I KNOW HELEN AND I KNOW SHE WOULD NEVER ALLOWED THIS TO HAPPEN. SHE IS MY AUNT AND I LOVE AND SUPPORT HER. SHE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THESE ALLIGATIONS SO BACK UP OFF HER. SHE THE SWEETEST PERSON IN THE WORLD AND WAS NOT RAISED TO HURT THE DISABLED. THERE IS STILL A SEAT IN HEAVEN WAITING ON HER......NOT IN HELL. (GET IT RIGHT)

Ppl tend to jump to conclusions in any negative situations. Helen is a church member of mine, being that she didn't report it doesn't send her to he!!. No one really knows what happened but those involved...God bless all involved & touched by this situation. Prayers for Mitchs' physical, mental, spiritual and emotional recovery; prayers for Helen's enduring faith, mental, spititual & emotional strength. Mr. Brown...who am I to judge..prayers for you, too.

Helen is a very kind person and I hope and pray that this is not true! We never know what is going on with others. It has not been a year ago that Mitch hit Helen so badly she was in ICU for days. Though is no reason to cover up abuse it may give some insight in to the situation.
As for the Clarendon County DSN Board it is one to the finest organizations. It's staff care of these consumers as if they are there own family I do hope that this will not over shadow all the good that is being done there.

Who are you to place a bad comment, casting judgement you better worry about getting your life right with God... Sweep around your own front door before you sweep around someone elses because you may be on your way to hell right now!! I mean that from the heart.

This comment goes to 735Stacey and Not Me... Who are you to say what you will or will not do... nobody is trying to cover up no mess and if you don't have nothing nice to say then stay off of here casting judgement on people you do not know those that judge will be judge. You cast stones and then you are the one live in a glass house yourself. You get your life right with God and you won't have time to be on here making comments about this. Sweep around your front door before you sweep around someone elses.

I may be, but at least it won't be for beating a helpless mentally handicapped person or protecting someone who did. Like I sid, Satan has special plans for those people.

This message is to Not Me if you don't have nothing nice to say than stay off of here I am sick of people like you and 735Stacey casting judgement when those that judge will be judge. More than likely you stay in glass house and you have the nerve to throw stones.

Sigh...opinions are just that...opinions. We ALL fall, have fallen and will fall short at some point in our life. We all have loved ones we care about and if and when the table turns, there will still be opinions voiced. Why make this a 'match?' No one knows how this will be handled from authorities point of views or from God. There are many things to consider...Peace to all.

If she knew about it, allowed it to happen, and turned a blind eye to it, then she's just as guilty as an enabler.

My prayers for all. I know it's difficult to handle special need people. It takes a lot of patience, kindness. To the one that did the abuse this special needs person has an excuse what is yours for abusing him? I know they can be loud, nasty and some times violent you just have to know how to handle the situation without going that way too!!

So beating a special needs person is fine. Is that what you are saying. Are you someone who gets a thrill out of doing this same thing. I agree with Stacey, there is a place in HE LL waiting on people like this.
