Every Child Deserves a Mother and a Father

posted by on May 19 at 9:48 AM

Two toddlers have been placed in the care of Suffolk County Child Protective Services after police arrested their parents on drug and endangerment charges.

Suffolk police responded to a Shell Road home around 3 pm May 9 after receiving a tip of possible animal abuse, according to police reports. They discovered a dog locked with its own filth in a small cage, without water, and entered the home.

Inside, they found a 4-year-old boy naked and a 2-year-old boy wearing a dirty diaper. They also found Jeffrey Littlefield, 24, and Heather Littlefield, 23, the boys’ parents, apparently under the influence of drugs, along with more than 200 used and uncapped hypodermic needles and “at least one hypodermic needle loaded with drugs,” according to a police statement.

Needles were in “virtually every room in the house,” the statement added. Also confiscated were two rifles with ammunition, several knives, used glassine bags and other drug paraphernalia, police said.

When Jeffrey Littlefield approached officers, he stumbled to the floor; Heather Littlefield was found unconscious on the bathroom floor, police said.

The "Every Child" and "Youth Pastor" posts should be archived in a URL all of their own with a name like "Good Chrisitian Upbringing" or "Traditional Parenting" so they can reach a wider audience via search engines. These stories have a greater impact when read en masse.

Still, you've got to admit that even these parents are better than gay ones.

These stories have no positive impact on anyone with a lick of sense. I haven't noticed anyone out there in real media world or even real blog world picking up on them. If they are so brilliant I wonder why.

They are a narcissistic journey for Dan Savage who can't quite reconcile his conflicts about parenting a boy with another man.

Maybe we could just buy Dan some psychotherapy time if he promises to stop using abused kids like this. It also clearly speaks to a gap in his ability to truly parent a child in a healthy non-abusive manner if he doesn't get why this is so wrong to these innocent children who are victims of abuse. As long as he posts these knowing full well they invoke sick jokes at the expense of innocent children I have to wonder what the hell he's doing with a kid.

Maybe every child does deserve a mother and father. I fear he's making the very point he's trying to combat.

Sick continues.

Bob, that's the stupidest logic I've ever heard.

@6: irony.

I'm just gald that drugs are a victimless crime and "We should just let folks do the drugs that they're going to anyway" (Savage's words not mine) Then that poor dog and the kids wouldn't be traumatized by this ineffective drug war.
