School Teacher ‘bound and gagged two dozen children, put roaches on their faces, fed them semen and took their photos’
Mark Berndt, a 61-year-old school teacher has been arrested and fired from Miramonte Elementary School he was employed at for thirty years. Berndt was at his home in Torrance when police decided to go forward and arrest him after seeing the evidence of his abuse to over 20 children.
The district attorney’s office said Berndt has been charged with committing lewd acts with 23 boys and girls ages 7 to 10 between 2008 and 2010.
The photos themselves are rather graphic and included Berndt with his arm around the children or with his hand over their mouths. There are also photos that show the girls with a spoon being held by their mouths as if Berndt was going to have them ingest whatever it was. The suspicion was that it was semen, and this was verified after a spoon in his trash tested positive for semen and matched his DNA. Along with that, some of the children had large Madagascar-like cockroaches on their faces in these photos.
Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy had said that no students had ever come forward before about this abuse. He immediately took action and removed the teacher, once he heard of the situation.
The sheriff’s department said a search warrant served on Berndt’s home led to the discovery of more than 100 similar photographs depicting children.
This piece of shit doesn’t deserve to spend another second on this planet. What he did is so incredibly sick and he took advantage of his position as a teacher. These kids are supposed to be safe while at school, not fearful of the abuse that they may have to endure. Sadly, this man worked for a good 30 years before being caught and who knows how many children were really involved.

Australian backpacker Erin Langworthy, 22, is very lucky to live and tell her miraculous story of survival. While bungee jumping in Zambia, Langworthy’s cord snapped and she plunged into the crocodile-infested water below. After falling, her feet were still bound, which made for the swim out of this dangerous area that much more difficult.
What’s amazing is that she could fall head first, with her feet bound, below the world’s largest waterfall leading to a body of water with quite a lot of crocodiles and still make it out alive. This truly sounds like something that would take place in a fairytale because it’s too unbelievable to be realistic.
Mis Langworthy had said:
‘It went black straight away and I felt like I’d been slapped all over.
‘It was quite scary because a couple of times the rope actually got caught on some rocks or debris.
‘I actually had to swim down and yank the bungee cord out of whatever it was caught on to make it to the surface.’
‘When I was first pulled out of the water they put me on my back and so all the water that I’d inhaled meant that I couldn’t breathe, so I made them roll me onto my side.
‘And that’s when I started coughing out water and blood. I think it’s definitely a miracle that I survived.’
Although this incident happened on New Year’s Eve, Langworthy has stayed in the hospital for the past week to recover from her injuries. There is an investigation into what caused this horrific accident. There have been many bungee jumps from this site and this is a rare incident. Luckily, it wasn’t fatal, given the circumstances.

ALHAMBRA, Calif. — The owner of a Southern California yogurt shop has been charged with attacking an employee, removing her clothes, binding her with tape and locking her in a box.
Los Angeles County prosecutors say Robert Yachen Lee allegedly attacked the woman Wednesday morning after luring her into an upstairs storage room at the Monterey Park shop. The woman blacked out. When she woke up she was naked, except for an adult diaper, bound with tape with a collar around her neck and lying face down in a box that had been placed in a soundproofed storage room.
The woman managed to free herself and call police.
Lee was charged Friday with kidnapping to commit rape and attempted murder. He’s being held on $10 million bail.

I really wish there was more to this story because I am left insanely confused. First of all, why the hell did he put a diaper on her? Was he planning on leaving her in there for awhile and didn’t want her to pee in the box? Because that just seems odd. I mean, kidnapping an employee, stripping them and keeping them as a pet in a box is pretty fucking odd too, but what purpose does the diaper serve?
Also, how was she bound? Because she was obviously able to get out pretty easily. Where were you while she was making this escape Mr. Lee? You kidnap someone and then just leave? I need to know more. I am unsatisfied, disturbed, and very confused.
Regardless, you’re a sick piece of shit and I hope to God that while you’re in jail on that $10 million (holy *%$*@&^$ shit!) bond, that you decide to come clean and answer some of the questions I have asked. And, I hope that you’re ass gets raped so hard that you’re forced to wear an adult diaper. Why? You tell me.
Marco Tulio Flores, 17, confessed to police that he strangled and burned Jaime Galdamez, 27, as a punishment for the sexual abuse that he had been enduring throughout his childhood.
The grisly murder happened on May 23. Flores duct-taped Galdamez’s face and wrists, police said, then used a dog chain to strangle him.
He soaked the victim’s body in charcoal lighter fluid then stole a flat-screen television and two computers, he told prosecutors.
He returned several hours later, leaned in through a window he’d left open and set the 27-year-old’s body on fire before fleeing, police said.
Two families with six children lived in the rooms above Galdamez, and all were at home when the fire started.
The 20-page federal indictment, unsealed with the men’s arrests Thursday, contains accusations of sexual and physical torture lasting five years, acts that U.S. Attorney Beth Phillips called “among the most horrific ever prosecuted” in the Western District of Missouri.
The alleged torturer, Edward “Master Ed” Bagley Sr., 43, of Lebanon, Mo., tattooed the woman to mark her as his slave, convinced her that she was legally “bound” to him and threatened her, prosecutors said. He also is accused of forcing her to work as a stripper.
Bagley tortured the woman for five years, until he induced a heart attack while suffocating and electrically shocking her on Feb. 27, 2009, prosecutors said. She was hospitalized.
Her hospitalization sparked an 18-month investigation that led to the charges.
Those alleged to be customers for the woman’s forced services included Bradley Cook, 31, of the 11500 block of Big Bend Road in Kirkwood; Dennis Henry, 50, of Wheatland, Mo.; Michael Stokes, 62, of Lebanon; and James Noel, 44, of Springfield, Mo., prosecutors said. Henry’s occupation was listed as postmaster general of Nevada, Mo., but that could not immediately be confirmed Thursday evening. Cook, according to state records, is a licensed real estate broker associate.
The indictment alleges that Bagley met the woman when she was 16 and a runaway and persuaded her to move into his trailer with promises of a “great life” and a future as a model and dancer.
She got her own room, furniture and TV, and Bagley began giving her drugs, showing her pornography and sexually abusing her, prosecutors said.
When she turned 18, he persuaded her to sign a ‘sex slave contract,” which he said bound her to him for life, prosecutors claim.
Bagley “beat, whipped, flogged, suffocated, choked, electrocuted, caned, skewered, drowned, mutilated, hung and caged” the girl “to coerce her to become a ‘sex slave,’” the indictment says. It adds that he tied her up and hung her in the air, locked her in a dog cage and used staples, nails and a sewing needle and thread during torture sessions too violent to describe.
In 2005, Bagley began boasting online that the girl was his slave and could be tortured during online sessions or in person, the indictment says.
Henry, Stokes, Noel and Cook gave Bagley cash, cigarettes, computer equipment, sadomasochism videos, coats and meat in exchange for access to the girl, the indictment says.
If she cried out or tried to stop the torture, it only got worse, prosecutors said. Bagley threatened her by claiming to have buried other bodies behind his trailer home and shooting animals that she cared for in front of her, prosecutors said.
Bagley also performed abortions on the girl, the indictment says.
The indictment says Cook, the Kirkwood man, downloaded pictures and videos of the girl being tortured, gave Bagley a computer hard drive containing sadomasochism and torture videos downloaded from the Web, watched the torture live and had sex with the girl.
Court documents allege that Cook has a long history of violent behavior, sadomasochistic conduct and drug abuse and that “he tortured and sexually mutilated at least two other female victims in the past.”
A call to one of Cook’s former addresses was answered by someone who declined to answer questions about Cook and referred a reporter to Cook’s lawyer, but declined to provide a lawyer’s name.
The men could face life in prison.
This is sick and cruel. All off these men better be in prison and suffering the same type of torture that she was, although I’m sure that is impossible. She’s lucky to have survived the nearly fatal attack that ironically saved her life.
