Just because the weather is getting slightly cooler doesn’t mean it’s OK to leave a 15 month old baby in the car while you go shopping in a zombified state.
WBZ: A mother is accused of leaving her 15-month-old child alone in a car Sunday afternoon at a Millbury mall. Sheila Parslow, 38, is facing child endangerment and drug possession charges. Millbury Police Chief Donald Desorcy told WBZ-TV that a customer at The Shoppes At Blackstone Valley noticed the sleeping child inside the car just after noon. The car was locked with its windows rolled up, police said. A responding officer was in the process of using a small hammer to break the car window when Parslow came running out of a store, police said. Paramedics checked out the child at the scene and determined they did not need to be hospitalized.
Parslow was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment of a child and possession of a Class A drug (Oxycodone). Police gave custody of the child to another family member who came the scene. Authorities have filed a report with the Department of Children & Families. Parslow is expected to be arraigned Monday in Worcester District Court.
The most amazing part of this story is that this woman was able to drive to the Millbury mall and park her car without smashing into anything. Seriously, she can’t even open her eyes.
There are zombies in the walking dead who look more capable of operating a vehicle than she does.
And I highly doubt she “forgot” to bring her kid in either. This was just deliberate, lazy parenting on the part of a person who was way too high to care about the well being of their child. Anyone with a kid that young has been in a situation like this before. If you drive for more than 10 minutes in the middle of the day your kid is gonna fall asleep in the car. You know that if you take them out halfway through a nap they’re going to grumpy and cranky, and will likely ruin your shopping experience. Welcome to parenting. Deal with it and move on with your life.
Instead of dealing with the minor inconvenience of a grump child in Marshall’s she elected instead to endanger her kid’s life, and couldn’t even be bothered to crack a window. She didn’t forget her Oxy’s though. She can make more kids, but Oxy’s are expensive!
From the looks of her Facebook page she actually used to be somewhat normal looking not too long ago. This was from 2010 when she was pregnant with her first child, who she also appears to have custody of.
This was from 2012.
Hell, even this was from last year.
That’s not to say she wasn’t a junkie back then, but at least she could keep it together for a photograph. This is what a bad pill addiction can do to the human body.
It’s like a completely different person.
You know what the cure for these people is? Force them to live in the Gan Rivkah Center for a week. If the motivation to get out of that place doesn’t get you clean I don’t know if anything ever will.
The bottom line is that this motherhood is a gift. There are lots of women out there who would love to be mothers, and would do a great job at it, but they were cursed with the inability to conceive. I feel for them every time I see a story like this, because they’re forced to see these guttermuppets abuse the privilege they were given to reproduce. If you have the “disease” of addiction, then do the honorable thing and give your child up for adoption. They shouldn’t have to deal with the DCF roller coaster you call life as you try to get yourself clean.
