Is it just in the water in Florida? I would ask if they teach a special course on child abuse, neglect, murder, rape, torture, abandonment, etc… in the schools in Florida, but I know that not to be the case since I went to middle school and the 1st year of high school there. Maybe it’s more of a senior year elective class?
38-year-old Michael Marshall and 48-year-old Sharon Glass of Titusville, Fl, have been charged with three counts each of aggravated child abuse and three counts each of child neglect after cops found Marshall’s emaciated 12-year old son lying on the floor inside a locked bathroom at his home. Punishment for? Can anyone guess? Stealing food, of course. What else, right? He also had been strapped to a bed or locked in a bathroom for days or weeks at a time over the past year.
Police were responding to a report of a child being caged up and suffering from abuse inside the home and went to check things out. That’s when they found the boy and two other kids (not starving and emaciated, or caged up for that matter). The two other kids have since been removed from the home and are in the care of Fl DCF.
Apparently, Marshal pulled his son out of school back in 2010 after he’d been investigated for concerns about the environment that the boy was living in. No better way to hide from prying eyes that you’re abusing your kids then to yank them from school and begin to “home school” them. A neighbor says she saw the boy last year sometime and he looked slim and that of an 8-year old, but didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary.
No word on his current condition, or where he is – although I assume still in the hospital and eating a lot and gaining weight. The 2 piece of shit breeders are being held without bond. Also no word on the boy’s bio-mom.
Thank God someone called and the police went to check it out, that’s the silver lining to this story.
Thanks to my BFF Becky and all the other tipsters that sent this one in.
