    FL - child forced to kneel for 10 days

    http://www.clickorlando.com/news/Cop...tml?hpt=ju_bn4

    Albert and Nancy Cusson

    the Cussons made the boy kneel with his hands behind his back from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. for 10 days straight, ending Saturday. He wasn't allowed to stretch, take breaks, eat or use the bathroom in those nine hours, according to the report.


    If the boy moved during that time, he was beaten with a stick

    Sickening! I hope these two get the proverbial book thrown at them.

    But how are these monsters related to the boy and the 9 year-old girl? Grandparents? Foster parents? It's really not clear in the article.

    ETA: Just noticed in the comments section that these losers are the boy's grandparents.

    What more can we say? It is just a parade of cruelty and stupidity. What kind of world is it where making a kid kneel for 10 days is actually mild on the abuse scale, compared to the horrific beatings and murders we read about here every day? How can we help make this stop??? I am so sick of reading about it and I want to DO something to eliminate it. But I can't imagine how.

    Couple accused of forcing grandson to kneel for days face new charges

    In court today, Albert Cusson and his wife, Nancy, both took a turn before a judge -- Nancy was in a wheel chair.

    The judge set bond at $30,000 and ordered that upon their release, they are not to be around children.

    Later in the day -- after the Cusson’s appearance in court -- new charges were filed against the couple for the same type of abuse on the boy’s sister.

    "And he was whipped on top of all of that," said Sheriff Judd. "There's not adequate words to describe my anger and frustration at these two people."

    "We’re going to charge them with everything we can possibly criminally charge them with," said Judd. "Because they deserve it."

    Affidavit: Couple Forced Teen to Kneel for 9 Hours Straight


    Albert Cusson and Nancy Cusson, both of 12217 Old Dade City Road, are accused of forcing the 13-year-old boy to kneel for nine hours a day on a hard bathroom floor with his hands behind his back. When they caught him moving, they beat him, deputies said.

    When deputies found him, the boy had red marks on his back from Nancy Cusson, 47, hitting him with a stick when she caught him moving, deputies said.

    His knees were blistered and he was in visible pain when he walked.

    Albert Cusson, 57, said when he was young his father would punish him in the same manner.

    My 'favorite' quote from the article

    Department of Children and Family spokesperson Carrie Hoeppner would not comment on how many complaints have been filed on the Cussons but did reveal more information on their grandson.

    "The child in this case has been diagnosed with some profound mental health issues," she said. "But regardless, there's no excuse."

    IOW they aren't going to say how many times they left the kid with the grandparents, but they will give out his medical/mental health info in a heartbeat.

    I do wonder how much of his "mental health problems" stem from abusive grandparents and abandonment by the parents.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    And to think someone thought they would make better parents than Grandparents . . . wow if Gpa Cussons didn't see anything wrong with the way he was parented, as he endured the same thing. Hmmm . . . did your child endure the same thing? I wonder if these are Maternal or Paternal Grandparents. Did they adopt the children or were they wards of the State placed with family, or did the parents do a 3rd party guardianship? How were they able to keep the kids and isolate them so much . . . homeschool - no friends for the kids . . no visits w/bio parents or other family members?

    The article says the teen was home schooled at a place the deputies refused to disclose. I thought when you were home schooled that you were schooled at home?

    Not buying the punishment because he (Gpa) was subjected to it. It was just plain abuse. Mixed a meal all together in shake form and made them both sleep in the bathtub. No wonder the child has mental problems. Poor little guy, I'm so glad he ran away to save himself and his sister.

    WHY don't people like this give the children up to the authorities if they don't want to care for them? Would they be getting some sort of support payments for the children that they didn't want to part with?

    Poor sweet babies...of course they have mental health issues...they are victims of abuse. I think these two should be made to kneel for one year for every single day they did this and be flogged. People would stop this chit if the consequences were more severe.

    Didn't the child welfare authorities break HIPPA laws by relating that info on the boy?
