Put the parents in the coop. Place food and water just out of reach. Problem solved

On the plus side, her breasts were much larger than those of free-range children.

Is she a hot chick?

Poor girl's brain is probably scrambled for life. I hope all of her suffering is soon over easy.

We went to Roberta, Georgia, the town where the family lived 3 years ago. A neighbor told us she had her suspicions about the family when one day, she says, the girl walked over to her house, knocked on the door and said, "Please help me. I haven't eaten in three days."

The woman said she began to cook for the girl, but was interrupted, when Diana Franklin, the girl's mother, grabbed the girl and according to the neighbor yelled, "You can't eat if you don't work."


So naturally the neighbor did nothing about that. Hey, at least she had a good story to tell the news later!

If she was locked up in a chicken coop, she had plenty of food in the form of eggs. Water might be a problem. She might have to kill one of the chickens and drain it's blood to drink and then eat the chicken. But blood is scarcely a proper substitute for good ol' H2O.

What kind of monster locks a child up in a chicken coop for days on end? I can see doing that to a teenager. But not a child.

You know that feeling of revulsion you get when you see something really disgusting, like a photo of some deep sea terror or that Florida cannibal victim? I get the same feeling when I read about "parents" like this. No ITG here, but I hope their suffering is long and painful.

I have a nice solution for these people. .22 to the back of the head, lime-lined pit. Done. I'm sorry, but if this is how you treat your child(ren), you have no business breathing oxygen anymore.

There are roughly eleven thousand cases of S. enteridis diagnosed in a year in the US (pop. three-hundred million) - personally, I'll take my chances and make my own aioli or a real gorram Caesar when I want one.

I wonder if this is a new thing? There used to be an Orange Julius store on Westmoreland in Dallas. I would stop in there and order up a large one and they would even put a raw egg in it. I must have consumed several hundred that way. I never noticed any detrimental effects.

I miss Orange Julius. The last one I was in was in a shopping mall in Aurora, CO. But a search on the Internet reveals that there are some around here. At least soem Dairy Queens that serve them. Maybe I'll seek one out after the transmiitter hunt this afternoon.

Of course, if I weren't lazy I would pasteurize them first, but that's too much trouble for home cooking.

Like with rare steak it's legal to serve as long as they have a disclaimer on the menu.

This movie is messed up. They actually got the family to reenact the whole thing and play themselves.

Came here to post that. Don't know if she's just as white trash as this family (it's very likely), but even when swamp justice is the only law you're willing to call surely you could say a few things to the right men about a family that just needs killin'. Unless you were raised the same way.

You can't eat if you don't work... isn't that a bible verse or something? Sounds like these assholes were using fundie parenting techniques that would make the sadistic son of a biatch who wrote To Train Up a Child want to call the cops...

When her parents felt she needed more work for the day, they said she was forced to go to a neighbor's house to clean and scrub the home.\

And how in the f--k can that neighbor live with themselves... cheap labor? What?

I had to work with my mom helping to scrub my grandma's house from time to time, but I didn't do it because I misbehaved, but because grandma couldn't anymore and it was about that time.

Several neighbors and witnesses said they watched the girl performing heavy manual labor including lifting large rocks, for hours in the extreme heat. Steven Balis said, "I've seen her out working in the gardens, digging ditches in the hot sun with two or three older boys watching her. I've seen her toting rocks up the road; she looked like she was in rough shape."

I really freaking hope each one of those witnesses made a call to CPS.

There's a difference between teaching your kids hard work and discipline and working your children to the ridiculous degree that equals abuse. Sigh.

If you ever check out the Puritans someday, this is basically their modus operandi. Suffering is the path to salvation, and any joy or celebration is the path to the devil. I don't remember the cult back in Jesus' time - the ascetics maybe? - who flogged themselves to holiness. It'd be a mental illness if it wasn't something so obviously deeply rooted in the human psyche. Pain is normal, everyone experiences pain and hates it, but it's far too easy to confuse unavoidability with necessity and start creating it needlessly.

read down far enough and it turns out the girl is adopted. these folks can stand a few years in the big house.

although they probably will get very few while the guy with two marijuana cigarettes get 20 to life.
