LA Teacher Feeds Children His Semen

“But whoever hurts one of these little ones who believe in Me and causes them to loose faith, it would be better for that person to have a large stone hung around their neck, and be drowned in the sea.

But whoever hurts the faith of one of these little ones who believe in Me, it would better for that person to be dropped in the sea with a weight around their neck and be put to death. Mathew 18

Several children at Miramonte Elementary School were abused by their third-grade teacher, Mark Berndt, who fed them his semen. He blindfolded them, put tape over their mouths and even placed live cockroaches on their faces and told them it was a game. During the lunch breaks or recess, he’d go out to the playground and entice students back to the classroom. Then he photographed them, making pictures that would eventually lead to his arrest.

The police investigation began when a film processor discovered Berndt’s photos about a year ago. Since the discovery, Berndt was fired and police put him under surveillance. The investigation began after the film processor, who is required by state law to report suspicions of child abuse and molestation, turned over about 40 photographs to authorities. In addition about 400 photos were found at Berndt’s home and at the photo lab during later searches. At least 10 children in the photos have not yet been identified.

Some of the photos showed Berndt with his hand over their mouths and with live bugs the size of hissing cockroaches on their mouths or faces. Others showed girls with a spoon up to their mouths as if they were going to eat a clear-white liquid. Some children were fed semen from a spoon or on cookies. Some of the children reported being fed something very distasteful. A blue plastic spoon and container found in the trash in his classroom tested positive for his semen, investigators said. Police recommended that the children in the photos be tested for STD’s (sexually transmitted diseases).

Berndt, who has no previous arrest record, lives only a few blocks from two parks and an elementary school. There could be many more unknown victims not yet discovered. Berndt has taught as an assistant and teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School District from 1976 according to a district work history obtained by the Los Angeles Times. Berndt had no disciplinary actions on file and performed up to standards in evaluations.

Berndt was charged with committing lewd acts on 23 boys and girls, ages 6 to 10, between 2008 and 2010. Berndt was arrested Monday at his home in Torrance and was being held on $2.3 million bail. He could get a life sentence if he is convicted.

Update: They have now pulled every teacher from that school to be questioned and will be replacing the staff with new teachers during the investigation.  In my opinion, public schools are going to have to do like churches and other organizations, that is, they need to have at least two teachers in each classroom, and make sure no child is ever alone with a teacher.  Each classroom should have a teacher’s  assistant. This is for their own protection against false allegations and for the protection of the students. Abuses could still occur if the two of them cooperated, but I think this would minimize the chance of child sexual abuses occurring.

About mamaheartfilled

I am a mother of eight wonderfully challenging children and nine grandkids, of whom I am very proud. I am also a bi-vocational ordained evangelical minister, and a Christian Counselor. I received my B.S. degree in 2004, studying primarily in the areas of Psychology, with minors in Religion and English. I received my Masters Degree in 2009 in Psychological Counseling with an emphasis in Christian Counseling. I have endeavored to paraphrase the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, for the last ten years or so and am working on a final edit, now. It is my hope that it will be of some use in the great commission of Christ. My ministry is primarily geared toward victims of sexual and domestic violence, including victims of childhood sexual abuse, whether currently or in the past. Since I have personally experienced the healing hand of God in overcoming many of the life issues that Christians may face, I feel qualified and compelled to discuss them in a truthful and open manner, as God’s word tells us that “We shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free.” God has brought me through such diverse tribulations as sexual, physical, and mental abuse, being a victim of a drunk driving accident, spousal pornography addiction, adultery, divorce, remarriage, a very brief, though unjust, incarceration, and having experienced multiple miscarriages and various other trials. I have been asked to leave two Southern Baptist Churches, due to my being a female, ordained as a minister, and fired from a SBC sponsored Christian School (mostly white) for speaking out against racial prejudice in the Family of God. Through God’s merciful forgiveness of my own sins and inadequacies and God’s grace given to me to forgive those who have been a stumbling block to me, I have overcome many of these adversities. God’s word tells us that “All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to the purposes of God." Since I have this hope, I believe that God has blessed me with the ability to confront and relate these issues to the Christian community around the world. I hope to be able to use my personal experiences as a ministry of God’s grace and in the comforting of the people of God with the truth of God's mercy. I claim II Corinthians 1: 3 & 4 as my calling, which states: “Blessed be God, the Origin of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Origin of mercies, and the God of comfort; who comforts us in all our troubles, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, by the comfort we ourselves have been given by God.” As I have received the gift of God’s healing, I hope to be able to bring the peace beyond understanding to others with the message of God’s mercy and grace. My love for the Sovereign Lord of my life, Jesus Christ, along with my passion for writing has drawn me to explore these commonly experienced crisis issues from the perspective of my own experience in the hope that I may bring an empathetic and compassionate insight to God’s people. I am now a published author and have several books in publication, including my autobiography, "A Little Redneck Theology." The views expressed in my writings are strictly my own insights, acquired from personal experience and diligent study of the related topics and God’s word concerning them. Though I am an ordained minister, my views should not be considered authoritative. I believe that the Christian community’s ultimate authority is the guidance of the human heart by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
