What’s the old joke? Do you know why divorce is so expensive? Because it’s worth it.

Marriage and Divorce

I thought the statistic of children who come from divorced families are more likely to divorce was interesting. I never knew that.

Ohio Breeder headbutts infant son

William Bentley

William Bentley

22-year-old William Bentley of Madison Township, Ohio, has been arrested for allegedly headbutting his 7-week-old infant son, repeatedly. Why? The usual I’m afraid. His son would not stop crying.

Think about that for a moment. Think about that level of violence. His rage was so much over his own son’s crying that he repeatedly slammed his own skull into the face of a helpless infant.

The infant has survived and is expected to recover but does have extensive facial injuries.

Bentley lived in a trailer park. I’ve poked fun at people who live in trailer park’s on this site but it seems that it is unwarranted as his neighbors were not only outraged over what had happened they know better than he did.

“It makes me so mad. I’m shaking. I’m shaking really bad,” Kristen Stevens said. “I don’t know what would bring someone to do that to a small child. If it’s crying, you coddle it. You try and sooth it. You don’t hurt it.”

“That’s what all kids do at that age, you know, they go to the bathroom, they eat, they cry. They want attention,” Raymond Willis said. “Anytime we hear about anything like that happening, especially to a 7-week-old, I mean, that guy should be put in jail for quite a while.”

“If you’re going to have kids, you need to treat them with respect. If you’re going to lie down and have kids, you need to make sure you take care of them,” Nicki Patterson said.

So why didn’t this troglodyte get it and what can we do as a society to see that behavior like this doesn’t continue?

Family member of Breeder charged with murder of daughter has some good advice

Christopher Storbakken

Christopher Storbakken

I was almost going to pass on this story because I can’t stomach a lot of the stories sent to me however in this tragedy comes wisdom.

27-year-old Christopher Storbakken of Indianapolis has been charged with murder in the death of his one-year-old daughter Fowler Harper. Storbakken at first claimed he dropped her while removing her from the crib but the autopsy showed that Fowler died from blunt force trauma and had injuries to her stomach, leg, arm and hand. Police say that Storbakken eventually admitted to striking his daughter because she wouldn’t stop crying. Unfortunately these types of death have become all too familiar to us.

However a family member has some great advice, which may be considered common sense to some but not by all, about what the constant crying may mean…

“I was one of them,” Rehme said. “I had a child that it took months for me to realize she was allergic to dairy, so I had to deal with that. The thing is, take a break; ask for help.”

The crying is not your fault and there is no weakness in asking someone for help.

Erica Parsons’ adoptive parents guilty of fraud

Erica Parsons' missing poster

Erica Parsons’ missing poster

Earlier today Erica Parsons’ adoptive father, Sandy Parsons, was found guilty of fraud for collecting government benefits for Erica long after she had disappeared. Her adoptive mother, Casey Parsons, pleaded guilty to fraud charges earlier this month. They are both scheduled to be sentenced in February. Sandy Parsons is looking at a possible sentence of 20+ years in prison.

I thought the fraud charges would get one of them to crack about the possible whereabouts of Erica but it appears that they are thick as thieves so to speak.

11-year-old runaway was victim of abuse

Bell and Downs

Bell and Downs

An 11-year-old boy recently ran away from his home in Plain Dealing, Louisiana. He was gone for 25 hours before police found him relatively unharmed. I say relatively because the boy was said to have excessive bruising on his body. As it turned out the boy told police that his father and step-mother were physically abusive to him. DCFS further investigated and 43-year-old Ernest W. Bell III and 30-year-old Kristen M. Downs were charged with child abuse. They were also booked on drug and weapons charges as investigators found weed and guns in the home. The pair are said to have admitted smoking weed in front of the victim. They were also allegedly home-schooling the boy even though they did not register with the state.

This makes me wonder what percentage of runaways were victims of child abuse. When I was a teenager I was very tempted to run away. While my dad wasn’t physically abusive to me or my brother he was extremely verbally abusive to us and was physically abusive to my mom. It was very tempting for me to run away. The only thing that stopped was fear. I knew what happened to kids on the street even at that young age. I thought it was better to stay with the devil I know than the devil I don’t. Obviously that danger doesn’t stop a lot of runaways as they may have no other choice. In too many instances it may be a life or death situation.

My point is that the plight of runaway kids is just another byproduct of child abuse. We view child abuse as such an archaic and brutal practice that you think it would be on the decline yet we still can’t escape it.

If you are a runaway in need of help you can call the National Runaway Safeline at 1-800-RUNAWAY (1-800-786-2929) or visit their website.

Banned by Adsense

rsz_google-adsense-banned

Yeah, so BB has been banned by Google Adsense. Well, not so much banned as they told us to change the content on the site as it’s considered either sensitive or a hate site or they would ban us. They wouldn’t get into specifics about what the offending or sensitive content was so I just removed the Adsense ads from the site. Unfortunately that means the main revenue from the site has been lost. Not that it was a living revenue mind you but it’s gone nonetheless.

What this means to you is that you may be seeing more increased ads from another service on the site, especially for mobile users. I try not to use any obtrusive ads like pop ups or crap like that but some of the ads may seem a little ostentatious. Personally I wouldn’t blame you if you used an ad-blocker. Hell, I use one all the time.

However if you’d like to really have an ad free BB please consider becoming a Patron. Even $1 a month goes a long way to help supporting the site.

Florida Breeder blows a .413. Is she the new champion?

dui-test

Police in New Port Richey, Florida, recently arrested 27-year-old Renata Congleton after she allegedly showed up at a middle school trying to pick up a child drunk. Since she’s been charged with child neglect I’m going to assume it was a child in her care. The school claims she showed up obviously inebriated. So instead of releasing the child to her they called the cops instead. So she did what any responsible parent would do. Just kidding, she is said to have fled the scene hitting two cars. When police finally caught up with her at her home they said she had a BAC of .413.

How much does a person have to drink to be more than 5 times over the legal limit? At what time do you start when you’re still that drunk between 2-4pm when most schools let out?

But I know what you’re asking. Surely Trench with this massive amount of alcohol intake she must be the new BB BAC Champion. Well a .413 does blow away the current record of.392 however Ms. Congleton will not be the champion on this day for the fact that her child was not in the car at the time of her alleged drunkenness.

Ok, all kidding aside alcohol abuse is a serious problem. I’ve personally witnessed it lead to child abuse and domestic violence. If you need more information on alcohol abuse please visit the website of National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA)

Thanks to Diana for the tip.

UPDATE: I stand corrected. She does now sit atop the BB BAC Board. The judges have cited precedence as a previous champion also had tried to pick up her kids at school without having them in the car. We need like a trophy or wrestling belt type graphic for this.

We Get Letters: I will report this

hatemail

I’m not even going to preface this one. Oh wait, I guess I just did. Anyway…

Dont write a story if you dont know the facts. This website is based off of what other people say. And you write biased BULLSHIT fucking meedia stories that have the potential to ruin someones life. Fucking cocksuckers. What right do you think you have even having a website like this?? I really do hope you respond to what im saying. I will report this.

*sigh*

Once again, this website gets its information from media reports who usually get their information from the police. It’s not like we’re going door to door in the neighborhood asking about what happened like some group of nattering hens. If charges are dropped or a person is exonerated in any case we will be more than happy to remove the story. Somehow I doubt that has happened in whatever case you’re talking about.

You know what else has the potential to ruin someone’s life? Child abuse.

What right do I have? Last time I checked it was called the First Amendment. There are exceptions to the first amendment but I doubt you’ll find them here. Some people even call this site a responsibility more than a right.

And while I’m consciously trying to cut back on my cursing who the fuck are you going to report us to, the internet police?

“Do it. Kill yourself. I don’t really care.”

colt1911

When I was a teenager I tried to kill myself, twice. I was being bullied at school and my dad was abusing my mom at home. I had no refuge, no escape. I know now that I suffer from depression and I’ve gotten help for it. I would never consider it again. Only because of my brother catching me during both attempts that I’m able to type these words today. I was afraid if I had told my father that I was suicidal that something like the following would happen.

In Osceola County, Florida, a 13-year-old boy is said to have told his father that he was feeling suicidal. Instead of getting his son help 44-year-old Michael Yatsko allegedly gave his son a .45 and urged him to kill himself.

When the teen said he wanted to kill himself, Yatsko allegedly went into the boy’s bedroom, threw the handgun on the bed and told him, “Do it. Kill yourself. I don’t really care.”

Police were initially called to the home on physical abuse allegations. Yatsko also allegedly told police that he did it because his son was ‘acting cowardly’. I would too if I had a violent psychopath for a father. I did , but that’s beside the point.

Luckily the gun was said to have been unloaded.

This is part of what’s wrong in society today. Thoughts of suicide are a mental health issue. Too many troglodytes like this assclown think that it’s a sign of weakness or cowardice. It is none of those things. You didn’t necessarily fail as a parent if one of your children is suicidal but this one obviously did.

If you are a teen or you know a teen who is suicidal there are places you can reach out to help like ReachOut.com or you can call their help line at 1-800-448-3000
