Sounds like something from a horror movie.

I'm sure they wouldn't hurt a fly

No doubt about it, have you ever been to Houston?

"...washing dishes in the bathtub. Pill and alcohol bottles were littered on the floor."

Sounds like my first apartment. Except for the part about washing the dishes.

Take away all the other abuse and neglect and have just the "living with the corpse of your dead brother" part and that would be enough by itself to screw up all these kids. Damn shame.

Not to sound like an Internet tough guy but since I don't believe in religion I would like to volunteer to join an effort to build a "special hell" for those two adults who left those children to suffer and killed one of them.

If that guy gets the death penalty I think he should be beaten to death just like the boy was.

And I don't personally believe in the death penalty.

They ate him didn't they. With a nice Chianti and some fava beans.

Am I the only one wondering what the medications were that the mom and boyfriend left behind?

I assume they weren't the 'good stuff', like you might buy off someone illegally or they'd have taken them with them.  Maybe anti-psychotics or similar?  Do those have value on the street?

Also, how long ago had the mom moved out?  I assume more than a month, if they were getting 'monthly' food deliveries.

/and for those who might have a power outage: ramen is already cooked, so can be eaten like a cracker in an emergency

I do not believe in the death penalty. I do not believe in the death penalty. I do not believe in the death penalty.

If, however, they want to take these two adults and force them to live out the rest of their lives in the conditions the boys were forced to endure, I think I'd be OK with that.

Stories like this make me so incredibly sad.  I know bad things are going on in the world at any given moment but when a story like this comes out I can't help but think, during that time frame, how I was going about my days probably worrying about some little thing while these poor kids just tried to stay alive.  Those parents need to be removed from this planet, no questions asked.

"The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members." Gandhi

There were countless missteps and dropped balls that made this scene possible, from top to bottom, and for a long, long time.

I know it's fantasy. But consider the money this country spends on maintaining the world's most powerful war machine, subsidizing the companies of the one percent, the tax breaks for their leaders, on the Super Bowl...pick your own capitalist extravagance, and imagine instead that money and effort were spent on looking out for and taking care of each other that spit like this isn't possible, anywhere, was left to horror novelists and screenwriters. It isn't for lack of ability, but a matter of values and budgeting.

You seem to be living in the wrong country. What is it, man?  snap out of it.  Get out there and do some shopping, like a good American.  We don't have time for this nonsense.  THE ECONOMY needs you.

Ok, I'm imagining a government so powerful and omniscient that it can make it so things like this aren't even possible. Oh wait, now I'm imagining the election of a competent version of trump, who uses that system to strip minorities of their parenting rights en masse.

I can't understand how anyone can have lived through trump and still think giving the government more power over our lives is a good idea.

So, this Coulter guy, shame he didn't OD many years ago before he could create this horror. Hopefully he's been identified by the saltier fellows in his prison already. I certainly want the state to execute him. Don't care if the death penalty is a deterrent. I like it, and like that it terminates the existence of trash like this Coulter fellow. There's a wholesome cleanliness to that ultimate outcome. But, I don't want them to zap him to soon. I have no credible evidence for the existence or characteristics of an after life. I tend toward believing, but in a hunch/feeling sort of way. But, I certainly believe horrible suffering exists on this plane, and I'd like ole boyo Coulter to experience as much of it as he can take until he's completely broken. Then the state can turn off the lights and send him to what may or may not be next.

I hate reading stories like this, always brings me down a notch thinking I had a bad life growing up when it was only because of my perspective. I had a great childhood looking back.

The kiddos get 9 out of the 10 things they ask for usually and act like their lives are insufferable because they have some basic chores to take care of. I don't think it would be beneficial to have them read articles like this but how would you really demonstrate that they have good lives and are well cared for. That there are plenty of other children who would gladly trade their living situation for theirs and be grateful for it.

Maybe take a Christmas off and volunteer at a shelter or something?

My father had me read articles like this as a teenager. We'd be at the dining room table each with our sections of paper (there were always two or three papers on the table), and he'd slide over an article--which we commonly did with each other every day for any number of interesting articles. But they were sometimes of a teenager that met one of the perils he'd been warning me about with cars, booze or drugs, or whose father had beat him or neglected him to death something like in this story. The point being bad things do happen that he's concerned about me, I had it better than I thought, and that despite the rules and lecturing, he wasn't the bastard my angry teenage mind told me he was.

I used to politely listen to that argument as an honest political philosophy of governing best by governing least--probably by reducing their taxes, but in actuality the taxes of people far above their pay scale. And then I better saw the electoral choices of the people making it and what those officials chose (the waste I referenced in my post). That's where your Trump types come in and we have a bat spit crazy House and Senate like we see today, giving us our "rights" by not working for anyone we actually see or meet and telling us they're working to keep the bastards from assuming power.  The power to bastards turning out to be the poor minorities you act as if you're defending here. (It's Congress that controls the purse strings.)

A little more info here:

So farked up.  Two of the boys may be on the autism spectrum.   They weren't attending school.   Neighbors would also give them food, but, it seems, never went too deep to what is going on.

I don't believe in the death penalty, but I'd be perfectly fine with both of them in general population for the rest of their miserable lives.   With the full knowledge of what they did known to the rest of the inmates.

Not to worry.
I know these children were failed badly by every conceivable social program invented not to mention basically every adult in their life and have suffered the kind of emotional torture that strains comprehension but with the top flight mental health care system we have in place here in the old US of A they will be back on the monkey bars in no time and will definitely not be making coat racks out of peoples spinal columns.
