In what may be the biggest “No, Duh” moment of the month, it was proven yet again that the right-wing “Christians” who are the most rabid against an issue are the ones that are secretly doing it the most.
An Ohio man and his father were arrested after it was discovered they were keeping a 13-year old girl captive, in chains, in their basement for nearly an entire year.
But wait, the best part is next.
Before he was apprehended by police, Esten Ciboro, the younger of the pair, spent his time on Facebook warning people of the dangers that transgender people pose to children in Target department store bathrooms. Should I also mention he is a Donald Trump supporter or was that unnecessarily obvious?
Here is a screenshot from his Facebook page.
The Toledo Blade carried a portion of the report:
Timothy Ciboro, 53, and his son, Esten Ciboro, 27, were charged Thursday with kidnapping and child endangerment.
Authorities continue investigating after a 13-year-old girl reported she was detained for extended periods in a North Toledo basement by her stepfather and his adult son. Late Wednesday, she escaped 825 Noble St. with a spare key.
As police arrived, they found the suspects, two children, and their two pets in a van. The family appeared to be leaving the home, police said. A search of the house found large handcuffs or leg irons in the basement.
Officers arrested Timothy Ciboro, 53, and Esten Ciboro, 27, on kidnapping and child endangerment charges. They were being held in the Lucas County jail, each on $500,000 bonds.
It is not yet clear when she was first shackled in the basement. She told police she was restrained at the ankle for multiple periods, once as long as a year, she ate spoiled food scraps and had to defecate in a bucket containing ammonia, court documents said.
If Republican child predators do this, then you have to wonder … what exactly do they think transgender people do to children in a department store bathroom that’s worse?
The girl was a runaway from what seemed to be a bad home. Her mother was identified as Stafonda Hawkins, who was a fugitive last year and wanted for parole violations. Hawkins is a previously convicted felon with numerous missed court appearances as well.
Ciboro was actually called by a woman who found the girl less than 2 miles from where she was being held captive. The woman, Karen Loudermill, called because the girl said that if her “stepfather” found out she was missing, she’d be in a lot of trouble. Ciboro said “I’ll call you back” and hung up the phone, then attempted to flee when he was arrested after the girl told Loudermill about her captivity in the basement.
The girl had managed to steal away an unattended key that she used to escape when Ciboros left to go jogging the previous night.
As with many cases when it comes to Republicans, they are projecting their own lives onto other people. Anti-gay Republicans are always outed as gay. Now being anti-trans is the way to tell who is a child predator. They sure do make it easy.
