Okay, so most of you read the story about the two little girls from Brooklyn who were left in the city's streets on Sunday with just a handful of diapers with no place to go, right? When I told you about the story yesterday, the whereabouts of the mother was still unknown. Well, thank you, once again, to Facebook for solving another mystery! I mean, seriously, as if leaving your kids with just some diapers on a city street wasn't dumb enough, you had to further your dumbness and celebrate what had done on Facebook? Wow! The stupidity of people still shocks me!
Apparently, Dalisha Adams, mother of abandoned little Dominae and Diani, updated her Facebook page with a photograph of someone hoisting a bottle of champagne just just hours after her toddlers were dumped on a street corner. NYPD were all over Canarsie looking for the mom at about 6:15 pm on Sunday when the photo of the pink bubbly popped up on Facebook. What an odd time to celebrate, huh?
Dalisha Adams was busted around 11 pm on Sunday, more than four fours after the head-scratching Facebook post. Miss Adams was awaiting arraignment late Monday on two counts of child endangerment. There were no signs of abuse on the two little girls, but neighbors did say that Adams often cursed at the two kids and gave them a tongue-lashing hours before she ditched them. The girls were found bundled in coats wearing UGG boots and clutching diapers down the street from where their grandmother lives.
The grandmother, Bertha Davia, said that she had no idea that the girls were there until she read about it on the front page of the paper. The grandma also said that she would have taken the girls in. All Adams had to do was call. Davia's son, Shawn Cobbs, is the girls' father, and has been accused by Adams of domestic violence several times. On Sunday, Cobbs and Adams got into another argument over the two little girls. Adams wanting Cobbs to take the kids, and Cobbs responding with the fact that he had no stable place to take them, so Davia claims that Adams in fit of rage must of dressed the girls up and brought them to her house.
The Administration for Child Services, which may have known about the family because of the domestic violence case, helped police identify the two girls. At around 10:10 pm, police used a crowbar to open the door of the Breukelen Houses apartment where Adams lives with the two little girls. Adams, who works as a security guard (go figure!), heard that cops were looking for her and walked into the 69th Precinct station house sometime after 11 pm.
A close friend of Adams said on Monday that she didn't believe her friend would leave the girls on the side of the road because she really loved them, but a Breukelen Houses neighbor said that Adams seemed to be at her wits end. She said that she always heard Adams yelling at the little girls, "Shut the f**k up!" or "I'll punch you in the f**king face!" or "Stop crying. Shut the f**k up. I'm gonna get you out of here!" It's just unbelievable!
After two days of following this story, I've come to the conclusion that Miss Adams wanted to get caught! Why commit a crime, post it on Facbeook, and then walk into the station house to turn yourself in, if you didn't want to go to jail? Then again, maybe she did want to just drop the little girls off at their grandmothers, but she didn't want to see the baby daddy's family? Maybe, the two little girls didn't understand the instructions of walk to grandma's house, so they wandered all around Brooklyn? Either way, this whole thing is f**ked up! Sorry that I wasted two blogging days on this, but the fact that she celebrated on Facebook after abandoning her girls and then getting caught because of it seemed a little funny to me!
