Greg Horn, 35, is seen in the video below mercilessly beating his two daughters, 12 and 14-years-old. Not only is he beating them, but he’s using an electric cord (RCA cable that connects the TV to the DVD player), which leaves them with open wounds and visible welts.
If you don’t know what twerking is, here’s a video. But remember, these two young girls “supposedly” got beat for this, so discretion is advised…
Now that you know what twerking is and have seen both videos, the Dayton father has been indicted on charges of child endangering and corporal punishment.
The alleged abuse happened at Horn’s home on Fotip Lane. According to the police report, one of the girls had visible welts on both legs in the thigh area with open wounds. The girls told police the beatings were their punishment for sneaking out of the house. The indictment comes this first week of Child Abuse Awareness Month. ” – ABC22
Clearly there are two different stories as to why the girls were beat, but either way, the father is still in some serious shit. What do you think? Was he right to do this or wrong? Would the consequences be okay for one situation and not the other? Please share your opinion below.
This video is great. There is no way I would be able to hold my tongue if this jerk off was screaming at me like this.
YouTube - After forcing the truck to hit his car because of slamming on his brakes numerous times, the truck hits his car. Minor scratches to his car, the truck needs a new bumper and grill. Road rage much? He purposely forced an accident and gets out of his car and starts doing this. A real motivated Sgt disrespecting a fellow Marine who is in a wheelchair and the driver who is a civilian.At the End of the video you see him place his hands on the trunk, well that is because the MP’s pulled up and arrested him.
Proposition 8 is an issue that I am very much interested in seeing resolved. Being a lesbian myself, with a wedding planned for 6 months from today, I want nothing more than to be able to LEGALLY wed my fiancee on that day. Unfortunately, even though same-sex marriage was legalized in California, it had been overturned on appeal and a final decision is being considered as of now. In fact, the hearings have already begun and a decision is to be expected by the end of June. I am very hopeful that this day will happen and I will truly be marrying the love of my life as opposed to showing a symbol of our affection (at the same cost ha).

The video below is of a young man, Daniel, who was adopted by two gay fathers. This extraordinary kid decided to write a letter to Chief Justice Roberts, after discovering that he, too, adopted two young kids.
The justices will hear arguments Tuesday on Prop. 8′s constitutionality, followed a day later by a hearing on the Defense of Marriage Act, the 1996 law that denied federal benefits to married same-sex couples. Rulings are due by the end of June.
The court said Tuesday that it would release same-day audio recordings of the hearings in both cases, the first time it has done so since last year’s arguments on the federal health care law. It does not allow hearings to be televised.
The Obama administration will take part in both hearings, arguing that laws discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation should be considered suspect because gays and lesbians have been subject to persecution.
Despite recent gains, they are still unable to marry in most states, are unprotected by discrimination laws in many states and lack substantial political power, the Justice Department said.
That argument was disputed Tuesday by Prop. 8′s sponsors, a conservative religious coalition called Protect Marriage.
While “gays and lesbians have been subject to a regrettable history of discrimination,” the prejudice has “waned dramatically in recent years,” the pro-Prop. 8 lawyers wrote.
“Aside from redefining marriage, it is difficult to identify any objective that gays and lesbians in California have not achieved,” the lawyers said, citing the state’s domestic-partner and antidiscrimination laws.
Lower federal courts have ruled Prop. 8 unconstitutional, saying the denial of marriage to gays and lesbians would not benefit opposite-sex couples or the institution of marriage and was ultimately based on moral disapproval of homosexuality. Backers of the measure disagreed.
Marriage was never intended to be “genderless” and was meant, instead, to “channel potentially procreative sexual relationships into enduring, stable unions” to raise children, the Prop. 8 lawyers said.
This seems like a story right out of Breaking Bad (great show). Last month, the Monsignor Kevin Wallin, 61, was arrested for dealing crystal meth, and his colleagues are trying to explain it away by saying he was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Sure, that makes sense; You’re competent enough to run a meth dealing business that earns you over a very large income, but you’re a Catholic Priest, so you must have something psychologically wrong which makes you act in such a sinful way.
Wallin, a now suspended Roman Catholic Priest, was arrested on Federal drug charges for “allegedly” having methamphetamine mailed to him from co-conspirators in California and making more than $300,000 in drugs sales from his apartment in Waterbury during the second half of last year. This man of God also bought a small adult video and sex toy shop in North Haven. The shop was called ‘Land of Oz & Dorothy’s Place,’ and was apparently purchased to launder all the money he was making.
One of his friends discussed Wallin’s own drug use and stated he looked like ’a refugee from a concentration camp’.
This man was previously the pastor at St. Augustine Parish in Bridgeport, CT for nine years until he resigned in June 2011, citing health and personal problems. According to some, he began questioning his faith and they feel that’s what led to his current situation. One of the church workers had said that ‘(h)e had become disillusioned with the bureaucracy of the church.’ This worker and many others had mentioned that the priest had also been having sex with men for quite awhile.
Five men were arrested and are charged with one count of conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of a substance containing methamphetamine and 50 grams of actual methamphetamine. This crime could get them 10 years to life in prison.
Also charged in the case were Kenneth Devries, 52, of Waterbury; Michael Nelson, 40, of Manchester; Chad McCluskey, 43, of San Clemente, California; and Kristen Laschober, 47, of Laguna Niguel, California. Authorities say McCluskey and Laschober were involved in the shipping of methamphetamine to Wallin.
In the video below, you’ll see Stephen Pay “Marijuana Man“, get robbed while recording a video for his YouTube Channel. There’s not really much else to say about this, other than I’m jealous that he’s got more YouTube subscribers than me and all he does is smoke weed.
Kai is a home free hitchhiker that just happened to be in the right place, at the right time. In West Fresno, CA, Kai seems to be a hero who saved the lives of two people, with the use of his hatchet.
While sitting in the passenger seat, Kai begins to realize that 54-year-old Jett Simmons McBride was a large racist (both in size and hatred). At 2pm, Friday, Mr. McBride drove his car into the back of a black electrical worker and pinned him to his utility truck. The whole time, Kai was still in the vehicle.
“I’m Jesus Christ and I can do anything I fucking want to do,” he supposedly told Kai, a hitchhiker he’d picked up, right before slamming into the man.
McBride was still not finished with the man who was pinned, and got out of the vehicle in an attempt to pull him out. During this time, he continued his racist rant of how he was Jesus reborn and was here to remove “ni**ers” from the face of the Earth.”
Tanya Baker was an eye witness at the scene, and she even ran over to stop the man, but was then smothered in a bear hug. This is when Kai realized that he must do something, and jumped into action. McBride was 6’4″ and 290 lbs and Kai, well, he appears much smaller. Luckily though, Kai had a hatchet and ran over to the suspect.
“I fucking ran up behind him with a hatchet. Smash, smash, smash!”
With such a chaotic story, with so much violence, one would think that one or more of these injuries were fatal, but fortunately, that is not the case. The electrical worker was rushed to the hospital and found to have two broken legs. McBride is in police custody, most likely with a very bad headache. And Kai is most likely enjoying his time surfing or being a vigilante; Either way, this was a great interview ha.
UPDATED Monday, March 18th, 2013: Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond have been found delinquent by a judge. Both boys were sentenced to at least one year in juvenile jail, but could be held until the age of 21. Mays received an additional year for distributing nude images of a minor. The boys were told that they may not be in contact with the victim, until 21-years-old, and will both have to register as juvenile sex offenders.
Judge Thomas Lipps told the court that he reviewed the case’s documents and text messages again. He said that many of the things learned during the trial were “profane” and “ugly.”
Lipps said the case showed alcohol “as a particular danger to our teenage youth” before finding the teens “delinquent beyond a reasonable doubt.”
The victim’s mother made a statement after the verdict was read:
“It did not matter what school you went to, what city you lived in, or what sport you’ve played. Human compassion is not taught by a teacher, a coach or a parent. It is a God-given gift instilled in all of us. You displayed not only a lack of this compassion, but a lack of any moral code,” the victim’s mother said.
“Your decisions that night affected countless lives, including those most dear to you,” she continued. “You were your own accuser through the social media that you chose to publish your criminal conduct on. This does not define who my daughter is. She will persevere, grow and move on. I have pity for you both. I hope you fear the Lord, repent for your actions, and pray hard for forgiveness.”
Here is the video that was leaked by Anonymous, in its entirety. I am warning you, it is hard to watch a couple of young guys being so drunk and pathetic as they discuss the rape of a 16-year-old female. The full story of this case is below the video.
Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond are the two young football players from Steubenville, Ohio, that have been arrested and charged for the sexual assault of a fellow high schooler back in August, 2011. Apparently, the young men also took this very inebriated girl to multiple houses, was digitally penetrated and it has even been claimed that the boys urinated on her.
The Anonymous Cell, “Knight Sec”, took it upon themselves to release this shocking video where Michael Colin Nodianos is seen bragging about the fact that this girl was drunk (not dead, as he claims multiple times in the most disgusting lack of empathy or intelligence, for that matter) and that she was raped.
On their website, Local Leaks: The Steubenville Files said that they decided to release this video since ‘a town rife with corruption, cronyism, illegal gambling and fixated upon their star high school football team were prepared to orchestrate a major cover-up in order to sweep the entire affair under the rug.’
The trial is scheduled for February 13th, 2013. Sadly, many people in this town are in support of the young athletes, claiming that the girl made up the story to ruin their reputation. I really hope that after the release of this video, people in Steubenville, Ohio wake up and see that their precious athletes are capable of committing sickening crimes.
Florida is starting off the New Year right by sharing this story of Father of the Year. First, I must say how amazing it is that there are strip club’s/liquor stores. While the two certainly go hand in hand, I never have heard of such a venue. Clearly, 26-year-old Kenneth Rowe hadn’t either and was too excited to wait and find a babysitter. According to the store clerk, Rowe stumbled into the Shark Lounge Liquor store drunk and asked the clerk to watch his 11-month-old son. In the attached building was the Shark Lounge Gentleman’s Club, where the young father decided it would best to leave the kid with an unknown stranger who was working.
Soon after it became clear that Rowe was enjoying himself and not coming back for his child anytime soon, the clerk called the police and explained that the child was hungry and had a rash on its face. I found this part odd, because I would have assumed he could simply call and say some drunk man left him with a baby, but his hunger and rash seemed far more important I suppose. Rowe was arrested for child neglect and the baby boy is now in the custody of the state Department of Children and Families.
Here are two photos of Melissa Wolf from Ohio. On the left, a photo of Wolf from her arrest in July of last year. On the right, her booking photo from yesterday.
The police were acting on a tip they had received and they apparently found ”several propane tanks, some containing anhydrous ammonia, chemicals to manufacture meth and a small amount of marijuana” all at her home when she was arrested.
[UPDATED] Mallory Owens Now Fears For Her Life: Lesbian Brutally Beat By Girlfriend’s Brother On Thanksgiving
UPDATE: Saturday, December 1st, 2012 @ 2:00AM – Mallory Owens has released a statement and is no longer claiming that it was NOT a hate crime. In fact, she believes the entire Hawkins family has manipulated her. Here is her statement:
I am represented by attorney Christine Hernandez. I am supported by my family, friends, several organizations including Equality Alabama and GLAAD as well as numerous other individuals who have offered a multitude of support to myself and my family including all of those that have donated to help me with my medical expenses. For all of you that have supported me, I am very grateful.
The last week has been the most traumatic several days I have ever experienced, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Not just for me, but for my family as well. Fortunately, we are a strong family, and we are sticking together as a family. On Thanksgiving Day, I visited the Hawkins’ home, the family home of my girlfriend Ally Hawkins. As I was leaving, I was brutally attacked by Travis Hawkins Jr., Ally’s brother. I believe that he intended to kill me. I was defenseless against him. This was not the first time Travis Hawkins Jr. attacked me and sent me to the hospital.
Travis Hawkins Jr. has been charged with Assault Second Degree by the District Attorney’s office. Although, I appreciate all the efforts of the hospital and EMS staff, police, all the investigators, and District Attorney Ashley Rich, neither I nor my family agree that Assault Second Degree is the right charge. We are very hopeful and optimistic that as Ms. Rich, her office and the police continue to investigate this crime, that the charges will be upgraded to attempted Murder. I was unconscious when the beating ended. I do not know what stopped him. I do know he has threatened to kill me before, he has attacked me with a metal pipe before, and on Thanksgiving Day he launched an unprovoked attack on me that left me unconscious, hospitalized, suffering horrific head trauma, severe injuries and in need of surgery and additional treatment. Since the attack, Travis Hawkins Jr. has been seen following my family and appearing at locations where they have gathered. He has threatened to finish me off. I believe as long as he is free on bond that my life continues to be in danger. Even beyond the physical harm, I am quite traumatized. I am afraid and I feel that I have been victimized repeatedly by the Hawkins family.
The interview at the Hawkins home was not requested by me, nor was I aware that the media would be at the Hawkins home. I was brought back to the home by Ally Hawkins. I wanted to be in my own apartment. Mr. Hawkins Sr. insisted we give the interview and statements were made. I believe Mr. Hawkins Sr. is very manipulative, I believe he organized the family and orchestrated the media representation to portray himself in a better light. I do not feel safe there. I was very uneasy and nervous while I was there. I was still very disoriented, weak, and intimidated. Mr. Hawkins Sr. has also threatened me with harm based on my relationship with his daughter. Travis Hawkins Sr. threatened me with a metal pipe while I was waiting in the car on a prior occasion. Travis Hawkins Jr. used a metal pipe to assault me on a prior occasion. He and his son pose a very real threat. I will not go back there.
It will be a very long time before I feel safe again. This sort of attack whether it is proven to be a hate crime or a crime derived from one man’s hate of another human being should not happen to anyone in this country. No one should have to endure an attack the way that I did. Neither should a mother have to see her daughter in the state that my mom had to see me.
During this investigation, many statements were made to the media, some were premature and misguided. All of us involved have been at the center of a huge media storm. At this time, we want to let the investigation continue and we need to heal. Ally Hawkins has continued to release statements and make arbitrary facebook posts and she has even offered a motive for her brother’s actions. Please know that Ally Hawkins is NOT SPEAKING for me, she is NOT representing me in the media in any way. Her statements and public posts on facebook or any other form of social media are NOT representative of my opinions, beliefs or words.
I am fortunate that my family’s love for me is unconditional. I fell in love with a girl. My family loves, accepts and supports me. They have shown nothing but love and acceptance throughout my attack, my time in the hospital, and the investigation of this brutal attack, they have been there for me, loving me and supporting me. I want to thank and publicly show my appreciation for my mom, my brother and sister, my Uncle Ricky, Linda, my grandma. Besides the countless individuals who have offered their support financially and in words of kindness, I also want to thank organizations like Equality Alabama and GLAAD for offering their direct support to me and my family, as well as working to create a culture in Alabama where people aren’t attacked for being who they are and loving who they love. Thank you to all those who have prayed, supported and advocated for myself and my family. For those of you who pray, we ask you to continue to pray for us as we heal.
UPDATE: Wednesday November 28th, 2012 @ 10:30 AM – This story is very confusing. Apparently, Mallory Owens and her fiancé Ally (Alex) Hawkins, do not believe it is a hate crime. They have told news sources that they know why he did what he did, and it would come out eventually. According to Ally Hawkins, it’s too embarrassing to share, but is bound to come out at Travis Hawkins’ court hearing on December 10th, 2012. In fact, Mallory Owens is spending her time recovering at the home where she was allegedly (pretty clear she was) beaten. I will do my best to keep everyone updated as I hear more.
UPDATE: Tuesday, November 27th, 2012 – Mallory and Alex “Ally” are actually engaged. I’ve done a bit of research and they seemed to be very happy about their relationship and had no discrepancies with sharing how they felt with the world. At the bottom of this page is a very sweet photo of the two of them, along with some words they shared with one another. Please wish the best for Mallory Owens, who is still in the hospital. And who knows, maybe one day these two will actually be able to get married
The other day, I saw a photo being shared like crazy all over FaceBook. I wanted to get more information before relaying it, but I am shocked that something like this could happen to a beautiful young lady who was trying to be optimistic about her relationship and the family on whom she was involved with.
Mallory Owens went to Thanksgiving dinner at her girlfriend, Alex Hawkins’, place in Mobile, Alabama. The brother of Alex, Travis Hawkins, did not approve of the relationship that his sister and Mallory shared, and took it upon himself to punish who he felt was responsible, Miss Owens. After dinner, he approached Mallory and began beating her with his fists. Sadly, some people assumed this may be the outcome, including the victim’s mother.
‘He tried to kill her. He’s lucky he didn’t kill her. She’s lucky to be alive. I didn’t recognize her when I got here. It’s hard to look at her like that.’ – Kristi Taylor, Owens mother.
While this crime is horrific in itself, Travis Hawkins will not be charged with a hate crime. Alabama law doesn’t include sexual orientation among bias offenses, according to the Anti-Defamation League. I was appalled to hear this. Here we are fighting for the right to marry the ones we love, and yet, Alabama and 26 other states are also without hate crime laws that protect the LGBT community.
Mallory Owens has unfortunately already had to deal with abuse at the hands of Travis Hawkins. Earlier this year, he hit Owens over the head with a pipe wrench. Although she was injured, no charges were filed, and I can only assume she was hoping that they could work through that incident and move towards acceptance. Optimism was apparently not such a good idea with this family.
‘I did not want her to go, I begged her not to go, knowing how the family felt about her. But she said, “They’re trying to be nice.”
Shortly after being charged with second-degree assault, the assailant was bonded out. Hawkins also called Owens’ sister on Friday, proving that the charges had no effect on him once so ever.
Miss Owens’ sister Avery Godwin told AL.com that Hawkins called her on Friday to say ‘that he would finish what he started last night with Mallory.’
The fact that this kid has assaulted a female twice, the second time being much more severe, and stated that he wasn’t finished means that the second-degree assault charge is absolutely absurd. How is this not attempted murder?! And how do states not have hate crime laws that include the LGBT community?! If someone is hurting you simply because they dislike something about you, that is a hate crime. Simple. A young girl was BRUTALLY beaten at her girlfriend’s home on Thanksgiving day because she was dating the guy’s sister. This kid, not man, is a complete moron with no compassion. I’m not shocked unfortunately, due to his families history.
Last year, Hawkins was hospitalized after he was allegedly shot in the chest by his father, Travis Hawkins Sr.
