Ethan Stacy: WTG Lu and Anissa!! WHY this case hits SO HARD to ME!

So proud of my friends Lucinda and Anissa for organizing this event! GREAT JOB LADIES!! I was in TX and unable to participate, but it was a GREAT SUCCESS!!

Some people don't understand the purpose of a WALK for a CAUSE... Some of the comments are so illogical!! Well, if you don't get it, don't do it... Let those that feel like doing SOMETHING is better than nothing DO IT!! Whatever helps them DEAL with the event/cause/tragedy, etc... and to spread their point of VIEW IS a WORTHY CAUSE!!! To think of the fear and violence this poor child had to go through... and KNOWING that this mother was already found unstable to be his custodial parent, and that the father repeatedly petitioned the courts not to send him... What is WRONG with this nation's court system??? TOO MUCH!!! Yes! I DO believe that if there is cause with a parent or their significant other that will have access to the child, there should be exceptions to the typical parental rights... And they lived in an APARTMENT!!! Are you trying to TELL ME that NONE of the neighboring tenants could hear anything that would raise a red flag??? I'm NOT buying it! 

No, there is NO JUSTICE on this EARTH for this child or TOO MANY OTHERS... I will NOT stand between any of the perpetrators and GOD!

St Matthew 18:

   6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

  7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!

  8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.

  9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

This whole story hit too close to home for me and not in a good way. I have a sister that is unstable and chooses to stay in a relationship with an unstable and abusive man. He has come close to killing HER on more than one occasion. Then he talks sweet and she DEFENDS HIM. Then the cycle repeats. She gets in situations where he's threatening and violent and she's afraid of him and doesn't want to upset him... She IS AWARE of what he is capable of and CHOOSES to STAY!! And ALL of us that try to help her in any way are only USABLE in a CRISIS and then we're the ENEMY AGAIN when she CHOOSES HIM AGAIN!! She has 2 boys... She does NOT have custody, but this person frequently is LIVING with her and they come visit. I'm sorry... If she CHOOSES to jeopardize HER life... that's one thing... but that jeopardizes THEIRS! She is SURE he wouldn't HURT THEM... ???? And she has been SO RESPONSIBLE in the choices for her OWN LIFE... If she were AWAY from this monster and doing the things she needs to to remain stable... I am ALL for her having a close relationship with those boys! I LOVE HER and THEM!! But her EX (whom I'm not that thrilled with, either...) has no choice but to send them. SHE NEEDS TO WAKE UP!!! ESPECIALLY with this case with Ethan... If she TRULY believes that her boys are not in a good environment for them... WHY wouldn't she do EVERYTHING in her POWER to PROVIDE a BETTER environment as an alternative for them??? Instead, she offers a worse AND more DANGEROUS one... Sorry sis... LOVE YOU, BUT...   *sigh*

So I feel that this WALK and the one the following day... as well as ALL the other events going on ARE ACCOMPLISHING something!! It's SHOWING that there ARE PEOPLE that give a DARN!!! There are many willing to put aside their busy lives for a bit and SHOW that they are NOT OK with the messed up system  that will allow abuse OR those that ABUSE!!! Have you read the statements??? It's HEART WRENCHING to read what this boy had to endure at the hands of this man and his idiot mother. Mental disorder, drugs.... NO EXCUSES!!! WRONG IS WRONG and inside they KNOW IT REGARDLESS!! They even stated that they didn't want anyone to SEE him due to the swelling... They were more concerned with HIDING than HELPING and they KNEW it was WRONG!! And WHAT CENTURY are they FROM thinking disfiguring his sweet body would delay identification???? Have they NEVER WATCHED ANY CRIME DRAMA show on the freaking TV??? DNA TRUMPS ALL!!! GAH!!!
I can't find the "Probable Cause" Documents anymore... They must have removed them... They were HORRENDOUS!! I read them before I went to TX... at any rate... Rest in Peace sweet Ethan and to the REST of the WORLD... ABUSE is NOT OK in ANY FORM!!! STOP DOING IT!! STOP LOOKING THE OTHER WAY when you're AROUND IT!!!  I'm talking physical, emotional, sexual, child, senior, spousal/partner, etc... ALL OF IT!!! JUST STOP!!! If you CAN'T, GET HELP NOW!!! If you DON'T, may you have NO MERCY and be DAMNED ETERNALLY!!!
