No, not trying to beat up the police. I simply said they need to know EXACTLY what address they areRead More supposed to be raiding and go to that address, not mistakenly raid the wrong place. Of course I don't have proof that "they knew it was the wrong house" and I did not say that they did know. My point, again, is they need to know exactly what the address of the house is that they are raiding. These raids on the wrong houses occur over & over. Do some research before you try to put others down, Igor. Just for starters, here are places where they went to the wrong address: Longview, TX; DeKalb Co, GA; Dayton, OH; Salt Lake City, UT; Kalamazoo, Mich; Minneapolis, Minn; St Paul, Minn; Galveston, TX; Berwin Hgts, MD; Miami, FL; Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Crown Hgts - All NYC, NY; Evansville, IN; and the list goes on. Don't want to believe me, try googling "Police raid wrong house" or go to and article by Radley Balko-S.W.A.T. Overkill. Now, about that money you want to bet me?

This happens at Lanier and Altoona all the time. It's not the lake, it is the people. TheseRead More drownings are preventable, but not if people ignore the danger of swimming in any lake and refuse to wear a life jacket. Even a good swimmer can get in trouble. Stick to a pool with lifeguards if you want to swim without one. Prayers to this man's family.

Other children can not collude with abuse because of the imbalance of power that exists betweenRead More adults and children, especially when children are afraid and trying to survive. Many child victims minimize or deny abuse. The article states that, there were no obvious signs of abuse or malnutrition" according to the police - if imprisonment and deprivation as though this CHILD were a prisoner of war is not abuse, then what is? He was isolated, left to go crazy alone, dehumanized with no toilet even.....this is sick and these people better go to jail!!!!!
Mary Brown June 27, 2014 at 08:10 pm
Excellent comment, Elizabeth, Elizabeth (6/27/14 @ 5:11pm)! Many people have no clue of the denial,Read More fear, manipulation, mixed signals and parental devotion tied into situations such as this. A dependent child (doesn't even matter that they're in their early teens and sometimes, older) brought up in an environment that is relatively "normal," are hard pressed to go to authorities or authority figures, when something "bad" happens at home; especially if they've been convinced that a sibling or other individual in the home, has somehow hurt, shamed or violated the home and/or parents in some way! Culture can also come into play in situations like this. To all who are looking for someone to "blame," please read "A Child Called It" by Dave Peltzer. It provides a chilling look into the mindset, sickness and aftermath of homes like that of the Wimbush family, and the many people (child welfare departments, churches, family members, school systems and others), who knowing and unknowingly collude to enable these situations to descend into such a demoralizing and unfathomable, abyss.

For each child in the car, you get an additional DUI charge. She now has three just from thisRead More incident. 24 months probation, $1500 fine, 30 days community service, random alcohol testing, license tag forfeiture. Then, before you get you tags and license back, an ignition interlock must be installed.
Tammy Osier June 29, 2014 at 10:39 am
Mr. B....and three strikes and you're out in Ga. I'm glad that Ga. has gotten stricter. Back in theRead More 70's it was considered an 'accident". My mother was killed by a drunk driver and very little happened to him. While I hope that did it for him and he never drank again, my experience is that a slap on the hand only encourages some to continue on as they always have. What Ga. has in place will make her life miserable long enough to hopefully make her think before she ever does anything like that again. The accountability and disruption of your life is a great deterrent, and I'm all for that if it works.

If you really cared about the victims of sex trafficking you wouldn't post names of people arrestedRead More for prostitution. If a prostitute is under 17 they're a child, right? And therefore they're a victim, right? But when they turn 18 they become the scum of the earth and they deserve to have their personal information published everywhere? Have you even stopped to wonder whether the over-18 year old prostitutes you listed are victims or not? Whether it's done voluntarily or not prostitution is an extremely dangerous job. Publishing information like this only makes it easier for stalkers, abusive ex partners, ex pimps, etc to find these people. It also makes it harder for them to find jobs outside of prostitution as posts like these will show up when prospective employers search for their names. You are not a journalist you're a bully.
