Older boy in DSS custody per HLN. FWIW
JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.
Thank God the older boy has been removed. I'm wondering where they all went after they were told they could not return home due to sewerage issue.
Justice For Caylee Marie
This may be retread, but I'm incredibly fatigued right now and I'm pretty far behind.
It might just be my kids, but I can count on one hand the time my children have had bowel movements overnight. Usually it's when their routine has been off/they're ill.
My first, sad instinct to say that was was some kind of antemortem/immediately postmortem evacuation of the bowels or a reaction to trauma. But assuming this happened in or directly around a home, how does someone in a trailer not hear anything? I've visited people that live in mobile homes and the acoustics are nuts. I had this question in the big mass murder in GA, too.
I'd totally be in support of...intense...interrogation techniques in these kinds of cases. Abductor in custody and minor abductee missing? Break out the waterboarding. Of course, I'm pro-DP for child rapists, people who commit capital murder, and litterers, so maybe I'm the wrong person to offer my opinion on that.
JMO for what it's worth, I don't think Charla was stereotyping...she was asking a question and it was asked in a respectful way. She clearly stated that she didn't know. Honestly, I would've asked the same question and like Charla, it would have been a legitimate question. We all know that evil can lurk in the prettiest of packages as well as the not-so-pretty packages.
I know I will get blasted for saying this, but I would feel better with my child visiting a friend in a nice, suburban single-family home neighborhood versus a ramshackle, unkempt trailer park. Sorry! I know that's bad....it is very judgemental and shallow of me to say that and I readily admit it. All I can say is that in MY area of the world, there are MANY trashy, unkempt trailer parks that seem to house nothing but meth-heads and drug addicts. There ARE, however, many well-kept trailer parks (mobile home communities) that house law-abiding folks who have pride in their homes. I would have NO PROBLEM with my child visiting a friend in one of these types of trailer parks. I guess the same goes for single family home neighborhoods---there is ALOT to be said about pride of ownership (and renter-ship) where folks keep their homes and land tidy and free of junk versus the trashy, junk-filled, unkempt single family homes.
I will say that the term "trailer parks" conjures up some unseemingly thoughts for many, but for me, the nice and well kept ones, the ones that show pride in ownership, are a totally different animal from the trashy, unkempt, junk-ridden ones.
Charla, your question was a valid one. To me, there is vast difference between a mobile home community and a trailer park.
As much as I raise an eyebrow at Charla's tone at times, I do have to say I understand what she's trying to say. It's not hard to get housing in a MHP. There are MH communities that are pretty much transient housing. Not transient meaning homeless, but transient meaning people without long-term leases that need quick, affordable housing. Sadly, while that demographic isn't solely comprised of SOs, a lot a lot a lot of SOs fall into that demo. These are people that sometimes find it hard to get jobs and maintain a good credit history.
You can also say the same thing about a lot of motels. For example, there used to be a Holiday Inn on 192 in Kissimmee, Fl. It "lost its flag" and became an independently-operated motel called Home Suite Home. Last I checked, there was something like 18-20 RSOs living in the same motel that advertises itself to families looking for reasonable accomodations while at Walt Disney World. It's beyond disturbing.
So, no, there are very wealthy killers and rapists and we can't stereotype, but some MHPs attract a demo that have a history of this sort of crime and that demo happens to have a high recidivism rate.
It also corresponds with the sort of arrogance that constructed that dumbass story about what happened to Shaniya and then called 911.
JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.
If it is true as the lady said and there is a camera across from the trailer Shania lived in I can assume LE has more information than they've had in many other missing children situations.
Did I hear correct ( or am I making this up as I go along) that Antwanette applied for a mobile home 1st and she was turned down, then the sister Brenda applied? I do recall the landlord (davenport) said she does background checks etc. She's even keeping an eye on the SO's making sure they are up to date with their registeries and all they need to do. I'm sure this is because she was a former investigator. I also have to commend her on putting 4 video cameras in the park as well. She didn't have to do that and its very expensive. Soooo, although I agree with everyone's thoughts on location, nature/nurture etc etc. I think this landlord had her act together a heck of alot more then others do. IMO
Taking DD out to eat. I'll check back in later.
Y'all have a good evening.
Praying for Shaniya and all who love her.
