Minn. cheerleader accused of prostituting 16-year-old cognitively delayed teammate
FOX News ^ | June 5, 2013

Posted on 06/05/2013 8:41:54 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

An 18-year-old Minnesota high school cheerleader allegedly prostituted her younger, cognitively delayed teammate by creating an online ad and taking her to see potential customers, pocketing $60 in one case.

Montia Marie Parke faces felony charges of sex trafficking and promoting prostitution for the acts involving her 16-year-old classmate.

Parker was a senior at Hopkins High School when she allegedly set up a Backpage.com ad for the 16-year-old, driving her to an apartment to have oral sex with a man, and taking the $60 the girl made. Authorities allege Parker and the girl drove to another home the next day, but left after the man refused oral sex.

"cognitively delayed"

That's a new one! I assume it's the new PC term of the day for "retarded".

That is how I interpreted it. I am searching for other articles to see how it is termed.

It could mean anything. Probably a newly invented condition so that more people can get on the government dole through disability.

Look at the “learned helplessness”. That is EXACTLY what the government does by giving out free money to every person who walks through the doors of the welfare office.

Montia is from Maple Grove, which is a long way from Hopkins H.S. with many high schools in between. I’m guessing this was a racial balance enrollment, as Hopkins used to be a nice white working class town.

How sad and how despicable of the so called friend. All of us are taught and we trust our teachers (family especially) it dose not mean they are truthful or honorable people.

God bless this young girl used and betrayed by her so called friend. Betrayal of trust is as a knife to the heart. MO!

I remember when Hopkins wasn’t really a suburb and I had friends who lived at a place called the ‘Funny Farm’. That was before the serpentine main street when cruising up and down the streets was a big deal.

I'm a teacher, although not a Special Education teacher.

In layman's terms (and I consider myself a layman), cognitive delay might best be described as extreme immaturity.

This 16 year old girl may have been functioning as though she was half her age.

On a scale of mental impairment, this is not as severe as mental retardation, but it is approaching it.

Imagine a 16 year old girl cutting out paper dolls and playing with Play-Doh. Perfectly acceptable childhood behavior, but out of sync with her age.

This type of delay is also evident in academics. This 16 year old may be able to comprehend and do basic operations with fractions, but be baffled by grade level mathematics. By contrast, a mentally retarded child would probably be unable to do even that.

One thing as a teacher I've never understood... if there is a "delay" does the child ever catch up? Not that I've seen, but certainly they are capable of working and earning a living.

The word “retard” means “to make slow.” In Latin-based languages, specifically French, “retard” means slow.

As such, this is absolutely political correctness substitution of one word, that is deemed as “hurtful” for another word meaning the exact same thing.

By using the term ‘delayed’ one would assume that at some point in time an epiphany would occur and the subject would be back on schedule as a functioning and maturing adult.

Isn’t this just ‘newspeak’ to obfuscate the truth?

It's called the "urban-suburban" program ... they use it here in Rochester NY.
See, when the poooor, under-privleged, under-represented inner-city thug gets to sit in whitey's suburban classroom, said thug will start acting semi-human and all the world's problems will go away.
Fact is, all the program does is allow the ungrateful thugs to spread their violent and anti-social behavior throughout the new school.
As this program grows (and Section 8 MFers slither into town too), the cost of providing security in the suburban schools has quadrupled.

“She is in high school... she’s on the cheerleading team”.

High schools have special education classes for ED (emotionally disturbed) and special ed (that covers everything from mild to severe mental retardation, autism, etc). Many high schools will allow a kid from the special education sector to join a team. It is an ego boosting act so that the child can feel like they participated in a “sport” or event. There is a high school in our area that has allowed a Down Syndrome boy to join the football team. He works out and suits up but doesn’t get any pt. However, he is still a team member.

Yes, you are correct. With "delayed" children, things can get odd. There are sometimes no physical indicators that we can see with mentally retarded children. This girl may look exactly like her classmates.

I teach a delayed boy in middle school who is a good athlete. He plays on the football team.

What is heartbreaking about this story is that these children are often desperate for the attention and acceptance of their peers. I'm sure she was thrilled to be "befriended" by the older girl.

What makes this more than sad and just infuriating is that many special needs kids are so trusting. They want to be accepted by others. They want to be liked. They want to be included in the things the “other” kids get to enjoy. I have the feeling this girl had no idea she was being used (pimped out). She probably just felt she had a friend and was easily swayed not to tell her parents or anyone else. Another case of preying on the weak and innocent. As for your middle schooler... good for him! Not only is the physical exercise great for him but to belong to a group... of buddies.. has got to be very special for him.

Calm down. It was a reference to Obama’s Trayvon Martin statement. Why does everyone at FR get all uppity when someone puts “Obama” and “daughters” in the same sentence? Sheesh. Thanks for playing internet policeman, though.
