    He is reported to have had bedsores. Which means that for a long period of time, he wasn't even moving around and still had abuse done to him!

    I've got 5 and i look around I see socks sticking out from under the coffee table, flip flops, a pair of binnoculars, from under the couch, cheerios spilled from todays after school snack in the middle of the floor, 2 clothe baskets of clothes to be folded and put away on the couch, a folder of homework that spilled just a few minutes ago, toys all over the place as well. That is just my living room within 5 feet of the computer desk LOL

    Something definitely hinky with the clean house and 6 kids

    They always call an ambulance or transport to the hospital after. Why is that, I wonder?

    I mean, they can torture and brutalize a child over a period of years and months, but when they get the expected outcome (and perhaps desired outcome) of the treatment, they clean up and call an ambulance?

    I am too sad to be outraged. And they will get 10-15 years for child abuse, instead of first degree murder. And they will get out for good behavior in three. Especially in this state. Go ahead, MI, prove me wrong.

    The reason I know this? Two Words, Kirk Coleman.

    It just all seems so futile. We cry and are outraged and angry over these cases, but there is always a new one and nothing changes. How do we stop it? We can't. That is the sad fact of the matter. CPS is failing, but society is failing also. What has created these types of people? Are there really more and more cases or is it just better reporting? It seems endless and hopeless. My heart aches for each one of these children who have suffered so deeply.
