Deonne Dickerson Michelle Gregg

The search continues for a 7-year-old boy apparently lost in a wooded area in Japan. More than 150 police and rescue workers combed a wooded area searching for the boy on Mount Komagatake, the northern-most of Japan’s four main islands.

Yamato’s parents initially told police the boy was last seen picking wild vegetables on the island on Saturday.

But after further interrogation, the parents admitted they let the boy out of their car and left him as punishment.

They said when they returned “immediately” to the area, the boy was gone.

“The parents left the boy in the mountains as a punishment,” a police spokesman said.

“They said they went back to the site immediately but the boy was no longer there.”

Yamato’s father told a news reporter he was too afraid to tell the truth when he first contacted authorities.

Police are not considering charging the parents.

Deonne Dickerson Michelle Gregg

Meanwhile, Cincinnati police are considering whether to charge the parents of the 4-year-old boy who fell or jumped into a gorilla enclosure resulting in the shooting death of an endangered primate on Saturday.

Deonne Dickerson, 36, and Michelle Gregg, 32, face criminal charges in the death of Harambe, a rare gorilla who turned 17 the day before he was shot dead by the Cincinnati Zoo’s dangerous animal response team.

The zoo’s director admitted the little boy was not being attacked by Harambe, who was killed while he stood guard over the child.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters announced the investigation by the Cincinnati Police Department Tuesday.

Deters and the police will confer on “possible criminal charges” after the investigation is complete, according to the NY Daily News.

    I hate watching Judge Judy when cases involve kids or animals. Ditto for Sandra Rose.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Japan’s rules are sooo different. They would be charged with SOMETHING over here. I don’t have an opinion on the zoo couple being charged. I mean, are their signs in the zoo warning of the dangers of the open enclosures? blah. the boy is safe, the animal is dead and the mom was a moron for a few seconds of her life. i’ve been a moron parent as well i’m sure but, it hasn’t been caught yet because nothing has happened to my child. i don’t like the zoo though and i do keep mine within arms reach at all times but, i can’t remember every second of every zoo trip i’ve taken her on so…. blah.

  • TheRealLee

    So one child possibly dead due to parental negligence and possible homicide will not be charged, while another set of parents took eyes off their child resulting in the death of a gorilla might be charged (insert a charge here to satisfy the angry crowds). The world is truly upside down and we don’t deserve to roam it.

    Love the controversial write-up Sandra……these comments will last me for the rest of the day or atleast until 3:30…I get off

    that is something that is legally calculated, from dad’s income. So,
    it’s not even a set number. I just want to have Royalty in a safer home.
    I would want it to be not leave to dad, and not be in a mansion, and
    huge playrooms and backyards and TV rooms, and then she comes home with
    me, and you know, she’s in a small apartment. I just want to keep her
    balanced. He feels like she should have everything when she’s with him,
    and limited when she’s with me. And I don’t think that is ok, at all.”

My heart rate skyrocketed, I began to sweat profusely and my mind told me I would never see him again. Yep, all that in 30 seconds. Meanwhile, he’s a few feet away, quietly sitting on the floor. Whew!

  • rayne215

    If the mother threw the child in the exhibit herself(which according to most, that basically what she did) The zoo STILL needed to save the child. The gorilla had the child in a corner. On another note, my behind woulda been in there to get my child my self, i couldnt let my son be in there for TEN MINUTES! If the zoo wanna sue the mom etc fine, but that was a 400 lb GORILLA, anything couldve happened. RIP tho

Kids will run off at any given moment and a crowded zoo is not the place to just let your kids run wild.

THESE ARE ANIMALS! PRIMATES! So it was okay for him to drag this little boy through water? A 400lb gorilla that can crush a coconut with one hand? Maybe he was responding as if it were a baby gorilla; that doesn’t mean it was safe for the child or that the child was not in danger or couldn’t be injured.

    My God, I hope that find that little boy. No charges against his parents, but this country will consider charges against the error of a parent of a child because a gorilla was killed.

    If they consider charging the Black parents, then they should consider charging all those stupid a** parents I see who leave their children to find for themselves in stores while they are looking off somewhere else. I agree that parents MUST keep an eye on their children, but this is NOT an jailable offense. They just want to give Black people records. They know how to incite White folks too. They do so by bringing up the father’s criminal record as if that has anything to do with the incident this past Saturday. Now the Japanese parents? Hell yes, they should be thrown under the jail!

  • i troll it like i see it

    I hope they get charged, and the zoo director position needs to be reevaluated. Harambe didn’t deserve this.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    2 different countries Hun. Japan does jail everyone for everything. They probably incarcerate a fraction of the amount of their people in comparison to the US’s incarceration rate. Also a gorilla was killed solely because of those parents. The parents are VERY LUCKY their child wasn’t killed. These are dangerous animals we’re talking about.

    THIS! SO many of us are ready to judge and point a finger at them…what if (in a split second) it had been your child? Most of the mistakes we parents make are not put on the front page news, although they could be. As I heard it, she was attending to her other children. I’m sad the gorilla lost his life over this but in an instant the “caring” attitude the gorilla displayed could have turned into something else. Who knows? It’s a twisted world we live in when there is more outrage at an animal losing it’s life than a 12 year old being shot like HE was the animal.

  • Elevated Soul

    The joys of being Black in America….

    I recall a white child falling in a pit at a zoo, where wild African dogs roamed,and he was ripped apart and killed.His mother had sat him on top of a banister type thingy, so that the child to get a better look,and he fell in the pit.I believe this happened in Pittsburgh,a couple of years ago.No one has heard from them sense and in truth she was VERY VERY negligent.

    If this couple had been white,I bet no one would be making any noise. I agree that the mother, should have been paying more attention,but unfortunately many of these parents dropped the ball….

    Bottom line is many of these PETA types as well as whites in general, are really complaining that the ape was killed,because they feel the ape’s life is more valuable that the little black boy….

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    How do you get away with leaving your child in the woods? They probably were going to leave him for good and then guilt set in. Dum asses

    I think the so-called “charges” are because of the petition and pressure from the populous who see a gorilla’s life as more valuable than a Black child’s life.

  • SpideySense

    Such a double edged sword.

    The last time I went to the zoo I cried. I was with a friend and her lovely little boys. We went into the gorilla exhibit and there was the female gorilla sitting there looking at us through the glass. Every so often she would sigh heavily, the way you see old folks do. I had to leave. I could see it in her eyes – consciousness. She knew it wasn’t right and I knew too. I was so excited to go and now I will never go back. They do a lot for the animals and much of it is good work. But the primates are too close to us. They know what’s happening and they are depressed.

    I want to cry just thinking about it.

  • SpideySense

    This is actually the point of those spousal support rulings. The children can be influenced by the wealth of one parent over the other (mansion vs. Studio apartment) so they have the richer party supplement the poorer party’s income so the child can maintain a similar standard of living no matter which parent they are with.

    She was never a spouse and (allegedly) had this baby for the come up so I don’t feel bad for her. I do understand what she is saying however.

    I have retract everything I said Friday. I thought it was a yt mother that let her kid crawl into the moat. It was a sister. She needs to go hide. YT folks are mad. They want her head and none of us can defend her negligent behind. Sigh.

    I don’t know. Folks are pretty pissed that a gorilla died because a black child was in danger.

  • Pebbles

    Apparently the nydailynews has done a news article on the zoo parents claiming the zoo incident is turning racial do to the fact
    Do to others incidents as early as last year and none of the parents were indentified nor wasthe background called into question & the father wasn’t even at the zoo.

    Tmz, celebrities etc everyone given there input on this story…

    Interesting read

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    That’s what wild life preservation’s are for. Animals don’t belong in the Zoo period. How would you feel if you were locked up 24/7 365 and forced to let go of whatever natural instincts you have? Have you seen the depressed look on the animals at the Zoo? Its clear they don’t want to be there.

  • Ebony Starr

    A white woman, who works with me, said that she wishes that they would have left the boy in the moat. She is really angry about this gorilla being shot!

    You’re talking theory verses reality. The reality is if we didn’t have zoos 90% of people would never see a real lion , elephant, gorilla , etc. they used to have zoos with real African children in the Netherlands 70 years ago..so I’ll take the animals over the people.

  • Allihave2say

    Look at how the tides have changed. At first it was said that the risk was so great that the gorilla had to be shot. It was argued that the child was in danger and that the gorilla was dragging the child with intent to kill. Now the gorilla was protecting the child and the mother should be shot and killed.

    BW we are under attack. Stand guard.

  • Allihave2say

    Here’s my question, doesn’t she have another child with her HUSBAND? What is she doing for THAT CHILD? Where are her pics of that child at dance, soccer, bb or music class? Has she forgotten she has that child?

  • Allihave2say

    Well ok let’s balance the scales of justice. In Florida a silver back gorilla lived after he shot an innocent black child. Balanced. Even.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Question: do you eat meat? Do you eat eggs? Do you eat broccoli?

    Those are all living things that I’m sure you consume. Should cows be slaughtered so you can eat your bacon cheeseburger? Should a growing planned be killed for your salad? Should that chicken be killed before it can grow in that egg?

    You’re a hypocrite. Animals shouldn’t be in a zoo because they’re suffering according to you- but it’s okay to eat them ??! Girl bye

  • JENNYJONES1

    AS I SAID B4 THERE’S A VIDEO OF AN I-WITNESS SAYING THE LITTLE BOY KEPT SAYING HE WAS GOING TO GO DOWN AND PLAY WITH THE GORILLA OR MONKEY AND THE MOTHER SAYING ‘OH NO YOU AIN’T’! I THINK RIGHT THEN AND THERE THEY SHOULD’VE GRABBED HIS HAND UNTIL THEY WERE WAY PASS THAT EXHIBIT BUT I THINK PEOPLE TAKE FOR GRANTED OR DON’T 100% UNDERSTAND THESE ZOOS OPEN ENCLOSURES. THESE ZOOS AREN’T BABYSITTERS TO ENSURE YOUR KID’S SAFETY. WE STILL HAVE TO BE MINDFUL PARENTS OF THE DANGERS OF THESE WILD ANIMALS THERE. THERE’S TOO MUCH OUTRAGE, THE PARENTS ARE BLACK AND SOCIETY ALREADY THINKS WE DON’T PARENT WELL SO BELIEVE ME SOMETHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN…………JENNY JONES!!!

  • Pebbles

    Wrong actually it was reporter who outed the family & the fathers criminal history ( the father wasn’t event at the zoo)

    A little boy fell in the cheetah pen last year the parents were never identified . Time after that a parent dangles her son in a lion cage her son was killed mother never identified .a few other instances, people never identified.

    By the time the mother said anything her, the info was already out about her family.

    It’s terrible! People talking about the gorilla was protecting , the gorilla beautiful animal but unpredictable… No one & I mean no one knows what the animal capable of it can turn on you in a second because of its nature..

    If I were the parents I was sue just the fact of putting the name out there is family in danger .

    By the end of the week they’ll have work, place & address on the Internet.

  • JENNYJONES1

    ALSO THIS IS A PRIME EXAMPLE FOR THE COME BACK OF THE CHILD LEASH THAT WAS POPULAR IN THE 90s. I SAW A MOTHER WITH 2 KIDS IN ONES THIS WEEKEND. LOL!!!………..JENNY JONES!!!

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Cause you know you sound like a fvcking idiot. How do you know those animals are suffering. Those animals have better healthcare than you or I. They get all of their meals delivered- they don’t have to hunt, and the temperature is controlled. They have no obstacles or predators trying to kill them. They’re living pretty good to me. If you’re going to type an argument at least be able to defend it jerk off.

  • S T

    just saw, LIVE, a journalist (guest) on a news panel, discussing the fact that the father’s reported criminal history is now being discussed in the media; this, in his opinion, indicating, what we already know, a news media race bias. The journalist reasoned that had the parents been another demographic, the father’s supposed criminal history would not have been reported, or called into question, as here. The parents face neglect charges, possible removal of the child’s (and/or their three other children) removal from the home. Mm.

  • S T

    Right….we dont parent well, but for the generations parenting “theirs” in those plantation houses….this while situation is just, ugh! Smh.

    ..and to think black PEOPLE used to be on display in zoos. It’s a sick cultural entertainmen,t cloaked as science. Sick. I understand your comment…. Totally.

  • Queen B

    Make them scoop gorilla shit for a whole yr lol ?

  • the guest

    Agreed.

    The mother should be held accountable because her negligence is at fault for the entire tragedy.

    How dare she not feel in any way accountable for her four year old child’s actions under her watch. I do not like this mother because she’s self serving and selfish.

    I said in my comments from the start she’s stupid and her child inherited her lack of sense. No child in their right mind begs to go swimming in a pool with gorillas. The kids lacks boundaries just like his mother.

    This was not an accident. This was parental incompetence and determined disobedience. Child went through two barriers and walked a ledge then fell before his mother got around to notice him then yelling from 15ft up mommy’s here.

    If his mommy was there for him he wouldn’t be in the gorilla pool.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Yes I don’t know 4 year olds that do stuff like that.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    They should lol

  • the guest

    Amen.

  • the guest

    This kid is in for a future of trouble. His mother lacks control and accountability and now this tragedy has taught him that he will be rewarded with fame and sympathy for breaking rules. His mother has taught him that his willful breaking rules is an accident. So when his high risk behavior and disobedience graduates to crime his crimes will be an accident too? Michelle Gregg is an idiot.

  • the guest

    Exactly! That’s what I’m saying. The headlines should’ve been onlookers had to hold back mom from jumping in or mom went in after her child. But not stupid incompetent lazy excuse making Michelle Gregg.

  • the guest

    Thank you. I would’ve been right in that water getting my children and Harambe would’ve known to step back and let us leave in peace. Why was there no attempt at distraction. Why the heck wasn’t the zoo workers in that water distracting the gorilla?

  • the guest

    LOL

  • the guest

    I don’t respect Nia, but I agree with her on this point. She is 100% right.

    She didn’t have this baby as a come up off of Chris because she didn’t event want him to be the father and was content raising the baby with another man and the child was not deprived.

    It was Chris who after a year of hiding the existence of the baby to Karreruche pressured to be identified as the child’s father only after Kareuche said she wouldn’t accept the baby and left him.

    Chris has the controlling manipulative destructive vindictive mind of the addict and batterer he his. His parenting is all show image and bling to spite his child’s mother. He wanted his child’s mother to live on his property in the guest house and when she refused he spited her with a custody filing and low child support.

    He chose to lay with an unemployed married and separated stay at home mother and in good conscious, character, moral, and manhood provide his daughter with two homes being that he chose an older kept woman to be the mother of his child.

    He should be paying this woman at least $10,000 per month. But he’s economically abusive and punishing her because he chose to sleep around and lost his long term girlfriend because of it.

  • Dee

    I so agree with you, I will never go to the zoo again either. I took my two kids last summer for a good time and left feeling sad. ALL of the animals look sad even the fish, but especially the primates and those gorillas closed in behind glass broke my heart. We went to look at them and they either moved way over to a different area or turned their back. So very sad.

  • Look@m3

    OOOOOMMMMMMGGGGGGG!!!!! You going to get me FIRED! LMAO!

    I sometimes wonder If they were to take me out of my comfortable home away from the internet and cell phones, cpu refrigerated foods, microwave and flat irons and weaves and placed me in a jungle if Id be sad too. Yeah I don’t think I would make it!

    …at any rate, the gorilla is dead, the boy is alive. Let this shyt go. BTW, I do not remember when other kids fell into animal cages/enclosures having their parent’s name and background ran all through the news OR charged.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Now your being obtuse . Yes I eat meat there isn’t anything wrong with eating meat, that’s why I have sharp teeth in my mouth! I don’t eat any and every kind of meat not all animals are food
    Example pigs . Pigs are not ment for human consumption, but people eat it anyway. Me eating meat has noting to do with the price of tea in China.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Not at all. You’re saying its bad for animals to suffer in a zoo but not bad for animals to suffer on a dairy farm or any other place if you’re eating them. If you’re that hardcore about animals suffering then I would assume you’re a vegan. Don’t just type bullchit on a blog.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    No I don’t know any kids that sneak into Gorilla enclosures in a zoo. That’s not what normal kids do. When was the last time you heard something like this happening? And if that child had of been killed then what??!

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Indigenous people / black people respected the land and nature it self. They understood that everything has it’s season, you can’t over work the land and drain it of its resource’s. Animals don’t belong in Zoo’s , not all animals are ment to be eaten. I can eat meat and still advocate for animal rights there isn’t anything wrong with that. The Eco system was doing great until COLONIST started running the show. When those white people set their destructive paws in the Americas , game over! No one had a problem with disease, lack of food or extinction prior to that. The same people shouting for animal rights, running PETA , broadcasting the commercials for sick animals 24/7 etc. Are the same ones who’s ancestors screwed up the Eco system and now they have the audacity to demand WE help them clean up their mess. My people didn’t destroy the planet , the ones who go Ham every time a dog dies did.

  • ?E?E?M?A

    Who are you to say where animals belong. Again if you’re not vegan and you’re talking about animals suffering then you’re full of chit.

  • ce

    In 38 years, no one has breached that enclosure. The parents should be sued for every penny from the purchase to the maintenance of this endangered silver back and charged for neglect–parents have to be responsible for their children and in this case accountable for the loss of the gorilla. Michelle Gregg is the most hated mother in America and should be. Had her child died, she would have gotten a big black lottery and society would still have lost this silver back, a world wide treasure.
