It's generally frowned upon to leave children unsupervised like that. Also, it's apparently considered improper to go up to the new girl in your office and routinely cup a fist to one side of your mouth while poking the inside of your other cheek with your tongue, as I learned last week. Does HR honestly think I'm going to ask her for one out loud? God that's uncouth.

TheDumbBlonde: Gig103: So when Sheriff Joe Arpaio leaves innocent people* to sweat, it's okay. But when this lady does it, 19 felonies?

* Tent City is a jail, where you go before trial. We are innocent until proven guilty, in theory.

I've yet to hear a single story about Joe Arpaio abandoning 19 children, aged 8 farking months to 14 years old with no AC or food. Plus, for the Farkers: There were animals involved.


Well, there's your food right there.

iheartscotch: Ambivalence: cmb53208: Grew up in the South, and as far back as I can remember (1976) we had air conditioning. And up here in Wisconsin, the AC unit in my apartment dates back to at least the Nixon administration. Most people I talked with up here had window AC in a couple of rooms rather than central, but AC nonetheless

I grea up in Alaska. We NEVER had air conditioning. Alaskans must be poor rednecks.

That; or live in a godless frozen wasteland. I'm surprised Alaskans don't talk about the dovahkiin coming to save their frozen home.

/ I keed, I keed

Holy shiat, that's like perpetual pregnancy. I bet she's already 8 months pregnant with number 20.

ladyfortuna: "When deputies arrived, they found 19 children ranging from 8 months to 14 years old with no supervision, no working air conditioning or food."

I am absolutely not defending her, nor am I saying this is right, but since when is A/C considered absolutely necessary to survival? Water to drink, shade, maybe a basement or pool/pond/river/creek/shower, etc, sure, but A/C?

Go back probably 10-20 years, and it wasn't exactly standard for most Americans, even. I certainly didn't grow up with it, although I acknowledge in NY it wasn't really necessary most summers. Even then, I doubt the majority of southerners had it till recent years.


You doubt that the majority of Southerners had AC until recent years? What farking century/decade do you live in? Is it your assumption that we wear straw hats, f*ck cousins and run around barefoot as well?

I'm from Tennessee and 37 years old and I can not think of one instance of not having AC. I can't remember going anywhere that DIDN'T have AC accept maybe the most rural parts of the south and those places had fans.

somehow you jumped to the conclusion that it is. it's just a detail in the write-up. combined with 90 degree weather it just adds to the neglect charges. this was all over our local news tonight, something the article forgot was that she was contacted while returning from Chicago and it was mentioned she was out of town for a "family emergency". Im guessing ill get more details tomorrow.
