WATSONVILLE, CA – Police have arrested 18-year-old Barbara Garcia on suspicion of child abuse after police obtained cell phone video of her hitting her boyfriend’s 15-month-old girl.
While her boyfriend is at work, Garcia takes care of the man’s daughter from a previous relationship. Police were called to the couple’s home Thursday afternoon after a neighbor called to report hearing a woman hitting a child.
When police arrived, they found the girl unresponsive with bruises around her eyes. She was taken to a hospital with a traumatic head injury. During their investigation, they were shown a video taken by another neighbor showing Garcia striking the 15-month-old on Wednesday.
“The previous day, a neighbor heard the child crying and the sound of a disturbance coming from the residence and went to investigate. Through an open window, a neighbor saw and took video from their cell phone,” said police in a statement.
The video shows Garcia seated on the floor when, “Without provocation, Garcia violently swung her hand and slapped the child on the head, knocking the child off her feet as she flew several feet away and lay motionless on the ground,” Watsonville police Sgt.…Continue Reading
On Sunday, March 10, 2013, at around 4:45A.M., a man and his girlfriend noticed three or four unknown black males standing outside of the Friendly Bar, a gay bar located on the corner of Chartres and Marigny Streets. The man said one of the males approached him and tried to strike up a conversation, but while he was trying to tell the man he wasn’t interested in talking, the suspects started following a man in his 30s who walked by them.
The man and his girlfriend then watched as the three subjects began beating the man with bottles. The attack was captured on surveillance video and showed the three black males beating the man with bottles, even when he was on the ground. One of the suspects can be seen walking away, then returning to kick the victim in the head.…Continue Reading
Chicago, IL – Here’s a story that is going to get some of you angry, especially Jaded. Police have released video footage of two men violently robbing an 86-year-old WWII vet in the lobby of his apartment building.
Police say the victim had just finished running some errands, including a stop at the bank, when a shuttle van dropped him off at his building.
As seen in the video, once inside, the elderly man is grabbed from behind and choked until he passes out. A second man then takes $500 hidden in the victim’s shoe. After searching the man, his attackers drop him on the floor, letting the door close on his head.
“This is one of those crimes that hits us at the pit of our stomach,” Chicago Police Officer John Mirabelli said.
The victim, who served in the South Pacific during World War II, was treated and released from the hospital. He said he is thankful for police and their continued efforts to capture these two men, and thankful all he lost that day was his money.…Continue Reading
Montreal – This story was originally written and submitted by The LadyDragon, but it was done before all the details had emerged. I hate to hijack it, but there was no way I could get all the new details into her original article without completely re-writing it. I have included her original article in quotes.
It’s a gruesome story out of Canada that, at first, seemed to involve three separate crimes that would quickly turned out to involve just one murderer and his unfortunate victim. Be warned, some of the details are disturbing.
“A bloody package containing a severed human foot has been mailed to the Conservative Party’s downtown Ottawa headquarters according to police. One Conservative Party source said this first package was a simple white box with a red cartoon heart drawn on it. The package was addressed to the Conservative Party of Canada rather than a specific individual.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s own campaign manager Jenni Byrne was present when the foot was received by a stunned receptionist. “Upon arrival, officers noted that the (box) package possibly had blood stains on it.…Continue Reading
Bicyclist Frank Pavlick, 50, was hit Monday afternoon by the teen driver while riding in the northbound lanes of the Fahy Bridge.
“The … guy didn’t even try to pass me,” Pavlick said. “It was an explosion, literally. The tire exploded, the rim exploded.”
Video shows that immediately after the impact, the car driver sped off. Up ahead was a LANTA municipal bus. The bus driver, seeing the accident behind him, maneuvered his vehicle to stop the fleeing driver. A second driver then boxed him in from behind after checking to see if Pavlick was ok.
Bethlehem Police Commissioner Jason Schiffer and Mayor John Callahan honored the two men responsible for detaining the hit-and-run driver. Those men, Richard Gubish Jr., 43, and Jud Smull, 17, were commended for their quick thinking. Pavlick, the rider, expressed his gratitude to both men.
“These guys, I’ve been waiting to meet and say thanks in public and in private,” Pavlick said during remarks.…Continue Reading
This time it’s out of Rhode Island where four girls, two 12-year-olds and two 13-year-olds, have been charged after a tape of them beating a 12-year-old girl was posted online.
The victim’s mother, Holly Gingerella, downloaded the video before it was removed from Youtube and took it to police. After their investigation, officers charged all four girls; two with assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy, two with simple assault and conspiracy.
The video shows a 12-year-old girl spending most of her time on the grounding fending off the kicks, hits, bites, and scratches of her attackers. Gingerella says her daughter was friends with the girls and the fight was the result of her daughter saying a boy was cute.
She says they lured her there in order to ambush her and then wouldn’t let her leave. She says they threatened to beat her again if she went home and told anyone and pretended to be her daughter when they texted Gingerella asking if she could spend the night with the girls.…Continue Reading
Austin, TX – For renowned police critic and Grits for Breakfast blogger Scott Henson, it could have been so perfect. On the night in question, the very white Henson was walking his black 5-year-old granddaughter home through a park. Someone at the park called 911, alleging that a white man was chasing and attempting to kidnap a young black child. As you might expect, police swarmed the area, and that’s where the drama begins.
The following Saturday, the aggravated Henson took to the blog, crafting a hypercritical version of events titled, “Me, APD and ‘Babysitting While White,’ Part Deux”. He begins by linking the incident to a question posed on the blog previously: “Is babysitting while white reasonable suspicion for police questioning?” It’s every bit as reasonably suspicious as Driving While Black or Painting While Hispanic, if you ask me.
Henson describes being stopped by an officer who asked his granddaughter if she knew him. When she responded that it was her grandfather, the officer let them continue on their way. Just minutes later, however, as they crossed a street a mere two blocks from home, multiple squad cars appeared. Cops jumped out of their cars, tasers ready, and shouted at him to step away from the girl. When he complied, Henson says he was “roughly cuffed” shortly before witnessing another officer “brusquely snatching” his granddaughter up and placing her in the back seat of a car.…Continue Reading
Lantana, Fl – Two high school girls posted a video of themselves ranting about the white people who “act black” at their school, as well as African-Americans in general, effectively turning their world to shit and placing their high school on alert.
In the four minute long video, two students at Santaluces High School giggle as they poke fun at African Americans at their school, including how they talk and those that wear weaves. One of the girls even says that they are ugly and stink before signing off by flashing peace signs while saying, “peace and love!”
As you can imagine, it didn’t take long before the video went viral — even making Tosh.0 and WorldStar HipHop (Ruh Roh!) — and the two girls were quickly paying dearly for their ignorance. Security was beefed up at the school once the video went public, a direct response to the long stream of online threats directed at the girls promising a “cracka beatdown.”
I wasn’t even going to bother with this story as everyone and their mother has jumped all over it.…Continue Reading
In case you are unable to see it, the video shows a young mother force feeding a toddler. The kid is obviously upset, but this does not stop the woman from shoving food into the kid’s mouth — even covering his mouth until he chokes.
From what I can gather, the video was filmed in secret by the child’s 14-year-old uncle who has been trying to get CPS involved with the family, to no avail. He claims there are worse things going on in the home and shot this video to give CPS as proof.
CPS is aware of the video and stated what you are watching is not child abuse. Shitty parenting? Sure… but not child abuse as she did not strike the kid with a closed fist and it would be impossible to prove she intended for the child to choke.…Continue Reading
Chicago, IL – Yesterday we posted about the teenagers who filmed themselves beating the snot out of a 17-year-old boy in a Chicago alley then posting the video on Youtube. Today police announced they have arrested the seven teenagers.
According to police spokesman Mike Sullivan, all of the teens were charged with one count each of robbery and aggravated battery. One of the teens, 17-year-old Raymond Palomino, was charged as an adult while the rest — a 15-year-old girl (!), two 16-year-old boys and three 15-year-old boys — were cited in juvenile delinquency petitions.
The video, which you can watch below, went viral after it was posted on Youtube by someone who may want to watch their back as it was instrumental in helping police identify the assailants who can be seen relentlessly pummeling the 17-year-old boy for over 3 minutes. The video shows them kicking, stomping, punching and choking the boy before robbing him of his gym shoes, wallet and money.
The victim didn’t suffer any major injuries and was treated at the hospital for a busted lip, bruises and some facial abrasions.…Continue Reading
Chicago, IL – Chicago police are questioning six youths and their involvement in the beating of a 17-year-old boy in a Chicago alley that was recorded and then posted it on Youtube.
If you cannot see the video below, it shows as many as seven people beating the kid’s ass. The assailants all look to be around the same age as the victim and can be seen kicking, stomping and punching the boy before they robbed him of his gym shoes, wallet and money.
Police haven’t said why the boy was targeted, but do say it was not racially motivated. You can hear one of the suspects tell the victim that he “fucked up” but other than that there is no reason given for the ass-whooping. As bad as it looks, the victim was taken to the hospital for a busted lip, bruises and some facial abrasions.
I’ve included the video below and while I don’t know if the kid deserved it or not, it’s a cringe inducing beating.
Texas – As a redditor (AuntieChrist) who mainly lurks in /r/wtf to keep an eye out for any interesting news articles, I have watched a video posted on Reddit blow the fcuk up this morning. The video shows a man beating the crap out of his teen daughter because she was downloading music and games on to her computer using Kazaa.
The video was made in 2004, but the girl getting assaulted has waited until now to upload the video because she “wanted the world to know the truth.” While most readers of D’D read articles here detailing abuse that make the following video look like family game night, I am posting it because the man doing the beating is William Adams, a Texas court-at-law judge.
You can watch the original video posted on Youtube, but in case it gets deleted I am embedding the video from NoDeleteButton.com.
If you watched the video, there is no doubt that what you witnessed was an assault. Normally I shy away from posting stories like this, as I prefer to post on stories in which someone has been accused of a crime, even though the video clearly shows Adams committing one.…Continue Reading
Houston, TX - Not much to say about this video as it is pretty self-explanatory, but for those of you who work for Nazi’s and cannot see embedded videos, it shows two men’s attempt to rob a convenience store abruptly interrupted by a clerk with a gun of his own.
Surveillance video captures the two men as they charge into the store armed with a gun. The armed robber shoots a clerk-in-training in the leg while his partner in crime, later identified as 22-year-old Harold Robertson, jumps over the counter and begins rummaging the shelves.
It’s about that time a second clerk grabs a gun off a shelf and shoots back, hitting Robertson twice in the upper body. I can almost hear Benny Hill music as Robertson scrambles back over the counter after getting shot, and I laugh every time I watch it.
Robertson ran to a house across the street and told the homeowner, Gerald Kilpatrick, that he was a victim of a carjacking and had been shot. Kilpatrick allowed him to rest on his porch, but was suspicious and called police.…Continue Reading
DUBLIN, Ohio — Let me apologize upfront for the obscene visual of a mother performing sexual acts on her 10-month-old son that I just now put in your head, but that’s exactly what the news is reporting one Ohio woman did — in front of a camera.
Police say that on August 30, 24-year-old Ashley Jessup recorded herself performing sexual acts on her baby, then sent the video to her boyfriend in Michigan.
That man’s former girlfriend found the video and contacted police who arrested Jessup the next day. Police say she did admit to the crime.
She’s now facing life in prison if convicted on two counts of rape, one count of endangering children and one count of pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor.
Spontaneous applause from strangers broke out in the courtroom after the charges against her were read.
She’ll be back in court on Monday for her arraignment so I’m sure we will have more details then.
Police are also reviewing the information to see if there will be any charges filed against the boyfriend, who already has had some equipment seized from his home.…Continue Reading
Dallas, TX — Here’s a crazy one for you and I’m pretty sure a first for D’D. A woman has been accused of forcing her 6-year-old daughter to record her having group sex with six men on multiple occasions.
They are not releasing the 24-year-old mother’s name to protect the little girl, but she is currently in jail on a third-degree felony charge of indecency with a child.
According to court documents, police received a tip that the woman was forcing her young daughter to film her having group sex and went to the apartment to check things out.
Members of the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center interviewed the girl who “detailed filming and taking photographs” of her mother engaged in sexual acts with different men.
The mom would admit to police that there were three separate incidents in which she had her daughter film her having sex with six men using a cellphone video recorder. I almost cannot comprehend how that even went down.
“Ok sweetie, now pan around the two men double-penetrating mommy…”
Police in San Antonio have arrested a 29-year-old woman accused of filming herself molesting a young girl. Reports are that a friend of Kristen Lea Bush was looking through her cell phone when he stumbled upon some videos of a young girl being sexually assaulted.
The video did not show Bush’s face but he recognized her voice and hands which, judging by the mugshot, probably made it look like the poor girl was being molested by two hams.
Police arrested Bush on Monday, just as she was about to leave town, on charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child, possession of child pornography and sexual performance of a child.…Continue Reading
ELYRIA, Ohio – A man has been charged with attacking a police officer in a police station and the entire ordeal was captured on video.
Anthony Wayne Thomas, 29, had been brought to the Elyria Police Station after his girlfriend had called police and accused him of domestic violence. While there, officers discovered that Thomas was wanted on a warrant for contempt of court.
As Thomas was being handcuffed, he allegedly told Officer Bill Witt that he could sense “the smell of fear” on him to which Witt ensured Thomas that he was mistaken. While at the police station, Thomas must wanted to see if Witt was lying or not when he proceeded to jump over the booking area counter and launch a volley of punches at Witt’s face.
During the ensuing struggle, you can see that Witt is starting to tire and that Thomas is continually trying to get Witt’s gun off his belt. There are no other officers around and Witt’s microphone had fallen off so he was unable to radio for help.…Continue Reading
St. Ann, MO - Ritenour High School student Dalton Heinle, 18, was arrested for using his cell phone to videotape his fellow students in various states of undress.
Police say Heinle was taken into custody Tuesday and was charged with criminal invasion of privacy. Police said school administrators contacted them after a student caught Heinle recording he and other students dressing and undressing.
“…some individuals on the phone that were identified by Ritenour staff as being students there but there’s a bunch of other people that we don’t know. Nobody knows,” said Breckenridge Hills Police Captain Scott Robinson. Police say the videos were shot in what appears to be bathrooms and locker rooms. Heinle is a member of the school’s swim team.
According to police, they are aware of seven victims who have been identified as Ritenour High School students. All were male and none knew they were being videotaped, police said. Parents reportedly received a letter and email from the school alerting them that an incident did take place at the school.…Continue Reading
