Lo, the poor immigrant...

Welcome to Insanities readers!

From the News Journal, a sad case:

During her two-and-a-half days in police custody, all Maria Navarro-Luna could think about was her injured 7-year-old daughter....

Those who know Navarro-Luna say she is a wonderful mother, always preoccupied with providing the best for her children.

The mystery gets deeper:

They can't understand why Navarro-Luna, 31, was arrested earlier this week on two counts of endangering the welfare of a child after a June accident in which she and two of her children were struck by a truck while jaywalking across busy U.S. 40. Seven-year-old Dulce Maria -- "Sweet Maria" in Spanish -- was taken to Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, comatose. Her 16-month-old sister, Lucero Maria, whom Navarro-Luna had been pushing in a stroller, died.

Well, I've put my gigantic brain to the task, and I think I have the motive for the government's malign treatment of this magical mom: she was jaywalking across a busy highway with two children in tow!

Is that dumb or what? Does it perhaps display poor judgment?

If she were our own native-born admitted doofus, Britney Spears, it would be the work of a moment to revoke custody. In fact, Britney lost custody of her children, despite her money and fame.

Maria Navarro-Luna is a piss-poor mother who already caused the death of one of her children. What in the world would she do with custody of the other one--run across I-95 with her?

Evolution at work, obviously.

And I'm sure she's paying the medical bills with her own insurance.
