Amid Allegations Of Child Abuse, I Apologize To Bridgewater’s Shaina Hauter

I’d like to personally apologize to Shaina Hauter for any derogatory remarks made against her. We here at Turtleboysports try to tell it like it is, without prejudice and no matter how “politically incorrect” some stories may seem or what the consequences may be. However, let me be the first to say, it appears that I had the Shaina Hauter situation completely pegged wrong and I would like to issue my sincerest, heartfelt apology to her for inappropriately reporting on her situation.

My information was based almost exclusively on multiple interviews that her aunt, Annie Hauter gave to the Brockton Enterprise and Patriot Ledger, and since we had very little to go on concerning Shaina or her parents, I based my article largely off of the information that Annie posted on social media and that she provided to the aforementioned publications.

Crazy Annie informed the Enterprise that “Shaina was given everything she could have ever needed or wanted” hinting that Shaina was “spoiled” by her adoptive parents (Annie’s brother and his wife), and that she was “seeking attention ” running away with a “drug dealer boyfriend” and had disappeared to Rhode Island for a few days previously under similar circumstances. Annie then went on to brag that her postings on social media were the main reason Shaina was found.

Not more than two days later, Annie is confessing on facebook that her brother (Shaina’s adoptive father) was abusing Shaina. Annie’s story has completely made a 180 degree turn concerning this bizarre, horrific situation.

Look, at this point, I can’t say for certain what portions of this entire nightmare may be true or false. Hopefully police and child services can sort that out. What clearly is certain, is that this young 16-year-old foster child has a messed-up family situation. Not gonna lie, from what we are now gathering about her family, I certainly would’ve run away too.

Once again, my apologies go out to Shaina Hauter.  I’m so sorry I jumped the gun and misevaluated your situation.  All of us are happy that you were found safe, and we hope that your family (including your aunt) can now get the help that they clearly need.

    Nice job TB! and you douche bags jumping all over this mea culpa, don’t you have a few Spanky articles to catch up on? If you don’t like this blog why are you here? In other words fuck off.

    Hey I’ll take the high road on this one. It seems that ESPN’s Chris Mortensen could stand a lesson from Turtleboy on how to man up when a story reported ended up being wrong. Turtleboy I am proud of you. Chris Mortensen why don’t you grow up like our Turtleboy and man up as well.

    Hey shit happens in the business of journalism I get that – we all get that that are reasonable thinking people. Ackowledging a mistake is far better than ignoring one Chris.

    TB I love ya, but there is a lesson to be learned here. It is called responsible journalism. Never make a statement until you have heard both sides of a story otherwise your plate will be constantly loaded with crow and that’s a tough meal to swallow.

    Yes, the world is a crazy place and your frustation is understandable, but if you begin to lack discernment, empathy, and love for others then you risk becoming nothing more than a being just like the people you are against, just with a different self serving agenda. The only difference is that you approve of yours, but it is no less corrupt.

    Please be more thoughtful and a lot less knee jerk. We all have the potential to cause problems, the key is to not always assume the worst. I know it is hard. Please don’t lose sight of fairness and honesty in the face of the power you now find yourself wielding.

    Poor reporting. This really isn’t much of an apology either. You just sort of tried to rationalize it. Taking what people say on social media isn’t reporting on anything. It’s formulating opinions. Which is fun I suppose. Just be what you are. A click baiter. You go after Clive, who BTW is a POS; however you come out with something he would write. Clean it up next time. Check sources and do the leg work. At least that way you won’t need to offer an apology

    Okay, this whole story is a red flag bottomless pit. From the insane posse of poor parenting, to the drug slingin’ main man. What the hell is even happening here.

    I think with all of the reporting and investigating that Turtleboy does a story involving the foster care system in MA and I promise it’ll be a doozy. There is a TON to be exposed (I know from personal experience).

    Once Mosaic is over I say onto DCF. If you think all that is bad is either the kids or pyscho parents/foster parents – WRONG! There are some seriously sick and shady back door deals that go on with the many different Foster & Intensive Foster (for the “troubled” kids)care programs, and DCF employees, throughout the state. From the lawyers, therapists, social workers, judges… it’s a shit show. Plus, as an added bonus guess who foots the bill. Taxpayers! It’s your lucky day you win again!

    Perhaps you should avoid stories like this if you can’t get your facts straight, dickhead.

    I think the only thing we can say with certainty is that Auntie Annie is insane.

    I went to school with this girl and she was a complete bitch.

    What kind of brat puts their family through that. She ran off with her 22 year old drug dealing scumbag loser boyfriend who has no future except collecting his shitty shoes.
