Kwinguquko eyothusayo, uSara Cole, umfazi waseLos Gatos otyholwa ngokulalana ngokungekho mthethweni nomnye wabahlobo abakhulu bonyana wakhe, uxelele ijaji ngoMvulo ukuba yayingumntwana oselula owazama ukumxhaphaza ngokwesondo, ibango angazange alenze emapoliseni kwaye. Ummeli wakhe akazange akhankanywe kwingxelo yakhe yokuvula.



U-Cole uthe umntwana osemtsha wamchukumisa ngokungafanelekanga izihlandlo ezithathu, kubandakanywa nokumcinezela ebhedini kunye nokumbamba de wadanduluka ukuba ayeke-ukwahluke kakhulu kwi-30 ukuya kwi-40 yeemeko zesini esivumelanayo esichazwe kwiveki ephelileyo kubungqina bakhe. U-Cole uthe akazange athethe ezo nkcukacha kudliwano-ndlebe lwakhe lwamapolisa kuba wayezama ukunceda umntwana osemtsha.

Ndiziva ngathi bekufanele ukuba ndibe ngqwabalala, ndibe ngumluleki, ndixele into ayenzileyo, uCole wangqina.





Ubungqina bukaCole beza ngexesha lokuvavanywa kwetyala lakhe kumatyala amathathu olwaphulo-mthetho olungekho mthethweni kunye nomntwana omncinci kunye nesinye isenzo esibi sokuxhatshazwa okanye ukucaphukisa umntwana. Akaliphikanga ityala.

U-Cole wenza izihloko ze-headlines - kwaye wazuza ngokuphuma kwenkxaso yoluntu - emva kokuba umqhubi onxilisayo waphantse wambulala ngo-2007. Kodwa uMgwebi uJerome E. Brock uye wayikhupha loo nto kwityala ngenxa yokuba ayibalulekanga kwaye inokukhupha ngokungafanelekanga uvelwano lwabagwebi.



Icala lomtshutshisi liza kuba lilo, wathi, ngaphandle kwezinto ezimbini - imiyalezo ye-5,413 kunye neefowuni ze-863 ezitshintshisanayo ngexesha leenyanga ezi-6 1/2 kunyaka ophelileyo, apho uCole wayefuna ukuchaza ngoMvulo, ngokunjalo. njengodliwano-ndlebe nabacuphi baseLos Gatos olwathi lwateyithwa kwaye lwadlalelwa ijaji yabasetyhini abasixhenxe kunye namadoda amahlanu. Akukho xesha ngexesha lodliwano-ndlebe apho u-Cole wabonakala othukile okanye ecatshukiswa zizityholo zabacuphi.

Ukhuselo, oluphumle ngoMvulo, luxhomekeke kubungqina bukaCole kunye nokuchasana phakathi kwento ethethwa ngumntwana kwiveki ephelileyo kunye nento awaxelele ngayo amapolisa ehlobo eledlule. Umntwana osemtsha wazama ukujongana naloo nto ngokufaka ubungqina bokuba ukuthetha inyaniso malunga nokunxibelelana nomfazi oneminyaka engama-47 ubudala kuya kundenza ndibonakale ndibi kwaye ndifuna ukumsindisa (uCole). Eli phephandaba alipapashi igama lale nkwenkwe kuba ilixhoba lokuxhatshazwa ngokwesondo.



Iingxoxo zokuvala zimiselwe kusasa ngoLwesibini kwaye iingxoxo zejury kusenokwenzeka ukuba ziqale ekupheleni kosuku.

Ngexesha lobungqina bakhe ngoMvulo, uCole, oneminyaka engama-48, ebesoloko enika iimpendulo ezinde, ezixakayo. Naye wasophula izandla zakhe, wabugquma ubuso bakhe ezandleni zakhe, watswina kwaye wakhala ngoogxa bakhe.



U-Cole uthe ixesha lokugqibela le ntombazana yenza ngokungafanelekanga kunye naye kwenzeka ngoJulayi 2010 xa eyedwa kwindlu yakhe ye-1,300-square-foot-foot naye. Wathi wangena kwigumbi lakhe lokulala waza wathembisa ukumqhekeza, into yena noonyana bakhe ababehlala beyenzela omnye komnye. Ekuqaleni, wala, kodwa ekugqibeleni wamvumela ukuba eze emva kwakhe aze azame.

Uthe xa emxelela ukuba makame, wamjula ebhedini, wamkhwelisa, wanyusa i sundress yakhe wamteketisa, watsho.



Ngexesha elithile ndaqala ukukhwaza - wayezama ukuvala umlomo wam, watsho. Ndandimkhwaza ndisithi, ‘yima, yima, yima, wenza ntoni, suka kum, suka kum.’

Emva kohlaselo lwesondo, ndicinga ukuba woyika ukuba wedwa kunye naye, umtshutshisi uTim Moore wambuza.

Ewe, watsho.

Kodwa wangena naye emotweni - yedwa - kwaye wamqhubela apho wayefuna ukuya khona, wabuza ngokuthandabuza, ebhekisela ngokuhlwa malunga neentsuku ezisibhozo okanye emva koko xa ababini bepake eDaves Avenue Elementary School eLos Gatos.

U-Cole wangqina ukuba wayeqhuba umntwana ekhaya kwaye wayemi kuphela esikolweni ukuba athethe naye malunga neziyobisi kunye nezinye iingxaki ngelixa bephulaphule umculo.

Ngokwahlukileyo, intombazana yangqina ukuba yena noCole babe neentlobano zesini ngobo busuku kwi-SUV yakhe eluhlaza. Kwiveki ephelileyo, wangqina ukuba babelane ngesondo ngamaxesha angama-30 okanye angama-40, ephikisana namaxesha amathathu ukuya kwamane awaxelela amapolisa xa bemtyelele ehlotyeni kwinkampu yasentlango yase-Utah kulutsha oluneengxaki abazali bakhe bamfaka kulo ngenxa yokusebenzisa kwakhe iziyobisi kunye nokuhlwempuzeka. amabanga. Ukwaqale wathi nguye umgqugquzeli, kodwa wangqina ukuba bekunjalo.

UCole uchaze ezinye izehlo ezibini azithi zibandakanya ukuziphatha okungafanelekanga ngokwesondo komntwana okwishumi elivisayo, athe wayithatha njengemizamo ebuthathaka yokuqhula okanye ukwenza umdlalo. Ngo-2009, weza emva kwakhe, wambamba esinqeni waza wacinezela ikroba lakhe ngakuye, phambi komnye woonyana bakhe, watsho. NgoMeyi ka-2010, wagoba echolachola iiDoritos awawisayo, waza watsalela intloko yakhe ngakwikroba lakhe, wangqina. Uye wangqina ukuba uye waphathwa gadalala ngokwasemzimbeni emva kokuba embambile esiba i- kwisipaji sakhe. Wamtyhalela eludongeni, wabetha ngentloko, watsho.

U-Cole uphinde wachaza owona myalezo wesicatshulwa ngokwesondo awuthumele kwintombazana eselula - encoma inxalenye yendalo yakhe - ngokuthi yayiyintlekisa engafanelekanga, embi, engcolileyo ngokuhambelana nomoya wekhaya elinoonyana abane.

Kufana nokuba segumbini lokutshixa ngamanye amaxesha, utshilo. Kuninzi ukuthetha okuqhubekayo, uthelekiso.

Xa uMoore ebuza ethandabuza, Ngaba ukho omnye kubahlobo bonyana wakho othumela umyalezo ofuna ukuchitha ixesha nawe wedwa? U-Cole wachaza i-frequency and nature of texting ngokuthi umntwana ufana nomnye wentsapho.

UCole wayevumile kudliwano-ndlebe lwamapolisa ukuba yena kunye nentombazana babenobudlelwane bomzimba. Kodwa uye wangqina ngoMvulo ukuba wayebhekisa kukuziphatha kwakhe ndlongondlongo kunye nokuziphatha okungafanelekanga ngokwesondo kuye, hayi ngesondo.

Kwakhona ngexesha lodliwano-ndlebe, uCole wabuza ukuba uya kubanjwa kwaye wabonisa ukwesaba ukuba akayi kudlula. Ucacisile, phantsi kwemibuzo ethambileyo ngoMvulo ngu-Armstrong, ukuba ubuze kuphela kuba wayebhidekile kwaye ebhidekile yinto eyenziwa ngabacuphi endlwini yakhe.

Kodwa xa wayebuzwa imibuzo, uMoore wavakalisa ukuthandabuza.

Ubucinga ukuba usengxakini ngenxa yokuba uxhatshazwe ngokwesondo? wabuza.
