Eraserhead Chandler Bing up there is 24-year-old flight attendant Joshua James Kuhn. He is accused of allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl while wielding a machete. The victim went to the Phoenix apartment where Kuhn was after meeting another person on Facebook and agreeing to a date. Kuhn and two other men were also there. The victim tried to defend herself against Kuhn with a knife but Kuhn was able to disarm her. Kuhn is reportedly claiming that the sex was consensual and that ‘she said she was 18’, which is the age of consent in Arizona.
No matter how well your kids think they can defend themselves, nothing is ever absolute, and rarely do situations like that go as planned. Even at the tail end of their teenage years, kids still need to be reminded that not everyone they meet online is necessarily their friend no matter how nice they may seem, and scenarios like this should be avoided.
Back in olden times, I use to post stories about unintelligent criminals who would post their crimes on social media and then think that the police never look at such things. I’m not saying I invented that type of content, but after a while everybody started posting stories like that. So being the hipster crime blogger that I am I stopped, but on occasion a story in that vein compels me to post about it once again.
Take for example, our subject above, one 35-year-old Christopher Conway of Phoenix, Arizona. I mean that mugshot alone would probably want to make me post about him even if he was caught for jaywalking. Sadly, that’s not the crime that Conway was arrested for. He was arrested for allegedly violently assaulting his girlfriend and posting the heinous act on the mobile picture sharing app Snapchat.
This wasn’t your ‘typical’ domestic violence either, not that domestic violence should ever be called typical but Conway is said to have gone to some brutally violent extremes…
According to court records, the alleged victim told police that Conway taped her hands, feet, and mouth up. The tapes, according to court documents, were removed and reapplied several times. Police also said the man used weapons, including knives, cigarettes, and a drill, which left various visible injuries. Conway reportedly placed a drill to the alleged victim’s head to tangle her hair.
Conway is said to have taken the woman’s phone and taken a picture of her naked and bound and posted it to Snapchat. When asked about the photo and the incident Conway reportedly replied that it was just “a game”. What fucking game involves knives, cigarettes and a drill? That sounds more like a biker gang initiation. Calling this “a game” is right up there with pedophiles saying they’re just ‘hanging out’ with children.
I have no tolerance for domestic abusers. They’re cowards who think that they have the right to abuse their partners, some even going as far to brag about it, which seems like what Mr. Neck Tattoo did here.
If you’re caught in abusive relationship and need help please contact The National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE. You don’t have to take it and you deserve better. There is no man or woman out there worth being tortured over.
29-year-old Felix Joel Perez Fong, of Phoenix, Arizona, has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting an underage girl that he was friends with on Facebook. He is said to have met the victim at a family party before continuing to talk to the girl on Facebook where they exchanged explicit pictures. Reports say that Fong repeatedly mentioned that he knew the girl was half his age. So let’s assume that the victim was either 14 or 15, that’s still under the legal age of consent. Apparently the age difference wasn’t large enough to stop Fong from picking the girl up from school so they could have sex, or as it should be called child rape.
There’s nothing that’s not creepy about this story, from meeting the girl at a family party to picking the girl up at school for sex. If you’re not careful, this is who could be talking to your kids on Facebook. While kids are more likely to be abused by someone they know, like a friend of the family, doesn’t mean predators won’t use electronic means such as Facebook to groom their victims.
In the past, lawsuits like these were dismissed due to the Communications Decency Act of 1996. The CDA basically states that a website is not responsible for the content that its users post, however if Backpage did in fact edit ads submitted by users, it may make the CDA defense null and void. These lawsuits are in addition to the ones already filed in the states of California, Texas, Washington and Alabama.
Hopefully at least one of these lawsuits will have its intended consequence because let’s not fool ourselves, even amid its current legal woes Backpage is still making money off the victims of sex trafficking. The fight is far from over, but Backpage is showing a vulnerability in its legal armor.
18-year-old Shea Dylan Myers, of Chandler, Arizona, has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy. The victim claims that Myers met the victim on Omegle then took the conversation to the messaging app Kik. The victim’s mother found evidence on the victim’s phone that her son had been assaulted.
I’ve gone on before about how Kik is rife with sex offenders and pedophiles. I’ve also said the same about Omegle. What you may not know about Omegle is that it’s not an app, it’s just a website. However as I have also explained in the past its motto is ‘Talk to strangers!’ It’s a webcam chat site in the vein of ChatRoulette. So if you’re looking for an Omegle app on any of your kids’ devices you won’t find one. All it takes to access Omegle is a camera enabled device and an internet connection. This could range from a phone to a tablet to a PC as long as it has a camera feature. Also, the internet connection could be a wi-fi connection since most of those devices can also connect to the internet using wi-fi, a mobile data connection isn’t always needed.
On a different note I can tell that some of you think that sex between an 18-year-old and a 13-year-old is no big deal, you’re wrong as usual. In the state of Arizona the legal age of consent is 18-years-old and even specifies the close-in-age exceptions.
B. It is a defense to a prosecution pursuant to sections 13-1404 and 13-1405 in which the victim’s lack of consent is based on incapacity to consent because the victim was fifteen, sixteen or seventeen years of age if at the time the defendant engaged in the conduct constituting the offence the defendant did not know and could not reasonably have known the age of the victim.
Considering Myers supposedly gave police the names of two other victims and admitted to possessing child porn I’m going to assume he knew the age of his victim.
We haven’t had one of these stories in a while but sheriffs in Maricopa County, Arizona, have arrested 52-year-old Terry Wayne Haupt for allegedly wanting to have sex with a female dog through craigslist. Sheriff Joe Arpario stated that Haupt’s ad on craigslist was very graphic. I don’t know why but for some reason this is a hot button issue for Sheriff Joe as his department has made numerous arrests for what I like to call craigslist pooch-screwers.
Like I said this is nothing new for craigslist as they have a long history of its users looking for ‘K9’ in the casual encounters section .
What is it with child abusers and feces? There’s either feces on the floor, on the kids or in this case used as a torture device.
27-year-old Nicole Candelaria of Tempe, Arizona, was arrested for allegedly abusing her boyfriend’s 3-year-old daughter. The girl had an accident in the bathtub. That’s not unheard of for children that age. So Candelaria did what we all would have done and told the girl it was ok, that accidents happen and she cleaned up the mess with a twinkle in her eye and a spring in her step. Ok, I made that up. What she’s really accused of doing is making the girl eat her own feces as punishment.
Police became involved when the girl told her mother what happened. When questioned by police Candelaria supposedly said that the girl lies all the time. Nothing like trying to lay the blame on a 3-year-old girl is there? Except the girl’s siblings also said that Candelaria made the girl eat her own waste. A medical exam on the victim also showed bruising over most of the girl’s body and an injury to her vagina of unknown origin. Candelaria would watch the children while their father was at work. The kids were visiting their father for the week.
With those tastefully done tattoos I wonder if she has a night job, one that may or may not involve a pole.
When I was about 3 or 4 my family went on vacation somewhere. I was too young to remember where we were but what I do remember is that the hotel we stayed at had an indoor pool. Hotel pools are one of the most favorite things of children, at least they were 40 years ago. I was not a good swimmer and stuck to the kiddie pool. However my mom wanted to try to teach me how to swim. The shallow end of the pool couldn’t have been more than 3 feet deep but at that age it might as well have been 50 feet. When my mom let go so I could paddle on my own I sank like a rock. It was one of the most terrifying experiences of my life, watching my mom get farther and farther away from me. Luckily my dad swooped in to save the day and I was no worse for wear. While I don’t have a phobia of water I’ll never forget how scared I was that day. I imagine that’s how the 23-month-old daughter of Corey McCarthy of Phoenix, Arizona, must have felt.
McCarthy’s daughter is said to have accidentally dropped a five-week-old puppy into the pool where the puppy died. While tragic it doesn’t require what McCarthy allegedly did next. To ‘teach’ his daughter a lesson he flung her into the pool. You can see the video at the linked article. She definitely goes under the water. A woman was able to rescue the baby before there could be any permanent damage.
Now in my story I sank. This poor little girl was thrown into the water so the fall probably added an increased amount of terror. According to the girl’s mother, who is estranged from McCarthy she says there is a part of the video where he’s hosing his daughter down in what she calls a form of torture.
Usually this where I would put in what ‘they’ should do but supposedly McCarthy is in the jail’s infirmary after getting beat up. It wasn’t made clear by whom. I may or my not have had a smile on my face when I typed that.
