Mother arrested after taking baby that sparked Amber Alert, family speaks out

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK  –  A three-month-old baby is safe and mother in custody after an alleged kidnapping that sparked an Amber Alert.

It started around 2:30 Thursday morning at an apartment complex near South Santa Fe and Southeast 44th.

Police say the mother, 20-year-old Midaysia Highwalker, took the baby, Leyla Rivera, after an altercation with the baby’s father.

People nearby say they often hear arguing.

“We hear them argue all the time, mainly just over dumb, stupid stuff,” neighbor Matthew Seal said.

“I have from time to time heard a little bit of screaming and yelling,” Jamie Jack, family member of a neighbor, said.

Police say the situation then escalated.

“The female, mother of the child, took the baby, indicated that she might harm herself and the baby,” MSgt. Gary Knight with Oklahoma City Police said.

According to the arrest warrant for Highwalker, the baby’s father called his mother saying he needed help removing the baby from the apartment.  He said Highwalker had people over at the residence, and Midaysia was smoking marijuana around the child.  The warrant goes on to say, “Midaysia forcefully took the child from [the father], grabbing the small infant by her head.  Midaysia proceeded to strike [the father’s] head repeatedly and threw various items at him.  Midaysia grabbed a black carjack from the front of the residence and forcefully struck [the father] in the back of his head, causing injury.”

The warrant says Midaysia said she was going to kill the baby’s father and his mother and left the residence with the baby.

That sparked an Amber Alert Thursday morning.

However, Highwalker’s sister, who did not want her name disclosed, says that’s unlike her.
“She might’ve said something to get him away from her, but she wouldn’t make threats and she wouldn’t go through with her threats,” she said.

Police searched for Highwalker and the baby.  Both were found safe at a friend’s home in Midwest City.

“The mother’s in custody, we’ll interview her and see what came of the domestic,” Knight said.

According to Highwalker’s sister and cousin, there’s more to the story.

“Her boyfriend, he’s been putting his hands on her a long time now, and I feel like she did it just to get away from him, and his mom threatens her, tries to fight her, and they used the baby against her and so she just ran to get away,” her sister said.

“My cousin is a really good mom, and she don’t deserve to be locked up.  Her baby daddy has been abusive their whole relationship,” Precious Hopgood, Highwalker’s cousin said.

Highwalker has been booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on complaints of domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, child neglect, domestic abuse in the presence of a minor, threatening to perform an act of violence, embezzlement and destroying property.

Woman and Boyfriend molested her Children.

Two arrested in OK for Child Molesting and enabling it

Perkins, OK  –  A woman from Perkins and her ex-boyfriend were arrested after the woman turned in the man for molesting her children, and law enforcement learned she enabled the sexual abuse.

Peggy Gates and Baldwin Lee Irving were booked into the county jail.  Irving was charged with child sexual abuse and conspiracy to commit a felony and Gates was charged with enabling child sexual abuse and conspiracy to commit a felony.

Perkins Officer Daryn Zanfardino and Perkins Deputy Chief Kyle Howard worked the case.

Gates reported the abuse because she was trying to get a protective order against Irving, the affidavit said.

“I asked why she is disclosing now instead of when the prior incidents occurred.  She stated that she was forced to participate because Baldwin Irving threatened to beat her,” Howard said.  “She stated that she and Baldwin had been arguing recently and she wanted to notify what was happening.”

Howard told Zanfardino he believed it was possible Gates was involved with the abuse, and the recent fight may have “fractured the relationship.”

The probable cause affidavit said Gates called police July 10, to have Irving removed from the home, but didn’t disclose abuse at that time.  For this reason, Zanfardino requested a search warrant instead of consent to search the phone.

The children were interviewed at the Ray of Hope Advocacy Center in Bartlesville.  One of the children became disconnected when the autonomy chart was used to describe good or bad touches.

The child told the interviewer Irving’s phone had been factory reset, and that they had to bring Gates the phone.  The other child disclosed sexual abuse by Irving and stated that Irving likes to be naked.  The child also said Irving touched them while they were in the shower.

According to the affidavit, Gates admitted to touching the two children to “satisfy Baldwin.”

Howard made a scenario with Gates and told her to correct him if he was wrong.  He said she allowed her abusive ex-boyfriend back into the picture and learned of his sexual desires.  She saw it as a problem but also wanted to be loved and so her judgement was clouded by love.

“Peggy Gates said that I was spot on,” Howard alleged.

Officers told Gates they knew she reset Irving’s phone, and she allegedly said it was to protect him.

“I asked what would be found on the phone and said a text from Baldwin asking if we should stop doing what we have been doing and her replying no,” Howard alleged.

Payne County Investigator Rockford Brown assisted in the arrest of Irving and interviewed him.

The affidavit said Irving blamed the sexual abuse on Gates offering the children to him.  He admitted to touching one child twice over the clothes while they were asleep, because Gates wanted him to do it.

When Gates was interviewed, she said Irving made untrue statements about her, and she was the one that was forced by Irving.

Both Gates and Irving appeared in court Wednesday and bond was set at $75,000 for Gates and $100,000 for Irving.  Gates will return to court Aug. 4 but Irving does not have a known upcoming court date.

Man who allegedly fatally shot
10-year-old New York boy is charged
with murder

QUEENS COUNTY, NY  –  Jovan Young, 29, who authorities say fatally shot 10-year-old Justin Wallace, has been charged with murder, according to a news release from the Queens District Attorney’s Office.

Young was arraigned on Wednesday before Queens Criminal Court Judge Toko Serita, according to the news release.  He was charged with murder in the second degree, attempted murder in the second degree, assault in the first degree and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.

“There isn’t a parent alive who doesn’t mourn this family’s loss, another tragic result from gun violence,” said District Attorney Melinda Katz in the statement.  “The defendant allegedly fired repeatedly into an occupied house, is now in custody and faces justice in our Courts.”

Young’s next court date is set for June 14, and if he’s convicted, he faces up to 25 years to life in prison, according to the release.

According to the charges, video surveillance from the evening of Saturday, June 5 allegedly shows Young approach the home Wallace was in and fire multiple shots into the residence, Katz said.  Wallace’s 29-year-old uncle was also hit twice, once in the neck and hand, according to the release.

Young also suffered a gunshot wound to his shoulder and was brought to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in stable condition, the NYPD said.

Beth Unger from the LAS confirmed she represents Young but had no comment.

OneMillionMoms Need Our Help Filling Petition To Lego

Your Child Needs You To Be A Good Parent BEFORE It Is Too Late!

Now Lego is Loud and Proud!

Lego recently announced its launch of a rainbow-colored building block set available June 1 – just in time for Gay Pride Month.

Lego has created its first LGBTQ toy that glorifies gender inclusivity and ignores one’s biological sex.  This 346-piece set includes a rainbow-colored background and minifigures of each color.  There is even a purple drag queen figure, according to Matthew Ashton, the designer of the set.

“We’re super excited to reveal our new set – Lego: Everyone Is Awesome!” the company tweeted Thursday.  “Because we celebrate every Lego builder.”

“The set features a rainbow wall, plus black and brown, and the colors of the transgender flag: sky blue, white, and pink,” Fox Business reported.  “The rainbow wall has 11 accompanying figures with a corresponding color.”

With the pro-LGBTQ toy being recommended for ages 18+, many critics are concerned about the actual contents inside the new product’s box and its appropriateness for minors, but Ashton insists that it is for all.

“I wanted to create a simple little set with a powerful message of love, inclusivity, and acceptance … so here it is!  #lego love to you all!” tweeted Ashton, who is also a Lego vice president of design.

Aston claims the set advocates tolerance but is also persistent that Lego be on board to build the LGBTQ agenda.

“That’s what’s been so important to me in getting this set out with a message that we can be really proud of,” he added.  It’s apparent that even toy manufacturers are attempting to indoctrinate children by exposing them to the LGBTQ lifestyle.  Why can’t Lego let kids be kids instead of glamorizing a sinful lifestyle?

OneMillionMoms, I believe you already know the answer to that!!!!   Parents, I am Robert StrongBow, and I have one very important thing to say:

IT IS WRONG TO IMPLANT INDIFFERENCE IN A CHILD’S HEART

Lego is confusing our innocent children by attempting to normalize this lifestyle choice, which is not only irresponsible but also dangerous to the well-being of our children.  Toy manufacturers need to remain neutral and should avoid aiming to please a small percentage of customers while pushing away conservative customers.

It is crystal clear that Lego is attempting to desensitize our youth, so One Million Moms believes it’s urgent to warn parents of the company’s agenda.  One News Now covered this story recently.  We have included the article here for additional information.  One News Now is a division of American Family Association, the parent organization of One Million Moms.

We must remain diligent and stand up for biblical values and truth.  Scripture says multiple times that homosexuality is wrong, and God will not tolerate this sinful nature.

Sign our petition urging Lego to stop the release of its “Everyone is Awesome” rainbow LGBTQ building set immediately.

TV program for preschoolers, but parents should be aware of the not-so-subtle and very pro-LGBTQ agenda included in the song’s video.

‘Blue’s Clues & You!’ Displays
LGBTQ Pride

“ABC Song with Blue,” from Nickelodeon’s Blue’s Clues & You!  TV program for preschoolers, is an alphabet song for kids that is available on the show’s official YouTube channel.  It sounds innocent enough, but parents should be aware of the not-so-subtle and very pro-LGBTQ agenda included in the song’s video.  Every time the letter “P” is displayed, it is illustrated with a rainbow design in the shape of the letter.

Here are some of the lyrics and images heard and seen in the video:

  • “P is full of pride!”
  • Images of 9 LGBTQ flags are displayed alongside the letter “P.”
  • “The alphabet helps me be me.”

It is apparent that this network continues to indoctrinate children by exposing them to the LGBTQ lifestyle and presenting it as normal.

With such a liberal push in children’s educational entertainment, it is obvious where Nickelodeon stands.  Parents who are not already aware of the network’s agenda, please be forewarned now.

This pride-laced ABC song makes it clear that Nickelodeon has an LGBTQ agenda that it is forcing on really young audiences.

TAKE ACTION

Sign the Nickelodeon pledge stating you and your family will no longer support Nickelodeon nor watch ‘Blue’s Clues & You!’ as long as it veers away from family-friendly entertainment. And please share this with your friends and family.
