12-year-old Pennsylvania boy dies after being beaten, starved, and locked in a waste-filled room for most of his life, police say
When detectives entered the room on May 26, here’s what they found, according to PennLive:
They said the boy was completely naked and his feces-covered body was sprawled across a bed that was covered in human waste, in a room that was caked with such waste that was so old it had turned moldy.
“Claw marks appeared in the child victim’s sheets,” they wrote. “Such marks made indentations on the stained feces.”
The smell of human waste permeated the second floor of the home, they said.
There were no lights in the boy’s room and the window shades were closed with duct tape so the child had no access to sunlight or even a view of the outside world … metal hooks kept the room locked from outside.
Heritage Action for America announced on Monday that billboards went up in Atlanta, Dallas, and New York City.
The billboards — a call to action to support law enforcement officials — come amid a time of heightened police-community tensions in the country.
The six billboards — which call on citizens to sign the Heritage Action’s Police Pledge — will remain up for two weeks.
Anderson added that the billboards are meant to be especially impactful for the cities in which they were placed.
Rufo said Tuesday on Twitter, nevertheless, that there must be “consequences for the federal employees who brazenly violated a presidential order.”
“If there is no action from the CDC Director in the next 72 hours, I will begin releasing the names of those involved,” Rufo warned.
The CDC program planned to encourage employees to join an “Anti-Racism Collaborative with eight Collective Action Teams” focused on “communications,” making scientific publications “anti-racist” and influencing “policy and legislation.”
Two of the suspects, identified as Raul Paz-Perez and Wilmer Paz-Perez, both 35, were arrested Saturday on a charge of first-degree rape involving a juvenile under the age of 13, Kenner police said.
A third brother, 31-year-old Elder Paz-Perez, is still being sought as of early Tuesday on the same charge, Lt. Michael Cunningham told The Post.
The three brothers were alone with the 10-year-old girl at a home in Kenner on Wednesday when they made sexual advances toward her, offering her money for sex acts, Cunningham said.
The young girl locked herself in a bedroom, but one of the brothers managed to bust inside, Cunningham said.

FOX NEWS VIDEO: McBride: Law enforcement is the only profession where people want to kill you because of your job
L.A. Police Detective League director Jamie McBride reacts to ‘hope they die’ chants outside hospital where Los Angeles deputies are recovering from attack.
Our big, bureaucratic, federal government literally doesn’t know who’s dead or who’s alive.
In the arena of insane news that has unfortunately become all too normal these days… even this headline stands out:
IRS sends $1.6 billion dollars via the Paycheck Protection Program and Covid-19 relief money to dead people.
A study by Pew Research Center estimates that there are as many as 24 million ineligible or inaccurate voters on state voter polls… meanwhile, federal election data since 2012 indicates that over 28 million mail-in ballots were deemed undeliverable.
Bottomline: IF the US intends to rely on mail-in votes, someone needs to get a handle on the inaccurate data…FAST.
But, I have a better, easier suggestion…

Columbia University Marching Band Votes to Dissolve Itself, Citing Accusations of “Assault, Theft, Racism”
The move comes after band members wrote to the organization’s board of directors arguing that the band’s “alleged traditions of misconduct” were ingrained in the band’s culture and calling on the board to disband the organization, according to Columbia’s student newspaper.
The band, founded over a century ago in 1904, said that it plans to release a “more thorough apology” as well as a roadmap for its dissolution in the coming days. “For many, the damage experienced at the hands of the CUMB may be irreparable, and the Band will not be asking for or expecting any forgiveness,” the statement said.
The Columbia administration stripped the band of university funding in 2017 after band members stormed the university library.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters detailed charges against 22-year-old Tevin Henderson, who faces decades in prison and a permanent spot on the sex offender registry for the repeated rape of a 12-year-old “family acquaintance” at a residence in Winton Terrace.
On a personal note, I’d like to say the following.
These types of cases are much too prevalent in our area and nationwide.
It makes me sick to my stomach. To prey upon a young girl sexually, impregnate her, and think nothing of it is disgusting and should be totally unacceptable to everyone who hears of these acts.

Judicial Watch received 47 pages of documents from the Department of Justice which includes a May 17, 2017, email documenting that Robert Mueller informed the Attorney General’s office he was withdrawing from consideration for director of the FBI.
This recently released email raises new questions about Mueller’s testimony to the House Judiciary Committee on July 24, 2019, where he said a May 16, 2017 interview with President Donald Trump was “not about me applying for the job” as FBI director.
FOX NEWS VIDEO: Victor Davis Hanson: Biden can’t criticize violence because he’s being held hostage by elements of his base
Hoover Institution senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson joins Laura Ingraham with insight on ‘The Ingraham Angle.’
The House is traditionally out of town for much of late September and October as members scatter to their districts for the stretch run of their reelection campaigns.
If Pelosi keeps members in D.C. until a coronavirus relief package is passed it could harm vulnerable incumbents of both parties who could otherwise be meeting with constituents in their efforts to remain in office.
But House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., noted the deal would be negotiated at the leadership level so rank-and-file members would not necessarily need to stay in their offices every day.
There may be some breaking in the Democratic coalition, however, as pressure ratchets up on both sides of the aisle to do something as the election nears and the pandemic continues.
The choice in November couldn’t be clearer: liberty or lockdown.

In their first full day back to Washington since the summer recess, the GOP House members gathered outside the Capitol in a show of force and unity.
Their message was that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and her fellow Democrats failed in their two years in power, and it’s time to return the House to GOP control.
The Justice Department opened a criminal inquiry into whether former White House national security adviser John Bolton unlawfully disclosed classified information in his latest book.

A White House Memoir, according to multiple reports on Tuesday.
Rasmussen Reports confirmed its newest survey results show “Three-out-of-four voters who’ve had violent anti-police protests in their community rate those protests important to their vote in the presidential election.

Earlier in the Oval Office, Trump said “we’re very far down the road with about five additional countries.”
He declined to name the countries he is speaking with and later said it could be “five or six” other countries.
1) History was marked today, when less than two hours ago, the Jewish State of Israel signed two separate bilateral’ agreements with the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Bahrain – under the auspices of the United States.
2) The leading Islamic clerics of the city of Mecca have made an unprecedented call for Muslims around the world to avoid “passionate emotions and fiery enthusiasm” toward the Jewish people – in a dramatic shift that may allude to Riyadh’s intent of altering its position toward normalizing relations with the Jewish State.
3) Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh declared today’s historic peace agreement between Israel, the UAE and Bahrain, to be a black day in the history of the Arab nation.
Tristan Justice and Emily Jashinsky discuss why Bob Woodward’s “bombshell” report on President Trump’s public downplaying of the coronavirus pandemic isn’t a bombshell at all, and explain why the media’s reaction to it was telling.
Bolton will have his book out despite violating his trust with the president, his nondisclosure agreement, and the federal classification laws.
For that success, however, he could lose his profits and even his liberty.
In waiting for Bolton to run, the Justice Department handed him just enough rope to hang himself.
Given the prior notice of classified content, it could bring a criminal prosecution under the Espionage Act, though such prosecutions are rare and difficult.
The main goal would be the profits. It has happened before.
