I know quit a bit more information on this then anyone else seem's to know.Every since her oldest daughter was born she was feeding her food that she couldnt ever swallow, she couldnt even take care of her first born so then she goes and has two more? Her kids are always dirty. She has had Protective services involved in this before. But CHILDEN falling out of a Window c'mon now how the hell does that even happen? I know i keep an eye on my childen at all times. They are babies things can happen thats why they have MOTHERS to take care of them. If they dont have a mother they have nothing NOONE. Thats how it is in this case i hope she NEVER gets her children back but i hope they all go to the same loving family.

honey bun :)
you can not have a permit of occupancy if the home is condemned, therefore, you can not file an eviction onb a dwelling that is not supposed to be OCCUPIED!
Sorry, too tired to debate this with you right now. but...may I ask...why would I go to G.r to pick up the hand book? local?!?! when you just touched on it not changeing from county to county?
Have a good night/morning.
Really, do you not recall the apartment complex, on, I believe it was Eastern, just last year, in which all the tenants were given notice to move out because the apartments had been condemned, and I believe it was 30 days they were given; hmmmmmm

And no, Landlord/Tenant Laws are STATE Laws, not County;

The drive from Muskegon to the Grand Rapids Court House, even from the furthest point in Muskegon, would be what, 30 minutes? Don't get out much, do you? Might explain your lack of KNOWledge on this topic

You likewise, have a great day...and...try to get out a little

I am just sorry this accident with the 2 children has brought up all those sad memories for you and the loss you suffered.
Oh boo hoo. You have been in hiding all these months and all of a sudden you post under your real name to stick up for Bri, what happened to the other names you have been posting under. You could have just sent Bri a message and let her know it was you then you wouldn't have to come out of hiding. I thought you were totally against people sicking up for each other on here.
Why don't you just go crawl back under your porch?

Shush now. Texas has no authority when it comes to child protection issues. FLDS?

If CPS was involved on past occasions, than CPS is to blame for children falling out of the window. Apparently if the mother was so bad that someone had to call CPS, she shouldn't have had children in the home. PERIOD! CPS killed the babies.

Obviously you noticed I have not been on, that shows how "your" life is going.
So Thank-You all for noticing. Have a great day!

NO, sure don't recall it, I have a life and do not read every single thread and am not on this forum daily!
weather I get out much, is none of your buisness, when your point is worthless,the next move is to attack, I know.

I guarantee you that the city shut them down, not the landlord you fool!
as I said, you can not get a permit of occupancy, if the dwelling is not up to code.
I am willing to bet the "CITY" did their inspections,which led to the eviction to these people. not the landlord, and the landlord got a HEFTY FINE!.
if there if no permit of occupancy, a tenant does not even have to pay rent!(they should have their rent in a escrow account )
HOWEVER if the dwelling is condemned, there is to be NO TENNANTS!
why do you keep arguing this,of course each judge is going to rule it differently.
it is up to him on the evict, and time of which.

LOL @ you people judgeing every post I make, is that why you wanted everyone to be registered? I see you cant judge a unregistered post!
which will cause people to unregister in time..

I can understand how this could be a mistake. But, it is true that kids run before you have a chance to keep up with them too. But 2 kids. Thats a little odd. Somehow I feel this parent wasn't present when the kids were near the window. Watching what your children do is very important. I hope the kids are going to be ok.
I was thinking the same thing its a little odd that both children fell. Kinda makes you wonder what really happened.

Have to ask everyone keeps saying the screen wasn't in the window well have you ever leaned against a screen they don't keep you from falling. Hello they make things like bars that fit into windows to keep children from falling out. Anyone who leaves an open window without safety bars like that are just asking for trouble. It's not the landlords job to make your home safe for your children or other children in your home it's yours.

Ok what is the race thing going on here? We are all equal regardless of our color, I happen to be white and friends with a lot of mexicans,some blacks,etc. You all are stupid! I want to say something and I really do not care how you take it, but I happen to know some white people who have not even got a clue how to work,most are more concerned how to mooch money off people, illegally, for instance I have a white son-in-law who would classify in this category, he is pure and simply lazy and wants to live off the system, it doesnt matter on your color, OMG what is happening here is a bunch of nonsense name calling, like calling the kettle black.I hope most of you are parents on this chat line, cause if you are not a parent or have not ever been a parent,take a break. Accidents happen, everyone in Ionia and I am in Ionia, all hearsay is pointing fingers, the gal already lost her kids, now stop judging her,geez you all never had any form of accident happen to you huh? This gal is suffering, and I would be appauled for one on News 8, putting a story on here about my children, where is the parents privacy act coming in here at, you people need to just back off, smell your underwear before you point fingers, have a wonderful dream that you are perfect,because none of us are but God. Get you butts to church and pray for a good outcome in this because one day it will bite you in the butt for all the things you have said wrong.
I know people are not perfect but there are things you just don't do like leave a window open with little children, let you kids play in the road, leave things laying around that can hurt your child the list goes on and on. I for one im not perfect I have four children and have been to the ER many of times with my children getting hurt. You know things like fell and cut their head open, fractured bone falling while skating etc. Kids get hurt no matter how close you watch them but as a parent it is your job to have them in an enviroment that is safe. Do you not see the difference in having an accident happen and allowing a situation where there is a good chance something will happen?

Both children are recovering and are in good condition.

Lundy, 19, has a pretrial hearing set for July 28.

Just pulled up the story & read it. If I remember correctly, there were numerous posts slamming "those Mexicans,those illegal aliens, Mexican trash,deport them," etc.- The mother's name was printed in the article, and from that it does not appear she is any type of Hispanic. And no, I'm not Mexican - just "plain ol' white" but raised not to be a bigot.
