My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

Stupid and Cruel

I'm just saying, anyone who thinks that it is OKAY to make children sleep in CAGES should have to do their time under the same conditions. I can't believe they haven't been brought up on charges yet.

The Gravelles have said a psychiatrist recommended they make the children sleep in the cages, Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler (search) told the Norwalk Reflector. The parents also said the children, including some who had mental isorders, needed to be protected from each other, according to court documents.

The Gravelles received a subsidy from the state of at least $500 a month to care for the children.

Ugh. State subsidized child abuse. Lovely.
