She Had 7 Children: Three of them are DEAD

Seven years ago I had written about a child murder case in Steubenville, Ohio.  The father of the baby, Fred Roman, bashed his son’s head against a wall because he was crying.  Today, the mother of that child is in jail on a charge of child endangerment, and her son is dead.  COVERED in bruises from head to toe according to Sheriff Fred Abdalla and had burns on his feet. Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla said the child suffered severe injuries including bruises head to toe,  front and back, as well as burns on top of his feet. He said Fleischer walked a mile to the fire department to ask what to do about her dead child rather than ask a neighbor for a phone, which she claims she did not have. Abdalla went on to say the injuries to … Continue reading →

Rest Easy, Leelah Alcorn

THIS breaks my heart. Simply rips it from my chest and causes me to have soul crushing pain for this child.  After years of abuse and rejection from strict Christian parents, Leelah who was a  transgender teen commited suicide by stepping in front of a moving tractor trailer this weekend.  Leelah Alcorn, also known as Joshua Alcorn, was struck and killed by a passing semitrailer on southbound Interstate 71 in Union Township Sunday morning.  A suicide note placed in a queue was  subsequently posted on her Tumblr. It breaks my heart to read someone so young be who is feels as though they have nothing to live for.  It also makes me very angry at those who use religion as an excuse to abuse others or belittle them.    I could go on for days about that, but this post is … Continue reading →

Steubenville, Ohio: Planet Earth’s Epicenter of Rape Culture

Yesterday I wrote about Ma’lik Richmond’s upcoming court hearing to determine whether his Tier II sex offender status would be revised. I also posted screenshots from his Twitter account where he was referring to women as “thots” which is a derogatory term for whore or slut.  Based on his comments, it is my opinion that he has not learned a lesson.  He was at the center of an internationally reported rape case, but rather than keep his derogatory comments about women in private, he posted them publicly.  Did he think that no one would notice or did he even worry that his VICTIM might see his comments about girls? Today Judge Lipps ruled to reduce the classification.  He stated that the goal is “continued rehabilitation”, but has Ma’lik Richmond been rehabilitated?  When Ma’lik returned to the football field this season … Continue reading →

Deborah Still Reaches for the Sky

Since being outed Deborah Still aka Jordan_Renee91 has pulled the “I was h4x0r3d” excuse and continues to dig her hole a little deeper on Twitter.  I am going to update this post and continue to post screenshots of all the Shrew Crew on the forum because it is important for people to realize that the kids behaved badly for a reason…the adults in their lives.  These people are bullies, liars, and victim blamers. She has already alerted her work but she’s “not Deb”.  She has no desire to make anyone jobless, but she and her crew of hateful pals have not only threatened to contact employers, identified employers of those who they disagree with and have tweeted to employers…BUT she is worried about her own conduct at her employer? REALLY?  It sure hasn’t stopped her from Tweeting to my business … Continue reading →

Planned Protests for Steubenville

I wanted to get a post up about any potential protests that might take place at the Steubenville High School football game this coming Friday or after. Tempers are high because Steubenville City Schools and Steubenville High School has allowed Ma’lik Richmond back on the team.  Coach Reno Saccoccia says that he deserves a second chance and the city leaders also seem to be taking this stance.  A petition was created on Change.org by Elizabeth Beier that generated over 60,000 signatures asking the school to rethink their decision and to remove Richmond from the team.  I can tell you now that there is a better chance of Elvis running for president than that.  It’s simply not going to happen.  Steubenville is…well…Steubenville. People want to protest and rightly so.  They SHOULD.  I am encouraging protests.  Marc Randazza and others have pledged … Continue reading →

Bystanders & Blamers

When I first started writing about the Steubenville case, there was one thing that bothered me the absolute most.  It was not that law enforcement did a shoddy job — I never claimed that, and will never make that claim.  I know many of the officers at Steubenville PD and they are very fine and upstanding men.  What bothered me greatly was the number of bystanders (as evidenced by social media) who stood by and did nothing.  The complete and utter lack of empathy of anyone that night bothered me greatly. To be quite clear, RAPE was mentioned on August 11th as it pertains to the events that unfolded that night.  No one but those using social media to discuss what happened that night put those words on their keyboards.  They tweeted about “rape“.    It was they who initially … Continue reading →

Emilliano Terry, Age 3

I find it very disheartening that many missing non-Caucasian children oftentimes never cross our television screens.  Sadly, for a missing child to attract widespread publicity and to improve the odds of the child being found, it is better if the child is white, wealthy, cute and under the age of 12.   In 2005, Scripps Howard News Service did a first of its kind study which found that white children were the subjects of more than two-thirds of the dispatches appearing on the Associated Press’ national wire during a 5-year period and accounted for three-quarters of missing-children coverage on CNN. According to the Scripps Howard study “162 missing-children cases reported by the Associated Press from Jan. 1, 2000, through Dec. 31, 2004. Forty-three CNN reports were also studied. Scripps Howard determined the race of the child in each case by checking … Continue reading →

Hello Cleveland!!

The blog was down for the better part of the day due to some server issues, but hopefully those have been resolved.  Nope, I didn’t shut down.  I’m here for the duration.  I write about a lot of cases, and my focus has always been for the victims.  I don’t always have heartwarming things to say about criminals or others who behave like savages, and I believe that if it looks like a turd, and smells like a turd…chances are it’s a turd.  My language can sometimes be colorful, and I will not apologize for that because that is just who I am.  I have been known to refer to individuals who behave like they are from another planet as booger eaters.  I have a right to an opinion, and I opine that the world is full of some very … Continue reading →
