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…..

Cold Water Didn’t Help….Let’s Try Hot


Didn’t I just write this article up last week – with different names? Another toddler killed for doing what toddlers are prone to do…..wetting his pants.
Jonathan Alicea, 19, has been arrested for the murder of his girlfriend’s 2-year old son, Jariel Alexander.

It seems Jon-boy was a bit miffed at the baby for refusing to eat his scrambled eggs and hot dogs, then when Jariel stood up and wet himself, Alicea told him to leave the table and go change his underwear. The boy walked down the hall, but stopped before reaching the bathroom, at which point the monster who was dating his mom hit him in the head. Alicea used the word push to describe what he did to the boy’s head, but…..well, you know – I just don’t believe that in the least. Unless he pushed Jariel’s head into the wall, that is.

Alicea said that the child lost consciousness immediately, and he tried to revive him by splashing water on him in the bathroom. When that didn’t work, he claims he attempted CPR (which was also unsuccessful) before boiling a pot of water, AND POURING IT ON THE CHILD! Yes, you read it right. He poured boiling water on the child to try to revive him. I guess he thought that he hadn’t done enough damage already and that burning the boy might be helpful…..because we all know that causing severe burns on a 2-year old is the best way to help them when they are unconscious.

When the child’s mother got home, Alicea had wrapped him in a towel and told the mom that the boy was choking. I assume that it wasn’t until they reached the hospital that she realized the true extent of her son’s injuries. When asked why he hadn’t simply called 911 when the child became unresponsive, the penis responded that his cell phone had been disconnected, and he didn’t like to “depend on neighbors for anything”. Who gives a damn what he likes or doesn’t like? That baby was injured and needed immediate help – maybe if he had done the right thing from the start, the boy might still be alive. No, wait – if he had done the right thing from the start, he would never have hit the child to begin with.

No charges have been filed against the mother, and she still has custody of her 6-year old. No word on whether the BF had abused her kids in the past, or if this was a first time offense. My money is on repeated abuse, though. Most abusers start small, and work their way up to murder gradually. Maybe Alicea was just more ambitious than most, though, and wanted to go straight for the kill instead of spending time on the hunt.

Since I generally like to dispense unsolicited advice in my articles, I will go ahead and give you all the benefit of my experience with potty training children, of which I have six. Beating is not a good potty training tool. Neither is locking them in the bathroom, tying them to the toilet, or pouring boiling water on them. Some children take longer to potty train than others. My oldest was completely potty trained by 18 months. My youngest, who is 3 1/2, still doesn’t see the need to stop playing long enough to go to the potty. Eventually he’ll get it though, and I’m absolutely certain it will not involve any beatings from me to accomplish this goal. One day he’ll say to himself, “Gee, carrying this lumpy, squishy, smelly pile of poop around in my drawers is kind of uncomfortable. Maybe I should see what this water filled thing in the bathroom is all about; after all, my sisters seem to like it OK.”

Thanks go out again to SithSnoopy, who I’m sure also does not plan on beating her child for wetting himself. Because she has more sense than Katia the dead dog.

UPDATE: We have received information concerning Picture albums of Silkia Mateo, the mother of little Jariel. Since her MySpace is set to private, these links provide some pics of the little boy and his mother. See it here.

Update on Eli Johnson’s Death

Posted on by 21 comments


The two scary looking people are the egg donor and penis who killed little Eli. I first posted about this case here.

New details about the abuse of Eli have come to light. It seems Valdez is claiming to have ‘blacked out’ (after beating the child) and when “he came to … he had Eli’s head stuck in the water of the toilet”. Riiiiight. He then said that after he beat the baby, he put him in ‘time out’. People, if you’re gonna lie to the cops, at least be consistent. They’ll still know you’re a liar, but at least you won’t look quite as stupid. Wait…yeah, you will.

It has also become known that the incubator KNEW Valdez abused both of her kids. She had taken a prescription drug, and was sitting in the living room while the dickhead (look at his picture) killed her baby. Both of these useless lumps of walking DNA have been charged with first degree murder.

It has now been proven that the nasty tramp was more concerned about her vaginal filler than her kids. When Valdez left bruises on the boy last October, Shafer told authorities that she caused the injuries, in order to protect her sex-toy. She wanted to protect that abusive bastard more than she wanted to protect her son. Sickening.

There are more details, but you’ll have to follow the link to read about them. I’m too disgusted to waste any more time on these two monsters.

Rest in peace, Eli – you’re finally safe.

Thanks again to Jenny for the tip.

An Accident Provokes an ‘On Purpose’


egg donor, penis, and victim

Little Eli Johnson accidentally wet himself, and it cost him his life. He was only three years old.

Eddie Valdez, 23, (the vagina filler) has been arrested on first degree murder and child abuse charges, and the sorry excuse for a mother, Tye Nicole Johnson, 24, has been arrested on first degree murder and permitting child abuse.

Valdez told police that he got angry with the child for wetting himself, so he beat the living hell out of him. Did that work, Eddie? Is little Eli potty trained now? I guess so, since dead kids don’t tend to wet their pants like the live ones do.

The ME’s office said little Eli’s death “was caused by blunt force injuries to the head and abdominal area.” There was also a time lapse of 5 hours between the time of the beating, and the time medical attention was sought. The mother admitted to knowing something was wrong with her son, but she still waited FIVE HOURS before taking him to the hospital. At least she’s been charged with murder one just like the sperm spigot was. She certainly deserves it. How can you sit by and watch your child die?

Even scarier, Johnson wrote on her MySpace page that “she loves working with “disability kids” and said her dream is to open up a day care.” I sure am glad they arrested her before she could fulfill her dreams. I guess she was planning to have her son as her first disabled kid, after her BF beat some brain damage into him, but instead Eli is dead.

I sincerely hope that the inmates take turns beating the piss out of Valdez, and then beat him some more each time he pees himself. Same for the birth vessel.

Thanks to Jenny for the tip.

Blunt force trauma is not a potty training tool

Goodyear girl still in hospital 3 weeks after potty-training ‘war’:

What is it about potty training that drives bad parents to violent extremes?

Take for example Raul Varela, 40, and his wife, Tricia Varela, 39, of Goodyear, Arizona. They’re the parents of six kids. They have two biological sons ages 7 and 9, and four adopted daughters ages 2 through 8. You’d think by now that they would have this potty training thing down pat. Apparently not because 3 weeks ago Mrs. Valera brought her 4-year-old daughter to the ER for abdominal pain. As usual in these cases the hospital discovered signs of abuse consisting of bruises on the girls arms, legs, back head and abdomen and had a broken arm. The hospital said that the injuries were consistent with blunt force trauma.

The Valera’s admitted to police that they were in a potty training ‘war’ with their daughter and this is what they allegedly told police…

Raul and Tricia Varela admitted they had caused the girl’s injuries on April 25, the report states. The couple said they forced her on the toilet by restraining her with her hands held behind her back, pushing on her stomach, back and legs and pushing her head down between her legs.

Raul Varela told police he and his wife often force the girl to stay on the toilet for “hours on end” because it’s the only way they can get her to comply, according to the report. He said he was aware doing so causes visible injury and knew she was hurt on April 25 but did not get her medical attention.

The Varelas brought her to the hospital three days later because they thought she was constipated.

Not for the blunt force trauma injuries that riddled this girl’s body but because she was ‘constipated’. Well thank God for constipation or this girl might be dead.

When teaching young children like this things aren’t supposed to be a ‘war’ and more than likely this girl will probably be scarred for life about using the bathroom.

Thanks to Tricia (not the one in the article) for the tip.
