Gone Baby Gone

April 11, 2013

I don’t understand this child abduction case that gained so much attention because the children’s parents took them to Cuba.  What are the parents guilty of?

The circumstances leading up to the ordeal began in June [2012?] when the family was staying at a hotel in Slidell, Louisiana.

Responding to a call, police officers found the parents “acting in a bizarre manner,” Slidell police said in a statement.

Inside the room where the boys were, they found narcotics and weapons.

“They were talking about ‘completing their ultimate journey’ and were traveling across the country to ‘take a journey to the Armageddon,'” police said about the parents.

Louisiana authorities took the children from their parents after that incident.

If having firearms, drugs, and talking about the Armageddon are enough to have one’s children removed, then 70% of all the Christian-Redneck parents in the United States should expect to lose their children any day now.  What bugs me the most about this case is of course the framing.  We (the public) are to just assume that police and child protective services are on the side of the right and that is that.  This is some fascist shit.  Maybe the parents do suck.  Nevertheless, how swift this all escalated makes it far too suspicious.

    People commenting on other sites are asserting that the drug was “pot.” Really?

    OK, Canadian disorientation here – but do you figure it’s because the parents were taking the kids to *Cuba*? And the USA is wildly paranoid of Cuba?

      I think them going to Cuba is what got the media involved. However, it reads like the parents took the children to Cuba because the children were taken away from the parents. The parents (mainly the father, I believe) broke into the maternal-grandmother’s house (she had custody) and tied her up and took the children. But, it was only last June that the children were taken from the parents, and only after they were found in the hotel with the weed. Some commenters are saying the grandmother and the police conspired because they didn’t like the way the children were being raised. However, they were unharmed, well-fed and happy. If the parents had not chosen Cuba, we probably wouldn’t have heard about this case. So, there is where Cuba comes into it. Parents are losing their children to CPS everyday and many cases are absurd. CPS and the police are storming into people’s homes. There is a trend. I wouldn’t know the amount of people I know who had to deal with CPS if it wasn’t a trend. There just has been too many. And it is a big money maker. Because, so far, I do not know anyone who have actually lost their children permanently. However, they did have to “lend” their children to foster care and go through tons and tons of classes that are scheduled at various times of the day and various days of the week, making it a nightmare for parents who work and rely on public transportation. Then, if any, ANY classes or missed it gives the courts and CPS reason to hold the children longer. People who foster children get money from the government and 1 in 4 foster children are abused (raped). It is a racket. It is like alleged drug users who are court ordered to drug test every time their color comes up, yet they are charged for the test, and when they cannot pay for the test (that is court ordered) they are risking jail (all before they go to court). Little drug testing for profit clinics have popped up around courthouses all across America.
