    The only "positive" outcome will be the child being sent to a foster home where he'll be abused and neglected again.

    That's a very poor generalization.

    I've known many foster families, including my parents who started when I left for college. The children well all well-cared for, in positive environments. And much better off than in their bio-homes.

    so, your solution is to quit providing government assistance
    then what happens to the kids unfortunate to have been born into irresponsible families

    Now all you're seeing now on video is the product of your unconditional "tolerance."

    The video is disgusting. I have no problem with the police in reposting the video. It is meant to show people the continueing cycle of violence that is going on and to get it talked about so that hopefully good solutions will be suggested to fix the problem. I support the police in this policy and hope they post more such videos. Sticking out heads in the sand isn't going to get the problem fixed. Besides what is going on in the video and what it shows I am also equally disguested that people have made this a racial issue. Behaviour which promotes and leads to violence has NOTHING to do with race.

    Im skeptical that people are going to get into any sort of meaningful discussion about this.

    The race card isn't far off, and when it gets uncomfortable that card is coming out.

    Its about incentives-when you subsidize irresponsible behavior (or anything else) you get more of it.
    We have created incentives for people do behave like this. Fundamental institutions like family are destroyed.

    This has NOTHING to do with race-or even poverty. This is a different issue, but I dont expect the left to distinguish.

    Its interesting that the poor are MORE likely to believe there are people gaming the system. Its middle class liberals that allow reality to escape them.

    Sounds like recipe for success. Gramma is probably 32, and great gramma is 46.

    Perhaps her husband can step in to help-she's married right? ;/

    The race card was already played in the video in the OP.
