The Truth Hurts

Spanishburg, WV

#1 Jun 25, 2010
If you people think for one minute that you have more rights to your children than their grandparents, then I think that the public has the right to know the truth! I too, believed this, that was until my niece, Shonda Tanner, aka Shonda Linkinoggor, lost full custody (temporary) of her two children to the paternal grandparents, who happens to be the ex-husbands father and mother.

My niece is allowed visitation with the children once a week for 4 hours. Why? Because these grandparents testified that my niece purposely burnt her children with cigarettes and it is nothing more than a bunch of LIES!! How in the hell are you suppose to respect these individuals? Why would anyone want to put these children through a horrific experience and rob them of their mother? Of course, it's obvious why things have turned out in their favor being that the grandparents are reputable individuals in our county.

Things aren't always what they seem and people aren't always who they pretend to be. I would be embarrassed to show my face in Clay County walking around with someone's else children that I stole from their mother especially when you have to lie to get what you want! If I have to swear under oath to tell the truth, why didn't they have to? In my opinion, the courts and these grandparents are depriving these children of their right to be loved by their mother and it interferes with a relationship of a child – parent. No matter what....they will NEVER take the place of their biological mother. Shame on you people!!

We need to stop the abuse of innocent children caught in the crossfire of people they love. The system needs help. And people need help too, who purposely manipulate it. It irritates me whenever people pretend to be something that they are not. It nothing more than a Kangaroo Court in Clay County!

We want back what was wrongfully stolen from us and I can honestly say that I have NEVER stolen something that wasn't mine. Apparently, some people have boring, miserable lives and they cannot stand to see everyone else happy and they envy it. My niece has the right to raise and love her children, therefore, why don't the grandparents consider adoption as a option!

I agree with you about the Kangaroo Court in Clay County and its not just in Family Court either. Regardless of what court system you are fighting in Clay County....its all about "money" and "who you know" that will get you anything you want!

People can be so cruel sometimes to benefit themselves and they could care less about who gets it in the ass. I, like many other people here in Clay County are aware of Shonda's situation and I think it is very sad.

I know Shonda well enough to know that she would NEVER abuse her children and there's no doubt in my mind that they know it too!! From the talk in town, I hear that Shonda has been doing very well and they should be very proud of her. Keeping children away from their mother is a hell of a way to reward her!

I hope Shonda will get her kids back I am telling you there is no justice in Clay County. Its all about money and who you are. They can't keep her kids from her she is a good mother I know she is. She treats them kids good she spoils them she buy's them things all the time she loves her kids more than anything and anyone who knows her will say the same thing. I will pray for her and them kids she don't deserve this..

Sounds like Joe Bob is getting very defensive and for what reasons? Maybe its because everything said in this forum is nothing more than the truth and they don't want people to know what the truth is!!! Can't keep it a secret forever.

Why is it so easy for people to tell lies behind the scenes but they dare be confronted about it or at the least...admit that they did such a thing? I mean if you said it, then you said it....and if it is the truth like you claim....then don't worry about what people think, right?

Shonda, whether she burnt her children or not, is not fit to be a mother. While we're on the family, neither is her sister Melissa. They are as worthless as they come. Shonda should be thankful she kept her children as long as she did. Their little "area" on Blue Knob is a known "druggy" hangout. I'm sure as their aunt you feel defensive, but they must keep you in the dark.

FYI: I am not offended one bit but thank you very much for being so concerned. The best thing that Shonda done was divorce that husband of hers because she probably will still be down there at that HELL HOLE! Nobody is perfect in this world except for God. Furthermore, she moved away from Blueknob and it was second best thing she did....the first was filing for a divorce!

But one thing is for sure....it wasn't until Shonda filed for divorce when all the sudden she was an unfit mother. As far as I am concerned there is no difference between a alcholic and a person who abuses drugs! At least Shonda is in a substance abuse program getting the help she needs and I think that there are some people who can't stand it. Sorry about your luck because she isn't going to give up. I have no doubts that she will get her children back.

I don't think you have a damn bit of proof that Shonda is an unfit mother except for "rumors". Besides, people need to mind their own business and you have nerve when you say that "it does not matter whether or not Shonda burnt her children..... why in the hell wouldn't it matter..stupid? Anyone who believes that abusing a child "doesn't matter" has to be a dumb ass and ignorant on top of that!!! Some people are so screwed up! Basically....you are admitting that Shonda burning her children was nothing more than a LIE and you're right....it is a LIE.

If Shonda was such an unfit mother as you claim then why in the hell did they have to make up lies to take her children????? You and everyone else know why.....because they don't have shit to prove it!!!

As for Melissa....worry about yourself and your family.....Sounds like u really need to get a real life. It's always the same shit around this county....people seem to jump to their own conclusions whenever they don't know shit!!!

End of Story!!

I was just wondering... In the court did the grandparents just say it happened and not provide any proof of any kind like pictures or doctors reports or something????? Had the children been burned some how and who did it?????? Not saying you arent telling the truth or anything like that just wondering how the judge decided to take the kids aweay from their mom??

Since the case is still ongoing....I can only say so much if u know what I mean. However, I PROMISE whenever this is all said and done....EVERYONE will know exactly what happened and it will be nothing but FACTS! I am sure that many people will be surprised just like myself. Just check back sometime near the end of August.

When you post something on Topix with a person's name it pretty much becomes available for people to discuss their opinion, so for you to say to mind your own business is pretty much um how shall I say this...Stupid! I'm sure that if "eye" were agreeing with you on what a "wonderful" mother Shonda Tanner is, you'd be all for that. But since she/he disagreed its "mind your own business" I know for a fact that Shonda is a worthless mother, I've been to her house several times. She never had those kids, they were always with the grandparents, not only the links but with Jarrod's mother also. the oldest little girl came to school with lice almost every week, its a sad situation. I'm guessing you think that Shonda got David addicted to drugs? hm, I guess I should mind my own business, right? since I don't agree that Shonda is the world's greatest mother? and joe bob says IP check, and you say they are getting all defensive?? I think its time for a reality check. Good for Shonda if she is in a drug program, thats great to hear. However, I also know people that are on suboxine and methodone and thats a pretty crummy way to go, because you just get hooked on that.

Sorry but as a mother you are here to protect your children. When a mother gers her children taken away they have done something to endanger the childs welfare. For example: doing drugs, drinking & partying, and bodily harm. Until the mother can prove she is fit she has to prove it to the court. Clay maybe ran by some dumb-asses but when it comes to children think about their welfare. The innocence of a child are pure and when they are harmed by their parents physically or mentally they should be taken away and given to those that care....whether it is a sister, brother, or grand-parent think of your children first.

It seems like you “As a Mom” are in the dark too so I will fill you in a little bit. It is a fact that Shonda has failed drug screenings for prescription drugs. It is a fact that both fathers to these children have failed drug screenings, the one father has failed for prescriptions drugs and the other for amphetamines. Apparently someone in the system does not believe that this deems you an “unfit” parent because one child is in their custody. If everyone is so damn concerned with parents abusing this shit, then why do doctors continue to prescribe it?

Substance abuse, drugs, drinking, etc. are not good but why can't people just admit it. If our parenting skills were based upon everything that we did, then 75% of the population would be considered “unfit” parents. The only reason you probably still have your children is because you haven't got caught yet and this makes it so easy for people to throw stones. The children should always come first and whenever you have to lie to the courts about a mother abusing them....well, you are putting your own wants and needs first!!! Again, if Shonda were such an “unfit” mother as people claim, then the grandparents WOULD NOT have lied about her burning them with cigarettes! Anyone who claims abuse when they know damn well that they are lying is worthless! Anyways, the truth is going to come out sooner or later...watch and see or hear!

Furthermore, Shonda has lived in Ivydale for several months now and I know for a fact that none of you guys have stepped foot in her new home....nor do you know shit about the lifestyle she lives. Who claims to be a “wonderful” parent here? I am not a wonderful parent but I am a good parent and that's all that matters because NOBODY is perfect except for GOD! I was always brought up to believe that the past is the past and there is not a damn thing you can do about it except...learn from it and do better! It is TRUE that Shonda is on the soboxine program and who cares if she has to take it the rest of her life....at least she is staying away from the hard shit! You people are ridiculous and its people like you that I cannot stand because no matter what you do....it is NEVER going to be good enough to meet your expectations....and its always the same shit coming from your mouth.....should've did this, should've done that...not good enough...blah..blah...blah.

Piss on your expectations because Shonda is not out to please you or anyone else and she will continue with the program regardless of what ANYBODY thinks! Who gives a shit about how many people you know on the program, etc. because Shonda is doing great and if you are not pleased with it...then go to hell!

So what if Shonda didn't always have her kids at home all the time...seriously now, who in the hell keeps their children with them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week? Maybe back in the old old old days but NOT today! Anyone who claims that their children are with them ALL the time...I mean ALL the time....they need a reality check! I suppose this too will deem parents as “unfit”....that is foolish. The real subject here is “liars” and “child abuse”, not about Shonda being “unfit” because I don't recall any of you guys in court testifying to it. Why? Because you jump to conclusions and think you know everything whenever you really DO NOT know shit!

People are ignorant! I am not familiar with any of the names discussed in this forum and I really don't want to know because it wouldn't change my mind.....In my opinion, it takes a ruthless individual to accuse ANYONE of burning children with cigarettes when they know it is a LIE!!! Does the word "morals" mean anything to people anymore? It is fact that there are people in this world who put their own wants first REGARDLESS of who gets hurt. I truly feel sorry for these children.

I can't wait for the BIG surprise!!! I am so excited to find out that maybe I too will get on drugs and mistreat my kids. And then my family can get on here and spill their guts about all of my personal shit. By the way, I am still waiting on my cigarette you loser.

I have to agree with you Care-a-Lot....Anyone who would lie about something so serious is ruthless, not to mention, they are heartless! I read this entire forum and certain people seem to wonder off track instead of addressing the real issues here....false allegations of abuse. If this mother did not intentionally burn these children and the courts still took them from her.....things like this send a negative message to the public!

You know in my younger days we do stupid shit, and you want your children not to follow down that road. From what I am reading people that abuse drugs of any kind and expose their children do not deserve the right to parent their children. How would they feel if their child got a hold of a large amount of pills or drugs than died. Poor old "so and so" he/she a good somebody they did not deserve this. Guess what you just murdered your child. Think about your children first...innocence of a child is do pure. After being a mom you want to teach, protect, and advise your children nit drag them down that road if he'll. Trust me you learn from your mistakes.
