Omaha: DUI, speeding, tequila, beer bottles, cockroaches & NE-HHS = toddler in critical condition

Posted by nebraskaobserver on June 10, 2008

A Hispanic male, Miguel A. Fuegos-Bautista, is behind bars after a Sunday night DUI incident in which his 2 year old son will probably be left a paraplegic. Besides drunk driving, he was cited for felony child neglect.

Nebraska state law requires all children up to age 6 to ride in a federally approved car seat or booster seat that is appropriate for the child’s age, height and weight. Children aged 6 to 18 must be in a seat belt if they are not in a booster seat. Nebraska law prohibits children under age 18 from riding in cargo areas in any vehicle. Drivers and front seat passengers must wear a seat belt or be in a child safety seat.

Nebraska’s seat belt law is a secondary law. Drivers can be cited for this violation only if stopped for a separate violation. Violating Nebraska’s seat belt law carries a fine of only $25.00, for each offense.

Now we all know (well not everybody would agree) that our law enforcement personnel do a great job with the resources they have. However, our state legislators apparently feel that a child’s life and future is only worth $25.00. Instead of spending time giving the taxpayers money to promote North and South Omaha (Little Mexico) as a tourist attraction, their time and our money would be better spent on bills to protect children and the taxpayer.

The Nebraska Observer wants to see some answers to some politically incorrect questions. What is the nationality and citizenship of the parents? Are they here legally or illegally? Do they speak English? Did Miguel A. Fuegos-Bautista have a valid driver’s license? What other, if any, offenses has Miguel A. Fuegos-Bautista committed in this state or any other state? How many other people are currently living at the father and mother’s new address? Since Health & Human Services was still responsible for Selvin’s welfare, how many home inspections were done after they did a walk through on March 14 and what about those family support services, which could include lessons in basic parenting skills they were receiving,? Does the Douglas County Attorney’s office know these answers and willing to tell? Somebody knows.

As far as we are concerned, he can rot in “hell” but he will probably get off because he is just trying to better himself, Hispanics are very family oriented, he didn’t understand the language, he didn’t understand our laws or driving fast and recklessly is a Hispanic male “cultural” thing. Pick one.

85 sentenced in Postville immigration raid
Associated Press – May 20, 2008 10:44 AM ET

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) – Federal prosecutors say 85 people arrested in last week’s immigration raid at a meatpacking plant in Postville have been sentenced on federal charges.

They are part of a group of nearly 400 people arrested at the Agriprocessors plant.

They pleaded guilty yesterday in Waterloo. The U.S. attorney’s office says it’s the largest number of defendants to plead guilty and be sentenced in one day.

Officials say 77 pleaded guilty to using false identification to obtain employment. They admitted using the ID of an actual person and were sentenced to five months in prison and face deportation.

Eight others pleaded guilty to using a false ID to obtain employment, but those documents did not belong to an actual person. They were sentenced to five years probation and ordered out of the country.
