Parenting so bad, it's criminal

A roach infested trailer is not a clown car

Not the trailer in question

I’ve had fun at the expense of people who live in trailers in the past. To be honest I’ve been in some trailers that would put a lot of homes to shame. Unfortunately this is not the case in this story and this is what tends to perpetuate the trailer park stereotype.

Recently in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, SEVEN people were arrested on child abuse charges after investigators allegedly found FIFTEEN children living in the trailer under squalid conditions. For the mathematically challenged that’s TWENTY-TWO people living in one trailer. Even if it’s a double wide that is some pretty crowded conditions.

With seven adults living in the ‘home’ you would think that they could all pitch in together and keep the place reasonably clean. You would also be wrong. According to reports the place was covered in roaches, the pre-requisite animal feces and that the kids were swimming in an above ground pool filled with algae. All 15 kids were taken into protective custody by DSS.

To perpetuate the stereotype even further there was this little tidbit within the article…

Lt. Kevin Bobo said one man’s ex-girlfriend and current girlfriend were living in the home. Investigators said one woman’s husband and ex-boyfriend were also living in the home.

The only way this situation could have been any more trailer trashy is if they also had a meth lab.

Seven people are charged with unlawful neglect of children in this case:

Wisconsin woman accused of raising kids in squalor:

Burnett woman charged with child neglect:

I admit, I’m still trying to lose some post-pregnancy weight, so losing my appetite after reading about this case isn’t a big loss. However, the details leave me feeling infuriated and wondering how anyone could be so devoid of any sympathy and compassion, especially for their own offspring.

Okay. On to the story.

25-year-old Secoy S. Koch-Miller of Burnett, WI is the “mother” of two boys, ages 2 months and 2 years. The baby daddy of the infant, while in jail, reported to detectives that when he had been at the home of Koch-Miller, the residency seemed uninhabitable. Articles don’t state the reason for his jail sentence, but we do know he had at least enough sense to report the squalor.

Detectives then spoke with human services, and the case worker, familiar with Koch-Miller, stated she had visited the home beforehand but was always denied entrance. Hmm…I wonder why.

Luckily, baby daddy’s statement was enough to get a warrant, and officers and the case worker entered the home last November. What they found was extremely deplorable.

The craptastic home was filled with so much junk, that some rooms were blocked off due to the sheer volume of stuff that had been hoarded.

According to one article, “the kitchen contained several dirty dishes, dead flies and other bugs and cat feces. The inside of the refrigerator and freezer was covered in black mold, maggots and decayed food. There was cold water, but no hot water, and the bathroom had only a toilet. The pipes for the shower and bath appeared to have been cut off. The toilet did not appear to be working.”

Yup, the toilet wasn’t working because the septic tank was too full.

Upon examination of the children, the 2-year-old was found to weigh only 20 pounds. That’s not a huge surprise considering what had been found in the fridge. The poor boy had bug bites all over his body, a bruised eye, and had spiders and spider eggs in his hair. (The thought of the little guy like that makes me want to cry!) To make horrific matters worse, he also had a respiratory and ear infection that required antibiotics.

The infant, on the other hand, was found in better condition, growing at a “more normal rate.”

Fortunately, the children were placed in foster care and the toddler has gained weight.

Koch-Miller was charged with neglecting a child causing bodily harm, a felony, and neglecting a child, a misdemeanor. An initial court appearance is scheduled for March 10th.

And as far as the home is concerned, Burnett town leaders are considering the condemning the building. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Children and animals removed from house in Clarence

Authorities investigate animal hoarding and child welfare case in Clarence

Amie Burkley, shown, and her husband Matthew were issued tickets to appear in Clarence Town Court after their animals were seized and children removed.

Amie Burkley hides away

The only thing on this planet that is worse than child abuse is animal abuse. I say that because at least children have cognizance of what’s happening to them and have some ability to fight back (if you’ve ever been kicked by a toddler or had your hair pulled, they’re pretty bloody strong!) These breeders of Clarence, Buffalo NY not only allowed their four children to live in filth and be neglected, but they also hoarded animals that they knew damn well they couldn’t care for!

The property of Matthew (37) and Amie Burkley (36) was raided after receiving a tip that four horses had died a few weeks ago. Animal control officers described the home as something out of a horror story. The house absolutely honked of animal shit and piss. Officers found a small pig, six dogs, numerous cats, prairie dogs and guinea pigs inside. More than two dozen other animals and livestock were found existing in a tumbledown metal barn outside, sick and starving. That’s a whole lotta caca being produced!

Two of the four children were home at the time of the investigation and they helped officers identify and round up the critters. The kids weren’t sick but they were underdressed for the chilly weather and were outside with no shoes and socks on. Still, living in a house full of animal shit and possibly mentally ill parents is not in the best interests of kids. The four kids are aged from 15 years down to 7 years. They’re now in the care of their relatives.

3 dogs had to be euthnanised and some horses may also had to be put down. The couple have been in trouble before for keeping more animals than they could provide for. It was found that there was only half a bale of hay that was supposed to feed all the live stock. To give you an idea of how inadequate that is: my sister used to have a pet rabbit. We’d give her half a bale of hay per fortnight and she’d devour half of it and poo on the rest of it. That would only feed a rabbit for two weeks, not various llamas, horses, goats, chickens and geese. Geese shit stinks by the way.

The breeders have expressed remorse over the events and did have good intentions for the animals. But as the old saying goes, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. They allowed animals to die from malnutrition and lack of veterinary care, and their children were forced to live in a home full of animal crap. Animal hoarding is a mental illness and often the animals are neglected, along with any children living in the home with the hoarders. Often hoarding stems from feelings of loneliness, but the breeders have four children to keep them company. Hoarders are also a danger to their children as they will often lash out if the child has the sense to throw anything away (or in this case sell or give the animals away).

Luckily no dead children and most of the animals were saved. The breeders been charged with least 5 charges of animal cruelty and four counts of endangering the welfare of a minor. They will appear in Clarence Town court at a later date. The town is working with other agencies to help rehome the animals and a sign has been placed on the Burkley’s door saying “Unfit for Human Habitation”.

I used to have quite a little menagerie of animals. We had a cat, a rat and a rabbit. Unfortunately the rabbit died a few months ago, but our animals were always healthy, had plenty of food and lots of exercise. We even took the rat to the vet after we found a lump on her (unfortunately it’s malignant) but we cared about our animals enough to get them vet care when they needed it. Animals, like children need care and attention. Neither the children nor the animals in this story got that.

How Are Babies like Dogs? – Ya Gotta Feed ‘Em

Charges Upgraded Against Parents 

Babies Starved and Beaten, Cling To Life In Little Rock Hospital

Slide show of the house

Burning with rage and crying at the same time.  I am, and I’m sure you are, too.  There is nothing uplifting about this story other than that the two babies are alive – currently.  There’s no assurance they will stay that way, poor things, but we can hope.  They are both in critical (but stable) condition at Arkansas Children’s Hospital 

Those starved little legs up there belong to either 2 month old Ricky Bruner Jr (son of Melissa and Ricky Sr) or of 2 ½ month old Eli Richard (son of “Angel”).   

In Fort Smith Arkansas, acting on a tip-off from an anonymous phone call, police found: 12 well-fed dogs, plenty of dog urine and feces, evidence of drug activity, and two neglected, beaten, starving babies.  Dear little Eli two broken legs, multiple bruises on his face, a hemorrhaging brain and possible other broken bones in different stages of healing.  What the hell…what the HELL…could a TWO MONTH OLD do to deserve such a beating?   Nothing.  Absolutely nothing.   What could three badbreeders do to deserve the same and more?  Oh, they already did it.  And here’s hoping the inmates wherever they land find a way to slowly, slowly starve them to the same pathetic state.  I hope these three bags of 100% pure human-evil concentrate suffer and suffer and suffer for what they’ve done.  

There were 10 cans of infant formula in the house.                         

Here’s some cut-and-paste from the 3/21/11 article about the charges:

 “Melissa Workman, 21, and Ricky Bruner Sr., 33, are being charged with first-degree battery, but their charge is a class Y felony, Shue said.

According to the first-degree battery law, the charge is a class Y felony “if the person knowingly causes serious physical injury to any person four years of age or younger under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life.” A class Y felony is punishable by 10 to 40 years or life in prison.”

 

Oh, life.  Let it be life!

Seriously.  I almost couldn’t write this one, but I felt that I had to.   We have to keep an eye on this case, on these babies, because we just HAVE to know whether they live or not.

Did online games lead to animal feces?

Police: Online Gaming Addict Neglected Her 6 Children:

Police in Uniontown, Pennsylvania will be filing child endangerment charges against Elizabeth Ruffner after finding her six kids living in filth and everybody’s favorite, animal feces. The excuse being given is that Ruffner was addicted to online games.

Police say there was no food in the house and that the kids’ mattresses look like they had been pulled from the junkyard. Their stepfather says that he tried to take care of the kids by bathing then and trying to clean up after them but since he worked it was hard to keep up with them.

Police say that the house looked like it had not been cleaned in years so I don’t think the problem was online gaming. I think the problem is that this bitch was lazy as fuck and just used the games as a crutch.

We are all responsible for our own actions no matter what our addictions may be. There is no excuse for allowing your kids to live among piles of animal crap. If you’re home all day playing games on the computer you have plenty of damn time to clean up the shit on the floor.

This also shows what kind of priorities were going on here as well. No food in the house but the internet bill was paid.

The kids have been removed from the home.

Thanks to Meredith for the tip.
