I've considered it.  But my kid would just eat his way out of a wooden cage.
 
2013-01-30 09:12:00 PM  
A police spokesman said Patriarchias had been trying to adopt the girl but hadn't been able to reach the girl's birth mother to get her consent.

Well this certainly isn't going to help.

And WTF? It's not even their kid? Why is this child living with them??

The least-unsettling possibility I can think of is that the kid's birth mother would have somehow been even worse.

Aw, it's just a kid's playhouse. I had one as a child. When I think of all the hours I whiled away in that playhouse, listening to the intermittent crackle of the TV from the other room where Mommy and my uncles wrestled all the time....oh, man. I miss being a kid sometimes, you know?

Developmentally disabled (i.e. retarded) children are much like chickens or parrots.  They don't mind being in cages.  They only need to be fed, given something to drink and their spaces need to be kept clean of poop, piss and other possible contaminants.  They don't really need love because their minds don't understand love.  If you tried to hug a chicken, it will run away.  Do you want to know why?  It's because a chicken has no need for love.  Much like a retarded child.

The problem is that although we like to think of ourselves as "civilized", we still have little understanding of the mind of a retarded child.  I spoke to a professor who is noted for his work with retarded children, and has done extensive research for Harvard University as well as other top schools in the nation.  He said that retarded children operate on the same level as unsophisticated animals, and can be treated as such with no negative repercussions to society.  He has recommended for years that we house retarded children in human-sized coops.  He said we just need to provide heating, minimal clothing and some bedding in their living quarters.  Feed them twice a day and hose them off with high powered hoses.  The dollar savings would be tremendous.  He said giving love to a retarded child is really a waste of time since the payoff to society is nothing.  No matter how much love they are given, they will never be able to really reciprocate, at least not to a level of sincerity that people of average intelligence would consider to be "normal".  So he recommended that we treat them like chickens, because that's all the care they really require.

FTFA: "Patriarchias, 33, has been charged with negligently causing child abuse. Gonzales, 37, was charged with negligently permitting child abuse."

Nothing negligent about it. They intentionally took responsibility for and let the kid live there, they intentionally made (or had made) a wooden cage, they intentionally put the kid in the cage, and they intentionally left the disabled kid in the crate while they were gone for several hours.

Is there a legaleze definition of "negligent" that means something like "yeah, I did it, but it wasn't that bad and really, nothing really bad happened, even though something really bad could have happened, so I got lucky, right"?

Well, that is the mark of TRUE LOVE - a thorough cost-benefit analysis. Forget for a moment that the guy doing THIS analysis is completely wrong... loving those retarded kids is, in no way, a waste of time or without payoff.

If she was in school, she would be thrown into an "isolation room."  That is nothing more than a small, small padded room.  (And what's the difference between a room versus a cage?  Just that one is permanently affixed to a house.)

If she was in a hospital, she would be strapped to a bed and be unable to get up.

If she was committed, she would be put into a small, small padded room.  And if she injured herself, she would be strapped to a bed.

So why is it appropriate for the government to do this but not these people?

I agree, they were negligent in not having supervision, but the "cage" aspect seems more like an illogical appeal to emotion.  And in all of the examples listed above, she would only be checked up on every 10 minutes.

A different story I read said that the kid was a foster, and  she gets money for keeping a foster child.  Even sadder, the kids that went to the movies were her own--only the foster child  had to stay home.

You know, for a minute there, I actually wondered "Well, maybe she's so profoundly disabled she doesn't know or care she's locked into a cage? Maybe she has the mental age of an infant."

But then it occurred to me that you can't leave anyone that helpless alone by themselves for hours. So, it pretty much has to be either cruelty or negligence, and is likely both.
 
2013-01-30 11:13:49 PM  
We do the same thing to millions of adults every day for the same reason.  Maybe this was the first time they decided to take some time for themselves in a year.

I guess ever leaving a child unattended is a crime now? or was is the moral angle that they did it for a movie and their motives were petty and contemptible and that makes their neglect all the more severe?

Look, every devil needs an advocate.

Long story short, they needed a babysitter.
