Sons Of Guns Star Charged With Child Rape

As much reality television as I watch, I have never watched Sons Of Guns. I have seen the promos, but it is just not my kind of show. The star of the show, William Hayden, was arrested earlier this month and charged with molesting his 11 year old daughter. He said the charges were bogus and were the result of his ex-girlfriend wanting to get back at him after they broke up. Yesterday, Hayden was arrested again and charged with child rape after his daughter told authorities that Hayden raped her on a daily basis and she never told police or anyone else because he threatened her with harm if she did. Hayden is a former Marine and the show based on his gun store in Louisiana has aired on Discovery for the past three years. If this is true, the guy needs to spend the rest of his life in jail and see what prisoners think of people who molest and rape kids.

oh sweet Jesus, what a dismal story.

sandybrook said...

do networks ever do background checks on these losers they hire to do reality tv or is that the point? They hire people that continue to embarrass them in ways real actors or actresses never did.

BeckyMae said...

Enty is starting with the BOTTOM of the barrel again I see.....

auntliddy said...

The way children are abused and devalued all over the world breaks my heart. Send this piece of shit to jail.

sandybrook said...

evening Becky. Starting this way is SOP 'round here.

BeckyMae said...

Hi Sandy! Yeah and sometimes it doesn't even make it to the TOP, lol!! Howsit going?

sandybrook said...

Ok for now Becky. No floods on the patio, the hurricane nearby is 400 miles out in the ocean and wont do anything here and its hawt already at 9am.

Vita19a said...

I glad this is not a blind so we can guess which child was abused for our entertainment.

discoflux said...

Sandy - A background check wouldn't have caught what he was allegedly doing. And for him to hold the type of government contracts for his company that he fulfills, I can promise you there's a BIG OLD background check.

Regardless, if proven to be true, this is HORRIBLE and he deserves a life sentence.

sandybrook said...

Oh I know about that discoflux. I live near Patrick Air Force base and girl who lived in my building went for a job there. She had moved away from here 2 years before but there was a government gent ringing my doorbell acting all secretive--asking do you remember a short curly haaired girl who lived upstairs? Never said her name until I remembered it THEN he interrogated me about her, her activities, did I like her etc. for about 20 minutes. Got the answers I could provide and thanked me and left.

Sweet Jesus, what a piece of scum. Hope they enjoy him in prison.

So he did a Polanski and a woody allen altogether? I'm waiting for all those hollyweirders to support him as in the other cases.

crila16 said...

Never heard of the show, but I'm disgusted by these sick people. They're actually roaming the planet among the rest of us.

"do networks ever do background checks on these losers they hire to do reality tv or is that the point? "

Obviously Not.

Otherwise we wouldn't be subjected to torture with back water trailer trash like Honey Boo-Boo, all the "Housewives of...", Kartrashians, Gypsie/Traveller --CRAP

So much for "intelligence" amongst the TV exec/producers

I've never seen the show. I hope the daughter gets the counseling she needs to help her deal with this. She now may also have to deal with feelings of it being her fault dad was sent away. It's HIS FAULT.

TheBarberLady said...

Ewwwww. Hubby loves this show.

Hadap├║rpura said...

If the charges are true, I hope he becomes the prison bitch for the rest of his life.

figgy said...

This is a horrible crime if true, and IF it turns out to be true, hope he rots in jail.

That's a big IF.

You can ruin a person's life with a claim of child molestation, so there are some people who will use it as the ultimate revenge, which in itself is a horrible crime. Enty, do NOT jump to conclusions of guilt.

sifichick said...

@Kermit this guy didn't win an academy award or make respected movies. So he's SOL with Hollyweird coming to his defense.

Seven of Eleven said...

I remember when the Discovery channel had science shows.

discoflux said...

Seven - I remember when TLC would show various educational films from operating theaters. It was pretty astounding. You used to actually LEARN stuff on the network.

Snapdragon said...

Ah, @Seven, those were the days. Sigh.

Tina Mallette said...

Well one exam by a doctor ought to provide the evidence to prove this guy is guilty.

Just because this BI raised this question in my head, I wonder how many women get their children to cry abuse or rape and it is not true, never mind the mind f**k to the poor kid, do you ever hear about these women getting punished for their lies? And men are just as guilty with the neglect card etc. Breakups and divorce are so ugly and ugly adults make them uglier. Repeat not saying this is the case here.

Essie said...

So, the kid is 11 years old and says she was raped "on a daily basis" but she doesn't come forward until her parents breakup and the Daddy is famous and has money? Don't jump to conclusions people. Let the law do their job. I worked for law firms for 40 years and I've heard this before.

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

Before you all form a virtual lynch mob, consider that this MIGHT NOT BE TRUE.

Rose said...

It may not be true but I am much more inclined to believe the 11 year old daughter than her father.

Cee Kay said...

I'm always inclined to take a wait and see attitude. But for some reason, my gut tells me to believe this.

Jessie said...

I sat on a jury for a case like this. It was awful.

Bee Haven said...

Completely effed up. Sexual abuse, and from the person in her life she should be able to trust, and rely on for protection. This damages people for life. I hope the rest of her family are supportive, and when she's ready, that they get her into some specialist counselling and Tx.
So effed up.

Bee Haven said...

Jessie, that must've been horrific.
They wouldn't pick me for a jury having previously worked as a S.A counselor/advocate.
It must have been so difficult to remain impartial, and to have to hear witness testimonies, evidence etc. That would've sucked.

Yoj said...

@Bee Haven
A S.A. counselor/advocate, Bee?

Yoj said...

@Jessie
I can't even imagine, Jessie.

HudsonJoe said...

If this is true it is of course horrible. Problems with this post which daughter came forward he has two, one adult who works with him and this child.

The timing of this just smells associated with the breakup with the girlfriend.

SingBlue said...

@meme deemed,
I'm sure the shit that pollutes TV screens is what the research tells the execs people want.

If no-one watched, they'd can it.

Jessie said...

It was a tough one. Once it was over and I told mum about it she told me that day I would have heard the girls testimony I was cringing away from her and my dad that night.

discoflux said...

AS a follow up...

Glenn Fleming, a former RJF employee who started his own venture and who is very close to the family made a statement on his facebook page yesterday basically stating that he believes the daughter.

discoflux said...

The link wouldn't work for some reason so here's a copy/paste from his page. All spelling and grammar errors are his:

"OK Im going to break my silence on all the stuff that’s been happening. This will be my FINAL comments on it.

Also be prepared, I don’t have to watch what I say anymore because of a TV show.

First off Im going to go with innocent till proven guilty because that is the law of the land BUT there is a ton of evidence out there. Im privy to a little more info than most of yall are and I can tell you its fucked up. Like I don’t even want to know what I know fucked up.
Ive known who the accuser is for a while now and I can tell you 100% I believe her. She isn’t looking for cash she is just doing whats right. If someone out there still thinks the ex wife is trying to get back or some silly shit like that you can stop that shit now.

Did will hayden jumpstart my career? Yep sure did. So did the folks at Discovery and Jupiter productions. I appreciate what they did. And to Discov and Jupiter and most of the guys at RJF, I had a ton of fun with it Thank you.

Now to the point at hand, this may sounds harsh but ya know what fuck it. If he is guilty hang him. From the tallest tree, with piano wire.

I consider the folks I was on the show with my friends and I will always be there for em and I hate what the family is going through but remember one egotistical asshole did this. Im sure he can find one bullet"
