This type of thing pisses me off worse than racist people and that is saying a lot. A man walks on a freeway overpass in Hawaii and throws a two and a half year old toddler off thirty feet down. The boy was struck by one or two cars and was pronounced dead at the scene. This type of belligerent stupidity just drives me wild. It drives me just crazy because that poor, poor baby couldn’t do anything to protect himself from the crazy whims of this idiot. I have kids and don’t know exactly how I would react if this happened to my precious little ones.
The 23-year-old man named Matthew M. Higa was arrested shortly after when a witness called police after witnessing him toss the baby. Police said that the man was calm and smoking a cigarette as if nothing was going on. He had been left with the baby by the mother’s boyfriend who in addition with the child’s grandfather was left to watch the baby by his mother who had gone out earlier that day. The mother has to come home and find out that her baby is dead because of irresponsible people. Everyone in the apartment complex where these people and the perpetrator live claimed that this man Higa has always displayed strange and often troubling behavior daily since moving there.
This makes me wonder why anyone with half a brain would leave this schmuck in charge of a dog let alone a precious little baby. Are people that stupid and shiftless or lazy that he couldn’t secure better care for this child other than the apartment complex idiot? Neighbors say that the child had wondered off earlier that day and was returned to his home where other neighbors saw the mother’s boyfriend take the boy to Higa as he has done many times before. Which sounds to me like this was a tragedy in the making. My only hope is that the fall killed him and he didn’t have to suffer the fall “and” being hit by two cars. As of right now there is no official cause of death.
This tragedy not only affects the child or his family. This affects the occupants of the cars that struck the child, the witnesses who saw the man throw the child, the police, paramedics and bystanders at the scene as well as the morgue and not to mention all of the people hearing, seeing and reading about this. The only question left to ask is why, why would this man throw this child to his death. I understand that this is something we may never truly know since this man is obviously crazy.
Higa had been a patient at The Queen’s Medical Center’s psychiatric ward as recently as Dec. 11. Not to mention he has been a suspect in an Aug. 15, 2004 negligent homicide investigation yet charges were declined by the police and he was never arrested. Even though he was quite calm at the arrest he became belligerent and had to be taken back to the mental hospital for evaluation before being taken back to the police station for booking. Which only makes me ask again, why was this fool with that baby?
Yet people will argue that abortion should be illegal and all I can ask is why. Next thing you know you will have more and more ill equipped parents allowing perverts and nuts oversee their children ruining many, many more lives. With so many kids in foster care it isn’t as if there are enough adoptive families to take care of all these unwanted children. This is definitely not a push for abortion rights I am just raising some questions as to what are the pro life people thinking. If we actually cared about children then teens, then adults then the elderly maybe I wouldn’t have a problem with pro life thinking. But at this time we only care about the fetus and then once the child is born who cares not my problem.
Then people are huffing and puffing when those same kids need to have a healthcare bill passed. All of a sudden it is all about them, they don’t want to have to foot the bill for some poor people who can’t afford healthcare. So it would seem that if we stopped trying to make those poor people bring these kids here we could avoid all these other problems as well. Maybe we should also think about the family planning that we are teaching, because obviously this mother didn’t realize that she could just say NO. And now there is an innocent baby’s life wiped out on the freeway. Something has to be done; people need to start thinking and looking at the big picture.
Well I guess the importing; outsourcing pain has come home to roost so to speak. Recalls of our children’s toys are on the rise. It seems that toys coming in from China are tainted to say the least. Lead had been the big worry but now your kids might be ingesting the date rape drug GHB. What’s next we will have an influx of wonder woman dolls that are the heroin instead of heroine. The only people we have to blame are ourselves for allowing our lawmakers to sanction exporting all of our manufacturing to China and elsewhere.
Yet this is not a phenomenon that will happen over and over since we are in such a consumer driven society. We are out buying our children every little bobble that catches their eye. Never has society as a whole been so seduced by materialism. And it is this materialism that is making our kids sick, brain damaged and dead. The amount of name brand garbage that is pushed on kids from the moment they are old enough to set eyes on the television numbers in the millions. From Dora the Explorer to Elmo, our kids are bombarded like being in a game of dodge ball.
All I see and hear from magazines and mothering shows is everything that you need to buy for your baby, child, pre-teen, teen and young adult. I receive a popular baby magazine and one of the feature stories is baby must haves. It is just a large advertisement for all the unnecessary items that all the different companies are pushing. Yet the one thing that you don’t see is stories that feature items made in the US because that would be few.
The latest toy recall is the Aqua Dots which allows kids to stick dots together using water making fun shapes and pictures. Well it seems that if the kid ingests the Aqua Dots they will turn into GHB through a weird chemical reaction in the body. The children that have ingested these have either gone into a coma or died. The list for these recalled toys is probably longer than Santa Claus’s list. There are all manners of toys on the list from baby beds due to lead to older kids building sets.
Is our relationship with the Chinese toy manufacturers more important than our children that our own government won’t shut this obvious hazardous situation down? Because it seems to me that these companies who have their manufacturing going on over seas should be getting fined. But, I have always felt that if a company wants to bypass American workers so they can go cheap and dangerous they should be fined to bring that crap back into the country. I understand that this is extremely controversial but we are effectively un-employing American’s in order to maximize profits.

The report out today is that there are some 2,570 cases that were reported over a 5 year span. And according to ABC news about 10 percent of all children boys and girls, in kindergarten through 11th grade have reported receiving some sort of sexual harassment by an adult while in school. About 7 percent of those cases involved physical abuse, said Charol Shakeshaft, an education professor at Hofstra University and author of a congressionally mandated study on teacher misconduct for the Department of Education.Just think of the amounts that are not reported. Now we have another teacher running off with a 13 year old boy. And finally a death comes from a teacher’s sextra credit, where the teacher’s husband shot to death the teen student that his wife was molesting. This poor boy was victimized twice, once by the teacher then by her husband. When are we going to get tough on these perverts who are running into the teaching profession?
The way we are handling these teachers is akin to how the Catholic Church handled the hordes of perverted men who ran to join the priesthood and thus began the molestation scandals there. Mary Kay Letourneau convicted child rapist recently did an interview saying that she understood why these teachers are running away. She said that instead of allowing her to be separated from her children, she bore with her then 12 year old lover; she would have run off as well. The sentences are slim to none for these perverted teachers so that it is a no brainer as to why others come up the ranks and do the same thing. Schools at this point seem to be a haven for pedophiles. There are so many cases that it should be looked at like a serious epidemic in the school system. They can start calling the schools systems motto no child left un-sexed. Maybe the schools don’t want to take the time to pay attention to what these teachers are doing or maybe they are choosing to overlook it so as not to have scandal raging around their schools. Whatever it is, the schools are woefully ill at protecting our children.
I am going to raise another view on this issue and that is the race of the perpetrators because I really think that if the majority of these teachers were Black, the powers that be would put a stop to this behavior immediately. We see from the numbers on crime that Blacks are far more likely to face jail time and harsher penalties for the very same crimes committed by Whites. So why hasn’t there been a tidy little catch phrase like Black on Black crime, how about we call it White teacher on student crime. Now each time a teacher does her or his thing with a student we can talk about how White teacher on student crime is out of control. Because, isn’t it really out of control? I am sure that a lot of people will read this part and feel that this is problematic. But I am looking at the fact that when something that America feels is a problem is being perpetrated by a few more Blacks than Whites it is worthy of a catch phrase. Such as with the baggy pants epidemic, aren’t White kids in White areas wearing their clothes the same way?
Until we start severely punishing these pedophiles, because that is what they are, this type of behavior will continue until it is down to our pre-school and kindergarten children. Instead of looking at it as a victimless crime when boys are molested by female teachers we should look at this problem the same way we see male teacher on female student crime. I for one will continue to bring this White teacher on student crime to the attention of all who wish to read about it. We need to start asking our law makers what exactly is it they plan to do to fix this problem. Until we see the disparity of crime in America no one will lift a finger to do anything about any problem involving a large number of White people victimizing others. If you would like more information on White crime statistics please refer to a couple of posts that I found highly informative, Read them and weep, Statistical rates are not real numbers, Raw numbers don’t lie , and Black crime statistics are hopelessly screwed, I mean skewed . All these posts talk about the ridiculousness of crime statistics how they hurt us all in America.
