Breeders waterboarded girl because they saw it in a movie

Breeders waterboarded daughter because they saw it in a movie

Dion Stevens, 34, and Malisa Stevens, 41, of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, are on the run from police after allegations they waterboarded a 12-year-old girl. The news doesn’t state what relation the Stevenses had to the girl, but obviously they had some kind of guardian role over the girl.

According to the victim…

The girl told police in an interview that she [was] dragged into a basement by Dion and Malisa Stevens, bound to a chair by packing tape, and had rags shoved into her mouth. Dion and Malisa Stevens then put a wet towel over the child’s face, tilted her backward so that her feet lifted off the ground and poured a bucket of cold water onto her, police said.

Thankfully a neighbor was clued into what was going on by the victim and notified authorities.

The Stevenses are even said to have admitted using waterboarding as a form of punishment and they had learned how to waterboard from a movie.

First off, what in the blue hell could this girl have possibly done to warrant such a tortuous punishment? Did she know the location of ISIS sleeper cell agents or something? Secondly, just because something is done in a movie doesn’t mean you have to do it. One of my favorite movies is Highlander, but you don’t see me going around with a sword cutting off the heads of other people in trench coats. People, and I use that term loosely, are the reason movies and video games get a bad rap.

While I’m trying to be less ‘pitchfork and torchy’ these days, I wouldn’t be too upset if the Stevens’ disappearance was the result of being black-bagged and being sent to Gitmo.

However, if any good can be taken from this story it is that the neighbor was able to reach out to authorities to get help for the victim. Again, if you see something, say something. It’s better to call and be wrong than not call and allow a child to be abused.

In Pennsylvania, you can report child abuse at 1-800-932-0313.

UPDATE 12/18/2017: Through their attorney in court, the Stevenses said they want their daughter back. The daughter is the victim in this story. Good luck with that.

Bed-wetting, leads to water boarding

Mother accused of dunking child in cold water as punishment

Kellee Medina plunged daughter 6 freezing water charged with abuse

Kellee Medina plunged six-year-old daughter into freezing water as punishment for wetting the bed

Kellee Medina (27) of Missouri has been charged with abuse after she forced her 6-year-old daughter to endure a form of water boarding torture.  When Kellee’s daughter had wet the bed, she became so upset she put her daughter into freezing cold water and held her under. 

Medina reportedly brought her daughter to the E.R. after she blacked out from the punishment.  According to doctors her body temperature had dropped to 92.4f.  Medical experts said a body temperature below 95f is life threatening.  Fortunately the doctors were able to get her temperature back up, however they also discovered a head injury.  It appears she fell down the stairs attempting to flee from her belt-wielding mother.

I ask you who does this?  Who thinks that a suitable form of punishment for an accident, and bed-wetting is an accident, is to submerge their child in freezing water?  I mean seriously now, get angry much there mom?  Jeez!

Medina is being held on $20,000 bon and has been charged with child abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.

Medina’s other two children (aged 3 and 4) have been taken into care of CPS.
