This one is not for the faint of heart…
This is a special edition of A Moment With Morris. This is part of an ongoing series I affectionately titled "A Cold Cup of Coffee". Bringing you real life without the sweeteners, a cold and sometimes bitter, but always necessary sip of reality. This time we're looking at, Breeders.
If you are familiar with “A Moment With Morris” then you know I address parenting on a rather consistent basis. This isn’t about the usual, nonexistent or incompetent parent. This is about this new breed, this new breed of selfish, self serving, ignorant, useless parent. I’m taking a breather from my normal attempts at humor to bring you a truly cold cup of coffee.
Over the last couple of weeks, more than just a few horrific stories were brought to my attention, all involving young children. It seems as though the value of human life is at an all time low, and children are at the bottom of the clearance rack. These are all unspeakable tales, done either directly or indirectly by their parents. This is designed to bring light to this new generation of breeders. That's right, not parents, breeders. And they need their privilege revoked.
Like I said, this is not for the faint of heart. If you want to stop reading, I understand. For the rest of you, take a deep breath…don’t worry, I’ll wait…
Here we go. Recently in Fairfield, CA a woman stabbed her 3 yr old twin daughters to death before attempting to take her own life.
In Brooklyn, NY a 3 yr old was thrown out of a 7th floor window by his mother’s roommate, allegedly because the child was getting on her nerves.
In Virginia, a 2 1/2 yr old was thrown over a fifth floor mall balcony by their very own grandmother for no apparent reason.
The official “Breeder” award goes to a father in Jacksonville, FL. While temporarily out one afternoon, he left the care of his child to his girlfriend. She had been in the child’s life since he was 3 months old, so babysitting was common. Upon arriving home, the father found his child unresponsive on the floor. He then went to his girlfriend, who was unconscious in the bathroom. Failing to fully revive her, he grabbed his lifeless son and went to the hospital.
Apparently his girl friend is a recovering heroin user and is trying to kick the habit, with methadone, a synthetic opioid (watered down heroin). For some odd reason she decided to take her fix while watching this breeder’s child. On top of that, all of the dishes must have been dirty because she put the methadone, in a sippy cup. After taking her “medicine”, she passed out, leaving the 2 yr old with free reign of the home. He found the cup on top of a 4 foot dresser and drank. He ingested 80mg of methadone and died in the hospital. The woman was arrested and charged with aggravated manslaughter.
After reading this I’m sure you’re thinking the same thing I was…WTF? All of these parents cost their children their lives, and need their asses kicked. For the mother in Fairfield who stabbed her twin daughters to death, but suddenly lacked the conviction to finish the job on herself…there’s a special place in hell waiting for you.
The roommate that was so annoyed that she tossed a 3 yr old out of a 7th story window…my only question is, “why weren’t you tossed immediately afterwards?” I know that is a terrible lost for that mother, but what were you thinking moving someone that unstable into your home? This tragedy is your fault just as the roommate’s for putting that child in that situation. It’s your job and responsibility to screen who’s around your children.
Grandma flipping out at the mall was a “left fielder” I know, but as her child, one of those parents should have known their own mother. At least well enough to know her mental state and well being.
For the father in Jacksonville, you need to be beaten…slowly. How could you allow your child to be watched by a junkie? She got high and passed out leaving your child alone and defenseless. The part that kills me is, he later went on to give an interview stating that he was still standing by her. He said that she loved his son as if he were her own and would never have intentionally hurt him. Are you out of your f*cking mind! Your son is dead because of her dumbass and you want to play captain and save her?!? What is wrong with people? I just don’t understand.
If you’re a parent of anything; a blue jay, German Sheppard, or human being, your job is to raise a self sufficient, independent, offspring that can survive and thrive without you. But that all begins with nurturing and PROTECTING it! Whitney said that she believed, “that children are the future…”, what kind of future will it be if we place no value on those who are going to create it?
If you’re not ready to give 100 percent all day everyday to the job and duty of raising your children…DON”T HAVE ANY!!! This one isn’t about jokes, this is serious. We are made to take tests and get permits and licenses for everything from fishing to extensive dog house building, but anyone can have children. Some countries take away the right to have children based upon their nation’s resources.
If better decisions aren’t made, don’t be surprised if one day that right is taken from you…maybe it does take sacrifice to bring about appreciation…how many children need to be sacrificed for you?
No more Breeders! Let's bring back PARENTS!
