Father Denied Dying Daughter's Wish (VERY SAD UPDATE FROM O'REILLY FACTOR TONIGHT)
Conservative Vermont Vet | March 27, 2008 | Conservative Vermont Vet

Posted on 03/27/2008 6:14:07 PM PDT by Conservative Vermont Vet

Update: Despite efforts from Fox News to facilitate this dying girl's wish to have her father at her bedise when she passes, the imovable, cold-hearted, beauraucratic, red tape of the Jucidiary, Bureau Of Prisons and U.S. Attorney are intransigent in their unwillingness to bend the "rules" to allow this to happen.

Sadly, somehow I missed it.

After seeing this on O'Reilly, I am compelled to post it again in the hope that something can be done to move these idiots off the dime before this little girl had died

Apparently Fox correspondent (name escapes me as I am so upset and just a little incensed) contacted the Judge and he agreed to order the father released early if US Attorney agreed

Sadly, the POS is hiding under his desk and apparently his mouthpiece, some bimbo, was very abrupt with correspondent when he attempted to contact US Attorney.

Likewise BOP is holding fast to their simplistic "these are the rules and we have to follow them" mantra.

It is not like this man is a danger to society.

His place of incarceration is a camp: No walls, no fence, etc.

Moreover, he is due to be released to a half-way house in a few months anyway.

Don't know what we can do, but I'm going to try and get emails for Judge, US Attorney and Warden as well as BOP and send them a love note.

Anyone who chooses to participate to try to affect outcome will be appreciated by me and I would imagine, the father and family.

Thanks

PS If anyone beats me to finding info, please post.

What makes this a tragedy is that a dying girl couldn’t get her last wish. Ridiculous especially when considers that serial killers and unrepentant murderers get their last wishes met incl. a hearty meal of their choice.

It was Fox’s Gregg Jarrett (an attorney) handling the case. Such a sad story.

The tradegy was caused by the guy committing a prison-worthy crime and not being the father he should have been before and after the daughter was terminal.

This is one of the problems that the federalization of crime has caused. The federal sentencing times are several times the magnitude of state sentences and there is absolutely no accountablility for any actions taken by Federal bureaucrats. They are completely immune from public opinion.

He has had 3 escorted visits in the last month. The judge, AG and the courts decided enough was enough.

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

Have you ever studied just exactly how lethal Meth is to anyone that tries it? The addiction schedule is staggering. This is no recreational drug. Meth is death.

Hey Y'all:

The compassion you are all exhibiting is overwhelming and makes me ashamed to even consider you fellow Freepers.

Notwithstanding the Father's transgressions (drug related and not child molesting, rape, murder, etc.) how does one stand in judgment without considering the life (and soon the death) of this innocent child?

Yeah right, "Dont' do the crime if you can't do the crime" is really a thesis in intellectual sophistry and can only hope that none of you are ever placed in similar situation.

As for me, being a common sinner, I will pray for God's help for the sake of this child--regardless of the sins of the father.

Yes, I have some friends that almost died from it. It really is the worst drug out there. That does not mean, however, that the Feds should be involved or that the girl, who is going to die, should have to pay for the sins of her father.

The other thing I do not buy is that the "dealer" is this evil monster and the "user" is some exploited innocent victim, especially at the lower levels. It takes two to tango, and "users" often transition to "dealers" to pay for their habit.

I was growing up when the drugs really hit this country and there wasn't alot of armtwisting going on. It was pretty much a consensual situation. Parents like to think their children are victims but that is rarely the case.

He was not placed in the situation, he placed himself in this situation. My point is that when you get yourself sentenced to prison, you are no longer in control of the situation and are in no place to demand anything. He can ask, plead, beg, etc, but if he was a better father and not a druggie, he'd be able to decide for himself to attend to his daughter.

Is there any limit to the demands that should be accomodated from the dying? What if he was violent? What if it was a son (far less cute?) What if the daughter was 45 years old? How about if the daughter had 2 years to live? Where is the limit to freeing criminals for dying relatives?

And I applaud your compassion and celebrate your right to discuss issues such as this here on FR. (Even when we disagree.)

Hey, it's not our fault the Dad screwed up and went to prison and that the Judge doesn't want to let him go home. Maybe there is a lesson here for the Dad that he will carry for the rest of his life. If he was a good father to start with, he would have been with his daughter all a long. It's out of our hands so if you want emotion, sip all you want.

Absolutely there should be. And they should be considered on a case by case basis when considering the merits thereof

What if he was violent?

Hardly think so, as he is house in a "Camp" that has NO BARS and NO FENCE. Inmates could/can simply walk away anything they so choose

What if it was a son (far less cute?)

Now that really makes sense. Would a father love a son less than a daughter? Would this not touch SOME OF US the same if this were so??

What if the daughter was 45 years old?

It would make absolutely no difference: A child dying, no matter the age, holds as much importance as any other.

How about if the daughter had 2 years to live?

THEN THIS WOULD BE A MOOT POINT BECAUSE AS OF AUGUST, HE WOUILD BE FREE TO TRAVEL AND SPEND AS MUCH TIME BY HER SIDE AS HE WISHES.

Sadly, she will be dead by then.

Where is the limit to freeing criminals for dying relatives?

HE IS NOT ASKING TO BE "FREED." HE IS ONLY ASKING TO BE ABLE TO SPEND AS MUCH TIME WITH HIS DAUGTHER (LET US NOT FORGET THAT THIS WAS HER DYING WISH) AS NEED BE UNTIL SHE IS DEAD AND THEN HE WOULD BE RETURNED TO HIS JAIL FACILITY.

He has pleaded repeatedly with prison officials to honor the bureau's apparent policy of allowing furloughs and transfers under "extraordinary'' circumstances, but has been rebuffed time and again, he told ABC News in a telephone interview from prison today. He is scheduled to be transferred in August to a halfway house just an hour from his daughter's bedside, but prison officials have refused to transfer him early, he said.

They already have a policy of allowing furloughs and transfers under "extraordinary circumstances."

If this is not "extraordinary circumstances," what is?

com·pas·sion:

–noun 1. a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.

—Synonyms 1. commiseration, mercy, tenderness, heart, clemency. See sympathy.

I'm 64 years old; spent 8 years in USAF (18 months in Nam); was a Federal Agent and busted my share of drug users/dealer; am a law and order type; don't do drugs; and also believe in the addage that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime

That said, I'm really surprised at the total lack of empathy that apparently the majority hold for this child and rabid animosity toward the father for his transgressions.

After being around here both lurking and otherwise for many years, I was under the impression that while Freepers were (as I am) Conservatives, I also thought most had a modicum of compassion for their fellow man--especially under circumstances such as this

How can one not be touched by the dying wish of an innocent little girl?

I guess that only the pure and holy deserve compassion; those who have NOT sinned?

Well, being so close to Easter (and Holy Friday) when we believers honored Our Lord for giving his life for us sinners, and if HE can forgive me, I guess I can forgive this father at least to the point of allowing him to be with his daughter as she lays in bed up to her last breath.

God Bless her, her father and all of you.

I don't disagree with that... it's basically the systems lack of compassion and common sense which upsets me, when it could apply existing policy to this extraordinary case.

Hopefully, their Congressman (Jeff Fortenberry) will stay on this one...

--regardless of the sins of the father.

And that is precisely the reason he cannot see his daughter.

He has already been judged by man's law.

What God thinks of his crime that puts him behind bars, and NOT be with his child as He delivers her to His bosum, is what he will be judged by at the end of his days.

That is his doing, not anyone elses.

Ah, it must be nice for you and others who hold the same opinion to be above reproach and never have done anything which begins to be as horrific as this father engaged in.

Don't know if you are a Christian, but wonder how God will judge you if/when you approach the Golden Gates and ask for admittance?

Oh, I digress, you and the others have nothing to worry about as you apparently have never sinned.

I wonder if God will look less favorably upon us who have committed run of the mill sins as opposed to have been a drug dealer; or a pimp; or a murderer; or ......... will he pick and choose which ones to forgive based on our "perception" of how grave the offense??

IF so, there are a lot of us who are going to be looking for a glass of ice water in the bowels of damnation and hellfires.

And since when has "Man's Law" been "INFLEXIBLE?"

Exceptions are made every single day for every single reason--and for none at all

What God thinks of his crime that puts him behind bars, and NOT be with his child as He delivers her to His bosum, is what he will be judged by at the end of his days.

Amen and why not wait and let God Judge him when he dies?

Who are we to judge him here and now and decide omnipotently, that he does not deserve to be afforded the benefit of being with his daughter, which appears to be the case so many are willing to proclaim

That is his doing, not anyone elses.

Granted. But, as he is at the end of his sentence and NOT asking to be released from incarceration, only to be allowed to spend whatever time his daughter has left (and then be returned to prison) should this be considered UNREASONABLE??

Apparently, so!!!!

So by your standard any convict who has a dying parent, a dying child, a dying relative, dog, cat, bird, etc, should be allowed to go home until they pass? He ALREADY had escorted vists to see his child.

Prison is not a hotel you can leave at your whim, no matter the reason. It's there as a punishment for a crime.

You are asking us to have sympathy for a father who didn't have the care for his daughter in the first place, to allow him out of prison to see her now?

If he hadn't put himself in the situation of serving a prison term for drugs, he's be home with his daughter now.

If you are looking for any of us who you call 'morally superior' to have any sympathy for an uncaring father, you've come to the wrong place.

Of course, how insensitive of me not to have realized that already?

Yes Dad has seen his daughter.

Daughter has dying wish to have her dad with her when she passes

TOO BAD, DAD. You've had your 2 - 3 visits, now rot in prison where you belong, you scum and when your daughter dies, just remember, its your fault you could not be there holding her in your arms.

Makes sense to me. /s

Prison is not a hotel you can leave at your whim, no matter the reason. It's there as a punishment for a crime.

Your right of course, and he damned well better spend EVERY single day of his sentence in prison, or justice will not have been served and society will have been cheated of its pound of flesh--even if a few days would be spent with his daughter and then added at the end of his sentence.

Oh wait, that would involve some measure of compassion and logic, which neither he NOR HIS DAUGHTER, are apparently entitled to.
