That stellar looking couple there, one Diana and Samuel Franklin, were arrested Tuesday morning in Georgia on multiple counts of cruelty to children and false imprisonment against their 15-year-old adopted daughter. It is alleged that they kept the girl locked in a freakin’ chicken coop and used a dog’s shock collar on her as a form of “discipline”. What the fuck happened to a good grounding from the phone and texting? Oh yeah, these are degenerate fucks we’re talking about. Not only does common sense escape them, but they’re downright evil to boot. The girl was taken into custody on May 25th based on an undisclosed tip and at that time, officials could not find said dog collar but DID find a receipt for the item. Upon arrest on Tuesday, they located the shock collar. The girl is said to have been given only bread and water to her for days on end as another “discipline”. Her “mother” claimed she was following the bible. I’m sick as shit of these monsters using the bible as some shitty excuse to torture their children. Diana and Samuel have 3 older boys by birth that had possibly aided in this girl’s abuse. Not blaming them, these poor kids were very likely forced to partake in this torture. No TELLING what their own childhoods were like.
These asswipes adopted this poor girl in 2009 and apparently the abuse started immediately and progressed to the point of shocking her. When I think of someone actually going to a store to purchase a shock collar and then forcing it around her neck, I want to kill them both. I have 2 dogs myself, that bark like crazy and I couldn’t imagine putting one on their little neck’s, much less a human being’s. Disgusting waste of fucking air. These two assholes posted bail that very night and are expected to appear in court at a later date.
Good news; no dead girl but Lord only knows the internal scars that will linger so much longer than the sting of that collar. May she overcome the evil of these two and have a happy life and a family that both adore and respect her.
