(Sun Sentinel)   Mother ditches her children so she can enjoy some peace, quiet, and drinks at a local bar. That's not the worst of it; no, that came when she decided to fight police and paramedics in the parking lot of a restaurant   (sun-sentinel.com) divider line 33

She refused offers to call a taxi or someone who could pick her up, telling one Palm Beach Gardens officer to take her home himself. He asked how she could afford drinks at the restaurant if she didn't have money and she said, "Look at me, I don't need money," according to the report.

Sassy!  I like this one.

She looks like Nancy Botwin's younger sister, if Nancy had a younger sister.

Grooms slipped out of her handcuffs and got out of the patrol car by reaching through the window and opening the door. Officers had left the window cracked because of her anxiety issues. Again, it took several minutes and three officers to get her back in the car

oh yeah. I want to party with this one.

Grooms? I doubt it...

Hey, parents need a break too.  She birthed them; she has a God-given right to raise them how she sees fit.  Maybe if the government got out of raising kids, families like these would realize their full potential and we can finally see taxes go down.

Hmmm. I have a 10 year old and I'll allow him to stay in the house alone for short periods like a run to the grocery store or the bank. He's intelligent enough to know not to stick shiat in the light socket or cook a pot roast. Hell, he can probably cook salmon better than I can. I understand, depending on the time of night that they might need to charge her with neglect, coupleed with the fact that she went somewhere to drink as opposed to making a quick run but I don't think the kids were in imminent danger.

So her looks can get her free drinks at a bar but she's not good looking enough or has the personality to attract a boyfriend or stay in a relationship with her children's father?

I can have understanding of this. You do not get between the drunken mother and the child of she. This is because the motherly instinct has the accentuation after the utilization of the ethanol. It is the thing which has much establishment in the community of science as you probably have awareness of. For the example:

DeLong, H.C., Fountain, J.L., & Yessif, M. (2011). Drunken mothers: a test of critical defense hypothesis.  Journal of General Psychology, 48, 211-223.

Gregg, M.P., & Salvatore, M.P. (2000). A prospective study of alcohol and mother's defense of children. Journal of Evolutionary Psychology, 83, 182-201.

I believe she has the power of defeating the charges which are received by she if she simply gets the expert testimony.

Raising kids is hard these days, when you have to work 2-3 jobs just to make ends meet. Labor laws and the "8 hour workday" mean nothing when you work your "8 hour" (which is really 10 hour) job, then have to go work another 4-6 hours at night. Repeat 6 days a week and yeah, people eventually get overwhelmed.

Now, tell the one again how the police treat a pretty white lady the same as they would treat a black lady.

The two [children], who said they'd been alone for a half-hour to an hour, were picked up from the home because, by that time, Grooms was in jail.

Their mom works pretty fast.
 
2014-01-03 10:49:44 AM
If she went to the store or something I think it would be ok to leave them alone for a short while but to go to a bar to get drunk? What could she be thinking.
 
2014-01-03 11:02:04 AM
Apparently leaving your kids to get drunk or dropping them off at school while drunk is a thing in Florida... Story after story!

And, I've got two boys, now 13 and almost-11.  When my older one was 10, I would leave him alone every now and then for quick runs, too -- no problem.  But, my younger one -- no, he's not going to be left alone for a while, yet.  Kids are different.  You can't just go by age.

Its not just parents.  When my daughter was going to daycare one of the teachers was caught going out to her car for a flask at lunch.  Apparently the breakfast alcohol didn't last all of the way until 5PM.

Yeah when me and my brother were 10-11 the folks would let us be alone. My sister not a chance in hell.

he walked toward the car anyway and, when the officer told her not to drive, screamed and challenged him to arrest her, which he did out of concern she'd "kill someone if not herself," the report said.

I wanna party with that chick!

That's a fact. First 2 kids, no problem at that age. The youngest - no way. For some reason it seems that the third kid always does things that the first 2 never dreamed of. Other parents have mentioned the same thing - we call it 3rd child syndrome.

On the plus side, she wasn't actually charged with DUI, because the cop probably realized that he couldnt actually let her get in the car and drive away without getting into trouble himself.
 
2014-01-03 11:50:13 AM
Ain't nothing funnier than a drunk thrashing, kicking and screaming at the cops and telling them what they're job is and how to do it. Throw in the classic "You're a public servant and I pay your salary" and you've got a winner right there.

True. i tell hiim all of the time that he does not have anywhere near the freedom that I had when I was his age. We could catch the Metro bus pretty much wherever we wanted. My friends and I used to go from DC into Maryland whenever we had a little money in our pockets to go to an arcade called the Golden Dome. We'd also walk the two or three miles down to the junkyard to find things for our clubhouse. He can't do any of that shiat. I'm not comfortable with it.

My brother and I used to walk through the drainage pipes at my dad's apartment complex, then up the block to the nearby strip mall, and spend all day doing that.  When we visited my grandparents', we would hang out at the junkyard, amazed by the treasures others threw away.  But, now, I wouldn't even let my boys play with our closest neighbors' kids, because I have absolutely no doubt they're headed for (if not already in) juvi.  (Well, that plus the local drug house up the street.)

A friend said she took her 12-year-old son on the bus recently to get him used to the schedules, so he could work up towards his own freedom and transportation.  The VERY FIRST time he went on the bus, he witnessed a stabbing.  That's a trauma he's not going to get past anytime soon.  Not at his age.

Now, we've got other neighbors who let their toddlers (as in, still in diapers!) walk around outside with no adult in sight.  Sometimes, one will walk down the street a ways.  Again . . . NO . . . ADULT . . . SUPERVISION.  I just don't get it.

Where do you think the stabbers and drug dealers come from?

We have two kinds of poverty in this country.

One is the under-educated, living paycheck-to-paycheck, got laid off or made a few mistakes, and stuck in a debt-cycle kind of poverty.  That can be ameliorated, at least on a generation-to-generation cycle. Better nutrition, better schools (better career & guidance counseling!!!!!), better overall economy, EITC, eliminate the predatory lenders through regulation & social pressure. Honestly, I don't know why churches, unions, etc. aren't implementing micro-finance programs and old-fashioned mutual aid societies in the US.

The other is the pathological permanent underclass culture. No supervision, then harsh discipline. In and out of prison. No nuclear family structure to speak of, kids are used as bargaining chips or seen as baggage. Short of taking their kids away, what are you going to do? It's possible for the really bright and motivated kids to bootstrap themselves out, or for the Army to straighten some of them out, or for the Jaime Escalantes of the world to pull a few up every year. But what about the huge swaths in Appalachia, the urban ghettos, the deep South, and the suburban rust belt?
