Dallas, TX — Have you seen this douche? If so, police would like to have a word with ya. Authorities say that after 34-year-old Miguel Torres Sr. wrecked his Ford Expedition late Thursday night, he just up and took off, leaving three of his four children behind. Torres reportedly slammed into a light pole and lost control of the vehicle, sending it spinning. His 5-year-old daughter, Mia, was thrown from the SUV, car seat and all, and landed in the middle of the street. Torres kept driving. He stopped at a park about a mile away, took his 11-month-old daughter Emma from the vehicle and beat feet – leaving his 6- and 9-year-old sons inside the SUV. The 9-year-old, who was not injured, was able to flag down help for his brother Thomas, who suffered a serious gash to the head. “They said [Miguel Jr.] was screaming for his dad and his dad just kept going,” said the children’s aunt, Olgalivia Salazar. Meanwhile, Torres had stopped off at his mother-in-law’s house and deposited a bloodied Emma into her arms before being picked up by an unknown person.…Continue Reading
SANTA FE — A father dozed off while in his idling car with his 1-year-old daughter waiting to pick up another child from Cesar Chavez Elementary School. He was awakened by another parent who was frantically banging on his window to inform him that his daughter was currently being choked to death. The little girl had been unrestrained in the backseat when she put her head outside the car’s open window before it was somehow rolled up, wedging her neck between the window and the door frame. She was set free but was unresponsive. A school nurse administered CPR until she was rushed to the hospital and then later airlifted to the University of New Mexico Hospital where she is in critical condition. The father says he wasn’t asleep for long, but medical examiners say she had been deprived of oxygen for 8 to 10 minutes. No charges have been filed at this time, but the man could face negligence charges if police find anything in the car that contradicts the father’s story.…Continue Reading
Hanover, MA – Don’t know what to do with your pesky old father while you go out and earn a living? Can’t afford to stick him in a home? Two words: Duct. Tape. That’s right, just duct tape the old dude to a chair and you bought yourself hours of freedom, baby. You’re probably saying to yourself, “Sounds great! But what’s the catch?” Well, some people won’t appreciate your inventiveness and ability to think out of the box, and you may just find yourself in a spot of legal trouble…kinda like John Hallinan. He’s accused of binding his 93-year-old father in duct tape and leaving him home alone to roll around in his own shit all day. Deputies showed up at the home Hallinan shares with his father after receiving a tip from a group of ladies who regularly cleaned the home. They found the elderly man laying on the kitchen floor wearing nothing but duct tape, a dirty t-shirt, and a shit filled diaper. Police said the man was near death. He was extremely thin, dehydrated, incoherent, very dirty, and covered in bruises and sores.…Continue Reading
Albuquerque, NM – When Michelle Charley failed to show up at school to collect her daughter and nephews Tuesday afternoon, school officials called the safe house where Charley and the children had been staying. Staffers at the safe house were able to reach Charley, but she told them she was too drunk to go anywhere. Knowing the woman had a 6-month-old son, social workers paid a visit to the woman’s apartment to check on the infant. When they couldn’t make contact with her, the police were called. When Officers Joey Tosta and Nick Wheeler arrived at the apartment, they found Charley in the bedroom, highly intoxicated, with a man she had met at a gas station earlier that day. Her infant was reportedly laying on the bed, covered from head to toe in flaky, crusty dried shit. According to authorities, shit had leaked out of the child’s diaper. He had it on his back and stomach, up and down his legs, and in the folds of his neck. The poor kid even had shit on the inside and outside of his eyelids. It also appeared as if he had been gagged with a soiled diaper wipe.…Continue Reading
PARAGOULD, AR - Sometime around last December, Abigail Farmer had the misfortune of being born to Charles and Brittany Farmer. She made it to around 4-months-old with her meth smoking parents before dad rolled on top of her while taking a nap on the couch. Not realizing his fatass just shoved his daughter into the back cushions along with the loose change and remote, Abigail died gasping for breath. Everything was chalked up to a tragic accident until last week when the medical examiner found meth in Abigail’s body. Snyder said someone was likely smoking meth with the child in their arms. In a big shock to everyone, both Charles and Brittany both tested positive for the drug. This new information led to both Charles and Brittany both being charged with misdemeanor homicide. But none of this deters Brittany’s very loud neighbors neighbors, who you can watch in the video, who claim she is innocent of any wrong doing. As for that hot young, thing fixing her hair at around 0:54 mark, give old Morbid a ring.…Continue Reading
Minneapolis, MN – Investigators are calling it one of the worst cases of child abuse they have ever seen. A 6-year-old boy was viciously beaten because he supposedly misbehaved at school. When interviewed by authorities, the child said “my daddy whooped my butt.” His “daddy” isn’t his daddy at all – he’s mommy’s boyfriend. According to authorities, 37-year-old Troy Lamont Clay tied the child to a pole in the basement and flogged him 60-100 times with an electrical cord. And the child’s mother, 30-year-old Jacquelyn Wander Williams, just sat there and watched. “Mom was right there, she sat down, watched it happen and did not lift a finger to stop it, nor did she lift a hand to give this kid first aid, didn’t bring him to the hospital, didn’t treat him,” said Minneapolis police Lt. Greg Reinhardt, head of the department’s child abuse unit. There was bruising from the child’s neck down to the top of his butt. “When the child was brought to the hospital and they did an exam, the doctor looked at his back and there wasn’t a square inch of the child’s back that didn’t have a mark on it.” He went on to say the beating was barbaric, like something out of the dark ages.…Continue Reading
Albuquerque, NM – Monique Cotto may not be a “police person,” but she is an ignorant fucking douche who should have her baby making factory condemned, torn down and burned. Immediately. When she showed up at Metro Detention Center to visit with her baby daddy, a guard noticed her 18-month-old son was sporting a rather strange fashion accessory – the child had a plastic handcuff locked around his ankle. “He was crying a lot, he looked in pain,” said Corrections Officer Lieutenant Jason Ellis. The cuff was cinched so tightly it left purple impressions on the boy’s skin after it was removed. Monique was arrested for suspected child abuse. You’re just dying to hear her brilliant explanation, aren’t you? According to her, two days prior to the jail visit, she supposedly left her son alone with a friend. When she came home, she found the boy with handcuffs on both legs and a pillow covering his face, nearly suffocating him. Also according to her, the boy was gasping for air when she arrived.…Continue Reading

Murrieta, CA – Carrie McKinney, 22, was at her boyfriend’s home Saturday morning when she placed her 6-month-old son, who was strapped in a car seat, on the floor. Carrie then headed into another room with her boyfriend, Doug Ritchey, leaving the infant alone in a room with Doug’s 70-pound pit bull and 60-pound pit bull mix. After an unknown period of time, Carrie and Doug heard the child screaming – when they entered the room, Carrie noticed one of the dogs had the boy’s diaper in it’s mouth. One or both of the dogs had attacked the baby…had torn his diaper off and chewed on his scrotum. Though Carrie and Doug were fortunate enough to rescue the infant before further damage could be done, they were too late to save the kid from losing his testicles – they’d been chewed off. Yes, the child’s testicles are gone forever and he will require testosterone for the rest of his natural life. Jesus. Fucking. Christ. Thanks for lookin’ out, Ma! Though no arrests have been made, Carrie has temporarily lost custody of her son and could potentially face criminal neglect charges.…Continue Reading
