  • 80 years would be appropriate if she soaked the kids in gas and threw a match. She did three things wrong: left the kids unattended; 2) left a pan on the stove; and 3) fled justice. The rest of the facts are simply a tragedy for all involved, and she was just 22 when it happened. The cherry on top is the fine. Throwing in a $10,000 fine for a kid's life is just inane.

    This POS battered an infant to death and got 15 years. Link Then again, it wasn't Texas.
  • The SAME fire?

    I guess there's some justice in that.
  • cepson: Well that will teach people not to forget things.


    It isn't just that she forgot and left a pan of oil on the stove. It was that she left kids at her daycare completely unsupervised. She was watching seven children and left them unsupervised. How complicated is this?

    She didn't forget she was watching seven kids. She though 'oh, they'll be okay' and left them alone. Four of them died in a fire because of her negligence.
  • I hardly expected.....

  • Who is surprised she's Nigerian? Outside side of Moroccans and South Africans, I have never met a people so willing to lie, cheat, steal, cut corners and biatch and moan about every. last. little thing. Hell, at least the Ugandans and Kenyans work their asses off while they lie to you and complain. Nigerians, my god, its like entitlement is genetic. If you gave a Nigerian a pot to piss in they'd sell the pot to the neighbors for beer, and then blame you for the puke in their shoes.

    Moroccans I have a special kind of hate for.
  • A woman convicted of murder in the 2011 deaths of four children...

    That's a lot of deaths for just four children.
  • willfullyobscure Who is surprised she's Nigerian?

    I just thought she was a welfare queen.

    I guess. What doesn't make sense to me though, is why nobody has put it out by now.

    She didn't start the fire? Was it always burning since the world's been turning?
  • One thing I hate about these stories is how the call it a day care center, which often leads to people complaining about how awful day care centers are and how your children are not safe. They need to distinguish between a baby sitter which she is and a proper day care center.

    A baby sitter often called family day care is usually one woman alone with children
    A day care center is a properly run business and has the following.

    1. A manager.
    2. A cook
    3. A worker for every 3 children under 2 and a worker for every 5 children between the ages of 2 to 4
    4 A worker for every 10 children up to the ages of 5.
    5. An accredited learning program.
    6. At least one university educated staff member in each of the rooms
    7 An accredited kindergarten program for children aged between 4 and 5.

    There is no way in the world this could have happened at a day care. Please start calling women at home alone who take care of children what they are baby sitters.

    Look at it this way: For 80 years she won't be able to reproduce and further pass along her idiot genes. Something tells me the 80 years is more because of the fleeing the country than it was for the negligence. There's something to be said for the kind of person that would accidentally kill 4 kids than try to escape responsibility when "responsibility" was literally 90% of her chosen job....

    /the other 10% was boiling oil on a stove at a farking DAY CARE, apparently

    Doesn't stop them from advertising themselves as "Day Care Centers". Honestly, I think that in order to legally call yourself a Day Care, you should meet all the requirements that you listed above. Not one. Not two. ALL of them. Your filthy house is NOT a day care just because you put those little plastic covers over the electrical outlets. Something tells me this winner didn't even go that far.

    /who the fark leaves oil boiling on a stove while you leave the house?
    //A goddamn tragedy for the families that their kids had to pay for this one woman's outstanding farking stupidity
  • This I don't get. Mrs Bruce babysits a 1-year old three days a week. That child literally never leaves her sight. If she goes to the bathroom she places him in his play pen or excer-saucer and summons me to the room to keep an eye on him. Heck, I'm a knuckle-dragging man and I know you don't leave a baby alone for a moment. Even if we give Ms Tata the benefit of the doubt and assume she mistakenly left the stove on, who says "Hey, the three-year old can watch the one-year old; Momma wants to check to see if they have my book at Chez-Target."? Even a totally ignorant person should know this. It no makey sense.
  • willfullyobscure: ...and then blame you for the puke in their shoes. 

    That's because I just puked in their shoes.

    Hell, that's the rule when watching school-age children. When I was supervising other counselors, I'd "steal away" one of their kids. If they never noticed, they'd get an ass-chewing. For babies and toddlers, I'd be triply-vigilant.
  • The English invented 'felony murder' and even they can't stomach handing it out anymore.
  • This isn't a good girl who made an isolated mistake.

    Tata had a juvenile conviction for two counts of arson. Link

    She lied about it on her license application and Texas DCF missed it in the background check.

    "Lisa Hayes, a Houston fire department arson investigator who in 2003 taught a fire prevention class that Tata had to take after her arson case, told jurors Tata didn't seem concerned that individuals could have been injured by the fires she started.

    "Tata "said she didn't care about hurting other people," Hayes said."

    "Jurors were also shown photographs of the burns suffered by two of three children who were injured but survived the fire. The photos were of 22-month-old DaJohn Ashley, who suffered burns on 22 percent of his body, and 2-year-old Makayla Dickerson, who suffered burns on 15 percent of her body; both children had to undergo multiple surgeries."

    And that is how you get 80 years!

    I don't give a fark about the $10K fine because it won't go to the victims.

    When I was a kid, my single mother ran a day care out of our house, so I'm getting a kick...no, wait a second, I'm not getting a kick out of your reply. Just some pity that you don't know what the hell you're talking about.

    Yes, a professional day care center has the things you listed. That's why my mom called her business a "home day care", and that's why this article listed this day care as such. Suffice it to say the woman in the article didn't put nearly as much time, care and attention into her day care as my mother did into hers, so maybe all she did do was "babysit". But let's not paint all home day cares with the same brush while we're at it, eh? My mom was the manager, caretaker and cook. She ran her own books, she provided accredited education, and she served generous meals according to the best nutrition information of the day (this was the 1970s/early 1980s). She never sat down to watch TV and eat bon-bons while the rugrats played with toys idly on the floor. She was always involved and basically treated them like her own kids, keeping them busy from morning to night. I am sure that there are many home day cares that are run with the same level of professionalism and quality child care that my mom endeavored to provide, so let's not take one bad story and run with it as if all home day cares function at the same level.

    Yo know 419 Eaters and how some people get all huffy becuase it's edumacated white folk humiliating po Africans just trying to get ahead? I love it. They deserve every bit of shame and scorn they get. Nigerians are born lazy, born criminal and born liars.
