As corrupt as Ford is, this is not an unreasonable request, unless there are grandparents or other close family members who could look after the children.
Their mother beat up her father. John’s parents are dead.
These kids need to be placed with people other than a Ford, so that they will have some chance in life.
So it seems as though you think I could go on a crime spree & never step inside the slammer, if I were a single parent?
By the way, this IS a conservative forum, perhaps you missed the sign on the door.
What makes is an unreasonable request is how corrupt Ford is, and the fact that his wife isn't free to watch the kids because she is in jail. They don't throw you in jail for a first time DUI offense. She pretty much has to be a habitual offender and he is a felon.
They should have a family court hearing regarding this, but the first question they should be asking is should the kids be placed in foster care until the parents demonstrate that they are shaping up and acting like fit parents?
