Weirdos, Freaks and Degenerates

Well, yes, that would be a fairly accurate description of the MSNBC audience, but I had in mind the latest news from Ohio:

Three Ashland residents held a cognitively disabled woman and her child against her will for two years and forced her to perform manual labor for them, law enforcement officials said in a news release issued Tuesday. According to various published reports, a fourth person has been charged in connection with the case, but authorities have declined to name that individual.
The conspiracy included beating the disabled woman and her child, threatening the woman with a firearm, threatening to kill the woman and her child, threatening the woman and her child with large snakes, and forcing them to sleep in a padlocked room with a large iguana, according to charges filed in U.S. District Court.
Jordie L. Callahan, 26; Jessica L. Hunt, 31; and Daniel J. Brown, 33, were all arrested Tuesday and charged with forced labor. If convicted, they could face life in prison.

You may ask yourself, why would a “cognitively disabled woman and her child” be especially coveted for this kind of situation?

[The victim] suffered from a cognitive disability and received monthly public assistance payments . . .

(“Public assistance payments” = welfare.)

Hunt reportedly was in possession of all of [the victim]’s government benefits cards and their associated PINs. Hunt normally used nearly all of the money on the cards and rarely gave any money to [the victim], according to the affidavit.

Being “cognitively disabled,” in other words, made the victim a sort of human ATM, whose government benefits made her a dependable source of cash for her captors. So if you were wondering how Obama won Ohio — well, “low-information voters,” IYKWIMAITYD.

One more interesting detail, which is why someone called my attention to this story: Remember that in the case of accused child rapist and murderer David Renz, he had a juvenile record; when he was 15, he molested a 9-year-old girl. Coincidentally (or not) one of the perps in this Ohio case also had a juvenile record:

Jordie Callahan, one of three Ashland residents arrested Wednesday in a federal human trafficking case, previously was found delinquent as a child by virtue of committing acts which would have constituted the offense of rape if committed by an adult. When he was 15, he engaged in a sexual encounter with an 11-year-old girl.

Weird, huh? This is something that the “Free Kate” supporters refuse to recognize: Criminals usually begin their criminal careers as juvenile offenders. Kaitlyn Hunt‘s defenders insist that it would be wrong to treat her as a criminal for having sex with a 14-year-old, and insist that it is absurd to say that Kaitlyn is a danger to the community merely because she broke the law. (It’s not as if Kaitlyn has any tendency toward violence, right?) Besides, the “Free Kate” movement says, she was 18 and her girlfriend was 14 — only four years apart!

Yes, and that was the exact age difference between Jordie Callahan and the 11-year-old girl he molested when he was 15.


A contempt for the law and a recklessness in pursuit of selfish gratification are characteristic of career criminals, who typically begin showing a wayward streak as juvenile offenders. To claim that prosecuting teenagers for breaking the law is a violation of their “rights” is to encourage and enable this lawless hoodlum attitude.

Even while this dangerous attitude of lawlessness is being deliberately fomented in the name of “rights,” we find young people being threatened and bullied in the name of “tolerance”:

A Tennessee community college professor ordered her students to wear ribbons supporting gay rights and said those who believed in the traditional definition of marriage are just “uneducated bigots” who “attack homosexuals with hate” . . .
Students in a general psychology class at Columbia State Community College were directed by their professor to wear “Rainbow Coalition” ribbons for an entire day and express their support for the homosexual community . . .

A psychology professor? The inmates are running the asylum. And also, probably, watching waaaayy too much MSNBC.

    For the West is empty, even if it has not yet become really aware of it. An extraordinarily inventive civilization, surely the only one capable of meeting the challenges of the third millennium, the West has no soul left. At every level – nations, races, cultures, as well as individuals – it is always the soul that wins the decisive battles. It is only the soul that forms the weave of gold and brass from which the shields that save the strong are fashioned. I can hardly discern any soul in us….

    Hunt attorney files motion to remove judge on case

    VERO BEACH — The attorney for Kaitlyn Hunt [Julia Graves] is strongly objecting to a residing judge’s decision to set a date for the start of the her teen-sex trial in September — a date the attorney says is unfair and premature, setting it before more than 200 other criminal cases.

    Hunt’s attorney Julia Graves, is calling for Circuit Judge Robert Pegg to take himself off the case in a court motion.

    The problem is Graves spent all of her time doing the little boo hoo press conferences and Facebook crap and now it comes time put up or shut up and whoops….she has no case! Now little Katie Hunt is facing big girl charges and the State, as it should will not back down, good for you Mr.
    Workman! Oh and let’s not forget the black light party Kate had at the gay bar in PSL

    Do your job, judge, and get on with this case! Off to jail with Hunt.

    Have no idea when it was filed – I just saw the article now.

    And… one does wonder if Graves isn’t projecting her accusations on Workman – because in fact that’s her problem right there. She says Workman has many other cases assigned to him – and claims that this should be some indication the state can’t prosecute Hunt. If her client were so innocent, why doesn’t she have the proof so readily? And since when can’t a state attorney not handle multiple cases at once?

    “According to Graves, she handled a similar case, involving a young male
    defendant and a female victim, that took 19 months to conclude.”

    To conclude or to start? Notice that Graves is objecting they start the trial – not that they conclude it quickly. Maybe she’s the one taking on too many cases for her ability to handle them, and now wants to claim that’s the state attorney’s problem.

    I do wonder how many child molestors and sexual perverts Julia Graves has a penchant for “defending.”

    I am not sure science can explain Schmalfeldt, but he should consider this gig.

    These types of motions are pretty common in high profile cases. Defense attorneys have to make certain moves to preserve issues for a possible appeal. Here, Graves is arguing, basically, that the judge’s managing of his own docket is evidence of bias against her client. That is pretty thin gruel, because a judge has virtually absolute discretion regarding courtroom scheduling. I suspect, but do not know (I do not know the internal status of the case, e.g., has Graves turned over her witness list to the prosecution, as promised), that there may have been some tendency toward foot-dragging, and this was shot across the bow by the judge.

    The other thing to think about is the question of how much having a homosexual problem or agenda will cloud or pervert a person’s judgement in all areas of life, but especially regarding sexual crimes. Imagine if this judge were a woman with a homosexual problem, most likely it would be good-bye justice for the victim. Basically every time people hire a person with a homosexual problem or a strident “normalize homosexuality” agenda, they are corrupting an institution from functioning properly.

    That’s why non-discrimination laws related to sexual orientation must be scrapped from the books.

    I have no issue with slavers being shot out of hand.

    But, if we must, give them a trial, then shoot out their knees and put a round into their gut. Forbid anyone to approach to provide medical assistance, and let them die of sepsis.

    As a former long-term resident of the town of Ashland, I can personally vouch that a large majority of those townsfolks are good people. Besides, Mittens outpolled Obama in Ashland County almost 2:1. Believe me when I say that these horrible people are not indicative of the town’s culture, etc.
