Harley Davidson of Cartersville WAS going to let Advocates be the beneficiary of their big concert in the fall, but have cancelled that. Kudos to HD Cartersville.

Advocates needs a house cleaning. With the current scandal going on, I wouldn't buy a duck if it were real, cooked, and served on fine china.

I'd definitely agree with house cleaning. From the top.

The people who are doing the most harm to these kids right now are the money hungry, attention seeking parents.

You have the mom and grandmother of the victim posting all over Facebook letting everyone know exactly who they are. Then, you have the parents of the accused (excuse me, the "adoptive parents") sending out self indulgent, cover-their-ass statements via their buddies at WYXC. Come on, anybody with half a brain in their head can figure out who it is. She's been airing their issues with the child on Facebook for years.

These parents have jeopardized their children's anonymity and put them in a humiliating position for years to come.

If they truly had the best interest at heart, they'd be fighting for justice through the legal system instead of talking about justice on a gossip page.

So......you are saying that if your child was involved in this (on either side) you would just sit back and keep quiet???
That says alot about your character!!! Well.....it could say alot about you political gain or salary as well.
and before you say that you would NEVER have your child in a situation like that, please save us the time. We know you must be perfect, sin free, and untouchable!!!

Ok I just have to laugh here. You said the money hungry parents? Really? Did you just say that ? Because the only money hungry thing I've seen going on are the stupid people selling ducks! Every corner, all of their pages , etc. all you see and hear is poor us, but our ducks, our numbers are down, but our ducks! Really??? I'm sorry that is just comical. I haven't seen one thing from any of the families ruined by this asking anyone for any money.

You want to point fingers, then point them at DCFS for placing a child in a place they were told by the parents and multiple professionals was the wrong place. Blame Flowering Branch for turning a blind eye and deaf ear when they were given the same information. Blame the higher ups at FB who withheld the truth from the parents of these children and from the police . Blame the higher ups at FB who, for a month, did not provide the victim with medical care. Blame the woman who told the parents everything was 'just fine' and lied to their faces when they asked how their son was doing. Blame the people at FB who allowed this to happen under their roof, not taking any extra precautions, after they were warned repeatedly. If you want to find someone to blame, perhaps it should even be yourself. For being in denial about this organization, for promoting ducks when all we should be focused on are the families involved in this horrific situation, for somehow thinking you know more than the parents do about their children - I hear there are candidates just like you running for the school board, perhaps you feel comfortable in your glass house, just like they do.

According to the latest newspaper interview with the owner of flowering branch, or whatever she is, she says she wishes she could shout from the roof top her side of the story.

Before you shout from the roof top and give your side of the story, I would like for you to answer two simple questions. Just yes or no answers.

1. Was anyone at flowering branch ever told by anyone that the boy should not be placed in their custody because of his emotional issues?

2. Was the boy in the direct supervision of flowering branch when the alleged incident occurred?

My favorite thing through all of this is that most of the posts and the most liked posts are filled with grammatical and spelling errors. Please do us all a favor, get your GED, proof read, and step out of the meth lab room that most of you are posting from before hitting the submit button. Anyone commenting negatively on this organization is really pathetic and need to get a life. I have read the news stories and you all (especially the parents) should be ashamed of yourself. Everyone now knows what these children look like, their stories, and this will follow all of them, including the victim and the ALLEGED perpetrators for their rest of their lives. These are all children and each post, like, comment, or new page that has been created has damaged them even more than what has happened. The owner or whatever she is said that there's investigations going on. Let it go. The state agencies don't let these thing go unnoticed, unpunished, or without follow-up action. At best, most of you sound like the ignorant town's people with your torches half lit wandering in circles trying to chase down this organization for "justice." In closing, please look up the definition for the word justice in the dictionary. It's been served.

I would say don't bother responding, but I know that most of you can barely read much less can't take directives well, so have at it.

Some people depend on the govt to take care of issues and some people make sure the issue is known. Thank you for your concern! Gotta go! I have a GED to study for!

Speaking of proofreading, grammatical and spelling errors, your use of "town's people" is wrong. The apostrophe indicates possessive. You are an idiot. Shut up.

Finally, someone who is speaking for the educated people of this town and shedding light on the real issues here: ignorance and meth. When is natural selection going to take care of these people? Or will the meth lab explosion?

Seems word around town is that there is no one really there, including the duck pushers. I mean really, you should at least show up for your own fundraiser!

Word around town is wrong. Duck sales are great and there is a large turnout, even in the rain. Today was a great day for the children no matter how much doom and gloom a handful of you are praying for.
