The knives comment was kind of stupid really. There are knives on my counter that could have been accessed when my kids were five.

For the rest of it, I understand, I don't agree with what she did, but I know right where she was.

TFA: Upon entering the residence, officers discovered a 15-month-old in a crib they initially believed to be dead. Once they removed the blanket covering the infant and rubbed her face however, they realized she was breathing.

28 years old, oldest of her five children is 12, ouch.  She's gonna be a granny in a couple years so maybe cut her a break here.

And the punishment is trying to extend her vacation.

Seconded. Any determined 3 year old can get at knives if they want.

28 with 5 kids, she must be good at sex or sucky with birth control. Hope she is never around kids again the rest of her life.

Of all the places to go, why the shiathole that is Myrtle Beach?
 
2019-03-10 08:54:54 AM  
That's disgusting. Revolting, really. Myrtle Beach?

Problem: Woman abandons her children for several days.
Solution: Force her to abandon them for 20 years.

"Mother of the Year candidate"

I think she's the front runner fer sure.

"According to the affidavit, police found a dirty diaper in the closet, stains on the carpets, and knives the children could have easily accessed."

JFC really, a diaper and stains on the carpet?! The horror!!!! Not condoning what she did but if that was everything they found then those kids were doing great on their own.

I had a good time as a kid at the "suburban" beaches, but myrtle beach is also the closest ocean beach drive to me.  She should at least stay in texas.

For the good of the children can you see a downside here?  Honestly what would you have offered up as a solution?  Chain them onto her?

I'd have solved this by throwing that 'abstinence based' birth control into the trash and bring in actually effective methods instead, nip the obvious problems in the bud.

The 12 year old has most likely been caring for the little ones for a few years now.

There has to be a better option. Where do you live?

She'll get the time she needs away from home and everything that's going on while she's in jail.

The draw of the Freaky Tiki was just too strong.

Is that still a thing? It's been a long time.

Theres obviously better, but not closer drive from Drews abode.  And being 2 miles from public parking and high rise condos and hotels makes a pretty good beach experience.  You can get that if you stay on the really thin peninsula that protects murrels inlet.

Yeah, for a twelve and ten year old taking care of a six, three, and one year old, they did pretty okay to be honest. I'm thirty and I'm not sure I could do much better than the odd diaper in the closet and dirty floor with five kids that age running around. At that point it's a good day if everyone is alive and fed by bedtime.

The biggest problem would be, with the twelve, ten, and six year olds at school (where the principal heard them talk about being alone), the three and one year olds were home alone. What were they eating? Did the one year old just stay in its crib all day until the big kids got home? Jesus, those poor kids.

I bought my daughter her first knife when she was four, and she used it regularly.  Never cut herself with it either.  Of course, she didn't get to use it unsupervised till she was 10.

I think, considering how many "mother of the year candidate" headlines we have, that we should actually have a contest or election at the end of each year. All the candidates, as mentioned in previous headlines, get lined up and we pick our Mother Of The Year.

Then we send her a little trophy.

Why not Charleston?  It's closer to Texas than myrtle beach.  I think her beachgoing decisions are a symptom of a larger problem here...

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: With that many, there are bound to be survivors.


Plus, it's pretty likely she was seeded with number 6 while on vacay, so it's not like there isn't a backup plan.

There was once a local newspaper story where somebody was arrested on a drug charge, and was found with 5 kids living like barn animals in filthy conditions.

Later there was a correction printed: "Our story misrepresented conditions in the home, they were actually typical of a house with 5 kids."

Well, I have a stain on my carpet from my son dropping cherry kool aid.   Looks like blood.  Sounds like maybe I should send my kids to grandma for a few days while I get my shiat together.

Most be. Another article I found mentioned she went in August, as opposed to a few days prior to being arrested.
 
2019-03-10 10:00:35 AM  
The male "friend" she stayed with is a real POS too. He let her stay with him knowing her kids were home alone.

Circusdog320: Pro lifers should champion her defense fund! 5 kids slid out of her birth canal..she done good!


These kids have been born. They are now enemies of the people.

Tucker Carlson has been portraying day care as the socialist state ripping children from the loving arms of their mothers.

except that isn't his job to take care of her kids. not saying he isn't a POS. maybe she lied to him and told him some friends or relatives were watching the kids.

So whst? When I was 12 I was in charge of a whole group of toddlers.

Most of them died in the mines, but still.

Is this a gun nut joke, or did you *actually* buy a 4 year old a knife?

First kid at 16? She's had no life of her own and probably has never really grown up.

Teach your kids about birth control.

I used to live in NC.  For many people in that area, as well as those elsewhere of certain social strata, Myrtle Beach is considered a classy, cultural mecca.
