concerned neighbor called police after finding one of the children outside and getting no response when he knocked on the door as temperatures dropped into the low 40s.
Police officers knocked and also got no response. One of the officers peered inside a window and saw the girl in the dog cage. Police then kicked the door in. The children were immediately placed in protective custody.
The father later told police he had taken the powerful narcotic painkiller Oxycontin, the muscle relaxer Flexeril, the anti-seizure medication Dilantin and drank a 16-oz. Busch beer, according to court records.


There are bad decisions, and then there are people like this....  Remove these children from his life, and maybe put a bullet in him for good measure.

No really, this could happen to anyone who had taken a bunch of Oxycontin, Flexeril, and Dilantin and washed them down with beer.  I mean seriously, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, how could any reasonable person expect my client to take care of kids when he was that high?  My client is the real victim here!  The state is being completely unreasonable for expecting him to take care of young children in that condition!

I can't explain the baby cage at all, but if that medication was legal (don't care not reading the article) and it was his usual dose, well...the beer was really really stupid, they tell you that explicitly, loudly, and in no uncertain terms, but even without the beer if he hadn't ate enough that day or was just tired, or whatever that combo could easily throw someone for  a loop.  As for what it takes to get on that, I would assume a seizure disorder and a back injury.  Oxy and muscle relaxers seems to be preferred by most doctors rather than just enough oxy to kill a horse to mask the kind of pain back injuries cause.  He could just be a piece of shiat, too, no doubt, but yeah, weird things can happen with prescription drugs.

I mean, was that really bad?  Did he do anything wrong?  I'm not sure I understand.  Aren't they his kids?  Either way, how do they prove the toddlers weren't responsible for drugging him and that they haven't blackmailed him into saying he took the drugs and alcohol voluntarily?  Why aren't those children sitting behind bars until we know for sure?  I, for one, will be double locking my front door from here on out.  If anybody comes knocking on my door, I'm calling the cops.  When the cops arrive I'll show them my knockers, but that's it.  And no way I'm letting them in the rear entry way.  If they're coming in, they're coming in through the front.

FTFA:

Defense attorney:

At a hearing Thursday, the man's defense attorney, Adam Haselgren, told the court his client had taken prescription medications and had passed out, but Haselgren said it was possible one of the children could have locked the girl in the dog crate while they were playing and then wandered outside.
"This is something that could happen to any parent or any baby sitter," he argued.


The judge:

But Caputo noted that police had to kick in the door to the house because it had been locked from the inside and doubted any of the children could have done that.
"Is a 3-year-old carrying a set of keys?"

Not discounting the tragedy, but at what point do you stop counting months and start calling them "years"? Is this a per family thing? Saying "22 months" instead of "nearly 2" or simply "2 years" seems a bit high to be referring to them as "X months."

OK, this guy is a major piece of shiat and should be punished accordingly, but:

But Caputo noted that police had to kick in the door to the house because it had been locked from the inside and doubted any of the children could have done that. "Is a 3-year-old carrying a set of keys?" Caputo asked...

Are they arguing the guy locked his kid out of the house on purpose? He was probably passed out on the couch when one kid fled the building and another 3-year-old locked the door. You don't need keys to lock a door from the inside. My daughter (3 years old) turns the deadbolt all the time.

i.dailymail.co.uk

Since 1989, Lewallen has been named in eight felony cases in four counties. He was to remain on probation until December 2013 after being convicted of second-degree burglary in Osage County in 2003. Last August, he was given a suspended sentence after pleading guilty to a Tulsa County charge filed last year of possessing a precursor with intent to manufacture methamphetamine.

So it's like "Breaking Bad" except with toddlers covered in their own sh*t sitting in dog cages.

sandi_fish: If the door was locked, does that mean he locked the kids out?


Unless the other 3 year old got a chair and locked the door.  My brother did that once when he was four, locking himself in a building, buying himself two hours of play before he was found.

I am not defending the guy, he should've set the kids up safe if he stood the chance of falling asleep.  If you don't have someone else at least make sure the kids are squared away.  No cages.

I am once again, reminded of the quote from Parenthood, wherein Keanu Reeves (I believe it was) said (and I'm paraphrasing), "you need a license to drive, a license to fish, but they'll let any butt-reamin' asshole be a parent."

Some people have demonstrated, through their utter lack of anything resembling common sense and parental instinct, that they should not be parents.  Those people ought to be sterilized so that no further children can spring from their loins.

Yeah, I thought of this earlier, and you reminded me of it even more.

FBI To Require Background Checks For Child-Care Providers

WASHINGTON, DC-Taking measures to improve the safety and welfare of America's children, the FBI unveiled a sweeping new program Monday mandating comprehensive background checks for all U.S. child-care providers.

Child-havers will continue to go unscreened. The program, which bureau officials hope will reduce child abuse and neglect, does not affect the nation's approximately 150 million child-havers. Said FBI director Louis Freeh: "To those who would prey on our nation's innocent children, this sends a loud, clear message: Get your own kids." ...

Brenda Furness, an unemployed Macon, GA, mother of seven, was equally pleased. "They definitely oughta run checks to make sure all them people who work with kids are qualified," said Furness, serving her children their usual dinner of mayonnaise on crackers and Dr. Pepper. "Who knows what kind of unfit people are looking after our children? Billy Joe, quit playing with that saw and get your ass to the table this second 'fore I knock the rest of your teeth out!"

Under the new program, convicted sex offenders and violent criminals are no longer eligible to work at daycare facilities. Such individuals, however, will still be eligible to serve as parents.

This.  It's harder to buy sudafed than it is to create and presumably be responsible for one to ten+ lives.  Just more evidence we live in a bizarro universe parallel to the happy, logical one.




Years ago, I went over to a co-worker's house to see if I could help him fix his car. I could tell this guy was a brain donor, but I was new on the job, and I thought I'd do him a favor. He had a pretty girlfriend, but it was a bad scene. At one point, I needed to ask him a question, and I couldn't find him. I walked into the house - no one around. I walked into a closed room, and there was his little boy (probably around two years old). It was just him and the pit bull. While the dog was really friendly, that doesn't matter; you never leave a little child alone with a dog, ever. He was a good little boy, and he stopped crying as soon as I picked him up. I finally found his parents, and handed him off to his mom.

They were constantly fighting, and they finally split up. Then they had a custody battle over the little boy that involved time off from work to go to court, borrowing money from relatives for a lawyer, etc. Some time after that was over, they got back together. I really felt sorry for that kid; nature or nurture, he really didn't have much of a chance.

8Fingers: Why are people that are pretty much by any measure that society uses. Irresponsibilty unable to function as normal members of life, so intent on reproducing?


Abstinence only education, politicians blocking education reform (educating women is the #1 way to prevent unwanted pregnancies), defunding educational programs such as Head Start, attacking groups that provide reproductive services (not just abortions) like Planned Parenthood thus placing a stigma on them, social leaders like pastors and civic leaders like politicians out-right saying birth control is wrong and a sin and not being vociferously challenged on it, etc. etc. etc.

The gist of my argument is any serious attempts to provide a positive change on this is being attacked and often end up watered down to the point where they're barely helpful if there at all.  And this was in Tulsa, so keep in mind that all that fire towards women's reproductive rights is x100 where these people are at.  Of course even if it all were different you'd still see this happen.  We just might see less of it.

And there are folks just desperate to have a child to love and raise. And then there are cretins such as this.

Some people should not have children.

Walker: The Associated Press is not naming the father to protect the child's identity

I'll name it. It's public record and in other articles: Parents Erin Lewallen, 27, and William Lewallen, 47, from Tulsa, were both arrested

Some of that really isn't such a big deal or that unexpected if you've ever spent time around a toddler. The neighbors daughter used to climb into their dog crate and close the door when she was about 18 months old. Just sit in the middle of the thing giggling to herself. They had to either lock it closed or block it open to keep her from doing that. At almost 3 now, she likes taking off her cloths and running around naked because she's figured out that she can get funny reactions from everyone if she does that. She's a smart little AW that's figured out everyone's buttons to push to get the reactions she wants.

Sweet Jesus. I put my two kittens in a dog crate for about 15 minutes twice a day so I can feed my senior cat special kidney diet food and I feel bad when I hear them crying.

Sorry, but if you are going to get drunk and pass out, at least get some locks on the door that children can't reach to keep them safe. We found a dog wandering around once and found the home by knocking on doors. The owner said the 3 year old kid let the dog out and they must not have noticed. Uh, if your 3 year old is opening the door and letting your dog run out, what is stopping them from going out? This isn't out in the country, there is a busy street about 10 feet away.

zulius: Not discounting the tragedy, but at what point do you stop counting months and start calling them "years"? Is this a per family thing? Saying "22 months" instead of "nearly 2" or simply "2 years" seems a bit high to be referring to them as "X months."


In this case saying 22 months makes the child seem much younger than saying two years.

Oh FFS.  Well, I guess you can't blame him for trying.

Wait, no.  I think you can.   ARE YOU FARKING KIDDING ME?!?

No really, this could happen to anyone who had taken a bunch of Oxycontin, Flexeril, and Dilantin and washed them down with beer.  I mean seriously, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, how could any reasonable person expect my client to take care of kids when he was that high?  My client is the real victim here!  The state is being completely unreasonable for expecting him to take care of young children in that condition!

If I ever need a lawyer, I'm calling you.


Only if the prosecutor is so stupid he/she fails to ask "Did the Oxy/Flexeril/Dilantin come with a warning not to take them with alcohol?" Because all of them do. And if your client can be shown to be so irresponsible as to ignore his doctor's instructions and take such powerful drugs with alcohol, counselor, how can the state in good conscience allow him to care for children? He's demonstrated his complete inability to behave in accordance with anyone's idea of responsibility!

It's a legal technicality. 22 months means more than likely you're going to jail (probably got X months for one charge and X months on another, and they're going to run consecutively). One year and 10 months means you're likely going to Big Boy Prison.

OK, I'm brain dead. I thought we were talking time in jail/prison, not the age of the child. It's only 9 p.m., but I obviously need to go to bed. Sigh.

3 year olds wandering around naked is pretty normal.

Having a 2 year old locked in a cage... not so much.

I've found the break point is 2 of a major unit. For instance: baby is 10 days versus a weekweek and a half. Then 7 weeks until they are two months. They are 12 to 23 months, then two years. Don't know why this is, but it's what i naturally did as a father. Never expect to make the jump to decades, though.

Well, it's a bit complicated, but basically boils down to how old and active they are, plus you gotta factor in your escape route, likelihood of pursuit, how fit the guardians/nannies are, etc.

Last summer the neighbor kid, 2 1/2 at the time, went through a spell of escaping when he was supposed to be napping with his Abuela, and running down the street. I took him home 3 times. They finally figured out where his escape route was.
These things can happen. The guy in TFA is an idiot if he is taking those kinds of meds when he is responsible for anything and chasing them with a beer is proof he should be sterilized.

Do you have door locks?  I do, and I can lock the door and then walk out of it.  Henceforth I will be on the outside, and the door will be locked from the inside.  PRESTO it's farking magic.

I also happen to know for a FACT that almost EVERY 3 year old can operate a standard door lock upto and including deadbolts.  (not usually keys though)

I think this is beside the point. If the guy was truly in such pain that he needed to take all three painkillers/sedatives at the same time and also had been drinking, he needed to find someone else in the neighborhood to take care of three toddlers. What about the neighbor who noticed the problem? She would have done it just to keep the kids safe.

I think it has something to do with the fact that kids undergo a number of important developmental milestones up until the age of about 2.  Describing their age in months gives a more accurate point of reference for the kinds of food the kid will be eating at the time, the kinds of cognitive and motor abilities that should be developing.  Past the age of 2 it matters a lot less.
