    NV - Jonathan Weaver for child abuse, Las Vegas, 2009

    Metro Police have arrested a 20-year-old man for strapping two toddlers into car seats, gagging them, and leaving them on the floor of a garage, Incredible... the perpetrator had used a pillow case and tee shirt as hoods over the children's heads.

    Thank goodness a passerby heard the children's cries from the garage and called 911

    I hope while he's waiting trial that they strap him down, duct tape his mouth and put a hood over his head. I know that isn't going to happen but it should.

    What an idiot! So he carried out this cruel act because he "wanted to go out". Glad to see they have charged him with attempted murder, and not just child endangeremnt. Sadly, I bet he doesn't do a lot of time. This will be an interesting one to follow legally.

    What it wrong with people? How well do parents know the people with whom they entrust their children? And what a loathsome human being to treat these babies this way. I hope they don't later reduce the charges. What he did was truly horrific.

    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    I am going on a little rant here.

    I am reading this and we have a 20 year old mother with a two year old, a one year old, and a boyfriend she has had for one year and is not the father of her children. After a year, she or her family didn't notice anything unseemly about this guy -- so, unexpectedly, one day he just tapes the babies in their car seats, gags them, covers their heads and leaves them in a garage so he can go party. It is hard to believe he turned this mean on one night. Makes me wonder how many other times he has done this or some other horrific act.

    We have an alarming number of unwed mothers in our country. I would guess many, like this mother, have more than one child and by more than one "boyfriend." The number of unwed mothers in 1960 was 5% of all births. Today that number is 40% and growing. Then factor in the "boyfriend" that has no real interest in the child and no wonder these children are on a growing list of neglected, abused, or murdered children. If a person can't take care of themselves by themselves, why do they think they can raise a child alone? Children deserve better. These little boys sure deserved better.

    The means to avoid a pregnancy are readily available. Why do these girls/women keep having babies out of wedlock or even a without solid relationship with a boy/man that would contribute/paticipate to their child's upbringing? What are we not conveying to our daughters about relationships and the awesome responsibility of raising a child?

    This man needs to be bound and gagged tied to a chair and left in a hot garage to die for his punishment...WTH gets in to people I'll never understand! Thank goodness for this woman and her husband for being aware of their surroundings and calling.

    further down in that article I found this:

    The mother is not being charged in connection with this crime. Her family tells us she is trying to regain custody of her children from Child Protective Services.

    So why didn't she have custody? How long did CPs have custody? I think there is going to be more to this story.

    She had custody but CPS took them after they were checked at the hospital- standard procedure. Though I'm not sure whey they haven't been given back; who knows- maybe there is more to the story. I hope not!!!

    (respectfully snipped)

    This train of thought and these questions deserve their own thread - I believe we've had one or two here that are in the neighborhood, but I couldn't find them.

    I recall reading a story sometime in the last year or two - an interview with a young unwed mother of two or three children. She came from a poor family and had not completed school. She spoke honestly about how in her entire life the only time she was treated important or special was when she was pregnant. It was sad.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    "They've Been On Other 'Garage Campouts" Before" Says...

    man arrested for having bound & gagged two toddlers:

    "The arrest report says Weaver told police he was upset his girlfriend asked him to watch her 1 and 2-year-old children while she attended night school. According to the report, Weaver didn't think leaving the boys in the garage was a big deal because they had been on garage "camp outs" before.

    As I'm watching the 4 PM news here, they're reporting the perp said to police he was "angry' that he had to watch the children when he wanted to go to the 51s basketball game!

    From the above same link:

    http://www.lasvegasnow.com/Global/st...&nav=menu102_2

    The children's mother has not been charged because she had no idea what happened. The boys are now back with their mother.

    Weaver is not the father of the children, but according to the arrest report, their 20-year-old mother is now pregnant with his child.
