Child Forced to Run as Punishment-Sure Sounds Familiar

(CNN) -- An Alabama woman charged with murdering her 9-year-old stepdaughter has given birth, officials said Thursday.
Jessica Mae Hardin, 27 and Joyce Hardin Garrard, 46, are charged with murdering Savannah Hardin by forcing her to run around her family's house for three hours as punishment for lying about taking a candy bar. The girl was Garrard's granddaughter.
Savannah died Monday.

The story linked to above is on Nancy Grace tonight as well.

Reportedly, according to one of Dean West's stepsons, Mr. West forced them to run against their will.  He also reportedly had the youngest son dig a trench around the family home in Michigan, as punishment, a trench that reportedly eroded the foundation so badly it detracted from the value of the home Mr. West had used his wife's retirement money to buy.

I know that one of my own punishments for showing Lisa Saelens a bruise on my abdomen inflicted upon me in November 2008, I was forced to mix buckets of cement, five gallon buckets, so that Dean could pour them into a hole in the floor he had placed a safe in.   When he first came home that evening, he ordered me to start mixing cement, and told me not to worry, "everything was's all good."   By the third bucket he was well on his way to his nightly brandy binge, and when I sat down to take a little break, he lunged at me and began pulling my hair and beating me up.

I am posting this because this caused me to have flashbacks, not only to my own abuse, but to the images planted in my mind by the horror stories his adopted sons told me about his abuse toward them. I also remember the cigarette burns on my own grandchild's back, reportedly/allegedly inflicted by Mr. West.  This was documented in a juvenile court case in Ashtabula County, Ohio.

 To view some of the police reports made against Mr. West, look under "Links Worth Clicking" in the left column of this blog.  I haven't posted all I have in my possession.  Also, he was a self-proclaimed hobo who lived in every state but Hawaii for about ten years so there are likely other police reports and marriages out there. 

Some of the people discussed on this blog are or have been supposed directors of what have been purported to be charitable foundations, The Myria Foundation, and The Encyclopedia Foundation, and so are public figures subject to public scrutiny of their character. I was a duped into becoming involved, first as a "director" of The Encyclopedia Foundation and then as a "Founding Director" of The Myria Foundation, which I co-created, verifiable with the Illinois Secretary of State's office. I paid to incorporate The Myria Foundation and I have a legal right to discuss it. This is MY life, and I am a witness to and victim of crimes no one seems to want to do anything about (though last I knew there is an open criminal case against him in Sangamon County). I have over 2 feet of documents and hours of wav. files to back me up and the alleged illegal behaviors I write about here have been reported to the FBI, the Attorney General's office in Illinois, the State's Attorney of Sangamon County and the Springfield Police, the Ashtabula County, Oh, Sheriff and prosecutor, the Sangamon County, IL, Sheriff, and are part of various court records. It is my layman's opinion that Dean West is a sociopath, based on observed and documented behaviors. "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive." As a good citizen of the USA, I am outraged that Mr. West has been allowed to victimize me. His modus operandi is so clear. He uses his current female victim/s to help him get away with what he did to the last one. The domestic violence community is missing the boat on that aspect: women who stay in abusive relationships are sick. Allowing them to determine public policy and prosecution does not protect the public. Most men who beat women do not murder, they simply move on to the next victim. Most recently, Mr. West was charged with Domestic Violence against yet another female partner/director of the "foundation" (but she didn't show up at the trial and Judge Sanchez wouldn't grant the prosecutor a continuance to find her!) and just prior to that was on probation for resisting a peace officer, which started out as assault of a police officer. I know there is a warrant out for him violating the RO of one of his net victims in Paterson, New Jersey and there is a felony warrant for him out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota right now also for a sixth degree felony, violation of a stalking restraining order.
