MTA Conductor Neglects Autistic Son

When you hear or read certain stories, you can not help but boil over in anger & frustration. This was one of those instances for me after reading how a MTA conductor named Charisma Bellamy was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after her autistic son was wandering around in a subway station alone while she sat at home drunk. Dan Rivoli & Rocco Parascandola of the New York Daily News has more in this exclusive report:

An MTA conductor was home, drunk, while her autistic 9-year-old son was wandering around in a Bronx subway station — the second time a week she neglected him, police sources said Tuesday.

Charisma Bellamy, 37, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child in the latest alleged incident, which happened about 11:25 p.m. Monday inside the 161st St. station on the D line.

That’s where a straphanger saw the boy on the southbound platform, police said.

The good Samaritan took him to the police facility inside the same station, where officers immediately recognized him from the earlier incident, authorities said.

They took him to his home on Anderson Ave., more than a quarter mile away, and were let inside by the boy’s 11-year-old brother.

This woman should lose custody of her child as no excuse in the world can justify sitting home drunk and not knowing your child has wandered off. Forget the bigger danger that he is autistic, any sick pedophile could have snatched him away & you would have not known as being drunk was more important to you versus being a responsible mother.

I am absolutely disgusted at the stance taking by the Transport Workers Union Local 100 in this case in which they feel her privacy should be respected as it is a private manner & has nothing to do with her performance at work. She is clearly showing a lack of an ability to control her actions at home & should not be allowed to potentially showcase the same issues at work.
