fusillade762: A police spokesman said Patriarchias had been trying to adopt the girl but hadn't been able to reach the girl's birth mother to get her consent.Well this certainly isn't going to help.And WTF? It's not even their kid? Why is this child living with them??
Atomic Spunk: Developmentally disabled (i.e. retarded) children are much like chickens or parrots. They don't mind being in cages. They only need to be fed, given something to drink and their spaces need to be kept clean of poop, piss and other possible contaminants. They don't really need love because their minds don't understand love. If you tried to hug a chicken, it will run away. Do you want to know why? It's because a chicken has no need for love. Much like a retarded child.The problem is that although we like to think of ourselves as "civilized", we still have little understanding of the mind of a retarded child. I spoke to a professor who is noted for his work with retarded children, and has done extensive research for Harvard University as well as other top schools in the nation. He said that retarded children operate on the same level as unsophisticated animals, and can be treated as such with no negative repercussions to society. He has recommended for years that we house retarded children in human-sized coops. He said we just need to provide heating, minimal clothing and some bedding in their living quarters. Feed them twice a day and hose them off with high powered hoses. The dollar savings would be tremendous. He said giving love to a retarded child is really a waste of time since the payoff to society is nothing. No matter how much love they are given, they will never be able to really reciprocate, at least not to a level of sincerity that people of average intelligence would consider to be "normal". So he recommended that we treat them like chickens, because that's all the care they really require.
thatboyoverthere: Go fark yourself. I won't even dignify what you said with anything else.
Edwardo17: Bravo. I wonder how many bites you'll get?

Fark Rye For Many Whores: I've seen this movie, just get your scrambly furry sidekick to steal the keys from the guards.
Kali76: Cindy Patriarchias, 33....[assets.nydailynews.com image 635x396] More like 53. Damn.
halB: If she was in school, she would be thrown into an "isolation room." That is nothing more than a small, small padded room. (And what's the difference between a room versus a cage? Just that one is permanently affixed to a house.)If she was in a hospital, she would be strapped to a bed and be unable to get up.If she was committed, she would be put into a small, small padded room. And if she injured herself, she would be strapped to a bed.So why is it appropriate for the government to do this but not these people?I agree, they were negligent in not having supervision, but the "cage" aspect seems more like an illogical appeal to emotion. And in all of the examples listed above, she would only be checked up on every 10 minutes.
HoratioGates: Jeesh, you put a lid on the crib and everyone gets angry.
Meethos: All of you having hilarious titty attacks over what Atomic Spunk wrote, I'll let you in on a secret.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satirehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Modest_Proposal
