It was not a good weekend for dumb folk… fortunately for their kids.Â First you have the story of an idiot, who wanting to avoid having to take two cars for a family outing, opted instead to have two of his kids, take the trip in the trunk of the car.
Douglas Willy, 40, was arrested Saturday after police received a tip from a person who saw the family at a gas station, authorities said. He was charged with two counts of reckless endangerment.
Willy, his fiancee and their four children were taking a trip but the vehicle did not fit all six passengers. So, police said, he decided two of the children would ride in the trunk to avoid taking a second vehicle.
I guess he was dumb enough to not realize what he was doing was wrong, and actually let the children out temporarily while at the service station.Â Now, it may seem callous to some but the fact that the mother was later able to take the children home irks me.Â She was in the car as well!Â She knew what was going on.Â But I guess, since he was driving the vehicle, only he could be charged in the case.Â Perhaps, we need to come up with a special law for these types of situations.Â Felony Stupidity.Â
The second case this weekend, the more I think about it is less dumb, and more just plain sick.Â A woman arrested for offering sex with her 7-year-old daughter, just made me quite ill. Â I mean, my daughter will be seven years old this year, and while I lament that she is no longer a “little baby” in some respects, she is still an innocent child.Â I still rack my brain trying to understand how some sick people can look at a small child like that and see a “sexual being.”Â But there is nothing in my head that even come close to trying to figure out what goes through a mother’s head in attempting to cater to these freaks with her own daughter!
The woman was prepared to offer her daughter â€œfor pornographic photos and anything else that was available if the price was right,â€ Sheriff Warren Evans said. â€œShe had indicated very clearly that that child would do whatever it was that the person who was going to meet the child wanted to do, and that she would see that the child complied.
According to the story, she is being held on $1 million dollars bail (I’m guessing that they felt they couldn’t refuse bail, so they set an amount she probably can’t obtain), and can face up to 20 years.Â Now based on the MSNBC report, she showed up at the hotel with a duffel bag full of adult toys, and assorted dresses for her daughter to wear.Â Somehow I am guessing that this is not her “first time” pulling this stunt, and 20 years, is no where near long enough of a sentence.Â Or maybe, after she serves her time in prison they could remand her to a psychiatric facility until they can determine what is broken in her brain.
