NASHVILLE, TN –Rape of any kind is perhaps the most traumatizing event that can ever happen to a person. Rape of an adult is atrocious, but, any rape of a child is beyond reason and words.
Recently, a man who was taken in by a family to help him while he worked with their family is suspected of drugging a 13-year-old girl and raping her. The man, who is not eligible for release due to an ICE detainer, was arrested.
Nashville Metro Police responded to the home in which the suspect, Jackson Hernandez-Gomez, had been a welcome guest on September 15th. Gomez was staying at a family friend’s residence while he worked for the woman’s family in construction.

The family’s residence is located inside of a building that also has a church attached. The kindness that this family showed Gomez was bitterly repaid by their child being allegedly drugged and raped by him.
The child’s mother had come home and noted that her child was not in her room. After a quick search of the residence, she located the child, in bed with Gomez. The mother told police that her child was:
“Not moving with white foam coming from her mouth leaving her physically helpless.”
The mother immediately called for police and medical assistance. When they arrived on scene, the teenager was immediately taken to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital for medical treatment from a suspected drug overdose. There is no update as to the child’s medical condition.
In the arrest warrant, obtained by WKRN news, Metro police allege that they made contact with Gomez who said that he had come home earlier in the night and was “drunk and high on drugs.” Gomez stated that he entered into his bedroom and laid down on his bed.
Without explanation, the teenager ended up in the man’s bed and he claims that she somehow let him know that she wanted to have sex with him. Gomez did allegedly admit that he had some type of sexual interaction with her.
Gomez was arrested and charged with sexual battery on a helpless individual. It is likely that additional charges will be filed for lewd or lascivious battery due to the victim’s age.
Gomez was taken to the Metro jail where he was assigned an $80,000 bond for the offense. An additional bond was added on September 17th which was listed at $150,000.
In a somewhat similar incident out of Louisiana, the Kenner Police Department has arrested two people and searching for another for allegations of raping a child under 13. According to the Kenner Police Department, all three suspects are siblings.
Three brothers Elder Paz-Perez, Raul Paz-Perez and Wilmer Paz-Perez have been accused of raping a 10-year old girl in Louisiana.

Police arrested Raul Paz-Perez and Wilmer Paz-Perez on September 12th for charges of first-degree rape. Elder Paz-Perez, their brother, is still on the lam.
Kenner Police Department report that the alleged rape occurred on September 9th. The incident was reported to them on the 12th.
Police state that the three men were alone with the victim at their residence when they allegedly offered money for the young girl for sexual favors. The young girl, in fear, locked herself in a bedroom hoping to escape the situation.
Sadly, the three brothers allegedly broke the bedroom door and made entry into the room. Once in the room, they undressed the young girl and then allegedly took turns raping her.
Raul and Wilmer were both arrested on the 12th without incident. However, Elder was able to elude capture and still remains at large.

ICE detainers have been placed on Raul and Wilmer while police still search for Elder. Police are asking anyone who knows the whereabouts of Elder to contact police immediately.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN –A man who had been recently bailed out of jail in Minneapolis, Minnesota by the Minnesota Freedom Fund is in custody again, this time for beating a victim so badly that he caused a traumatic brain injury.
Lionel Timms was bailed out by the fund after his arrest on July 11th in which he was charged with third-degree felony assault.
Lionel Timms Accused In Another Serious Assault After Being Bailed Out By Minnesota Freedom Fundhttps://t.co/vCFheAR2dF

Timms, 32, was recently arrested for the second time in roughly a month.
This time it was for third-degree assault, which is a felony.
This beating occurred on August 14th in the 300 block of Hennepin Avenue East. The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office reported witnesses in the area saw Timms allegedly kick a person who was on the ground.
It is believed that this kick was significant enough to cause a traumatic brain injury.
The victim, who has not been identified, was taken to Hennepin Healthcare for the traumatic brain injury. The statement advised that the victim has a fractured skull and a brain bleed and will also require stitches to lacerations from the kick.
An updated status on the victim has not been made available.
As for the group that bonded Timms out from an earlier offense in July, the Minnesota Freedom Fund released a statement on August 25th which read in part:
“The Minnesota Freedom Fund is deeply saddened and troubled by the recent arrest of Lionel Timms in connection to the recent assault of a popular and well-respected member of our community…
“The Minnesota Freedom fund received a request from Mr. Timm’s attorney for a bail on July 27th, two weeks after he was first detained. We paid his after working to first ensure that Mr. Timms would be provided with housing and other necessary support as Mr. Timms requested.

“We operate within the confines of a criminal justice system that is often unjust and unfair, overwhelmingly to Black, brown and Native peoples…
In this case, the criminal justice system failed, and we didn’t do enough to mitigate that damage by ensuring that Mr. Timms had the support he needed to safely come back to the community.”
The Minnesota Freedom Fund clearly wants to blame Timms’ criminal actions on a lack of support instead of what could clearly be the case, he could simply just be a criminal.
Saying that Timms did not have enough support to get out of jail and act like a human being is insane.
People get arrested all the time and can behave themselves, if they want to badly enough, and do not get rearrested for almost an IDENTICAL crime not even a month after being released.
Placing the blame on things as opposed to people takes away from the responsibility factor. What they are basically saying here, Timms is not at fault for beating two men up, leaving one with a significant injury.
Rather, the fact that he may not have had a good enough home, the food he wanted, etc., is the reason why these two people were beaten. That is worse than blaming the spoon for someone becoming overweight due to overeating.
But groups who claim that the criminal justice system is “unjust and unfair, overwhelmingly to Black, brown and Native peoples” clearly do not take into account what those people had been arrested for that placed them in that circumstance to begin with.
It is interesting that these liberal groups are quick to point out the number of minorities that are in jail, however, very rarely is any information released as to why they are there in the first place.
This is most likely because if they did release that information, people would no longer look at the demographic breakdown of jail populations and perhaps begin to question the reason why these people are in jail in the first place.
At least for now, Timms is in custody for his latest assault case and has a court appearance scheduled for September 15th. It is unknown if the Minnesota Freedom Fund will bond him out a second time.
