Columbus, Ohio What in the world was she doing there? Did she have a key or pick the lock? Was the door even locked? What right does a relative have to just walk on in an apartment occupied by someone else and just take charge? If I were Fairrin Moss, I’d be highly ticked off at my sister. Not only did she invade Fairrin’s home, she found that pesky little 3-year-old locked safely away in the closet.
Now, when I say “closet”, I’m using that term loosely. I’m not even sure how someone would use that space. In a couple of sources I researched, [they] equated it to a space one would store linens or towels. Maybe. If you only had two. I’ll tell you what. Let me give you the dimensions of the “closet” where this little boy was found and you tell me what it’d be used for. Take out your standard ruler. I want you to get a clear picture of what I’m talking about. I’ll wait.
Are you back? Good. Take that ruler and lay it down on your table vertically. Mark each end. You should have 12 inches. Now take that same ruler, lay it down horizontally, mark one end and flip it over. You should end up with 24 inches. That is the exact size of the space that housed this 3-year-old child. He couldn’t sit. He couldn’t stand. He could only lay in there and pray his monster mother didn’t come home until his fresh wounds healed so there’d be room for more. You know, a tiny body can only host so many.
The child’s aunt removed him from the closet and ran some bath water for him. That’s when she noticed his feet, his body, his poor little extremities. Her attention was called to the blisters that had taken over his right foot and the nasty blue and red bruises that’d taken up residence all over his little body. And thank God, she bundled him up and took this traumatized child to the hospital.
Sgt. John Hurst stated, “The child was beat over the head, in the head, in the stomach, on the side, legs, grabbed by the neck.” He also stated doctors had deducted the child was dipped in boiling water, feet first. I suppose this physical abuse, coupled with caging him while she left the house, pretty much takes Farrin Moss out of the running for “Mother-Of-The-Year”.
“The long-term effects of this, it’s hard to tell. Physically he’ll probably recover with some minor issues. Emotionally, that’s something that could last a lifetime.” – Hurst
Farrin Moss (23) was charged with assault and child endangerment. She’s currently out on bail. Her son is recovering in foster care.
Surely children don’t bring in that much money on welfare, do they? Enough to offset the incredible inconvenience and annoying features they apparently present to some mothers? Why don’t these people ever put them up for adoption or better yet, (if it’s money they’re after) quietly sell them to someone who actually wants a child? Believe me, there are “adoption agencies” out there who still sell children. It’s not quite as easy as taking the monthly allotment of Govt. cheese down to the corner in exchange for crack, but still…
