SnakeLee: It says: According to court records, Alexandria's mother has a medical condition that does not allow her to be left alone with her own child and Hill's marijuana use had become so bad he almost dropped his daughter down the stairs.
cwolf20: Ok farkers. According to the article, the writer can see the future. We have almost 3 months to find the child and save her. It's not November 2013 yet.
Oznog: [austinmugs.com image 480x600]http://austinmugs.com/mug/joshua-hillWell, 05/31/2013 he was booked for Assault with Bodily Injury: Family Member.No further details on the incident, doesn't look there's been a court case yet. But a booking can be part of a reason for CPS to do a removal, and it hasn't been mentioned yet.
robrr2003: Moral of the story.. If you love your kids you wont do drugs live in Texas.You cant do both
SlothB77: hmmm:The parents, who are not together, handed Alexandria to Hill's mother to care for - until the state intervened on November 26th.According to the Department of Family and Protective Services, the family disagreed who should take custody of the girl and decided to involve the CPS themselves - until both mom and dad got their lives in order.big mistake there.
dittybopper: pmdgrwr: so can cps take your child if you were speeding in a car with the child in it? I mean speed is breaking the law and endangering a child so it would seem fitting for cps to remove a child from that situation.For 10 or 20 MPH over the limit? Doubt it.Going 130 MPH? Maybe. Especially if it's a young kid and not in a car seat.
I_Am_Weasel: Joshua Hill's daughter, Alexandria, was taken from him and his wife in November 2013 because they smoked pot in their Round Rock, Texas home while their child slept.There seems to be more to this story than they're reporting.
dukeblue219: Chummer45: And the saddest part is, this kind of overzealous bullshiat - where the authorities ruin someone's life because they smoked a joint - goes on all the time.Maybe read the other comments to see the full story. This wasn't about some wonderful parents who happened to smoke a joint from time to time.// Still tragic...
PunGent: I_Am_Weasel: Joshua Hill's daughter, Alexandria, was taken from him and his wife in November 2013 because they smoked pot in their Round Rock, Texas home while their child slept.There seems to be more to this story than they're reporting.Eh, as long as they kept their time machine locked while the kids were around, it's good.
dittybopper: /We only do temporary "respite" care now.
naughtyrev: Yeah, I have to agree with that. At face value this one doesn't quite pass the sniff test.
