MESQUITE, TX – A daycare owner is in some trouble after her childcare methods were called into question, specifically her method of leaving children tied to car seats for up to seven hours per day.

Any daycare owner will tell you that one of the biggest challenges of the business is keeping the little tykes occupied.

Rebecca Anderson found a creative solution that has her in hot water with the authorities.

Said authorities had their attention directed to the 60-year-old Mesquite, TX woman, who ran a licensed daycare out of her home, by the parents of a six-month-old who had put a video camera in the infant’s car seat.

The video that they captured showed part of Anderson’s modus operandi: after yanking the kid out of the car seat, she fed him something out of a syringe.

This was on Thursday, September 13th. Police raided her house of horrors the next afternoon.

When they served the search warrant, Anderson told them that there were five children on site. There were actually nine.…

MISSOULA, MT — Man accused of leaving a 5-month-old baby in the woods after a car crash because the baby was “very heavy.”

Francis Carlton Crowley is unconscionably lazy. And just a teensy bit high.

On Saturday, September 8th, deputies were dispatched to Lolo Hot Springs, Montana after receiving a disturbance complaint involving a man making threats and claiming to have a gun.

When they finally located Crowley, he was disoriented and nonsensical, but they were able to determine two things (besides the obvious fact that he was as fucked-up as a football bat); one: he had been in a car crash at some point earlier in the day, and two: a five-month-old baby that had been “left in his care” was missing.

The latter of the two was obviously more important to deputies, but Crowley was of little assistance; he wasn’t sure what had become of the infant. Maybe he was lying on the side of the road, maybe he was buried in the woods. All Crowley was certain of was the reason he abandoned the infant: the child was “very heavy.”

A search team consisting of local, state and federal authorities scoured the area.…

EMERSON, NE – A Nebraska couple have pleaded not guilty to charges they deprived their two teenage boys from food and showers.

The Busker’s kids are hungry. And stinky.

Why? Because the Buskers are assholes. Cheap assholes.

On Wednesday August 8th, Blaine Busker, 41, and Donella Busker, 38, of Emerson, Nebraska, were arrested for the mistreatment of two teenaged boys that were under their care.

Local media reports refer to the boys as their “sons,” but the story linked above notes that the Buskers had received a total of $5,475 from the state of Nebraska “from February through June to care for the children,” and the duration of the abuse was specified as being from January 1st through June 18th, so it looks like the boys are actually foster children.

Which doesn’t excuse the starvation, privation and abuse that they had to endure.

Even with all that money coming in, the Buskers begrudged the two (presumably) growing boys proper nutrition, so much so that they kept the refrigerator and kitchen cupboards padlocked to prevent any surreptitious snacking.…

WINSTON-SALEM, NC – Two women were arrested after they recorded themselves letting three children smoke what appeared to be marijuana and posted the video on Facebook.

Idiots love Facebook.

They love to post the minutiae of their meaningless little lives. They love to post the drama that dominates their days, and the naughtiness that consumes their nights. But most of all, they like to post the incriminating evidence that ultimately will be their undoing.

Just ask these two nitwits from North Carolina.

Michaela Mary-Elizabeth Pearson, 21, and Candice Jasmine Little, 18, both of Winston-Salem, NC, got busted for being a bit too giving.

Winston-Salem is a town that made its fortune on the backs of tobacco smokers the world over, but these two were smoking something else when they got the bright idea to share their stash with the young children that they were babysitting.

So share they did, getting an 18-month-old, a 2-year-old and a 3-year-old nice and blunted, because nothing screams “responsible babysitter” like returning the kids you have been watching higher than they were when you got them.…

DRAPER, UT – A couple are accused of running a drug operation out of their home and feeding their toddlers pot to keep them quiet.

Jacob Francis Sickler, 28, and Katie Jennifer Blackham, 40, are entrepreneurs. And they figured out a revolutionary way to keep the kids from fussin’!

Unfortunately for them, they are likely to go to jail for their innovative new approach. And their business.

It seems that authorities in Draper, Utah take a dim view of freelance special-brownie-peddlin’. Who’d have guessed?

You’d think that it was all the bragging about their brilliant business venture that set the cops wise to the Dynamic Duo, but it was actually family members. Plural.

It seems that relatives were concerned enough about the couple’s three- and four-year-old children to drop dime on them, telling the Division of Child and Family Services that the kids were exposed to drug use, were dirty and unkempt, and were losing weight due to the neglect.

Neglected kids are often fussy, but not these two; the Wonder Twins were feeding the wee ones weed to keep them quiet.…

COLUMBIA, MO – A couple in Missouri have been arrested after police say the woman prostituted her severely disabled 14-year-old daughter in exchange for money and drugs.

Last year, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a tip regarding the disabled teen “being left in hotel rooms with strange men.”

The tipster told investigators the teen has a mental capacity of a two- or three-year-old and suffered from cerebral palsy, autism, and deafness.

They said the girl was being left alone in hotel rooms with strange men for long periods of time.

Police immediately took the girl into protective custody and learned what was going on with the girl and these men in these hotel rooms and why.

Allegedly, the girl’s mother, 49-year-old Renee Collins, and her mother’s boyfriend, 44-year-old William Thomas Jr., were prostituting the girl in exchange for money and cocaine.

The teen told police she had been raped by men after they offered Collins cocaine and in one instance, the “bad men” put a needle in the girl’s arm and injected her with “medicine” after they were done raping her.…

MUNSON, PA — Three Pennsylvania men are facing a whole heap of charges after police say they banged several different species of farm animals several times a week for about 4-5 years.

And yes, they captured all that sweet, sweet lovin’ on video.

Police received a tip from a 16-year-old boy that lived on what is being called a “makeshift farm” with 41-year-old Terry Wallace, 32-year-old Matthew Brubaker, and 34-year-old Marc Measnikoff.

This same teen boy informed police the men used some sort of specially designed V-shaped pen to facilitate the sexual contact between man and beast. The boy also claims he was forced to assist with restraining the animals while the trio did their thing.

The victims included dogs, female horses, a cow and a goat.

Police claim that a search of the property led to the discovery of a large volume of homemade videos, cameras and recording equipment.

In addition to the combined 1,400+ counts of animal cruelty and 1,400+ counts of sexual intercourse with an animal, the men were charged with child endangerment and corruption of minors.…

CALDWELL, ID – A woman who knew her husband was molesting their children may be protected from prosecution because of Idaho’s “faith healing” exemptions.

What’s worse than knowing that your husband is molesting your children for 17 years and not doing anything about it?

Knowing that your husband is molesting your children for 17 years and not doing anything about it, because God.

Meet Sarah Kester, alleged mother in Caldwell, Idaho and anointed in the Lord to protect her ne’er-do-well husband Lester Kester and his wayward, perverted pickle.

Lester Kester. That’s right. Somebody had sadistic parents. And prescient, too: it rhymes with “molester.”

Well, actually he’s Lester Kester, Junior. It’s really wrong like that.

They say “yesterday’s bitch is tomorrow’s abuser.” Maybe that’s why Lester molested all four of his daughters, some of them starting at age one.

He’s not likely to get away with it, but his wife might.

You see, the Kester clan is part of a small, insular Pentecostal sect known as Followers of Christ. The Followers appear to be best known for their practice of faith healing and their concomitant shunning of modern medicine.…

RIO RANCHO, NM – The 6-year-old girl found dead in her home’s garage was naked from the waist down and had damage to her genitals.

Ariana Jade Romeo was found dead on Saturday morning inside her home’s garage, which was also a makeshift bedroom described as being in “total disarray” by police.

Her body was in bloody sheets on a piece of foam that was acting as a mattress. The girl was not wearing pants or underwear and there was damage to her genitals.

Lying nearby was a marijuana pipe and prescription medications.

How the girl died has not been released, but search warrants stated police were looking for items that could be used to strangle or beat someone.

Neighbors say the girl lived at the home with her mother and older kids were often seen going in-and-out of the home. She had only been living at the home for a short time.

While no one has been arrested at this time, here’s some interesting information regarding the man who owns the home, 63-year-old Winston Scates.…

POLK COUNTY, FL – Police have arrested a woman after they say she encouraged her boyfriend to beat her 2-year-old son on multiple occasions, beatings that led to the boy’s death.

Police were called to a home early Tuesday morning where they found 2-year-old Harley Don Hiatt Jr. unresponsive.

The boy had visible bruising on his arms and legs, injuries the boy’s mother, 26-year-old Shannon Short, said came from beatings doled out by her boyfriend, 26-year-old Christian Thompson.

Hiatt was taken to the hospital where it was determined he had bleeding on the brain, among other injuries. He was pronounced dead a few hours later.

An autopsy would reveal that aside from numerous bruises on his face that appeared to be caused by a belt, various scars and scratches, Hiatt also had a lacerated bowel that led to peritonitis and brain hemorrhaging.

When police questioned Short about these major injuries, she told them that Thompson was the one who had cared for the boy in the few days before his death.…

ARLINGTON, TN – A mother in Tennessee has been charged after she left her 6-month-old child in a car so she could go into a restaurant to drink Margaritas.

A couple were leaving the Cazadores Mexican Grill one evening last month when they heard a baby crying in the parking lot.

After a quick search, they found a baby in the back seat of a vehicle that was not running with the windows partially rolled down. Even worse, the doors were unlocked.

The outside temperature outside at the time was 92 degrees so the temperature inside the vehicle were quite a bit higher. The couple stated the baby did not seem to need emergency medical assistance, but she was sweating and obviously not happy about her situation.

The couple called 911 and emergency responders arrived at the scene to check on the child. It was only then that 26-year-old Rachel Vanwagner ran out of the restaurant barefoot to claim the infant.

She told police she purposefully left her child in the car for about 30 minutes so she could take part in the National Tequila Day festivities and had only been in the restaurant for about 30 minutes.…

GREEN, OH– Man arrested after he is caught sexually assaulting a 4-year-old boy on a home surveillance camera.

Here’s a story out of Ohio that will have you lose a little faith in humanity.

According to investigators, 28-year-old Dean Davis was captured on home surveillance video sexually assaulting his girlfriend’s son.

Even worse? The boy’s mother, 31-year-old Samantha Ward, knew about the sexual assault but did not report it.

Why she did not report the sexual abuse is anyone’s guess, but I am betting it is because she has also been accused of using the prescription medication intended for her son.

No kid in the house no drugs, maybe? Who the hell knows. People are shit.

Davis has been charged with gross sexual imposition, sexual imposition and endangering children and is being held in the Summit County Jail on a $30,000 bond.

I hope his fellow inmates are making his stay a comfortable one.

Ward was arrested and charged with felony drug theft and endangering children. She’s since been released on bond but more charges are pending, according to Inspector Bill Holland.…
