No indication they were abused? Physically, maybe, but I'd have to think that they were under some sort of mental/emotional abuse in order not to say anything about the conditions under which their sister was kept.Two daughters of the woman -- ages 8 and 10 -- also lived in the house but there were no indications they were abused, police said.
That certainly seems reasonable and wouldn't surprise me at all. The part that really gets me is that the article says the man is getting charged with child and sexual abuse, and with having sexual contact with a minor six times. I realize those charges are slightly more severe than a misdemeanor, but I really wish there were some legal loophole to give the man immediate, constant psychiatric supervision (A.K.A. mental hospital). Either that or beat him to within an inch of his life, recuperate him, and then do it again.emw said:No indication they were abused?

In this case, at least, the man sexually assaulted the girl, while the woman (though presumably she knew about it) did not.Mantat said:Now can someone explain to me why is that in cases like these the man always have more severe charges than the woman? It is clear in my eyes that both are criminal, sick and should be punished.
I don't want to start a "discussion" of a separate issue, but I don't think that people who say gay couples aren't suitable for parenthood are afraid that gay couples are going to torture children.Blue Velvet said:It angers me when people use well-worn but unsubstantiated arguments about gay couples not being suitable for parenthood when you often read about the torture that 'normal' men and women are capable of...

Plus, what does this comment have to do with anything? I don't mean to get on your case, but I always find it odd when someone has something on their mind and they'll use anything as proof supporting it. I'm not saying I agree or disagree with you here, but I'm saying that comments like this have no place in this thread. Save that for the political forum.
I apologize in advance, if this came off sounding harsh. I don't mean it to.
Sorry to have picked on you Blue Velvet. I just see so many off topic remarks like that in these forums. I guess I got sick of them, decided to say something, and yours was the first I saw...Blue Velvet said:It has nothing to do with anything. It was a throw-away remark. This isn't the Oxford Debating Society and I'm not using it as proof for anything...
If you want to run around drawing attention to every off-topic comment in every thread, that's OK with me.
No, I know exactly what you mean... I'm pretty bad about straying off-topic but I usually try and say something more interesting than 'this sucks' or 'I agree'... Let's put a stop to this diversion now... no need to apologiseMacaddicttt said:Sorry to have picked on you Blue Velvet. I just see so many off topic remarks like that in these forums.

A very, very underdeveloped conscience. But I wonder how someone could grow up with that underdeveloped of a conscience. It's amazing how people can go through life and never get a sense of what is right and wrong.Mechcozmo said:And how do they live with themselves is also interesting-- how did the parents think that what they were doing was "right"?
Wacked out fundamentalist theists do this kind of crap all the time. Proof: Andrea Yates ( the b#tch doing life for drowning her five children) had to protect the kids from Satan by killing them. Thank you god, thank you for your plan!!stubeeef said:Was just re-reading the story somewhere else, where do monsters like this come from?
This guy is going to get along FINE in the joint. I can see it now, somebody will shank his ass, and nobody will say a thing.The couple was booked Tuesday into the Pima County Jail. The man, 35, was charged with child abuse, two counts of child molestation and six counts of sexual contact with a minor.
Yup. Even in prison, there are various levels of perceived evil. And child molestation/abuse is the worst. He won't last.chanoc said:This guy is going to get along FINE in the joint. I can see it now, somebody will shank his ass, and nobody will say a thing.
Like you we also had to go through "reproductive therapy" before we were blessed with kids, so I am also totally blown away when people abuse children like that.emw said:Then I read about people who are incapable of recognizing the wonder and beauty that is their children, and instead choose to demean, demoralize, or even worse maim or kill them and I am horrified. In my mind, these are the worst kind of people.
