Black Power

Don't care where you come from As long as you're a black man You're an African – Peter Tosh

For those of you courageous enough to have experienced the other video Picnic in Africa you will have no doubt been desensitized to the following little gem. And guess what, yeah, you guessed right – the perpetrator is black!

Let's all give a VERY warm welcome to our new inductees, the lovely 30-year-old Michelle Henry, her 22-year-old boyfriend David Privette and their friends from the Department of Social Services.

Everyone in this story hails from Middleborough, Massachusetts. Along for the ride are Michelle Henry's 7-year-old son and his 3-year-old half-sister.

According to David Privette's great-aunt, David Privette aspires to be a police officer or fireman and Michelle is desperately seeking the 'Miss Obese White Trash America' crown. Why David Privette thinks he could get onto any police force with a prison record for crack cocaine possession and assaulting a police officer is anyone's guess.

Now, while these are very brave aspirations, the bravest of the lot is the 7 year old boy who, eventually told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth about the horrible abuse inflicted upon him by David Privette while Michelle Henry just stood around and watched.

Granted, the 7-year-old tried to hide the truth at first, saying he fell onto the handlebars of his bike and fell on the ice - but give the kid a break, he just "didn't want another whoopin'."

The Department of Social Services is now admitting that they dropped the ball on this case because they had been called three times by the nurse about possible abuse in Michelle Henry and David Privette's household, and had visited the Michelle Henry and David Privette household four times in three months - yet hadn't taken the children out of their situation.

No, the Department of Social Services just told Michelle Henry and David Privette to "cut back on the corporal punishment".

That wasn't the first time the Department of Social Services had turned their attention on Michelle Henry.

Back in 2002, they investigated her for neglect, before David Privette had even come into the picture, but nothing ever became of those investigations. Maybe the boy was a quick healer.

David Privette has finally inflicted some injuries that won't heal quickly. They might not heal at all.

You see, it wasn't enough for David Privette to urinate on this child's face or beat the kid with a belt until the boy was bloody - all in front of his mother who did nothing but sit on her ass. No...that just didn't satisfy his sadistic nature.

David Privette thought "What could I do to make this kid remember me for the rest of his life?"
Then it came to him...probably like this, "I know, I'll put 1 inch burns from my cigarette on his penis and butt. So that every time he takes a piss and looks at his disfigured flesh he'll remember me pissing on his head!"

And so that's what David Privette did.

The child still went to school, with his mother ordering him not to tell anyone about what had happened. For a while, he obeyed...but then locked himself into a bathroom stall and cried until someone came to get him.

Why would the child lock himself in the stall, crying, not wanting to ever come out? I'm with you kid. I would cry every time I went to the bathroom.

Authorities are still looking into possible abuse of the 3-year-old little girl. I don't think we want to know.

Still if it helps to better the careers of these shining examples of humanity then, by all means.

David Privette's torturous talents were probably used on the little girl as well.

David Privette was charged with two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery on a child. Two days later, David Privette was also charged with indecent assault and battery and mayhem.

Michelle Henry has been charged with reckless endangerment and assault and battery on a child causing serious bodily injury.

Good luck with your job search in prison Michelle and David! You're at the top of my list!
