Mom Who Nearly Starved Her Baby To Death With Kool-Aid Is Finally Taking Responsibility

An Idaho mom has finally decided to plead guilty in the near-starvation of her baby girl, who was premature.

According to KTVB, 21-year-old Tiffany Knapp, of Caldwell, admitted to injury to a child in court on Monday afternoon and may spend up to 10 years in prison for her horrendous crime against her own child.

While Knapp was not arrested until late last year, the investigation into her actions began in March of 2016.

On March 8, 2016, authorities discovered Knapp’s daughter, who was already 8 months old at the time, in horrifying conditions at her family’s home.

According to court documents, by the time she was finally rescued, the baby girl weighed no more than 11 pounds—severely underweight for an 8-month-old baby.

Child Protective Services reportedly launched an investigation after receiving a tip that there was a “severely malnourished and underweight” child living in Knapp’s home.

Medical personnel who examined the baby at the West Valley emergency room later revealed that the baby girl likely would have died in a matter of days had she not been taken to the hospital when she was, according to KTVB.

Authorities wrote in a Caldwell Police report that after questioning Knapp extensively, they were stunned to learn that the tiny baby had been fed nothing but watered-down milk and Kool-Aid.

Surprisingly enough, the baby girl already had health problems at birth; she was premature.

According to reports, doctors had prescribed the baby girl a special type of formula that was supposed to help her gain weight quickly.

The police report shows that Knapp never picked up the prescription, even though she knew she was supposed to get it.

In fact, Knapp reportedly told authorities that she remembered the prescription, but she “just spaced it.”

It came as no surprise to police when doctors explained to them that the baby girl’s poor weight gain was a direct result of her lack of nutrition.

After being taken into custody by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare and placed in foster care, the baby reportedly gained a full four pounds in just 20 days.

Earlier this week, Knapp pleaded guilty to a felony for neglecting to feed the girl. She is expected back in court to be sentenced on April 3, 2017.

While the baby was said to be in foster care back in September, after her mother was arrested, it is unclear exactly where she’s being cared for now.

Sensing They Are In Danger, 3 Smart Children Wait Until They Get To School To Reveal What Dad Did To Mom After Church

A Missouri father is facing very serious charges after his children informed a teacher that they thought their dad had killed their mom.

According to FOX 4, authorities were sent to an Independence school on Monday, right after students had told their teachers that they were certain their father had killed their mother, Yadira Gomez.

Court documents show that one of Gomez’s children, who is 9 years old, revealed that police that his mother and father had started arguing immediately after church on Sunday.

According to the young boy, it didn’t take long before the couple’s bickering turned into a full-blown physical altercation.

The boy and his siblings then decided to go downstairs, where they heard their father, 46-year-old Vicente Roldan-Marron, yelling “why did I do that, and it was really dumb.”

According to court records, that’s when the children finally went back upstairs and saw their mother lying on the floor, lifeless and covered in blood.

Likely knowing that they may have been in danger, the children decided not to confront their father about seeing their mother’s body.

Instead, the quick-thinking children, ages 6, 8, and 9, said absolutely nothing about the murder.

On Monday morning, the children woke up their father and asked him to take them to school, where all three of them attended Independence Elementary.

That was when they finally felt safe enough to tell their teachers what they had seen at home.

Authorities later paid a visit to Roldan-Marron’s home, where they found the body of Gomez. Her husband had apparently stabbed her with a giant butcher knife.

Roldan-Marron reportedly told the investigators that he had been drinking and taking pills the night he killed his wife and remembered nothing because he allegedly “blacked out.”

He also said that any wounds on his own body were self-inflicted.

Roldan-Marron has since been arrested and charged with armed criminal action and first degree murder.

Prosecutors have since requested that Roldan-Marron’s bond be set at $500,000 cash, according to FOX 4.

Once the Independence Police Department shared the heartbreaking news on Facebook, several people in the community revealed how shocked they were by the loss of such a wonderful mother.

“Thank you IPD for getting him! I knew the victim. I pray for healing for her family, friends, and all those affected,” one woman commented.

“I feel bad for the children and the moms family, I saw them at school and in the neighborhood. Praying for them,” another commented.

Good Samaritan Recognized for Assisting State Trooper With Violent Suspec

When Charles Barney saw a Missouri Highway Patrol trooper struggling with a suspect on the side of the interstate, he knew he had to do something to help.

The trooper, Beau Ryun, had pulled over 22-year-old Johnathan Timmons about 11 a.m. Tuesday on Interstate 70, and when he smelled marijuana in his car, Ryun asked Timmons to step outside the vehicle, according to

But, when the trooper tried to put handcuffs on Timmons, the suspect resisted.
“We began fighting on the side of the interstate,” Ryun said, explaining that his uniform radio had stopped working during the altercation, rendering him unable contact dispatchers and request help.

Fortunately, the help Ryun needed was passing by at just the right time — Barney and his fiancé, who was the first one to notice the officer struggling with the suspect.

“That guy was just fighting and screaming, fighting and screaming, he just kept resisting, kept resisting, kept resisting,” Barney, 38, told

The quick-thinking good Samaritan used Ryun’s patrol car radio to call for backup for the trooper, but knew he had to do something in the meantime before other law enforcement arrived.

“I finally just grabbed (Timmons’) arm and bent it back over his head, and I told him, I said, ‘man, if you don`t stop, I`ll break it,’” Barney explained.

Another passerby, a 74-year-old woman known only as “Sandra” also stopped to help the men, KSHB reported. She was slightly injured in the struggle.

Eventually, Timmons gave up, and Ryun, with Barney’s help, was able to get handcuffs on him as other officers were showing up.

Ryun later found out that several passers-by had called 911 to report the altercation, and while Ryun was grateful to all of them, he particularly wanted Barney and his finance to be publicly recognized for actually stopping to help him.

“I`m just extremely grateful for them stopping,” the trooper said, according to KDVR.

Timmons was arrested and charged with second-degree assault, attempt to disarm a law enforcement officer, third-degree assault, felony resisting, possession of up to 35 grams of marijuana, and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia.

During a time where police officers have been targeted, attacked and degraded, it’s certainly refreshing to see that some people still respect our law enforcement officers and support what they do — even if that means putting themselves in harm’s way to do so.

Cowboy hears woman scream when thief robs her, proceeds to lasso thief in parking lot

In a Walmart parking lot in Eagle Point, Oregon, cowboy Robert Borba stopped a would-be bike thief with his superior lassoing skillsCowboy Robert Borba was at Walmart picking up some dog food when he heard a woman yell out that someone had stolen her bicycle from a rack.
“’Stop him! Stop him! He stole my bike! He stole my bike!’ And I kind of look around and all of a sudden this guy goes whizzing by me on a bicycle,” Robert said.

Borba, a champion bull rider, took off on his steed to give chase and rounded up the suspect.

“A couple swings and then I threw it at him, just like I would a steer,” Robert said.

“He’s like, ‘What are you doing, man? You got a badge?’ And I’m like, ‘No, I ain’t got a badge,’” he said.

Robert then called 911 and told the operator about the situation. “We got a guy who just stole a bike here at Walmart. I got him roped and tied to a tree,” he said on the call.

“What!?” the operator said.

“I got him roped from a horse and he’s tied to a tree.”

Borba was able to get his lasso around the suspect’s ankle and hold the man until police officer Adams arrived. The 28-year-old hero on horseback saved the day by doing something extremely unordinary.

“I looked up and from the horse there was a rope connected to the ankle of a gentleman on the ground holding onto a tree,” Adams said.
Borba said taking action to stop the perpetrator was just the right thing to do. “If it was my wife or my little girl, I would hope somebody would help her if I wasn’t around,” he said.

An extremely modest cowboy, who wants absolutely nothing in return.

When all was said and done, police said all Robert asked for was his rope back. After receiving his rope, he tipped his hat and then rode off into the sunset like a true cowboy.

GRAPHIC VIDEO: Teen Thug Learns BRUTAL Lesson After Pointing Gun At Cop

Baltimore Detective David Kincaid Jr. shot and killed 18-year-old Curtis Deal on Tuesday, February 7th, during an armed incident where Deal pointed a gun at the officer. Now, the graphic video has been released.
Baltimore, Maryland has quickly become the poster child for liberal run cities gone bad. In what can only be described as shocking and graphic, one teen thug just received a brutal dose of justice that he never expected after pointing his gun at a cop.

According to Daily Mail, the Baltimore Police Department released the extremely graphic body camera footage of 18-year-old Curtis Deal being shot and killed by Detective David Kincaid Jr. after the teen raised his gun and pointed it directly at the officer. The fatal shooting took place on Tuesday, February 7th during a foot chase, which was also captured on the detective’s body camera. Deal was reportedly shot 4 times after pointing his gun at the detective.

Warning: The follow video contains graphic content

According to a report by the Baltimore Sun, there was a significant amount of controversy leading up the 18-year-old’s fatal encounter with police. It seems that when the thugs aren’t creating their own perfect storm, Baltimore government officials are always on hand to push things over the edge.

Deal, who turned 18 in November, had been in court just one day prior to his death. His appearance before District Court judge Nicole Taylor was the result of his third arrest in one month on gun and drug-related charges. Judge Taylor made the decision to let Deal go home on his own recognizance pending his trial on an unsecured $250,000 bond. At the risk of stating the obvious, What was this judge thinking?
Curtis Deal, 18
During Deal’s hearing, the judge acknowledged the prosecutor’s recommendation to keep Deal in custody after 3 consecutive arrests, but still allowed him to walk free, telling the young thug, “You’re not going out at night, you’re not going to get food, you’re not going to meet your girlfriend. You’re in your house.”

The day after Taylor imposed a 1 pm curfew on Deal, he was shot and killed by detective Kincaid during the armed foot chase at approximately 3 pm. Immediately, the finger-pointing began, and oddly enough, very few of the fingers were pointed at the thug who threatened an officer’s life with a gun.

The Mayor of Baltimore, Catherine Pugh, said, “It shows dysfunction, I believe, in our criminal justice system.” She continued, “People who have those many gun charges probably should not be on our streets.” It seems clear that Pugh holds “the system” responsible for the thug’s death.

Kevin Davis, the Baltimore Police Commissioner, released a statement saying that the shooting was justified and that he was proud of Kincaid for his brave work. “I expect police officers to chase people who bail out of cars with guns,” the Police Commissioner said.

Davis was also highly critical of Judge Taylor’s decision not to keep Deal in custody, even though he had two prior arrests within a one-month period. He scolded the judge, saying his department “could very well be planning a police funeral right now.”

Taylor refused to comment through a court spokesman.

This fatal incident gives us an overview of the unfortunate status quo in Baltimore. Many of us vividly remember the Baltimore riots in April of 2015 over the arrest and death of Freddie Gray that resulted in the unjustified prosecution of cops who were doing their jobs. It’s time for people to wake up and see that these aren’t isolated incidents; rather, this is how liberals destroy a society.

One can’t help but wonder how police officers manage to go to work every day in cities like Baltimore and deal with these kinds of life-threatening situations where they have to decide to put down a thug or risk not going home to their own families. The stress of dealing with liberal-created chaos has got to be unimaginable.

Our police aren’t the problem. The entitled thug mentality in which there are no consequences, which has been encouraged by the left, is to blame.

If You Spot A Tennis Ball On The Ground, Do Not Touch It. Police Have A Dire Warning

In Kent, Washington, police have issued a warning to all dog owners. They are encouraging people not to pick up any tennis balls they find lying around. This can be extremely challenging for a dog owner if they let their animal off the leash.

CBS News reported that individuals enjoy making their own fireworks at home although the result can be a missing limb or instant death. Nevertheless, people across Washington state are putting fireworks into tennis balls or pipes. If the “fireworks” don’t explode as planned, they usually leave the tennis ball on the ground like a land mine waiting to rip someone’s leg off.

These duds become active “tennis ball bombs…”

If you see a tennis ball on the ground, do not touch it the Kent Police Department warns.

“A tennis ball bomb is very easy to identify. It is a real tennis ball that has some sort of fuse sticking out of it. The tennis ball could also be completely wrapped in duct tape with a fuse sticking out.” CBS News tells dog owners and individuals
Never touch something that you think could be a tennis ball bomb. Simply keep your dog away and call 911.

“Some of them are very effective and dangerous, and some of them don’t work, but you don’t know,” Jarod Kasner, public information officer for the Kent Police Department in Washington state, told CBS News. “People light them, leave them thinking it’s a dud, but who knows what’s happening on the inside. Then a dog comes and picks it up…”

Although Kent, Washington officials have released this warning to their community, you should heed their advice no matter where you live in the United States. Other parts of the country are also expected to host thousands of these DIY fireworks created out of tennis balls.

These tennis ball bombs are serious and deadly. Back in 2000, a dog in Portland, OR had one of the bombs explode in its mouth. After the devastating accident, the dog was so severely injured it had to be put down.

“If it doesn’t go ‘boom’ some people just walk away from it,” Kasner said. “Unfortunately, dogs pick up everything up in their mouth and bring it to you…”
“It could be smoldering on the inside and when you move it around that’s when it goes off,” Kasner said.

Don’t let this happen to your pet or child. Warn everyone you know about Fourth of July tennis ball bombs…

“If you see a ball or any other household item that looks burnt or has a wick or tape attached to it, don’t touch it, police warn,” CBS reports.
If you see something suspicious, notify the proper authorities. Don’t try to be a hero and pick it up yourself. You might become the next victim instead. Remember these bombs don’t just come in the shape of a tennis ball, it could be a pipe or other container too.

With July Fourth this weekend, play it safe. Don’t let your pet or children near anything that looks suspicious.

“It seems cool, but it’s…reckless,” Kasner said.


Beauty Who Killed 100 ISIS Militants Given SICKENING ‘Welcome’ By Liberals

An ISIS-hunting female sniper returned home after killing more than 100 enemy jihadists, training other female fighters, and even rescuing sex slaves from the clutches of their militant rapists. However, instead of receiving a hero’s welcome, her liberal countrymen gave her the most sickening gift they could possibly bestow on a returning soldier.

Joanna Palani isn’t your average 23-year-old. While attending college, the Danish citizen of Iranian-Kurdish descent gave up her political studies to head to Syria and battle the barbaric Islamic terrorist group. Born as a refugee in a UN camp, Palani felt it her duty to defend the Kurdish people who cannot make it out of the region as well as her fellow citizens from the Islamic terrorism that’s plaguing Europe. Unfortunately, Denmark’s pro-migration, pro-Islam leftists didn’t see it that way.

After Palani, who’s known as the “Angel of Death” to ISIS fighters, returned to Denmark, she was immediately treated as a “terrorist” by the country’s leftists. Mirror reports that when word spread that Palani had killed over 100 ISIS jihadists and freed a group of women and children being held as sex slaves, certain locals made her a pariah. However, the worst of it is that Palani now faces a prison sentence after combatting Islamic terrorism.

Not only is Palani under threat from militants who are making it their mission to make her a sex slave for killing so many Muslims, she is now afraid for her life back in Denmark. Because she traveled to Syria during a travel ban last summer, the Danish government is alleging that she broke anti-terror laws, resulting in her being charged with terrorism-related crimes. After being arrested on December 7, she now faces 6 months in jail for fighting against ISIS, even though jihadists returning from fighting for the terrorist group are given rehabilitation and spared prison, according to Daily Mail.

Further showcasing the liberal country’s backward policies, Palani is currently homeless and treated as a criminal by her fellow citizens. Before losing everything upon her return to Denmark, she was forced into hiding when she discovered that jihadists placed a $1 million “kill or capture” bounty on her head.

Palani faces prison for fighting the terrorist group while returning ISIS fighters are spared jail time and given rehabilitation instead.
“I was willing to give up my life and my freedom to stop Isis advancing, so that everyone in Europe can be safe. This was my choice. But I am seen as a terrorist by my own country,” Palani told the Daily Mail. “I am sorry I had to break the travel ban [imposed on me], but I felt I had no choice. I did not expect to lose almost everything for fighting for the safety of the same country which is now trying to take my freedom.”
Palani explained that the reason she returned to Syria was that, after training a group of female fighters to combat ISIS, she later found out that many of the women in her unit had either died or been injured.

“I live in one of the best countries in the world but I am hungry and homeless and freezing cold in bed at night, even though I am working full time,” she said. “I don’t trust anyone. I don’t want ISIS to threaten European countries or people in the same way they have done in Kurdistan.”
While Palani awaits her court hearing, she is forced to move to a new location every 3 days. Incredibly, the abuse she has faced for defending her native people and her Danish countrymen hasn’t dampened her spirit.


“The Danish government is trying to set an example of me in court so they can say publicly that I am just the same as ISIS, but I am not a criminal,” she said. “I would take ten years in jail with pride to save people but I wouldn’t accept one day in jail for being a danger to Denmark. I don’t understand why they [the Danish intelligence service] would view me as a threat when I was fighting for Europe and for females everywhere.”
Palani had already spent 3 weeks in prison before a judge released her on December 23. Of course, she might have been safer in jail as she quickly learned of the bounty placed on her head.

Palani has done more than any leftist who claims to stand for feminism, equality, and even refugees. Yet, she is looked at by those same liberal activists as a terrorist because their devotion to protecting Islam comes first. Muslims may return to the protection of their host country after beheading and raping innocent civilians in the Middle East, but Palani returns as a criminal.

K9 Won’t Stop Kissing His Partner During Official Photo Shoot, Then Finally Does A Serious One

Conservation Officer Levi Knach and Kenobi, his faithful K-9, recently sat to pose for an official photo shoot – but, instead of being professional, the doggie took it as a perfect opportunity for some serious cuddles. Now the pictures of a pooch kissing his partner are going viral. And we can’t really blame officer Knach for breaking into a smile – it would be impossible to have a poker face when facing snuggles like these. You can tell it’s true love…
The officer and his dog are members of Indiana’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR) law enforcement agency. When Kenobi is not attacking Knach with his kisses, together they are going after the bad guys and are saving the day.
“[Officer Knach] and Kenobi constantly train for the unfortunate situations of locating missing persons, locating evidence from criminal activity, and detecting illegally taken wildlife,” DNR Corporal Rodney Clear told The Dodo.
At the end of the day, the two did manage to get a serious shot. However, now we know the truth behind it.

14 Freeloaders ARRESTED for $16 MILLION in Welfare Fraud, Then Everyone Saw Their Names And Were SHOCKED!

Welfare fraud is a bigger problem than want you to believe.

Food Stamp benefits costed $74.1 billion in 2014 and supplied roughly 46.5 million Americans with benefits, which comes out to an average of $125.35 for each person per month in food assistance. Even a fraud rate of under 5% amounts to billions in wasted funds. The most popular method of food stamp fraud isn’t fraudulently claiming benefits, it’s recipients trading in their cards for a fraction of their face value for cash.

Luckily, the government has actually made some wise steps in counteracting that kind of fraud. Back in April, the USDA passed a rule that allows states the option to require SNAP recipients to make contact with the state when there have been an excessive number of requests for EBT card replacements in a year. Requesting excessive replacement cards can indicate that a client is exchanging SNAP cards for cash or other prohibited items.

On the other hand, it doesn’t take many people to do millions of dollars worth of damage when the system is abused in a major manner. In a recent story out of Baltimore, fourteen people were arrested in raids that related to a total of $16 million in food stamp fraud.

CPD officers cleared of racial profiling allegations made by U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush

Two Chicago Police officers have been cleared of wrongdoing after U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush claimed he had been racially profiled during a traffic stop last summer, according to a police spokesman.

Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Thursday that after a review by the department’s Bureau of Internal Affairs, the two Wentworth District officers had probable cause to make the stop

Rush was driving his Lexus RX450h shortly before 3 p.m. on Aug. 4 in the 4700 block of South King Drive when he was pulled over by the officers who were on the lookout for high-end vehicles due to a series of thefts on the South Side.

A police dispatcher notified the officers that the license plate on Rush’s vehicle was registered to a different vehicle.

A video obtained by FOX 32 News through a Freedom of Information Act request, shows that the officers remained calm throughout the traffic stop though Rush became agitated about the reasons he was pulled over.

The congressman filed a complaint against the officers within an hour of the stop, claiming he was pulled over because of the color of his skin.

Guglielmi said the video footage obtained from one of the officers body camera’s demonstrated the officers acted professionally.

“CPD holds itself to the highest level of integrity and professional standards. “The video footage from this traffic stop provides a firsthand look into the professional actions of Chicago police officers that occur throughout the city every day,” Guglielmi said. “It also displays the value of body-worn camera technology that allows us to ensure investigations are guided by the facts, provide officers due process, and protect the civil rights of every Chicagoan. When officers are accused of misconduct, they are held accountable for their actions but when officers demonstrate professionalism and respect, we stand behind their actions.”

In the approximately 7 1/2-minute video, Rush says the SUV is a “government leased vehicle.”

hile Rush has a congressional plate with the number “1”, there is another vanity “1” plate that belongs to a man on the Near North Side, perhaps explaining the confusion.

According to the video, one of the officers tells Rush that the plates on his Lexus didn’t match his vehicle but instead were registered to a Cadillac.

Guglielmi told the Tribune he couldn’t say whether the dispatcher mixed up the plates, leading the officer’s to believe Rush’s vehicle had the wrong plates displayed.

During the stop, the female officer was at all times polite.

FOX 32: What do you think the police officers did wrong?

“Well, I think that their biases and their prejudices came into play,” Rush said. “I just want them to be on point, to know that every car that looks good in the black community, is driving on 47th street or any other street is not driving a criminal,” Rush said.

Congressman Rush says this incident should serve as a bigger message to police about racial profiling.

“This is an action that leads to the misunderstanding, the lack of respect and the lack of belief and faith in the Chicago Police Department,” Rush said.
