SALEM, New Hampshire (AP) -- A Maine couple accused of tying up their 19-year-old daughter, throwing her in their car and driving her out of state to get an abortion were upset because the baby's father is black, a Maine sheriff said Tuesday.
Katelyn Kampf, who is white, told Cumberland County Sheriff Mark Dion that her mother "was pretty irate at the fact that the child's father was black, and she had made a number of disparaging remarks about that," he said.
The parents were arraigned Monday on kidnapping charges. The judge set bail at $100,000 each and ordered the Kampfs to have no contact with their daughter.
Katelyn Kampf said her mother "kept referring to the baby as a thing, as 'It,' and there were other comments made," he said.
The boyfriend, 22-year-old Reme Johnson, last week began serving a 6-month sentence for theft at the Androscoggin County Jail in Auburn, Maine. He also has previous felony convictions for burglary and receiving stolen property, the Portland Press Herald reported.
"oh honey, your having a baby, thats wonderful news. what? you say the father is a darkie. lets go for a ride". nice parents. i guess this kid shouldnt expect much on birthdays and christmas for pappy and nana. isnt it funny that the parents knew right where to go. you think they might have given this idea some thought before she told them. they keep refering to the baby as "the thing" and "it"....well wait until she names the child something like lakeisha or tre'. oh the shame they must feel because their daughter had sex with the one black man in maine. ok, the joke is that hes in jail but still. sure the guys a robber but in his defense he has another mouth to feed now and diapers aint cheap. that might be how they met...in a home invasion. imagine how hard it is to get a lineup of six black men in maine.
oh well folks, i hope you find this little story amusing. if not....too damn bad. this may not be the blog for you. enjoy your thursday.
