After page 3 of Infanticide 333 for the past 3 months
Infanticide before WW III
The following notes and articles, sad facts and shocking stories come from a 3 month
period of time in the FALL of 2006...while the world rocks politically seems so many
work to destroy childhood in these United States of America...Meanwhile back at the ranch...
During the months of August and September, while I am working on my two music documentaries, setting in a hotel room with the TV on constantly going from Fox to CNN news, and at the same time the news about the wars and the new nuclear fears and threats from Iran and Korea, I am reading about the increase in violence against children. I can not help but wonder if there is not some colliery between the two...like the fall of Rome...Sodom and Gomorrah. Are we in these end times lashing out at our fear of the future and trying to kill what once represented our future...our children?
Is this like the "Middle Cage" in Robert Audrey's the Social Contract, an animalistic reaction to stress and we lash out and kill our own future in this insane manner? Hell, what do I know? I have researched the state and fate of children in this country since 1969, now 37 years, for what that is worth. It never,
never, never gets better and only gets worse, and some years the worse seems to be ten-fold. The past few years seems that violence against children is now in a strange sick way...
Satan, in his hatred for God, has done his best to distort and destroy both of the institutions that God had instituted. To destroy the holy marriage relationship, Satan encouraged people to engage in any form of sexual immorality that would pervert what God had created to be beautiful. This included adultery (sex between a man and woman that are not married, incest (sex between close family members, either by blood or marriage), homosexual encounters (sex between members of the same sex), sex with animals, easy divorce, rape and others, all damaging to the institutions of marriage and the family. To encourage this debasement, demonic agencies in their attempt to be worshipped through various pagan religions, encouraged sexually immoral acts (including heterosexual and homosexual prostitution) as part of idol worship.
In the worship of Ishtar (originally pronounced Easter). fetuses aborted from pregnancies brought about through these "acts of worship" were offered to the goddess. Often when a pagan nation conquered another, they ripped open the pregnant women to offer their fetuses to their god. Baby sons and daughters were offered to the god, Molech, being burned or passing through the fire while loud banging music covered the cries of the babes. God decried and detested all such practices. They were an abomination to Him.
Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) is a serious medical diagnosis comprising of a range of signs and symptoms resulting from the violent shaking of an infant or young child, with or without impact to the head. Signs and symptoms may include such conditions as lethargy, seizures, bruising, vomiting, unresponsiveness and death.1 Often, there can be no external evidence of injury or trauma.
Police say missing Vt. 12-year-old's body found
Wed Jul 2, 7:28 PM ET
The body of a missing 12-year-old whose uncle allegedly planned to force her into a sex ring the day she disappeared was found Wednesday in Randolph, not far from his house.
State Police Director Col. James Baker said Brooke Bennett's body was found about 4:45 p.m. and her family had been notified.
The uncle, Michael Jacques, has been in custody since Sunday on charges of aggravated sexual assault against a different underage girl. He has pleaded not guilty.
Brooke was last seen alive with the uncle, Michael Jacques, at a convenience store a week ago.
"The painful discovery of Brooke's body today is tragic and heartbreaking," Baker said at a news conference.
He called the death "clearly suspicious" but declined to give details before a planned briefing Thursday morning.
But in an affidavit unsealed earlier in U.S. District Court in Burlington, the FBI said an unidentified teenager told investigators she was present on June 25 when Jacques, 42, tricked Brooke into thinking she was going to a party and took her to his Randolph home to be initiated into a sex ring.
The girl said she was led to believe that Brooke would "would have sex with adult males" during the initiation.
After the three got to Jacques' home, the girl said she and Brooke watched television for a while before Jacques told her to leave and took his niece upstairs. The witness, who is 14, said she left the house with her boyfriend and did not see Brooke again.
The 14-year-old said she herself had been having sex with Jacques, 42, since she was 9 as part of the sex ring.
Brooke's former stepfather, Raymond Gagnon, appeared in federal court Wednesday on an obstruction of justice charge in the case. He was denied bail and was held pending another hearing on Monday.
Police say Gagnon, 40, lives in Texas but often visited Vermont. According to the affidavit, he told police he accessed Brooke's MySpace page from a laptop computer at his home in San Antonio after getting login information from Jacques.
Police said they have evidence that postings to the account were altered to make it appear that Brooke had discussed a secret rendevous with someone identified as "Skittlemeup" shortly before she disappeared.
At first, state police called it a MySpace case, believing that Brooke had met with someone she had befriended online and then lied to her family about her plans that day to meet a friend in Randolph and visit a hospitalized relative of that friend.
Now prosecutors say it was Jacques who provided police the story about the meeting and that he and Juvenile 1 picked Brooke up in Randolph and took her to Jacques' home. Jacques also found one of Brooke's shoes near a small lake in Brookfield and planted pieces of her clothing nearby that were later found by police, investigators said.
E-mails in the court documents released Thursday described how Juvenile 1 helped Jacques plant some of the false evidence, prosecutors said. Jacques coached Juvenile 1 on obtaining and preserving semen from her boyfriend to be placed on a pair of Brooke's underwear, to throw investigators off the trail.
Jacques has a history of sex crimes dating to 1985 when he was charged with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl about 100 times. Prosecutors eventually dismissed that case.
In 1993, Jacques was convicted of aggravated sexual assault and kidnapping. An affidavit in the case said Jacques tied up the victim and threatened to kill her while he sexually assaulted her.
He was sentenced to six to 20-years in prison, but he was released early because of the Department of Corrections' "good time" policy in effect at the time.
Brooke's father Jim Bennett and her stepmother Janet said they knew of Jacques' history as a sex offender, but he never saw any signs of trouble when Brooke and her uncle were together at family gatherings.
"That's not something you tell a little girl," Janet Bennett told the Valley News of Lebanon, N.H. "She was just a beautiful little girl."
Jim Bennett said parents needed to keep a close eye on their children, even around family because, "It's not just strangers you've got to watch out for."

The following story is in the news daily. They keep talking about the pages, I call two Senator's office and ask, "Who put this man on the Caucus For Missing and Exploited Children?"

Exclusive: The Sexually Explicit Internet Messages That Led to Fla. Rep. Foley's Resignation
September 29, 2006
Florida Rep. Mark Foley's resignation came just hours after ABC News questioned the congressman about a series of sexually explicit instant messages involving congressional pages, high school students who are under 18 years of age.
In Congress, Rep. Foley (R-FL) was part of the Republican leadership and the chairman of the House caucus on missing and exploited children.
He crusaded for tough laws against those who used the Internet for sexual exploitation of children. (THE FAT SICK FOX WATCHES THE HEN HOUSE...mine)
They say he used the screen name Maf54 on these messages provided to ABC News
Maf54: I miss you
The exchange continues in which Foley and the teen both appear to describe having sexual orgasms.
Maf54: ok..i better go vote..did you know you would
have this effect on me
According to another message, Foley also invites the teen and a friend to come to his house near
Capitol Hill so they can drink alcohol.
Teen: are you going to be in town over the
veterans day weekend
Maf54: we will be adjourned ny then
The language gets much more graphic, too graphic to be broadcast, and at one point the congressman appears to be describing Internet sex.
In Congress, Rep. Foley (R-FL) was part of the Republican leadership and the chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children. How did so many of the people in congress know that this man was GAY, and I don't mind calling him Queer because of what he did...Fuck POLITICALLY CORRECT...How did so many still let him serve as the head of this committee. This seems a huge huge oversite, or just more of the same behavior of the higher ups in the Catholic Church when they just let em lie...sin of the fathers...
My God these are the Republicans, and they are the ones who put up the front of family values. I don't care if they knew or did not know about the emails to the pages...just the fact that it is known that he was gay should have been enough to keep him miles away from this committee. Yet, NOBODY on all the news stories even talks about this matter of fact. Not one news man or politician questions how did he even know
We already know that pedophiles try to seek out places that children are...boy scouts, schools, alter boys, and we find this Congressional Queer hanging not only with the pages, but head of a children committee. WHO PUT HIM ON THAT COMMITTEE????
This rings so much of how the Catholic guarded and protected the Queer Fagot Fathers...even the man today that is the Pope was overseeing this degradation and doings of the secret order of sexual perverts in black robes...dear God.
Foley e-mails 1st reported in fall '05
By DEVLIN BARRETT, Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Rep. Thomas Reynolds, head of the House Republican election effort, said Saturday he told Speaker
Dennis Hastert months ago about concerns that a fellow GOP lawmaker had sent inappropriate messages to a teenage boy. Hastert's office said aides referred the matter to the proper authorities last fall but they were only told the messages were "over-friendly."
Reynolds, R-N.Y., was told about e-mails sent by Rep. Mark Foley and is now defending himself from Democratic accusations that he did too little. Foley, R-Fla., resigned Friday after ABC News questioned him about the e-mails to a former congressional page and about sexually suggestive instant messages to other pages.
The boy who received the e-mails was 16 in the summer of 2005 when he worked in Congress as a page. After the boy returned to his Louisiana home, the congressman e-mailed him. The teenager thought the messages were inappropriate, particularly one in which Foley asked the teen to send a picture of himself.
REPORTS THAT SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE KNEW ABOUT THE SEXUAL EMAILS AND SWEPT UNDER THE RUG. I am getting the Catholic Priest cover-up feeling. In my book and a fact that I will never forget years ago I was at a hearing at the Texas State Capitol on child pornography and the guy said hard to stop in that the porn is going to upstanding citizens, judges, people in position of power...THIS IS ONE BIG FAT FOX AT THE HEN (PAGE) HOUSE.
They report that he was attending all events where there were pages...STALKING if you ask me...now say known he was a closet republican homosexual begins to leak out. BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER...and his boys watch over his behavior just like the Pope and the Church watched over the butt fucking Fathers.
I think when you are dealing with children "smoke" should mean FIRE. It is even sick that these other Congress men are saying that the original emails not being inappropriate. Give me a break...this is a cover for behavior that they have in their own closet it sounds like to me. All the statements are our of character. How could any of them be swept under the rug...same feeling as the sick judge that lets off the pedophile because he is one himself. BIRDS OF A FEATHER...AND FAT FOXES WATCHING THE LITTLE BOYS IN THE PAGE HOUSE...
SO WHILE THIS IS ALL GOING ON IN THE NEWS...THE NEWS IS THAT IN LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Former JonBenet Ramsey murder suspect John Mark Karr was cleared of child pornography charges after prosecutors said they did not have enough evidence to go ahead with a trial, reports said.
Prosecutors at the Sonoma Supreme Court in northern California said the charges would have to be dropped after they decided they could not prove the 41-year-old had used a computer pivotal to the case, several media outlets reported.
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Disgraced former Rep. Mark Foley said through his lawyer Tuesday that he was sexually abused by a clergyman as a teenager, but accepts full responsibility for sending salacious computer messages to teenage male pages.
Attorney David Roth said Foley was molested between ages 13 and 15. He declined to identify the clergyman or the church, but Foley is Roman Catholic.
He also acknowledged for the first time that the former congressman is gay, saying the disclosure was part of his client's "recovery."
Priest tells of Foley relationship
Then-altar boy may have found some things inappropriate
A Catholic priest told the Herald-Tribune on Wednesday about an intimate two-year relationship he had with former U.S. Rep. Mark Foley when the congressman was a teenage altar boy living in Lake Worth.
From his home on the island of Gozo, near Italy, Anthony Mercieca described a series of encounters that he said Foley might perceive as sexually inappropriate.
Among them: massaging Foley while the boy was naked, skinny-dipping together at a secluded lake in Lake Worth and being naked in the same room on overnight trips.
One night, when Mercieca says he was in a drug-induced stupor, there was an incident he says he can't clearly remember that might have gone too far.
I QUESTION IF AS THE NEWS IS SAYING...and so many journalist I have seen on TV say that it was well known fact that for years Foley was known to be homosexual...AND I ASK AGAIN, THEN HOW DO WE LET HIM WATCH OVER THE HEN HOUSE? HOW DO WE LET HIM MOVE TO HEADING UP THE COMMITTEE REGARDING SAFETY AND THE WELL BEING OF CHILDREN???? GO FIGURE
"One day, humanity's children start displaying telepathic and telekinetic abilities. These children soon become distant from their parents, and the Overlords quarantine all of them to their own continent. Following the quarantine, no more normal children are born. Humanity ages and dies off; all the while their children change more and more in their evolution to become part of the Overmind." CHILDHOOD'S END...AUTHOR C. CLARK
The pedophile dominos ...scary when we look at the total thousands of boys that were abused by their ROMAN CATHOLIC PRIEST...and then how do they go on and spread the disease, research is so much showing that the molesters were molested themselves as children, as Rep. Foley is already saying happened to him in child hood...Psychiatrist on Fox News says, "The compulsion to have sex with children is so strong people will do almost anything to have sex with a child."
THIS IS ALL TO BIBLICAL TO NOT FEEL THE FATE OF SHOCK...
7 out of the last 12 school shooters were on Anti depressants. 30 million people in the USA are on anti depressants and report on FOX news October of 2006...1.5 million people will have maniac reactions to the drugs.
ONE FLEW EAST...ONE FLEW WEST...ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST.
And while all this is going on I find the following work that the Supreme Court is doing:
The Supreme Court refused Monday to consider whether a Texas law making it a crime to promote sex toys shaped like sexual organs is unconstitutional.
An adult bookstore employee in El Paso, Texas, sued the state after his arrest for showing two undercover officers a device shaped like a penis and telling the female officer the device would arouse and gratify her.
The employee, Ignacio Sergio Acosta, says a Texas law outlawing the manufacture, marketing or dissemination of an "obscene device" including those shaped like sex organs is unconstitutional because it prevents individuals from using such devices, violating their right to sexual privacy.
Colorado, Kansas and Louisiana have held such laws unconstitutional, while Georgia, Mississippi and Texas have upheld them, said Acosta's lawyer in urging the Supreme Court to take the case.
October USA Today-Woman accused of flinging baby...A woman used her 4-week-old baby as a weapon in a domestic dispute, swinging the infant through the air and striking her boyfriend with the child, authorities said. The baby had a fractured skull and is bleeding in the brain. The police removed her other 4 children to foster care...
THE MILLIONAIRE PREDATOR IN CENTRAL NEW YORK...for years young girls taken as sexual slaves in a dungeon
the first a 14 year old girl finds herself nude on the cement floor. For 3 years he raped her in his hole four feet under ground. The old man came in every day came in and raped her... John Jamelske...and the Mormon's...and the Catholic priest...so much in common...and with the Congressmen that wants to play with the little boys.
What makes this against Rep. Mark Foley so fucking sick, is that he had a position on a committee that deals with this same sick behavior in congress. Like what make it worse when a lawyer fucks someone in business...like when a priest butt fucks a little boy...or a congressman in a position likes this wants to play sex with the pages...gag me with a spoon.
Today Fox News announces 3 Amber alerts. One is a couple that shot a social worker and stole their child, who was going to be put up for adoption because the suspected killers of the social worker had abused the child.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Rep. Thomas Reynolds, head of the House Republican election effort, said Saturday he told Speaker Dennis Hastert months ago about concerns that a fellow GOP lawmaker had sent inappropriate messages to a teenage boy. Hastert's office said aides referred the matter to the proper authorities last fall but they were only told the messages were "over-friendly."

---------------------------------------------------so i say...
The rise of very sadistic violence against children is creeping me out, sometimes I get to tired of concerning myself with this enough to try and understand and write the sad facts that I did up out of the cracks of our culture...gone bad.
I have a folder here that I have been keeping near by and just now and then throwing this and that off TV, radio and articles that I run across concerning the fate of our children...
"The statistics are staggering: a six fold spike, between 1993 and 2003 in the number of doctor visits in which kids and adolescents were prescribed antipsychotic drugs. Antipsychotic are powerful drugs, typically used to treat severe mental illnesses like schizophrenia in adults--and they're not FDA approved for children. But increasingly, doctors are prescribing newer generations of antipsychotic "off label" for a range of conditions in young people, from mood disorders to behavioral problems and ADHD.
Female teachers accused of sex crimes against underage male students have been grabbing headlines lately. Many of them are young and beautiful, their stories sordid and intriguing.
But to law enforcement, they're something else — criminals who have committed statutory rape against a minor.
This week alone, two cases have hit the news: Cops say one Texas teacher, Kathy Denise White had sex with a 17-year-old, and Tennessee teacher Pamela Rogers Turner had sex with a 13-year-old boy.
They join at least three other recent cases: Florida teacher Debra LaFave, 24, is expected to plead insanity to charges she had sex with a 14-year-old student, according to her lawyer; California teacher Sarah Bench-Salorio, 28, allegedly molested two boys when they were 12 and 14; and 33-year-old California teacher Rebecca Boicelli was arrested last month on statutory rape and related charges after DNA tests confirmed that a former student fathered her 2-year-old baby when he was 16.
All of them follow the trail laid by Mary Kay Letourneau, whom the media tracked again last year when she was released from prison after more than seven years. The former Seattle teacher said she’s still in love with her now-21-year-old student (who was 12 when she was 34 and fathered the first of the two children they had together); the pair have since reportedly gotten engaged.
SEX AND THE CAPITAL
KARLYN BARKER, WASHINGTON POST, JULY 24, 1990: The alleged leader of what authorities have called the largest male prostitution operation in the Washington area surrendered to federal agents yesterday and pleaded not guilty to racketeering charges that have been filed against him and three alleged accomplices. Henry W. Vinson, 29, of Williamson, W.Va., a coal miner's son accused of setting up the homosexual escort service, was arraigned in U.S. District Court here yesterday afternoon after turning himself in to Secret Service agents . . . At a news conference after the arraignment, [U.S. Attorney Jay] Stephens said the investigation into the alleged prostitution ring "is concluded" and that the indictment, which was unsealed yesterday, focused on those who allegedly set up the ring rather than on clients who reportedly patronized it. Asked about earlier reports that some of those clients included high-level officials in the Reagan and Bush administrations, Stephens said the investigation had not revealed "additional conduct which suggests criminal conduct on behalf of other people." . . . The Vinson case provoked additional notice after The Washington Times published reports last summer suggesting that the alleged prostitution ring had been patronized by government officials. The Times named as clients several low-level government employees and Craig J. Spence, a Washington lobbyist and party-giver who, the paper said, took friends and prostitutes on late-night tours of the White House. Spence was found dead in a Boston hotel room last fall, and authorities ruled his death a suicide . . . To date, however, investigators have disclosed no evidence linking any high-level government official to the escort service.

|Milk Driver Kills
5 at Amish Schoolhouse
His purchase was simple and seemingly innocuous: two packages of plastic zip-ties.
The next day, a gunman lay siege to a Colorado school. The drifter took six girls hostage, sexually assaulted some, and then killed one before turning the gun on himself.
Little did people know - in the horse-and-buggy farmland half a continent away - that Charlie Roberts and his bag of hardware had far worse in store for their community.
On Monday, Roberts and five Amish schoolgirls lay dead or dying behind barricaded doors. Five other girls lay wounded from gunfire amid blood-spattered desks, hundreds of unspent bullets, and the gruesome makings of a sexual assault cut short by police.
Executioner of helpless girls? Zip-ties as bondage restraints?
Charlie Roberts - the local milk-truck driver?
As grainy photos of that placid face permeate a nation saddened by the slaughter, grieving relatives and acquaintances can only shake their heads in disbelief.
The gunman behind the Amish school massacre in which five girls were shot dead had told his wife shortly before opening fire that he had molested two young girls related to him decades ago and was tormented by 'dreams of molesting again,' police revealed today.
Normal people that long for sex with children will do insane things for that desire to be met, just imagine or look at what we are seeing in the news what sick people will do. Or, what people that are mentally ill and on antidepressant drugs, will do to have sex with a child.

CAZENOVIA, Wis. (AP) - A teenager brought two guns to his rural school and shot the principal to death Friday after a struggle with adults and other students, authorities said.
The 15-year-old was taken into custody and charged with first-degree intentional homicide, the district attorney said. No one else was hurt.
It was not clear why the student opened fire or if Weston Schools Principal John Klang was the intended target, Sheriff Randy Stammen said.
Witnesses said the student walked in with a shotgun before classes began. A custodian, teachers and students wrestled with him, but he broke through, took out a handgun and shot Klang three times, Stammen said.
In April 2006 Fox News reported that there had been ten foiled plans since just March 1st, of kids planning school shootings.
A teenage hostage was fatally shot--39 miles from Columbine
Sept. 27, 2006
Bailey - A teenage hostage was fatally shot Wednesday as authorities stormed a Platte Canyon High School classroom to end an armed standoff.
An unidentified man, who had entered the school late Wednesday morning and initially taken six hostages, fired at approaching SWAT officers and then at the female hostage before shooting himself, Park County authorities said. He died at the scene.
The girl was flown to St. Anthony Central Hospital in Denver, where she was pronounced dead at 4:32 p.m. Hospital spokeswoman Bev Lilly said she believed the girl was shot in the head. Authorities did not release the name of the victim, but friends of the family said she was 16-year-old Emily Keyes. Lynn Bigham, a friend of the victim's, described Emily as "sweet and affectionate."
School officials told investigators that some of the hostages said they were sexually assaulted, according to Lance Clem, spokesman for the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

By CLAUDIA ROWE
SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER REPORTER
The Seattle that Alisha knows is not a city of social liberalism or glittering scenery. For her, it is just a series of worn-out highways where men will happily pay a 15-year-old for sex.
A slight girl with bad skin and wire-rimmed glasses, Alisha spent much of this year traipsing up and down Aurora Avenue, darting into cars outside The Home Depot or Albertsons and stepping out 20 minutes later with $60 in hand.
All the money went to her pimp, Marquis Smith, a 19-year-old who decided when and where she would work, kept track of her customers, tallied her earnings, beat her intermittently, collected the cash and used it to house the two of them in a series of local motels.
Customers were sometimes stunned to learn her age, though never enough to stop.
"One guy thought I was 16, but I told him I was 15," she said. "He was like, 'Wow!' A little shocked. But he didn't say, 'You've got to go home.' Mostly, I didn't tell them because it didn't matter anyway."
As a minor and, legally, the victim of numerous sex crimes, Alisha is being identified only by her first name. She is one of a growing number of girls -- some as young as 11 -- who have recently come to the attention of Seattle police and social workers for their involvement with prostitution. Some are from seemingly intact families. Others are wards of the state, on the run from foster homes.
Almost all were initially seduced by a recruiter, often an acquaintance, who dangled pitifully transparent promises of money and glamour, freedom and independence.
At a time when more obvious violent crime is down around the nation, sociologists are debating whether teen prostitution -- or merely their awareness of it -- is increasing. Certainly, they say, sex-for-money deals initiated on the Internet are camouflaging activity that previously occurred in the open.
Nevertheless, the King County Juvenile Detention Center has twice as many girls in its cells for soliciting than it did five years ago, and national experts say Seattle has become a major hub on the child-trafficking circuit.
Researchers estimate that nationally, one out of every three kids on the streets will be solicited for sex.
Often, a man presenting himself as a caring protector is the first. He flatters and befriends the youth, paying for food, clothes and a place to stay until she is easy prey -- financially indebted and emotionally tied.
Part of the reason may be cultural. Where stigma previously silenced discussion, the language of prostitution has now become a pop culture joke. The MTV show "Pimp My Ride" is among the network's most popular. Several young girls who walk Aurora recalled school friends holding "pimp-and-ho" parties.
Many of Portland's homeless teens are current or former foster-care kids
PORTLAND -- A report to be issued this month says at least a third of downtown Portland's "street kids" are current or former foster-care children who have been dumped by the state, and says the state is abdicating its responsibility.
The report by the Portland Citizens Crime Commission says the abandoned children have no jobs or stable homes and must fend for themselves, and may number about 2,000 in the Portland area. Many gravitate toward downtown.
"We believe the state of Oregon is abdicating its responsibility by not providing needed services that would help adolescents either currently or previously involved in the foster-care system transition to a more productive and stable future," a draft of the report obtained by The Oregonian states.
"Youth are dumped on homeless-youth providers, thus transferring responsibility from the Department of Human Services to the homeless-youth system and Multnomah County," the report says.
Last year, more than 3,900 teens 13 and older lived in foster care: substitute, state-supervised care for neglected, abused or abandoned kids.
UNION, Mo. Sept. 16, 2006 - A grandmother of a newborn girl stolen from a rural home pleaded Saturday for the baby's safe return, as authorities searched for an abductor who stabbed and seriously injured the infant's mother before fleeing with the child.
"The family's in agony," Raylene Ochsenbine said at a news conference. "Just give her back."
The attacker walked into the home, told Abby Woods' mother "I'm here to take your child," then slashed the young mother's throat and fled with the 1-week-old child.
The baby's pediatrician, Andy Zupan, said the abduction comes at a time when the baby is still adjusting to life. She is already overdue for a doctor's visit, Zupan said, and had been breast-feeding.
NEXT DEVELOPMENT IN THE STORY...STRANGE THAT IT HAPPENED, BUT GOOD NEWS TO THE TALE
UNION, Mo. - A newborn abducted after her mother was slashed was found alive Tuesday in excellent condition, and a woman who had recently miscarried was arrested, officials said.
Dr. Peter McCarthy, an emergency room physician at St. John's Hospital in Washington, Mo., said 11-day-old Abigale Lynn Woods has been reunited with her mother, father and other relatives. She was expected to be released from the hospital later Tuesday.
"The family is elated and thankful to everyone in the community who prayed for them," McCarthy said. "The baby was hydrated, nourished and in good condition when she arrived at the hospital."agent Roland Corvington identified the suspect as Shannon Beck, who lives a few miles from the home of the mother and baby.
LUGOFF, S.C. - A text message sent by a kidnapped 14-year-old to her mother led to her rescue Saturday, when police found her in a hand-dug, booby-trapped bunker.
Elizabeth Shoaf's message also led investigators to name a suspect in her Sept. 6 abduction — police were searching a wooded area where the girl was found for 37-year-old Vinson Filyaw, said Kershaw County Sheriff Steve McCaskill.
Shoaf was found by deputies about a mile from her home in a 15-foot deep hole in the side of a hill that was covered with plywood. The bunker had a hand-dug privy with toilet paper, a camp stove and shelves made with cut branches and canvas.
McCaskill said the girl appeared to be unharmed but was taken to Kershaw County Medical Center for evaluation. Police have not interviewed her, saying they would leave her alone until she's ready to talk.
WASHINGTON (AFP) - Unless public health takes urgent measures, one in five children in the United States will be obese by the year 2010, the Institute of Medicine warned in a report.
Currently, one third of American children are obese or at risk of becoming so. The rate of childhood obesity has jumped from 16 percent in 2002, to 17.1 percent in 2004 and will reach 20 percent in four years, the report said.
"The good news is that Americans have begun to recognize that childhood obesity is a serious public health problem, and initiatives to address it are under way," said Jeffrey Koplan, who heads an institute committee on preventing childhood obesity.
The committee has held meetings around the United States, including Kansas, Georgia and California, to review public health actions on the matter and has estimated that progress will be slow and in need of systematic monitoring.
EXPERTS BACK CERVICAL CANCER VACCINE...CDC panel urges it for girls 11 - 12
Atlanta--Preteen girls should be given a new vaccine to prevent the most comon cause of cervical cancer, a panel of experts.
The committee said the vaccine series can be given to girls as young as 9. "We're trying to provide the vaccine to girls before the onset of sexual activity, said Anney Schuchat, director of the CDS's National Center for Immunization and Respiration Disease. The vaccine targets four types of HPV that cause 70% of cervical cancer and 90% of genital warts. HPV is the ost common sexually transmitted infection in the USA, infecting 6.2 million each year.

As this excerpt suggests, anthropologists are interested in the gulf between cultural rules and actual behavior, and many ethnographers have observed that incest occurs in societies with prohibitions against incest. It should be further noted that in these theories anthropologists are generally concerned solely with brother-sister incest, and are not claiming that all forms of incest are taboo (these theories are further complicated by the fact that in many societies people related to one another in different ways, and sometimes distantly, are classified together as siblings). Moreover, the definition restricts itself to sexual intercourse; this does not mean that other forms of sexual contact do not occur, or are proscribed, or prescribed. It should also be noted that in these theories anthropologists are primarily concerned with marriage rules and not sexual behavior. In short, anthropologists were not studying "incest" per se; they were asking informants what they meant by "incest," and what the consequences of "incest" were, in order to map out social relationships within the community. FROM WIKIPEDEA
There is a new theory,
called "emotional incest", which is a milder form in
incest, but still very painful for the victim.
Incest is usually considered as physical sexual
contact between parent and child. But now, according
to the new theory, physical incest is the extreme of
a general phenomena.
The phenomena exists in a co-dependent relationship, where the "subject" satisfies the emotional needs of the senior, rather than the other way round. A normal parent/child relationship is when the parent satisfies the emotional needs of the child. The theory is that the abuser uses the victim to satisfy his or her emotional needs instead of from a normal sexual relationship between adults.
It is often the case that emotional abuse does not involve sexual contact. Sexual contact can occur in extreme cases, and there are, of course, different cases.
It blows apart the "instinctual" aversion theory of incest. It is the responsibility of the carer not to seek his or her emotional needs from dependants. The "taboo" exists because it is obviously exploitative.
Anyway, I don't expect that this is a perfect post and that I have to justify every single statement in it. Feel free to ask normal questions, don't just whinge and moan please.
Approximately one out of four American women have been sexually abused as children, most by someone they knew. "Newer research...indicates that as many as 38% of women are molested in childhood. There are many acknowledged problems with even this research, but the greatest is this: what is not remembered cannot be reported. It is my (Blume's) experience that fewer than half of the women who experience this trauma later remember or identify it as abuse. Therefore, it is not unlikely that more than half of all women are survivors of childhood sexual trauma."
Calif. Autism Rate Doubles in Four Years -Study
By Gina Keating
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Autism cases in California nearly doubled over the past four years to more than 20,000 -- a phenomenon whose cause may be difficult to pinpoint because it is not related to population increases or the way the disorder is diagnosed, a state study said on Tuesday.
The study, conducted by the California Department of Developmental Services, tracked the number of autism cases referred to 21 regional centers where patients and their families receive government-funded services.
Autism is a lifelong neurological disorder that primarily strikes boys, impairing their ability to communicate, interact and emotionally bond with others. Once a rare disorder, autism now is more prevalent than childhood cancer, diabetes and Down syndrome, the study's author, Dr. Ron Huff, said.
FLASHBACK OF SADNESS
Danielle van Dam
Danielle was 7 years old when she was killed. She
was in second grade at Creekside Elementary
School close to her home. She was a Brownie, had recently taken up piano, loved coloring, playing
with dolls and drawing. Her favorite colors were pink and purple. She was born in Texas.
Westerfield, 50, a self-employed engineer, lived two doors away from Danielle in a San Diego
suburb. In addition to murder and kidnapping, he also faces misdemeanor charges of possessing
pictures of minors engaged in sexual conduct.
A twice-divorced father of two grown children, has
no known criminal record aside from a 1996
drunken driving conviction. He is the oldest of three children. When the search for Danielle began
Westerfield initially talked to the media and said he had socialized with Brenda van Dam and two of her
friends at a bar that night. He said he had a few drinks and danced with Brenda van Dam before leaving.
Within days of Danielle's disappearance, Westerfield became a prisoner
in his own home, under constant scrutiny by the police and media. He became the primary focus of the investigation early on because he was the only
neighbor away from home the weekend Danielle vanished.
CHICAGO (Reuters) - Four children were found dead in the Louisville, Kentucky, apartment of a Somalian immigrant who entered police headquarters on Friday and announced, "I killed my family," police said.
"His statement was, 'I killed my family.' The assumption is that he is the father," Louisville Police Lt. Col. Philip Turner said.
Police would not disclose how the four children, the eldest aged 8, were killed. A woman, believed to be the children's mother, was found conscious but with a head injury in the same public housing apartment.
Girl, 4, who is so sad she may need
By PAUL SIMS Nov 2006
A girl of four is being treated for stress and depression after she was refused a place at her local school.
Mollie Murphy became so distraught at being separated from her best friends that she had to see a doctor.
Last night, the youngster's mother spoke of her shock after the GP said he would consider a course of anti-depressants and counselling if Mollie's condition does not improve.
"When he said she had stress and depression at first I thought he must be joking," said 26-year-old hairdresser Victoria Anderson.
Although the number of children suffering from depression remains relatively low, experts claim the rate has dramatically increased in recent years.
According to research by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, as many as 40,000 children and adolescents were prescribed anti-depressants in 2003.
Miss Anderson said her daughter started experiencing problems in September.
Due to a lack of places available at East Herrington Primary, in Sunderland, she was forced to travel to nearby Farringdon school.
Since then she has suffered from bouts of vomiting. She also regularly wets the bed and refuses to go to school at the start of each day.
A Schoolboy hanged himself using his favorite football team scarf after complaining that he was being persecuted on the bus ride home from lessons.
Paul Moran, 13, would sometimes arrive in tears, his hair and clothes covered with food and drink thrown by other pupils, his mother said yesterday.
On one occasion his beloved Liverpool FC bag was ripped and on another he was even thrown down stairs, Carole Moran added.
Finally, after speaking about suicide to friends, the "sensitive and caring" teenager's mother found him suspended from his metal bunk bed with his Liverpool scarf, facing a poster of his favourite team.
In a further tragedy, a girl from the same school, Jenny Sykes, also 13, hanged herself eight months later after apparently becoming depressed over his death.
Detectives investigating the schoolgirl's death took away her computer after fears that she visited suicide chatrooms before killing herself.
Out-of-wedlock births in the United States have climbed to an all-time high, accounting for nearly four in 10 babies born last year, government health officials said Tuesday.
While out-of-wedlock births have long been associated with teen mothers, the birth rate among girls ages 10 to 17 actually dropped last year to the lowest level on record. Instead, births among unwed mothers rose most dramatically among women in their 20s.
Experts said the overall rise reflects the burgeoning number of people who are putting off marriage or living together without getting married. They said it also reflects the fact that having a child out of wedlock is more acceptable nowadays and not necessarily the source of shame it once was.
The increase in births to unwed mothers was seen in all racial groups, but rose most sharply among Hispanics. It was up among all age groups except youngsters ages 10 to 17.
"A lot of people think of teenagers and unmarried mothers synonymously, but they are not driving this," said Stephanie Ventura of the National Center for Health Statistics, a co-author of the report.
SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Two 14-year-old prep school students accused of taking a homemade bomb to school were arrested Monday, police said.
Their attorneys took them to a detention center, and each was charged with possession of a weapon on school property and reckless conduct. They also face a charge of possession and manufacturing of an explosive device, police said.
One student made the bomb out of firecrackers, gun pellets and metal shavings and gave it to another student Nov. 15, according to a police report. The other student took the bomb home, but took it back to school three days later at the urging of an administrator, the report said.
School officials at Savannah Country Day School kept the bomb for nearly 24 hours before contacting police. Headmaster Tom Bonnell said last week that he should have called police immediately. Police spokesman Sgt. Mike Wilson said the device was not powerful enough to destroy the building but could have harmed anyone nearby.MSNBC two days before Xmas reports 1 million children in the US are homeless.

|5 Face Charges In
RIVERTON, Kan., April 21, 2006
(CBS/AP) The five teenage boys accused of plotting a Columbine-style massacre at their Kansas high school are still being held by police. Authorities say the boys fully intended to go on a shooting spree at their high school but were stopped after one of them discussed the plot on a Web site. The boys, ranging in age from 16 to 18, were arrested Thursday, the anniversary of the Columbine massacre, just hours before they planned to shoot fellow students and school employees, authorities said.
Even as the numbers of such Columbine-style shootings increase, many parents are still not ready to believe that it could happen in their own school districts. The four who were younger than 18 were being held Thursday at a juvenile detention center in Girard. The 18-year-old was in the Cherokee County Jail. No decision has been made on whether to charge the four juveniles as adults, Kline said.
The teens planned to wear black trench coats and disable the school's camera system before starting the attack between noon and 1 p.m. Thursday, Norman said. Sheriff's deputies found guns, ammunition, knives and coded messages in the bedroom of one suspect and documents about firearms and references to Armageddon in two suspects' school lockers.
Apparently, they had been plotting since the beginning of the school year. Norman said school officials began investigating Tuesday after learning a threatening message had been posted on MySpace.com. "The message, it was brief, but it stated that there was going to be a shooting at the Riverton school and that people should wear bulletproof vests and flak jackets," Norman said.
The message also discussed the significance of April 20 as Adolf Hitler's birthday and the anniversary of the 1999 Columbine High School attack in Colorado, in which two students wearing trench coats killed 13 people before committing suicide.
But Riverton school district Superintendent David Walters said the significance of the threat did not become clear until Wednesday night, after a woman in North Carolina who had chatted with one of the suspects on Myspace.com notified authorities there would be about a dozen potential victims, at least one of them a staff member.
Back in January, one of the teen suspects had talked about Columbine, but "we thought he was joking because he was always joking about stuff like that," Ferneau told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday. Ferneau and otherstudents described the teen as a class clown who was often in trouble with the teachers. He was an "oddball," student Trenton Berry told ABC. "Everybody picked on him and everything." Norman also mentioned bullying and said investigators had learned the suspects liked violent video games. Four of the suspects were arrested at their homes Thursday; the fifth was taken into custody at the school.

Police arrest 6 boys in plot
Six seventh-grade boys, whom police said may have been out for revenge because they were being picked on, were in custody Saturday in North Pole on suspicion they plotted to bring guns and knives to school and kill teachers and students they didn't like.
The boys -- not named because of their ages -- were taken to a Fairbanks Youth Facility and face first-degree conspiracy to commit murder charges, authorities said.
The arrests culminate a tense, weeklong investigation that involved a number of police agencies and that gripped the small town of 1,600. Events during the week stirred numerous parents to keep their children home from North Pole Middle School, school officials said.
"I think all of us were horrified that anybody would be thinking to kill someone else," said the town's mayor, Jeff Jacobson, who also teaches sixth-graders at the school. "This is a wake-up call for all of us that we need to keep the channels of communication open with our kids."
The investigation began with a tip to North Pole police Monday from a concerned parent, who had heard about the murder plot from a child. Police immediately notified school officials and by that evening, 12 students were suspended.
The plot was to be executed the following day, according to a statement released Saturday by North Pole Police Chief Paul Lindhag.
Police speculated the boys were driven by motives ranging from being picked on by other students to disliking staff and students, according to the statement.
"This plan included the disabling of the school's telephone and power system, setting an allotted amount of time to remain in the school to kill their victims, and their escape route from the school and North Pole area," the statement said.
He said news of the murder plot has been understandably unnerving for parents, students and faculty. In order to further calm fears, a police officer will be stationed at the middle school for the remaining four weeks of classes, Manzie said. An extra safety monitor has also been added to the school.
The North Pole arrests came just days after five Kansas teenagers suspected of planning a shooting rampage at their high school were arrested Thursday, the seventh anniversary of the Columbine massacre. But North Pole police said their investigation revealed no connection to any other school tragedy.

Wash. Student Arrested in Shooting Plot
PUYALLUP, Wash. (AP) - A 16-year-old student accused of plotting to shoot people at Rogers High School, then kill himself "to finally go out in a blaze of hatred and fury" was charged Monday with first-degree attempted assault, Pierce County authorities said.
Another student passed along word of the alleged plot to the school's ROTC commander, court papers said.
Investigators searched Brian Michael Evans' home Sunday and found two rifles, two handguns, ammunition, a homemade bomb and a CD copy of "The Anarchist Cookbook," which includes directions to make explosives, sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said.
Sheriff's investigators believe the boy didn't plan to target specific people.
The boy wanted people to "feel his pain, and he wanted to be hated, not having earned respect in the past," Troyer said.
Charging papers said the teen shared specifics of his plan with deputies when they arrived at his house, including plans to use bolt cutters to cut the locks on his stepfather's gun cabinet, which contained two rifles and two handguns.
The boy told authorities he planned to take a .22 caliber rifle and a handgun with 15 rounds because it was easy to conceal. He said he planned to "take people out and save the last round for himself," - only taking one magazine "because that is all that he needed," an affidavit filed with charging papers said.

Teen Killed In Shooting At Venice High School
POSTED: 4:01 pm PDT June 5, 2006
UPDATED: 5:59 pm PDT June 5, 2006
LOS ANGELES -- Authorities are searching for two people in connection with a deadly shooting Monday afternoon in a high school parking lot.
A teenage boy was shot and killed in the Venice High School parking lot. The shooting occurred at 3:10 p.m., police said.The boy was taken to the hospital in critical condition and later was pronounced dead, said Officer Mike Lopez, a police spokesman.
The victim was a 17-year-old junior at Venice High but no other details were available, said Susan Cox, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Unified School District.
The 15-year-old boy shot by police while brandishing a pellet gun in a middle school bathroom was clinically brain
dead Saturday but was being kept alive to harvest his organs, his family's attorney said. Christopher Penley was
expected to die Saturday night, said family attorney Mark Nation.
"His organs are in the process of being harvested," Nation told reporters outside a hospital. Earlier, Kelly Swofford,
a family spokeswoman and neighbor of the boy's parents Ralph and Donna Penley, said the boy had died and that
the family was "devastated."
Penley, of Winter Springs, was accused of pulling the pellet gun in a classroom Friday and pointing it at other students
before forcing one into a closet, then leading deputies and SWAT team members on a chase that ended in a school bathroom.
When he raised the gun at a deputy, a SWAT team member shot him, authorities said.
Officers who had responded to the 1,100-student school in suburban Orlando believed the gun was a Beretta 9mm, and
didn't learn until after the shooting that it was a pellet gun.
Police had said Friday night that the boy was on "advanced life support." The hospital refused to release any information Saturday.
"Everybody in the whole neighborhood is really upset," Paul Cavallini, who lives across the street from the Penleys, said
Saturday. "He was a quiet kid — polite and everything. He was just a normal teenager." However, friends and investigators say
he was also bullied and emotionally distraught, and went to school that day expecting to die.
With Americans spending an average of 40 percent of their free time
watching television, the
negative effects of excessive TV-watching are taking a toll:
· More than 2,000 studies link TV-violence to real life violence.
· Twelve major medical studies link excessive TV watching to increased obesity.
· By the age of 65, the average American spends nine full years watching TV.
"We have the most sedentary generation of young people in American history…reducing
amount of television our children watch is one way to encourage more healthful activity," U.S.
Surgeon General David Satcher said.
"When kids are parked in front of the TV, they're not engaged in the
activities essential to the
formation of healthy bones and muscles," American Public Health Association executive
director Mohammad Akhter said.
According to the A.C. Nielsen Co., the average American watches three
hours and 46 minutes
of TV every day, that's more than 52 days of nonstop TV watching per year.
Unfortunately, some negative statistics show Americans rent more videos
on a daily basis, six
million, than the number of books checked out of public libraries, only three million.
The average American child, ages two to 11, watches television 1,197
minutes (almost 20
hours) per week, whereas the same children only spend 38 minutes per week in meaningful
conversation with their parents.
Other discouraging statistics compiled by TV-Free America include:
· Only one in 12 parents require their children to do homework
before watching television.
· 25: percentage of teens who can name the city where the U.S. Constitution was written: Philadelphia.
· 75: percentage of teens who know where to find the zip code 90210: Beverly Hills.
· 200,000: number of violent acts the average American child sees on TV by age 18.
· 16,000: number of murders witnessed by children on television by age 18.
· 10: percentage of youth violence directly attributable to TV viewing.
· 73: percentage of Americans who believe TV and movies are responsible for juvenile crime.
· 80: percentage of Hollywood executives who think there is a link between TV violence and real-life violence.
· 91: percentage of children polled who said they felt upset or scared by violence on television.
· 721: percent increase in network news coverage of homicides between 1993 and 1996.
· 41: percent increase in number of violent scenes per hour on 10 major channels from 1992 to 1994.
· 12: number of medical studies since 1985 linking excessive television-watching to increasing rates of obesity.
· 4: percentage of American children, ages six to 11, seriously overweight in 1963.
· 14: percentage of American children, ages six to 11, seriously overweight in 1993.
· 202: number of junk food ads aired during four hours of Saturday morning programming.
TV-Free America is a national, nonprofit, nonpartisan
organization encouraging Americans to
voluntarily and dramatically reduce the amount of television they watch in order to promote
richer, healthier and more connected lives, families and communities.
According to the Federal
Bureau of Investigation, the years between 1985 and 1995 saw
249 percent increase in gun-related murders committed by juveniles. (By the year 1992, when
murder became the second leading cause of death among males 15-24 in the United States,
three-quarters of the killings already involved guns.) Indeed, for black and white older adolescents,
firearm murders are the most rapidly increasing cause of death.
After review of hundreds
of research findings,
three major national studies have concluded
that heavy exposure to televised violence
is one of the significant causes of violence

age groups in the United States, firearms consistently account for nearly 60% of all suicide
deaths. It is the method of CHOICE.
Each year in the United States, thousands
of teenagers commit suicide. Again,
past two decades automobile accidents kill most of the nations adolecents. It has been re-
ported that over a million kids are in auto wrecks in a years time. I honestly believe that
tens of thousands of the kids killed and badly hurt in automobile accidents are suicide
attempts. Consciously and on the robotic unconscious level...there are many forms of
behavior that suicide can hide.
is the 3rd leading cause of death for 15-to-24 years olds, &
the 6th leading
cause of death for 5-to-14 years olds. This fact alone brings tears to my already red eyes. Between
1950 and 1992, suicide among adolescents and young adults has nearly tripled, according to the CDC.
From 1980 to 1992, suicide among American teens 15-to-19 years old rose 28.3%. During that same
period the suicide rate for children 10-to-14 has grown 120%. These statistics are scary, but the worst
part of it is what these numbers don't tell. The numbers we have are based on SUCCESSFUL suicides.
The scary thought is that only 7 to 10 percent of attempters die by suicide. That means that to get an
adequate picture of who tries to commit suicide.....you have to multiply the numbers by at least 10.
That means that there are more people that attempt suicide between the ages of 5-to-14 then are killed
by the top ten causes of death. To put it simply....it is an epidemic......We NEED to start paying attention
to the problems that are causing our youth to behave in such sad sad ways. This is what I know for sure.
So...while I am working on this page
after the Columbine tragedy this yet another
tragedy comes to my heart reading this in USA TODAY. My fellow Americans...this
is happening in the United States of America...not China or Russia. We know what
is going on and if you look back just years ago in some of the research below you
see that we have had the stories and the "research" to know a terrible trend has
begun, and that as a Nation, a culture and a country we should stop as humans,
congressmen, parents and presidents and do something to stem the tide...

study of injury deaths in the first year of life. "We were very surprised when we first looked at
the numbers to see this (murder) happening so much in infants," says Mary Overpeck, a
researcher at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development...after murder,
which accounted for 23% of the deaths, the leading causes were suffocation, 18%; car
accidents, 15%; fires 9%; drowning, 7%; choking on food, 7%; choking on objects, 6%;
other unintentional injuries, 11%; and injuries of undetermined intent, 4%.

Study results to date show that there
were 173 incidents between 7/1/94
and June 30, 1998. The majority of these incidents were homicides and
involved the use of firearms. The total number of events has decreased
steadily since the 1992-1993 school year. However, the total number of
multiple victim events appears to have increased. During the past 3 school
years, August 1995 through June 1998, there were an average of 5 multiple
victims events per year. This is compared to an average of one multiple
victim event per year in the three years from August 1992 through July
1995. Thus, while the total number of events of school associated violent
deaths have decreased, the total number of multiple-victim events appears
to have increased. Data collection ended with the completion of the 1997-
1998 academic year.
Over the 5-year period from 1992 to
1996, teachers were victims of 1,581,000
nonfatal crimes at school, including 962,000 thefts and 619,000 violent
crimes (rape or sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated and simple assault) (Indicator 9).
This translates into about 316,000 nonfatal crimes per year over this time

The 1997 YRBS reported that:
8.3% of high school
students carried a weapon (e.g., gun, knife, or club)
during the 30 days preceding the survey, down from 26.1% in 199
5.9% of high school students carried a gun during the 30 days preceding

Other facts from the 1997 YRBS report included:
Nationwide, 4% of students
had missed 1 or more days of school during
the 30 days preceding the survey because they had felt unsafe at school
or when traveling to or from school.
The prevalence of weapon
carrying on school property on 1 or more of
the 30 days preceding the survey was 8.5% nationwide. Overall, male
students (12.5%) were significantly more likely than female students
(3.7%) to have carried a weapon on school property.
Nationwide, the prevalence
of students who had been threatened or
injured with a weapon on school property one or more times during the
12 months preceding the survey was 7.4%. Overall, male students
(10.2%) were significantly more likely than female students (4%) to have
been threatened or injured with a weapon on school property.
Nationwide, 14.8% of
students had been in a physical fight on school
property one or more times during the 12 months preceding the survey.
Overall, male students (20%) were significantly more likely than female
students (8.6%) to have been in a physical fight on school property. This
significant difference was identified for white and Hispanic students and
all grade subgroups.
Approximately one third

I ask again where is all
this lottery money going...tax the guns Mr. Heston and give some
of the money the
arms merchants are selling out of their pursuit to make the all mighty buck...the same guys that are
manufacturing the guns that our kids are taking to school, shooting each other with, shooting themselves
and their parents with, the same guns that the gangs are shooting up the streets and neighborhoods with in
cities across this entire nation are the same guys that are selling guns to the various countries that are in
war like Kosovo, the guns...What reminds me of Gore Vadal's Hollywood?
The gun owners stick up their
hands and say it is not the guns, or our Second Amendment Right that the
forefathers gave us, of course never imagining that the kids would be blowing the heads off of their parents,
their peers, teachers and cops in the street, and corner grocery store clerks away with simi automatic rifles.
Hey Charlton Moses did you carry a gun to Denver? The school says it is not our fault we had no idea,
besides we do not have the funds needed to teach much less control the ills of society that come to school
each day called students. Our youth are a mess, and we put more money into football gear than we do the
counselors to help them. Irony that it was the jocks that they were after. We need to look at the sports
win win win thing.
The little boy says with
a quivering lip...trying not to break down and "be like a man"...when he
tells the new
camera how he saw his his friend Mat laying on the floor in the school library, smoking from the side where
they had shot him. Some tough swat team guy breaks down crying saying, "You feel like your stomach is
grabbing you and your heart is at your feet...there were bodies laying all over the floor. It was a mess."
Another Swat team member on the scene says, "I feel like I am empty living in a fog. When I saw that first
dead girl laying there I saw my daughters face in hers."
National Threat Assessment Center
Secret Service Safe School Initiative from their website in Jan of 2006
In 2002, the U.S. Secret Service completed the Safe School Initiative, a study of school shootings and other school-based attacks that was conducted in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Education. The study examined school shootings in the United States as far back as 1974, through the end of the school year in 2000, analyzing a total of 37 incidents involving 41 student attackers. The study involved extensive review of police records, school records, court documents, and other source materials, and included interviews with 10 school shooters. The focus of the study was on developing information about the school shooters's pre-attack behaviors and communications. The goal was to identify information about a school shooting that may be identifiable or noticeable before the shooting occurs, to help inform efforts to prevent school-based attacks.

The guys that made the game Mortal Combat says, hey its just a game. Just because the military, cops and
swat teams use the same simulated games and many times this game itself has no relativity here. (Hey guys,
call me late to dinner, but don't call me stupid.) The guys at Fox, CBS, ABC, NBC, MTV, Warner Brothers say,
"Hey this stuff don't affect/effect younger children and youth when they see the mindless repetition of guns, sex,
violence, drugs over and over for more than two decades on the boob tube and at the big silver screen. Hey,
and what about art and my God given talents says Marlyn Manson...who also says I didn't do it, it is just art and
rock n' roll man. The Grunge movement say hey man...we ain't preaching that violent stuff...what? Oh, this tattoo

you guys, did you ever wonder where all the lottery money is going. Why do I remember something about schools
and children when the system ran that game down our collective throats. And how much is the Littleton school
system spending on administration. Check out the disparity in the budge for administration and actual programs
that are designed to give teenagers some help and balance in these kids troubled lives.

Speaking of monkeys on our back...I am reminded of the three that had their hands over their eyes, ears, and

They are not just monkeying around, they are holding on to the dear survival of their mind set...for the world
around them is going ape raping mad...like some monkey bite in the jungle of Africa where a behavioral type

VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN
IN THE UNITED STATES
from: www.now.org/The NationalOrganizationforWomen
MURDER . Every day four women
die in this country as a result of domestic violence, the euphemism for
assaults by husbands and boyfriends. That's approximately 1,400 women a year, according to the FBI. The number of
women who have been murdered by their intimate partners is greater than the number of soldiers killed in the Vietnam War.
BATTERING . Although only
572,000 reports of assault by intimates are officially reported to federal
officials each year,
the most conservative estimates indicate two to four million women of all races and classes are battered each year. At
least 170,000 of those violent incidents are serious enough to require hospitalization, emergency room care or a doctor's
SEXUAL ASSAULT . Every year
approximately 132,000 women report that they have been victims of rape
or attempted rape,
and more than half of them knew their attackers. It's estimated that two to six times that many women are raped, but do not
report it. Every year 1.2 million women are forcibly raped by their current or former male partners, some more than once.
THE TARGETS . Women are 10
times more likely than men to be victimized by an intimate. Young women,
women who are
separated, divorced or single, low- income women and African-American women are disproportionately victims of assault and
rape. Domestic violence rates are five times higher among families below poverty levels, and severe spouse abuse is twice as
likely to be committed by unemployed men as by those working full time. Violent attacks on lesbians and gay men have
become two to three times more common than they were prior to 1988.
IMPACT ON CHILDREN . Violent
juvenile offenders are four times more likely to have grown up in homes
where they saw
violence. Children who have witnessed violence at home are also five times more likely to commit or suffer violence when
they become adults.
According to the latest Bureau
of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) statistics, juveniles are responsible
for 34% of all pipe bombings in the nation. Instructions for making pipe bombs are widely available on the
Internet, at book stores, at libraries and at gun shows. From 1993 through 1997, there were 3,578 pipe
bombings nation wide, according to ATF stats. In addition, Juveniles have stolen a total of 780 ds of high
explosives, such as dynamite, in the past two years. "The magnitude of this is incomprehensible to me," said
Jeff Roehm, an investigator with the ATF who has 22 years experience. " have two high-school age daughters.
I woke up a couple times last night in cold sweats, literally."
I could not help but wonder
why the swat team seemed so reluctant to go in...it is all so hard to imagine
dilemma that those trained men had to go through...but, who is the world is trained for anything like this...who
could know? Who could judge? Just because they are trained Swat teams and are trained cops does not
mean they know how to deal with a tragedy such as this. You can see that these tough men will never be the
same. Men that are trained to kill and be tough and strong, were seen on the news with tears in their eyes
after the event. They all seemed to be not so tough up against the situation that existed at Columbine High in
Colorado that tragic day.

today invited representatives of the entertainment, Internet, and gun industries
to a May 10 White House summit to debate ways to cut youth violence after the Colorado school massacre. "As
we have united in grief, now we should unite in action," Clinton said, cautioning, however, that "we should
recognize the simple truth that there is no simple, single answer." Clinton said he wants to invite to his national
strategy session representatives from the movie industry and the Internet, government and religious leaders,
those who produce explosives and weapons, and police force leaders.
The objective is to create
a national grassroots campaign against youth violence on the scale of past
for example, fight drunk driving. "If citizens, parents, and children alike, working together in their communities,
can reduce teen pregnancy, reduce drunk driving, make seat belt use nearly universal--then working together we
can protect our children," Clinton said. is a natural place where many of them will break. That treadmill they are
on is running pretty fast.
I am very mad at my culture
for the blood that our children bath in...Colarado and the streets of L.A.
The kids at
Waco and the kids in the nursery in the Oklahoma building, the children in Kosovo, the kids in the sweat shops
and factories around the world working for dimes, the runaway and homeless children and the kids in the streets
of Rio and New York. I pray for all the hundreds of thousands of kids who have attempted and contemplated
suicide. I pray for the millions that have been and are now locked in adult jails, detention centers, foster homes,
single parent families.
The news the day of the carnage
at the High School in Colorado went from the blood and guns of that story

And on and on and on...
Thousands of scientific
studies and case studies have shown the powerful influence that the
entertainment media has on people's cognitive development and behavior, especially children,
teenagers and young people, who represent the biggest audience. In fact, by the time they are
17-years-old, children will have spent at least 40,000 hours watching movies, videos and TV
programs, playing video games, listening to music, and reading popular books and news
stories, but only 11,000 hours in school, 2,000 hours with their parents, and 800 hours in church
if they regularly attend! That's about 2,353 hours of media consumption per year for the average
child. Of those 2,353 hours each year, our current figures indicate that up to 20 percent of them,
or about 471 hours, will feature a solid, strong or very strong moral worldview, and up to 7
percent, or about 165 hours, will feature a solid, strong or very strong redemptive or Christian
In 2001, the Surgeon General
of the United States agreed with four top medical groups, the
American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American
Psychological Association, and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, as
well as countless psychological experts, that violence in the mass media is contributing to
increasing violent behavior among children.1 Not only that, but many scientific studies from
other sources, such as education professor Diane Levin, author of REMOTE CONTROL
CHILDHOOD? COMBATING THE HAZARDS OF MEDIA CULTURE, 2 and psychologists like
Dr. Victor Cline, Dr. Stanley Rachman, and Dr. W. Marshall, 3 have found that viewing sexual
images in the media has led to increased sexual activity among children and teenagers and
increased deviant behavior, including rape. Furthermore, a recent Dartmouth Medical School
study of New England middle-school students, reported by the National Cancer Institute, found
that viewing drug use in movies and TV programs leads
THE SOLUTION - MEDIA WISDOM

Special to ASSIST News Service
A USA Today/CNN/Gallup Poll
taken Wednesday, the day after the Colorado high school shootings, shows
79% believe the incident indicates "there is something seriously wrong in the country today." Only 17% called
it "an isolated incident." The poll also shows that the easy availability of guns, lax or inattentive parents, and
violent media come in for the lion's share of the blame The poll shows a growing sense of public worry for their
own children's safety in school: More than half (55%) of parents with children in school fear for their safety, up

are a contributing factor, and 52% say "stricter regulation" of the content of movies and TV would help stem the

as in the case of tobacco, the health hazards of violent television were recognized by experts and even by
government agencies long before public awareness began to build.
In 1972, there was a report
by a surgeon general's committee: "Television and Growing Up: The
Televised Violence." By 1976, the case was so obvious that the American Medical Association's House of
Delegates passed this resolution: "The House declares TV violence threatens the health and welfare of young
Ten years later, just as
the first U.S. generation raised on television reached the vulnerable,
years, the homicide rate began a steep climb. After 15 years, it had doubled. Canada had the same ex-
perience, as did other countries like Africa where TV was brought to the populations.
"Industry spokespersons have
made innumbeable protestations of good intent," said Brandon Centerwall
did the above research..."but nothing has happened. In over 20 years of monitoring television levels of violence,
there has been no downward movement."..

Scott Poland of Houston,
a nationally recognized expert on school psychology, has testified before
twice in the last two years. He believes Washington missed an opportunity in the wake of school shootings in
Mississippi, Kentucky, Arkansas and Oregon...."We went back to sleep," Poland said. "It saddens me to say
that...We must do things differently."

for their part, often feel squeezed between parents who abrogate their
school systems that demand high test scores. If the parents and the teachers can't fill the need for affiliation
and guidance that teenagers by nature require, then gangs and cliques--"Trench Coat Mafia" or other wise--
are happy to step in. Outsiders who once were geeky loners now can band together."
David Elkind, author of "All
Grown Up and No Place to Go." says, "Once, not long ago, families were
toward protecting children: providing them with guidance and direction, and with recreation geared to their
developmental levels. But in the aftermath of the 1960s, where every other kind of social convention was
attacked from within, a false sense of family egalitarianism took over...At the turn of the century, we had the
development of pediatrics. Now we have the veneration of geriatrics, "Elkind said. "Now the needs of children
and adolescents are placed below the needs of adults. We have taken a lot away from kids, particularly from
adolescents. We used to see them as immature, in need of adult guidance. Now we see them a sophisticated,
ready for anything.
"It's really horrifying,"
said Arnett, a visiting professor at the Univ. of Maryland. "Some
of it I think (music) is really
poisonous. Youth culture has existed for hundreds of years, but it is hard for me to think of anything before the
last 20 years that was oriented towards such violence."
To John Cole, a professor
of psychology at Duke University, the penchant for violence is the most
in today's youth culture. "We haven't had this previously in our culture." he said, "where kids or teenagers bring
guns to schools and start shooting indiscriminately."
Look at the stats on the
numbers of children that have been raised by just their mothers over the
decades. Especially the past two where the stats exceed some 10 to 15 million children living with just their
mothers. Then add foster homes, adult jails, dent ion centers.
