Teen Mother Arrested After Posting Facebook Photo Of 6-Month-Old Baby Brandishing Knife

A teen mother from San Diego allegedly uploaded a disturbing photo to Facebook of her 6-month-old baby brandishing a knife, which was nearly as big as the child’s arm. She also reportedly posted a video that showed her crying baby being repeatedly smacked in the head.

Fellow Facebook users who watched the upsetting footage immediately alerted police, and Jowi Victoria Morales, 18, was arrested last Thursday for outstanding domestic violence charges. It is unclear if the assault is being conducted by Morales or another person, and it is unknown if the charges are related to this incident.

“Very, very, very sad,” neighbor Guillermina Contreras told NBC7. “I do know that in that house there was trouble.”

The Child Abuse and Domestic Violence investigators are reportedly looking into this case. According to Fox5 San Diego, the child has not suffered any injuries.

Prison Guards Mock Disabled Inmate Who Was Gassed To Death On Facebook

A handful of correctional officers are accused of mocking an inmate who died in a Carrabelle, Florida prison while begging for medical attention. The officers were responding to story published in the Miami Herald last week about an active lawsuit against corrections for the death of Randall Jordan-Aparo. They called the dead inmate a “b*tch” and other names on a private Facebook page dedicated to Florida corrections officers.

Jordan-Aparo, 27, allegedly spent four entire days begging for medical help. According to court records, medical staff dismissed his desire to take him to a hospital and instead gave him mere Tylenol pills for his ailments. According to the Miami Herald, he suffered from a rare genetic blood disorder, which was noted in his prison medical file.

When Jordan-Aparo disagreed with his treatment, he was allegedly put in an isolation cell where he was sprayed with a “chemical restraint agent.”

I told him to stop, but he was strong. I fought him off as hard as I could but he grabbed my face in his hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to f*** me. I was paralyzed, terrified. I couldn’t speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me.”

New Details In Kenneka Jenkins Case Reveal What ‘Help Me’ Screams In Viral Facebook Live Really Were

On Friday, police released dozens of police reports and witness statements regarding the death of Kenneka Jenkins, which address several of the rumors surrounding her death last month. The 19-year-old was found dead in a hotel’s industrial walk-in freezer in Rosemont, Illinois after attending a party on the ninth floor of the hotel with friends a day and a half earlier.
Her death was ruled an accident earlier this month. The medical examiner’s office blamed hypothermia, “cold exposure in a walk-in freezer.”  “Ethanol and topiramate intoxication” contributed to her tragic death, the findings concluded. Topiramate is medication used for epilepsy and migraine treatment. According to CNN, an autopsy found stomach lesions consistent with hypothermia.

The newly released police documents reveal how Jenkins seemed sad. She drank cognac heavily and then seemingly wandered off after her friends left her in a hallway, according to the Chicago Tribune. The reports

Mom Pens Heartbreaking Facebook Post After Teens Allegedly Try To Lynch 8-Year-Old Biracial Son

The mother of an 8-year-old boy from Claremont, New Hampshire, posted a devastating message on Facebook before deleting it.

“So my son is being flown to Dartmouth after a 14-year-old kid decided to hang him from a tree. I don’t care if this was a so called accident or not. My son almost died because of some little s*** teenage kids,” Cassandra Merlin wrote on Facebook, alongside a photograph of her son’s injuries.

Her unidentified 8-year-old was treated for his injuries in the hospital, according to The Root.

She later wrote on Facebook:

 “I just want to put this out there, my only intentions of making Quincys story public is show this country that racism does in fact still exist. That it is still so alive that our children are living in a world of hate. Being exposed to all types of hatred. It truly saddens me that even in a city

Terrifying ‘Clown Purge’ Facebook Page Emerges Following The ‘It’ Movie Premiere

Well folks, looks like the evil clowns are at it again.

Last year, they scared us with by trying to luring kids into the woods and, in some instances, stabbing strangers. This year, inspired by the new hit horror movie “It,” they’ve unleashed a whole new reign of terror.

The group, which has over 4,000 followers, is planning a series of pranks this Saturday and sending out a pack of killer clowns into the Sydney suburbs. They also claim to have left red balloons around town with clues as to where they’ll be clowning around.

Though Coulrophobia, or the fear of clowns, goes back decades, the modern killer clown archetype and iconic red balloon are hallmarks of

Cop Pens Facebook Post Mocking Protester Hit By Car During White Supremacist Rally

A Massachusetts police officer mocked the counter-demonstrators who were mowed down during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday.

“Hahahaha love this, maybe people shouldn’t block roads,” Springfield Officer Conrad Lariviere wrote in a Facebook comment on a news article about the incident.

Springfield Police Commissioner John Barbieri said the department has launched an investigation into the officer’s comments, according to ABC News.

“I received notification of this Facebook post earlier today via email from a complainant. The post is purportedly from Springfield police officer.

Village President In Michigan: “I Owe Nobody An Apology” For Sharing Facebook Post Calling To Kill All Muslims

A Kalkaska, Michigan village president said this week that he does not owe anyone an apology for what some are calling a series hateful social media posts, according to The Associated Press. Jeff Sieting, who has been the village president since 2010, made Facebook posts denouncing Islam and calling for the killing of “every last Muslim.”

His posts sparked a protest in the village and residents of Kalkaska called for his apology last month. Several are working to oust him from office. Sieting does have a  group of supporters who live in the rural area in Northern Michigan, according to the AP.

Sieting shared one anti-Muslim post, according to Michigan Live, entitled “Kill them all, every last one,” copied from a North Carolina group last November. That post calls muslims “dangerously destructive to society.” It compares Islam to a “flesh-eating bacteria.”

In a February Facebook post, he wrote:
