Sex Offender Registry

Written on January 8th, 2010 by Suzanneno shouts

When have you last been to the State’s Sex Offender Registry? It’s an eye opening experience. For example, there are 70 offenders within a 3 mile radius of my house. How many do you have? Looking at their convictions it appears that most of them molested kids between 12 and 15 years of age. A few also have convictions where the victim is younger than 12 years old.

SCARY STATISTICS ((http://www.franksfoundation.org/know.shtml))

  • At least 1 out of 4 girls and one out of 6 boys will be sexually abused by age 18
  • At least 90 percent of all childhood sexual abuse victims know their abuser
  • Only 25 percent of childhood sexual abuse cases are even reported; only 5 percent of those cases will even make it to court and of that, 50 percent of these children will be returned to their alleged abuser
  • The average sexual predator will commit 117 assaults before even getting caught
  • The re-arrest rate for convicted child predators is 52 percent
  • One in 10 homes are involved in some form of childhood sexual abuse; this is a leading cause of teen suicide and child prostitution

Children are not safe these days in Delaware

Written on January 7th, 2010 by Suzanneno shouts

First the whole Bradley story and then every day another one…today in the Miflord Beacon was this:

Frederica, Del. -Delaware State Police arrested a 38-year-old Houston man Jan. 2 for allegedly beating his girlfriend’s children and raping one of them.

The man initially told police that he took the 13-year-old boy and 16-year-old girl out for ice cream around midnight and when they returned to the children’s Frederica home, they were attacked by several people, said Sgt. Walter Newton of the Delaware State Police.

The man said the people left and he drove for an hour until he could find help, Newton said.

Police doubted the man’s story and after collecting evidence at the Frederica home, Newton said police charged Wayne A. Jones with two counts of attempted murder, second-degree rape, endangering the welfare of a child, terroristic threatening and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony. He was committed to the Department of Correction in default of $106,500 cash bail.

The 13 year old was flown to Christiana Hospital where he is listed in critical condition with skull fractures and open head wounds, Newton said. The female was taken to Peninsula Regional

Medical Center and later transported to Christiana Hospital where she was admitted with skull fractures and lacerations to the head and body and a broken left hand.

May the assholes all rot in hell

The girl mentioned is my son’s friend. they actually dated a little while ago and he really likes her and cares about her. He wondered why she wasn’t in school and didn’t text him. Him and his friends are outraged, hurt, and pissed – as he says.

Looks like the ass who did it has quite a history of jail time and of blaming the State for doing him wrong. He has taken DOC and offender programs to court a few times. Did the mother know? He is not a registered sex offender, but maybe he just got lucky before by not getting caught or charges being dropped, who knows. This could be him – and if it is, we are talking about contact with DOC since at least 1995.

Mandamus means he filed against the other party saying they were not doing what they were supposed to be doing and he wants a court to compel them to do what they are supposed to be doing. He wants the court to issue a Writ of Mandamus – a mandate if you will.

Habeas Corpus refers to filings that he initiated where he most likely felt that he was wrongfully convicted. Most likely this was filed because he thought that there were errors made during the trial and he wants to court to find cause to overturn his conviction. Pretty much, he either screams about his constitutional rights that were violated or he says his judge was not impartial or that his lawyer was incompetent or that the evidence was tainted – something along those lines anyway.

Child rapist goes to court

Written on December 23rd, 2009 by Suzanneno shouts

UPDATED:

Attorney General Beau Biden will be making a statement this afternoon about the Lewes pediatrician charged with raping 9 children, spokesman Jason Miller said.

Biden is expected to speak at a press conference at 12:30 this afternoon in Georgetown, and will discuss resources for victims, Miller said.

The man charged in the case, Dr. Earl B. Bradley, was scheduled to appear in Sussex County Superior Court this morning for a preliminary hearing — but that hearing has been postponed until next week, officials said.

Earl B. Bradley (formerly) of BayBees Pediatrics is supposed to go to court this morning. However, most likely the hearing will be continued, because he has not yet hired an attorney — or the attorney has not entered his appearance yet. I don’t think he will find an attorney, especially from Sussex County, who will take on this case. Not only because of how people will react, but Sussex County is small and there is a good chance that attorneys in Slower-Lower know one or more of the children that were patients at BayBees Pediatrics OR that they know the parents of those children OR that they represented a parent of a child that was a patient at BayBees. It would suck to be a public defender at this point. BUT, it would also suck to be any of the State police officers that were involved in investigating Bradley for the past year.

State police said he has been the focus of a yearlong criminal investigation stemming from numerous complaints of inappropriate touching of female patients.

HOWEVER, it appears there was not enough evidence? Because…

During the searches of the doctor’s office, police found a small computer data storage device that contained videos of multiple forced sexual acts with child patients — including intercourse, oral sex and fondling — according to court records. The videos were made between Aug. 7 and Dec. 13, police wrote. Several videos are described as showing the doctor, wearing his blue scrubs, yelling orders at babies and toddlers, some of whom are crying or trying to run away. In one video, Bradley has a “violently enraged” expression on his face, police wrote.

These incidents all happened while he was already under investigation. What really brought tears to my eyes was reading in the paper that:

A veteran computer forensic investigator said in court records that a series of video clips lasting almost 15 minutes and showing a 2-year-old were “one of the most violent and brutal attacks on a child of any age that he has seen captured on video.”

If there is such thing as EVIL – he’s it.

SCI and Prisoner Abuse

Written on August 25th, 2009 by redwaterlilyno shouts

Truth? Lies? Or Partial Truths? I am opting for the third. The Ceasar Rodney Institute obviously doesn’t. I do believe that police officers as well as Correctional Officers at times use extensive force; however, I also believe that prisoners are capable of embellishing the circumstances just to get attention, get officers in trouble, and report injuries received during prison fights as injuries received from COs. Do I believe all of them do that? No! But there are always a few that makes things look worse then they are and that strive on ruining other people’s lives. And there are always a few COs that are not professional and that do not treat inmates correctly. I have trouble believing that it is the majority of COs.

What really bothers me about the accusations is the fact that some of the parties involved are currently involved in civil suits and now they are trying to try this case in the newspapers (so far the News Journal does not seem to have picked it up yet). Where is CRI when the Department of Corrections’ budget gets cut even though they need to do something about being understaffed but do not get to hire more Correctional Officers? DOC says that is it currently fully staffed or has only a few vacancies – but what fails to make the media is the fact that they are only a few people short of MINIMUM STAFFING – meaning staffing that covers the bare minimum and still causes officer’s to be told they can’t go home at the end of their shift but they have to work overtime — 8 HOURS OF OVERTIME – just to finally go home for 8 hours and then go to work again, leaving them with not enough time to eat and sleep considering travel time. MINIMUM staffing puts everybody at risk — the officers AND the inmates. People tend to forget that COs, just like prisoners, stay locked up in prison all day and go through some of the same stresses even though they do get to go home — eventually. The suicide rate among COs is extremely high for a reason.

Ahh. I can just hear some of my readers now say that they chose to be COs – it’s not a job they have to do. No, they don’t have to do it, but are you willing to? If yes, why haven’t you applied? If not them – then who? Of course, we could also turn DOC into a private FOR PROFIT institution – then you will really get to see prisoner abuse and inadequate health care for prisoners.

I loved the Cesar Rodney Institute’s statement on their website: “An Open Letter To Carl Danberg poses 32 questions it had hoped the Correction Commissioner would answer. Danberg refused to comment for this series.” — Can I be honest? I would refuse too, because CRI already made up its mind and NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING that Carl Danberg could say would do any good. He does not owe CRI anything, but he does have to answer to the people of the State of Delaware and I hope that, in time, he will.

Also, I wonder why CRI didn’t mention what Sudler, the diabetic that will need to have his last remaining leg amputated, is in prison for – probably because that would make him less the recipient of sympathy. Is it the same Sudler as mentioned here?:

Wilmington- On Sunday, May 11, 2008, at approximately 2:02 p.m., Troopers were called to the 3800 block of North Market Street to investigate the rape of a 8-Year-Old girl. In this case, it had been alleged that Mr. Benjamin Sudler, 55, of the aforementioned address, had been sexually assaulting the 8-year-old girl (–SNIPPED TO REMOVE IDENTIFYING INFORMATION ABOUT THE VICTIM–). The assaults apparently began in November of 2007. A computer check revealed Sudler was wanted by several courts in Delaware and authorities took him into custody. He was transported back to Troop 2 where the investigation into the rape continued. Detectives successfully implicated him in the sexual assault and charged him with the following offenses: four counts of Rape 1st and Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child. He was arraigned and committed to the Howard Young Correctional Institute in lieu of $230,000.00 Cash Only Bond.

He STILL does not deserve to be treated badly and he still deserves to receive treatment for his diabetes – but can DOC really be responsible for monitoring what each inmate buys and eats – had he not bought these items, he could have traded for them somehow else – there really isn’t much that can be done other then locking up inmates 24/7 in their cells – and everybody would scream about that as well – rightfully so.

I believe the accusations need to be investigated and I believe there are truths to the accusations as well as some embellishments — but the way I see it, the media already has made up its mind and found DOC guilty – can there really be such thing as a fair investigation?

Again, let me make this clear — I am AGAINST prisoner abuse and FOR adequate medical care for prisoners. I am all for investigating reports of prisoner abuse. HOWEVER, I refuse to take CRIs report for granted, because it is aimed at making prisoners look good and DOC look bad and talks about hand picked inmates and releases only information about those prisoners that is aimed, again, at getting sympathy for them. The report mentions Sudler being a family man but forgets to mention he raped an 8 year-old girl. Give ALL the info or non – don’t pick through it and only give out the information that gives you the reaction that you desire to get.

Oh yes, and did I forget to mention that my partner is a CO – and she has a much higher chance of getting abused by prisoners and then discarded by the media then there is a chance of her abusing them? We all remember the rape of the Counselor, right?

Local Blogger Sued by Wicomico Jail Warden

Joe Albero is facing a lawsuit filed by Wicomico County Department of Corrections Director Douglas C. Devenyns. There is no word yet as to why Devenyns filed the July 24 lawsuit against Albero, of Delmar, Del., who maintains a blog called “Salisbury News.”

Does anybody have more info on that?

Felton Man Arrested for 6th DUI Offense

Dopirak was charged with his sixth DUI offense, as well as driving while revoked, displaying a revoked license, no registration in possession and no proof of insurance. He was also booked on the third-degree assault charge.

Well, at least he already had a revoked license, I suppose. Many times people get arrested over and over and do not lose their driving priviliges. I am curious as to whose car he was driving.

Surge in anti-gay hate crime cases – San Jose Mercury News

Written on March 17th, 2009 by redwaterlilyno shouts

via Surge in anti-gay hate crime cases – San Jose Mercury News.

Hate crime cases involving anti-gay sentiment shot up in Santa Clara County last year, a striking increase that a leading prosecutor attributes to controversy over Proposition 8, the voter-approved ban on gay marriage.

Anti-gay incidents accounted for more than half of hate-crime cases last year — 56 percent — a big jump from only 15 percent in 2007. There were 14 anti-gay cases out of 25 hate-crime cases in 2008, compared with only 3 out of 20 in 2007.

Bonfire blamed for sparking Santa Barbara wildfire – Yahoo! News

Written on November 18th, 2008 by Suzanneno shouts

Bonfire blamed for sparking Santa Barbara wildfire.

According to the news, one of the wild fires in California stems from a bonfire built by a group of 10 college students.  Their stupidity destroyed 210 homes, some of them multimillion dollar mansions.  Additionally, more then 2 dozen people were injured by these idiots.  I mean, we all know that lighting a fire in California is always a bad idea – because it’s been a dry year and becuase California is prone to wild fires to run rampant. 

So far, NO CHARGES HAVE BEEN FILED.

“It appears this fire was the result of carelessness, not criminal intent”

WHO CARES?  210 families lost their homes, more then 24 people wre injured, forrests were burned down, wild life and possibly pets died – THEY NEED TO GET CHARGED.  I don’t care if it’s intent or stupidty.  They should ahve to pay for the rest of their lives, they should actively have to help with the clean-up, they should ahve to volunteer their time for good causes — Maybe that will make them grow some brains.
