Yes it is truly heartbreaking, children being in the middle of all this. However, after this story is printed why don't you all do a series based on the children in AMERICA. There are children in this country who are going to bed hungry because their parents can not afford food because they were laid off because their company sent work to Guatemala.
What are they teaching their children really? Get here illegally, live looking over your shoulder every day of your life, stay under the radar so you don't get caught, It's ok to commit this crime as long as it benefits you? They are ILLEGAL!!! If they can get into this country then so can others who commit horrible crimes. We HAVE to know who these people are!!! They steal peoples identity!! They have children thinking they will be able to stay so why should WE feel bad for sending them back?
I guess you have to be a victim of a crime committed by an illegal who has disappeared (since no one knew his real name anyway) before police could track them down. No justice for the victim. Or maybe if you lose your livelihood to an illegal and are unable to support your family you will change your tune. Those who have never struggled are always the ones who think America is so strong and nothing at all is wrong. If they come here LEGALLY then WELCOME them with open arms but otherwise GO BACK HOME!!!
I agree bigbearzzz...
There were cuts to Siskins as well. I have a infant who was born at 27 weeks. She has epilepsy, CP and Hydrocephalus. She is at a 3-5 month level as far as development goes. Cognitively she is at a 10 month level. What frustrates me is that my daughter is 13 months old now. The older she gets the wider the gap. With all these children with special needs, early intervention is so crucial. They are so capable of getting a leg up and places like these really help. I want my daughter to function normally, just as any other parent of a special needs child. It is beyond frustrating when the government makes cuts such as these that takes away that lifeline. They need to take a paycut to live like the other half instead of messing with childrens therapies!!!
How many of these Latinos are legal citizens?
There is so much wrong with this case. A ministry preying on churches... A business enjoying the desperation of the homeless... It is heartbreaking. I think the number one issue is that there are those who think they are entitled to use the desperation of a homeless person who has a family to get them to do whatever they want. Who wouldn't think it is a blessing to get this kind of deal when it is so cold outside... until they get overworked and realize they have been conned. No matter what happens (the sleazy are so slimy they may slither out of this but they will get a taste of their own medicine), I will be praying for everyone in this situation.
Chattanooga needs LEGITIMATE help for the homeless. If it is working for a safe place to stay so be it, thats great... But overworking someone and not paying them is not okay. (sorry if some of this does not make sense... Baby just got out of hospital last night and am still tired).
While I do understand anyone being diagnosed with PTSD having to be monitored in case Suicide is a concern it is apparent in the story that Officer Hoback was very proactive about recieving the treatment he needed. Being punished for his condition after serving his country so honorably is WRONG. Yes he should get his job back on a silver platter with a great big appology to go along with it.
For those saying PTSD is an excuse, shame on you. I had a very dear friend who served 4 tours in IRAQ and saw things that you could never imagine. He committed suicide after waiting 5 months to see a therapist. He had seen therapists outside of the military appointed one and they loaded him up on different meds that only intensfied his depression. I will never forget how he told me that when they come home everyone expects them to just fall into normal life. While having lunch with him a balloon popped during a bday party and he hit the floor instantly. He was humiliated. He never thought of doing harm to others but he, in the end, did harm to himself. This officer sought help and was, like I said, proactive in getting that help. He deserves respect.
For the length of time everyone put in for free labor their rooms should be paid up for a really long time. Especially considering most of the employee rooms are not inhabitable by the public and are not worth what they were being charged. And BTW it is FACTS not FAX but then there were so many things wrong with that comment I would have to completely retype it myself for anyone to be able to understand it.
An eye for an eye. If a monster had murdered your child you would have no sympathy for him.
