“I have five uncontrollable kids…”

Police: Iowa man locked 5 kids in bedroom all day
UPDATE: Police say Westgate child abuser used secret door

I wasn’t sure I would be able to post another story today. After having posted the one about little Peyton earlier, my eyes are still red from weeping about that poor child. However, I decided that the sheer volume of asininity involved in this situation warranted immediate attention.
Sooooo…..this is a two-fer….kinda. Same people involved, same children, but different charges on different days – but I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me begin at the beginning.


The two outstanding individuals who grace the page just above are crack snacker Joshua Steinbronn, 28, and his main snatch (or is that snack? Oh well, apply the descriptor any way you like), Jonya Smith, 29. It seems that these two stellar parents (and I use that term loosely) thought it would be more fun to have pets than kids, so they decided to keep all five kids locked in a single room for hours (sometimes a full day), with no food, water, or access to a bathroom. Oh, wait, I have to add “allegedly” here. The kids were “allegedly” locked up like animals. According to the children themselves. But who’s keeping score, right?

Let’s back up a little more. This story has me so wound up that I can’t decide which order to share the information. Jonya is the mother of five children between the ages of 3 and 9, whose names are not available – presumably to protect their identities since they are all minors. Let that sink in for a minute. Five children over a seven year period. Not unheard of, but dayum, she was a busy little thing, wasn’t she? Joshua is NOT the babydaddy. For any of them. Neither of the linked articles mention the father(s?) of the children, so I have to wonder if she knows herself. But, that’s just speculation on my part.

Anyway, to get back to the story. On Friday, Sept. 19, 2014, deputies responded to a ‘domestic disturbance’ at a Westgate, Iowa home. The article doesn’t say what kind of home, but I am leaning toward the “mobile” type – you’ll understand why a little further along. Upon arrival, LE noticed ‘several’ children yelling out of a window, and crying. They told officers that they had been locked in the bedroom by their birth organism’s current penis du jour. Ho hum. This one is already sounding familiar, huh? ‘Not-the-daddy’ abusing plaything’s kids. The children went on to describe multiple incidents of confinement, and added that they were given no food, water or access to a bathroom for up to 24 hours. They were given cups to pee in, and sometimes had to use the floor as a toilet. Clothing and baby diapers were also conveniently provided for their waste removal needs. How thoughtful. Or gross, depending on how you want to look at it. One of the children had injured her leg trying to escape at some point. I would also surmise that the children were likely not paragons of hygiene, either – if they were not afforded a toilet or basic food, I sincerely doubt the two adult vermin in the home bothered to let them bathe often. I could be wrong – but I doubt it.

Joshua has been charged with five counts each of false imprisonment and child endangerment, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia (LE found a glass tube and scale that both tested positive for meth). According to the first article, he was released on a $5,000.00 unsecured bond, and ordered to stay away from the children.

Meanwhile, bio-slag was busy telling police that they had the story wrong. Her man would never abuse her children. They were making things up. And blah, blah, blah. Then she said that she and boy-toy locked the kids in their rooms as punishment for disobedience. But never, I swear, NEVER for anywhere near 24 hours. Poor thing! Her horrible kids are lying about her and the BF! What rotten kids! Yeah, right. I’m not buying that load of manure. Sorry, I’m not a farmer, and don’t need the fertilizer right now. Try calling the FFA, wench, THEY might be in need of some BS for their fields. The walking uterus went on to say that Jerk-ua, was not a bad man, and that she had five uncontrollable kids who needed his brand of discipline. Not one, not two, not three, not four….but ALL five of her kids were uncontrollable. Gee, I wonder if that has anything to do with the way they have been raised? Or abused. Take your pick. Perhaps if she had had a parenting class or two, her kids wouldn’t be so ‘uncontrollable’. But I digress. There is much more to this part of the story, but you can read about it tin the first link – I need to move along.

This brings us to the “two” in Two-fer. The scintillating snapshot above depicts two other people who were living in the ‘home’ at the time of the incident. Both of them were also arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia, at the time of Jerk-ua’s arrest. Apparently the mother was spared at that time, AND allowed to retain custody of her children. I can not fathom why. Regardless, within a few days she, too would be behind bars. Why, you ask? Because she is an idiot. Allegedly. One of the idiotic comments she made to authorities when the Jerk was first arrested was that she would continue to discipline her children as she sees fit. Ummm…not so much, I guess. Not if you’re in jail.

It seems that Little Miss Thang, otherwise known as the babymama, aided Jerk-ua in disregarding that protective order mentioned above. Apparently there is a ‘secret door’ under the house that opens into a closet, by which the Jerk has been having conjugal visits with mommy dearest. (This is why I mentioned earlier that I suspected that their home was a ‘mobile’ home. Usually actual houses are not set up such that you can make an entrance to a closet from under the house.) Oops! Somebody reported them, and they are now both residents of the grey bar motel. They have both been arrested – he for violation of a protective order, and she for A&A, child endangerment, and driving on a suspended license. They should also charge her with criminal stupidity and meanness, IMHO. But I don’t think those things are crimes at this point – just character flaws. No word on bonds for either of them, but thankfully, the children have been removed and placed with others. Others who will feed them, and allow them bathroom privileges. Oh, and not lock them up. That’s pretty important, too.

What are diapers for, anyway?

Police: Texas solider beat daughter to death

Fort Bliss Soldier Dartarious Graham Allegedly Uses Belt To Kill 2-Year-Old Daughter

Notorious and Lizardmeth...oops....Dartorious and Elizabeth (honest mistake) - two of the three responsible for Peyton's death.

The two seemingly normal looking people above are Dartarious Graham, 20, and his wife, Elizabeth Graham (no age given), of El Paso Texas. They, along with a cousin of the father, have been arrested and are being held in connection with the death of two-year-old Peyton Graham. Peyton is the biological child of both Dartorious and Elizabeth. Since I don’t think either of these two individuals deserve to be called by name any longer, I will simply refer to them as Notorious and Loose-screw. Yes, I came up with those myself. Not very original, perhaps, but at least they’re accurate.

In the first paragraph, I mentioned that these two are being held in connection with the death of little Peyton. That was not quite accurate. Notorious has been charged with her MURDER, and Loose-screw and Robert Franklin (the cousin) are both being charged with “injury to a child by omission”. Folks, that’s just a fancy term for not doing a blessed thing to save a child who is being killed right in front of your eyes. They stood by and did nothing as Notorious beat little Peyton to death with a belt. Well, to be completely fair, the bio-slag wasn’t actually there at the time of the fatal beating, but according to reports, she had witnessed multiple previous beatings and did nothing to stop them. How can a mother stand by and watch anyone beat her child that way? The cousin actually witnessed the beginning of the final beating, and turned and walked away. My head spins. All three of the pseudo-adults in this debacle are being held at the El Paso County Jail. Notorious has a $250,000.00 bond, but no bond amount was listed for either the sorry slag or the callous cousin.

Why, you may ask, did this precious child deserve such a beating? She didn’t. NO child ever deserves to be treated this way. But Notorious thought she did, and why? Because she “soiled her diaper”. What?!?!?! She was TWO freakin’ years old! What in the blue depths of Hades did he expect? If she was wearing a diaper, that tells me that he KNEW she was not potty-trained, and therefore he knew that she might occasionally have an accident. However, instead of cleaning up his daughter, getting her a clean diaper and taking her to the bathroom to see if she needed to finish up (as any reasonable parent would do), he decided that a beating was in order. People like this make my flesh crawl. I hope he has explosive diarrhea every day for the rest of his life, and his inmates beat him every time he stinks up the cell.

As indicated in my previous remarks, this was not little Peyton’s first beating. Authorities have said that older wounds on the girl’s body were indicative of prior assaults by the sperm-donor. Good Lord. Older wounds? At two years old? When did the abuse start, I wonder? If this case is anything like previous cases, it likely started before she was a year old. Sick arse-tards. You don’t beat a baby, people. Ever. They are fragile, and often don’t realize that they have done anything wrong. Especially when that ‘wrong thing’ is a biological necessity. All people have to use the bathroom, and babies sometimes can’t control their bowels at that age.

Good grief, people, if I had beaten my children like this every time they had an accident while potty training, I wouldn’t have any children left alive! ALL children occasionally have accidents. And some kids have “deliberate accidents” (they are having so much fun playing they don’t want to interrupt playtime to go to the bathroom). One of mine did that one day in the back yard. She had been completely potty trained for several weeks, and came in with saggy pants and an ungodly stench about her. I knew what she had done, but I asked her anyway, and she politely explained to me that she “was having too much fun and didn’t want to come inside.” So I beat her bloody, and threw her on the floor. No, NOT really. What I did was send her to the bathroom with instructions to remove her soiled clothing and get into the bathtub. I told her if she was old enough to know better, and stubborn enough to poop in her pants anyway, she could clean up her own mess. I waited about five minutes and went to see if she was doing as she was told. She had taken off her clothes and dropped them on the floor, and was standing in the bathtub with crap from her waist to her ankles. And in the bottom of the tub. Guess what? I STILL didn’t beat her. I helped her wipe away the major portion of the mess with TP and flushed it. Then I turned on the shower and finished bathing her. Then I made her watch as I rinsed out her panties and shorts in the toilet, telling her next time, I would make her do it. She never did it again. No beating required. Now, this little ‘lesson’ did necessitate a thorough cleaning of the bathtub and bathroom floor afterwards (by me), but hey, what are Scrubbing Bubbles for, anyway? Oh, and I didn’t have a dead kid when I was done ‘teaching’ her, either. Everybody wins!

Why do some parents think that beating a baby with a belt will teach it ANYTHING? The only thing abuse like that teaches children….is fear. The floor is now open for comments…..

Racist bogan takes her kid along for train rant

Woman charged over Bondi train racist rant

School holidays are lots of fun for children. Not so much for parents and grandparents, who rack their brains trying to think of ways to keep the kids entertained. After numerous trips to the museum, craft projects, catching up on the ol’ math and reading skills, you really get stuck for ideas. Perhaps it’s possible to take them to work with you?

Only you don’t have a job. Oh wait, your occupation is being a full-time racist bogan. And today’s the day where there’s a large group of Asian people at which you can’t suppress the urge to scream obscenities.

Professional racist bogan and bad mother Rebecca Blessington

Professional racist bogan and bad mother Rebecca Blessington

That’s precisely what Rebecca Blessington (28) of Marylands West did. The sight of a large group of Asian people aboard the train from Bondi to Town Hall angried up her bogan blood (along with some bourbon-and-cokes and a pack of Winnie Reds) and she let fly with some, ahem, colourful bogan dialect:

Youse aren’t citizens. You come in here and take our country ya cunts. You know it too. And guess what mate — there’s a war comin’. A war between us and youse.

Now, why is this on Bad Breeders you ask? Because while this raging cunt was screaming unintelligible hate, she was cradling her young child. At one stage, she stands over a frightened commuter, while holding her child, and spews foul hate into her face. All of this was in full view of her child, whose mind had not formed the prejudices of her ignorant and terminally stupid waste of a “mother”.

Funnily enough, she claims to be Aboriginal – another minority group in Australia who have been subjected to racial abuse in the past.

You know the ones that were here first? The black fellas, the Kooris, which I am. This is our country mate.

Uh yeah, she’s about as Aboriginal as I am. And I’m a fucking snowflake.

The white-trash tirade occurred at 8.30 am – peak time for Sydney transport. Most of the witnesses and the victims were on their way to work – something that this brain-dead cunt has no idea about. Popping out children and collecting Centrelink is not a “job”. Screaming abuse at others out of sheer jealousy and stupidity is not a “job”. Time to get up off your arse, throw on something other than trackpants and hoodies and get in there and earn some money.

Video of Rebecca’s opinion sharing got out, and police have tracked her down and paid her a little visit. She has only been charged with using offensive language, but I’m sure if she’s willing to behave like that in public, there must be more going on behind closed doors. Raising a child with a loudmouth breeder like Rebecca is not healthy. The kid needs to get away from her ASAP before she starts thinking like her birth vessel, which would not be her fault at all, but the fault of the trash that her breeder spews.

 

Ryan Warner: Another Baby Beating Crack Snack

Napa couple charged with murder in death of Kayleigh Slusher

1743464_10203189075746402_1466064105_n

In my mind there is no justifiable circumstance for beating a 3-year-old to death. Kayleigh Slusher was beaten to death by her mother (Sara Krueger – 23) and the useless flesh she used to entertain her vagina (Ryan Scott Warner – 26).  After being beaten to death, she was stuffed in a suitcase and placed in a freezer for 3 days.  I mean, Gawd forbid a little legal SNAFU causes a hiccup in this piece of shit mother’s sexual relationship.  Kayleigh was found in the apartment during a welfare check.  Looks like CPS was a little late on checking her welfare, ay? Anyone who knows me, knows I remember the faces of all the children who are murdered – I want everyone who sees this to remember her face too.  Angels are always beautiful…. some more than others.

Kayleigh’s bio-dad is in prison for reckless driving and evading police.  She may have been better off being in his custody.  Or the custody of a rabid wart hog.

Both cock stains have been charged with murder and felony assault.  COME ON DEATH PENALTY!!  Sadly, I live in CA – The bleeding hearts here will probably not allow these two to be put down like the dogs they are.  They are scheduled in court on February 25th.   I will try too keep y’all updated.

Baby bashed up in Queensland

Mum accused of punching baby in face

Mum charged with bashing her baby

Police examine the scene of the bashing

Police examine the scene of the bashing

There are many ways of dealing with a crying baby. There are also ways of dealing with stress and anger. None of the methods involve punching a living thing.

A Queensland bitch has been charged with assault occasioning bodily harm after she allegedly punched her 5 month old baby girl in the face multiple times. The reason for the cowardly punch? The baby wouldn’t stop crying. Witnesses in Eyre Street, North Ward saw the bitch attacking her baby at around 1pm and called the police. Bitch remains in police custody.

The baby is in hospital recovering from bruising and facial injuries for the time being. It’s not known whether the baby incurred any brain damage or other internal injuries from the bashing.

Not surprisingly, it was found that the bitch had been drinking and was intoxicated. At 1pm in the afternoon. While caring for her baby.

QLD Police say there are no laws specific to the assault of a baby and that the punishment is not generally greater just because the victim is a baby or a child. They further explained that if the punishment is increased due to the age of the victim, it’s generally up to the courts to determine whether that would be the case. Another spokesperson has come forward to say that assaults on children in Townsville were becoming a daily occurrence, especially because of the school holidays and the associated stress.

Why do Queenslanders put four exes on beer cans?

Because they can’t spell “beer”.

Bad Parent Sighting: “Not my responsibility, mate”

8 YEAR OLD BOYS CAUGHT ATTEMPTING TO START FIRE IN EAST MAITLAND

Two child firebugs, both eight, caught in Newcastle

Eight-year-old boys caught trying to light a bushfire

We haven’t had a Bad Parent Sighting for a while. I also like to call them the alliterative term “Piss Poor Parenting”. This one was seen in the newspaper and on the news, making excuses to try to absolve himself of parental duty.

For the last couple of weeks, New South Wales has been burning. We have had severe bushfires, brought on by hot, windy and dry conditions. Some of these fires were started by natural causes such as dry lightning. Others by accident, such as hot exhaust pipes on dry grass or electricity wires arcing in strong winds. However, a few of these fires were deliberately lit.

The case I want to bring to your attention happened recently. Two 8 year old boys were caught near East Maitland in the Hunter Valley, trying to light a fire around 7.30pm. They had piled up dry grass and dead leaves and were trying to light the heap with a cigarette lighter. It was only by sheer luck that the lighter didn’t work.

Police could not press charges due to the boys’ age (age of criminal responsibility in Australia is 10 years) and released them into the care of their parents (who were obviously not caring for them as they were wandering the bush at 7.30pm at night). When interviewed by news sources, the father of one of the boys had the hide to say this:

“I have 6 kids, I can’t be following all of them around the streets all the time. It’s not my responsibility, mate.”

What the fuck. They’re YOUR children! You chose to not wear a condom or get a vasectomy and beget 6 children. You have to live with that choice. What your child did was almost attempted murder. You should be begging for forgiveness and disciplining your child.

6 kids and unwilling to care for them. Old Mate needs to stand up once in a while. Same with his missus. Get a new hobby. And no, getting drunk down at your local pub while your unsupervised litter run rampant doesn’t count as a constructive way to pass one’s time. Some suggested hobbies would be getting a job in a nuclear reactor, keeping your phone in your underwear, getting kicked in the balls, wearing tight underwear, getting cardiovascular disease or diabetes etc. See where I’m going with this?

Mother dearest of the other boy involved said that her boy will be “grounded for a week”. Yeah, that’ll show him! NOT! “Grounded” = more likely playing Xbox while Mother also goes down to the pub and drinks away her welfare check. At least she took some responsibility for him unlike the aforementioned useless Old Mate. But this lack of proper discipline and consequences is probably what led to this kid thinking he could do whatever he liked, with no consequences to his actions whatsoever.

The police involved with the case, being mandated reporters, have reported both kids to be “at risk” to DoCS (Social Services). They were unsupervised and getting into a potentially very dangerous situation because their parents couldn’t be bothered to keep an eye on them. This is a small victory for the people of Maitland, who could have lost everything because of two very silly little boys and their inept breeders. Once you get the attention of DoCS (whether you really are abusing your kids or not), it’s very hard to get them out of your life. Social services will be investigating these useless people very thoroughly.

Sorry for the long ramble, but we have had fires close to us and it was very scary. To think that people could have lost their homes and livelihoods because of poor breeding just makes my blood boil.

 

Discussion point: Should parents be held responsible for their children’s criminal actions, if the child is under the age of criminal responsibility? Perhaps some fines to diminish the breeders’ pub money might straighten them out.

Let’s go over this again: Grand Theft Auto is NOT for kids

gtav

I Sold Too Many Copies of GTA V To Parents Who Didn’t Give a Damn:

The article I linked to was written by a video game store employee and how he sold too many copies of Grand Theft Auto V to a bunch of clueless parents whose kids are too young for the game. If you’re unfamiliar with the GTA series in each incarnation of the game you play a criminal and you are required to do some pretty violent things in order for the game to progress. Here’s the thing, despite what some critics may try to tell you the GTA series was never intended for children.

This is a pet peeve of mine because I’ve been a gamer since the introduction of the Atari 2600. I had the first generation Sears model. So I’ve been gaming longer than some of these ‘parents’ have been alive. I know that all video games that are released to the public today, and for a decade and a half now, all have ratings on them just like movies.

ESRB(1)

All of the Grand Theft Auto games are rated M for mature. That means that the game is not recommended for anyone under 17. While I don’t believe that video games cause violence per se if a kid was exposed to this game at too young an age it could have detrimental psychological effects on the child. For example there was this kid I knew growing up who got into his dad’s porn stash. Back in those days it was Playboy and Penthouse magazines, tame by today’s standards. However young children believe just about everything they see or hear. This kid ended up believing all the things he saw and read in these magazines as real, especially the ‘Dear Penthouse’ sections. When we were in middle school he told me how disappointed he was when we were selling magazines for school that we weren’t invited into this one house that had several attractive young women in it.

My point is that if a too young child is exposed to this game they may end up thinking that the ultraviolence in a GTA is not only acceptable but encouraged in society and by the time he grows out of it, it may be too late.

Nipple biting nanna, welfare bludging daughter – winners all around!

Mother ‘bit her 16-year-old daughter’s nipple during vicious and bloody domestic fight’

Joy(less) Young - those eyes are seriously creepy looking.

Joy(less) Young – those eyes are seriously creepy looking.

This story was posted by Benighted on our Open Thread a while ago. It’s too freaking funny to not be posted.

Joy Young (38), who appears to be the opposite of her namesake, was arrested and charged with child abuse after it was alleged that she bit her 16 year old daughter’s nipple during a fight.

According to police, Joy (who was not a Joy to be around) was arguing with her daughter Diamond LaCrystal Simmons about a social security check at their Vero Beach home in Flori-DUH. You see, 16 year old Diamond LaCrystal is the proud mother of a 2 month old bouncing baby boy. Shine bright like a Diamond indeed…So anyway, an argument broke out because Diamond was trying to apply for Social Security money so that she could spend it on herself instead of her baby. That shit didn’t fly with Joy, because Diamond would always go out and leave the baby with her. A tussle broke out and nipples got bitten.

A bit nipple bleeds a lot, and police were greeted with a scene reminiscent of the scene from The Shining where the blood rushes out of the lift. The officer noted that Diamond had a massive bloodstain on her shirt and scratches on her face. Joy emerged from the fracas without any injury.

Joy must have some super sharp teeth to get through a tshirt and a bra in order to bite Diamond on the nipple. I’m not sure how the mechanics of that would work, to be honest.

As you can see, this story was too funny to not publish. A ridiculous name, strange method of abuse, welfare fraud and all round trashiness. Thanks go to Benighted for this gem.

Bad dads and dicks behind the wheel

Drunk driver ‘remorseful’ over girlfriend’s death

A bad boyfriend was driving drunk and stoned when he crashed and killed his girlfriend. The girlfriend’s 7 month old baby, who was in the back seat, survived the crash but now doesn’t have a mummy :'(.

Allan Lisle Trezise (31) pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving, after he caused the collision in Loxton, SA, in August last year. It was alleged that he took over driving after his girlfriend Sophie Anne Rathmell (29) became “too tired” to drive and let her drugged dick take over. Well, we all know what happens when you drink and drive, right? Yes, the drugged dick lost control of the car, over-corrected on a bend and crashed into a tree, killing Sophie and leaving a little baby without his mum. Speed was not a factor in the crash, but the drugged dick blew a reading of over 0.08%. He also tested positive for marijuana. He was also charged with driving while disqualified, and breaching bail conditions by being intoxicated. Oh, nice. This dropkick wasn’t even supposed to be driving anyway, and was out on parole for something or rather. Yet he still makes a good sexual partner and role model for a young baby?

I would be angry at Sophie too, for picking an alcoholic pothead for a bedmate and putting her baby at risk by allowing a disqualified, drunken dropkick drive a vehicle that, in the wrong hands, can be used as a deadly weapon. But Sophie has paid for her bad decisions with her life. She’s square with the house.

Hopefully the baby can be cared for by his dad (who is not the drunkard) or by Sophie’s parents.

Melbourne road rage caught on camera

A raging road user has been caught on camera slapping a side mirror and yelling and screaming at another motorist – all while his family was in the car.

Camera footage taken from a dashboard camera shows the incident which occurred in Deer Park, on the outskirts of Melbourne. The driver of a red Ford Territory is seen shouting out the window and swerving at a silver Toyota. The lunatic is then shown cutting in front of the Toyota, forcing it to slow down to avoid a collision. At one point in the footage, the Ford swerves to within an arm’s length of the Toyota and the driver slaps the side mirror.

All of this occurred with the Ford driver’s wife and kids were in the car.

What a great example to set for your kids. And what would have happened if the Ford driver had lost control of his car and crashed?

Shameful.

Cheryl Darlene Dudley

AdminRaptor: Welcome to the Bad Breeders Internet Game Show (otherwise known as BBIGS)!

Jimmy: The game no one wants to play because contestants generally lose!

Adminraptor: I’m AdminRaptor,and tonight, along with co-host Jimmy, who is actually just a sarcastic fictional extension of myself, we have a new contestant! This is Cheryl Darlene Dudley of St. Peters, Missouri. She is 37 years old and a “mother” of two children. One child is one year old (22 months, almost 2) and the other child is seven years old. She doesn’t look too happy. Why isn’t she happy?

Jimmy: She’s sitting in jail right now on a $30,000 bond!

AdminRaptor: Indeed she is! Although that sounds a little low, doesn’t it Jimmy?
Jimmy: Very low.
AdminRaptor: Ridiculously low
Jimmy: Insanely low.
AdminRaptor: Indescribably low.
Jimmy: Lower than what I predict this woman’s IQ is.
AdminRaptor: I stand corrected.

Anyway, you’ll understand the “low” comments when I tel you what she’s n jail for. Well, it’s simple really… She tied her 22-month old (one year, almost two) child to her garage, outside, so that the child wouldn’t run out into the street.

Jimmy: I think the real reason is so the child wouldn’t run away in general from their lunatic mother.

AdminRaptor: More than likely. Police came to her house when a neighbor/witness called them reporting that a child was tied to the garage. When they got there, the child was no longer tied to the garage…But of course, Cheryl forgot rule #2 of dealing with the police during an investigation.

Jimmy: What’s rule #2?
AdminRaptor: Rule #2 is “Shut the fuck up.”
Jimmy: …What’s rule #1?
AdminRaptor: Rule #1 is “Don’t break the fucking law.”
Jimmy: Ah, good rules to abide by.

AdminRaptor: Indeed they are. But Cheryl broke rule #2 and didn’t shut the fuck up. Instead, she did admit to tying her child to the garage so that she wouldn’t run away. Then, when police searched the house, they found a loaded rifle in the one-year-old’s crib.And how did Cheryl explain that? Oh,  she heard a noise out back and grabbed her gun, set it down in the crib, and forgot that it was there.

Jimmy: Hey, that’s a legitimate excuse! I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve walked by my child’s crib and thought “Hey, that there bed would make a mighty fine gun cabinet!
AdminRaptor: Not funny.
Jimmy: Okay, how about this one: Maybe this is just some liberal conspiracy cover-up and the gun really belonged to the one-year-old and the police were just trying to deprive her of her Second Amendment rights?
AdminRaptor: What the fuck.
Jimmy: ‘MURIKA. THEY’RE TAKIN’ OUR FREEDOMS!
AdminRaptor: Rule #2 applies to this situation too, Jimmy.
Jimmy: Shutting the fuck up, now.
AdminRaptor: Good. Thank you.
Jimmy: Maybe that’ll be the headline for this case on Fox News…
AdminRaptor: JIMMY!
Jimmy: Bazinga!

AdminRaptor: Anyway, as the police continued to search. They found pills in the bedroom that was shared by the 7-year-old child, within reach of said child. Cheryl said she didn’t know what the pills were–just that they helped her sleep and she had trouble sleeping. There were also 5 dogs in the house that were removed from the home along with the children after this search. Dog feces were scattered about the house, and the basement had a number of used diapers on the floor, and things near the water heater that presented a fire hazard. There was also spoiled food in the kitchen/refrigerator, and brown smears of unknown origin in the refrigerator as well. `

Jimmy: Ew. Just. Ew.

AdminRaptor: And she is sitting in jail with a $30,000 bond with 7–SEVEN–counts of endangering the welfare of a child and 1 count of child abuse. So now you understand why Jimmy and I feel that this is a ridiculously low amount for bond. Oh, and there was physical abuse as well. Not only were flea bites and scratches found on the toddler, and bruises on her that Cheryl admitted to causing. The bathroom also looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in months as well. Oh, and the back door was always open because the glass of the door was broken. The full details can be read on the probable cause papers in the sources.

And unfortunately, I can’t think of the best way to end this blog post except to say that I hope that she is held responsible for her actions and that the children (and the dogs too) find a good home with loving families that will love and care for them like they deserve.

Jimmy: Too serious, bro.

AdminRaptor: Rule #2, Jimmy.
