Crackhead Stripper Mom Says: ‘I’ve Made a Lot of Bad Decisions in My Life’

Posted on | September 16, 2016 | 1 Comment

Reva McCullough dances at an Ohio strip club under the stage name ‘Mercedes.’

“It is better for all the world if, instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. … Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, 1927

Historians in recent decades have generally disapproved of Justice Holmes’ argument in the infamous Buck v. Bell decision, which involved Carrie Buck, an inmate at a Virginia mental institution. Buck was described in the Supreme Court’s ruling as “a feeble minded white woman . . . the daughter of a feeble minded mother . . . and the mother of an illegitimate feeble minded child.” That description came to mind as I read about Reva McCullough, a 25-year-old mother of three who was working as a nude dancer at a strip club in a suburb of Youngstown, Ohio, when she was interviewed by Martin Gould of the Daily Mail.

McCullough’s torso features tattoos of a fish and a cowboy boot, Gould reported, and she was wearing high-heel shoes and a G-string when he talked to her at Tiffany’s Dolls in North Lima, Ohio, where she was performing Tuesday under the stage name “Mercedes.” McCullough “admitted she had abused crack cocaine and marijuana for years,” Gould reported, although she said she stopped using drugs and “appeared bright, intelligent and sober.” McCullough told Gould: “I’ve made a lot of bad decisions in my life . . . I just went wild when I was 18.”

Reva McCullough and Devon Pasek.

McCullough has three sons by two different men. The father of two of her boys is Devon Pasek, 25. Earlier this year, Columbiana County Judge Thomas Baronzzi ordered that Pasek should be kept away from his son “due to his ongoing involvement with drug abuse or drug sales.”

Judge Baronzzi made that statement in an order that awarded custody of McCullough’s 4-year-old son to Radek’s mother, Rhonda.

Rhonda Pasek, 50, was passed out on heroin with her grandson in the backseat.

A police department in Ohio has shared on Facebook disturbing photos of a man and woman passed out in a car with a toddler in the backseat after the pair had allegedly overdosed on heroin.
The unsettling images appeared on the City of East Liverpool’s social media page [Sept. 8].
Officials say they decided to make the photos public to raise awareness of the heroin epidemic in the state, and also to try and deter people from using drugs while having children in their care.
Addiction to opioids such as heroin, morphine, fentanyl and codeine in the US has reached the proportions of a full-scale epidemic in recent years.
In Ohio, which has been among the states hardest hit by the opioid scourge, there were 3,000 unintentional drug overdoses last year, at an average of eight per day. . . .
An East Liverpool police officer was driving along St Clair Avenue at around 3.11pm Thursday when he spotted a dark Ford Explorer with West Virginia plates that was driving erratically before screeching to a stop near a school bus that was dropping off children, according to an arrest report that was also shared on Facebook.
When the officer approached the vehicle, he noticed that the driver, identified as 47-year-old James Acord, appeared intoxicated, with his head bobbing back and forth and his speech almost unintelligible.
Acord told the officer that he was driving 50-year-old Rhonda Pasek to a hospital. The woman was slumped over in the front passenger seat.
According to police, Acord then made an attempt to drive away, but at that moment the officer reached into the car and pulled the keys out of the ignition.
That is when the officer noticed Pasek’s 4-year-old in the backseat.
Paramedics who were summoned to the scene administered Narcan — a drug used to counteract the effects of a heroin overdose — to Pasek and Acord, who by that point had passed out as well. The couple were then taken to East Liverpool City Hospital to be evaluated.

Do you see why Justice Holmes and Buck v. Bell came to mind when I read the Daily Mail story about Reva McCullough, whose son ended up in the back of the van with two heroin addicts passed in the front seat?

Mama is a stripper, who reportedly lost custody of her son because of her crack cocaine problem. The boy’s Daddy is reportedly a drug dealer, so the judge awards custody of the boy to the Daddy’s mother who — surprise! surprise! — turns out to be a heroin addict, and also reportedly has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and has a history of alcohol abuse. Rhonda Pasek was sentenced yesterday to six months in jail.

When the reporter from the Daily Mail interviewed Reva McCullough at the strip club near Youngstown this week, he told her that her 4-year-old son had been sent by a judge to live with her aunt and uncle in South Carolina. “I didn’t even know that,” the stripper mom replied.

Hearing pundits and politicians talk about a “drug epidemic” or the breakdown of “family values” doesn’t seem to do much to persuade people to avoid associating with evildoers and their wicked deeds. It is only when you focus on individual cases — the sordid details of life and death in a decadent society — that the pattern becomes evident:

You see that, as a society descends into immorality and violence, contempt for the law becomes more and more widespread. Criminal behavior become more acceptable as young people grow up surrounded by wickedness. Advocates of “social justice” tell us we should not condemn even obvious evils like strip clubs, drug dealers and cop killers.

These are all helpless victims of society, we are told, and it would be “judgmental” to suggest that tattoo-covered dopeheads are bad people. We therefore become more tolerant of bad people, which leads to more bad behavior, and yet we react with shock when the headlines bring us news of the predictable results: “Oh, look, it’s grandma and her boyfriend overdosed on heroin, with a 4-year-old in the backseat.”

The “degenerate offspring” are “manifestly unfit,” etc.
