"It sounds too sick to be true, but police in Ohio have recovered 11 disabled children who were forced to sleep in cages.

The adoptive parents of the children are denying any neglect and tell police they thought it was okay to place the children in 40-inch-high cages.

The ages of the children range from one to 14 and suffer from conditions of autism and fetal alcohol syndrome. The children were found by a children's service investigator.

So far, no charges have been filed. "

Or the assholes, I say we should have legislation-enforced castration of assholes, to both eliminate them from the gene pool, and to help reduce global overpopulation.

November of '82 gave birth to a new hope for civilization. It was realized in the following year, that that hope was completely unfounded, and better put into something worth it, like a new way to artificalize Velveeta.

The idea that these people are trying to deny there is a problem with this is astounding. You should have to have a license to breed.

Sorry I'm tired, and I missed that by a mile. I re-read it.

Why does that just make it worse? I mean if they gave birth to these kids and abused them, that's horrible. They adopted them and then abused them? It just seems even worse. Wow.
 

YUCK FOU!!!

That even made me angry, and I hate kids. I don't like them yelling and all that stuff little kids do but I'd never put my own kids into a cage.

Some people shouldn't be allowed to adopt, they're not some thing you keep in cages, they're people.

You have to wonder, firstly, how 11 children were placed with these "adoptive parents" and no one at any point in the vetting process thought there might be something amiss.

Secondly, how someone in there right mind thought it would be okay to cage a child begs the question as to whether these people were mentally competent to deal with children in the first place!:(
