Neither Brogden or Brothers appear to have the brains to open a box of Cracker Jacks. I hope because of theiractions they both spend a long time behind bars. I pray for the children and hope thatthey find much happier homes.

I,m not protecting drug dealers but most of these people have severe addictions ( alot of them thank you to their medical care providers ) and they will throw them in jail for punishment for having this disease for years. Grant you many are in it for the money, but there are the ones with a disease called " addiction " and they need help not punishment. Cigarettes and alcohol are the no. 1 leading drugs that kill. They ARE LEGAL....WHY ? But molest an innocent child and they get a slap on the hand. There is NOTHING more disgusting to me than to hurt an innocent child " THEY ARE gods angels "whether its physical, sexual, or mental. These people need life + 1 day in prison. They have no right being out in society for their is NO cure for a pedophile. They will strike again and again children may as well been killed by them for most will end up a walking, talking mental case. So come on lets protect these children from harms way. Throw the key away on these people beating , starving and molesting these little people !!!!
