Ward 3 Residents Abandon Children on Hwy 80 in Rankin County

On June 21, 2016 deputies were called to the area of Hwy 80 at the Rankin / Hinds county line for three children that had been abandoned by their parents. The children were 3-years-old, 7-years-old and 10-years old.

Keyundra Peels
The incident was called in by workers who observed a vehicle pull off of the roadway just after crossing the Pearl River Bridge into Rankin County. They advised, when the vehicle pulled off of the roadway, two males and two females exited the vehicle.

One of the males was an adult and began walking across the bridge back into Hinds County. The three children were left wandering along the roadside for over an hour before law enforcement was dispatched to the area.

The juveniles were not initially able to provide law enforcement with contact information of the parents. Mississippi Department of Human Services was contact to respond to the scene to take custody of the children.

Quincy Peels
The mother was identified as Keyundra Charon Battle Peels and the father was identified as Quincy Montanna Peels. Investigators made contact with the two and instructed them to return to the scene. After waiting nearly two hours, the parents failed to return to the scene.

DHS placed the children with the paternal grandparents. Although they were left without water and shelter, the children did not require medical attention.

A warrant for felony child abandonment has been issued for both parents in regards to the 3-year-old. Upon conviction, that charge carries a maximum of seven years in the Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC). Additional felony warrants were issued for both parents in regards to the other two children for desertion of a child under 18-years-old. That charge carries up to 5 years each. If convicted on all counts, the duo could be facing up to 17-years in custody of MDOC.

It makes me wonder if this isn't the second "politically motivated" action of the day.

'Twas a noble attempt, by poorly implemented, to save the children from a life in Jackson. How horrible for the mom that she'd be desperate enough to do this.

There are approximately 500000 children in foster care in the U.S. There are 60000 confirmed cases of neglect and abuse every WEEK.
20000 babies are abandoned in hospitals each year.
Most of the girls who grow up in foster care will try to create their own family by having babies before age 21.
25% of all those in prison grew up in foster care.
The outcome for these children was better when we had a system of state and federally supported children's homes with professional staffs that were regulated and where social workers could more easily monitor the children in the 40's and into the 60's in communities where there was strong support.
Unfortunately, taxes are how you pay for first rate care for children who are abandoned and parental rights trump the right of the child to be adopted into a loving family.
Abandon your kid and just visit once in a while and someone else can try to raise your kids and they can be constantly reminded your promises mean nothing and you don't really love them. If your parents don't love you, how can you expect anyone else to love you? That's the way they feel.

See the problem?

Dang, they both had the same last name. Would have held out hope that this was sorta like old days where there was a real family unit and the kids had a shot at life...

So the solution to the problem you present 7:11 is higher taxes, right?

Our great state of Mississippi doesn't condone abortion. However, we are into forcing women to have unwanted children, although we are not willing to assist with their care. Governor Bryant and Tate Reeves are constantly reducing budgets for services, such as the Health Dept, which would have been a great place to obtain contraception. The state is always harping family values, but wouldn't you rather allow the mother to abort the child(ren) than grow up in what clearly appears to be a screwed up family situation.

Has anyone stopped to ponder the effect of our Mississippi Republican Styled Family Values as a contributing factor to our juvenile delinquent to prison pipeline? I bet if you check the records in 3-5 years, that male child that was abandoned on the side of the road will very likely be on the juvenile books.

The headline could've just read "Couple abandons children in Rankin County" instead of "Ward 3 Couple abandons children in Rankin County." Does it matter where these people were from? The big picture here is that these children were left on side of the road. If it was white people that left their children on side of the road, I guess they would be called "trailer park white trash." Once again Kingfish you are placing the race card.

If they are now wanted fugitives, I wonder how in the world there are already mug shots of them??

@8:27am So are you saying that we should force abortion onto those deemed by your ilk as unfit to raise children? You come up with the plan, the determinants and execution of this and you may sway some republicans to vote for it. If you just want 'choice' for abortion go stick a sock in it. Plenty of Blue States and large cities across america have 'choice' and they have the same babies having babies problem we do - causing a burden to society and tax bases. When it gets down to it, low-income, welfare seeking youth 'choose' babies every time.

" Governor Bryant and Tate Reeves are constantly reducing budgets for services, such as the Health Dept, which would have been a great place to obtain contraception." 8:27, CERTAINLY you're not making the claim that budget reductions prevented the Health Department from making contraceptives available, and thereby, contributed to situations like this, are you? Well, are you, Sandra Fluke?

As 8:27 would have you believe the Republicans have been in charge in Mississippi since Reconstruction or, at the minimum, at least the last 65 years.

Anonymous said...

So, are you saying @8:38 AM that KF added 'Ward 3'?

Anonymous said...

8:27 - here's an idea, educate people to quit screwing everything that walks and make better decisions. A little self-control and self-responsibility goes a long way and leads to a much happier, less stressful life. Your folks constantly talk about choice----how about teaching people to choose to keep in in their pants!?!?

Get the liberal federal govt. to quit paying these Blacks, Whites & Mexicans to have babies. LBJ (Demo) started this whole mess. If you have a squirrel problem stop feeding the squirrels. But, how do you do that & let the birds feed. Think about it.

Sounds like a marital dispute gone bad.

@8:38 of course he could have left out 'Ward 3', but adding that makes it much more attractive clickbait to the Stokes haters in these parts.

Anonymous said...

Parents at least cared enough for the kids to get them out of Hinds county.

Kingfish said...

Why should I? It sounds like you didn't have a problem with Stokes calling him a dumb bastard and other cuss words, did you? If you have a problem with the title, take it up with the Sheriff. The press release was posted as he sent it.

Or do you suggest I start censoring public officials?

7:20 am, I am suggesting that we prioritize how our taxes are spent more efficiently with an eye to preventing more government expense later.
While the costs of caring well for an abandoned child in a group setting is expensive, it's less expensive than the costs of welfare, and/ or incarceration for the remaining years of that child's life.

9:03 am, I'm not 8:27 am, but if you are going to force people who don't want children or shouldn't have children to have them through denying the alternatives of birth control and education on how to prevent pregnancy or parent, it is hypocritical to then get indignant and judgmental over the predictable outcomes.
You imagine when it comes to saving babies, then you need to remember that they grow up to be adults and that the kind of adults they become is more than a little dependent on how well they are nurtured into adulthood.
Good grief , if you take Secretariat's sperm and impregnate the finest mare, and then don't take care of the mare or inject bad drugs into her, and don't care for the foal, that foal isn't going to be in the Kentucky Derby. We are mammals. Genetics and biological realities still apply.
The minute you commit to every child being well nurtured and educated from conception to age 18 and cared for until death if they are physically or mentally impaired due to genetic abnormalities, I'm perfectly willing to ban abortion and birth control. The miracle is in the ability to create and the devil in some man has interfered badly with God's plan. Man's agendas haven't always been according to plan. For example, polygamy in any form isn't just a good way to have sex with lots of women, it's also a way to increase your tribe and thus your power over that tribe. I don't think that's what God had in mind, but man can manipulate religions to say it was when they get to prophesying or writing.

The sad fact is that not every adult should have children. Our govt. has decided to reward some people for the number of children they have while not being able to raise a single one. Of course these kids grow up to be a ward of the state until they die. That is the way they were raised and taught.
Get the govt. out of the business of selecting parents and using tax payers money to pay for their lack of knowledge. Return the job of raising kids to those who choose to have them. Stop rewarding adults for having kids when they know they cannot raise them.

Anyone who leaves their kids in Rankin County should be thrown under the jail at Gitmo and given Dylann Roof as a cellmate.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
