Three starving children—including one who was chained to the floor to prevent her from getting food—were found last month in the squalid home of a Northern California couple, authorities said.

All three—two boys and a girl—were taken into protective custody, and one was hospitalized, Monterey County Sheriff Scott Miller said Friday.

Authorities discovered them in the Salinas, Calif., home on March 14 after two of the young people missed appointments, according to several published reports. […]

Eraca Dwan Craig, 31, and Christian Jessica Deana, 44, were both arrested at the scene on suspicion of felony child cruelty, false imprisonment and other charges. …

two of the young people

this wording is peculiar... it is as though the writer looked up the word, "children," and used the definition...

Absolutely disgusting. On so many levels. To think that 1 actually came from this 1 homo scum, the others were allowed to be adopted by disgusting abnormal homos.

Probably getting state money as adoptive “parents” and I use the term loosely ...

These two women can’t even be referred to as animals because animals don’t treat their young this way.

They deserve no mercy and should be locked up for life being they can’t be executed.

I doubt it was this, but I hope they quickly find their way to the seventh level of hell to burn for eternity, oh and if they suffer an extreme amount of physical pain before their earthly demise I'm ok with that too!

Homosexuals are intrinsically disordered. They not only hate God, they hate themselves because of emotional trauma in childhood.. They should never be allowed around children.

All homosexual union/marriage promotions is normalization of child abuse and putting children in artificial, unnatural situations which deprive them of biological parents (Natural Right). It forces them into an abusive situation.

It’s worse than that: It’s called, let’s let incompetent individuals run child custody services and law enforcement. Competent law enforcement and child protection officials wouldn’t care how much PC bull#$%^ gets thrown their way, they would investigate and have a strong determination to evaluate and make sure things were going along properly.

Wasn’t Duke University the place where a professor was pimping his adopted son? I’m not here to boast, because in Delaware, where I most recently lived, we have rampant per capita HIV infections (#1 state in the nation on a per capita basis). It’s not my home anymore, as now I live in Valley Forge, but I have a bad gut feeling something bad will turn up here too, in a matter of time, then there’s Philly...

I think MooseKnuckles was referring more to the culture of the west coast, which has actively promoted and enshrined in law every sort of perversion, well before the rest of the states. They have been the leaders in every 60s-inspiried transgression brought to the courts and rammed down throats of the rest of the nation through subsequent "full faith and credit" decisions.

Fort Worth: She gets life in prison; girlfriend on death row for her role
08:13 PM CDT on Wednesday, September 20, 2006
By DEBRA DENNIS / The Dallas Morning News

FORT WORTH – The mother of a 9-year-old Arlington boy who starved to death has pleaded guilty to capital murder. Marcella Williams, 25, was sentenced Monday to life in prison for the 2004 death of Davontae Williams.

The plea agreement allowed Ms. Williams to avoid a possible death sentence. She will have to serve at least 40 years before becoming eligible for parole. "We think it was the right thing to do," said Mitch Poe, an assistant Tarrant County district attorney.

"Her family had gone to her and said, 'Go ahead and plead guilty. You know you're guilty. You know you did it. Don't put us through another trial.' "

Much of Davontae's short, neglected life was played out in June during the capital murder trial of Lisa Ann Coleman, his mother's girlfriend. Ms. Coleman, 30, is on death row for her role in the boy's death. Davontae's body was found July 26, 2004, at the home he shared with Ms. Williams and Ms. Coleman.

Davontae was malnourished and had more than 250 scars or wounds on his body, officials said. He weighed about 35 pounds – not much more than a toddler, Mr. Poe said.

Child Protective Services conducted several investigations throughout the boy's life. Davontae's history of abuse dates back to a first report to CPS when he was 2 months old. The agency would go on to make five more reports of neglect or physical abuse.

Davontae was removed from his mother's home in October 1999 after a caseworker found him scarred and hungry. The boy was reunited with his family a year later.

In June 2001, there were more reports of neglect, but the family fled before caseworkers could catch up to them.

In a sixth and final report in October 2002, CPS interviewed Davontae at Webb Elementary School, which he attended. The following month, his mother withdrew him from school and told officials she was moving.

Davontae remained hidden from social workers and school officials until paramedics were called to breathe life into his emaciated body.

"It's a very sad ending to a very sad set of events," Mr. Poe said.

That's old school. (/sarc)

"Competence" in child custody services has come to mean "has graduated from a Marxist social work college" and "works actively on behalf of homosexual agenda."

Duke University official offered adopted son for sex

... During an Internet chat, Lombard allegedly offered the child to the person he was chatting with, who was a task force officer from Washington's Metropolitan Police, the FBI said in a statement. The chat was initiated after a confidential source facing child pornography charges told authorities they had witnessed a man, allegedly Lombard, performing sex acts on a child over the Internet. During the chat, according to the complaint filed against Lombard, he told the officer that he had performed multiple sex acts on the boy and that the officer could do the same...

The gay perp and his live-in co-dad were white. The child was black. In another interview, Lombard said he adopted a black child because it would be easier to obtain one. Al Sharpton, of Duke Lacrosse Hoax fame, remained silent on that racist point.

Lombard, whose online name was "pervdad", was a youth leader in his local Episcopal Church, in addition to his paid postion at Duke as associate director of Duke's Center for Health Policy.

Even though he raped his own child, ostensibly perpetrated fraud by promising to be an appropriate adoptive parent, and made child porn videos of his abuse of his adopted son, Lombard was sentenced to a mere 27 years. Considering that the threat of gay sex would have little impact on his life behind bars, he will probably get out for good behavior when the child is approaching college age, assuming a competent family has been found to foster and rehabilitate that gravely injured child.

When this story broke, local media bent over backwards not to disclose the two murderers were lesbians.

They also had female children in the household that they treated well.

These were man hating lesbians that tortured a poor male child to death.

Media did everything in their power to keep it under wraps.

It's a worthy goal, worth working towards in your state legislature. As you may have heard, the gay lobby is doing everything it can to encourage adoption agencies to have some sort of "affirmative action" preference for gay couples over straights, even if the mother is Christian and has a moral objection. The Catholic charities agency in Massachusetts, long one of the most reputable adoption providers nationwide, had to shut down in that state because of its gay marriage legalization.

Christians have been too lazy or too trusting for too long. Our fight to being able to continue to legally uphold our way of life in this Marxist paradise is going to be a long one.
