Parents of year nominees for sure.
I was going to make a joke but, that's so seriously fucked up.
I sure do remember my first beer. . . Mmmmmmm. . .
She appears to be a model citizen
I had my first glass of wine when I was about 9ish and I bought my first 30pack when I was 16 I believe. I had some black chick called "Punkin" buy it for me. Surprise surprise right?
oh come on, kids do that shit all the time. so does my dog, its a running joke around here not to leave open glasses of booze around because the dog will get into it. if you think about it, less than one beer will give a baby that high of a BAC, so, your boozing it up, or even just having a few drinks, you get up to take a leak and leave the kid, he grabs your drink then finishes it, or even takes a few swigs, you come back and dont even think about were half your beer or drink went. i did it when i was 5 or 6, my parents took me to a family party i was wandering around picking up drinks and finishing them off or just drinking out of them, im drunk walk into a little girl on a swing then get smashed in the face and end up in the ER with a concussion, drunk at 5. kids will be kids, i dont think thats negligence on the part of the parents, now if they were all passed out drunk and the house burned down...... drinking isn't illegal yet, and kids getting into shit they shouldn't is nothing new, this is just a case of a slow news day, and over zealous prosecutors
Li'l Billy Madison's party
Were they worried the kid was gonna drive?
So too does her boyfriend
[Wayne Campbell] Does this guy know how to party or what! [/WC]
Fixed that news story for ya, Kris!!!
i would be more pissed that there was a coon in the wood pile than my baby being drunk......
Wow that is pretty fucked up.
Guess they would have taken me away from my dad, he gave me a glass of beer when I was 5 or 6. Let's just say mom was not pleased.
The kid handled the same amount of alcohol better than Matt Roloff.
But you'd hit it anyway. . . right????
. . . And hit that bell for me, will ya?
That's the first fucking thing I thought, too.
Some one was telling me back in the day, that if a kid was teething they would rub some Jim Beam or JD on their gums. That would be child abuse now I guess.
I'm not comparing it to what these obviously upstanding parents did.
ummmm, no, i would not hit it. that is soiled
and ding ding ding for both of us
There's a big difference between being drunk at 5 and being drunk at 11-months, Fez. An 11-month old is barely walking yet (I think-it's been awhile since I've had to deal with that milestone) & even if he is walking, he's not walking well enough to walk to a table, grab a glass and stand there & drink from it. Most 11-month olds are either using baby bottles or sippy cups.
But okay, let's say that the baby did somehow manage to get hold of a bottle of beer or a glass of whatever white trash in Indiana drink, mommy doesn't notice the kid is unresponsive? Step-daddy doesn't notice either? Yeah, it doesn't take much to give the kid a high BAC. According to an article read a few minutes ago, a 15-pound person who consumed 2 ounces of 80-proof (40 percent) alcohol would have a BAC of .385
No matter how the kid got the alcohol, how is it that they don't notice his not being responsive? There's a big difference between a kid being quiet and a kid being nonresponsive. What if the father hadn't come to visit the kid? It's quite possible if he was that ill, he'd be dead or suffering from some kind of dain bramage.
Both the mother and step-father gave conflicting reports - he supposedly admitted drinking beer around the child and claimed the infant might have consumed alcohol without anyone knowing. Mother denied anyone was drinking in the presence of her child....that raises a red flag, at least in my head - they can't get their stories straight. Plus, according to another article I found later, the step-father is far from a candidate for citizen of the year, let alone step-father of the year:
Yes, when I was teething, my grandparents or my parents would rub whiskey on my gums. But today that's totally unacceptable and if it's discovered the parents would have to be reported to CPS
im such an awful parent i dont remember when my boy started "toddling" around the house, but im sure it was less than a year old,. dont get me wrong, she should be prosecuted for looking awful and having that tat on her neck not to mention ummm the un desirable living in her home.... ya think she hates her daddy?
Shouldn't that alone be grounds to lose custody of your children and have them given to the other parent?
