Well, I just about exploded this morning coz I had no one to talk to but yesterday afternoon I found out my 15 year old niece has been put in a juvenile detention center.
It’s just shocking and amazing because no one in my family ever ever did anything like this.
And what’s crazy is it’s for a whole month, through Christmas and New Year’s. This is in Arizona. My sister and her husband divorced two years ago. Both of them spent years screaming at each other and fighting in front of my two nieces and this one just got worse and worse from it all. She ran her car into a house while text messaging. Ruined the car. Was put on probation. My former brotherin law is bipolar, won’t get help, and has hit and hurt my sister many times but she would never report it. My niece said he was choking her in the laundry room for not doing the laundry right, and a teacher has pictures of her bruises yet none of that came up in court.
Of course I think there is some stuff not being told me. Like why exactly he got custody and not my sister. They both did wrong things for a few years, but I don’t know, they met in 9th grade in high school and spent 20 years together… but they just haven’t behaved right in frnt of their kids that’s for sure and this girl is paying for it.
I feel so sorry for her, someone who should be learning things and having a good time. She was kicked out of one school when she was younger… ick. But a detention center when all she did was run to the neighbor lady who has 4 kids and that woman took her in. My brotherinlaw said she ran away period and the parole officer hates my sister… first she said my niece could go home with her mother the next day, then changed her mind. I don’t get it. My bil has a great ability to charm people, it’s amazing, but I’ve seen him change into a crazed thing, my mum used to call him Dr. Jekyl & Mr. Hyde.
Ok. I probably should delete this. But maybe someone has had something like this happen.
Such a beautiful world, what a drag people can’t thank god each day and enjoy it.
