Skip to comments.[Heroic] Teens Helped Unsupervised, Roaming Children in Jersey City [evil mom was with boyfriend]

Several children were spotted running around a Jersey City street on Wednesday. They were naked and hungry and their mother was nowhere in sight. Two teenage girls came to the rescue.
"They were running up and down the road- no clothes on," said Nilaja Wyatt, 17. She decided to take control of the situation after her friend Aaliyah Glover said her mother almost ran over one of the kids.
"We saw a little boy -- he ran in front of our car so my mother had to swerve her car," Aaliyah Glover said.
The teens gathered the six children and brought them inside. That's when they found out the kids' 2-year-old brother was in the upstairs apartment all by himself. The door was locked, so they broke in.
"He was crying," Wyatt said. "He had a snotty nose, everything, crying standing by the door."
They said there was no food in the apartment.
"They were hungry," Glover said. "We asked them did they eat, he said he didn't eat in two days."
So the teens fed and bathed the children and waited for their mom, who was out with a boyfriend, to come home. She never did, so they called the cops.
Police Chief Tom Comey said Francine Davis, 40, had left the children in the care of their oldest sibling, a 14-year-old autistic child. He said Davis had nothing to say when she turned herself in.
"You left your children in the care of somebody who wasn't emotionally or mentally capable," Comey said. "What can you say? There's nothing you can say that can ease that."
Now these teens are being called heroes.
"I felt like if I was in their situation in their shoes, I would want someone to help me," Glover said.
Davis is facing six counts of endangering the welfare of a child. The children are now in foster care.
Welfare isn’t a lifestyle.
Why do I feel that they weren’t just kids, they were a $1200 a month ea. paycheck for their so called mom,(An insult to the rest of the moms in the country.) at the tax payers expense. ????
What a sad, sad story.
The “Obama Stash” doing its best to destroy America!!! Keep Obama as POTUS and you can expect this kind of abuse of children on a regular basis. Our nation is headed to destruction under Obama and the Democrat Party!!! I’ll bet my last dollar and penny that this horrible, cold, uncaring woman is a diehard supporter of Obama, and....of course his free handout stash. Our country is headed for destruction by the hand of Obama, his wife Michelle and the Democrat Party!!
I wish they would quit calling people like this mothers. This is not a mother, it’s a welfare queen.
Looks like Gov. Christie has more work cut-out for him than he ever imagined.
Thank God we have some teenagers who are responsible far beyond their years. Or are they responsible because of their upbringing which knows no years?
A job well done and a well deserved “Thank You For Being a Friend”.
I Thank God we have children such as Nilaja Wyatt and Aaliyah Glover out there to protect the other younger children.
I guess this time the Amish came through.
I would say I can’t imagine a 2 year old who has not eaten in 2 days except my niece who was adopted from Russia was left alone in an apt in a crib at age 2 and starved for days. When my brother in law and his wife first got her her if you looked at the food on her plate she would wrap her arm around the plate and turn her back on you in order to sheild the food. Its enough to make you cry. Those two teenage girls are a credit to their famiies.
I hope these teens get a hand up in life.
God bless those teen girls. It’s story where you see the worst of humanity and the best.
Jus’ wondering where the six kids’ six fathers were.
I would guarantee they are out making more welfare/food stamp recipients.
Me too, B4. Me too.
Kudos to these two young women.
I do too. They deserve it.
The teenagers intervened, not the adults. They weren’t afraid. I think I would have been afraid, I’m ashamed to say. They didn’t wait to be told what to do, didn’t wait for the cops, just did what needed to be done. 9/12 behavior. You can bet that’s not the first time those kids have been left alone, just the first time they managed to get out of the apartment. God bless them.
a tree grows in Brooklyn......hope is eternal...
More here, with photos of the two teen ‘angels’:
I just call them breeders. People like this POS need to be spayed. Maybe harsh but so is life.
I just hope and pray that someone compassionate takes those kids and shows them what a real home and family is like. GOD in Heaven knows they deserve FAR better than what they’ve had so far in their little lives.
Just wait until some government worker drone slaps a breaking and entering charge on them to teach them not to think 9/12 and you must rely on the government to solve these problems
Wow, what a couple of great teens. It is easy, in their neighborhood, to not want to get involved, it is often more problems than its worth. They took the chance of breaking in to a home to help the 2 year old. They got bigger ones than me, I tell you. I would have called the police and left. Kudos to them.
"Home" -- singular. Siblings?
BTW, it appears to me a nice, well-kept "home"... New public housing -- with sidelights in the doorway? (If so, invitation to break-in...)
Good girls. I’m so glad they were there and had the courage to intervene.
We had a situation in Georgia in *military* housing. One of the army wives lost her mind while our husbands were deployed and left her two babies (2 and 3) in the care of her 8 year old daughter.
I was one of the neighbors who took the kids in when I found then roaming. I’d feed and bathe them and let them stay at my place for hours. (There were about 4 of us women who rotated this while the guys were gone. None of us *ever* met the mother.)
My husband found the little ones outside roaming one morning shortly after he came back. It was 4:30AM and he was on his way to PT. He took the kids out of the road, banged like hell on the locked door and delivered the kids to their mother.
After someone (with more courage than me) called the police, the children were taken. When the apartment was cleaned out, there were two *full* pickup loads of garbage hauled to the dump. (Something like 40 lawn and leaf bags for garbage taken from a small, 3 bedroom apartment)
The poor husband came home to a missing wife, a trashed military apartment, abandoned kids, and $20,000 in debt. Not to mention that she had sold everything that was of value to feed her gambling addiction so had had no vehicle.
This happens everywhere. (Although, I agree it’s more common in the projects.)
Thank God that these two kids are here to be celebrated for their basic goodness, and not as perp photos. Hope it rubs off on a lot of their homies.
As a resident of Hudson County, I can say first and foremost that Jersey City is a wretched hide of scum and villainy, save for the downtown area, and parts of Journal Square. You have a gaggle of nearly indicted or indicted political hacks running the city government, a police chief that thinks his officers deserve preferential rock star treatment, while the 2nd Amendment rights of the citizen be damned, and a culture and class of welfare recipients that would make even the Cook County and Kalifornistan residents jealous. Thank the Lord that there are still some good kids that did what was right. I hope they grow up into great adults, and even better parents.
