Mother Charged in Baby's Death

 The Clinton Police Department issued the following statement. 

Yesterday, June 21, 2022, the Clinton Police Department was called out to the Econo Lodge and found a 2-month-old infant deceased. Darla Luke has been charged with felony child neglect and the other children were placed with a grandmother by DHS. This case is still under investigation.

Prior knowledge: Darla Luke was charged with misdemeanor child neglect on June 7, 2022. At some point between June 7 and June 21, the Mississippi Department of Child Protection Services returned the children to her custody.

Kingfish note: The suspect is 34 years old and has nine children.  Hmm.... maybe I should include some of the unapproved comments made by people who assumed a certain fact.

How mentally ill do you have to be to have 9 children when you cannot afford basic cost of living?

That seems incredibly selfish and should be criminal.

Birth control is free.

There is no excuse for this insanity, and the gov't cannot afford to be daddy to all these unparented children.

Based on what CPS did by returning the 9 children to this jewel, is Grandma any better. Remember something about an apple and a tree.

I'm guessing the unapproved comments had to do with her race.

It doesn't matter what race. This is very sad. Hopefully grandma can care for all those other kids.

Is birth control truly free? Assuming she doesn’t have health insurance, would she have to qualify for Medicaid. There are some right wingers who want to outlaw birth control. That would clearly be a mistake. Planned parenthood does more than perform abortions. They actually give out contraceptives, birth control and perform tubal ligations. Not advocating for abortions one way or the other. Just saying once planned parenthood is gone, people will have fewer options. Not everyone will practice self restraint. Also, welfare should max out at 2 kids for 2 years. If you can’t find a job in two years, tough luck. After that treat it like unemployment. You have to put into the system to get anything out.

9 children, I have no words.

So, where are the daddies? It's all but certain there's more than one.

This won't stop until the government stops rewarding single mothers for having more babies.

But, but, "those poor children!"

Call me cold- hearted, but those children are not the taxpayer's responsibility. There would be less poverty and crime if people were forced to take responsibility for their own children.

What is genuinely sad about these situations is there are SOOOOOOOOO many couples who cannot have children who would love to adopt these babies.

EVEN IF you keep getting pregnant, completely ignoring all of the preventive measures at your disposal......for god's sake do some good with the situation and help out one of these couples. It is irresponsible to bring a child up in squalor when there are options available to prevent that from occurring.

11:27 I am conservative and I fully agree. Planned Parenthood is not the boogie man that so many pearl clutching Baptists want it to be.

Not saying I approve of taxpayer-funded abortions, but they do provide valuable services.
That said, these people (of all races) wont take advantage of free birth control if you hand deliver it daily.

These folks don't contribute anything of value to this country and just don't care enough to be bothered with any modicum of responsibility.
I don't want impoverished kids to suffer but we have got to stop rewarding irresponsible parents.

And in a society that apologizes for assuming gender/pronouns...I don't ever actually expect to see real reform. This train is too far down the track to ever reverse course.

You aren’t a real conservative. Turn in your card, RINO!

Democrats seem to think so. Just look at America's southern border. Whoop!

how did she have time to have sexual intercourse when she had 9 children to watch?

Taxpayers are paying for this already and will continue to pay. more to be paid if abortions are banned and we get rid of corruption. Corrupt irresponsible parents and definitely corrupt government organizations, DHS (MDCPS, aka as CPS) just another corrupt govt organization that masks the corruption through the confidentiality involving minors. Blatant corruption with very little that families can do to fight back. Oh unless you’re already in the govt then you can get funding for being a foster relative, even if you had the financial means to take care of your family without tapping into those taxpayer/federal dollars with the help of MDCPS. Being well connected and an elected official opens the door to federal funding (Examples: for chancery/circuit court clerks, other government officials). I had an attorney tell me that it was well known how the system could be used by well connected to obtain child custody involving their son/daughter’s children rather than paying legal fees during a divorce. Would love to see the statistics on how many elected/government officials have acted as foster relatives? Bet this wasn’t the case for the family with 9 children which is likely the reason they were returned to the Mother so quickly. DHS MDCPS doesn’t actually want to use those fed $$ for the poor people that need it. Current case involving DHS / Davis and News trickle down to all DHS divisions in MS. Pheel provided the framework for the practice.

She might be a crummy mother with too many kids, but the reports say the baby died from asphyxia possibly caused by co-sleeping. Co-sleeping isn't recommended by most authorities, but is sleeping in the same bed as your infant now felony child neglect? Or is it just a felony when poor women with nine kids do it?

11:27 Obviously you are a liberal with your 'right winger" comment. I have never heard anyone from the conservative side say they wanted to do away with birth control But, as we all know you liberals like to make up your own facts. Another one of your comments " Not everyone will practice restraint." What I interpret from that way of thinking is it's not the guns fault its the individuals fault. You also say that welfare should max out after two years and two kids. Where is your compassion? I thought only Republicans wanted to starve children and push grandma over a cliff in her wheelchair. My question to you is what about the two year old child after you take away his/her means for survival? It's not the child's fault its the baby mama and baby daddy's fault. The state of Mississippi should take these children and put them into orphanages. Orphanages are not a bad thing. It's not like DHS isn't pissing enough money away to fund them. You then take the parents and require them to get a job and withhold child support like DHS does now but make both parents pay. If the parent refuses to work then put them in striped uniforms and put them on the sides of the highways picking up trash. For those of you that say orphanages are a bad thing I would say this poor dead child would have been much better off had it been placed in one. The mother was charged with child neglect and the child was taken away but given back within a two week period. I know you will think my idea for orphanages is a bad one since I am a Republican. Do you really care about dead children or do you just like to have something you can use to bash us right wingers?

If it were up to Republicans, orphans would be in “Christian” workhouses “earning” their keep through child labor. Little girls would be married off by age 13 and never taught to read or write. History has recorded exactly how you lot would handle the issue.

5:53, in California, a bill to set the minimum marriage age at 18 — the state's age of consent — failed in 2017 after objections from lawmakers and liberal groups such as the state's American Civil Liberties Union. The state currently has no minimum marriage age and collects little to no data on child marriages.

Wasn't aware that solid Blue California was Republican.

BTW, what does your drivel have to do with reality?

If it was co-sleeping why arrest the mother that’s cruel and unnecessary! Arrest the people that are stealing and killing.

At times returning children to the birth mothers is much worse than leaving them in Baptist Village, Grands, or even foster care. How could she prove ability to provide care? another broken agency is my guess.

The "well off" white woman that got her cell phone out of her nice SUV but left her kid in it all day didn't get arrested. It was "just a tragic accident".

Anonymous said...

As bad as this situation is, I applaud her for doing her part in combating low birthrates.

8:17am is so correct. White people reproduce like panda bears, so this chick with 9 kids should be your hero, your poster child.

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.
