kahljorn you're prolly right :O

my girlfriend was on the phone with the cops but once the lady showed up for her kid they were like "OK WHATEVER I HATE MY JOB"

Pentegarn That merits a call to child services IMO

kahljorn not exactly the same as the original topic of this thread but the other day my girlfriend and i were eatting lunch and we saw this like probably 2-3 year old kid running around outside without pants on.
we live downtown near the intersection of two of the busiest streets in town and people drive like assholes around here. Anyway the kid kept like running around going up to people's doors, walking around people's houses, wandering around aimlessly and suddenly sprinting out into the road and shit ;/ plus all these cars kept stopping like they were gonna help/kidnap, but then they just drove off.

anyway after he ran through the busy intersection without even looking around we went down there to see if shit was alright. He ended up being in our sideyard wandering around where there's like broken glass and shit cause the landlords never clean over there and bums like to sleep there. we tried to talk to him but he was all scared and shit ;/ we walked down the street towards where he pointed that he lived and eventually his mom popped around a corner on her phone ;/

she didn't even say THANKS or anything.

Why do you post on a site called i-mockery if you can't pick up on sarcasm and don't understand what irony is?

You also apparently have a shit sense of humor and are kind of a wet blanket.

Pentegarn Why can't both be accurate?

TheCoolinator Bad Children should be forced to fight in Thunderdome. The only difference is that they will use Fisher-Price chainsaws instead of real ones.

Kitsa I still think that the child was an unfortunate recipient of a profoundly shitty parent.

Grislygus That's not the actual definition of ironic, but ignoring that I was convinced that Blasted Child was being magnificently sarcastic with his first post in this thread

Zhukov If you are addressing me, then no, I don't want to "beat" him or let him die, and I do feel sorry for him.

Blasted Child I can never tell if people are being ironic in here or not. Pentegarn, you think it's hypocritical that we teach Darwinism in school, but not apply it to our society? This is dumb on so many levels.
When schools teach darwinism it's to describe evolution - there's no subjectivity, no saying whether it's right or wrong. Schools teach about the inquisition too, without endorsing torture and witch hunting.

Also, the whole "let darwinism take its course" argument is just rotten to the core. It implies that we would have a better society if the weaker individuals vanished. I think the biggest reason our world stinks is political and economical malpractice, greed, aggressions etc etc, and in a purely survival-of-the-fittest society such things would thrive and not go away.

And regarding the child in question...you who advocate beating or potentially letting him die (allowing Darwinism to take its course, sigh) is this a typical i-mockery jargon, or do you actually not feel sorry for him? Don't you wish for him proper care and a good home? His problems are probably mainly the result of many horrible experiences during his short life, it's not like those factors will be recorded somehow in his genes.

Zhukov What you are as a child isn't what you grow into being. 'Darwinism' isn't applicable to humans as we have the ability to grow and change so much. Humans have different opportunities in life than other animals, and can learn from our mistakes.

And on the subject of hitting children; there is no need to actually hurt them. A slap across the thighs can let a child know they've done something wrong without actually hurting them, whereas taking them aside and explaining that jumping on the counter and throwing paper around is a bad thing to do isn't really going to make much sense to someone that young.

In my opinion.

Pentegarn It is his Guernica of posts.

Personally I too have always found it a bit hypocritical that we encourage teaching Darwinism in schools, but then in the real world we refuse to practice it. We have all sorts of laws that protect not just stupid kids, but stupid adults as well. Which leads to watering the human gene pool with more stupidity.

The problem with ^^^ this is that as a foster parent myself this behavior could be viewed by law enforcment officials as a mandated reportable situation. As a mandated reporter by law it is my responsibility to report suspected abusive or child neglect situations. If I don't report it, and something happens to the child, I could be held liable for not reporting it earlier. It part of the responsibility you take on when you become a foster parent. And it happens more often than you might think.

The Darwin comment was very witty, by the way, but pardon me if I don't particularly care for this brand of humor. It's not you, it's me.
