Adults Lock Toddlers in Cold Shed and Party
Yahoo News ^ | Jan. 7th, 2012 | Sherry Tomfeld

FOX2NOW had a disturbing story of child neglect/abuse in Crawford County, Mo. Instead of getting a baby-sitter to watch 1- 2- and 4-year-old toddlers, adults opted to lock the children in a cold shed in the back yard. The six adults present at the scene were having a party at the time.

Is anyone else concerned about the stupidity and complete lack of morals in such a large segment of our population? If adult aren't killing their families off, they are pulling dumb, heartless stuff like this.

Good grief. Stuff like this brings out an anger/disgust in me that I didn't know I had.

Even if it was a “warm shed” it would have been negligent and stupid. Probably would have treated their pet dogs or cats better than that.

Why not simply put the kids to bed in their room?

As awful as it is to say, those poor innocent kids are better off in state custody than in that mess of a household.

"Why not simply put the kids to bed in their room?"

Clearly, the kids wouldn't be able to sleep with a noisy party going on; so it was a kind of compassionate stupidity.

They place the children with other family “not involved with the party” whatever that means.

It is by no means clear that the kids are better off or in state custody. Most states make family reunification their primary focus so its highly likely these poor kids will suffer through multiple foster placements while their parents do a bit of jail and then treatment, counseling and parenting classes to get their kids (and welfare) back.

These kids will probably never get a fair shake at a functional family. I’ve thought for years that kids with druggie parents should just be immediately put up for adoption and given a real chance for a normal home life.

I agree completely, for serious druggies like these at least. I've seen kids from such households. They are ruined before they hit their teens, and never seem to escape their early conditioning.

I withdraw my mistaken comment about state custody. I misread or missed the statement about them being placed with other family. Time to pack it in and go to sleep, I guess. Thanks for the correction.

Now now, don’t you go saying that drug use causes problems that affect other people and can even prove fatal.

You’ll have the thread full of slobbering Paultards screaming that laws against drugs cause everything from Mooshelle’s fat butt to dropped cell phone calls.

I’m perfectly happy making drugs legal while elevating the rights of children to functional parents over the rights of parents to be addicts AND raise children.

This is disgusting. These people should be punished but I must confess when raising young children, I did think on passing “lock them in a closet I’ll lay down in front of the door and take a nap”, only thought it NEVER acted on it.

Get some help with your Tourette’s disease! You’re so obsessed w/ RP that you had to hi-jack this thread. Yet the flailing and corrupt GOP/DNC is given a free ride to continue the destruction of the USA.

There is no such thing as raising kids anymore. No such thing as ‘sacrifice’ for your children. No more dedication to family, as extreme feminism as inspired females to relegate ‘mothering’ to the bottom of the list of ‘duties’ while the mother seeks her personal fulfillment and self gratification....what ever floats her boat.

Sure looked like MrEdd was pointing out the absurdity associated with ronpaul and his loonie-bin supporters and the thread was secondarily about druggies. Didn’t seem to take long to bait a paulnut.

Seein a bit of pot calling kettel black?

I personally know two people who were taken from their homes by child protective services, and were sexually abused while in "state custody."

While I think that the Libertarians over-emphasize the drug war, they do have a point about the effects of the drug war on the civil liberties of the rest of us.

It's welfare that allows drug dependency to be viable. Eliminate welfare, and druggie parents unable to hold a job would have no choice but to give up any kids for foster care or adoption. More likely they would volunteer for sterilization to escape the hassle if kids were not an asset for securing government benefits.

“There is no such thing as raising kids anymore”

You are absolutely right and the reason for this is because kids are considered blobs of cells-—no different than those who are deemed worthy to be aborted by our courts. There is no respect for human life at any stage.

Hi, Lady Lucky. I withdrew my comment about "state custody" above, in comment #9, as it was in error.

I was making an exaggerated statement, sort of like "they'd be better off dead", but on reflection that was ill-advised as well.
