Before anyone says anything about me prejudging gingers, I’d like to remind you that I, myself, am a ginger. Sadly, its little shits like this who choose to go out and be disgusting and particularly evil, that give all of us a bad name. I mean, it is true, we are a little more hard-headed, stubborn, cruel, mischievous and unrelenting, but trying to sexually assault your mother?! What the f*ck is that shit?! With no further a due, the story:
There are numerous things wrong with this story, starting with the fact that Noah Crooks was only 13-years-old. What kind of eighth grader has that gall to not only attempt to molest his OWN mother, but then murder her as well? Gretchen Crooks was killed in the town of Osage, Iowa and could have never predicted this would be how her life came to an end.
The hunting rifle was used to take out something other than game in this household, despite the facts that there were no criminal records of the Crooks family. And who would have seen this coming? I kid at Osage Middle School attempting sexual abuse and following through with murder… against his mother. It’s unfathomable to me, and I can’t even begin to imagine the amount of people who have been crushed by this.
Shelia Aukes, a licensed social worker in Des Moines who works with young people on a variety of mental health issues told the DesMoines Register: ‘The victims in most sex offenses committed by juveniles are siblings, other juveniles or, more rare, other adults.
‘A child or adolescent sexually abusing a parent is completely out of the norm, totally unheard of.’
The incident happened on Saturday and Noah called 911 shortly afterwards. Oddly enough, he seemed emotionless and extremely calm for what had happened.
‘The emotions of the young man, from what I’ve been told, is his demeanour was very calm and kind of stoic. Almost like he was in shock also,’ Deputy Greg Beaver told KTTC.
In Iowa, you must be 14-years-old to be charged as an adult, so this sick kid is being held at North Iowa Juvenile Detention Center in Waterloo and is expected to be tried as a juvenile. They are expecting for the charges to be filed today.
Mrs. Crooks was a nurse at Mercy Medical Center-North Iowa and had aspirations of getting her masters degree. She was a hard-working mother-of-two and always bragged about her children.
On her Facebook page back in 2010, she praised her son, one of two, for his musical talents on the saxophone as well as his accomplishment in being accepted into a University of Iowa camp to learn Chinese.
‘So proud of him!’ she wrote.
She had also recently published an application on her page reading: ‘Click “like” if you love your son!’
This is the first murder in Osage since 1898! This is definitely one way to bring back murder in a murder-less city.

At Dunkerton High School in Iowa, students were forced to hear a homophobic rant by Bradlee Dean, preacher and drummer. Mr. Dean thought it would be a good idea to validate his point that homosexuality was wrong by using Lady Gaga and Sir Elton John as bad examples. Along with telling the children that being gay was a sin and a choice (which to that, I say FUCK YOU), he also explained to the students that they needed to obey their husbands, stay a virgin until marriage and preached about pro-life and the reason it’s the right choice.
And DO NOT tell these children that the average life span for a gay man is 42, implying that being gay literally kills you. How ignorant are you? I mean, I’m well aware that you are, in fact, ignorant, but to spew out lies like this is absolutely ridiculous. If you have enough evidence to support your argument that homosexuality is wrong, don’t use lies to influence these kids.
Mr. Dean is not only the preacher who holds these views, he’s also a drummer in his band, Junkyard Prophet, and the President of the ministry You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International. The organization charges $1,500 per event, which is funny for someone who is all about God and teaching morality to youth; Money shouldn’t be of importance.
Parent Jennifer Littlefield told the LaCrosse Tribune: ‘They told my daughter, the girls, that they were going to have mud on their wedding dresses if they weren’t virgins.’
Her 16-year-old daughter Alivia was distraught when she called her after the event and was one of several to have left in tears.
Appalled parents complained to the school, which has since accepted responsibility. The district authority is trying to recover the fee paid to Junkyard Prophet, who are said to command a rate of $1,500 (£955) per show.
Dean is claiming that no one had an issue with the performance when it had happened, but soon after he got home people were claiming it was anti-gay. Well, I don’t know if the ignorant preacher reviewed the video, but it was very much homophobic. Oh, and did I mention that the civil rights organisation, the Southern Poverty Law Center, listed You Can Ride But You Can Not Hide International as an active anti-gay hate group.
People like Bradlee Dean should not be able to be teaching children the difference of right and wrong because he’s clearly confused himself.

[VIDEO] A Very Well-Spoken, Intelligent And Successful Young Man Pleads His Case As The Child In A Same-Sex Household
Mr. Wahl’s speech immediately brought tears to my eyes. This young man speaks so eloquently and makes it so very obvious that the “sexual orientation of (his) parents has had zero effect on the content of (his) character.” Instead of basing your discriminating views on the testimony of individuals who have no experience dealing with homosexuals, try listening to people like Zach Wahls, who have had the most valuable life experience with two people who happened to be gay as well as his parents, the women who raised him to be the man he is today.
It’s hard for me to understand why people listen to this bright young man speak, and still find a way to justify laws against homosexuality, same-sex marriage, and the adoption of children by people who are gay. Religion is present in this families life, so the excuse of it not being accepted in religion is completely absurd. If you truly respected your religion, you would follow the most basic guideline and treat others as you wish to be treated. Don’t judge those whose lives have no affect on yours because ultimately, their decisions and consequences (not that they deserve any for their sexual orientation) are theirs, and theirs alone.
Zach Wahls, a 19-year-old University of Iowa student spoke about the strength of his family during a public forum on House Joint Resolution 6 in the Iowa House of Representatives. Wahls has two mothers, and came to oppose House Joint Resolution 6 which would end civil unions in Iowa.
The fight to to keep marriage equality in Iowa continues, help us support Iowans like Zach.

Gerardo Martinez, 29, was high as shit when neighbors reported seeing him toss a cat off the seventh floor-window, naked. Luckily, he had a good excuse, methamphetamine. Apparently, while under the influence, he had the urge to sexually molest the cat before throwing it out the window. Whether the cat lived or not (I’m assuming not) was not mentioned.
Martinez was also seen by neighbors exposing his ass in inappropriate ways before the incident occurred. He attempted to blame these criminal acts on his boyfriend, but eventually admitted that is was in fact, him, who performed a sex act with the cat and then proceeded to throw it out the window.
Although right now he’s only been arrested and charged with “suspicion of bestiality, cruelty to animals and indecent exposure”, he may face more charges due to the fact that he’s already a registered sex offender. I have a feeling he went after the cat because he couldn’t risk his freedom by molesting someone who could speak. Unfortunately, the drugs probably made him feel like this victim would somehow rat on him too, hence the toss out the window. Poor cat.
