Parents helping children…not always a good thing

Utah mom accused of helping son in drive-by shooting

Mom Accused of Helping Son in Drive-by Shooting

Nice tat

While many of us enjoy helping our children with homework and projects, there are SOME things that we should avoid assisting them with. Indeed, we should discourage some behaviors altogether. Alas, Lisa Egersdorf has too few brain cells to be able to distinguish between the good activities and the bad ones. But, she DOES have that really nice face tat, so I guess that is some sort of consolation for her.

Lisa is a 36-year-old woman who thought it would be a great idea to help her 17-year-old son, Damian Garcia, with a drive by shooting. No, you did not misread that. She (allegedly) drove the car from which her son shot at some classmates who were fighting with him at school. Great role model there, mom! I wonder if she taught him how to fire the gun as well. If she did, then we can be thankful that her shooting skills (and his) are as atrocious as her ability to make good decisions. None of the kids who were shot at were hit.

As the story was reported, Loser (sounds better than Lisa, don’t you think?) picked up her son from school in Salt Lake City, Utah, and he told her that some of his classmates had jumped him. She allegedly replied, “It’s all right, we’re going to get them.”

She then drove her son past a convenience store where he opened fire on a car in which the other students were passengers. After he shot at them, Loser asked Damian, “Did you get them?” My head spins.

Loser has admitted that she and her son are members of the same gang, but denies that they were involved in the shooting. Yeah, it was all a big misunderstanding, right?

I know this is not the usual fare here at BB, because it doesn’t involve physical abuse of the perpetrator’s child. However, IMHO, this woman has ruined her son’s life just as effectively as if she had beaten him to a bloody pulp or pimped him out. They are both now up on multiple felony counts, and the mother has also been charged with child endangerment. I could not find any info on bail or the status of their incarceration, either. Personally, I think she should be charged with gross stupidity and general butt-munchery as well, but I’m pretty sure those are still not chargeable offenses. Pity. If the world was fair, stupidity would be a terminal disease, or at least be so painful that those suffering from such severe cases of it would be physically incapable of leaving the home to perpetrate these kinds of acts.

The good news on this one is – no dead babies. I needed something a little different, after the other recent stories I’ve written up here. I was almost at the end of my tether.

Child found beaten and starved, then it gets weird

Child Found Beaten, Starved in Closet; Mom Arrested:

Police in Apple Valley, California arrested 31-year-old Desiree Gonzales after an anonymous tipster told police that her son was being abused. When police got there they found her 5-year-old son in a closet, emaciated and covered with bruises.

Also arrested was her 16-year-old male ‘roommate’.

Police said it appeared that both of them were on meth and that they had L.A. gang connections.

And 9 other children were moved from the home. Not a typo, nine. Allegedly the 5-year-old was the only one that belonged to Gonzales.

And there were two other adults that weren’t charged.

If it wasn’t for the fact that a child was being abused this would almost be comical.

I never knew that you could smoke meth in a clown car.

Thanks to Bridget for the tip.

Kid tattooing gangsta arrested

Father of gang-tattooed 7-year-old arrested:

Remember the story of Enrique Gonzales who had his 7-year-old son tattooed with the symbol of Gonzales’ gang? Of course you do.

Anyway the slimeball has been arrested. It seems he has another kid who he’s trying to initiate in the gang lifestyle too…

After his arrest, police discovered a photograph of Gonzalez, his son and a third child. The two children had gang graffiti on their bodies, police said.

Nothing like trying to breed future criminals.

Fresno gangsta has his 7-year-old son tattooed

California father accused of forcing gang tattoo on 7-year-old son:

26-year-old Enrique Gonzales of Fresno, California is a member of the Bulldog street gang. Apparently he enjoys the thug life so much he had his 7-year-old son tattooed with the gang’s symbol. A picture of the tattoo can be found in the article.

Let’s just put the whole gang thing to the side for a minute. I have a fairly decent sized tattoo on my body, no you can’t see it. It was the second most painful experience in my life next to breaking my arm in four places. I can’t imagine the pain and fear this kid must have had even for a relatively small tattoo.

Gonzalez is still on the run from the law and the tattoo artist has been arrested.
