Now sit cha asses down, and stop cryin’ like a bitch."
I would’ve killed him.
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Police say a Daytona Beach father beat an 18-year-old man unconscious after he allegedly caught him sexually abusing his 11-year-old son.
The suspect appeared in court, his eyes almost swollen shut.
His face is covered in bruises but police say the man who did the beating isn’t facing any charges.
Officers say the father of the rape victim did exactly what many parents would do in his situation.
“Dad reacted like a dad. He’s acting like a father, protecting his son and he’s furious over what has occurred,” said Chief Mike Chitwood, with the Daytona Beach Police Department.
“I just walked in and found a grown man molesting [my son]… and I got him in a bloody puddle for you right now officer,” the father said on the 911 call.
Authorities say Raymond Frolander asked the 11-year-old boy first to sit on his lap, then took him to a bedroom, pulled his pants down and the child’s, sexually battering him.
That’s the scenario the victim’s father walked in on.
“You beat him up?” asked the 911 dispatcher.
“Oh yeah, send him an ambulance. He’s going to need one,” said the father.
According to the victim, Raymond Frolander had been abusing him for more than three years.
Authorities say he was a trusted family friend who would always play video games with the boy.
“The young man was in fear that if he didn’t comply, he’d get hurt,” said Chief Chitwood.
Frolander allegedly admitted to the ongoing sexual abuse, saying ‘I’m guilty.’
He also claimed he had been abused as a child.
“I knew what was going on and I did what I had a right to except I didn’t kill him. You are damn lucky boy that I love my God,” said the father on the 911 call.
Due to the nature of the crime, a judge ruled that Frolander will be held without bond.
People ask me all the time, “What is your problem with cops?”
I wonder how many more stories I have to post before it finally sinks in.
In February, Beth Gatny of the Euharlee, Georgia, police department fatally shot 17-year-old Christopher Roupe after the boy opened the door for the officer. Gatny was at the residence to serve a probation warrant for Roupe’s father. Police claimed the 17-year old pointed a gun at the officer but the family insisted he as holding a Nintendo Wii controller. One witness said she saw the cop sobbing into her hands after the shooting.
In April, a grand jury recommended the District Attorney, Rosemary Greene, take action, finding the use of deadly force was not authorized. The DA’s office said it would collect additional evidence and return to a grand jury. Unfortunately you can probably guess what happened next. Via WSB-TV in Atlanta:
The District Attorney’s Office for the Cherokee Judicial Circuit presented a proposed indictment charging Gatny with involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct. However, the grand jury did not find sufficient evidence for the case to proceed to trial.
"Because the Grand Jury has determined that the actions of Officer Gatny did not rise to the level of a criminal offense, this concludes the involvement of the District Attorney’s Office in this matter," District Attorney Rosemary Greene said.
Gatny, who had been with the Euharlee Police Department less than a year, was fired from her previous police job, in Acworth, Georgia. While there, among other things, she apparently shot a suspect while he was trying to remove his backpack, believing he was going for a gun. She was fired for exhausting her medical leave.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation completed its investigation into the shooting sometime in April and sent the results to the DA. That report does not appear to have been made public but Reason has placed an open records request for the final report.
Israel: You guys should probably evacuate, we're going to drop some bombs.
Gaza: Okay, we're coming!
Israel: Well, actually, you can't come in to Israel, since you're Palestinians.
Gaza: But, you control all of our borders, where do we go?
Israel: Sounds like a personal problem.
Gaza: .... So, stay here?
Israel: If you want, but don't say we didn't warn you..
i’m listening to a soldier on NPR tell the story of how he fatally shot an afghan kid that he described as between thirteen and fourteen years old. he said he felt “sick” and woozy, and his buddy comforted him and told him it would be okay. but you know what? it isn’t. i hope you have nightmares for the rest of your life you fucking monster, may you never find peace, and when you die, straight to hell with you
There is no soldier that is overseas shooting innocent people, children or otherwise, that can come home and think “it’s going to be okay” or “it’s for the greater good” or “we’re keeping ‘murrica safe”.
Murder is murder, and when you put a bullet into a little boy’s chest, or a little girl’s brain - there is no justice. There is no safety. Nothing is okay. At that point, the U.S. is the terrorists, not them. They’re defending themselves, not coming in the offensive. Even 9/11 wasn’t the offensive. It was a group of people who’d simply had enough of the U.S.’s
occupation presence in their region of the world.
It seriously pisses me off when people take offense to the fact that I don’t feel like I should have to pay taxes on my income. Do you know how much I could do with that money? And secondly, I never fucking once gave my consent for it to be used to slaughter people in the Middle East. I’d give you my copy of the social contract to wipe the blood off your hands but I never got a copy and wouldn’t have signed it if I did.
It’s disgusting that instead of having compassion, showing empathy, or even trying to understand the plight of refugees, our friends and neighbors say, “send them home” - send them home to the very horrors that they are fleeing from.
It’s disgusting that we live in a world where transporting a dying migrant to a hospital without the government’s supervision and presence is a federal crime that will land you fifteen years in prison.
It’s disgusting that our majority, collective response to tens of thousands of refugee children from Central America, traveling thousands of miles without their parents, is to say, you don’t deserve to be here.
It’s disgusting that we live in a world that fuels the causes of forced migration and then criminalizes those who migrate in search of everything that has been stolen from them.
Enough with this bullshit about “a better life”. We are too far beyond “a better life” scenario."
