Children Died While the Mothers Danced
According to Love's attorney, the women were only at the bar for fifteen to twenty minutes and each only had one beer.
PITTSBURGH — The mothers of five children killed in a house fire surrendered to police Thursday to face involuntary manslaughter charges for allegedly leaving the youngsters alone while they went to a bar.
This is a heart-breaker of a case. Sure, it was dumb to leave the kids alone. The children played with matches. The two 8-year old boys allegedly in charge of the children escaped the rageing fire. Five other children died in the blaze.
Now the mothers are charged with involuntary manslaughter and I suppose they must be charged with something. Young children shouldn't be left alone. We all know that. Yet I must wonder, wouldn't the death of one's children be punishment enough?
How is the loss of these children any more criminal than the missing Madeleine McCann? Madeleine was left alone with her younger twin siblings by her British physician parents as they went out for dinner. When they returned home, Madeleine was missing, apparently abducted. The McCanns have been charged with nothing but did they not leave their children alone?
Of course in the McCann case the "crime" happened in Portugal and the parents were British.
Children need close supervision and parents who don't know this, or do this....well they might lose them. Society can only do so much.
Making Love on a Roof Could Lead to Death
Below is this news story in its entirety.
From AZ Central:
COLUMBIA, S.C. - Police on Wednesday were investigating how a naked couple fell 50 feet from the roof of a downtown office building to their deaths.
The bodies were found on the road by a passing cabdriver around 5 a.m. Wednesday.
Clothing was discovered on the roof, leading authorities to suspect the man and woman, in their early 20s, may have been having sex. Their identities were not released.
I add this to the post because it could be a True Crime. Hey, a cab driver finds two naked people dead in the street. Naked people just don't suddenly up and die in the middle of the street.
However, that bit about finding clothing on the roof ......
It really does seem that this pair were having sex and somehow fell to their death.
Dear Lord....what an awful way to die. This pair were only in their 20's!
I'm betting they were drunk or high on drugs. This is not something functioning people normally do.
The Sad Tale of Jessie Davis
The death of Jessie Davis has been occupying the air waves this past week. It is a tragic story. For Jessie Davis was nine months pregnant with a little girl she intended to name Chloe. She was also mother of a cute little fellow named Blake.
Blake's father, Bobby Cutts jr., killed Davis in front of him then buried her body in a shallow grave that same night.
From the CantonRep:
Stark County sheriff's deputies and the FBI believe the body was dumped there by Bobby L. Cutts Jr., a Canton police officer boyfriend of the 26-year-old Davis. Cutts is father of Davis' 2-year-old boy and is believed to be the father of her unborn girl. She was scheduled to deliver July 3. They're investigating whether he was assisted by a high school classmate, and were searching her Canton home tonight.
At times it seemed like each passing hour brought more information on the then missing Jessie Davis. All week the sound of Jessie's mother could be heard via the desperate 911 call she made when she found her daughter missing while little Blake was left alone.
There wasn't much doubt on anybody's mind that the father of Jessie's children was somehow involved in her disappearance. This is True Crime 101.
As the days passed by and as more of Jessie's family and friends talked to various reporters, I began to wonder. First, go with me here, but Bobby Cutts is married. Why would a young woman with as much going for her as Jessie had get so deeply involved with a married man? By "deeply involved" I clarify...having two children with someone is, by me, deeply involved.
While Blake could have been an accident, could the conception of baby Chloe been anything other than planned? Bear in mind that Jessie received support for Blake via deductions from Cutts' paycheck. Receiving support via paycheck deduction would be a sign of estrangement, right? So Jessie went ahead and got pregnant again? They weren't close enough for him to just give her money for the care of Blake and then there's that little matter of Cutts' wife.
Well hey I've been censored on other group forums for daring to mention this little factoid but this is my Blog and the inability of others to "speak ill of the dead" don't apply. Because sometimes, ladies and gems, folks end up dead because of some really bad choices that THEY make.
Of course Jessie Davis didn't deserve to die! Certainly young Blake deserves his Mommy alive while now he has neither a mother or a father.
I got so tired of hearing, over and over and over, that Jessie is a WONDERFUL woman. I mean, how the hell wonderful could she be having baby after baby with a married man? And don't go telling me that she didn't know he was married. Again, Jessie received child support via paycheck deduction. Surely they had a reason for this setup. Jessie made sure she got support in this manner because, well Bobby didn't live with her or their relationship wasn't based on an abundance of trust.
Then she got pregnant again?
Yes, the second pregnancy could have been an accident. Whether she got pregnant or not, evidently she did something with Mr. Cutts that caused a pregnancy. I'm not seeing anything "wonderful" here at all. For whatever reason, Jessie saw nothing odd about having to garnish her boyfriend's paycheck to get child support and she saw nothing wrong with Bobby already having a wife. She saw nothing wrong with having another child with this paragon of manhood.
Okay, maybe Jessie IS wonderful but is also amazingly stupid.
Now what about this Cutts fellow? Dear Lord this is a fellow who needs a vasectomy IMMEDIATELY. Someone needs to tell Cutts that murder as birth control is messy and might land you in jail.
For Bobby Cutts has a child with his wife, he also had a child with another woman he never married and then there's the two he had with Jessie Davis. Why does he have to keep making babies, this man? If he wants the pleasure of these women's company, how about he wears a condom and avoid all this confusion?
Bobby Cutts also has a web site, allegedly a "swingers" site. In fact, it's been rumored that Cutts and his wife were "swingers", hence, perhaps, his relationship with Jessie. Jessie could have used birth control, however, and for that matter, so could Cutts. Why do they insist on bringing innocent babies into the world for their lack of self-control?
Now we are to understand that Cutts had yet ANOTHER lady friend, one who may have helped the man bury Jessie?
The fellow has to have one that drags the ground as he walks the earth on his sainted and fertile masculine feet.
For now I'll accept that Jessie Davis may have been a wonderful woman. But no one could deny she was a bit stupid and bit shy of morals.
Man with marijuana cigar behind ear asks Port St. Lucie cop for directions
I thought I'd copy the headline exactly as it appeared in the news item below.
From the Sun-Sentinel:
PORT ST. LUCIE – Maurice Stuckey made a critical error Wednesday when he asked Officer Matt Wood for directions but forgot to remove the marijuana "blunt" tucked behind his left ear.
I'm imagining this fellow running down the street, flagging down two cops for information. I'm imagining that big blunt sticking out from behind his ear in that manner that carpenters put pencils to mark for cuts behind their ear. I'm imagining the cop regarding this man asking for directions while trying to stifle a smile at that big blunt sticking out from this guy's head.
The Foster Mother from Hell
Society has no control over who reproduces and who doesn't. This is a good thing.
Society DOES have control over who is granted temporary custody of children not theirs. Yet time and again this Blog has featuring chilling true stories of those charged and paid for investigating child abuse takiing their paychecks but not doing their job.
Here's another story of a Social Service department that ignored the obvious. This is from the State of Washington, a state with many, many failings on behalf of the children counting on them for help.
From the News Tribune.com:
It took 10 years for the state of Washington to decide Chornice Lewis was an unfit foster mother.
The price of official inertia was a young girl's vision.
Lewis, 33, is awaiting trial on two charges of assault, including torture. Her plea: not guilty.
The victim: her claimed cousin and foster daughter, now 16, who lived with Lewis for a decade in Tacoma and South King County.
State records show the girl was abused for years: beaten, burned, locked in a storage closet and a car trunk, and partially blinded with hypodermic needles.
Her torment was no secret.
Keep in mind here that Chornice was NOT this child's biological mother. Chornice was her foster mother, given this assignment by the state of Washington and by virtue of the term "foster", was subject to periodic inspections by Washington State's Department of Social Services.
Teachers and neighbors constantly informed the foster care workers about this child's torment but hey, there was the paycheck and that's all that mattered.
The state of Washington readily admits its failure!
"A system breakdown" was the phrase leaders of the Department of Social and Health Services used in an internal review of the case, completed in February 2007. As a result, DSHS has reassigned and retrained workers. Agency leaders say they have revised their administrative practices.
So they've "reassigned and retrained" these total failures? HOW ABOUT THEY GET THEIR LAZY BUTTS FIRED?!?!?
Common sense. It doesn't apply when dealing with the mighty government workers' unions.
Not only do taxpayers fork up big bucks for total losers, innocent children supposedly being cared for are living lives of terror and fear.
It doesn't get any more disgusting than this.
For Ten Bucks I'll Sell You Morticia Adams' Identity
Heh. They really, really did buy Herman Munster's credit card.
From the News Tribune:
Did Internet thieves steal Herman Munster's MasterCard number?
Crooks in an underground chat room for selling stolen credit card numbers and personal consumer information offered pilfered data purportedly about Herman Munster, the 1960s Frankenstein-like character from "The Munsters" TV sitcom.
The thieves apparently didn't realize Munster was a fictional TV character and dutifully offered to sell Munster's personal details - accurately listing his home address from the television series as 1313 Mocking Bird Lane - and what appeared to be his MasterCard number. Munster's birth date was listed as Aug. 15, 1964, suspiciously close to the TV series' original air date in September 1964.
This Video Should Win a Prize
Please watch this hapless criminal as he attempts to rob a store. Perhaps this fellow should get a new career.
