Brillo Pads – They’re Not Just for Dishes Anymore
I wasn’t going to do another story today, since I have already given you so much to talk about. You have April to thank for my change of plans. She made me do it. Meet Linda and Robert Williams….
It seems a couple in Carson City Nevada think that locking their 3- and 5-year old boys in a bedroom of their trailer is a good parenting technique. The morally destitute female reproductive vessel also liked to keep them really clean – she scrubbed the 3-year old’s face with a brillo pad, causing his face to turn into one large, infected abrasion. Be sure to check out the second article link for Linda’s version of the cause of the 3-year old’s injuries. The 5-year old had two black eyes. In addition, the house was filthy, there were no toys for the kids, the food was locked up to keep them out of it, the bedroom door was kept shut with a sliding bolt on the outside, and the bedroom windows were boarded from the inside. Did I mention the two urine-filled toddler potties that were on the floor of the bedroom? The children were found huddled together on an upper bunk bed, sharing a blanket. The 5-year old refused to come out from behind the blanket, and the 3-year old could not be awakened. They were both transported to the hospital. It was the first time either of them had been seen by a doctor in three years. There is no word on their condition, but they have been placed in state protective custody.
But Linda and Robert were not completely bad people….they had a dog (breed not specified, but I bet Trench has a suggestion) which was well groomed, and appeared to be well taken care of. Also, the nasty snatch worked as a caregiver. Really?!?! Apparently not at home, she didn’t. According to authorities, she also wrote a ‘letter of apology’ for the boys’ treatment. Oh. OK. That makes it all better then. I’ll be sure to ask the inmates to write a letter of apology after they get hold of you.
Linda and Robert Williams have been charged with child abuse, false imprisonment, and child neglect. They are each being held on $100,000 bail.
