Source: Examiner

It took a jury of Lisa Biron's peers less than one hour to convict of her of all charges. The evidence, according to Salon.com, against Biron was damning. It included video she took herself of her 14-year-old daughter having sex with adult men, and a video of Biron forcing herself sexually onto her daughter.

62. It was the most difficult job I've done.

Throughout my life I have tried to help those who could not help themselves.
Even now, as a private citizen I still do what I can to stop violence.




As part of our training: CPS Investigators are sent to Cornell University to learn what to expect to see and what to look for. All reports must be investigated within 24 hours of the call to an 800 number.

No matter how many cases you see you never become immune to a child's pain.

I wrote court petitions to remove children from abusive parents. Working with state police assistance, I rescued girls and boys.

6. I don't think 25 years is enough. Maybe for as long as the daughter suffers. That would be enough.

I know it's not the law, but no one will force this pervert to do what she did to her flesh and blood. She's getting off easy. The court should strip her parental rights. But they won't unless they have a law that says they must since children seem to be regarded as property in some societies. They may share the same DNA, but what she did was beyond the pale, not her right:

On Children

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of
Life's longing for itself.
They came through you but not from you.
And though they are with you
Yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love
But not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies
But not their souls,
For their souls dwell
in the house of tomorrow,
Which you cannot visit
Not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them
But seek not to make them like you,
For life goes not backward
Nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which
Your children as living arrows
Are sent forth.


~ Khalil Gibran

12. A Beautiful and moving poem by Kahlil Gibran!

You may house their bodies
But not their souls,
For their souls dwell
in the house of tomorrow,


The blight, that this mother (and I use that word loosely) inflicted upon her daughters very soul,is beyond words.

I weep for the child.

I damn her mothers soul to hell.

Thanks, Freshwest, for giving us a little beauty in the face of so much ugliness!

There such things as boundaries - respect. Which I believe right wingers have none. Or they would never do as they do.

The right, as they have shown time and time again, have no respect for children, their's or others.

They have no respect for women.

No respect for our laws or our nation as a whole. They have become beings, without souls, living in an antiquated time of their own making.

Dinosaurs became extinct, as will the GOP. This is my hope.

10. I think it's always about personality

America is awash in narcissists, some of them extreme, and often sadists

They believe in themselves. They may cloak themselves in religion or
family values, but anything they're in they're in for themselves

These self-aggrandized personalities is what it takes to be prominent
in the world, to crave the spotlight

As narcissists, they don't recognize the ordinary boundaries that the
rest of us do. They think they can tell others what to do, and are
entitled to do so, and all rules do not apply to themselves. They are
so important, and so dominant, that they can do anything they want
to.

Does it sort of fit?

40. Percent

of the population is probably unchanged. With increase in population density there are numerically more. Factor in the increase in aberrant activity due to the stress of overcrowding and they act out more. I'm from the 50's and let me tell ya there were plenty back then. But back then those dirty little secrets remained within the family. Our extended family had several and they did damage and were never called to answer for their actions. Those were the "Good Old Days".

This story makes me so angry on many fronts - child abuse, sexual abuse by a parent....

But that its coming from a mother no less and someone who fights against the rights of Gays to marry and have families as if Gays are perverse, angers me so much! Parenting is about love, not sexuality! This woman says Gays cant parent because they are sexual deviants! No - she is!!!!

She is also who an attorney who as an officer of the court has to follow the law....laws she broke on so many fronts...

prosecute her...put her away....disbar her for life...

47. What's shameful about the whole affair is this:

someone who fights against the rights of Gays to marry and have families as if Gays are perverse


This sums up their organization's whole argument- that Gays can't adopt or raise children because it's a 'moral hazard' to children.
Really, anti-gay organizations? A moral hazard?
Sound more to me like the ANTI-GAY ORGANIZATIONS are the 'moral hazard' to children. After this, they certainly are 'physically hazardous' to children.

35. I think a 25-year MINIMUM sentence is fairly reasonable ...

Actually I believe 25-to-life is about the same sentence as 2nd-degree murder ... in fact I'd bet many people get sentenced to less than 25 years for 2nd degree murder.

I'm not downplaying how 'wrong' this is, merely pointing out that it's fairly 'in-line' with what I'd expect, personally. If a person can spontaneously KILL someone else (i.e. 2nd degree murder, aka murder w/o premeditation ... vehicular homicide via drunk-driving, for example) and only get 25-to-life, then I don't think it's unreasonable to expect the punishment for the crime(s) at hand to be similar.

This being said, the conditions under which all this went down would (to me) play a role in determining whether or not this woman deserves to get 'life'. If this poor child was locked in a basement, denied food and water unless she complied, and/or administered drugs against her will then I would say YES, this woman absolutely deserves to spend her the rest of her life in jail. Due to prevailing sensitivities surrounding such matters, I will decline to outline the possible 'opposite end of the spectrum', but lets just say, if it was actually the opposite situation ... then I think 25 years could perhaps be reasonable/appropriate.

Bottom-line I trust the court/jury to consider the overall circumstances and mete out an appropriate sentence in this case.

Also, a 'man' would not get 30 years in jail for possessing a picture of her underage daughter. I don't know for a fact, but my guess is that the penalty for possession of a picture of a 14 year old in a compromising position would probably be more like 5 years. That's assuming the possessor was in no way involved in the 'production' of the photo (including actually paying for the picture), his only involvement was to 'possess' it ... I'd guess it'd land you like 5 years and a spot on the watch-list for the rest of your life.

My pointing this out does not in ANY WAY mean I don't think this whole thing is just about the sickest/saddest story I've ever heard, nor that I don't hope to see the friggin BOOK thrown at this woman. I'm just saying that I believe that a penalty that is JUST below what you'd expect for the most heinous of all crimes (aka 1st degree murder) ... is appropriately severe in this despicable case.

29. Why would anyone be "anti-gay"? What's in it for them?

I can see being anti-tax - you think this will help you pay less in tax; I can see being anti-war if you have a kid who might end up in the military. Even being anti-______ because you're worried that if the ______ people move in, you think property values will decline. Ignorant, yes, but you can see how in their tiny minds it might be self-serving.

But what is the point of expending ANY effort being anti-gay? What advantage does it provide to the hater? I can even maybe see some dumbass maybe voting for some anti-gay initiative because their minister told them to, but beyond voting, if a person has gone out of their way to publicize or work for an anti-gay cause, I just assume automatically they have HUGE issues with their own sexuality.

I hope I don't ever read stories about celebrities "coming out" because we as a society do not care. Is it too much to ask that we accept others differences and let our children be children?

It is and ALWAYS WILL BE a shield! A shield that the hater thinks will protect them from their own self-loathing. Alll of them have been taught that homosexuality is bad. Some are gay. Some have had gay dreams or thoughts. And some are just shallow pieces of shit with so much self hate that doing anything but turning it outward would probably kill them.
Pretty much goes for the super religious, holier-than-thou fucks too!
