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.
[UPDATED] [AUDIO] Sandusky Sentenced to 30-60 Years in Prison: Jerry Sandusky Claims His Innocence Prior to Sentencing
UPDATED: TUESDAY October 9th, 2012 at 9:30 AM – Jerry Sandusky has been sentenced to 20-60 years in prison. Seeing as he’s already 68-years-old, this pretty much means that it is very likely he will die in prison. Judge Cleland said prior to giving him the maximum of 60 years:
‘I’m not going to sentence you to centuries in prison, although the law would permit that. It’s too abstract, only a big number.
‘You are sentenced to spend not less than 30 and not more than 60 years in prison; that has the unmistakeable impact of saying the rest of your life.
‘I think it cannot be disputed that you have done much positive work, tragedy that all the
qualities that made you successful continue to conceal the vices that brought you down.
‘Continuing to conceal those vices from yourself and everybody else, in my view, makes you dangerous.
‘The crime is not only what you did to their bodies, but the assault to their psyches and souls and the assault to the well-being of the larger community in which we all live.’
I think one of the most eloquent statements that was made, was that of the lead prosecutor:
‘Sandusky’s statement yesterday was an insult to the true victims…and an insult to human decency…but that’s not a surprise.’
‘He displayed deviance, narcissism, a lack of acknowledgement for the pain he caused others.
‘It was a masterpiece of banal self-delusion. The self-referential and ludicrous statement should disappear as if it never existed.
‘It was, in short, ridiculous. He displayed the same cowardice that he displayed when he preyed on children.’

“I’m responding to the worst loss of my life. First, I looked at myself. Over and over, I asked why? Why didn’t we have a fair opportunity to prepare for trial? Why have so many people suffered as a result of false allegations? What’s the purpose? Maybe it will help others; some vulnerable children who could be abused, might not be because of all the publicity. That would be nice, but I’m not sure about it. I would cherish the opportunity to become a candle for others, as they have been a light for me. They could take away my life, they could make me out as a monster, they could treat me as a monster, but they can’t take away my heart. In my heart, I know I did not do these alleged disgusting acts. My wife has been my only sex partner that was after marriage. Our love continues. A young man who was dramatic a veteran accuser, and always sought attention, started everything. He was joined by a well-orchestrated effort of the media, investigators, the system, Penn State, psychologists, civil attorneys and other accusers. They won. I’ve wondered what they really won: Attention, financial gain, prestige… will all be temporary. Before you blame me, as others have, look at everything and everybody. Look at the preparation for the trial and the trial. Compare it to others. Think about what happened. Why, and who made it happen? Evaluate the accusers and their families. Realize they didn’t come out of isolation. The accusers were products of many more people and experiences than me. Look at their confidants and their honesty. Think about how easy it was for them to turn on me given the information, attention and potential perks. I never labeled or put down them or their families. I tried and I cared, then asked for the same. Please realize all came to the Second Mile because of issues. Some of those may remain. We will continue to fight. We didn’t lose the proven facts, evidence, accurate locations and times. Anything can be said. We lost to speculation and stories that were influenced by people who wanted to convict me. We must fight unfairness and consistency and dishonesty. People need to be portrayed for who they really are. We’ve not been complainers. When we couldn’t have kids, we adopted. When we didn’t have time to prepare for a trial, we still gave it our best. We will fight for another chance. We have given many second chances, and now we’ll ask for one. It will take more than our effort. Justice will have to be more than just a word; fairness more than just a dream. It will take others: somebody apolitical with the courage to listen, to think about the unfairness, to have the guts to stand up and take the road less traveled. I ask for the strength to handle everything and willingness to surrender only to God, regardless of the outcome.”
True Hero: 6-Year-Old Boy Killed By Intruder After Trying to Protect His Older Sister From Being Raped
This is a story of a true hero who sadly lost his life by doing one of the most brave things a person, yet alone a child, could ever do. Sadly, I’m a bit disheartened at the way that DailyMail has tried to portray this as “an intruder high on marijuana“. This story should show the heroism of this boy, and it does, but it also uses this as an opportunity to criticize marijuana. While it is true that there was marijuana in the man’s system, there was more than just that, which they tell you later in the article.
A six-year-old boy who was killed by an intruder high on marijuana had been trying to save his sister from the attacker, a court heard yesterday.
Dominick Andujar was allegedly stabbed to death by Osvaldo Rivera, 31, who was also accused of slashing the throat of the boy’s 12-year-old sister.
The girl, whose condition in hospital has been upgraded from critical to stable, suffered a slashed windpipe.
Oh, so marijuana AND PCP? Okay, now THAT makes sense. Unfortunately, far too many people have already heard that the intruder was simply “high on marijuana” and pay little attention to the fact there it was laced with PCP. Convincing the public that marijuana is a horrific drug by implying that it was the cause to this horrific incident is pathetic and dishonest, in my opinion.
Now, let me get back to the real issue here, a 6-year-old hero that is much more brave than many adults.
The attack took place on Sunday morning around 2:30am. After Rivera had snuck into the home, he attacked the children. The young girl had a gash in her neck and ran screaming through the streets, while the brother who tried to protect her, sadly, became a victim of murder.
The 12-year-old was able to help police track down the attacker by identifying him as what sounded like ‘Poppy.’ Investigators learned Rivera was known by the nickname ‘Popeye’ and had spent nights at an apartment in the area of the city.
Police found him hiding between a mattress and bedroom wall in the apartment. They said they also found blood-stained sneakers that matched bloody footprints in the home where the children were assaulted.
The children were being watched by a 14-year-old girl, authorities said. The teen, who was unharmed, was caring for them because their mother recently underwent surgery and was still in the hospital.
All of this took place in Camden, across a river from Philadelphia and is widely known as a dangerous place. In fact, it is often known as one of the most dangerous places in the nation. Police are investigating if the “wet” that is now on the streets could be leading to more violent behavior. While the young hero didn’t survive this ordeal, he did a great thing for his sister, who is a hero in this story as well. Not only did she survive, but she was able to identify her attacker and avenge the death of her baby brother.
The man who did this:

While this may be a controversial topic of conversation, I feel it definitely needs to be addressed. After doing a great amount of research for my blog, I had come across many incidences of babies and/or children who come from homes where they are treated very poorly by their biological AND adopted parents. Obviously, child abuse is not something that has just started to occur, but it is something that is very much a problem.
As a lesbian who is currently spending a lot of money on treatments to get pregnant, I am offended by how easily these adopted parents are able to gain parental rights to these children. More so, I am irritated by the lack of interference that takes place for these abused children born into hostile environments. But the main reason I am choosing to stand up and say something? Because I think it is a rather unfair system especially because gay and lesbians are denied the right to adopt children who are in need of homes. And quite frankly, it seems clear that parents abuse their offspring, whether they conceived them themselves or chose to bring them into their home. Wouldn’t a normal homosexual home be more of a comfort to a child than being pimped out and raped like the children who were adopted by the Troy, Ohio man? The name of the man is being withheld to protect the identity of the children, but two of their “clients” are being named as Jason Zwick and Patrick Rieder.
The sad thing is the father of these children was in the process of adopting a FOURTH child! He was able to get the green light on bringing four children into his home while I cannot even have one. I would do everything in my power, as a mother (lesbian or not) to protect my kids from this type of abuse, educate them, support them, help them to be the greatest that they could possibly be; Yet, that is no longer what is expected of a parent I suppose.
I’d like for you to read a letter written by Zac, a young man with a very tough upbringing. After 12 foster homes and things we could never understand he was adopted by two gay men. In his opinion, this was great and he shares with his family this letter:
To my Family,
This is the first Christmas letter that I have ever written. I feel like since I am getting older, I should start writing a letter to the family or just talk about how I thought the family’s year has gone until Christmas.
Ever since I ended up in this family people have told me that I was lucky. I have always known that I am lucky, especially when I have two dads that love me so much as Dad and Dadio. My family is very special to me. Even when we fight and even when we argue, I know they will always love me. Yes I am a lucky boy to have ended up here after spending so many years in foster care and not knowing if I would ever have a family.
I didn’t grow with a dad. My birthmom had many boyfriends and she did a lot of drugs and partying. My sisters and me were taken from her on my eighth birthday. It was not fun to have police in my room on that day. It made me sad and this sadness I carried for many years and it got me in a lot of trouble. Then I landed in a great foster home after having lived in 12 different homes in three years. It was when I lived there that both my foster mom and social worker told me there was a family that wanted me. There was a catch: it was two dads!
Honestly, it didn’t matter to me. I told them, “well, I never had a dad, now I get to have two!”
The start was tough and rough, and I put them through hell and back. I did awful and nasty things to them both. I stole their credit card and spent thousands of dollars online. When we went on my first vacation out of the country, I stole stuff from a souvenir stand – they found out and made me go back to the shop to return the souvenirs and made me pay the lady who owned the shop for the stolen property which then I had to give to a local kid. I didn’t get it and thought they were being mean.
When I stole their American Express and maxed it buying stuff online I was only 12 years old. They were very upset, but Dad made sure I got the message of how serious this was. He took me to our local police station and reported me to the police captain for having stolen again. I was taken to an interrogation room and talked to by three police officers. All the time there I only wanted my Dad to come in and bring me home. I wanted to turn time back to before my stealing so I would not be there and I would not have hurt my parents so much. I learned my lesson and NEVER stole again!
But Dad and Dadio brought not just me into this family. They also added my brother Derrick. What I can say about Derrick is that he is really cool, he is funny, he is an awesome gay guy, he is a one of a kind guy, he is my bro. Next they added Nick. Nick can get on my nerves sometimes, but in the end he is pretty cool. He is a fast learner when it comes to math and multiplying numbers. And with that said, I will go to the roots of the family.
Dad and Dadio. They are my parents and they are always here when I need them.
When it is dark they are the light,
When I feel frightened and chill’s,
They are the warmth I feel.
When I am hungry they cook my meals.
I did not put a lot of time into the poem, but in the poem you see my parents. The people that show me the light. The people that warm my heart when it gets dark. The people that cook my meals. If I could only ask for anything for Christmas I would only ask for my family.
Sexuality has nothing to do with your moral capacity and whether or not you can be a good parent. There are many heterosexual people who raise children and severely traumatized the kids. Yes, it is true that children could get adopted by a homosexual couple that’s capable of doing the exact same thing, but that’s the social workers job: to weed people like that out. As of now, they’ve made some mistakes, but the biggest by far, is denying the homosexual community the right to love and care for a child who needs a home.

An adoptive father, who is not being named at this time to protect the identity of the children, has been arrested for having sex and allowing other men to have sex with his adopted children. The 39-year-old “father” from Troy, Ohio, was also in the process of adopting a fourth child when all the allegations came to light.
Not only was he an adoptive father, but he was also a junior league basketball coach, who has recently been suspended due to the allegations. He has been charged with three counts of rape and one count of compelling prostitution. The part that makes this story even more disturbing is that he pimped out these children to at least two other men that the authorities are aware of at this time.
The man was apparently talking to an undercover officer online and arranging for him to have sex with the 10-year-old boy. The same detective that was arranging that also talked to two other men who claimed to have already slept with the boy. Sadly, the young boys verified that this was in fact happening.

The fact that these rapes are occurring within the military is shocking enough, but to know that only 2% result in convictions is absolutely disgusting. People do rape people and although we can’t necessarily stop that behavior, we should at least be punishing these individuals for the horrendous acts they’ve committed. You fight for this country, yet you condemn those within it as well as strip them of their freedoms. The military is supposed to be a place where you’re only fear comes from the battlefield, not the people who fight alongside you.
According to the Department of Defense, around 19,000 military men and women were assaulted in the year 2010 alone. Of that number, about 20% are servicewomen, while another 1% are servicemen. Sadly, this totals roughly 500,000 soldiers that have been sexually assaulted while serving in the military.
From this, I could assume that raping individuals or molesting people in the armed forces is okay in their eyes, but simply being gay is not. This seems rather unjust and corrupt for an American Organization. If we wanted to protect our troops and America, for that matter, we should be prosecuting those who take from others what they want without permission and allow those who are homosexual to serve without discrimination. Luckily, thanks to President Obama as well as others, one of these problems has been addressed.
Unfortunately, the issue of molestation and rape is still one that needs some attention drawn to it.
There is much more to be said on this topic, but hopefully this film will spread the word and help crack down on the unfair advantages that many higher-ups have in our military. Please share this with anyone and everyone so you can help be a part of the awareness. The only thing that keeps things from changing is not being aware. Don’t let our military be another example of how ignorance allowed people to be taken advantage of.

Viewers were shocked in the early hours of Sunday to watch contestant Daniel Echaniz 31, apparently force himself on 23-year-old student Monique Amin, who had passed out drunk after a boozy party.
Amin was asked about the incident the next day in the diary room, which led to the investigation. The female didn’t know much about the incident so the tape was reviewed where she can be seen barely moving, seemingly unconscious.
As the scandal began to engulf the show, one of Brazil’s most watched TV programmes, police officers arrived at the house and interviewed Ms Amin for three hours, before taking her away for a rape examination, according to sources.
This seems so impossible seeing as the guy knew he was on television, but I guess there are people out there that idiotic. Poor girl, who is apparently still on the show and participating…
