Today in “Legitimate Rape” 4: s who assaulted 16-year-old thought it would be ‘funny’

Two Catholic school athletes who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 16-year-old told police they did it because they thought it would be “funny,” according to court records released under a Jefferson County judge’s order.

After Dietrich initially complained about the plea deal the two teens received, Paul Richwalsky, chief prosecutor in the juvenile court division of the county attorney’s office, told her “Get over it and see a therapist. … The jail was for ‘real’ rapists, murderers and robbers,” according to an affidavit released Thursday.

The teen boys pleaded guilty to charges of first-degree sexual abuse, a felony, and misdemeanor voyeurism as part of the plea agreement. They are required to do 50 hours of volunteer work.

They said they lifted her shirt, pulled down her pants and penetrated her vagina with their fingers because, according to one of the teens, “we thought it would be funny, but it wasn’t.”

They said they took two or three pictures each, put Dietrich’s clothes back on and carried her upstairs to her room. Numerous other teenagers told police that the teens showed them the pictures, according to police reports.

Today in “Legitimate Rape” 3: Woman shoots and DECAPITATES rapist who made her pregnant before dumping his severed head in village square

A pregnant rape victim in Turkey shot and decapitated her attacker then left his severed head in the square of her local village.

The woman, five months pregnant, is demanding authorities let her have an abortion. The rapist had taken nude photos of her and threatened to send them to her parents unless she continued sleeping with him.

She took a gun and shot him ten times, several times in his private parts, before cutting off his head and hurling it into the village square at Yalvac. When police arrested her near to the severed head she said; ‘That is the head of one who toyed with my honor.’

Today in “Legitimate Rape” 2: Texas town says girl, 11, who was ‘gang raped was responsible because she was wearing makeup and looked older than her age’

Though a jury found Eric McGowen guilty of horrifically gang-raping an 11-year-old girl, the small Texas community of Cleveland remains divided on the rape – some residents have suggested the girl was partly responsible because of her appearance, sparking widespread condemnation.

Caroline King, who lives down the street, insisted Friday that people still ‘don’t know the facts of the case’ and said authorities were just ‘harassing people’ by knocking on doors in the town of about 7,700 people as they searched for McGowen.
It’s not as bad as what they are saying. Nobody tied (the girl) up,” said King, 59.

Today in “Legitimate” Rape 1: Judge to Woman Sexually Assaulted by Cop: “If you wouldn’t have been there that night, none of this would have happened to you.”

Last summer, a drunk Arizona police officer named Robb Gary Evans drove himself to a bar, flashed his badge to avoid paying cover at the door, and then walked up behind a woman, put his hand up her skirt, and ran his fingers over her genitals. A jury convicted him of sexual abuse, a felony with a maximum sentence of 2 and a half years in prison, and Evans was fired from the police force after an internal investigation.

Nevertheless, Arizona trial Judge Jacqueline Hatch, who was appointed to the bench by Gov. Jan Brewer (R-AZ), decided that Evans’ actions did not warrant jail time — sentencing him probation and 100 hours of community service. Evans also will not have to register as a sex offender. Yet, while Judge Hatch apparently did not view the disgraced former cop’s actions as particularly serious, she had some very harsh words for the woman he assaulted:

Bad things can happen in bars, Hatch told the victim, adding that other people might be more intoxicated than she was.

If you wouldn’t have been there that night, none of this would have happened to you,” Hatch said.

Dumbest Quote of the Week: Pastor says prayer team sent Isaac away from RNC

 A Tampa Bay pastor told the Christian Broadcasting Network her team prayed Tropical Storm Isaac away from the Republican National Convention.

The Rev. Jesten Peters of Keys of Authority Ministries told the Christian Broadcasting Network, “We have had lots and lots of people praying around the clock that it would move, and after you watch from the very beginning where they were saying it was coming and now where they say it is going, then it has really moved out of the way for us and we appreciate God doing that and moving it for us.”

Doug: If their prayers work THIS well… why wouldn’t they put this kind of effort into world peace or curing cancer or ending hunger and poverty?

 And let me see if I have this straight… God can steer a hurricane away from a political convention – but instead of just making it just die out or sending it out to sea and not hurting anybody – he sends it further down the coast and wreaks havoc on the same area and people he did 7 years ago. God seems to be ignoring that whole “love your neighbor as yourself” thing his son went on about. In short… God doesn’t sound like a very good Christian.

New Denny’s in Vegas to include wedding chapel

Denny’s says its newest 24-hour diner in Las Vegas will feature a full bar and a wedding chapel.

The restaurant announced Thursday that it plans to open a flagship diner by the end of the year in downtown Las Vegas’ Neonopolis shopping complex.

The 6,400-square-foot eatery will include an interactive photo booth where patrons can take their photos with Vegas-themed props and share them on social media sites.

The restaurant will also offer a range of wedding packages at its on-site chapel, some including wedding cakes made of Denny’s Pancake Puppies.

Doug: Marriage: a sacred institution. Now with hash browns. So on the one hand you have Denny’s food. On the other hand you have marriage. Either way you’re going to walk away feeling nauseated. And yes, ladies… I’m still single.

Aurora Massacre Joke (Made Before Son of Victim) May Get Professor Fired

A tenured humanities professor at a United States Service academy on Long Island has been suspended with pay and faces the possibility of termination in the aftermath of an Aurora massacre joke he made during class.

According to an internal personnel document obtained by the New York Times, Prof. Gregory F. Sullivan had put on a documentary and was about to leave the room when he turned to the class and said, “If someone with orange hair appears in the corner of the room, run for the exit.”

The matter would likely be less serious were it not for the fact that one of Prof. Sullivan’s students at the United States Merchant Marine Academy happens to be the son of a man killed during the movie theater shooting that left 12 people dead and 58 wounded.

In his “notice of proposed removal” to Prof. Sullivan, the academy’s dean called the joke “notoriously disgraceful” and insisted the professor should have known better given that he was made aware of the reason for the student’s recent absence.

Sparks moviegoer shoots himself in buttocks, apologizes, leaves theater

A 56-year-old man accidentally shot himself in the buttocks inside the Century 14 movie theaters in downtown Sparks on Tuesday night when a gun he had brought into the cinema discharged, police dispatch said.

The man immediately got up, apologized to those around him and left the theater before police arrived, police said. He later was found at a Reno hospital where he was being treated for a wound not considered life-threatening.

Doug: It’s good to know that if a mass killer opened fire in the theater, this hero could have been there to return fire and shoot himself.

Nipple Wars?


The hotly debated practice of breastfeeding beyond infancy has earned itself a close-up investigation as part of a new reality television show.

Extreme Parenting will look at a range of America’s kookiest parenting rituals, shedding a spotlight further on the much-hyped arguments for and against weaning your child after the age of one.

The show, created by the team behind Bridezillas and Dance Moms, picks up where Jamie Lynne Grumet left off in the debate when she graced the cover of Time magazine with her four-year-old son latched onto her breast.

Doug: I wonder what they’re gonna’ call it?

Nipple wars?
Jugrats?
The Real Breasts of Orange County?
Nipplicious: The Series?

Can we all agree not everything needs to be turned into a reality show? As well… if your kid is old enough to ask for a cookie to go with his milk? Time to knock him off the titty!

Moses Shepard Gets Prison Time for Turning One Date Into 18 Years of Stalking

When did Tucson resident Moses Antonio Shepard’s chasing of a woman turn into an interstate stalking case? According to the federal government, some point before the 18-year mark.

Shepard was sentenced yesterday to 100 months in prison, as the 19th anniversary of his one and only date with his victim comes in September.

According to federal court documents, Shepard followed the woman back-and-forth across the country since getting rejected for a second date in New York in the early ’90s.

While in New York, he’d call her late at night and hang up the phone. He’d go to where she worked, went to school, got on the subway, and where she lived. He mailed her a photocopy of her high school yearbook photo. Once, the woman answered the door to her apartment, and Shepard grabbed her arm to try to get inside — which he didn’t manage to do.

Jerry Sandusky found guilty

Tonight, former defensive coordinator for Penn State, Jerry Sandusky learned he was going from Penn State to the State Pen. It’s getting harder to tell the sports coaches from the Catholic priests, isn’t it? In fact, shortly after the Sanduskyverdict was delivered, a local priest remarked, “So now they’ll just move him to another school, right?”

But Sandusky is indeed going down – and not with a 12 year old for once.

And in a related story, the City Council of Sandusky, Ohio voted 11-2 to change the name of their city from Sandusky, Ohio to “Honestly, we never even met the bastard, Ohio.”

Niagara Falls – Wallenda doesn’t

When I first came to the United States, my first gig was the Texas Shrine Circus dates – my very first circus. I was honored to work with Terry and Delilah Wallenda, direct descendants of the famous Flying Wallendas (Delilah was Karl Wallenda’s Granddaughter). At the time, their son, Nik, was just a little squirt -all of 8 years old.

Well… tonight that “squirt” became the first person to walk across Niagara Falls on a tightrope. Last time I saw Nik, he was – as they say – knee high to a grasshopper. Tonight, he snatched the proverbial pebble from Mother Nature’s hand. And if you watch the video, he was talking to the media covering his walk WHILE HE WAS WALKING! Congratulations, Nik. Beyond incredible. I can only imagine how proud your Mom and Dad (Terry and Delilah) must be at this moment. I share that pride and I can only hope all of America does as well. (I have a strong feeling they do.)

CDC denies rumors of zombie apocalypse

A man in Miami chews the face off another man, allegedly while under some kind of drug-induced psychosis.

Another man in New Jersey goes insane and slices his belly open, then throws his own intestines at police.

Yet another man in Maryland admits to eating his roommate’s heart and brain.

A Canadian snuff film actor admits to murdering, dismembering, raping and eating a young victim, mails body parts to political parties, then goes on the run.

Finally, doctors take it upon themselves to calm a panicked public as the media hyperventilates over a Georgia woman whose leg had to be amputated to stop the spread of flesh-eating bacteria, now known to infect thousands of Americans every year. As if this bloody chaos weren’t bizarre enough, it gets weirder still: All of these events happened in the same week.

Naturally, the Internet wants to know: is “The Zombie Apocalypse” finally happening? According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the answer to that question is officially no.

Now… Stores across the U.S., including in Metro Detroit, are getting in on the undead action by selling Zombie Bullets?!

Artist turns dead pet into flying helicopter

Many animal lovers find it hard to part with their pets when they die.

So when cat Orville, named after the famous aviator Orville Wright, was run over by a car, his artist owner decided to turn him into a permanent piece of artwork as the ultimate tribute by transforming him into a flying helicopter.

Dutch artist Bart Jansen first stuffed Orville before teaming up with radio control helicopter flyer Arjen Beltman to build a specially-designed flying mechanism to attach to the cat.

Jansen said the Orvillecopter is ‘half cat, half machine’, and part of a visual art project to pay tribute to his cat Orville. Click here for video.

Octomom’s Been BUSY!

First, she just finished her first “porn” movie.

“My first shoot was amazing,” Nadya said. “Such a learning experience for me in so many ways. I don’t think I could have asked for a better crew to work with. They were so patient and willing to teach me. I owe a lot to Wicked Pictures contract star Jessica Drake; she opened my eyes to a whole different world of self-pleasure that I could have never imagined. They made me look so glamorous, and for the first time in my life, I felt beautiful and sexy. I’m very excited for it to come out!”

(Doug: Spoken like a woman who’s given birth to 14 children. And wait ’til you hear about the photo shoot that accompanied the film.)

Nadya also posed for a set of photographs in which she’s seated at the head of a long table, ” her body covered with SpaghettiOs. “For the pictures, we had her topless with a thick sparkly red choker with a big red heart in front and red and white polka dot panties … like 1950s style,” an insider tells me. “SpaghettiOs were all over her body and she’s even throwing the SpaghettiOs toward the camera. The label on the can was changed from SpaghettiOs to say ‘Saucy Octos.’”

Now, she’s about to start a part-time career as a stripper.

Toddler’s ‘Ain’t No Homos Gonna Make it to Heaven’ Song Puts Church on Lockdown – Pastor Gets Death Threats

Members of an Indiana church say they’ve been flooded with death threats since video of a 3-year-old proudly singing, “Ain’t no homos gonna make it to heaven” … was posted on the Internet.

Multiple members of the Apostolic Truth Tabernacle Church in Greensburg, Indiana tell TMZ the church office has been getting harassing calls and the pastor has received death threats at his home. They also say a prayer meeting scheduled for this evening at church had to be moved to a secret location.

Despite the threats, all the members we spoke to have no regrets about the song getting posted online — in fact one said, “The people who are upset just don’t read the word of God. If we don’t teach the children the truth early they will never learn.”

As for the thunderous applause after the hate-filled song — we’re told, “Of course we applauded a child who is singing a song about God.”

Brian Banks, CA Football Player, Exonerated Of Rape Charges After Over 5 Years In Prison

A former high school football star whose dreams of a pro career were shattered by a rape conviction burst into tears Thursday as a judge threw out the charge that sent him to prison for more than five years. Brian Banks, now 26, pleaded no contest 10 years ago on the advice of his lawyer after a childhood friend falsely accused him of attacking her on their high school campus.

In a strange turn of events, the woman, Wanetta Gibson, friended him on Facebook when he got out of prison. During an initial meeting with him, she said she had lied; there had been no kidnap and no rape and she offered to help him clear his record, court records state. But she refused to repeat the story to prosecutors because she feared she would have to return a $1.5 million payment from a civil suit brought by her mother against Long Beach schools.

During a second meeting that was secretly videotaped, she told Banks, “`I will go through with helping you, but it’s like at the same time all that money they gave us, I mean gave me, I don’t want to have to pay it back,’” according to Freddie Parish, a defense investigator who was at the meeting. It was uncertain whether Gibson will have to return the money and unlikely she would be prosecuted for making the false accusation so long ago, when she was 15.

Doug: And to think there are so many sick, deserving people who need the organs she is wasting.

Charles L. Worley, North Carolina Pastor: Put Gays And Lesbians In Electrified Pen To Kill Them Off

The barrage of anti-gay sermons delivered by North Carolina-based pastors to hit the blogosphere continues with yet another disturbing rant caught on tape.

The pastor, identified on YouTube as Charles L. Worley of Providence Road Baptist Church in Maiden, N.C., condemns President Obama’s much-publicized endorsement of same-sex marriage while calling for gays and lesbians to be put in an electrified pen and ultimately killed off.

“Build a great, big, large fence — 150 or 100 mile long — put all the lesbians in there,” Worley suggests in the clip, reportedly filmed on May 13. He continues: “Do the same thing for the queers and the homosexuals and have that fence electrified so they can’t get out…and you know what, in a few years, they’ll die out…do you know why? They can’t reproduce!”

North Carolina Newspaper Prints Klan Rally Flyer On Page One

The Statesville Record & Landmark, a North Carolina newspaper, greeted readers this morning with the news of a KKK rally being held in the North Iredell County area this weekend. It was the headline news in a town of 24,633. According to the flyer that they printed on the front page (mercifully blocking out the contact information) the rally is to be held in a neighboring town, with the sickly ironic name of ‘Harmony.’

The flyer, and subsequently the front page of the newspaper, promises “Free Admition (sic)” and “Free Onsite Camping.” They’ll be food and drink vendors, souvenirs and of course, a cross burning.

Perhaps unnecessarily, it also adds the proviso, “White People Only.”

Legion of Christ Rocked By More Sex Charges


A prominent American priest in the Legionaries of Christ, a troubled Catholic order whose founder was denounced by the Vatican for sexual improprieties, has admitted having a sexual relationship with a woman and fathering her child.

Father Thomas Williams, who has appeared on CBS and NBC and was interviewed by ABC News for a 2010 report on the Legion, made the acknowledgement after an activist who had sought reform in the order contacted the Vatican with his suspicions.

Williams said “A number of years ago I had a relationship with a woman and fathered her child. I am deeply sorry for this grave transgression and have tried to make amends. . . . I am truly sorry to everyone who is hurt by this revelation, and I ask for your prayers as I seek guidance on how to make up for my errors.”

Doug: Wait! He had an affair with a woman? Promote this man to Pope!

Board: Salt Lake police touched prostitution suspects


The detective was on his back. The prostitute was above him. “I kissed her breasts and nipples, as there was no place for my face to go,” the undercover detective wrote in his report of a 2011 vice sting.

The Salt Lake City Civilian Review Board said there was some place else for his face to go. The review board also said the hands of some Salt Lake City police officers went places they shouldn’t.

Saggy Pants Ban Dies

A bill banning saggy pants is dead. The Alabama Senate killed the legislation, after lawmakers voiced concerns that the law would be difficult to enforce. It was a local law, that would have applied only to Montgomery County.

The bill’s sponsor, state Rep. Alvin Holmes (D-Montgomery) says he intends to bring the bill back next year. Holmes says he finds it disrespectful when people wear their pants so low, that their underwear is exposed for all to see.

Doug: Why hasn’t anyone told these low-pants-wearing assclowns that they look really stupid like this?

Hef’s Ex-fiance: How to Bag a Rich Older Man

The 26-year-old ex-fiancée of Hugh Hefner, 86, says she gathered a few pearls of wisdom during her time as the Playboy founder’s soon-to-be wife.

Crystal Harris’ tips for dating an older man

 1. Don’t try and change them – “Older men are usually set in their ways, so if you don’t like the way he is, then that’s too bad, you’re not going to change him.”

 2. Be a good listener – “Hef had the most amazing stories, take it all in.”

 3. Keep things fun – “Take them to new places and try to get them to eat different things, like sushi.”

Doug: How about 1) show up naked and bring beer; 2) Remove the phrase “I won’t do that” from your vocabulary; and 3) Smile and try not to gag.

“I’ve just concluded that, for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married,” Obama told ABC’s Good Morning America.

After years of what he had called an “evolving” view of the issues, Obama said family and friends gradually persuaded him that gay and lesbian couples should be treated the same as heterosexual ones.

Trayvon Martin gun range targets sold online

An unidentified entrepreneur admits he is trying to profit off Trayvon Martin’s death by selling gun range targets featuring the teen who’s death has sparked a nationwide controversy.

Although Martin’s face does not appear on the paper targets, they feature a hoodie with crosshairs aimed at the chest. A bag of Skittles is tucked in the pocket and a hand is holding a can resembling iced tea.

Martin purchased both items minutes before he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in February, according to police. Zimmerman, who has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder charges, originally told investigators he shot Martin in self-defense.

According to an advertisement for the targets that had been posted on a popular firearms auction website, the sellers stated they “support Zimmerman and believe he is innocent and that he shot a thug.”

Another testicle ticket written in South Carolina

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — For the second time in a year, a motorist has been ticketed in South Carolina for displaying a replica of testicles on a vehicle.

A Spartanburg County sheriff’s deputy stopped a truck Sunday evening after noticing the “anatomically correct” display on the rear bumper. The incident report says the driver removed the display after being stopped but he was arrested for driving without a license. He was also given a warning ticket for having an obscene display.

Last July, a Berkeley County woman was ticketed for having a similar display on the back of her truck.

That case is to go to trial in municipal court in the town of Bonneau. That trial has been delayed three times and no new trial date has been set.

Spirit Airlines’ final answer to dying Vietnam vet seeking ticket refund: No

After a weekend of brutal publicity over its refusal to grant a dying Vietnam vet a $197 ticket refund because his doctor forbids him to fly, Spirit Airlines issued a simple response:

“No.”

The update from company spokeswoman Misty Pinson, when asked Monday if the company had reconsidered, appears to have grounded any hope that Jerry Meekins, 76, of Clearwater, Fla., might get his money back. Meekins bought the ticket to Atlantic City last month so he could see his daughter before she had surgery of her own. But when his esophageal cancer left his immune system too ravaged for travel, all the airline offered him was another ticket.
