Real men aren't machistas, but most machistas believe they're the epitome of what a real man should be. Go figure. Now, if only machistas would keep their "I'm the man" attitude to themselves, we'd all be alright. But for the most part, they don't. Machistas often feel the need to prove that the king of the world by putting others down, eliminating competition, and being controlling a-holes--especially when it comes to the women in their lives.
Seriously, it's the worst.
When I first heard about this tragic story out of St. Petersburg, Florida, my heart just broke. I couldn't believe that a parent could be so careless over the life of a child they helped bring into this world. A 25-year-old father, John Jonchuck Jr., was stopped by a cop at a Tampa Bay bridge in Florida when he rushed over to the passenger side of his car, pulled out his 5-year-old daughter and then threw her over the bridge without a second thought. And then he just fled the scene!
I'll never understand why parents bring children into this world to treat them this way. A Florida baby starved to death in a car seat while her disgusting parents were feasting at an all-you-can-eat buffet. While Ruby Stephens and Roy Stephens were reportedly stuffing their faces, their innocent newborn daughter laid helplessly in her carseat. It turns out the baby had been neglected for days and the details are even more horrifying.
Mexican psychologist Maria Alejandra Lafuente Caso used her husband Allan Carrera Cuellar's cellphone to send text messages to his friends and family so they believed he was on a business trip after she had gruesomely murdered him. The 40-year-old woman allegedly decapitated her 41-year-old husband, cut his body into several pieces using a chainsaw and then scattered the remains around the capital of Mexico. She is claiming that her husband repeatedly beat her. She now faces life in prison.
A Las Vegas father of four is in jail accused of incest, felony child abuse and bestiality involving his own children. Over a 12-year period, 47-year-old Christopher Sena had sex with at least eight children ... including his own.
Online he presented himself as a devoted family man but obviously that is not the case because devoted family men do not sexually abuse children, videotape it and force the kids to have sex with animals; monsters do!
A VH1 star and her rapper husband were found dead in their Los Angeles apartment Monday morning, and it appears a well-known boxer may have been the only witness to what police are calling a gruesome murder-suicide. Hit the Floor actress Stephanie Moseley is believed to have been shot dead by her husband, rapper Earl Hayes. Though the details surrounding this terrible tragedy remain murky, the few that have developed are almost too shocking to be true.
Apparently, María de los Ángeles Pineda Villa is taking her reported crime to the grave. The former first lady is accused of hiring the Guerreros Unidos drug gang to "take care of" the 43 college students who were protesting on Iguala's plaza. The woman, who has been dubbed "The First Lady of Murder" and "The First Lady of Narcoticsm" was captured on November 5 alongside her husband José Luis Abarca Velázquez in the slums of Iztapalapa. Becoming fugitives definitely doesn't help their defense, but despite all of that Villa is trying to claim her innocence by staying silent.
The shocking moment a police officer punched a 15-year-old girl and put her in a headlock was caught on camera, and let me tell you, it's pretty sickening. The 70 second clip shows a police officer wresting a teen girl onto the ground, as she begs the officer to "please stop." She can't breathe, she shouts. But alas, the officer doesn't stop. Not even when the unidentified teen's mother comes over to defend her daughter and inform the officer that not only does the teen suffer from a mental illness, but she's asthmatic, too. As terrible as that is, believe it or not, the officer's partner said it could have been much worse. He said the cop could have shot her dead.
It's stories like these that make you question humanity. A 13-year-old boy was found living behind a false wall in a linen closet in his father's home after being held captive since 2010. Gregory Jean Jr. had gone to visit his father Gregory Jean in Atlanta, Georgia, but was then never returned to his mother. He was finally found this weekend and reunited with his biological mother, but not after suffering years of abuse at the hands of his father and stepmother, Samantha Joy Davis.
Carl Sumner and his estranged wife Danielle Rowe don't agree on much these days, but they both agree on one thing: their now 8-year-old daughter was in fact sexually abused by Rowe's son in 2010. That's pretty much where their consensus starts and ends. In the four years since, Sumner and Rowe have fought tooth and nail over whether or not their daughter's sexually abusive half-brother should be able to visit with their daughter. Sumner says the boy shouldn't be allowed to spend time with his sister, and Rowe says he… should. What?
