I can't believe they are even being charged!! There is NO reason Bell should have had those children in his home!! I'm glad the family found the children before it was too late. Any of us would have done the same thing to those men if it were our children in their home. They just might have prevented another tragedy like the two little girls that were taken from us by their neighbors not too long ago.

It would be one thing if they went over there and had to fight for their kids possession, but another to take the kids and come back and beat the hell out of those men. That's where it becomes an assault.

From what I understand everyone was searching for the children, the Mother heard the men talking to her children very inappropriately and I'm sure ran over screaming to get her children out of the house, that is when the fight broke out. I feel if "those men" wouldn't have taken the kids and lured them into their house nothing would have happened to them!!

The children are safe and at home. The mans wounds have healed and hopefully won't be taking anymore children without the parent's consent. If they dropped the kidnapping charges then they should drop the assault charges!!!

i am a friend of Mr Bells and proud to say so. From the begining of this whole mess there has been nothing done right. everyone that knows D.J and Dan know that they would NEVER do anything to harm a child. what happened to them was as wrong as it could get. i love them and stand beside them all the way. That said if the prosecutors made a deal with Ricky Peace and they are not standing behind it then a huge injustice just got worse. what is wrong with our system that there word cant be trusted. it hurts me to know that we raise our children to trust our police believe in the truth and justice will be served. what justice is there in a system that cant be trusted?

You are correct, from the beginning nothing was done right. They should have never taken the children into their home. Why isn't that as wrong as it could get? Do you remember Destiny and Hser? What do you think was going through the families mind when they found their children in your friends house? Justice wasn't served if the kidnapping charges were dropped so should the assault charges.

i would never leave small children outside crying alone. as for what went through the mothers mind in this day and age i can onlt dare to think. what i do know is there were 5 people in that house and nothing happened to those kids. also what i know is that the right thing to do if you thought somrthing was wrong was not to take matters into your own hands. it would have been to take your kids and call the police. the family never did call the P.D instead they took the law into there own hands.the children were not harmed yet there family tryed to kill someone. knowing what
happened in this case if those kids were at my front door i would still let them in while i got dressed to take them back home because its the right thing to do. even a 13 year old cousin told the police that the kids walked over there on there own after D.j had went home.
