I’ve got a news story to share, but the link will be at the end. I’m interested in figuring out at what point “the line” is crossed in the situation presented. What follows will be a listing of possible points:
#1 - A 4-year-old child is involved.
#2 - The father is now 19 years old. He has a 4 year old child.
#3 - The mother is also still a “teenager” (age undisclosed, presumably 19 or younger).
#4 - The father is a member of a criminal latino gang called the “Westside Ballers.”
#5 - The mother is a member of the Crips (she’s black).
#6 - The two were arguing over which gang the child should be a member of.
#7 - This was apparently so important to the father that he broke into the mother’s workplace and threatened to kill her.
#8 - Child Protective Services has no interest/has taken no action in this case.
The story’s out of ABC 7 news in Denver.
