Two-year-old Alexandria Hill was placed in foster care after her parents were caught smoking marijuana in their home while she slept. Authorities charged them with "neglectful supervision," and just months away from getting their baby back, the loving parents learned they would never see their young child again. Placed in a foster home to protect her from them, Alexandria was brutally killed.

On Monday night, tiny "Alex," as her parents called her, was flown to Scott and White Children’s Emergency Hospital in Temple, Texas with severe head injuries.



“They wouldn't tell me what condition she was in or what was wrong or what had happened," her father, Joshua Hill, told KVUE-TV. "The only thing they would tell me is I needed to be there. When I got there, I found out that Alex was in a coma

Two nights passed, and Alex was taken off life support. Foster mother Sherill Small was arrested and charged with murder.

“She would come to visitation with bruises on her, and mold and mildew in her bag," Hill told KVUE-TV, "It got to a point where I actually told CPS that they would have to have me arrested because I wouldn't let her go back."

Alex's dad admitted to using marijuana -- a drug much safer than alcohol or cigarettes -- but said she was never mistreated. "We never hurt our daughter. She was never sick, she was never in the hospital, and she never had any issues until she went into state care," he told KVUE-TV.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

So the take away message from this whole fuster-cluck is that legalizing marijuana will save children's lives?

...and what were the circumstances that the police knew they were smoking the wacky weed? I'm sure the police just didn't happen to show up out of the blue, there would have been a reason for them to be there. I have a feeling there is much more to the story about the kid ending up in foster care than what's being said in this obviously slanted story.

It's a tragedy that the kid died, that's for sure. The foster care system is fucked up beyond belief where people are basically doing it to earn a living because they get state monies for every kid they take in.

If the parents were not arrested for smoking pot, the kid should never have been removed.

Period.

And Streaker, while I agree that there had to have been a reason they were called, I also believe that reason could have been a neighbor smelled the pot they were smoking and called the cops.

I think the point is if they were doing funnels while chain smoking the child in all likelihood wouldn't have been taken.

Generally you gotta be doing some really whacked out stuff to get your kid taken away like that... smoking up in th same house as your kid..getting arrested with weed in the same house with your kid happens like every 10 minutes in the US (being dramatic) and you don't get your kid taken away like that.

Here is a little tidbit that shines some light on the kids removal... not great but better than nothing

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-...ds-newsxml

According to court records, Alexandria's mother has a medical condition that does not allow her to be left alone with her own child and Hill's marijuana use had become so bad he almost dropped his daughter down the stairs.
Alexandria Hill had been released from the care of her parents into child services protection after they became incapable of looking after her
The parents, who are not together, handed Alexandria to Hill's mother to care for - until the state intervened on November 26th.
According to the Department of Family and Protective Services, the family disagreed who should take custody of the girl and decided to involve the CPS themselves - until both mom and dad got their lives in order.

The biggest problem is that there is a whole bunch of CPS agents out there that have no concept of parenting besides what they have learned in books. You get one of those that get their panties in a bunch and it is quite easy to see where system abuses can happen.
The Second Amendment does not GIVE us the right. It tells the gov they can not infringe our right.

I have always been of the opinion that kids should NOT be removed from their own home unless there are dire circumstances. And foster care should be a little less politically correct. Okay, a lot less politically correct.

I have a sister in law who was pretty messed up and ended up with her eight kids from five dads being taken from her permanently. However, now that they are somewhat grown up...I'm of the opinion that at least the older ones are probably MORE psychologically messed up (or at least equally as) than they would have been if they had just stayed with the mom that was less than responsible, but that loved them and they loved her. (Kids generally do love their mom and/or dad.) They were never abused by my sister in law. There were drugs involved and other things. But she never beat them that I know of. Some of them were "adopted" by a single black mom in the foster system who collected foster kids as basically a job that paid her bills. I can't help but think it's not healthy for a kid to be raised by someone who views it as a job that pays the bills.

I also know for a fact that some acquaintences of the family who couldn't have kids wanted to adopt the two youngest children back at that time. They were white. The kids were mixed race. A single black foster mom was given preference over the white couple who wanted to adopt the two youngest. Again....political correctness weighs over healthy traditional loving home. Whatever.

Anyway....the government just needs to keep their nose out of people's business about 90% of the time. Lots of kids have rough childhoods. The government should reserve themselves for saving the ones who are truly in danger instead of spying on millions of homes throughout the country. It's gotten to where kids who are ill get social services knocking on their door. I have a friend who has a child with cleft palate that has been having tons of surgeries...but they had social services at their door making sure they were caring "properly" for the child...and they are responsible, middle to upper class family in a nice home!

Social services gets my ire up. As does this article. They need to sue the government. The government basically killed this child.

There's a family that I know that did very much the same thing except the focused on getting special needs kids because there's more money coming from the state and the feds to deal with them. I know at one point they had 14 special needs kids in the house, some adopted, some foster, but for every single one they got a check. I believe that once the kid would age out of the foster care system, then they'd move to adopt so that they could then claim the kid as a deduction on their taxes.
