    This reeks of drugs. The neglect coupled with stealing points to it. Gloucester County is pretty known for its prevalence of drugs too. Hope they throw these two scumbags in prison for a really long time.

    Unlikely unless they can prove premeditation in the death of the one child, which would be hard unless one parent sells out the other in a deal. I knew a couple people from Gloucester--very temperamental and standoffish so it does not surprise me that much where it came from. Virginia has some weird coastal communities. Lord Forbid you ever have to deal with real Watermen from that area.

    It is impossible for me to understand what kind of mental illness must exist in a person's mind to believe such treatment of helpless children is appropriate.

    In one respect, I agree with Hillary Clinton when she was talking about "it takes a village" - people today are too distracted by their own personal issues to see or expose such atrocities going on around them. I'm not a bleeding heart, but this type of thing breaks the heart.
    My Sociology instructor last year is also over our local DFACs office. She said that the kids always go to the grandparents first, because they honestly don't think the grandparents have to be vetted. They started vetting the grandparents in her district after they answered a complaint about a child not attending school, and they found the child dying, handcuffed to the handrail on a staircase. He died not long after they got him to the hospital, and his grandmother had custody of him.

    I wonder how long before someone interjects with the same old refrain "But he wasn't a real Christian!!"

    This **** just wrecks me. Those poor babies. These people are broken, probably beyond repair.

    It amazes me to hear that the grandparents aren't investigated first. Wouldn't you suspect someone damaged enough to do this to their own child had awful experiences of their own? Seems likely enough that it should give them pause.

    You just have to wonder what goes through their heads.

    In a perfect world, it'd be a bullet.

    I think you'll need to provide some sources.

    I'm not a religious person but stories like this make me hope that there is another life and a better place for these innocent children.

    As for thinking grandparents shouldn't be vetted, I think it's been said before that people form their morals and sense of right and wrong from their nuclear family unit. people don't just wake up one day and think that handcuffing a child to a handrail is normal or acceptible - that has to be learned somewhere - probably in the family home - I'd want to vet the parents of abusive parents, definitely.

    They would be really f-----g broken if they were turned over to me for punishment. Incidentally, my father tried to kill me, twice, when I was a tiny tot yet I never harmed a single hair in both my girl's heads. I'm sick to death of the old "he can't help it, he was badly treated as a child" alibi. BTW, Americans would see me as further to the left than Lenin.
