    But what I want to talk about are children who don’t feel safe outside — not because of stranger-danger or threat of immediate injury, but because the police will be called if they’re just playing like we played when we were young. What will members of the Always On Screens Generation be like when they’re adults?

    We live in a hyper-sexualized society where so-called experts think it wiser to push sex on younger and younger children. The abortion industry doesn’t mind at all, because Planned Parenthood can prey on young impressionable teens and pre-teens by telling them that early sex is perfectly fine and can exploit them to sell them abortions when the young girls become pregnant.With that in mind, here’s the latest from Las Vegas, where apparently there are not enough clients for the legal prostitutes so they need to convince children at a young age to become interested in sex.As one report indicates, the...

    BILLINGS, Mont. – A Montana man in prison for raping a girl starting when she was 12 is now charged with trying to persuade her to kill herself by cutting her wrists and taking prescription medication while he watched on a webcam. Michael John Morlan, 21, was out on bail on the rape charges when he spoke with the then-15-year-old girl via Skype last September and told her to commit suicide while he watched to make sure she was doing it right, charging documents said.

According Fagan, the problem needs to be tackled at the so-called grassroots level when men are in their formative years. “Well, I think right now we're talking so much about firing Goodell or punishments. You know, should it be a three game, a two game, a six game, a full year ban? But I think that's a little reactive and not proactive. Domestic violence is something that happens in anger, in...

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the indictment stems from Peterson disciplining his son with a switch, which is a flexible rod.

The man, who cannot be identified, has been charged with indecent dealings of a sexual nature with the children while they were under 10. Court documents reveal he has also been charged with possessing child abuse material which was found after a raid on his home. The man involved denies the allegations, which will come before court later this year. The Thai surrogate mother, Siriwan Nitichad, also known as Aon, lives in the Petchabun province 400 kilometres north of Bangkok.

Olivas, who said he was confused and going through a rough patch at that time of his life time, said the two went their separate ways after the encounter. Arizona law says a child younger than 15 cannot consent to sexual relations with an adult under any circumstance. All of it was put behind him, he thought, until two years ago...

Gangs of men, mainly of Pakistani Muslim heritage, lure white girls as young as 10 with gifts and displays of affection. Next, the girl is raped as a way of “breaking her in”. Once the child’s spirit is subdued, and her mind fogged with drugs, she is sold for sex to multiple men at Ł200 a time. If the girl tries to break away, a gang member might threaten to behead her or firebomb her home. Mohammed Karrar, who was found guilty in the Oxford sex-grooming...

    No country with a Muslim population is immune to grooming gangs. America is on the same path as Europe and trailing not too far behind. In fact, Muslim grooming gangs (mainly Somali) have already found their way to the streets of America. These gangs have been operating for over 10 years in Minnesota, Tennessee, Michigan, and Ohio. The largest grooming case in U.S. history was from Somali immigrant communities in Minneapolis (MN) and Nashville (TN), in which 29 Somali Muslims were indicted in 2010 for kidnapping, raping, and selling underage girls between 2000 and 2010.

One of them is a man named Javed Khan. He is the head of Britain's largest children's charity Barnardo's which now stands accused of having known about the Muslim rape gang problem for well over a decade - but which chose to do next to nothing to confront it. In an ugly interview with Sky News, Khan infuriated viewers - and his normally mild-mannered...

But because the perpetrators were overwhelmingly “Asian” — for the most part, Muslim men from Pakistan — local authorities, from social-services managers to law enforcement, regularly neglected reports of rape, assault, and sex trafficking for fear of being deemed racist. Today, a U.K. newspaper illustrates in ghastly detail what young girls in Rotherham have faced for nearly two decades. The Mirror reports that...

    The boy ate bugs to survive. Beaten and starved, the 7-year-old from Greenville, Pa., was tortured nearly to death by his mother and grandparents until a woman walking her dog by their house saw what looked like a living “human skeleton” and told authorities, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported. “He looked like a Holocaust victim,” Mercer County Detective John J. Piatek told the Tribune-Review. “He had been beaten with a belt every time he tried to get food. He had three abscessed teeth and weighed 20 pounds when he was taken to Children's Hospital. The starvation could have killed him. The...

    Given the link between alcohol consumption during pregnancy and birth defects, should expectant mothers who drink be arrested for assault? If not, it is hard to see why Mallory Loyola is in jail. Loyola, who was arrested last week after giving birth to a baby girl who tested positive for amphetamine, is the first woman to be charged under a new Tennessee law that criminalizes drug consumption by pregnant women. The law, ostensibly aimed at protecting children, is really about punishing what its chief sponsor described as "the worst of the worst": women who not only use arbitrarily proscribed intoxicants...

    Just when you thought there couldn’t be another Planned Parenthood scandal, the pro-life group Live Action finds this: an employee encouraging a 15-year-old girl to engage in sex fantasy games with her boyfriend. In the second episode of a series entitled “SexEd: Planned Parenthood’s Dangerous Sex Advice for Kids,” a Live Action volunteer went undercover at Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains in Denver, Colorado, to see how workers would react to her questions about Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission (BDSM). Unfortunately, this particular employee was all too eager to give the young girl advice about how she and...

    Planned Parenthood faces a legal challenge in Colorado after Cary Smith, of Federal Heights, says she discovered that clinic staff failed to inquire or report about suspected sexual abuse of her 13-year-old daughter after giving her an abortion. It was any mother’s nightmare. According to the lawsuit filed on June 20, 2014, Cary’s daughter, R.Z., was only about six years old when her new step-father, Timothy David Smith, began to sexually abuse her. At this age, she was too young to realize that her step-father’s inordinate attention was actually a crime.

  • Former Durham teacher arrested on student-related sex offenses

    Durham, N.C. — A former teacher for Durham Public Schools was arrested Wednesday on accusations that she had an inappropriate relationship with a student, authorities said Monday. Michelle Smith White, 37, of Penrith Drive, Durham, faces charges of taking indecent liberties with a student and engaging in a sex offense with a student.

Jordan High School, started a friendship with the female student in 2012, when the girl was 15. "Sometime between 2012 and most recently, that evolved into a sexual relationship,"...
