More than 2,200 images of Child Pornography found on iPods and thumb drive, some of it showing babies.
A registered sex offender from Arlington TX was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison Tuesday for possessing hundreds of images of child pornography, some of which showed babies.
Steven Lass, 33, pleaded guilty in April to one count of possession of child pornography, according to a release from the U.S. attorney’s office.
In August 2014, Lass was pulled over by a Midlothian police officer who noticed that the passenger seat of Lass’ vehicle was missing. In its place were tools and electronic devices, including two iPods and a thumb drive later found to contain more than 2,200 images of child porn.
The evidence was seized by the FBI, whose investigation revealed “the lewd and lascivious exhibition of the genitals and public are of minors,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Camille Sparks said in a written release.
Lass was required to register as a sex offender after a 2005 arrest in Euless. He was convicted of indecency with a child, an 8-year-old girl, sentenced to nine years and later paroled.
Roanoke Memorial staff said the child had retinal hemorrhaging, which is commonly associated with “Shaken Baby Syndrome”
SALEM, VA – Newly released search warrants detail moments leading up to the death of a 3-month-old child in Salem.
Salem police have charged the father, Jwawn Lamont James Sr., 41, with abuse and neglect of a child, and aggravated malicious wounding.
According to court documents, on Wednesday, Nov. 18 Salem Fire & Rescue along with officers from the Salem Police Department responded to 1016 Homestead Dr. in Salem in reference to an unresponsive child.
Upon arrival, police interviewed the child’s father, James, to determine the circumstances that led to the child’s state.
James advised to police as he was carrying his daughter into the home he tripped at the front door and dropped the car seat/carrier.
James indicated she was not strapped in, which caused his daughter to fall out of the car seat/carrier and on to her face and head.
James said he then picked up the child, checked to make sure she was OK, and placed her into the bassinet while he took a shower. James told police that after getting out of the shower, he found his daughter unresponsive and called 911. James said he proceeded to shake his daughter due to her being unresponsive.
The 3-month-old was transported to Roanoke Memorial for treatment.
At the hospital, detectives spoke with hospital staff regarding the child’s condition. Roanoke Memorial staff said the child had retinal hemorrhaging, which is commonly associated with “Shaken Baby Syndrome”, a collapsed lung, and head trauma.
Roanoke Memorial Hospital staff advised the child’s injuries were not consistent with the manner in which James provided that they occurred, and more likely the result of child abuse.
As a result, detectives requested to search James’ residence for any evidence related to abuse.
Things searched for:
Any and all seats, swings, and/or bassinets that the child may have been placed-in to include the padding and bedding commonly associated with these items
Any and all documents related to the care of the child such as hospital and/or doctor records
Any and all throw-rugs and/or mats located in the entry way of the residence
Any and all medications appropriate to be administered to a 3 month old child
Any and all pacifiers and/or other soothing devices
Any and all devices such as bottles or spoons used to feed a 3 month old child
Resident searched: 1016 Homestead Drive in Salem – single story ranch style home
Also, detectives have seized three cell phones – a Samsung Galaxy, Kyocera, and Motorola Droid – for the search and forensic analysis of the electronic devices and storage media for digital/text pictures, call logs, SMS messages, contact and videos.
I had been hearing Psychologists and Psychiatrists were going to do the same as was done in the 1970’s, which was, in effect, manipulate data and studies to achieve another perversion of the morals of America.
On November 07, 2015, I found the first article of what will be many more to come.
The next day, I posted an Editorial before posting this first attempt at the further perverting of Our Country. In this Editorial I warned everyone of the tricks and out-and-out lies that will be used to sugar-coat the truth of what will steal the innocence of Our Children, and ultimately, their futures.
In one sentence this Psychologist callas this a sexual orientation, yet in the very next paragraph, she calls it sexual urges, which is the same as a fantasy.
This is not a fantasy to Our Children, nor is it make believe, THIS IS AN ADULT RAPING A CHILD!!!!
After all of this, I find that “SubWay Jared” is saying that it wasn’t his fault that he had sex with Children.
In this broken, perverse society in which we live, there is a serious lack of RESPONSIBILITY FOR A PERSON’S OWN ACTIONS, A SERIOUS LACK OF RESPECT FOR THE LAWS OF OUR LAND, AND A SERIOUS LACK OF RESPECT FOR OFFICERS OF THE LAW.
A sex offender will molest an average of 120 victims.
There are 3,000,000 reports of Child Maltreatment every year, yet far less than 25% of the incidents are ever reported. This translates to over 12,000,000 incidents of Child Maltreatment per year.
This year alone, 10,000,000 Children, ages 13 and up, will contract at least one or more STI or STD.
I have yet to locate a compiled list for the number of Children, ages Birth to 12, that will contract an STI or STD.
This year alone there will be at least 2,000,000 runaways.
At least 1 in 6 runaways will fall into Child Sex Traffickers hands.
This translates into 333,340 Children that will fall into Child Sex Traffickers hands, AND BE RAPED.
The average victims age is 11 to 14.
The average life span of a victim is 3 to 7 years.
So I want you to think about how many of these Children are being protected by a Psychologist, and I believe you are like me in one respect, and that is I DO NOT WANT ANY CHILD PREDATORS OR SEX OFFENDERS NEAR A CHILD.
Lack of Responsibility for one’s own actions, and Lack of Respect for Laws and Law Enforcement by a large percentage of adults is having a very negative impact on teenagers, and is already taking a heavy toll.
Although what should be apparent, and a MAJOR WAKEUP CALL to all is THE NEW CLOCK ON THE WALL.
The Clock that keeps track of the exponentially spreading HIV, AIDS, STDs, STIs, AND EBOLA; but there is one difference in that clock, it’s not COUNTING TIME, IT IS SUBTRACTING TIME…. until every disease unique to humans becomes extinct.
Thirty-five states saw youth drug overdose deaths increase dramatically in the past decade, according to a new report. And in five states – Kansas, Montana, Ohio, Wisconsin and Wyoming – the overdose death rates more than quadrupled.
Drug overdoses were the leading cause of injury death in 2013, exceeding that of motor vehicle crashes, says the report released Thursday from Trust for America’s Health, a national non-profit group that watchdogs public health issues.
Reducing Teen Substance Misuse: What Really Works ranks states on their actions to curb teen substance abuse — from alcohol to opioids — among 12 to 25-year-olds in the U.S from 1999 to 2013.
Of the 35 states that have seen an increase in youth overdose deaths from 1999 to 2011, rates more than tripled in 12 states (Arkansas, Delaware, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, Oklahoma, Utah and West Virginia).
While Kansas, Montana, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Wyoming saw the biggest increase in youth overdoses in the same period, those states do not currently have the highest rates in the country. Current rates are highest in West Virginia, where 12.6 per 100,000 youths overdosed from 2011 to 2013 — compared with North Dakota, where only 2.2 per 100,000 youths overdosed in the same time period, according to the report.
“More than 90 percent of adults who develop a substance use disorder began using before they were 18,” Jeffrey Levi, executive director of Trust for America’s Health, said in a press release.
The amount of prescription painkillers prescribed and sold in the U.S. has nearly quadrupled since 1999, and prescription drug overdoses accounted for more than half of the all drug overdoses in 2013. Nationally, males are 2.5 times more likely to overdose as females, according to the report.
“The increase in youth drug overdose deaths is largely tied to increases in prescription drug misuse and the related doubling in heroin use by 18 to 25-year-olds in the past 10 years – 45 percent of people who use heroin are also addicted to prescription painkillers,” the report said.
The report highlights 10 indicators of policy strategies that could help curb substance abuse in the younger population. These include limiting access to the drugs, increased funding for treatment facilities and improving counseling, early intervention strategies and recovery support.
“Achieving any major reduction in substance misuse will require a reboot in our approach – starting with a greater emphasis on preventing use before it starts, intervening and providing support earlier and viewing treatment and recovery as a long-term commitment,” Levi said
Hacker collective Anonymous has declared “war is unleashed” against ISIS, the Islamic militant group that claimed responsibility for the deadly attacks that occurred Friday in Paris.
ISIS has used the Internet to recruit new members from around the world and to spread chilling images of executions and other violence.
Anonymous, a loosely affiliated group of Internet users who hack and spread leaked information, said in a series of tweets and a YouTube video that it wants to steal information from that Web traffic and force ISIS into Internet obscurity. Indeed, its #OpParis campaign aims to strip ISIS of one of its most valuable tools: the Internet.
In the YouTube video published Sunday, a masked announcer speaks in French. The statement was widely translated as saying, “Expect massive cyber attacks. War is declared. Get prepared.”
Anonymous has leveled its ire at a huge variety of individuals, groups and companies that it perceives as crossing ethical and moral lines. Their attacks involve leaking documents and taking down websites with a form of attack called distributed denial of service, which overwhelms websites with too many requests. The group’s targets have included the Ku Klux Klan, the Westboro Baptist Church (known for protesting the funerals of fallen soldiers and others in the United States), Monsanto and Koch Industries.
The list of Anonymous‘ targets also includes governments, such as Tunisia in 2011, in response to reports of censorship during the Arab Spring uprisings.
But ISIS, or the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, which has been a warring force in the Middle East, just struck at the heart of the Western World.
Anonymous‘ announcement isn’t brand new. It began targeting ISIS earlier, especially after gunmen opened fire at the offices of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in January, killing 12.
#OpParis is aimed at ISIS’ use of social media and other Web services. Beheadings and other executions of journalists, members of different Islamic groups and people accused of being gay have circulated on the Web over the past two years. Also, recruitment websites have urged people from around the world to leave their homes and fight with ISIS.
This activity has already gotten the attention of Western governments. For example, law enforcement and intelligence officers monitor recruitment websites. Anonymous seems fixed on amplifying these efforts with its brand of crowdsourced hacking, nevermind the law.
On Monday, a Twitter handle calling itself the official #OpParis account claimed a number of “pro-ISIS” accounts had been taken down.
More that 3824 Twitter accounts pro #ISIS are now #down! #ExpectUs#OpParis#Anonymous

Anonymous, however, isn’t a unified group, and dissenters were tweeting their disapproval on Monday. One Anonymous-affiliated Twitter user, who goes by the handle Discordian and claims to have participated in several Anonymous hacking efforts, said he opposes #OpParis for a variety of reasons.
“How exactly do they plan to stop an international terrorist organization that has been able to plot attacks regardless of the mass-spying by governments around the globe?” Discordian wrote on a text-hosting website called Pastebin.
Predictions from those in the cybersecurity industry of whether Anonymous will be successful are mixed, with experts saying they understand why Anonymous wants to target ISIS.
Stu Sjouwerman, founder and CEO of cybersecurity company KnowBe4, is optimistic that Anonymous will be successful. “I wish Anonymous good luck with this campaign,” he said.
