Allow me to play devil/hoodrat's advocate here.
What this chick did wasn't the worst thing in the world. It's almost legal. I know here in St. Louis if you get tired of taking care of your kids, you can drop them off at a hospital, the fire department or a grocery store for the gov't to take care of, no questions asked. The idea behind the law is that they'd rather have you drop your kids off somewhere than have you mistreating them or not feeding them. This way at least the kids go into foster care for someone else to mistreat. LOL
As you can see in the pic below, she gave the kids extra diapers, in case they shit their pants, and put their coats on them, because it was probably cold out. (She couldn't help what time of year it was.) Never mind whether or not kids are supposed to stiill be wearing diapers at the ages of three and five. I don't know Jack Schitt about raising kids, but I'm pretty sure five is entirely too old to be wearing diapers, because most kids start kindergarten at age five, and I don't recall anyone in my kindergarten class wearing diapers - even the "special" kids. I don't remember how old I was when I stopped wearing diapers, but I'm thinking I may have been done with them before I was three. I may have been a bit "advanced."
I'm actually more concerned with the pics that ran in the Daily News of those two poor kids bundled up in their parkas clutching the extra diapers their mother gave them right before she abandoned their asses. Presumably, the Daily News didn't have a professional photographer, a lighting rig and what have you on the scene when the two of them were found wandering up and down the sidewalk outside the projects. (It really was outside the projects, that's not me speaking in "code," because I'm a racist.) Which leads me to believe that these photos were staged. Someone from the Daily News took them back to the place where they were abandoned, told them to hold up their diapers and say cheese.
They don't do that with rape victims, do they? (Let me know if they do.)
The pic below that is from the mother's Facebook page and was posted a mere matter of hours after she abandoned her children. She must have gone and copped some champagne to celebrate the fact that she'd no longer be taking care of her kids. It looks like it might be Rose/ay or some sort of pink champagne, if there's any difference between the two. How should I know?
Again, allow me to defend the hoodrat, as if I were a member of Amber's Army. No Boutros. For all we know, those could have been horrible children. The one on the right in particular looks like she might have an attitude problem, which might help explain why she's yet to be properly potty trained. Because I'm pretty sure she's the older of the two, although they appear to be more or less the same size. (I've got a brother who's a year younger than I am, and he was never more than half as big as me, even when were that age. #advancement) I'm not saying that's necessarily an excuse to leave your kids on the curb outside the projects. At least leave them on the curb in a clean, safe area. I'm just saying. You can understand her relief.
Furthermore, anything she did subsequent to abandoning her children (someone else took that picture, right?) is irrelevant to this discussion. Get out of that hoodrat's business.
