Again I have to apologize for sitting on a story that’s over a week old.
In Wheelersburg, Ohio police have arrested 31-year-old Bobbi Sue Pack. her mother 52-year-old Edwina Louis, and Pack’s boyfriend, 44-year-old Juan Carlos Sanchez. The trio have been accused of keeping three of Pack’s four children, ages 11, 9 and 8, chained to their beds and beating them with whips and paddles while also depriving them of food. Sanchez has also been charged with allegedly raping some of the children. None of the charges involve the youngest child, age 2. I guess they must have a sign in their house that says “You must be this tall to be chained, beaten, raped and starved.”
Police were tipped off when one of the kids e-mailed their teacher at their virtual school. Basically the kids were being home schooled and were only released from their bindings to do their lessons on the computer. Once again home schooling is used as a cover for child abuse. Now I’m not saying that all home schoolers are child abusers. I’m not even saying that a majority of them are. However there are too many people who use it as a form of child abuse camouflage. You can see more of my take on that here.
Also I always find it bizarre how groups of people like this, can get together and think that this is an acceptable form of parenting. Seriously, is there some hidden section of Match.com where these freaks find each other?
This also reminds me of a story from almost 10 years ago that took place in Ohio where a family, whose name escapes me at this time, kept their foster kids in a series of elaborate wooden cages. I’m really beginning to think that Ohio and Michigan are battling it out to see who can be the Florida of the Midwest.
It’s too bad these scumbags can’t be shackled top their cots while their cell doors are left open. That would be justice.
Thanks to Helen for the tip.
