So in Houston, this Mother was charged with child abandonment when said kids were never out of sight.
To add insult to injury, she was there conducting a job interview. (And she got the job.)
This “stranger danger” and “precious snowflakes” shit is far, far out of hand for all races. Those kids were never in danger. There aren’t perverts waiting around every corner for a chance to snatch a kid away. These kids weren’t neglected — they were just fed before they went out to play. They weren’t even outside.
She was doing all the things that a parent should be doing, and got shit for it. The thing is, white parents also get shit for this — but they don’t get arrested. This mother, however, is black.
A different story says that a cop found the kids crying and alone, and took them to the mall office. Still another says that someone called the cops because the kids were alone. Given that all reporting sucks (and all cops lie) who knows what the truth is? The fact remains, however, that she still should not have been arrested.
What the hell is wrong with this cop? When I was a kid, you didn’t get dragged away and locked in the backroom if you lost your parents. The cop helped you find your parents. He sure as shit didn’t arrest them when he found them, white or black.
What kind of chickenshit busybody calls the cops to come get a crying child instead of going to help the child? How callous and cowardly an asshole are you that you won’t take the time to console a crying child, but you will call 911?
Shitheels abound in this story, and they are entirely representative of the society that we have created.
