    Annie –

    “You know, I have a really hard time reading these stories. I have to work up my courage first.”

    Same here. I just made myself read this and my stomach is still swirling with cold butterflies and I feel like I’m going to throw up.

    Pure evil. Burn them at the bloody stake – I’ll light the match.

    aussiegirl: “Burn them at the stake”

    Now *that* would be a sanction – that’s for sure! Which makes me wonder something. Whenever a story like this hits the news the public response is invariably to feel the way you do, the way everyone who’s posted here does. And yet the problem of lack of child protection seems to be so overwhelming in most western ‘democratic’ countries. I’ve read the exact same types of stories from Australia, Canada, the U.S., Britain, Germany, Belgium, etc…

    So why is there such a profound disconnect in those countries between the public’s feelings and the social/protective systems in place? I just don’t get it.

    Dear Annie,

    To answer your question, in my opinion:

    People want someone else, want “them” or “the law” to protect these kids but they don’t want to pay the taxes to accomplish it.

    Well, you can’t have it both ways….the RIGHT to procreate endlessly (look at octo-mom) she had 6 kids, some special needs, that she was sucking off the welfare state, and has 8 MORE that she can’t feed or care for…China on the other end of the scale demands ONE CHILD ONLY to all families….so girl children are given away, aborted, killed even, in hopes of having a male offspring. Wonder who they think all these male offspring are going to MARRY when they reach adulthood?

    Psychopaths tend to have more than average numbers of children, whereas “responsible” people who raise their own kids and work hard at it, generally tend to have a lower birthrate.

    When a subsistence farm required 40% of the labor just to procure FUEL (wood) for heating and cooking, many children were necessary to the health of the family, but today, children COST money to care for, educate, etc. and don’t provide a financial return to the parents at all….except in this case where they were being paid to “care for” these kids.

    The little girl in NC who was disabled whose step mother (and/or father) killed her and dismembered her body, the neighbors SAW her bruises and did not report it. In the Florida case where the 10 year old adopted twins were abused, and the girl killed, and the boy scalded with some kind of chemicals, THEY WERE REPORTED TO CPS multiple times and still NOTHING WAS DONE. Boggles the mind!

    I had so many problems with “ADULT protective services” with elder abuse that I got to the point that I think they would not do anything for the elderly UNLESS THEY SAW THE FAMILY MEMBER ACTUALLY SETTING FIRE TO THE BED THE PERSON WAS CONFINED ON. I was never so frustrated in my life. Makes me want to burn the agency directors at the stake! I had one teenage child who had bitten her mother so badly that I actually had to partly sew the wounds shut (you don’t generally sew up human bites) and the CPS would not take the child in hand and actually threatened to arrest the mother if she “deserted” the child by leaving her alone at night. I had to have the mother sleep outside in winter, locked inside her car, parked in the yard until I could get a judge on the line the next morning to get the child taken into custody. APS wouldn’t do anything either.

    Sometimes I think people who work for these agencies are either retarded, lack common sense, or are so arrogant themselves that they either go overboard by doing too much or not enough. Yea, I know, they aren’t, thank God, all like that. Just the ones we take note of.

    Kids disappeared for 10 years, but the “parents” keep on getting the money for them….no one misses the kids for a decade!? WTF?

    There were a lot of foster kids in my neighborhood growing up. I noticed many of the foster families were really weird. Something was secretive about the home life. Many of these kids were running away. Something was wrong. It seemed to me that over-bearing people were drawn to becoming foster parents. There was this one family that really struck me as odd. Their natural born children were weird and social outcasts, and here this family is fostering kids? This family lined the kids up and were fostering for years.

    One of the kids they fostered was a kid named Christopher. Well, someone taught Christopher how to fight without teaching him the responsibility that goes along with that knowledge. Christopher was beating up everyone! It didn’t matter. He was karote kicking boys in the mouth, or girls! He beat me up all the way home from school. He kept kicking me along.

    Christopher was kicked out of his foster home when he beat up his little sister. His little sister was the daughter of the foster family.

    I remember that little girl. She was pure sunshine. She was the only normal kid in the household. I gotta wonder what she did to piss off Christopher. Did she kill him with kindness?
