Jodi Rock is a 19-year-old mother who severely abused her 13-month-old son the other day, by burning his genitals with a flat-iron and being the cause of broken bones.
On April 26, police arrived at the Tahlequah City Hospital in Oklahoma, where a baby boy was being treated for several broken bones and severe burns to his genital area. Police say that when they arrived at the hospital, the baby appeared to be “glassy eyed” and “withdrawn.”
Initially, Rock had fabricated many stories to explain the abuse and even explained that her aunt, uncle and boyfriend were to blame. Shortly after, the mother then confessed to “burning [the baby] with a flat-iron hair straighter… she then said she took and closed the iron [on the baby’s] private parts”, as stated in the arrest affidavit. She then continued and explained that where his genitals were burnt “raised in a white blister which fell off.”
As far as how the child’s arms had broken, Rock said that she or her boyfriend could be responsible because “both play rough with him…pulling him up by the arms and throwing him up in the air and on the bed.”
The baby has been taken out of his mother’s custody and was immediately placed with DHS, while in the hospital being treated for the injuries his mother inflicted.
She is currently being held on a $200,000 bond at the Cherokee County Detention Center on charges of felony injury to a child.

The woman in the video who can be seen abusing the 10-month-old, is the small child’s 18-year-old biological mother. Her friend had witnessed the mother being abusive prior to this incident and decided that she would attempt to get it on camera and take it to police.
The mother was arrested after this incident was revealed and sentenced to 18 months in prison. During that time, the child was placed with a foster family and no longer has to endure these brutal attacks. I couldn’t even watch the full video without looking away and crying. The brutality is so vicious and unwarranted, it’s sickening to see a mother act this way with her innocent child.

Mistie Atkinson, from Napa, CA, is currently facing incest charges after ‘allegedly’ having sex with her 16-year-old biological son. Police apparently found Ms. Atkinson in a hotel room with her son when they were serving a warrant.
On March 9th, Mistie Atkinson pleaded not guilty to incest and oral copulation of a minor and various other charges. Unfortunately for her, there are videos on the boy’s cell phone that show Atkinson performing oral sex, as well as having full on intercourse with the young teen from February. She has also been accused of sending her son sexually explicit photos of herself.
“Atkinson and the victim are aware they are biological mother and son,” cops said in a release.
The boy’s father, who has sole custody (for obvious reasons), has obtained a restraining order against Atkinson. He had sole custody, and yet this woman still managed to coerce her young, biological son, into being sexually active with his own mother. I’m curious as to whether the boy is the one who turned in the evidence to the police and how he feels about the situation.
Until then, Mistie Atkinson will be held on $200,000 bail until May 10th, 2012, when she’s expected to have her hearing.

Obviously there has been a lot of controversy surrounding this video. Many people are upset that the person filming is not trying to help save the puppy, while others are saying it’s a perfectly humane way to train your dog to rescue. I think the owner figured that the pup still had its head above water and was hanging on to the edge, and clearly the mother figured out how to get the pup from there.

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.

A mother is facing harsh criticism (rightfully so), after being accused of injecting her 14-year-old and 16-year-old daughters with heroin and sending them off to school. Shantel Parker is also being accused of selling drugs to the girls’ classmates.
Police became aware of the situation after a witness from the school said that both girls seemed to be under the influences of drugs. Soon after, they got a warrant to search Parker’s home in Laurelville, Ohio, and discovered evidence of drug use.
Parker, who spent two years studying for a nursing degree but never graduated, was not at home when a search warrant was issued.
The 35 year old mother of two was arrested later at OSU Hospital and taken into custody.
Both of the young girls are now in the custody of Hocking County Children Services, while their mother is being held on child abuse, drug abuse, and distribution. Who knows if the list will continue to grow, but I assume so based on the seriousness of this crime.
According to the arrest warrant, Parker is not only accused of injecting the girls this one time, but this has allegedly happened numerous times. Along with this offense, the warrant states that she gave them other drugs as well as attempted to sell some to their classmates.
Sheriff’s deputies said that the children told them their mother started to give them drugs to treat pain for a toothache.
Heroin for a toothache?! I would have never thought of that! Apparently it worked because they seem to have gotten through that pain just fine. All jokes aside, this dip shit mother was booked into jail and charged with two counts of felonious assault, two counts of corrupting another with drugs and two counts of endangering children.

I couldn’t help but be moved by this mother’s insight into her son, aged 7, telling her he is gay. She, and her husband, handle this with such poise, I can’t help but think about how lucky his boy is to have such great parents. My hope is that someday, this is how each person will handle the sexual orientation of their children, because in all honesty, this is the right way despite what many people may think. During the civil rights movement, it took, and is still taking, years for people to understand that having a different skin color is NORMAL and shouldn’t be pointed out or rather, singled out. This too, will take many years, but this message from Amelia is a HUGE stepping stone, in my opinion.
Amelia’s writing on Huffington Post:
Considering that my son has a longstanding crush on Glee’s Blaine and regularly refers to him as “my boyfriend,” I thought there was a fair chance that he would someday say, “I’m gay.” But my kid is only 7 years old. I figured I had a few years before we crossed that threshold (if we ever did), probably when he was 14 or 15. I never thought it would happen this soon.
Six months ago “gay” wasn’t even a word in my son’s vocabulary. He has always known that some of our male friends are married to men and some of our female friends to women, and it is such a normal part of his life that he never needed a special word to describe them. When he did notice the word and asked what it meant, I told him that when boys want to marry boys and girls want to marry girls, we call that “gay.” He didn’t seem very interested and quickly went off to do something else more exciting than a vocabulary lesson with his mom.
Fast-forward a few months. I was on the phone with a relative who had just discovered that I was blogging on The Huffington Post and openly discussing my son’s crush on Blaine. I was in another room alone (I thought), explaining, “We’re not saying he’s straight, and we’re not saying he’s gay. We’re saying we love who he is,” when my son’s voice piped up behind me.
“Yes, I am,” he said.
“Am what, baby?” I asked.
“Gay. I’m gay.”
My world paused for a moment, and I saw the “geez, Mom, didn’t you know that already?” look on my son’s face.
I got off the phone and leaned down to eye level with him and rubbed my nose against his. “I love you so much.”
“I know,” he said, and ran off to play with his brothers.
Since that day, any time the word “gay” has come into conversation, he has happily announced to those around him, “I’m gay!” He says this very naturally and happily, the same way he announces other things that he likes about himself. Mention that a person is tall and he’ll quickly add, “I’m tall!” If he hears the word “Legos,” barely a second passes before he says, “Legos. I love Legos.” Saying “I’m gay” is his way of telling people: this is something I like about myself.
It’s amazing, but it’s also shocking. How many people have a 7-year-old come out to them? A lot of people don’t know how to react, and I don’t blame them. Before my son, I’d never met a child who came out this young — and we don’t know anyone else who has. The mere idea of children having a sexual orientation makes people uncomfortable. It’s something we don’t think about (or just don’t like to).
But here’s the thing: straight children have nothing to announce. Straight is the assumption. No one bats an eye at a little girl with a Justin Bieber poster in her bedroom, or when little girls love playing wedding with little boys every chance they get. If our sexual orientation is simply part of who we are, why wouldn’t it be there in our elementary years?
I’ve heard from countless adults who say they knew that they were gay as young as kindergarten but lacked the language to talk about it. And in most cases, they knew it was something wrong that they should hide. Because gay people are part of my son’s everyday life, he has the vocabulary, and it has never occurred to him there is anything wrong with it.
On one occasion after an “I’m gay” announcement, I watched my husband reach out to ruffle our son’s hair. “I know, buddy,” my husband said to him. “And you’re awesome, too.” That’s how we’re handling it. We want him to know we hear him, and that he’s wonderful. It feels like the right thing to do, and that’s all we have to go by. We don’t have any other examples.
We did take a few extra steps. Within a few days we had a quick talk with him about how some people don’t like it when people are gay, explaining that those people are wrong. If he hears anyone says anything about being gay like it is something bad, he is to run and get us immediately. We had a brief conversation with his teachers: Our son is identifying as gay. We don’t think there’s anything wrong with that or with him. And this is the only acceptable opinion on the subject. All his teachers, while surprised, were on board. We learned that he hasn’t used that word at school yet, so we’ll cross that bridge when the time comes.
I don’t think it will always be easy. We don’t know what to expect. At this point we aren’t looking for trouble, but at the same time we’re preparing for it. We know we have a journey ahead of us, just like everyone does. And this is one part of the story of our son and our family.
Do I think this is the last word on his orientation? I don’t know. He’s 7. Maybe as he gets older he’ll tell me something else, but it’s just as likely that he won’t. But really, that doesn’t even matter. What matters is right now. And right now I have a young son who happily announces “I’m gay.” And I’m so proud to be his mom.

Toddlers and Tiara’s is already a controversial show, but after seeing this I am shocked that they are still allowed to air this crap. Little Alana is a pretty hilarious little girl though who is sadly learning some pretty shitty life lessons from her mother.

A woman in Northwest Atlanta has been shot and killed by police when they came across her stabbing her 4-year-old disabled daughter to death. The crazed mother refused to drop the knife and the police decided to take action.
Emergency services were called to the home yesterday afternoon after the woman’s eight-year-old son told neighbours that he had been choked by his mother and thrown out of a window.
Having Down’s Syndrome made the poor kid highly dependent on her mother, and unfortunately, she was alone with her inside the home when she decided to stab the innocent child. Police forced their way into the home in the Carver Hills neighborhood, and came across the mother sitting in a chair and stabbing her daughter.
Two officers drew their weapons and ordered the woman to drop the knife and fired at her when she refused to comply, Meadows said.
He said between 10 and 16 shots were fired.
While the responding officers attempted to revive the child, they are under the assumption that she was already dead on the scene. Sadly, no one knows what led this mother to do this to her children. I believe the bitch was crazy. To calmly sit in a chair and kill your child?! There is definitely some bad wiring in that woman’s small conscious-less brain.
Ms Smith said the boy was with her when they heard the shots and said: ‘I hope my mama and my little sister are all right.’
‘She was my friend and my neighbour,’ Smith told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. ‘I am shocked because I didn’t know she was like this.’
Apparently the woman was 6 months behind on her $600/month rent and had no running water in her home. Both the landlord and person she had borrowed water from, had threatened to cut her off, which could be the reason the she snapped. I can imagine that the medical bills alone for her 4-year-old were rather high, yet alone, just simply providing for two children. Yet, there is no excuse for hurting your children or deciding when their lives should end. This is a tragedy and I am thankful that the woman was shot, even though it was most likely what she was hoping for. The bad news? Now her 8-year-old son has to live in a world knowing what you did and without his mother and sister, and for that, I hope there is a Hell and hope that she’s now there.
