Jersey City mom goes partying and leaves three tots, including 7-month-old, home alone: cops
New Jersey Star Ledger ^ | 7/18/10 | Charles Hack/The Jersey Journal

Posted on 07/18/2010 7:55:29 PM PDT by nmh

A 20-year-old Jersey City mother Jessica Figueroa, has been charged with endangering the welfare of her two toddlers and her 7-month-old baby after leaving them at home alone for hours Saturday night into early Sunday while she allegedly went clubbing in Manhattan, police said.

...

No harm came to any of the children thanks to neighbors who took care of the three tots after finding a tearful 3-year-old boy and his NAKED 2-year-old sister roaming the second-floor hallway of the family's Arlington Avenue apartment building at about 8:15 p.m. with no adult supervision, police spokesman Lt. Edgar Martinez said.

A resident spotted the 2- and 3-year-olds crying and wandering the hallway at around 8:15 p.m., police said. When the man asked where their mother was, the 2-year-old replied, "Mommy's not here," according to reports.

The resident who saw the toddlers wandering around in the apartment hallway, called his girlfriend and took the toddlers to the apartment they lived in. The door was open and the 7-month year old baby was on a mattress crying.

Mind you, the DOOR WAS OPEN!

When the police finally got a cell number for the biological "mother", a couple of hours later, and told her that her children were at the South District precinct on Bergen Avenue she told them she told them she was at a club in Manhattan and would return IF she could get a ride,

BTW where is DAD? On WELFARE? What's the going rate for three little ones?

How can you be 20 years-old, have THREE kids and be out partying?

I’ll probably get flamed for saying this, but there are some young people in the world that really ought to have their lines snipped/tied.

Our young people are no longer adults at 20 years old, as earlier generations of Americans were. I'm constantly amazed at the high degree of responsibility and achievement of young Americans in centuries past.

The Constitution stipulates that a president must be at least 35 years of age. I can't picture a person of that age running this country in this day and age, but it was entirely realistic in the 18th century, due to the character of the culture in that day.

My grandparents were born in the early 20th century. They married when they were just teenagers, but my grand dad was already a sure provider and a professional man. My grandmother had the first of her five children when she was 18, and raised them all to be successful people. Even in their day youngsters became responsible adults much earlier than they do today.

C'mon folks, lighten up.

She was merely going out to a club in order to make a new sibling for her children so they wouldn't be lonely!

Well, nowadays they are expected to do 16 years in day care. Twelve in primary and secondary, four in college, typically.

My Grandma in pre-WW I days graduated from the eighth grade and went to work as a maid. She never stopped working even after marrying and raising four kids.

Is there really any doubt that you and I and the other taxpayers are ALREADY supporting her and her growing family?

So in a financial sort of way, she is already practically a member of all of our families!

Well yes, we’ve all opene dup our wallets for her and her brood, BUT would’t you also like to open up YOUR HOME to her? After all, doesn’t it “take a village to raise a child”?

I hope they lock up this bitch and throw away the key. 3 years ago, we had this happen in Pittsburgh. Two moms out boozin it up & left their kids home alone, the oldest was 8. The house caught on fire and all the kids died. I can’t recall if there were 5 of them or 7 but regardless, with two tramps like that raising them, they’re much better off in the arms of Jesus.

Just sickening.

WHAT?

Spend money on the toddlers and baby?

Heck the little girl was wandering the hallway naked!

Nah, she couldn’t afford THAT.

She can afford to have OTHERS boose her up and ... try for 4.

GREAT if the government gets off its dead ass, maybe these one, two, or three MEN (boys) will be held accountable. I don’t want to pay for someone elses kids, especially if they are non productive deadbeats

Silly nmh, certainly you must know that there is no need for that, since your taxes are probably already providing her a Section 8 voucher for housing her growing brood.

I'm sure she is quite grateful to you! (not that you have a choice in the matter...)

I betcha it is DADS.

The word "dad" is a title, granted to a man who fulfills his responsibilities to his children for as long as he can. I know you didn't mean it, but calling these people "dads" is disrespectful.

I prefer the terms "sire" or "stud" instead.

There once was a woman from Jersey,
Who from taxpayers looked to for mercy,
They paid for her fancies,
So she dropped her panties,
And single-handedly filled up a nursery!

That happened here several times to the SAME WOMAN! She left her babies in dirty diapers with no food, water, etc. and the police found the kids in an empty house in the winter when it was freezing cold.

The ‘mother’ was in Dallas, Texas with her ‘boyfriend’ probably procreating more little ones.

If I remember correctly she did it about three times before she lost her kids for good.

When Figueroa, who had an open warrant out of Hoboken

Jessica Figueroa

Gender: Female
Status: Single
Age: 21
Sign: Scorpio

State: New Jersey
Country: US

I may still not know what I want to do when I grow up, but I do want to live in a house filled with books and travel souvenirs. And the walls that aren’t covered in bookshelves will be covered with photos of my family and friends. When I leave the house, I will be going to a job I love, and I’ll return to a person I love. So, that’s the dream I’m working on.....

No, the kids only get taken away by a judge or the state, if the mother is a conservative Christian mother, home schooling her children, or if mother is now a born again Christian who left a former lesbian relationship with an abusive lesbian, who then decides that she (the abusive lesbian) wants full custody of the Christian mother's bilogical children. THEN the judge or state will decide to take the children for their "own good" or establish the abusive lesbian with full custody & legal rights as the new "mother".

In this particular case of child endagerment & neglect by a minority slut Jessica Figueroa, I figure that she's got at least 3-4 more blatant incidents like this the state or a judge will timidly step in. By that time, we the taxpayers will be supporting at least 4-5 neglected & abused kids by Jessica as well as Jessica herself.
