    LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Police say two children from suburban Chicago who were found bound and blindfolded outside a Kansas Walmart are in temporary protective custody.

    Lawrence police spokesman Trent McKinley says the presumed parents of the children have been arrested on suspicion of child abuse and endangerment and will appear in court Thursday.

    Dad had 3 DUIs, theft convictions, evictions...

    So glad their vehicle suddenly developed problems, and the shopper who reported it, just happened to go into a little used portion of the parking lot. Sounds like God intervened to me. Kudos to the woman for calling police. So thankful the kids are safe now.

    At first I was thinking that the teens had tied up the younger kids as a joke, but obviously that wasn't the case. I wonder why they left them outside the van. Have these children "run away" before, perhaps looking for help? How sad.

    Responding to a call from a concerned shopper Wednesday, police visited the store and spotted a 5-year-old boy sitting on the ground beside a large SUV with his hands tied behind his back, his legs bound and a blindfold covering his eyes. As an officer approached the car, he noticed a man standing near the vehicle.

    "When (the man) saw the officer, he tried to get away from him," Lawrence police spokesman Sgt. Trent McKinley said. The man ducked inside the vehicle and the officer, concerned that the man could be reaching for a weapon, used a stun gun and put him in handcuffs, McKinley said.

    So very sad. Sounds like this set of parents has a pretty long history of bad parenting and attention from agencies. Too bad the children were still in their care. sigh. I am shocked by the coldness of it. To bind and blinfold your kid and just leave him on the ground there beside your car while you shop? Most people abuse their kids in secret but this was pretty bold.

    I've lived in Lawrence a couple times. We don't hanker to crazed city folk abusing their children in our WalMart lots. .

    WOW! I am so glad the witness saw them and called 911. That vehicle was parked in a weird place.

    Those two have such a bad history. Guess it was time for them to move away from CPS eyes to a different state.

    From the link:

    Regarding the end of the world stuff, wonder if they'd indoctrinated the older one's, and that's why the wouldn't leave the vehicle initially.

    Now the hard part is going to be the process of getting these children into a loving, permanent family home. These so-called parents are going to fight it and drag it on so long, and it will delay the much needed help these kids NEED.

    They are still young, but are probably very damaged emotionally. If that is how they are treated IN PUBLIC, hard to imagine how they were treated in private at home.

    They need some basic unconditional love and affection and attention and counseling and
    I really hope the courts have the courage to cut off parental rights IMMEDIATELY, so these kids can start a new healthier life.

    American newspapers have to report the news - send out reporters or crews, then edit and publish copy or video. Daily Mail gathers what's been done already and posts it all on their site.
