I would jsut like to thank the person who did thiere civic duty and reported this illegal facility. Children could have die in 15 min in that heat. Let's be thankful the person who called cared about your communities most preicous citizens and had the courage not to turn a deaf ear.

I think everyone is just blowing this thing all out of proportion! It's nothing like the news is letting on like it is. I'm a good friend to the Family who owned the Daycare and I know the whole entire story! Everyone just needs to let this die down and let things go. Whatever happens, happens.

I think the public could care less about what you are to the Family!! They dont arrest someone for nothing. No matter what the story may be SOMEONE put those Children in the attic. Whomever that SOMEONE was just happened to be who she left in charge, from what is being told it was her own teenage daughter. YOU dont leave 5 Children under the age of 8 with a 15 year old that you took responsibility for, not to mention a parents money who put their faith in YOU to take care of their Children. How would you like it if your child was locked in an attic even for a minute with raw electrical wires, dead rodents, broken glass and several more things that were fatal to anyone at any age? Quit defending a criminal when it comes to innocent helpless Children.

Consider this....
I'm wondering if the kids were actually being properly taken care of but then were stuck up in the attic when the inspector arrived to make it look like they didn't have any kids on premises.

Don't worry, I'm not takin up for them - I'm not friends or family of the owners.

Just a thought that crossed my mind. We need to look at all sides of this. Don't get me wrong, getting scared and sticking the kids in the attic to avoid getting in trouble is a very bad choice. I have three kids and I wouldn't want any of them placed in an attic no matter how short of time it was. If they had the proper license then they wouldn't have had to do this to the kids.

If the kids really were put in the attic because they didn't want to take care of them....well, that's a whole different story and it makes those people monsters.

Again, either way, the kids should not have been in the attic - I'm just wondering what the real facts are.

On the Daycare sign it says Featuring Kids Camp for 10 bucks. Wonder what that is? Could it be camp out in the attic for a day? Sheeesh what a bunch of retards!!! I hope everyone of those parents sue the crap out of her!! surely they can go a step above and beyond right. The news stated that the young girl in charge wouldnt open the door for 20 to 30 mins. you gotta wonder if those children could have been up there that long. God was watching over them for sure.Thank you God!!!

See it for yourself!! Det OWENS stated a period of 15 to 30 mins went by , makes you wonder just how long those poor children were up there. I heard their ages ranged from 2 to 8 yrs old. Can you imagine the danger they were in.
