Clarisa Figueroa: Murdering Monster

THIS thing. There aren’t any decent descriptive words that come to mind to describe the woman I am about to tell you about. What happened to Marlen Ochoa-Lopez is beyond human comprehension and only monsters would do to her what Clarisa Figueroa and three people in her home have been accused of doing. She has been accused of luring the young expectant mother to her home before Marlen was strangled and her baby was cut…

Missing: Kenneth Howard, 22 months old

UPDATE: I am perfectly okay with eating as much crow as necessary when I can say FINALLY a happy ending with a missing child. Kenneth was found a short distance away from his home on a 50 foot incline. He is doing well and has been reunited with his family. Here we go again. I really hate hearing about missing kids lately because as it usually turns out, the child is murdered by his caretakers….

Anonymous Comes to Steubenville

It took “outsiders” to help raise voices and awareness to how the subject of rape was perceived in Steubenville, and around the world. It was GLORIOUS to watch the streets fill with people who were in attendance at the Steubenville rallies to support Jane Doe. It was even more amazing to witness the many who then took to the courthouse steps and use the platform to talk about their own stories and truths. I wish…

Steubenville Screenshots

Back in 2012 when I first heard about the rape case, I began researching publicly available social media to get an idea of what was going on because local media hadn’t provided much information. Within hours I had accumulated tons of information and decided to save screenshots of what I found because I was so appalled at what I was reading from those who were present, and others who were not but who were opining…

Trent Mays Accused of Sexual Assault…AGAIN

I really hate to say I told ya so, but…yeah…TOLD YA SO! I don’t think any of us that were involved in the Steubenville case or who followed the trial closely ever thought that Trent Mays would go silently into the night. Privately, we all discussed our fears that two years in juvenile detention was not long enough for him and that he would more than likely re-offend. His apology was more of an “I’m…

Where Is Amiah Robertson?

For as long as I have been blogging about missing children, my contrition for their parents has only grown worse. Generally, the outcomes are not good and a parent is usually involved. I feel no different with Amiah Robertson’s parents and caregivers. There is so much that is SO wrong with the information coming out of Indianapolis where she is from. She has been missing since last week. The dates are in conflict. One would…

Vinton County: Victim Blaming/Shaming and Lack of Bystander Intervention

This week 45-year old Dewey Thacker of MacArthur, Ohio was charged with crimes associated with doing nothing while a 12-year old wrestler was assaulted in the wrestling room at Vinton County High School. Seven wrestlers were involved in what some locals are referring to as “horseplay” but what legally amounts to sexual assault and battery. Dewey Thacker has been charged with child endangerment, unlawful restraint, complicity to riot (meaning he must have instigated the assault)…

Vinton County Wrestling Team Assault on Student

45-year old Dewey Thacker is facing misdemeanor child endangering charges stemming from an incident on February 5 that was caught on camera at a Vinton County school when he witnessed an assault on a 12-year old boy in a high school wrestling room and did nothing to stop it. It is unclear what Thacker’s position with the school wrestling team is as he is not a board approved assistant coach or volunteer. He has now…

Covington Catholic: “It’s not rape if you enjoy it”

I’m just going to put this right here. The video is the same group of Covington Catholic High School kids. This time showing girls from the girls school, and not one of them said a word about this comment “It’s not rape if you enjoy it”. This is disgusting and these kids are not innocent as their parents’ PR firm is trying to paint them. They showed their true selves when the surrounded and taunted…

Er’body is Getting SUED!

Well…it had to happen. There should be a handbook for privileged shit parenting because the Covington Catholic High School parents just took a page out of it. *le sigh* Rather than owning the behavior of their kids, which was DISRESPECTFUL, the threat of defamation suits are being tossed around as well as “criminal charges” for federal child abuse. WUT? What does that even mean? Instead of using this as a teaching moment about showing respect…
