    GA - Young, obese girls taken from filthy, bug-ridden home

    Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) -- When police walked into the home, they found a 5-year-old girl weighing nearly 160 pounds, her teeth rotting, her skin covered in spider bites. Her 4-year-old sister was lying on a filthy mattress, wearing only a urine-soaked diaper.

    If I wasn't so against big brother, stories like this one would make me insist we need licensing for parents.

    Sheesh, those poor little girls. OMG. People are just competely messed up. This world is just completely messed up.

    Neither girl is enrolled in school. Both are severely obese. The older daughter, who weighs 158 pounds, could not walk 10 feet without "becoming out of breath and wheezing," officers said. The younger child weighs 89 pounds and still drinks from a baby bottle. Her feet were blackened with dirt, her skin also covered in insect bites.
