    Children at home during police raid

    Kids at Home During Drug Raid
    Children at home during police raid

    MERCEDES - Police arrested two women last night after finding drugs in an apartment, along with one of the women's young children.

    Police say Mary Marroquin and Selma Sanchez were arrested last night during a raid at a Mercedes apartment.

    Police found marijuana and cocaine in the apartment.

    Selma Sanchez has also been charged with leaving her children at home alone.

    The house was in disarray.

    Child Protective Services say this isn't the first time Sanchez has been in trouble for leaving the children at home alone.

    She'd been charged with the same thing in May.

    Her children will be placed with their grandmother, which is where Child Protective Services say they will likely stay.

    Both women face drug charges, and child endangerment charges.

    Good point, and that's why I say "maybe".
    I don't think it is always fair to blame grandma for the mistakes a daughter or son made if she did her best to instill morals and values with their unbringing.
    A parent can have 10 children and 9 could grow up to be good adults and parents. One could grow up to be rebellious and either take longer to grow up or maybe never.

    Hopefully grandma is a loving and wise woman and the grandkids have a chance.

    Oh my god the police raided a house for drugs!!! They arrested the mother and took the children away!!! They should be ashamed of themselves, obviously breaking up a perfectly good family over drugs!! Im appalled by all this, and for the two of you for applauding it.



    Sorry I enjoy throwing that stuff up, I know its wrong but Im not name calling or anything. Just stirring the pot some is all (no pun intended there). Its reasons like this that drugs cant be legal, I will bet anything that they used also. And that would mean the poor children would be the victims here along with Society.

    *sigh*

    If drugs were legal people wouldn't be selling it out of their homes to begin with, BigDawg. Come on, man.

    It's so hard to call, I think both sides have legitimate arguments, I'm stuck right in the middle.

    I lean towards Rhino's thought on this one. if they were legal, sold in a controlled enviroment they wouldn't be sold at home, and I have always thought that.

    Hence opportunity for another healthy debate, which I will get back to later. I think it's important for both sides to see actual real and fresh cases.

    If drugs were legal, would (in this case), make the mom a better parent? Would she stop leaving her kids home alone?

    I seriously doubt it and would come closer to believing she would do it more.

    That is one consideration. Would the children NOT be neglected or abused if drugs were legal?

    Also, I fail to see how you can concretely say that drugs would not be sold out of the home if they were legal...assuming there would still be SOME regulations on the sale, ie age restrictions, potency limitations, amount limits etc...would not someone pre-disposed to criminal activity be anxious to exploit the breaking of those regulations for profit? Judging from previous posts by Rhino, even he in his libertarian views....(just kidding rhino) would agree there would be such restrictions, and such a market for underage useage.

    This article didn't say that she was dealing. As you know, not all users are dealers, but usually dealers are users.

    But if they make drugs legal, than I want to be able to go to the super market and buy a bundle of dynamite. I have needs too you know.

    trooper_hopeful_51 - There'd still be some market. How big would depend on the restrictions and the profit incentive to get around the restrictions.

    This being a Friday night I guarantee you there's a teenager in my little town standing outside a liquor store tonight looking for someone to buy for him this very moment. The restrictions create that black market, and someone 21 or older will take the risk of a contributing charge for the chance to make an easy ten bucks. When the guy comes out, the officer who was watching nabs him in the parking lot without incident. Everyone goes home safe and sound...some just not as soon as they expected.

    There's always going to be a black market. Even if there were no restrictions and meth cost ten dollars a ton, some are still going to cook it at home for whatever reason. Absolutes are rare, and really kinda silly to discuss - going for the percentages is where I like to deal.

    How many people are dealing liquor and cigarettes out of their homes? I don't have numbers, but I'm guessing it's a very small percent. How many LEOs or booze/cig dealers get shot each year? Now take out organized crime, how many home dealers? With those two restricted substances there's not enough incentive to make it worth the constant risk.

    Decriminalization wouldn't eliminate all violence, but the idea is it would reduce it drastically.

    Kids still get their hands on booze and smokes. They drive drunk and kill themselves and others in the process. I wish it wasn't the case, but that'd be asking for perfection, something else very rare. If I had perfect solutions I'd sure share them.

    Hiding a gold mine you haven't told us about?

    Actually the dynamite reminded me of fire, which reminded me of the kids left unattended which reminded me that's what I was going to comment on in the first place. The child endangerment part pisses me off.

    The drug thing, bah, not my favorite topic. I don't know how decriminalization would work out in the violence or the user rate levels - I'd like to see both reduced, that's my concern about that.

    Very true Michelle, thanks for the correction.

    BEB, you are also right, there are no absolutes, and I am not naive enough to think otherwise. I honestly dont have any idea about percetages, I dont claim to be an expert, I just shoot fom the hip, with what I like to think is logic and reason. I am always open to a good debate...as for the cig/booze example, I know bak east there used to be a HUGE smuggling problem with tobacco products from accross state lines missing the local tax stamp. I think the only way the government would ever legalize would be to tax it HUGE, and that would create an instant black market...again, no statistics, just my opinions...

    By the way BEB...a belated welcome to LEF
