I( suppose I should not even use the word 'parenting' because that was not present in the arrest of these two adults.

East Lansing Police made the arrest after making a traffic stop for erratic driving.  This was around 1:40 am, yes A.M.   The driver of the car, Cedric Jackson of Lansing, was operating  his vehicle while intoxicated, that right there is bad enough however officers discovered in the car an 8 year old, a 4 year old and two two year olds,  and 2  of the children were not properly restrained in the vehicle at the time of the stop.  The Mother of 3 of the 4 children was also in the car.

Jackson was arraigned yesterday on four counts of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, with an occupant less than 16 and faces one count of driving on a suspended license, revoked, denied.     ELPD is also seeking charges of fourth degree child abuse against the Mother of three of the kids.

Again, this all took place just before two in the morning, kids in the car, not restrained, and a drunk driver behind the wheel.

You have to jump through more hoops to get a cat or dog....license included, but anybody can have kids, 

this is an example of NOT BEING A PARENT.
