ACLU-loving types already up in arms

To view a link to my appearance on Fox News Live talking about my proposal (as outlined in my column in the Tampa Tribune) to reduce violent crimes against children

Protecting perceived “rights” of dirtbags more important than protecting kids from violence in the home

By Chris Ingram

Earlier this week I wrote about the murder of a nine-year-old little girl whose murder was allegedly at the hands of her mother’s boyfriend. Today I went on Fox News Live to talk about a solution to this problem that I proposed in my column (see link to video below).

Liberal do-gooders and ACLU-loving types (inlcluding Tampa’s La Gaceta newspaper) are already up in arms — preferring to protect the liberties of evil-doers over the rights of innocent children from being the victims of preventable crimes caused by people who live in their homes.

Of course the thing these liberals fail to acknowledge is that nothing in my proposal is mandatory.

No one absolutely has to submit to a background check.

No one will be forced to take a parenting and an anger management class.

No one is going to stomp on anyone’s rights.

No, all this legislation would do is require you to do those things if you want to accept public assistance (aka: welfare). If you don’t want to submit to the checks, or if necessary, take the courses, fine. Dirtbags in the home it is. But you won’t get a dime of public money unless you take those very reasonable steps to protect kids.

Liberals be damned. Let’s start protecting our kids.

  1. This hits very close to home… my nephew Gage, was beaten to death when he was just a few weeks old, by my sister’s boyfriend in Jacksonville Florida. His killer went to jail for only a couple of years and now lives in works in the state of Florida. Nothing stops him from living with another woman and her children and she would be completely unaware of his past. Children should be protected at all costs from people like Gage’s killer and I applaud you for taking proactive steps to do that.


  2. I see the controversy, but agree that nobody has to take the welfare money if they don’t like the rules society says welfare recipients must live by.


  3. I’m 100% with you, and in fact would expand the list of “transfer payments” that would trigger the required checks. Question: suppose Mom draws welfare and is subject to check, but Boyfriend has a job. Can we check Boyfriend if he dwells with Mom, thus receiving “transfer payments” indirectly? How do we prove where Boyfriend dwells? Don’t take this as derogatory. I’m for protecting the kids.
