Every Child Deserves a Mother and a Father

posted by on November 10 at 13:00 PM

Twelve-year-old Ismael Nicholas Bugarin could barely stand as he and his two little sisters ran to a neighbor’s house for help Saturday evening, knife wounds on their faces and necks.

Carlos Zavala opened the door when he heard the children banging and yelling. Ismael, known as Nick, collapsed into Zavala’s arms. He had a broad slash across his throat, and a 12-inch knife fell from his sweater, Zavala said.

Nick died in Zavala’s home in the Valley View Mobile Home Park in Dodge Center, about 20 miles west of Rochester. Next door, the children’s mother, Teresa Bugarin, 27, soon would be found dead. Her husband, Ismael Bugarin, 33, was found alive with apparent stab wounds…. When the children burst in on Saturday night, Nick’s sisters, 8-year-old Jasmine and 6-year-old Sabrina, clung to Castellanos. One had a slash on her cheek, the other a cut under her chin.

When Castellanos asked them what had happened, the girls cried, “My dad! My dad!”

Keepin' it classy huh Dan?

Why don't you just go smoke some pot with your kid.

Or better yet, go on some other business trip for 2 weeks, while you still maintain YOU are some sort of parent.

Good job exploiting the tragedy and horror of these little childrens lives for your pathetic and pathological need to be a complete asshole.

God, could the narrative be more Dickensian?

The heart breaks.

Good thing they weren't being raised in a home without a mother and father. Just think of how they might have turned out then, eh?

If ecce homo is really Dan's spouse... might a divorce be in their future?
