It is a slow day in the East Texas town of Madisonville . It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt and everybody lives on credit.
On this particular day a rich tourist from the East is driving through town. He enters the only hotel in the sleepy town and lays a hundred dollar bill on the desk stating he wants to inspect the rooms upstairs in order to pick one to spend the night.
As soon as the man walks up the stairs, the hotel proprietor takes the hundred dollar bill and runs next door to pay his debt to the butcher.
The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to pay his debt to the pig farmer.
The pig farmer then takes the $100 and heads off to pay his debt to the supplier of feed and fuel.
The guy at the Farmer’s Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the local prostitute who has also been facing hard times and has lately had to offer her "services" on credit.
The hooker runs to the hotel and pays off her debt with the $100 to the hotel proprietor paying for the rooms that she had rented when she brought clients to that establishment.
The hotel proprietor then lays the $100 bill back on the counter so the rich traveler will not suspect anything.
At that moment the traveler from the East walks back down the stairs after inspecting the rooms. He picks up the $100 bill and states that the rooms are not satisfactory. Pockets the money and walks out the door and leaves town.
No one earned anything.
However the whole town is now out of debt, and looks to the future with a lot of optimism.
That ladies and gentlemen is how the United States Government is conducting business today.

Misty Croslin has no conception YET as to the magnitude of trouble that she is already in - nor do her parents - obviously, as in her mind it would take just $10,000 to get out of jail (10% of $50,000! - these people are beyond stupid).
She could not appreciate or conceive that based on her bond of $1,350,000 it would cost at minimum $135,000 (plus collateral) for her release, and she would have to come up with either a dead or an alive Haleigh or be put right back in jail. The benefit goes to Padilla - more free publicity for signing his name guaranteeing payment should Misty flee (highly unlikely).
So let's avoid this circus - and let Misty and Co. sit just where they are - and whenever the lightbulb in her little brain comes on - and she goes OMG!, I have nothing to lose by telling everything I know, only then will justice for Haleigh triumph all the self serving profiteers who want to make names for themselves off the back of this innocent little child.
In my opinion, there is no benefit in the quest for justice - to bail out Misty Croslin. She has admitted to her father in the recently released jailhouse video of their visit that she sold prescription drugs eight or nine times to the undercover Putnam County cop, thereby sealing her fate - which leads her directly to prison. If she is fortunate to qualify under the Youthful Offender Act, she can expect up to 6 years. If she doesn't, she can expect to spend a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years for each of the 8 counts - potentially up to a life sentence.
If the State Attorneys Office in Putnam County wants to play Major League hardball with her, and if Misty does have knowledge as to what really happened to Haleigh, she would have absolutely nothing to lose by talking.

And just by chance that Misty get’s her bond lowered to say, $50k, will the idiot who would put up the $5,000 to bail her out come up to the front of the room and get fitted - we got a straightjacket for you too, after your spanking.
P.S. Same goes for Ronald, Tommy, Hope and Donna Brock (who BTW deserves a spanking regardless - I doubt she’ll be refilling prescriptions any time soon for resale or otherwise)
Some thoughts that come to mind when I think about Haleigh Cummings and Caylee Anthony and other children that have gone missing - and robbed of life;
THE WORLD THAT HALEIGH CUMMINGS WAS BORN INTO
The convolution to sort through over a simple single event of a child gone missing – is mind boggling, when it would only take one person to just come forward with the truth.
The lengths that people connected to this case have gone to obscure and cloud the discovery of Haleigh is a shining example of just how damaging drug abuse is to an innocent child born in its’ midst.
It is the core cause of this case from the beginning and I firmly believe that society as a whole has a social responsibility to these innocent children, not only to report drug addicted parents to the authorities, but a greater responsibility for the judges who oversee and administer the law to ensure that these unfit drug addicts “parents” lose their right to “raise” and “influence” their offspring and are additionally prevented from bringing any more children into the world and continuing this cycle of abuse.
Only by cutting off the poison tree branch from the trunk can society hope to foresee a future of health and optimistic possibilities – a scenario which has been in decay and decline for way too long. I believe in second chances, but there comes a time when enough is simply enough – and in this case. enough was enough a long time ago.
Let’s keep up the good fight, society. A socially responsible person’s concern is about bettering the environment they live in, no matter what it takes in spite of what the irresponsible says, thinks or feels. Just because they live in fear of being found out doesn’t mean that they should enable us to fear them, either by retaliation – or by any other means.
It’s time courage takes the lead – and “right” outweighs “might”.
And hopefully, there will be less Haleigh’s and Caylee’s in the world to worry about – and the norm of having a child a day gone missing will be a thing of the past. All it takes to care for a child that you may think is in harms way – is to make a simple phone call. A proactive stance – before the damage is done is the only way to protect and insure our most valuable investment in societies future.
