Texas woman arrested for waterboarding disabled son and tying rope around his genitals

Published

on

A 40-year-old Texas woman was arrested after her son told investigators that she and her boyfriend waterboarded him and tied a rope around his genitals to punish him, KTVT-TV reported.

Christi Howell is also accused of beating the boy with a stick to punish him for not having “good form” doing push-ups. A separate arrest warrant was issued for the suspect’s 45-year-old boyfriend, Casey Shackleford, who allegedly took part in the abuse.

The victim was described as being under 14 years old and living with an unspecified mental disability. WFAA-TV reported that the incident allegedly began when the boy told Shackleford that he had “put his finger inside the family dog’s butt.”

Shackleford then allegedly grabbed the boy by the hair and pinned him against a couch with a towel over his face before telling Howell to pour cold water on his face. He also told Howell to tie a “pig rope” around the boy’s “private parts.”

According to an arrest warrant, Howell complied and “pulled on the rope as if she was trying to pull him around and off the couch,” before further tying the rope around the victim’s neck. After she did so, Shackleford pushed him back onto the couch, causing the rope to tighten.

The alleged attack came to light after Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Jimmy Weisbruch witnessed an interview between the boy and the county Children’s Advocacy Center on Feb. 8. An affadavit stated that the boy told Shackleford about his actions toward the dog because “he wanted to be honest and admit what he had done.”

The boy also said that Howell would also punish him on other occasions for not having “good form” while doing pushups by hitting him in the back and elbows with a stick. She was charged with causing injury to a child, and her bond was set at $250,000.

Writing on Twitter, the president accused Iran of making a "very ignorant and insulting statement" against him, which he said "only shows that they do not understand reality."

The president then threatened the nation with "obliteration" if it didn't wise up.

"Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force," he wrote. "In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!"

‘Incoherent’ Trump blistered by ex-National Security Council member for acting as Putin’s unwitting stooge

Published

In a ferocious column for Politico, a former member of the National Security Council who served under both President George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton called out Donald Trump for what he called the president's "incomprehensible" policies when it comes to Russia.

According to Andrew S. Weiss, vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment, the American president is likely the best friend Russian President Vladimir Putin could wish for.

Pointing out that Trump's meeting with Putin in Osaka is only days away, Weiss, who worked on Russian affairs in the State Department, said the get-together is happening just as three government officials with the most experience dealing with Russia -- Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Joseph Dunford, the NSC’s in-house Russia expert Fiona Hill, and U.S. Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman -- are leaving the administration.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
