Every time some mutant kid is caught making homemade bombs in some convoluted plot to attack his school someone always asks how do these kids not blow themselves up. Now you don’t have to ask that question anymore.
17-year-old Vincent Pizzonia of North Babylon, New York on Long Island blew his hand apart while allegedly making homemade bombs in the basement of his family’s house.
Pizzonia is believed to have made the bombs of rocket model engines and gunpowder taken from bullets. He supposedly had access to the bullets because his dad is former NYPD. More on that in a little bit.
After searching the home police found that Pizzonia is in fact a mutant as he had pictures on the back of his bedroom door that was sort of an homage to the cowardly scumbags of Columbine, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. Police believe he may have been plotting an attack on North Babylon High School.
Whenever guns and ammo start disappearing in these situations I always wonder are the parents really that clueless or are they being allowed to take these items? Not to mention that bombs were being made right under the parents’ noses. You would think that a former NYPD cop would know better.
17-year-old Israel Avila of the Brownsville, Texas area has been arrested and charged with the brutal beating death of his own 1-month-old son.
Allegedly Avila got frustrated at his child’s crying (what else is new?) and shoved a pacifier in the child’s mouth before ‘losing it’ and beating the child to death.
Since it is Texas Avila could be eligible for the death penalty. If you read my other crime blog (Trench Reynolds’ Crime News, blatant plug) you know I’m all for trying teens as adults for such heinous crimes and I have no problem with Avila getting the death penalty.
However it didn’t take long for people to start making excuses for Avila.
First off his lawyer claims that Avila is mildly retarded. I am so sick of this argument. Since when did chronically stupid become mildly retarded?
Avila’s family is calling the baby’s violent death an accident even though Avila allegedly admitted to police that he ‘lost it’ and went apeshit on his own son.
So far the 19-year-old mother is not facing any charges.
There’s no excuse here. He’s not mildly retarded. It wasn’t accident. People need to stop enabling violent criminals just because they’re family. If he was really family he wouldn’t have beaten his own son to death.
A 12-year-old girl from here in Charlotte, NC was allegedly sexually assaulted by two of her Facebook friends. The article refers to the suspects as men. Details are very sparse on this story.
If the girl was sexually assaulted then the scumbags who did this are to blame but I have to remind parents again of two things about Facebook. The first is a 12-year-old girl has no business being in Facebook. The second is just because Facebook doesn’t have the reputation of MySpace doesn’t mean it’s any safer.
The couple pictured at left are Manju and Thomas Sam of Earlwood, new South Wales, Australia. Mr. Sam was a practicing homeopath, or as I like to call them quacks. Both of the Sams were sentenced to prison terms for failure to get their daughter medical treatment.
Their daughter, Gloria, died from an infection that could have been easily prevented in 2002. The girl had a case eczema that ended up being so bad that all the nutrients in her body went to fighting the eczema and left her severely malnourished. Now I hate to break the image of how sexy you all think I am but I have a slight case of eczema. You know how I treat it? I put some Sarna lotion on it and occasionally take some Benadryl. But I guess that was too many ‘chemicals’ or whatever these Luddites are afraid of to give to their daughter. So rather then getting their daughter medical help they stuck to their brand of quackery. Because I guess it’s better to have a dead daughter than to admit you’re wrong.
It’s jackasses like this that remind me of the people who refuse to get their kids vaccines because of some unfounded fear of autism. Vaccines don’t cause autism. Get your kid vaccinated.
If homeopathy is your bag that’s fine. As long as you temper it with actual medical science. And don’t forsake medicine at the sake of your kids lives.
By now I’m sure you’ve heard that famed producer, alleged child molester and known fugitive Roman Polanski was finally captured in Switzerland by request of the U.S. He’s accused of raping a 13-year-old girl in the home of Jack Nicholson in the late 70s. I’m sure some of you are wondering what the big deal might be. As usual The Smoking Gun has the answer for you…
The document notes that a remorseful Polanski told detectives that sex with the girl “was very spontaneous” and that, “I withdrew before climax.” However, “upon the advice of his attorney, defendant did not discuss the allegations of either oral or anal intercourse.”
Oh, he withdrew before climax? I guess that makes it all ok then. Sorry for the inconvenience Mr. Polanski, you’re free to go. No, sorry, it doesn’t work that way. He sounds like any other sex offender trying to defend his illegal actions. And as with a lot of sex offenders he has his defenders and enablers. Let’s hear from actress Angelica Huston who was present the night it happened….
Huston said the teenager “didn’t appear to be distressed,” adding that “she seemed sullen, which I thought was a little rude.”
She also gives the ‘she looked like she was 18’ defense as well.
He drugged and raped a 13-year-old girl entered into a plea deal then took off to Europe like a coward. Just because he’s a celebrity that doesn’t make him any different from any other sex offender.
And for those of you who say that the government should spend its time and money on catching real criminals I say to you the drugging and raping of a 13-year-old girl makes him a real criminal.
38-year-old Justin Wood (no pun intended) of Ontario was arrested for throwing his 3-year-old son onto a campfire. His son was of course burned but there are no reports on how extensive his injuries are.
One might think that this being Canada that alcohol would be involved however as the terms of his release, yes he actually bonded out, he has to take all his meds and continue psychological and medical treatment. So it sounds like he may have been off his meds and alcohol may still have been involved.
To all the parents out there who are on some kind of psych meds I’ve been on them for years now because of crippling depression. The docs finally dialed in the right med and I’ve never felt better. However just because you feel better doesn’t mean you should stop taking your meds. Mental issues aren’t like a cold. They just don’t go away because you took a few pills.
29-year-old James Bushaw of Watertown, NY was arrested for texting a 12-year-old boy from Guilford, CT which is 6 hours away. Bushaw allegedly met the pre-teen on the anime inspired social site Gaia Online.
Some of the text messages included…
“Are you naked?” “I’m naked!” “Are you home alone?” and “Do you want to meet me when you grow up?”
According to police the boy listed his age in his profile as 18 but don’t go feeling Bushaw has been unfairly arrested just yet.
Bushaw is a registered sex offender who was convicted of engaging in a sexual act with a 3-year-old.
Who would have thought that a convicted pedophile would have re-offended?
You may remember my original post about Timothy Yeager of Tyrone, Pa. He was arrested back in March on 409 counts of sexual assault for raping a 10-year-old girl over a period of three years. The post resulted in families from both sides of the equation posting a record number of comments. Some of them were so inflammatory and went toward revealing the victim’s identity that I had to close the thread down.
Now usually I don’t repost the same story but the plea deal he’s getting is ridiculous.
Yeager pleaded guilty to raping the girl but the sentence that the DA’s office is recommending is a joke. For raping a girl at least 50 times and as many as 100 he’s only going to get 14 to 28 years with 12 years supervision when released.
Excuse my language but you have got to be fucking kidding me. This is a scumbag that should be getting one of those record-breaking sentences of like 800 years or so.
The DA’s office should be humiliated for offering such a lousy deal.
