  • Negligence heretofore unseen...and kids died

    Sadly, it isn't really heretofore unseen, but it's about as bad as it gets.

    This buffoon spent at least 13 minutes in a store while the kids were in her house unattended. Genius factor increased by leaving a burner on.

    Who's ready to get up a posse and go to Nigeria to get her? If her family is so concerned about the situation, she needs to face the music.

    197.00 for a Nigerian Visa.
    1729.00 for round trip flight.
    Look on her face as she realizes she is being chased, priceless.

      Maybe they'll send Tommy Lee Jones after her.

        Hopefully, she won't make it back alive.

        Just saying.

            Because she has rights!!!

            She may be a citizen; the article isn't clear on that. Either way, it's mighty easy for her to get in before she commits a crime, mighty hard to get her back afterwards.

              This just makes me sick, my wife and I are at the point where we are thinking about having children but how can you know someone you take your child to is not this lady?

              My mind is just whirling with all kinds of scenario's of do's and don'ts but nothing I really want to publish on the interwebs with my name on it...

              God bless the firefighters that where there though... I can't imagine how sick they must be after that. That is not a call that your going to be able to just forget.

                What a shame that this had to happen. Go get her so she faces the dead kids parents and jail time and if its in that state: death chamber!! Just saying!

                    Apparently this was a registered day care center, albeit in a home. By the sounds of it there had been no complaints. She got gigged for not having an extinguisher or a CO detector before the place opened, but those issues had apparently been resolved.

                    Her gross negligence and its result aside, the only issue they're looking at is whether she had more kids under her care than the law allows. Otherwise she was running a perfectly legitimate day care center, something I'd wondered about.

                    On the other hand, it appears that Tata was no stranger to fire.

                    To answer your question - in one respect, you don't. You owe it to yourself to research potential day care providers, including references, etc.

                    Even then, there are accidents.

                      Yes, my own two daughters spent a few years in day care each. Fortunately, they were at facilities inside schools, and one of them employed my wife's aunt. But most important of all, NOBODY LEFT THE KIDS UNATTENDED.

                        Everybody reading this thread should drop in on that story. In that context, it concerns me more than ever to think that she left a "pot of oil" on a hot burner and left the house.

                        And then left the country.

                          The whole "pot of oil", leaving the house and the prior arson? Its been a few years since I had a coloring book but I am starting to connect the dots here and what this is looking like, my brain doesn't understand how a human can do this.

                            Not trying to one up you, but.....

                            Here is a link to one of our, not to terribly long ago recipient of a Darwin award.

                            http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_u...&v=xx2McAGUF88

                            Hopefully that works, had to type it in manually due to technical difficulties.

                            At any rate, mother and Aunt locked two kids in the house. House caught fire. The first kid died that day at the scene, the other kid died within the next day or two.

                            The video shows the Aunt and momma being interviewed at the scene of the house fire. What were they worried about? When they could get inside to tget their food stamp card.

                            Management is making sure things are done right. Leadership is doing the right thing. The fire service needs alot more leaders and a lot less managers.

                            "Everyone goes home" is the mantra for the pussification of the modern, American fire service.


                            Comments made are my own. They do not represent the official position or opinion of the Fire Department or the City for which I am employed. In fact, they are normally exactly the opposite.

                              I think that's pretty much where everybody is on this one.
