Rats and maggots?

Throw in some ginger, Thai peppers, water chestnuts, carrots, peas, onion, garlic, and Sesame oil, and you got yourself a fine stir-fry.

Serve over noodles or with rice.

I may be forgetting something.

Fark needs an 'asshole' tag.

I read "chicken and wife", and totalsecurity made complete sense. Then I re-read the line and said "wha?"

Gambling addicts mistreat and neglect their families. News at 11.

"Brittney Dove, Danny Dove's 20 year old daughter, and his mother believe that he doesn't deserve to be in jail. Both insist it was his wife's fault for their neglect and drug addiction."

Yeah, its the wifes fault she was held prisoner in a waste filled room. What about the children?

I'm amazed that one of the children found time to learn to speak Gibberish, even to the extent that it became his only language.

Embracing another culture is good for us all, especially Gibber-Americans

How did the rats and maggots find the part of the house with the wife and kids if it was a secret?
didn't RTFA

Chester isn't far from Union, SC. Is there something in the water around there that affects parenting skills?

Man I feel so morbid for saying this, but would someone please cue the artist formerly known as Prince (or known again as Prince). We have a old song of his he needs to sing.

/Bad muppet, bad.

Yeah, its the wifes fault she was held prisoner in a waste filled room.

It doesn't say in the article that she was held prisoner. More like she stayed there for the drugs. She left once, but then came back (for the drugs). Sounds like she's just as much at fault for the condition the children were living in, if not more.

I have a strong suspicion it's the inbreeding.

Yeah. But it could also be battered woman syndrome.

All sympathy aside for the abused wife and kids:

re: the sister and mother saying he doesn't deserve to go to jail -- of course he deserves to go to jail, and so do you for being a bad aunt/grand-mother and condoning this!

Can we get our own tag already?

One would think that the gambling would have given them something else to do because get nasty with their own kin and farm animals. This is SC though.

Hell yeah, anyone else who knew about this and did nothing is at fault. If this is the same article I read a few days ago (I'm not far from there and it's been all over the news here), then Children's Services was called about this repeatedly but never investigated.
 
2007-05-13 06:38:21 PM
I'm sure it was all his fault and the mom didn't enjoy the painkillers and cocaine at all.

"The younger one only speaks gibberish."

In South Carolina that makes him an advanced student!



/In Charlotte, NC.
// Not to bad here you can actually afford a house.

"The older boy can only speak broken English. The younger one only speaks gibberish"

That's some fine parenting there.

Aristocrats?

The father doesnt live in a secret maggot and flith infested room. Instead he plays poker in a perfectly clean room. He makes the children stay in the house most of the time. Plus, he gives drugs to the mom.

How is it not the father's fault?

/has been to Chester once
//Once

Wow this is much more common than I would have thought. To think just yesterday there was another link on fark that was very much the same story....
 
2007-05-13 07:43:24 PM
so whats the problem?
 
2007-05-13 08:30:12 PM
Badoozie, you get the seat next to me. After you clean the curry chicken off my monitor.

What really surprised me was the lack of surprise I felt once I found out it was in SC. I live about 10 miles from the border, and you can smell the stupid if the wind's right.
 
2007-05-13 08:47:51 PM
I, for one, was surprised this didn't happen in North Georgia.
 
2007-05-13 09:01:48 PM
Next time my asshat inlaws ask us, "Why don't y'all spend any time over in South Carolina?" I shall refer them to this story. I stay to the north unless I'm going to the beach.
 
2007-05-13 11:06:09 PM
This kind of thing happens all over the country, not just in the south.
 
2007-05-13 11:11:21 PM
FTFA - "The woman once tried to flee with her boys three years ago when she stole Dove's pickup truck. He was able to persuade her to return home. To keep her from running away again, it was common for Dove to slip her painkillers and cocaine. The boys were rarely let out of the house, but had to stay close to the home when they were able to go out. Because of the boys' lack of schooling, they are generally afraid of other people. The older boy can only speak broken English. The younger one only speaks gibberish."

How do you even begin to undo the damage done to these kids?
 
2007-05-13 11:28:22 PM
pushthelimits

I disagree. We've seen two articles in two days alone where this happened in the same state, and city even!
 
2007-05-14 12:57:43 AM
Rats and maggots notwithstanding, if the boys are 4 and 8 and incapable of human speech, mom is just as culpable as dear dad. I could raise kids in a cereal box and they'd farking have excellent vocabulary and be able to carry on a lucid conversation in any company.

/did not raise her kids in a cereal box, although sometimes a house in the suburbs might seem a lot like one

You would think with the money he was making in the gambling and drug trade he'd hire a maid. I mean crap man use your head.

Very tiny kids.
