Sickens me to know there are people like this amoungst us - how in heavens name you can hurt a child - physically - not even to mention the emotional damage these sows have done! I agree with Nostradumaas - spay and neuter!

Chaining kids to their beds, isolating them, and starving them is not a felony?? What did they need to do to get charged with a felony?? The fact that what they did doesn't carry more serious charges almost outrages me more than what they actually did. Nice criminal justice system we're working with. Chain these knucklehead "parents" to some prison beds and never ever ever let them see the light of day again!

I agree 100000 percent - and if you treated your ANIMAL in this fashion you'd be sent up the river in a heartbeat!

And to think she is a nurse, wonder how she treated her patients. Psycos. Hope the kids get the nourishment and love they deserve away from these freaks.

Absolutely sickening. Couldn't feed their children but they could buy enough beer to leave cans all over the house. I pray these children are sent to a decent, loving, humane home and do not get sent to a group home where they will grow up unadopted and are left homeless the day they turn 18.

I wonder how some people can lack common sense and a conscience.

When officers interviewed Charity, she said, "Honestly it was not my idea, it was my husband's idea, and I honestly don't agree with it."

Honestly lady, you're an idiot.......the best part is she's a caregiver....yikes!

This is our fault. We need to make sure these idiots get punished. Punishment doubles for hate crimes so why not for crimes against those that have no way of protecting themselves? Turn people in if you see something suspicious and tell our lawmakers we want stiffer punishment for crimes against children.

I think the parents were being controlled by the electrical charges being released into the air by the thousands of wind towers located nearby. This really needs to be looked into!

But they were just following Biblical rules.
"Spare the rod, spoil the child." If more youngsters were chained up there would be fewer problems. Schools should be able to use methods such as this to discipline unruly students.

I'll bet you money the father is a "birther," a "Christian" and a Tea Party member.

Thank goodness that young boy told someone at school. I'm sure the kids are scarred for life. That is just terrible.

Wow another David Pelzer story! I can't believe parents are still doing this kind of stuff to their own children. Why do some mothers not get that instant LOVE that I felt the minute my children were placed in my arms for the first time. Without my children I would be nothing!!! I will take those boy's home and give them the love and respect they deserve.

I think a better question to ask is why, if they didn't want the kids, didn't they just relinquish parental rights and put them up for adoption? Are they afraid of what the neighbors would say? Well I bet the neighbors are REALLY talking now.

Fat disgusting monsters, they don't look like they missed many meals. Where are the grandparents or any other relatives? Who posted the pigs' bond? Whoever posted it should have let them rot behind bars!

I agree 100%.These pigs make me sick.I would sure like to know more about the details of this disgusting thing that happened to those poor children.Where in Gods name were the family members when this was going on? There has to be more done to punish these kind of pigs.Trial by jury would be good.They would more then likly spend a lot of time behind bars.
