Rep. James Fagan (D) - Vows He’ll Rip Child Rape Victims Apart On The Stand. SEE VIDEO HERE





Washington D.C. (The Weekly Vice) -- Massachusetts Democrat Rep. James Fagan has set off a firestorm of criticism after vowing to "rip apart" and "destroy" children who are victims of rape.

The shocking rant came when Rep. James Fagan (D) went to the House floor to oppose Jessica's law, a measure that would set mandatory sentences for child rapists. A measure Fagan condemned as "sentences of those draconian proportions".

Rep. Fagan, who also opposed Melanie's law and is a critic of naming a law in honor of a child victim, unleashed the tirade of opposition during a House debate on the matter last month.

In making his point about why minimum sentence standards in child rape cases should not be passed into law, Fagan said the following:

"Let me tell you why it's so wrong. It's so wrong because in these situations... that 6-year-old is going to sit in front of me, or somebody far worse than me... and I'm going to rip them apart. I'm going to to make sure that the rest of their life is ruined. That when they're 8 years old they throw up; when they're 12 years old, they won't sleep. When they're 19 years old they'll have nightmares and they'll never have a relationship with anybody. And that's not because I'm a nice guy. That's because when you're in court and you're defending somebody's liberty, and you're facing a mandatory sentence of those draconian proportions, you have to do every single thing you can do on behalf of your client."

Mark Lunsford, the father of Jessica (by which Jessica's Law was named for) had a few words in response to Fagan's comments.

"Why doesn't he figure out a way to defend that child and put these kind of people away instead of trying to figure ways for defense attorneys to get around Jessica's Law," Lunsford said. "These are very serious crimes that nobody wants to take serious. What about the rights of these children?"

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Well readers, I apologize for being a few days behind the curve on this one, but I wanted to give Fagan a couple of days to scrape together an explanation for his comments since this video emerged. He hasn't. I'm sure it will only come after the growing surge of outrage forces him out of the dark hole his head is firmly planted in.

We have a little news flash for Rep. Fagan and we aren't going to tap dance around the issue with it.

After a child has been raped, many of them are already throwing up and having nightmares - that is if they haven't been murdered as many of them like Jessica herself was, you jackass.

Lawmakers are sent to congress to enact laws, not worry about how hard a defense attorney's job might be. Ooops, speaking of which, it comes as no surprise that Rep. Fagan is also currently a criminal defense attorney in Taunton, Massachusetts. Nice conflict of interest.

With sexual abuse of children out of control and bleeding heart judges throwing the perps back out on the street quicker than we can get them prosecuted, the last thing we need is Democrat Fagan ranting about what he'd personally aspire to do to a 6 year old child who's been raped and thrown away like a rag doll.

While we understand that a defense attorney's job may require them to challenge a victim's testimony, it's absolutely asinine to assert that a law shouldn't be passed just because a lawyer might have to vigorously defend their client. Let me be clear. ALL defendants should be vigorously defended by their attorney Mr. Fagan.

Massachusetts residents must be so proud of this maniacal, child predator pampering dimwit. Something tells us you'll just keep right on voting him into office. It's sad, to say the least.

Leobardo Guadelupe Reyes - Tough Guy Arrested On Accusations Of Abusing 5 Month Old Daughter, Causing Multiple Skull Fractures


Tracy, California (The Weekly Vice) -- Leobardo Reyes is a tough man. So tough, he'll put your 5 month old child in the hospital if he/she crosses him. Unfortunately for him though, he'll be taking a break from his baby abusing ways. Compliments of the Tracy Police Department.

Leobardo Guadelupe Reyes, a 23 year old California man has been arrested on suspicion of felony child endangerment.

According to police, the parents brought their injured five-month old daughter to Sutter Tracy Medical Center, where she was examined. Doctors quickly realized the severity of the child's injuries and immediately arranged to have the child flown to Children's Hospital in Oakland where doctors found cranial fractures in three different places.

After interviewing both parents, the hospital alerted police. After police interviewed the parents, they placed Reyes under arrest. Police did not arrest the child's mother but did take the child into protective custody.

Police believe Reyes repeatedly shook his daughter with great force, fracturing the child's skull multiple times.

City spokesperson Matt Robinson announced that the child's condition has been reported as 'serious'.

Reyes was booked into the San Joaquin County jail where he remains at this hour on a $500,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court in Manteca on Tuesday, according to the jail intake report.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

The term 'shaken baby' has become far too overused in cases like this. I'm sorry folks, but there's a great difference between a small shake to get a child's attention vs. what happened here. Both of course are harmful and wrong, but the two shouldn't be confused.

What this bastard allegedly here can't be classified as 'shaken baby' in any way shape or form. Children this age have soft matter in the skull tissue which makes it a bit more pliable than an adult skull - which is usually more brittle. I think nature provides this for protection during birth and the inevitable bumps and bruises children cause themselves during their first year.

But an asshole like Reyes - who should be sterilized, would HAVE to clobber this child extremely hard to cause a fracture. The fact that the child had THREE of them tells me he might have been going for more until the mother stopped him.

I would imagine that if it weren't for her, we'd be posting a "murdered baby" story instead of a child abuse story. All I can say is this. If Reyes in fact caused this child's injuries, police had better be charging him with a lot more than child endangerment charges.

Child abuse, battery and even attempted murder had better be on the short list of additional charges before the investigation is completed.

Hooters Girls Lather Up For A Good Cause - Host Free Car Wash For Breast Cancer Awareness And Research






Jacksonville, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- This weekend, Hooters (and those insatiable Hooters girls) hosted a car wash for breast cancer research and awareness. Lather up!

You may know that Hooters has great chicken wings. You may also know that Hooters brings them to you with via a perky blond/brunette clad in a tiny orange outfit that makes even the most ardent non-tipper pony up.

What you may not know, however, is that Hooters has developed an long, consistent history of supporting breast cancer research and early detection awareness.

Let me be clear. We aren't referring to one or two little publicity stunts, aimed at simply putting a happy face on a restaurant chain that has faced it's share of controversies over it's theme. The restaurant chain has invested real time and major dollars towards increasing awareness and funding research towards the breast cancer cause.

Hooters entered the breast cancer fight in large scale after one of their own, Hooters Calender Girl Kelly Jo Dowd, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002. Although Dowd passed away in 1997, the company has continued her cause through hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations, million dollar grant funds and various walk-a-thons and activities like this weekend's car wash.

Saturday's car wash was free, although donations were encouraged, with the proceeds going to the Kelly Jo. Down Breast Cancer Research Fund.

We'd like to thank the girls who donated their time to the event and wish them MANY happy returns. Great work girls!

Peter Macdonald - Arrested On Possession Of Child Porn After Techs Discover Child Porn Image Used As Background Image On Laptop


Lindenhurst, IL. (ThaLunatic Daily) -- Dumb: You ship your computer off to a computer repair facility loaded up with child porn. Dumber: You use a child porn image of a naked boy as your screen saver, making absolutely SURE the techs (and police) learn all about your sick fetish.

Peter Macdonald, a 57 year old Lindenhurst, Illinois man has been arrested and charged with possession of child pornography, after a Kansas technology firm discovers illicit child pornography images on his computer.

According to police, Macdonald sent his laptop computer to ResQ Systems, a computer repair facility in Olathe, Kansas, to have a hard drive replaced on his computer.

When technicians were unable to load up the computer, they contacted Macdonald for the user name and password, according to Lou Archbold of the Lake County attorney's office.

When technicians succeeded in starting up the computer, they discovered a pornographic image of a young boy as the desktop background of the laptop. Technicians also located several files they suspected contained child pornography, said Archbold. The company then contacted police.

Olathe police sent the computer to the FBI for further analysis, who then contacted Lake County Police.

Police arrested Macdonald at his home. He was later released on a $10,000 bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

It's great to know that shriveled penis pedophiles like Macdonald give police an easy catch now and then. Unfortunately, a bleeding heart judge will likely let Macdonald off the hook with minimal jail time - and he'll just learn to cover his tracks better next time. Until then, we sincerely hope the boys in county lockup teach Macdonald the jail house meaning of the word 'hard drive'.

Gerald Michael King - Police Arrest Repeat Sex Offender At His Mommy’s House, Following Year Long Internet Child Pornography Sting


Colorado Springs, Colorado (The Weekly Vice) -- Well here's one more case for the bleeding heart judges who pamper sexual predators with cushy short term jail sentences. Meet Gerald King. This limp biscuit pedophile used a computer at his Mommy's house to store thousands of child pornography images that had been distributed using library computers.

Gerald Michael King, a registered sex offender in Colorado Springs, Colorado has been arrested and charged with felony sexual exploitation of children, following a year long investigation by the Colorado Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.

According to police, King used library computers and email accounts to access and then distributed the material in an effort to conceal his identity. Police first became aware of the alleged activity after following up on a tip regarding the distribution of the illicit material.

"In fact, King h as been distributing thousands of child pornography photos," said Lt. Skip Arms with the Colorado Springs Police Department.

Agents arrested King at his Mommy's house on Wednesday. They also stated that additional arrests could be forthcoming since King was sharing the images with others.

Unsurprising to us at the Vice, King was arrested at a home that was right next to a ...... wait for it..... wait for it. Yes, you know it - a child day care center.

Police believe that some of the images King distributed were children from the Colorado Springs area, although they are not yet sure how King came into possession of them.

King was booked into the El Paso County Justice Center.

The Weekly Vice Reaction:

Well how do you like that Mr. dimwitted, Preparation H. embalmed, bleeding heart judge? You let them go and they set up shop using Mommy's computer - so if cops trace the images, they go right to her i.p. address.

Nice work to the Colorado ICAC for scraping this pond scum off Mommy's driveway and returning him to jail, where he belongs.

Six DumbassTeens Go On Two Hour Crime Romp Inspired By ‘Grand Theft Auto’ The Popular Video Game




New Hyde Park, N.Y. (The Weekly Vice) -- Six New York teens have been arrested and charged with robbery, following two hour crime spree they admit was intended to emulate the video game 'Grand Theft Auto'.

According to Nassau County Police, three teens began the rampage by mugging a man in a parking lot near New Hyde Park at about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday night. The teens were then joined by three more teens and continued the crime spree for approximately two hours.

The teens, armed with a bat, crowbar and broomstick smashed their way down a Garden City street, robbing one motorist and vandalizing a van while the driver was inside.

After fleeing, the suspects broke into sheds and storage units in the area in their hunt for makeshift weapons.

The teens then formed a roadblock, forcing a female motorist to stop. Police say the teens intended to carjack her BMW. "They surrounded her car. They tried to get in. She was scared for her life," saidDet. Lt. Raymond Cote. "They stole her cigarettes, and she sped off and called 911," he added.

The smash-and-grab robberies came to an end when police responded to the emergency call and arrested all six youths. When asked why the teens committed the offenses, the teens admitted that they were bored and decided to act out the role of a Grand Theft Auto character.

Police arrested Brandon Cruz, 15, Gurnoor Singh, 14, Samuel Philip, 16, Jaspreet Singh, 17, Dylan Laird, 17, and Stephen Attard, 18.

All teens were charged with robbery except for Jaspreet Singh, who was charged with possession of stolen property.

Police did not release photos of the 3 youngest offenders because of their age.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

This just in. Grand Theft Auto makers consider spin-off game, Grand Theft Jail Time. Six orders were immediately placed.

Seriously though, what the hell is a 14 year old doing, romping the streets all night anyway? Do they make a game called Grand Theft Ass-Whoopin' for parents?

Christpher Taylor - Man Accused Of Using A Stun Gun To Coerce Woman Into Having Sex


Grand Junction, Colorado (The Weekly Vice) -- Christopher Morgan Taylor, a 30 year old Grand Junction, Colorado man was arrested on suspicion of using a stun gun to coerce his girlfriend into having sex.

According to the arrest affidavit, Taylor allegedly turned on a stun gun three times after his girlfriend refused to have sex with him early Tuesday. The woman and Taylor had spent Monday 'making out' and were in bed when the alleged incidents took place.

The woman told police that Taylor turned on the Taser and said to her, "I don't normally do this to anybody, but..."

The woman also stated that she told Taylor to turn the Taser off because it was "freaking her out". When Taylor continued to use the Taser a third time, she left his apartment.

"Officers with the Grand Junction Police Department located a stun gun on Taylor’s bedroom nightstand after Taylor gave officers permission to search the house,'" the arrest affidavit said.

The woman told police that she and Taylor had been seeing each other for nine months prior to the incident and usually stayed at his apartment two or three days per week.

Taylor is now being held on suspicion felony charges including first-degree sexual assault and unlawful use of a stun gun. He was booked into the Mesa County Jail on a $60,000 bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:


Now if Taylor had gone out to the kitchen and returned with an electric mixer, see, the whole thing would have been funny instead of being "freaky".

He might have even had half a shot. Perhaps his jail house buddies can show him the ropes now.

Gina M. Loftis - Anderson Detention Center Officer Arrested On Charges Of Having Sex With Inmate. Terminated From Sheriff’s Department


Anderson, South Carolina (The Weekly Vice) -- Gina M. Loftis, a 34 year old Anderson County Detention officer has been arrested and charged with sexual misconduct with an inmate.

According to the arrest warrant, Loftis, who resides in Easley S.C. engaged in sexual intercourse with an inmate at the facility on June 7th. Investigators say Loftis was on duty at the time. The inmate was an Anderson County Detention Center trustee at the jail, according to the warrant.

Authorities obtained a written statement from Loftis admitting to the offense, according to investigators.

In addition to the sex related charge, Loftis was terminated from her position on Tuesday by the Anderson County Sheriff's office.

Following her arrest, she was booked into the very same detention center she worked at as an officer - the Anderson County Detention Center. She was later released after posting a $10,000 bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Under the sea. Under the sea..... Wait, this ain't the little mermaid. We can't figure out why Loftis isn't clad with fins and performing in a stage production of The Little Mermaid instead of tempting fate at jail.

Either way, this makes the 3rd such instance within a month involving someone who works at a jail having sexual contact with an inmate. Two instances happened with officers, one instance involved a teacher at a juvenile detention center.

What we'd like to know is this. How good is jail security anyway, when full blown intercourse seems to be a regular event now?

This is not one of our more serious cases, but it's an amusing one. At least now perhaps Gina can look into that Little Mermaid role we seem to think she'd be far better at. A badge and handcuffs weren't such a bad thought either though.

Miama Beach Police Bust “Rolling Whore House” During City-Wide Prostitution Crackdown.



Miami Beach, Floria - (The Weekly Vice) -- The wheels on the bus went round and round - all over town. That is until Miami Beach cops brought a $200,000 'rolling whore house' to a screeching halt.

Undercover officers were all too happy to investigate, when a sleek, customized limo-bus rolled up next to them with three women beckoning them inside. For $40 the girls promised the detectives a party with all-you-could-drink fun.

Once officers climbed aboard the glossy-black palace of pleasure, the girls went to work offering a menu of sexual services. "They were offering everything from oral sex to sex itself," said Miami Beach Det. Juan Sanchez.

The women performed lap dances, stripped and then invited the officers to a private section towards the back of the bus, for a little VIP treatment. $100 bought oral sex, but for $125 the girls promised the men that they'd "Get their money's worth".

At about 3:15 a.m. Sunday morning, officers finally identified themselves and effected an arrest. Inside the bus, police found drugs, thousands of dollars in cash and a firearm.

Police said the operation was apparently lucrative. An undercover officer said in court that he saw money everywhere -- on the floor, in G-strings and on the register.

"In 19 years, I've never seen this," he said.

The arrests were part of a citywide crackdown on prostitution over the weekend that lead to 78 arrests, the recovery of a missing person and an apprehension that discovered a minor involved in selling sex.

Charges in this, the highest profile bust in the operation, are as follows:

Christine Morteh, 29, The Madam and reported owner of the bus - is charged with offering to commit prostitution, violating a public dance hall, transportation for purposes of prostitution and conducting business without a license, according to the arrest report.

Leah Redding, 25, is charged with offering to commit prostitution, violation of dance hall ordinance.

Kimberly Daniels, 23, is charged with offering to commit prostitution, violation of dance hall ordinance

Princess Thigpen, 24, Doing business without a license, violation of dance hall ordinance.

Leah Harris, 25, Doing business without a license, violation of dance hall ordinance.

Scott Clyde, 41, is charged with transportation for the purpose of prostitution, possession of a controlled substance, deriving support from the proceeds of prostitution, and violation of dance hall ordinance.

Adrienne LaFlamme - 60 Year Old Teacher Arrested After Repeatedly Having Sex With Minors


Palm Bay, Fla. (The Weekly Vice) -- Adrienne LaFlamme, a 60 year old science teacher at the Brevard County Juvenile Detention Center in Sharpes, Florida has been arrested and charged with 15 counts of having unlawful sex with a minors.

Laflamme, a teacher with the Brevard Public School system, taught a 17-year-old student this summer and then began a sexual relationship with the teen a few days after his release from the center. Police say the relationship lasted about 4 weeks.

Investigators also believe that LaFlamme engaged in three-way sex with an additional boy who was 14 years of age.

The mother of the 17 year old victim told investigators that LaFlamme would pick her son up from their home and then take him back to her house to have sex.

Police also say LaFlamme allowed the teen to use her vehicle while she was on vacation. Then, when LaFlamme became aware that she was under investigation, she reported her vehicle stolen. Police also monitored a conversation between LaFlamme and the teen, in which she asked him to lie about their drug use, explaining to him that she could lose her job over it.

"This woman's actions are an absolute disgrace," Palm Bay detective Jasmine Campbell said. "We have reason to believe there are other victims and it's important that they come forward."

Adrienne LaFlamme has been formally charged with 15 counts of having unlawful sex with a minor and one count of filing a false report. She was arrested at her home on Wednesday and is currently being held on a $225,000 bond.

Erin Howard - DUI Mom Granted Furlough To Attend Dead Son’s Funeral, Skips Jail And Heads For Nearest Bar


Erie, Pennsylvania (The Weekly Vice) -- We haven't had a 'Bad Mommy' of the week for the past few weeks. I was feeling guilty at first until Erin Howard saved the day. Her distinct ability to turn tragedy into sheer hopeless stupidity makes up for at least three. See if you agree.

Erin Howard, a 26 year old Corry Pennsylvania woman who was recently charged with manslaughter in the drunken driving death of her son, ignores judge's instructions and heads for the bar.

According to police, Howard became intoxicated on June 14th, loaded her six year old son into a vehicle and then crashed into a creek bank, killing her son.

Investigators say Howard told them that she "celebrated her 26th birthday with Seagram's and root beer and a bowl full of pot". She then loaded her son Samuel Carpenter into the front seat of a car without a seat belt and proceeded to drive.

The ride didn't last long. At about 4 p.m. on Saturday, Howard lost control of the vehicle and crashed, killing her six year old son. Howard, of COURSE, walked away with relatively minor neck and rib injuries.

Following Howard's release from Hamot Medical Center, she was arraigned and charged with involuntary manslaughter, DUI, child endangerment and various other related charges. She was then booked into the Erie County Jail on a $75,000 bond.

That should teach her not to drink and drive, eh? Well, not exactly.

A languishing Howard made an appeal to the judge, requesting a 24 hour furlough from jail, so that she could attend her dead son's funeral. The judge, mistakenly unaware that Erin Howard was going to become our Bad Mother of the week, granted the leave. She was released on orders to return to lockup by 3:00 pm on Saturday.

Howard drove to Hamilton Ohio, where her son's funeral was taking place. But instead of complying with the judges orders to attend the funeral and return afterwards, Howard hit the closest suitable bar she could find.

Responding on a tip from the child's father, police found Howard guzzling drinks at a bar called Tailgaters, just six miles down the road from where the funeral took place. What's more, she had blown the 3:00 curfew that the judge set - absconding lockup by nine hours.

Howard now faces felony escape charges in addition to manslaughter, DUI, child endangerment and a treasure trove of related counts.

"Who would have thought that someone who was extended the courtesy of attending a dead child's funeral would not comply with the terms and conditions of the furlough?" said Erie County District Attorney Brad Foulk. "It is absolutely beyond my comprehension," he added.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Well did you soak all of that in? Imagine the layers of sheer dumb twitted stupidity must exist within a woman's mind - to go drinking after killing her son while doing the very same thing.

Could this possibly be a good thing? I think so and I'll explain why.

The media has been all over this story, ranting about how horrible this act was - and I agree, it's pretty astounding. But I see the woman's actions as blessing in disguise.

See, now when she comes before the judge, he'll know who she truly is.

She won't be a woman who simply made a grave mistake that she will pay for with or without jail. No, her attorney won't be so fast to twist this one around quite so easily.

She now comes before the judge as the unrelentingly self centered, self absorbed, insultingly defiant dimwit that she really is. The mask is off. No poor, grieving mother in this picture.

Clarity is a wonderful thing.

As I remember being said in an old 80's song from my favorite decade..... It's Hammer Time!

Julie Pritchett - Middle School Teacher Accused Of Having Sex With At Least 8 Male Students


Birmingham, Alabama (The Weekly Vice) -- Julie Pritchett, a 34 year old former special education teacher at Clay-Chalkville Middle School in Trussville, Alabama has been arrested on multiple sex charges involving two male students.

According to police, Pritchett became sexually involved with at least 8 male high school students ranging in age between 15 years old to 19 years old. The alleged sexual activity occurred between February and April 2008, occurring at various locations including the school campus and the homes of some of the boys.

Police first learned about the alleged sexual abuse on May 2nd, 2008 when a parent of one of the teen boys filed a complaint with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department.

Juie Pritchett has been charged with two counts of 2nd degree sodomy and one count of second-degree sexual abuse.

Angela Leavitt UPDATE - Missing Woman, Kids And Teen On The Run, Return Home




UPDATE:

Milton, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Angela Leavitt, the 28 year old married woman who allegedly went on the run with her 16 year old boyfriend and two small children, following a sex affair with a 16 year old boy, has been found.

We reported the woman, the 16 year old boy and Leavitt's children missing on June 8th, about 5 days after the they went missing.

Now, Leavitt has been arrested by police on a tip regarding her where-abouts.

Leavitt stepped off her plane at the Pensacola Regional Airport as airport police waited for her. She was taken into custody while she and her children waited for their luggage.

The Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office say Angela Leavitt told them she was on her way back to Florida to turn herself in to authorities. [which we believe is true].

The teen boy that was involved called police from Pensacola after returning from Texas on a Greyhound bus a few days earlier.

The Santa Rosa Sheriff's Dept. patting themselves on the back recently during a press release update on the case.
"Our investigators did a great job on the case," says Marc Ward with the Santa Rosa County Sheriff's Office.

Danny Vice would remind the police that they had no clue where this woman and the kids were until someone called them about the flight. They had no idea where their ass was in this case until the teen called them from the bus station. We also remind the police that both the woman and teen were headed back to Florida, obviously in an effort to get things worked out with authorities.

Don't break your arm patting yourself on the back, Marc Ward. We cannot stand it when police take credit for something that was handed to them by someone else. It's pathetic.


Either way, Leavitt has now been released from jail on a $10,000 bond.

She will be monitored, using a GPS tracking device and has been ordered to not contact the teen boy involved in the case.

PREVIOUS REPORT BELOW:

Milton, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Angela Leavitt, a 28 year old Milton Florida resident is presumed to be on the run with a 16 year old boy she is believed to have been having a sexual relationship with. Worse yet, Leavitt's two children turned up missing on the same day and are presumed to have been taken, as Leavitt and her young lover disappeared.

The Santa Rosa Sheriff's department received a complaint on May 27th alleging that Angela Leavitt, who is married, was having a sexual relationship with a 16 year old boy she worked with at a Whataburger restaurant.

Investigators assigned to the case intercepted text messages between Leavitt and the minor boy that was sexual in nature. According to police, Leavitt expressed that she wanted to have the teens baby.

While the full extent of the relationship is still not clear, police have determined that Leavitt had sex with the boy on at least three separate occasions. On one occasion, Leavitt picked up the boy, drove him to her home and then had sex with him.

According to police, Leavitt was aware that police were considering her a suspect. Authorities conducted interviews with both Leavitt and the minor. When police obtained a warrant for Leavett's arrest, they discovered her and her children missing.

The 16 year old boy disappeared on June 3rd, the same date that Leavitt is believed to have fled. The minor was last seen when he had been dropped off at the Leavitt home that night.

Police have stated that the 16 year old boy is not a kidnapping victim and likely fled with Leavitt willingly. Police and the suspects husband believe the two fled in a pewter gray 2005 Dodge Durango.

The suspect's husband, Greg Leavitt conducted a press announcement, pleading for his wife to bring the couple's two children (pictured above) home. Although he said he "knew something" about the 16-year-old and his wife, he stated that he had no indication that Angela had intended to leave town. Both Greg Leavitt and the boy's parents have been said to be cooperative with police in the case.

Note to Angela - We know the mainstream press has spun this story pretty radically. We know there are some other important details being left out of the reporting thus far. We have not reported them yet, because they are unconfirmed details. Please feel free to email me if you would like to have a say in this report. Thank you for returning with the kids.

Angela Honeycutt / Lynne Long - Two Mothers Arrested Following Sex Romp With Multiple Teen Boys



Lower Makefield, Pa. (The Weekly Vice) -- Angela Honeycutt, a 38 year old Pennsylvania mother has been arrested and charged with multiple sex charges involving several under-aged boys who were attending a teen-aged sleepover.

According to police, Honeycutt engaged in sexual intercourse with a 15-year-old boy during an April 14th sleepover that she attended at the home of friend 45 year old Lynne Long.

In addition to having sex with the 15-year-old teen, police also say Honeycutt sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy, exposed her breasts to all boys attending the sleepover, kissed several boys and then took a shower with a teen boy, where she allegedly fondled him.

Police also arrested Lynne Long who investigators allege was present during the sexual activities and even encourage the boys to listen-in while Honeycutt had sexual intercourse with the a teen, according to Kenneth Coluzzi of the Lower Makefield Township Police Department.

According to court documents, Long's son hosted the sleepover for several of his male friends. Honeycutt began the nights festivities by stripping for the boys, danced suggestively and engaged in lewd and lascivious conversations with them.

Police became aware of the incident when one of the teenagers told his parents - although Long had told the boys not to tell anyone about the alleged behavior.

Honeycutt has been charged with statutory sexual assault, unlawful contact with a minor, indecent assault and corruption of minors.

Long was charged with endangering the welfare of children and corruption of minors, according to police.

Both women were arrested on Wednesday and were released after posting bail.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

In this story, the main focus and majority of the charges were filed against Honeycutt. But let's add another element to the story which shows you the depth of hollowness that exists in Lynne Long's soul.

How do you let your adult buddy sexually molest your son and/or son's friends for hours and then call it entertainment?

Since Honeycutt was also reportedly a babysitter for Long's younger children, this almost reminds me of the sex communes that cropped up during the late 60's, early 70's where mothers had sex with their children as a means to graduate them into manhood.

Between you and me, Honeycutt just looks dimmer than broken light bulb, willing to do anything for a cheap thrill. Long on the other hand has the deviant gaze of a pedophile. It's really surprising she didn't strip down and get involved in the act herself. Something tells me she would have headed in that direction eventually, if she hadn't been stopped.

Either way, I seriously doubt either woman will spend more than 8 months in jail.

William Hunter - Former Oklahoma Teacher Previously Convicted Of Downloading Child Porn Has Been Arrested Again


Tulsa, Oklahoma (The Weekly Vice) -- William Lee Hunter Jr., a 41 year old former teacher at Springdale Elementary School in Tulsa, Oklahoma who was formerly convicted on child pornography charges has been arrested again on felony peeping tom charges.

Hunter, who resigned his teaching position in June 2007 following child pornography charges, has now been accused of using a video camera to record various bathroom activities of children while he was still employed at the school.

According to police, Hunter's activities were discovered when a current teacher at Springdale Elementary School attempted to utilize a video camera that had a tape inside. When the teacher checked the contents of the tape, she discovered that it had been used by Hunter to record unaware victims while they used the school restroom.

The recording, which is about an hour long, also showed hunter setting the camera up inside a vent that lead to the bathroom.

Police say the recording contained sounds of the various activities inside the restroom, however the video did not clearly show any specific child clearly enough to be identified. The contents of the video were reportedly recorded between August 2005 and June 2007.

On Hunter's prior conviction, he was caught downloading child pornography videos onto a public computer terminal at the Tulsa County Library. Despite his conviction, Hunter did not serve jail time. He was sentenced to four years in jail, however the entire sentence was suspended. Instead, Hunter paid a small fine and a $250 victim compensation assessment.

Starkeisha Brown / Krystal Matthews - Lesbian Lovers Arrested After Police Find 5 Year Old Boy Severely Tortured, Burned, Beaten And Mutilated



Brown's MySpace http://www.myspace.com/gay_dream_girl

Los Angeles, CA (The Weekly Vice) -- Two lesbian lovers repeatedly tortured, beat and mutilated a 5 year old boy - proving once again that severe stupidity, hatred and sheer insanity does not discriminate by age, sex, ethnicity or sexual orientation.

Starkeisha Brown, a 24 year old California mother has been arrested and accused of torturing her 5 year old son. Her lesbian lover, 21 year old Krystal Matthews was also arrested on charges of willful harm or injury to a child.

According to Los Angeles police, the couple beat Brown's son repeatedly. They also burned his genitals and then left the boy to marinate in his own urine. Investigators also believe the couple starved and dehydrated the boy in addition to suspending him from a door handle while they repeatedly beat him.

Police first became suspicious of the women's behavior when Brown and Matthews brought an alternate boy to a Department of Child Services appointment; trying to pass the boy off as Brown's son. As luck would have it, a neighbor found Brown's son abandoned and contacted authorities.

When police arrived to interviewed the abandoned child, they were shocked at the degree of physical abuse the child obviously had endured.

"In my time, I have never seen anybody with these kind of injuries that has lived," said police Chief James McDonnell of the Los Angeles Police Dept. "This kid must have a tremendous will to live to be able to still hang on despite what he's been through."

A physical examination revealed that the boy had been tortured so relentlessly, scar tissue inside his hand had build up to the point where he could no longer open it, according to McDonnell.

Police also stated that the boys teeth were broken and an exposed nerve in his mouth went untreated. Also, the boy appeared to have been punished by being forced to place his hands on a stove burner.

The boy was hospitalized and placed under close supervision. He has been placed in the custody of the state and will likely be placed in foster care, following his hospitalization.

Brown is currently being held without bond, while her girlfriend Matthews has been ordered held on $100,000 bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

In my research of this case, I've found that both women have criminal records and have actively used government resources of aid. I have also been able to determine that there has been previous court action against Brown involving child abuse and/or neglect in the past. I admit I have not acquired these records - and really don't need to. Her son's wounds tell enough.

My bigger point however is that social services has been deeply entrenched in the lives of these rat-hole living, child abusing worms - and yet no agency apparently had a clue about the long term torture this poor child was enduring.

At first we were going to commend authorities for sniffing out this case down at the DCS office - however we now know they had no part in learning anything. It was a concerned citizen that called police who made all the difference.

That's really the lesson here I think. You CANNOT depend on social services to watch out for these kids even when they are heavily involved in the lives of these slimes of society. As long as a child can still fog a mirror, he or she is considered a low priority.

This problem shows the sheer worthlessness and ineffectiveness of social services in even the most severe cases. In the real world, alert neighbors are the only thing that truly makes a difference between life and death for many, many children. DO NOT be afraid to raise hell if you EVER suspect a child may be in danger.

Carlton Anderson - Dimwitted Parents Drank All Night While Toddlers Ate From Garbage Can. Toddlers Found Wandering Highway Alone




Phoenix, Arizona (The Weekly Vice) -- Some parents are too stupid to operate a toaster, let alone raise children. Now multiply that toxic stupidity by four and you'll have the likes of Carlton Anderson. You'll soon see why he is now on our shit list too. It sure has been a banner week for lousy parents.

Carlton Anderson, a 28 year old Phoenix man whose children were found walking aimlessly along the side of an Interstate Highway has been arrested and charged with four counts of felony child abuse.

According to police, 3-year-old twins Justin And Hustin were found wandering along the exit ramp of southbound Interstate 17 in Phoenix, Arizona. A morning commuter who noticed the children called police and stayed with the children until officers arrived on scene.

Court documents reveal that both children were dirty, had soiled diapers and didn't have any shoes on. One of the children reportedly wasn't wearing clothing other than the dirty diaper.

When police located Anderson's apartment, they found two more children aged 1 and 4 years old. No adults were to be found.

Anderson's apartment was dirty. Trash and broken beer bottles had been strung about the premises. There was no food available in the home outside of soda, bacon and a half loaf of bread that had been thrown away. Officers say the children pulled the bread out of the garbage in an apparent attempt to eat something.

So where were these hardworking parents, humm?

Carlton Anderson returned to the apartment the next morning at 8 a.m. to a crowd of police officers and reporters. After a short interview about his where abouts, he was initially arrested on child neglect charges.

Anderson told police he left the kids the night before to pick his wife up at a local bar. When the children's mother refused to leave, Anderson became upset and went drinking with a friend, according to court documents.

A neighbor told police that Anderson had asked her to watch the kids, but she refused because he "was always asking her to watch them". Anderson also admitted to police that the children had left the apartment before, however a neighbor brought them back.

Police did finally locate the mother on Friday and decided not to press charges against her. Can you believe that? We're glad Carlton decided to man-up and take responsibility, but this leaves the mother wide open to re-assume these children. We'll be seeing these two in the news again at some point I'm sure.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

So there you have it. The "parents" are out drinking all night while the kids are dragging spoiled bread out of the garbage as the only means to eat. Nice huh?

Apparently the neighbors of these slugs couldn’t be bothered with these kids either. No one apparently reported any of this behavior to authorities until a motorist on the highway stopped to rescue these deserted kids. Homies at the apartment complex simply brought the wandering kids back to the apartment so the parents could neglect them some more. Quality neighbors, indeed.

There are apartment complexes full of these breeding maggots who live on welfare as a means to drink their life away, while the kids get starved, raped, molested and forgotten.

So the next time you see a "Save The Children" commercial on television, go ahead and donate if you like. Just remember though, there's a lot of children in your own town that seriously need saving too. The Carlton Andersons' of the world will see to that.

Parker picked the victim up from his home, too the boy shopping and then drove him to a hotel, where the two checked in, according to police.

Virginia Johnson - Arrested On Charges Of Raping And Assaulting Teenaged Daughter For Child Porn Material


Akron, Ohio (The Weekly Vice) -- Every day we get visitors who are friends of some of the people we feature, proclaiming their pal's innocence. I KNOW this person, they say. There's no way this person could have done it, they insist.

Well take a look at the 'every day' gal above who could easily pass as Dudley Do-Right's twin sister. Could she be a sexual predator? Nah, just look at her. Seems like a pretty nice lady eh? Read on.

Virginia Johnson, a 38 year old Uniontown, Ohio mother of two has been arrested and charged with rape, permitting child abuse, sexual battery, disseminating material involving a minor and unlawful restraint.

It turns out that Virginia, just like most of the other loathsome perverts we feature every day, had a dark side. We might say she had an evil side, but if she were smiling - you would never know it.

Summit County Sheriff's detectives began an investigation into Johnson's alleged behavior when they received a report claiming that Virginia and her boyfriend, 40 year old Stephen Brothers, were sexually assaulting Virginia's teenage daughter.

Summit County detectives executed a search warrants on the homes of both parties, recovering computers, cameras, hard drives and various recorded media on April 22nd.

Police say Johnson used her daughter to record various illegal sexual acts and then distributed the material over the Internet. Police also stated that the alleged abuse was ongoing, beginning approximately 3 years ago.

Virginia doesn't seem quite so friendly now we're sure - but aren't you wondering where her boyfriend Stephen's mugshot is?

Well there is no mug shot. Six days after investigators started analyzing the material they recovered from the homes of these two slugs, Stephen committed suicide. We suspect he had no problem raping Virginia's daughter, but was too wobbly kneed to take a raping in the jail cell he was evidently headed for.

Luckily police arrested Virginia Johnson before she could follow suit on the suicide idea.

After her arraignment in Barberton Municipal Court today, Johnson was promptly returned to her jail cell, where she is being held on a $100,000 bond. If she makes bail, we'd be curious to see if she has the fortitude to hang in there a little longer. Perhaps her future cell mates could put together a little production of their own.

Scott F. Lurkin - Suspected Repeat Child Molester Used Pool Parties To Attract His Victims


Palm Bay, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Scott F. Lurkin, a 46 year old Palm Bay, Florida resident has been arrested and booked into the Brevard County Jail on suspicion of molesting multiple girls during pool parties at his home.

Lurkin now faces four counts of lewd and lascivious conduct and one count of sexual battery and has been jailed without bond.

According to Palm Bay Police, Lurkin allegedly molested girls who's ages range between 9 and 13 years old.

"Detectives with the Special Victims Unit first received information in May involving allegations that Lurken had sexually battered a 9-year-old female. The incident is believed to have occurred during October, 2007," stated a Palm Bay Police press release. "Further investigation revealed Lurken performed oral sex on the child in his home," it added.

In a separate case occurring between July and August 2007, Lurken kissed an 11-year-old girl on the lips "with his eyes closed" in a lewd manner while rubbing her back and stomach, according to the victim's statement.

On June 1st of this year, yet another victim, aged 13, came forward with similar allegations as the first two victims.

"We have reason to be very concerned that there are many other victims out there who have not yet come forward," said Det. Greg Guillette of the Special Victims Unit. "Many times these victims are afraid to come forward, but it's important in order to protect other," he added.

Lurken has been booked into the Brevard County Jail and is currently being held without bond.

Stephanie Ragusa - The Naughty Teacher’s Handwritten Letter To Nick Bollea - Everybody Get Excited!




UPDATE:

Tampa, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- I've had a few requests for the note Stephanie Ragusa (who was back in court today for a handwriting sample) wrote to Hulk Hogan's whiney jailbird kid, Nick Bollea. Click on the image to enlarge it.

Ragusa sent the note above from her residence in the Hillsborough County Jail to Nick Bollea about a week ago. The note was intercepted by the Pinellas Deputies and sent back initially. We understand the letter was finally delivered to Bollea once it was determined that the communication was legal.

So here you have it, the much talked about, handwritten note from Ms. Ragusa. Enjoy.

For background purposes, below is the last article write-up we submitted on Ragusa's strange case.

You can also read it here

We don't know each other, but we are both in similar situations with the media and a high degree of public scrutiny. If you are anything like me, I'm sure you receive tons of "fan mail" each day from total strangers who say pretty much anything you can think of. I just want you to know that you are not alone.

And for what it is worth, I can sympathize with the dynamics of your case, esp. in light of the public. It's not us, Nick, but something "off" with society, that our situations garner more attention and print than the President, the election, or even an earthquake killing thousands.

Nothing prepares you for nor prevents it; sensationalism. I have only been here 1 month in administrative confinement, due entirely to my case's "high profile status." I've honestly, not been following your case, except in hearing that our names are mentioned frequently on the news.

Keep your head up and never lose sight of the light at the end of the tunnel. You have more people support and pulling for you than you will ever know. I believe the character of an individual is measured over the long haul. And I have no doubt that you will rise above your current surroundings having experienced a personal inner growth known only to yourself in those many hours of isolation.

You remain in my prayers,

Stephanie Ragusa



Previous Report:

Tampa, FL (The Weekly Vice) -- Arrested once, arrested twice....... and as if the train hasn't been wrecked enough, Stephanie Ragusa tops even herself for yet a third arrest on child sex charges.

Stephanie Ragusa, a 28 year old math teacher from Martinez Middle School was originally arrested on 5 counts of lewd and lascivious battery of a minor from a sexual relationship she had with a 15 year old boy when she was a teacher at Davidson Middle School.

Ragusa was then arrested again in mid April and charged with more charges involving a second boy who was 15 (some sources say 14). Police say Ragusa had sexual contact with the second boy at least 20 times resulting in 2 counts of having unlawful sexual activity with a minor in addition to the previous 5 charges from her arrest in March.

Now Stephanie Ragusa has been arrested a 3rd time. While police have been slow to comment on the details of Ragusa's re-arrest, they have confirmed that the teacher violated the terms of her bond and proceeded to continue seeing one of the victims she previously had sex with.

Investigators say Ragusa was arrested again today on two new charges, after she was caught in the act of having sex with one of the previous boys again today. Police believe she also had sex with the same student back on April 5th.

“I can assure you that we are doing everything we can do right now to make sure that she not out at liberty to do this again,” said Lt. Fred Asteasuainzarra of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

Ragusa was smiling, as she usually does for the cameras as police led her away in handcuffs. She was transported back to the Orient Road Jail (Hillsborough County Jail) and re-booked on the new charges.

Tonya Craft - Sheriff Disputes Claims Made By Craft’s Attorney Regarding Multiple Child Molestation Charges

UPDATE May 11, 2010: FOUND NOT GUILTY


Chickamuaga, GA (The Weekly Vice) -- Tonya Henke Craft, a 36 year old kindergarten teacher at Chickamauga Elementary School in Chickamauga, Georgia, has been arrested and charged with four counts of child molestation and one count of aggravated sexual battery against a child.

According to police, Craft engaged in sexual contact with three female students, which included fondling and digital penetration. Police say the alleged incidence occurred between August 10th, 2005 and May 10th, 2007. The alleged sexual contact occurred at Craft's residence during sleepovers, according to Sheriff's Dept. Capt. Scott Jordan.

The mother of one of the victims has stated that she was a friend of Craft at one time.

Craft's attorney is stating that his client adamantly denies the charges and says she was never given the opportunity to explain her side of the story. Craft also states that she was told the charges would not be pursued if Craft passed a polygraph test, according to defense attorney Chris Townley. That test, according to the defense, was never implemented.

Tonya Craft turned herself into the Catoosa County Sheriff's Department on Wednesday, but was later released on a $50,000 bond.

UPDATE:

The Catoosa County Sheriff's Department issued a statement today disputing the claims made by Craft's attorney in regards to allowing the defendant to respond to the allegations and to his claim of the polygraph test.

"I disagree with the information provided yesterday by (Townley) in regards to the handling of this case. It appears statements were made that law enforcement never attempted to interview Ms. Craft and that she agreed to a polygraph test but law enforcement refused to administer this test. I feel it is important to correct statements made to the news media in regards to this case," said Phil Summers of the Catoosa County Sheriff's Dept.

The Sheriff also addressed the issues of the polygraph test claim by stating "Ms. Craft's attorney would not agree for her to take a 'stipulated' polygraph test. Mr. Townley discussed with the District Attorney's Office the possibility of an 'unstipulated' polygraph test which ultimately the District Attorney's Office declined."

Miguel Fuegos-Bautista Drove Drunk And Now His Son Is Paralyzed - Don’t Worry, Social Services To The Rescue!



Omaha, Nebraska (The Weekly Vice) -- A little child suffers at the hand of a neglectful parent once again. Child services was previously involved once again. And now a 2 year old child may be paralyzed for life as a result. Sigh.

Miguel A. Fuegos-Bautista, a 36 year old Omaha, Nebraska resident was arrested and charged with DUI causing serious injury and suspicion of felony child abuse after crashing his car. The accident resulted in paralyzing his 2 year old son.

According to police, Fuegos-Bautista was speeding down the road drunk with his 2 year old son, Selvin, riding along in the front seat. As fate would have it, a slow moving truck proved too much of a an obstacle for the inebriated Fuegos-Bautista. His Toyota Tercel jumped a curb, and crashed into a parking meter and tree.

Little Selvin, who was not properly restrained in a car seat, was thrown into the dash, suffering two broken vertebrae, according to police. Authorities now say little Selvin will likely be paralyzed. The father, of course, was not injured.

And now for the outrage

This however is not the first time little Selvin found himself a victim of someone else's conduct. Selvin was placed in foster care in February of this year after police found him living in deplorable living conditions.

On an unrelated call, police found Selvin in his parent's apartment surrounded by tequila and beer bottles that had been littered about the room - as well as several men who were passed out drunk on the apartment floor. Officers also found cockroaches "varying in size" that had infested the child's home, according to police reports.

Social services removed Selvin from the apartment, but then returned him about two weeks later, according to Todd Landry of the Nebraska Dept. Of Health and Human Services.

The parents either briefly cleaned up their act or put on a good dog and pony show. Whichever the case, the state determined just two weeks later that it was in Selvin's best interest to go back home. But that was then.

Now Selvin is in critical care at the Nebraska Medical Center.

His father, Miguel Fuegos-Bautista was hauled off to jail, where he was ordered held on a $50,000 bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

We're going to withhold our fire on this family for now - for the sake of the mother who is obviously going out of her mind with grief at this point. Piling on at this point would just be pointless, as there has been enough heartache for this mother.

But I do have a bone to pick with Social Services.

A child is now paralyzed because this slipshod excuse for a government agency seriously thought a family was going to be rehabilitated in a mere 2 week period. Are they for real?

Considering the red tape involved in pushing social services paperwork, a mere two week timetable tells me someone didn't even really look at this case. There's just no possible way anything legal like this gets done in two weeks. Anyone who's had any kind of encounter with a government organization of any kind knows that.

Heads seriously need to roll here and if they don't, we'll be seeing more stories of this kind of crap coming out of Omaha soon.

Social workers - get away from the water cooler and open your case files for a change. You won't die if you actually help someone !

Matthew Alan Simon - Man Arrested After Burning Girlfriend’s 8 Month Old Baby Half To Death


Portsmouth, VA (The Weekly Vice) -- Don't worry ladies, this "chunk" of burning love won't be burning your children any time soon.

Matthew Alan Simon, a 19 year old Virginia man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder, felony child abuse and malicious wounding after scalding a child half to death.

According to police, Simon was watching his girlfriend's 8 month old daughter on May 27th when he got the bright idea to drop the kid into what police now believe was blistering hot water.

Simon told police that he ran a bath and then got into the bath with the child. There's no telling what twisted reason he had for doing THAT. Simon told police that when the child was placed in the bath, she began to scream out in pain. When Simon later dried the child off, he found redness with parts of the child's skin peeling.

Simon took the injured child to Portsmouth Naval Hospital, where emergency workers treated the child for burns to her hands, arms, legs and feet - with skin that was peeling away.

After the child's condition stabilized, she was transferred to Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters for follow up care before being released to the child's paternal family.

Just a harmless accident?

Following Simon's arrest, Portsmouth police told reporters that Simon had been charged with Malicious Wounding for an injury the child received the very day before she was burned. Of course!

While police wouldn't release details on the previous charge, the previous charges were elevated from a garden variety abuse charge to Attempted Murder, Felony Child Abuse and Malicious Wounding. And it's about friggen time! Police had to wait until he was released from the looney ward before they could officially charge him.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Alright, well we know Simon's kind well enough, as we feature slithering excrements like him on a daily basis.

But for three nights in a row we've featured stories that are beginning to sound like a broken record. Boy meets girl. Boy abuses girl's child. Girls stays with boy anyway. Kid gets abused some more.

Can any of you lady readers explain to me what kind of insanity pulses through the mind of a female who watches their child endure abuse, but then lets him watch the kid unattended the very next day?

Well alright, lets add one more layer to all of this zaniness to really spice up things up. The child's mother WORKS at the hospital this poor child was taken to after this dope scalded the poor girl. This doesn't make her an all-knowing super-mom, but it does enable her to recognize what an injury is we'd think.

For God's sake, mothers, if a man hits, gropes, burns or beats your child - please kick his lazy, retarded, child abusing ass to the curb. Correction. First kick him hard in the balls and then drag his ass to the curb. The garbage man comes on Wednesdays.

Don Hamby - Charged With Neglect After His Starving Kids Were Found Living In Wal-Mart Parking Lot


Central, S. C. (The Weekly Vice) -- Don Hamby, a 28 year old Six Mile resident has been arrested and charged with two felony counts of child neglect after police found him and his two children living in a Wal-Mart parking lot.

Police first became aware of the situation when they received a report alerting them that a young girl had passed out inside the store. After authorities were contacted, Hamby left the store with his two daughters.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found Don Hamby in the store's back parking lot near his vehicle. They also found his two daughters, aged 7 and 8, sitting out in the parking lot under a tree.

According to police, the two children told police that they had been living in their car for several days. The children also told authorities that they had not eaten for three days except for a few chips the day before.

Central police contacted Victim's Advocate Khristy Crawford, who arrived on scene to assist with the children. While the advocate interviewed the girls, one of the children became sick and passed out again.

The children were then transported to Cannon Memorial Hospital. In addition to malnutrition and dehydration care, the children were also treated for lice infestation. They were later released into the care of social services.

When police questioned Hamby about his behavior, he told police that he had been waiting for his wife to wire him some money from Nevada. When police ran Hamby's driver's license, it was discovered to be suspended.

Hamby has been charged with two counts of felony unlawful neglect of a child by a legal custodian. He was later released from jail on a $20,000 bond.


The Weekly Vice Opinion:

So where is Mom's mugshot? Where are her charges?

Anyway, let's see if we understand this correctly. When wifee wanted to run off to Nevada, the money was there. When Daddy wanted to bond out of jail, the money was there. But when the kids are collapsing from starvation - There's NO Money?

Spay the delinquent mother and neuter the dumb ass father. Since he's driving around on a suspended license and mother is no where to be found while her kids are starving, it would appear the situation is a long time in the making. We could be wrong, but we usually aren't.

There are lots of options for at least getting your kids fed, besides pitching a tent out in a Wal-Mart parking lot. charity services, churches and even a police station might be a start. Hell, go donate plasma if you have to. There simply is no excuse for sitting on your ass while your kids starve.

The sad part about it is, these parents will likely get their kids back and these two girls will again suffer the consequences for being born to jackass parents. God help them.
