Minnesota Vikings star running back, Adrian Peterson has been deactivated due to a warrant being issued for his arrest for alleged child abuse.  ESPN has more…

Here is more…

Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted by a Montgomery County, Texas, grand jury on charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child and a warrant has been issued for his arrest. The team deactivated him for Sunday’s home game against the Patriots.

Peterson’s attorney, Rusty Hardin, told ESPN.com in a text that Peterson “certainly will” surrender to authorities.

Hardin issued a statement Friday saying his client’s conduct “involves using a switch to spank his son.” According to a report by Sports Radio 610 in Houston, Peterson removed the leaves of a tree branch, which he referred to in a police report as “a switch,” to strike the child.

“This indictment follows Adrian’s full cooperation with authorities who have been looking into this matter. Adrian is a loving father who used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son,” Hardin said in his statement. “He used the same kind of discipline with his child that he experienced as a child growing up in east Texas. Adrian has never hidden from what happened.”

Hardin said Peterson has cooperated fully with authorities and voluntarily testified before the grand jury for several hours. 

Adrian Peterson’s attorney said Friday that Peterson used the same kind of discipline with his child that he experienced growing up in east Texas.

“Adrian will address the charges with the same respect and responsiveness he has brought to this inquiry from its beginning,” Hardin said. “It is important to remember that Adrian never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury.”

The Vikings released a statement earlier Friday saying they’re in the process of gathering information about Peterson’s legal situation and deferred comment to Hardin.

The past few weeks have been rather embarrassing for the NFL.   From Wes Welker being in hot water, to the Ray Rice video of him knocking out his then fiance, NFL players behaving badly is getting nearly bad as the NBA.

This story comes from Pakistan Today and if I didn’t know Islam to be what it is, I wouldn’t believe it. Maybe this is the Pakistani version of The Onion. CORRECTION AND EDIT: Yes, it is apparently NOT TRUE. I saw it on several reputable websites. My apologies. I’ll leave it here for your amusement, because I have no doubt that if some “Islamic Council” could do this, they would do this. Note that the photo, as I orginially said, is unrelated, but it is still a photo. IT IS NOT TRUE. MY APOLOGIES (minus the photo and the comment under it): The story about child marriages, about half way down, links to “The Express Tribune with the International New York Times.” This is the story of Marvi Memon and child marriages, . I believe this is true. Chairman Maulana Muhammad Khan Shirani is involved in both stories. He believes Pakistan’s laws “restricting” child marriage are unIslamic. AGAIN: My apologies.

The supposed-caption is “Muslim Girls in Chains Being Led to Marry.” I haven’t found the original source of the photo, nor do I know the country of origin. I’m crediting it to The Patriot, as that seems to be the earliest dated report
The supposed-caption is “Muslim Girls in Chains Being Led to Marry.” I haven’t found the original source of the photo, nor do I know the country of origin. I’m crediting it to The Patriot, as that seems to be the earliest dated report

If the young girls in the photo above are not being led in chains to marry, they ARE BEING LED IN CHAINS. Note the difference in size between the ‘chained’ and the big sisters on each side. I wonder if those two have the slightest ache in their heart for these little ones? I wonder if they go on an auction block?

Islamabad – Sharia Correspondent: The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) concluded their 192nd meeting on Thursday [convened on March 10, 2014] with the ruling that women are un-Islamic and that their mere existence contradicted Sharia and the will of Allah. As the meeting concluded CII Chairman Maulana Muhammad Khan Shirani noted that women by existing defied the laws of nature, and to protect Islam and the Sharia women should be forced to stop existing as soon as possible. The announcement comes a couple of days after CII’s 191st meeting where they dubbed laws related to minimum marriage age to be un-Islamic.

The above is eerily similar to what Elliot Rodger, the Isla Vista, California shooter said in his manifesto. See the manifesto ‘cliff notes’ here.

After declaring women to be un-Islamic, Shirani explained that there were actually two kinds of women – haraam and makrooh. “We can divide all women in the world into two distinct categories: those who are haraam and those who are makrooh. Now the difference between haraam and makrooh is that the former is categorically forbidden while the latter is really really disliked,” Shirani said.

He further went on to explain how the women around the world can ensure that they get promoted to being makrooh, from just being downright haraam. “Any woman that exercises her will is haraam, absolutely haraam, and is conspiring against Islam and the Ummah, whereas those women who are totally subservient can reach the status of being makrooh. Such is the generosity of our ideology and such is the endeavour of Muslim men like us who are the true torchbearers of gender equality,” the CII chairman added. Read more here, March 15, 2014.

The meeting also affirmed that once puberty is reached, a girl is ready to marry and it is “un-Islamic” to see it any other way. Chairman Maulana Muhammad

Khan Shirani quoted Article 2, 7 and 227 of Pakistan’s Constitution, along with verses from the Koran and Hadith saying that when a girl attains puberty, [life as a girl is over for her] the sick fun for Muslim men may begin. Pakistan adopted the Child Marriage Restraint Act of 1929, which says that a male under 18 and a female under 16 cannot be married-off. A “minor” means a person of either sex who is under 18 years of age. If a male older than 18 marries a “child, he can go to prison for one month and/or be fined “one thousand rupees.” Not much “restraint” in that law.

If a parent contracts their ineligible-by-law child to marriage, the parent or guardian may also be jailed for one month and/or fined one thousand rupees.” There are other indiscernable provisions — eyes glazing over. It appears the “Restraint” of marrying a young girl is a joke. Read it here. 

Marvi Memon
Marvi Memon

Marvi Memon is a member of the National Assembly of Pakistan. She introduced legislation, along with others, attempting to amend the Council of Islamic Ideology’s (CII) “Act.”  She is an attorney and the daughter of a prominent politician, educator and businessman. From what I read in the “Restraint” Act, there is no “restraint” and she and others are fighting a losing battle, but at least they are doing something. Feminists and Liberals in the U.S. could at least speak about it, as conservatives, both men and women do, but they remain silent, including Barack and Michelle Obama who both think Islam is just swell.

The Patriot (Britain):

Notice the contrast in views between the Creator of the Universe revealed in Genesis and Allah. Our Creator created Adam as male and female. He took one side of His creation, Adam, and formed the first woman by His own Will. This is in sharp contrast to Allah – the existence of women is against the will of Allah. Amazingly enough, there are some who attempt to claim that Allah is the same as the Creator that is expressed in Torah – even though the 2 are in sharp disagreement on so many points.

This type of emotional suffering around the world is incomprehensible, especially for women and children (although boys are routinely abused) — and none of it is the fault of the United States of America.

Caught On Tape: Security Guard Viciously Attacks Disabled Student

As reported by CBS.

Oakland School Security Guard Seen Hitting Student In Wheelchair, Dumping Him On Floor

In Oakland, CA a high school security guard attacked freshman Francisco Martinez, handcuffing him, beating him several times about the head and dumping him on the floor. The beating was so bad that only when another security guard intervened did the attack come to an end.

According to a letter from Oakland High School principal Matin Abdel-Qawi to parents, a student in a wheelchair was lingering in a hallway as security officers urged them to get to class on May 19.

One security officer then ordered the student, identified as freshman Francisco Martinez, to move along and either Martinez didn’t comply or was slow to do so, according to Abdel-Qawi.

Martinez suffers from cerebral palsy. His delay prompted the security officer, identified as 23-year-old Marchell Mitchell, to push Martinez by his chair handles. Martinez objected by slapping the officer’s hands away, Abdel-Qawi said. The incident then escalated even further, according to the letter:

In response, the security officer handcuffed the student and continued to roll him toward class. At this point, the student turned around in his wheelchair and spat in the face of the [security officer].
The security officer then struck the student several times before dumping him from his wheelchair onto the floor, at which time another security officer intervened to restrain his partner.

Martinez’ injuries were sufficient to warrant a trip to the emergency room and the security guard has been arrested and is facing felony charges.

Mitchell was arrested for assault, child abuse and other charges. Abdel-Qawi said Martinez was taken to the hospital for his injuries but was expected to recover. “I’m shocked and deeply hurt by this behavior and apologize on behalf of the staff at Oakland High,” Abdel-Qawi said in the letter. “This incident is not reflective of the kind of culture we cherish at our school or how we treat one another.”

Teacher Caught on Camera Grabbing Kindergartner By His Face; You Won’t Believe Her ‘Punishment’

Share

Hat/Tip Independent Journal Review.

We send our children to school in order that they get an education. We also have the expectation that our schools will keep our children safe while they are in their care. However, that was not the case with one little 6 year old boy whose only crime was going to the bathroom.

Okay, so here’s the scenario: A teacher comes across a kindergartner leaving the bathroom. She grabs the 6-year-old boy by his face and pins him against the wall in an apparent fit of anger. But she doesn’t stop there. She then picks up the little guy by his shirt, as his head flops back. The whole thing is caught by surveillance video.

The teacher’s punishment? A 10-day suspension without pay.

See for yourself if you think this teacher’s actions warrant a 10 day suspension.

Yeah, the parents didn’t think this teacher’s actions were grounds for anything other than dismissal.

Anthony and Autumn Nelson are still stunned by what happened to their 6-year-old son Ian last Wednesday. Mr. Nelson told CNN:

 ‘We thought it was just a little incident that happened, and that’s what the school made it out to sound like. And then all of a sudden we get this video today and this is just outrageous.”

 The Nelsons say Ian had a bruise to the back of his head.

 A letter Tuesday from Riverdale Superintendent Eric Hoffman informed teacher Barb Williams that she is suspended for ten days without pay for her “repeated use of physical force [that] was completely unwarranted and unprofessional.”

The parents plan on taking this tape to their county Sherff’s office so they can press charges.

Normally I’m not a litigious person, but in this case, I hope these parents get a nice fat settlement from this school system. Maybe then they will learn to hire teachers that don’t abuse the children in their custody.

The Nelsons want Williams fired. They say they plan to take the video to the county sheriff’s office and pursue criminal charges.

One can only wonder what would happen to this little boy’s parents if they were caught abusing him this way.

Political Correctness Taken Too Far: British Child Taken From Family Due to UKIP

Share

 

In the newsletter I receive from Crisis Magazine, there is an article entitled “Political Correctness Reaches New Low in UK” by Theodore Dalrymple. In that article he shares the story about a family, in Rotherham England, who has been foster-care parents for the last seven years. Recently, the Rotherham Borough Council’s Strategic Director of Children and Young People’s Services, Joyce Thacker, made the decision to remove three children from their care because they are members of the UK Independent Party (UKIP).

I don’t know a whole lot about politics in England or much about the UKIP, except for what I’ve read recently on the internet. However, they sound somewhat similar to the Libertarian Party here in the United States. They believe in sovereignty and want England to pull out of the European Union. They believe in small government. They also believe there should be tougher immigration policies or what Thacker calls “an end to multiculturalism”. However their platform states that yes, they do reject multiculturalism but instead they support “uni-culturalism, a single British culture embracing all races, religions and colours”.

The three children were living with this couple for eight weeks when the decision to take them away from the parents was made. The worst part of the whole thing is that the children were NOT taken from the couple because of abuse or neglect. They were taken away from the couple on the sole grounds that they are members of the UK Independent Party which has been deemed by the local council to be racist. Since the three children are “not indigenous white British”, the council and Ms. Thacker feel that long term the children would be negatively influenced by the foster parents.

The leader of the UK Independent Party, Nigel Farage, says that Ms. Thacker should be fired and heads should roll and has even said that a legal route may be taken to return the children to the family and for disciplinary action to be taken toward the Rotherham Council. At this point, it appears to me that people at various levels of government are passing the buck and placing blame, but Joyce Thacker still says “she did not regret the decision, which was reached after ‘a lot of soul searching’”.

The reason I wanted to bring this story to everyone’s attention after I learned about it is because of the direction our own country, the United States, is headed. You hear every day about what you can and cannot say and do because it is “politically incorrect”. You hear quite often that if you are against lax immigration or are against the Obama Administration, that you are a “racist”.

I whole-heartedly feel that this scenario in this real life story can and will occur in our country. I also believe that it will not be a long time in the future. The direction our country is going, I believe that individuals and various political parties who do not believe in or agree with the big government, socially lax, center to left leaning beliefs, will be more and more marginalized and discriminated

Washington County (PA) Children and Youth Services Accused of Abetting Child Abuse and Neglect

Share

What happens when children are abused, neglected, and sexually exploited?   If the allegations are true, not much, if Washington County Children and Youth Services are involved.  WTAE in Pittsburgh has more…

Channel 4 Action News’ Paul Van Osdol obtained court documents detailing cases of kids living in filth and a teenage girl moving in with a Megan’s Law offender.

A 6-year-old boy was found on a cold February morning in the middle of the road outside his parents’ house in New Eagle, Washington County.

“He had on a T-shirt, a diaper. He was covered in feces. His hands and feet were purple,” said Beth Dermont, whose husband found the child.

Dermont said when her husband knocked on the door of the boy’s home, no one answered, so they took care of him until police arrived.

He declined to comment, but Channel 4 obtained a letter where the judge cites “repeated egregious errors and omissions of the agency that directly resulted in physical harm to children.”

In one case, a court master found CYS allowed a heroin addict to keep custody of children even after she repeatedly failed drug tests, failed to attend treatment sessions and gave birth to a drug-addicted baby.

In another case, DiSalle found CYS placed an abused child in the same home as the abusive mother and then misled the court.

Another one of the cases involved a 52-year-old Megan’s Law offender named Melvin Wilson, who was convicted of molesting a 9-year-old girl.

Documents obtained by Channel 4 Action News show CYS still allowed Wilson to live with a mentally challenged teenage girl, even after she had his child.

Only after a judge-issued order were the teenager and the baby removed from Wilson’s home.

If we are to have agencies charged with protecting children, should we not expect them to do their job, rather than aid and abet abusive parents or child molesters?

WTAE also has a video report, that could not be embedded.

Occupy DC: Let’s Add Child Neglect to the List of Occupod Crimes

Share

Even though most of the Occupod camps are closed, the crimes keep occurring.  The latest is from Occupy DC, where child neglect can be added to the list.  Big Government has more..,.

An infant’s cries rang through the Occupy DC encampment in McPherson Square Wednesday morning, and when a group went to investigate they found only a baby girl alone in a tent, wearing a onesie and mittens.

Soon after, authorities said, a man had been arrested and the girl — who was unharmed — was in the city’s care.

The campers notified U.S. Park Police officers and then cared for the girl until help arrived, according to Kelly Canavan, 36, a retired Prince George’s County school teacher who has been living at the camp.

Thankfully, the occupods did report this one.  As for the crime itself, I’m afraid that nothing that the occupods say or do surprises me.  Though I have to question one thing, how does one get to be a retired school teacher at age 36?

Will Joe Paterno be Forced out at Penn State?

Share

Sports fans out there in the CH 2.0 readership will recognize Joe Paterno, the 40+ year Penn State Coach.  However, the PSU great is in significant hot water due to a sex scandal involving a former assistant coach, who has been accused of multiple counts concerning sex acts with children, some of which allegedly occurred at PSU athletic facilities.  Here is some coverage from ABC…

Paterno’s former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested Saturday for allegedly molesting eight boys, at least one of which Paterno allegedly was told about. Paterno was scheduled to have a news conference earlier today, but it was abruptly cancelled by campus officials.

Outside of his home today, Paterno, 84, told reporters and fans that he wanted to have the news conference, which was cancelled just an hour before it was set to begin.

“I know you guys have a lot of questions and I was hoping I was going to be able to answer them today,” Paterno said. “We’ll try to do it as soon as we can. Can’t do it today.”

Penn State officials also said today that they had not heard that the iconic football coach is getting the boot. Representatives from the public information office, board of trustees, and football department all denied being told anything that pointed to Paterno being removed from the head coach position, which he’s held for 46 years.

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

 

In 2002, graduate assistant coach Mike McQueary allegedly saw Sandusky in the shower of the football team’s locker rooms sexually assaulting a young boy of about 10. McQueary told Paterno what he saw, and rather than tell the police, Paterno reported the information to his boss, Curly, and then never spoke of the incident again, according to a grand jury presentment.

Paterno released a statement Sunday saying he “did what (he) was supposed to do” by reporting the incident only to his supervisor, Curly.

Curly and his supervisor, Shultz, did not report the incident to police. They then told Spanier that Sandusky had been seen acting inappropriately with a boy in the showers and had therefore restricted his access to campus grounds. Spanier approved, and did not contact the police.

Under Pennsylvania state law, only Curly and Shultz were responsible for contacting the police to report the incident, according to the attorney general.

There are rumors flying regarding Paterno’s future, including some that the iconic coach is losing support with the PSU Board. However, we are left with the single big question here; did Paterno do enough when presented with evidence of his assistant’s abuse of minors?

Planned Parenthood: Fake Propaganda or a Pattern of Negligence?

Share

If you noticed, I’ve been going back and forth with Chris Dominguez, the resident lib blogger at Silent Majority.  We’ve been debating the significance of the Planned Parenthood stings.  He recently posted, so I thought I’d respond.

Where I think I disagree with him is this: the “pattern” of misbehavior that Live Action appears to be targeting each time is not a pattern that actually occurs in the real world.  They are patterns artificially created by the producers of the video in a specific bid to induce outrage and draw media attention.  That makes them propaganda pieces — sometimes monstrously good propaganda pieces, I’ll admit, but propaganda pieces all the same.

Let’s follow his line of thinking to its logical conclusion…

An undercover police officer buys crack cocaine from a suspect.  It’s recorded on video.  The defense attorney comes foreword to state that this misbehavior that does not occur in reality, and that the police cleverly manipulated the suspect into selling the crack to the officer.  Even though the full, unedited video showed that the officer only asked for the “product,” and the suspect freely cooperated, the defense persisted in their efforts at stating that this was only “propaganda” and that drug dealers really don’t sell drugs in real life situations.  After all, the cop wasn’t a “real” drug user.

Planned Parenthood and donations for African-American abortions.  Is it Matt’s contention that part of Planned Parenthood’s mission is to abort African-American babies, or that Planned Parenthood’s staff is full of closet KKK members?  These strike me as marvelously dubious propositions, to say the least.  In fact, if we assume that most staff members at a Planned Parenthood clinic are liberal, as seems reasonable, it’s actually quite a silly proposition.  So what is the purpose of a “sting” operation that purports to show Planned Parenthood staffers accepting a donation from a person who presents himself as a racist?  Is it going to reveal an already-existent pattern of Planned Parenthood racism, or is it more likely to be a misleading video that exploits a staffer’s temporary confusion about how to react to a person saying horrible things?

In reality, it is not my contention at all.  I was in fact, one of the stated intentions of the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger.  I’m just using her words.

“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

Margaret Sanger’s December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon’s Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976.

Then, when one looks at the fact that 70% of Planned Parenthood facilities are located in minority neighborhoods, and that over 35% percent of all abortions are performed on African Americans, which far exceeds their percentage of overall population, we can say that it’s purely coincidental, right?

KKK shock rhetoric aside, we see that the founder of a group openly stated her intent of exterminating a race, and then, nearly a century later, the organization she founded is engaged in doing just that, do we see a pattern?

Let’s again follow Mr. Dominguez’s thinking to its logical conclusion…

I’m at a party, and I’m annoyed at another attendee.  I stand and publicly announce that at some point in the evening, I’m going to punch the other attendee in the nose.  Two hours later, I rise, go across the room, and punch the other person in the nose.  The crowd is astonished and many are head to say, “How could we have known that he was going to do that?”

2) 13-year old girl in Indiana. The second set of videos that Matt puts up concerns the question of what Planned Parenthood staffers will do when confronted by a 13-year old girl who tells them that she has a 30 year-old boyfriend.  (In a second video, they have a 14-year old girl who says he has a 31 year-old boyfriend.)  Will they report the couple to law enforcement, as demanded by state law, or will they find ways for her to get around the law?  In both cases, staffers offer the underage girl advice that will allow her to avoid having to turn her boyfriend — who is guilty of statutory rape — over to law enforcement.

These latter videos actually strike me as being much more germane to the point that Matt is trying to make — this actually seems to be something of a pattern of behavior for the organization, and it clearly goes against the spirit of the law — and yet we still have to note that the situation presented in the videos is artificially created to induce public outrage and grab media attention, not to expose a prior pattern of behavior at Planned Parenthood.  Surely it’s not the contention of Live Action that Planned Parenthood condones sexual behavior between 13 year-old girls and 30 year-old men, is it?

I’m a mandated reporter, just as these workers are.  I would get a name, and report them to the police as soon as possible.   There is no ambivalence to that law…none what so ever.  You either make the report, or you risk losing your career.  I’ve been a mandated reporter for almost 20 years, and at no point have I hesitated to make a report.  I’ve also worked with dozens, if not hundreds of people over the course of my career, in multiple locations.  Never  have I known another worker refuse or hesitate to make a report.

I’ve heard some really strange stories, and have worked in some really disturbing situations, but the law is so clear cut, and so simple, that I cannot believe that these Planned Parenthood workers didn’t red light these cases immediately.  The only other explanation is that this is a failure to train the borders on criminal negligence.

But the second set of videos goes beyond that in the respect that they gave advice on how to hide it.  It wasn’t simply a case of not reporting.  The workers INSTRUCTED the undercover children on HOW to cover it up.  That is the distinction that damns the Planned Parenthood workers.  There is a difference between simple and gross negligence.  In my opinion, Planned Parenthood exceeded both.  You see, negligence is negligence, but openly offering assistance in covering up an alleged crime is adding and abetting.   Obviously, there was no crime committed, as the “children” were undercover adults.  However, Mr. Dominguez would have us believe that freely offering to hide a fake crime means that Planned Parenthood would NEVER help hide a real one…right?

As a matter of fact, what the Live Action people have done in each case is to set up a confusing situation for the people on the video, forcing them to ask, “how should I act in this strange and rare situation?”  — and then, when they say things that are strange and rare, putting those videos on the Internet as if that’s how these people behave all the time.  It’s the same game that is played by the comedian Sacha Baron Cohen in Borat and Bruno. It may be entertaining, funny or weird, but it’s not a window onto the truth — and it has enormous potential to mislead.

Allow me to quote something from the 60’s, “if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.”  Our friends on the left often remind us that if we are not out there fighting a problem, we are condoning it by our silence.  How is this situation any different?  I’m not concerned with the motivation for the silence.  The silence is deafening all by itself.  They are condoning it in their lack of reporting it.

Additionally, are you suggesting that sexual abuse is rare?  I hate to tell, you, but it happens far more than most people think.  I think it would be terribly naïve to assume that these kids NEVER end up at Planned Parenthood.
