CPS Takes Daughter Away from Parents Because they Smoked Weed While She Was Asleep. Daughter Beaten to Death in Foster Home.
ROUND ROCK — He never thought his visit with her Thursday, July 25 would be his last.
“We got to sit down at McDonalds and have lunch and play for a while,” said Round Rock resident Joshua Hill.
“She got a little ‘Despicable Me 2’ toy in her happy meal and she loved it. She kept climbing up in my lap and she fed me french fries.”
But on Monday night, Hill’s daughter Alexandria, or Alex as they liked to call her, was rushed to a Rockdale hospital with severe head injuries, then flown to Scott and White Children’s Emergency Hospital in Temple and immediately placed on life support.
Alex was living with foster parents after DFPS removed her from her parent’s home last November for “neglectful supervision.”
A Westmoreland County boy whose lungs were damaged after smoking artificial marijuana died this morning.
Tonya Rice of Tarrs said her son, Brandon, was a “fighter, a real fighter.”
The 13-year-old Southmoreland eighth-grader lost the fight for his life at 8:21 a.m. today in UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, his mother said.
Brandon had a double-lung transplant in September after becoming ill from smoking a synthetic form of marijuana known by various names, such as K2, Spice, Blaze and Vanilla Sky. In June, Brandon was placed on a respirator to keep him alive. He developed an infection because the drugs he has been administered since the transplant surgery had weakened his immune system, making it difficult for him to overcome the infection, said his mother.
“He was smart. He was caring. He was a good baseball player. He loved to hunt. He loved to fish. He was a fighter,” said Tonya Rice. “It was hard, very hard. He couldn’t talk to us. We had to read his lips. A lot of times we couldn’t understand what he was saying. He fought and fought and fought.”
Brandon smoked the fake drug from a plastic PEZ candy dispenser. The chemicals in the drug caused extensive damage .
“Thursday’s a month to the day he had the transplant,” his mother said. “He was sick going into it but he was so strong. He would have made it through but he got an infection he couldn’t fight.”
HEMET, Calif. (KABC) — A pot bust at a Hemet home yielded more than just marijuana to the surprise of narcotics agents.
A 4-foot-long, 55-pound American alligator was found in a bathing pool, guarding the more than 2,200 marijuana plants — worth more than $1.5 million.
“If he were to bit somebody, yeah, he could do quite a bit of damage,” said Joel Almquist, owner of Forever Wild Exotic Animal Sanctuary in Phelan, Calif.
That may be why the owner, John Nathan Donna, allegedly thought it would be a good idea to keep the pet gator as a sort of watchdog over his crop. The 29-year-old was arrested and charged for cultivation of marijuana and possession, both felonies. He was released Tuesday on $100,000 bail.
Almquist was called in to capture and remove the animal named Wally.
“This one here is absolutely beautiful. He’s probably a little too well taken care of. He’s absolutely perfect in every way and real mellow,” he said of the alligator, which is believed to be about 5 or 6 years old.
It is illegal to own an alligator in California.
“One illegal activity kind of brings on more illegal activity. I’ve gotten several calls from sheriff’s departments, police departments, what not, where there have been cobras in the houses, exotic cats in the houses,” recalled Almquist.
Wally will be in the company of 16 other rescued gators. Almquist said keeping in line with the animal’s claim to fame, Wally may be given a new name — Marley for the famous reggae singer Bob Marley.
The alligator will now call Forever Wild is new home. The sanctuary is better known for its stock of exotic and wild cats.
Comon Steve stop acting so SHOCKED.. I’m sure you’ve smoked a few in your day.
Two idiots posted a Craigslist ad hoping to trade a 3rd generation iPod Touch and a 1/4 ounce of weed for a new iPad. They got arrested and will soon be trading their asses for cigarettes in the slammer.
The pot was conveniently placed in a jar on a scale, so potential traders–and police–would now exactly what they were getting into with the deal. When undercover officers were offered the pot during a meeting, arrests–and tech history–were made.
Both men currently face charges for possession of an illegal substance and conspiracy to sell Marijuana.
