Soon to Be a Major Court Appearance

Note to aspiring directors: If you’re going to have a kid cussing in a viral video, make sure you’re the parent…

A city man was arrested after police said he coached his 8-year-old neighbor to swear and make racial slurs for a YouTube video.

Josh Eastman, 24, of Pearl Harbor Street, was charged Tuesday afternoon with impairing the morals of a child. He was released after posting $2,500 bond…

Police said Eastman admitted making and posting the video, but claimed his lawyer told him it was all right to do so.

Reached at his home Wednesday, Eastman denied that the things he had the boy say were disgusting. “It was fun things, funny,” he said.

No, sir, funny is a cute kitty chasing her linoleum reflection. Or, if not funny, it’s certainly safer.

@Capt Howdy: Well, there are a lot of “Swearing Kid” videos on YouTube. And even if I found the one in question, I’m really not comfy posting it…

All 8 year old shout obscenities and give each other the finger and shit all day long. Has the prosecutor every been 8?

@FlyingChainSaw: And if you’re the 8-year-old, or the 8-year-old’s parent or legal guardian, I have absolutely no problem with it.

As presented, however, I’m calling it child abuse.

I googled. I wish I had not. some ugly shit.

feel like I need to take a shower now.

@nojo: Diddling the neighbor kid is child abuse. Taking inappropriate pictures of the neighbor kid – most likely child abuse. Teaching the neighbor kid how to cuss, I don’t think so…too slippery slopey there. Pretty direct line to complaints to authorities when the neighbor kid learns from someone else, whether it be the adult neighbor – things such as, there is no Santa or the Tooth Fairy, evolution, how babies are made, the sun rises in the east, or anything else that some parent freaks out about their child learning because it “impairs the morals” of their child. Slippery slope my friend.

Besides, there’s enough real cases of child abuse and neglect that go unaddressed in this country…

@SanFranLefty: I basically agree, but would make an exception for exposing the neighbor kid to Fox News.

@SanFranLefty: ADDENDUM: The legal hook, if any, on getting the abuse charge through will be on the grounds that the neighbor videotaped it and put it on YouTube with the kid’s name for the whole world to see. That’s arguably exploitation of a minor. Then again, are we charging the guy who put up the video of his nephew post-trip-to-dentist in the back seat of the car?

@Walking Still: Well yes of course. :)

@SanFranLefty: Fucking tribal cops are closing a child abuse investigation in a case I have despite having victim and witness statements because the (alleged) offender won’t talk to the officer.

@SanFranLefty: exploitation of a minor

Better phrasing. I’ll take it.

@nojo: Presuming, of course, there’s nothing on the books for “Creepy Neighbor Posts Video of My Eight-Year-Old Kid Swearing Without Me Knowing About It.”

@redmanlaw: That is the most absurd reason ever. Dude obvs. has the right not to talk to the cops, but then that just means that cops have to do their fucking job and find corroborating evidence (oh, I don’t know, maybe victim and witness statements), not throw up their hands and say “Oh gee I guess we can’t do anything.”


@FlyingChainSaw: Maybe it is something worth the parents punching the guy in the face for but a formal arrest. Maybe get a cop to punch him but making him unemployable for life? You might as well just blow his brains out because he is going to die frozen to a sidewalk. By the way, went Mac for a replacement laptop. Microcenter was dumping the 17″ MacBook Pros with 2.8Ghz processor. Smooth and works very well with VMWare.

@SanFranLefty: We’re going over the cop’s head to the captain.

Fuck tha po-lice.

Goddamn idiot.

8 year old don’t need help to learn how to swear.

Hey, just got back from Kansas City. Did I miss anything?

just saw Dan Savage with the best line so far on Kengate

“in the gay community this is on par with Ricky Martin coming out. wake me with Levi Johnston comes out”

@Capt Howdy:

Wake ME when Duane “The Rock” Johnson comes out.

Or Jason Scott Lee, the little-black-dress of my masturbation fantasies.


Duane “the Rock” Johnson came out. In my mind. Over and over again.

@Tommmcatt Cannot Be Arsed To Think About Sharon Angle:
you are in LA yes
when I was there my friends and I used to have brunch in a place in Montrose which is north of Burbank called La Cabinita. I have seen him there on sunday mornings maybe three times. I think he must live up there.

that is Jason Scott Lee

dont say I never did nothin for ya

We can never have too many funny kitten videos.

@Capt Howdy:

Better to dream than the inevitable restraining order I would get, don’t you think?

@Tommmcatt Cannot Be Arsed To Think About Sharon Angle:
he seems friendly enough. in any case if you are close enough you should try LaCabinita. its awsum.

@Capt Howdy: @Tommmcatt Cannot Be Arsed To Think About Sharon Angle: I’m sorry, but even with such strong demand, we’re not ready yet to launch Stinque Stalquer.

@nojo: The Black Power Ranger got busted for DWI last year and another Power Ranger show actor was sentenced to death for killing a couple by tying them to the anchor of their boat and tossing them into the ocean.,2933,514255,00.html

@nojo: Huh. Kinda funny that there was so much homophobia on the set, yet they were willing to gender swap the yellow ranger.

@JNOVjr: Yellow Power Ranger actress Thuy Trang, a Vietnamese refugee, died in a car crash in 2001 per wikipedia.

And then Colbert opens his show with a Power Ranger riff. Do not let them catch you alone.

Awwww. Cute kitty. How do we know it wasn’t chasing a cockroach? I do appreciate the costume change, although I have no idea WTF that thing is around it’s poor widdle neck. A bandanna? I only know of one spectacular animal that could pull off the bandanna with aplomb.
