Don't ALL people like that aspire to be porn stars?
[quote]they were tipped off to this relationship by the former girlfriend of the daughter.
Well isn't she a busy little bee.
They claim they weren't sure if he, or another man involved with her mother, was the father.
The bitch looks exactly like him.
Always good to see some Southern Connecticut representation for this type of shit!
Wow, see how legalizing gay marriage is affecting regular marriage? See??!!! Not.
Is it bad that I really don't give a shit about this if they were consenting adults?
Well, no, R6. In the sense that it's hardly uncommon.
I agree with R6, but they should have taken every possible precaution against pregnancy and they obviously didn't. Their child will end up paying for their indiscretion.
While I find the concept of incest to be utterly repugnant, I also don't think it should be a "crime" per se (unless of course the child partaking in it is underage). These people need loads and loads of THERAPY, not jail time.
Why does the dad take fashion cues from Zippy the Pinhead?
Fucked up. Hoity toity Connecticut, not Arkansas either. Grody to the max!!
Please, dont let them be wh....
Oh, who are we kidding. I dont even need to click the link to know that they are white.
I'm not surprised this was in Bethel, I'm sure I could tell you the exact neighborhood. People who are not familiar with CT are always surprised to hear this, but there are parts of this state that are so white trash you would think you were in Alabama if it weren't for the accents. The CT you see on TV and in movies (Greenwich, Westport etc.) is only a relatively small percentage of the state. We have more than our share of absolute garbage people, just like anywhere else.
Too bad her body didn't shut that whole thing down.

I haven't heard that expression (grody to the max) in a long time..r20. hahahah
WTF are the boils on his forehead!
more and more proud to be an Amer'cun.
Connecticut? Damn, I would have thought this would have been in a Southern State
Florida, you need to catch up. Lately they have been slipping in the craziest state contest
Abuse. Long term abuse.
r28, I have to agree. Must have started when she was very young.
The father looks just like Daffyd "I'm the only gay in the village" Thomas from Little Britain.
you people are so judgemental, I say live and let live.
All I can focus on is his hair.
He probably started abusing her when she was a child.
"Florida, you need to catch up. Lately they have been slipping in the craziest state contest"
You must not have read about the mother/daughter porn duo from Tampa!
Joe Lieberman and now THIS. I have GOT to move out of this State. How's West Virginia?
I'm just kind of surprised that sex between consenting adults is illegal. Sure, the idea of incest is repugnant, but why is it illegal? Is it because their children have an increased risk of congenital disorders? People with all kinds of inheritable disorders have kids all the time. Seems like that should be illegal too.
Because incest is a betrayal of trust, and this 'father' has likely conditioned her to accept a sexual relationship with her.
She may not even think its wrong due to her conditioning. Pedophiles groom their victims over a period of time.
"Pedophiles groom their victims over a period of time."
Oh, puhlease. She's not a kid, she's an adult. She CHOSE to sleep with her dad.
Right, I'm sure he waited until the day she turned 18 to express a sexual interest in her, and not a moment before.
"Right, I'm sure he waited until the day she turned 18 to express a sexual interest in her, and not a moment before."
Why does it matter? She's an adult now. She can choose what she wants.
Gays are such hypocrites.
Last line in the article:
"I have two kids myself, so that's very unsettling," said Rebecca Chamberlain of Bethel.
What in the holy hell does that have to do with anything?
Funny how mostly women "choose" to sleep with their fathers. Mother/son incest seems to be much rarer.
Of course she's an adult NOW, but that has nothing to do with whether or not this began as an abusive situation. I find it very difficult to believe that this began only once she was of legal age, and that he didn't take advantage of his parental authority over her. However, unless there is actual evidence that it began when she was underage, I'm not sure they should be charged with a crime.
To those posters who can't understand why incest is against the law--there are certain circumstances in which society is justified in stepping into people's sex lives and saying, "Sorry, we can't let you do this." There is strong empirical evidence--biological, sociological, and psychological--that incest causes serious damage to the people involved (especially to the inbred offspring they produce) and for society as a whole (since it leads to a pattern of abusive and coercive sexual and emotional exploitation that can go on for generations and affect anyone who the incestuous individuals might decide to work their unhealthy sexual behaviors on.) So please don't draw any false equivalencies between being gay and incestuous.
"There is strong empirical evidence--biological, sociological, and psychological--that incest causes serious damage to the people involved"
Alcohol also causes a shitload of damage. But it's legal.
Adults should be allowed to make bad choices.
According to the article, this (for want of a better word) relationship began when the daughter was underage. And her cousins were involved in selling and distributing the daddy-daughter porn.
The whole street that this took place on- Nashville Road, is a beacon for white trash/redneck/incestuous behavior. There was one person Ikey V. who spawned an entire generation of incestuous children who lived on this street. There was another family who were so inbred that they all had frog eyes (shades of Lovecraft!)
I like how OP linked to the story thru a Kansas City TV station to disguise the fact that these inbreeders are from the oh so superior Northeast.
[quote]Alcohol also causes a shitload of damage. But it's legal.
Alcohol is legal as long as the drinker hurts no one but himself. In general, R45, I agree with you. Adults should be allowed to make their own poor choices. I'd make all recreational drugs legal and taxed, with the same restrictions as alcohol (driving, etc.). Certainly the prohibition of drugs has been as ineffective as the prohibition oh alcohol, contributing to crime and raising no revenue for the government.
Incest, however, is another matter, if reproduction is possible. Should it be a crime? I honestly don't know.
This is very disgusting and lowlife.
Is it bad that I think that garbage like this should be put to death?
Agree R42. Also, this whole ordeal smacks of mental illness.
[quote]Funny how mostly women "choose" to sleep with their fathers. Mother/son incest seems to be much rarer.
Interesting choice of words there, blaming the victim, who is of course female. Mother/son incest is rare because women rarely commit sex crimes in general. There are some rare exceptions, but victimizing and exploiting others for sexual gratification is almost exclusively the domain of men.
[r53], I agree with you. That's why I put "choose" in parenthesis. I don't think the vast majority of incest daughters "choose" but rather are brutalized and manipulated by an adult male from very early on.
"Interesting choice of words there, blaming the victim, who is of course female"
Uh, adults who choose to have sex with other adults aren't victims.
I guess you think women are too dumb to know their own minds.
r55 I'll try again because it's Christmas time: The incests daughters are not adults when it starts.
I suppose you think they stop being victims as soon as they turn 18 and don't immediately stop Daddy, because they are suddenly strong and healthy mature adults on totally equal footing now. I also suppose you are too dumb to live.
Did anybody else read "The Kiss" by Kathryn Harrison? She wrote in a very detached, aloof manner about how she got involved with her father when she was twenty years old. She came from a well to do background and he was a minister.
"I also suppose you are too dumb to live"
You are the one who is too dumb to live. Consenting adults should be able to do what they want. You sound like you're a member of the religious right.
R58, could we at least note that the two people who are the focus of this thread are the ones who are too dumb to live, even if they are not too dumb to propagate. No child - NO CHILD - is going to thrive coming out of that environment and history.
You keep on pretending only the religious right could potentially have a problem with daddy/daughter porn, that really helps with gay rights!
Jesus, I live in Bethel!
Yet if this were father-son incest, 50% of DL would be all "That's hot!"
