CLASSIC @OPRAH

I don’t know how I ended up watching this clip but as soon as I did, I could not look away. If you don’t want to cry, don’t watch this one. This is a story about ABUSE, SURVIVAL, HEROISM, and STRENGTH . I don’t want to give away too much in this writing because I want you to watch the clip. I’ve never been in an abusive situation and certainly not a situation such as this but it really hurt nonetheless. The kids in this story are extremely resilient yet what they’ve gone through will always be with them. THE OPRAH SHOW has evolved over the years but she has always been educational, cutting-edge, poignant, and emotional. Watch this clip and let me know what you think.

PRAYER CHANGES THINGS?

Please look at the above video and tell me if you could possible beat this kid after he prays soooooo hard for God to help him. My only suggestion:  Lady, please find another way to punish this kid.  He’s definitely trying his best to keep from getting what seems as inevitable.

IF THIS HAD BEEN MY CHILD….

Another OMG! moment caught on film.  I found this one on youtube.

In Beaumont Texas, this teacher decided that she could actually slap (5 times) and berate a student with no repercussions. In walked…social media and now 63-year old Mary Hastings, a Geometry teacher at Ozen High School, has been arrested and placed on administrative leave.

Information has not been released about what made the teacher so angry but she can be heard in the video saying, “…because you’re stopping him from graduating you idiot @$%^&.”

Another student recorded the exchange and indicated that the incident happened last Friday. Nakisha Burns, Beaumont Independent School District spokeswoman, indicated that “BISD does not condone employees abusing any child and will not tolerate such conduct.” She also stated that “the teacher was immediately removed from the classroom and placed on administrative leave pending action on her contract.”

After being booked in the Jefferson County Jail on a misdemeanor charge of assault, Hastings was released on a $2500 bond.

While I am cognizant that kids can be a handful, in my opinion Hastings should never be allowed in another classroom. If this were my child that she had slapped and berated……….I would be the one facing multiple charges….. (just saying.)

 

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE? YOU BE THE JUDGE

Truthfully answer this question.  Imagine this scenario:  You have two kids who are now in their late teens and early twenties.  One day, they try to murder you and your spouse and then attempt to burn the house down.  You and your spouse have very visible injuries.  Could you forgive these MONSTERS???

BROTHERS

I did in fact call them MONSTERS! I brought this up because the Georgia parents who are in this situation, Yvonne and Zachery Ervin, recently spoke to the media and said that they forgive their sons for carrying out this heinous act against them. I originally posted their story on September 7, 2015.   “Those were not our boys that did that to us. We did not raise our boys that way,” Yvonne Ervin told Channel 2’s Tony Thomas. “We understand there are consequences for what they did. They understand that, but we’re just praying that the world forgives them in the same way that we forgive them,” said Mrs. Ervin. The young men are accused of drugging their parents, assaulting them, and trying to blow up their home which is located on Forbes Trail in Gwinnett County.

One of the Atlanta-area brothers accused of trying to kill their parents told investigators he had schemed to murder them “since he was 11 years old,” police said. Mrs. Ervin went on to say that “we forgive our sons and love them unconditionally. And we had to make sure that they understand that.” Okay, one thing I do know a lot about is forgiveness.  I also know that you can forgive someone without ever trusting them again.  I can’t imagine the parents ever letting these MONSTERS back into their home again.  As a matter of fact, if I were them, I would consider moving without ever letting them know where I moved.  These MONSTERS tried unsuccessfully to kill their parents the first time, and the parents may not be so lucky if their “sons” get a second chance to finish what they started.

I recently had a conversation with a few co-workers about this situation and several points were brought up that I had not considered. Is there something more sinister going on here that the media has not yet touched upon? Were these boys abused…sexually? Were they mentally abused?  Were they on drugs? These were just a few of the questions that my co-workers brought up. I really have no idea and I certainly do not want to victimize the victims. But…..who are the real victims here? I want to know your thoughts about this horrific situation.

NEW YORK PASTOR/COP ARRESTED: SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH MINOR

This is absolutely crazy but true.  A 38-year old Bronx NY police officer who is also a pastor has been arrested for having an affair with a 16 year old girl.  The affair allegedly lasted approximately 7 months and he met the young teen at a youth church program.

pastor cop

According to NY Daily News reports:

Officer Vladimir Sosa, a seven-year NYPD veteran, was arraigned Tuesday night in Bronx Criminal Court on third-degree rape, sexual misconduct and child endangerment charges.

Sosa is an evangelist who studied theology at the United Christian College in North Carolina, according to his Facebook page.

He is affiliated with the Iglesia Metodista Libre El Remanente on E. 180th St. in Tremont, the Bronx, where he met the teen, but often travels to preach at other houses of worship, said colleague Fernando Gonzalez, who helped found the church in 2001.

Gonzalez couldn’t believe the charges the Bronx cop is facing.

“It’s not true,” he said, adding that he’s always trusted Sosa with his three daughters. “It’s being made up.”

“Vladimir might have been trying to help the female in question with her spiritual life,” he said. “It might have happened that because of her young age, she confused the situation.

Apparently the girls mother found some questionable texts between her daughter and the cop and she confronted her daughter.  The girl admitted the affair to her mom who in turn got the police involved.  The arrested pastor/cop, Sosa, claims that he is innocent and has never been alone with the young lady.  However, a family friend of the girl who wants to remain anonymous says that is far from the truth.

“She’s doing very bad … she used to be a top student, a virgin, a girl that was in love with God and this man seduced her,” said a family friend of the girl, who also knew Sosa. “She is crying, very depressed … I can say that he destroyed her life.”

The three times that Sosa allegedly had consensual sex with the young lady happened at the apartment that Sosa shares with his mother.  Sosa was arrested and released on his own recognizance.

I can’t wait for your feedback on this one.  This is wrong on so many levels.

 

THE GOSPEL OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

This is one of those stories that sicken me to the nth degree.  Domestic violence is one of those topics that I’m not personally familiar with but I am close to people who have been affected by these horrific acts of violence.

james fortune

On the way to work I typically listen to the gospel artist James Fortune on the  James Fortune Radio Show.  The show is on our local gospel radio station.  Fortune has not been on the show for months now.  At work I began to wonder why he has not been on the show.  There are a number of other artists that have been substituting for him.  I remembered that Fortune had allegedly been charged with some type of assault last year.  I went online to find out more information and to my surprise I found that this gospel singer JAMES FORTUNE is a monster.  Yeah, I know that sounds a bit extreme but consider this:  Here is a man that opts to punish his four year old step-son by first beating him (child was nude during the beating) then placing the child in a tub of scalding hot water.  The water caused 2hd and 3rd degree burns from right above the child’s penis, down to the bottom of his feet.  It is my opinion that in cases of domestic violence, an adult may find it very difficult to leave their significant other but they do have that choice to stay or leave.  BUT children do not have the same option.  That’s what this case is mainly about to me.  I’m trying not to get too far ahead of myself.  The decision to pull Fortune from the James Fortune Radio Show came sometime after his arrest in late October 2014.

According to Attorney Toni Jones, Fortune is an abusive stepfather and an alleged wife-beater.  “He’s been charged with aggravated assault of a family member (his wife) with a deadly weapon. And I believe that weapon is being alleged as a bar stool,” Jones said.

Jones represents Roderick Davenport, the biological father of Fortune’s stepson. This past weekend Fortune was arrested in Stafford and charged.

“I believe the Stafford PD were concerned at the time of the investigation interviewing her possibly leg or her pelvis may have been fractured or broken,” Jones said.

Twelve years ago Fortune pleaded guilty to injuring his 4 year old stepson.  Fortune was found guilty of felony injury to a child.   Check out the video footage and the burns caused by Fortune on the stepson’s body below:

The stepson spent 63 days in the hospital and who knows how many more hours he will have to spend for plastic surgery in the coming years.  On his show he has a segment that asks the question “What Are You Feeling Fortunate For?”… My answer would be that I’m feeling fortunate that I am not that child’s father because by now, I would have definitely “laid hands” on Fortune and I don’t mean that in a holy way.  I pray that he gets the mental help that he needs because he seriously has some mental problems.  He sounds great on recordings and I’m sure that he manages to raise the service in person, but obviously has some tremendous anger management issues.    Here he is below in a song titled “I Believe”.  He’s the one doing the talking.

MISSING BOY FOUND IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS

Ok, I realize that I haven’t posted in a while. As a matter of fact, it’s been a long while. When I actually saw how long a span it has been, I really couldn’t believe it. Several people have sent me things to post and I haven’t posted any of them. One story came from A. Renae and it is one that I was going to post anyway. This is old news but in all actuality, any story that you read is old news. lol
There are some sad, sick people out in this world. Some of the things that people do amaze me to absolutely no end. The bright side is that mother and child are sure to have the happiest Christmas ever Consider the following story written by:

clayton county missing
CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — A boy who was reported missing about four years ago was found in a Clayton County home Friday night.

Five people were also arrested at the house in the 800 block of Duke Court in Jonesboro,

Clayton County police were first called to the home shortly before 11 p.m. to perform a welfare check. Police Sgt. K.T. Hughes said the people inside the house denied knowing anything about a possible victim. Investigators searched the home, but didn’t find anything.

The police department received another call from the home a short time later, so officers returned to the location. As they searched the house, the missing boy was able to call his mother, who then told the police her son was hidden behind a false wall, Hughes said. Investigators found the boy behind the wall.

The five suspects were charged with obstruction, false imprisonment and cruelty to children. More charges are pending. Their names have not been released.

Hughes said the victim’s mother, who lives in another state, traveled to Georgia to see her son. They were reunited Saturday morning.

THE DEATH PENALTY IS TOO GOOD FOR THIS MAN

rapist
This is one of those stories that makes me sick to my stomach. A 33 year old sex offender has been accused of the sexual assault of a 23 month old. David R. Wilson had just been released from serving four years in prison for… you guessed it (sexual assault). His sister allowed him to move in with her. That is when and where he sexually assaulted his 23 month old niece and infected her with HIV, genital herpes, and chlamydia. To make matters worse, he is said to have done the same to a 14-year-old girl, but additionally getting her pregnant.
ABC News reports that last November, reconstructive surgery was performed on the toddler’s private parts after her HIV, genital herpes and chlamydia diagnosis was revealed. As for the teen girl, she told a caseworker at the Children’s Assessment Center that she had been having sex with Wilson for two years and she had gotten pregnant along the way. Her medical exam also came up positive for HIV, genital herpes and chlamydia.
Wilson is being charged with super aggravated sexual assault of a child, with the enhanced charge being due to the age of his niece. He is currently being held without bond. It is still unknown why he wasn’t arrested at the time of the original accusation. There are no words for this scum.

MAN CHARGED WITH RAPING 2-YEAR OLD

rapist
According to reports, this is the face of evil.

One of the most despicable acts ever occurred recently. The Huffington Post is reporting that 31 year old Scott Sholds has been arrested and charged with raping a 2-year old. Sholds allegedly filmed the act using a cell phone. This heinous act was discovered by Sholds ex-girlfriend. After making the shocking discovery, she bravely contacted the police. “She told police that she found the video on her cell phone after her son had taken the device and given it to Sholds, who is the boy’s father.” Apparently the victim was the daughter of a woman that Sholds had lived with recently. The death penalty is far too good for this monster.
