The Bad Boyfriend and the Attack of the Killer Shower

Joshua Howard

Joshua Howard

Police: 2-year-old assault victim dies, mom’s boyfriend remains in jail:

First responders were called to the Portland, Oregon, motel room of 28-year-old Joshua Howard because his girlfriend’s two-year-old son was unconscious. Howard allegedly told police that he was giving the boy a shower and left him alone for a moment when he heard a thump. Except that the police say the boy was dry and had bruising on his head. After the boy was rushed to the hospital it was determined that he was brain-dead and eventually died from his trauma. Doctors say that the boy had multiple injuries including a fractured jaw and skull.

Eventually Howard is said to have changed his story and allegedly admitted to police that he assaulted the child.

First he said he “tossed or dropped” the victim in the bathroom and was upset because the boy had thrown up on the bed and was crying, according to court documents.

Police said he then later admitted to dragging the boy into the bathroom and throwing him with a lot of force into the front of the toilet.

I don’t get why so many violent assholes think that babies aren’t supposed to puke and cry. A number of years ago I was dating a girl who had a son about 2-years-old. I’d be lying if I said I was a fan of the kid but I dealt with it. One weekend we went on a trip and on the way back the boy let a torrent of vomit fly in my new truck it would have made Linda Blair proud. Was I mad? You better believe it. Did I strike a child that wasn’t even mine? Of course not. After being angry for about a second my common sense kicked in and then I was more concerned for the child’s well-being. Even though I wasn’t fond of the kid I didn’t want to wish any harm on him. Luckily it was just car sickness.

Back to the story at hand though the mother of the child allegedly said that Howard had hit the boy before but she didn’t intervene because she thought that would only make it worse. What? That makes no sense whatsoever. Ladies, if a man hits any of your kids he should be fearing for his life because of what you may do. At the very least you call the cops and you get you and your kids out of there. There is no man worth that.

Spider eggs in a toddler’s hair

(Special thanks to Catalina for the post)

Secoy Koch-Miller

Secoy Koch-Miller

Wisconsin woman accused of raising kids in squalor:

Burnett woman charged with child neglect:

I admit, I’m still trying to lose some post-pregnancy weight, so losing my appetite after reading about this case isn’t a big loss. However, the details leave me feeling infuriated and wondering how anyone could be so devoid of any sympathy and compassion, especially for their own offspring.

Okay. On to the story.

25-year-old Secoy S. Koch-Miller of Burnett, WI is the “mother” of two boys, ages 2 months and 2 years. The baby daddy of the infant, while in jail, reported to detectives that when he had been at the home of Koch-Miller, the residency seemed uninhabitable. Articles don’t state the reason for his jail sentence, but we do know he had at least enough sense to report the squalor.

Detectives then spoke with human services, and the case worker, familiar with Koch-Miller, stated she had visited the home beforehand but was always denied entrance. Hmm…I wonder why.

Luckily, baby daddy’s statement was enough to get a warrant, and officers and the case worker entered the home last November. What they found was extremely deplorable.

The craptastic home was filled with so much junk, that some rooms were blocked off due to the sheer volume of stuff that had been hoarded.

According to one article, “the kitchen contained several dirty dishes, dead flies and other bugs and cat feces. The inside of the refrigerator and freezer was covered in black mold, maggots and decayed food. There was cold water, but no hot water, and the bathroom had only a toilet. The pipes for the shower and bath appeared to have been cut off. The toilet did not appear to be working.”

Yup, the toilet wasn’t working because the septic tank was too full.

Upon examination of the children, the 2-year-old was found to weigh only 20 pounds. That’s not a huge surprise considering what had been found in the fridge. The poor boy had bug bites all over his body, a bruised eye, and had spiders and spider eggs in his hair. (The thought of the little guy like that makes me want to cry!) To make horrific matters worse, he also had a respiratory and ear infection that required antibiotics.

The infant, on the other hand, was found in better condition, growing at a “more normal rate.”

Fortunately, the children were placed in foster care and the toddler has gained weight.

Koch-Miller was charged with neglecting a child causing bodily harm, a felony, and neglecting a child, a misdemeanor. An initial court appearance is scheduled for March 10th.

And as far as the home is concerned, Burnett town leaders are considering the condemning the building. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Florida methtards leave their kids in the woods

Michael and Sarah Butcher

Michael and Sarah Butcher

Florida Parents Arrested After Abandoning Three Kids in the Woods:

30-year-olds Michael and Sarah Butcher were found by police in Punta Gorda, Florida, after parking in a private RV lot. Why were they parking there? Well, police say they found meth along with a needle and spoon in the glove box so I’m going to guess that they were looking to smoke meth. After the arrest the pair claimed to be brother and sister.

So this is BB so there has to be kids involved right? So were the kids in the truck while Uncle Daddy and Aunt Mommy smoked meth? Don’t be ridiculous. Only real lowlifes do that. In this case the Butchers allegedly abandoned their kids, ages 10, 8, and 6, in the woods and drove off so they could smoke meth. They supposedly did it like the assholes who dump their dogs. They took them out to the woods, told them go play, then hauled ass out of there. It wasn’t until police received a call about wandering hungry kids that anything was done about them. I guess the Butcher ‘siblings’ didn’t think to tell police to help their kids. Of course they didn’t. That would only get them in more trouble, which there in now, so I guess they’re plan really didn’t work that well.

If I had Walter White-like chemistry skills I’d make a super-meth that would make the tweakers’ heads literally explode. Quicker than rehab and no strain on the taxpayers.

Methtards charged with burying newborn in bucket of concrete

Matthew and Krystal Scroggs

Matthew and Krystal Scroggs

Cass County parents charged in death of baby found in concrete:

Both parents of baby found in concrete now in custody:

Matthew and Krystal Scroggs of Pleasant Hill, Missouri are methtards of the highest order. The last time Mrs. Scroggs was pregnant she smoked a lot of meth, didn’t get any prenatal care, told no one she was pregnant, then delivered at home. Suffice it to say the baby was born with complications and after about a day died. In keep with their dumbass methtard decisions Mr. Scroggs decided that the best course of action would be to encase the newborn’s body in concrete inside a plastic bucket. The cause of death was basically a meth overdose because of Mrs. Tweaker’s habits.

The birth took place in November but for some reason the police didn’t charge them for three months. Probably waiting for the toxicology results.

Their other children, ages 11, 6, 4 and 3, have been placed in state custody and also tested positive for meth. Both Breeders are looking at life sentences and then some on second-degree murder charges.

Having never been a drug addict at what point does all sensibility and consideration for your children just completely go up in smoke? Not to mention I would never smoke anything that mixes trailer trash and chemistry.

We get letters: Thanks for giving the victims a voice

mailbag

We received the following e-mail recently…

I just wanted to say thank you. A few years ago, I came across a link for this site. As an abuse victim, I feel it’s important that these kids get their stories told. People should know what they’ve been through. People should love them and in more tragic cases, miss them. Even if they’ve never met them. About 2 years ago, my husband and I were trying to conceive our first child. It wasn’t going very well, and I fell into a deep depression. While reading your site, my heart would constantly break with every story posted. It was unfair that these monsters were given the greatest gift that the universe had to offer, and abused and neglected them. I’m proud to say that I am now a mother to a beautiful healthy 9 month baby boy. I believe that your site helps others to realize that they must always, ALWAYS, be aware of the people they bring around their children. I just wish this site existed and was available to my parents while I was growing up. Maybe life wouldn’t have been so hard for me.

But enough of the sob story, I just wanted to thank you. All of you, for giving victims voices. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

It is we who should thank you. Thanks to letters like this it makes us realize that we are making a difference even with our snark, sarcasm and foul language.

See kids, it’s not all hate mail

SC Methtards charged with keeping kids in car overnight

Alphalena Littlejohn and Jeffrey Wallace

Alphalena Littlejohn and Jeffrey Wallace

SCSO: Parents smoked meth in car at hospital:

Spartanburg couple accused of smoking meth in front of their children:

Jeffrey Miller Wallace, 36, and Alphalena Jo Littlejohn, 30, were arrested recently for smoking meth in the parking lot of a Spartanburg, South Carolina Hospital. Police also say that the pair were there over night smoking meth while their kids, ages 6 and 1, were in the car not properly dressed for the weather. I live in the Carolinas and while we haven’t had the bitter cold weather that has been happening in the North, overnight lows have been in the 30s. If not properly dressed and kept in the car like that overnight children that age can succumb to exposure.

Allegedly the pair of tweakers have admitted to smoking meth but claim they didn’t smoke it in the car with the kids. I guess that makes it ok then. Also there was no food in the car but there was an open container of booze. I wonder if that was for the kids since mommy and daddy had their delicious meth to smoke.

I wonder if they sold their kids clothes on the way to their dealer.

They may have been using the hospital parking lot since DSS was already on to them.

Is it just me or does daddy methtard look like Squidward? I didn’t know they had tweakers in Bikini Bottom.

Thanks to Jessie for the tip.

Florida Breeder charged when 13-year-old runs over his 6-year-old daughter

 David Courson

David Courson

Bond Denied For Man Charged In Daughter’s Death:

38-year-old David Courson of Monticello, Florida, has been charged with manslaughter in the January death of his 6-year-old daughter Becca. Police allege that Courson was letting a 13-year-old drive his truck when the accident happened. They say that Courson was drunk and liquor, weed and what sounds like to me were homemade redneck fireworks, i.e., a bomb.

And oh yeah the 13-year-old was not his daughter but he’s been arrested for allegedly having sex with her.

With Courson’s wife listening in court on Monday, the prosecutor read some of those messages including one from Courson to the girl about his wife.

“I think she’s jealous of you, you’re everything she is not…pretty, sexy and smart,” said the message.

There was also this exchange between Courson and the girl about their sexual encounter and what Courson’s wife would think about it.

“If she knew what had happened in her bed she would need counseling,” said Courson. “It was on her side of it too,” the girl replied. “Ha, ha, ha all she would need is sound effects,” Courson replied.

So drunk redneck letting his 13-year-old squeeze drive the truck that killed his daughter. Did I forget anything? Oh yeah. His wife may or may not be standing by her man.

Following his arrest last month his wife told us she was supporting her husband.

After court, we asked her if she still was and she referred us to David’s lawyer.

If this story was any more classy I’d have to rent a tux.

This story makes me want to break out the old chestnut of you need a license to own a dog but any idiot can have a kid.

Thanks to Cynthia for the tip.

Breeder, Grand-Breeder and Bad Boyfriend accused of Ohio house of horrors where kids were tied up and raped

Bobbi Sue Pack

Bobbi Sue Pack

Child’s email leads to arrests:

Again I have to apologize for sitting on a story that’s over a week old.

In Wheelersburg, Ohio police have arrested 31-year-old Bobbi Sue Pack. her mother 52-year-old Edwina Louis, and Pack’s boyfriend, 44-year-old Juan Carlos Sanchez. The trio have been accused of keeping three of Pack’s four children, ages 11, 9 and 8, chained to their beds and beating them with whips and paddles while also depriving them of food. Sanchez has also been charged with allegedly raping some of the children. None of the charges involve the youngest child, age 2. I guess they must have a sign in their house that says “You must be this tall to be chained, beaten, raped and starved.”

Police were tipped off when one of the kids e-mailed their teacher at their virtual school. Basically the kids were being home schooled and were only released from their bindings to do their lessons on the computer. Once again home schooling is used as a cover for child abuse. Now I’m not saying that all home schoolers are child abusers. I’m not even saying that a majority of them are. However there are too many people who use it as a form of child abuse camouflage. You can see more of my take on that here.

Also I always find it bizarre how groups of people like this, can get together and think that this is an acceptable form of parenting. Seriously, is there some hidden section of Match.com where these freaks find each other?

This also reminds me of a story from almost 10 years ago that took place in Ohio where a family, whose name escapes me at this time, kept their foster kids in a series of elaborate wooden cages. I’m really beginning to think that Ohio and Michigan are battling it out to see who can be the Florida of the Midwest.

It’s too bad these scumbags can’t be shackled top their cots while their cell doors are left open. That would be justice.

Thanks to Helen for the tip.
