Is he dead? If not, it's still technically "temporary".

So you biatch if he's free to run around and harass people but you biatch even more if they keep him away from the public?  Who's the crazy one here again?

The brother told police the teen was restrained in the basement because they had "let him upstairs" in December and he ate nearly an entire bowl of fruit in one sitting.

He tried to eat something healthy and must be punished.

2013-02-06 05:31:19 PM
The teen's stepmother answered the door and told police she would go downstairs to wake him. Police asked her to stay upstairs while they checked on the teen.
Police reports gave this account:
The officers went down a flight of wooden stairs into a dark basement.
"I didn't do anything!" a voice from the darkness called out. "I didn't do anything! I didn't do anything!"


Jesus Christ.

They were later quoted as saying, "We got this one kid... he's got a forehead like a drive-in movie theatre, but he's a good ship. So we don't bust his chops too much. So, one day he gets out of the basement. So, I went out and I got him, uh, I got him a leash.  Yeah, one of those ones you can hook on the clothesline, and he can run back and forth and, uh, there's plenty of room for him to dig and play. That kid is really, uh, he's really blossomed."

Meh, I just figure this is what a day care center run by Farkers would look like.
 
2013-02-06 05:35:07 PM
Dear God, what a horrible story.

Since no charges have been filed, The Star is not identifying the teen, his family members or neighbors. The teen is now in state custody.

I call this a miscarriage of justice.  The dad should be rotting in a jail cell right now.

You mean there's a way to stop the teen who lives here from eating me out of house and home?  I thought non-stop eating was one of the definitions of puberty.

It's not always easy to start planning a project in September. You've got the holidays coming up, and that's always a distraction. Plus, if it's the end of your fiscal year, there may be some budgeting uncertainty. I've often seen end of year ideas get pushed off until March or so.
 
2013-02-06 05:48:32 PM
You know, I try to have sympathy for people who were raised horribly when they fail as parents.

I'm not feeling it here. In fact I'm feeling exactly the opposite.
 
2013-02-06 05:50:02 PM
As both a new parent and the younger brother of a mentally challenged person, this story makes me both stabby and cry at the same time.

Seriously, how the fark can you do that to your own offspring?

Yeah but Mother's Day is in a couple months and if she wants anything more than a macaroni glued card, she better get busy mending some fences.

Detectives said they have to research the family's background before submitting a case to prosecutors for review. Although the teen is considered an adult in Missouri, he is being treated as a child in the investigation because of his mental state. That means police must use a specially trained child expert to interview him.

Sounds like they're working on charges, they just need more time to get all the evidence together. So, no need to rage about the lack of charges unless nothing is filed later.

FunkOut: A 17 year old boy only being fed one packet of instant oatmeal, one packet of Ramen noodles, and two processed meat sandwiches at night? That's a starvation diet. One packet of instant oatmeal is barely enough to make a 5 year old happy for breakfast.


Consider how much physical activity he was likely getting.  You don't burn many calories handcuffed to a pole.

Well, wouldn't they burn a lot of calories if they were jogging through Warsaw?

It sounds like the family may have had problems resulting from the boy's eating problems. Like a dog he may have gorged on any food he could find then thrown up or shat all over the house.

I'm just guessing and even it this it doesn't justify family's response.
 
2013-02-06 06:06:17 PM
I'm pretty sure if I saw a kid still asleep outside at 6 AM I'd be asking them if everything was okay and bringing them the hell indoors. I mean, fark, that is not okay. It is  cold at 6 AM, especially in winter, and that can get dangerous.

Yeah.

When I was 17, I'd routinely have big snack after school.  You know, a box of stuffing when I got home from school.  A box of Kraft dinner would also be a good post-school snack.  Eventually my dad got a deep fryer, and so we'd make a couple of potatoes worth of french fries and eat those before dinner.  You eat a lot at that age; I don't think we ever had "leftovers" when my brother and I were teenagers.

I wouldn't feed that small amount of food to my six-year-old unless it was all at once for breakfast.

Some of us don't want to be charged with kidnapping.

The basement probably had better conditions than the local jail. But it's ok when the state does it.
