FTA:
Ramirez is extremely upset by the controversial photo and apologized for the misunderstanding. She told 9NEWS she plans to sell her car and not drive again.

Best news I've had all day.

If he's playing with a gas can in the back seat, he probably smells about the same tbh.

There might be a trace, but I doubt even gasoline could completely mask the odor of a three year old diaper wearer

I remember reading that, statisticly, it takes boys longer to potty train than girls.

Don't know if it's true. I was blessed not to have children.

It can with some toddlers, but parental involvement in the potty training process is very important. There's also the issue of some toddlers having accidents, especially if they're away from home because some of them are reluctant to use anything but their potty chair at home.

Still, it's a 3 year old wearing nothing but a diaper. If he can figure out how to unbuckle himself it seems that he can use the toilet.

If he did indeed unbuckle himself and then buckled the gas can into the seat. Of course, I think that's a heaping mound of bullshiat coming from the mother. She did that herself & is trying to make the authorities believe she's innocent.

"It is just a big misunderstanding, and I'm sorry if I offended anybody, but I'm not a bad mom," Ramirez told 9NEWS.

Lieutenant Chuck DeShazer, Commanding Officer of the Aurora Police Department Traffic Sections, told 9NEWS Ramirez was pulled over for conducting an illegal left turn.


Maybe if you weren't a bad mom, you wouldn't be endangering your children's lives by cutting off other vehicles with them in the car, or at the very least wouldn't be setting a bad example by violating the law in front of them.

He wouldn't have had to just unbuckle himself, he'd have to move the canister, buckle it in, and buckle himself in the seat next to it.

So...no...I doubt that's how it actually happened.

If only she would sell the baby and plan not to breed again, I would be okay with her keeping the car and driving again, she's not lousy at driving so much as she is lousy at reproducing.

Her facebook comment says it all "I made a mistake"
So did the kid unbuckle himself or did she decide that the gas was more important than her kid?
Love how the story changes when the news is there.

She's selling her car? Is the baby and the gas can included in the price, because I really don't need the extras?

It doesn't work that way. Two entire different skill sets, and being able to do one doesn't at all correlate with being able to do the other.

Often 3 year olds can use the toilet AT HOME, but can't hold it till they GET HOME, you know? It doesn't do him any good at all to know how to use the potty if there isn't one for three miles.

My daughter used to unbuckle herself from the car seat. She worked at it for a while until she figured out a trick that snapped open the latch without that much effort. She did it once on the freeway, but thankfully we were able to pull into a rest stop and rebuckle her. The last straw was the managed to unbuckle herself while my wife was pulling up to our mailbox. She launched herself across the empty passenger seat and had the door unlatched before my wife caught her and dragged her back.

That night, I bought a bulk package of zip ties and we ziptied over the buckle so it couldn't be released. I was always a little nervous about what we might do in an accident if we had to get her out in a hurry, but she was not leaving that seat again.

/She's seven now.

Looking at the picture, does she seriously secure the kids seat by putting the seat belt across the front of the it?

And yeah, she's full of shiat. You don't just "forget" to buckle. If you do it all the time it's something you just do when you get in your car. And she probably didn't want to bother strapping her kid down, had him sit in the normal seat, and just threw the gas container wherever he wasn't sitting.

I mean the cops would have to have the foresight to bring with them a gas can. I mean can you imagine that.

2012-06-06 07:51:10 PM
When choosing whether to buckle in the gas can or the kid, she had to consider which would make a bigger mess on the seat. Since the gas can likely wasn't wearing a diaper, she made the obvious choice

Sad story this woman needs her uncle or brothers to step in and take care of her behaviour until she is ok again. If my sister did this to her child she wouldn't sit down right for 1 month.

At my son's preschool, it was important to have the boys and girls potty-trained by 30 months (2.5 years), so I recall this vividly. Every child there was a) potty-trained in both "areas", b) none wore diapers (not allowed) and c) they could barely stack blocks, much less unbuckle then re-buckle a belt.

Best news: this mom-of-the-year has wisely taken herself off the road.

I've "forgotten" to buckle. Sometimes when we go out, our older son (now four) will sometimes run out to the car, open the door and climb into his seat. Then my wife will go out, assume I'm taking care of him, and get into the passenger seat. Then I will come out, with the infant and diaper bag, and assume that my wife took care of the first son. Then I pull out of the driveway and realize that the older son is in the middle, between seats, playing with his baby brother. It happens.

Well, I RTFA and she's not suggesting they planted the can. She is insisting that her boy knows how to buckle and unbuckle his seat belt. The boy then chose NOT to unbuckle the seatbelt on the car seat, but rather slip out, jump into the seat next to it, and then buckle that seatbelt. Then, the girl in the front seat, for some unknown reason, picked up the gas can and put it in the car seat. This made it appear to be buckled in, even though it's clear that the can was just slipped under the belt a little.

I don't know where the 'cops set her up' bit comes from in TFH.

Reading is just not a strong suit on FARK most days. She did not say she forgot to buckle the kid in, quite the opposite; the kid was buckled in the car seat (according to her). She just forgot to buckle herself in.

/FARK must produce a lot of strippers
 
2012-06-06 08:13:37 PM
No way she will talk her way out of the tickets. She should just say that it was bad judgment - she was afraid that the gas would spill so she secured it the only way she could.

Now she's not only famous for being an idiot, but also for being a liar.
