NO MORE RUTTING!
I understand the challenges faced by single moms, I was raised by one (and I was a troublemaker), but it's no excuse. If you can't do your job, let
someone else do it.
The state can't do the job either, BTW, so I'm no suggesting the state should raise kids for citizens who are unwilling or unable. But there are
plenty of good mothers in the world who, for whatever reason, don't have children, or can't have them.
If the rutting doesn't stop, we're seriously going to have to consider doing something drastic with all these neglected kids. Putting them in the
care of the state is not the answer, we have to solve the problem ourselves, leave big brother out of it. Let someone who actually care take up the
responsibility and raise the child.
We need a network to connect people who have kids and don't want them/shouldn't have them, and parents who could actually care for these children.
The standards should be tough, but fair, common-sense things like this situation - obviously no good parent falls asleep and lets their child run into
the road. Phsyical abuse, malnourishment as a result of drug addiction or neglect on the part of parents (not simple poverty), neglect of this
magnitude - all good reasons to take a child away.
I saw a picture of this little boy, wearing his superman t-shirt. What did he do to deserve this life? :shk:
And then there's mom, who didn't even seem to give a damn.
Many of these bad parents would pitch a fit if you tried to take their child away - but why? If you can't do your job, step aside and let someone
competent take over. Maybe they are just operating on instinct, or maybe they're afraid of losing the welfare check.
Ugh, these stories never fail to make angry and ashamed. I'm ashamed! They should be ashamed too!
