What About the Children?

This story literally made me cry. Seven-year-old Nixzmary Brown was beaten to death by her stepfather while her mother sat in the next room feeding another baby.

Apparently Nixzmary had been the subject of physical and sexual abuse, as well as neglect, for a long time. Her school alerted child welfare authorities in New York City when they suspected abuse, but bureaucracy and incompetence worked against Nixzmary. The reason for her stepfather's final outrage? She had taken a yogurt without permission, after all the other children had gotten some (but she had been denied). Nixzmary was seven, but she only weighed 35 pounds.

If you are especially sensitive, don't read the article. However, if you are at all concerned with child advocacy, you should.

Normally, I am against government meddling in private lives. However, when the health and well-being -- the actual lives -- of innocent children are at stake, all bets are off.

Will SOMEONE have the courage to say what needs to be said about the Nixzmary Browns of the world? The responsibility for Nixzmary's death lies mostly with Nixzmary's mother and biological father. Where was he all this time? There are so many stupid women like Nixzmary's mother who are more concerned about keeping a worthless man around than taking their parenting responsibilities seriously. She had 6 kids! WHo and where were all their fathers?? Why is society expected to shoulder the burden for the so-called "reproductive rights" of irresponsible people. If cruel, idiots like these are reproducing rapidly, our future is in danger. The answer needs to begin with restricting reproductive rights for unsuitable people like these. Reproductive "rights" don't always have to be exercised, you know.

I hate to say this but that is not entirely true. Yes the mother and stepfather are mostly to blame. However, I am angry and i do mean angry at the Child welfare departments all around the U.S. Remember susan smith and that lady in texas who drowned her 5 kids and didn't get what they deserved? I am upset that this happens every day and nobody has the balls to stand up and say "hey asshole stop hitting your kids" My ideas to reform this terrible situation would be to make, and yes i do think we should make these mothers who are out on welfare and having 5 kids or hell, even 1 kid and are not being held responsible for the day to day care of these children. I think that they should be forced to get sterilized after the 3rd kid. Why so harsh? well let me put it to you like this! These things don't happen unless the person doing this makes it! If they're given the opportunity to have more children they will abuse more!

I am outraged that nobody heard the cries of little children cooped up in an apartment building. There is no reason to lock or tie your children up! I am saddened but I am so angry that the child welfare office has this many cases but not enough social workers to act. Now, I am not trying to be nazi about it. Really, my intentions are for the safety of our single most precious resources...Our babies. As women, we should know how precious and beautiful our children are. Apparently, Nixmary's mother didn't and possibly the extended family. My daughter is 6 and weighs 42 lbs. This little girl only weighed 35 lbs. May the step-father burn in hell for being such a sick bastard. I am sorry for my swearing but it just angers me that these pedophiles are so vicious. I say you touch a child I cut off your hand! bet you wont do that again!

I say shoot the bastard between the eyes. As for the mother, she was no mother cause a real mother wouldn't let any and I mean ANY man beat on her child if she loved them.
What a sick bunch of people they are.
As for CPS, well why doesn't it surprise me that they did nothing. Let me tell you why.
They did nothing when I called them here in Ohio about a stepfather having his 2 year old step daughter saying that her private part was a vagina and nothing else. 2 years old and they said that wasn't enough to investigate. I called the 2nd time to report that he was mentally abusing her low and behold nothing was done.
Her mother tried committing suicide and guess what? The kids got taken away and put in my home. Yes I am talking about my grandchildren. I now have custody of my 3 year old grandaughter and the other 2 are back with their mother, the stepfather is out of the picture now that I have custody and he has no one to take his anger out on anymore. CPS is nothing but a joke anymore.

iam disgusted to know this whoman sat around and allow a man to beat her daughter to death.does she need a man so bad , why didnt she took her kids and ran to the police or a shelter. and the so call family where were all the cousins grandmother and uncle.what kind of family is this were they living in another state that they didnot keep intouch.we can blame the system for everything but come on what are family for. i do hope someone kill them both in prison. i for one hope that do happen.somefolks in the community claim they say her with a black eye and walking like she was been sexualy molested.did anyone call acs.or the police no so what with the flowers and candles .its too late ,stop with the i am minding my business kids are dying.remember hedda nausbaum and joel steinberg.they are both out and walking around.i hope these two creeps never see the light again.and someone on rikers please kill both of them and save the state some money.good riddance

Have you considered all the variables here? Don't judge someone until you have walked in their shoes. You are the most judgemental and self righteous people I have ever heard mutter such excruciating menutia.

Posted by: anonymous at January 19, 2006 12:11 PM

You know, you're right! We shouldn't judge anyone when a 7-year old child is dead...not by accident or illness, but by a brutal beating. How inconsiderate of us!

Thanks for stopping by!

I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT NOT ONLY NIXMARY FAMILY HAS FAILED BUT ALSO OUR CITY HAS FAILED. I HAPPEN TO BE A MOTHER OF A 7 YEAR OLD GIRL AND MARRIED TO A MEXICAN MAN, AND I'M SORRY BUT THE WAY THE STEPFATHER'S BROTHER SAID THAT THEY USE COLD WATER AS A FORM OF DISAPLINE IS A LIE... AS FOR THE PARENTS... I WISH THEM ONLY HELL.... OKAY I HAVE NO SYMPOTHY FOR THEM AT ALL. THEY SHOULD TOURMENT THEM FOR THE REST OF THE'RE SORRY ASS' LIVES. I WOULD TAKE THE PICTURE OF NIXMARY'S WAKE AND PLACE IT ALL OVER THE CELL WALL SO THAT HER MOTHER COULD BE CONSINTLY REMINDED OF HER CRIES FOR HELP.TO ME THE MOTHER IS NOT A VICTIM KONLY HER CHILDREN ARE... AS FOR THAT DISGUSTING MAN THAT CALLED HIMSELF THE FATHER... GIVE HIM 15 MINUTES OF FAME.. LET THOSE PRISIONERS DO TO HIM WHAT HE DID TO NIXMARY.. ON A DAILY BASIS. BUT THE KEY WILL BE NOT TO KILL HIM BUT TO TOURMENT HIM FOR THE REST OF HIS SORRY ASS LIFE... I WISH I WOULD WORK AT RIKERS ISLAND SO THAT I COULD MAKE THEIR LIVES A LIVING HELL... HOW DARE THEY DO THAT?! AND HOW DARE PEOPLE SAY "THE MOTHER IS ONLY ONE OF HIS VICTIMS" IF SHE REALLY LOVED AND CARED FOR FOR HER CHILDREN SHE WOULD OF PROTECTED THEM WITH "NAILS AND TEETH" BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT A REAL MOTHER DOES FOR HER CHILDREN.... I HOPE THAT THE JURY WILL GIVE THEM LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE... AND NOT THE DEATH PENALTY UNLESS IT ONE THAT THEY WILL FEEL ALOT.... OF PAIN & FEAR... IF THEY EVER READ THIS NOTE THIS MESSAGE IS FOR THEM... "I HOPE YOU BURN IN HELL WITHOUT MERCY AND I HOPE THAT EACHTIME YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES YOYU WILL SEE NIXMARY'S LIFELESS BODY STARING AT YOU BOTH. AS FOR YOU YOU NASTY ASS WHORE, WHAT YOU CLAIMED YOURSELF AS A MOTHER I HOPE YOU WILL ONLY HEAR NIXMARY'S VOICE AND CRIES FOR HELP TO YOU YOU DUMB B-TCH! AS FOR THE STEPFATHER... I HOPE YOU GET TIED UP, RAPED ON A DAILY BASIS, STARVED, DUNKED IN COLD- ASS WATER (SEWER WATER) BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT EVEN WORTH THE TAP WATER WASTE.. AND WHAT EVER THAT IS PAINFULL YOU WILL FEEL, YOU NASTY SON OF A BI-CH!!!!!

What needs to be done? Children need to be afforded the same protection against physical assault that our adult counterparts are. We are not allowed, under the law, to "spank" our next door neighbor if he pisses us off. I cannot hit my elderly mother, even though she inflicted plenty of physical abuse on me as a child.

We NEED legislation that will make corporal punishment a crime. Parents cannot be left to make their own judgments about where discipline ends and abuse begins. Nixmary's uncle said that her stepfather "Did what any normal parent would do... he took a belt to her." I wonder if anyone is checking out HIS kids?? The whole thing makes me sick.

Parenting without hitting is HARD. But it can be done, and done well. It's unfathomable to me that we teach our kids to "use your words", because we know that they cannot grow up to solve their problems with others using physical violence, yet we as a society continue to physically discipline them. It makes no sense.

To the one who wrote, "Don't judge someone until you have walked in their shoes", you must either be a blood relative of Cesar Rodriquez or a sick person yourself. There was no excuse for the terrible things he did to Nixmary and he should be tortured just like she was in her 7 years of life. She suffered and it was people like you who chose to look the other way believing that it was nothing. Before you can defend the quilty with such conviction why don't you try walking in her shoe's. Imagine someone beating you regularly, raping you, starving you and finally taking your life from you by viciously attacking you. When you think about it now I'm sure it would be your worst nightmare.
