No, they didn't. I mean, yeah, they gave them blankets, but not diseased blankets. The only documented case of that was proposed by a pre-revolutionary-war British general, and there's no evidence it was ever carried out.

Base salary for a Police Officer 1 in New Orleans is, last I checked, $23,500 per year. Obviously there are benefits, a pension program, etc., but $23.5k in New Orleans is not a high salary.

mekki: FTA:  Simmons told Acerra that because of the new bed, his back won't hurt anymore.

Jesus, a thirteen year old shouldn't be having back aches. I wonder how his first night in a bed was like. Waking up to a normal back.

Yeah, this is the type of story where this kid grows up to be a cop because of this officer reaching out to him and making him know that someone gave a damn. It's practically a Hollywood cliche.


Nah.  It's more like he was destined for a life of gang banging and violence that would go on to serve him well in his future rap career which would result in him getting killed in a drive-by, turning him into a legend, and that asshole cop put a stop to all that.

According to their website, MPDC starting pay is just above $48k, which is twice as much, sure. But I doubt officers all over the country make that much.

That's a kid who going to get out there and make things happen. I better stop that.

I know, I'll get him a Wii.

And some Cheetos.

That's the ticket, problem solved.

And gave him his cell phone number and said call anytime. And made arrangements to follow up with more things as needed and has told the boy's story to enough other folks that help is now coming to the family from other sources.

The best trolling is when you get people to bite without making yourself look mentally-challenged.

It never said how the kid's situation got to be so bad, or if there are other kids in the family.

I'm guessing that Mom's bedroom has a revolving door, that the parents are allergic to work, there's other kids by different babbydaddys, and that Mom has a history of selling the kids' things for crack money.

At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room thread is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

$5 says the kid's mom is a first class coot and pawns everything the nice officer just got her son.

/ I know a couple cops who put every extra penny they have into weekend meals for underprivileged kids. Basically, they give the kid a pack with enough food to last the weekend for the kid and his/her siblings. Most of the kids have to hide the food because their parents will take the food for themselves. These are the kids that only ever get the free school lunch.

It wasn't the US government.  Hernando DeSoto and his crew did. To be fair, they had no idea they were spreading smallpox. But the end result was an epidemic that spread from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes, possible wiping out 65% of the population between the Appalachins and the Mississippi.

I volunteer with a church that provides free meals during school vacations (6 churches and one synagog each take a day so the kids get 7 meal deliveries a week)  to kids that don't have anything to eat when there is no school.  Their parents disgust me.  Most of the time the kids will be sitting outside waiting on us to drive up, they will then gather up their younger siblings run and hide so their parents don't take the food for themselves.  The first week is the hardest as we often don't know how many preschool kids are in the house, so we will show up with 2 meals for 2 elementary students who will then make sure their 2 younger siblings eat. Believe me the next visits we will have extra meals.

/Each meal includes a sandwich, fruit, pudding cup and snack crackers plus a cereal bowl and carton of irradiated shelf stable milk for breakfast the next day.  It is sad that is all we can manage to provide for these kids.

I really wish there'd been a cop like that in my friends' life, growing up. Their Mom, step-dad and half-brother went to a steakhouse or really good buffet for dinner and then go bowling, maybe hit an arcade...


My friend was stuck at home, not allowed to eat ANYTHING in the house despite having had only one bowl of cereal that morning.. Just sit around, watch TV and play vids.. but hey, at least there was cable for the poor kid.


...Yeah, let's just say my friend is a  little screwed up in the head.. I'm pretty much one of five people who can stand them.


They're doing better, though.

That is farkin fantastic. Those are some good people. I grew up dirt poor, some of the parents around me were the type described. Taking shiat from their kids for themselves. Poverty is a real farked up thing and it has a circular effect that is mind blowing. Good kids lost hope, become just like their parents because they never learned anything better.
