Convicted Sex Offender Sentenced To 30 Years In Prison On Child Porn Conviction

Now this monster is given 30 years for child porn,??! What did they ignore the fact that he had been convicted not once but twice before?? Was he registered properly? On Parole? 

Also, in order to get access to kids at McDonald’s where he worked at, there had to be something of a red flag!!

If I were the victim I’d sue the living hell out of someone when I became of age. I mean.where were the kids parents? I had children,we went to McDonald’s, they didn’t leave my sight. Nevermind enough time to be victimized.

Where was his coworkers or team leaders to notice him interacting with kids??  If he’d been caught before he shouldn’t have been allowed near a McDonald’s it’s a place where kids gather.

Not near parks or schools or anywhere known for having a playground.

How’s it that MacDonalds hired him to begin with if he’s a sex offender? Hrm…

Besides that, why does it have to take three times before they realize this type of offense is a sickness?

By the time the pedophile is caught on the first offense, it’s pretty much safe to assume he got caught after many times of not being caught. Who knows the number of victims trailed behind that will never be named.

Then again, Collin County CPS and Judges had sided with the child molester in my case to cover their assess when they messed up in the beginning of my case and didn’t want to admit it.

So…. Who knows. It’s disgusting.

Pedophiles are not criminals that rehabilitate, and I’m not sure they should be given the chance to THE FIRST TIME. When they decided to hurt a child they change that child into a different life they didn’t choose later on…many times continuing the cycle of abuse becoming like their abusers.

Children need to trust and not be violated and those who cross that line one time should be sentenced to mandatory maximum sentences and castrated  ..no second chances.or third.

Just my opinion. Glad this guy’s off the street. Keep em locked up!!

Happy Holidays From It’s Almost Tuesday

We are nearing the end of 2015, another year, another lifetime for parents away from their kids.

Whether CPS, divorce, school, or ones of the tragic stories that keeps you apart, It’s Almost Tuesday wants you to know you are not alone.

May the spirit of the season bring you no more sorrow in the spaces between you and those you love,  but rather, bring you smiles of solace as you remember the good times.

Every story changes us.

Godspeed.

Remembering the Forgotten Children

I saw filthy living conditions

These were the living conditions found and reported by Texas Comptroller Carole Strayhorn in 2004 when she investigated the Texas Foster Care System.

She called her report Forgotten Children.

Although those facilities pictured here from her report may not be housing children in this manner since her report, there are otherhomes and residential treatment centers that are still housing foster children, and sadly, not all are up to standards. Not all facilities are bad either, there are many good homes too.

What’s important is that we do not forget that these children are out there, needing us to keep an eye on them.

To that end, I am republishing these photos. To remember the Forgotten Children from 2004 to more than a decade later in 2015.
