Alabama Man Indicted for Murder, Sodomy of His Daughter, 8

Posted on | September 21, 2015 | 136 Comments


Hiawatha Robinson, 38, had three previous felony convictions — for burglary, receiving stolen property and possession of marijuana — as well as a conviction for misdemeanor domestic violence. Despite his extensive criminal record, however, Robinson was not in jail when police say he killed his daughter during a sexual assault:

Hiawayi Robinson’s father, Hiawatha, has been indicted for murder and sodomy in her death, WKRG reports.
The 8-year-old girl’s body was found in September 2014 in Prichard. She was lying on her back and the lower part of her body was naked.
Three months later, Hiawatha Robinson was charged with her death, and the Mobile County District Attorney’s Office believes Hiawayi died during a sexual assault. He is being held on a $500,000 bail at Mobile County Metro Jail. . . .
In May, Hiawatha was sentenced to 30 months in a federal prison on the gun charge after he pleaded guilty to one count of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.

Meanwhile, the decadent liberal editors at have published a story by a self-described pedophile who says he’s not a bad guy and wants everybody to pity him for his “sexual orientation.”

    Mock me all you want. I don’t care at all.

    I’m surprised that you would mock God though, considering that I’m not the only Christian here.

    “I said it COULD be”

    Yes, and you wanted me to withhold or adjust my opinions based on the assumption that this “COULD be” was true. I am not going to do that. I will still operate on the basis that an author means whatever words his name is attached to. If Nickerson is a real person and has been misrepresented, let him set the record straight through some other publication. I’m sure his public profile may increase after this article, giving him ample opportunity.

    You don’t have to convince me that Salon is an ideological and biased article. However, in my experience, the authors and freelancers who publish on it are usually in sync with its biases. And there were ample hints in Nickerson’s piece that he is a left-leaning person in addition to being a pedophile.

    “What is your intent here? That I am somehow required at the point of a pitchfork to agree with you, or else I’m a liar?”

    I think your appraisal and depiction of your alleged redemption cases are too sunny and naive. Whenever I hear somebody pronounced to be fully “redeemed” or “cured,” I do not swallow it, whether the assurance comes from some conservative church counselor or leftist psychiatrist.

    If you think that objections and skepticism from blog comments about your claims are tantamount to a “pitchfork,” then perhaps we should have issued some “trigger warnings” in this discussion.

    Do you believe that God changes people? If you do, then I rest my case based on this one question.

    If you don’t, then you don’t believe in God, and you won’t believe or understand anything I have to say.

    You’re 100% correct ma’am. The same mentality that opposes you is the same one that puts punishment over rehabilitation in our prison system, and ironically leads to higher recidivism rates, more policing, an erosion of civil liberties, and an ever expanding state. It’s really amazing, coming from the Christian community, too, as if it wasn’t Jesus that redeemed Mary Magdalene? Some people are irredeemable, there is no doubt about this, but the majority are, and they are being thrown away because of this mentality. The sex offender registry has gotten so far off course from its original intention which was to alert people to high risk offenders in their neighborhood, and is now just a Scarlett letter for anyone runs afoul of certain laws, including teens engaging in nothing worse than sending pictures of each other’s bodies back and forth, and an excuse for more invasive policing, and control. I always find it baffling how small government conservatives endorse police state methodology and if you oppose it on solid grounds, you are accused of coddling criminals, or even worse, being a leftist, even though it’s the left that is always looking to use the state to clamp down on opposition.

    Has gay marriage really destroyed the institution of marriage? Not at all. In fact it has actually created family values, and more wholesome lifestyles for homosexual men who previously lead sex filled, debauched, loner lifestyles. If you want to target a group responsible for eroding marriage, family values, and decency, it starts and ends with feminists who hold sway over over a far larger population than homosexuals ever will.

    “Do you believe that God changes people? If you do, then I rest my case based on this one question.”

    Remember Homer Simpson’s words of wisdom: “I guess some people never change. Or, they quickly change and then quickly change back.”

    Even if one accepts the premise that God can change people, that does not mean that people who claim to have changed (or the ones you claim to have seen changed) are among those who were actually changed. Perhaps the percentage of people susceptible to divine grace are rare and infinitesimal, while the many others who purport to have been changed are just opportunistic and using it as a method to re-access and society’s benefits and fool their prospective victims. And the people who often claim to have been changed (convicted criminals and disgraced persons) often have a concurrent secular motive in purporting redemption. Maybe you can weed the pretenders all out, unlike so many other counselors and pastors.

    As I already said, I was under no illusions when I stated an unpopular opinion that any argument I made was going to change anybody’s opinion here. For that matter, even the voice of God coming from on high wouldn’t change anybody’s opinion.

    That was never the intention. The intention was this: stating my own opinion. Of course, that was when I naively thought I was entitled to one.

    Of course you are entitled to your own opinion. You’re just not entitled to a favorable reception for stating your own opinion. Neither is anyone else.

    September 22nd, 2015 @ 4:14 pm

    I didn’t expect a favorable reception. That’s the thing about unpopular opinions, isn’t it? I did learn quite a lot about some of the commenters here, though, so the experience hasn’t been an unfruitful one.

    “Of course, that was when I naively thought I was entitled to one.”

    You suggest that your experience with the other commenters made you think you were not entitled to have an opinion. Besides giving you an unfavorable reception, what did they do that prevented you from having and stating your unpopular opinion?

    You know, I understand that you don’t know God, you don’t know how He works, and you don’t know how to tell real redemption from false, the words of a cartoon buffoon notwithstanding.

    But what I don’t understand is you having to get a personal dig in, in your last sentence, when you don’t know me at all either.

    “the words of a cartoon buffoon notwithstanding”

    If King Lear had listened to his fool, he’d a have been in better straits.

    “when you don’t know me at all either”

    You were presenting and submitting your own personal credibility and opinion as some sort of evidence for us to consider and acknowledge. So you made it personal to begin with. You kept assuring us that you had personally counseled and witnesses many people who were 100% redeemed and rehabilitated from whatever immorality or vice that afflicted them. And you claimed that Nickerson was a candidate to be one such case, despite you never having met him or knowing anything about him beyond his Salon essay. Broadcasted and abbreviated over the internet, those idealized and rosy pronouncements just sound like kitsch and sentimentality.

    I don’t believe there is such a thing as a reformed pedophile and would not care if there was because anyone who sexually assaults a child should never be out of a cage again. That being said if someone is sexually attracted to children, but has never acted on it which I find hard to believe (as acting on it should include the possession of any child pornography since a child would be assaulted in its production), but let’s say this person(s) exists there is no way that they should be given employment where they have contact with children, and no parent should let their children anywhere near them so their family integration would necessarily be limited, and obviously no sane person would have an intimate relationship with them as what is the point when they are sexually attracted to something they are not, but of course as someone without a criminal record they should be employable in a job that only deals with adults — beyond that what sort of accommodation do they deserve or need? I would not accommodate cross-dressers, diaper wearers, those people who get off on women crushing small mammals with high heels, plushies, the people who like used tampons and dirty underwear, swingers or any other fetish — my suggestion is they don’t announce it…

    Nickerson: “If we are going to make it in the world without offending, we need your help.”

    Sounds too much like an ultimatum. Doesn’t sound like someone who thinks that raping children is evil. Doesn’t sound like someone who believes pedophiles are serious about controlling themselves. Doesn’t sound like they really want to.

    He describes a pedophile’s desires as a “handicap”. It’s not a handicap. It’s evil.

    Now the ones from Africa are I look forward to. According to the emails I’ve received over the last few years, I must have hundreds of millions of dollars just waiting for me to send for. Gosh between work and home projects I just never seem to find the time to get back in touch with those good people. I’m sure they’ll continue to hold on to it for me – they seem like such nice people.

    “And as for your examples, I do not think the temperate alcoholic or the chaste homosexual deserve any special sympathy either.”

    While it maybe noteworthy to recognize one’s forbearance in these circumstances neither praise nor sympathy is in order when a person restrains them self from acting in a manner that causes harm to others.

    Redefining marriage destroyed it – if marriage can be dissolved for essentially any reason after 90 days, there isn’t much commitment to it. Same sex marriage isn’t the cause of the destruction of marriage, it’s a symptom of subjectifying it.

    Oh, and since we redefined marriage to change the persons involved, whatever makes you think that the homosexual lifestyle won’t seek to further redefine it to include acceptance of “open marriages”? They are already doing this, and are quite pleased with the idea. And once they get some traction, my guess is you will no longer be able to openly state your faithfulness to your own spouse lest you be deemed a “hater” who thinks his own marriage is “better”.
