This makes THREE today - this 17yo boy abducted his friend's 10yo sister. The 17yo had sent a message via social media to the 10yo last summer which was dismissed as being "caring". (um, WHY does a 10yo have a social media account???) The 17yo entered the house through a window he himself left unlocked in the basement when he was visiting the house the day before...he abducted the 10yo girl after she fell asleep on the couch. Check out the "task list" the police found on the perpetrator's phone: "Take her to a secondary location, explain everything to her, smother her, rape her dead body, clean up and then pose the body … photograph her, dispose of her body, leave town,” the probable-cause statement said. The list said that he was going to rehearse the abduction and wear latex gloves. He planned to hide in a foreclosed home and steal money and cars."
O’FALLON — A high school senior who was obsessed with his friend’s 10-year-old sister abducted her from her home early Thursday and planned to rape and kill her, police said.Posted - 17 hours ago
This teacher was sending encrypted messages home with an 11yo girl student by circling her phone number in separate math problems on a worksheet. The teacher claims that there was nothing sexual just "deep love" for the child. The child had made journal entries of the things that she and the teacher would be able to do once she and the teacher ran away together. Incredible. Thanks to Kimye for sharing

Ok Rosetta Stone I understand that mistakes happen, truly I do! HOWEVER the irony of this is just too great to let go....my son and I were doing a college visit and I grabbed a flyer from thinkEDU which offers discounted software to students. In this flyer, the Rosetta Stone ad is the full back page. ((see image)) **The word "languages" is misspelled on the flyer which is being distributed IN a university BOOK STORE, in which students are being encouraged by thinkEDU to, well, THINK. Do I win a prize? I've always wanted to learn Italian. :)Posted - 2 days ago
