    Horrible (assuming it's true). How can people do things like that to kids?

    People do horrible things like to their own children. I am not sure there is anything that can be done. There will always be gaps.

    Mental illness is everywhere. So is evil.

    Those are just the tip of the iceberg. Substance abuse, apathy, narcissism, dehumanizing people, especially children, polarization, radicalization....the list goes on. One of the most relevant things I have heard was in the coverage for Sandy Hook I think. A trauma psychologist pointed out that it wasn't just that shooters are at fault, but that society feeds their marginalization and mental issues with things like polarizing political rhetoric and you must win at all cost mantras, and the host pretty much kaboshed the whole issue because it didn't serve his own narrative to hype the fear in people of guns.

    Let's not jump to conclusions here. Maybe they were good parents and were just trying the "scared straight" method.

    Nothing like making your kid dig his own grave to keep them in line.

    This is just one more reason supporting the assertion that the state has no place in regulating parents and children. Who is the state to tell this mother she can't abuse her kids as she see fits? This is just an intrusion intro privacy. I mean, we can deny kids healthcare but we can't make them dig their own graves? What's next? We can't bring them into religious cults that place their lives in danger? This is an affront to freedom of parenthood. Endangering my kids is a right damn it.

    This is why Libbos shouod worry less about who gets to own a gun and more about who gets to be a parent.

    So, should permits be required to have children? Including a background check? How about a $5K license fee (goes into the child's education or SS fund)?

    I could almost agree with this in theory, but reality says no. If we were to go that step, giving them up at birth to the State for raising is the next step.

    Who is to judge who is worthy of procreating?
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.
