In Manchester, New Hampshire, a women, her ex husband, and her boyfriend were arrested for child endangerment, and attempted murder. They had 4 kids, all under the age of 6. These cruel people duct taped the kids to chairs and then taped their mouths shut when the left the house. They also molested all of the kids. The men would hold the kids under water in the bath tub untill they passed out. Can you believe this? This made me sick just listening to it on the news. How can someone do this to their own children? They need to go to jail for like...maybe even face the death penalty.

Yes, it's terrible, although not shocking. My heart goes out to those kids and I hope they find the love they need. My own children came from an abusive and neglectful home before being placed in foster care. We adopted them a few years ago (they're sibling-we adopted all three of them) and although what they endured has long lasting effects, they have made great strides in overcoming their early trauma. In the case with these four children, I hope they terminate parental rights quickly and give these kids a chance at a happy life.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU in behalf of all the abused and neglected children of the whole world. I wish there were more people who are like you. Kids should be protected at all costs. Parents who neglect and abuse their children should be jailed for life.

You are right they should not be allowed to have kids , Yet when they do these things they get less time in jail then people who steal money . I think they should put them in a room with other parents and let them punish them , I would go help them do it wouldn't you xx

That really is horrible. People do some sick things to kids. I could never do anything like that to my baby.

Wow, that's horrible. When I hear stories like this, I almost want to make it mandatory to screen parents before they have children. I mean, I wouldn't want children born to people like this, so sometimes I think up and coming parents should have to go through a psych evaluation before a child is born into their home.
