“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.

Apparently, killing five children is not enough to warrant the title of “Monster”

Lawyer: Accused child killer being “portrayed like a monster”
Father who ‘killed his five children then bleached their bodies to hide stench

Murdering Monster

Timothy Ray Jones Jr., 32, of South Carolina, is being wrongfully portrayed as a ‘monster’ in the press, according to his attorney. According to this same attorney, all he really needs is a mental health evaluation. Pardon me while I puke.

This waste of oxygen killed his five children. The names and ages of these precious angels are: Merah, 8; Elias, 7; Nahtahn, 6; Gabriel, 2, and Elaine Marie, 1. While the article is unspecific about the exact cause of death, it did report that the children were killed “by violent means”. Then, as if that wasn’t bad enough, this worthless individual drove around with the dead bodies of his children, wrapped in trash bags, for several days. Through several states. And then dumped their tiny bodies on a rural hilltop in Alabama. It was reported that, at one point, Jones stopped at a donut shop for a coffee and six donuts. Did he think buying them donuts would bring the kids back to life? Sorry, monster daddy, it doesn’t work that way.

This monster killed his children, and he is upset that he is being portrayed as a monster in the press? Really? That came as a shock to him? How in the Sam Hades did he think he would be portrayed after killing five innocent children? As a saint? As a good father? How about as a murderous bastard? Does that sound better than ‘monster’?

The hired liar, oops, I meant to say his attorney, has said that he has been treated for mental health problems in the past, which tells me that they are likely planning an insanity defense. This man is not insane – he is vindictive. Plain mean. The article also mentions that he was upset because his wife slept with a neighbor. If I were the betting sort, I’d wager a significant amount on the likelihood that this depraved individual killed the kids to get back at Mommy. While I’m not condoning her actions, why did this worthless POS think that the children should pay for their mother’s infidelities? Perhaps the mother was beginning to recognize the ‘crazy’ signs, and wanted to be with a SANE individual for a change.

Think that’s bad? Wait! There’s more! This outstanding specimen of virility has a criminal record dating back to 2001 – when he was 19 years old. He was arrested for cocaine possession, auto theft, burglary and passing forged checks. What a catch, ladies! Isn’t this the kind of guy you want to father your children? Yeah, me neither. But apparently he found a woman who was willing to overlook his youthful indiscretions and give him a chance. Five chances. All of whom he later killed.

When Jones was apprehended, he was driving his SUV that, according to the arresting officer, smelled of death. The SUV contained blood, childrens’ clothes, maggots and BLEACH, with which he was apparently attempting to mask the odors of decomposition. Too bad he didn’t drink some of the bleach instead. The officers said he was also “high as a kite” on Spice, a synthetic form of marijuana.

Jones’ father, Timothy Jones, Sr., gave a statement to the press in which he referred to his son as a “very loving father, brother and son.” I don’t know about the ‘brother and son’ part, but I call BS on the ‘loving father’ description. Sorry, Sr., a loving father does not murder his children. Pick a different descriptor for your monster….ummmm…son, please.

In addition to the father’s statements, a couple of neighbors were also interviewed by the press. The Hyders, who lived next door when Jones and his wife were still married, indicated that they thought Jones was strange. His children were often dirty and disheveled, and in later months, very rarely seen outside at all. Apparently Jones had also been vaguely threatening on several occasions, and had once threatened to kill a dog owned by the Hyders. Mrs. Hyder said Jones was “a nut”. No! Ya think?

The mother of the children is said to be distraught over the deaths of her children, and rightfully so. I think she should be given a blowtorch, a claw hammer, and a taser – and fifteen minutes alone with Timothy in a police interrogation room. Oh, and full immunity for anything that happens during that fifteen minute span. We might not have to take this case to court after all.

What kind of sick do you have to be to think that killing your children is a solution to ANYTHING?!? I sincerely hope this guy gets the DP, and that it is mishandled like a couple of other recent cases, so that he suffers during his execution. I hope he suffers horribly.

He is currently awaiting transport to SC from Mississippi, where he will be formally charged. He is also on suicide watch. Great! Can I watch? Oh, wait, I was thinking of something else. If I were his guard, I would hand him a straight razor to shave with, and extra sheets to cover up with at night. Already torn into strips, to make the creation of a noose even easier for him. Plus an instruction sheet, outlining fifty ways to kill yourself in a jail cell. But that’s just me. I try to be helpful that way.
Merah, Elias, Nahtahn, Gabriel and Elaine. Precious babies, may you all sing and dance with the angels.

PS – Jerk-off Jones’ attorney has also said that Jones is ‘scared’ and wants someone to ‘guide him through the process.’ He should have considered how frightened his kids likely were as he was killing them. I bet they were freakin’ terrified. He doesn’t deserve to have someone to “guide him”, IMHO. Unless it’s to the electric chair – in that case, I volunteer to be his guide. Shoot, I’ll even flip the switch. No charge. And I’ll pay for the after-party as well.

Lazy Slob Kicks Out A Kid- Keeps The Roaches

(Special thanks to Catalina for the post)

Mother arrested after 5 children are found living in feces-ridden, bug-infested home in Florida:

Yolander Lasane, zero fucks given

Yolander Lasane, zero fucks given

Yolander Lasane (45) of Orlando, Florida, gives zero fucks about anything but herself. It seems that as long as she has a working air conditioner and television in her bedroom, all is right in her world. She won’t even let a little animal feces and cockroaches come between her and feeling cool while watching her stories. I’m in the mind frame of live and let live…except when letting live involves neglecting 5 children.

The house of crap was discovered by police after they were called to check on Lasane’s 17 year-old. A Department of Children and Family worker was concerned about the teenager, who hadn’t been seen at home for weeks. When they entered the home, investigators found 5 kids, aged between 5 and 17, living in disgusting, deplorable conditions.

Luckily, the 17 year-old was found, and said the queen of filth and laziness had thrown her out, so she had been staying with a friend. However, the state in which the home was found is enough to make me gag and send shivers up my spine, because I’m a neat freak and entomophobic (not a fan of creepy crawlies).

According to the article (which, by the way, includes several photos of the cesspool), police found the usual decor adorning these shit shacks- dog feces and urine soaked mattresses where the children slept, rotten food, a broken toilet, and an insane amount of clutter. I bet that place smelled heavenly, especially in the middle of Florida’s hot summers.

Furthermore, the kids looked as if though they hadn’t bathed in a really long time, and no oral hygiene meant they suffered from rotten teeth.

The part that really got my tear ducts active was reading that one of the children begged police to be given to a new family. Damn it. That’s desperation right there.

And what was Lasane’s excuse for refusing to do her basic job as a mother and human being? The nasty slob said her excessive weight caused her to lose mobility and be bed bound. Those kids were left to their own devices, and neighbors said they often saw them wandering the streets, looking for jobs for money. Good grief, that’s not even close to being a normal childhood.

Lasane is being charged on five counts of child neglect causing great bodily harm. Oh, and the good-for-nothing loafer walked out to the patrol car for her arrest. It’s a modern-day miracle!

Meanwhile, the children are staying with relatives, while the state is looking to find them permanent homes. I hope with all my heart that those kids finally get to feel loved and cared for.

Thanks to Sherri for the tip.

“The Hills Have Eyes” – Australian style

The Australian families that hold dark secrets of incest and abuse

The case of incest and depravity which came to rest in the hills of a quiet country town

And we’re back to the cricket. Real life has been calling and in between work and study, there just hasn’t been the time for the writing. This story is about a month or so old and has been featured on The Dreamin’ Demon, but because it happened in Australia, I’m going to cover it here.

A massive inbred family had been discovered in a hidden valley, southwest of Sydney. Four generations of brothers and sisters, fathers and daughters, and uncles and nieces had been mating with each other, producing all in all 40 adults and children. Among the children was a five year old girl whose parents were the only ones who weren’t brother and sister. The discovery of the inbreds has been described as one of the worst cases of incest to have ever been made public.

Police discovered the clan, who go by the name of Colt, after reports were made about dirty children living in the hills. They were often seen with the clanswomen at the shops and did not seem to attend any sort of school. When the cops managed to track down where the children and women were coming from, they discovered a squalid settlement made up of rotting caravans and filthy sheds. Inside, the stoves and cooking appliances were caked in dirt and filth, rotting vegetables lay in a broken fridge. Exposed wiring and a chainsaw were accessible to the children. There was no sewerage connection, electricity or running water. Oh, and a kangaroo was sleeping on one of kids’ beds.

One of the sheds where the clan lived

One of the sheds where the clan lived

The Colt clan were made up of Betty (46), Martha (33), and Rhonda (47). Betty slept with her brother Charlie and two of her daughters. Genetic tests showed that Betty’s children and grandchildren were born from related parents. The family has been traced back to a set of great grandparents who were brother and sister, and the family has self-perpetuated from there.

The  younger children were affected as follows:

Betty’s children: Bobby (15) couldn’t walk properly, had skin issues and needed dental work. His speech was unintelligible and he wet the bed constantly. Learning was at kindergarten level; Billy (14) underweight, stunted growth, hearing and sight problems, unintelligible speech, learning difficulties and unable to read or count; Kimberley (14) and her daughter Raylene were underweight and didn’t know how to wash or brush their teeth; Brian (12) had no concept of hygiene and extensive dental problems. Betty’s older daughter Tammy (27) had three children, one of which had died of genetic deformities associated with inbreeding. Her children had been fathered by her brother Derek (25). All in all, Betty had 13 children, some fathered by her brother and some fathered by her own father Tim.

Martha’s children: Albert (15) and Jed (14) both had issues with speech, hygiene and dental problems; Ruth (7) was neglected and malnourished and she didn’t know what toilet paper was or how to use it (cue itchy feeling). Her sister Nadia (9) told of sexual involvement with her brothers (no doubt encouraged by the inbred breeders). The brothers had tied Nadia and their 13 year old niece-cousin to a tree naked. Martha’s children may have also been fathered by Tim.

12 children were removed from the compound. The youngest, who was only aged 5 years, was the only child to not have related parents. Perhaps it was Uncle ‘Roo that was her father? Or a hapless backpacker who inadvertently wandered into the campsite? The other 11 children had their inbreeding confirmed by geneticists who took mouth swabs from all of the people living at the camp.

Despite their horrible start to life, the children are now doing well in foster care. Some have been placed in treatment programs for the sexualised behaviour that their aunty-mums and daddy-uncles encouraged. All have made progress with schooling and hygiene. The aunty-mums have taken varying degrees of responsibility for the incest and sexual abuse of the children. Except for Betty, who for some reason still has supervised contact with her children-siblings. She denies any wrongdoing and her lawyer has disputed the court’s findings with the genetic testing.

So much WTF. I told Trench it’d be a good one.

Starvation and filth in Adelaide

Officials describe neglect case as one of the worst

Parents accused of starving child appear in court

Couple charged over failing to feed son

Thanks go to KH for the tip on this one, and to Trench for passing it on to me. I have been a bit busy with starting my Master’s degree, so this makes a suitable change of pace.

A couple from Adelaide, South Australia (23 and 27) have been charged with child neglect after their 4 year old son was found to be weighing only 8kg (17.6 pounds). The house was also a complete mess, with piles of used nappies and rubbish everywhere. The stench of the house could be smelled from the street, according to authorities. When the boy arrived at the local hospital, his condition was so bad that some of the medical staff who were treating him, required counselling.

Gross, nasty filth

Gross, nasty filth

Last year in March, Families SA were alerted by the family’s neighbours to concerns about the kiddo’s welfare. However when officials spotted the boy, they saw that he was fine. And then, because an NGO was involved with the family, Families SA saw no need to continue investigating the family, according to news sources. This case has prompted an internal investigation by Families SA into how it handled the case. A Child Safety expert has blamed a lack of communication leaving children vulnerable.

The breeders have been to court, where they were charged with criminal neglect and failing to provide food. The male (27) also had a charge of aggravated assault tacked on. They have been remanded in custody.

The young kiddo is now in the care of Families SA.

Photos of Quinten and Cameron, and the foul living conditions that they were subjected to

Justice for Quinten Facebook page

Obituary for Quinten

I happened upon this story, as I tend to do when I trawl the ‘net for other things. I shared a link with Trench, who then offered me a CNN news link. Unfortunately, this seems to be the only “legit” news link I have come across, which is very sad. We have had to rely on all the sites that Quinten’s sister have published on to get more information. There are photos of the living conditions that the boys were forced to endure, plus photos of Quinten and his brother Cameron.

This story is about a sister, Valerie Wood-Harber, who was brave enough to blow the whistle on the poor living conditions to which her bio breeder Michael Wood had subjected her younger brothers Cameron and Quinten. She alleges that all the housework and care of Quinten was foisted upon young Cameron. You see, Quinten has a ring chromosome disorder which caused him to be unable to care for himself, use the toilet, feed himself, walk or talk. Instead of Mr. Wood caring for his son like he should have done, it is alleged that he just gave up and allowed Quinten to become gravely ill without seeking medical help for him. It is on a grubby, pee stained couch that Quinten died at the age of 15 years, holding the hand of his best friend and brother Cameron.

When Cameron told Valerie of the poor living conditions, as well as physical and emotional abuse that their own father was subjecting them to, she made a difficult yet sensible decision – she called Child Welfare Services and sang like a canary. They promised her that they would do a home study and that everything would be okay. Three weeks passed, and nothing was done. Valerie tried her damnedest to clean the trailer up and buy food for the boys. It was all in vain. The trailer would be exactly the same way when she returned the next time. The fridge would be empty again. Cameron told her that if it weren’t for her buying groceries, they would probably starve.

Valerie had taken the boys in after a mere three days of discovering that they existed, when their father took off to work overseas. She looked after them for 4 years, right up until Quinten started having issues with living with a “stranger” and Cameron needing his dad. Valerie did not have the time nor the resources to get the boys the help they needed, so with a heavy heart, she sent them back to their dad. She couldn’t have known that this decision would have cost Quinten his life. She had begged her father to let her take the boys until he got back on his feet, but he allegedly threatened her with never seeing the boys again if she implied that he was anything less than a good father to them. He would also have her charged with kidnapping, and because she lived in the next state, it would have been a felony.

Michael Wood is currently free from prosecution, as there had been NO investigation made by social services. Quinten’s death was officially caused by pneumonia, which the coroner blamed on his ring chromosome condition. Quinten was scrawny and malnourished, but again that was blamed on his condition.

Valerie is working around the clock to see her father brought to justice and to see Oklahoma Social Services investigated for their role in Quinten’s death.

I took offence to the poor reporting skills of the journo who wrote the CNN article. It barely touched on the accusations of child abuse made by Valerie and basically made it out to be a sob story. However, it does provide more opportunities to feel contempt for Michael Wood. According to the article, Wood claimed that Quentin suffered from recurrent ear infections which antibiotics could not clear. Valerie states that Quentin never became sick when in her care. He also claimed that he went to DHS for help with Quentin (um, your daughter offered to take the boys and you nearly bit her head off with threats of kidnapping charges). DHS declined to comment on whether there was any record of Wood visiting DHS. He even went as far as to blame his imaginary friend God for Quinten’s death. No sir. You kept them in a hovel, you didn’t buy any food and you rejected your daughter’s pleas to take better care of the boys. This is squarely on you.

It is so sad that there wasn’t much more on news sites and that I had to rely on unofficial new sights. Valerie is trying hard to get her brother’s story told, and I hope by putting it on BB, that it will help.

RIP Quinten Douglas Wood.

 

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.

Rhyming rednecks accused of selling their daughters for porn

Ronnie and Connie McCall accused of selling daughters into child porn ring

US parents allegedly sold daughters for porn

Ronnie and Connie McCall. What are the odds of a couple having rhyming names?

Ronnie and Connie McCall.

When I hear of couples with rhyming names, I can’t help but laugh. What are the odds of having rhyming names? At least it’s a bright spot in this otherwise awful tale. That and the ubiquitous mocking of the suspects’ mugshots. Man, that is a hard 40. Miss Connie needs to lay off the Jack Daniels.

Ronnie Lee (61) and Connie Sue (40) stand accused of selling their three daughters (12, 15, and 17) to a child pornography ring. The girls allege that they were forced to commit sexual acts against their will – with the full knowledge and permission of their parents.

The alleged actions of Ronnie and Connie came to attention after authorities investigated the couple for child neglect. One of the girls had lice in her hair and on her body, flea bites, ring worm and rotten teeth. A fourth daughter (5) who had not been sold to child pornographers (possibly because she wasn’t old enough to bleed) was also found to have rotten teeth. An officer from Johnson County said that her teeth were black and were riddled with cavities. The young girl was also in a lot of pain.

When the older children were investigated about the extent of their breeders’ neglect, that’s when they told authorities about the child porn ring and the permitted sexual abuse and rape. They also said that their breeders regularly abused bath salts. Oh, so that explains the melty faces and squinty eyes in the mugshots! A lesson right there, folks. If you don’t want to lose your youthful looks, don’t smoke bath salts. I prefer to put them in my bath, personally.

Not surprisingly, it was also found that the trailer in which the family dwelt was absolutely filthy and deplorable. I guess a busy schedule of smoking bath salts and pimping out your underage children doesn’t allow much time for trivial things like cleaning your house or visiting the dentist.

Ronnie allegedly took the girls over to South Carolina for a “business trip”.  The “john” involved who was accused of raping the girls has committed suicide, according to local papers.

Ronnie had the gall to plead not guilty to enabling the sexual abuse of his daughters, while Connie is due to appear in court on Wednesday. How the fuck can that seedy old bastard plead “not guilty”? After all he put his daughters through? The old fuck will cark it soon enough.

The girls are now under the care of child services and authorities are hoping for them to be adopted out together.

I can see why these two didn’t try to sell porn featuring themselves. They’d never make a single buck. Is there even a market for porn featuring a melty-faced hag and a squinty-eyed old fuck? Who knows.

Second Life players didn’t give their child a Second Chance

Second Life obsessed parents starve two-year-old child

Couple ‘living in fantasy world’ accused of starving girl

Parents ‘were so immersed in fantasy video game world where their avatars married and had jobs they let real-life daughter, 2, nearly starve to death’

Mark Knapp and Elizabeth Pester

This is the second story I’ve heard of parents neglecting their children in favour of Second Life. I saw a feature on Dr. Phil (back in my HSC days) on this game, with a 13 year old girl addicted to it. To me, it looks sort of like The Sims, only a bit more sophisticated. I don’t know much about the game, so I typed the term “Second Life” into urbandictionary.com (where I do all of my serious research) and got this:

“Second Life:

A game where desperate people with no lives or friends get to live out their dreams of social acceptance and sex. The vast majority of Second Life players are unattractive and socially awkward.”

Well, there you have it. Put that definition together with the mugshot and it explains a lot.

Mark Knapp (48) and his blushing bride Elizabeth Pester (33) stand accused of neglecting their 2 year old daughter in favour of looking after their Second Life avatars. The couple were charged with child neglect and abuse after it was found that their daughter only weighed 5.8 kg (13 lbs). She was rushed to hospital in a severe state of malnutrition. On top of being severely underweight, she couldn’t walk or talk, and the back of her head was flat.

When the cops came around to arrest the couple, they found them playing Second Life. Mark asked the officers whether they were here because their daughter had died. NO THEY WERE NOT! They should thank their fucking lucky stars that she wasn’t dead! They were so absorbed in their crappy little game that they didn’t even know their daughter was alive or dead.

The couple were known to authorities, with their daughter being taken away in 2012 for being underweight. She was returned (wtf?) on the condition that she was to be weighed weekly to ensure that she reached a healthy weight. The weigh-ins did not happen! Big fat FAIL.

Elizabeth allegedly rescheduled her daughter’s appointments and requested that the appointments be scheduled for the afternoon, citing that she worked as a DJ and needed her sleep in the mornings. The DJ gig, as it turns out, belongs to her Second Life avatar, DJ Syn. The immersion was that deep, she thought her avatar was actually her. She and Mark also had a virtual wedding and she shared pictures of it on her Facebook, saying

” THE MOST AMAZING NIGHT A BRIDE COULD HAVE I WONT TRADE IT FOR THE WORLD!!!”

The silliness of this would be so funny, if a kid wasn’t near death due to the idiocy of her breeders. She actually tried to pass off Second Life as her own life?? Her real life must be so boring.

Here’s a picture of their avatars (for a comparison to their actual mugshots). The top one is from their fake wedding:

You’re kidding yourselves if you think you actually look like that.

Pester’s fake job as DJ Syn

The ghastly gamers are being held in Tulsa county jail on US$50, 000 each. And no, that’s not in Simoleons. Their little girl is still in a critical condition, trying to regain her real life.

Imagine how good this family could be living if Mark and Elizabeth put in as much effort into their real life as they did building up their Second Life avatars?

PS: If you get the chance, look up Second Life trolling videos on YouTube. These players go to pieces over nothing!

Boys pulled from house full of cat shit, can only speak in grunts

Boys found in Denver house full of cat faeces spoke in grunts

http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/local-news/suspects-in-child-abuse-of-four-boys-found-in-filthy-conditions-have-faced-similar-charges-before

Here’s a horrifying tale, just in time for Hallowe’en. Try not to scream when you see the mugshot.

Wayne Sperling, 66, and Lorinda Bailey, 35, are charged with multiple counts of child abuse.

A dirty wizard and his dimwitted apprentice

Four boys were pulled from a filthy house in Denver, CO. They were filthy, three of them were still in nappies and could only speak in grunts, according to reports. Their breeders, Wayne Sperling (66) and Lorinda Bailey (35) have been charged with multiple counts of child abuse. They are repeat offenders, with charges dating back as far as 2006.

The latest act of foul foolishness was discovered when Lorinda took the youngest boy (2) to the doctor for an apparent cut on his head. The doctor, not being stupid unlike the two numbskulls up there, also noticed suspicious bruising behind the boy’s right ear consistent with pinching and called the police. The doctor also noticed that the child smelt like cigarette smoke, was unwashed and his speech was far behind what was normal for a 2 year old.

When the police and Denver social services turned up to the house, they observed that three other children aged 4, 5, and 6, all appeared to be the same size and two of the children were only wearing nappies. That’s not the worst of it…

The house was redolent with the stench of a decomposing animal, so badly that the police couldn’t stand to be inside. They couldn’t locate the source of the smell, because every surface inside the house was covered in flies. That’s a fuckload of flies, and that judgement is something coming from someone who lives in the Land of the Flies. Lorinda, the foul temptress of the faeces, had the gall to deny that the state of the house was dirty or unhygienic, adding (and I quote)

“The feces looks like human but it’s the cats”

Oh, that makes it all better then…NOT!!! Are you fucking kidding me? Cat poo contains many harmful parasites, and can cause toxoplasmosis in young children. It can also cause worms, plus it contains all the other nasty germs that you find in human shit such as e-coli and salmonella. Under the boys’ bunk beds, the feline faeces was 1 – 2 inches thick on the floor. There was also cat piss and dead flies on the floor where the boys would play. Lorinda was allegedly living in another unit away from the boys but claimed to see them every day. Interesting. She thinks that cat shit/piss and dead flies everywhere aren’t unhygienic, yet refuses to live in the mess. And then consigns her children to fester in that filth.

This isn’t the first ride at the rodeo for these rednecks. They were charged in 2006 and 2009 with child abuse, with the latter resulting in the kids being taken. So why the fuck were they given back to these creeps?

Shame on you, Colorado. And to think that I wanted to stay at the Stanley Hotel at Estes Park (where The Shining was filmed) and go skiing in Aspen, as well as see the Adirondacks. Lift your game, otherwise you won’t be seeing my tourist dollars!

And please outlaw incest, it looks like that father-daughter relationship is a little too friendly…
