Innocence

Implanting Indifference in Children’s Hearts

I can’t remember ever being in the wrong place at the wrong time.  This post is the first of it’s kind from this Editor, totally off the top of my head.  I can only imagine the look on the face of a certain man who writes with 2 instruments, a rapier and a 2-handed sword (wouldn’t you know it, he has a new friend that has the same style).

I was very prepared for this post early this morning, but I trusted my feelings (I had a teacher who looked as if I had thrown cold water on him,  when I said these words for the first time, he calmly set his rapier aside and said “You win, I’ll teach you Latin”).  The more research I did, the angrier I got, so here we are, shall we begin.

What are the virtues of a Good Parent?  One who accidentally gives their child a dose of morphine?  A parent who disciplines their young child by making her stand outside in the cold for 2 hours?  A parent whose babysitter is a hot car in summer temperatures?  A parent that believes drugs ruined America, and molests his children at night?  Or the lenient parents who let the child run wild, who now has an STD at a very young age? Or perhaps one of these: habitual liar, drinks alcohol, cusses every 4 words, uses drugs, violent, or somewhere down the road you find out your siblings are all dead…  Murdered Before They Were BORN.

I found something wrong with every site I selected for their “input” on virtues of a good parent, with the exception of maybe 2.  I Do Not believe in whipping a child like an animal (I purposely used these words..  I WILL warn you that if a certain person sees you mistreating an animal, you will never do it again), although if a child is given a rule from the the first moment they begin walking, like when they come in the kitchen while a meal is being prepared, and go to the hot cook stove.  If you are a wise parent, this will be an early rule, “no-no sweetheart hot hot, burn my Baby”;  sooner or later, if this continues to the point where you just got on this child for doing something else wrong, and you see the child out of the corner of your eye, glance at you and head straight for that stove, it’s action time.  What happens here is the beginning of making a spoiled brat, or a child who follows house rules, and GOD’S rules, Honor your Father and Mother..

It is NOT Good Parenting for a child to see or hear it’s parents do or say any of the above, nor see their parents do vile things.  No One on this Earth is completely innocent, but a child is as close as it gets, and it is WRONG to take this away from them.  I saw the statement “1 in 3 women will have an abortion in their lifetime”, then I noticed there is a “1 in 3 Campaign” which is a project of ADVOCATES FOR YOUTH?  Furthermore, their motto is “Rights, Respect, Responsibility?  These people are teaching Children that MURDER is OK.  I have got 1 thing to say to “ADVOCATES FOR YOUTH”, and anyone who takes the innocence of a Child.  If you believe in doing this to a Child, while you are teaching them INDIFFERENCE, teach them another language: De corde enim exeunt cogitationes malae, homicidia, adulteria, fornicationes, furta, falsa testimonia, blasphemiae:   Haec sunt, quae coinquinant hominem. Non lotis autem manibus manducare, non coinquinat hominem.

Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter

True Love

With this heart-warming post that I am very proud to repost, I will start our Good Parenting weekly Post.

After doing my customary speed-read of several of this Author’s Posts, I can honestly say it reads like a paper back Romance series. Although hard to just accept at face value, I had to read more; and now I believe this couple has what few couples have, true love and a bonding that will last a lifetime (I’m so happy for them).

I publicize nothing about my personal life, although just this one time I have to say this couple has a relationship like my own.  Children born in a family with a relationship like this are Blessed, but are becoming a very rare breed.

Children are The Future of This World, and deserve their chance to leave their mark, as they take their one-way trip through this life.

Justice System Too Harsh On Sex Offenders?

John Grisham Apologizes for Remarks on Child Porn

CNN – John Grisham is taking back statements he made about Child Pornography and Sex Offenders.

In a recent interview with the UK’s Telegraph, the lawyer and prolific author of books and Hollywood adaptations such as “The Firm,” “The Pelican Brief” and “A Time to Kill” sparked outrage when he expressed his belief that some people who view child pornography online are receiving punishments that don’t match the scale of the crime.

“We have prisons now filled with guys my age, 60-year-old white men, in prison, who’ve never harmed anybody (and) would never touch a child,” Grisham said during a conversation about high U.S. prison rates. “But they got online one night and started surfing around, probably had too much to drink or whatever, and pushed the wrong buttons and went too far and got into child porn. … They deserve some type of punishment, but 10 years in prison?

“There’s so many of them now, sex offenders … that they put them in the same prison, like they’re a bunch of perverts or something.”   He then used an old law school friend as an example:  “I have no sympathy for a real pedophile. But so many of these guys don’t deserve harsh prison sentences. A friend of mine, this was 10 years ago, was drinking, and his drinking was out of control. And he went to a website, and it was labeled, 16-year-old wannabe hookers or something, some stupid website. And it said 16-year-old girls. So he went there and downloaded some stuff.

“It was 16-year-old girls that look 30…  He shouldn’t have done it. It was stupid. But it wasn’t 10-year-old boys, and he didn’t touch anything.”  To Grisham’s recollection, the website his friend visited was actually a sting operation to capture sex offenders. He said his friend was then sent to prison for three years.  Those comments and the nature in which Grisham discussed the very serious issue of child pornography incited a flood of hurt, disappointed and angry reactions from fans.

“The day that you came out in an interview and said that watchers of child porn get too stiff of a penalty for it (you said 10 years was too much) makes you someone that I cannot support nor no longer want to read,” a reader named Kendra Benefield Lausman shared on Grisham’s Facebook page; another posted that she’s taken her entire Grisham library to her “burn barrel” with the intent to set the books on fire.  “How do you think child porn is made?” a poster named John Kelly asked on Grisham’s page. “Someone is still getting hurt you imbecile. I’m sad to say that I will never purchase, nor consume, one of your books ever again. I am disgusted.”  After the uproar began, Grisham issued an apology.

“Anyone who harms a child for profit or pleasure, or who in any way participates in child pornography — online or otherwise — should be punished to the fullest extent of the law,” the author said in a statement. “My comments made two days ago during an interview with the British newspaper The Telegraph were in no way intended to show sympathy for those convicted of sex crimes, especially the sexual molestation of children. I can think of nothing more despicable. I regret having made these comments, and apologize to all.”

That may not be enough for some of his former followers.  “You clearly said in the interview that people (like your drunk friend) who look at child porn don’t deserve severe punishment,” Facebook user Raylene Jolly Wheeler posted in response to Grisham. “Not sure how you can backtrack that statement.”

 

Plea Deal in 3 Year Old Girl’s Death

Iowa Day Care Provider Avoids Life Sentence

Orange City, Iowa An Iowa woman admitted Thursday to causing the head injuries that killed a 3-year-old girl at her in-home day care, but avoided a life sentence under a plea agreement with prosecutors.

Rochelle Sapp of Orange City pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and child endangerment resulting in the death of Autumn Elgersma. Sapp told the court that she dropped the toddler to the ground. She also entered an Alford plea to child endangerment with multiple acts, meaning she did not admit guilt to that charge but conceded there was enough evidence to convict her of injuring the girl three other times over the prior eight months.

Prosecutors dropped a first-degree murder charge, which would’ve been an automatic life sentence for Sapp. Second-degree murder would’ve required a minimum of 35 years behind bars.  Instead, Judge Edward Jacobson sentenced Sapp to an indeterminate sentence of up to 100 years as called for in the plea agreement. That means there is no mandatory minimum, and it will be up to the Iowa Board of Parole to decide when to release Sapp.

Drake University law professor Bob Rigg said Sapp, 34, will serve “significant time” behind bars but nowhere near 100 years. He said her actual sentence might be around 15 to 20 years, based on the board’s prior practice for similar offenses.  Rigg said Sapp received a “significant concession” when prosecutors didn’t pursue a murder charge. In turn, she gave them a major concession by admitting to other crimes and avoiding a trial.  Prosecutors made the plea agreement public Thursday after keeping it secret since its Oct. 10 signing.

The case dates to Oct. 29, 2013, when Sapp called Autumn’s mother to say the girl was out of it after falling down the stairs when she went to play in the basement. Autumn’s mother left work and took the girl to a nearby hospital, where doctors diagnosed her with serious head injuries and had her airlifted to a South Dakota hospital. Doctors discovered a fractured skull and serious brain trauma. The girl died two days later, and a medical examiner ruled it a homicide.

Court records show that after failing a polygraph, Sapp changed her story about the girl falling down the stairs and told a detective she slammed the toddler to the ground after becoming angry because Autumn was having trouble taking off her coat.  DayCareProviderDeath-2014-10-18-1Sapp had argued that confession — and incriminating text messages police discovered after she let them search her phone — should have been suppressed. She argued she had not been read her Miranda rights and had barely eaten or slept for two days.  But Jacobson ruled Thursday that the confession and her consent to the phone search were voluntary, and that investigators “treated the defendant quite well.”
