Another stupid parent story,

Another stupid parent story, without which your day just wouldn't be complete. Mother and Stepfather, who lobbied for a stricter definition of 'rape' in Ohio, are charged with raping their daughter (via artificial insemination). I hate people.

I think the word horrific is more appropriate than stupid. oh, keerist.

If there is any case for capital punishment for rape, I think we've found it. Can anyone think of a reason why we shouldn't axe these two right out?

None here.

That is really a disgusting story. To think that those 2 supposed parents wanted to raise anther child.
I am confused with the $500 bail though. Is the court not taking it seriously?

I would start with immediate sterilization for these 2 sick bastards. And maybe confiscate any belongings, convert them to capital and award it to the daughter.

Really a disgusting article that makes me angry.

I'm sure they have a very good reason for refusing to let her learn to read, raping her, stealing her child, and threatening to kill her. Let's hear their side.

And then axe them.

I've found that some links that turn up here literally make my jaw drop in shock. This was one of those. Still, I notice:

Because Narda Goff could no longer give birth, she wanted her daughter to bear John Goff's child.

but she's charged with complicity to the crime rather than the crime itself. Which seems a bit odd to me, but then I must be missing something.

As shocking and disgusting and horrifying and terrifying as the details are, there's one thing that keeps coming back to me: they knew enough not to do it the old-fashioned way. Is this because they knew it would be statutory rape, or because it was icky, or because the mom would have been jealous, or because they felt some sort of perverted compassion for the girl?

It's too much to try to understand.

See, this is why we at MeFi should start a fund. We'll call it Sending Ezrael out to beat evil fuckwads near to death and how it works is, we'll all kick five bucks into the kitty once a month. At the end of the month, we'll have one of those spinning drums, and we'll select one lucky fuckwad for me to go visit, spending as much money from the fund as I need to get to their house or residence, beat them within an inch of their lives, grab a sandwich and head on out.

Anybody behind this idea?

Ezrael, do you take PayPal?

Ezrael, your plan sounds good.

I've got one important quiestion though: would you grab the sandwich from the house, or would you buy it with money from the fund? Would you really want to eat something out of a refrigerator owned by someone who would do this to a child? I wouldn't.

On a more serious note, can you imagine being in DCF or a judge having this case come up? Or being the fiance the article mentions, and having your wife to be telling you about all this? Or being the girl herself, as her supposed parents beat the drum to protect her in public from what they were doing to her in private?

Excuse me a second.

GRRRRRRARRRRRGH! SWEET BLOODY WEEPING WOUNDS IN CHRIST'S SIDE! WHAT THE FUCK!?!

Okay, I'm better now.

mudbug, I might take food stamps for this one. IOU's, firm handshakes...consider me working on a sliding scale. (Alert to thought police - This is satirical. Go read Jonathan Swift, okay?)

I thought it was normal. I had been molested for so long, I thought every family does this.

it is amazing what we learn, and what we teach. I have heard that nearly-exact phrase from too many people.

Ezreal, I would pack you a lunch.

I don't believe in capital punishment. I think the state should just cut off both hands on each parent, instead.

Ezrael, Can't let you go it alone.

I will kick in with you (literally).

A family member recently married someone who was abused as a child ... it came out during an argument. It's truly terrifying if you think about it -- all those kids out there who have no idea that they are suffering, they just think they're "normal."

Ezrael, if you do decide to go give these people the beating they obviously deserve, as you're making the post-beating sammich--be very careful...that might not be mayonaisse in that jar...

Ezrael, not only would I be your lookout, I'd cook you a five course meal afterward and take care of any pesky legal problems that might crop up, pro bono.

Nothing like a couple of complete wastes of human flesh to bring everyone together. Oh, and I'll be buying my sandwich afterwards, on the fund. I don't like mayo anyway, but by God even if I did I wouldn't eat anything these people would have in their house.

I mean, on a serious note, what kind of dementia makes you decide to do all this to your own kid? I know logically that I can't walk the earth beating up everyone who does this kind of thing...but how does anyone wake up one day and decide Hey, so I can't have a child...but I can inject my daughter with my husband's sperm against her will without stopping to realize how completely bugfuck it is?

I...I...I...

Jesus.

You fight to have your daughter's rape taken care of in court, and then you treat her like the family BROOD MARE? And keep her illiterate, to boot?

Ezrael, you go kick those fuckers into next week. I hope this girl can somehow get a tutor, a psychologist, and all the help she's undoubtedly needing.

Oh, and...

"After repeated tries over four days, it worked. "

Can you imagine enduring *that* over four days...at the age of 16?

I'm amazed she didn't completely snap. Truly.

And my mother wonders why I don't keep track of the news anymore.
