Disturbing case of child and animal abuse in South Carolina — 5 Comments

  1. i think if u cant take care of your animals properly u really should NOT have a child let alone 3+. its sad 2 think about those poor animals & what their living conditions were, but then when i think about the impact said environment can have on a child it brings tears 2 my eyes! as far as the gov’t assistance, etc bit goes, THAT is kind of a prejudiced opinion, isnt it? besides, there r guidelines as 2 ones income, etc that dictates how much assistance one gets & 4 how long, etc in addition 2 having 2 have proof of such need, & n some cases there r check-ins, visits, etc as well. we rly shouldnt speculate on the number of kids she has/had as there r ppl that have that many kids that fast. though not a common occurrence, it IS possible 2 deliver & then get pregnant again n the same year(though its not recommended o nor ideal 4 the mother 2 the best of my knowledge). also her being unmarried shouldnt b an issue as there r many “functional” families that r 1-parent households, while there r just as many dysfunctional families that r a part of a 2-parent household. it also appears that one of the childrens fathers is/was involved 2 some degree so it is possible that someone was trying 2 help or something(though what THAT constitutes i cant imagine). another thing is “hoarding”, as a dysfunction, typically deals with the gathering of inanimate objects; not pets, or the like. it does sound a lot like a PPD(Postpartum depression) type situation though, but we would need 2 have a bit more info 2 know 4 sure. my heart breaks 4 these kids & what their home life has been thus far. i will definitely b keeping my eye on THIS story as well.

  2. Speaking of children: People who let cats roam free should also be investigated by Family-Services & Social-Services if they have any children. If people see their cats as family members, and then let them roam free to be hit by cars, lap up antifreeze in gutters, or get killed by animal attacks; this does not bode well for them being responsible for ANY other lives in their care……..(remainder deleted by Admin as rude)

    • What is a great tragedy is that you are allowed to roam free. You should be caged and gagged 😉 You have probably spent time in prison and I’d hope you end up there again for a long time. That would stop you hurting cats.

  3. Michael, she is a sick, sick individual. . .and, I agree — you would think SOMEONE has seen or suspected something!! Her and her significant other need to be locked up for life — and NEVER have access to children or anipals EVER!!! Praying the children and the remaining anipals don’t suffer from all this trauma. . .

    • She is ill. I wonder though if it would be better to treat her as a mental patient rather than only punish her.
