Stupid Asshat Parent Behaving Badly


I didn't know whether to file this under "Did You Eat a Steaming Bowl of Stupid for Breakfast?" or "Asshat of the Week" or "Parents Behaving Badly". It's so nasty that it seems to encompass all three.

So I'm going to call it Stupid Asshat Parent Behaving Badly. Really really badly.

Julie Figueroa was recently convicted of forcing her 12-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter to take explicit nude photos of herself so she could put them on the internet to meet men. Some of the pictures were taken with her son's cell phone camera, and he took it to school and shared the photos with his friends. [eww. ewwwwww]

The kids are now in the custody of their father.

Figueroa apparently didn't comprehend the potential damage to her children or the level of inappropriateness involved in this crime. She came to her sentencing wearing a pair of tight jeans that had "Booty" on one butt cheek and "Licious" on the other---emblazoned in rhinestones.

I'm sure that wasn't lost on the judge.

She was sentenced to 9 to 48 months in prison. As she was handcuffed and let from the courtroom, her 20-year-old daughter went into a rant.

"This isn't fair!" she screamed.

I agree.

No child should be forced to take beaver shots of Mommy.

What in the hell is wrong with people?

Gross... That's wrong on so many levels. Maybe I should stop forcing the cats take "art" photos of me??

"Figueroa pleaded guilty on Oct. 17. At that hearing the elder daughter did not provide her name, but told Baratta her mother had "mental disabilities."

I agree with the daughter. Her mother is a frickin' nut case.

"Mental disabilities" - big time. Those poor kids.
Stuff like this makes my parental failings seem miniscule. (Not that I have many...!!)

"Beaver shots of mommy"...it would be funny if it weren't so sad.

We had a stupid parent story in the news here recently where mommy and daddy thought it would be ok to lock baby in the car while they went Christmas shopping at the mall.

**shaking my head**

I think it's pretty sick anyhow, but if you are THAT desperate, then get the 20 year old FEMALE to do it for you, not the pre-pubescent male, ewwwwwwwww is right.
