Women charged with felony child abuse
in separate cases
PORT ORCHARD, WA – In unrelated incidents, two women were charged Tuesday in Kitsap Superior Court with felony child abuse.
One was charged for leaving a 1-year-old girl in a hot car while attempting to shoplift at the Silverdale Target and another for beating her 6-year-old son with a belt after he got into a fight at school.
Sheriff’s deputies were called Sept. 4 by employees of a private school in East Bremerton reporting that a student had asked to stand instead of sit, as it hurt him to sit because of “significant welts and marks” on his backside after his mother disciplined him, according to court documents.
Deputies spoke with his mother, 30, who said the boy had been assaulting other children and she wanted to stop this behavior. She gave deputies a synthetic leather belt with metal features.
The woman pleaded not guilty to a count of third-degree assault of a child.
The boy and a sibling were placed in protective custody.
Deputies were called Sunday to the Silverdale Target after security guards there said a woman, 24, they knew to repeatedly shoplift from other Target stores had selected some bottles of alcohol. She was then joined by a man, 56, who is believed to have gone into the store to warn her security was present, according to court documents.
The woman left behind the items but when the two went back to the car, deputies met them and attempted to serve them with a notice that they had been banned from returning to any Target.
While at the car, deputies noticed 1-year-old girl in the back seat who appeared to be sweating. A deputy wrote in documents that it was 75 degrees out and the temperature inside the car was likely much higher. Medics were called and said the girl was lethargic and needed to be taken to the hospital for an evaluation.
Deputies were told by a security guard that, according to surveillance camera footage taken inside the store, the two adults left the baby in the car unattended for about 23 minutes. The girl was turned over to Child Protective Services after she was released from the hospital.
Both the man and woman were arrested and booked into the Kitsap County Jail. They pleaded not guilty to second-degree criminal mistreatment and reckless endangerment.
One Million Moms has worked on numerous campaigns to voice our concern over the liberal agenda being pushed on our children through PBS and using our tax dollars to do so.
1MM has worked tirelessly to make others aware by warning, informing, and equipping conservative families and reminding them of who exactly is footing the bill to have our faith insulted and scoff at God.
Recently, 1MM took action regarding PBS launching Prideland the six-episode series of short videos on a dedicated YouTube Channel created by its Digital Studios to celebrate Gay Pride Month.
1MM also completely disapproves of our tax dollars being used particularly to push the LGBT agenda on PBS KIDS. 1MM has launched several petitions to speak out on this issue.
The network attempts to indoctrinate children through shows such as Arthur, Clifford the Big Red Dog, and Sesame Street which deliberately desensitize young children to the LGBT lifestyle. 1MM work has been noticed by conservative families and other organizations.
Our friends at Liberty Counsel Action proudly fought against additional funding for PBS during the COVID-19 bailout because of the organization’s efforts to push radical LGBT beliefs and actions onto preschool children. They reached out to some of the highest levels of leadership in Congress and successfully advocated that PBS Kids’ own actions have moved it from a non-controversial, government funded information organization, to one that is pushing LGBT behavior onto preschool aged children. The funding for PBS was reduced from the $300 million dollar grant included in the bill passed by the U.S. House, to $75 million dollars during negotiations in the U.S. Senate.
PBS Kids is taking a complex, emotional issue even for adults and forcing their own viewpoint onto our children. What’s more, PBS is using our tax dollars to push this agenda. If PBS continues to push its radical agenda onto preschool children, they no longer deserve any federal funding of our tax dollars. PBS has a choice to make.
1MM will continue to let our voice be heard.
1MM has partnered with Liberty Counsel Action on this campaign since there is strength in numbers, and we have a similar goal to protect conservative American families. Below is the letter that was sent to the Board Members of PBS.
Open Letter to the Board Members of PBS:
I want to thank you for your service on the board of PBS.
It is in regard to your work there that I want to bring a sensitive topic to your attention. I’m sure you are aware that the first COVID-19 bill (HR 748) had grants to PBS that were reduced from $300 million to $75 million. It might surprise you that Liberty Counsel Action worked toward this reduction on Capitol Hill. Allow me to explain why.
PBS Kids chose one side of a complex and controversial political issue and then pushed their viewpoint onto preschool children. Specifically, when you used Arthur, Clifford, and Billy Porter on Sesame Street to push LGBT behaviors onto preschool children, this breached a trust with every conservative mom in America.
Those decisions moved PBS from a relatively uncontroversial organization to one that is the focus and frustration of conservative moms across America. Many mothers have banned PBS Kids from their home. Others have banned all but a few shows in their house. At this point, PBS Kids has become a flashpoint that is considered when your organization asks for additional funding. It leaves the taint of a one-sided organization with a liberal agenda.
We understand that leaders in the media lean disproportionately to the left. This lack of balance and diversity of perspective can unfortunately lead organizations like yours to make choices that offend large numbers of the Americans you are trying to serve. At this point, I believe it is necessary to restore your image to a neutral organization and back away from complicated and controversial programming for kids.
Liberty Counsel Action and PBS Kids share some of the same goals. We want to see you on a path to regain the trust of these conservative moms. In addition, we want to see PBS Kids restored to a place where funding for PBS Kids is not a controversial issue that hurts your future funding.
If you’d like to work with us, Liberty Counsel Action stands ready to help you in this area. We request and look forward to your response.

This is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and I had neglected to put it on my calendar. Being in quarantine was no excuse, I should have plenty of time, however, here I was a week late and counting…
This won’t take long at all, just let the search engines do the work. Hummmm, that’s odd.. I need to slow down, OK, now it’s spelled right… what now, a dropped connection?
My search results were being filtered!
Finally I looked, and there was the article I was looking for from Washington DC. No, it’s dated 2019, and so it went for 2 more attempts, until it broke free from the fake and filtered news, and was displayed before me. But no graphic.
Now this should be easy, a picture of our President should be child’s play. If one of my children or grandchildren had been there, the HUFFPOST would never have forgotten the email they would have received. The dirty, vile, evil things I saw posted about our President, The President of these United States of America, and it made my blood boil.
These people are as ignorant and stupid as the idiots over at The Atlantic, and I just thought we had some real biased duds down here in Dallas at The Morning News.
SO, this explains at least a part of what is wrong with all these blind Lemmings around us, they are running for the sea so fast that their heads are stuck where the sun don’t shine in the Lemming ahead of them.
At this time I want to present this award to The HuffPost, The Atlantic, all the other biased, ignorant Lemming Media, The Dallas Morning News, and all you Socialist loving Lemmings out there.
Just so you all know, I was going to name this post “The Emporer’s New Clothes Part 2” but if I were to rename it, the name would be “The Anti-American Lemming Leader’s Legacy”.
You all have been in the middle of a STD/STI Pandemic that has been out of control for quiet a few years.
Adolescents are disproportionately affected by STIs and STDs. Young people ages 15 to 24 represent 25 percent of the sexually active population, but acquire half of all new STIs and STDs.
This year alone, 10,000,000 young people, 13 years-of-age to 23, will contract one (1) or more STI or STD.
35 percent of teens ages 14 to 19 have Human papillomavirus (HPV).
Girls age 15 to 19 have the highest rates of Gonorrhea and the second highest rate of Chlamydia of any age group.
This is the Senate Homeland and Governmental Affairs investigations subcommittee, on January 28, 2016, questioning HHS/CPS after their 6 months investigation. The link everyone was given stated “The congressional hearing cited the AP report that found more than two dozen unaccompanied children were sent to homes across the country where they were sexually assaulted…”
The problem was that the link was filtered, so the American People would NOT find out the truth. Not one site found out the TRUTH until Google did their job as every one should have done from the start. Google informed us that the link we all used was now a DEAD LINK.
By this time, the 2 genuine links was wide open, as you will see for yourself, as my site’s update post is not included, so everyone of WE THE PEOPLE can see the Washington Times link, which was used to update my post, and everyone else that chose to update the fake article with the genuine one with the correct numbers.
So, in effect, the lies we were fed about two (2) dozen immigrant children being turned over to traffickers, IN TRUTH turned out to be 90,000 immigrant children was turned over to traffickers, and even though nameless people have stated that every child was found and returned to their families, TO DATE, NOT 1 CHILD’S NAME HAS EVER BEEN SHOWN AS EVIDENCE TO SUBSTANTIATE THIS LIE, EVIDENCE BEING IN THE FORM OF A VERIFIABLE ICE OR BORDER PATROL LIST OF IMMIGRANTS FROM THIS DATE.
This is the article so you can see it in print yourselves:
January 28, 2016
The Obama administration sent illegal immigrant children into “modern-day slavery” by turning them over to sponsors who forced them into child labor or subjected them to sexual abuse, members of Congress said Thursday as they demanded that top child protection officials explain how it could have happened.
Worse yet, the administration acknowledged that it can’t account for each of the 90,000 children it processed and released since the surge peaked in 2014.
LUBBOCK, TX – Amid new concerns about child abuse, the Go Blue Lubbock campaign, held every April as a part of National Child Abuse Prevention Month, stresses the importance of protecting children and preventing child abuse on the South Plains.
With added pressures brought on by health concerns, job insecurity, financial strain, and other effects of the coronavirus crisis, children are at greater risk as parents and caregivers struggle to cope.
In 2019, there were 3,095 confirmed cases of child abuse in the Lubbock Region.
Fifteen children lost their lives in abuse or neglect related fatalities in this area.
The Lubbock area continues to have one of the highest rates of confirmed abuse or neglect in the state with an average of three confirmed cases in Lubbock County every day.
The public is invited to participate in the campaign by wearing blue on Go Blue Fridays throughout the month of April and sharing and tagging with the hashtag #GoBlueLubbock.
Cecil County man charged with Child Abuse; accused of shaking baby
April 02, 2020
CECIL COUNTY, MD – A man is facing felony child abuse charges after he allegedly shook a 5-month-old baby in his Cecil County household, causing significant injury to the infant’s brain, according to charging documents.
Investigators identified the suspect as 57-year-old Paul Frederick Herd Sr., who remained in the Cecil County Detention Center without bond on Thursday, two days after his bail review hearing, court records show.
Herd is charged with first-degree child abuse resulting in severe physical injury, first-degree assault and second-degree custodial child abuse – all of which are felonies – in addition to three misdemeanor offenses, according to Cecil County District Court records.
“At this time, it is impossible to know what long term effects will be; however, portions of the brain were deprived oxygen due to the hemorrhaging,” Cecil County Sheriff’s Office Det. Chase Arminger, lead investigator, outlines in his written statement of probable cause filed on Tuesday.
The investigation started on March 19, when Arminger responded to Nemours A.I. DuPont Children’s Hospital in Wilmington, Del., after physicians there alerted that they were treating a 5-month-old baby for “injuries consistent with physical abuse,” police said.
Doctors reported that the infant was “actively seizing with no medical explanation,” that a CAT scan revealed the infant was suffering from “acute and chronic” bleeding inside the head; and that a retinal scan indicated “significant (bleeding) in both eyes,” police added.
“The ruptured blood vessels in the retinal area were too numerous to count. Medical professionals advised (that) the injuries present were inconsistent with the explanation given at the time the infant was presented to the medical staff. Det. Arminger was advised that the mechanism of injury was physical abuse consistent with shaking, unless or until, proven otherwise,” according to court records.
That prompted Arminger to conduct separate interviews with five other people who were living in the house with the baby – the infant’s mother, the mother’s boyfriend and the mothers’s two other children, who are elementary-school aged, police reported.
The mother told Arminger that the baby and her two other children had been left in the sole care of Herd on March 14 and again on March 17, police said. The mother also told the investigator that she noticed a change in the baby’s behavior on March 16, police added.
“The infant was refusing (its) bottle, sleeping off and on, and being abnormally fussy. Through March 16 through March 18, the infant’s condition continued to deteriorate, prompting the mother to schedule an appointment with a pediatrician,” court records show.
On the morning of March 19, however, the baby started seizing and, after consulting the pediatrician on the phone, the mother called 911 — resulting in an ambulance crew driving the infant to A.I. DuPont Children’s Hospital, police reported.
The mother’s boyfriend, during his separate interview, gave a similar account of when Herd was alone with the baby and the other two children in the house, police said. He, too, also told Arminger that the baby had been moody and had a diminished appetite, police added.
In addition, according to court records, the mother’s boyfriend reported that he noticed a small bruise on the baby’s face on the night of March 17 and that he was unsure of the cause.
The mother’s boyfriend also noted Herd had told him that, on March 14, one of the elementary-aged children had tripped over the baby while the infant was on the floor — an incident that occurred while all three children were in Herd’s sole care, court records show.
During their separate interviews, the elementary-aged children gave similar accounts of Herd’s alleged reaction after the tripping incident took place, police said.
The older of the two children described Herd as “mad” at the sibling who had tripped over the baby, police added.
That older child told Arminger that Herd then picked up the infant and “shook her up and down saying, ‘It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay’,” court records allege.
The younger of the two elementary-aged children told the investigator that Herd picked up the baby and “moved (the infant) up and down” while saying, “It’s okay, it’s okay.”
During his interview, Herd told investigators that the tripping incident occurred on March 17, not March 14, and that the baby was not injured and was “doing fine” and “taking bottles normally,” police reported.
When asked about the events of the March 13-15 weekend, according to court records, investigators noticed a “significant behavior change” in Herd. Investigators observed Herd “look away and appear withdrawn while giving answers to specific questions,” police reported.
Herd denied watching the baby and the two older children over the March 13-15 weekend, until detectives shared details given during other interviews, police said. At that point, police added, Herd “admitted to watching the children, but only for 30 minutes.”
When asked to detail what occurred right before and directly after the baby’s mother called 911 on morning of March 19, Herd told investigators that the infant was “barely conscious,” and that he attempted to help the baby while waiting for the ambulance, police reported.
“I (Herd) kept holding (the baby’s hands) and keeping (the baby) alert, because I know when you have a concussion, you don’t go to sleep,” according to court records, which further allege, “(Herd) would have had no knowledge the infant had a head injury at the time 911 was contacted unless there was prior knowledge of the mechanism of injury.”
Arminger arrested Herd on Tuesday, court records show.
