Benefit for three families displaced in fire; One victim speaks out

May 31, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Utica Daily News

Jackie Maida awoke with terror in the middle of the night May 7 to her boyfriend's shrieking sister at the bottom of her staircase, the sickening smell of smoke and the heat of raging flames in her Herkimer apartment.

Jenesia how long you gonna use your surgery as an excuse, for not working ? You are a drug using drug dealing felon. People don't want to go to the benefit just because of you. No one wants to give their hard earned money to someone who doesn't even take care of her own kids. Your kids didn't lose everything because all of their stuff is at your mothers. The only reason I know that, is because I was trying to get things together for your kids after the fire. I was told by many including the school that they don't even live with you. It is sad that a lot of people are not going just because of you. The other families that have children that can use the help will not get it. So why don't you just turn your amount over to the kids and walk away. You are a low life scum bag who thinks the world owes you something. Get off your fat ass and get a job stop living off tax payers money. As for you not partying I call bull on that you smell like a walking bong. Get a life you loser.
I agree.. Janesia,you had surgery back in January....you cannot keep using it as an excuse.. you still go out to bars. cannot keep you too housebound. how about getting a job and supporting yourself and family!

You're a FOOL with nothing better to do.. no she is not kicked out of (outta- you slang using unedumacated idiot) thats why she still coaches right..all the parents speak highly of her time she spends with our kids .. The Lawrence family were the real victims here and maybe another family I dont know.. but you need to look into the antics of the so called lady that lived next door.. you'd smell pot wafting from her place just walking by .. her brother is saying now that he threw a cigarette away by accident? NO thats why she keeps quoting her brother did not do anything and he wasnt even home! You herkimer investigators need to re read quotes comin' outta that ghetto chick

isn't this what homeowner's insurance if for? Or renter's insurance? I bet they wish they had bought that instead of 15 packs of cigarettes. You make your bed you have to sleep in it. The fire was a tagedy, yes. But asking for money after the fact is a travesty. Buy insurance. let this be a lesson for everyone.
you know what you did you know you will get caught.. up the homeowners right?

So, anybody know how the benefit went? Someone said that the mother of the siblings demanded more than the kids and put on a real show for the flks in east herkimer.Heard she was at a meeting and screamed at people and slammed a lady's door so loud she shook the house and then tried to get her son to argue her battle. quite a show. If I had been the lady, i'd have backed out of helping and sent them all on their way! I sat at bar and watched the monster mother of the siblings talk to the girl in charge like she was a servant under her big fat feet! Saw her grab something out of her hand and stuff it in her pocket! The girl running the event was visibly sad, wonder what monster mother demanded for her kids this time, to hurt her?

obviously you are monster mother who doesn't want anyone to see that your behavior cost the benefit many people. They were tired of the way you act. How can anyone critize your daughter when you have the "poor me" act down to a science? The disrespect you showed to everyone was over the top and you cost yourkids lots of good wishes and donations because you are a bully. Also didn't answer what you grabbed from the girl in charge and shoved in your pocket- hmmmmmm I sat right at the bar and watched you.-

He didn't burn down his own house his scumbag sister did it. She was probably to stoned to realize where she put her dang cigarette. I think his sister and mother meant to burn it down. those are the ones that are money hungry. Can't wait til the insurance Co. investigates since they have got a lot of complaints or little words from little birdies.

<quoted text>FIRST of all "free bird": we need to thank God that no one in the three families was injured or killed: Material things are replaceable over time(some unfortunately were lost and are not replaceable): family members/people are not replaceable. Also we need to be thankful that the firemen and policemen, ambulance, etc that risked their lives were not killed or injured: so thank you so much for responding so fast and keeping the fire in control (you are a hero to many). SECOND of all "free bird": if you do not know what you are talking about-keep your mouth shut! There are many family members who care: there are alot of people out there who care who gave and helped out each family; there were many strangers that came forward and helped. It is wonderful to see such compassion and thoughtfullness people have in a time of need to help one another. THIRD AND LASTLY "free bird": maybe this needs to happen to you or a family member and see the devastation, hurt, loss, and pain the family has gone through after this fire. A fire is something no one should experience in their lives, but unfortunately happens every day. We need to be thankful when someone survives and eventually will be able to put their lives back together whether by themselves or with the help of many caring people. Also "free bird", a family lost their dog- and if you ever owned any pets,,,,,,, they are special, and that particular pet cannot be replaced: it just is not the same. Shame on you "free bird!" You need to think about what you write before you put it on paper!
Not to mention the trauma that the family will go thru for many years to come. I don't imagine it's to good a feeling waking to smoke and flames.

In a meth induced haze, why yes, yes they do!
Since when would someone who exists only thru the hard work of others and has no respect for themselves, let alone other peoples property, care what happens to something they didn't earn?
First of all how would you know it was Meth your supposedly from freaking Coventry Rhode Island
And second I have known Eric since he was just a small boy and he is a good hearted person
So before you open your big mouth to judge someone you don't know, and probably have never met, KEEP YOUR OPINIONS TO YOURSELF.
SMH WHAT A JERK.

Probably they should not be smoking. Benefit will surely free up some of their own money so they can buy more cigarettes. they are not getting a dime from me. First, try to minimize your expenses. Quit smoking, cut the booze if you drink, don't buy name brand products, etc. Once all this is done and they still can't make ends meet because of the fire, then maybe I'll think about it. But giving any money to people that will spend it like that is not right,
And what are you the smoking police?
Get a life.
