Woman arrested after locking daughter in trunk of car while she
(AP World 08/04 08:56:43)
visited husband in prison
HUNTINGDON, Pennsylvania (AP) _ A woman who locked her
3-year-old daughter in the trunk of a car while she visited her
husband in prison has been charged with endangerment.
Tammy Denise Swittenburg-Edwards, 31, was arrested Saturday at a
state prison about 95 miles (150 kilometers) east of Pittsburgh
after prison guards heard crying and yelling from the vehicle and
found the girl in the trunk, state police said.
Swittenburg-Edwards apparently locked her in after prison
officials refused the child's entry because she wasn't on a
visitor's list, state police said.
The girl was in the trunk for about 40 minutes while
Swittenburg-Edwards visited her husband, state police said. The
child wasn't injured.
Swittenburg-Edwards was charged with attempted aggravated
assault and endangerment, and is being held in the Huntingdon
County Prison. The girl was turned over to child welfare officials.
Swittenburg-Edwards did not have a listed phone number and it
was unclear if she had an attorney.

Another prime example for population control. I'm sure though if they take this little girl away now she will be ok. However then she(the mother, :eek: and I do not like to use that word for her!)will just as likely have another. She sure got the short end of the brain stick.

So which one are you wishing had never been born, the little girl,the "mother", or the "husband/father" who is in prison? Or do you feel it would be better if none of them had been born?

Just curious... :roll:

I'm not sure which lines you are reading between, but I am sure they weren't from my post. I said what I ment and nothing more! As long as youy now have me thinking along those lines though here you go. That poor child, if the mother ( :D :D :D I'm sure some think she should not be punished and just forgiven. I AM NOT one of them!

I prefer the term "voluntary population stabilization" to "population control". I know of no group right, left, pro-life, or pro-choice that advocates population control. I suspect this woman did not intend to become pregnant. You can blame the man, the woman, both or work to see that people that do not want children don't end up with them. In this case the taxpayers will end up picking up the tab.

Well, depending on how pragmatic you are, the simple answer is all of the above if you are.

With all the information out there for both birth control and STD control, all I can figure is some people are not listening. Everyone makes mistakes, some learn from others mistakes. I chose to learn from others mistakes because I don't have enough time to make them all myself.
