The Moronic Guide to Child Safety

Deputies Find Girls Bed Wrapped in a Cage

Parents Use Wire Mesh to Keep 4-Year-Old in Bed

Parents Charged

911 received a call related to a domestic dispute and dispatched officers to the scene shortly after midnight.  The caller, 34-year-old Russell D Terry, told officers he awoke on the couch being choked with an extension cord by his girlfriend, 32-year-old Jaime M Curnell, because she was mad he’d been out drinking all night.  She told them he had been throwing things all around the house.

While police were there they noticed the house was filthy and there was a bunk bed with a makeshift cage around the bottom bunk, complete with a door, latching hook, and deadbolt that could only be opened from the outside.

When police questioned the two about the cage they stated that their 4-year-old little girl got up at night so they put her in there for her own safety.  She had been sleeping there for about 3 months.  She was not in it when the police were there.

When this case hit the news I read one article and saw one picture of the cage.  In that article it stated the Sheriff had said there were no signs of abuse or neglect.

After researching the tip I saw this picture:

That’s when I noticed the nasty bared mattress, the unfinished wall that is peeling.  The general condition of the room that can be seen in both pictures is horrid!!  If that isn’t neglectful I don’t know what is.  That mattress was so filthy it should’ve been burned and they couldn’t even be bothered to put a sheet on it…

These lazy, dysfunctional asshats didn’t lock this child in a cage to keep her safe it was most likely done to keep her out of their way.  That way they could drink, fight, throw shit and not be bothered by her running around!  Sadly, maybe she was safer in that cage after all…

These 2 morons have been charged on 10 counts each of kidnapping, abduction, and child endangerment.  They are being held on $500,000 bond each.

The little girl and her 8-month-old baby brother are in the custody of family.  There is no info on where the older two boys are.

 

Thanks go to Dodia and Sarea for the tip.

    Well at least in this case, assuming nothing more was done to the kid, justice was somewhat served, as these two will are currently locked in a rather uncomfortable cage. As an added bonus perhaps Josselyn and Bubba (who are already in jail) will have a couple of new toys in their cage.

    I wouldn’t put my pet dog into this horror of a pen. She is 4 years old! No way she can even stand up in there. I’m disgusted with these ‘parents’. eecchh.

    WTF? I treat my poodle much better than people featured on this sight treat their own damn children!

    I don’t get why people treat their kids like pets. Why have children if you are going to be that fucked up with them. What’s worse is the fact that most pet adoption agencies do a more thorough check of who can and cannot adopt a pet….but any moron can have a kid and totally fuck up their life.

      Drunks, druggies, psychopaths and psychotics (that’s to say 99.9 per cent of the parents featured on BB) generally don’t bother with birth control. Also judging by this website abstinence-only education seems to be lost on these people.

      If this child was treated like my pets, she’d at least have a clean bed.  And warm and fluffy blankies, and lots of toys. Oh, and no cage.  Forgot about that part, although both of mine do have their very own comfy crates, but the doors are open on them. These goons were treating their child like a prisoner.  I guess the sheriff doesn’t think putting a 4 year old into a dirty cage, with no way to get out if the house should catch on fire, as abuse or neglect. Poor kid, glad she and her baby brother are out of there.  At least for now, anyway.
