Spokane Valley man faces Child Abuse charges; Child reportedly records
violent attack

SPOKANE, WA  –  A Spokane Valley man is facing serious charges of child abuse after police say his daughter recorded him attacking her at home — an attack that was reportedly so violent, the man broke his hand from hitting her so hard.

The video came to light after Brian Loss was arrested on June 20 for 3rd degree assault-domestic violence against his 16-year-old daughter.

Court documents say Loss went to pick up his daughter in Spokane County to give her a ride.  She told police she jumped on the hood of his vehicle to avoid being left behind and he reportedly drove off with her on the hood, swerving in an attempt to knock her off.  The child did eventually fall off the hood, according to police.

Loss appeared in court at the end of June and was then released on his own recognizance, but a domestic violence no contact order was issued.

During the investigation, police say they obtained a video of a December 5, 2017, assault by Loss at his residence.  It was during that assault that police say Loss broke his hand during the beating.  He and his daughter later went to an urgent care to have a cast put on it.

Documents also say that Loss violated the domestic violence no contact order on July 1.  He was arrested and appeared in court on Tuesday.

Loss is charged with third degree assault and witness tampering, third degree child rape, third degree child molestation and harassment.

He will be in court again on July 17.

Justice Served To Purveyors Of Child Porn In NY

Carthage Woman Sentenced to 90 Years for Child Pornography Production

Tammy Martin and Co-defendant Clif Seaway Filmed the Abuse of Three Child Victims

SYRACUSE, NY  –  Tammy M. Martin, age 48, of Carthage, New York, was sentenced today to serve 90 years in prison for her conviction on three counts of sexual exploitation of a child, announced United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith and Kevin M. Kelly, Special Agent in Charge of the Buffalo Field Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

The sentencing today follows Martin’s earlier plea of guilty during which she admitted that on at least 4 separate occasions in 2002, she and co-defendant Clif Seaway engaged the first of the 3 victims in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing visual depictions.  This criminal conduct resulted in the production of at least 30 separate files depicting the child engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Martin further admitted to the abuse of a second victim on at least 14 separate occasions from 2001 through 2007, producing at least 104 separate files depicting that abuse.

Finally, Martin admitted that on at least 26 occasions from 2004 through 2008, she and Seaway engaged the third of their victims in sexually explicit conduct, producing at least 211 separate files of that abuse.

Martin was sentenced to serve the maximum sentence allowable under federal law, consisting of 30 years of imprisonment on each count of conviction to be served consecutively to one another.  If Martin is ever released from prison, she is sentenced to a term of supervised release for life, and required to register as a sex offender.

“Over a seven year period, Tammy Martin and Clif Seaway sexually exploited three children, and the 90-year sentence imposed reflects the depravity and gravity of those crimes,” said United States Attorney Grant C. Jaquith.  “Our commitment to prosecutions to protect children and secure just punishment for their predators is unwavering, and we continue to seek sentences which ensure that those predators will never harm another child.”

“Today’s sentence clearly demonstrates the serious nature with which the law enforcement community views crimes committed against children,” said Kevin Kelly, Special Agent in charge of HSI Buffalo.  “HSI and our partners will continue to be relentless in the aggressive pursuit of these cases, and the significant prison term handed down is an appropriate one and should serve as a stark warning about the consequences awaiting those involved in these acts.”

For his part in the abuse of these and other children, Clif Seaway was sentenced on May 3, 2018 to serve 360 years in prison.

Martin’s case was investigated by the New York State Police, and the United States Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Lisa Fletcher, Project Safe Childhood Coordinator for the Northern District of New York, and Carina Schoenberger.

Launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice, Project Safe Childhood is led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS).  Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.

Child Porn sting

TAMPA, FL  –  Florida detectives arrested 10 men, one a project manager at Walt Disney World, and a 16-year-old boy as part of an undercover child pornography investigation.

The suspects face at least 660 felony charges, according to the sheriff’s office.
“Most of the images we saw during this investigation depicted children being sexually battered, that we have seen before — which means we haven’t yet identified any local child victims, but as always, that is also a part of our investigation,” Sheriff Grady Judd said in a news release.

First, The BS From NY

Did the Trump Administration Separate
Immigrant Children From Parents and
Lose Them?

President Trump over the weekend falsely blamed Democrats for a “horrible law” separating immigrant children from their parents.  In fact, his own administration had just announced this policy earlier this month.

His comments followed days of growing alarm that federal authorities have lost track of more than 1,000 immigrant children, mostly from Central America, giving rise to hashtags like #WhereAreTheChildren and claims that children are being ripped from their parents’ arms at the border and then being lost.

But the president is not the only one spreading wrong information.  Across social media, there have been confusing reports of what happened to these immigrant children.  Here are some answers.

Did the Trump administration separate nearly 1,500 immigrant children from their parents at the border, and then lose track of them?

No. The government did realize last year that it lost track of 1,475 migrant children it had placed with sponsors in the United States, according to testimony before a Senate subcommittee last month.  But those children had arrived alone at the Southwest border — without their parents.  Most of them are from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, and were fleeing drug cartels, gang violence and domestic abuse, according to government data.

Officials at the Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees refugee resettlement, began making calls last year to determine what had happened to 7,635 children the government had helped place between last October and the end of the year.

From these calls, officials learned that 6,075 children remained with their sponsors. Twenty-eight had run away, five had been removed from the United States and 52 had relocated to live with a nonsponsor.  The rest were unaccounted for, giving rise to the 1,475 number.  It is possible that some of the adult sponsors simply chose not to respond to the agency.

Losing track of children who arrive at the border alone is not a new phenomenon.  A 2016 inspector general report showed that the federal government was able to reach only 84 percent of children it had placed, leaving 4,159 unaccounted for.

This is a prime example of fake news, with the exception to the fact that it is just plain BS, that attempts to cover-up the loss of 90,000+ immigrant Children lost by the Obama Administration and a very corrupt CPS(HHS).

CPS Still Pimping Children To Sex Traffickers

WHERE ARE THE 90,000+ LATINO CHILDREN CPS

On Monday evening, Eric Hargan, the deputy secretary for Health and Human Services, expressed frustration at the use of the term “lost” to refer to the 1,475 unaccounted-for children.  In a statement, he said that the department’s office of refugee resettlement began voluntarily making the calls as a 30-day follow-up to make sure that the children and their sponsors did not require additional services. Those calls, which the office does not view as required,  Mr. Hargan said, are now “being used to confuse and spread misinformation.”

In many cases, the statement said, sponsors cannot be reached because “they themselves are illegal aliens and do not want to be reached by federal authorities.”

Finally Protesting The Real Problem

Group protests Bullying in schools

Christian County, KY  –  One teenager wished Wednesday morning in front of the Christian County Board of Education that more people would stop ignoring bullying.

“I wish people would see it and understand that words hurt people,” Salethia Byrd said during a bullying protest.

Salethia shared with the group that came to protest bullying that she started getting seriously bullied in the sixth grade.  A new girl came to the school, and Salethia said she tried to befriend the new girl.  However, that student began to hang out with people that didn’t like Salethia, which she didn’t know why.  The student began to talk about Salethia, but Salethia cut her off.

A short time later, the student apologized and asked to be friends again.  But the student started talking about her again.  Salethia shut her down again.

“To this day, she is still bullying me,” she said.

She wants people to know how much bullying can impact self-esteem.

Salethia explained she reported the student to the principal, but all the student got was a write-up.

“And that’s not going to stop anybody,” she said, adding she wished consequences were more severe for those bullying.

Her best friend, Anijah Watkins, said she was picked on because she was the odd one.  She didn’t know what it was exactly, whether it was the music she listened to or something else. But it got better for her with time.  Anijah said she just dealt with it and never told anyone.

Bullying protest organizer Adia Snorton Johnson said the protest was sparked by a video of students fighting that recently came out.  After the video was seen, people were calling her to tell her that their child was being bullied.

Hopkinsville Mayor Carter Hendricks also stopped by to present a proclamation declaring Wednesday an anti-bullying day.  He also shared a few stories of how he was bullied when he was a child.

Johnson said they had to do something about this.  So, she organized the protest.  But this won’t be the last of it.  Johnson said this will be a continuous effort.  For those who want to join, stop by the Legacy Learning center at 403 Moores Drive, call the center at 270-962-7229 or email Johnson at asnorton2011@gmail.com to find out how to get involved.

Johnson said they will meet throughout the summer and suggested children get involved in the Boys and Girls Club of Hopkinsville-Christian County’s summer camp.  It is $30 per teen.  If the family can’t afford to send the teen, Johnson said she’s willing to sponsor a few.

And if there are any children being bullied or doing the bullying, they have to be pointed in the right direction.
