Aaron Richardson, 66, is being accused of bigamy after marrying his second wife, while still being legally married to his first. He is shocked though, because he doesn’t remember his 2004 nuptials to wife, Arkina Sneed. He is claiming to have no recollection of ever having wed Sneed, despite the fact that he does remember a relationship. Authorities didn’t buy his story, even though he was clearly, very much a charmer, and chose to charge him with bigamy despite his claims.
The entire investigation into his marriages had come about because of Richardson’s domestic violence injunction with Arkina Sneed, whom he said he met after prison but never married. While investigators were looking into said injunction, they came across two marriage licenses and no divorces on record.
His ‘other’ wife, Irene Clark, has since filed for divorce and said that she would have never married the man if she would have known that he was already legally married to another woman. Unfortunately for Richardson, he had two wives, and now has none but has gained some legal issues.
Polygamy is not the answer, especially if you’re not getting double the sex or benefits.
Ann Marie Abdullin, 23, of Salibury, Maryland was arrested TWICE this morning for drinking and driving. The first incident occurred at 1:30am, when she was released to a sober driver who thought it would be a good idea to drop her off at her car.
Three hours after being dropped off at her vehicle and her first DUI, she was pulled over a second time and arrested for a SECOND DUI. This time, her four-year-old daughter was in the car and it was 4:30am. Whether she had continued drinking between the two arrests or was just that intoxicated, is unknown.
Because of the close proximity of the arrests, she had more charges her second time around, which included driving while impaired, driving under the influence, operating a motor vehicle within 12 hours of being arrested for DUI, negligent driving, and “other minor traffic charges.”
This is, by far, one of the most amazing things I have ever read, and I must say how amazing this family truly is. This boy is one of the luckiest kids and this story is, I hope, a reflection of how society is becoming more open minded and comfortable with the idea of homosexuality.
You should most definitely follow this lady if you are interested, I will post all her info below. In the meantime, here is the post that gained her 20,000 followers on Tumblr, overnight, after her very FIRST post:
“Mommy, they are just like me.”
My oldest son is six years old and in love for the first time. He is in love with Blaine from Glee.
For those who don’t know Blaine is a boy…a gay boy, the boyfriend of one of the main characters, Kurt.
This isn’t a ‘he thinks Blaine is really cool’ kind of love. It is a mooning at a picture of Blaine’s face for a half hour followed by a wistful “He’s so pretty” kind of love.
He loves the episode where two boys kiss. My son will call people in from other parts of the house to make sure they don’t miss his ‘favorite part.’ He’s been known to rewind it and watch it over again…and force other to, as well, if he doesn’t think people have been paying enough attention.
This infatuation doesn’t bother me or his father. We live in a very hip-liberal neighborhood, many of our friends are gay, and idea of having a gay son isn’t something that bothers either of us. Our son is going to be who he is, and it is our job to love him. End of story.
He is also six. Six year olds get obsessed with all kinds of things. This might not mean anything at all. We always joke that he’s either gay, or we have the best blackmail material in the history of mankind when he’s a 16 year old straight boy. (Take that naked bath time pictures!)
Then the other day we were traveling across the state listening to the Warblers album (of course), and in the middle of Candles, my son pipes up from the back seat.
“Mommy, Kurt and Blaine are boyfriends.”
“Yes, they are,” I affirm.
“They don’t like kissing girls. They just kiss boys.”
“Mommy, they are just like me.”
“That’s great, baby. You know I love you no matter what?”
“I know…” I could hear him rolling his eyes at me.
When we got home I recapped this conversation to his Dad, and we stood simply looking into each other’s eyes for a moment. Then we smiled.
“So if at 16 he wants to make a big announcement at the dinner table, we can say ‘You told us when you were six. Pass the carrots’ and he’ll be disappointed we stole his big dramatic moment,” my husband says with a laugh and hugs me.
Only time will tell if my son is gay, but if he is I am glad he’s mine. I am glad he has been born into our family. A family full of people who will love and accept him. People who will never want him to change. With parents who will look forward to dancing at his wedding.
And I have to admit, Blaine would be a really cute son-in-law.
A group of 12 men and boys were seen pushing a pony, attached to a trap, into the eight-feet deep lake. Although there was one 21-year-old walker who came across the incident and attempted to help; He was kicked in the head by the terrified animal and knocked unconscious. Authorities are now searching for the thugs that did this.
Apparently, the group of twelve was also seen beating the animal with sticks:
Officers are also investigating reports the yobs used sticks to beat the two-year-old piebald cob pony as it tried desperately to haul itself out of Hawley Lake, near Farnborough, Hampshire, on Saturday afternoon.
Hampshire Police also launched a joint investigation with the RSPCA to find those responsible.
Sophie Wilkinson, of the RSPCA, said: ‘It’s an extremely cruel and shocking thing that these people have done and we have no idea why they did it.
‘It seems a gang of 12 men and boys lined up three ponies and traps and tried to force them into the water – they succeeded with this one.’
Police spokesman Alan Smith added: ‘When the attempt to push a second and third pony into the lake failed, the group of people drove them and their traps away in the direction of Yateley.
‘There were a number of people around at the time including dog walkers and fishermen and we would like to hear from witnesses.’
More Deaths as Another Stage Collapses at Belgian Festival Featuring 30 Seconds To Mars, Foo Fighters
The BBC is now reporting four were killed, details are still emerging as to number of dead and injured.
According to Holland’s Trouw.com, one of the tents where a band was playing was blown down after a storm, resulting in chaos and injuries.
Per Belgian radio station Studio Brussel, ambulances have been in and out of the festival and the remainder of today’s festival has been canceled.
The sudden storm Thursday caused the Chateau Tent, where American band Smith Westerns played, or were about to play, to collapse. The band wrote on Twitter: “Stage collapsed max almost got crushed by the tress, I hope pukkelpop has insurance bc all our [stuff] is broke.”
A brief but fierce storm produced strong winds and large hail which brought down trees, per reports. Additionally, a sound tower beside the main stage came loose.
The annual festival’s lineup this year includes many American bands, including 30 Seconds to Mars, Foo Fighters and Rise Against.
Jared Leto tweeted that “four stages were down” and that it was “still raining” Thursday from the festival. “Be safe,” he added.
Charles Dyer, ex-marine who previously served time in Iraq, is currently on the run from police after being arrested for the rape of a seven-year-old family member. He was supposed to show up to court in Oklahoma on these charges but never showed up and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
The 40-year-old is a member of the Oathkeeper militia movement which vows to uphold the Constitution of the United States ‘against all enemies, foreign and domestic’.
‘I have been pushed to the limits multiple times by law enforcement and the judicial system in an attempt to cause me to take violent action against them.
‘If I do, I know I will be the monster they depict me as.
‘Our judicial system is nothing more than a system of liars and crooks working under the color of the law, where the rich go free and the poor are made to suffer injustice. Something MUST be done to expose it.’
Chritine O’Donnell has a book coming out and chose to discuss the book on Piers Morgan’s show. When he decided to ask the author about some issues that were addressed in her book, she got rather offended and explained that she was uninterested in speaking about those matters. Morgan kept persisting because they were issues that she has addressed, not just in her book, but in previous interviews on other programs.
Here is the video of O’Donnell ending the interview while trying to publicize her book, ‘Troublemaker’:

A babysitter in Florida has been arrested after police pulled her over for being in the back of a pickup truck with an eight-month-old baby strapped into a stroller. The Dodge Ram pick up was driven around on two very busy streets after being loaded with the stroller, baby, and babysitter.
Numerous 911 calls were placed, obviously, and Daytona Beach police quickly approached the odd vehicle and attempted to figure out why there was a baby in the bed of the truck as opposed to inside the vehicle. Keyona Davis, 23, was also in the back of the truck, next to the stroller that was carrying the infant.
The driver of the 1994 truck was identified in an arrest affidavit as “Mr. B. White,” who was cited for reckless driving.
Based on this woman’s photo, I’m shocked that any mother who ask her to babysit their child. Along with that, she has a pretty extensive rap sheet, which includes:
…busts for car theft, cocaine possession, shoplifting, resisting arrest, criminal mischief/property damage, and fleeing law enforcement. While sentenced to 1-1/2 years on the latter two counts, she only spent spent six months in state prison before being released last January. Davis was also arrested last week for misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
Florida is proving to have some pretty careless mothers this year, if you ask me. Sure, none of them have been proven to kill their children, but they sure as hell are good at neglecting them and putting them in dangerous as situations.
Jessica Beagley appeared on the Dr. Phil show to discuss her 7-year-old son’s behavioral issues and how ‘normal’ discipline didn’t work. Beagley and her police officer husband had adopted the boy, along with his twin brother, from Russia because their parents had left them.
Although Mr. and Mrs. Beagley had four children of their own, they thought this was their chance to give these children a better life after being left by their own parents. Unfortunately, it was proving more difficult than they had imagined. One of the boys was misbehaving in school and when asked about it, he chose to lie.
Jessica explained that soap in the mouth, spanking, scolding, all of these methods did not work. They escalated the discipline to include Tabasco in the mouth and freezing cold (naked) showers. The camera crew from the Dr. Phil show recorded all of this and you could even hear the boy screaming in the shower.
The sad part about this story is that the child was simply sword fighting with pencils and moving around a bit in his seat. Most children would simply be told to not do that again or stop when the teacher tells you to stop. He was tortured for about an hour. According to Russian Investigators the twin brothers were found living in a shack in Russia and sleeping on shelves in an armoire, but I’d be willing to be they’d prefer that to this home in Alaska any day.
The United States and Russia have had a history of some difficult adoptions between the two countries. In fact, Russia was contemplating banning all adoptions to the US after a seven-year-old boy was sent back on a flight to Russia all alone, because the adopted parents no longer wanted it because they couldn’t handle the “behavioral issues”.
