Baby dies in Colorado shaking case

bkollarJack Koller, baby in alleged Lafayette child abuse case, dies:

I originally posted about alleged child abusing douchebag Benjamin Charles Koller here. To refresh your memory whether you like it or not Koller was accused of shaking and smothering his 2-month-old son Jack because he couldn’t stop the baby from crying.

Now Koller has been upgraded to alleged child murdering douchebag as his son has passed away. an autopsy was performed but the results have not been made public as of yet.

Murder charges have not been filed yet as prosecutors are awaiting the autopsy results but I can’t imagine that they wouldn’t be.

Thanks to Angel and April for the assist.

Colo. man arrested for shaking and smothering son

Lafayette man suspected of dropping, biting infant:

That’s 26-year-old Benjamin Charles Koller of Laffayette, Colorado. He’s accused of not only shaking his 2-month-old son but also smothering him to the point that the baby has extensive brain damage and may not survive.

Of course it was because the douchebag couldn’t handle the baby crying. And check out the precision in which he used to suffocate his own son…

“Benjamin demonstrated and described with his hands how he put his fingers over Jack’s face, with two fingers on his mouth and two fingers on his throat, with his thumb on the back of his neck (counter pressure), constricting Jack’s airway,” the affidavit reads. “Benjamin said that Jack kicked his legs and moved his arms during the process. He said once he realized Jack began to change color, he stopped.”

It’s like this jackass has a black belt in child abuse.

He also allegedly shook the baby so hard the baby fell from his arms and hit his head against a changing table.

It seemed his 20-year-old common law wife wasn’t too concerned about the injuries either.

There’s also some accusations of biting the child as well among other sadistic moves.

Thanks to Christina for the tip.

Denver man accused of smothering crying daughter

Dad Accused Of Smothering Crying Baby:

27-year-old Keith Weatherspoon of Denver, Colorado has been charged with first degree murder in the death of his 5-month-old daughter. He allegedly smothered the baby with a pillow because she wouldn’t stop crying.

That’s what babies do Jackass, they cry. If you can’t figure out why without resorting to violence you have no business being in society let alone being a parent.

Thanks to Danielle for the tip.

Kelly and Claude McGrew Arrested on Supplying Pot to Their Teens (and More Colorado Shenanigans)

kelly-mcgrew.jpgI’m always on the lookout for Colorado stories. But when the arresting officer is the dad of your son’s classmate? Well, let’s just say this is literally too close to home. Kelly Lynn McGrew, 36, was arrested by Dacono, Colo. police for supplying pot to her three teenage children and two of their friends. One of the children told a Frederick High School official that Kelly was sharing drugs with them.

Mom wasn’t the only one partying with the youngsters. The children’s father, Claude McGrew, 48, was smoking with them, too. Police have charged him on suspicion of misdemeanor drug use and child abuse. Kelly McGrew was arrested on five counts of misdemeanor child abuse and five felony counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She’s being held in the Weld County Jail. The kids ages 15, 16, and 17 were taken into protective custody by Weld County Social Services.

Colorado parents just love to get high with their kids and their friends. Last December, Suzanne Moore of Erie, Colo. got to two years in prison for giving marijuana to her teenage son and four other teenagers. Then there’s “Cool Mom” Silvia Johnson of Arvada, Colo. who got to 30 years in prison for contributing to the delinquency of minors, sexual assault, and violating a restraining order. Johnson, 41, held weekly parties and provided pot, meth and alcohol to eight boys. She had sex with five of them. It was such a big story that the Smoking Gun posted the affadavit, and newspapers as far away as Australia picked up on it.

I guess we’re called the Mile High state for a reason.

Michael P. Burke Charged with Pouring Boiling Water into Daughter's Tub

Boiling waterLet’s see…who’s up today on our constant parade of parental miscreants? Ah, yes, here’s a lovely specimen. And yet, while it’s a horrible story, there’s also a story of love and tenderness wrapped inside of it.

That love and tenderness doesn’t come from Michael P. Burke of Colorado Springs, Colorado, though. This bastard was already up on misdemeanor child abuse charges for DWI-ing around town with his two young girls in the car. But that was nothing compared to what happened next. Burke has admitted to at least one investigator that he poured boiling water into his 9-year-old daughter’s bath and forced her to sit in it for 30 minutes while she screamed, “It’s going to kill me!” The “loving father” then forced her to lay on the floor for 30 minutes, and pushed her head down with his foot when she tried to get up. When her 12-year-old sister tried to call the cops, Burke kicked his older daughter so hard that it left a womping bruise.

Burke told the investigator that he “lost it”. No, Mr. Burke. You didn’t “lose it”. You took 10 to 15 minutes to boil two pots of large water on a stove before dumping them into your little girl’s bath. When she screamed in pain and terror, you held her in and let the water tear away at her flesh. Your act was cold and premeditated. You’re a sadistic fuck who delights in controlling and torturing other people. Striking a child once, out of anger? That’s “losing it”. Subjecting a 9-year-old to an hour of torture? That’s the mark of a depraved human being.

Where in God’s name does the “love and tenderness” come in here? It comes from Burke’s ex-girlfriend, who fled this tyrannical dad after he allegedly slashed the tires of her car. Concerned for the safety of the girls, she stopped by their mobile home, where the two told her what had gone down. The girls had tried to call police, but Burke had stopped them. The ex then devised a plan to get Burke out of the mobile home long enough for the girls to run to the club house at the trailer park and dial 911.

Goddess knows what would’ve happened to those girls if this woman, who wasn’t even a blood relation, hadn’t been concerned enough to keep tabs on their well-being. She showed more love toward these two in this one incident than their own father likely ever has in their entire lives. The thought of those two children being subjected to that savagery sickens me.

Michael P. Burke faces up to 12 years in prison. But, hey – let’s just put him in a bathtub of boiling water for an hour and call it even. Whaddya say, prosecutors?

Sarah Smith, Boyfriend Claim Ignorance, Not Malice, in Daughter’s Vodka Poisoning

Sarah Smith and boyfriendWhen I was traveling once for business, I arranged for a limo service to take me from the airport to the conference I was attending. I arrived in Chicago at 8am, settled into the back seat of my ride, and poured myself some water from a decanter in the sidebar. “Um, sir,” the driver asked politely, “what are you doing?”

“Uhhh…getting a drink of water,” I replied nervously. I was 22, and green in business travel. Should I have tipped the driver before drinking? Were you not supposed to drink the water in Chicago?

He chuckled. “That’s not water, sir. That’s vodka.”

I sniffed it and, sure as shit, he was right. Being a virtual tea-totaler at the time, I didn’t drink anything until I got to the conference. But damn, it would have made the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America waaaaay more interesting.

Given that, I can almost believe 19-year-old Sarah Smith of Denver, Colorado, who claims that she had no idea her boyfriend’s “water bottle” contained vodka when she used it to mix her three-month-old daughter’s formula. Kristina Delaroche damn near died after spiking a blood alcohol content of .384, which is 20 Irishmen times the legal limit in Colorado. But it doesn’t add up. At the very best, boyfriend Ryan Delaroche (the baby’s father) sounds like a total, absolute, irresponsible dick. First off, who walks around – nay, DRIVES around – with a water bottle full of vodka?! He was in the store buying diapers, and mom and baby were in the car, when the incident happened. Second, police report that Superdick dropped the mom and baby off at the hospital and drove off. Way to represent, homes. Your child is potentially dying, and you leave to…what? Cover your ass? Dispense of the evidence? Your ass should have been in that hospital with them. There was nothing more important that you had to be doing at that moment. Nothing.

The El Paso Department of Human Services has custody of the girl while they sort this mess out. I’m not buying this was an “accident”. At best, it was gross negligence. What about you guys? Do you think this was an innocent mistake…or something more?

Lawrence Trujillo, Denver Hit and Run Driver, Owed Back Child Support

Scene of accident in Denver, ColoradoRecently we were witness to a horrible tragedy in Denver, Colorado, when a man named Lawrence Trujillo drove drunk through a red light and killed a mother and her two children. The incident has led people to ask: what kind of man is Lawrence Trujillo?

Answers to that question are leaking in…and they’re not good. Trujillo is the father of three kids by a previous relationship, including a 14-year-old daughter and two 12-year-old twins. PBB has seen documentary proof* that Trujillo also had an outstanding bench warrant against him for his failure to appear – twice – before a judge for nonpayment of child support. The failure to appear landed him in jail on September 20th. On the 22nd, Trujillo posted bond in the amount of $5,000 and walked out a free man – for the moment.

Unfortunately, his ability to post bond proved fatal to Rebecca, Macie and Garrison Bingham.

Not only did Trujillo inflict irreparable harm upon another family – he inflicted financial harm upon his own kids. This wasn’t a man who made a single stupid, fateful decision; this was a trainwreck of a human being who was careening recklessly through life, hurting everybody who made the mistake of loving him. And as if that weren’t bad enough, he had to destroy a family whose only crime was going out for hot chocolate.

(* NOTE: I’m keeping the details of this information private in order to protect the identity and privacy of Trujillo’s family.)

Baby Nearly Plunges to Death after Mom Leaves Tot with Brothers

BalconyRiddle me this, parents of PBB: Would you leave a 9-month old babe in the care of her 10-year-old and 13-year-old brother? If not, then you’re a step ahead of this unnamed mom in Denver, Colorado, whose baby girl nearly fell to her death after the boys left her attended in their apartment. According to reports, the woman’s daughter crawled out the front door, and was next seen hanging by a single hand off of a balcony nearly 19 feet off of the sidewalk. A neighbor who was walking by, thank the gods, noticed the girl, and caught her after she lost her grip.

Now, I’ll cut the mom a little slack here. She was, reportedly, at work. Her decision to leave a baby in the charge of young kids was probably influenced by the lack of affordable child care. Still, most 13-year-olds are not mature enough to care for a baby. Most kids don’t start babysitting until they’re 14 – and even then, few parents recommend putting infants in their care. Let me put it this way: would you be able to work unperturbed, knowing your baby’s life was in the hands of your average 13-year-old?

Mom Gets 30 Years For Throwing Sex Parties

vert.coolmom.apI’ll preface this piece by saying that I don’t condone what Silvia Johnson did. Giving drugs and alcohol to minors – bad.

But…30 years? Are you shitting me? That’s a 2nd Degree Murder sentence! ! We’ve seen so many stories of parents getting a slap on the wrist for beating and torturing kids, and the judge in this case wants Johnson locked up for three decades for what is essentially a victimless crime? (Yeah, I said it. She gave these kids drugs and alcohol. Which is bad. But there’s a great deal of difference between handing a teenager a joint and a Miller and, say, shooting someone.) Normally, the less I know about the specifics of the crime the better, but in this case I’m dying to hear the details. And I’m very curious about the judge – something tells me he goes to sleep with a gun in one hand and a Bible in the other.

One more thing. I can understand a teenager wanting to sleep with that LeTourneau chick. But Miss Johnson looks an awful lot like the mom on That 70’s Show. Call me shallow, but that’s wrong on so many levels.
