Child Found Lost In Wise County

Fox 4 News had a story tonight on a child found today on a rural road in Wise County. Notes: - Our Sheriff makes another appearance (who is his press agent? - he/she is a genius) - It is a crying shame anyone has to live in the conditions shown - The guy that found her said, "I'm just glad I came along" - You know, I was going to give him a little grief about that but, after a few seconds thought, I agree. The news story on youtube is here.

Imagine that Wise County on the news. Barry, I am glad that the guy came by, rather than a dirt bag that would abuse the kid. The mother should be hung. From a mother with kids, HANG HER ASS SHERIFF

Barry, I want to be the Sheriff's press agent. Do you have his phone number?

Child "found lost" in Wise County???

Three thoughts:

I agree with 7:54 - where was dear mother?...........jail her.

And hey Barry, try thinking a bit more like a human than a lawyer.

And more power to the sheriff. Wise County should take seriously caring for our children.

I am VERY curious what Walker's future political plans are. I wonder if he has governor in his sight. President, maybe?
Vote David Walker for President....
Hmmm...First lady is pretty powerful. I've always thought that Walker was extremely cute! Hey Walker, how you doing?

8:54, why would he want a Wise County sow?

And is that place in the picture that trailer on the side of 287 next the John Deere dealership in Rhome? haha

Barry, why do you always feel sorry for people who live in those kind of conditions? I would probably not be wrong in saying that people who do (with some exceptions, of course), do so because they choose to live that way. Other things are more important to them than their living conditions. Obviously, these parents weren't responsible at all if their child ended up in the road...why does it surprise you that they lived that way?

8:54 - I am VERY curious as to Rick Coiffure Perry's plans for the future.

Can we spell P R E S I D E N T?

Just what we need. Another stupid Texan in Washington.

8:54 you are right, Walker for President. I am in San Antonio and look at the Sheriff's web site a lot, as well as this BLOG. Barry you are great! Call you bud, the avid BLOG reading Sheriff and see if he will auction off a date for charity. I am a lawyer as you are, and can afford a lot. I think it would bring a lot of money for some charity in Wise County. Hell I would drive up from San Antonio.

This isn't much different from the case of the child that wandered off in Johnson county a while back. At that time, some folks on this blog were defending it as an "accident," and "these things just happen." These things don't just happen. It's called responsible (or irresponsible in this case) parenting.

11:10 - AMEN!

When Barry mentions anything about poor people...it really brings out the idiots that love to say "it is their choice" when they don't even know that person's situaton. They have a very small world view and no real understanding of poverty. Let's keep in mind that Barry is a smart, educated man and he has a deeper understanding of certain issues unlike some folks that comment on this blog.

I agree with the Johnson County deal. As a prosecutor, I think even if the mother does not go to jail or prison, you still have to show that this behavior will not be allowed.

12:41 - I agree that Barry is smart and likely understanding, but not all highly educated folks in professional fields are sensitive to the poor and uneducated.

Uh Hah....poor is one thing and illegal immigrants are another.

Oh, brilliant. Prosecute the Johnson County mother even if you don't expect to win. Waste some more precious judicial resources to do some self-righteous grandstanding. And I'm sure it will send a real big message to all those napping mothers that they'd better WAKE UP!!!

Where's the common sense around here?

betty boop said...

12:41, I am in the same line of business as Barry and see people every single day who choose to live the way they do, and it's all within their control to change it, so I don't speak without knowledge. I am not an "idiot" as you so boldly declare. You say I say those things and I don't even know the people, and you say people like me are idiots, yet you don't know us, a little contradictory don't you think?...it's a blog, and I, like you, am entitled to my opinion without being called an idiot. And just because Barry is smart and educated does not make him have a deeper understanding of poverty, that sentence in itself makes no sense at all. If you read all of my comment, you would see that I said there were exceptions. I do not claim to be an expert on the subject, but I get sick of these people that say they are "poor", yet can afford to buy their marijuana, alcohol, cigarettes, and so on. Or people that live off of the government and are as able bodied to work as I am...

Just another scandalous, skanky story from Wise County, you scandalous, skanky Wise Guys. You all must know, you and your Sheriff, are world re-knowned.

First of all, This mother should be punished. At least the Johnson County mother knew that her child was missing and called police. This mother thought someone was supposed to be watching her child. She left this child while the babysitter was sleeping? I wander how long it took before any of the family members knew that "katie" was gone. Sad situation.

12:58 No shit.

It's not just about being educated...it's about being educated on certain issues.

God forbid a poor person spend any of their money on marijuana, cigarettes, or alcohol. According to some, I guess poor people are supposed to be immune to these addictions/pleasures or whatever.

It drives me insane how some people defend the poor. Facts:

Low income people by more lottery tickets.

A higher percentage of low income people smoke.

Low income people are more likely to use services such as pay day loans or cash advances.

So basically they have less money to waste but they waste more.

Betty Boop...The parents may choose to live that way, but, the children are being physically neglected and that is against the law.

Betty Boop - so you think folks (poor) who live the way they do live that way because they choose to? How can we KNOW how it feels to be poor and LIVE that way if we are comfortable, paying our bills, have a good job, two kids in no trouble and are respectable in the community?

We cannot know. But one thing we can know. Folks who somehow find the money for cigarettes, alcohol or drugs, and do other dispicable things, such as having sex with their children, do so for very very complex reasons. And history DOES repeat itself. Children who grow up in these situations think that's the way life is - so they become "repeat" offenders - if you will.

How that cycle is broken is the question that has always been asked.

We know the answer as a society. Change behavior.

Give us YOUR ideas of how to break the cycle.

Where is the goats in that picture?

The answer is not to change behavior! Society needs to change! Any person educated in the social science area understands this.
