Our mission: • To aid in the apprehension of existing criminals. • To deter future criminals. • To help create an aware public, so they can avoid becoming victims of criminal activity. • To give something back to the community by donating proceeds to support local causes.
Why we do it: Prior to making the final decision to go to print with Watchdog Weekly, we did a little market research – which means, we talked to our friends and family and neighbors, and a fair amount of strangers about how they felt about it. Now, if there is one thing we can say about our friends and family, it’s that they are a hearty collection of people from all walks of life and are nothing if not honest with us. Their opinions have certainly been mixed, ranging from, “Hell Yeah!” to “What are you blabbering about?”. The fact is that what we’ve set out to do might be considered controversial to some, but for us, the benefits to our families’ safety and our community far outweigh the negatives. Many of us have important people in our lives (children, parents, brothers, sisters, other family and friends) who live, socialize, go to school, and work in this community every day . Making them aware of potential dangers that exist here is one way that we can help to protect the people we love the most. Do you really know who is delivering your pizza, or helping you take your groceries to your car, or living and working next door to you? Maybe you should. Having said that, we need to be very clear that the information included herein must never be used to harm or harass the people we depict in the Watchdog Weekly publication. It’s important to remember that absolutely everyone is entitled to the presumption of innocence unless and until that individual is proven guilty. You should not rely on information contained in this publication without first verifying it directly with the appropriate law enforcement agencies.
Buy and Donate Part of our mission in creating the Watchdog Weekly publication was to give something back to the communities we serve. Between school cutbacks, unemployment increases, and a struggling economy, our community is suffering. Therefore, for every issue of Watchdog Weekly purchased, some of the proceeds will go to support those affected by these issues. You can help us by telling us where the money should go. You can either email suggestions to email@example.com or join the discussion on Facebook!

Watchdog Weekly makes no claims as to the likelihood that any of these offenders will commit another sex-related or violent crime. However, the U.S. Department of Justice conducted a study in 1994 regarding recidivism (repeat offense) rates for sex offenders once released from prison, and stated the following findings: • Compared to non-sex offender felons, a convicted sex offender was 4 times more likely to be rearrested for a sex crime. • Within 3 years following their release from prison in 1994, 5.3% (approximately 1 in 20) of released sex offenders were rearrested for a sex crime. However, remember that these are only those who have been arrested and charged with another sex crime. • One study (Prentky, Lee, Knight and Cerce (1997)) estimates that true sexual re-offense rates are underestimated by 30-40%, as many offenses are either not reported to police or cleared by arrest. All information on sex and/or violent offenders has been deemed public information, and was obtained directly from the Indiana Sheriffs’ Sex and Violent Offender Registry. Watchdog Weekly makes no guarantee as to the accuracy of the information. Those pictured are not all child predators. Information provided in Watchdog Weekly must not be used to harass, disparage, or otherwise discriminate against those depicted. Watchdog Weekly does not make any claims as to whether or not those pictured are currently dangerous or currently engaging in any illegal activities, whatsoever.

International Abductions Call 1-800-THE-LOST® (1-800-843-5678) or report online at www.MissingKids.com
As of April 17, 2010
Family Abductions In December 2009, the world was glued to the media outlets while we watched David Goldman finally reunite with his son Sean Goldman - 5 ½ years after Sean’s Brazilian born mother (and David’s wife) took their son to Brazil on vacation, and never returned. Their story brought “family abduction” to the forefront. For over 5 years, David battled the Brazilian courts, his ex-wife and family, and fought not to surrender to the financial and emotional toll. There is so much more to their story than just the above, but David was lucky in the respect that he actually knew where his son was. Many children abducted by a parent are not easy to find, IF they are ever found. By far the most common kind of child abduction is parental child abduction and often occurs when the parents separate or begin divorce proceedings. The biggest motive for family abduction is revenge against another parent, not the child’s safety. Although parental child abduction is a federal crime that happens to over 203,000 families a year, nearly 70% of law enforcement agencies do not even have a written policy on how to respond to a family abduction. In most family abduction cases, victims often remain within the United States, however, circumstances are changing due to a growing number of intercontinental (or inter-cultural) marriages. This provides the abducting parent easier access to resources in their native or cultural countries – thus making it easier to “hide” the children that they have abducted. The emotional, psychological, and physical impact on children is often so significant that family abduction is considered a form of child endangerment. Left-behind parents experience a wide range of emotions including betrayal, loss, anger, and depression. In international cases, they often face unfamiliar legal, cultural, and linguistic barriers that compound these emotions.

All information on sex and/or violent offenders has been deemed public information, and was obtained directly from the Indiana Sheriffsâ€™ Sex and Violent Offender Registry. Watchdog Weekly makes no guarantee as to the accuracy of the information. Those pictured are not all child predators. Information provided in Watchdog Weekly must not be used to harass, disparage, or otherwise discriminate against those depicted. Watchdog Weekly does not make any claims as to whether or not those pictured are currently dangerous or currently engaging in any illegal activities, whatsoever. However, they are all registered sex and/or violent offenders.
According to the Middle Way House website regarding Violence Against Women: ǷǷDomestic violence is the most repeated, least reported crime in the nation. It is the single most serious cause of injury to women. ǷǷA woman is beaten every 15 seconds in this country. One million of them report to hospital emergency rooms. Over 1,000 die every year from the beatings, stabbings, or gunshot wounds.
Domestic Violence ǷǷAccording to statistics posted on the Indiana Attorney General website, there were 51 domestic violence deaths in Indiana from July 1, 2008 – June 30, 2009. The youngest was 5 months old.
Do you have a safety plan?
ǷǷViolence, which may start in the dating relationship, escalates over time. It occurs more frequently, and it gets increasingly dangerous. ǷǷMore than 50% of men who abuse their wives also abuse their children. Child abuse or worse occurs at a 1500% higher rate in families experiencing domestic violence. And, domestic violence is harmful to the emotional well-being of children. ǷǷRape is not sex. It is violence that mimics sex. ǷǷA woman is raped every 41 seconds in this country. It is estimated that two in four women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetimes; one in four will be raped. ǷǷRape can have devastating long-term effects on victims and serious negative impact on victims' families, friends, and co-workers. ǷǷAny unwanted sexual activity is sexual assault. NO MEANS NO. ǷǷRape and domestic violence are crimes – no less serious than other violent crimes even though victim and offender are known to each other. ǷǷNeither battering nor rape is ever the victim's fault.
Here are some things to think about and arrange when creating a safety plan for yourself: • Plan what to do before a violent incident occurs. Leave the room or the home if your partner becomes violent. Have an escape route planned to get out of the house. • Maintain close contact with family, friends, and neighbors. Establish a code in case an emergency arises (i.e. If you call and use an agreed upon word that signals you are in danger). • Know where a safe place is and arrange with a trusted person for transportation to get you there. Call the police if necessary and learn other emergency numbers to call. If you have injuries, go directly to the hospital. • If you work outside the home, give your employer basic information and instructions not to tell your partner of your plans and to call the police if he comes to your workplace. Leave instructions with your children’s school, day care, or baby-sitter that you are the only person who will pick the children up. Make it clear that the children are never to leave with anyone but you. • Keep a suitcase packed. You can leave it with someone so that your partner won’t find it. • Keep copies of all important records with a friend or family member. Birth certificates, social security cards, immunization records, insurance policies, car titles, bank account records, blank checks, mortgage information, health insurance cards, etc. • Keep a set of car keys hidden, preferably outside somewhere, or in a magnetic case on the car. If you leave by car, lock the car doors as soon as you get in. • Take steps to increase your financial self-reliance. Establish your own checking account, one separate from that of your partner. Establish credit in your own name, if you can do so safely. Try to establish an emergency fund and add to it whenever possible.
10 Things Your Abusive Partner will never tell you: 1. That the violence in our relationship is MY fault and that I will always have someone or something to blame for MY behavior.
If you live in Monroe County Indiana or the surrounding counties, are in an abusive relationship and need help, call:
2. That you do not deserve to be abused, no matter how many times I’ve told you that you do. 3. That I will make you feel like you are not worthy of love, affection, and respect. I am lying to you because I need you to have low self-esteem – it is one way to control you. 4. That jealousy is not a sign of love – jealousy is a sign of possessiveness and I look at you as my property. 5. That my drinking and/or drug addiction does make the abuse worse. I need help and I will probably not get it on my own.
Middle Way House 24 Hour Crisis Hotline (812) 336-0846.
6. That there is a strong probability that I will abuse the children as well and it will have a lasting effect on them.
Or contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline 1−800−799−SAFE (7233) or TTY 1−800−787−3224.
8. If you are feeling threatened and afraid, then you should talk to someone about your concerns. There are resources that will help you to stay safe and protect you and your children if you decide to leave me. I may come looking for you and, if I find you, I will say and/or DO anything to try to make you come back to me
7. Fear is what motivates me, and I know that I can control you with it. I want you to be afraid, because if you are, you will be more controllable.
9. That you are in danger – My abuse will only continue to grow more frequent and severe as long as you are with me. Nothing you do will ever live up to the expectations I have of you because I have unreasonable expectations. 10. You’re only escape may be your death if you do not seek safety for you and the children.

Strange But True Man Pays for Crack with Monopoly Money Wichita, Kansas
A routine traffic stop in Wichita, Kansas turned bizarre when the man in the car was found to be bleeding from the head and spinning an unusual tale. The 33-year old man said he used Monopoly money to pay his crack dealer for over $2,000 in crack cocaine a couple of weeks ago. According to Gordon Bassham with the Wichita Police Department, “The man from whom he had bought the drugs was upset and invited him over to his house and upon arrival struck him in the head several times with a handgun and other people jumped into the fray." The man was able to get away without sustaining any life-threatening injuries. Despite the bizarre nature of the situation, police were still looking to arrest the attacker. “That was not a Get Out-of-Jail Free card,” Bassham said

He also told cops "someone was going to shoot up the district." He ended up in jail, alright. But in a separate cell from his girlfriend.
Robber Tries to Hold Up Closed Bank
Location: Austria A would-be bank robber in Austria, apparently unaware of “bankers hours”, bungled a hold up attempt when he turned up at the branch after they had closed. The baffled staff inside, who thought this was part of the training session they were participating in at the time, watched in amusement as he hammered on the door with his gun demanding to be let in. The confused crook, donning his Barack Obama mask, grew more and more angry with each shriek of laughter coming from inside, and eventually fled empty-handed.
Clown Car Caught Speeding Location: Switzerland For most who have had their picture snapped by a speed trap camera, the worst part of the ordeal is the ticket they receive in the mail a week later.

Noticing the flash, Oberle commented that this might look odd to police, who later tracked them down and issued a ticket for 110 Euros.
