only stupid people are breeding

What. The. Fuck.

Bail remained at $200,000 Wednesday for a La Mesa woman accused of twice letting her 2-year-old son play on the trolley tracks near downtown, causing two trolley trains to make emergency stops.

What? I’m sorry. Did you just say this woman let her two year old play on the train tracks twice?

Rachel Gaeta, 22, is charged with two counts of child endangerment. She faces up to seven years and four months in prison if convicted.

[. . .]

At Gaeta’s arraignment last Friday, Deputy District Attorney Lucy Weismantel told the judge the defendant had been asked by a trolley security guard at about 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 25 to watch her 2-year-old, but she still allowed the child to walk on the tracks.

After a train was forced to make an emergency stop near the San Diego Convention Center, the woman was once again warned to keep an eye on the child, the prosecutor said.

Once again warned? Once again warned? Isn’t this the point when someone called protective services and takes the child away from this brain donor?

[. . .]

Gaeta, who has no criminal record, was ordered to have no contact with the 2-year-old and another 4-year-old son, who lives with his father.

Oh, great! She’s got another kid! Okay, we have to create a whole new kind of stupid, because this dipshit just blew the whole curve away.

  1. That was not a nice headline Wil.

    Maybe that woman did something dumb, but everyone who makes a commitment to have children is stupid.

  2. Mmmmm… beyond being a bit too literal against Wil, I’m thinking Darleene meant to put a “not” between “is” and “stupid” in her above comment, but I’ll refrain from the obvious ridicule opportunities.

  3. You’re right Will. I failed to copy edit myself.

    Thanks for letting me know it was from a Harvey Danger song, 5000!. I just have a thing against sweeping statements, in any context.

  4. I was refering to a Harvey Danger song.
    Of course not everyone who has a child is stupid.
    But this woman clearly is.

  5. If she’s guilty of that stuff, I hope she loses custody of that child. Even though he would be old enough to know not to play on the train tracks by the time she gets out of the pokey, this sounds like the kind of parent who would be less than diligent about knowing where her kids are, who they’re with, and what they’re doing.
