Snapchat sleaze who lured girl from Sydney to New York blames victim

Snapchat sleaze who lured girl from Sydney to New York blames victim

Sean Price

I originally posted about Sean Price here. He’s the man from Queens, New York, who is accused of luring a 16-year-old girl from Sydney, Australia to Queens, New York, through Snapchat. Unsurprisingly, Price is now trying to blame the victim for his predicament.

From jail in New York, Price reportedly called the Daily Mail Australia to try to tell his side of the story, his side being the ‘I didn’t know she was 16’ defense. Price tells the Daily Mail…

‘First of all, she told me she was 22 – and I made my choice. Do you ask a girl for ID if she looks young? No,’ Price said.

‘If I figured she was that young I wouldn’t have met her.’

Right. So in the entire time you were chatting with her, through the time you bought the airline ticket, up until the time she was discovered in your mom’s basement, you’re going to tell me that you never knew her age? So why then did you allegedly have your mother tell police that neither you nor the girl were there? You are said to have driven her from L.A. to New York and you’re going to tell me the subject of her age never came up? Plus, didn’t you have to know her date of birth in order to purchase the ticket from Sydney to L.A.?

As an aside, in my previous post I wondered where the case would be prosecuted. From the Daily Mail article, it seems to indicate he will be prosecuted in the US, but could be further prosecuted in Australia. This will be an interesting one to watch.

Snapchat sleaze accused of luring girl from Sydney to New York

Snapchat sleaze accused of luring girl from Sydney to New York

I’ve posted stories before about predators who have lured girls from across the country. I’ve posted stories before about how predators have lured girls from one country to another, usually from Canada to the US. To my recollection this is the first time I’ve ever posted a story about an alleged predator who lured a girl from another hemisphere.

39-year-old Sean Price, of Queens, New York, is accused of luring a 16-year-old girl, who he met on Snapchat, from Sydney, Australia, to his home on Queens. Price allegedly sent the girl $1500 USD in order for her to fly from Sydney to L.A. Price is said to have met the girl in L.A., then the pair drove from L.A. to New York. They are said to have ‘had sex’ in multiple states during their coast to coast road trip. Depending on the state, the ‘had sex’ may actually be ‘child rape’.

The NYPD received a tip from Australian authorities and tracked down Price at the home he shared with his mother. At first, even his own mother covered for him, stating that he wasn’t home but police eventually found him and his victim in the basement. That’s right, they found a shifty online creep who couldn’t get women his own age in mom’s basement.

A flight from Sydney to L.A. is 7500 miles and takes 15 hours. To then drive from L.A. to Queens is 2800 miles and takes around 3-4 days if you drive for 12 hours a day. This jackhole took this girl from her home and family with the most obsessive depravity I’ve ever had the displeasure of reading about. If there’s some online sexual predator book of records this scumbag definitely wins the award for most miles lured.

It will be interesting to see where Mr. Pedophile Travel Agent will be prosecuted.

Western Australia: Hand to mouth action = smoking

Smoke-Free-WA-Colour

The government of Australia really hates smoking. They have quite the history when it comes to the fight against tobacco. So you would think that a country that is so adamant against smoking would lovingly embrace the concept of vaping as a way to get smokers to quit. Well, if the Supreme Court of the state of Western Australia is any indication, not so much.

Earlier this month vaping and e-cigs were banned in Western Australia. The Supreme Court used this logic to say that vaping and e-cigs runs afoul of the tobacco legislation…

Then came the controversial Western Australian Supreme Court decision which, on April 10, ruled that if an e-cigarette device involves ”a hand to mouth action” and results in the ”expulsion of vapour”, then it resembles a tobacco product and is therefore illegal.

That’s right folks, the WA Supreme Court basically banned vaping and e-cigs because they look like smoking. As I and many other vapers have said this is the what a lot of the anti-vapers believe.

Here’s the thing, the fact that vaping looks and even feels like smoking is what makes it attractive to smokers and helps them quit. This is why vaping has been more successful for me than any other cessation product.

But yeah, let’s take one of the best features about vaping and use it to make it illegal. If we’re not careful this is what can happen here in the US. Not necessarily an outright ban but so much over-regulation and taxes that it might as well be banned.

Mother Murders Toddler for Attention

Mum Gemma Gaye Killeen charged with murder after toddler drowns:

Gemma Gaye Killeen claims son’s murder was a bid for attention gone wrong:

Gemma Killeen: mother to murderer:

Struggle ends in son’s death:

As I scroll through the news articles, memorial pages, tributes, other sad and unfortunate stories. The one thing that is redundantly clear is that losing a child in any manner is tragic heart wrenching, soul crushing event. One never truly can or wants to understand how profoundly devastating it is to lose a child. Whether it’s your own, your nephew or niece, or many friends children that we count as part of our own “mob” to use Australian slang. Each one of us is precious and valued, our children, our fire, our passion and what truly makes our life’s worth experiencing. For all the horrible things in life, children seem to balance out the Universes scales.

As parents, particularly mothers it becomes our responsibility from the moment we become aware of a pregnancy, loving the life growing inside your body, throughout out our various journeys we all make sacrifices, decisions for our own life’s that affect our children’s. We make decisions directly affecting our children, from their haircuts, to their clothing, to which school they attend. Most parents approach these important decisions with what’s in their child’s best interest at heart. We all have differing opinions on raising children, there are many-a-mummy blog, where you can find varying types of parenting styles. We all have different views on what we find acceptable for our children; we are entitled to raise our children with within these variations of what society deems appropriate. There are some decision’s you will make as a parent some people will not agree with, due to their own personal beliefs or standards, or because the deemed by the majority of society you have made an error in judgment; your decision, for whatever reason is of no benefit to your child, in fact that decision causes detriment. Sometimes these errors in judgment can be minor or sometimes they can be horrendous.

On the 25th of November 2011, Gemma Killeen spent the early part of the day sunbathing at her mother’s home; she also shopped and attended a manicure appointment. At around 5pm that evening she sent texts messages to Eddie Wetere, the father of their son Te Reringa Keyden Ashley Wetere. These texts messages, asking Mr. Wetere when he would be home from work, went unanswered. There are reports the couple had argued the night before after Miss Killeen’s late arrival home from a night out. Upon receiving no response from her on-again-off again lover and the father of her 22 month-old-son Te Reringa, Killeen drove her car and her son to Hillary’s Boat Harbour in Western Australia.

CCTV footage shown in court, has Killeen entering the car park and at approximately 5:30pm. A text message sent to Mr. Wetere went unanswered, Gemma Killeen removed Te Reringa from his car seat and walked with him to the water’s edge where she left him. She returned to her car and drove to the car park at the opposite end of the harbour.

She began making calls to relatives, telling them Te Reringa had been taken or lost. She continued to call and text message Mr. Wetere saying it was urgent. She claimed someone had taken Te Reringa from his pram, while she filled a bottle or got something from the car.

The search began for Te Reringa, at around 6:25pm a couple spotted what they thought was a doll in the water. After the man retrieved Te Reringa from the water he started CPR. The ambulance arrived and transported Te Reringa to hospital where he received his angel wings. 22 months old, and one month short of Christmas Day, it would have been the first he was old enough to experience.

hillarys

Gemma has stated that she never intended to kill her son by placing him on the rocks at Hillary’s; that she was seeking attention from her lover and Te Reringas’ father by putting their precious child on those rocks, with nowhere else to go, but into water, by walking back to her car, starting it up, driving away. Take a look at those rocks in that photo, and the water, can you picture a 2-year-old boy abandoned?

WHAT IN THE FUCKING WORLD!?

I don’t know why the fuck she thought this decision was appropriate or in the best interests of her child or why she would consider using her child in a ploy like this to gain attention from Mr. Wetere. Clearly he’d had enough of her shit and wasn’t playing the text message games anymore. Unfortunately for him, and the rest of Te Reringas’ family, Gemma’s attention seeking, narcissistic tendencies and selfish wants, exceeded her need or desire to be a mother, or a decent human being.

And in all those moments she began telling lies, for more attention I can only assume, she wasted vital moments she could have used to change the outcome, to save her child’s life, realize her stupidity and foolish actions before it cost Te Reringa his life.

Instead of being so self-absorbed and demanding attention from a man who clearly couldn’t or didn’t want to answer you why not get excited for Christmas and the second birthday Te Reringa and his family were looking forward to, or getting him home and sorting dinner?

Gemma Killeen murdered her son, she set him upon steep rocks and left him alone to drown in Hillary’s Boat Harbour.

Gemma Gaye Killeen, plead guilty in the murder of Te Reringa Wetere and is serving 13 years to life in prison.

Rest Peacefully Little Man

Perth parents due to be sentenced

Johnstone and Minett

Johnstone and Minett

Perth duo plead guilty to child neglect:

Amber Minett, 27, and her live in sex toy Cassidy Johnstone, 25, have pleaded guilty to child neglect. At eight moths old Levi Mippi was injured in an unexplained incident at the home his mother and her blow in boyfriend. The charges of neglect pertain to not getting medical treatment for the child, after the unexplained incident.

Let’s hold up here. This is an eight month old baby, if the baby was left alone long enough for the injuries to be self-inflicted, should this not carry and extra charge for failing to supervise your child adequately? If these injuries were deemed by a professional, not plausibly caused by the infant left unsupervised to roll on the floor or what not, why why why are they both not facing extra charges for the harm that’s been caused to this child? Because they’ve kept the true horror of what poor Levi had to endure to themselves? Protecting her boyfriend maybe? Where was her protection for her son, when he needed her, or if she’s the monster that’s responsible, why has he not thrown her under the bus, literally and figuratively? Or are they both neglectful abusive oxygen thieves?

Levi only received medical treatment approximately 24 hours after the initial indecent had occurred. Levi’s paternal grandmother, Doris Mippi, was his saving grace although too late to un-do the irreparable damage done while in the care of his mother and her boyfriend, luckily in time to save his precious life.

Doris Mippi is now Levi’s career, Levi is now 22 months old, and instead of running, playing and exploring the world like he should be, he is now blind, quadriplegic, and several suffers seizures daily. He requires medication for the rest of his life.

The pathetic pair face the courts in may this year, the maximum penalty for the charges carries a ten-year jail sentence, lets hope that the judge also imposes more time for the fact that this child has his disabilities for life.

Kylie Eastwood sent to jail

Kylie Eastwood

Mother Kylie Eastwood jailed for giving five-year-old son alcohol:

Back in February I posted about how Australian Breeder and bogan (that’s Australian for trailer trash mate) was given a suspended sentence for giving her 5-year-old enough alcohol where he blew a .09 BAC. She gave her son some homemade booze which was 88 proof.

Apparently the Aussie courts do have a little sense since a judge sent her back to jail because they felt her rehabilitation was not coming along as they like. She was sent to jail for 8 months. She should have been jailed in the first place but here we are. Or as they say in Australia “Bob’s your uncle.”

Thanks to Allison for the tip and the instruction in Aussie slang.

‘Jail him for 100 years’

‘Jail him for 100 years’ say kids bashed and mutilated by cruel stepdad:

Two children are asking Australian courts to put their unnamed step-Breeder behind bars for 100 years for the atrocious abuse he inflicted on them.

The scumbag in question is said to have beat the children, ages 6 and 8, and forced them to do push-ups while he beat and kicked them for over 14 months. The boy was also genitally tortured by the coward and required surgery after the assclown used a pair of pliers on him.

This went on for over a year and the Department of Human Services did nothing until they received evidence of bone fractures. Previously teachers had made numerous reports and the children were taken to the hospital six times in those 14 months.

He also abused the kids’ mother while she was pregnant with his child and threatened to “cut my girl out of your stomach.”

No word on what his actual sentence may be but he is scheduled to be sentenced next month. Whatever he gets I’m sure it won’t be enough.

Thanks to Allison for the tip.

Man pimps out 12-year-old girl to 100+ men

Man pimps girl, 12, to 100 men shares profits with mum:

That scumbag is Gary John Devine of Hobart, Tasmania in Australia. He was recently found guilty of pimping out a 12-year-old girl to over 100 men. Devine would charge $100 for a half hour and an additional $50 if the john didn’t want to use a condom. The girl eventually developed STDs including chlamydia and genital warts.

However while he is the main scumbag in this story he’s not our main focus. Devine did all this with the permission of the girl’s mother. The mother has not been named to protect the identity of the girl. Devine would split the money with the mother and the girl, not evenly of course. All three of them are said to have used the money for drugs. I’m not surprised the girl did drugs. It’s not surprising that a girl forced into that lifestyle would turn to drugs.

The mother has been charged and is custody. And to make matters worse Devine only received 10 years and is eligible for parole in 8.

Thanks to Nara for the tip.

Homeopath sentenced for not getting daughter help

thesamsBaby Gloria Thomas’s parents Thomas and Manju Sam jailed for not getting proper medical help:

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.
