    (CNN) -- A 6-year-old girl, detained in Arizona on suspicion of entering the United States illegally, is now at a shelter in El Paso, Texas, as authorities try to locate a relative. The girl, who told authorities she is from El Salvador, had to be moved to El Paso because there is no room in Arizona shelters for minors in her situation, said Jose Joaquin Chacon, the consul general for El Salvador in Arizona. The girl was traveling with her mother through Mexico, Chacon said, but for some unknown reason the mother apparently turned her daughter over to smugglers at...

    The 34-year-old man who was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail over the weekend on a sexual battery charge came into the country illegally four months before the rape, according to a federal complaint. In October 2011 Rosalio S. Sifuentes-Vazques, a citizen of Mexico, pleaded guilty to a federal charge of illegal re-entry. In December 2011, a federal judge sentenced him to one year and one day in a federal prison and one year of supervised released, according to court records.

    The Occupy movement's hatred for authority is well known. Last fall, Occupy Baltimore was condemned by the heads of three rape crisis centers after they published a pamphlet which seemed to discourage victims from reporting rape to police (preferring instead to handle such accusations as an internal matter). In a similar move last week, a group calling itself Occupy Patriarchy protested a conference against child sex trafficking and suggested that "minors" involved in the "sex industry" would be better off without the intervention of police.

    KDKA (Pittsburgh) ^ | June 11, 2012
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Documents filed by the Attorney General’s office indicate new evidence has been uncovered against several former Penn State officials, including Graham Spanier and Gary Schultz. In documents obtained by KDKA-TV investigators, the Attorney General’s Office indicates former vice president Schultz kept a secret file with allegations regarding Sandusky and sex abuse. This comes after an NBC report alleges Spanier did not report alleged abuse because it would be humane to Sandusky to not report the matter. “Only recently was the commonwealth provided with a file containing documents relating to incidents involving Sandusky,” a statement from the Attorney...

    National Review ^ | June 10, 2012 6:00 P.M. | By Charles C. W. Cooke
    In his new Social Science Journal study...Mark Regnerus set out to answer the question of whether children who have parents in a same-sex relationship experience disadvantages when compared with children raised by their biological, married parents. The answer, contra the zeitgeist, appears to be a resounding yes. Children with a parent in a same-sex relationship “underperform” in almost every category. Some of these differences may be relatively benign — whether one voted in the last presidential election, for example — but most are decidedly not. One deficit is particularly worrying: Less than 2 percent of children from intact, biological families...

    Investigators have busted a child pornography ring spread across the U.S. and Europe that produced and distributed sexually explicit images of babies and toddlers online, federal prosecutors in Indianapolis said Thursday. The “most prolific producer of child pornography” in the group was 26-year-old David Bostic of Bloomington, Assistant U.S. Attorney Brant Cook said. Bostic persuaded parents to allow him to babysit and, thus entrusted, abused the children without their knowledge, Assistant U.S. Attorney Steve DeBrota said. Bostic was arrested in November 2010 after federal, state and local investigators raided his home in Bloomington, uncovering hundreds of pictures and videos...

According to police, Darlene Hart, 42, took her middle school daughter to Antelope Park to fight another middle school student, Espie Duran, CBS Sacramento reported. In a video of the horrifying incident, she can be heard cheering her on. “That’s right, go get her,” Hart is heard saying as her daughter claws at her classmate. “That’s right. That’s right.” The fight was broken up after about 90 seconds by a family friend, according to the report...

    WARSAW, Poland -- Hundreds of gays, lesbians and their supporters marched Saturday through the capitals of Poland and Latvia, demanding more rights in Eastern European societies where they still face high levels of intolerance. The parades were supported by the governments of the United States and other Western countries who are pushing for an end to discrimination and violence toward gays. . . In Riga, U.S. diplomats took part to show their support. They said U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has asked American officials to be more active in promoting equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people...

    In this small Mexican town that sends sex slaves to New York, little boys dream of growing up to be pimps. Gaudy gabled houses that rise above gated walls are proof of the profits to be made from funneling “delivery girls” to Roosevelt Ave. in Queens. An annual parade of pimps in plumed hats — wielding whips to settle business beefs — is evidence that cash and fear has conquered shame here. “Many kids aspire to be traffickers,” said Emilio Munoz Berruecos, who grew up in the next village and runs a local human rights center. “This is a phenomenon...

    Do you believe that parents should be able to spank their children? Do you ever express that opinion to others? If so, then you could be sent to prison. Sadly, that is exactly what happened to one pastor up in Wisconsin recently. A minister named Philip Caminiti was sentenced to 2 years in prison for simply teaching that parents should spank their children when they misbehave. Please note that Caminiti was not accused of spanking anyone or of physically hurting anyone. He was put in prison simply for his speech. He was put in prison simply for what he was...

  • Child is transgender at age 5 (super sick society, permissive parents Barf alert!)

    Kathryn wanted pants. And short hair. Then trucks and swords. Her parents, Jean and Stephen, were fine with their toddler’s embrace of all things boy. They’ve both been schoolteachers and coaches in Maryland and are pretty immune to the quirky stuff that kids do. But it kept getting more intense, all this boyishness from their younger daughter. She began to argue vehemently — as only a tantrum-prone toddler can — that she was not a girl. “I am a boy,” the child insisted, at just 2 years old. And that made Jean uneasy. It was weird. “I am a boy”...

    The first shock came when Mordechai Jungreis learned that his mentally disabled teenage son was being molested in a Jewish ritual bathhouse in Brooklyn. The second came after Mr. Jungreis complained, and the man accused of the abuse was arrested. Old friends started walking stonily past him and his family on the streets of Williamsburg. Their landlord kicked them out of their apartment. Anonymous messages filled their answering machine, cursing Mr. Jungreis for turning in a fellow Jew. And, he said, the mother of a child in a wheelchair confronted Mr. Jungreis’s mother-in-law, saying the same man had molested her...

    One of the men accused in last month's kidnapping that police say has ties to the Gulf Cartel was arrested by Brownsville police this weekend for allegedly molesting a child. Brownsville police spokesman J.J. Trevino said police brought Hector Primitivo Salinas, 39, of Brownsville, from the Cameron County jail to the city jail Friday after investigators determined he was wanted in connection with an incident reported in February. A 9-year-old girl told a teacher in February that Salinas touched her inappropriately. Police declined to release the girl's relationship with Salinas or the circumstances surrounding her contact with him. The school...

    Authorities say a Washington mother repeatedly put bleach into her toddler daughter's eyes, causing permanent vision loss in child's right eye, Q13 Fox reports. 29-year-old Jennifer Mothershead pled not guilty to charges of first-degree child assault Monday. Authorities say Mothershead was given antibiotics and eye drops in March 2011 for her toddler daughter after the child came to a local hospital with an eye issue. Mothershead told doctors her daughter had scratched her eye while playing in a barn, according to Q13 Fox. Authorities claim Mothershead's then-14-month-old daughter was airlifted to the hospital with a serious head injury in May...

    Enlarge Image Early damage. Telomeres (red) are shorter in children who have been abused. Credit: Pasleka/Photo Researchers Inc. Traumatic experiences in early life can leave emotional scars. But a new study suggests that violence in childhood may leave a genetic mark as well. Researchers have found that children who are physically abused and bullied tend to have shorter telomeres—structures at the tips of chromosomes whose shrinkage has been linked to aging and disease. Telomeres prevent DNA strands from unravelling, much like the plastic aglets on a shoelace. When cells divide, these structures grow shorter, limiting the number of times...
