    Mary Kay Letourneau, who received national infamy after being convicted of raping her student and then later marrying him, has died at age 58, her attorney confirmed to KING 5 news. Letourneau died of stage 4 cancer, said her attorney David Gerke, who represented her on the case. In 1996, Letourneau, a sixth-grade teacher at Shorewood Elementary in Burien, was caught having sexual relations with Vili Fualaau, who was her student. Fualaau was 12-years-old at the time. The two got married in 2005 just after Letourneau was released from a seven-year prison sentence for having sex with a minor. Fualaau...

    It’s the Top Ten list no one wants to be on. Moments after the feds busted Ghislaine Maxwell Thursday for allegedly roping in underage girls for pal Jeffrey Epstein’s perverted pleasure, fireworks started going off in the lives of certain billionaires and playboys who palled around with the two. And not the happy Fourth of July kind. Since no one was closer to the billionaire pedophile than Maxwell, whose network spanned from New York to France, Israel, Buckingham Palace and the Caribbean, those in the know are undoubtedly fretting over the dirt she could dish to keep herself out of...

    After spending 13 months in an Australian prison, Cdl. George Pell is ready to publish a personal diary of his experiences, as well as his thoughts on the Church and the world. Pell, who spent much of his time in solitary confinement, is allowing Catholic publisher Ignatius Press to release his diary, which reportedly includes musings on his life in confinement, his legal case, the Catholic Church and his efforts at reform, as well as U.S. politics and sports. Ignatius Press told the Associated Press Saturday that the first installment of the 1,000-page diary will likely be published in spring...

    A shocking report out of Germany says that government agencies intentionally placed homeless children with a widespread and influential pedophile ring for decades. Starting in the 1970s psychology professor Helmut Kentler conducted his “experiment.” Homeless children in West Berlin were intentionally placed with pedophile men. These men would make especially loving foster parents, Kentler argued.A study conducted by the University of Hildesheim has found that authorities in Berlin condoned this practice for almost 30 years. The pedophile foster fathers even received a regular care allowance.Helmut Kentler (1928-2008) was in a leading position at Berlin’s center for educational research. He was...

    JK Rowling had been tweeting warm, gushing messages to children who submitted drawings for her new book –“Eight? How can this have been done by an eight-year-old?!” – when, abruptly, her Twitter feed took a sharp swerve sideways. She shared an article about period poverty in the developing world and Covid-19, tacking on her own, snarky take. “‘People who menstruate.’ I’m sure there used to be a word for those people. Someone help me out. Wumben? Wimpund? Woomud?” It was an odd way to launch the latest salvo in the most toxic of culture wars. If you failed to recognise...

  • Missouri boy escapes abusive home after parents forget to handcuff him to his bed, police say

    05/15/2020 5:30:49 PM PDT · by lowbridge · 36 replies ^ | May 15, 2020
    It began when a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper found the 12-year-old boy walking alone along Highway T just across the St. Charles County line on May 2. Bruises covered his face, legs and arms. When the trooper raised the child’s shirt, bruises dotted much of his torso, all in various stages of healing, according to court documents. The boy told the trooper he had just escaped from his house along Highway OO. He had packed a bag. And escaped only because his parents, Christopher Crets, 40, and Nicole Crets, 33, forgot to handcuff him to his bed that day,...
  • Britain's biggest Islamic authorities say child sexual abuse in Muslim communities is 'underreported' because young victims are too scared to tell anyone about it

    Britain’s biggest Islamic authorities believe that child sexual abuse within the Muslim community is “underreported” because it is a “taboo subject”. The Muslim Women’s Network (MWN) presented written testimony to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) stating that the “scale of the problem is hidden” because victims are “forced” into silence. The inquiry also received written testimony from the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) stating it thinks cases are “underreported… due to cultural issues and stigma”. All religious organizations are being investigated by IICSA, which was set up by the British government in 2014 following the Jimmy Savile...

    Anderson Cooper said Tuesday that he has decided to co-parent his new son with ex boyfriend Benjamin Maisani, and declared that his friends have become his family. The CNN host told Howard Stern on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show that he has remained close enough to his former flame, Benjamin Maisani, whom he dated for a decade, that he asked him to help raise Wyatt Morgan. “Don’t you want a clean break from this guy? I mean this was a guy, you were in love, you had a close relationship, why have him involved?” Stern, 66, asked. “I don’t really...

    [snip] Pediatricians across the country are sounding the alarm: The stress of unemployment and financial insecurity has strained relationships between children and those who care for them. The closures of schools and day cares have forced children closer to adults who may not be safe. In a world without school, doctors and advocates say, no one is there to watch, to speak up, until it’s too late. The American system of catching child abuse relies on kids venturing outside their homes. Year after year, most referrals to child protective services come from professionals — police officers, lawyers, doctors, anyone who...

    A man in a polyamorous relationship that consists of three men and one woman and was celebrated by the media has now been charged with abusing an infant.

One of the men in the unconventional relationship, Ethan Baucom, 22, from Jacksonville, has been charged with aggravated child abuse fracturing the 5-week-old baby’s arm, leg, ribs, and skull.

    Depression, suicidal thoughts and self-injury are common among U.S. transgender teens, new research shows. The study also found that hormone therapy leads to significant improvements in gender dysphoria -- the feeling of being uncomfortable with the gender they were assigned at birth. For the study, the researchers analyzed the medical records of 158 transgender teens treated at a pediatric endocrinology clinic between 2014 and 2019. The patients included 107 affirmed males (female to male), 47 affirmed females (male to female), and four who considered themselves non-binary. Affirmed gender is an individual's declared gender identity. Overall, 78.5 percent had a mental...

    Childhood should be filled with joy, hope, unconditional love, and acceptance. Tragically, however, far too many of our Nation’s young people spend this foundational time of their lives in fear, pain, and uncertainty, enduring abuse and neglect that threatens their health and well-being. During National Child Abuse Prevention Month, we condemn this horrific depravity and reaffirm our unwavering commitment to protecting our children and strengthening our families. Each year, hundreds of thousands of children across our country suffer from abuse and neglect, a fact that is both sobering and heart-wrenching. In January, I signed an Executive Order to coordinate the...

    We may be in the middle of quarantine during a pandemic, but the LGBT agenda never takes a break. This week, NBC introduced the new show Council of Dads, inspired by Bruce Feiler's best-selling memoir of the same name. According to Deadline, after Feiler was diagnosed with cancer he feared "what the absence of a father figure would do to the lives of his young twin daughters, he [Feiler] looked at his male friends and realized that there was no one person perfectly suited for the job. So he formed a Council of Dads, which consisted of six of his...
