[/quote] But isn't the mother responsible for the welfare of her own small children? [/quote] You know most societies families neighbors help each other out. No one can do everything completely on their own. What is wrong with you? How dare you judge someone you don't even know. Did you raise yourself and never need assistance or did you have a community helping you along, even invisibley it happens every day and it gives delight to all concerned. [/quote] Chill out with your histrionics there . . . If you actually took time to read my first post, you would see that I acknowledge that the gov SHOULD be evacuating everyone with a certain radius of the sinkhole. But this girl is the mother of two very small children and it is HER responsibility to insure their safety. She and her mother acknowledge that there were problems 9 years ago . . . and yet she brings two babies into that environment. Now if she or someone who knows her wants to contradict that legitimately, they can do so. Otherwise, my interpretation of this is valid. Hell yeah I can judge . . . because every irresponsible, reckless person in this country is part of the whole of this society and when they screw up, a little bit of society is screwed up. And I don't know where people like you get the idea that it's perfectly acceptable for people to AUTOMATICALLY depend on their family and neighbors . . . perhaps if people were stronger and more determined to be self-sufficient, this society wouldn't be comprised of so many apathetic jackasses just wanting a handout and EXPECTING others to do their work and get them out of messes when THEY are perfectly capable of doing so or could have not been in the mess in the first place if they'd used better judgment. There ARE those who work hard, act responsibly and are decent, genuinely good people who may need a helping hand in one way or another and THEY are the ones we should be willing to help. And may I add this - WHERE is the father (or fathers) in this story? Uh-huh. [/quote]
I understand that not everyone can just pick up and move from their homes, even when there are concerning conditions in or near their area.
Hell, every person in America is being exposed to something from one source or another.
But this story about this particular mother and her two children makes you wonder.
It says a methane leak caused a fire in their yard in 2003, nine years ago . . . so they knew the area was unsafe to some degree.
Yet, she has a 2 and 6 year old . . . children she knowingly brought into that same environment she knew was contaminated and dangerous BEFORE she even got pregnant.
And now they're experiencing very serious symptoms and smelling several different odors but she says they cannot evacuate . . . and she wants gov assistance to be able to leave.
If you have small children and they are definitely sick and experiencing such constant and bad symptoms and you know that there is methane and whatever else being emitted into the air, beyond any doubt, shouldn't you find a way to get out - and then try to get compensation afterward?
I don't understand why the gov has not ordered mandatory evacuation for a wide radius of that entire area in LA, but I also don't understand how ANY mother could allow her small children to continue to be so obviously sick, knowing full well what's causing it, and not get them out of there.
