No, this isn't another Stansel Sextuplet thread. I came across this story on CBS News crime blog, and got me thinking how many DUMBASS parents there are out there. Let this thread serve as a place to discuss these morons. First up... 11-YEAR-OLD KILLS FAMILY, SELF DURING DRIVING LESSON; INSTRUCTOR ARRESTED * (Personal Photo)PORTERVILLE, CALIF. (CBS/AP) Eleven-year-old Manuel Silva Covarrubias should never have been driving. _Photo: Manuel Silva Covarrubias, 11, left, and Elizabeth Silva Covarrubias, 6_ But, under the tutelage of a family friend, police say the boy took to the wheel and started his driving lessons five years early. Things went horribly wrong. The sixth grader was killed January 12 in a roadside collision with another car. His mother, 30-year-old Maria Covarrubias, and 6-year-old sister Elizabeth Silva Covarrabias were both riding in the backseat of the vehicle and also died. Now authorities have arrested the lone survivor in the car, Froylon Gonzalez, the man police say was giving the driving instruction. Gonzalez was detained Monday after being released from the hospital where he was healing from injuries suffered in the accident. He was booked into the Tulare County Main Jail on suspicion of three counts of vehicular manslaughter and two counts of child endangerment. The boy's aunt said Gonzalez was a family friend who had been giving the boy lessons for several months.
Aurora cousins Hasan and Jonas Edmonds had been aspiring terrorists for months when they arrived at the JOLIET ARMORY on Tuesday to scout out a brazen attack, federal authorities say. In the car, Hasan Edmonds, a specialist with the Illinois National Guard who had trained at the facility since 2011, talked with his cousin and an accomplice about where the soldiers might be stationed inside, which rooms to avoid and the firepower that would be required, according to prosecutors. Hasan then went into the low brick building to pick up a military training schedule for his cousin, who was going to carry out the attack later wearing his cousin's uniform and carrying AK-47s and grenades, prosecutors said. If all went according to plan, the BODY COUNT COULD REACH 150. What the cousins didn't know was that the accomplice was an undercover FBI informant. In fact, federal agents had been tracking them since late last year when Hasan exchanged Facebook messages with an agent posing as a militant about his desire to travel to the Middle East to join the militant group Islamic State . The plot unraveled Wednesday evening as FBI agents arrested Hasan Edmonds, 22, at Midway Airport as he prepared to board a flight to Detroit and on to Cairo to join terrorist fighters overseas, prosecutors said. Two hours later, Jonas Edmonds, 29, was arrested at his modest two-flat building in an Aurora subdivision. Both cousins were charged with conspiring to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization, a charge carrying up to 15 years in prison on conviction.

I am just letting everyone know that I will no longer be checking my inbox on this site due to the fact that I have been being attacked by people who have said some horrible things to me and I really do not need it in my life right now. So if you want to communicate with me you have to do it here where everyone can see what is being said. I notice that I have some new messages in my inbox this morning and I will not be reading them ..Thank you.
AirCav and Vol have very good points, I can agree with some of both. How the Country is doing and where it's heading is mostly going to be based on one's local perspective. It is hard to be upbeat, positive, and forgiving of national blunders when you live in a 12% unemployment county with a 40% property devaluation in the last 8 years. There's a lot of that across America right now and,................there are a lot of true success stories out there as well. To the OP, good for the FBI; I was listening to a talk radio station (SCETV I think) and a major regional director was on there talking about (in some general terms) the many plots and potential cells that they catch and break up before anything dangerous happens. They have come a long ways in being proactive and preventive. I believe it's money well spent.
Went on a pull out for United Van Lines about 9 p.m. last night. Truck and trailer went down a single lane gravel driveway, through 2 S turns, and tried to make a u-turn in a field. Luckily he got stuck before he got through the ditch. When I arrived, I asked him if he pulled the pin. He said no. Took him at his word. Shouldn't have. Looked like a simple winch out from the rear of the trailer. He was carrying a furniture shipping crate, strapped to the rear doors of the trailer however. This required a low pull, under the box, attached to the rear hangers of the trailer. Things looked like it would be simple. NOT. Told him to release his brakes and let me pull him onto the road backwards. After moving the trailer 2-3 feet towards my truck I heard his co-driver hollering to stop. I went to look. WTF. I thought you said you didn't unhook? He said he tried but his truck didn't move. What an idiot. At this point the two United drivers started cursing each other, using the N word. I just shook my head. After relocating the wrecker to pull the truck back under the trailer, I told the driver to lock his trailer brakes and unlock his tractor brakes so I would roll the unit into locked position. I may as well have been speaking a foreign language. Nothing I told him to do was done and he started trying to drive his unit. This caused the fifth wheel pin to almost miss the plate. I called them both together, in front of the person that they were attempting to move. Read them the riot act. One more time of not following directions and I was finished trying to help them. Called their dispatcher and filled him in on what was going on, because I could see a fairly good sized invoice being built on. After re-attaching I winch the unit back onto the driveway, having to use both lines. One to pull the weight, and the other to slide the rear of the trailer to the back of the wrecker. I will say I was amazed that he was able to back the unit up over 1/4 mile to the blacktop street and only had to pull forward three times at each S curve. His dispatcher paid me by credit card. I left him and his helper in the driveway at the street intersection. His pin pulling cost him extra, He didn't like it, but the guy with the credit card was surprised it was reasonable. I guess most of the movers hire strong backs with weak minds? JMO.
Let the creepin' begin.
I fear the wurst. He quit drinking, then smoking, then the funny went.. I suspect he's holed up in Vegas with three hookers and an 8 ball., If this is true Jubal.. submit pics.. tia
zach just talked to jordan agian and said they will meet tonight to go over the whole game plan.... he said he wants to get rid of nahea and johnny (convince the chop shop too if they win hoh) but would be fine with naeha and johnny taking shots at the chop shop. I dont think zach himself would put them up so I bet him and jordan will throw this HOH. better chance of naeha or johnny winning
