Protect Your Children

As a parent of a 9 year old son, I know that my main responsibility is to protect my son at all costs. I realize there are certain things I can’t shield him from once he leaves the house to go to school in the morning, but outside of that, I would never put my child in harms way.

Julia Hudson, why did you not do the same for you child, or for the other members of your family?

There is no way in HELL that I would bring a man who has been convicted of several VIOLENT crimes around my child. Seriously, William Balfour (who is still only a ‘suspect) has past convictions for attempted murder, vehicular hijacking and receiving stolen property. Those are not petty misdemeanors. You wouldn’t want someone with a record like that working as a teacher in the school system, why would you allow them to be a part of your child’s life inside of your home? Even on your Myspace page, on a questionnaire that asked who was more likely to be in jail, you wrote “William Balfour”??!?!? Come on, you knew what type of person this man was!

I’m not going to sit here and place the value of a child’s life greater than an adults, but for a child to be caught in the crossfire of something that could have possibly been prevented, only if discrestion in regards to who they allow around their child was shown, is something I take issue with. The government fails at protecting children, the school system has failed numerous children, it’s the responsibility of the PARENT to protect that child at any expense!

According to the Department of Justice:

*An estimated 18.6% of inmates serving time in State prisons in 1991 for violent crimes, or about 61,000 offenders nationwide, had been convicted of a crime against a victim under age 18.

*1 in 5 violent offenders serving time in a State prison reported having victimized a child.

*More than half the violent crimes committed against children involved victims age 12 or younger.

If you take in account, the fact that Julia Hudson knowingly involved herself with a ‘statistic’, statistically speaking, did little Julian even have a fair chance at life? There’s the saying that it takes a village to raise a child, but if a parent knowingly surrounds the child with predatory animals, what is the village to do?

My condolences go out to the Hudson family, God will get your through this!

    I won’t disagree with anything you’ve written…I feel there is some fishiness taking place. I am still reeling from this news.

    I just heard not too long ago that dude spent 7yrs in prison on attempted murder charges. I was bum’d out when I heard the news of the kid, but I hadn’t thought of it the way you put it. Now that you have it does sound kind of crazy her being with a dude like that. I dont know her personally, but I’m sure thats what folks are thinking.

      My question is why would you want to be with someone with a history like his?? It’s crazy if you ask me. Does this fall under ‘ghetto mentality’ (yeah yeah I said it)…??

    the sad thing about this is that women need to be told and advised how to protect their children in this day and age.. we need to tap into our collective memory of what dangers we faced in times gone by… we could have been separated from our children at any time by forces beyond our control… and now women chose to put their precious children in harms way – for what? just so they can say that they have a ‘man’ on their arm?
    sad times..

    While I dont think its fair to place blame OR to even hold her responsible for what happened to her family, I do agree that women should do better when it comes to protecting their children. Just here in Memphis in the past six months there have been at least 3 children killed at the hands of a man (one was even the childs father.)
    Now I can understand being lonely, and I can even halfway understand why a lot of these women are so damned thirsty for a husband. But I can never understand having any man (other than his father or my father) around my son UNSUPERVISED. NO, he cant ride to the store with you, NO, he cant go to ya partna’s house with ya….NO you are NOT taking him fishing…or even to a baseball game…UNLESS I am there. (I feel the same way about men marrying women with daughters…) Notice I am talking about your regular run of the mill dude here… BUT you’re adding FELONY CONVICTIONS AND SEVEN YEARS OF INSTITUTIONALIZATION TO THE MIX????
    Aww hell naw…
    And they said on the radio today that he was a Gangster Disciple…
    *sigh*
    These women are going to have to get it out of their heads that having a “thug” in their lives is attractive. Its so not.

      finally someone with a brain,you see it just like it is. julia hudson is to blame for the death of her family.she didnt pull the trigger but she had to have a man in her bed at all cost even if he is half a man. a real man would never hurt his family.
      women need to stop being stupid,these people are dead because of her.

    well said!
    i definitely agree with you. there are too many women out there so desperate to have a man that they’ll take any man. the crazy thing is a lot of women are more choosey over which girlfriends they’ll include in their lives, than the men they invite into their beds. think about it. if we see a woman who’s supposed to be our friend acting shady, lying, or being fake we’ll cut her butt back in a second. why is not the same way for men?
    i think there’s more to this whole story.

    giving birth does not make you a mother,praying does not keep you safe. you can pray until someting like this happens,then you have to look at just what you did wrong. sometimes the answer to you prayers is NO. there is not hope for stupid people,they stay stupid and blame it on someone or something else. Im so tired of these stupid people not taking responsability.
