Cleaning Out Your Closet- In Public

I think what sat so badly with the case mentioned in the previous post, was the complete irreverence the mother had. She talked of the possibility of aborting her child as if she were deciding what pair of heels to wear to the bar. Even people that aren't governed by a strong sense of right & wrong can usually be coralled by thoughts of embarassment. A mother that secretly wished that she did know so that she could have made another choice- I wouldn't expect her to want the world to know just how little she thinks of her living breathing daughter. The insignificance of this young woman's life compared to the opportunity to maybe cash in on 10 million. It's daunting to see someone not even care just how badly they are perceived by those around them.

The fact that this creature is now forced to care for her daughter as part of her plea agreement, well it was a way to get a confession. Leaving the girl in her mother's care, I worry for her emotional well-being. So much resentment already exists within them both, forcing them together each day hardly seems fair to the daughter.

One of the many things running through my mind on loop.

A case in point of "the sins of the parents being visited on the children" - to paraphrase. You can only work with what you have, Bobby. You and the DA made the best deal you could with what you had within your power to enforce. It is hard to accept that you cannot control things like this - no more than you could control what happened to you as a child. It is unfair, it is unjust - and it is worth the time and pain of being enraged by it . . . Sending blessings for the struggle.

Do you really think forcing her to care for her child is the best thing to do?

She might do it for awhile...But she'll fall into the same old thing, darling.

And that's what keeps you awake at night.

Knowing that woman will one day stop caring for that girl. And the innocent will suffer.

Really Bobby. You put so much on yourself.

All that, and for what?

Nicole, we will hope that by the time she falls back into old habits, Drew will be out of jail.

For what? For the girl whose mother never cared. For your daugther. For all the victims of the horrible crimes.

Someone has to care. Who better than people who have the biggest hearts in the world?

Bobby, Alex didn't look to hot during the case. I think it hit her more than usual. Maybe you should check up on her.

Lots of love Bobby!

Rev is right, Bobby- you can only work with what you have, and unfortunately in our line of work, more often than not, things don't work out for the best.

I agree with the punishing the daughter part, that mother is being inflicted on her daughter.

I saw the case in question. It most def stinks that this WOMAN has to now care for a child she obviously does not wish to.

*sigh*

At the rest of sounding like UnStabler, times like this I think the wrong person got killed...

I can tell you that woman was a cold hearted snake that money she was sueing for wasn't for her Daughter it was for her as had everything been in her life.

This is just one of the many instances in which the law and conscience do not coincide. Does Carter sleep better at night because she is guaranteed compulsory care by an indifferent parent (and who knows better where this gets you, Bobby) or...do we as the public place our faith in the power of justice to prevail over minor details? And your use of the word...creature...is representative of the inhumanity that I imagine most of us...want...to feel.

You are soo understanding and empathetic to people.. You are very compassionate and kind..It's quite obvious that some people shouldn't be mothers or fathers. A child is a gift. a very blessed gift. She only saw that child as a way to get rich quick and as a burden.. It's sooo sad.. when there are soo many people out there who would do anything to concieve or have a child. and they can't, and those that do, some anyway, take advantage cause they can.

You did the right thing, and you finally made the son realize how much his sister would hurt and be worth if his mother was left in her care. It seemed like he was the only one that cared. She deserves a far better life than the one she was dealth with and to be treated with respect and love than what she got with her mother.

I hope she gets what she needs in this life. God knows she certainly deserves it.

hugs to you Bobby
