Some humans really push the boundaries and make us question whether in fact all men are created equal and then people like Leroy Smith renew our faith in humanity!!!!
See the story here:
Henry Rayhons, 78, has been charged with third-degree felony sexual abuse, accused of having sex with his wife in a nursing home on May 23, 2014, eight days after staff members there told him they believed she was mentally unable to agree to sex.
This is such a compelling story…I’m not sure how I feel about it.

When I read this story this morning, my heart hurt. I just can’t understand this way of thinking – unimaginable and so terribly sad….I have no other words.
One of the men, Mukesh Singh, convicted of gang raping a woman on a bus in Delhi in 2012 has blamed his victim for the fatal attack, saying “girls are far more responsible for rape” than men. Speaking from prison where he is awaiting his execution he goes on to say:
“A decent girl won’t roam around at nine o’clock at night,” he said.
“A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy. Boys and girls are not equal.
“Housework and housekeeping is for girls, not roaming in discos and bars at night doing wrong things, wearing wrong clothes.
“About 20 per cent of girls are good.”
“When being raped, she shouldn’t fight back.
“She should just be silent and allow the rape. Then they’d have dropped her off after doing her and only hit the boy.”
Police said the victim, known as “Jyoti”, meaning “flame”, was found with multiple wounds and had also been raped with metal bars, causing catastrophic internal injuries.

I don’t understand what they think will happen to our children – because they learn about homosexuality, will they “become” gay? if they (more…)
After I published my Serve and Protect blog, I got a few emails (not comments directly on the blog because they didn’t want to take away from the Wynn family’s tragedy). They were emails suggesting that I should write about police brutality, police killing innocent unarmed people – basically police being murderers.
ANOTHER SENSELESS KILLING OF A POLICE OFFICER….this needs to end!
Shelly MacInnis-Wynn, wife of RCMP Cst David Wynn, is saying good bye to her husband – but not in the usual good bye and see you tonight way – she is saying good bye forever….
I think it’s pretty safe to say that when the majority of us are doing our daily routine to get ready for work – kissing our children, our spouses, taking the dog for a walk, grabbing a coffee – we assume that we won’t get killed at work and that our families won’t have to go through the agonizing experience or the numbness that comes with laying a loved one to rest because they were murdered at work.
