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…

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…

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…

Teens Savagely Beat Disabled Woman

Three Pennsylvania teens are currently in police custody waiting to be charged as adults for aggravated assault and other related offenses while the other three are supposed to turn themselves in. On Monday or Tuesday night, the six teens viciously attacked and beat a 48-year old mentally disabled woman while one of them used her cell phone to record the assault. They then posted the video on Facebook; obviously more dumb teens believing that it…

We Didn't Know What Rape Was

MARK COLE: Mark Cole II, 17, said the victim was leaving one house and was so intoxicated she could barely walk. “She wasn’t capable of walking on her own and was stumbling as walking,” Cole said. Cole said he shot a video of sexual conduct in his car between Mays and the victim as they were driving to Cole’s house. Cole said he later deleted the video from his phone. He said, at his house,…

Because They Were Bored

I get to write another “your kids suck” article.  Hurray!  On Saturday, North College Hill, Ohio resident Pat Mahaney was walking home Saturday with a six-pack of beer anticipating hanging in front of the television watching sports and relaxing.  That was until something hit him in the back of the head.  “The next thing I knew I woke up on my neighbor’s front step and the life squad was there,” he said. Six boys ages…

Kids in Totes

  Ah, once again I am convinced that individuals should be required to have a license to procreate.  You have to have a license to drive to make sure you aren’t a danger on the road, but yet some of the most maladaptive, socially repugnant people can just have children at will and inflict their special brand of crazy upon them, as is the case with James and Samantha Taylor. Four adults have been charged …

No Criminal Charges for Rotten Apples

This REALLY saddens me.  Local news from Greece, NY is reporting that the four boys will NOT face criminal charges.  WHY NOT?  This was obviously not their first rodeo with bullying ans the bus monitor says that they have harassed her before.  Others from the school have accused the boys of being bullies.  My thoughts are: When is the proper time to say enough is enough and show these children that this behavior simply will not be tolerated?  Should…
