Genie

Starved, Tortured, Forgotten

This is the story of a young girl who spent her childhood locked in a bedroom

There have been a number of cases of feral children raised in social isolation with little or no human contact. Few have captured public and scientific attention like that of a young girl called Genie. She spent almost her entire childhood locked in a bedroom, isolated, and abused for over a decade. Genie’s case was one of the first to put the critical period theory to the test. Could a child reared in utter deprivation and isolation develop language?

Raised in isolation, “Genie” was a wild child, uncivilised, barely able to walk or talk. The girl reportedly was still wearing diapers when a social worker discovered her. Genie had a strange bunny walk and other almost inhuman characteristics. Genie constantly spat. She sniffed and clawed. She barely spoke or made any noises. The indications are that she was beaten for making noise and consequently, had learned, basically, not to vocalise. And she really didn’t vocalise very much at all. When first met, she was silent most of the time. One of Genie’s most captivating qualities was the intense way she explored her new environment. Oddly, even strangers who knew nothing about her story seemed to sense her need to do so.

SOCK defacto father of Ihaka Stokes admits to dropping baby

Murder accused Troy Taylor today admitted dropping baby Ihaka Stokes the night before he’s alleged to have killed him.

Taylor, 23, denies murdering 14-month-old Ihaka at a Christchurch house on July 3, 2015.

The de-facto stepfather claims that Mikala Stokes, his former partner and Ihaka’s mother, inflicted the boy’s fatal injuries while he wasn’t home.

 

What are the odds that you can drop a baby on its face and then the mother murders it a little later when you’re not even home? ? Read more »

What is good for the gander is good for the goose

In my analogy, the gander is gay man Milo Yiannopoulos who had his book Dangerous cancelled by his publisher and the goose is gay woman Lena Dunham who has cancelled her book tour. Over the years many allegations have been used to try to silence Milo such as white supremacist, white?nationalist, alt-right, anti-Semite, racist, islamophobic, homophobic and transphobic. The smear that cost him both his book deal and his job, however, was one of the worst smears that anyone can throw at a person which is to call them a ?paedophile.

Milo’s use of the word “boy” in a video was deliberately twisted to make it appear that he was referring to young boys when in fact he was referring to his own sexual relationship at 17 with an older man. In the unedited version of the video used to smear him, he actually stated that the age of consent was about right which clearly showed that he did not support underage sex or paedophilia.

Milo was molested by a paedophile when he was 13. In his career?as a journalist, he has been responsible for shining sunlight on three pedophiles?which as he pointed out at his media conference was three more than any of his accusers.

Nevertheless, the smear cost him his lucrative book deal and his job at Breitbart but his fans were not happy and immediately began to point out a number of famous people on the left who have said much worse and gotten away with it. One of those people was Bill Myer who in a video condoned sex between a 12 year old?student and a 33 year old teacher. He even mocked the female guest who called it rape.

Here’s another party the government could do without after the election

Between the grandstanding of Peter Dunne and the brown-mailing of the Maori party I think the government really needs to look a bit closer at other solutions for governing.

The Maori party has declared they will fight the government tooth and nail over legislation this year. With friends like them who needs enemies.

Maori Party co-leader Marama Fox is threatening to walk away from the Government over new legislation that doesn’t ensure Maori children are placed with whanau when the state removes them?from their home.

Prime Minister Bill English isn’t?budging?on the wording in legislation to overhaul Child, Youth and Family (CYF), which would remove the priority to place a child with a member of their family or wider hapu if possible or someone with the same cultural background.

“Just because we want to provide a safe and loving home doesn’t make it mutually exclusive to a Maori home,” Fox said.

“We’re not talking about putting a child back into an unsafe home – that’s stupid – but just because it’s a Maori home doesn’t make it an unsafe home and that’s where we want to make it explicit in the law.”

Fox said she’d “fight for this every day of the week”.

Socialist Cindy, the childless champion of children

It?s time the Government listened to the growing chorus of leading opinion calling for an apology and an independent inquiry into historical abuse claims of children in state care, says Labour?s Justice spokesperson Jacinda Ardern.

They yelled out “Allahu Akbar” but their crimes had nothing to do with a loving God

As they were jailed for eighty years for sexually abusing young girls including one who became pregnant at just 12, after being groomed with alcohol and drugs, members of a Muslim?child sex gang based in Rotherham shouted out “Allahu Akbar.” One of the most shocking things about their crimes is how long they were able to get away with them. Authorities were alerted to their activities in 1997 but appallingly these evil men were not brought to justice until twenty years later.

Look at the timeline. It reveals that the fear of all those involved that they might be seen as racist or Islamophobic allowed these disgusting predators to do whatever they liked to vulnerable young girls in Rotherham for two decades despite the authorities being alerted time and time again to their activities. It is a chilling reminder that political correctness is dangerous. It protects those who do evil because those who should be stopping evil?are more concerned with how things appear rather than how things actually are.

Stop blaming bullies, start blaming parents who make their kids fat

The wombles are concerned that fat kids are getting bullied at pre-school.

Instead of attacking the rampant child neglect issues around how a kid gets obese in pre-school in the first, they are instead focussing on the so-called bullies.

Pre-schoolers?are being bullied and suffering from sleep problems?and?joint pain?as a result of being?overweight, a child obesity expert warns.

Many parents are unaware their children are fat, making weight-loss an uphill battle, the expert says.

Nearly 10 per cent of four-year-olds?were found to be obese in routine before-school health checks over six months?this year, Ministry of Health data shows.

Instead of having a war with the government you’d think the teacher unions would solve their pedo problem [UPDATED]

The teacher unions are in a constant war with the?government, often accusing them of harming children.

Meanwhile, the march of registered teachers and presumably union members through the court for fiddling with kids continues unabated.

A former Canterbury principal has admitted 10 historic charges of indecent assault and sexual violation against a boy.

Michael William Hogan, 54, pleaded guilty to the offending, which happened between 1990 and 1995 when Hogan was teaching at small school in Southland.

The offending involved one victim, who was aged between 13 and 18 at the time, at two Southland schools.

Some of the charges were representative, indicating the offence took place at least once in a specified period.

Hogan was the principal at Prebbleton School, near Christchurch,?until the end of last year.

He was acting principal at another school?shortly before?he?first appeared in court on sex charges in May this year. ? Read more »

Nothing short of child abuse

Ranty Kiwi comments:

Can someone remind me again why we bother letting refugees into the country? Especially as we can’t even deport them when they go feral.

He’s talking about these scumbags:

Two parents who abused their teenage daughter by forcing her to take freezing baths, hitting her and cutting her hair because they thought she was a witch have been jailed.

The Congolese refugees were both found guilty by a jury in Auckland yesterday of several charges relating to almost four years of abuse.

After being convicted, the duo told court workers they were innocent because they were performing witchcraft on the then 15-year-old girl because they believed she was possessed.

The girl’s mother, now 33, arrived from the Democratic Republic of the Congo in central Africa in 2007 and put down roots in a North Island town. She met her husband, now 40, a few years later and in 2012 they moved to Auckland with the woman’s teenager daughter and the three children the couple had together.

At the Auckland District Court yesterday, the jury heard how the abuse began in 2010 and continued until June 2014.

Over this time, the man would hit his step-daughter until she got into a very cold bath and forced her to stay in it for long periods while her mother stood by. ? Read more »

The Girl In The Window. Policeman Mark Holste from Florida, USA will never forgot the call he received on July 13th, 2005. A man reported seeing a mysterious, pale little girl in the window of his neighbour's house.

The Girl In The Window. Policeman Mark Holste from Florida, USA will never forgot the call he received on July 13th, 2005. A man reported seeing a mysterious, pale little girl in the window of his neighbour’s house.

The Girl in the Window

A Man saw a Pale, Thin Face in the Window of His Neighbour?s House. The Police Find Something Tragic Inside.

In July 2005, a six-year-old girl named Danielle was removed from her Florida home after authorities found her living in bug-ridden squalor, subjected to horrific neglect and so damaged by her own mother that recovery seemed hopeless.

Part One: The Feral Child

The family had lived in the rundown rental house for almost three years when someone first saw a child’s face in the window.

A little girl, pale, with dark eyes, lifted a dirty blanket above the broken glass and peered out, one neighbor remembered.

Everyone knew a woman lived in the house with her boyfriend and two adult sons. But they had never seen a child there, had never noticed anyone playing in the overgrown yard.

The girl looked young, 5 or 6, and thin. Too thin. Her cheeks seemed sunken; her eyes were lost.

The child stared into the square of sunlight, then slipped away.

Months went by. The face never reappeared.

Just before noon on July 13, 2005, a Plant City police car pulled up outside that shattered window. Two officers went into the house ? and one stumbled back out.

Clutching his stomach, the rookie retched in the weeds.

Plant City Detective Mark Holste had been on the force for 18 years when he and his young partner were sent to the house on Old Sydney Road to stand by during a child abuse investigation. Someone had finally called the police.

They found a car parked outside. The driver’s door was open and a woman was slumped over in her seat, sobbing. She was an investigator for the Florida Department of Children and Families.

“Unbelievable,” she told Holste. “The worst I’ve ever seen.”
