Dad outraged over sex pics

12/12/2002

By MIKE ZIENTEK / KHOU-TV

HOUSTON - Investigators with Children's Protective Services are looking into the case of a six-year-old girl who they believe could be in danger.

League City police say photographs confiscated from her home show the little girl was watching while her mother performed explicit sex acts.

The child's father is outraged because he says he tried to get something done six months ago. He told KHOU-TV he found sexually explicit negatives that included his daughter back in May.

"I was mad because my daughter was not supposed to look at that," he says. "She is not that age to look at that."

League City police say the pictures show the child watching her mother engaged in sex acts with another woman.

Last Friday, League City officers arrested 21-year-old Janie Melendez and charged her with indecency with a child. She was later released on bond.

The father says he showed the pictures to a CPS caseworker six months ago, but nothing happened. "That's nothing right," he says. "I don't understand why not."

CPS spokesperson Judy Hay say they investigated back then, but found no evidence of sexual or physical abuse.

"This child is telling us of a very appropriate life with her mother," Hay says.

Hay admits they could have done more. "We could have stayed involved with Mom," she says. "We didn't do that. We could have asked for drug and alcohol assessment. We didn't do that. We could have provided monitoring. We didn't."

The mother has agreed to let CPS psychiatrists examine the child. They will determine whether the girl should be placed in foster care.

Unbelievable. "Appropriate" is probably the last word that should be used for this situation.

Sounds like Harris county CPS is run by lesbians.

I wonder why they aren't considering placing the girl under her dad's care?

Why is that so hard to believe? Happens all the time in today's liberal schools. I can remember several girls pregnant at my middle school.

Because the mother is a lesbian. Read a little more carefully. The article says the pics were of her mother with another WOMAN.

I assume she followed the standard procedure and got a restraining order against him.

With that in his file, it's almost impossible for him to gain custody.

And all she has to do is bait him enough so that he starts screaming at her in front of a witness. Then she's got enough to go into court with.

I believe he DID read carefully. The FATHER complained six months ago to CPS. So why is he not considered for custody??

Is it any wonder why this mother would think it was normal behavior to have her daughter observe. After all the mother was screwing around at 14 or 15.

At least she didn't have an abortion. That's one postive thing about this story.

Why, what a silly thing to say!  How many times does it have to be proven... er- stated that men are completely incapable of playing any role whatsoever in the parenting of children?
I suggest you consult your P.C. Constitution before we send you off to the re-education camps!

If the kid's birth was at age 15, underage intercourse began then at age 14, or even younger.

My guess is that this was a porn job.

As I read this I agreed with the father, but what glared at me was the Children's Protective Service's spokesperson referring to drug assesment.

Although the 21y.o. mom in this case is portrayed as the villian (with which I agree), the drug assesment statement seems to have come from way out in left field. No mention is made of drugs yet the CPS agent seems to throw in the testing as a cursory statement of "tools of monitoring" and never raised an eyebrow to the fact that she just weaseled her way into a constitutional backdoor.

SO this agent likes drug laws so she can use them for survelance where other laws would never allow. Now I understand. (/sarcasm)

I guess lesbianism in front of minors with picture proof isn't worthy of legal interferrence. Ask Rosie O'donuts. But they do have a couple of open-ended drug laws they could throw at her.

Oh yeah, remember the juvenile in this?

I'm guessing he has a criminal record -- gang-banger or drugs, perhaps.

I wish the CPS people around here would take a tip from the Houston squad. That father had photographic evidence which they waved away after an interview with the child. Our CPS had an anonymous tip that our children weren't being fed enough and we went through two months of proof that they are fed enough - and OUR KIDS ARE ATHELETES. The CPS goon saw them first day and could see how healthy they were but, "We have to follow the investigation through."

Can I resign from the human race?

Shalom.

One other point -

What two adults decide to do in the privacy in their own homes is no business of anybody else. The fact that we have a 21-year-old mother of a 6-year-old child performing lesbian sex acts in front of said child should not be blamed on the libertarianization of sexual behavior in the United States over the last 40 or so years. There is absolutely no connection between all the private individuals engaging in consensual perversion and this particular woman breaking the law with her child. Anybody who wants to draw such a connection can go suck eggs.

But don't let your kid watch.

Shalom.

If dad showed the pictures of the girl watching mom to CPS, how in the world can they then make the claim "This child is telling us of a very appropriate life with her mother."

The father is lucky the police didn't arrest him after he showed CPS the photos.

If the mother was busy with her "girl-friend", who took the pictures?

Understandable. They're much too busy trying to separate Christian home-schoolers from their decent homes and moral parents. Gotta stick to priorities.

Logical fallicy. Nine months of preganancy and 12 months at age 15? It is possible she was 15 before underage intercourse began. Unlikely perhaps, but sloppy logic annoys me.

Speaking of Diversity...

A few moons back we had rented a townhouse while waiting for the closing of our then new home. Our next-door neighbors (in one townhouse) were a 20 year-old Turkish single mom with a 4-year old daughter, a 32 Y.O. white homosexual male with a 40 something, married boyfriend, an Iranian architecture student with his Asian girlfriend and a 38 Y.O. black male who was a golden gloves boxer and YMCA counselor from New York City.

It was quite a household but the fun didn't end there. One day, the boxer's girlfriend from NY showed up and promptly moved in. She was Mexican and, get this.... a dwarf!

I could have written a sitcom. I was talking to Rob (the gay fellow) one day and asked him if he ever got everyone together for a "family" picture, could I get a copy. Unfortunately, or rather fortunately, our house closing went off without a hitch and we were out of there in 3 months.

Didn't they take kids away from some woman in Virginia a few years ago just because she was a lesbian--no sex acts in front of the kids or anything?

"The father says he showed the pictures to a CPS caseworker six months ago, but nothing happened. 'That's nothing right,' he says. 'I don't understand why not.'"

Well I got a *theory* why nothing was done.
Y'all tell me if this squares with your take on the matter.

A public agency staffed (to overflowing) with hand picked & enlightened public union employees, right?
So this guy's wondering, "why" nothing was done?
Hmph.

That's just the *first* reason jumping out at me straight-away.

Then given the latest & greatest in classical conditioning brought to us by our *friends* the Liberal-Socialist pols, Lamestream mediots, Hollyweird, & acadamia??
Who in the hell wants to be labeled a, "homophobe" & watch their name drug through the mud & demonized every way from Sunday.
Whether there's any merit to the assualt, or not, it doesn't seem to matter when there's an agenda to be filled & *examples* are needed, post-haste?

No, the bed is now made & there're certain people who know what the score is.
There'll be no *outing* of people even IF things like this are known, beforehand.
Those in the social services either already found out or are in the process of *learning* that getting into the ol' proverbial *bed* they helped to make, ain't so easy when it comes down to push & shove.

Now aside from all that?
What can we say about this gal??

...just the average run-of-the-mill Y2k+2, "Mom"?
