Happy Monday Folks…we have another group of stellar mommies to read about today.
Child torture suspect arrested
Starting us off on the fine Monday morning we have Moron Mommy #1, Amy Marie Imler (27). Amy is accused of torturing her 8-year-old asthmatic daughter. By torture I mean, pouring hot sauce in her eyes, smashing a kitten’s head in front of her, force feeding her cat feces, kicking her, “hog tying” her and withholding food.
The abuse inflicted on her daughter was reported in August of 2011 but Amy was only arrested and charged in July. Her daughter was removed 10 months ago from her home and has been living with her bio-dad. Since being removed she has been in therapy and has begun to make regular outcries about what her mother did to her
Court documents say the little girl was repeatedly abused by her mother having been “hog tied” enough times to be able to demonstrate to counselors the different ways she had been tied up. Her boyfriend is also named as a potential suspect, as he is accused of helping his woman use a pressure washer to spray down certain injuries to the child.
Imler’s other two daughters (3-years-old and 9-months-old) have both been relocated, although neither were found to have been abused.
Imler has been charged with injury to a child and was released on a $50,000 bond.

Mom accused of trading baby for truck
Ladies and gents meet Heather Kaminsky. Heather was apprehended in Florida and is being sent back to Kentucky to face felony human trafficking charges and meth related charges, after police say she traded her 6-month-old son for a 1999 Dodge Dakota. Kaminsky later sold the truck for $800.

According to police Kaminsky was living in Florida, where 2 of her other children were removed so she fled toKentuckyto have her son to avoid him being removed.

Children found dead in car in Smyrna
Smyrna mom charged in heat deaths of children
Thursday August 2nd in Smyrna,TN temperatures reached the mid to high 90’s, not the kind of day you want to be outside, let alone trapped in car with the windows up. But that is exactly how Daniel Marise (3) and his sister Savannah (2) spent the last minutes of their young lives. The siblings died of apparent heat stroke after being left alone in their mother’s car.
At approximately 3:45 pm investigators arrived at the family’s home to find the two children lying near the car, unresponsive. It appears someone found the children in the car and removed them before police were called and arrived.
According to their mother Samantha Harper (25), she put the children in the car and went back into the house and fell asleep. Hummmm…excuse me…it was 90 effing degrees outside.
Samantha has been charged with two counts of especially aggravated child abuse and remains behind bars on a $200,000 bond.
Following her arrest the family’s home has been condemned after authorities found the living conditions “deplorable.”
Police say additional charges are likely.
R.I.P. Daniel and Savannah
Mother arrested for leaving baby in locked car while shopping
Well…we have ourselves another mother who decided it was good idea to leave her infant in a car with the windows up in triple digit heat. I am not sure how it comes to be that people leave their children alone in the car in the heat, I don’t even leave my kids alone in the car to run in and pay for gas in the heat or cold…EVER.
A maintenance worker at a mall in San Diego, called police to report an infant locked in a car with the windows up and doors locked. When police arrived the found the 4-month-old unresponsive and “sweating profusely” inside the car and forced entry to get her out. Her mother Starley Cristal Geart (25) then emerged from a nearby store, telling police she had only intended to leave the baby alone for a brief period. Well…Starley (love the name by the way…NOT) it’s against the law to do that asshole, not to mention you are in California in the dead of summer. Dumbass!
Medics we able to revive the baby, she was taken to the hospital, treated, evaluated and released into protective custody. After rescuing the baby police and firefighters closed up Starley’s car to test how hot the interior might get, the temperature reached a life-threatening level of 140 degrees. A few more minutes and the baby would have died.
Starley was booked on suspicion of felony child endangerment. She was released on her own recognizance.
Mom allegedly whips son to death for wetting himself
Our final “Mommy” of the day is Vasti Coleman. Vasti confessed to whipping her son Kyron Barnes (4) to death for wetting himself. Why, why, why?
Coleman reportedly confessed to EMS workers when they arrived on the scene, saying “I did it, I beat him, it’s all my fault and I don’t care what happens to me.” According to reports Coleman began whipping the boy for more than 20 minutes in the bathtub until he stopped breathing. One of the boy’s sisters told investigators their mother beat him with a cord because “the belt was broken because mom kept whipping the kids so hard it broke into pieces.” That is awful, makes me feel sick.
Both girls were taken into protective custody and then placed with a foster family.
Coleman has a history with CPS that includes investigations in March 2007, 2009, 2010, August 2011 and April 2012. The investigations included reports of physical abuse, sexual abuse, medical neglect and neglectful supervision. Most were either ruled out or closed as “unable to determine.”
Coleman’s attorney said that his client needs a mental evaluation and is suicidal. Well boo-hoo for her.
She has been charged injury to a child and is being held without bond. The charges could (and should) be upgraded.
Thank you for the tips goes out to Casey, Masshole, Angel M., Cher, Mandi, Susan B., LM and our very own Suzee.
