6 Year Old 1st Grader Hunter Punished with the Cardboard Wall of Shame at Lincoln Elementary in Grants Pass, OR Because His Mother Got Him To School Late
READING, WRING AND THE CARDBOARD WALL OF SHAME …
Why is it that it seems that those in control of educating today’s children in schools have the least amount of judgement? Sadly, we are presented with yet another example of school officials who should be flogged for their actions. A first grade boy at the Lincoln Elementary in Grants Pass, Oregon was punished by having to sit behind the cardboard wall of shame while eating lunch in the cafeteria with his classmates. WHAT? This was his punishment for not something he did, but for something his mom did. It appears that little Hunter was late to school because his mom’s car has trouble starting in the morning sometimes. So let’s understand this, the 6 year old has to suffer this embarrassment as a punishment for something he did not do, nor could control? Seriously? I am all for holding children accountable in school, teaching them manners, how to interact with others with respect and teaching them there are rules, but this is insane and over the line.
An Oregon school district is reviewing its tardiness punishments after a picture posted on Facebook of a 6-year-old sitting behind a cardboard screen in the lunchroom generated widespread outrage.
The Grants Pass School District issued a statement saying it “is taking the concerns raised very seriously,” and the punishment “was never intended to isolate or stigmatize students.”
Nicole Garloff says her son, Hunter, was upset when she dropped him off late at Lincoln Elementary School, so she checked on him at lunchtime. She found him sitting behind a cardboard screen. She took him home, and posted a photo on Facebook. So did the boy’s grandmother.
Just how ignorant are those who are educating our children? District school officials wrote that their practice of separating students behind a cardboard shield during lunch “was never intended to isolate or stigmatize students.” WHAT!!! What else could it possible do but ISOLATE OR STIGMATIZE a student. ARE YOU FRIGGING STUPID!!! What else could putting some one behind a barrier do but isolate them. We are told by our liberal edumacators that dodge-ball is stigmatizing to children. That keeping score in stigmatizing to children. We need to give everyone an award and prize so not to make some children feel … “uncomfortable”. BUT THIS IS OK.
UPDATE I: Backlash from parents over the Cardboard wall of Shame …
The boy’s parents got an apology from principal Missy Fitzsimmons on Thursday and were confident no more kids would be `placed on display” like that again. Exactly, how long was this going on?
Officials at Lincoln Elementary in Grants Pass say they plan to change the consequences for students who are tardy after a grandmother’s photo of her first-grade grandson stuck behind a cardboard wall in the school lunchroom prompted widespread outrage on Facebook and in phone calls to the district.
In a posting on the school’s web page, district officials wrote Thursday that their practice of separating students behind a cardboard shield during lunch “was never intended to isolate or stigmatize students.”
UPDATE II: Grant’s Pass, OR School District 7.
Over the past few days, there has been considerable general and social media attention regarding the Lincoln Elementary School Attendance/Tardy Catch-up Protocol. Yesterday afternoon, Principal Fitzsimmons was able to meet with both parents to discuss their concerns. The meeting was productive. The parents’ concerns were politely discussed and, ultimately, the issues were resolved to the satisfaction of both the parents and the school. All parties involved believe that an appropriate resolution has been reached and are anxious to move forward with their normal daily routines.
As a result of the concerns raised, the District ended the learning catch up location at Lincoln Elementary School. Going forward, a separate, supervised classroom has been designated for necessary catch-up work. The District and Lincoln Elementary will continue to work with families on an individual basis to encourage and promote student attendance.
REALITY CRIME …
Bill Montag, the 67 year old father of reality television star Heidi Montag, has been arrested and charged with multiple counts of child sex abuse and incest. A 29 page arrest affidavit outlines years of abuse that Bill Montag allegedly inflicted on a girl starting when she was 13 years old. The abuse was said to have began in 1993 and continued until she was 17 years old. The arrest affidavit also indicates Montag abused the victim at least 50 different times. The court docs describe the abuse:
“[Bill Montag] groomed [the victim] with back rubs in her bedroom in the basement of their home,” court documents state, going on to charge that the ongoing abuse escalated to Montag attempting to insert a vibrator into the young teen’s vagina, and then developed yet further, resulting in Montag allegedly performing oral sex on the girl when she was 16.
The victim told authorities that she came forward in order to save other girls from becoming victims. The identity of victim of sexual assault will not be released to protect the victim. However, the victim cannot be either Heidi or Holly Montag, as they are too young to fit the profile. But because of the incest charges, the victim is obviously a family member.
Reality television star Heidi Montag’s father, Bill Montag of Glenwood Springs, is in custody and charged with several counts of child sex abuse and incest, according to a court records filed in Arapahoe County.
Montag was arrested Thursday evening by Aspen police. A 29-page arrest affidavit outlines years of abuse Montag allegedly inflicted on a girl starting when she was 13 years old.
The abuse allegedly began in 1993 and continued until she was 17 years old.
Due to the statute of limitations, Montag is only eligible to be charged with crimes that occurred after July 1st, 1996, when the victim would have been 16 years old.
TMZ reports sources connected to Heidi and Spencer … the alleged victim has significant credibility problems.
That is a tough call to say that whether whoever this source is does not have an agenda, or speaks the truth. Charges like sex abuse and incest, if true, would cause speculation as to who else Bill Montag abused. A skeleton that some not ready to deal with would not want to be made public.
Our sources who are very close to Heidi and Spencer tell us … they are very familiar with the accuser who “is determined to destroy the family.” They say she has stalked Heidi and Spencer at various public appearances to the point security had to remove her. Heidi and Spence believe Bill Montag will be exonerated.
32 Year Old Chicago Man (Judex Colon) Sexually Assaults 4 Year Old Girl on Bus After Just Having Registered as a Sex Offender
THIS IS THE REASON WHY YOU SHOULD LOCK THE DOOR AND THROW AWAY THE KEY WITH SEX OFFENDERS
A 32 year old Chicago convicted sex offender, Judex Colon, has been arrested for the sexual assault of a 4 year old girl on a CTA bus. The story sounds sick enough with that alone; however, it gets worse if possible. The habitual sex offender boarded a city bus after just registering as a sex offender at the Chicago Police Headquarters, sat down next to an innocent 4 year old girl and sexually assaulted her. ARE YOU SERIOUS!?! This deviant was on his way home from registering as a sex offender and he commits a sex crime! Colon was charged with predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim under the age of 13 and held without bond. Thirteen, the girl was 4!!! The Class X charges carries a sentence of 6 to 30 years in prison on conviction.
Here is a shock, this POS has a criminal history of sexual assault. Colon was previously convicted in 2008 of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a victim under the age of 13 in Lake County, Indiana. Colon sexually abused two girls while working as a carnival-ride operator. He was also convicted of failure to register as a sex offender in Cook County in 2013 and sentenced to two years in prison.
A Chicago man who had just registered as a sex offender is charged with sexual assault for allegedly groping a four-year-old girl on his bus ride home, reports CBS Chicago.
Judex Colon, 32, boarded a city bus Tuesday afternoon and sat down next to the girl, according to a statement from the Cook County state’s attorney’s office. At the time, he was returning from registering as a sex offender at the Chicago Police Headquarters, according to the station.
While riding the bus, Colon “placed his hands on the victim over her clothes and then lifted the child’s jacket and continued to inappropriately touch and rub the victim,” according to the state’s attorney’s office. Colon then allegedly got off the bus and ran away.
The girl, who was riding the bus with relatives, was so frightened by the incident that she urinated on herself, prosecutors said. She told her mother about the assault after arriving home.
At what point do we take these crimes against children seriously and throw these SOB’s in prison for life? How about when he is sent back to general population in prison, this POS is given a shirt that says,”I sexually assault children”.
A police booking photo showed Colon, who was arrested Wednesday, wearing an orange T-shirt that read, “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted and used against you.”
He appeared to be wearing the same shirt under a black hoodie in court Friday.
35 Year Old Wendy Holland Sentenced to 219 Years in Prison for Sodomy, Sexual Abuse & Incestuous Sex Ring in Molesting Children (VIDEO)
Wendy Holland sentenced to 219 years in prison and it probably wasn’t even enough for her heinous crimes …
On Thursday, 35 year old Wendy Holland was sentenced to 219 years for her role in an incestuous sex ring accused of molesting children for years. Holland was previously convicted of incest, sodomy, sexual abuse, sexual torture, child endangerment and molestation. Prior to sentencing Judge Jody Bishop stated in the ”Fourteen years I’ve been on the bench, I have never seen a case come as close as bad as this one has been in terms of acts of sexual abuse.” Wendy Holland is the aunt of Brittany Wood who went missing at age 19 in May of 2012 and is now presumed dead. Defendant, William Brownlee, 50, received the maximum sentence of 20 year s for his crimes. This POS was convicted of sodomy and sexual abuse in October 2014. Judge Bishop stated the maximum sentence was not long enough. Agreed!
Holland, one of the leaders of an incestuous sex ring, was sentenced Thursday by a Baldwin County judge to 219 years in prison.
Holland, 35, stood expressionless as Judge Jody Bishop sentenced Holland for sex crimes she committed to children. She was convicted by a jury on charges of sodomy, sexual torture, and sex abuse to a child under age 12.
“Fourteen years I’ve been on the bench, I have never seen a case come as close as bad as this one has been in terms of acts of sexual abuse,” Bishop said before sentencing. “The court can’t … understand why you did all of this action.”
Also sentenced Thursday was family friend, William “Billy” Brownlee, 50, to 20 years in prison. He also participated in deviant sexual acts to children inside the Wood homes in Stockton and Fairhope.
Brownlee and Holland also face pending charges in Mobile County.
Holland and Brownlee were among 11 people charged with sex crimes following the disappearance in 2012 of a suspected victim of the ring, 19-year-old Brittney Wood.
In a letter read in court, the underage female victim in both cases said years of abuse left her traumatized. She has a hard time trusting anyone, gets angry easily and rarely feels safe.
“I was a little girl being held down and raped,” wrote the victim, who was in court.
Authorities said the two were part of a group of relatives and friends who sexually abused children and swapped their own kids for sex for years.
Holland is the widow of the alleged leader of the group, Donnie Holland, who was Brittney Wood’s uncle. The teen went missing around the time Holland was found with a gunshot to the head; his death was later ruled a suicide.
Even without Brittney Wood to testify, two of her uncles and an older brother already pleaded guilty to sex charges before juries convicted Wendy Holland and Brownlee.

Memphis, Tennessee Dead Beat Dad: 50 Year Old Terry Turnage Has Fathered 26 Children with 20 Different Women
Sorry, but I think it is time the Court orders Mr. Turnage to be neutered.
50 year old Terry Turnage will not be getting any father of the year awards any time soon. Unless the award because a reward for someone fathering the most children. Turnage has fathered 26 children with 20 different women to date and counting. Twenty-three of them in Shelby County, TN and it appears 3 more across the river in Forrest City, Arkansas. Three women in Forrest City went to court asking for child support from Terry Turnage. He didn’t show up. I don’t know who is more pathetic, Turnage or the 20 woman. What are the odds that all of the twenty woman are single mothers, getting public assistance from our tax dollars. Some how this walking serial impregnation is allowed to just continue along his merry way. UNREAL. Sorry, but this is serial child abuse.
Just curious, where is Barack Obama, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson speaking out against this and the destruction of the black family structure? No where of course.
The Paternity Complaint can be read HERE.
The Tennessee deadbeat who has fathered 26 children with 20 different women has again been ordered by a judge to make child support payments, this time for a two-year-old Arkansas boy, court records show.
Terry Turnage, a 50-year-old Memphis resident, was ordered this month to pay $60 per week to Miesha Davis, mother of the pair’s son Ja’Voin. The support order came as a result of a paternity complaint filed on
Davis’s behalf by Arkansas’s Office of Child Support Enforcement.
A Circuit Court judge also ordered Turnage to “maintain health care insurance” for the child “when reasonably available” through his employer, and pay $365 in court fees.
According to Arkansas court records, state officials have filed income withholding notices with a Memphis company that operates a McDonald’s restaurant where Turnage has supposedly worked (and earned $247.28 weekly).
The sad, but all to common conclusion …
Cedar Park Police had been searching for two year old Colton Turner, whose mother was being held in nearby Williamson County on a charge of abandoning and endangering a child. Sadly, the police have discovered the remains of the missing two year old boy. Colton’s mother, identified as Meagan Work, says she last saw Colton in Austin in July. Police say Work is homeless and that the two lived out of Work’s car in Houston, Austin and Cedar Park.
The police are now investigating this missing persons case as a homicide and vowed to bring all those responsible in Colton’s death to justice.

Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson Indictment in Child Injury Case … Warrant Issued for His Arrest (Update: Peterson Booked on Child Abuse Charge, Posts Bond)
AND ANOTHER BLACK EYE FOR THE NFL …
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been indicted in Montgomery County, Texas for reckless or negligent injury to a child. The indictment is in regards to Peterson hitting his 4 year old son this past summer with a branch, referred to as a switch, as a form of punishment. Peterson states that this is how he was punished as a child. A grand jury seated earlier this summer decided not to charge Peterson with a crime. However, that was not the case with the new one. According to accounts, the incident resulted in multiple injuries to the child. The boy lives with his mother in Minnesota but was on a visit to Texas several months ago when Peterson disciplined him with the switch. Peterson was taken into custody at 1 a.m. Saturday in Montgomery County, Texas, and was released on $15,000 bond, according to NFL.com. If convicted, Adrian Peterson could face two years in prison.
Adrian Peterson has been deactivated by the Vikings and will not play this Sunday against the New England Patriots.
According to law-enforcement sources, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson beat his 4-year-old son with a tree branch as a form of punishment this summer, an incident that allegedly resulted in multiple injuries to the child. According to reports, Peterson has been indicted in Montgomery County, Texas for injury to a child.
The “whooping” – as Peterson put it when interviewed by police – occurred in Spring, Texas, in May. Peterson’s son had pushed another one of Peterson’s children off of a motorbike video game. As punishment, Peterson grabbed a tree branch – which he consistently referred to as a “switch” – removed the leaves and struck the child repeatedly.
The beating allegedly resulted in numerous injuries to the child, including cuts and bruises to the child’s back, buttocks, ankles, legs and scrotum, along with defensive wounds to the child’s hands. Peterson then texted the boy’s mother, saying that one wound in particular would make her “mad at me about his leg. I got kinda good wit the tail end of the switch.”
Adrian Peterson’s lawyer, Rusty Hardin later released the following statement:
Adrian Peterson has been informed that he was indicted by a grand jury in Montgomery County, Texas for Injury to a Child. The charged conduct involves using a switch to spank his son. This indictment follows Adrian’s full cooperation with authorities who have been looking into this matter. Adrian is a loving father who used his judgment as a parent to discipline his son. He used the same kind of discipline with his child that he experienced as a child growing up in east Texas. Adrian has never hidden from what happened. He has cooperated fully with authorities and voluntarily testified before the grand jury for several hours. Adrian will address the charges with the same respect and responsiveness he has brought to this inquiry from its beginning. It is important to remember that Adrian never intended to harm his son and deeply regrets the unintentional injury.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office released the following statement on Friday evening:
On Thursday, September 11, 2014, a Montgomery County Grand Jury, “true billed”, Adrian Lewis Peterson on a charge of injury to a child. On today’s date at 2:47 PM, a warrant was issued and entered for the arrest of Adrian Peterson for that charge.
Since the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office has referred the case to the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, and the investigation has led to a, “true bill”, on a criminal offense, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will not discuss details in reference to the case or investigation.
At the time of this release, Adrian Peterson is not in custody at the Montgomery County Jail and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office does not have any details in the arrest of Adrian Peterson.
Peterson’s team, the Vikings, released the following statement on Friday evening:
The Vikings are in the process of gathering information regarding the legal situation involving Adrian Peterson. At this time, we will defer further questions to Adrian’s attorney Rusty Hardin.
One of the darkest weeks in NFL history took another disturbing twist Friday when a warrant was issued in Texas for the arrest of Adrian Peterson, the face of the Vikings, over his treatment of one of his children.
Peterson faces an indictment accusing him of reckless or negligent injury to a child stemming from Peterson’s decision earlier this year to discipline his 4-year-old son by beating him with a ‘‘switch.’’
The Vikings responded by quickly deactivating Peterson for Sunday’s home opener against New England at TCF Bank Stadium. Peterson will surrender to Houston police, his attorney said.
Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson turned himself in to Montgomery County, Texas, authorities early Saturday morning.
He was booked into the Montgomery County jail at 1:06 a.m. CT and released at 1:35 a.m. CT after posting the $15,000 bond.
40 Year Old Tatanysha Hedman Arrested for Setting her 52 Year Old Husband Vincent Phillips on Fire After Catching Him Molesting Her 7 Year Old Daughter
Arrested, she should have been given a medal …
52 year old Vincent Phillips ran from his apartment and drove to a nearby Skyway convenience store screaming “I’m on fire!” Sounds like he is the victim, doesn’t it? However, appearances can be deceiving. Phillips was doused with gasoline and set on fire by his wife, 40 year old Tatanysha Hedman. However, some one does not do something this extreme unless there is a real reason to set a Momma Bear off. It would appear that Tatanysha Hedman caught her husband molesting her 7 year old daughter. Hedman said she did it because shooting him “was too nice.” Vincent Phillips is now facing sex crime charges. However, the police also arrested Tatanysha Hedman and she has been booked into King County Jail for investigation of assault and arson woman suspected of setting husband on fire.
After a mother in Renton, Washington, caught her husband allegedly molesting her 7-year-old daughter, she apparently planned a violent revenge plot.
Tatanysha Hedman, 40, reportedly told police that she decided to douse her husband, Vincent Phillips, 52, in gasoline while he slept and then light him on fire.
She told police that simply shooting him would have been “too nice” given the circumstances.
Phillips reportedly ran into a nearby gas station seeking help after he was able to put himself out. The man was badly burned and had to be hospitalized in intensive care.
Phillips is also now facing sex crime charges involving the 7-year-old girl, who is his stepdaughter. The extent of his alleged crimes were unknown as of Wednesday afternoon.
This child sex offender should probably count his lucky stars and pray that his wife did not go Lorena Bobbitt on him.
James Wright, Father of Missing 6 Year Old Jenise Paulette Wright, Previously Charged with Molesting his Then 8 year-Old Stepdaughter
RUT-ROH, this is hardly a good sign. If anyone wondered why the 8 and 12 year old children were removed and put into Child Protective Service …
KIROTV is reporting that James Wright, the father of missing six year old Jenise Paulette Wright in Bremerton, WA has been previously charged with molesting his then 8 year old step-daughter in 1999. James Wright was accused of child molestation and fourth-degree assault in 1999. Wright would later pleaded guilty to the assault charge, the molestation charges were dropped. So far there has been no sign of the 6 year old little girl as 100′s search for Jenise Paulette Wright. Both parents have been given lie detector tests; however, the results have not been made public.
The father of a missing Bremerton girl was once charged with molesting his then 8 year-old stepdaughter.
KIRO 7 has obtained court records from Whatcom County showing James Wright was accused of child molestation and fourth-degree assault in 1999. He later pleaded guilty to the assault charge, the molestation charges were dropped.
Kitsap County sheriff’s investigators say Wright and his wife Denise have both submitted to a polygraph, or lie detector test. The results have not been made public but both are said to be cooperating with the search and investigation.
Two of the Wright’s children, ages 8 and 12, have been removed from the home by state Child Protective Services due to what’s described as “probable cause developed during the investigation.” No other details have been released.
James Wright, the father of a missing 6-year-old girl in Washington State was previously charged with molesting a young family member, however, police say he is not a suspect or a person of interest in his daughter’s disappearance. What else would they say at this time when they are looking to get his cooperation in Jenise’s disappearance?
