(CNN) — Authorities in Mississippi are holding a father of five in the deaths of his children, ages 1 to 8, the state’s Department of Public Safety said Tuesday evening.
“The seriousness of this violent crime is unconscionable,” said Albert Santa Cruz, Mississippi’s public safety commissioner.
Timothy Jones Jr., 32, is being held in Smith County on child endangerment charges and is awaiting extradition to South Carolina for prosecution.
Timothy Jones Jr., 32, had custody of his five children, ages 1 to 8.
The children, reported missing from South Carolina last week, were found dead in Alabama on Tuesday, authorities said.
Their remains were discovered off a dirt road in Wilcox County, said Sgt. Steve Jarrett of the Alabama Department of Public Safety.
Jones led law enforcement to the crime scene, Jarrett said. No other details were immediately available about how the children died.
A multi-state search for the children and their father involved the FBI and state law enforcement agencies. It was launched after the mother told Lexington County, South Carolina, sheriff’s investigators on September 3 that she has been unable to contact her former husband.
“Neighbors told deputies that the children’s father said he was moving with his children from his home near Lexington to another state,” said Lexington Sheriff Lewis McCarty.
Jones and the children’s mother were divorced. They shared custody of the children, according to the Lexington County, South Carolina, Sheriff’s office.
On Saturday, Jones was taken into custody in Mississippi on suspicion of driving under the influence. When his SUV was towed, authorities found evidence of a crime, the state’s Department of Public Safety said.
A check of the National Criminal Information Center found he was wanted in South Carolina.
-Yet another example of the fine work done by Social Services and the neighbors involved. The weak-kneed idiot neighbors sit by as the kids are being abused and do nothing, and Social Services is nowhere to be found, as usual for a bunch of useless assholes, (I have more stories about social workers than the GOP has lies, so please hold the sentiments about hard working over burdened CPS workers, I was one of those kids that they let slip thru obvious cracks). It makes me sick that social workers are rewarded for the number of families that they keep together at the expense of the children involved. If a child is taken from a useless drug addict, KEEP them away from the useless drug addict, don’t place the kid back with a newly recovering idiot that has demonstrated flagrant disregard for the life that they brought into the world!
I understand the mentality of the addict, but the needs of the child trump the needs of the irresponsible parent and you will find no PC coddling here that you usually find with the ultra left set. I don’t give a rats ass about anyone but the innocent child here, the parent can take the Morning After pill before thinking that a baby will fit into her busy partying schedule.
What I find funny is that when there are a few billion more mouths to feed on this planet then the feel-good people with be overridden on their bullshit and the choices of how to deal with overpopulation will be removed from their hands and placed in the government’s. No amount of pablum puked forth will stop the decisions made, because by this time it will be too late and starvation will be widespread. In other words, the consequences of inaction will certainly be worse than can be imagined. We seem to have too many freedoms and so every flophouse idiot who wants to feel loved can go ahead and bring a child into this world to later murder, and get the compassion card from the idiot liberal social worker who wants to heal the world without any tough decisive action.
What happened in the above story was totally preventable and a tragic consequence of the failings of our system. If a great number of people need to be retrained to understand how to exist in society, then maybe the answer doesn’t lie in just fucking caring them to death, or loving the fuck out of them, maybe it exists in forcing them to comply, ever thought of that? It’s certainly NOT a solution that the liberals would choose, and not one conservatives even CARE about, but us moderate, free thinking, skeptical critical thinkers are gravitating to more hands-on effective solutions that just might take away a drug addict/criminal/slacker’s Constitutional rights for awhile. They will probably thank you in the long run for helping to solve their problem in a year instead of twenty, and probably save hundreds of thousands of children from death! Do you get sick of hearing the tragic stories of murdered children? Then get off of your asses and make some tough choices!
Getting back to GAWD isn’t gonna help either, prayer is as good as doing absolutely nothing. If the god Yaweh exists, then HE is a criminal bastard who should be BLAMED and not revered for HIS incredible incompetence. The lack of evidence suggests, nay proves, that we are in this alone and need to deal with this problem ourselves. The clergy has been almost as useles as Social Services, and the conservatives that mostly compose it only care about stealing everyone’s piece of the money pie. Good ‘ol fashioned critical logical thought is the only thing that is going to produce results.
