I noticed in the paper this weekend that in the article from the mayor of window he blames the white woman for the instigation of the park being vandelized. Well for the record. The white woman who he says instigated it didnt. SHe did purchase the spray paint for her step children to paint their skateboard which they had asked for when they went to get some Christmas gifts at Walmart. She was sleepy from driving home from Dallas. They asked if they could get out and look at Christmas decorations so she pulled over and let them out no thinking they were going to vandelize the park. Yes she did know afterwards when they finally made it home and she did get punished for buying the paint and is not saying that is was right for her to buy it but it really is unfair that they never got any kind of statement from her just the kids and of course the kids are going to blame someone to keep theirselves out of trouble. The ages of these kids were 14, 15 and sixteen all old enough to know better and lets say it was her idea she could not make them do it. She never even got out of the car. As of today she was the only one in trouble. she stayed in jail overnight and also had to pay a bond to get out. None of the kids got in trouble yet and also they lied on their statements. Why does it have to be someone else fault when they made bad decisions also. She feels bad that she was the one who bought the paint and says she deserved to be in trouble fo rthat part but not blamed for them doing the dirt. THis is crazy and how come they didnt get her statement. I dont think they should just believe kids and also on the reward thing of course anyone will do what they can to get a thousand dollars. the actual ones who committed the crime and wrote out the four statement s none of them even match when explaining what they did and one statement was given to one of them to copy from the sheriff doing the investigation how crazy is that? Do your job correctly and then accuse the right ones. As for mayor Don Simmons why does black and white have to be an issue here. In his letter it was four black kids and a white woman. Oh well if you can think color is an issue god bless you and the park you are so upset about and several people know what really went on. Like when they first went out to look at it it was not near as bad until several other kids went out and did more damage to add to it and also painted other things in windom to try to get the people and especially the white woman in more trouble. the sad part is the black people are putting it all on the white woman how can these people blame her when yes she was in charge of them but they arent little kids

Mayor Don Simmons says he wont put up with people damaging his park well you know what I am sure he might want to get his information correct before writing his statement in his crapy little column. I noticed he went on and on about Jan Cummins being such a great person. Yes he is but he tries to sleep with every person that he can young and old and i guess Don Simmons wants to blame that on someone too. HA HA just think about the situation and see the truth. Only god knows the truth but do you really think those kids have learned a lesson just seeing their step mom go to jail and nothing else happening to them. Especially when they are lying in their statement blaming someone else for their actions. WHat the law enforcement is teaching them is to do wrong and blame someone else for your actions and then you will be off the chain. How bad can that be. They are even telling everyone they are out of trouble because they told the police that their mom made them do it. THe mom was asleep in the car with their baby sister and older step sister. THe kids are lying so bad that they didnt even tell the police that there were several other kids in the vehicle . they are making them think it was just them and her. How crapy is that. I am concerned because I know the mom should have not bought the paint and should have told on them when they did it and she did say she wanted to take them to clean up the park but if someone saw them out there then they would be in trouble automaticallyu. you have to realize her husband would have been mad at her and it would have caused her many problems for telling on her kids. She was in the wrong place and shouldnt have went to the park to sleep but you cant pull over ont he side of the road these days without getting in trouble or someone hitting you. She has never stated to me that she thinks she is innocent. she even says she deserved to be in jail and pay her fine .. she bought the paint and will never buy them anything like that again but is concerned because how can they learn their lesson just by her going to jail and having to pay money.

Huff - Inhalants
Huffer - Inhalant abuser
Huffing - To sniff an inhalant

As anyone heard of the above!!! This mother is guilty of the below and should be held to the below Texas State Law. She provided minors with the spray paint which is a State Jail Felony! Come on!
If she intended for the spray to be used for “skate boards” then when she let them out of the car at the park she should have taken the spray paint home with her. She holds a lot of the responsibility on herself for not being a good parent. Weather it is her step children or not, she is the RESPONSIBLE party. She was the adult in this very bad and sad situation.

I do agree that the minors should hold some responsibility and nothing is saying they will not face a judge in juvenile court. This case is still early in the process let the law enforcement agencies and DA’s office and judges handle the case. Nothing has been carved in stone that the minors are going to “get away with it!”

HEALTH AND SAFETY CODE
TITLE 6. FOOD, DRUGS, ALCOHOL, AND HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES
SUBTITLE C. SUBSTANCE ABUSE REGULATION AND CRIMES
CHAPTER 485. ABUSABLE VOLATILE CHEMICALS
SUBCHAPTER A. GENERAL PROVISIONS

(1) "Abusable volatile chemical" means:
(A) a chemical, including aerosol paint (AKA Spray Paint), that:
(i) is packaged in a container subject to the labeling requirements concerning precautions against inhalation established under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act (15 U.S.C. Section 1261 et seq.), as amended, and regulations adopted under that Act and is labeled with the statement of principal hazard on the principal display panel "VAPOR HARMFUL" or other labeling requirement subsequently established under that Act or those regulations;

It is unlawful for a person to sell or deliver an abusable volatile chemical to a person under 18 years of age. Such an offense is a state jail felony.

And just a little “For Your Information” the mayor has nothing to do with charging this mother. The DA’s office does. So, everyone needs to get off the mayor’s back on this one.

Per Texas State Law these "little" kids you are talking about are MINORS!!!! Let's not forget that detail. Let this issue be handled in court in front of a judge and not on gossip blogs!
