One of the most infamous incidents of sexual assault in the Bible is the story of Sodom and Gomorrah found in Genesis 18—19. The men of these cities were so wicked that they attempted to rape the two angels who, in human form, were visiting Lot. The men of Sodom were ready to beat Lot’s door down in order to assault his guests. Lot and his family only escaped because the angels blinded the mob and whisked Lot’s family to safety. Because of the sexual perversion of Sodom and the surrounding cities, God utterly destroyed them.
Since Wyandotte County authorities announced, with some fanfare, the April arrest of a sheriff’s deputy on child sex abuse charges, the case nearly ran aground.
Inexplicably, the Wyandotte County District Attorney’s office failed to produce any evidence at Michael Edward Mastel’s scheduled preliminary hearing last week — and hadn’t shared its evidence with Mastel’s defense attorney as required by law.
That prompted District Judge Renee Henry to reschedule the hearing for Friday and to suggest she might dismiss the case if the prosecutor hadn’t turned over evidence to the defense this week, which the district attorney’s office finally did Monday afternoon…
It’s certainly a bizarre turn of events for such a serious and high-profile case, and after Wyandotte County District Attorney Mark A. Dupree Sr.’s triumphal press conference to announce the charges April 16. At the time, Dupree heralded Child Abuse Prevention Month and exhorted the public that “when a child makes the statement, when a child finds enough gall to stand up to their abuser or to tell, let them tell. Don’t call them a liar. Don’t say ‘I don’t believe you.’ I hope the community takes away that if you hear something if you see something … One: Believe the child. Then two: Say something about it.”
Yet months later, there’s no evidence to be had at the preliminary hearing, which is held to determine if there’s merely enough proof to put someone on trial?
Jonathan Carter, the district attorney’s spokesman, explained in an email to The Star that evidence “was not available last Friday because there was a continuance.” Quite the opposite, it appears there was a continuance because there was no evidence.

In a subsequent email, Carter maintained, “The continuance was because the detective, in this case, was unavailable. … the detective had files pertaining to the case and was not available.”
Asked if there was anything said in court about missing or misplaced evidence, Carter replied, “No.” But multiple sources in the courtroom at the time have reported that the prosecutor did indeed admit to not being able to find the evidentiary file in the case, and said that the file would be recreated if need be.
Regardless, how could the day of a vital hearing in a prominent child rape case involving a sheriff’s deputy arrive without all parties being prepared? How is it the detective was unavailable and the hearing wasn’t rescheduled before its appointed time? How is it the prosecutor didn’t have copies of all the evidence in the case? How is it the defense attorney didn’t have access to that evidence until this Monday?
Unfortunately, the answers to those questions may not be forthcoming. The district attorney’s office simply stopped responding to The Star’s inquiries about the case.
How can such a notable case involving a sheriff’s deputy, made more noteworthy by the district attorney’s press conference and including such serious charges — rape, aggravated criminal sodomy and three counts of sexual exploitation of a child — be so carelessly handled as to risk dismissal by a judge?
Is this case a priority or not?

Let Me Make This Abundantly Clear. (I Am Apolitical) While I Have a General Distaste for Politicians No Matter the Party They Belong To, I Am Unashamedly Politically a Bible Believing Conservative Christian. I Have a Severe Distrust of Government. I Believe It Is the Most Inefficient and Ineffective Way to Accomplish Most Things. While I Strongly Disagree with Liberals/Progressives and Conservative on Most Political Issues, and While I Believe Liberals/Progressives and Most Politicians Are Terribly Misguided and Naive About What Big Government Will Eventually Result In, I Strive to Not Question Their Motives. at the Same Time, While I Find Myself in Agreement with Conservative Politicians on Some Issues, I Do Not Believe Electing Republicans Is the Answer to Everything. for Me, Very Sadly, the Main Difference Between Republicans and Democrats Is How Quickly They Want to Drive the Car Towards the Cliff. Simply put, I do not believe the government is the solution for everything. I do not place any faith, trust, or hope in any politicians to fix what is wrong with the world. “Come Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20)
Education is useless without the bible (Daniel Webster)
Usually, the Lord doth no great thing for or against his people, without giving warning of it before it comes.
John Wesley who said that what we tolerate in our generation, will be embraced by the next. Wesley is 100% correct! We are living in sick times.
Evil Exists So Spiritual Warfare Becomes Necessary!
- Corinthians 4:8-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
- We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9. persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10. always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
Satan has power over (LGBTQE-TRANS PEOPLE). The “sons of disobedience” referred to in Ephesians 2:2 are those who have not trusted Christ as Lord and Savior (cf. Acts 26:18; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 13:12). The demons are also under the rule of Satan (Matthew 12:24), and one of his titles is “prince of demons” (Matthew 9:34). Satan has a kingdom (Matthew 12:26) and a throne (Revelation 2:13). Satan is called a prince because he is a ruler and possesses the power to manifest evil in the world through influencing people and commanding demons.
HNewsWire- “All political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable.” Just look at some of our modern-day examples: torture is “enhanced interrogation techniques”; murder is “collateral damage”; the aggression initiation of war is a “pre-emptive strike”; the theft of taxpayers’ money is a “bailout”, and the theft of depositors’ money in a bank is a “haircut” or “bail-in”.In a blatant example of Newspeak, the New World Order controllers (through the psychiatric DSM V) have tried to rename pedophiles as “minor-attracted persons” and redefine pedophilia as “sexual orientation”. This makes no sense since sexual orientation has to do with gender, not age, with whether you are attracted to males or females, not how old they are. There are even organizations (like B4UAct.org) which are claiming that pedophiles are being unfairly stigmatized for their feelings!
