Etc.

Here is more about that unbelievable tale out of Cleveland.

It sounds like three brothers were involved in this kidnapping case, one girl/woman for each of these assholes.

Cleveland police today praised kidnapping victim Amanda Berry for escaping the home of her captor and alerting authorities to the two other missing women being held against their will inside.

'The real hero here is Amanda,' Cleveland Deputy Police Chief Ed Tomba said at a press conference on Tuesday morning. 'She came out of that house and that started it all.'

Berry, who went missing a day before her 17th birthday in 2003, climbed through a screen door on Monday afternoon while her alleged captor was out and fled to a neighbor's home to call 911.

When police arrived minutes later, they found Gina DeJesus, 23, and Michele Knight, 32, who had also been missing for a decade, along with a six-year-old girl born to Berry while inside the home.

The praise for Amanda came as police revealed that Child Protective Services had been sent to the home in 2004, but left without speaking to the homeowner, Ariel Castro, after there was no answer.

Castro, 52, has been arrested along with his two brothers, Pedro, 54, and Oneil, 50. At the press conference, authorities said they believe they have the three men responsible, who will face charges.



If guilty, I'd say life without parole for that trio.

You just never know about your neighbors, friends, or even family.


The details are getting more disgusting by the hour:

The women found safe last night on Seymour Avenue were forced to have sex with their captors, resulting in up to five pregnancies, several police sources tell Channel 3 News.

Some good news has come out of Louisiana with regard to vouchers:

The vote was 6-1, with Justice Greg Guidry dissenting. The plaintiffs in the case include the Louisiana Association of Educators, the Louisiana Federation of Teachers and the Louisiana School Boards Association.

The ruling states that the per-pupil allocation, called the minimum foundation program or MFP, must go to public schools. Justice John Weimer writes, "The state funds approved through the unique MFP process cannot be diverted to nonpublic schools or other nonpublic course providers according to the clear, specific and unambiguous language of the constitution."

Furthermore, the court found that the instrument Jindal used to pass the MFP for the 2012-13 school year violated proper procedure and was therefore void from the start.

Time to boot Jindal and White out of Louisiana.
